I'm starting my own DDO Political Party:

The Cronyism party.

I don't believe a DDO president has any sort of real authority. Any actual change to this site requires some sort of influence or relationship with Juggle, which exists independently of the presidency. It does not seem (to me) that any sort of power will be given to any new president simply because they are president, nor does it seem (to me) that any extant power will be revoked simply because a person is no longer president.

So what value is the president, then? I have no fucking clue.

However, I still wish to participate. Drama (not directly involving me) is so much fun!

So. I'm selling my vote. I care not one wit of any false promises or unrealistic policies. My stance is "What can you do for me?"

My vote is going to the highest bidder, and I invite others to join me in this mercenary party.

Long Live Cronyism!

We should segment into parties by perceived friend groups. So the conservative "coalition" forms one, and everyone else figures it out.

lol. Ironically, this idea has some merit. A very, very small amount mind, but does highlight an important point: why should juggle care? Alas, this has been discussed many times.
