Hello. I would just like to remind everyone to vote for us in the next presidential election.

Some folks have started saying that this is a two person race between Medic and Airmax.

Well, let me make a point here. Medic is the former VP of my current VP.

The reason he left the ticket was because he didn't have enough time to be VP. How are we supposted to believe he has enough time to be president.

Airmax is actually running with Innomen. Yes, the same Innomen who's failed leadership has hurt DDO for the past year.

I recommend we go for a real change. A positive change.

Here is my platform. I humbly ask for your support:

What about Tvellalot? Last I checked, he and Thaddeus had more percentage of the vote than you and 16k did.

I see you are looking to get the noob vote and the mentally impaired vote.

He dropped out.

Here is the platform...their statements in bold. Mine underlined.

1.) History Forum- We strongly support the idea of adding a history forum to DDO. This is something we have always been strong supporters of.


How do you propose getting Juggle to go along with this actually? Do you have a coherent plan?

2.) Banning- We only support banning in circumstances where it is very obvious that banning is appropriate. Nono and Russianfish99 both would be examples of this. However, we are willing to consider trials in other extreme cases, where the member in question is not a clear troll but does cause a substantial amount of harm. Izbo10 is an example of this.

In other words, you wish to keep the status quo.

3.) Big Issues Reform- As all candidates have pledged, we will be strongly fighting to reform the "Big Issues" to fill the needs and views of the DDO members of 2012.

This is currently happening. Under the Innomen administration which apparently has not done enough.

4.) Creation of a DDO Constitution- We support the creation of a DDO constitution, to protect the rights of the members of DDO. It also will lay out clearly how the banning policy will be carried out and in what situations it applies. There will be more specifics on this to come.

Who said we have rights? Using this website is a privilege is it not? Why is the TOS not enough?

5.) Creation of a DDO Legislative Branch- We support the creation of a legislative branch for DDO. Every 2 months, DDO will elect four representatives that will vote on various reforms. If their is a tie, the VP will break this. After the constitution gets ratified, all members of the DDO congress as well as the president must support any change.

Wouldn't this just make it harder to reform anything about the site? You wish to make this website more bureaucratic thus, decreasing the chance of you accomplishing anything. As a debate site, don't you think there will be much debate slowing the reform process? What makes you think a constitution will be ratified?

6.) Team Debates- We support and will fight for the creation of team debates. There are various ways that these could work. There will be more specifics on this to come.

How exactly are you going to force Juggle to do this?

7.) Cellphone Verification- We support the elimation of the cellphone verification requirement. We are open to alternatives ways to fight multi accounts for this issue.

Why? And what other ways?

8.) Profanities and Forum Censorship- We support eliminating all forms of forum censorship. This includes profanities and all caps posts, which we think should be allowed.

Why should profanities and all caps be allowed? A mature individual should be able to get their point across without cursing. Juggle has the full right to limit cursing. Oh yea, once again, how are you going to get Juggle to go along with this?

9.) Voting Requirements- We fully support returning voting requirements from 500 posts or 5 debates to 100 posts or 3 debates.

The president does not have this power.

10.) TOS Reform- The TOS can be changed if all members of the DDO congress and the president agree that it should be.

DDO does not have this power. The TOS is set by Juggle. The TOS can only be changed if JUGGLE wants it to be changed. Why would Juggle want to change a legal document which was constructed, most likely, by lawyers? Jimtimmy, do you have the legal expertise to construct a electronic contract?

This is the platform that 16kadams and I are running on for president and vice president.

We understand that these changes will be hard to achieve. But, we can pledge that we will do our best to achieve them.

Innomen has failed, in his most recent term, to achieve even basic reforms. Nothing is getting done.

Considering Juggle has just pledged they will support change, something is being done.

The other candidates are largely running on pledges to continue Innomen's policies.

And you are running on empty promises.

That is not what we are doing. We pledge real change, and we are willing to say that Innomen has failed as a leader.

But, where is your plan to accomplish this change?

Thank you. Vote for Jimtimmy and 16kadams for president and vice president.

I'd be surprised if a candidate supported something which did not favor themselves.

True. But my point is the only reason he gives a darn about this is because without this change, he loses a TON of his supporters that are eligible for voting.

Yup..well...it won't be changed before the election anyway so it is kinda irrelevant...

Gonna repost this for the fourth time now....

1) When you left DDO some of your last words were about how you made up the DDO elite, that it was an absurd idea you used for comedic effect and to hopefully gain support.... My question is how do you expect people to see your next platform as legitimate when you confessed that your last one was made up?

2) In one of the three forums you made upon your return to DDO, when asked whether or not you would run for president you replied by saying "probably not", and 11 minutes later you announced you were running and havent even made a platform. Why the impulsive change so fast?

3) Why did you make 16k your VP........ Again?

4) You have also confessed to making up lies about yourself for pity from other people on DDO and you confessed to harassing DDO members who have only been nice to you. What would make you a trustworthy candidate?

5) Why did you decide to come back and did it have anything to do with 16k dropping out? (I ask this because the timing between your arrival and 16k's dropping out was impeccable and it seems like you came back to replace 16k's campaign)

6) Last time your main campaign goal was to rid DDO of the DDO elite and make it so that people didnt live in perpetual fear of being banned, what will be your main stance this time?"

I had planned on starting some courses this summer to get my nursing license. I had a change of heart about leaving the streets as a paramedic, and couldn't go through with it. That time will no longer be taken up by school. Time will not be a factor.

Airmax is actually running with Innomen. Yes, the same Innomen who's failed leadership has hurt DDO for the past year.

I recommend we go for a real change. A positive change.

Here is my platform. I humbly ask for your support:

Well, if nobody else posts in the interview thread, it will be more clear that they are dodging issues if they fail to do so...
