I would like to thank everyone who voted in the election, and everyone who contributes to this site.

I'd like to thank my opponent, Medic, whom I hope will join me in some capacity as I enter the role of president. I have a lot of respect for Medic and, had I not been running, I would have proudly placed a vote for him.

I would like to give special thanks to those who helped me in my campaign.

Most importantly, I'd like to thank Innomen, whose insight and advice is invaluable. I hope I am able to live up to the standards he has set for the position, and I am grateful to have him as my VP.

Oryus, who helped me every step of the way, and without whom I likely could not have reached this point.

Imabench, who helped me from the very beginning, and whose absence was felt significantly by the campaign. He has been missed.

DarkKermit, Wnope, F-16, RoyalPaladin, Mirza, Freedo, JaxsonRaine and Nur-Ab-Sal, as well as many others, all lent their support on multiple occasions, so I would like to express my deepest gratitude to them as well. I'd also like to thank Viper-King for his excellent work as the election moderator.

Tomorrow I will become DDO's next president, and will begin to work on all the various projects that I have been campaigning on. I will attempt to bring change where it is needed, and to maintain the quality of the site we have grown accustomed to.

I want to reiterate that the role of DDO president is nothing if not a service position, so I urge all members to contact me at any time if they have any concerns, questions, comments or anything else. I also ask that any members who would like to be involved in helping the site in some way get in touch with me so they may have that opportunity.

Once again, thank you to everyone. Let's party, drinks are on me for the next hour.*

Extra:

I never realized how highly you all thought of me. This has truly been a humbling experience. To reward my supporters for their votes and advice, I've asked Nur-Ab-Sal to make a video explaining my newest idea for the site. If you voted for me, I think you're really going to enjoy it. It will truly enrich everybody's experience here on DDO and bring them exactly what they want more of: airmax1227.

(Joking aside, this vid was actually made as part of the campaign. I decided though not to post it, as I was concerned it might be viewed as an attempt to attack JimTimmy and the idea of a history forum. This was not at all my intent, as it was only meant to be satire.)

Once again, thank you to everyone, I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish together.

Just outa curiosity how many total votes were there?
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

61 votes out of a possible 5000+ That means everyone voted for their "friend" basically. A popularity contest. But hey that's OK. But Mr President don't let it go to your head. You only received half of less than one percent of potential votes.

61 votes out of the few members of the 5000 who were either active or truly cared for the presidency...sir....

Actually, no. My vote was based entirely off Airmax's and Medic's presidential platforms. I believed that Airmax's was superior. I also assume that the majority of people voted for the candidate's platform that the believed to be superior.
