The time is here, the time is now. Please cast your ballots for who you want to represent you as the ten people and the ten debates you want to nominate into the Hall of Fame.

To cast your vote for a person please state, please say "Vote ___________" and make sure it is bolded. To cast you're vote for a debate, please say "Vote ________________________" and make sure the "Vote" is bolded. If you vote for multiple people or multiple debates, please format it like the below.

Example:

Vote:

1.______________________
2.______________________
3.______________________
4.______________________
5.______________________

Also, in the highly likely case that side conversations happen, please do not bold non-vote statements. I use the bold to help count accurately. You can vote for up to ten people and ten debates at maximum. To keep honesty and integrity, I will be constantly making sure there is no voter fraud.

Remember, to vote, you need either 500 forums posts OR 5 completed debates. You can not vote for yourself which makes it quite interesting. These nominations will later become the actual elections with choosing five out of the ten people.

Also the requirements to be voted into the Hall of Fame are that you can't vote for yourself or anyone with the same IP address as you but you can vote for you're own debates.

Everybody who is nominated will be given a chance to win in the top five to have their own biography of about one paragraph long that details how they have contributed to DDO, what makes them worthy of being in the Hall of Fame, and then a few words about what their views are. Voters will vote who gets into the Hall of Fame and voters will also have a say in what should be written about that person which will reflect them forever. They voted for them so they should be able to give a reason why they voted for them.

Debates which get nominated will go to the top five to compete for having the title of the debate, who was in it, and then the URL of the debate will be posted in the Hall of Fame for everyone to click and see for themselves.

This thread will remain open until June 23rd, Saturday at 12:00 PST. The official election will start at June 23, 12:00 and end on June 25th,12:00. The Hall of Fame getting the debates and people will be done within the next 30 days of the election. Thank you.

GO!

What exactly is the point of this other than a popularity contest?

This is not a popularity contest. This isn't even about being popular. This is just a part of vital DDO history to look at the members who have been most influentiall and helpful to DDO and to see some of the best debates of DDO to see what quality there is to them. Now, if you dislike it, please go ahead and leave as you care bout nothing on DDO except your views.

Vote

1. Danielle
2. RoyLatham
3. Innomen


First two because of debating/forums/voting.
Innomen mainly because of his two terms as president and mod.

Not sure who else I'll vote for.

This is entirely because I'm the Mod. If it was Imabench, LK and kadams would be licking Ima's foot. This is just because some people (well, just 1) are racist or have something against me.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

lol, this is why we grew apart, not the elections. I am not jealous of ima, and dont care about this. I am happy not to be him, actually.

DetectableNinja and Thett3, please stop trolling. Please. it not only is offensive towards this motion but more like a teaser to mock the actual thing. You are not only a disgrace to society but also bring an unhealthy atmosphere when you keep trolling like this. If you were in something that actually had lots of votes like the actual election, go ahead. But to mock something that is already being spit upon is disgraceful and hurtful.

I would just like to point out that I genuinely don't like how you just responded to us, VK.

I know we were trolling, but the thing is that you seem to equate our value as members with popularity/number of votes. The fact is hat thett has a history of trolling, yes, but it was all light, comedic, not in any way meant to abuse. I have also trolled a little bit (mainly with 000ike), but it was all in the purpose of fun and actual intellectual discourse. We are valuable members of this site, and to call us out for one incident is really inappropriate in my view Our behavior here was a bit disruptive, but it was intened to be light and fun. It was meant to be levity.

You used rather heavy-handed language against us too--stuff that you really just don't tell people. We're disgraces to society? Ouch. That honestly did hurt, VK. I'm not afraid to admit it.

I'm not afraid to admit we were wrong in our behavior in this thread, and I apologize for that. But I feel your reaction to it was not appropriate, and was quite disregarding of what true value is to the site, treating votes like they are the equivalent of worth. Again, I'm sorry for our behavior, and this outburst, but I felt like I had to say it.
