Airmax/Freedo 2012

I have asked Freedo to run as my VP in the next election. Freedo is a longtime member and understands DDO probably better than anyone. He knows that the site is supposed to be fun, and will offer his unique perspective on things. I'm grateful that he has accepted this invitation, and I am excited to see what we can achieve together.

While I understand that VP is a demotion from Freedo's DDO dictator role, I feel that Freedo will be such a great asset to the administration that I have convinced him to add VP to his workload. We both recognize that it may be difficult for him, but if anyone can handle it Freedo can.

I realize that bringing 'the dictator' into this office may be a risk, therefore Juggle has agreed to increase my secret service detail just in case Freedo decides to stage a coup. I've also got a huge list of responsibilities in store for Freedo, hoping to keep him too busy to overthrow any future DDO government.

I'd like to thank Freedo, and every DDO member.

Vote,

Airmax/Freedo 2012

(Elections are in December)

man, no one has mentioned the election in at least a month (that I've seen) til now. I was seriously hoping that we would pass the election and realize that we forgot to hold it xD but I'm excited, the election threads and debates are always fun. If no ridiculous candidate runs this time I'll be very dissapointed.

I wonder if Airmax is joking or not.

Of course I am. I don't really believe Freedo is going to attempt to assassinate me or overthrow my administration. He's always been a civil and thoughtful member for as long as I have known him, and I'm proud and excited that he has joined me in the campaign as my VP.

Airmax, you better eat your words right now. It is against Mercury Law to compare anyone to Freddie Mercury unless it is showing how inferior they are.

What does the vice president even do? Who is your vice president right now? I haven't seen him do anything unlike you, the current president.

Thank you, thank you.

My adoring fans rest assured, I still am and will always remain your Emperor, Dictator and Grand Poobah.

But there are ways in which I will simply not use my limitless dictatorial powers unless formally asked by my dearly beloved people to do so.

I have an enormous amount of commitment to this site that, dare I say, I believe is truly beyond any here. I wish to channel this will into a position in the administrational duties of this site to endlessly better the user experience and encourage it's intellectual integrity to flourish.

For those asking whether there will be free drugs for everyone, need ye only know that FREEDO is a drug and there is plenty of me to go around.

How does this presidential thing work? aside from the obvious of course.

The President is the elected representative of the DDO community. Before juggle it was mainly a joke, mainly a popularity contest. Since juggle has owned the site the position of President has become the member that the community thinks will best develop a relationship with juggle and be able to best represent all members of this site.

So far this has worked out greatly due to great members like Innomen and Airmax, DDO has been in a "golden age". Trolling has been at a minimum but still a fair amount of free speech has been maintained.

Hope that helps.

airmax (or someone in his council), can you please tell us what exactly you've brought to the office of President? I am admittedly quite out of the loop, so forgive me if this seems like a loaded question. I'm genuinely curious... What have you done?

Many of the updates have gone through the presidency and their interactions with Juggle. That is not to say that the presidents have done it all by themselves, but they do tend to function as a focus point to keep things from being forgotten so they can actually get done.

I can't give in insider details but it is obvious that DDO has entered into a golden age while under his Presidency. Trolls are at an all time low. Votebombing is at an all time low. And juggle involvement has been at an all time high.

Correlation does not equal causation. I don't see how he's responsible for any of those things. Have trolls been banned more swiftly or are they simply not coming? Have votebombers been banned and their actions reversed, or is it simply not happening? And Juggle's involvement... well, I don't see how he could have any power over that. Furthermore, lets say hypothetically someone else had won the last election; I don't see how the site would be in a drastically (if even remotely) different position to what it is now.

theres a difference between actual trolls intentionally trying to make the site look idiotic and a tournament where people make joke debates for the amusement of others.... Believe me, I would know
