Our Platform:
1. Make an incentive system to post quality content in both the forums and debates. This would be done through a "like" system where users would get points for every liked post or argument. As you accrue points, you can choose to spend them on cosmetic items such as text colours and icons by your name.
2. Lift the ban on profanity and make it an optional filter.
3. Remove and combine unnecessary threads and stickies (I.E Art and Tech, DDO Tutorial and Orientation)
4. As others have said, officially recognize Mafia as an important part of the site and work with experienced Mafia players to find possible improvements to the current system.
5. Allow trial for anyone banned for over two weeks
6. Ability to filter the forums to only see threads from a certain time period
7. Work towards an official election voting system
8. Add leaderboards for post counts and likes.
9. Allow users to reset their W/L ratio to zero once every six months
10. Allow the embedding of photos in the forums.
11. Add W/L record under users' name tag in debates.
12. Lift the all-caps filter.
13. Allow some banned people to come back (if the ban was unnecessarily harsh)
14. The ability to filter out posts in certain threads (such as Mafia games) in the Dashboard.

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..."

Also, bluntness and transparency are needed.

You say you're serious and yet you chose Lannan as your VP.....

So I ask again: are you seriously running?

1. A "like" system? What are we, facebook?
2. Wouldn't a spending currency system be pointless? If I wanted something that required a high amount of "likes", couldn't I just like every post in a few threads and get it? It seems to defeat the point.
2. Lift the ban on profanity and make it an optional filter.

People get around it in a plethora of ways already. There's no need to spend time and energy removing something that people are fine with it in right now when we can spend that time on stuff we actually want.
3. Remove and combine unnecessary threads and stickies (I.E Art and Tech, DDO Tutorial and Orientation)

Fair, but you and just about everyone are advocating this. Why is this unique to your party?
4. As others have said, officially recognize Mafia as an important part of the site and work with experienced Mafia players to find possible improvements to the current system.

And how would you go about doing this?
5. Allow trial for anyone banned for over two weeks

Already in place. What are you trying to do here?
6. Ability to filter the forums to only see threads from a certain time period

Seems kind of a pointless add-on. There's no real use for this unless you're trying to find the oldest thread to necropost.

7. Work towards an official election voting system

We already have one.
8. Add leaderboards for post counts and likes.

What would the purpose of this even be? Seems pointless.
9. Allow users to reset their W/L ratio to zero once every six months

Why on earth would I want to reset my W/L ratio?
10. Allow the embedding of photos in the forums.

Any point to this?
11. Add W/L record under users' name tag in debates.

Very minor, but fair.
12. Lift the all-caps filter.

And saying nac is too much of a difficulty for you?
13. Allow some banned people to come back (if the ban was unnecessarily harsh)

Like who? Is there someone in mind that you're wanting to bring back?
14. The ability to filter out posts in certain threads (such as Mafia games) in the Dashboard.

Seems pointless (at least for me since I want to see that), but fair.

So you really feel that people are going to choose you and Lannan over airmax or social?

Can you name some members you think are going to support this?

I meant that you get points when people like your own posts.
2. Lift the ban on profanity and make it an optional filter.

People get around it in a plethora of ways already. There's no need to spend time and energy removing something that people are fine with it in right now when we can spend that time on stuff we actually want.
It's just counterintuitive to keep locking a door when the lock is broken.
3. Remove and combine unnecessary threads and stickies (I.E Art and Tech, DDO Tutorial and Orientation)

Fair, but you and just about everyone are advocating this. Why is this unique to your party?
It isn't. What if I didn't advocate this? Would you assume that I did?
4. As others have said, officially recognize Mafia as an important part of the site and work with experienced Mafia players to find possible improvements to the current system.

And how would you go about doing this?
Make a panel of frequent Mafia players to help improve the overall experience. The community would come up with ideas. The ideas would go through the panel and then Juggle.
5. Allow trial for anyone banned for over two weeks

Already in place. What are you trying to do here?
When was the last official trial?
6. Ability to filter the forums to only see threads from a certain time period

Seems kind of a pointless add-on. There's no real use for this unless you're trying to find the oldest thread to necropost.
It helps when you are trying to find old threads pertaining to the history of the site, or threads that you want to refer people to.

7. Work towards an official election voting system

We already have one.
I mean like a full-on automated ballot, not a thread.
8. Add leaderboards for post counts and likes.

What would the purpose of this even be? Seems pointless.
Well, it doesn't seem like it would be hard to implement...
9. Allow users to reset their W/L ratio to zero once every six months

Why on earth would I want to reset my W/L ratio?
If you want to start from scratch.
10. Allow the embedding of photos in the forums.

Any point to this?
So people wouldn't have to redirect people to other sites to show an emoticon or the like.
11. Add W/L record under users' name tag in debates.

Very minor, but fair.
12. Lift the all-caps filter.

And saying nac is too much of a difficulty for you?
Look, 1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5+1/5 = 1. Things add up.
13. Allow some banned people to come back (if the ban was unnecessarily harsh)

Like who? Is there someone in mind that you're wanting to bring back?
Futureproofing.
14. The ability to filter out posts in certain threads (such as Mafia games) in the Dashboard.

Seems pointless (at least for me since I want to see that), but fair.
That's why it's optional. Some people will like it, some wont.

People who look at the platform and not the people running it.
That being said, I like Air and Social. I really do. They would both be good presidents.
