Since VK is too lazy to put up the primary right now, this will be sort of like the primary thread mixed with a poll. The votes don't go towards anything except for information purposes.

I cast my vote for Airmax/FREEDO

I dont know whose idiotic idea it was to not include the president in the presidential primaries but the point of primaries is to eliminate campaigns who dont have enough support so that we could focus on the main candidates. Eliminating the president from the primaries allows his supporters to get behind a potential retard in the primaries and knock out a more reasonable contender in the process too.

The actual primaries will start at 5:00 PM PST and end tomorow around the same time. So, no. I'm not lazy. I'm putting it up at 5. I never specified a time and it's a Saturday.

You realize that if the Prez was in this, it would just be the official election thread right?

On the flip side, if VK did include the incumbent, then that could knock out reasonable candidates who haven't advertised too much yet.

Thats assuming that they still cast a vote. As a supporter of Airmax I dont have any incentive at all to vote for the more reasonable candidate because then im just backing the biggest challenger to face the guy I really want to win, that being Airmax.

But if the majority of people vote for Airmax, why would we have another voting thread?

Every election now there are about 8 to 10 people declaring their campaigns for the presidency, and this has been the case ever since the position got really popular when Innomen was president. Now naturally some of the more respectable candidates wanted to have interviews and even debate other candidates to try to win votes, but with so many people running it was impossible to get anywhere.

So the primaries were adopted to eliminate the lesser campaigns so that the more respectable campaigns and their candidates could make a better case to go after the presidency rather then be held back by a bunch of noobs who thought they actually had a shot.

Thats the official use for the primaries. HOWEVER, the primaries are also used by candidates to see who supports their campaign, who their voter base is, who isnt in their voter base, and other things as well. Taking the president out of the primaries changes everything because A) The challenging candidates are given an over-inflated voting base they really dont have since Airmax clearly has a lot of support. and B) with Airmax not in the primary, his overwhelming number of supporters could theoretically organize and get behind a complete idiot to advance through the primaries and knock out a more legitimate candidate/threat.

I think Airmax should be in the primary given that after all, the primary is simply a glorified public poll. Hopefully the people who only get like one or two votes will drop out but there's nothing Viper or any of us can do to stop them. So since it's only useful as a poll, wee might as well try to gauge popular opinion while we do this amirite?

Because there's still over a month after this until the actual election. Why are you assuming everything will just be static?

Those who dont get enough votes are kept out of future polls, interviews, and then arent listed in the final election thread.

People who tend to participate in lots of bickering in the forums, create disputes, and do other nonsensical things should not be presidents. Innomen and Airmax have both abstained from idiotic exchanges, tried to dispute problems between people, have had very good conduct and tone all the time, and so forth. Perfect candidates.

I'd hardly give a vote (unless a good change happens) to people like AhmedM. They would change the site to suit their bias in any way they can.

That doesn't mean people can't vote for them, they can't self-promote, etc. This isn't like an actual Presidential election. Interviewing with Viper or simply having him list you in the OP of the election thread isn't something that's necessarily going to sway anything. Though if someone gets only a single vote in the primary I wouldn't expect them to turn around come Election Day.
