Alright, so I wasn't going to add a ton of different fields yet; just keepin' it simple until it got situated. But it seems to be in high demand. So here's the new outline.

History
This will employ courses which will teach members the full and detailed history of our community. A diploma in this field is meant to demonstrate that a member has become well-studied in the time-line of DDO history, to a degree to which the member would be effective at accurately answering most questions posed to them about the subject.

Fundamentals
This will employ courses directed towards new members to help them become familiar with the site. A diploma in this field is meant to demonstrate that a member has properly been shown the ropes of our community in a way more thorough than traditional greeting and information for new members.

Mafia Strategy
This will employ courses which go into sufficient detail about the mechanics and tricks of playing Mafia. A diploma in this field demonstrates that a member has learned enough about these mechanics that they should be an expert in the game.

Debating
This will employ courses that give an in-depth examination of how to debate most effectively and, specifically, how to do so on this site. A diploma in this field demonstrates a member has been taught adequate skills to become one of the top debaters on this site.

Izbology
This will employ courses delving into the methods and general information behind famous trolls on DDO. It does not teach how to troll. It may incorporate how to properly handle a troll. A diploma in this field demonstrates that a member is well versed in this equivalent of Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Imperial Honor
This will employ courses encouraging preferable conduct, civility, reasoning and patriotism towards the empire. A diploma in this field demonstrates that a member has the proper training to be an exceptional example for conduct on DDO.

Further Info

One teacher will be selected for each field. That teacher is allowed to pick one assistant. They will design their own course program, with supervision from myself.

We will currently keep class sizes for each field down to 5 people.

It will take a minimum of 2 months and a maximum of 6 months to obtain any degree. Teachers are required to present some course plan to their students at least once a week.

Students can pick 1 major and 1 minor.

Any other questions, just ask.

I'll apply to teach debate. However, my subjects will be limited to politics, economics, science, history, and some religious topics.

No morality, sports, technology, art, entertainment, and especially no troll debates.

I will apply to be a student for two degrees. History and Debating. History because the class sounds like it will be super fun, and Debating because I am a crappy debator.

You can apply for both. It's just stupid.

As a frequent foil of Izbo10 during his time here, I want to be in Izbology as both a student and a teacher.

Meh. We'll see how long it lasts. I feel like I'm in a post-apocalyptic wasteland as I navigate these forums. Did I miss mass extinction or something? I think the only thing I'm sure of is that Freedo is obviously de facto king of this desolate warzone.

Mafia is in a bit of a slump, but I really can't speak about the site as a whole. Certainly some long-standing members are gone, but we have noobs to replace them.

I would like to know in the history of DDO What happened as of the points in bold.

A large part of it is that a year or so ago the site was thrown into chaos when a member named askbob got power hungry and reported every little thing. He was eventually banned from the site but he had a bunch of friends who go butthurt ad left. Also, part of it could be the master troll izbo10 scaring some people off as well.
