Hello,
as you may have heard the DDO election is coming up in June and I'm deciding whether to run so I wanted to get some feedback.

Do you want me to run for DDO President?
http://poll.pollcode.com...

If I won, would you have interest in being involved in the DDO bureaucracy?
http://poll.pollcode.com...

Thanks.

Is airmax running? I'd probably vote for him if he is...

It would be hard to sway me from a max vote as well.

I suppose if anyone could do it, it's Oryus.

If Oryus is willing to run (which I imagine she will decide based on how much support she believes she has based on this poll) then I will run as her VP. I will remain as a co-mod and assist her in whatever way she requires.

In the first poll, I said Sure instead of Yes, Definitely because you are such a great person with so much potential, I'd hate to see you spend more time on DDO sorting through reports from sadolite =\

Questions:

1) Will this be an extension of Airmax's dictatorship?

2) If elected, do you plan on making the highest office on the site a hereditary monarchy?

3) What recourse do we have to prevent the Max-Oryus clan from assuming unlimited power?

Present a qualified individual who wants to run for president, get a majority of DDO members to vote for them.

Then it's settled.

I, RyuuKyuzo, will run for president.

The nominations will be decided via rap-battle.

I would vote for you if you ran, and I would have almost no interest in being regularly involved in the DDO bureaucracy unless my being so was publicly determined to be indispensable to the site.

YAY I LOVE GIVING INTERVIEWS :D

(These are kinda serious questions)

1) Would you ever consider letting the Weekly Stupid be featured in the main DDO forum or would you keep it quarantined to the Misc thread?

2) I naturally clash with a lot of people on DDO and I do admittedly cause some hell once in a while, and by once n a while I mean once every three days. If elected president, what are my odds of me being banned on a scale of 1-10, 10 being 'Youll be banned the second I take office'

3) How do you intend to increase the rate of voting on debates? (That seems to be the biggest issue right now)

4) If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

5) How would you have handled WallStreetAtheists hacking of that debate after being warned numerous times? Would you also have banned him for 3 days, longer/shorter, or not at all?

6) Scenario: Lets say a random user reports me for pointing out the flaws in his arguments and he gets really butthurt about it. We'll call this user 'Shmadolite'. How would you handle his complaints?

(These are kinda serious questions)


Since I'm now running, I'll go ahead and answer all these questions.

1) Would you ever consider letting the Weekly Stupid be featured in the main DDO forum or would you keep it quarantined to the Misc thread?

Are you kidding? I'll see to it that TWS it posted in EVERY thread.

2) I naturally clash with a lot of people on DDO and I do admittedly cause some hell once in a while, and by once n a while I mean once every three days. If elected president, what are my odds of me being banned on a scale of 1-10, 10 being 'Youll be banned the second I take office'

0.00

I would sooner ban myself.

3) How do you intend to increase the rate of voting on debates? (That seems to be the biggest issue right now)

I will vote on every debate.

4) If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

The kind that would eventually be turned into a bench.

5) How would you have handled WallStreetAtheists hacking of that debate after being warned numerous times? Would you also have banned him for 3 days, longer/shorter, or not at all?

I'd hire him to find every coding flaw in the site so they can be patched.

6) Scenario: Lets say a random user reports me for pointing out the flaws in his arguments and he gets really butthurt about it. We'll call this user 'Shmadolite'. How would you handle his complaints?

HE'LL BE BANNED TO THE NINTH CIRCLE OF DDO HELL FOR SUCH BUTTHURTEDNESS.

I'd be willing to take a vote on it.
2) I naturally clash with a lot of people on DDO and I do admittedly cause some hell once in a while, and by once n a while I mean once every three days. If elected president, what are my odds of me being banned on a scale of 1-10, 10 being 'Youll be banned the second I take office'

If you commit a bannable offense (which is difficult to do), you'll be banned. If you don't, you won't. Nobody gets banned in ignorance of rules. May the odds be ever in your favor, as they are up to you.
3) How do you intend to increase the rate of voting on debates? (That seems to be the biggest issue right now)

A lot of people have a lot of ideas they are toying with and debating in PMs and in the forums (maybe even debates?) and nobody seems to be able to come up with an idea that doesn't have a major flaw. I'll continue to help facilitate the discussion, but I'm merely Oryus, not Jesus. I don't have all the answers.
4) If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?

Japanese maple
5) How would you have handled WallStreetAtheists hacking of that debate after being warned numerous times? Would you also have banned him for 3 days, longer/shorter, or not at all?

You are basically asking me whether I would have disregarded Juggle's wishes and gone rogue moderator on them. Clearly, the answer is I would have done exactly what airmax did as anyone else would have unless they wanted to have their moderator status taken away for blatantly disregarding the wishes of the company which owns this website.
6) Scenario: Lets say a random user reports me for pointing out the flaws in his arguments and he gets really butthurt about it. We'll call this user 'Shmadolite'. How would you handle his complaints?
I would firstly not join in on the questionable behavior by answering a question in the forums about said user which is meant to be inflammatory.

Also, the following is a list of debates I plan on making. Which of these would you let me make/get away with?

1) If abortion is murder, then male masturbation is aggravated assault
2) Penis day should be a national holiday
3) The quality of blowjobs give by women have declined drastically over the past 15 years
4) The world would be a better place if men bled out of their penis once a month
5) North Korea and South Korea should just have sex and get it over with already
6) The amount of sperm a gay guy can hold is directly proportional to the size of his anus
7) If abortion is murder, then blowjobs are cannibalism

Gross.

And I'm, personally, indifferent to all of them existing.
If some issue would arise however, like a report or something, I would most likely be asking other people for their opinions too so it wouldn't just be my decision flat-out.
