I know Juggle is bust with heavier updates, but this seems like a pretty quick no-brainer fix. 3 days fora voting period is pathetic, especially with the lack of votes recently

It is not the period that is pathetic but your inability to change from default that is truly so.
Live for the present, for it is a gift.

If debater's want a 3 day voting period, its their choice. The more options the better. I would use a 3 day voting period if I had asked some people to adjudicate the debate for me, and I didn't want any other voters to vote and mess up the valid votes that I and my opponent was going to get.

Well many new members probably don't even know that it can be changed, and at times even experienced people may forget to change it

I didnt say they should eliminate it, I said it shouldn't be the default

New users don't know how often people vote. Three days seems like enough time to gain votes. It happens that it's not the case -- especially when votebombing occurs. Thank you very much Ma'am.

I'd say it should be longer. I also think the default character limit should be lower (seriously, we've seen those debates that are a couple of lines fighting against an unending wall of text).

This is a very minor defect in the DDO structure, and one you can correct yourself by taking the time to change the length of the voting period. If you can't change the voting period length, then you have problems.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
