Hello everyone! After weeks of heavy campaigning, loads of discussing, deciding, and deliberating, the election has ended in a very very close decision. I would like to thank Bsh1 and thett3 for providing worthy competition. You are both great guys, and I hope the results of this do not deter your willingness to help the site!

I would like to thank everyone who has supported me in this election. Your help and role in assisting the site, is very appreciated. Such passion in going forward and taking the reigns to help when it is not required, is the kind of hard work I can appreciate, and will ultimately be what makes the biggest difference here on Debate.org.

While I don't officially start until tomorrow, I would like to start getting some important feedback now as deemed necessary via my conversation with Juggle.

While I will be hard at work on other projects over the next few months, I have been asked what updates are the most important to the users. I have my own interpretation of some of the updates that users have been looking forward to/been asking for.
However, in order to best assist to the majority, what updates do you think are the most important to the site, that take prioritization over others?

If you could please list the changes you think are most important to get implemented first, to the least important, it would be helpful in prioritizing which projects should be worked on first.

EX:

1) Home page modifications
2) Team debates
3) Vote ratings

etc.

I will be monitoring and keeping track of the results, and when they start slowing down, I will begin adding them all up and making a formal presentation to Juggle. Thank you, your feedback is important and essential!

Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Congrats as well! :)

Please allow more formatting in the argument field so I don't always have to use a 3rd party program!

I doubt it. OpenOffice Writer is free and I'm not even asking for that much capability.

1) thumb ups for votes (they already have something similar in the opinions).

2) if a debater forfeits 2 rounds in a row, it becomes an auto win for the other person (this is an idea from Larz).

Eliminating the opinion section and reforming the poll section. Also, banning most of the trolls who have been overrunning the site lately.
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.

Grats.

1. Increase debate voting.
2. Reform forfeits.
3. Better debate sorting.
4. More site-organized competitive debating (like a ladder).
5. Merge Opinions/Polls; also increase moderation there.
6. Less redundant categories in Opinions/Polls.

Open office is not an embedded word processor. Most browsers support basic rich text editors. Additional features need to be scripted.

Oh sorry, I thought you meant Microsoft Word processing.

I think if there is a noob-destroying position to be made then it should be a job that is held by me.
