Recently I've seen some of the long-term members of this site complain about many things, most of them Juggle related. One of those things that I would like to address is the quality of the community.

I believe a few reforms by Juggle could help with the community quality on this site, but according to all the complaining going on, it looks as if Juggle won't be making any changes to DDO anytime soon. Therefore I propose we begin making changes within our online community ourselves. We can try to make as much of an impact as possible with the control that we do have.

I suggest the founding of a group called something along the lines of, "Outstanding Members Club" The purpose of this club would be to attempt to improve the conduct of members on DDO. This could be achieved any number of ways, but I have a few suggestions for a club format.

We could have a few members who are nearly unanimously considered to be the perfect DDO members and have them head the group. These people would be in charge of deciding who would be in the group and who wouldn't be.

One is allowed in the group if they do certain things. For instance, a member can ask to be a part of the group. One of the leaders observes their actions. If this person is meeting a certain set of criteria, like voting on debates in a thorough and unbiased manner, providing thought provoking ideas through their debates, polls, opinion questions, forum posts, and comments, essentially acting the way we wish all of DDO did, then the head members would allow them in. In order to remain in the club you would have to do these things continually, under some sort of time constraint, say, vote on a debate at least once a week.

This club wouldn't be based on win ratios or be any kind of elite members society, it'd just be about the members behaving in the way they want DDO to behave as a whole. My hope is that a group like this would be something that many members would strive to be a part of, and thus clean up their conduct a bit.

I know this is just a concept idea, that there's no solid plan listed. I'm just looking for feedback. Perhaps if there is popular support one of the more legendary members of this site could take this on. I feel someone like Mikal or RoyLatham would have considerably more pull than I would in regards to getting something like this going.

What do you think? Is it at least worth a shot?
Guess what I used to type this..

Careful! Don't laugh too hard.

No need for it, since the DDO elite already exists...........

I hear they don't like people talking about them. But since they don't exist you shouldn't have anything to worry about.

Why was "orgy" the first word that came to mind?
