I am contemplating running for DDO President, as many other candidates on this Site have. Of course, I am just one voice out of a shouting crowd of people running for this office. Any intelligent voter would (or should) ask two questions when evaluating a politician running for office:
A. What has this person contributed so far?
B. What could he/she contribute in the office that he/she is running for?

A. An (Incomplete) Resume of DDO User Bubbatheclown:

-I am arguably the most prolific forum thread creator currently active (though this claim is disputable and could be proven false)

-I am creator of the DDO Userbook, an ongoing project of mine to index most currently active DDO Users (those who are not one-time noobs, that is)

-I am a relatively well-known member (that is, most prolific members have at least encountered or seen me on a forum or debate or poll)

-I have my own DDO Party, the DDO Members Union; we are currently low on members compared to Jifpop's party(s)

-I have (at the time that I'm writing this) been around for 5 months, which is longer than popular user Jifpop has been around.
Source:
http://www.debate.org...

-(The following may or may not be positive to my resume) Imabench's comment towards me in a forum thread is what got him kicked off this Site; I am the Benchslayer.

Now:

B. Campaign Promises (If I were to run)

-According to the User Type Classification (also invented by me) I am a Type Two User.
Here is an overview of the User Type Classification:
http://www.debate.org...
Therefore, if elected I would encourage more games (such as Mafia and Fate) and shows on this Site.

-If elected I would attempt to bring about team debates and some other features which Edeb8 has but we currently don't; I do not know how well I'd be able to keep this promise

-In the interests of Type One Users, I would create (or attempt to create) two separate types of polls: one for important debating issues and one for all the miscellaneous stuff.

So, should I run?

It'd probably be a waste of time for you too, though it seems you'd have a better chance. Did you read it all, by the way?

Between you and jif, my vote goes to you. But I'll vote for TUF if he's running, Daytona if not.

(:D)
I think TUF probably is going to run, but we will see. If he's not, things will get to be very interesting.

Also, you should remember that there are going to be many more presidency announcements coming up, and some of them will be by prominent users.

Thank you. Of course, I haven't officially started running yet. I might not.

Also, I am inventor of the Union Language, which was more of a form of code-talk. Normally this information has only been available to Union members, but today I've decided to make information on the Union Language public.

An Explanation of the Union Language:
In the Union Language, each letter in a word shall correspond to a Roman numeral.
Example: A=1=I, B=2=II, Z=26=XXVI
Simple, right? Not so fast. You do the exact opposite. A, being the first letter in the
Alphabet, shall be represented by the Roman Numeral for 26, which is the number of Z, the last number in the Alphabet. So:
A=XXVI, B=XXV, C=XXIV, D=XXIII, E=XXII, F=XXI, G=XX, H=XIX, I=XVIII, J=XVII, K=XVI, L=XV,
M=XIV, N=XIII, O=XII, P=XI, Q=X, R=IX, S=VIII, T=VII, U=VI, V=V, W=IV, X=III, Y=II, and Z=I.
You get what I'm talking about, right?

To prevent these numbers from clustering together, a dash (-) is put in between each letter.
Example: The word Cat: XXIV-XXVI-VII
A space is put in between words to separate them. Either a period, an exclamation mark, or a question mark are put to end each sentence. Commas may be put wherever they are needed. Parenthesis are placed at the beginning and at the end of a sentence.
Example: The cat bounced on the ball:
(VII-XIX-XXII XXIV-XXVI-VII XXV-XII-VI-XIII-XXIV-XXII-XXIII XII-XIII VII-XIX-XXII XXV-XXVI-XV-XV.)
Please do not make sentences more than six or seven words long, and separate your sentences on different lines.

There you have it.

I am going to speak to you as a friend here, and give some constructive criticism on your resume.


-I am arguably the most prolific forum thread creator currently active (though this claim is disputable and could be proven false)

You probably are, but many people aren't very big fans of your threads...


-I am creator of the DDO Userbook, an ongoing project of mine to index most currently active DDO Users (those who are not one-time noobs, that is)

Not many people know or care about that project right now.


-I am a relatively well-known member (that is, most prolific members have at least encountered or seen me on a forum or debate or poll)

The question is, how positive have those encounters been?


-I have my own DDO Party, the DDO Members Union; we are currently low on members compared to Jifpop's party(s)

The few people who do know about it see it as nothing more than a joke...


-I have (at the time that I'm writing this) been around for 5 months, which is longer than popular user Jifpop has been around.

To put it bluntly, there are several users who have been around for less time than you, yet are more well-liked.


-(The following may or may not be positive to my resume) Imabench's comment towards me in a forum thread is what got him kicked off this Site; I am the Benchslayer.

Yeah, that's not a positive thing for most people...

Dem's alright. I'm voting for him as its quite obvious I wont win :(. And no, you were not speaking to Bubba as a friend. You were outright insulting him under the guise that you were.

I can agree that it wasn't too constructive, considering he can't do much about his damaged reputation...

Reading back over it, I can see why you BS meter was beeping, though.

I go around seeking attention all the time, mostly by making extraneous and unwanted forum threads. I've only been here for a few months, so nobody really has had a chance to get to know me.

Ah, ok then. As long as you are upfront about it.

I am going to speak to you as a friend here, and give some constructive criticism on your resume.


-I am arguably the most prolific forum thread creator currently active (though this claim is disputable and could be proven false)

You probably are, but many people aren't very big fans of your threads...


-I am creator of the DDO Userbook, an ongoing project of mine to index most currently active DDO Users (those who are not one-time noobs, that is)

Not many people know or care about that project right now.


-I am a relatively well-known member (that is, most prolific members have at least encountered or seen me on a forum or debate or poll)

The question is, how positive have those encounters been?


-I have my own DDO Party, the DDO Members Union; we are currently low on members compared to Jifpop's party(s)

The few people who do know about it see it as nothing more than a joke...


-I have (at the time that I'm writing this) been around for 5 months, which is longer than popular user Jifpop has been around.

To put it bluntly, there are several users who have been around for less time than you, yet are more well-liked.


-(The following may or may not be positive to my resume) Imabench's comment towards me in a forum thread is what got him kicked off this Site; I am the Benchslayer.

Yeah, that's not a positive thing for most people...

I'm back (ish).

RIP the presidential office. It's returning to a popularity contest.

Hasn't that always been the case to some degree?

I don't mean this as a specific criticism to those who have announced, but we always have a bunch of less than serious candidates announce at some point (and it's always way too early)... by the end, it really does seem to get narrowed down to a couple of the more serious contenders.

You took the office seriously. From what I've seen, TUF took the office seriously. I can't say I've seen a single person who's annoucned they want to run who I think will take it seriously.

You're missing very important issues to DDO here and this platform isn't much of a threat. Since you are still a relitively new member I would suggest, if you run, that you would chose an older member on this site that has been around for a while to show that you have some expirance under the hood and would know the ins and outs of this site.
