In collaboration with the other candidates, I have organised a "town hall" style debate between the top contenders for the DDO presidency. This is your chance to pose all your tough questions and issues that you'd like to see us address directly to us. The event will be livestreamed via YouTube, and afterwards a recording will be made available for all of you to watch. Because I'm committed to ensuring all of our ideas are put out there fairly, I'll also put up a written transcript of the whole event afterwards.

In attendance will be myself, bladerunner060, and kbub (kbub might have a conflict but will do their best to attend - I've set this event at the time kbub says they are most able to make it). If there are other candidates, get them to message me!

Please also start thinking about what kind of questions and issues you want us to discuss. Keep it short and relevant. Questions that all three of us can answer would be preferred, but a few questions directed at specific candidates should be OK.

The actual event will be held next Tuesday evening US time. Here's a countdown to when we'll be kicking off:
http://www.timeanddate.com... (remember to check the forums for announcements between now and then)

Over the next few weeks you will also see debates and other events related to the election, so stay tuned for those!

If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me a message or ask in this thread. Good luck to all the other running candidates!

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

Well it's noon for New Zealand / Australia, early evening for America, and late evening for Europe. I find that this time works best for most members.

You should still watch the recording afterwards and vote even if you can't make it. This election counts! :)

It'll be 5 o'clock my time--which is Arizona time, for the record. So depending on what your time zone is, is when it'll be, it should be after school for pretty much anybody in the US.

I should be able to tune in and watch live... I'm not leaning towards any candidate at the moment so hopefully this will help a bit.

Via hangouts and youtube livestream. People with questions will be directed to the hangout, and people who just want to watch to the livestream.

This is all seems needlessly dramatic and complex. Why can't we just buy an island somewhere and send the candidates out for a Lord Of The Flies style contest?

Also, where is it and how does all this work? Who even am I?

Don't grow old, kids.
