Let me start off by saying to everyone: Happy 4th of July, even to the monarchists in other countries. You can have a happy day, too!

And let me finish by saying I am VERY ill, and have been for a few days. As such, while trying to type and be sick at the same time could lead to some wacky hijinks, I'm keeping this short and I apologize to you all. Nonetheless, take this space to yell at me if you like. I probably won't read it, at least not for a few days--the power cord DOES reach into the bathroom, but I'd rather not risk the liquid damage if I can avoid it.

In my defense, at least I'm sticking to the update schedule! Poorly, granted, this week. But I posted it. I'm optimistic that I'll be better within a day or two. Because sometimes you have to be optimistic, amiright?

Anyway, I'll close with a couple of notes:

Salt substitute is often made out of potassium chloride, rather than Sodium Chloride. Thus, if you want to keep the ingredients for Oral Rehydration Solution on hand, it might be beneficial to pick some up, and add it to a solution of water, salt, and sugar. It tastes nasty, but srsly, you need Potassium, and Gatorade's actually been shown not to help as much with Hyokalemia. (Or mush up a banana. But the smell of a banana didn't help my stomach even though I love bananas).

Zofran is available by Rx only. Benedryl is an anti-emetic, but for me it mostly works like Dramamine, that is, on motion sickness.

Dogs are awesome.

Anyway, I posted at least something so I kept to my promise. In a cheap way, perhaps, but I hope ya'll can cut me at least a skosh of slack. As always, please message me or bsh1 with any questions, comments, concerns or thoughts. I'd like to ask that any debates in dire need of votes be send to bsh1 instead of me for at least until Sunday--not to drop that on his lap, but...reading is not my strongest suit at the moment.

Thanks everybody!

I noticed that a few debates have gone unvoted, but I noticed things on this site have been improving greatly in terms of new members, intelligent people, and functional debates. I don't know why the shift, but I would like to keep it up. Votes have been more honest, and its driving individual and independent debaters to our site. Voting used to be an extension of community, but I see that's slowly starting to change.
How about NO elections?

I know I'm going to sound pesimestic here, but I do not think we have seen any relitive changes since you've been in office and every week you come out here saying that you're on track for DDO updates. What updates? Could you show some transparency of what you're doing under the hood?

I also have an add complaint. For some reason I've been seeing a lot of pornography adds on this site and I know that I'm probably not the only one seeing them. Could you block out that filth or at least have Juggle do something about it.

I haven't got any pornographic advertisements on this site in my experience but you can block them with AdBlocker. AdBlocker can block all kinds of advertisements ranging from being the 9,999,999th person to visit this site scam to hardcore porn ads in every site you visit.

Hi everyone,

First and foremost, I'd like to wish Bladerunner a speedy recovery. I just went through a food poisoning fiasco myself, and feel your pain bud. I wish you well!!

Secondly, it's somewhat unrealistic to expect any major chances to occur so soon. We have to keep in mind that it takes time for new presidents to open up a solid line of communication with Juggle. We also mustn't forget that Juggle is an extremely busy company and must allocate the resources necessary for such changes to occur. I think it would be wise to practice patience in this regard. I have full faith that Bladerunner/Bsh1 are competent leaders who will accomplish the tasks they have set forth as campaign promises.

Lastly, in terms of unvoted debates: The task is bigger than just one man. Bladerunner has signed Whiteflame on board to organize the voting group that is working under Bladerunners administration. Considering that he is currently sick, there are several options that are clear, one can PM Whiteflame or Bsh1 for the time being if they have an unvoted debate in need of a vote.

I am also totally willing to help out by voting on any unvoted debates. Feel free to PM me with links if you are ever in need. It is up to each of us to support the President in making this site a better place for everyone. If the presidents current efforts are geared towards unvoted debates, then let's all play our part in making sure no debate goes unvoted. Remember, this site is only as strong as its weakest link. If we all step up to the challenge, the change will occur. We must depend not solely on our leaders, but also on ourselves. By lending our leaders a hand, we are also acting as the agents of change.

That's all :)

I Hope everyone has a nice day and remember that there are several members here willing to vote on any unvoted debate you might have, all you need to do is PM one of us.

I'm not sure what, specifically, you're asking about.

In terms of site updates, I can say that any updates that might get implemented, I can't tell you about until they're released, because that's how Juggle works--they don't like to say they're doing anything until it's basically done. Being too chatty about those sorts of things makes them not want to work with me, because they don't want me making promises for them.

I also have an add complaint. For some reason I've been seeing a lot of pornography adds on this site and I know that I'm probably not the only one seeing them. Could you block out that filth or at least have Juggle do something about it.

Do me a favor, and right-click on any of these ads, and "copy link address". Then send me a PM of that address. I will forward that up the chain, because, to coin a phrase, that ain't cool.
