Let us rejoice! In three days time, the voting shall be done, and DDO can return to normal. I just wanted to thank Mikal for a good campaign, even though I strongly believe Blade is the better candidate. I think that this campaign illustrates the vigorousness of DDO's democratic processes, in that we can have a close campaign filled with substantive differences.

That being said, I just wanted to urge voters one last time to become informed about the election. I personally have endorsed Bladerunner060, Cermank, and Thett, for the posts of President, Vice-President, and Chief of Staff, respectively. I believe that they are well-qualified, that they have good ideas, and they have the know-how to see those ideas through.

Below are some links to threads generated in support of the Blade campaign by which you can get to know more about his candidacy. I would urge you to read them.

Here are some links to non-partisan forum threads as well:

http://www.debate.org... (though, I don't believe this has been update to reflect Blade's latest platform update)

Anyway, whoever you vote for, I urge you to get informed and to cast a conscientious and well-meant ballot. That's all anyone can really ask. Thank you, and happy voting :)

Either Airmax or Ore will create a forum thread. Your votes go there. You will need to bold your votes to count, like this:

Blade/Cermank

Can you explain to me why I can't vote? I've been on this site for 5 goddamn months with over 500 polls. I know the poll section doesn't matter, but I demand suffrage! Votes for women!

I literally just talked to Airmax about updating voting requirements to enfranchise users who spend more time in the polls. I plan to talk to him about it more after the election. Suffice it to say though, it is too close to the election to change the requirement now; any alterations will have to wait until the next cycle.

Currently, it takes 3 debates (without forfeits) or 500 forum posts to vote.

I like my Debate record to stay serious and intact. And I'm in two debates at moment, so that's not the issue. My post count is.

It doesn't harm it from doing a speed debate. There is not enough time to write out everything as one wants and do research, but if there's a topic one is familiar with, it does no harm.

I like having my topics be well thought out, well structured, well sourced, and deeply analyzed to provide for the best detail and lowest possible chance of loss.

Would anyone actually protest just letting Peter vote at this point? I mean anyone who has made more polls than debates I have been in has certainly proved his worth to the site in my opinion....
