After all the personal attacks, ad homs, and just the general tone of this election, i'm ready for it to be over. I have made every case I possibly could for myself so this will be the last post from me. I firmly believe I am the best candidate for the job of president. For all the reasons listed throughout the threads. I want to change DDO in a positive way and I have the motivation and desire to do it along with realistic promises and a great team behind me. If you don't believe in what i'm telling you, listen to what the people of DDO have to say about me. I'm backed by a great deal of the community and for valid reasons. Join this great group of people below that has given me their support and help me make the change this website needs.

I urge you guys to vote for me. Not just because I love the community, but because I want to give back to it and make it a better place.

Best of luck to blade and his campaign. He is a great guy and one of my best friends on this site and that will remain that way regardless of the outcome, but as the people above me are aware. We need a change in this community and I am the person to make that happen. Fight with me in order to make that happen. As you can see I have put my all into this election so I could serve you guys, that will not change after the election. The ideas and innovation that I have brought to the site will never stop coming even after i'm elected, and I will give this everything that I have even if it takes countless hours of devotion to give back in the way that you gave to me. Believe in me once more, as you have believed in me in this past. Lets' change this site for the better.

Much love to all you guys and no matter what happens, thank you for the massive amount of love and support you have given me. Thank you to the people that have stuck up for me in the face of relentless personal attacks and believed in me. Thank you for being like another family to me. If I win this , I give you my word that I will put every last breath I have into making this site a better place for everyone. You guys mean the world to me, and there is no way to properly put that into words.

Sincerely,

-Mikal/Bench/Bluesteel

I just want to say that although the campaigns have become extremely negative at times (and I take full responsibility for my role in that), Mikal has at all times stayed calm and collected, even when others attacked him. And he is ultimately the one you are voting for. Despite acknowledging before the election started that he has a temper, Mikal has already -- through the course of this election -- started acting like a President. As GCL said in her endorsement, "Mikal has shown a great deal of change and growth within himself just since the start of this election alone."

So not only does Mikal have immense passion, he has also shown incredible growth and restraint. I think others have had their shot at improving the site; I think now Mikal deserves his.

In the spirit of DDO's purpose, presidents should debate each other IMO...

We tried, He had 12 hour shifts and I had college/work stuff so balancing a time when we were both on was really difficult. I did try to take as many open things as I could though, such as interviews, debates, questions. I did everything I could do to uphold the spirit. I really wish we could have had the debate too though :/ or least a live forum

I somehow didnt see this before, and as Mikal's VP I should probably say thanks as well.

Thank you to everyone for putting up with all of the election threads that have been going on in the last two weeks! I can safely say that this election has caused more drama than any single Weekly Stupid episode, but y'all managed to weed through all the crap and keep a steady head.

Thank you all :D

I not sure about that. There was that one where Capslox posted a million times into the thread protesting and then there were other threads from her protests.

It's been a very interesting election, everyone. A very interesting election indeed. Boundaries were crossed here that have never been crossed before. Records were broken. Turnout was at an all time high. DDO has spoken, and democracy had occurred.

I, for one, am glad it's over.

I'm glad it is over too. In my opinion, the election brought a lot of unnecessary drama to this site.

Wait, I thought the election lasted for three days.
