This has been a monumental election. Bladerunner may not have been elected, but he has been promoted to a position that he deserved ages ago. As I have said throughout this entire thing, I have been perfectly content with whoever won, as I view Eddie not only as one of my great friends on this site but as a distinguished member in general. He has maintained his composure in spite of all this, put his heart into everything he has done, and if anyone is perfect for the position of moderator, it's him. Now he is not just working with the community, he is working as an authority on the site assisting Airmax, which is where he has belonged for quite some time. He deserves this more than anyone, and I am quite sure we can all agree that he will go above and beyond to continue to serve us in any way possible.

For myself, I want to thank everyone that supported me. I firmly believe that we can work together as a community to make DDO a better place in the months to come, this remains even more so true with Blades new position as well.

This has been the biggest and most controversial election in the history of DDO. I'm happy to be moving forward so that we can get to the real work, and focus on making DDO even better.

My inbox is always open, and I'm always willing to hear ideas, listen, or just talk about anything you want. For all practical purposes my role now is to serve you as a community. That is how I intend to approach this term. I want to work with each and every member that is willing to promote site's growth, community growth, and making DDO a better place all around.

With all that being said, I want to start my term by stating my intent to help Airmax with the new sticky thread and continue to develop the community outreach program. I think this is a great idea that can be utilized to help new members better be able to use DDO.

If this election has taught me anything, it's that there are some great people that have never really had the chance to experience DDO, or do not know that much about it because they have no idea how it works. I want us to have a way to reach out to every concerned member and encourage them, help them, and show them how to be a more active part of this community.

I want to to sum this up with a thank you. Thank you for electing me as your DDO Membership President, together we can make DDO an even better place.

Mikal, don't let me down ... And more so, don't let the rest of DDO down... I'm trusting you'll do rightly and be a great president... We all love you!

Congrats!

Congratulations. I look forward to working with you and wish you great success.

I know from just the several conversations we've had since the conclusion of the election, that you are passionate about doing what you can, and I'm confident that you'll work hard to achieve whatever you put your mind to.

I was asking because if airmax wasn't re-elected twice, Mikal would be the 9th president on the 11th election...

Congrats! You'll still be yourself right? It would be a shame if you started acting more mature, because you have a personality that DDO could really use.

I have to act more mature in some aspects, but I will still be my self in some of the forums posts. Airmax is starting to give me more and more faith with every conversation we have, so when he chooses to allow me to be involved with moderation issues, I will carry myself differently in that aspect

Between me, max, and eddie we balance each other out quite well. Throw bluesteel and the others in the mix, it's an equation for victory.
