Members of DDO have to come together and vote on a DDO constitution that will address this issue as well as other reasonable issues. A DDO president must have a limited number of terms in power, in an event where he/she is voted for numerous times. A DDO senate must also be elected to assist the President as well as strip him of the Presidency if he does not carry out duties to the required standard. My reason for this is that there are a number of DDO members who want to attain the presidency but they are not achieving the presidential ambitions they harbour because the majority of members on DDO have their eyes glued on the current president and his achievements to realise that someone else might be capable of doing a better job.

This idea has been tried. We already have a two term "curtisy" limit on the office, but if you're worried about Mikal this is his only term as he's already announced that he's not running for re-election. The DDO Consitution has already been tried and besides we have the TOS which is basicly the same thing and even if we did there is no way that the average DDOer would have a say in it as it would probably go to Bluesteel, Airmax, Mikal, bladerunner, and a few other members for creation and then it would be presented to the rest of us. So I highly doubt that anything really matters at this point.

1) We've tried this, it doesn't work.
2) This would make things entirely more complicated.
3) This would only cause more drama.
4) Who the hell are you?

I'm guessing it's either MassiveDump or Jifpop.

That seemed like an unnecessary reaction...

Unnecessary complication , there are other things we need to focus on.
