Essentially, I am running for the upcoming election.

You are free to take this as a troll run but next election it will certainly not be.

I intend to change 2 fundamental things about the site in the 6, or so, months that I am in power.

The first is the alienation between the Polls+Opinions section and the Debating and Forums sections.

The second is the frequency of specialized tournaments (I will explain why I have an aversion to all-topic tournaments).

The issue is that there are actually people on this website, regulars elder to even some of the members we consider to be acceptable, established members, such as Ajab and AngelofDeath and they have never read one letter of forums their entire time on this website.

This will be altered by a strict team of individuals assigned to PM polls and opinions members to attempt to use the forums. There will be religious forum recruiters (who Pm the religious poll and opinion section frequenters to come along to the forums form times to time), political ones, health ones so on and so forth. If it is a less active forum section, one team member may even be in charge of three recruiting sectors.

This team will be ultimately monitored and managed by Airmax and perhaps give blade (and definitely whiteflame for the religion forum) a great chance to zoom up the food chain in the world of administration of this website.

The people who choose to stay away from the forums, will also be encouraged to start official, long debates and perhaps we could even start an actual training cohort that actually do what the adopt-a-noob program intended to do but rather than one teacher to one noob, it is many teachers for many debaters, each specialised in one subject and/or style. I will fully be open about the selection process, etc et era, if I do get elected. It will be worked on by my vice president (whom is yet to be decided but will most likely be someone elder to myself who is much more into the people-dealing stuff while I actually work hard on the getting-things-done as I am an introvert by nature).

I highly suggest that we begin a series of specialized tournaments (which will be run by the designated training cohort of that subject and/or style). I will be ensuring that once per month there is a new tournament to join for any member in all subjects by the second month of my presidency. bsh1, ajab, bluesteel and wylted come to mind as four extremely different but brilliant debaters in their own style and specialized area of interest. There will be a very democratic process of suggesting who should lead which subject and perhaps be a style (such as LD) specialist and even be opportunity for vice-trainers etc et era.

I honestly will frequent this site very much, my promise lies in your blind faith, yes, but once I have a vice president who is totally behind my cause, I would absolutely love to enact this. If it so happens that I have to be the vice president to another in order for a more familiar face to be on this ticket then I'm more than happy to do so but only if it happens exactly as I have said here, and no alteration to my genuine intention occurs as a result of the power shift.

If you want to be on the recruiting team on the forums, the training cohort or both, PM me now and I will construct a comprehensive list and hold elections (or perhaps airmax or bladerunner can) and each will be chosen as soon as possible.

Any and all criticisms are welcome, feel free to add me as a friend as I only accept friend's PMs as this is a matter of spam-avoidance and avoiding hate-mail since presidents are bound to receive some. :)

All PMs will be 100% confidential unless you wish me to accredit he idea or suggestion to the one who gave it. :)

thank you very much for reading, I truly appreciate your time and patience and hope to repay you with my own.

Wylted has agreed to become a 'controversial debate' trainer and will be very wiling to host tournaments on the go! :D

LoL for president!

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.
