This forum's goal is to see what everyone thinks needs to be changed on this website.

Ban those who repeatedly violate the Terms of Use. Particularly those who repeatedly violate these clearly ignored rules:

- No use of profanities or swear words
- No personal attacks against other members or a member's opinions
- No use of racial, sexual or religious slurs
- No threats or implications thereof
- (You) Will not use the Service to harass or "stalk" anyone

They are the rules, no matter what anyone thinks the rules should be. It's time to actually have them enforced.

Oh and also (especially) this ignored term:

"Will not upload, copy, distribute, share, or otherwise use Content that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, harmful, hateful, harassing, pornographic, threatening, racially or ethnically offensive, abusive, that would violate another person's rights, constitute or encourage a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or violate any local, state, national, or international law or regulation, or that is otherwise inappropriate."

Lannan is right, there is another thread for this.......but I think Eli is trying to make a point. But I have to admit, it is a lot better than it use to be for sure Eli. Before mods if you pissed the wrong person off you would be stalked and have all your personal info display. Then people would cyber bully you till you left.

I don't think a certain level of attacks and harassment will ever leave though. It's just part of being on the internet.

I would like to see a change to the presidency though. I'm glad ore_le is taking it so it is not lost but I've never been a huge fan of the "platforms" concept. It's to much like actual politics where you are forced to choose the least of two evils.

I've brought this up before but back then it was all about politics and the overall direction of the site. One side wanted anarchy and the other wanted diplomacy. I've always wanted to see a prez that would truly represent DDO as a whole instead of the majority. I guess this can happen but it will really depend on the community as much as a president willing to listen to the community and take their concerns and desires to juggle regardless of personal preference.

But as I said, it is as much the communities responsibility as it is the presidents. So far a prez says "I will do xyz" and the community either gets behind him/her or another candidate. I'd like to see a prez say I will do what yall want, but it has to be in your hands to figure it out, come together and plan it out.

Simple example

Two or three members come up with Y initiative. They post it in the forums or start a poll trying to gain support. Maybe a few debates or threads to work out details/compromise to gain further support. Get X amount of support with a limited amount of objection and boom.....you have something to take to juggle. Now what juggle decides to do with it is a horse of another color but at least it is a reform/enhancement that has support and is possible.

Biggest problem with this is the fact that this is a debate site and everyone has a strong opinion lol. But at least it gives some real function back to the presidency.

Just my thoughts anyway.

As you all can see, these are just 3 changes that only 2 people have discussed. There 368 members online right now. There 221,612 members in all on this website. Everyone has an opinion. Although I am no longer running as president, due to me being still a very new member, I and my future vice, in the future plan on making changes to the website. Not only will I make changes so that the entertainment of this website, but also for the peace of the website. If you do not want to take me seriously now, I understand. But in the future please give me and my vice a chance, and we wont let you down.

If you can bring something to the table that will help curb the division the presidency none seems to cause I would be all for that. I think as of right now Ore_ele being prez will at least preserve it for the future instead of doing away with it all together.

But yeah, you gotta earn your bones here Eli before you can attempt to go for the presidency. Just the way it is. Good luck to ya and I hope to see around in the future.
