Hi, my name is Nate (Otherwise known as Arcanas). I'm announcing my platform for the upcoming election here. If mods think it is to early to post this please let me know and I'll gladly stop posting *any* election related material until it is the right time to do so.

Front page clean up:

Currently, I feel that the front page of Debate.org is of poor quality. The front page is filled with debates that discourage new users from joining this site (IE: Debates that are racist, debates that are sexist, and highly offensive debates that are made by trolls in order to enrage others in general). However, I contend that through finding better methods of determining the front page content and encouraging higher standards of debates, we can clean up the front page and encourage new productive members to join the site.

Determining front page content:

I'd love to hear ideas from other members about how they think the front page should be managed, but this what I currently believe will be the most effective way to ensure that the most "valuable" debates reach the front page.
(A) Choosing the debates with the most recent likes

Front page debates are currently determined by the amount of comments they have. While this can lead to some great debates that have a active comments section reaching the front page, it can also lead to shoddy troll debates with flame war comment sections taking over the front page. Sadly, I think that the latter is far more common. By choosing the debates that get the most likes, we ensure that the debates that are most approved by members get onto the front page. No longer would we risk debates with only two or three commenters raging at each other getting onto the front page.

(B) Mod approved debates

Debates should be "Moderator approved" before going onto the front page. We should encourage Juggle to implement this so we can essentially completely rid of foul debates plaguing the front page and ensure only the good ones make it.

(C) "Sticky" debates

This is not an idea that I'm extremely passionate about so I don't mind if it's unpopular, but I think it would be good to place great debates we've had on this website on the front page. Hall of Fame debates, debates from experienced members, and more. We could have a list of debates we would like to show off that are regularly cycled out and back in. The time period each debate would have will vary depending on how many debates meet the standard.

The above also applies for the polls and comments section. New polls and opinions reaching the front page can lead to them getting votes, but it has the large drawback of inappropriate polls and opinions that clearly aren't serious getting onto the front page. I think the drawbacks of the latter far outweigh the benefits of the former as it deters new potential members from joining when they see displeasing/ disgusting material on the front page.

Why Juggle would like to work with us on this:

Juggle's current interests are on generating profit. Sadly, the company fails to pay much attention to debate.org as it apparently doesn't generate enough profit to justify spending resources on it. This is why the primary focus I'll have during my term is to clean up the front page. By convincing Juggle that this is favorable to them (Worth their resources) Juggle will be influenced to implement these plans to the front page and it will be both beneficial to debate.org and attract new members. As new members begin to come (With new standards for what gets on the front page, this is inevitable) Juggle will probably be interested in continued work with members in order to collect more profit. When this happens, the cycle of better features and an increase of new productive members will begin to smoothly flow. Juggle receives a more populous site and more ad revenue, members get more quality debates and discussions, and mods waste less time cleaning up problems that are a result of idiots who get onto the front page and cleaning forums in general. Triple win!

Improving quality of debates:

We should make it easier for new members to adapt to the site, learn the ropes, and learn how to debate. Many members that join are poor at debating but have untapped potential. With potentially amazing members losing interest fast after their first debate, it is clear that we need to make it easier for them. I think that the best way to help them is to have more threads where members can go and seek debate advice from experienced members. I know that multiple experienced members have made debate guides, and I think these types of threads should be sticky threads, and perhaps even end up on the front page. By doing this we secure the interest of newcomers fast, and ensure that they will have a reason to log into debate.org. In addition, by teaching newbs the basics of debate, we greatly improve the quality of debate and minimize the shoddy "Post a one sentence argument then forfeit the rest of the rounds" debates.

Still trying to figure out who my vice president is going to be. PM me if you're interested. Will add more to my platform later. Thanks for spending your time reading my ideas, it's appreciated. Again, the above is my primary focus to improve the site, and there is more to add.

Vote Nate, he's great.

Wait. Is Juggle the real name of the company that owns DDO? I thought Wylted just made it up.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Come on, Max. There's no need to troll new members and with this "Juggle exists" stuff. They know as well as you and I that the DDO Elite runs this place.

Some advice would be to choose a famous person to be your vice so they can give you free votes also someone older then you cause your young and some people don't like having a teenage president.

The most elite group of debaters no one really knows who's part they are the owners of Juggle.
Also search your DDO history most unknown candidates who are formal usually don't win.

I have a running mate now! Meet ShaneTheTrain (Or just call him Shane). He's one of my friends IRL who has decided to join debate.org and assist me in the elections.

You sound like a promising candidate. But you and your partner literally just joined. How about you give it some time so you can join the DDO family, get to know people, and build friendships and learn how the site works first? You'd be more likely to win then. :)

Thank you for your advice. I think that I'll try running anyway though, as it is a way to get our idea's out there and is also a way for us to contribute to the community if we actually get in. I've already taken a ton of debates and have talked to multiple members so I'm not a complete newb.
