hi, i'd say i was new to the site, but i'm not. i just haven't been on in a long long time.

i just wanted to know what has gone on in the last couple months in terms of DDO history or whatever... the last thing i can remember is... oh, the fiasco with josh. he's not still around is he? of course, looking around on the forums, i barely see anyone i recognize....

who's still here of the original debate.org, when debate.org wasn't debate.org, but debate.com?

Lots of mafia games, many of the older, "popular" members are still with us, L has taken over the leaderboard.

Big members like Logical_Master, Yraelz, and Kleptin really haven't been on for the last several months. I know Kleptin has posted within the last week, but he isn't as active as he used to be.

L, Vi, JBlake, Volkov, Nags, and the like have consistently posted on here.

L has climbed the leaderboard and may be considered one of the most valuable members here.

Newer members such as Korashk, tvellalott, xxdarkxx, and many others have participated recently. FREEDO has become an attention *****, but he's drastically changed in his political viewpoints and contributes to the Misc. forum.

GodSands has returned, and DATC really hasn't.

If you bring up specific topics, I can tell you about them.

I know I'm missing a lot of members like Freeman, alex, and many others, but I just gave a general overview.

We haven't had too much drama, and there haven't been too many decent debates. An interesting video rap battle tournament terminated a while ago.

So, theLwerd being banned, votes being revealed on debates and the subsquent accusations between the geese brothers and theLwerd/Vi and askbob being banned once and for all (and his actions that led to it) was not drama?

L references theLwerd, correct.

Josh hasn't been on. Phil threatened to sue him if he kept trolling on DDO. Apparently Josh went a little too far with certain members on here (INH, or InsertNameHere, is one of them).

A lot of members here miss Josh and want him back, but I feel similar to your sentiments.

It was, but I thought burningpuppies may have already known about that.

For some reason, I seem to remember that burningpuppies made a similar thread to this one right after those happened, and that he was consequently informed about all of that.

Otherwise, if he wasn't, I apologize for leaving that out.

Besides, that stuff wasn't really "dramam." It was mere online bickering between several parties over matters that don't really "matter." Nonetheless, we all seem to be getting along better.

maybe he did; idk

I would think that would qualify drama for this site; the only "real" drama that would matter is if Phil sold the site

L was banned, but got her account back. Some members feel (like mongeese) that L votebombed both on her original account and temporary account. Nevertheless, she has her original account.

i wasnt here for panda being banned either.. what did *he* do.....

Panda still has his account; I think he caught got for multiple accounts.

and ya, i made another thread a while ago, but then i left ddo for a long time, just hoping for a news refresher.. lol

he got a bunch of pictures from INH facebook profile I believe; he was just making accounts until they got banned and just decided to stop

I think the banning happened because of a reported insult in pm messages and it intensified to voteboming arguments once votes were revealed

Panda created a purposely hideous Ms Datcmoto account

Askbob didn't just decide to leave, he kept using proxies to make new accounts every day and Phil threatened to sue him if he didn't stop.

Still the same.

Good to see you back around, if for a short time. Most of the old members from our day have gone. I think the only ones left are me, theLwerd, Vi, Puck, Brian_Eggleston, Ragnar, and PoeJoe. Was Roy Latham around that far back?

A lot of the old regulars rarely come around anymore. Those are Britt Waller, L-M, Yraelz, Kleptin, theSkeptic, Harlan, Rezz, askbob (permabanned), Beem0r, Labrat, Cirro, Biowsa, Lightkeeper, Tatarize, InquireTruth, Johnicle, Mangani, KRFournier... I'm sure I am missing a few others. Anyone in particular that you are looking for?

It's kind of depressing to see how few of us are left from the beginning.

The good news is, no sign of Josh for many many months.
