Hello, people I unwillingly memorize and fill up my brain with junk. :)

Let's talk about our next presidential elections. Certainly nobody is as capable as me for the role, which is why I consider it likely that I run. I would surely do my best to ensure little to no drama arises, except for the part where I calmly pulverize my potential opponents. Other than that, I'd like to keep it clean and peaceful.

Do you see the role of a president as beneficial and necessary? What improvements would you like to see? Lastly, in a scale of 1-10, how much would you want me to be president?

Thank you. Thank you very much. :)

Of course I would have to see your platform before I can begin certain calculations on the election and such.

You're right; ultimately, the "official" role would help me connect deeper with our base, so we can all feel more equal and prosper together.

Interesting. I think things like the front page are sort of unrealistic, as it is all up to the uncooperative and uninterested Juggle; but, most of that seems good.

Define "Elo discrimination." If you refer to Elo restrictions, people have the right to decide the level of debater they want to judge their debate. While Elo doesn't really represent an accurate figure of the level of debating skill, we nonetheless apply the 80/20 rule -- 80% of debaters with Elo less than, say, 3000 don't vote well, 20% do. There are definitely exceptions, but for good voting, Elo restrictions should exist.

I realize that. I never said that I wanted to abolish these options.

Certainly it is not out of reality that I create such a position for myself should I not get the community-constructed one. This is just my attempt to show that I do want to help serve others even by degrading myself a little bit in the process. :)
