Aloha, DDO, and Happy Halloween!

So, a few days ago in the last Presidential Update, Zaradi, Saph, and I announced that we were going to run for reelection in December. Having been in office for a term already, Zaradi and I have a good idea of what the office entails, what can be achieved, and how to achieve it. Saph can bring a fresh perspective to our team, and can represent the voices of less established users in our discussions. Together, we've built a platform that we think will work for DDO, and which we've posted below. We promise to run a civil, issues-based campaign that doesn't spam the forums, and throughout this process, we hope to earn your vote.

Below is a link to our platform. It's in a google doc, so that we no longer have to post in the forums to update our platform, and so that it is more easily accessed by readers. There should also be a three-way interview that will be posted shortly, which should reintroduce us to DDO.

Thanks, DDO, for a great term, and we looked forward to a substantive reelection campaign! And, have fun trick-or-treating and/or partying :)

Aloha,
Bsh1/Zaradi/Saph

Yup. About 42 days until the election, so it didn't seem to early to post this. But, I am pretty sure most of the campaigning won't happen until 30 days.

I've already got an angle on that due to someone's generosity. I can't guarantee cash prizes will always be awarded, but they should be available now and again.
