Hey everyone,

The name is ChristianM, formerly usafkid1121. I was once very active on this site and for a while DDO is what got my through High School. That was 4 years ago, since then I have joined the military, gotten a degree and now I work for one of the Big 3 Tech companies. I couldn't be happer. (Though my relationship status could use a change.)

Obviously a lot has happened in the span of 3 years, so anyone that can provide a hot and dirty of what all has gone on since I've left. I see the site looks dramatically different. I like it.

Pleasure to be back, and I certainly hope Mafia is still running :)

Hmmm.... Let's see how do I explain this.

DDO President's
Innoman
Airmax
TUF
Bladerunner
Mikal
Ore_Ele
Bsh1 (current)

You missed Imabench's Weekly Stupid.

You missed tons of Mafia games, still going.

You missed a mass exodious from the site after Airmax's (current mod) strong anti-troll policy change.

Most of the older users left.

Polls and Opinions were introduced.

A few HOF votes.

We now have stricter Vote moding so there's no Counter-Vote bombings.

Larz left the site to create another debate site called edeb8.com. Though it's failing compared to this one.

Mariku and Tulle got married.

ELO was introduced.

Well he's been gone for 3 years. I'm refering to what "we" refer to as "older" users.

I was here for Inno and Airmax.

You missed Imabench's Weekly Stupid.

Sounds....enticing?

You missed tons of Mafia games, still going.

Also heard it was in limbo. Pity.

You missed a mass exodious from the site after Airmax's (current mod) strong anti-troll policy change.

Well, yeah I mean, I don't see why that is a bad thing.

Most of the older users left.

Aw, I was hoping to see some familiar faces around here again.

Polls and Opinions were introduced.

I saw those when I logged in, seems interesting. I'll check them out later.

A few HOF votes.

A hall of fame? I vote for Koopin.

We now have stricter Vote moding so there's no Counter-Vote bombings.

But the question remains, is there still vote-bombing?

Larz left the site to create another debate site called edeb8.com. Though it's failing compared to this one.

As is typical.

Mariku and Tulle got married.

Congrats to them! Did they meet here too?

ELO was introduced.

This seems like the biggest improvement so far.

Well they've kinda updated it to where you see it now and said fvck it. They really haven't done much in a while. Airmax is the over all mod. Whiteflame is the Voting Mod and Peteresmith is the Polls mod.

We have fairly active and attentive moderation. Polls that have been done suggest most users approve of current moderation practices.

Other things that happened that people might not have mentioned yet

- Juggle has pretty much stopped updating the site
- We have a couple new forums like 'History' and 'Funny' that people dont really use
- The opinions section is an apocalyptic wasteland, do NOT go in there
- The voting system was overhauled so now its nearly impossible to give a sh*tty vote on a debate
- There are 30+ debates open for acceptance at any given time, 27 of which are usually pointless
- The misc forum has been converted into a spam forum
- The entertainment forum is filled with DDO fanfictions (stories people write using people on DDO)
- We have a legit hall of fame thread in the misc section
- Mafia has died down quite a bit
- nac is still a thing around here
- kfc unfortunately is not
- Dont send nudes to Airmax, that is frowned upon

F***, I almost forgot, DDO also gets a lot of 'spambots' on here, where new accounts advertise some stupid as hell product or service on threads all over the place. They do it on the forums, and also debates and polls. Its annoying as sh**

Sup dude. I'm out of the loop myself, but I think I'm at least more up to date than you, lol.

And mafia is definitely still running.
