The DDO Membership Presidential elections are less than a week away so I felt it was time to provide a small update.

The elections will be held on Friday December 11th (the thread will be posted around 7pm central time) until Sunday December 13th (voting will end around 7pm Central).

Unless I get a volunteer (which should only be done by contacting me privately) I will moderate the elections.

Most importantly, I want to direct everyone's attention to the changes in the criteria for qualifying as a voter in the DDO membership presidential elections. Those are now as follows:

_____________

Members must have 2 months minimum of membership on the site, and must also meet just one of the following bullet points:

- 1,000 posts
- 5 debates without any forfeits AND 100 posts
- 3 debates without any forfeits AND 50 poll or opinion topics/questions that haven't been deleted by mods AND 100 posts
- 500 posts AND 50 poll or opinion topics/questions that haven't been deleted by mods

_____________

The following was determined through many discussion between the DDO president, myself and others, and has been posted in these forums a couple times for discussion. Without any serious objections in the past, these will now be used moving forward.

If anyone has any questions or comments, feel free to post them.

Good luck to all the candidates!

I would like to inform everyone that I am forming a super-pac that will hand out an endorsement to a candidate based on what kind of lucrative tax benefits they would be willing to provide to movie production studios for filming projects here on DDO, should they be elected president.

Name your price. We can work something out. I'll call it "Path to Prosperity." I'll close a bunch of loopholes, drop marginal rates, and bury in there a "tax credit" for your industry. Your effective rate will be negative, I assure you.

And Airmax, obviously.

Let's just reelect Max. He can't refuse.

I haven't exactly been following DDO affairs as of the last few months (or years rather) so let me ask, what are the roles and responsibilities of the DDO president?

There may or may not have been a gigantic controversy about 2 elections ago where someone won the presidency by preying on people who just barely were qualified enough to vote according to laxer voter standards....

Not really. Sorry, running on 2 hours of sleep the past couple days. Thought I'd pop in and say something to show I'm alive. Though I'm getting ready to snooze. I don't think it would matter much since there's really no formittable opponent to bsh1 and I don't think there will be one.

Wouldn't annexing the history forum allow us to learn from history and not invade the religion forum in the winter?
