Aloha, DDO!

Intro


In this update, I am going to roll out the new format for these updates which will be the template I use through the end of the term. I hope this format is engaging, and I am always open to receiving feedback on how to improve these updates, and, indeed, on any issue of concern to you.

I also wanted to say that we are in need of applicants to host the next beginners' tournament. Please PM me or Airmax if you are interested.

Updates

- The Update Format. Due to a lack of consensus in the feedback I received, the new format for the updates will preserve most of the old formatting with 2 exceptions: trivia will only be offered every-other update, and the intro will only be present if there are important requests I have of readers or appeals I need to make, such as searching for volunteers to host a tournament.
- Tournament Reform. We are nearing a tournament reform solution that, I hope, will be announced before the next update. The system I have in mind would allow any user to host a tournament and would be less restrictive than the current system. Please keep an eye out for this.
- The Advisory Panel. I just wanted to add that Smithers has joined as a panelist.
- Community Activities. Our administration, in furtherance of a campaign promise, is going to host a variety of community activities over the course of our term. The first of these activities is in the sign-up phase, and I hope these events serve to bring the community together and provide fun outlets for users. For the link to the activity (DDO Jeopardy!), see the next section of this update.
- Debate Mentoring. If you are interested in being part of Zaradi's New Member Mentorship Program as either a mentee or mentor, please contact Zaradi. This is an excellent program, and I'd love to see it continue to flourish.

What is your stance on allowing for DDO: The Movie to have its own stickied thread somewhere in the Personal forum or the Entertainment forum?

Why personal?

Personal gets a decent amount of traffic compared to the entertainment forum, there are currently no stickied threads in the personal forum so it wouldnt add to any clutter, and the movie is personally the coolest f*cking thing ive ever made

I think it would be more appropriate in the Entertainment or Arts forums.
