Aloha DDO!

Updates

- Tournament Reform. The mafia-style tournament reform has been announced, and it should be implemented shortly [http://www.debate.org...].
- The HOF. The Hall-of-Fame has been updated to reflect the most recent induction election. Congrats again to all of the inductees.
- The Advisory Panel. I just wanted to add that TUF and Smithers have had to leave the panel.
- 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. DDO Jeopardy! has already begun, with 7th and Skep locking in berths in the Championship round!
- 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.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day! So, here are three facts about MLK: (1) he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964; (2) King (along with George Washington) is one of just 2 Americans who is honored with a holiday on his birthday; and (3) the "I Have A Dream Speech," was actually delivered in Washington, D.C., though many people mistakenly believe it was given in Birmingham.

Fix'd.

This update is about quality content, not advertising trolling and not advertising "current events." Usually, people are already aware about those things.

The Presidency doesn't address frivolous topics. The Presidency decides what is frivolous. It's a rather neat arrangement.
