I have been quite upset with the leadership lately on the tournament issue.

The moderators shouldn't give us a sign up sheet to make debates. Any debater should be able to make a tournament when ever they want. I have talked to bsh and he claimed that if we didn't regulate tournaments there would be "tournament fatigue". We are debaters! We love tournaments and debates! We don't need a sign up sheet to make debates! I am very upset about this if I get banned who cares! I am standing up for the silent majority of debaters on here that never here about voting or policy posts.

I will be making a beginners tournament if you are interested contact me. A sign up sheet is not needed. When is the next election on this site?

Ban me if you want

Next election is mid-June, likely the 12th to 14th. No candidacy announcements as of yet (daytona's is coming any day), though word on the street is bsh is already prepping for a third term.

The moderators and presidents are horrible at getting the word out. Their polls are completely in secret, the policies are WAY too restrictive. I came here to debate not a long list of rules from the DDO "President"

There are beginner's tournaments made every month. I don't think you really need to make one.

Tournaments is plural, and even then, one a month is pretty reasonable.

I'm missing your point, if you even have one.

12 tournaments in a year for beginners is enough. That's 12 tournaments with 8 debaters and 4 mentors in each month. That's 96 debater slots for beginners during the year. If you think we need more forfeited beginner tournaments you strike me as someone who is incapable of thinking much through.

We need a revolution on this site, we need rule changes! You know what? I think an Lsumichiganfan presidency wouldn't sound so bad!

It's not a radical proposal, debaters should be able to make tournaments. Every tournament doesn't have to be a formal one. You are treating like this proposal is a threat to humanity. What harm can more tournaments do? Please tell me!

Yeah, I don't take that very seriously.

I've been active for 16 months - you've apparently had an accounts for 6 months. If you think that the site is falling apart, I would think you'd have to actually contribute decently to the site to make that judgement. 10 debates and 20 forum posts? And you're commenting on the state of how things are running? That's a joke.

If you've been led to believe this by, say, forever23, you couldn't have picked a worse member to consider the point-of-view of.

If you run 24 beginner's tournaments in a year when 12 already gave a pretty bad quality output, then you're just making the quality of things worse, and worse, and worse.

I have had an account before this, I started on DDO two years ago on the account Michiganman56. I don't post much I mainly read debates and forums. I am watching the site fall apart I have probably been on this site longer then you counting both accounts

Overall yes you will have some bad quality, but we need more tournaments. If we have more and more people being involved you may have some good quality tournaments as well!

No... A member who has been online for 6 months and thinks debaters should make more beginners tournaments should not be president.

I don't think you understand how supply and demand works. If, at the moment, there's twelve tournaments that hardly manage full rosters, doubling that amount with the same demand (and there's no reason to think it'd change), means it'd become vastly more difficult to get a full crowd in any one tournament, or at least more so than it was before.

Well, apparently sheer quantity is better than any quality whatsoever. That's a new one.

Hopefully this is just product of a young teenager's anti-authoritarian streak than an actual thought process.

You are misinterpreting what harder is saying. He is saying that the status of the tournaments are ready bad. Doing more will result in more bad quality debates. Quantity does not mean quality.

Next election is mid-June, likely the 12th to 14th. No candidacy announcements as of yet (daytona's is coming any day), though word on the street is bsh is already prepping for a third term.

A third term? Don't get me wrong, I like bsh1 and all, but I'm against a Third Term on anyone.

I don't think you understand what "tournament fatigue" is. It's not a problem for the debaters so much as the tournament itself. If there are multiple tournaments running at once, that'd mean more people will drop out of tournaments. Tournament popularity is critical to the idea of tournaments. Furthermore, per polls, the majority of DDO supports the mafia-like system of tournaments.

There's not an actual punishment for hosting a tournament like you are except community pressure. So, I urge the DDO community to not join any tournament which one doesn't sign up for -- even if you oppose the mafia based system, take it up in private messages with the administration (bsh1, Zaradi, Saph), and still don't join such tournaments until you've resolved the issue.

You can feel free to add your name to the tournament list when it comes up.

Furthermore, I'd seriously suggest that you add your name in the sign-up sheet. You'll probably be one of the first, and you can create regulations as you wish -- which means you'll both (a) be able to host a "beginners' tournament" like you want to, and (b) follow the rules.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

I have had an account before this, I started on DDO two years ago on the account Michiganman56. I don't post much I mainly read debates and forums. I am watching the site fall apart I have probably been on this site longer then you counting both accounts

I checked for that account. It doesn't exist, apparently. If it did...you would have joined the site at 11 years old? And judging from the apparent thought you've put into this you don't stike me as an especially bright young teenager, so I'm not sure if I really trust your judgement.

I haven't figured out how to change the age settings, so no I did not join the account at 11 years old. How dare you make false random statements!

That summary was written years ago, I will edit the profile if you wish!
