Aloha, DDO!

Happy Leap Day :)

Updates

- Tournaments. The "Bug Reporting" and "Enhancement" stickies have been combined to make room for the tournament thread to be stickied. The tournament policy is now fully up-and-running.
- OP of the Month. I have launched a program that will honor, on a monthly basis, quality OP's on the forums [http://www.debate.org...]. This program will hopefully direct users to good content and will encourage people to get more active on the forums. I will, depending on the response this receives, begin to work on putting together a panel to do this same thing for debates.
- Bi-Weekly Topics. The "Bi-Weekly Topics" has been officially reformed and will now begin to work on a new paradigm. This will be the model moving forward: (1) the program will apply to all forums except personal, funny, misc, and debate.org; (2) every 14 days the director will recommend good threads which already exist but are not more than 14 days old to Max for stickying; (3) if no good, recent threads already exist in a forum, the director will enlist someone to write a good thread for that forum which can be stickied.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I'm not sure if the 17h/17min is actually accurate - because I notice that the number 17 is the most repeated one on the forums, esp. with regards to 17 hours and 17 minutes. It could be similar to the glitch under friends lists, where it always portrays people as having updated their profiles "11 hours ago."

Interesting. I've never actually noticed that...but it may be because I don't really take much notice.

Because I want people to see these updates--I don't want them to just fade into the ether without anyone seeing them, because that defeats the purpose of having updates to communicate information.

Because I also don't wish to clutter the main forum. It's a balancing act.
