So I just wanted to note a couple things.

1) DDO Elections

The DDO Presidential Election will be held the first weekend of July. The election following that will be held the first weekend of January. This should make following the end of the campaign season and the actual voting, a bit more convenient for many people.

2) Please sign up for the DDO Champions League

Sign ups are closing very soon... and it'd be nice to get a few more spots filled... So sign up now!

thanks

Do you have an opinion on DDO presidential term limits?

Also, I'm not sure if the tournament can technically be called a Champions League if I'm not in it. Can we look into calling it something more appropriate (e.g., The Average League)?

I think 2 terms is probably best... though that's not something I'm strongly opinionated about.

Also, I'm not sure if the tournament can technically be called a Champions League if I'm not in it. Can we look into calling it something more appropriate (e.g., The Average League)?

Well I think the solution is for you to join the league then... Spiderman said that if you joined he'd strongly consider it

I just immigrated to this site, what do I need to do to become a citizen so I can vote in the election?

Seriously though, maybe you should require some kinda "citizenship", so socks aren't made to disrupt the voting process.

Just repeatedly post in this thread until you reach the minimum post requirement: http://www.debate.org...

also the 5 debate requirement isn't hard. You can accept debates from Vi_Spex or instigate short debates not caring if you lose and you can reach the debate minimum easy.

.Just make sure you reach the requirements BEFORE the voting starts, since last time I checked you can't reach the requirements during the voting period to qualify to vote.
