Does it ever concern you that a DDO President might be just a disaster? Does it concern you that they might steer the site in an unfavourable direction? Does it concern you that they might be dishonest, wield a heavy hand, show favouritism, or enact bone-headed ideas? Or are you overwhelmed by all the options, thinking they all have a good idea or two? Are their platforms too complicated to really evaluate fairly? Do you cringe at the notion that you might simply be voting for somebody because you just like that person, and not because they'd necessary be good for the site?

If any of these things concern, then let me make this simple for you. If I am elected President, my vow is to do nothing. That's right. I will not enact any new programs, I will not lobby with the moderators or Juggle to change anything, I will not initiate any tournaments (anybody can do that, so you don't need me), and I will not try to run things at all. I will simply step back and let the site take on its own personality. I will leave it to the moderators to do their job without my interference.

If you don't want a lot of change and hair-brained ideas, then vote for me.

Sorta

Or are you overwhelmed by all the options, thinking they all have a good idea or two?

All 2 of them? Its pretty much Me and DK at this point since Wylted's campaign is functioning as well as Jeb Bush's.....

On second thought, I don't want to compete with you. Who can do less than nothing? I support you. I'm still running and all, but I'll vote Imabench if you can give me your word that you'll do nothing if elected and if you'll vote for me.

It would violate my pledge of doing nothingier to vote for you, because then I would be doing something, which goes against the principles that the founding fathers of nothing chose not to do anything to stand up for, since standing up for their philosophy of nothin would mean they did something, which was against their philosophy

Further. Bench has the most complete description of nothing.

Well, I'm voting for you anyway, but not in my capacity as President-elect, so I can still claim "nothing" as my platform.

That's not his platform at all. His platform is the opposite - going for maximum attention and drama. He claims to want to abolish the presidency, but airmax has said he'll respect "no president" votes, but imabench still wants to be president, because he wants to go down in flames and gain all the attention for ending it. He wants to be the last president. He wants it on his signature forever.

Yes. 10009000000x simpler.

If any of these things concern, then let me make this simple for you. If I am elected President, my vow is to do nothing. That's right. I will not enact any new programs, I will not lobby with the moderators or Juggle to change anything, I will not initiate any tournaments (anybody can do that, so you don't need me), and I will not try to run things at all. I will simply step back and let the site take on its own personality. I will leave it to the moderators to do their job without my interference.

THATS MY PLATFORM (for the most part)

It is??? Then I guess the competition between you and me is which of us will do nothinger.

That's not his platform at all. His platform is the opposite - going for maximum attention and drama. He claims to want to abolish the presidency, but airmax has said he'll respect "no president" votes, but imabench still wants to be president, because he wants to go down in flames and gain all the attention for ending it. He wants to be the last president. He wants it on his signature forever.

Newsflash dumba**, if you just vote 'no president', then theres no system to be implemented afterwards to allow for users to keep pushing for changes.

Like, apart from pushing for them?

How is it that youve been a part of this site for 10 months and you are still so ignorant of how things work around here? smh >.>

You're like the Ron Swanson of DDO. If by chance you don't get the reference, he is a character from Parks and Recreation

Funny you would say that. I've seen all of Parks & Recreation, but I'm starting over from the beginning tonight.

how many seasons did it last?

All joking aside, though, Donald.Keller is probably the most serious candidate in the race.
