I have reviewed the program and has concluded that it is failing. We need to either get rid of the system or change it. We will begin by surveying the most active members of the site to see what there opinion on the issue is (we will not be including the option to abolish it in the first survey, only ways to improve it). We will try and keep the system working however if it doesn"t work then we will review it further and possibly abolish it, as the popularity and knowledge of the opt in system is low and in many cases it has been proven to be largely unnecessary on debates causing people to grow negatives opinions on it.

Famous and Wylted have both expressed interest in reducing voting standards. When I confronted famous about it, his response was "use the opt in guide instead." But if you're abolishing the opt-in guide, that means all debaters have to be subject to terrible votes without complaining. If that ever happens, I'm leaving the site, or I'll just refuse to vote and debate with select judges only.

I will review the program and will make various adjustments to it but we will continue to use this. The main problem that we face is receiving an adequate quantity of mentors available however we will broaden our search for new mentors and will have a guide to new mentors so that they are aware of their expectations in mentoring these new users. We will walk them through the process so that they are confident and aware so that not only will we have more mentors but we will also have more experienced mentors to help these new users to debating and to the site. After looking into the mentorship program it appears that many users have been unsatisfied with their mentorship as their mentor did little / nothing however hopefully with our ideas to raise the quality and effort put in by mentors we will change this.

Name the "users . . . unsatisfied with their mentor[s] as they did little/nothing." The new member mentorship program has been immensely successful. Users like this (http://www.debate.org...) have become pretty good for new users.

--

Finally, all of this can be accomplished without being elected president. There's no reason to want to become president to do all of this. But what is implied: "None of these developments will be made if we're not elected." It's almost like a veiled threat.

Overall, I'm not voting Rosalie/Famous (and would urge others not to), and their platform has merely strengthened the argument for abolition.

Why do you think those benefits can only be achieved via the presidency?

Why do you think they would be better than DK/TUF, Harder/Solon and Imabench?

Rosalie, if we have term limits there will be no more presidency in a year or two.

Eventually imabench would get elected.

Think about it...

The OP of the Month- A master thread will be placed in each section to continue this, :threads will be nominated by members and then voted on. The winning thread/s will be :submitted to Airmax for stickying. By doing this we can more accurately gauge the :interest of the community, and discontinue the program if interest fizzles out.

This is very vague. Why should we have to vote on threads? Wouldn't this deterroate these threads in the long run as people will end up "whoring" their own threads? How will this actually solve the activity problem? Why is the Presidency required for this and not just done by a forums mod or anything else?

Forum revival- We are aware that there are unofficial forum revivals however we will :attempt to make official programs and we will carefully monitor forum activity and :look at the increase in posts and then post our results / findings to the community at :the end of these forum revivals.

How? This is so vague. You expect that we look at the forums and watch them. Then what? What is your solution for this? What will solve this activity issue? Why don't you already have evidence on this before coming up to this campaign or this platform. If you are doing this then what's your solution to fixing this problem?

[1] Monthly Live Debates

Each month, there will be a "Live Debate". This will generally take place in the Google :Hangouts. There will be a "sign-up" forum introduced. There will be 1 debate per :month. Prior to signing up, you must have an opponent who is willing to do the live :debate with you, and you guys must agree on a topic. You and your opponent will :have the opportunity to do your debate at the very beginning of the month, or at the :end of the month. Members of DDO are allowed to come and watch. If you wish to do :the debate privately, that is fine as well. It is up to you and your opponent if the :debate will be judged on, or not. If you wish to have it judged, the debate will be :recorded live, and it must be posted on the actual debate you created on DDO.

Why? Why one debate? Why not have multiple people and why not just do things like TUF's Live debate tournament. Surely with your policy being successful as you're saying it will be, but why restrict it to one debate a month?

Here's what i got for the roast contest:

1 - This platform is so bad that I turned to the bible looking for answers, and im an atheist

2 - This platform is so bad that M Night Shyalaman has offered to buy it as a script for his next movie.... The title for it? = 'The why-is-this Happening'

3 - This platform is so bad it makes sense now why Wylted decided to be prosecuted in Delaware rather than campaign on this.

4 - ISIS has higher approval ratings than this platform
