Good job lannan, this was a good poll.

But on the first question, isn't a liason and a middle man basically the same thing?

I'm surpisedly happy on the other results, specifically with the age of the president and approval of vote moderation

Not surprised by this considering all the bickering and long election cycle this time around.

Makes sense as well.

Funny, with all the hoopla that's been going on 50% feel the Goldilocks' just right. No surprise here.

Your Approval of the bsh1 administration?
Approve 50.00% 20
Neutral 30.00% 12

Sounds about right.

Scratching chin on this, but will buy it.

Looks right as wells.

Yep! As suspected

Should there be Term limits on DDO?
Yes, limit to Airmax1227's 3 terms. 10.00% 4
Yes, Limit to 2 terms. 20.00% 8
No 47.50% 19
Either way the Presidency should be abolished. 22.50% 9

Surprised by term limits, but if the job is being done and there's support of the individual why not continue?

Good poll

Well on the Liason portion is the reference to Chris's platform of the liason to the Moderators instead of Juggle.

The high statistics on abolition are unfortunately too high.

The DDO blog should be..?
Re-instated into the forums 22.50% 9
Re-instated, but into the wiki 7.50% 3
Re-instated, but into the Blogs section. 32.50% 13
Not be re-instated. 37.50% 15

These results are good. Our campaign (when me and Rosalie were running), aimed to do this and our plan seems to be popular (even if we aren't specifically implementing it any more).

Acitivty on DDO is?
Very High 2.50% 1
High 10.00% 4
Normal 47.50% 19
Low 32.50% 13
Very Low 7.50% 3

I think this is accurate.

DDO Vote moderation is?
Very Strict 17.50% 7
Strict 25.00% 10
Normal 50.00% 20
Lenient 5.00% 2
Very Lenient 2.50% 1

I'm not sure that this entirely reflects an accurate opinion on moderation. In other polls the numbers have been very different regarding the lenience of moderation.

Your Approval of the bsh1 administration?
Approve 50.00% 20
Neutral 30.00% 12
Disapprove 20.00% 8

This also looks like an accurate representation on the sites views.

Should there be a Moderator for the Mafia games?
Yes, institute FourTrouble's Plan 10.53% 4
Yes, but institute consul of rotating members to balance games. 21.05% 8
Yes, but only to regulate the sign-ups sheet. 13.16% 5
No, but create seperate sign-ups. 2.63% 1
No, leave game as is. 28.95% 11
No, mafia shouldn't be considered an issue this President cycle. 23.68% 9

I'm agreeing with the majority here.

Should there be an age min. on the Presidency?
14, there shouldn't be any, if you're old enough to be on the site, you're old enough to be President. 80.00% 32
18, you need to be an adult. 17.50% 7
21, if you can drink then you can run. 2.50% 1

Technically no age minimum would be 13 and onward not 14. Though I did vote for the 14 option.

Should the Beginner's Tournament be...?
Ran by one user 10.00% 4
Ran by a rotation of users 55.00% 22
Ran by anyone. 27.50% 11
Be abolished. 7.50% 3

I'm shocked about the 3 votes for abolition of the beginner's tournament. I'd prett much agree with the first two options though. One specific user or a rotation of qualified users would be fine for me. Random users isn't particularly good and abolition is just a terrible idea.

Voting Standards on DDO should be?
Increased 10.00% 4
Left alone, they are fine as is. 50.00% 20
Decreased 32.50% 13
Abolished 7.50% 3

I think that the left alone votes are inaccurate due to the large number of complaints I've seen regarding this but the decreased votes look correct to me.

Should there be Term limits on DDO?
Yes, limit to Airmax1227's 3 terms. 10.00% 4
Yes, Limit to 2 terms. 20.00% 8
No 47.50% 19
Either way the Presidency should be abolished. 22.50% 9

I'm pretty neutral on this issue though the votes in favor of abolition are once again too high for my liking.

Here, the stats are 62.5% pro-presidential. I'd like to state that my platform appeases most of the pro-Presidency votes here, the two I highlighted. The last one is a bit too complicated to just say my platform does or does not appease. I believe the role of the Elective Administration fulfills the "Head of new and innovative Social Issues" part very well, none-the-less.

The DDO blog should be..?

I don't really care on this one. If it were re-instated, I'd prefer it be in the Forums.

Very High 2.50% 1
High 10.00% 4

Low 32.50% 13

Collabaration with other sites, and attracting new members via Facebook is a great way to fix that 40% low rating and 12.5% high rating.

Lenient 5.00% 2
Very Lenient 2.50% 1

I voted Normal... But I believe Voting Moderation is too one-size-fits-all. It's clear debaters need to be able to use a standard they believe in without forcing it on others who disagree. An Options-oriented system would work far better.

Your Approval of the bsh1 administration?
Approve 50.00% 20
Neutral 30.00% 12
Disapprove 20.00% 8

Approved.

Should there be a Moderator for the Mafia games?
Yes, institute FourTrouble's Plan 10.53% 4
Yes, but institute consul of rotating members to balance games. 21.05% 8
Yes, but only to regulate the sign-ups sheet. 13.16% 5
No, but create seperate sign-ups. 2.63% 1
No, leave game as is. 28.95% 11
No, mafia shouldn't be considered an issue this President cycle. 23.68% 9

This is something only Mafia players should be deciding on. It's not my place to answer this. I voted that it "shouldn't be considered an issue."

Should there be an age min. on the Presidency?
14, there shouldn't be any, if you're old enough to be on the site, you're old enough to be President. 80.00% 32
18, you need to be an adult. 17.50% 7
21, if you can drink then you can run. 2.50% 1

"Age is not a requirement to be President. Maturity is."

Should the Beginner's Tournament be...?
Ran by one user 10.00% 4
Ran by a rotation of users 55.00% 22
Ran by anyone. 27.50% 11
Be abolished. 7.50% 3

I've ran one before. They last into next month, every time. You'd be running this month's tourney while finishing next month's tournament... It's too much for one guy to do each one. And when he goes dormant, the Tournament would die. A rotating roster is best for this.

Voting Standards on DDO should be?
Increased 10.00% 4
Left alone, they are fine as is. 50.00% 20
Decreased 32.50% 13
Abolished 7.50% 3

Reformed to allow for all three options (not Abolishment.)

Should there be Term limits on DDO?
Yes, limit to Airmax1227's 3 terms. 10.00% 4
Yes, Limit to 2 terms. 20.00% 8
No 47.50% 19
Either way the Presidency should be abolished. 22.50% 9

If you want to elect someone because he is good at the role, why should you have to pick someone else? What are those 30% scared of? A tyranny? A dictatorship? I'd like to know why members are scared of someone getting a third/fourth term?
