Just say in this forum if you will run for president, or if you will not, to make things easier.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

Wtf you must have an IQ of 250 if you're 11 and already decent at this- 16k

Technically, all users are running for president because if they get majority vote, even if they didn't announce anything, they'd be forced to be president.

My Fellow DDO'ers,

This is a hard time for us all. You see, when Edeb8 sends its people, it's not sending its best. They're bringing spammers, they're bringing flame wars, they're votebombers, and some I assume are good people. We have no other choice: we need to build a great, big, beautiful wall with Edeb8 that Lars will pay for. We have no choice: we need to make DDO great again!

That is why today I am announcing that I am not running for the presidency of DDO. Make someone else make DDO great again!

http://www.edeb8.com...

Lars, who is a former DDO member who comes around every so often to advertise his annual tournament, launched it a few years back. It only has a few members, but the features are quite exceptional. Of course, it's technically DDO's "competition," so Trumpian analogies to Mexico are fair game, lol....

The scale or formula for ELO might be different, but the volume of debates is far lower on edeb8 for obvious reasons.

Really, you think "secret topics" are bad?

I think just choosing whatever topics you like to debate doesn't help you grow as a debater nearly as much as picking a random past PF topic.

Not "bad" by any means; I only agreed that some were a bit weird, and while some people might jump at the opportunity to debate any random topic, I like to specialize.
