What happened to the voter's union. Now it's barely active.

...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

I was never in for the prizes. I don't get a PM with a list of debates anymore, so that's why I'm disappointed.

I wasnt in it for the prizes, or even the points really (more so lately). I was just using it as a list of good debates that deserve votes, so if I had time and felt like voting I could scroll through that. I've done that a couple times but was just too lazy to say it was for the Voters Union and everything. Too busy now

What DK made should serve as a guide to anyone who comes after in what not to do in offering prizes for votes. Take the prizes away after several months, and you have this. The incentive shouldn't be free sh!t, it should be participating at your will to benefit a site you like.

This was one of the great casualties of the DDO revolution. TUF was a regrettable loss. The memorial committee is still fighting over whether to build a monument.

I was in it to improve my voting standards. I had no way of cliaming the prizess anyway lol, so they didn't matter to me. I just decided to stop voting on debates in general.

This happened after the last president election. The office was abolished, and TUF and DonaldKeller left the site. If not permanently, then for a prolonged time.

So, what exactly is/was the voter's union, anyway?

It was a group of users in a PM that voted on submitted debates that were of quality in an attempt to increase the amount of decent votes on debates with the relatively-new strict voting moderation. It disbandad when DonaldKeller and TUF, the leaders, left the site. Most of the members were just in it for the prizes anyway.

Very shortly after the abolition of the presidency.

DK and TUF used Steam or Amazon to give away a lot of prizes like games or movies.

This was one of the great casualties of the DDO revolution. TUF was a regrettable loss. The memorial committee is still fighting over whether to build a monument.

Airmax and Whiteflame are regretting the fail of the Voter's Union, and deciding on to make a monument called, "The Great Voting Loss"

What DK made should serve as a guide to anyone who comes after in what not to do in offering prizes for votes. Take the prizes away after several months, and you have this. The incentive shouldn't be free sh!t, it should be participating at your will to benefit a site you like.

That seems to be working out well, based on the reactions of the people in this thread about the lack of voting.
