(I'm putting this in the Misc. Forum so that it's less of a violation of that pledge thing.)

My platform revolves around a DDO Government as a way for the members of DDO to make DDO a better place through their efforts.
The more updated version of my platform may be found here:
http://www.debate.org...

But what I haven't explained is the long-term direction that I desire for DDO to go in.
This is it:
That DDO would eventually become an "autonomous website".

That is, Debate.org would be run by a registered business called "Debate.org enterprises" or something like that. This business would be run by DDO members (a large degree of its management would by done by select "elite" members), and the Site's revenue would come from ads (or from donations from members, in an emergency). All updates to the Site would result whenever there was a sufficient surplus in profits, and the nature of updates would be decided on by DDO members.
I hope that this idea can be met within several decades, and I'm sure that DDO will still be around by then. Basically it'd become a syndicated business that every DDO member would have a say in.

That's my long-term objective for DDO, and it starts by building the Site up at the userbase level.

A plan that would take "several decades" is probably not good for a position that has a six month term.

True, but with a six month term as President I might be able to get the process started.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.
