This is an AMA for our Presidential administration, to check in with DDOians and to address issues of importance to them.

While any questions are fair game, I would prefer questions be substantive and topical to the site policy and/or the Presidency. Questions asked after noon, EST, on the 15th will not be answered. This AMA will last from I would ask that everyone posting on this thread observe common rules of civility.

Ask away :)

For anyone who is curious, this is posted in the misc forum in order to avoid cluttering the main forum or pushing down good threads there or elsewhere.

I've been on the site for nearly 7 years now and I think the evolution of the forum and its content is worth some discussion. Specifically, as new topics are generated, it necessarily replaces old content, insofar as they are steadily and often quickly removed from the user's immediate viewing sphere and either lower on the page or onto subsequent pages. Now, this dynamic has shifted with the more widespread implementation of stickied content. With this, we have select threads highlighted - quite literally - as worthy of continued, specialized attention. Such a move will inevitably alter, to at least some extent, the themes and/or general atmosphere of the forum. To the extent that the stickied thread was or currently is generating additional discussion, such a change in context will impact user's attention, inclination to create additional threads, and further the content of said threads and the length of time with which such threads remain on the front page of each forum category. Given this, my question: Kirk or Picard?

Lol. Picard, definitely. Though, Spock was the better first officer.

Its concerning that you do these AMAs so infrequently. Can you add quarter-term AMAs as well?

I am always available to answer questions. The AMA is a very public way to do this, but anyone could ask me questions on an update or via PM or on the Presidential Bulletin or in a topical thread on a given issue. I try to always do 2-3 AMAs a term because I want to remind people that I am always open, and to quite literally invite public scrutiny. And, this one will be about 6 days long, so there is plenty of time to take questions.

AMAs often require a significant chunk of my time, and so I am reluctant to do them too often. Though, if this is something people want, I can do an AMA at the mid-way point between now and the scheduled election.

We need to be able to attach notes on people for personal use , I do it on my poker site and when people pop up they have a square if I've put a note on them. I click on it , and I see what we were talking about last time . On poker I click on and see how much cash I lost to them . Your good at your job and answered my 2 questions I had for you . I know nothing about the presidency thing . But you should remain their.

I am not empowered to make these kinds of site updates, but if I ever get the opportunity to liaise with the people who can make those changes, I will mention it. But, I think you can just reference your PMs with the person, too.

Using the search bar is only possible once, unless you change pages. If you search for X, the results show up as it should, but if you search for Y on the same page, it will have no effect, and stay on X's results.

I have never experienced that myself, but I am also not in a position to get Juggle to make bug fixes. If anyone can assist you, it would be Airmax.
