Just a curious thing ..

what if we started a liberal presidential party on here?
due to the elections coming up, I figure we wouldn't produce a candidate this year, but instead endorse one together and then later on elect a leader and platform for the party to stand on.

Whatta ya think? Would anyone be interested?
Thank you for voting!

A liberal party for DDO President?

Or a liberal DDO party for President of the US?

A liberal party for DDO President?

Yes

I think having political parties would be fun, but it doesn't necessarily make a lot of sense, especially not with the dynamic of conservative versus liberal.

As you know, the reason political parties exists is because of a differing set of views and ideas from within the governed, this same dynamic doesn't necessarily exists for the DDO President. They are tasked with making sense of what members want from the site and presenting this to Juggle. They are not tasked to govern in any way.

If we had elections for moderator (something this isn't going to happen) this would make some sense, but DDO President is more of an ambassador/Public spokesman/Liaison role, rather than something that compares with an executive/President role.

I think we are more likely to see political parties evolve out of single issues. At one point I though this might be the issue of unbanning Askbob (something that will never happen - and the DDO President has no say on this anyway) and now it might come down to the party of "extremely wants Team Debates" versus the Party of "Is more indifferent to Team Debates" (or something similar).

So ultimately I don't think a liberal party makes a lot of sense, though the idea of parties is an interesting one, but due to the dynamics and electorate, I don't think is very likely or necessary.

Right, but those parties didn't necessarily reflect any differing views within the electorate. It was simply done for the fun of it.

Was there a significantly differing view from the Party Party and the whatever party... seems like it was parties for the sake of it... kinda like the VP.

Yoda, you are not
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Rivalslb Party. Think it was me, Panda, askbob, Tv, Bluesteel, WJM, and a few others. Maybe Koopin.

I agree with airmax. The essence of debate is rhetorical skill, beyond any political or philosophical point of view. The best debaters are those who can win a political argument from a liberal perspective then turn right around and win the same debate from a conservative point of view. Likewise, our evaluation of debate rewards the most persuasive argument irrespective of political position. Although partisanship is inevitable in social media, this site is enhanced when political perspective is made secondary to the contest and the skill of the contenders. Organizing along political lines disenfranchises the outsiders and discourages the consideration of multiple perspectives.

Rivalslb, that was it.... The point was though that the point of views of that party and the other didn't necessarily diverge in any significant way. Maybe on a few points, but nothing that would necessitate parties for electing a DDO President as we know the position today.

It was a bit more complicated. The Party Party wasn't serious and was popular when the Presidecy didn't mean anything (I think Cody ran with them). The Rivallb had a platform and ran seriously. I think we ran against Inno once or twice.

They actually ran on their own (Freedo), but when they saw that they were losing (in a 3 way election) they pooled their support to give Cody the win over Innomen in the 3rd election (Innomen would later go on to win the 4th election when they began meaning something).

Right, that's why I specified the President "as we know the position today". I know it was mostly for fun then, but this makes the parties about picking a side for little more reason than siding with friends or other motives not consistent with the general idea of a political party.

I do believe Cody ran with the Party Party, and I do believe Innomen lost when 2 of the parties colluded to defeat him.

I can see Parties (theoretically) being seriously used. Though not realistically. The Rivalslb Party attempted this but unfortunately right around the time Innomen changed the general way in which the position is filled.

Yeah I think there are some hypothetical situations in which parties could be used, and I personally like the idea. I think it would be interesting and if there were particularly divisive issues it would be useful in determining which side more members sided with. But as it is I don't see any practical purpose for it.

But if we were to elect a dual President/moderator, something as I said that wont be happening for several reasons, there would be a good reason to have parties, and the liberal versus conservative dynamic would actually make a lot of sense.

Well, I didn't run "with the Party Party". I actually have some interesting PMs with innomen requesting precisely the opposite arrangement. I was a Freedom Party guy, and the Party Party decided, I guess, to do their thing at the last minute.

what if we started a liberal presidential party on here?
due to the elections coming up, I figure we wouldn't produce a candidate this year, but instead endorse one together and then later on elect a leader and platform for the party to stand on.

Whatta ya think? Would anyone be interested?

Been done, this has.

Right, but those parties didn't necessarily reflect any differing views within the electorate. It was simply done for the fun of it.

Was there a significantly differing view from the Party Party and the whatever party... seems like it was parties for the sake of it... kinda like the VP.

Rivalslb Party. Think it was me, Panda, askbob, Tv, Bluesteel, WJM, and a few others. Maybe Koopin.

Rivalslb, that was it.... The point was though that the point of views of that party and the other didn't necessarily diverge in any significant way. Maybe on a few points, but nothing that would necessitate parties for electing a DDO President as we know the position today.

It was a bit more complicated. The Party Party wasn't serious and was popular when the Presidecy didn't mean anything (I think Cody ran with them). The Rivallb had a platform and ran seriously. I think we ran against Inno once or twice.

Right, that's why I specified the President "as we know the position today". I know it was mostly for fun then, but this makes the parties about picking a side for little more reason than siding with friends or other motives not consistent with the general idea of a political party.

I do believe Cody ran with the Party Party, and I do believe Innomen lost when 2 of the parties colluded to defeat him.

Well, I didn't run "with the Party Party". I actually have some interesting PMs with innomen requesting precisely the opposite arrangement. I was a Freedom Party guy, and the Party Party decided, I guess, to do their thing at the last minute.

hmm interesting. I guess it doesn't make any practical difference, it's just interesting that we have a fairly vibrant political history on the site.

I always wonder what it might be like to be President a second time. The first go wasn't entirely ineffective (there was actually considerable work done, but I didn't much care to talk about it), but I am equally curious as to what might have been accomplished had I been able to access the kind of structure we have now.

There's a greater legitimacy to the position and receptiveness of Juggle than there was before. I think you should strongly consider running this time. You obviously know the site well and have been around for awhile, I think you'd be a great candidate and the site could certainly use more serious candidates running in this election.

What's funny is that we did a lot of political party stuff when the election was meaningless, but once it meant something, the parties disappeared almost completely.

Kind of ironic. Though I think it makes sense that once it became serious the extra stuff that didn't matter just disappeared.

Sure, why not.
