I vote wylted I’ve seen first hand what RM does when given the smallest amount of authority; having seen some of his craziness when we had a task board.

I don’t think either of them will really generate any tangible improvement to the site; but I’m aware that Wylted has actually been trying to actively drum up external interest for increased traffic at various points this year; so it’s really a least overall harm scenario.

We had a task board involving a few regular contributors and the mods (like 3 years ago? Very early on); that started out being a place where issues and problems could be discussed, and talk about various problems. It deteriorated into a venue for a certain someone to air his personal grievances about moderator decisions, Bsh, and David.

Actually it resulted in me getting type1 banned for his alt that they kept doubting me about. After the disrespect and ignoring of me and random exclusion of Castin from it (who didnt want to participate after she realised she was never invited despite being a forum mod), I quit it and they disbanded vert shortly after, I wonder why if I was just a problem to it.

Mike, the site owner, appreciated my contribution so much he thanked me. You can believe what you want.

I have been calm throughout. Calm does not mean passive and cowardly.

Depends on the people clearly, some have far sounder judgement than others.

Everyone can form a baseless opinion, not everyone can and will form a well-informed one that they can defend.

If you of all people think this is me angry and lashing out, then it is amusingly good for me. I do not care to be known for my anger and this is so far from it that it benefits me if people presume it to be.

I just say gg wylted, whether you fail hard as president or succeed, I benefit excluding me getting wrongly banned during it.

I will address it later and thank those that voted for me regardless of the loss.

The thumbs up feature of the website is due to me alone on that task board. Ask the site owner. I also pushed for a redoing of the Help Center. That was all me. It was not teamwork, I was the only one putting in work for most tasksand Mike realised it too and was sorry for how it turned out.

Ramshutu was the second hardest working member there. He is lying about how things went.

I was the only non-moderator member of that task team/force. There is a reason I became invited and central to it. Otherwise it would have kept running after I quit it.

It is unclear where Wylted's original platform went, the mods deleted it due to him spamming, there is a sort of redo of it.

It's a shame that this farce will have a produced a Wylted victory, but so be it. Like David and Lemming, I abstain.

If you are on vacation, then technically that should make Badger president until you come back.

Assuming my tally is correct (I'll verify tomorrow when I get a chance), here are the results:

RationalMadman: 19 (RationalMadman, AustinL0926, K_Michael, zedvictor4, Lunatic, Sidewalker, Mikal, Intelligence_06, FLRW, SupaDudz, SkepticalOne, Reece101, Skipper_Sr, Barney, anderwee123, Tejretics, whiteflame, MeowRanger, WeaverofFate)
WyIted: 21 (YouFound_Lxam, Sir.Lancelot, Phenenas, Mps1213, Best.Korea, ILikePie5, WyIted, sadolite, Greyparrot, TWS1405_2, BearMan, bmdrocks21, Dr.Franklin, Mharman, SamStevens, Novice_II, rayhan16, badger, Bones, Vaarka, Ramshutu)
Abstaining: 3 (David, Lemming, Athias)

Votes for candidates who are in no way, shape or form running in this election:

whiteflame: 1 (That2User)

Several votes made in this thread were on accounts that were created during the election and, in some cases, were clear instances of multi-accounting. Some votes were cast by very recently made accounts prior to the election, which are under review. Should these results stand, WyIted will be the next DART President, though to be clear, until we review those votes, we cannot call this election definitively.
