    Yesterday, for the third time a member of DKM got jailed for hacking. His name was epicgod999. He had a building reputation in Doorknobia, he looked up to all of us, and what made him different than most DKM recruits is that when he dies trying to walk to one of our villages, he doesn't just rage quit forever.
    Like all recruits who made it that far, I had faith in him.

    However, yesterday he was jailed for hacking in LOP. Instantly, and radically, my opinion of him changed. When a DKM member is jailed for hacking, they are a major disgrace to Doorknobia, because that means they either don't care about us, or are just really stupid; or in epicgod999's case, both. This time, it thoroughly pissed me off because this is the third time this has happened. I made sure people were aware of how pissed off I was in chat, and told everyone in DKM that if I hear one more word of sympathy for epicgod999, it will not turn out well for them. But then it occurred to me that this is not what a good leader would do or say.

    Although I still think epicgod999 is a walking piece of shit, and he deserves no sympathy for doing something stupid that could easily be avoided by NOT doing it, I realized that opinion is mine, and not necessarily everyone in Doorknobia feels the same way. Which is why I decided this:


    From now until August 15th, Doorknobia will be holding presidential elections

    What will happen, is there will be 4 political leaders who will be voted into power. One president, and 3 council members to screen his/her decisions. Doorknobian citizens can propose an idea (bill) to the council, the council will accept or reject the bill, if it is accepted, the president will again, accept or reject the bill. If it is accepted, the motion carries.

    Any leader can be impeached if more than half of Doorknobia's citizens decide so, or a solid half and at least one council member/president decides so. Another leader will again be elected in his/her place.


    As for me, I will still lead the Militia, as the General, however policy and law are decided by the actual government. I also do plan to run for council, but not for president. On top of that, I will still speak on behalf of Doorknobia, and continue to do my duty to shitpost whenever there is a flame war or pissing contest on the forums.

    In order to vote, you have to SIGN a written book with your candidate's names on it in LOC, and drop it in a hopper on mattvision09's LOC plot. You must also be in the DKM channel to be allowed to vote. Simply ask mattvision09, and he will take you to the booth on LOC.



    Hail Doorknobia.

    Those of whom are running, it would be wise for you to make a post saying why you should be elected. This is the suggested format for doing so:

    Your IGN
    What position(s) you are running for (President, council member, one if not the other)
    Summary of your experience as a DKM member
    Why you feel you are right for the position

    This way just makes it easier, you can make your case in any manner you like.

    Running for: Council member

    I have been in Doorknobia since the beginning, and on the server for a long time. I have been fighting for Doorknobia since the days that meant fighting for 2 people you know personally, to the day that it means fighting for freedom, for equal treatment among the ranks, and for the vibrant and glorious nation on LOA we all know and love. I was the leader for both the Militia, and the Republic up until recently, and the entire time Doorknobia has excelled. I was there, holding tight to Doorknobia when the people we put our trust in would rage quit, or leave, or sometimes betray us. I was heartbroken every time, but I never let us give up. Finally, when the training wheels could come off, I resigned so Doorknobia could choose it's next leader. That is what came out of my time in DKM.

    I would be right for the job because I already am the general. With me as a council member, it will prove to be beneficial for there to be a strong link between the Militia and the government. In both positions, I am able to handle a situation where a fellow member goes rogue. I also will maintain my position as the representative, which is a good thing to have in the government. I know who most people on the server are with, what they stand for, and why ___ is on our side, but ___ would be on the other side. I would make effective decisions, and although my power should be limited as it would be, I feel I am right for the position of a council member.

    Running for: President

    My experience as a DKM member is fairly straightforward, everytime I saw a DKM base I proceeded to set its occupants free from tyranny rule and free from being told lies by their leader, then I proceeded to blow everything up.

    I am right for this position because Im toamini, that is all. I know how the world works, and I know not to betray my citizens, unlike their "leader".

    Setting people free, by blowing up their bases and trying to overthrow their democracy. Seems legit.

    I want to vote for Optimus Prime. He is a very hard working autobot and his teammates watch him fight instead of helping him fight the GR.

    1. Stop spamming the fucking forums with useless posts. Nobody cares that you are staring at bedrock.

    2. I know this is all sarcasm, but you were kicked out of Doorknobia and can't vote.

    3. heidiho01 was kicked out of Doorknobia, and even if she gets let back in, she can't run because her being let back in is a choice that is up to the future DKM government.

    Hey... Um, I guess I'll give this a shot....

    Name: XxLexLadellexX

    Position: Council Member

    Summary: I joined today, and I don't really understand everything, but I think I'm catching on.

    Why?: I've always been fair in judgement, no matter what it is. I know y'all probably don't trust me (since I am new), but with time you'll learn who I am. If someone gets upset with me (if I do get a position), I'll resign. Just asking for a shot :)

    I swear to protect DoorKnobia with my virtual life! Whether I get the job or not!
