Post Announcing Ankokou as Group Leader of the Debate Club!
It is with great pleasure that I announce our newest group leader, the wonderful Ankokou! They will be leading the Debate Club and will surely breath new life into the group.


In an effort to clear up confusion, we would also like to take a moment to address why Ankokou appears to be a new member. Ankokou has been a loyal member since 2008 - 2009. Unfortunately, due to technical difficulties their account was lost, sometime at the beginning of September, through no fault of their own. The team was just made aware of this late last night. Ankokou has been kind enough to recreate their account and join the team.
To explain the situation further, the forum gets hundreds of spam filled posts a day. We delete these spam accounts from the forum, so they cannot post again. Sadly, a real member's account was included in the deletion. It was an accident, deleting spam can become overwhelming for the staff, and mistakes can happen.
The team isn't trying to scare any of you, we are just trying to explain the situation. We are sharing this knowledge, so you all know that we are human. I want to make this absolutely clear that this is the FIRST time this has ever happen while I have been apart of this forum. This is extremely rare and probably won't ever happen again. The team HAS taken steps in an attempt to prevent this from happening in the future.

I'd like to say that we can guarantee that this will never happen again, but we cannot. Mistakes happen and sometimes they can't be fixed. The team has learned though and will be even more carefully from this point on when working on the Admin Control Panel. Members do not have to be fearful of this happening to you. Please do not think that you have to stop actively posting to guarantee your account's safety. We are going to do everything in our power to make sure this never happens again.

I am really sorry this has happen to Ankokou and I hope that it won't ever happen again. It must be devastating knowing that your account was completely deleted and you've done nothing to deserve it.

The only good thing that came of this situation is it showed the team that Ankokou is a perfect choice to join the team. They have shown nothing but grace and dignity through this whole ordeal.

Let me be the first to congratulate Ankokou and apologize for the mistake.

Thank you everyone so much for the well wishes and congrats!

I'm very excited to be the Group Leader of the Debate Club, I hope to kickstart the group with interesting topics of discussion and give new life to the group in general. For anyone wanting to checkout the Debate Group I strongly encourage you to do so, as I will strive for and inforce having a enviroment where opinions (whether I or others agree or not on them) can be expressed freely.
Understand that there will still be rules, allowing the expression of opinion is something I strongly uphold but I will not allow any chewing out to be done by anyone. The Debate Group is somewhere that I want players to feel free to express their opinon but in return not to fear that others will get on them about it.
A debate is a discussion of opinions and not somewhere I will allow player bashing to go on, saying why you don't agree with someone's opinion is ok but remember speaking TO someone and not AT them will help get your opinion across much better rather than blindly raging at them.

With that said thank you everyone again for the super warm welcome!

Congratulations! Debate seems like a more challanging group to lead, but I'm sure you'll do great! Can't wait to see what you'll do. As someone who loves to debate...I'm very excited. Lol.

Congrats! (:
