I'm not in poverty now, but I have known it. I don't think there was a year during my childhood where we made over 20,000 dollars a year. We were on foodstamps and I started bringing in money at 16 because I had to. I didn't get to keep that money that I brought in performing in small Elks clubs and places like that that did open mics. I was homeless at 18 for almost 7 months... I lived in a two room apartment for awhile and I ate ketchup packet soup because I would only have a few dollars and I had to decide what that was going to go for... It wasn't fun.

I really am sorry this happened to Kal. It'll probably happen to whoever takes the office in the future. You're either ignored or run out of town and the job is a grind when you're trying to crunch numbers and if you're like me and not terribly good at the math side of things, it can be hell.

I dunno if the office is going to survive now. But if the game really is just all about running and winning elections, then I'm sorry, but I just find that idea boring. I supported Kal's story, even if he went over the top. I wanted to at least see where it went.

My own passion for this game has reached a very low ebb, so maybe it's time for a break for me. We need to decide now what this game should be.

I resign as Northeast Representative.

I strongly believe you did as good a job as anyone could.
6  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: --- Emergency Alert System --- Nationwide --- on: June 23, 2015, 06:38:56 pm
Yeah, Cynic did a great job with the position and his performance was met with near-universal acclaim. I'm not sure what a nuclear attack, assassination attempts, or repeated rebellions are supposed to achieve aside from demonstrating how bored you are. Stories like these are dramatic but not particularly interesting or engaging for other players. They're not even related to anything that the game's players have done. It's just chaos for the sake of chaos, and most Atlasians will ignore if just as they've ignored the last half dozen stories that have no connection to anything that real people have done.

I wasn't perfect and neither was Kal, but I know his heart was in the right place, better than Nick's at least. I think Kal did as good a job as one could do and if there was anything negative about it, it was that he'd feel bored. The next GM has a bit of a mess to clean up, so I wish that person luck just as I wished Kal luck when I had to resign. It's a tough job, he did his best, and we at least owe him that.

I'm a federalist at heart, but I figure we needed to have the debate and hash it out there as to what sort of powers remain with the NE and what powers remain with Nyman.

I DO NOT support independence. Absolutely, unequivocally not.

25  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is There Any Hope for A Re-Unification of Atlas? on: June 14, 2015, 01:02:41 pm
Atlas After Dark users want:
- Update brought back to Atlas proper
- Opebo and other banned users to return
- Liberalization of anti-sexual content ban.
- More leeway in general with cursing, etc.

Of all these things, I really only really want one of them and that is the leeway with swearing since I frequently say hell, damn, and sh**t.

I kinda enjoyed the sexual content fun we had at AAD until the inevitable warning from ProBoards, which I knew would eventually be coming.

As for opebo, I honestly could not care less about him, nor did I ever really like him.

As for Update... Yeah, I'm kind of ashamed of myself for getting into it over at AAD.
