1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ok everyone, here are the screenshots from the thread to prove adam's trolling. on: Today at 12:54:08 am
One clear historical example people have to keep in mind is June 2014, when Labor won the Presidency by five votes over a TPP/DR ticket, with 11 out of 40 Federalist Voters casting votes for the Laborite to be President (we didn't have anyone available to run, RL is a pain sometimes). That was one time Labor a dash for populist right and not libertarians (makes sense since the other ticket had a libertarian on it). One month later they put one of their most extreme members in charge of the Senate and nearly passed a bill nationalizing power companies. Needless to say those 11 Federalists regretted their votes. Labor was devastated in the August midterm elections, putting a coalition of Feds, DRs, and TPPers in charge of the Senate.

Weirdly enough, I was one of those 11. I don't recall why I voted the way I did, but I remember that Sirnick was pretty pissed at me and wouldn't drop the subject for quite a while.

I liked DemPGH a lot. I worked with him when we was VP and I was PPT. I also liked working with Windjammer for the short time that he was VP and was impressed with his work in the Midwest.

If anyone had reason to vote for DemPGH it would have been me. However, I knew that as long as TNF remained an untouchable god within labor and also remained the center of the Labor Senate caucus, putting them in charge of the Senate (by electing a Labor ticket to break the tie), meant that it would get sacrificed at the altar of Labor partisanship. They had several people far more suitable for the position, even Griffin himself at points and yet insisted on foisting a extremist into the position, a position that calls for level headed stability not wild extremism and erratic behavior.

Yeah ftr in October LLR took my Senate seat the Monday after election weekend

Then again, I didn't even make it to the next Monday, so maybe I'm a bad example Tongue
and that's where I came in Tongue

The way that I counted votes when I was PPT was to count the seat as voting (ie. Northern Class A) rather than the individual at the times when seats are going to change hands. So if the seat changes hands during a vote, the new Senator could 'replace' the vote for their predecessor. Smiley

So did I, except half my chamber was At-Large and succession for At-Large was always rather complex, particularly when multiple seats changed hands.

What happened earlier is that I have done these polls since like 2009, and therefore have hundreds of saved browser entries that help make it look more professional and make it quicker. However, until late 2014, they were always done using AOL with IE as the default browser so those were saved IE entries. Since IE is not working, I cannot use IE to compose these polls and it is really going to matter once I get to the House one, since 18 poll entries is going to be really painstaking.

Problem is that Chrome has its own seperate brower entry history and therefore it cannot access IE. However, one browser I do have installed that can is AOL 9.6. And there is just something special about pulling up the question for AHDuke99's Presidency and splicing my name into it, that I just could not resist deleting the thread and starting it over.

I apologize for the inconvience. Tongue

Gustaf is not as active as he used to be.


Him and Jedi used to moderate this board together, until Jedi was demodded when he left the forum for a long period of time.

Though AFE/AFG is far more mellow than it used to be, it probably wouldn't hurt to have another mod over them.

STV in statewide districts

Interesting but the number of candidates in say California and votes would make it rather complex, no?


"Independent" commissions are just a different type of gerrymander IMO. How about minimizing county splits.

Some commissions are bad and some legislatures are pretty good.

Commissions alone are not enough. Iowa has a whole county requirement and combination. Commission offers the legislature maps and if they reject the first two, whatever the third map is, gets picked.

You have to have a good set of a rules. A good set of rules can leash a bad legislature to bring it under control (Florida). A Commission with a weak set of guidelines can be just a bad as a legislature (Arizona).

Some of the best maps in my opinion of the previous cycle were drawn by courts (New York and Colorado).

Considering all the years I sought to try and regionalize the Regional Senate elections, one would think I would not only be aware of this, but would celebrate it daily.

The simple fact of the matter is I remember a conversation with Tmth about trying to regularize the whole process of swearing in for Senators to a set date and for some reason thought that he had passed that.
