Does our registering post count as one of the 18?


Yes, we just look at your post count.

Dont think this is the official register thread Phil. Check out the sticky at the very top.

I am registering people from both threads.  However, I do wish StevenNick and Gustaf would agree on one thread to be used- either un-sticky the other thread and sticky this one, or link the other thread in Forum Headquarters instead of this one.

These are all issues that the forum has spent MUCH time debating, discussing, rehashing, and finding agreeable solutions.  You've been here for about a day, and the first thing you do is tell us how screwed up we are and what needs to be changed.  Why don't you just hang around for a while and see how things work before you start trying to change everything.
4279  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:The Federalist League on: August 30, 2004, 03:21:50 pm
We just went through establishing 10-state regions, thanks to Niles hard work on the subject.  My understanding is those are supposed to be final.  Why amend the constitution with all these rules about how to change regions?

Gustaf,

I commend you for having the courage and sense of righteousness to step down.

Now that you are no longer the President, I am wondering what your course of action will be regarding your role as moderator.  Will you begin to be more active in that role, or do you intend to give up that as well?

I don't want to be overly critical, but we had an entire election happen last weekend that never got stickied- the runoff in D4.  Turnout was significantly lower than the original election, the fact the thread wasn't stickied may have affected this.

We have another election this coming weekend, I hope that one will get stickied.  Again, I don't mean to be overly critical, just asking a question.

Thanks,
Fritz

Truly an awe-inspiring editorial, and I hope that certain people- namely, Demrepdan and Supersoulty- can draw some inspiration from it.

Ernest, while I admire your work, you have a knack for making things way too complicated.  Wht is all this necessary?

Voting closed (and has been for over an hour).  Harry wins 6-3.

GA-BU!  GA-BU!  GA-BU!  Cheesy
4285  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:District Four Run-off Jabbering Thread on: August 29, 2004, 07:37:27 pm
One interesting twist on this run-off though...Htmldon voted for Harry.  In the original election, he voted for Josh (after WalterMitty).  If he had just voted for Harry the first time, we wouldn't need to be having this run-off.  Tongue
4286  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:District Four Run-off Jabbering Thread on: August 29, 2004, 06:53:50 pm
The point of the run-off election is supposed to be, people who neglected to vote in the first election can break the tie.  In this case, the tie will be broken because people who did vote in the first one, didnt vote in the run-off.

Kinda sad, I think...
4287  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Vote for PPT on: August 29, 2004, 05:03:51 pm
Harry, as PPT you will need to close the public poll on the Home State Voting Reform Amendment on Tuesday.

The problem with that is, I thtink only JFK can lock voting on the poll, since he posted it.
4288  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Special Senate Election in District 5 on: August 29, 2004, 04:47:24 pm
With Gustaf's sudden resignation, Senator John F. Kennedy has ascended to the Presidency.  This leaves a vacancy in the Senate in District 5.

A special election will be held this weekend, September 3-5.  Unfortunately this will be Labor Day weekend.  If any voters anticipate having a problem voting because of this, please post in this thread.

I will allow a deadline of 48 hours before polls open to declare candidacy and be put on the ballot.  This would be Tuesday evening at midnight, Forum time.

Thank You,
Fritz
4289  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Attention Supreme Court(Again): Complaint against the Senate of the Atlas For on: August 29, 2004, 04:35:47 pm
I urge the Supreme Court to throw out this frivilous lawsuit.
4290  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re:D4-B Aug. '04 Senatorial Run-Off Voting Booth on: August 29, 2004, 04:34:25 pm
No comments in the voting thread, please, King.  There is another thread more appropriate for "whos-in-the-lead" chatter.
4291  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Supreme Court Decisions? on: August 29, 2004, 12:34:39 pm
I'm not going to continue arguing this point, clearly we disagree and arguing won't change that.

If this case were to be brought to the supreme court, I think a regio would be the appropriate plaintiff.  Otherwise I think the SC ought to just throw it out.
4292  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Anti-troll legislation on: August 29, 2004, 12:22:56 pm
Mr. Fresh as the attorney general should do so.

NixonNow has thrown chaos into an election, which I guess Gustaf has dealt with by deleting the thread, and usurped authority by putting "President" in his name.

Mr. Attorney General?  I'll start a new thread to get his attention.
4293  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Anti-troll legislation on: August 29, 2004, 12:07:37 pm
Senators,

We need legislation passed to combat the actions taken by trolls such as NixonNow.  Such trolls need their Atlas Forum citizenship revoked.

Please act on this.  Thank you.
4294  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Supreme Court Decisions? on: August 29, 2004, 11:57:40 am
There is no single line in the constitution that would defer such matters to the congress. In fact, there is no single line that gives them ANY authority into such matters.


Sure there is: "All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in the Senate of the Atlas Forum."

The regional "govern themselves as they wish" clause does not override the senate's legislative power.
4295  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Supreme Court Decisions? on: August 29, 2004, 11:29:21 am
The fourth amendment you mentioned:

Each region has the right to govern themselves and carry out regional elections as they wish. They may have as many elected or appointed Regional Positions as they so choose. However, they must have a Governor to govern the region and act as the Chief Representative of the respective region. No region is to contradict any law set forth in the Constitution regarding federal elections. Districts have no authority and are meant only to represent the people of the Forum by the population from within that district. No region is to contradict any law set forth in the Constitution regarding the rights of voters. Regions have jurisdiction over any district that lies within it.

How do these laws violate this?  Sure, the regions have a right to "govern themselves as they wish", but that does not supercede the Senate's legislative abililty and right to pass the kinds of laws you are talking about.
4296  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:District Four Run-off Jabbering Thread on: August 29, 2004, 11:10:18 am
Actually with Htmldons vote, Harry's in the lead 4-3.
4297  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:District Four Run-off Jabbering Thread on: August 29, 2004, 11:07:47 am
Thanks to Niles for getting the ball rolling on this election for me.  I have taken care of my academic emergencies- had to pull an all nighter, which I haven't done since I was an undergrad.  Anyways I'm back on the job here in the forum, and I'll be able to close out the election at midnight tonight.

So, district 4, are you guys going to vote or what?  Last I checked only 6 people had voted, 16 of you voted in the first election.  And we have another tie so far at 3-3.  Somebdy break the tie, please?  We don't want another one!
4298  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Atlas Forum Headquarters (Everything you need to know about fantasy politics) on: August 28, 2004, 09:56:34 pm
The constitution you mean?  Works fine for me.
4299  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Help! Someone take charge of this weekends election on: August 26, 2004, 05:48:03 pm
Our game moderator, Niles Caulder, has agreed to step in for me and be in charge of this election.

Have a good election, D4!
4300  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Help! Someone take charge of this weekends election on: August 25, 2004, 01:16:50 pm
I love this forum, and I spend way too much time here.  I know you all appreciate my hard work and dedication.

Unfortunately due to my forum addiction, my schoolwork has been getting badly neglected.  My classes end this weekend, I really must buckle down and stay the hell out of here.

Would somebody PLEASE administer the runoff election in district 4 between Harry and Josh22.  My suggestions would be Nym90 or KEmporer as court justices, or Governor Htmldon since the district is mostly in his region.

Thank you, I know you understand.  I have to do this.  I'll be back next week when my classes are over.

Fritz
