Technically Nix's vote may be invalid and Spamage's valid.

Under the application of any such principle both must be allowed.

By leaving the polls open long enough for NCYankee to cast his vote, I unknowingly indicated that DST was being disregarded. In such a case as this in which it is not clear whether a vote is valid, it is the imperative of the SoFE to count a vote if it is possible rather than to invalidate.

This sounds reasonable enough. I'll count Spamage's vote. Here are the new results:

PROVISIONAL RESULTS

With 11 first preferences for Simfan34 and one abstention, Simfan34 is elected as governor.


With 7 first preferences for Gully Foyle, 2 for Turkisblau, 1 for jojoju98, 1 for Superique, and 1 for Paleobrazilian, Gully Foyle is elected to the Legislative Council.

After redistribution, with 7 preferences for Turkisblau, 2 for Superique, 1 for jojoju98, 1 for Paleobrazilian, and 1 exhausted, Turkisblau is elected to the Legislative Council.

After redistribution, with 8 preferences for Superique, 1 for jojuju98, 1 for Paleobrazilian, and two exhausted, Superique is not elected due to having not implicitly or explicitly accepted his candidacy. Therefore, after redistribution, with 2 preferences for jojoju98 and 10 exhausted, jojoju98 is elected to the Legislative Council.

I was about to bring that election up, and, curiously, the two people affected were... Spamage and myself. Tongue

I am not sure if I would be allowed to permit his vote- the Pacific Constitution is clear on the duration of election. I will need to seek counsel.

But let it be noted that I closed the booth before 8:50- I had just unlocked it to post the provisional results

I don't think you guys have fixed your clocks for DST. I'm seeing the following:

Spamage's votes denied though his vote was cast 10 minutes before the deadline.  This does alter the election results.

No, no it was not. Voting booth opened at 08:04:47 pm, closed 72 hours later. Spamage casts his vote at 08:49:11 pm. He's past the deadline. Nothing ambiguous about it. I obviously have no desire (I like higher turnout) to disallow his vote but it's completely clear cut. JCL's math does not add up.

Yeah... on the one hand, I know I'm getting milked by all these franchise films (I mean, all  they have to do is slap a title on it, and I run down and hand them 10 bucks), but I don't care. They're fun to watch, so screw it. Watching the Avengers now, as a matter of fact; that's why I thought of the reference.

That Loki guy sure is hard to get along with...

Whereas Scarlett Johansen, on the other hand, seems quite easy to spend some time with.

  The ‘Pimco Bond People’ interviewed on CNBC, I think it was Friday, maybe Thursday, says, the game of chicken is the game. , The SELL, the cash out is here and greed has its finger on the button.

 Yes, I translated the pimco interview; understand pimco is a vender of the fed. 

 Understand also, that if it were not for the annuity inflow's of retirement payments to the market, the first in - first out for a fee market, the market would be at the pre-consumer banking model before the conversion to the investment banking present model. That would put the true hard currency reality price of the market in the 7000-9000 DOW range.

Okay, that's enough now.

So the cartoon is even more inaccurate. Huh. Well guess we have to shut off the electricity too.

Also Averroes started the write-ins for Superique, not me.

Well, I come to inform you that you seems to have won, by virtue of your vote and your vote alone, all but one other voter having chosen to exhaust their ballot. So congratulations on being elected, if one can call it that.

For those interested here are the provisional results:

And? There is no scandal here, a clerical error at worst. Do you want to enable Labor's tactics, Turkisblau? Are you trying to accuse me of making socks? If you wanted me out of office you should have had the courtesy of challenging me upfront rather than tracing a dagger on my back. You would have been far wiser for having done so before I (literally) won re-election with 100% of the vote.

Either you can be honest about your intentions or stop enabling this nonsense and stand with your party.
3192  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Atlasian Laborinth - CORRUPTION IN THE PACIFIC on: April 12, 2015, 07:20:05 pm
I was wondering why Paleobrazilian was on the ballot and it's odd that Simfan would vote for him when he never campaigned and kind of got ejected for inactivity from the Council back in January.

To deepen the plot, when Paleo came back to Atlas ~March 21st he posted longwinded Simfan-ish posts to the Brazil thread which Simfan repeatedly complimented as great.

...? I didn't vote for him. I gave him a fourth preference.

My, erm, apologies Nix. Not sure if apologies is the right word here, but when you mention something like "involuntary quasi-celibacy" things sound quite bleak. If the area is as bad as you make it sound I suppose there's little disadvantage, since you won't be missing out on much. Perhaps you can live in the log cabin?

Contrarianism this is not. It's quite consistent with everything else I say.
3196  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CA: Gov. Brown orders mandatory water restrictions (25% reduction statewide) on: April 12, 2015, 06:28:30 pm
And it's not like they need the water anyway, because who needs food? Or are we- gasp- supposed to care about farmers, the rural bumpkins? Apparently not, because it's the fault of "Big Ag" and not little Ag, since everyone knows Big Ag is just so much more wasteful and expensive than the good organic fair trade local artisanal growers.

Oh and fracking wasting so much water, 70 million gallons of it! It's not like there are solar plants that consume several times more water than the entire fracking industry.

In no way do the facts at hand contradict some people's forced-vegetarian, pro-depopulation, high-cost energy biases! Because that would be absurd.

Great political cartoon about the situation.

Except totally inaccurate and small minded.

This campaign is the height of opportunistic hypocrisy.

The main message was that she thinks that the system is "stacked in favor of those at the top" which is the main area in which work is yet to be done. Interesting. Does this mean inequality will be a campaign focus? If so, it's tacking to the left a bit, I think.

CONGRATS, ICESPEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously though, is this the first video of its kind to depict same-sex couples?

Well I don't think there were many videos of this kind before. But now I assume it's part of the obligatory diversity.
