Yep. My new name so no one can find me on Google (!).

Maybe you shouldn't have said "Yes, I am Max Power", in that case. Tongue

Welcome to the forum. Smiley  Unfortunately, current regulations require that members have at least 50 posts accumulated anywhere in the forum before being able to register to vote.  The main justification behind this requirement is basically to stop people from being able to get all their friends to register accounts purely for the purposes of voting for that person (which had, sadly, happened before).

Once you get 50 posts, this registration will take immediate effect.

Is is still 50? I thought we had reduced it?

It's 50 according to the version of Article V of the Constitution on the Wiki.

Yes, but if you look at the notes below, they indicate:

"^ Section 2, Clause 1 was amended by the Sixth Amendment to read: A person may become a registered voter if he has attained twenty-five posts at the forum. In registration, the person must state his name and State of fantasy residence; in addition, he may optionally state a political affiliation. "

Well, that's kind of silly.  They should really keep the information in reverse: relevant information in the main section and historical information at the bottom.

At any rate, okay, 25 it is.

I actually changed it at one time, but Peter said that the normal way of doing this is to leave the original in tact and put a note by it which is now how we have been doing.

Well in that case, the "normal way" sucks. Tongue

I suppose I should at least be a registered citizen of Atlasia if the president is going to nominate me for SoFA. Smiley

Al Etc, etc, etc.
West Virginia
Part of Moderate and Peaceful Progress Within The Limits Of The Law

---
After all, as GM I should really be above (or below?) serious politics, shouldn't I?

Does "Etc, etc, etc." mean you still want to be known as "Al Realpolitik", or do you some other preference as far as names go (or do you want to be called "Al Etc, etc, etc."?).

I also might note that "Etc, etc, etc." has 14 characters in it while "Realpolitik" has only 11, so it was actually more work to type that than it would have been to type your current name... Tongue

Al Widdershins would be prefered I guess. Or Al Etc.

Widdershins it is, although "Al Etc" is also a very nice name, if a little hard to pronounce. Wink

By "Conservative" do you mean the Atlasian Conservative Alliance?  There is no party known as the Conservative Party in Atlasia, although you are welcome to start such a party if you so choose.

There is also a Republican Party of Atlasia as well, which you may be unaware of.

Gabu, I used to be a member of the Republican party but now that I am no longer tied to the organzation I am branching off to form my own Conservative Party and urge fellow conservatives who feel the Republican party is too mainstream to join me

Okay, Conservative Party it is, then.  Just making sure I understand what your intentions are.

Everyone will likely ignore this, or give it negative attention, but regardless:

I didn't ignore it.

...Of course, that's because it's my job to notice these things... but you know. Wink

I've had enough of the Midwest as of lately with all these changes to make the region sound like a goofball-joke region, so I decided to switch regions. Please take note and make all necessary updates. Thanks.

Hashemite

Constitutional Union

Unfortunately, to prevent people from parachuting into a district or region to vote there immediately before an election, a rule is in place that no voter may change his or her state of residence until he or she has lived there for sixty days.  You've been in your current state for fifty-three days, so you'll need to wait one more week.

Sorry to see a newbie with an interest in the system leave.
Though given that the Mideast is probably suffering most at a regional level, things may be better off that way.

In terms of goofyness you've certainly moved to a less goofy region, though I'd suggest the Southeast as a better move if you really want to leave goofyness behind (or at least the Midwestern type of goofyness that I presume irks you).

But the Southeast has been touched by Mike Naso.  It is now unclean, and must be condemned and incinerated.

Is there somewhere I can get up-to-date with all the precedures and what has been going on? I've been out of the game for awhile.

Not a whole lot has changed at all.  For how much people whine about the game, they're amazingly averse to change.

Is the wiki up to date? I know there has been recent changes but some pages seem out of date.

The most important pages are, but many aren't.  I know that the voter roll is correct because I maintain that section. Tongue

Welcome to the forums!

However, current rules state that you must have twenty-five posts (they can be anywhere in the forum) before you can register for fantasy elections.  This was a simple precautionary measure to avoid having people create multiple registrations purely for the purposes of voting for a specific candidate.  Once you get twenty-five posts, the above registration shall be considered valid.

I encourage you to look around and participate.  We're happy to hear from you. Smiley

Anyone who wants to join me feel free to do so.

Your ineligible to vote in the upcoming election though
He was registered before this, so of course he can vote.

He can vote, but not from Kentucky; since his state of residence 10 days before the election was set at Arkansas, that's where he has to vote from.

I'm moving to the Midwest:

South Park Conservative
Ron Paul Party
Iowa

Unfortunately, you can't do that yet.  To prevent people parachuting into a certain district purely for the purposes of voting for someone there or getting elected there, federal law states that a person cannot move until they have resided in their current state for at least sixty days.

Didn't he just register in California or some state like that and not move? If that's so he's able to move once since it's like he's already been there.

Oh wait, you're right, he was already registered under the name of Chuck Hagel 08 in California earlier.

Never mind then, it's fine.

Welcome to the forum. Smiley

Unfortunately, current regulations state that posters need to have 25 posts before they are able to register.  This is simply to prevent people from bringing in all of their friends who do nothing but register to vote and then vote for that person.

Once you get 25 posts, your registration will come into effect.

Hi,
Are there any rules/laws for re-registration by old members? Assuming not,

Yes, there are.  They are that you're perfectly allowed to re-register. Wink

There is an urgent need to update party membership numbers on the Wiki, and I'm too bad in math and handling numbers to do it myself.

I wouldn't call it "urgent", but I'll do it nonetheless. Tongue  One sec...
