Hi there, IDU, this is Kanoria of the SLU, I have been elected to our minister of foreign affairs position, and just wanted to let you know. Also elected were Mons Garle to the domestic affairs position and Vernima to immigration. I hope the IDU is doing well. Feel free to contact me or our ambassador to you!
The election for Delegate is now open.
Voting is open for one full week from now.
Candidates = Sciongrad, Grellania.
Eligible voters = ears Armed Mission, Bellopax, Eenen, Great Bellium, (Grellania), Herpothamnus, Hyrkatria, Lumeau, Malabra, New Cleveland, Saltatio, (Sciongrad), The Dark Star Republic, Toumba... The candidates will be presumed to have voted for themselves unless they say otherwise.
Vote by logging in to our regional forum and sending a PM through there addressed to 'The Ballot Box', then post in the thread http://s10.zetaboards.com/IDU/topic/7534575/1/ to say that you have voted so that people will know how many votes in total have been cast.
Election Committee: The Dark Star Republic, Gnejs, Bears Armed.
Hooray! It's been a very long time since we've had a contested election. Best of luck to Grellania, and many thanks to those that volunteered to be members of the election committee.
Remember folks, you need an account on our forum if you're going to vote. I'll check the list of members about once a day to see whether anybody else has applied.
We're about halfway through the election period, and so far only one of you (not counting the actual candidates, who are automatically presumed to be voting for themselves) has actually voted...
This is slightly disappointing.
Candidates are free to make campaign speeches, of course...
I am waiting on some campaigning. :P
Hi everybody, as you all know, I'm hoping to represent you guys in the World Assembly once more, and I'd be remiss if I didn't share with you what my plans are.
As this election pretty clearly demonstrates, the largest issue we face as a region is stagnation. This is pretty clearly a flaw in what our forum has to offer, but it also might be that the limited number of active players in our region prevents those things that are forum does offer from being enjoyed optimally. So as delegate, my plan for breathing some life into the community has two prongs: an aggressive and constant recruitment campaign, which I plan to carry out with a telegram script, and brainstorming and implement some new forum activities that might spark some activity. CIDUS is actually something that I feel would be quite popular if only we had more nations to participate, for example, so a focused campaign of recruitment and reform should really provide the impetus needed to stimulate activity.
However, while our forum activity can be described as sleepy, our GA legislative activity is unparalleled. Active use of our own forums for drafting and helping those of us who haven't yet but would like to participate in the GA is something I would very much like to see. On top of that, as a player, I've formed several relationships with large regions that would allow us to really capitalize on the influence of the gameplay world and solidify our role as the GA giants of the game. We have the resources to become a well known region with massive influence and a unified sense of regional identity, and I know that with a little bit of effort we can achieve that.
If anyone has some questions about policies I haven't addressed or would like clarification on what I've already said, feel free to ask.
I'm not voting. But I endorse Sciongrad.
