Words cannot express my disappointment with this game.
Yesterday, the 24th of February, using the game mechanics provided by eRepublik to Presidents of the top 5 Parties, I set a ranking of Candidates for Congress based on the collective will of our Party Leadership. This is the responsibility of the Party President alone, to do some time during the day prior to Congressional elections.
For some reason the list I set did not "stick" in the system.
Of the names I adjusted, only one remained in place, the first name kody5. Some time between 17:00 and reset, all of the rest of the names reverted to their former positions in the list.
I responded by sending a ticket to the game administrators on the morning of the 25th. In it I described what had happened and requested that they revise the list according the the order I had set on the 24th. I provided them with a copy of that list.
They replied that they would not interfere with an election already in progress, but that any information I could provide for them would be helpful in troubleshooting for further elections. With this response they also closed my ticket.
I responded to this with a much more urgent plea combined with the assertion that by choosing not to support the sitting Party President in fixing an ingame Candidate list that was broken, they were effectively abandoning this dynamic of the game. I encouraged them to examine whatever browser history their servers would have on me, providing them with the exact time I logged in and adjusted the list. (I know what time it was because I immediately posted in the Federalist Forum PDB that the list had been set and looked good.)
I have not been given any reply to my second message.
Over the next few days I plan to reevaluate my commitment to this game.
To the Federalist Party,
To the candidates whose month it was to be elected to Congress,
To the 6th party candidates who relied on the Feds to provide access to a seat in Congress,
and to the entire eUnited States whose February Congressional Class will be diminished in quality by the absence of several excellent Federalists,
I am sorry about what has happened.
I do wish we played for an administration that treated the integrity of this game as seriously as we do. Their lack of action in this matter has taught me much.
