I promised a post a day, and I plan on delivering on that promise. Though I admit that not every post will be a 'home run,' I will still take my place 'at bat' every day. If this blog has one theme, it is to just keep plugging away...
Now then, today in fact I want to keep this brief, because today is not about me. Today is Election Day here in the eUS. And so, regardless of how they end up doing, I want to thank Ghinculov, Zoli, Candor and John Killah for running. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with every plank and platform they stand for-- the fact is, at least they are trying. Running a country, even a virtual country, is a difficult and time-consuming proposition (whether you end up remembered as a hero or villain by history). It takes time and dedication. And so for their simple act of volunteering to serve, I want to take a moment and thank the slate of candidates.
And for her time in office, especially as she was the President when I first joined, and as it was her Fed powerpoint videos that helped teach me the game, I want to thank Fingerguns. I think I learned more from reading her after-action debriefing than from any other post I read up until then, as it gave me a unique insight into her, politics and eRepublik.
Especially as a recommendation from one new player to the others out there: don't reinvent the wheel. Read up what others have done before you. There are many websites and forums out there with awesome training threads and how-to videos.
So that's it from Cheyenne Mountain today. If you have voted today, then I thank you as well. It's each and everyone one of you that keeps this game community as vibrant as it is.
