In the past few days I had the pleasure of talking to many persons from Turkey. You have to know that we are allies with them. We have a lot of fun in chat rooms and generally speaking I am glad to speak with former enemies which I did not have the chance to do the past two years.
You see I think that this is just a game and I am trying to have as much fun as I can even if Plato has different opinion about fun. But I will not talk for him now…
So when Turkey joined EDEN I really did not know what to expect. I thought that might be persons that would dislike us. As I told you before we were enemies since the beginning. For one more time I was wrong...
These are good people. Actually we are the same persons with the same concerns, dreams and fears, after all our rl countries have common borders. In the processes of trying to meet them I spoke with many persons. I have to say that they were all very polite very helpful and willing to make me feel as much comfortable among them as possible. For example I was invited by
Gornicetli in their channel (#mad) and they were speaking English in order to understand what they were saying. This was something totally new to me.
In the past few days my new friends had something that we call “baby boom” and more than 6000 players joined the game. In that point I decided that I must help them, (I can afford to donate food) since erepublik money stays in erepublik. I talked with
Lord Vaako for this matter and I have to say that he was very helpful. One day he told me to join the channel with the new players. They thanked me for my donation!!! I felt really good not because they said “Thank you” but because they really mean this. I really didn’t want to say anything about this donation to anyone but their reactions made me so happy that I just couldn’t keep it for myself!!! After all in my opinion this is what allies have to do for each other.
For the conclusion I just have to say one thing. We might play just a game but behind every screen is a person. We must respect each other and try to become as helpful as we can because all that is worth in this game is making NEW FRIENDS not just allies.
