New Era wins the January Congress Election!

Day 1,894, 10:37 by Goku Jones

New Era has always punched above its weight and has been coming 2nd in Congress Elections for a while now despite being rank 3 party, both running alone and in coalition with PCP.

This month we came first.

While we drew with TUP and UKPP for seats, we have ~50 less members than the UKPP/WRP coalition and ~100 less than the TUP/UKRP coalition. We win that draw on the activity of our members and having the most total votes.

The only thing we came second on was the activity of our members, despite it being significantly more than UKPP and TUP. 74% of our party and PCP voted which is outstanding compared to all but one other party. ESO beat us with their 97% however that is explained by many of them being "neutral" in Legion MU and not being in ESO in game.

What is next? Firstly well done to everyone in New Era for winning this election.

I wasn’t involved and can’t take credit as I have recently been attempting to be neutral and help every UK Party as a Government Minister. This hasn't worked as most TUP, UKRP and ESO players just want drama so I will be re-joining the effort to grow New Era and our friendly parties and ignoring negative people who just complain and nothing else.

So I also want to congratulate the constructive parties UKPP, OV, PCP and WRP for their Congress gains! I have a great respect for all of your parties in your own unique ways :)

Our task now is to finish the job we started months ago when I came back to the UK. UKRP are almost out of the game, ESO are hurting and TUP is in decline. This is allowing the Government to start to implement reforms which will be kicked into overdrive if we all support Alfagrem for Country President with his radical manifesto.

The end result will be the elitist tyrants dethroned once and for all as the UK starts to long process of building and improving itself for the future - in a game and community we can all really enjoy together.

The Raw Data I used to analyse the election is listed below.

Party: NE+PCP
Rank: 3+7
Members: 170+53 = 223
Votes: 164
Activity: 74%
Congressmen: 8+2 = 10

Rank: 2+6
Members: 226+87 = 313
Votes: 160
Activity: 51%
Congressmen: 8+2 = 10

Rank: 1+10
Members: 268+13 = 281
Votes: 151
Activity: 54%
Congressmen: 8+1 = 9

Party: ESO
Rank: 5
Members: 113
Votes: 110
Activity: 97%
Congressmen: 6

Party: OV
Rank: 4
Members: 127
Votes: 79
Activity: 62%
Congressmen: 5

If you are reading this and you are not in New Era, why should you join?

New Era is developing its members, not its leadership.

New Era is representing players who play the game, from the game.

New Era is experimenting with new methods and concepts, without fear.

We won't exploit you for votes, we will share with you what we have and you will share with us your new ideas. We don't just say this, we do it. Our Congress is full of new players, players from other smaller parties and we have tons of giveaways:

PM me to get this when you join New Era.

Watch out for these in weekly articles, comment to get supplied.

For this week, rank 1 player in the UK and idol of mine Alfagrem is running for eUK President soon. Please comment in this article with either:
* I support Alfagrem for Country President!
* I don't support Alfagrem for Country President. I support ___________.

PM me if you take or want one of my jobs for a raise. This may be reduced soon with wages and gold prices dropping, but it will always be above the top paid job on the Job Market.

We have more from our members in articles and the party shout bar most days!

Get in touch at #NewEra and #BulldogsHQ on Rizon IRC, Comment or send me a PM.

- Sage Goku, eUK Governor

I support Alfagrem for Country President!

Alfagrem Day 1,894, 10:42

ESO has actually taken some steps towards constructive policy making of late!

Check Jamesw's pre-congress article - Lots of words as per usual but at the very end you can actually see them edging towards, actual, detailed policy.

Could be 'dead-cat bounce' but then again they might finally decide what they stand for, spell it out and stand proudly behind it.

I'm happy to have more parties to work with! What a statesman Alfagrem hehe

A good win for NE and PCP, just a shame the public face has so much scorn for patriots and statesmen.

jamesw Day 1,894, 10:54

As always, negative about the people and parties you disagree with. Eso at last nailed down some policies, long overdue, bit there are plenty of parties who run for congress without any policies at all apart from 'you are in our party you should vote'

as for your standard anti ESO retort, the majority of our forum members don't use pd, so haven't been involved in your arguments, nor do they care about your dramas.

as for the language used, tyrants, really? I think you need to listen to don, Hugh et al and start playing erep as a game, not a crusade.

"Attacking external criticism is far easier than tackling internal problems, the resolution of which could undermine the very basis of the group in question."

There are no elitist tyrants Goku, stop the crusade against imagined enemies and start trying to fix the things that are actually broken, like the lack of congress discussion last month.

Frerk Day 1,894, 13:30

26% or w/e it is you got isn't really winning, but at least you're the biggest party in that regard. Congratulations!

goku is just excited, forgive him. I'll write proper articles about proper policies for a proper future, properly.

Alphabethis Day 1,894, 14:08

proper and prosper future.

Alphabethis Day 1,894, 14:18

one comment: in the long term, I wouldn't mind that TUP wins an election too, it's healthy to change ruling parties form time to time. I'm not interested in "unicity", even if it's yellowish.

UKPP actually won on the basis of 1 party votes, so its actually NE/PCP won

Just stating fact

Wow! 97% turnout for ESO. Interesting...

jamesw Day 1,894, 18:45

Bought votes, personal and political attacks. Thank goodness you don't represent or speak on behalf of the majority of NE. Notice that the negativity is aimed at YOU, not NE. The reason for that is simple, entirely your fault, and up to you to fix. The moment you drop your imagined crusade against the non existent tyrants and join the normal people who play this game for fun, the moment you will realise you're basically the only person still believing and producing this bile.

jamesw Day 1,894, 20:34

The countrys money was in Bank of England, and was returned there by admins - who have still not returned my currency/gold that was taken. This is something I've told you countless times, and you can read accounts from others - you bring it up solely to try to discredit what I say.

I'm not a troll at all - I respond to criticism in kind - although I admit I am not used to having to respond to criticism of a party from a Government Minister. I am not bullying Goku, I am responding to him - just as he 'responds' to others on the forums, IRC, and on here. The only thing even close to 'bullying' I have been a part of was in IRC, when Goku tried to say I was mentally unstable because I'm gay, and tried to assert that all gay people have something wrong with them.

As for writing about peace: I dont just write about it, I actively seek it, and you'll hopefully see the results of this soon: ask Hugh about that. As for ESO elections, we put forward members of our party that want to run, and focus on new players. Their Military Unit has no bearing on whether we run them or not - why would I favour an MU that is not connected to ESO, and I myself am not even a member of? It doesn't make sense.

I would like to apologize for the way in which politicians are
represented in my son's article. It was never his intention to
imply that politicians are weak-kneed, political time-servers
who are more concerned with their personal vendettas and
private power struggles than the problems of our nation.
Nor to suggest at any point that they sacrifice their credibility
by denying free debate on vital matters in the mistaken
impression that party unity comes before the well-being of the
people they supposedly represent. Nor to imply at any stage
that they are squabbling little toadies without an ounce of
concern for the vital social problems of today. Nor indeed do
we intend that readers should consider them as crabby, ulcerous,
little self-seeking vermin with furry legs and an excessive addiction
to alcohol and certain explicit sexual practices which some people
might find offensive. I'm are sorry if this impression has come across.

Wait - the flame war between ESO and TUP? But you said, and still say, that TUP and ESO just work against the UK - as does Goku - which do you believe? Do we flame each other, or work together all the time? Surely it can't be both (in fact, its neither).

And as requested, from the MoF at the time Emergy Maxfell,

"The big news of the week is we got all our orgs and all our money back, WOOOO! The good thing about that is it returns us to a position of financial strength. Now we're not spending out of daily revenue which is highly stressful from a management standpoint. Also, should any unforeseen event arise which requires us to spend money, we'll have the funds needed and ready to go."

Take from the CP report located here:

(You'll note there is no mention of me, because I was offline for roughly ~2-3 weeks after due to no laptop, having to recover/etc)

Another good, gritty (borderline drama inc. comments) article from Goku. I hope people understand these crusades are the enjoyment some of us take from this game.

A traitor to NE or a guy just trying to play the game and get involved. You decide.

Removing them isn't enough - they shouldn't have been posted to begin with Wayne.
