No More Elitism

Day 1,795, 02:45 by Sir Winston S Churchill


Written by Don Dapper

Keyword Elitism
Elitism --- Elitism is the belief or attitude that some individuals, who form an elite — a select group of people with a certain ancestry, intrinsic quality or worth, higher intellect, wealth, specialized training or experience, or other distinctive attributes — are those whose views on a matter are to be taken the most seriously or carry the most weight; whose views and/or actions are most likely to be constructive to society as a whole; or whose extraordinary skills, abilities or wisdom render them especially fit to government


Today I address that has always bugged me since I joined the game The Title given to Mr Woldy Member King of England http://www.erepublik.com/en/citizen/profile/1313810

Now if member's want to role play even more that is fair enough but everyone is equal in this game and Title's shouldn't be handed out to members and not ones like the King of the England

Even Famous people have joined us today !



and even young children calling for the title to be removed



I take a quote from Woldy's profile

Divinely Appointed King of eBritain, Canada, Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Jamaica and Ireland.

Really Divine who by a member on the Forum ?

This would'nt be so bad if didnt try and use this as a selling point to intice new members into the party his in

The same party agasint the house of lords when UKRP was in power !
The same party that's used that in it's rise to power

We found a letter send out to new members from this party most was just rubbish like this part

Quote :But, one thing we don’t have……is you! We’re looking for the leaders of the future. For the next congressmen, ministers and even country presidents. We’re uniquely positioned as a party to offer opportunities and assistance. No other party has produced so many congressmen or alliance leaders (amongst a host of other positions – we even have the King of eUK as a proud member)!

Confirmed writer Dan Moir Day 1,794, 15:05 I wrote that : )

There you Go trying to win over new members with this self made Title King of eUK

New Era believe's we are all equal not matter if you have been CP a few times and died for your country , we still bleed the same blood and Mr Woodly does not come from royal blood so the people now ask the government to remove this fake title and stop this nonsense

There is no king of eUK there is no Divine ruler

There is only the people

TIME FOR A CHANGE TIME FOR NEW ERA






Join us Today New Era http://www.erepublik.com/en/party/new-era-472/1

POWER TO THE PEOPLE NOT THE ELITE

Divinely appointed by our eGod, Bob Boblo.

Silly.

Furthermore precisely what is it that makes me an 'elite'?

Our community has formed it's one traditions and figureheads, do you even know why I am King?

What harm do I do by being called a 'King'? There's a long story behind the Kings of the eUK, perhaps you should look into it and perhaps your misconceptions will be altered. Furthermore as I have said elsewhere, if what I do as King is roleplay so too is what you do as Congressmen.

Now your Elite friend's gave you this title all TUP members at the time !
Nothing personal I have mailed you you have done alot of good for country and hard work sure , but this title need's to be dropped !

Mr Woldy
Mr Woldy Day 1,795, 04:59

Those titles were actually suggested by leaving CP's as part of the honours committee, they then have to be approved by the committee which is laid out in order to make it as fair and equal as it can be, so your point is kinda moot. As I've said on the other article if you need a hand getting to grips with how these things are conferred then I can assist, but it's hardly elitism, it merely rewards hard work.

We can only look to the future if we can embrace our past.

This is a game - A game which has a degree of role playing in it. Just because you dont like the title doesnt give you the right to take away his title. Your name is King Hannibal of ASIA - should the community force you to change your name because your not a King either?

The king has no formal powers - it is just a bit of fun. Feel free to declare a new monarch if you want and choose to follow him/her.

Pfft.

A name and a Title given is different, the point is .

TUP were using this title to recruit new member's like a selling point to join them Elitism

There is no King of England Here Everyone is equal but in TUP eyes some are more equal than others

Mr Woldy
Mr Woldy Day 1,795, 05:25

So you want to punish me for something other people have done?

sounds equal bro

You could have declined the title why you was role playing on the forum !

Using children to promote anything [apart from diaper's and King Woldy's brand of childrens toys: axes and other dangerous devices] is disgusting.

You may call me V
You may call me V Day 1,795, 05:43

Not as disgusting as Elitism and how some people try and make themselves Elite controlling the game in forum's etc.

Best to kill all role playing and do whatever eRepublik limits its player is less fun.

The forums are organized by their own rules. You can stay out of it when you do not like their rules. It is all your choice. You can only change the forum rules and tittles when you play that game.

In eRepublik you can ignore it, but telling others are not allowed to play their role playing is sad.
If I am correct New Era wants to end the fun of role playing, it will be an empty new era...

You may call me V
You may call me V Day 1,795, 06:03

Oh that is fun ?

I would of thought making the country better would be fun ,taking on other nation's , is this what TUP have been doing all this time playing childish games in the forums instead of making our country great ?

He says he's king of Jamaica too, of course it is a joke, there is no Jamaica in game. Maybe you should pay 5 gold to rename your PP to Hannibal of Asia, he's not a king either.

It's no worse than say, the fantasy football you advertise in your newspaper - he's no more king than you are a football manager.

You may call me V
You may call me V Day 1,795, 06:23

Though you would pop up soon Danie

If his not a king then stop mentioning it in letters trying to get people to join you , we even have the King of England your right Joke is the right word !

Just declare one member of your party as emperor.

Emperor > King and your decision/award is just as valid.

Bernard Hoffington
Bernard Hoffington Day 1,795, 06:30

If Woldy took it as a joke i wouldn't mind him having the title. But seeing his comments in Goku's article and this one make me think perhaps something DOES need to be done.

Down with the king!

Having a King of the UK is pointless, it just funds people's egos.
I agree if we do need a monarchy then at least make it Elizabeth II

Rory Winterbourne
Rory Winterbourne Day 1,795, 07:18

You can't pick and choose which bits of roleplay other people subscribe to, while roleplaying yourself. Demanding that essentially meaningless titles are stripped from certain people while publishing your demands in the King of Asia's paper as the *insert made up title* of New Era is frankly ludicrous.

Rory Winterbourne
Rory Winterbourne Day 1,795, 07:39

Well, you are using your title as the Chairman of New Era to recruit people. That's another made up title?

You are essentially picking up on something that was a bit of fun to help the UK community to further your own agenda. Shame on you I think.

You may call me V
You may call me V Day 1,795, 07:54

Nope when TUP are using it as a recruiting tool like it some special award that is wrong

– we even have the King of eUK as a proud member)!

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 1,795, 07:59

I think part of the problem is saying the forums are separate from he game then using something from the forums as a recruitment tool in game. I suppose it would be like another forum awarding me the Vice president role now Ergo is gone so I use it in recruitment PM's..which I wouldn't do by the way.

Chairman of a party is an in game title awarded by the game so is legitimate to use in game.

Lol at gsfdgfs. Hit the nail on the head there. eRep is what you make of it.
Have to say it sorry Don as I think you're a top bloke.
But this anti TUP crusade has sunk to all new depths with this sad article.
Woldy king of eUK, why not!?!? It's a bit of a laugh from players who have been around for a lot longer than a lot of us who do you think you are demanding him & they stop using the title!?!?!

You may call me V
You may call me V Day 1,795, 09:19

in there recruiting drive yes they should stop using it !

Jordee14
Jordee14 Day 1,795, 09:28

Who cares if they use it in their recruiting drive though? It's just a made up title, it's supposed to be a bit of fun, as is this game!?!? So this is arguing for the sack of arguing & it makes eUK look even more weak!!
People don't really think "oh look TUP have the king I should join them"!
And let's be honest TUP's recruiting is at a pitiful leveL which is why all the other parties are catching them, so it can't be working!?!?

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Day 1,795, 09:30

He was appointed by popular demand to a joke role because he ran loads of quizzes and stuff on the forums. You are not the chairman of New Era Don Dapper, you are just roleplaying as you are not even a member, read your profile. There is no in game connection between NE Poland and NE, it is just roleplaying.

Elitism: the strict regulation of who is allowed into the clique. This is not the case, obviously, look at the number of non-TUP Ministers currently. Also look at the fact of their recruitment.of new players, surely that's a sign of their openness? I'm afraid your anti-elitist view makes you miss the seeing the biug picture. Im new here, but my brief research and asking questions has answered my questions and disproved your claims of elitism. Just do some proper research on the eUK past.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Day 1,795, 13:31

The elitism is that they they do soak up new players (to indoctrinate) but once you get established they will ignore you if you don't agree with them.

Mr Woldy
Mr Woldy Day 1,795, 14:13

that's kinda made up tosh tho

Danie Fox
Danie Fox Day 1,795, 14:28

Ignoring people you disagree with? Maybe that's why you refuse to use the forums - everyone on there disagrees with you.

GameChanger
GameChanger Day 1,795, 14:41

Its not like Woldy has any special privileges, like we have to give him extra stuff and bow down to him.

His job is to make life here fun, whether though competitions or lulzy articles.
I think you are overblowing this completely too

I was considering joining NEW ERA, but I think I'll stick with ESO now

Jordee14
Jordee14 Day 1,795, 14:55

I'd not turn you back on NE just because of one slightly misguided article and admittedly there is a very vocal minority that aren't showering themselves in glory at the moment. But NE does have some good ideas, also some very poor one, but it's worth giving a chance & a few more voices of reason are exactly what we need.

Dr Hugh Jardon
Dr Hugh Jardon Day 1,795, 15:28

I was in ESO, sadly we had a PP - Beta who couldnt be arsed to do the job he ran for. So I joined New Era

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Day 1,795, 15:51

Danie Fox: I didn't refuse to use the forums, I was a massive contributor with many posts, topics made and even *shock* forum laws written and debated. However I was honest and called out inactive ministers, leading to forum ban after forum ban for trying to be an opposition.

Malkaiser
Malkaiser Day 1,795, 15:53

Now I am not allowed to use the forums, so saying that I refuse is a lie.

I am better for it though and the in game media is better for it with my activity moved here. It is a shame that there has to be so much bad feeling over it but these people just can't loosen their control just a little bit and alolow free speech, they MUST lock threads and issue warnings to nurture their fragile but large egos.

C B Fry Day 1,795, 16:02

> the in game media is better for it

I beg to disagree.
