You Guys asked the questions so here are the answers.
Q Dr Hugh Jordan ask: I would just like to know why he thought another party needed ATO'ing despite it not breaking any ''ingame rules'' as the rules they apparently broke did not go against the game rules set by the admins of eRepublik but activity that is outside of the game (forums etc etc)and despite other parties had done exactly the same thing even the previous month - which was accepting citizenship requests without Keers approval.
Ergo First things first - with regards to the suggested ATO actions targeted at New Era, the issue was discussed in the private Congress forum. This area is supposed to be for Congress members to be able to discuss without fear of retribution. However, I'll elaborate on the actual discussion since our resident leaky faucet Goku Jones already posted the entire thread in his newspaper. For anyone that read my replies in the thread, it is easy to see that I never once condoned PTO (actively taking over a party) but was in favour of ATO - the main difference being that ATO involves spreading voters between the other parties to minimise the congress gains of New Era. However, as I found out shortly afterwards, Don was readily admonishing those who had acted out of line and reprimanded them for doing so. On top
of that, BaskB entered the discussion to offer the opinion of New Era and was especially concerned with the leak. The response was knee jerk, make no mistake. But this sort of thing has been seen in the past and our instant reaction was to try and minimise the damage. Perhaps it was foolish of us to react as we did but New Era as a party proved that they were on top of the situation and it has since been resolved.
iBurton ask: Any tips on being so highly ranked in the euk in the space of 5 months?
Ergo: As far as actual stats go i.e. strength and experience, I'm pretty novice. I managed my initial Gold gains badly and have very low strength in comparison to most others. With regards to politics, I'm an eager and keen player. People picked up on that any gave me a shot. I gained a lot of ground by being willing to supply tanks in the MoD for hours on end. Talon saw a potential in me and decided to give me the opportunity as vCP so I could potentially run for CP. I wouldn't say I'm highly ranked at all - I've just been lucky to get some good opportunities.
Mick Cain asks "In October of 2012, Talon Karrde was elected President of the UK and chose Ergo as his Vice President. While gladly accepting the role, the exposure along with further splintering factors within the UKPP, Ergo decided to leave the party and remain as an independent politician for the time being."
What splintering factors?Also he was elected by members of the UKPP,which after being elected he promptly left and is now a TUP member.He can no longer represent the members of the UKPP who's votes elected him .So is he going to resign from congress?
Ergo: The splintering factors that I referred to were several members who have been referred to as the "radical" elements of the party. Those who hold true to the anti-establishment policies that the party was built on. As I've said before, I have no real problem with this but when it becomes such an issue that senior members are encouraging novice congressmen to launch impeachment votes and bullying others into accepting citizenships outside of the standard procedure, I felt it was time to leave.
I appreciate the comment that I was elected by UKPP members and it's not something I would forget lightly. However, that does not bind me to the party, nor does it require me to quit from congress. If I made it into congress because I represented the UKPP members, then my independent status doesn't change that. I represent the same values and ideals that I did when I was elected.
Goku Jones asks: Ergo Deus is banned former TUP Congressman Mahlak Dependus, He has admitted this.
My questions is why he left TUP for UKPP, while liking TUP enough to support their CP candidates and forum and disliking UKPP enough to leave the party this week.
When he returned to the game he must have seen that the same people are still in TUP, unless he is a sociopath and didn't make friends the first time around?
Ergo: If I could first of all clear up the issue about my previous account - I was banned, not for nefarious deeds, but for spamming an article by Logamac using a comment bug that allowed me and a handful of others to post 10,000 comments on his article. I left the game after that due to Uni commitments and general boredom as the game moved into V2.
As such, when I rejoined the game, I didn't "leave TUP for UKPP", but rather started afresh in UKRP. I met Wayne Kerr through the Dental Corps and then joined UKPP because UKRP wasn't offering me any real challenge or promise of progression.
The reason I supported Talon's ticket for CP was because he was the most viable candidate for the job. There was no-one else on the ballot who could compete with his experience, his contacts or indeed his attitude. He's easily the friendliest player that you could deal with on a daily basis.
And, as for leaving the UKPP, as I explained in my other answer, it was out of disenfranchisement with where the party was headed - or should I say railroaded.
IronfistsTempest asks: What do you think will be this years Game of the Year? ( Any platform)
Ergo: Medal of Honour Warfighter purely because it will be adored by the console nuts. Speaking more broadly, I'd hope to see something like Sleeping Dogs get the title.
Don Dapper asks: Will Santa visit me this year ?
Ergo: No, Your too busy helping the Admins come up with more ways to make Gold.
I hope you guys enjoy this next up in the series is Minister of Legislative Affairs (MolA)and commander of the NHS unit Blueandevil!
