Kitty here! As I'm sure a good portion of you well know - Miss eRepublik ongoings have been happening. Something I was rather excited about as I had decided to be a candidate. Now normally I'm not big on the whole 'beauty pageant' ideal. Outer beauty is nice, but inner beauty is far superior. BUT! Since this was for the community as a whole, and for fun for all.. I was all for it. 2nd edition of Miss eRepublik
I was originally asked if myself or any woman I knew would be interested - I said not me. After a bit of time I decided.. ok why not? I asked other women if they were interested - all declined, but I know a few others did agree to join in. Fun right? I checked the rules. Ok - no biggie. Some time passed, but I knew we had plenty of time. Because the article CLEARY stated the dates.
Then guess what? YEP! This. Miss eRepublik eUSA National Selection Seriously? The well known PTO'ers are now the proper channels for eUS? Yea.. I don't think so. So the women that HAD agreed to participate said, NO! We are fighting against them for the security of our enation. Why in the world would we just forget that and jump on in with them? Many reasons were given, but let's be honest. We all know when it's a bunch of BS. Say whatever you want to make yourself look good to the other nations. The facts are facts and to assume that so many leaders can not open there eyes the mere slit that is required to see through the utter *censored* offered the eUS women is beyond absurd.
Few more days pass. Miss eRepublik eUSA Winner Annuciation Oh look! She won! UNCONTESTED! Well yea - nobody would work with the PTO'rs. Doesn't really take rocket science to figure that one out now does it? You can see where I've commented a few places. All I basically was told is.. WAA WAA WAA AFA/SHOE is handling this. So either hook up with us or gtfo. Yes that is strong paraphrasing, but it is what it is.
To clarify the eUS Vice President WAS handling things. As stated in his article [VP] Desperation in the Air and the Faults of the Miss eRep Competition . You can also see screenshots of the conversation he had with the man running the contest. BUT just in case you can’t make them out I have them for you. Honestly nothing more to say about this. This part is clear as can be.
Now - Do I care that I didn't win? No. I don't really. I care that other nations are considering the American PTO'ers as the official channels and not the eUS government.
Hannibal's newspaper is official? Don't think so. Yes yes... whine about how you hadn't seen an article yet. Deadline wasn't met. So I guess what you said didn't really matter.
Yea.. was not near deadline. THEN to add insult to injury!
I could of won - sure. STILL NOT THE POINT.
Point is this. By allowing the PTO’ers of our nation equal footing as our egovernment you are legitimizing them. Why would you do that? You can’t pretend lack of knowledge. Even if you didn’t in the beginning I am sure your inbox has enough messages for you to be sure. Not to mention comments on articles. Does that mean you play favorites? You cater to some that you feel a closer connection with, or do you accept money to look the other way? Because you were in no shape, form or fashion without knowledge of the situation. You just didn’t care.
I'm sharing this with everyone I know. In every country I know. I feel others have the right to know how a woman who HAD applied in the beginning feels about the treatment given by the contest. Because - Let's be honest once again. If you'll do it to us... You'll do it to them.
