I find myself looking back at my past in eRepublik after reading a few articles looking back at the 'old days' of the game, times when the United States Workers Party was at its peak, and the now great Federalist and American Military Parties were at their birth. I've lived through the founding and life of both of the aforementioned parties, and I've seen everything alongside. I've watched the eUS come back from the brink of destruction and seen us dominate our enemies, only to become great allies just a few months later, I fought to wipe Russia and beat Emerick to a seat of congress with the help of George Armstrong Custer, only to become great allies with Russia not a year later.
tl;dr, I've seen a lot in my time here in the eUS.
Throughout all of this, I've never been much of a powerful player. In my few times in congress, my ideas were usually shot down without much afterthought, my economic presence is enough to keep myself afloat with food and nothing more, and my political position at this point is quite low. This being said, I've always aspired to greater things, I've loyally served for my entire elife, and I've filled countless little positions such as Captain of both the 7th and 8th companies of EZCo, been an ambassador to a few small countries, and had a seat in congress on occasion.
tl;dr I'm not a powerful player, by any means.
Now my time in the game of late has been filled with lost election after lost election, as my party lacks the manpower to support me and I just don't seem to deserve the vote. I suppose it's a fault of my own, but once in a great while it would be nice to win. I'm stuck being a political wash-up with a meaningless title of captain, who just presses a button to follow the DO everyday. I stay here because of the handful of friends I've made that give me a laugh every so often, and for some reason I'm still waiting for someone to finally give me that shot in a higher level position, but it's one I doubt I'll see.
tl;dr My eLife hasn't been as awesome as I'd like.
Now enough of this sob story/rantings of a mad-man, the point of this article is don't box out the new players like I was, I had a great deal of help from people like Paul Proteus and George Armstrong Custer, but in the end eAmerica's 'leadership' just brushed me aside time and time again for various reasons, and in the end you've lost the support of another player because 'he didn't have enough experience,' well if you see, I've gotten the experience, I've gone through congress three times, I've been a captain of one of the best MU's in the world for multiple terms (because that's apparently experience), I've served as an ambassador for Switzerland and Germany, as well as going through the Training Corps and entering the eUS army back in the day. I was one of the first dozen members of the AMP when it was founded. I've fought everyday in the name of this country, I've built up the experience that the 'higher ups' told me I needed to become more involved in the government, yet my applications to positions are still denied, I'm still unable to do anything of real value besides food fight away my days, the only reason I continue to is because I'm bored. Don't make new players go through this like I have, try and let them have a shot with you old-folks.
tl;dr: Let the new guys into the operations of the country, don't tell them they don't have enough experience like what I was told.
Now don't see this as a going away letter (I just returned from a break, you can't get rid of me that easily!), I mean I'm going to continue my fight to better the country, but I really don't want the new players to have to go through what I did, it's incredibly disappointing when you've worked for three years for a goal you realize you won't reach, because the 'oldfags' don't see you fit for a position that I'm confident, I'm proficient enough to hold. Let them in the circle, let them get their feet wet, and let them jump in when the time comes.
An oldfag with no name,
