[SPQR] Avatars & eReligion.

Dan 1,880, 10:07 Published in USA ZDA s strani Dio Makso


Citizens of the eUSA,

Would you like some prelude? Perhaps some drama and war?
~ Just a few things to set the mood, if you are so inclined. ^_~

Recently you might have seen SPQR in the news and on the forums.
You might also have seen a lot of new avatars making the rounds.

I'd like to open this up to everyone. This movement is about pulling together all of our warring factions to empower our nation. I don't care which party, unit, faction, etc, and I do not intend to ask you to leave behind one such group just to join another. The bottom line is simple: if you want 10/10 resources, full bonuses, expansion, fun, etc, then we're on the same page already. Join us.


These are the current primary options:
1. Borders: (a) Paisley Border, (b) Leather Border.
2. Logos: (a) Large Brass Logo, (b) Small Brass Logo, (c) SupremacyLogo.
3. Overlays: (a) Avatar Over Frame, (b) Avatar Inside Frame, (c) Avatar Through Frame.

Examples:

1. Paisley Border, Large Brass Logo, Avatar Over Frame.

2. Paisley Border, Small Brass Logo, Avatar Over Frame.

3. Paisley Border, Supremacy Logo, Avatar Over Frame.

4. Paisley Border, Supremacy Logo, Avatar Through Frame.

5. Leather Border, Small Brass Logo, Avatar Through Frame.

Some pictures do not have backgrounds which translate well. If you have this kind of picture in mind, provide separate pictures for the avatar and the background, we can make that work as well.

Example:

1. Source Avatar Picture.

2. Source Background Picture.

3. Final SPQR Avatar.

These are some additional options to personalize it:
1. Logo Placement: specify another corner/location.
2. Party/MU Icons: provide icon and specify placement.

Examples:



If you want to keep your military border and add the SPQR logo:
1. Logo Placement: specify the corner/location.
2. Logo Size: specify if size should be fit/modified for location.
3. Frame Placement: specify if frame should only be on one side.

Examples:




If you think of any other personalization options you would like, we can work with you to make it work.

If you are Oblige, insist on purple to try and look regal and end up looking silly. Personally I like Obligesince I have been working with him the past weeks... but dear Dio that picture is garish. It's alsmost as silly as that article ilphen wrote recently. Almost. At least ilphen has solid visual style with his avatars and media graphics.

I digress.


I'd like to take a moment to quote Gnilraps:
They are not asking you to leave your party.
They are not asking you to abandon your independence.
They are not asking you to submit to any god or person.

They simply want your agreement that the only true threat to our sovereignty is the one attempting to seize it from within.

SPQR historically was a tenuous balance of factions which had no particular love for one another, but who recognized that the survival of Roma was a duty which bound them in purpose.

(e)SPQR now must also become a tenuous balance of factions which need no particular love for one another (when was the last time you saw Oblige and Inwegen agree about ANYTHING!?!?), but who must recognize that by unifying our number, we so vastly outsource our wretched enemy that a new day will soon dawn. And in the Nova Roma, eRepublik will once again be the fun game which bound us together in the first place.




Gnilraps said it true. Frankly, he saved me from writing that article. I'm glad it came from someone who was an early doubter on the outside. It best highlights the point of all this.

Some folks object to the eReligion aspect. I say this is not orthodox Dioism, this is a different movement, as Theocracy was a different movement. Want to join the Pantheon? Change your name. Become a Dio Eraclea, a Dio Killing Time, a Dio Maximus, a Dio Jazar, etc. I'd personally be mightily amused if we become blessed with a Dio Reagan.

If you do not like following a god, become a god, or ignore all the gods.

If you want to avoid the Dio and eReligion aspect, focus on the civics and potential for union of adversaries presented by SPQR. This is a nationalist movement, not intended to weaken any party or unit, instead intended to bring all of us together to return our nation to prominence.


Our lead graphics designer for SPQR is snake dr.
~ He is not part of the movement personally; he's just awesome.
Our IRC channel is #SPQR.

If you want an avatar, send a message to snake and/or me. Send us hyperlinks for the picture(s) and icon(s) necessary for your picture. You can also find us on IRC, if we are online when you are.
1. Simple Way: Send a pic, name the border, logo, and overlay style.
2. Complex Way: If you any of the more complex options, no problem. Send us links, tell us your idea.

Is there really any warring between USWP, AMP, WTP, and Feds? Ya'll seem to get along pretty well. You get in a little circle around election time and the guy who comes first gets the "Unity" tag. That sound about right? You guys aren't at war. You're certainly not at war with us "6th parties" as most of us don't care enough to join your club.

The only faction you seem to be at war with is AFA. Is this an invitation for them to be a part of your club and to share an equal role?

If a dove flew with an olive branch across the great divide
Good fruit is not the thing that's sought and so would be cast aside
Peace is not his goal, nor gold, nor even sweet liberty
Power o'er all, was all, is all, and all it shall ever be

Agreed, especially since Candor expressed a desire to involve the AFA in a 'round table' and got called a traitor for his effort; after all the call is for 'Unity' across party lines....

We have been around maybe almost two weeks. Publius and the other guys figured a slow build strategy was better. Me, I'm always for going big from the beginning, but I'm just one citizen. : )

Yes, there is. The complete and utter hostility between some of them while working on ATO was hard to solve. The JCS vs Anti-JCS split is also still an open wound. The folks friendly with and opposed to Pfeiffer are also a rough area. The sixth parties feel marginalized, the big parties feel the small parties are trivial. The divisions in the eUSA are many and prolific. We need to move past them.

As far as the AFA, I say yes. I like a lot of the people in the AFA. Some I don't, but that is true everywhere. I think I'll commit treason and say a AFA CP month might be ok. I voted for FG in the last election though because I thought she was best. Anyway, I want 10/10 bonuses, more fluid immigration, etc. The AFA and SPQR both want resources and expansion. There is much common ground. I don't think AFA can ever be reconciled with the core eUS community with RGR at the helm due to past history, but I think over time the immigrant base in the AFA must be integrated and accepted as iNCi was integrated and accepted. It is what it is.

Please see above. Keep in mind, I don't run SPQR. I'm just one citizen with some crazy ideas. The main man behind SPQR is Publius, but the citizenry involved call the shots. My views on the AFA are a minority, fortunately or unfortunately. I have made avatars for the AFA who asked.

Simulare Dan 1,881, 12:27

Understood Max. But, remember that the hostility is because people have different opinions about how things should operate. Sure, we can all be civil, that's a noble goal, but, we aren't going to always agree. If there is still hostility between JCS and Anti-JCS, there must be a reason. Has anyone bothered to try to resolve that problem in a meaningful way? And by meaningful I don't mean telling them that they must abandon their opinions and drink the kool-aide.

People have to be entitled to their opinions. People who are pro- or anti- JCS, Pfeiffer, Dio, Ajay, bonuses, war, taxes, have to feel that their voices matter. How will you deal with those differences? At what point will those differences result in mutes, kicks, or bans? And since we're all eAmericans, even the ones with whom you mist vehemently disagree, doesn't the ideal of "The people and the senate" include them as well?

You can't have it both ways. You can't say,"all eAmericans are equal - unless otherwise noted" We have a problem, we all know it. We won't solve it with force or numbers. People will always disagree and opinions are hard if not impossible to change. Accepting those disagreements and not assuming that anyone who happens to not share your opinions is either a fool, an idiot, or a PTO.
