[Artela] The long awaited answer to Glove’s questionnaire

Day 1,988, 14:53 Published in USA USA by Artela

Well, here goes... hope you’re feeling like reading all of this!

Question 1: Why should I vote for you?

Because I have a sexy avatar? More seriously, because I’m experienced, driven, and flexible enough to change with the demands of the game. Plus I want to give everyone some fun. Oh, and I did I mention already that I have a sexy avatar?

Question 2: What are your thought on Romania, is it okay to go to war with them directly, even after all we've been through?

Romania chose to go to TWO. TWO are the enemy! So yeah, if we actually had a border it would be fine - they made that choice, not us. They aren’t friends if they chose to buddy up with Serbia over us!

Question 3: Do you think we should rekindle with Canada, if not, why?

Well, first off, Canada has to actually exist instead of being part of Greater Spain 😛

However, if they were to get back on the map in a big way, they need to prove themselves to America and not be in some other silly alliance etc. Besides, there are good bonuses to be had there. Just sayin’

Question 4: Do you accept Dio as your one and only God Emperor?

Indeed I do.

Question 5: If you could bang any eRep chick, who would it be?

Beachbunny - there’s already chemistry there

Question 6: Who posed a greater evil in their prime, the USWP or S.E.E.S?

S.E.E.S, no, USWP... no, S.E.E.S.... no, question too difficult... self destruct enabled!

Question 7: What will you do for D2 fighters such as myself?

Try to improve the bonuses to increase the weapons available through MU communes, and try to improve things in USAF for D2 fighters who want to fight there. Yeah, boring answer is boring, but what ya gonna do when options in this game are so limiting what with the lack of an economy an’ all. And you’re only D2?!

Question 8: Will you promise me a direct war, I grow rather tired of training wars and neutrality?

We are *all* tired of training wars and no direct wars. However I’m not going to make a promise I can’t guarantee to keep, so although I want to direct war, it doe still rely a bit on our alliance and suitable targets... unless of course TWO decide to take the decision out of our hands, at which point “Yay - direct war” 😉

Question 9: Will you let Pfeiffer in your cabinet, if not, why?

He’s already CIA, and that’s a position that traditionally rolls from one administration to another. I see no reason to rock that boat as long as CIA keeps doing their job properly.

Question 10: What are your thoughts on Ronald Gipper Reagan?

I try not to think about him, thanks. But when I do it’s usually in terms of “why haven’t you given up already?” and “it’s a nice day, why don’t you just go take a very long walk off a very short jetty?”

Question 11: How would you envision a world with an active Max Mcfarland II, a Josh Frost, and a Glove?

Could be quite fun, well, apart from the Glove part 😛

Question 12: Who was your most favorite eUSA president, why?

Without doubt, Cerb. He was a really good president, hardworking, talented, approachable and fun. My idea of what a president should be.

Question 13: What have you done within the last 30 days of value?

Does filling out this questionnaire count? (Losing the will to live about now by the way - this is one long ass questionnaire!). Anyway, during Vanek’s presidency I’ve attended some CoT meetings (do you know how dull those are? I need a gold star for volunteering on that one!) and done some advising on milstuffs, and have also done a bunch of party publicity work and donated a bunch of stuff to both party and country player support programs. Also kicked ass in a few battles. You know, the usual.

Question: 14: What do you consider your most monumental achievement here?

Ah, that would be successfully defending London while I was still a redcoat, but then defecting to eUSA (still the best decision I ever made, because eUSA still rocks) and helping Eden and eUSA and assorted allies to wipe London for the first time. Was kinda fun and very cool.

Question 15: Who would you reach out to in foreign affairs? Where do you see CoT going and do you think we really have a place in it? If so, provide examples of CoT and USA prideful moments/benefits.

Some CoT members have assisted with ATO efforts, and all in all this alliance has been better than the last several have worked out. As to outreach - we have to keep the hand of friendship extended to those wishing to leave Eden and keep them onside, even if they don’t want to look toward CoT, we should at least be able to foster good relations and friendships just like we have with some other long term allies.

Question 16: What are your strengths and weaknesses?

Biggest strength is my ability to read most situations quickly and respond just as quickly when dealing with diplomatic affairs. The ability to make myself understood in a few different languages also helps there, although I still won’t be learning Macedonian! Biggest weakness would probably be that I don't always make the right call, but I'd rather be wrong occasionally than not take some needed risks - safe is boring for everyone, and safe takes too long when things take so little time to change in this game.

Question 17: Will you join my harem?


Question 18: What are your thoughts on the JCS?

They chose their own path. There are some good people in there though that I get on well with, and in the days of so many disparate independent MUs I don’t think they are that much different from many other military organizations.

Question 19: If you could change one thing in eRep history, what would it be?

In my own personal history it would be where I decided to be eBorn. If only I’d realized how much more awesome eUSA was than eUK from the start... isn’t hindsight a marvellous beast!

Question 20: How many times have you watched Fight Club?


Question 21: What did you think of this video?

I lolled. I mean seriously lolled. Out loud! Very Loudly!

Question 22: Am got meme?

*slaps* Glove. Language!

Question 23: Do you think we should continue "Unity" Elections, if so, for how long and why?

I think Unity elections suck and should be got rid of as soon as we are sure it wouldn’t hand the place over to RGR or the Serbs.

Question 24: Where did TERRA go wrong? How can we avoid this in COT?

TERRA suffered from infighting, various CPs not getting on with various other CPs and making rash and stupid decisions. CoT so far looks more promising because of the 100% consensus on decisions and the long trial memberships to make sure everyone is happy.

Question 25: Will you give us a purpose? What do you envision for the eUSA?

eUSA is awesome, but it could be even more awesome. People need some fun in their eLives. People need some wars in their eLives. If at all possible I will try to bring these things to the people of eAmerica.

The tl;dr answer to “Why Artela”

Strong eMilitary Background

Strong Foreign Affairs Background

Strong Alliances Background

Strong Cabinet, a team full of awesome

Let’s Have some Fun!

All the best

"Question 20: How many times have you watched Fight Club?


Disgraceful. Especially since you used a Fight Club image in your article. x_X
It isn't hard. Heck, I'll buy you the dvd, or pay for a month of Netflix.
Kultural Illiteracy is a crime. At least, it should be. ;_;


Artela Day 1,988, 23:45

It's never appealed, but I will try to rectify the situation. At least I watched Top Gun more than once to compensate

Tyrannocopters Day 1,989, 01:09

We're not allowed to talk about fight club max, you've broken the rule.

Prepare to be made into soap, I'll be polite and let you pick the scent.

Once a Pfeiffer puppet, always a Pfeiffer puppet...

The other answers seem fine by me 🙂

Glove just broke the first rule of fight club, he talked about fight club. (question 20)

I think the only avenue of response is to be made into soap.

Of the 3 candidates I have seen answer these questions so far (others being Tenshibo and Synesi ), I find your answers to be the most unifying, reasonable, and honest.

If you get the nomination, I'll vote for you.

Otherwise, I'm goin' fishin' on Election day.
