[CP] Vote Buying Is Silly

Day 1,801, 15:00 Published in United Kingdom United Kingdom by Talon Karrde

My Friends,

It’s been a mostly quiet couple of days, though there are a few things I need to bring to your attention today.

As I said last time, I’m going to steal somebody else’s style for these announcements, simply because I’ve always thought it’s the most simple and easy to understand; so thanks to Addy Lawrence for this!


Did you know, oh young players, that you can receive free health every day, courtesy of the NHS? Simply send a private message to Blue and Evil and he’ll sign you up! If you want more info on it and how it works, he’s your port of call. The latest NHS article can be found HERE.


More articles released for you to read. Some by Beta: HERE, and HERE. Be sure to read, vote, subscribe and comment on those articles!

The latest MoD orders article is HERE - well worth a read.

The MoF has released its halfway report HERE too, so make sure you read that and vote it for coverage!

I also wrote one about the forums and GMod apps HERE.


It is the opinion of this government that the level of vote buying for articles in the country is getting silly now, and is actually hindering the running of the country as MoD orders and CP updates don’t get the coverage they ought to- surely we can all agree that informing the public is a worthy goal.

In protest I’m paying for max votes for this article out of my own pocket. Thanks guys.


Cabinet has continued to do pretty well. The halfway point of term is often the time at which things start to slip as people become complacent. My job over the next few days is to make sure that doesn’t happen, and that we finish the term strongly.

If you think my ministers should be doing something they aren’t at the moment, please do get in contact- all input is appreciated!


The MoD would like me to thank ALL UK CITIZENS that attended Tuesday’s strike, and I can confirm that more of these will be happening soon- unless otherwise stated the next one will be on Sunday 28th October at 8pm BST (12:00 erep time) on the #MoD channel. MU leaders, make sure you’re informing your troops when these are so they can come and receive the free weapons, and partake of our great military community!

We’re currently in the middle of a discussion HERE about what to do with MoD orders in the future, so if this area interests you be sure to contribute.


As I mentioned a couple of days ago, we do have options for war after the congress elections. In the next couple of days we’ll start one of these up, and all get the nice NE and TP bonuses we like.

Nice and simple 🙂

That’s it for today, stay tuned for more announcements in the future.

I do like the more information where we need to fight. It can give our soldiers more motivation.

Long live the Queen (or our government)!

Alphabethis Day 1,802, 08:18

hahaha, vote buying is bad but Talon does it,... THIS IS TUP ETHICS, over and over again.
You remind me Goku, the outlaw.

Alphabethis Day 1,802, 08:20

I'm only buying votes because my freedom of speech is so brutally curtailed with forum/irc bans, I have to get my voice out there somehow.

Thanks to Talon for trying to get rid of my forum bans, unfortunatly Dan Moir decided to reban me even though I posted nothing in the channels I was unbanned from!?

Alphabethis Day 1,802, 12:59

Goku, your silence is outrageous too, haven't you realised that?

Thanks to Talon for trying to get rid of my forum bans, unfortunately Dan Moir decided to reban me even though I posted nothing in the channels I was unbanned from!

At least he tried...and I'm sure Dan was only doing it to protect the country/children/economy/NHS/BEF/Marketplace etc etc and not out of some petty vendetta or power trip that he and a few others seem to have.

HKGgodblessme Day 1,802, 20:36

wait... what?
so can u give me money because i just vote XP?

Danie Fox

Goku has a permanent ban from the forums for leaking, stealing, multiple accounts etc. That hasn't changed, why should he have it removed? Nobody is stopping people voting his articles legitimately, he doesn't have to buy votes in the media.
