[DoD] Version 2.0: Now with votes!!

Day 1,912, 15:41 Published in USA USA by Department of Citizen Orders

Patriotic Americans o/,

We are now roughly a week into John Killah’s POTUS term, and a lot has happened in the DoD since Killah first took office on February 5th, 2013.

The first issue of the term arose when a few loyal Americans began complaining about the fact that American administrators seemed to be squandering their money on their own articles, even as the DoD articles suffered and hardly managed 50 votes.

Before I begin on the solution, let me just say that I apologize if any of you felt that the American DoD was not being given sufficient funds to communicate with the American people. These are difficult times, and thus it’s difficult to muster enough votes for DoD articles, as DoD funds are severely limited by decreasing revenue.

I’m positive that no American administrator intentionally aimed to keep the DoD articles out of the t5, merely it’s simply a lack of funds in the American budget.

That being said, I’m very excited to announce that Killah’s POTUS Cabinet has raised enough funds among us to buy 650 votes for each DoD article, and, as a result, they will always be in the top five for the remainder of Killah's term!

Thanks to the donators that made this possible!

Useless way to waste money.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,912, 17:12

Informing the two-clicker on where to fight is a waste of money?

Jack Lantos

wouldn't they just follow MU orders and not read the article?

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,914, 15:32

No...not necessarily...

1. How do you think the MUs get their orders? Magic?
2. Captains are sometimes inactive, this newspaper is not.
3. People not in the USAF or any MU need to find their orders somewhere

Mister Y
Mister Y Day 1,914, 16:47

2. I usually found old orders and wars already over in this newspaper. I hope in future it will be well updated.
3. People not in USAF are in JCS, so there are other orders.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,914, 17:00

2. Hasn't been that un-updated for at least a few months. So your counterpoint might have applied a few months ago, but not now.
3. There are people that are not in the USAF, or JCS.

Firstly, I appreciate that the intentions of this policy are good, I'm not here to provoke sarcasm.

Active MUs intentionally go to this DoD newspaper in the "battle orders" category, or even if captains are inactive the MU priorities will take over and set orders automatically. My concern was that in either case the two-clicker will generally never read any articles, and just follow the very apparent MU orders to get their daily rewards.

On the other hand, for important battles it becomes more worthwhile to raise general awareness and encourage more strategic damage at that time. For #3, it might even increase recruitment, but it must be at least considered if you would get more recruitment and other benefits by spending this funding on more supplies.

What do I care for really...

It's not like it's my MU who's gonna experience funding cut so that articles can be voted high. I hope you won't cut the supplies of the lower branch of the USAF because you're running dry.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,912, 18:15

The vote buying is privately funded. No branches will be cut as a result of this vote decision.

Zoli Day 1,912, 17:56

I will contribute with 500 Usd. To who should I transfer the funds?

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,912, 18:16

Please send the USD to me if you'd like to make a donation! Thanks! 😃

Zoli Day 1,912, 18:17

You have successfully donated 500 USD. This amount will appear shortly in the citizen account.

And fight in Northern Taiwan

PeVall Day 1,912, 18:36

Couldn't this have been merged with an actual article with orders? Seems a waste of cash to vote this up tbh. But I like they will be in the top 5 now.

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,912, 19:07

No, this was a mandated update article. Plus, I used my personal cash to vote this article and not any funds from the DoD Vote-buying fund.

Iamnameless Day 1,912, 19:40

I'll vote em for free.

Good job, I am glad you are seeing the logic in top 5 dod orders.

The MU's receiving government funding should be having every member that receives supplies put a vote on these. If this was done no funds would be needed from anyone.

Oblige Day 1,913, 11:01

I love how the people complaining about the money spent on votes are the same people that complain about the lack of DoD orders.

Never change hypocrites. Never change.

Bia Pandora

No complaint here as long as it's private funds. Just experienced advise.

Duncan Crowe

AFA member trolling on a eUSA article. Nothing new, probably shouldn't even respond. But, in response to your point, I USED MY OWN MONEY TO VOTE THIS ARTICLE.

Hanibal LA
Hanibal LA Day 1,914, 15:35

you are not only elitist doing this. what about rest of articles and newspapers. i'm not talking about Gov's newspaper, but peronal ones. We all know lot of oney going on voting these articles...and nobody have that much money here...only explaination, you use eUSA citizens money...

Duncan Crowe
Duncan Crowe Day 1,914, 15:42

wrong again. all of the votes bought for personal articles are paid for by private citizens wealthy enough to afford it. there is no eUSA money being spent on votes, so, please, stop trolling. by now, only the AFA gives your claims any credibility....
