[PTO Alert] Request for action to be taken

Day 1,838, 21:13 Published in Australia Australia by Mr Crumpets

At 21:00 on Day 1,838 eRepublik Time, I request that action be taken against a possible PTO Threat from the PTOed Australian Independent Party.

At the moment four of the top five parties have nominated a candidate for the Country President election in a few days time.

With a maximum of 5 spots available on the ballot, currently the last spot is taken up by the 6th placed Australian Revolutionary Party (who have nominated Molly Jo).

However, this looks likely to change with the PTOed Australian Independent Party (no candidate yet, but will do something at the last minute) just one vote behind them... and seemingly may take the last spot on the ballot.

I humbly suggest the powers that be, look at taking the following action...

1. Suggest to the Australian Parliamentary Party that they run a 'blocking candidate'. This would have all top 5 parties fielding a candidate and require the PTOers to find another 4 votes to reach the top 5.

2. Request that some members of the KHMC move to the 5th placed party, the Green and Gold Party to sure up our spot and block the PTOed Australian Independent Party from being able to field a candidate.

The 'blocking candidate' move from the APP is a game mechanics move.

That is, the APP should feel free to endorse TJ Norton or iRule777 in a newspaper article, forum post and email to members, but they should not use the eRepublik endorse button on them, as their own parties have nominated them and it would open up a spot for the PTOers.

I await for a Government Article swinging this or a similar plan into action.

Mr Crumpets
Founder of the Green and Gold Party

This is just another plot to try and take down the mighty KHMC ...

So you think you can rig the elections by forcing people to kick the AI out of the top 5?
Shameful display by you elitists, trying to troll the independents out of the country.

Henry, we suggested the KHMC because your around 20 members clear from 2nd spot. Otherwise ANP (who have 50 odd members) could help, or the other way, ARP who are out of the Top 5, should help top us up until the CP elections ballot closes.

This is superb. First Wingfield accuses me and IRule with interfering with political parties during the ATO Council, supported by Detroit and Mr Crumpets - and now we're being asked for help? Wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that the GGP want to win? Yeah good sport but that play needs work for being a bit too transparent. Nice try though.

TJ... our argument in the congress elections is that you called the GGP a PTO when we were not.

Here, for the CP elections, it's been established that the AIP with Stadler (or whatever his name is) is a PTOer.

Are you saying TJ that you're happy to allow the AIP to sneak up, take fifth spot and a place on the ballot?

Plus let's be honest, whether I like it or not, you're going to win the CP election. If by miracle the GGP won, we'd probably get impeached anyway.

Congratulations on your abuse of power to try and assassinate an Australian party. With friends like you who needs enemies.

The instructions (suggestion) was to join the GGP.

By the way, got your chat log and before and after shots of you guys joining the ARP.

Looks like you guys are actually the PTOers of eAustralia.

The CP election is wide open there are well supported candidates throughout and it's going to come down to what the minor candidates (or 'blockers' as they haven't released much) do to affect the result.

I can't imagine what your strategy does other than replace one party with another. We on the ATO effort encouraged the collective efforts of all party leaders - your leader at the time didn't want GGP involved. I said many times ATO central didn't get into party politics. GGP made their choice.

ARP are 5th spot. It's only logical to join them....

DocterDryMOIST Day 1,838, 22:57

Mr Crunpets stop spamming useless articles just for the hell of it.

EVERYONE already knows the party is PTOed, yet you chosoe to make an article for the hell of it. Everyone is sick of your useless articles clogging the media.

No one is interested in your recommendations either. The experts such as myself will be working to stop any PTO attempts.

Sir_c0nstant Day 1,839, 23:00

It's amazing how petty and sad you guys are. If this is the real eAustralia where removing parties from ballots because of people in said party do something you don't like, fromr quote ACP member"fit and giggles" yes i've seen the logs. I am seriously inclined to change ANP's endorement to the PTO guy just to piss all off you off because seriously you don't deserve to run a country.

What's up your bum, SC?

DocterDryMOIST Day 1,839, 23:05

Sir_c0nstant your problem is that you are listening to people such as Mr Crumpets, when you should know better.

You are overvaluing what he is saying instead of laughing at him and disregarding what he is saying like the 99% of eAustralians.

Also remember, i am the REAL PP of the ANP, you are a placeholder.

DocterDryMOIST Day 1,839, 23:06

Mr Crumpets is just upset that his beloved GGP was a REAL PTO threat due to Whingefield so now he wants to get payback.

Everyone just continue on ignoring him.

This article would be why we have an ATO nominated....

Its just a blatant attempt to get members into a shamed party.

When there is ATO action the CP announces and nominates a third party to run the ATO procedure.

alimilano Day 1,839, 15:29

Mr Crumpets you should know game rules better, erep-wiki for you: "The 2nd day of month is the last day which parties can set their cadidates. So make sure you set your candidate before end of 2nd day!"
