Now that I have your attention (I didnt actually stomp a kitten to death) I have an announcement to make

I recently purchased the political simulation game Democracy 3 (Amazing game btw) and ive been thinking for a bit how DDO would do if DDO collectively discussed what to do, what to change, etc etc if they were put in charge of a major existing country like the US or the UK..... I myself do pretty damn good in the US and France on normal difficulty, however I dont get re-elected in England, and I actually get assassinated in Canada, Australia, and Germany when I tried those countries.

So im putting together a council of people on DDO, who will then basically discuss and argue over how to run a country, what laws to enact, which ones to cancel, etc etc in a forum somewhere to see how DDO does..... Ill simply be the messenger who carries out their orders and relays important information to them when the next turn happens.

I normally would have put this in the politics section or the games section, or maybe even the misc section, but I figured that the main DDO section would be best since more people will see it and it wont get buried under a crapload of spam you would see in other forums.

So if youre interested, sign up below. Im starting out with 6 spots, but Ill go up to 15 or more if a lot of people sign up. I will NOT be one of the people who argue for a decision, im only here to carry out your orders and relay results.

I don't know. I'm a little disappointed that a kitten wasn't stomped to death.

Would you be putting our decisions into the game, or just think of the outcome yourself?

I literally just made a post about Democracy 3, lol. From the hate it generated, I'm glad I know at least one person who also enjoys the game.

The Ima revolutions are the two greatest mass trollings in the history of DDO.

Basically: A bunch of people made multiaccounts called 'imachair' and 'imaimabench' and then basically spammed the living hell out of the forums and other members, and all while waging calls for my execution..... Both lasted a day, and each caused about 16 deaths and $30 million in damage to the site and the city of Miami
