I have challenged a few of the election-participates, but I hardly got an authentic answer to my question. I ask the three parties/participants to explicate in one way or another what kind of things they would be able to do that the others would not, and why their opinions are more truthful than those of the others. If we elect participant X, then what good will he bring that participant Y will not, and how does he know that?

Thank you.

Mirza, for the last time. It's a game, there are no real powers.

However, certain types of organization my be incentivized depending on who is elected.

Once again, if it is a game, why elect, and why do you take it seriously enough to challenge several voters?

I actually want an answer. You can elect people in games, yes, but you still have to give a reason for why we actually should elect specific people. Why winners out of the blue, especially when they will get quite a lot of notice?

There is a purpose in the fun, is there not? Or are people merely gambling with votes? Do you just pick Mafia Game winners for no reason, or because they actually win through well-playing? If we need a winner in this election game, we should have criteria set for what constitutes a winner.

Actually, since it seems we will have a Christian majority I was tossing around the idea of enforcing Christian beliefs on the site. Starting with forcing all non Christians to convert, leave or be stoned. And then we would move onto non-believers. I'm thinking we should skip the convert or leave and just move right onto stoning. But we first must find someone with no sin so they can throw the first stone.

Second would be changing the name to Jesus.com or something.
