I'm missing PK representation under major parties. No psychopathic representation?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 18:57, 1 June 2010 (BST)

well, last time, PKers pretty much dominated the Humanitive party, because Karloth Vois was their representative, so I think they probably fall in to that. We could always open up a third party, but I don't really see any point.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:59, 1 June 2010 (BST)
Most likely it'll be a candidate from Soulfantasy.net versus a candidate from Barhah.com. With Mis running (as he said he would), he would be a likely brainstock candidate. (I think he uses brainstock.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 21:15, 1 June 2010 (BST)
I haven't used Brainstock in a while, though I drift in and out of it and Red Rum's site. I offer to run for the Humanitive Party. I just add myself there, right? Nothing to be done! 14:01, 2 June 2010 (BST)
Sure, go for it. Add text, pictures, endorsements, bribes... Actually, scratch the last one; that should probably be a secret.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:56, 2 June 2010 (BST)

Questions

I'm kind of confused how this election works, first off when does it start? Second, if you want to run do you just edit your name into the election page? --Mindlessidiots 16:31, 8 June 2010 (BST)

Yeah, just shove your name in a header on the page, and put a statement under it. As for dates, we haven't sorted them out yet.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 16:33, 8 June 2010 (BST)

Thanks man --Mindlessidiots 16:55, 8 June 2010 (BST)

Misanthropy

You're sure your under the right header?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 19:29, 2 June 2010 (BST)
110% certain. I shall lead humanity in a new direction. Nothing to be done! 19:30, 2 June 2010 (BST)
And that direction would be the ninth circle of hell? Sounds fun, do I get to stuff pineapples up people's ass? Anyway, good luck with your campaign. --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 19:39, 2 June 2010 (BST)

Yonnua Koponen

Can I be your running mate?--Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 19:37, 2 June 2010 (BST)
Well, MrSuggestor was here first, but since he has no corporeal form, and he was brutally murdered five years ago, you can be my real running mate.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 19:41, 2 June 2010 (BST)
Yayz! --Umbrella-White.pngThadeous OakleyUmbrella-White.png 19:45, 2 June 2010 (BST)

The Blob

The Chilean Blob hereby gives notice he is considering running for Mayor of Malton. He's already been a savior, a god, a judge and a jury...why not add Mayor to his vast array of titles? Who better than the gelatinous master to rule over Malton's diverse population base? --Dr summeroff 01:19, 3 June 2010 (BST)

Don't just mention yourself, add yourself to the list! --VVV RPGMBCWS 03:56, 3 June 2010 (BST)

Oidar

I, Oidar, shall be running as the leader of the Maltonian Separatist Party. Fear me us, for I am we are coming, to free the Glorious City of foreign oppression. Oidar 12:00, 3 June 2010 (BST)

MORE IMAGES

An awesome part of the last election was everyone had their hilarious election campaign poster. Let's get some going guys! I made one for my current first voting choice, Chilean Blob. Hopefully you can all do better. --

16:27, 3 June 2010 (BST)

Done, quality be damned. Oidar 17:13, 3 June 2010 (BST)
Wow, page getting messy. I advise the use of tables. Nothing to be done! 18:01, 3 June 2010 (BST)
I've used several linebreaks. Nobody edit the Example party section or things will go crazy.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:04, 3 June 2010 (BST)

WOW. I wake up to find like 10 hilarious images! Good work! Though It's all now hugely out of place, as Mis said, Yonn do you want to re-do all of those with their own table that just has a simple black border or something (which they can change later)? --

BLOB

Fixed the external link so it appears to be a UDwiki link. Revert if unsatisfied.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 18:11, 3 June 2010 (BST)

The Thermonuclear Party

Its campaign poster is a bit on the... phallic side, I think. And also needs moar pix of cowboys riding on rockets. -- Spiderzed 22:07, 3 June 2010 (BST)

IF YOU LIKE PENISII AND EXPLOSIONII, SUPPORT THE THERMONUCLEAR PARTY!!!! (Consider this an official endorsement). :D:D:D --Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:48, 3 June 2010 (BST)
Thank you. :) I'll get a copy of that pic on my poster ASAP. Better dead than Red! --Sam 2334 23:20, 3 June 2010 (BST)
...and voila. I had a bit of problem with accidentally uploading the wrong file and stuff, but no biggie. Now all we do is wait for the election. --Sam 2334 23:34, 3 June 2010 (BST)
Now I feel an urge to create a template about trenchies and their imaginary not-even-in-the-game super weapons around that pic. -- Spiderzed 23:38, 3 June 2010 (BST)
Feel free. Go ahead. Just to clarify, though, I'm not much of a trenchcoater--at least, back when I was one, I didn't do too well and eventually quit to become a (mostly) normal, independent survivor. Still, ya gotta admit, giant explosions are great! --Sam 2334 01:58, 4 June 2010 (BST)

Apathy Party

Plez stup wit messing with my imges images, dude. It not funny. Plez somone help me with tech-stuff, which I cannot handle to due being a complete and utter moron. Oidar 06:44, 4 June 2010 (BST)

Whatever. ~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 06:52, 4 June 2010 (BST)

Details

What constitues a major and minor party and what voting system is being used (i'm assuming first past the post)? Moonie Talk | Testimonials 14:19, 4 June 2010 (BST)

Major parties are just Zombiecratic and Humanative. Voting system doesn't really apply, because we aren't electing a house, we're electing one person.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 14:24, 4 June 2010 (BST)
But at current there seem to be three major parties: Zombiecratic, Humanative, and Barhah. Should barhah not be a minor party then? Moonie Talk | Testimonials 14:49, 4 June 2010 (BST)
You guys are missing a heading. "Higher Parties". For the Blob is the beginning, the middle and the end. His glory reaches into the highest, furthest reaches of the cosmos and also into your very souls. His glory diffuses over all of Malton like a great warm blanket. Zombies, Survivors, Pkers and all those in between can all find a place within the great folds of his blobular flesh. As the designated spokesman for the Great Blob, It is my duty to inform the electoral organizers that the Blob is displeased to be lumped into the "Minor Parties" category alongside such undistinguished and irrelevant candidates. My friends, his glory is tarnished, his good name tainted by being in the company of "The Thermonuclear Party", "The Apapthy Party"....and a zealot like Oidar! Please correct this injustice immediately. --Dr summeroff 15:11, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Barhah should not be a major party, but I'm trying to work out if Jorm is trying to run as a candidate for Zombiecratic or as his own party. Meanwhile, considering you placed yourselves in the minor parties category, you may stay where you are.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 15:31, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Don't you put that hate on the Blob Mr.Kopenen! Don't you put that hate on him. The Blob has already admonished the priest responsible for this grievous error. Now please place the blob in the position of prominence one such as he deserves. --Dr summeroff 15:48, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Edit history shows barhah party was added second to the actual candidature thus i'd assume a safer assumption is his own party. Moonie Talk | Testimonials 15:37, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Barhah party is definitely a stand alone. Jorm is running on a simple policy: murder. Accept no appeasers, AMBRAHZ BARHAH! -- Bisfan 23:09, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Whoa, summeroff, don't disparage the proud Thermonuclear Party! Don't you wish that YOU could blast a suburb, or even Malton itself, all to pieces? It's a perfect solution for the nasty zombie problem--just nuke every suburb that isn't "green," and mop up the ones that survive. Or, if you're a pker/death cultist/combat revived ex-zombie, nuke every green suburb on the map and watch the mushroom clouds appear one by one! Imagine the number of dead bodies! Even if the radiation does not permanently incapacitate players, the prestige of owning your very own nuclear missile would more than make up for that! And if nobody votes for us, we'll just be remembered as crazed fanatics who wanted to destroy Malton. Oh well. --Sam 2334 19:19, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Nuclear weapons dropping is akin to a flea humping an elephant next to the awesome power of the Mighty Blob. :) --Dr summeroff 21:35, 4 June 2010 (BST)
Y'all care about this way too much. :/ ~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 22:09, 4 June 2010 (BST)
That reminds me. Red, why have you bastardised your sig?--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:10, 4 June 2010 (BST)
I dunno, it seemed like a good idea. After the election I might change it back. Maybe. ~ Red Hawk One Talk | space for lease 22:18, 4 June 2010 (BST)
But why is it blue? Your name is "Red" Hawk, so surely it should be red. >:| <= Grumpy face.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:12, 4 June 2010 (BST)
But it's purple. Huh.gif Nothing to be done! 23:20, 4 June 2010 (BST)

Late entry to discussion: Zealot? Indeed. Just like the freedom fighters of Judaea in ancient times, I will strike at the enemies of the Glorious City without any mercy! Vote Oidar, vote future. Oidar 18:25, 5 June 2010 (BST)

Sage Carr

I hereby add myself to the list to run for mayor. Hurray!

-- Sage|Carr Cobra 14:47, 4 June 2010 (BST)

If you support the brave soldiers that defend America from those blasted Commies trying to contaminate our precious bodily fluids, you will receive a free cookie. That is all. --Sam 2334 14:30, 5 June 2010 (BST)

Running

Do you have to be some special person to run? I assume just anyone can, but could I just throw my name up? And say I was just some level 15 zombie but wanted to run for the zombiecratic party (since no one else is) could I?.. hypothetically >;3 —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Senergy (talkcontribs) 04:14, June 6, 2010.

Feel free to throw your name up as an extra candidate Moonie Talk | Testimonials 07:48, 6 June 2010 (BST)
if anything I just wanted to put my name up for shits and giggles. but I know some people who wanted to try. --S e n e r g y T 19:22, 6 June 2010 (BST)
Pff, go for it. Just shove your name in a header under Kylestyle and people can vote for you in the primaries if they want. You never know, you could be mayor one day.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 22:03, 6 June 2010 (BST)
Fuck yes, watch me win. --S e n e r g y T 01:21, 7 June 2010 (BST)
Alphabetical order please :3 Moonie Talk | Testimonials 01:59, 7 June 2010 (BST)
:( really? you'll do that to me? the underdog? --S e n e r g y T 02:02, 7 June 2010 (BST)
Who says it has to be alphabetic anyway --S e n e r g y T 02:10, 7 June 2010 (BST)
It was reflected in the ruling of the arbitration, tbh i don't have a problem with you going first but just want to keep it fair and balanced across the board, alphabetising on candidate name is impartial, acceptable? Moonie Talk | Testimonials 02:24, 7 June 2010 (BST)
<3 --S e n e r g y T 02:31, 7 June 2010 (BST)
Dude, just set yourself wherever you want. This major/minor/returning parties bullshit is just that: bullshit designed to give some people an unfair advantage. Stick yourself wherever you want and when some douche gets his panties in a twist just tell them I said you could do it and then let them ban me.--Jorm 03:15, 7 June 2010 (BST)
You know that with the sheer amount of pettiness you've shown over this whole thing, you've lost the respect of a lot of people who might actually have voted for you? Nothing to be done! 03:30, 7 June 2010 (BST)
Or have gained, this whole thing is a joke and the majority parties are bs, and he's showing not to take it seriously. I admire that actually --S e n e r g y T 03:36, 7 June 2010 (BST)
Joke! Joke! What Speaketh thou! Surely you know this is of the most serious business! Heresy! Blaspheme! Someone please escort this Judas out of the room.--Dr summeroff 16:11, 9 June 2010 (BST)
What majority parties? They were scrapped as part of the arbitration as well as requiring that everything be alphabetised... Moonie Talk | Testimonials 05:09, 7 June 2010 (BST)

Oh, by the way

We have absolutely no dates for this election in the slightest. We should probably think of something.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:03, 8 June 2010 (BST)

I suggest Sunday the 13th--Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 00:13, 8 June 2010 (BST)
Too soon. We need primaries for the two parties which may have multiple candidates, and then the real election, probably a week later.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:24, 8 June 2010 (BST)
I suggest no primaries, just do it independently. The whole reason for major/multi person parties was pretty well scrapped with the arby, i have absolutely no idea why it remains like this and the only way i can see it improving is if listing by parties is scrapped altogether and instead it's all alphabetised on candidate name Moonie Talk | Kyle For Mayor 00:53, 8 June 2010 (BST)
How about July 26? -- User:Jordan Salafack » JS talk contribs » 10:23, 8 June 2010 (BST)
I'm pretty sure Jorm tried to remove all "major" and "minor" and gof or alphabetised, I agree with him, I think it should be done that way. -- 10:27, 8 June 2010 (BST)
I think it should have been left as major/minor + primaries or alphabetised, what it is now is just crap, seeing there seemed to be no real interest in multiple candidates scrap them Moonie Talk | Kyle For Mayor 13:03, 8 June 2010 (BST)
Speak for yourself. I totally have a date. ;) ᚱᛁᚹᛖᚾ 12:09, 8 June 2010 (BST)
I see no reason to scrap the idea of parties, just because holy shit there's only one primary what're we gonna do. Listing by party is half the charm, and alphabetising the parties is perfectly fair. If you want to just alphabetise all of them at once, go ahead. Nothing to be done! 16:16, 8 June 2010 (BST)
I just figured it would be easier listing by candidate as you're voting for candidate not party in the end and i'll wait for more input before changing anything myself Moonie Talk | Kyle For Mayor 23:21, 8 June 2010 (BST)
Nuke 'em all and let God decide! Is it really that difficult? As for a date, I suggest July 16, the anniversary of our country's first nuclear explosion. Or, if not, June 17, when the Chinese detonated their first bomb. I'd prefer the former, but both are acceptable. --Sam 2334 23:24, 9 June 2010 (BST)
July 16th for you. October 3rd for myself and Malton. Assumably it hasn't happened for Mis' country yet, and I have no idea where Moonie is from.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:31, 9 June 2010 (BST)
Where does Mis' come from then? --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 23:41, 9 June 2010 (BST)
To my understanding, he is from the Republic of Ireland.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 23:46, 9 June 2010 (BST)
Mis is from the north. He lives in Belfast. Nothing to be done! 00:26, 10 June 2010 (BST)
Really? Well then you have loads of nuclear weapons. Well, the UK as a whole does, so I assume they give some to N. Ireland.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:31, 10 June 2010 (BST)
Plus, you don't have to live in the Republic to live in the republic.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 00:32, 10 June 2010 (BST)
The UK's entire stockpile is located in Scotland and Scotland alone. They outsourced everything to submarines, all of which are based at Faslane (HMNB Clyde). Next time someone mention's England's stockpile of nuclear arms you can securely say there's no such thing. Also this bloody thing needs a start date. Say 15th for primaries (a week) and 22nd for the election (two weeks)? Nothing to be done! 03:11, 12 June 2010 (BST)
How does the voting process work? In my thermonuclear fervor, I seem to have forgotten most of my political training. --Sam 2334 16:25, 14 June 2010 (BST)
Create subpages of this page with a ballot form similar to that used on A/BP and link to them on the page here, the community portal, and wiki news. That's what I'd suggest. Nothing to be done! 16:27, 14 June 2010 (BST)

Hm...

I'm a rather undecided voter, so I'm gonna make this a whole lot easier for the candidates. The first candidate who says "Mudkipz" will get my vote. =) --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs (status:Mudkip!) 00:33, 10 June 2010 (BST)
