View Full Version : A Roll Call of Sorts
Feb 09, 2009, 12:51 PM
Hi, just trying to get an idea of how many people have visited the DGRG1 Forums. Choosing an option in this poll will not be considered a commitment, just a general idea of your thoughts on this game. We're glad you stopped in.
Choose an option that answers this question to you at this time:
How active are you planning to be in this Civ3 Democracy Game?
1. Very - I'd like to run for office
2. Some - I'm new to this and would like to learn, or maybe I'm not new and just want to be a voting citizen with an occasional post.
3. Hardly - I don't have much time, but plan to lurk until I can participate more
4. Not at all - Just a Lurker

As always time (or lack of it) will be the determining factor.

It will also depend on how fun the game is. If it becomes a micromanaging, let's play the perfect [c3c] game and pulverize the AI then I doubt it'll be much fun. If we try to play with some imaginative constraints then things could get fun.

Hmm, I'm looking at being a casual roll. Perhaps run in an office here and there.
Feb 10, 2009, 09:50 PM
Not sure, hoping to run for office though, Military... as usual :lol:
I'll likely have to brush up on my C3C strategies though...

i'm new here and don't even know how a democracy game works...lol
wish i could learn and join? =P

I'm curious about how it all works. The first time I looked into this, several years ago, I could not figure out what was going on. Now that I'm active in the [c3c] MTDG II, I have a better idea, but the various sub-forums are still throwing me for a curve.
Is there a How To Play thread or post anywhere in the archives?
Sign Up and Jump In sounds fine, but how do you know if you are drowning or not? :confused:

There is a welcome center Q&A here (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=309758).
So far all we're doing is discussing the shape of the game.

Well, we've got 15 so far, ranging from office holders to Lurkers. This is good, I expect more later. :thumbsup:

I'm just going to see how the game works and maybe have a bit of input here or there. I don't think I'm experienced enough to run for a n office though.
Feb 15, 2009, 08:35 AM
Zearo, in the first games none of us had experience. We learned through experimenting. And found the fun in moving our nation forward as a group. Good to have you.

I'll stick to voting and watching first, then see about offices if I'm confident enough. Never participated in one of these, and it's been a long while since i've played Civ3, so...
REALLY excited to be involved, though.

REALLY glad to have you here, Darkwish. :thumbsup:

Some, at least for the next month and a half. Lent is starting this coming Wednesday. My time will be reduced somewhat.
Feb 22, 2009, 08:13 AM
Actually, for me, it's something in between options 2 and 3. All depends on how my time is taken by other things.
Though what could be more important than a game of Civ :confused:
Feb 22, 2009, 10:04 AM
Just one more turn chat. :D
Feb 22, 2009, 05:18 PM
number two probably, depends on time
Feb 23, 2009, 07:42 AM
It all depends on how my schedule works out, so I voted "some".
Any real activity in this would likely start sometime in March. I won't have a great deal of time until then.
Feb 24, 2009, 12:16 AM
Glad you signed up, Elear. If I can be of any help or answer any questions, just let me know.
Welcome to everyone else, too!
Feb 24, 2009, 09:59 AM
voted "some" simply b/c i don't have DG experience...but willing to learn :) hold office if possible, etc :yup:
Feb 28, 2009, 07:01 AM
I am new to this, to choose some, but now that i come to think of it, you can count me in very
Feb 28, 2009, 02:43 PM
I'm countin' on ya, billybones27.

Greetings fellow citizens
This is my first democracy game, so I'm sure I've got a lot to learn :) I plan to be pretty active and post regularly & am excited about being a Celtic citizen! Though I don't think I've got the relevant experience to run for public office, I'll be happy to put my two pennies worth into any debates we may have.
