It's just a idea guys ,but we could do some public relation's for this game among the other member's of this site to participate in this wonderfull site showdown.
I have thought about giving news covarage ,preferably on the main page about this game ,but then with limited information.
This game could get very popular ,eventually ,this come's close to site war's (on a game level) ,and many of the Cfc'rs might want to win this baby ,just for the Complete honour ,and to brag of to poly and etc. for some years.

Then again ,we should give some thought to what we should give and what not ,if we uberhaupt decide to do that anyway.In any case ,i think we should attrackt a good historian to keep track of our deeds ,just for having written history.
We might want to attrack a good and dedicated writer out of the stories & tale's forum.Some of the guys out there are really good ,and quite funny.

Well ,it are just some thought's ,no poll or anything yet.

Nice idea, we should have a Public relations director directly attached to the foreign leader. This way, he could be "fired" at any moment if the Foreign leader thinks that he let too much info get out of the High Council. We could also post its news at the UN, just to make the other sites know what we want them to know...

Exactly ,it may be strategicly interresting to sometimes give information that is not nessecarely correct ,but that may scare of an enemy for ex. .

i'm all for a 'misinformation division' (to paraphrase Fight Club). I don't see a reason why we shouldn't. Besides, we could have some fun with it.

"'misinformation division' " Maybe we should call it the 'Ministry of Truth'. I think 1984 is having an impact on me! I nominate EA for the job!

If it's TOO outrageous, they'll catch on. Maybe, something like, "We have 10 warriors stationed to the north. (but, not too soon, since it's kind of obvious that you can't have 10 warriors and 2 cities by turn 11.)

Thanks for the nomination Goonie, I would have so much fun in a "misinformation division" but right now I'm swamped by RL and the game, so I'm gona decline, I would, however, serve as an advisor or 'creative consultant' to the one who does get the job.

This sounds quite interesting :)

Anyone been in contact with some from the "Stories & Tales" forum?

I don't know if I have much to contribute to this Ministry of Truth, but I'll help if I can.

We could call the news/history-reports for Newspeak, just to follow up on the 1984 idea :)
