    Come with proof of your insults before making such heavy judgements.

    Any citizen can give his opinion and suggestions. It is the PF who listens to all the suggestions and then decides what should be done.

    The title of the leader is decided by the prime faction, Shattered's title is Enlightened One

    It came from me.

    It was a comment on Joe Harkers insults against the system.

    I think its best for all parties we get a Prime Faction election soon, but not from this rebellion, but with good strategy alternatives from all sides.

    Interestingly enough, the outcome of this poll, even with the influx and outflow of players, we see that the support for and against Triad remains more or less the same in the initial election.

    Happy? No. There are more than enough veteran players in the Coalition who should have known that such threads help keep everyone informed on the status, progress and goals of the DG game.

    The Prime Faction blew it - they started this game off poorly - with thunder and lightning and no substance. That it took something like this to get them to finally see reason is embarrasing. That they try to blame their failing on others is worse.

    The majority of players (inside the Coalition) knew what really happened, so blaming veterans in the faction won't do, I called for instruction threads and reports from day one.

    None of "the veterans" could post it, since that would be outside our given mandates.
    Triad politics is challenging, as factions cannot usurp other factions mandates, so we had to keep the lines clean.

    But we did not expect any but catty remarks, so that's ok, we were prepared for it, actually surprised they did not come sooner. Negative campaigning only won't earn any points, as there is more to this game than just that.

    Also, you cannot build a platform on blame, and blame only, as well as hanging out individuals, the Tribals must look into their core, and see what they can offer, that not only meet Traditional criteria, but also Factional interests.

    Triad has now advanced even farther, and will now, with more cities in play, offer more room for collective decision-making, as we now got more to decide with.

    If I understand correctly, all you need for a rebellion to occur is 3 people in support of it, right? Beyond that, you then need a majority of voters to support it to bring about a PF re-ellection, right? So, it would seem that there are as of this posting, only 19 of 45 in support of the rebellion, therefore there is no re-ellection, unless prior to poll closing 3 more support the rebellion and no one else opposes?

    The three players supported it, you can guarantee they are some of the three original votes of the 19, so no double votes please.

    Of course the Triad has advanced - when you set the standard low, you cannot go higher.

    The Tribal Faction has worked towards improving overall communication and discussions, but we've been shot down time and again. We've heard things like "It's our decision, so we don't care what you think" and "That's up to <Faction>, so they'll make the call" on too many issues. That's where the negativity has started - from the Triad stepping on the voices they don't want to hear.

    The votes here are showing a strong erosion of support for the Triad Coalition. The policies of the Triad of exclusion, derision and division have driven people away from the Triad, towards another system. During this rebellion, all we heard from the Triad was blaming others for the problems, desperate attempts to remain in power, but never actual fixes and solutions. We've gotten promises, but not delivery.

    The source of this rebellion and the dissention within the citizens does not lie with an outsider, but with the failures of the Triad Coalition. The winds of change are obvious, and should be ignored only by the foolish.

    I checked back at the first prime faction voting


    It was 24 for triad
    17 distrubted between Trabla council and Timus
    this is a +7 for triad

    The current rebellion vote is +6 for triad

    An erosion of one vote. Which does not sound like a huge drop off
