    ATTENTION ALL CITIZENS

    Decisions are being made RIGHT NOW that will affect the Demogame. Specifically, the discussion about the ruleset is entering it's final stage. All sections of the Constitution have been ratified. Multiple sections of the Code of Laws and the Code of Standards are being ratified right now, the others are currently being discussed.

    This is your chance to have a strong influence on the game. Please, vote in the ratification polls (after reading through the discussion thread!), and stop by the discussion threads of the open issues. We're a mostly (don't start will some of my twitchy subjects! :lol: ) friendly bunch. Ask your questions in the relevant threads, or bounce over to either of the Judicial nomination threads - most of the active ruleset authors are running for one Judicial office or another!.

    Thanks!
    -- Ravensfire

    And it's tied once again! Only this time, the voter neglected to claim which candidate he voted for. Hmmm.

    Well, you were up one, so that kinda narrows it down.

    I'm loving this - just loving it!

    Hey Cyc, how's about we start a debate in the nomination thread? You ask a question - I'll answer it, then ask you one in return. Interested? I've got a team meeting, so that's why I suggested you start...

    :lol: :lol: That's pretty funny. I really wasn't searching for the candidate that person voted for...I wanted to know who voted. :lol: :lol:

    Xen and Civanator! What an unexpected suprise. Thank you both very much for your votes. You have brought me back into a tie with Ravensfire.

    :sad: Ravensfire is one tough opponent to beat. :hammer: But I'm workin' on it.

    What are we going to do if they are still tied at 00:00 GMT ? A cagefight ? ;)

    I assume we'd do a runoff...let's hope that nobody files a PI while the election is still ongoing. ;)

    Or, we could follow your suggestion and do a donsig vs. DZ-style cage fight, but it would probably last over about three DG's. ;)

    Or do a run off including the top 2 or 3 from the AJ poll and pick the top 3. That way we would get the choice to keep both of them - a bit hard though if one of the AJ winners loses their place as a result!

    A run off election assumes that there were more choices in the first one. It would be a travesty just to repeat the election hoping that someone forgets to vote or changes their mind.

    A runoff doesn't seem right here. But we need a CJ fast. Have you got any suggestions ?

    What do the books say about the President having a decisive vote in polls ? And do they include Election polls ?
