    :lol: Maybe your not so bad after all:mischief:
    Except for your comments on the three "new players" who screwed up the game. FYI, I did the legal thing to do, and if people disagreed i said take it to the judicary, or impeach me. But no one impeached me they just blew steam. Then i took it to the judicary, because i wanted justice.

    So, I am sorry that i didn't agree with the omnipotent vets and made my own decision. My bad guys, i'm sorry

    Three new players who screwed up the game? Who would that be? Anyways, I voted for Strider because what he cares about most isn't legalism, but the game, and about fun and parenthood and applepie and all that nice stuff.

    Capitalize the N on the word nobody in this paragraph, and this becomes one of the funniest comments I've seen in awhile. :lol:

    Weird thing about this comment is that I've actually been thinking alot about marriage recently. :hmm: I hate applepie though... nasty.

    This is an interesting election. I can sympathise with DZ about posting messages you look back at with horror, and appreciate his honesty. I don't want to make my vote based on an error - Strider made a pretty unfortunate suggestion with the 'co-presidency', though that didn't attempt to exclude a wholegroup of citizens.

    Anyway, my vote goes for Strider due to his efforts over a number of terms toimprove the experience of the DG for all of us. Although I am not personally interested in role playing I think it is good that so many other folks are and Strider seems to have put a lot of work into that. Also, he followed up on the Information Department idea and has tried to make that work.

    :old: Sorry Strider, but you're an old :old: veteran and so I felt I should give the new kid my vote.

    I'm confused, is this a private joke I'm missing? Strider is only 17 and Donsig is 45. It seems weird to call Strider old when he's still just a kid. No offense Strider.

    They are refering to how long I've taken part in the Demogame. I beat almost anyone, except Donsig and Chieftess, in overall length of partcipation in the demogame.

    No, it's not a private joke. I got to thinking that Donovan Zoi might be losing some votes since he's looked upon as one of the veterans from the earlier demogames. I thought that would be so ironic since Strider's been around the demogames longer than DZ. It's not a matter of real life age, it's about who the DG *oldtimers* really are.
