    Thanks Nobody. It has been a rough 2 weeks at work and I'm not the slightest bit surprised that I missed a thread. Was really hoping for that volunteer... Glad to see someone just open the thread instead of complaining about it or running to the judiciary. :goodjob:

    I accept.

    I am not to keen on accepting, since last time, I was the only left out, and that is not to happen again.

    It's hard to predict what the people will do, but it is apparent to me that you've improved your record on following the citizens wishes. That's enough for me at least.

    I think I decline.

    This particular election lost my flavor, as one can read from the votes. Having a third against oneself on a permanent basis on a multiple choice poll like this is not really motivating. I prefer one-on-one election polls of 60-40 outcomes to 95, 95, 95, 95, 95, 95, 95 and 55 outcomes, as semi-hidden groupist favoritism never really found my passion. A head to head election is more a straightforward comparison of candidates, where this election is more a friendship parade of outsiders and insiders. I see more than I let on.

    I can write well, report more detailed than many what actually happened, follow instructions to the letter and play a strong save (Dutchfire can possibly vouch for the Innovian Succession game), but that does not really matter in a popularity contest. I think I am happy with the rough warlord status.

    I dont think i will have the time to play the save, it takes a few good hours for a turnchat, and with work the big strechs of time i have totally free are spent raiding on world of warcraft. But thanks for the nomination.

    I will decline due to time constraints. Thank you for your nomination though.
