    On behalf of the Triad Coallition I want to point out how excited we are the game has started, and thank all those who have voted for us.

    So Now we have the Start, and the warrior has been moved. This poll will show the public's postion on the start, not decide it. It may ,however, influence it.



    I have made some logical suggestions, if you have other ideas, please share them.

    Glory to our nation!

    This is an opinion poll, and not a decision poll. Just thought i would say that.

    It's also pretty premature, normally we allow a good time for discussion before posting even an opinion poll.

    The Genesis turn thread is discussing it, and you can discuss it here too.

    I think it is fair enough they post an opinion poll, they are merely gauging what people think before discussions.

    Haha, the final decision rests in the hands of the Philosophers. We just want to know what everyone's wants are now. If you want to discuss it, do it here then RF, instead of flaming the thread.

    Need an option for "I'm not really sure". None of them really stick out.

    No, discussion is just a conspiracy by the veteran conservative elite that tries to control the entire demogame :rolleyes:

    Well there has been a discussion in the chat, the genenis turn topic and the Philosophers topic. Including this one would be suffice I'd say.

    I would say 1SE, by sure (both Conroe and NZL made a good explanation about).
    Excellent food (fish,pigs,lots of grass,irrigation) - and we are Philo - enough production
    (3 hills) excellent commerce. Coastal,loses fresh water,but 2 health resources. And happy,
    too.
    Both peace and war ways are open.
    Best regards,

    I'm in favor of 1S 2E. Calendar resources aren't gonna do anything until, well, Calendar, so losing the Dyes is a non-issue. We get tons of food, which is perfect for a specialist city. It also leaves us with tons of options for other cities. We could settle on the coast south of the dyes for a nice seaside commerce city, or farther north to include the silk. If we go 1SE, we may be screwing ourselves out of a decent spot for a city west of the capital

    I say 1 SE, for pigs, clams, fish, dyes and 3 hills. Plus we don't waste move, else, 1S2E sounds good aswell. Good point about us being Philo!

    I beg your pardon? The post I've quoted is the only one flaming anyone here. My comment stands - a poll such as this without discussion is useless at best, misleading at worst. With this, people vote, THEN there's discussion and views change. The result is another poll, or massive vote switching. Either way, you will have chaos and complaints.

    I await your apology.

    Settle in place. I discussed my reasoning already. Then again, not everyone likes chopping for production...

    Here's the thing - why wouldn't a discussion on something like this be in it's own thread? While not an absolutely critical decision, it's the first big decision we're going to make as a nation. Putting everying into a single thread with an obvious table makes it VERY easy for people that don't read every thread to find the information.

    Personally, I glanced at the Creation thread, saw the screen shots and didn't go back. Likewise, the Philosophers thread is a completely non-obvious place for a discussion. So now we've got THREE places where discussion on this is happening - this thread, the creation thread and the Phil. thread. That's rather difficult to keep track of, you know?

    If it's a big decision, EVERYONE is helped by creating a single thread for the discussion on that issue, let it go for a day or two, then think about a poll. The way it was done here makes it very difficult for more relaxed citizens to follow what's going on. And that has been one of the biggest complaints from previous DG's - that the information is minimal and scattered. This isn't a good way to make that better.

    Well it IS obvious that the discussion takes place in the Philosophers thread, because we are the Prime Faction! Other threads are there so the people know whats going on. I agree that the threads could be more organized.

    I thought something called the triad won the elections, but I might be becoming delusional
