None of that Jacobin shit for us. We need a proper (if somewhat disfunctional) House, with fiery oratory, and question periods, and stuff.

First we have to find someone who enjoys the support of a majority of our members. People may form themselves into parties if they wish, or they may proceed straight to confirming qweeg as PM.

Go ahead. Busy yourselves with the dirty business of self governance.

My manifesto for election

If you vote for me I will:

1. Ensure that Venom is bummed regularly, although I won't be doing the bumming personally.
2. Be tough on Asher and the causes of Asher.
3. Allow every poster the freedom to buy burgers, beer and wine whenever they want for as long as they can afford it within the licencing laws of their host countries of course.
4. Organise a forum lottery, 25% of the profits of which will go to charitable funds like the the "new Playmobil for Vinnie" or the "buy Kitty a Sybian" appeals.
5. Work hard fix the massive problems caused by Bossman.
6. Introduce a 200 word limit on Darkstar posts.
7. Continue to create the worlds greatest database of hot dog sites.
8. Not increase income tax.
9. Introduce a strong anti-terrorism bill which bans anyone from posting pictures of me to the forum.
10. Encourage the growth of posting about minority sports like Cricket, Rugby and all those boring American ones.

Make that a 200 characters limit, and you have my vote.

Funko
18-05-2005, 10:44:44
That's very interesting, I'll take that under consideration.

In a completely unrelated matter how much are you contributing to my campaign fund?

I'll form a single issue party

The Counterglow Unitarian National Team are proposing to setup quotas for immigration from other fora. Legitamate refugees will always be welcome but we wish top stop the flow of migrants who are only here because they with to expoit our freedoms (and because they have been banned from poly)

All poly related threads will be immediately rounded up and shiped back to where they came from.

And remember : vote Funko and wake up with KG!

And we need a decent Mothership!

Typical dirty campaigning from Beta1.
What he fails to mention is that he himself is an immigrant from another forum! Would you be allowed to post here under your proposals Mr 1?

Call that an opposition?

1- I will end, once and for all., the cruel and unusual punishment that is ding-ding kicking. Tizzy will henceforth be required to find new outlets for emotion, such as making nice cups of coffee or bonsai.
2- The Norks will be required to prove their existance and compatibility with EU legislation on jubbly size and perkiness.
3- Let's not fanny about. Darkstar will be banned.
4- NYE will be required to terminate his recent bout of excessive seriousness and general heaviness by randomly inserting the word "buttocks" into his posts. Ever fourth NYE post will be required to contain an image of a baby lamb or a nicely filled lady's T-shirt.
5- Free counselling for KG to tackle his bumhole fixation.
6- The Dutch will be given a healthy grant to help them voluntarily resettle on the geek forum.

Banning is wrong, this is one of the fundamental principles of CG and unlike that fascist Lazarus and the Gimp. I'm not prepared to waver in supporting this fundamental principle. Even in the face of Darkstar.

Think about it, he might ban Darkstar now but who's he going to ban next? Could it be you? What's next, approving all posts before they are posted?

While its true that I was not born on this great forum I came here to escape a series of tyranical regimes ! Under my proposals I would still be allowed to be here. We have always been open to those in need. But we must shut the door on people from poly seekign to exploit our forum!

Funko
18-05-2005, 11:16:24
What about posters like Vincent, CGB Spender, Drekkus and Tizzy! They all moved to CG from 'poly for purely ideological reasons!

Your policy might deal with some short term annoyance but you'd be slamming the door in the faces of some potentially valuable future members of the community.

I say NO! and I hope the voters of CG will say NO! too.

Drekkus

See, now he's abusing his position to get favours for his girlfriend!

A new policy, compulsary fake tans for all posters. The futures bright, the futures orange!

Funko
18-05-2005, 11:47:50
Favours?

Not having been banned before she even started posting here isn't a favour is it?

Are you suggesting these posters would all be thrown out?

How much is the groinal defence for whoever tries to throw Tizzy out going to cost?

And what about Vincent and Drekkus?

Huh. Call yourselves politicians?

Nav
18-05-2005, 12:52:42
Vote for me (The Massive change party) I will:

1. Allow bannings, but permit the bannee to unban-themselves

2. Remove the 20 second flood control, replacing it with a quota of 180 posts per hour.

3. Open the secret forum to all moderators.

4. Introduce a voluntary subscription model to replace the donation system.

+ Many other ineffectual policies I don't have the time to think of...

What concessions would Funko be willing to make if Mr G agreed to stop trying to help him?

Greg W
18-05-2005, 12:53:55
Oh, I heraby apply for the position of minister of Arts (aka Drama)! I don't think anyone has quite the experience that I do in Drama. :nervous:

Ok, you bloody reform obsessed wankers, think you are progressive or some shit like that, hmm?

Here's my manifesto:

No change. Vote the status quo. No experiments. No risk. No danger. Happy little trees.

Lazarus and the Gimp
18-05-2005, 13:31:05
A compromise position on Darkstar. If we can't ban him, can we just slap him about a bit when he really deserves it?

Dyl Ulenspiegel
18-05-2005, 13:34:15
You don't need a change for that, that's just plain common sense and self defense.

Drekkus
18-05-2005, 13:34:28
I'm thinking about forming a compromise alliance, for the hesitant people, where we'll debate about changes for infinite times. But I'm not sure yet.

zmama
18-05-2005, 13:40:52
I'll join that alliance!

New amendment to immigration policy:

All new arrivals to be subject to a counterglow-ness test to determine their suitability.


Test questions shall include:

1: Is Ming, a) a bastard, b) a bastard, c) a bastard?
2: Who is the schjmart one, Drekkus or Mr.G ?
3: What have you done with Qweeg?
4: Are you Keith? If not, why not?
5: Free form essay question on the rules of 100-0

Funko and mr G!

mr.G
19-05-2005, 09:57:53
first we need a partyname.
I was thinking (for you being the best dutch speaker registered here) DutchRadicals.
the same initials as Darkstar, so we can fuck up all his posts.

Funko
19-05-2005, 10:02:57
What about the Losers party - people might vote for us just to be funny.

yaaaaaay that's the one.

we call it the W.D.E.S.I.T.K.A.A.P.P.
than we have party party at the end and we can do some lame semicool handshake.

Funko
19-05-2005, 10:22:04
I don't think we need party party at the end... do we?

Although that'd show how pointless we are, constructing a massive long party name to utilise the fact that we'd be the something party and then add party to it anyway.

mr.G
19-05-2005, 10:30:29
