    Ghostsjack01

    Why do you want to become Foix next president?:

    I want to president of Foix so i can implement my 5-point program :
    1) The builder-resident program : The builder-resident program offers cheap plots and discounted basic resources to builders and residents. By doing this, builders and residents have a steady start to ecc life.
    2) Renovation and reconstruction : Complete any incomplete buildings and use empty areas to build new buildings.
    3) Population improvement : Offer houses and plots to players of higher ranks. This may not be their primary home but their investment in foix's real-estate will increase the in-town population and the money from the sales will allow further developments.
    4) Event introduction : A large area will be designated to building an events area. inside the events area will be a spleef arena, a multi-purpose ice rink, etc.
    5) Nation expansion : After completing the first 4 points I will expand foix by purchasing more towns. This allows more construction to undergo plus allows more land to further my builders-residents program. Hopefully the B-R project will increase Ecc population, meaning the project can continue to grow.

    What do you think is important focusing on, making Foix a better town?:

    Improving town population as well as town construction is a priority. Ive visited Foix multiple towns and there is many incomplete buildings. Completing them is a necessity if we want to make Foix great again!

    Who will be your Vice President and ministers?:

    I'm currently making the decision of who will be my vice president and ministers.

    Captain_Death_33

    Why do you want to become Foix next president?:

    I want to be able to help Foix and attract new residents that are permanent. I want to also be a part of a governing body of a great nation. I also want to be able to see the economy grown and thrive.

    What do you think is important focusing on, making Foix a better town?:


    I think to make Foix better we need to draw permanent residents. Not have a town where we sell plots to people that will quit one week later. I'm not saying that we shouldn't be builder-friendly, but we should be sure that we are getting permanent residents that help the town and that are active and that are willing to help and build our community as a whole. Not being toxic and generally trolling residents of the nation and town.

    What will you do in your one month period?:


    I will make sure our national vault grows and the economy flourishes. I will expand the towns if necessary as we have a growing population. Getting near my goal as president if need be I can possibly add another town with the consent of the neighboring town's mayors of course. I will also try to achieve a friendly community to where residents will go outside and talk with each other. I would also like to expand our public farms to attract newer players with benefits. Maybe even add an insurance policy for players. Possibly, set up opinion polls from residents.

    What can we expect from you?:

    You can expect fast results and bold honesty. I will not sweet coat or tell you what you want to hear. I will tell you the straight truth. I will also reach out to Congress members and advisors when needed. You can expect me to use them frequently as I like for everyone to have an opinion(Voting). Additionally, you should expect a respectful president that can get the job done efficiently, that is productive, and that is not afraid to get dirty when it comes to handling matters. Finally, you should expect someone that might not know everything in one field but some in all, and that can learn quickly and get it down right.


    Who will be your Vice President and ministers?:

    For Vice President I would like: @green_tiger77 For some advisors: @Frostystorm1 and @Greg928u

    RaginDevonian

    Why do you want to become Foix next president?:

    To help this great nation improve its population and funds.

    What do you think is important focusing on, making Foix a better town?:

    I think that developing the town with great buildings to benefit the older players on the server.

    What will you do in your one month period?:

    I will do manual labor and building in the flat areas of the town. I will also help increase population and making it more builder friendly.

    What can we expect from you?:

    Helping increase the funds of the town and population as well as developing the cities.

    Who will be your Vice President and ministers?:

    I would like @Ozzyblack21 as my Vice President.

    Good luck to @ghostsjack01 and @Captain_Death_33

    I would like to say something about this election. The previous Foix President @stoler202 , Pm'ed me ingame earlier today saying I had no campaign because I did not say much of what I was planning. After thinking the advice he has given me I have decided that he is defiantly correct in saying that I was not specific in what I wanted to do with the nation. I did not release my plan because I didn't want to publicly release my plans until I had been elected. I would like to keep my plans to myself until I am elected, whether it be now or at a later date. I always liked the saying actions speak louder than words so I hope you have faith in the actions I plan on taking. Thank you all for voting and have a very Merry Christmas.

    It's not slander it's simply an opinion of the public. I simply stated that users should use caution based on a complaint I saw.

    There is more to the context. your argument is irrelevant considering me, the mods and ludolos are in a chat rn trying to discuss a resolution and an edit of the contract. it shouldn't have been approved however there had to be an inactivity clause in there. Its being altered as we speak. You've portrayed me as the villain in this situation, which I am not. ludolos isn't either. Its been a very complicated situation which I am trying to peacefully resolve and its hard with your comments. Please refrain from stirring stuff when you don't know the full situation.

    Wait but if everyone gets to vote for the next President (a Direct Democracy), then why is it called a Republic?

    A republic means that a country has a president, and no king.

    @RaginDevonian for foix!
    He doesn't evict people for inactivity or file stupid grief reports to get a 45k building!
    Instead, he erects buildings and improves the town!

    I had permission from @Ludolos, who as shown in the recently settled complaint, is a member of the Board of Maveth!
    Therefore, you should not have evicted me.

    Thats actually not true, a Republic is a type of democracy in which elected representatives hold the power to elect the President/other positions and make laws. Nobody voting in a public poll is an elected representative making it a "direct democracy", not a republic. But I guess theres more misleading things in life.
