    Neither here nor there.
    Welcome to the REAL WORLD, where there are no exams, no rotations, and no summer long breaks. It is a dirty, cruel, mean world out there, and everyone has to scrape to make ends meet, unless you have a cushy job that is. We all want the economy to do well, and make money, but not everyone is really out for your interest. Let's try to remove those who are getting in the way shall we?

    IMPORTANT RULES:
    1) Editing IS allowed (not of votes though).
    2) Only PM within your group unless told otherwise.
    3) THIS GAME THREAD SHOULD ONLY CONTAIN STRATEGY RELATED POSTS. Please do not make fun, cutesy, or other comments here. That is what the conversation is for. This game thread should be an easy read for those who seem to have real lives.


    It is Day 1. TIME TO VOTE for a CEO.

    PLEASE NOTE:
    1) THE CEO will not be able to be investigated. Let's face it, CEOs have too much power to let anyone know the truth about them.
    2) THE CEO will LOSE all their powers once elected, because running a company is a full time job.
    3) The CEO will have some PM privileges.
    4) The CEO may or may not have other abilities.

    Please note item 1 and 2 about the CEO. They are obviously important to game strategy.

    There are 21 players (a couple counts as one player) in the game:

    Polluting Chemical Company Inc.
    1- Gwenevre + Ashgirl
    2-VetAsh2117

    Um.

    It seems to me that we want to be careful how we go about this. We don't want to put someone in the position of having to say "Uhhhh.... my role ability is major, please don't make me CEO so we lose it."

    So we need at least a few peeps to step up and say "I'm electable because picking me won't (for instance), take away a seer from the villagers" (per Note 2 about the CEO).

    I don't want to vote for someone until I'm comfortable losing their ability isn't a big loss to the villagers.

    Losing my role would not likely be a big deal to the villagers ... but I don't want CEO because of time issues.

    I agree with LIS. I know you don't want CEO because of time issues, but for now I'm going to just ****elect LIS**** since you're the only one who has admitted a minor role so far. I'll switch if someone else thinks they're a better candidate with more time on their hands.

    After an exhaustive search of many extremely qualified candidates, and unqualified candidates as well, the Search Committee has voted to make Lissarae06 the CEO of SDN Inc. You have to wonder just a bit about this committee though, I mean, Lissarae went from hawking Hot Dogs one day to running a multinational corporation the next day. Gotta love the American Dream. Hopefully she is up for the challenge.

    Night closes at 6am EST. No extensions, no excuses. This is the real world.

    ps- if anyone knows of someone who might like to be added to play this WW game, let me know, there is a unique opportunity to join in at the ground floor of this juggernaut.

    The running of a large corporation is a complex activity with many people doing many things, but also a lot of it involves waiting around for people to actually do/finish the things they are supposed to do. That requires patience. Basically what I am trying to say is that nothing important enough to announce has happened.

    <crickets>

    Day 2 closes at 7pm EST. Votes posted/received after 7pm will be ignored. No hanging chads, no voter fraud is tolerated.

    There are still 21 players (a couple counts as one player) in the game:

    Please note there has been movement. Please remove moved players from your group conversation.
