We can't let The Saloon win the civil war.
The civil war is basically General Discussions vs The Saloon, to see who will get it's people to play in the Battle of the Forums.

The thread where we can nominate who we want to participate, is located in The Saloon, and that makes a lot of spammers Salooners post there, so The Saloon is currently winnign the civil war.
Those people dont even play AoE3 (or play very little), we should represent out forum, and not them.


I want to make a mini-nomination here, the ones (obiusly, from General Discussions) who really want to participate, say it here, i'll add your name in the main post, then, we, the GD community, can vote for them in The Nominations Thread for The Battle of the Forums.
Here, you can nominate people, as much people as you want, and you can also nominate yourself. As long as everyone that is in this list wants to participate, they will be in the list. Then, the 3 of them who gets more votes here will win our mini-nominations and we will all vote those 3 people in the official thread, so there is more chances those 3 will win the real nomination, and we, the GD guys, will win the civil war.


Now we will all have to go to the Official Nominations thread, and vote for Eicho, Medio and Cookie. Then we will have more chances for them to win.
We cannot let the spammers salooners represent us in Battle of the Forums.

I declare that everyone that read this goes to the Offical Nomination Thread and votes for Eicho, Mediolanus and CookieCrisp13, NOW!

(I know this is off-topic and should go on The Saloon, and thats kinda ironic )

Gandalf, i think you didnt understood the point of this thread.
The point, is to get organized, and then we all vote in the offical nomination thread, to 3 most voted people here, this is a organized way, and almost guarantees this people will win if a lot of us go and vote for them 3

I'm going to need more votes to win this one. That's why I used my propagandic German mind and came up with these propaganda election posters:







The translations are, respectively:

"Discipline
Honour
Mediolanus"

"Mediolanus
above
all"

"I vote Mediolanus

you too?

Mediolanus
Cowboy of General Discussions"

I apologise for any possible spelling/grammar mistakes. I'm, to put it euphemistically, not really fluent in German. Luckily Interglot exists. By the way, I also apologise for my lousy picture editing skills which do not go beyond MS Paint.

Oh, and if you don't know where the heck these posters are about, take a look at these threads.

Of course, I had loads of other ideas for German propaganda posters, but they were a bit too national-socialistic to be forum-friendly (and to draw any voters; at least, I think the only nazis visiting this forum are grammar nazis). So I refrain from posting my "Eine Gemeinschaft, Ein Himmel, Ein Mediolanus" posters and the like.

Nice Medio, but why german propaganda?
If you like German from AoE3 you could use it's flag, not the real German flag.

In some hours Angel Walker will stop nominations and start voting on The Offical Nominations Thread, and we ALL have to go there and vote for Mediolanus, Eicho and CookieCrisp.

If we all vote for them, i am almost sure they (or some of them) will win. If we get at least one of them to play in BotF, we win the civil war!

Allgemeinauseinandersetzungskühreiter?

No word can be that long!

I'll start the voting round later this day, by the way. And maybe it'd be better to have everyone vote in only one GD forummer, or maybe none of the three will make it to the game

That's the nice thing about German; they like to combine words instead of seperating them.
Nice Medio, but why german propaganda?
Because German is the coolest language in the world. Besides, you know how I like Germany in Age3.
If you like German from AoE3 you could use it's flag, not the real German flag.
But there was no Germany in the time period. Besides, this one looks better.

While we're on the subject, the German national anthem is the best in the world, after that of the Soviet Union (only for the tune, don't know the text, but it will probably be about revolutions and working classes) and that of the Netherlands (but that's just my nationalism).

I like Germany's and America's. Israel is the best IMO, I like it because of the tone.

The Netherlands, by the way, have the oldest national anthem in the world, dating back to 1574. Only the first of the 15 stanzas is the official anthem. I like the lyrics because it is not as nationalistic as your average national anthem.

the German one has just plain funny lyrics. the 2nd stanza (which isn't officially part of the anthem) starts with "German wine and German women".

I think I'm going to live in Germany when I get older.....

It should be German beer, not wine.

Walker, I'm going out of town for the weekend, so I won't have internet connection then. since I might miss the voting, I'll vote for Eicho, Cooky and you.

Oh, and Eicho, why are we voting for 3 people? The team consists out of 2 forummers and a mod.

Click!

There you go. And I unominated myself, you'll have to pick another guy to vote for

Oh, and you actually can vote up to three people. So yeah, your plan works just fine.

EDIT: Also, Mods don't have to be in. The teams will be made of three forummers from each heaven, limited to one mod for each team. But there can be teams made of no mods at all, which will probably be the case here.

I don't get how it's a civil war :/

The only reason you won't get nominated by us is because you don't post in The Saloon, so we don't know you. Smash is getting plenty of votes and he's a GDer, I think.

house won this

I'd restate then that it'd make more sense to have an even split. I don't know if any Saloon people want to play in it (I'm out), but that's not the point.
