How Early is Too Early for Congress?

Post by Jeff Sweaters on 2012-12-17, 22:22

Hi everyone,

I am new around here, but have played about a year ago. I quickly remembered all the basics of the game, and am looking forward to diving deeper into it this time around. One way I have tried doing that is getting into a MU and a Political Party.

I am thinking about running for Congress to step into a leadership role (since I have a good bit of time to devote to eRepublik and eBelgium). Any words of advice or requirements or tips?

Thanks!

First of all, I gave you a citizen mask Smile
I hope you enjoy to see the rest of the forum as well

About joining congress and getting a leadership role, as long as you are constructive, open minded, willing to listen to reasonable other players, there is a career for you. Some people in eBe their star has only started to rise recently, but they are already rather far Smile

Talk into your party about what is expected and what you want and after CP elections contact the winning CP with the question if you can help out, that is all what is important, cause if you prove yourself, you will be given all the opportunities that you want Smile

some are following the debates before they give it a try, others try it right away, whatever, until now, nobody has been beaten up for trying (and if there are, we aint gonna tell you Razz )

Thanks for the responses. I am running for the next vote (6 days I believe). I don't know if I need to campaign or anything, but when you see Jeff Sweaters, give it a click!

Thank you again (and feel free to add me as a friend)!

Since the admins made the most retarded political system in the history of this game, you no longer need to vote for a candidate but for a party.

So you have to suck up to your party president so he/she put you on top of the candidate list

as member of Res Belgica you better send the PP a photo of you with at least 24 kitkat wraps in your hand.
hint: keep some traces of chocolate around your mouth, he likes that.
and be happy it is not NLSP any more as PP, we had to kill some kittens to become congressmember Twisted Evil

Although humor is always welcomed and encouraged on my posts, I can't tell how much of these posts are serious. Do you actually increase your chances by sucking up to people? Or by doing something else?

it is important where on the list you stand and the Party President determines that. In some parties it may be the habit to bribe the PP, however in RB it has always been tried to get to a fair order. However, if the PP doesn't know you at all, you shouldn't expect to become high on the list.
Best advise is to contact your PP and be active so people get to know you .

@boer jan: you loved killing these kittens ^^

I think NLSP has said it all well.
Whatever you choose, it must reflect at least in some way to that what you like the most.

Well, I don't have any gold at the moment, I just upgraded my training grounds...

And I guess I'll just see what happens in RB for congress. I don't know how to get my name out there. As seen in my other thread about Newb questions, I don't really know what to do other than work and train. I come on here but I'm the only one asking questions and I don't want to be as annoying as this guy -> bounce
