Everyone,

Welcome to the Thirty-Fourth Town of Odyssey Election campaign! This board is here to allow citizens (such as yourself) the opportunity to gather supporters for your race to become an administrator of the Town of Odyssey. The titles of Mayor and Chief of Police are up for grabs, along with the privilege of selecting the Town of Odyssey police force (the moderators who watch over different sections of the town). The Mayor/Chief of Police will be responsible for making decisions on how to run the town, as well as performing any and all administration duties that arise. As citizens, it is your responsibility to perform your civic duty and vote in the people you deem the best for the job! This term will last the standard four months.

The hopeful candidates will need to collect a total of $7,000 and submit the entry fee to me by the end of the day on Saturday, February 18. Upon receiving the fee, each team will receive a private forum to come up with strategies as well as the option of inviting supporters to join them in their discussions.

Following February 18, all threads in this main campaign board will be removed to make things more organized for the remaining candidates. Also, please do not take pre-election polls of who people are going to voting for. While that is common to do in the real world, the small number of members on this board result in the unfortunate situation where pre-election polls will mirror post election results and remove some of the suspense of the election. Citizens are not asked to hide or lie about who they are going to vote for, but formal polls are discouraged. Please also keep in mind that PMing people to ask them to vote for you is regarded as spam, and often makes people think less of your team, not more. People who are interested in the election will peruse the campaign threads right here in the election forum and will form an opinion about who to vote for.


The election will take place Friday, March 3 to Sunday, March 5 with the results being revealed at some point during Monday, March 6. Best wishes to all the contestants! I look forward to seeing what will happen in the ToO's latest election season.

Or we could take the last Election to be a mandate from the people that Catsville should remain the law of the land.

Well, there is that. I have received a minimal amount of complaints (to my face) ;) about the Catsville reign. Of course, these kinds of things have been known to escalate, so extended power could lead to...no, better not to say. O:)

Hmmm, wish the election season was slightly longer so as to promote extended cashflow.

Anyway, polling to be released shortly.

If somebody can't convince people they are worthy of a donation in the time given, they aren't going to with a longer amount of time either, in my opinion.

Last year, for example, Bob started campaigning with Moontide, rather late. He couldn't raise the cash in time.

Also, $7,000? If I may be so blunt, you yourself have, like, $4,000, if ya get my drift.

The entry fee varies from time to time. If I'm not mistaken, it goes off of how quickly funds were acquired the last election. It in this case not acquired.. I'm just spitballing though.

It is with gladness that I say that the people of Odyssey are an excellent community. You have been gracious (to say the least) and, all things considered, extraordinarily hospitable to me in the wake of my crash-landing here more than a year ago. It is with reserved satisfaction that I say, to some users more than others, that we don't agree on everything. I have been wrong, very much so, at times, and even where I'm right, the ability to disagree on matters of politics, cuilture, and definitely matters of faith is part of what makes me proud to be American.

It is with a pride I don't deserve to have, in the ToO and certainly in its citizens, whether you're Catspaw, Snubs, Moontide, Woody, Bookworm, Bob, Connie G., Countess, American Eagle, Jehosophat, and yes, even you, Tea Ess, in your ability to be good, upright, and excellent leaders, and in the fact that you are deep down brothers in Christ, all of you, and honest and pious men and women, that I say there is no way I'm running for mayor this time.

The whole point is that it is supposed to take multiple supporters to run for office. It shouldn't be something that a whole bunch of people can finance on their own, because then they wouldn't need the support of others. The dollar amounts have varied over the years, as has the amount of cash on the ToO in general, but that principle has remained consistent. The whole point is that it isn't too easy.

Well, it looks like nobody is even actively running with a partner at the deadline, which makes this election season quite short! More Catsville, I guess?

For the record, it'd be somewhat more accurate to say that I didn't raise the cash in time, rather than that I couldn't.

Catsville forever!
