Yeah sorry Product, I didn't mean it to be a personal attack, I guess it's bad luck that I went to bed after I posted that so I couldn't respond sooner. I know it is low to put down an opponent to promote my own game, but I was being a bit silly, but I can see not silly enough! I would like to formally apoligize for my previous post, that of which, was an attack on the personal level (despite the intentions).
I understand that it's undoubtedly frustrating, not getting your turn after several attempts of campaigning but we should not stoop to that level of campaigning, whether jokingly or not. Your concept is a fine idea that's been discussed before but never executed and it would be fun to try it out. Focus on that as your selling point.
Tell you what. I'm not gonna stop running but as a gesture of good faith, I'm gonna honor our previous arrangements that we made where I promised you my vote in this GM election, should you elect me for mayor in the last game. Since you effectively helped my side win the game by doing that, It's only fair that I come through with my promise.
I'm still your rival though and I encourage everyone who want to play my game to vote for me.
Why can't we be friends?
I liked that video. And since it happened in the trenches it reminded me of a very good peace of cinematic called Joyeux Noel (Merry Christmas). It's based on a true story that moved me greatly as I studied about it during history class where the France side, its Scottish allies and the German front stopped fighting for couple of days to celebrate Christmas. While the fight continued elsewhere these soldiers, who had been busy killing each other few days back, where exchanging gifts and stories about their sweethearts and villages. They played football together and promised to come visit each other once the war would end. Sadly it would not last. The leadership for each side found out what was happening and dispersed the soldiers, sending them to alternative battlegrounds where they would have to fight for their lives again. Here's the trailer for the movie. If you haven't seen it, I recommend that you look it up (find a subtitled version since it's spoken in English, French and German).
