Fixed link. It seems as if they all have different approaches. Yuri's is more of a description of the opinions, Donia's is more on what religion can be good for, and mine is more on how religion is wrong. Edward Hannis CogHammer.gif 16:41, October 31, 2010 (UTC)

Russian names[edit source]

OK, time to sort this one out. Russians have three names:

  • First name (имя). Mine is Semyon/Семен.
  • Patronymic (отчество) - this is the father's name with a patronymic ending. Mine is Edikovich/Эдикович.
  • Surname (фамилия). Mine is Breyev/Бреев.

You never need to use the patronymic (they do in Russia of course, but in English-speaking countries there's no point). Therefore your newspaper should probably refer to me as Semyon Breyev rather than Semyon Edikovich.

Sorry if this seems like nit-picking, but I like to get these things right Smile.png --Semyon 12:21, November 20, 2010 (UTC)

WikiLeaks Article[edit source]

I'd hate to say this, but your article makes little to no sense at all. Taken the fact that Lovia is basically completely neutral and that the US has no embassies or ambassadors to this nation, it is literally impossible for the US to have any cables (that is, government, namely embassy, emails) relating to this nation. Also, the things about Sarkozy and Medvedev is double-illogical; the leak as about the US, so Lovia-France relations, which is unimportant to the US, would not appear in the leak. Also, Sarkozy would have never accused Medvedev of being a "socialist freak"; as a Frenchman I'd like to inform you that behind the UMP (Union for a Popular Movement), the largest party in France is the PS, or Socialist Party. Might want to background check before you write complete nonsense, which you shouldn't even be publishing in the first place. Edward Hannis CogHammer.gif 17:47, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

No this a different wiki-leak story, which is of course not real. But you never know some nations might hate us anyway. Marcus Villanova Music is Life.Lean Forward.Walden 20:09, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

I know it's best for a king to be non-political. But I just can't. I try hard: I don't join a party, nor do I support just one party. I have preferred politicians in several parties.

Actually the person that started talking to me said he didn't want his identity revealed until the trial. I could give more detail but then it would be way to obvious.

I can't tell more but it also involves a past criminal. Marcus Villanova Music is Life.Lean Forward.Walden 23:09, January 5, 2011 (UTC)

I'd hope you follow through with this. It would seriously harm your newspapers' reputation if this turns out to be nothing. Especially taken that the author has been involved in such an affair of his own. And if you want to be quiet and sneaky, you might want to re-read your sentences. Don't try to stay neutral and yet say the word "also"... Edward Hannis CogHammer.gif 23:18, January 5, 2011 (UTC)
Why the mystery? I presume that if the complaint is real and Pierlot reads this, he knows what it is all about. The 'personal information' could then be leaked. How silly. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 12:40, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
You assume it is Pierlot, but no names were given. He could either be the blackmailed, the blackmaileé (lol, is that even a word? Smile Limba.png) or not even involved. Pierius Magnus 12:43, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps it is best not to give this claim to much attention until the mystery complainer comes out of the shadows. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 12:51, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
It seems to me the whole case is poorly handled. The entire "whistleblower" affair was much more effective! I guess Hannis is completely right: a good story is reported to LQ (or TNCT). Probably a hoax. Pierius Magnus 12:58, January 6, 2011 (UTC)
I've got mail from you. and you want to start a trial against me. I suggest you'd better not do that, since it can led to tensions.

Believe whatever you want, but these are the facts: I received a mail from the general wikia staff that some recent vandals (nine in total) shared his IP-adress. As a result he was banned from all wikia's for one year. He'll be back in January 2012. Pierius Magnus 08:04, January 8, 2011 (UTC)
This is very important since the CPL.nm is backing Pierlot in the elections: is he really linked to vandalizing and extreme-right accounts by the general wiki staff? Regaliorum (S Kitana) 13:07, January 8, 2011 (UTC)

Yuri: yes, he is. You have, in all likelihood, probably received an e-mail by now.

Retreat?[edit source]

Indeed, with these three candidates below the required minimum of six points only one other person has to drop his/her seat. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 06:49, January 19, 2011 (UTC)

I think that our election are a joke actually, we start with a number of lucky guys, those less lucky quit, and finally everybody who remains is elected JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 07:24, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think that's a joke, really. What's the difference between somebody dropping out during the elections and someone not making it into congress when the end-results are counted? The effect stays the same: some people make it, some people don't. Pierius Magnus 07:42, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
No it's not, the ones who quit make it possible to rearrange votes JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 08:30, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
In the end, it's for the best. The best people are the ones still standing at the end; it's survival of the fittest, basically. Pierius Magnus 08:54, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think so! What if in a real country we could follow the voting, wouldn't be that good! And certainly not to quit and make it possible to rearrange JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 09:11, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

It's not about "being the most fit", elections never are. What Johnnie points out is the wicked combination of three election modes, let me show you:

Because there's no secret ballot, those under the Red Line tend to fall off - either by choice (Hillbilly) or because people think their chances are too limited, thus creating a hidden two-round system. Whether that's good or bad, I don't know Smile.png. This is just the way it is. Most problems in the Lovian election system arise from the lack of secret voting. Dimitri 09:15, January 20, 2011 (UTC)

(It has fairly little to do with "survival of the fittest" anyway.) Dimitri 09:16, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
That it is! And it should change! How? Shorten the election period! Less chance to change, and making it impossible to see for others on who you vote! JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 12:07, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
That would solve the issue only partly, of course :). If we want real and realistic elections, with secret ballots, we'll have to experiment with vote by e-mail procedures. It would require an extremely strong organization, but it would allow for elections in which the voters go by their personal choice rather than "compensating for the lack of votes" or so. It would be worth trying once. Dimitri 13:49, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, with some exit polls maybe, but it would also be obligated to vote only ones, and so change can be made impossible too JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 14:27, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
aec) I have also thought about it, a year (or even two) ago in Libertas... my conclusion was that there should always be a way to control the election results afterwards. I mean that the votes are being published after the elections, so the voters themselves can verify their votes. Cristian Latin 14:29, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Mäöres is a real trend-setter :P --OuWTBsjrief-mich 14:37, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
@Bucu: seems we've been up to the same thinking. We would indeed need a way to verify the votes afterwards, as well as a way to check whether user X has cast his/her votes through e-mail address Y. Can be solved though :) Dimitri 14:40, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
And of course not every user has given an e-mail adress and sometimes (in my case) the "mail me" button does not appear. :) Pierius Magnus 14:46, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Then open a country e-mail adres like for these things.. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 14:58, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Yes indeed. Those kinds of problems can be overcome easily. Dimitri 15:08, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, and like I said, the person responsible for votes, can give some exit polls now and than, because that's what is happening irl JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 15:14, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I support the idea of secret voting ballots, though I think they are of no use if exit polls are given as long as voting is still possible. If the polls are 100% accurate, the effect of secret voting is lowered. If the polls 'can not be trusted a 100%', the election outcome can be influenced by the poll publisher. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 15:19, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, I'm with Yuri on this one. If we want exit polls, someone will have to ask everyone personally and hope they tell the truth SmileD.png Dimitri 15:21, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind telling the truth. Personally, I regard keeping your political affiliation secret silly (I think KGB will agree on this one). But I do see the symbolic value of it and am willing to comply. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 15:29, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
This secret ballot thing is all about trust, so exit polls can be given, but we must respect how the actual things are going on: only in the last few days some minor results are given based on 'trust intervallen' JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 15:33, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
My opinion remains that the argument for adopting secret voting is exactly the same argument for not using exit polls. The regular procedure to me seems "opening elections --> closing elections --> counting votes --> publishing results". Just nice and clean. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 15:36, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I know Yuri: but in real life (i know that one vote irl doesn't change it) some still vote when counting is already started JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 15:39, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I can be mistaken but I believe when they publish those exit polls, the information of the arrondissements where the voting is still going on is not included. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 15:42, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Could be, but some will nevertheless spread their votes! Natural exitpolling is possible JON THE DUDE JOHNSON 15:44, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I wont stop you from thinking of a good system but my position will be based on the balance between 'demand for secrecy' and 'exit polling'. Also consider that when people can not change their votes (made useless due to secrecy) they might wait until exit polls are revealed, giving us a hold-out distortion. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 15:52, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
Then the election time can be made way shorter. --OuWTBsjrief-mich 16:03, January 20, 2011 (UTC)
I think that we may have to sacrifice a little reality for the sake of simplicity. This system seems like it could easily fall apart. I don't want to quit early, but this seems like a heck of a task.

On leadership[edit source]

Crush the Opposition!

The people of Lovia have spoken. Their demands? A strong leader, to take charge, a man who takes matters into his own hands. Such a man excists. He is currently exiled from Lovia, yet he remains alive and going strong. Within hours, those still loyal to him can bust him out, get him here. Will get him out, if the people wish for this to happen.

Jefferson killed Lovia... Our King, did nothing. Just sat high and mighty on his throne, yet refused to interfere. Neither did anyone else. Weeks have passed and one thing is clear; Lovia has practically died. It can easily be turned into a complete anarchy - there is no army, no strong police force, nothing to prevent catastrophy from striking the poor nation and it's poor citizens.

Want Lovia to be saved? Demand the return of Lovia's rightful leader - who was sentenced by the same man who would later carry out the sentence, and in doing so, dealt the deathblow to Lovian society and politics. Yet all the prominent Lovians either remain silent, or talk like a bunch of old ladies, womens chatter, idle conversations, taking no initiative at all. What's wrong with breaking a few laws, starting some major civil disobedience. I say: fuck the law, fuck the establishment! Let us take action! Raise your fists, shine your boots, and start marching, citizens of Lovia! Exiled Leader 17:25, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

I do not think violence is the way to go to regain your power. Though there is much support for you, I think most Lovians would prefer legal means instead of open revolt. What I would support are immediate elections, and a large-scale reform of laws and procedures. HORTON11 20:33, April 26, 2011 (UTC)
I smell sockies? Anyone else? Marcus/Michael Villanova 01:09, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
I do believe Ygo to be the Exiled Leader, though I am glad he is back. HORTON11 02:00, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
We should let him back in, to be allowed in the provisional government- but I might be the opposition to his Conservative coup d'etat.Zackatron 02:17, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
I say: fuck the law, fuck the establishment! As in let the PM rot? Smile Limba.png Regaliorum (S Kitana) 05:42, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
Was the current PM ever really a part of the establishment? The establishment, which he wanted to change, sentenced him to rot, then carried out that sentence. The one speaking out and carrying out his underserved and harsh sentence was one and the same man. Exiled Leader 08:22, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
That only happened because nobody cared - some people didn't like it, a lot of them even protested. But in the end they did not care, because it was after all just a so maniest crisis in an eventually declining Lovia. The judge didn't care he silenced the PM, the King didn't care as he stayed out and you don't care 'cause you did not consider it a defeat. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 09:25, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
Well, it is as it is. Show's over, I guess... Exiled Leader 09:31, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not saying it has to be done now per se. We could find a new 'temporarily equilibrium' and continue on muddling trough until the next crisis. It is just that that next crisis will come and it is very exhausting to always have to jump to a new equilibrium. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 09:34, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
We have never fully recovered from the previous crisis, and then yet another crisis pops up. Very demoralizing indeed. I myself have been very mean and divisive in the past, destroying McCrooke and Walden and providing Latin with a platform to destroy Villanova. Instead of being a hero, the saviour of Lovia, I have been "the man with the hammer", one of the evil villains behind it's downfall. Exiled Leader 09:43, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
The most likely scenario (besides a complete inert Lovia) would be a more conservative, rightist and pro-american course with you or owtb as 'the big guy'. Maybe I might kick in some leftist rebellion, but with most of 'the old regime' gone it wont be much. After that everybody gets bored and things die out once again. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 09:48, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
I always imagined change would come from the likes of Marcus, Horton and Zackatron. That at some point the "next generation" of young, ambitious Lovians would take over. Yet most of their ideas and plans were stamped into the ground, and they apparantly lost interest. If, once again, change has to come from the side of veteran editors, it can indeed only be temporarily succesful at this point. Exiled Leader 09:54, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
No matter where the change comes from, it is only stalling the inevitable. To survive on the long run we need masses of editors, like wikipedia itself. But then the site would grow beyond the control a creative wiki needs to function. I'd say let the beast go, put someone new in charge. Or don't. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 09:57, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
At this point I'd be willing to step down in favour of a Marcus or a Horton, an OWTB (if he wants, and has time), or maybe an Armachedes or a Zackatron. You yourself are also in my mind, Yuri, if you have the time and the trust. But in any case, there will have to be a public debate, conversation, communication, a concencus (more or less) amongst the active users of Lovia. And we will not waste any more time with elections anymore, and formations, all that shit. Takes ages and gets us no where. For all I care we handpick a new congress and fill it with only the active citizens. Exiled Leader 10:01, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not your man on this one. I'm going mental at the moment, I doubt a man worshipping senselessness can ever be a figure of consensus here. Like Roxy Music sings: it was fun for a while... Regaliorum (S Kitana) 10:06, April 27, 2011 (UTC)

Making me premmy is not a preferable choice. Either elections or an everybody-who-is-active-Congress. Those are the two most legal (though mostly illegal) courses of actions. Regaliorum (S Kitana) 10:16, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
My preference lies with the "everybody-who-is-active-Congress". As in: everyone who has edited in the pas week or two will be getting into congress regardless of political stance, ambition, party-affiliation or any of that shit. Exiled Leader 10:18, April 27, 2011 (UTC)
We should really can't we comprimise? UN-Ban Donia, and hold new elections. Make sure there's 12 congressmen and a new PM, so 13 plus the king 14. Very nice no?

News[edit source]

I got some news: artist and local eccentric Kim Dae-su ate his passport out of protest against a police control. He was caught mowing anti-war slogans in the Hurbanova Central Park. Some bystanders allerted the police, which responded quickly. They cut the power supply to the lawn mower and asked Dae-su for his identity papers. Out of protest against what he described as 'sabotage' he ate his passport. Dae-su is yet to determine if he will take legal measures against the police for destroying his mower.

Disappointed[edit source]

I am kind of disappointed with this article. I enjoy reading your articles, but this one seems simply to be nothing but an unpleasant attack on Dae-Su. Sure he's not very active, and he made a stupid mistake with the HAMR thing, but nothing justifies treating a well-meaning user in this way. --Nikolai Koshkov, a.k.a Semyon 12:44, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

No he's not! I'm really okay dealing with you or TMV doing somthing like a riot i can deal. You two keep it in bounds and keep it real. Dae-su wasn't active since the elections and always starts a riot, like Dude seriously? And it's not even in a rightist place, it's in kings!!! The most Progressive-commie state. If he stays active fine, but if he starts saying "Our group has 3000 members" i'll really lose it. Let's kept in bounds Marcus/Michael Villanova 12:50, October 22, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not 'running' Kings, though since my personal contributions to that particular state are enormous I have become a natural authority on the matter.

Our friend with a hammer-fetish, as you call him, Smile Limba.png is just wanting to get a piece of the action. I say let him, untill he takes over entire Lovia in just one day - we gotta keep it a little bit real. Despite all this I am sure he can be reasoned with.

Alternative Vote[edit source]

Just so you know, the only reason that you could oppose Alternative Vote for is being uninformed. Why should a candidate who isn't preferred by 50% of the population be elected rather than using a perfectly functional and DEMOCRATIC runoff voting system? The opposition to Alternative Vote makes no sense at all--besides wanting the two big Labour and Conservative parties to stay in power for eternity. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 16:14, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Your not chosing a person a party, which couldn't care less about your consituency. IF IT AINT BROKE DON'T FIX IT! Marcus/Michael Villanova 16:54, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

I don't think you understand Alternative Vote. You order people, not parties, in preferential order. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 00:54, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

I do see TM's point, however I don't think AV would actually be that democratic. The Lib Dems would get about twice as many seats, so would usually be the kingmaker for government; Labour and the Conservatives would essentially bid with each other to give them the most attractive offer. Result: smallest party has a grossly disproportionate influence. --Semyon 17:03, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

UKIP, and other parties would also play a much larger role. And do you remember when the SDP and CDU in Germany made a grand coalition? Labour and the Conservatives could always do that if they weren't wanting to have the Lib Dems in government. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 00:54, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

I see that point to but what about the point i made above just saying. Also I feel like this leads to multi party governments where no one gets what they truly want. Also lets take the situation right now and say the AV was implemented where lets say in any election Labour wins 255 seats conservatives win 240 seats and the liberals win 140 seats. I think over time there would be a ping-ponging of the LIb dems from the Lib-lab government back to the conservatives-liveral government. I just think it ends up as a bad bad government and there attempt at Lords Reform makes there empty substance look even more stupid. Marcus/Michael Villanova 17:28, July 11, 2012 (UTC)

Multi party goverments lead to more cooperation. Look at the US, they have 2 parties and are basically at a gridlock. More parties equals more compromising, but it becomes easier to pass laws favorable to various societal segments. HORTON11: InboxFollow me! 17:58, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
I was speaking of Lords reform when was this is main part of the article. Anyway. I doubt is actually serves the public well. The US situation is a bad one and might be a reason for an unelected, not final say chamber. The US system fails for many reasons other than that Horton, Super PACS, the american political system is one, before i go on, that can not really be compared to others. No other system in the world is as fucked up as USA's and isnt similar to any elses, maybe France or Italy with a president and a two chamber congress but isnt as disfunctional I just cany see you comparing the two in this case. Marcus/Michael Villanova 23:28, July 11, 2012 (UTC)
Super PACs and not having Alternative Vote are what make the Democrats and the Republicans the only parties in government. It's because people think they will waste their vote if they vote for a third party, and therefore vote for the lesser of two evils. Alternative Vote fixes that! But I agree, this House of Lords doesn't seem necessary. But then again, I don't really understand the House of Lords very well. TimeMaster (talkcontribs) 00:54, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
Well it only works in Lovia but thats it. And with that the vote actually counts, i just cant see people hoping for a BNP or a UKIP or Socialist Parliament people need mainstream parties its order and it works. Marcus/Michael Villanova 01:42, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
A House of Lords is necessary to block anti-democratic laws or laws that are otherwise flawed. But, if the House of Lords is selected democratically and therefore consists of about the same kind of representation as the House of Commons, it's function will no longer work and the chamber will become useless. Compare it to the Dutch situation: Second Chamber = parliament = democratically elected (consists for a big part of populist people and newbies), First Chamber = a checking room = elected by appointment: the Provincial States get together and vote for a list of people, usually very experienced and rather neutral (consists of people with a lot of experience and "wisdom"). Then you would have a functioning system. Though, currently it doesn't really work that well in reality because of the fact that damn 33% of Limburgish people voted Wilders last provincial elections... --OuWTBsjrief-mich 08:31, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
I just think the structure works, nothing horrible has occured in the lords in years, like no important laws have been blocked and most importantly the Lords does not deal with "money bills" so the power of the purse is still held with the people. Marcus/Michael Villanova 17:30, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
I do like the fact that non-politicians play some role in politics. :P --Semyon 18:17, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

To be honest if we are looking at the way in which the Alternate Vote could be more democratic than the first past the post system we have in Britain then there's literally no argument, alternate vote is the more democratic system, with it your vote is worth the same as anyone else's vote instead of yours being worth more in one place rather than another, I mean democracy is about letting people have a say in what's happening and was invented to stop the elite ruling the many (hasn't worked out as well due to ignorance but ho hum) so why would you call a system where the few become more important than the many more democratic than one where everyone is equal. And semyon, the smallest party gaining greater influence such as the lib dems is not undemocratic but what is undemocratic is millions of voters votes practically being wasted because Labour/Conservatives had just one more vote. However there also seems to be a few more sinister arguments against the vote it would seem, such as the belief that more accurate representation creates a system where no one gets what they want and I believe this is simply the kind of argument that comes from someone who would prefer the status quo because it gives them more of what they want instead more of what everybody wants, and may I also say against another argument claiming that the first past the post system produces order that order for the sake of order is not order at all, I wonder if the riots in London were the production of Majority party "order" order isn't decided by which parties can be more totalitarian due to majorities, but by whether the people are satisfied. And I do wonder if these mainstream parties really do work, I would not call two unjustified wars, a huge amount of government corruption and the depletion of the economy in Britain mainstream parties working. In fact I would think that it would be quite the opposite impression that those things would give me. Democracy is about people having an equal choice not about producing false order, and it doesn't damage politics it strengthens it, if you want true democracy then AV really is a step in the right direction no doubt.
