Shouldn't we have another election for the UN?
Egypt - October 27, 2007 12:23 AM (GMT)
Yeah, I'll probebly be able to set it up tommorow.
Australia - October 28, 2007 08:51 AM (GMT)
I suggest we refrain from these elections for the time being.
Unless Im mistaken, we have an uneven amount of communist and capitalist played countries(the balance being with the communists), therefore, the results will be skewed to one side, hardly fair. Correct me if I'm wrong.
We have already had several communist "take overs" in western countries because of a lack of western/capitalist countries being played(ie the usa woulda been good to intervene in those things to some extent), lets not slide the role-play even further into a one-sided communist one then it already has.

Perhaps a Socialist World Revolution wouldn't be such a bad idea after all...
Your command is my wish, Premier Manos.

We should wait until every country is taken.

:lol: look through the past threads. No capitalist interventions. :lol:

That's a good point Australia. To solve it, we could have one round where picked nations vote. If the nation gets two-thirds of the vote, he wins. If not, the various sides would argue why they would get a majority of non-picked nations and the mods would make the final call.
Yugoslavia - October 28, 2007 08:13 PM (GMT)
Postwar has 34 active nations (in October):
Albania NOT IN UN
Finland NOT IN UN
Hungary NOT IN UN
The United Kingdom
United States of America
Vietnam NOT IN UN
12/35 are Communists. Hooray 34% majority. Counting only those Communist nations in the UN: 8/35: 22%. But heaven forbid Australia is being oppressed! :lol:

An equally good point made by Yugoslavia :P. If imbalance turns out to be a problem we'll correct it, but looking at that it doesn't seem like we have much.
Australia - October 29, 2007 10:04 AM (GMT)
There was no need to take that sort of attitude. I raised a fair point. But if you want to be a child about it, then go ahead.
The majority of nations that are actually active, beyond a few occasional posts, are all communist nations. :rolleyes:
When was the last time the Vatican rped? Sweden? Iran? Ceylon? Bolivia? Burma? Nicaragua? Netherlands? Saudi Arabia? United States? Argentina? Belgium?
And if countries like Cuba, Colombia, Bolivia and such, were active, we all know they would be ubber commie pawns of the USSR, as always happens in these rp's.
Yeah, just as I thought, they are barely active.
Lets look at the overall top10 posters.
The top three are commies.
Fourth is the UK, which barely posts.
Then there is Indonesia, who is closer to the USSR then the USA in this rp
Syria...USSR sphere of influence.
Thailand? Where is Thailand? Inactive.
Iraq? USSR sphere of influence.
So there you have it, ladies, gentleman and rude high school kid(yugo) who thinks communism and che are "cool".
My point still stands, there is no point having such elections, if your interested in an unbiased result and unbiased rp(which this forum lacks), wait until there is at least an even spread of players on both sides. Because I can tell you, that the way things stand now, a whole bunch of commies will probably be elected, and the biased rp swing even further to one side, all due to the fact there is a lack of players on the western side.
This is a problem this forum faced from the begging anyway, and is exactly why its starved of activity. So spare us your condescending sarcastic bullshit Yugoslavia.

Iraq is not pro-Soviet as far as I am concerned.
Anyhow. Can someone compile a full list of UN members as of 1/1/1952? Mods will be casting votes for everyone to balance out things. This will apply for ongoing elections.
Australia - October 29, 2007 02:06 PM (GMT)
What do you mean mods will be casting votes for everyone? :huh:
Soviet Union - October 29, 2007 06:35 PM (GMT)
Every untaken and inactive state.

If you wanted me to be childish about it, I would've just called you an asshole. That is only if I was being childish.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_member_states
There was a large surge in UN membership in 55'; however, I assumed that the UN was following the RP. i.e. we start with the founding members and than whoever else the members let it.
Founding members of the UN (1945):
Members we have admitted via RP:
Members pending admission:
Hashemite of Transjordan
(might be missing some)
And the Aussie has history on its side. The UN has been blatantly pro-communist in the past. i.e. the ONLY FUCKING RESOLUTION PASSED was a non-binding decolonization resolution by the GA. The only other non-mod action the UN did was admit Cambodia and Laos. halp teh aussies is oppr3zzedzored!11
