Yikes. Sorry for being MIA for a week, work has been nuts (just got a promotion with lots of new responsibilities). I am going to be more active moving forward! I definitely havenít given up on this RP.

I made a similar explanation within Atlasia, but I took two weeks or so off the forum out of personal reasons (and have returned in much better spirits), My apologies if the sudden departure was harmful to the game, but I am glad to see it remains alive.

quick note for the Snowguy716, alancia, Adam Evans, ASPN, and Lumine, should you not post a schedule for this turn, your candidate will drop out and be free to endorse a Candidate should a player ask for said endorsement.

Margaret Chase Smith seeks ballot access for the remaining primary states (I was doing so well at keeping track until now).

Thank you! Sadly, with Atlasian affairs taking prominence again (and some projects I have) I simply won't have the time. I would like to officially drop out and endorse Senator Kennedy.

Answering the debate questions and would like to mention that the My Lai Massacre wasn't publicly known until November of 1969.

quick question for the players, How are you feeling about this game? Anything you wish to be improved on? How am I acting as a mod? Any constructive criticism is much appreciated Smiley

One thing I would suggest is that, when you list the polls at the start of the turn, list polls for all the primary states. That way, if players perform poorly in the early states, they can see how they're doing in the later states, which states they're performing strongly in, and where they should campaign without having to wait a few turns to see the later state polls. Regional strength is good, but I feel having actual polls would help.

The only thing I would add would be a list of endorsements that have already been received, as I keep asking for endorsements of taken individuals. Other than that, I think this is one of the better organized RPs I've played!

note to Faust, terp40hitch, Adam Evans, SnowGuy716, ASPN, and JasonHitchcock, get your schedules turned in before 3:30 PM EST. If you need an extension, I'll expand the time limit to 6 PM

I had an exhausting week, so I'm going to tell everyone that the Primary went until 12 AM and Goldwater won by .1% of the vote (final votes scores: 25.4% Goldwater, 25.3% Case, 25.2% Smith, and 24.1% Scranton) while Kennedy Dominated with 77.9% of the vote to Mink's 22.1%. Feel free to post your victory speeches and wait for me to post the next turn. I'm sorry for not posting Election Night, but I was just a little exhausted. Hope this is a good enough explanation

I might drop this game due to stress regions (School is pushing me hard) but it's free for people to adopt and continue if they would like to. I'll try for one more turn and If I don't post within the first day or so in the Gameplay thread, then it's up for adoption. sorry guys.
