No idea what image to use for most of you, but for @wolves and @LegolasRedbard I'm going with forum pictures.

I don't know what image to use for @SalmonD88 or @jvikings1 because Salmon has no forum image and Jvikings is the GOP logo (and that would be a little out of place for a Libertarian candidate).

For @Bruce Fischer I'm going to stick with the Emmanuel Macron winking picture... for reasons.

Also Salmon, what is your gender? Everyone else has it in their forum profile but it's one of the things needed in the game for some reason.

Need positions for JVikings1 too.

What exactly is being done here? Is this like vcczar's scenario a while back where forumers had "avatar candidates", or is it more complex than that, or what? I'm a bit confused.

It's based around a story I made leading up to 2040, containing characters from that story, but also populated by the members of the forum.

Well, since I consider myself honestly unelectable, and I'm more of a critic of ideologies and candidates and a historian than politician material, I think, if I did fit in, I'd want to be one of those mean, critical, but pointed and educated (not uninformed, vitriolic ranting ones) pundit and interviewer, to be honest.

Which set of issues are you using?

This is based on a personal expansion to 2016 I made but never released, so it has all the default 2016 issues but also with Minimum Wage. I'm probably going to change a few things like maybe replace same-sex marriage with same-sex couple adoption because I think that's the battleground the social conservatives are going to retreat to on that.

YES!! Except Patine will be in his 70s. But that is perfect.

I'm a male, and since I can't find anything to age one of my pics, I just picked the one below. Oh and my rl name is Steve Almond

I started 7 days before the election so maybe things would have been a little different with more time. I know not all of you agree with each other but I tried to pack as many forum users into the tickets as possible right now.

Republican Ticket: @Reagan04 / @LegolasRedbard

Democratic Ticket: @SalmonD88 / Chelsea Clinton

SirFishesalott Ticket: @Bruce Fischer / SirLagsalott (me) (also sorry @wolves I put you in the SirFishesalott party so I couldn't include the three of us on this ticket)

Libertarian Ticket: @jvikings1 / Austin Petersen

Trump Ticket: Ivanka Trump / Eric Trump

 

I can try another test that starts in August or something for more interesting results.

Detailed results: forum free for all.csv

Ok so, First, Patine probably should be Left-leaning. Second, YES I WON, 3rd, make my name John Taylor.

Perhaps, but I'd be fully willing to thrash, excoriate, and lambast left-leaning candidates, too, for many other reasons...

This was very hard to do. Spent every dime I had and more. Might have done better if there wasn't a power-9 scandal a week before the election that I failed to flip (and someone spun to have a -2 slant completely ruining my integrity momentum).

SirFishesalott Ticket: SirLagsalott (me) / @Bruce Fischer

Democratic Ticket: @SalmonD88 / Chelsea Clinton

Republican Ticket: @LegolasRedbard / @Reagan04

Libertarian Ticket: @jvikings1 / Rob Paul

Looking at the current line-up, you should run as a Perot-style Independent (or the proposed run by Bloomsburg). The Republicans in this line seem VERY right-wing on EVERYTHING...

Actually, LegolasRedbard surprised me as a socially left wing and fiscally centrist Republican. But those are hard positions to have in the GOP. It'll play out differently in everyone's game I'm sure but we'll have to see.

I also need to moderate the republicans in this scenario.

Also my position is left on unions

It'll take the money of a new Rockefeller to successfully run that kind of campaign where the GOP seems headed.... :P
