  1. But updates would have to be more worthwhile Like PR and MMP

  2. Here we go ... There are a few concepts involved. First is a VotingBlocCategory. For example, 'Age'. Second is a VotingBloc. For example, 'Senior'. Then there is a VotingBlocCombo (see code below). It is specified by a combination of VotingBlocs. For example, 'Senior', 'Hispanic', and 'Florida' creates a unique 'fingerprint' for how various activities (ads, speeches, and so on) will affect that kind of voter. For example, an ad about a leader who has a far-left position on Role of Government will affect them differently than various other VotingBlocCombo's. Then you ju

  8. These social media companies had a choice awhile ago, to become more like utilities or more like traditional media companies. They've chosen the latter route - they are now openly partisan.

  12. This thread is strictly for discussion/posts that relate/announce massive updates to the 270soft Wiki (The 270soft Wiki | Fandom). This source will be more informational than Twitter, as this allows more words in a post.

  14. really do not like a subscription model.. one price even if more expensive than what is currently listed is better than an ongoing price.

  15. Yes. It might be that campaign designers want to remove simple region based issue centres and profiles, because adding in the demographic info makes that up. A big part of making a Voting Blocs system is making it easy for designers to get the relevant info.

  16. Today is the 735th Anniversary of the opening of the de Montfort (or Model) Parliament in the Palace of Westminster in Medieval England, the birth of the entire Western electoral representative form of government as we know it now in it's most embryonic state (let's face it, the Greek poli, the Roman Republic, the Northern Italian mercantile Republic, and the Commonwealth of Iceland were not truly governed anything resembling modern Constitutional governments, and were only really retrospectively referenced for inspiration, legitimacy, rhetoric, philosophy, and terminology - which is highly no

  19. CI is lower priority than PI right now. Updates to PI will transfer to CI in most cases, once an update for CI is released. Ultimately, I want to add House 2020.

  21. Electoral systems other than FPTP and the Australian System for legislative (PMI and CI) elections, comprehensive coalition forming mechanics in legislative elections, parties endorsing candidates of other parties in PI, Convention nominations of candidates for PI elections instead of Primary vote, delayed campaign travel for candidates and surrogates and delayed voting results in pre-flight-era elections, a manageable but present "corruptibility," factor in the editor, a NOTA vote in jurisdictions where it appears, elections of small, collective head-of-state committees instead of single head

  22. I don't really have many wishlist items for features. Just the completion of the editor followed by voting blocs. The improvements in terms of performance, interface and compatibility are great of course.

  28. I personally don't like the paying for each scenario. Then can people pick and choose which to pay for? I think it wouldnt really help and people would just rely on the custom scenarios.

  29. Anthony - The current system works for me, but alternatives are fine too. Maybe this would be okay if you want to move away from a subscription model: Base Game - $15.00 (deals for buying more than one) Editor - $5.00 Future Official Campaigns - $2.50 each

  31. When everything is shamelessly partisan in the United States, and the two main parties are eroding the nation to mud, what credibility or value is denouncing anything in the United States just for being, "blatantly partisan?" That's what I was trying to say when a rant slipped the gate. Now I must have a walk and get a coffee, and calm down.

  34. Ya, I haven't used FB outside of work reasons for a long time. ProtonMail Soverin (what I've now switched over to using fully) is mostly for small businesses or sole proprietors. I hardly ever order from Amazon anymore. Books? My local book seller can get me almost anything I want and I can order from them online. Similarly, local hardware store and so on.

  35. I haven’t been permanently banned from Twitter, but after recent events I decided to retire my account (I made a Gab but won’t use it much until more accounts move over). Been only a few days but I definitely feel less neurotic checking dozens of times a day. Already had stopped using Facebook in 2013 or so, and am trying to migrate to ProtonMail from Gmail (which I had used since 2004). Cutting out Amazon and YouTube will be a bit harder, but neither is really a social media platform.

  36. So I didn't realize that the top posts in this thread were the oldest. I've been missing a lot of stuff, oof. BTW, we've been doing massive updates to the House 2008 and House 2014 pages on the Wiki. Hope y'all like the new look we're building for those pages, it's taking a lot of trial and error. 2014 House Campaign (Congress Infinity) | The 270soft Wiki | Fandom

  37. Also closed the company's Twitter account. What's the point of building a following there, only to have the company restrict communication, or even delete the account because they don't like a tweet? That's what happened with FB - I started a company account, built it to over 1,000 people, then had updates not appearing in people's timelines while FB simultaneously required payment for placement. Bait and switch - no thanks. If I want to pay to communicate, I'd rather companies be forthright about it, and TBH I'd rather be able to communicate with the user base directly instead of throug

  38. I've begun to shift company e-mail away from Gmail and to Soverin. Not only is Gmail a key part of a monopoly that is stifling free speech, but the service isn't really that good. It took them how many years to add a Snooze button? Beware companies that give you free services - there's almost always a cost, whether individually or societally. Similar with Google search - it used to be that their search service was the best, but now it seems worse than DuckDuckGo in some cases IMHO.

  39. Hello all, I'm trying to get some wisdom from the crowd on how to dominate in Senate/House runs for Congress Infinity. Extremely helpful information will be reposted in either blog posts or their own dedicated pages on the Wiki. Any help is appreciated, I will let you know if your help is re-posted. If you provide advice that applies to certain years or scenarios, please specify what year, what team, and how effective it is. If the advice is universal or general, please specify. If your advice can also apply to Congress Forever, please specify.

  40. Momentum is everything. I got Labour to 324 seats (2 short of a majority) but the Tories on 193 by alternating pro-Labour/anti-Tory leaflets every day. I also banked anti-Tory billboard ads just in case they started doing well with momentum. Issues I used were Brexit/Immigration for Labour and Environment for Tories, Labour start off with a negative modifier for Brexit and Immigration but if you lean into it you end up with bonuses. All of this meant that I was able to keep my momentum at a decent level to mitigate against the anti-Labour scripted events, and eventually get the Tories on n

  41. OK, it sounds like some bug occurred after the convention, probably not related to pressing the 'x' button. Again, if you can figure out how to get this error consistently, please let me know.

  44. @Patine I think you've done an excellent job of proving my point. I've asked you for examples and you've yet to come up with anything. Meanwhile, you continue to go out of your way to attack just about anyone on this forum who dares to disagree with you about which scenarios to make. I'm no saint but I must admit that I laughed reading your latest diatribe. If I have ever done anything to upset you, I apologize, but more and more, I am convinced that perhaps you've confused me with someone else. I haven't been an active poster on these boards in YEARS -- probably a good six or seven -- and as
