    Alberta 2012

    Thanks for the feedback, that is useful to know (re the reserved powers), the issues are going to be adjusted in an updated version once I get some more free time to research further. In the version released yesterday, the starting polls has been updated since the early sneak preview and reflects a much closer race. The Wildrose have a significant percent of the vote set at 'leaning' to facilitate for a flow to the PC's during the campaign.

    Alberta 2012

    2012 - Alberta As Premier Alison Redford dropped the election writ, she sets off a 28-day provincial campaign that will send Albertans to the polls on April 23 2012. Redford requested Lt.-Gov. Donald Ethell end the Legislature, setting off what is expected to be one of the most competitive election battles in decades. The 28-day campaign will see the PC leader try to extend her party’s 41-year grip on power, while Danielle Smith of the Wildrose Alliance, Raj Sherman of the Alberta Liberals, Brian Mason of the NDP, and Glenn Taylor of the Alberta Party will all be trying to end the Tory dy
  3. The current subscription system seems to work well at the moment but am always open to new ideas.
  4. Just an idea, Could we maybe have an option to give issues a party specific description as a way to distinguish between different parties who have the same issue alignment and reflect the manifestos. For example; Education: Centre-Left - Default - More funding for State education Education: Centre-Left - Labour - Labour will commit to investing £x bln to schools over the next parliament. Education: Centre-Left - Plaid Cymru - Education in the Welsh Language must be supported - Fund the provision of language teachers. Education: Centre-Left - Lib Dems - The Libera
  5. Awesome. Just a though could this be expanded in the future for mass editing primary delegates and or dates? For the UK/Canada, Congress, the ability to use spreadsheets for candidate names/strengths would be amazing.
  6. Just a thought for election nights if we could have the party colour circle that is on the strategy screen or something similar displayed by individual seat results. Maybe for the elections that have update on % reporting rather than declaration times, the colour circle could display at 100% counted or when a projection is made. It would give a nice TV style feel and eye candy. Thanks
  7. Would that include primary elections also? That would be really useful.

    Alberta 2012

    Hi All, I am currently working on an Alberta 2012 scenario (using the 2015 one as a starting base). Any local insight/ideas are much appreciated Completed so far; Party Leaders, Logos, Regional percentages (2012 results with a shift to the Wildrose to account for their large poll leads) Incomplete; Issues and party platforms, Leader positions Regional issue positions These are the issues and planned party positions interpreted from the manifestos I could find online and the 2015 scenario issues.
  9. That's useful to know, I've sent a PM with the address. Thanks
  10. Found myself becoming more interest in Canadian politics and was browsing on the campaigns site and noticed how many scenarios exist for the old engine and was wondering whether there is an appetite to see them re-made for the PM Infinity engine. It seems a shame for them not to be revived. Here is a list of those which don't seem to have been re-made. Canada 1957 (Patine) Quebec 1944 Canada 1974 (Jack Cox) Manitoba 2003 (Jack Cox) Canada 1988 (Nicholas Lawson) New Brunswick 2003 (Jack Cox) Nova Scotia 2003 (Brian Appel) Ontario 1999 (Jack C
  11. During the Primaries, each state has a 'News Profile', so for example New Hampshire and Iowa provide very powerful news stories for the winning candidate which seems to cause the candidates to focus on those states even if other states hold contests earlier. Is there anyway this mechanic could be used in general elections to encourage candidates to focus on vote/delegate heavy states where they may be further behind such as California/New York rather than the states they are most likely to flip?
  12. Could the strategy issue be solved by linking the 'news profile' attribute for states in the primaries to encourage certain states/regions to be targeted over others. As this can be adjusted by party primary already this could help determine party strategies?
  13. Some other European scenarios would be a really interesting addition given the large numbers of parties, electoral systems and electoral thresholds in those countries.
