11% of all the posts on the AFG board are mine

2018-10-23 21:17:24 UTC  

17,000 out of 154,000

2018-10-23 21:17:57 UTC  

You swamp creature!

Why did Windjammer resign in 2014 as VP?

2018-10-23 21:33:20 UTC  


2018-10-23 21:34:21 UTC  

I was hoping Yankee would explain

2018-10-23 21:42:23 UTC  

I am not actually 100% clear myself

2018-10-23 21:42:48 UTC  

since I lost my internet Aug 6th 2014 and didn't get it back until Oct 23rd, 2014

2018-10-23 21:43:02 UTC  

So I only got small snippets of information

2018-10-23 21:43:31 UTC  

At the start of the administration

2018-10-23 21:43:41 UTC  

Windjammer was VP and the Senate was tied

2018-10-23 21:44:04 UTC  

rather than have to choose between me and TNF for PPT, Windjammer tried to punt by claiming TNF had declared too late or something

2018-10-23 21:44:14 UTC  

for a month it was tied up in court while he ran the Senate himself, the first one to do so.

2018-10-23 21:44:21 UTC  

He came under withering fire for this

2018-10-23 21:44:44 UTC  

because it was unusual for a VP t orun the whole Senate, it was only a year ago when the VP was expected to do nothing, and since then had been managing a few slots

2018-10-23 21:44:54 UTC  

Averoes Nix was one of these critics along with Oakvale

2018-10-23 21:45:06 UTC  

and it is part of why they nuked the responsibilities of the VP later that year

2018-10-23 21:45:25 UTC  

Finally the court case was resolved and TNF became PPT

2018-10-23 21:45:43 UTC  

Windjammer resigned at the beginning of August

2018-10-23 21:46:02 UTC  

it was really before the whole nationalized power thing heated up, but I dod know that Windjammer is still angry at DemPGH

2018-10-23 21:46:07 UTC  

so perhaps DemPGH asked him to go

2018-10-23 21:46:40 UTC  

I also think Windjammer's claiming of credit for June 2014 as being all on him, is a subtle jab at DemPGH

2018-10-23 21:46:58 UTC  

either way, he resigned and his seat got Garlanded by the right

2018-10-23 21:47:21 UTC  

which was easy since I was gone and thus unable to really vote on most things as IDS Senator

2018-10-23 21:47:59 UTC  

Lumine, Cassius, Libertarian Spiral (in his unevolved form)

2018-10-23 21:48:05 UTC  

and JCL

2018-10-23 21:48:15 UTC  

had five seats, since the VP was vacant no tiebreaker

2018-10-23 21:48:22 UTC  


2018-10-23 21:48:46 UTC  

This remained as such through the power controversy until Labor lost a seat in August 2014

2018-10-23 21:49:00 UTC  

This reduced Labor to just four seats and Lumine became PPT.

2018-10-23 21:49:12 UTC  

Unfortunately the nominated VP was Tyrion the imperialist

2018-10-23 21:49:30 UTC  

who after labor no longer had a majority seamed like a safe bet to confirm

2018-10-23 21:50:20 UTC  

Actually correction it was Goldwater not JCL

2018-10-23 21:50:25 UTC  

JCL was elected in August

2018-10-23 21:53:13 UTC  

Atlasia sure seemed wild back then

2018-10-23 21:53:28 UTC  

With a ton of big partisan egos

2018-10-23 21:53:36 UTC  

Vying for power

2018-10-27 01:43:40 UTC  

@SilentCal1924 is willing to help
