|Ok the title is a bit misleading as it suggests that there will be more than one. Things are really busy for me and well I'm rubbish at writing stuff so it takes me more effort than others, but at least this one is finally done and dusted. Well everyone else has kind of stolen my thunder anyway as in what I was going to write here, so my newsletter is kind of pointless, but nevermind.
I just wanted to welcome you all to Citizensrequired.net. Ok its not quite that new, especially given our board move rate, but hey. A huge thanks to Schaf for making this all possible. You're probably all thinking, "oh no here we go again, not another forum to sign up to". Well technically you're right but scratch underneath the surface and have a look around and you'll admit your mistake. This place is the absolute canine's scrotum. In one complete masterstroke the shop and a proper economy has got people hooked. If you haven't checked out the shop already then what are you waiting for! Never has owning a rock or a gnome been so cool. Along with the stocks and the lovely lottery people have been gambling their way to a better fortune. Or thieved their way to wealth... shame on you.
Theres plenty of other stuff along with the main forum. Check out the gallery section to look at pics of meets and various stuff and create your own banner (you know you want to). So once again thanks to Schaf for making it all happen. We did have a go at him for being a bit rubbish as prime minister but he's really come up trumps here. Shame the rest of it was useless. Well done also to Schaf and his government for being the first to be elected for a second term. There were rumblings going on after the results were published but hopefully that's over with and we can look forward to another pointless 6 months.
Please be understanding with Schaf has he gets through the teething problems and tries to add more content. He's already done a lot and I've heard he's actually acquired a life as well from somewhere (although I myself don't believe that). If you can offer any help with the running of things then feel free to volunteer.
As you can imagine its always been difficult with so few of us left. A couple of us have gone on a recruitment drive and we hope some of you will too! We welcome everyone thats joined us either as part of our recruitment or as someone returning from an absence (where have you been!?). In particular I welcome all those crazy people from the Flat Earth Society who have made it across. Not all of us share your views on the shape of this planet but we're glad to have you (well possibly).
Finally I've been toying with the idea for a while about bringing the honours system back in, even before some of you had mentioned it as well, but I've decided to leave it for now. Given that theres so few of us and that we're all working in our own little way to keep this thing going, it's hard for me to just honour the odd people here and there. That and the fact that all the names for the honours i could think off were complete wank. Instead I've decided to just give a shout out to a few people that deserve their name in lights for recent stuff they have done. No shiny awards for you unfortunately, but a King's thanks should be good enough.
- Schaferlord - for creating this place
- JackASCII - for his crazy propanography
- Dead kangaroo- for the awesome rendering of the map of lovely
Those are just a select few that are worth mentioning, but I love you all for what you've been doing. Apart from you for doing THAT. If you think someone should have their name up in lights let me know for my next newsletter (in a while...) and I'll just stick their name in the newsletter as i can't afford the bulbs or even candles.
There's probably other stuff I should say, but well I can't be bothered. Until next time. Cheerio.
