Posting personal information is fun. Everyone should try it at least once.

If McCain Wins I will personally upload a revenge vid of one my ex’s and drop the link community Ad.

Here’s my analysis:


”Every active user on Forumwarz will receive a bonus of 4 Forum Visits.” vs. ”Every active account will receive a special and unique item.”

Well, sure, 4 Forum Visits would be nice, but on the other hand, this unique item probably is a one-time-only deal. Besides, do you really want to play an extra 4 Forum Visits one day? Skip a day playing, it’ll acgreat timesulate your unused visits anyway. But if McCain loses, there will probably not be a chance to get this unique item again. Advantage: McCain.


”Since I am a socialist, I will tax the richest active Forumwarz accounts by 25% and spread it amongst the poorest active accounts.” vs. ”Since I am a capitalist, I will tax the poorest active accounts by 25% and spread it amongst the wealthy active accounts.”

This is a toughie, if only because of how vague it is. I mean, I personally have been saving up for my third set of Beast0r cables (which mysteriously doubled in price overnight), and all I’ve done today is do jobs from the job board to try to make enough money to get it (and I’m still short). I’d hate to be taxed 25% and basically lose all the money I made today. The thing is, they didn’t explain how they’re defining “richest” and “poorest”. For all we know, “richest” could mean “everyone except the poorest two”, which means someone who just started suddenly comes into a suspiciously large amount of Flezz. On the other hand, the opposite could also happen on the other side, and everyone’s money gets funneled into the account of a level 35 who doesn’t even use his Flezz anymore. I wouldn’t even know which bracket I’d fall into anyway. Advantage: Tie until they explain it better.

”Jobs will give double the points for the 24 hours following my win.” vs. ”I will randomly scatter 100BP over the accounts of those who voted for me.”

...Honestly, do job points really do anything outside of contributing to the “Chai” series of E-Peen? BP all the way. Advantage: McCain.


Bonus 1: The US Election
”I will give out free access to Episode 2 to 10 random accounts who voted for me.” vs. ”Evil Trout will record a karaoke version of the song of your choosing and will post it on Flamebate to mock endlessly.”

Obviously we have much less influence over the US election than we do the ForumWarz election, but let’s bumume the best of both worlds here. For the vets, ET recording a karaoke song would definitely be a plus (I’ve seen how they mock him in Flamebate and IDC. Oh how he is mocked) especially since they all already basically have Ep2. On the other hand, it is free Ep2 to 10 people, which is… REALLY good. (Number crunching time: If Obama does win the US Election, here he’s spreading 70 BP to 10 people, whereas McCain will spread 100 BP to 100 people regardless of his position in the US election. I thought Obama was supposed to be the one all about “spreading the wealth”?) Advantage: Obama


Bonus 2: Friends
”I will give a new E-Peen™ to those who voted for me.” vs. ”Custom titles changes will be free for a special pre-announced 30 minute timeframe.”

Custom titles cost BP, so again McCain is spreading the RL wealth around. E-Peen is also good though, even though it more or less has the same effect as a title change. Advantage: Tie.


Final scores (for all you TL;DR people):
McCain 2, Obama 1, Tie 2.

Also note that McCain’s two points are surefire things if he wins the ForumWarz Election, whereas Obama’s is only if he ALSO wins the big election (which is one of the closest ones in years, so there’s no guarantees)!

So vote McCain. He’ll spread the BP.


Awesome analysis. But I think you only receive 4 bonus forum visits once, not everyday. Also keep in mind that after the launch of ep2 everyone has too much Flezz so probably the majority of us will be among the richest.

Anyway, I would vote for McCain if I weren’t a peenwhore Log in to see images!

So vote McCain. He’ll spread the BP.

You’ll receive less then 1 BP if McCain manages to pbum Obama, so your analysis fails.

Not gonna bother getting sucked into the link-wave that’d occur from the first one, and I’ve gotten “Desert Rose” thanks to AluminumStudios’s now-ashamed-of AMV(s). Then Family Guy made fun of it, so I caught a reference thanks to weeabooity. Jeebus…
