The only safe place for our finances is in that Legion org then, unless of course Rodders decides to go all jamesw on us.

EDIT: I'm assuming Rodders holds the reins to it.

Absolutely so:-

"Please notice that the organizations won by Military Units in the Military Unit Tournament will continue to be property of the Military Units, and just like Presidents, Dictators can’t touch them either."

I think it is fair to say something will be changed, considering how much thought (or lack of) has gone into this - remember how the weekly rewards had to be changed after 1 whole week of epic battles.  (/_<)

So basically, you all wanna do what I said to do last week...  Should have just done as I said last week and the money would have been moved already!

As I have a few brief moments left as a member of Congress, I will say my bit.

The eUK is now under the (benevolent) dictatorship of CptChazbeard following a gov't sponsored Coup.  This coup was launched to prevent any foreign sponsored Coup (as per what Trico is doing to Serbia)  In the case of Serbia the gov't coup was defeated and we await the next development.

This is where there was an inherent risk to eUK - if there had been foreign malign forces at work, all they had to do was join any of the many MU's in eUK fighting for the government side (not supporting the coup).

I find Dental Corp's position on this extraordinary - it failed to back the gov't sponsored coup, thus risking its failure! IF there had been genuine foreign intervention - DC members would have had to resign and join a coup backing MU.  This position was made the more bizarre by a press release basically indicating tacit support for or hinting at a future coup.
http://www.erepublik.com/en/article/-dental-corps-new-changes--2500422/1/20

This has left many in the eUK believing there were 2 bad choices and no good choices.  Was DC secretly backing the current coup - if so why not join it?  If it isn't supporting it and is planning its own future coup - then maybe we should have all been behind the current coup?

Considering Dental Corps claims it never puts the eUK at risk - I find their failure to either support the coup or publicly oppose it (if there were genuine reasons) very odd.

Pick the bones out of that!!!!!!

As far as I know, DC weren't consulted. We had a thread in our feed wondering what was going on and Frag made what I would say is the right choice in not supporting it. Blind support would've meant that if it was a dead dodgy thing, DC couldn't have fought against it at all. Once again, we make the best possible choice even when completely kept in the dark...

As for DC's actual stance on it, I refer you to the "Not a hivemind" argument. People like Nohjis and Zap are vocally against it, pragmatically I'm all for it until the shit mechanics change/we can stop UK being desirable.

If you thought there weren't going to at least be jokes from DC members about a DC-tatorship then you're completely clueless. You realise we once renamed France, right? And, shocker, it wasn't real!

Considering the number of DC members in Congress with their respective parties and that the MoD is a DC member, we clearly have a non functioning political system in eUK for which we are probably all the blame.  I thought Chaz was an honorary member of DC anyway?

The new military module was thrown on us in an unexpected format and left many scrabbling for answers.  I think Plato/admins etc must be laughing their heads off at the stupidity of what they've done.  So yes there was a lack of communication.

This still comes back to the problem I personally have with DC - how are we to know what is and is not a joke? Some people thought DC was behind the coup!  With great power comes great responsibility - by far our most powerful and important military unit needs to be in a position to lead on something where the military element is critical.

In order to succeed (if that's possible) with the current state of erep, we are going to need unified thinking at the top and a fully organized government and Congress.

Personally I think only by airing views - however controversial, are people going to be able to see what people think and take the necessary steps.

Chaz isn't an Honourary Dentist, he's a fully fledged DC member.  Yoof is nothing more than a DC off shoot MU.  Make of that what you will.
