[WHPR] Forums of eRepublik

Post by Comrade Frank on Sat Dec 06, 2014 8:54 am

My biggest eRepublik pet peeve is community building, IMO the only way to save eRepublik from almost guaranteed extinction is citizen involvement; if America can not attract and keep new citizens we will some day come here and the doors will be locked and the lights off. One of the many social aspects of eRepublik is the abundance of forums on which the citizens of America may socialize, starting with the games own eRepublik Forums; where IMO all congressional forums should be located. The 'official' forum for the 'eUSA Government', the United States Workers Party (USWP), most other Top 5 parties and the American Congress is the donation supported eUSA Forums. One of the first things new citizens need to do is get an eUSA Forums forum account, especially if you fancy yourself as a Disraeli or Lincoln or -god forbid- Ronald Reagan that will become a requirement; but I warn you now...some of these guys swing a mean cane.

Personally I love forums, there are many free forums that an MU or Party may take advantage of and they are great community builders; IMO one of the biggest reasons Easy Company Militia is so successful is their own Screamin' Eagle forum. Almost every Political Party has their own private forums away from the eUSA Forums, while others simply have sub forums. One such MU is the eUS Military which has the eUSA Military Forum, the Federalist Party -the biggest party in eRepublik- has the FedParty Forum; which also houses  SHEILD -their party MU and their new citizen HAMMER Division and War College. Several other parties like the America Military Party, Socialist Freedom Party and the Black Sheep Party have their own private forums -away from the official Congressional Forums of the ‘eUSA Government’ on the eUSA Forums.

One of the reason I love forums is, and I believe the only way to save eRepublik is through the in game Media and on the above mentioned forums; they are excellent community builders. Several times I have suggested to my own party that we should have our own forum, which has always been promptly shot down with the excuse almost always given being that citizens will not join a bunch forums; to which I say horse hockey. The FEDS once had a member named BamaBettie, who IMO was community builder and run their fun department; sadly my transplanted Southern friend has past on -rl apparently greater than gl, yes? She spent many weeks building that department up before I met her, one I visited the FED Forum and on a whim answered a science question she had posted; BamaBettie responded with a welcoming reply and suddenly I was a daily visitor. BamaBettie went on to serve one term in Congress for the Feds and then sadly she disappeared, I often wonder what drove such an active citizen to just up and leave; my hope is that real life took her.
