MindArk: Be the president of Virtual Reality...

Discussion in 'MindArk' started by McCormick, Nov 22, 2015.

  1. Why no thread about it yet ?

    Anyway, another PR stunt. "President of Virtua Reality". Register and vote.
    He/She will be president for 4 years and get the chance to be re-elected. Seriously...4 years ?

    If you register on "http://www.presidentofvirtualreality.com/" you get the following mail :

    You will Receive updates Regarding Presidential Candidates and Voting Deadlines.


    Soon, ofc... ;D

    Mr Simmonds registered http://www.presidentofvirtualreality.com/ via godaddy. Why godaddy ? Whatever...

    The president will get payed by generous MindArk. ^^
    (not right at the beginning though ;p )

    Gratz to our president already. Who will it be ? What rights will he have ? Can he outvote MindArk ?
    Create your 2nd account now to fake the votes to hell, either via ingame terminal or via various fake email accounts...
    ...weighted votes will also come in handy here...+final judgement of MA... xD

    Guess this is the end. We get a president. xP

    Want to become president yourself ?

    Send an email to candidate@presidentofVirtualReality.com with the following information:
    -Real name, address and contact info
    -Copy of National ID. ( Driver's license or Passport)
    -Your full Entropia Universe Avatar Name.
    -Optional: Include a Short manifesto and Bio that we can publish

    Cool.
    I assume Mr Simmonds won't win if at least one arbitrary other candidate pops up. Alas, doesn't matter.
    Seriously: who would be that stupid to pay 1000 US$ for the chance (of how much %?) to become President of what? Virtual Reality? Entropia Universe? What perfidious stuff do this guys smoke?

    Q. Will I get paid to be the president of Virtual Reality?
    A. The first President of Virtual Reality will be an unpaid position. Subject to preapproval by Mindarks’ Board of Directors, travel and accommodation expenses for official presidential business will covered, as will other presidential initiatives approved by the board.


    An unpaid job. So probably Mr Simmonds will win. LOL!


    Remarks:
    Hmm, at least a presidential palace as official residence should be offered.
    palace.
    palace02. (for Kristin)

    Furthermore a set of suitable vehicles for land
    Maybach.
    hummer.

    water
    yacht01.
    or even something like this
    yacht02.

    air
    flying fortress.

    and space
    spaceship.

    some staff for organizing events
    events.

    some security guards
    security.

    special clothes and accessoirs for official events (like a white rose to compensate the smell of blood?)
    clothes.

    Or even the possibility to speak to the people via ad screens

    big-brother.


    Latest at this point I would sign in, pay 1000 US$ and more for a big campaign. But I'm afraid all this wishes won't come true. So I am out ... again.

    I recommend to reintroduce the old voting terminals and ask the customers directly to vote about suggestions (democratic). Or at other hand use the deed-system and bring it to real life (undemocratic - because "Who pays set the rules!"). I think it's again useless balderdash.

  4. lol, the romanian Palace of Parliament? really? :)))) I'm afraid it's taken lol But gl getting the political mafia out of there , u have all my support lol
     
  5. "To be able to vote, you can use your CLDs. Put CLD into presidential terminal and choose your president.

    CLD / CLDx will change into CLDy after voting and can no longer be used to vote and/or aquire Land.

    That would be the safest way to vote. And totally unfair as well xD

    Weighted votes.
    An unknown strongbox as gift for every voter.

    And then what ?

    MAybe MArco BehrMAnn !?!?!!11³³²

    And no, president of Calypso would not have been enough.
    President of the Universe...no no no...
    President of Virtual Reality !!!111³³³



    el presidente.

    -MindArk and the Casino are working together, eh ? I SEE !
    Already felt strange, when David Simmonds tried to make it 100% clear, that they have nothing to do with each other...at all.

    -Empaticus joined. But "Hub Culture" and "Planet Employability" are missing from the list ?
    Where is Crystal Palace and Monria ? ;)
    Anyway, what a long list of trustworthieness. x'D So many companies joined... ;p

    [sarcasm]
    -So, MindArk did deliver a complete "Citizenship AND Votingsystem"....all within a reasonable timeframe. With El Presidente on top of it...
    [/sarcasm]

    By just asking for 1000$ of each interested person...not promising anything special...not even payment...

    and remember :
    Without a fee there might be hundreds of thousands of candidate names for voters to sort through. ;)

    WOW, LOL... ;D

  13. Of courseeee actor, filmmaker, music maker and entrepreneur NEVERDIE applied for president.

    3 striking sentences of the messiah, some weighted votes + final judgement by MA...aaaannddd....mission accomplished :
    "We are now in the renaissance of VR," said Jon NEVERDIE Jacobs. "I envision a thriving platform that creates resources rather than depletes them which is the unfortunate climate in the real world. Those who are productive in the supply and demand virtual economy will be financially compensated."

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...-for-virtual-reality-president-300190239.html

    Yes, we can ! I need alcohol...barrels of alcohol...


    neverdie 2015.

    He's actually totally right in that one. Oculus, Microsoft, and many many others are doing amazing things with VR. So is my employer (Unity).

    It's about 15 years or so since I had high hopes for VR changing the world, but I don't think the world was ready at that time. It seems to be ready now, with hardware and software able to deliver stuff that was impossible all those years ago. And we all have front-row seats on that ride :)

  17. Neverdie always used daydreaming, wishes and fantasies in his words. Even beyond the Marco-Behrmann-Style.
    Stuff that never ever became real. It sounded nice and dramatic in 2004.
    THE nightclub of the universe ? THE RockPop Planet ?
    With an active playerbase below the 6000 and only some dozen addicted high depositors, this is all pure bullshit.
    Mindark never did real mass advertising, because they dont want it, because they cant handle it.

    NEVER forget that MindArk is still operating in the background, when our President of Virtual Reality will go nuts
    with words again.

    I dont talk about Virtual Reality in general,
    but this President thing, inside a MindArk operated game.

    Mindark...I mean, what big steps do you expect here ? Oculus does no longer support DX9 and sadly Oculus has the most $ for development now (facebook)
    and still looks most promising.
    But do you really want to explore VR inside a glitchy and blocky 3D attempt ? That was possible in 1994 already.

    20 years ago, the 1st 3d glasses, together with games like Descent, already felt awesome.
    They created an immersive feeling and a headache, just like todays versions. ^^
    So, todays VR just feels like "Attempt No. 2". (ya, you got to re-start somewhere...again)

    As long as "VR glasses" or Microsofts "3d room" arent fed to the mass market just like a TV or a PC, I dont SEE the need for a "President of Virtual Reality" anytime soon.
    lol. Especially if a organisation like MindArk is operating in the background.

    WOW and LOL wont join this crap.
    But sure, when names like "Planet Employability" or "Empaticus" and a simple online casino are mentioned, the whole world is listening... ;D

    The only benefit of this VR president thing is for us to sit back and enjoy the silly. Not to knock ND. He will do his best and I will never knock the guy's enthusiasm or dedication or will to action. All in all it is as much as (bad) PR stunt by MA though as the Entropia will plan to plan to plan to support VR crap.

  19. Next PR stunt, Motörhead on Rocktropia ahe poptropia will probably get some kind of "Update"now.

    There will be interviews that Neverdie was "working" together with Lemmys son Paul Inder and how private investors made Rocktropia become alive.
    Thanks to the "President of the United Virtual Reality", Segnor Neverdie. Musician, film maker and friend of Lemmy... *sigh*

    I wonder how many more temp. avatars will be created because of that...but since MA no longer publishes these numbers, we will never dieaehhh know.

    Gratz for playing with the fire.
     
  20. 1st guy up, begging for money :D

    1500$ via gofundme.
    Where 1000 is the ballot fee and the 500$ for his internet campaign (twiiter, rss feed, homepage, video etc.)
