Presidential Address - July 2017

Postby Hubes » Sat Jul 22, 2017 7:09 pm

I will begin by announcing that this will be my final address to you as Colonial President. The primary reason for this address is to announce that the next General Election is upon us. I do not have the date, but have been informed it will be starting very soon so please make steps to prepare yourselves to get the most out of your voting base.

I will take this opportunity to announce that I will -not- be running for re-election. Two terms are more then enough for an administration to sit in power I believe. I feel that even with my terms being plagued with long term absences, I've had more then enough time to try out what I wished to try.

Two unfinished items I wish to pass on to the next administration:

1) I have spent my time before and during my terms trying to develop some form of council. I was able to get really close...but it was all but dissolved when I took office. I still feel as strongly now as I did back then that we need a functional form of discussion council where we can debate the items that concern us all. Once I am no longer in this office, I may be able to help with this once again.

2) With so few real powers available to the Presidency, I had hoped to establish a few traditions that future Presidents could enjoy. I was unsuccessful...but would still push for for them. The two main items would be:
a) Price changes to the Local Market
b) 1 gate connection to the inner nine per term

The moment I hear which date the elections will start I will get the word out...but I urge you all to get ready now.

I thank you all for your support over the 1 year and 5 months I've served as President, and I look forward to working with you all long after I've left the chair.

:mrgreen: I'm sure, Hubes, you've seen how delighted many of us are that you are doing better medically.

Although there is greater depth to Ascent than to most other Steam accessible games, JAM stopped the design phase too soon.

:?: Are we up to retaining an avalanche of new players ... player support and a diversity of playing choices is the key to success.

I'm sorry but choosing between just Trading, Mining and site development is not enough.

:idea: Site development: Building gates, starbases and settlements and the constant, relentless acquisition for more.

Yes, there is plenty of teamwork in Ascent game play but as you've seen: We could benefit from a more diverse vision.
