It's all fun and games until someone puts the cat out (who set it on fire, anyhow?), but we really need to start bringing in lessons learned from this process to post here for posterity, before the thread gets slammed shut come Wednesday.

I'm not silly enough to think everything learned will get posted here, but listing some of the high points would not be amiss.

I learned, for example, that there's more to it than just delivering grand and glorious stump-speeches. You have to get out amongst the people, let them see you, interact with them. Go to barbecues. Hoist a beer every now and again. Show them - don't just tell them, but SHOW them - that you are one of them. If a picture is worth a thousand words. A handshake and a grin is worth a thousand pictures.

In conjunction with the above, I learned that constant stumping and delivery of speeches eventually gets repetitive, and turns folks off. In order to avoid that, speeches ought properly to be tempered with mingling, with the weight of the ratio heavily favoring the mingling. People are a lot more likely to vote for one of their own than a distant and relative unknown.

There's more, but that's a start.

What did YOU folks take away from it as far as learning goes?



I learned vote rigging is more prevalent than ever.

For me, it showed that keeping the talk on a light-hearted and yet, serious keel
shows that many ATS'ers can arrive at point that's mutual and adult-minded.
Sure, the high-heels and fishnets are a must, no election can pass by without
someone sitting in the 'Rocky Horror' garb at their keyboard and choosing their
guy for the job...
Er, I shouldn't have wrote that.

Even though I share my ATS account with Boy In A Dress, a creature as some of
you may know, that inhabits a small shed-like folly at the bottom of my garden, we
debated the pros and cons of candidates views and arrived at an amicable destination.

We agreed that I wear the 'gear' on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and BIAD gets
the rest.
I shouldn't have wrote that.

So it's been a nice rollercoaster ride and well done to all who participated in it.
I hope that as ATS Regent, Nenothtu will deliver sound, mature advice to those who
swim in these waters and lets hope it rubs off on all of us.
Not unlike the cheap make-up BIAD sometimes puts on when the evening comes
around.
Roll on Wednesday (He shouldn't have wrote THAT) -BIAD.

BIAD - you are one of a kind



Take care friend.

Thank you for the campaign contribution.
I'll pick up my Stuart Weitzman’s Ruby Slippers next time I'm in the office.
I need them for our election coming up.
(Gosh I hope you didn't stretch them!)

I've learnt that my 'gut' feeling on who I count on as a friend is pretty much spot on, and that first impressions aren't necessarily right.


But most important of all, I think it's pretty important to finally realise who you are, and be at peace with that.
As some members of ATS have discovered

So in the spirit of that ...

My name is Netties Hermit.
And I am a Procrastinator.

That doesn't involve pliers, does it?
BIAD tend tends to wander the garden 'sans-underwear' -as I have often discovered
as he leans to smell the petunias and that last word has him now, shivering in his stilettos.

...And thank you for the kind words.

I've learned that, while the early bird may get the worm, the fat cat finds the early bird mighty tasty!

I also learned that I have plenty of good friends here at ATS who I can count on; a lot of them posted in my thread to show their support and that was greatly appreciated.


Most important of all; Humor can work wonders and people need a break from all the gloom and doom in the world, especially on this site.

A positive attitude shows us that all our problems can be solved if we just work together and have hope that tomorrow will be a brighter day.

I propose creating a term for fear of Regency to be "nenophobia", a type of "nenosis".

I have no doubt that it will find it's way into the DSM-4 by this time next year.
