# 1 FDC Voting Rights?
08-30-2012, 05:23 PM
Hey all,
Just hit level 4 on diplo for Doffing, and was just curious about the whole "FDC Voting Rights on DS9"
Is it something that was removed long ago, like a lot of other things?

Not sure if removed or not, but it never worked right in the first place.

T4 Diplo people could vote on a visitor to the station who gave out free transwarp tokens to whoever spoke to him.

But as I said, it never worked right so don't worry about it too much.

I'm not real sure how active it is any more. I haven't been there to vote on anything in a year or more. It's one of those things which got caught in the FTP transition crossfire. The voting used to be every other hour, at the top of the hour.

I really hate to say this, but yeah, it was one of those really cool sounding things to get the attention off of some bad decisions that they really never did anything with. Which is something cryptic does a lot. I would actually love it if they revamped it for something that actually made a difference, like Polling the players on new content or such. letting the players vote on what content hits first, what ships or costumes they want next that would be a nice touch.

I never had it work out for me in the first place. Then again, I started at F2P, so maybe something was lost in the transition. I was pretty confused at tier 4 Diplo and ended up running around like an idiot on DS9. If there was an accolade for running laps around DS9, I think I earned it.

I did the same thing the first time I was looking for Quark's. Kept running around and around expecting it to be on the outside of the ring, not the inside. Finally broke down and checked a map on stowiki. Felt like a fool.

We all did, we all did.

Seriously, it sounded quite cool, and then you ran a forum search and found out it just didn't work.
