    Not a bad idea, I'm worried I might come across as a little biased in such a thread, however. Thanks for bringing it up, I'll no doubt get around to making a thread on it at some point. Of course, you are more than welcome to start your own thread on it.

    Hey, that's a good idea as far as livening up the boards goes - custom achievement icons that may be silly and exclusive in nature. So as opposed to one that everybody gets when they make 500 posts or whatever (common and not terribly exciting), individual ones that are doled out at random and are cutesy in nature.

    Poll Buster, The Splunge Award, etc., etc.

    Having been a crew leader for the 2010 census, I can verify that the Nameless one need only answer 3 of the questions on the form for it to be considered complete enough for submission. My enumerators would have gladly accepted a census form where everything but the name was filled in -- given that we had lots of people that refused to provide any information of any kind, an otherwise completed form with the name missing would have been a blessing. I blame Glenn Beck. We had folks that refused to disclose how many people lived in their homes...

    As do I.

    By the way, I've just come up with roughly two dozen more topic ideas for you guys!

    In addition, I'd like to know your thoughts on election threads. Do you like the idea of election threads? Dislike them?

    Generally ambivalent towards threads on elections, seeing as the system is pretty screwy anyway.

    Given that so few people actually bother to start any threads, anyone going to the effort of making any vaguely interesting threads is welcome.

    As for election threads, I am generally uninterested unless the election has more global consequences than the little square footage where it takes place. So, Bulgaria, not so much. Australia, more so. If they had elections in China, that would be very interesting.

    Thank you for your feedback. I think I'll skip the upcoming election in Bhutan (May 31st).

    However, if you don't mind, I'd like to create one about the upcoming local elections in Latvia (June 1st)? I for one am very interested in just about everything regarding the Baltic States and am currently learning Estonian.

    Heck, I don't mind. Make what threads you want. You might want to temper your expectations as to constructive participation and feedback in those threads, that's all.

    If you start one about elections in New Zealand, I'll contribute. Plus we might encourage Rotku out of hiding, as he studied political science at a New Zealand university.

    If Wales became independent then we'd have nothing to compare the size of natural disasters to!
