    Did they actually sing it???
    It would be so cool if a party did actually get together and get a recording of members singing an election song.

    Yes, but they've sadly made the video private now whoever produced it. There was about three of them I think and the song may have been S Club Party.

    Only problem is, most of these people won't have 3 month old accounts with 100 posts xD

    Still, I suppose it brings in more members.

    There are cooler things we would do (MHoC meet + party lightsaber battle was discussed once) but it really would be fun if they did do that.

    Just out of interest, how exactly are elections on here promoted? I've never seen any messaages promoting them or anything like that.

    THat's because it is unconstitutional and I don't believe any amendment passed to allow it

    Although I expect Fez would promote because he would happily delete the constitution

    Members of TSR Labour did a wonderful song as well for one election - I've long said TSR Labour are at the frontier of new ways of promoting this place. :P
    A song? Oh God.

    Ray vs LP in a lightsaber fight, I can't lol:rofl: Which reminds me, we should probably get round to sorting out that meet that was discussed a couple of months ago.

    How is promoting the MHoC unconsitituional?

    On a site with probably 1000s of members, looking at how many votes were cast in past by-elections and the last general election it miffs me.

    Mass PMs are unconstitutional. Nothing else is but may break site rules on spam – that is up to the CT.

    Because it involves unsolicited communication during the election period, which is unconstitutional. Further there was no decline when it was finally enforced.

    Yep, I believe it was S Club 7's 'Party', but I may be wrong - the video's private now sadly, but three Labour party members put it together.

    What I'd give to see LP say "Ray, I am your father" :toofunny:

    I doubt a meet will ever happen though. Not with the current atmosphere.

    I didn't necessarily mean mass PMs. I assume when a GE is about to happen you have a big advert on the side of the site and announcement threads etc.

    Voter apathy must be so high if there are 10,000s of members but not even 300/400 votes on a GE.

    Why would people bother voting in a pretend election for a bunch of weirdos in a shady corner of the internet?

    Same reason as we participate in said bunch of weirdos in a shady corner of the internet - they are sad freaks who have not a lot better to do than sit on their arse using TSR and are currently bored and have had their eye caught by something that looks superficially interesting.

    It is not unconstitutional, and the ruling was made that an amendment should be brought to clarify the situation. The amendment resulted in a tie, and there is a strong argument that a mass PM should be sent next election (and if this doesn't happen, the amendment next term will read 'A mass PM may not be sent' so a tie results in one being sent).

    Lol, in an eastern European accent too:lol:

    Maybe you're right. Even if one party had one it would be nice though tbh, I'm sure that isn't beyond the capabilities of the House.
