Done, I have removed all limits on attachments. This is not ideal (I wanted at least a 8 MB cap) but we'll have to make do because SMF doesn't want to play ball with anything else than its defaults (or no limits at all).

Edit: ...or not? Apparently there *is* an 8 MB cap after all. Oh well, SMF works in mysterious ways, but at least it works.

The analysis of the election results would be more interesting if it diverged from the maths a little bit to questioning why the large surprises happened. The two "random factors" would IMHO be: (a) a truly sterling GOTV effort from the PNP; (b) the entire Ventrútx family neglecting to vote.

I hope JP and his family are all-right.  Something odd would have had to have happened for them to have not voted en-masse.

Thanks for the feedback.

I think I did mention Ventrutx’s failure to vote, and beyond that I didn’t have enough information to make more conclusions. I had heard a little about PNP’s GOTV but not enough to write about, and I didn’t have time for an interview :P

We really need consistent Talossan translations of party names, by the looks.
Editing posts is my thing. My bad.
Feel free to PM me if you have a Glheþ translation request!

Well, regarding both but mostly (a), PNP was after all a party formed by two former RUMP party leaders. I would not be surprised if some of the more moderate ex-RUMP wing went PNP instead of ZPT (think Castiglha, da Bitour, Txechescu rather than Xhorxh and Holmes). Those that found peculiarism a step too far instead went AMP (Davinescu) or stayed with the ZPT.

Oh, by the way, the Cjovani article was perhaps the best one to appear in La Sc'hinteia to date.

I've not carried out any in-depth analysis and our voters have all decided to stay secret.  I have no concrete idea who is in our voter base.

If I am to hazard a guess though, I would first agree that the more moderate ex-Rump members came over.  The analysis by Luc is probably spot on as to where ex-RUMPers all landed.  The party's right wing core mostly went ZPT while the centrists within RUMP went AMP and PNP.

Second, though, there was a faction of the old Progressives that identified as neo-peculiarists.  I suspect that the PNP managed to get a few votes from that group of people.  If I'm right, then we are probably talking about ex-Progs that did not swing to the Mod-Rads following the Prog split.

As for our GOTV effort.  I'm not really willing to reveal our campaign strategy :P sorry.  We did a lot of work behind the scenes though.  It was an active campaign.
