wendy, nikki's a new player they wanna learn the game why dont you share your take on it with em, then they can share their own drama with the rest of simcountry!

both are great feds, with great players, either one would be a good choice!!!

feds without enemies and a resonable means to defend new players are good. Feds are bad when they have enemies and new players get caught in the politics of the fed at large. You can learn just as much from the forum and human interaction in chat than being assed to join a fed and get caught up in their nonsense. Free nations surpasses that of IDC. Nevertheless both seem willing to take on larger issues that new players should avoid. All I'm saying.
Best start hands down for any new player would be to look under the general tab, and find
"Wildeyes leaving guide to everything"
I know for a fact the largest and well known feds copy and pasted the information in that guide to their fed forums with public admissions supporting that fact. Feds are the not the only means of learning, and certainly not the wisest course of action. Back in the day when you had feds like Valde... now that was a fed worth joining. The UC of old... maybe even AF of OLD... those are feds worth joining. Given the recent events with the most peaceful, large, well known feds in the past few months, feds are highly NOT recommended for new players.
Just my honest opinion, and only because Chiwoo asked. I hope that helps Nikki.

Thank you. Perhaps I will study the game before looking to join a federation. Thanks for the input.

Neiko, I'm sure we have space in Insane Asylum, as well as a very informative forum

Thank you for your gracious offer, Jess. I think I will be a loner for a while, learn the game and then pursue a federation.

I am welcoming CEOs to build in my country, Vengeance, should workers permit. FMUs, Electric Power are some of my favs.

We'd be happy to have you in the IDC whenever you feel you're ready to join.
I noticed that Wendy recommended the UC of old as a federation to join. I should like to mention that I played a very large role in building the UC of old; I was chairman during the formative months and Director of Foreign Affairs after that. While the IDC isn't the same federation, it is a federation of the same spirit built upon my experiences leading and helping to lead the UC of old.

Thank you, Scarlet. The outpouring of support from all of you is wonderful and appreciated. I am happy to know that there are several good federations willing to help new players. I appreciate all the fed offers - from budman, you and from Broken Ambitions. I need to discover where I would like to go with this game before I decide what fed would be a good fit for my goals and aims in the game. First I have to tackle this eco challenge, and challenging it is.
Thank you everyone for the builds you have sent me. Once I get established and am able to contribute likewise, I will return the favors.
