You guys should really consider reducing the time needed to wait to nationalize a corporation from 5 years to something more like 3. By that point, I'm sure you wouldn't have to worry about people joining, nationalizing, then never playing again. I mean, I've been waiting for such a long time to nationalize a massive company that is stealing many jobs from my state, and who's owner leaves my messages asking him to pull out unanswered.
| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 04:27 pm |
Those corp workers stealing your jobs are paying u each mth to be there.Lighten up and enjoy the benefits of having the added cash paid to ur country,lol.
i would ignore ur ass too
If u was to nationalize one of my corps, dependin on my mood u could well find ur country in ruins next time u log in
| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 09:48 pm |
I read this, having absolutely no clue that I was the owner of the corporation in question.

| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 10:12 pm |
very well, i will nationalize your corporation, than shut it down.... and i will be done with private enterprise forever
i wish you would have been as cooperative as the other CEO and just left... but if you want to play the anti-socialist card, so be it
| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 10:19 pm |
Josef, you should listen to what Blue and Scarlet are telling you. They are trying to help you.

| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 10:26 pm |
so be it
| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 11:10 pm |
dude we agree with keto and scarlet, besides your my neighbour and ive got our eye on your expansion plans
| Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 11:10 pm |
Nationalizing stuff is silly. It's expensive, it won't make you any more money as a state corporation, and it makes some people mad. Just let it there and don't allow any more CEOs in.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 12:30 am |
If he wants to play only with State corps, let him.
Nevertheless, I do not agree with this suggestion.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 12:33 am |
On a side note, my one private corporation is worth more than all his state corporations combined. As I said, try me.

Do not provoke the new player. He's not accustomed to this place's dementia.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 01:01 am |
ahahaha....wheres my padded room i think i need to lay down a while
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 01:39 am |
im not worried, if anything happens to my country, i have a large federation to back me up
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 03:03 am |
i doubt its that big or good enough
Be careful who u decide to play with
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 04:08 am |
Commie, go tell your federation to try me . . . I'm waiting to be tried!
Actually, I've heard I taste delicious, but that's beside the point.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 04:43 am |
you can't exactly attack me, seeing as i'm under protection
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 05:36 am |
econ warfare is a better option
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 05:43 am |
i really don't see how you could, seeing as i get most of what i need from my common market and personal corps.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 07:52 pm |
i said it earlier...becareful which ppl u play with
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 10:10 pm |
whatever..... its tedious talking to you, so i'll just wait a few more months until ive reached 60, nationalize/close the corp., and ill never have to talk to you guys again....
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 11:19 pm |
You know, I think I was the guy who moved.
| Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 11:53 pm |
Nationalizing private corps, right?
You do realize that private corporations are good for the economy, don't you? You basically get revenue for nothing, since you don't have to micromanage the corp.
| Friday, December 17, 2010 - 04:42 am |
private corporation is evil in my opinion... hence why i think nationalizing is a good thing
| Friday, December 17, 2010 - 06:13 am |
Some people should really get a decent understanding...
Anyone with a CEO on KB, I'll pay for all costs of someone hostile bidding all of this guys corps.
| Friday, December 17, 2010 - 12:23 pm |
I would take you up on that offer BaneslayerAngel.
But I would rather not stoop down to his level.
| Friday, December 17, 2010 - 01:38 pm |
Waiting for that bid . . . can you even afford $1T, Josef Lenin?
| Friday, December 17, 2010 - 10:37 pm |
my corps. aren't public, hence they can't be bought
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 01:34 am |
dont be too sure
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 06:57 am |
Mr. Josef Lenin, I would like to inform you that your country is situated in the sovereign territory of the Scarlet Police State. Please vacate the continent of Draca Mixor immediately. Contact Scarlet Fountainhead for details.
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 02:05 pm |
Frankly, I do not see how any self respecting Federation would support Mr. Lenin's behavior. If he were in mine I would vote him out!
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 04:13 pm |
To be honest, I am in his federation. Our federation is undergoing troubled times, there are factions within, and I suspect some of them to be multi-accounts. I don't know what my next action on this will be.
Anyway to Lenin: Listen to the veterans here. They know what to do. CEOs are good for the country, as they produce more revenue. You are currently losing money. Just because you don't control something, doesn't mean its evil. They make more jobs for your little socialists in clinics, and back to schools.
To Scarlet: Once your economy gets going, have a war to find out whose better. I guess it will be a missile/air/navy instead of ground then. Anyways, keep this argument going. I find it rather amusing.
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 04:47 pm |
Sounds like good advice.
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 05:24 pm |
I like funkmaster. Great poise in time of uncertainty. Are you the federation leader?
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 05:41 pm |
I am curious as to what is the Official United Nations position in this matter.
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 05:59 pm |
No one really cares.
Nationalizing corps is down to the individual player.Some dont like, other dont care.Some will take action against you, some will just cry on the forums.
If you nationalize corps its only hurting you, your payin top dollar to the guy u took it from.
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 07:14 pm |
Point well taken. From your experience do you think it is a good policy to Nationalize one's own state military corps?
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 10:07 pm |
It is only a matter of time before my military machine is operational and I have reached the War Level necessary to attack. When my 21 days are up, I will be in possession of three slaves and have attained War Level 3. However, I predict that Mr. Josef Lenin will be unable to reach the War Level necessary for me to be able to attack him as it would require him to actually win more than one war against a C3. I doubt he could take just one C3.
The official stance of the United Nations federation is irrelevant. If they support him, then this might be interesting since at least one of them might expand beyond a secured main and obtain War Level 3 (of which I am highly doubtful any of them will achieve). If they do not support him, Mr. Josef Lenin will be safe behind his secured mode and inability to achieve War Level 3.
He is not the federation leader, but nonetheless, I agree with your assertion.
I would actually be curious to hear an official response.
P.S. Check my CM name on LU.

Fine, I'll allow limited free enterprise....
| Saturday, December 18, 2010 - 11:56 pm |

| Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 12:02 am |
i said limited, and i mean limited
| Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 12:07 am |
| Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 12:11 am |
no CEO controlled, only publicly controlled
| Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 12:55 am |
How unfortunate for you.
| Monday, December 20, 2010 - 02:12 am |
You know, it makes perfect sense that his username is Josef (Stalin) (Vladimir) Lenin. He hates private enterprise!
| Monday, December 20, 2010 - 04:20 am |
that's the idea

lol. I'm going to KB ... some damn controversy!
| Thursday, December 23, 2010 - 04:51 am |
Well apparently, Lenin has left his country now.
| Thursday, December 23, 2010 - 06:15 am |
| Thursday, December 23, 2010 - 07:03 am |
He was probably tired of you talking. Way to chase another newbie away from the game over nothing. Morons. How much do you value your corps? He paid you multiples of profit that would have taken you many many sim years to earn. I don't get it.
| Thursday, December 23, 2010 - 02:33 pm |
Don't expect a scrub to understand.
| Saturday, December 25, 2010 - 09:06 am |
Agree with Laguna and Psycho Honey..but, Scarlet said he was 'bored'...which goes back to war level problems, leveling problems, 'mode' problems (war vs. peace), secured/war protection problems, and if that weren't enough..boycott problems, 'free' vs' full' problems, et...
| Saturday, December 25, 2010 - 09:32 am |
Scrub?! Compare my main to yours... We can tell who the scrub is. Hands down. You're an over pompous geek who needs a reality check. Scrub? Pfft. Coming from you is a real joke.
Ok... I'll lol
| Saturday, December 25, 2010 - 09:34 am |
Way to bash a n00b Scarlet. Old habits die hard. Or do they.
| Sunday, December 26, 2010 - 09:34 am |
First, name one other n00b that I have bashed. This is clearly new, and is yet to be a habit.
Second, pompous geek? Thank you, but it almost seems like you're implying that this is a bad thing.
Third, please compare my main to yours. Your GR main is absolutely no comparison to mine, so I assume that you were referencing LU:
I will assume again that you are not referencing score, rank, or game level. Now, it would appear that even with massive loans your per capita profit barely surpasses mine, but I assume you are only referencing the raw $1T difference. In either case, this is not a measure of skill, but size. If country profit is the measure, you would be relying on a large population advantage and massive cash reserve to compensate for your lack of skill.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 03:05 am |
I've been away from SimCountry for three years, and when I come back, I see that John Fire and Wendy are still at each other's throats.
Ah, SimCountry. You never change.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 04:06 am |
Yes Pompous geek. I went back at my countries over a month of inactivity. Many were not logged on to for more than that. And yes I was referring to my LU main. I use offworlds for evil purposes. Hence the trashed state of my countries.
Place YOUR LU main country or any of them to my main and see who is the scrub. That is where both of us have been active. There is no comparison. 2 weeks on offworlds and the result would be the same regardless of the lead you have now.
Welcome to "Inannas Temple"
War Rank: 208
Finance Rank: 2
Nuclear Power: yes
Nominal Value 341.22
Don't make me laugh... You suck then, now, and forevermore.
TBH Pompous Geek is a very unwarranted compliment.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 04:50 am |
1. Your silence is noted.
2. Don't make me blush. Your compliments are really too much sometimes.
3. My score, rank, and game level are all bigger than yours. However, I'm sure population losses, unnecessary military costs, and heavy dependence on large cash reserves is a better measure of skill.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 04:48 pm |
Score is dependent on level, I've been to level 13 it is expensive and unnecessary. You being at level nine is the only reason you have a higher score or rank. Score and rank mean nothing. I beat you in every category that matters, And I did it in far less time than you've been tinkering with your empire.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 04:49 pm |
Oh... can you say finance rank #1
I can. Have you ever held a number one in anything?
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 05:06 pm |
Oh, excuse me for making muuney chump!
And you call yourself giving economic advice. You don't have a country in the top 100 in finance.
| Monday, December 27, 2010 - 09:26 pm |
Okay, war rank in a secured main is a good measure of skill as is finance rank over per capita profit. Enjoy your financial services and population losses!
| Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 04:52 am |
Aren't we talking about your secured vs mine?
I still beat you in per capita, and you admitted yourself. What other excuse do you have, scrub?
I make enough coins to buy 1 million workers every two weeks. Lmao, nice excuse for being a broke sim player.
| Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 04:54 am |
Using 50 million pop countries to "crab" off the game's natural pop growth is really lame. How about how I carry more costs for health and education than you and still kick your candy arse in ever conceivable category.
Then you bring up game level and score. Wow. Talk about appealing to a naive audience. Maybe the newbies will buy that one.
| Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 07:00 pm |
What does "crab" mean?
| Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 09:34 pm |
Meaning you are too cheap to buy a million of pop here and there. Kinda like always wanting something for nothing. Always a hand out, but never putting in, and so on. Do you get it now.
Excuse my slang, the Philadelphian comes out of me at times.
| Tuesday, December 28, 2010 - 09:37 pm |
Okay, I am the cheapest guy I know. ;)
| Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 12:34 am |
Last time i saw crabs, the doctor gave me some cream
| Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 04:00 am |
So do you mean you put cream on your 'pop'?
| Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 05:49 am |
One day, you'll both realise you could make even more money if you spent the time that you spend arguing with each other optimising your countries :P
Seriously though, neither of you is ever going to concede, so what's the point?
| Wednesday, December 29, 2010 - 05:56 am |
"One day, you'll both realize you could make even more money if you spent the time that you spend arguing with each other optimizing your countries :P "
I make enough. I'm just not that greedy. Some pay for the clicking. I pay for the forum. The game is redundant to me at this point. The forum evolves and is worth my membership.
I make give or take 130 coins per month in my main how much more do you suppose I break my head trying to make? I don't need more I need less. I have too much money, too many damn gold coins, and too many damned countries. Perhaps I am using the forum as a clever way to find a particular use for them. Had this ever occurred to you?
| Saturday, January 8, 2011 - 04:59 pm |
Laguna, I like your attitude and the way you run your corporations.
But...I have a confession to make:
I feel a bit badly. I began to nationalize a poorly run CEO run public company some time ago. Maybe it was the moon. Maybe it was the moonshine...whatever it was, does my action hold up to scrutiny?
The guy told me before, when I threatened to do this that he did it to force investment funds to sell out. They don't seem to be selling. His answer defies logic. Well, the company is in debt and I think there is something else going on. So, after ten years of watching this perfectly good company destroy itself due to a policy of full employment and low production...I decided to click the button, and then click the next few.
I have no tax in my country. My state corps are certainly not paying the bills...rather, it's the country resources that keep me afloat. But, that public corp is giving me almost no benefit and taking up a lot of workers. If he messages me and tells me he'll increase production, I'll rescind the order...but to me, it seems like he doesn't really pay much attention.
Anyway... Ms. Psycho. I have a few state corps that you should buy. Just so we can cement this love-love relationship into an economic transition.
| Saturday, January 8, 2011 - 10:01 pm |
It is Mrs. Psycho. And I buy not a single corporation unless it is from gamemaster. I do run pretty high production numbers though.
| Sunday, January 9, 2011 - 01:51 am |
Yes Mrs. Psycho. I do have a country controlled public corp that is about to see it's P.E ratio go through the roof. oops...insider trading tips posted on a forum. Buy some shares, and then you and I will be inextricably linked.
