I haven't voted....

I don't consider myself a regular poster, although this is the only other thread that isn't P2TM that I follow.

That and random people voting. I mean, why else would four people vote for me? I wouldn't vote for me, so I don't see why four people in this thread would.

It's going to be a huge hovertank that can also carry troops and also do some more non-MBT stuffs, because that's generally good in its setting.

Basically this. CYOE is a pretty fast-moving thread, which means it's often on the first page of the Factbooks and National Information results page, and occasionally makes the "Latest Forum Topics" sidebar. So chances are there are a lot of people lurking without posting regularly, or dropping in now and then. And in this case those people see a poll and vote, usually for a person that's in the lead, because why not?

Plus, there are a lot more regular posters and lurkers in a thread than one would think. Even with the special polling method used for Military Ground Vehicles, with the link "hidden" in the OP rather than at the top of the page, 51 people voted and almost all of them are pretty familiar names on that thread.

Honestly I don't see why anyone would go to the trouble of making a dozen puppets for the sole purpose of slightly nudging up their vote count, esp. when even the boosted vote count is still less than a quarter of the front-runner. But people have done stranger things on the internet so w/e.

My guess is that people just vote for whom ever they feel draws best. That's why I ain't voting in this one. My favorite ain't on the list.
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

Would this also be used in the atmosphere, or is it nuclear?

Sup

So this is basically my first post here. I'm a pretty regular poster over at juniorgeneral, and some people might be familiar with my work on DA. If not, hi, I'm Pelerna.

Anyway, figured I might just start posting some of my stuff here to get more exposure and to learn more about other styles of art. JG is something of an echo chamber so I figured it'd be cool to start getting to know people on the outside.

Anyhow...
