So I put together a summary of all the election results found in Politics in the attached text docs. Just the in game date with results of the elections, sorted by org, guild, and position. There's a few interesting things I noted just skimming this though.
There's a gap between around 125CE and 200CE where guild election results were not being posted to Politics, and if Hartstone News is an indicator, not to the guild news either. There is an exception with the Ur'Guard though, whose were posted, but Magnagora's CL election were not posted, unlike the other Org CL elections during that period.
I want to try and compile stats on individual people's political careers, but I need a way to reliably pick their name out of the mess of people's titles and I'm not sure how to do that off hand without manually compiling a huge list by hand. If anybody has an idea how, or better, already has a mudlet function to do that, I'd love to hear it.
I did figure out that @Rivius
likely had the longest single run as a GC at about 84 years followed by @Shuyin
at 77 as Illuminati GC. I'm pretty sure @Xenthos
holds the record for GM at over 200 years and still going. @Celina
has been GC of every Glom guild at least once (and won Shadowdancer 5 times), + Pyro GC. Might be a record?
Funny side note, I spent a awhile trying to figure out a bug with my scan because I couldn't understand how @Morkarion
was elected Ebonguard GC, and then the next election Karlach is getting replaced. And Morkarion doesn't exist anymore??? I blame him for confusing me by not sticking with that weird ascendant naming convention that happened
I'm thinking about publishing an in game book with the Hartstone history after seeing what I can learn about that missing 75 years by reading new posts during that time.
