Introducing el mundeu
I'm very pleased to announce Talossa's newest news outlet, elmundeu (The World). We will mostly cover current events, arts and entertainment usually with a little politics but we are starting with special coverage of the election as well.
Our breaking news starts with Talossa's first election opinion poll conducted by elmundeu's resident pollster, Gluc da Dhi. It sees the FreeDems with a commanding lead. If these numbers hold then it would mean a majority government and the Seneschalsquab for Miestra Schiva.
Please see full results in our Talossa Decides election coverage at elmundeu.wordpress.com
Also in this issue:
More election coverage in our Talossa Decides section including videos, individual predictions and all party manifestos or policy statements
Citizen's playlist. What is tickling the ears of Talossans this month?
Cited. A review of interesting quotes from the past month
In Focus. Our feature essay section. Nothing here yet but a brief explainer on what to expect in future
If you are interested in contributing or in participating in our weekly opinion panel for election polling then please contact me. And please enjoy as we build a news organization which is "For No Party. For Every Citizen."
Yeah, I tend to agree with you, this seems like a rather unlikely election outcome. Then again, simply repeating what you have done with your exit poll wouldn't add much to what we already know (assuming you will do the exit poll again). You should read my comments on the poll on the El Mundeu site.
I hope we can further improve our prediction using just polling data. I also hope we will be able to continue after the elections and focus on other topics than party preference as well. However, the first couple of polls I will be contacting people individually, and this is not something I can keep up unless I want to become the most hated person in Talossa.
My hope is therefore that people will sign up for the El Mundeu opinion panel using this form. More info and reasons to do so here.
There is a navigation bar on the top of the page with the sections where features can be viewed. I should probably put links on the front post.
Got it! I was looking at the mobile version, so the nav bar was not visible until I clicked on the little menu icon in the corner. Yes, it would probably be helpful if each of the items listed under "in this issue" had a hyperlink.

WOAH if true!
More seriously, and in the cause of intellectual honesty, I have doubts about the methodology of this survey, even though it gives a very flattering answer. The Free Democrats are currently trying to conduct some much more scientific polling which will either confirm or deny this unexpected result.

I don´t think this poll can really be called scientific. If people have doubts about the methodology or suggestions I'd love to hear them. Anyone is welcome to help. I do worry that having two polling organisations will reduce the response rates for both though.
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Talk about throwing a random factor into the mix!

Lüc da Schir: Everyone who sent me PMs and stuff during the last week, I'm sorry for completely tuning out. Life happened and I was too burned out to check Talossa. I hope to get back to everyone soonish.

Lüc da Schir: Azul Nicola, benvenuto a Talossa.
