Are any other Shards seeing this issue? this is what the Vesper stone says on Siege
I saw it said 0 days yesterday on Origin. I was waiting to see what would happen.
It always does this. The election cycle should begin on December 1st.
This will almost always happen. The countdown is a set number of days, but the election cycle is set to start on certain dates. Its just sloppy code.
Currently, elections will ALWAYS start on June 1st and December 1st.
Thank you all for the replies, I thought maybe it might just be borked for Vesper on Siege, due to them changing the Governorship mid term.
Last year, the we got up to -4 days on the stones. It seemed very weird.
So on the 1st we'll begin voting? In the meantime do the governors retain their powers.. Including special titles granted to deserving citizens such as myself?
I still have the Powers, and Xanzu still has the Title i gave him.
Governors will still be governors until the day before the election ends, citizen titles will remain until that time as well.
Elections will always start on the 1st of each specified Calendar month, June and December. The timing that controls when everything kicks off is based on the actual day and month numeric values, while everything else is based on timestamps in seconds that we then have to do math on to extrapolate the # of days left for the gump that's wonky. Something seems to be mismatched, will look into it for the next election so we can avoid confusion.
Don't forget too that incumbent Governors will have "Governor, " prepended before their name for this election.
So if I cancel a character's citizenship tonight, a join a new one in 7 days, get the city loyalty, then I can run for office with that char? I want to run on Origin, but realized I am a citizen of New Mag, but want to switch to Britain (which is currently vacant).
So just to be clear, people can sign up to become Gov starting Dec 1? Then voting for a winner begins a week after that, Dec 8? Then voting lasts a week until Dec 15 when the person with the most votes wins?
I too was a bit thrown off with it showing 0 days for two days and now showing -2 days to election cycle.
you should be able to do that, yes
Rico for governor...la

For which city?
Thank you for reading these post and communicating with the players. It certainly tells me the DEVs are working for the better of the game, and listening to us. I appreciate it and it sure shines a bright light on the future of UO.
Because just printing "The next election cycle begins on (December/June) 1st" is too hard. Better start extrapolating days from seconds just in case the user doesn't know what dates are.
