I have always enjoyed bantering with Brown on #religion-chat, he is also -like me- a great fan of obscure parliamentary nonsense. I don't think anyone has a bad word to say against him, because he's always unfailing polite to everyone! A real asset to this game, and definitely one of the 'characters' on the Discord server.

One of the few people on PolUK I had the good fortune to meet in person. Despite our clashes online, I've always considered Max quite a fun and nice person.

Dan is the author of one of the most iconic meltdowns of PolUK history which still feeds the community with plenty of laughs. He also has an uncanny ability to land on his feet, even when he should fall on his face and that should not be underrated.

I can count on one hand the people who truly know how to play this game, and I count Barclay as one of them.

Brutally honest and never agrees with me on anything, but one of the best players I know.

Marty’s contribution to the game over many years, his fastidious commitment to mentoring newer players, and his considerable work both technically and politically as an administrator do him enormous credit. He is one of the big “thinkers” of PolUK; a second-to-none strategist and policymaker.

Also… BUMP!

Kandler has been a delight to work with in the Tories this round, providing bold ideas in Cabinet and significantly contributing to defending our policy agenda in public. I also like how he's made Juliet Manning into a distinct, memorable character.

More generally beyond this round, Kandler brings a definite flair to his characters, is very good at policy and is one of those players who can change the course of a round through IG actions.

The mood has definitely got less toxic this past week or so. Couple of spats but not as bad as it was
