A million members!? ~8'o That's quite a lot it seems! I would have expected several tens of thousands to perhaps a 100000 at most. Any reason why so many people joined this party, apart from the free wine and cheese samplings? Elemtilas 19:14, 20 March 2006 (PST)

In retrospect... that seems like a lot too. :P I'll definitely change that! Duane 19:17, 20 March 2006 (PST)
Even 250,000 strikes me as awfully much. It would mean that it must by far be the biggest party in a highly politicised province. That doesn't really fit with the description as a minority party. Assuming that, say, 5 % of the adult population are members of a political party, and assuming that it is indeed a minority party, I'd rather estimate membership on 25,000-50,000. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 02:07, 21 March 2006 (PST)
Les Plaines is listed as having a population of 12 million. Isn't 250,000 of that something like three or four percent? Or is my math totally screwed up because I don't have a drop of caffeine in my body at this hour? Zahir 05:40, 21 March 2006 (PST)
No, why? Mind, this is about party members, no about votes. I don't know about the NAL of course, but I wouldn't expect thát many people to be members of political parties. My math was the following: 12 million inhabitants makes more or less 10 million adult inhabitants. Of these, 5 % are members of political party (which is a lot already), we come to a total of 500,000 for all parties. Since the PU is a minority party, I think 5 % it wouldn't score much more than, say, 5-10 % in elections. Which resulted in my 25,000-50,000. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 06:04, 21 March 2006 (PST)
That's what I was thinking, but for all I know that could be scandilously high for a minor party....Duane 05:45, 21 March 2006 (PST)
Nation-wide, the American Snorist Party claims about 10,000 members. And most folks think they're lying. Zahir 06:39, 21 March 2006 (PST)
For a minority party, even a popular one, ~10,000 is rather high. I'd put the figure at more like 5,000-7,000 (and that's being optimistic) --Sikulu 07:19, 21 March 2006 (PST)
In the entirety of the NAL? A nation that must have at least 100 million inhabitants? I don't see it. Even more to the point, most folks think they're lying about their numbers (and most folks are probably right). Zahir 07:25, 21 March 2006 (PST)
Sorry, I was talking about the Parti Unioniste, rather than the American SNORist Party. --Sikulu 07:50, 21 March 2006 (PST)


Isn't it about time to de-proposalize this? Zahir 10:43, 24 May 2006 (PDT)

Yeah, I think it is; as caretaker/contributor for the involved regions, I see no problem with it. I'll remove the prop sig. BoArthur 12:14, 24 May 2006 (PDT)
