Rest assured, it went to the correct place.
Right now the module on the site seems to be malfunctioning, I'm afraid. The target is the correct one, it just doesn't log them correctly for some reason.

They should be good as far as I'm aware - Official servers are run by them. You'd probably have more luck talking to them directly, though.

Sorry but I don't see Estonia on the map from the 300 years before Estonian SSR -
 you're RUSSIAN! You've just been taught to think you're not,
 and that's why you think you're some unique Estonian whom didn't exist until a millisecond ago on the universe scale.
Up until a certain point, there were no countries on the map. Estonians have lived where we do now for thousands of years (around 5), however. Our language belongs to the belongs to the Finnic branch of the Uralic language family. That's not Russian, it's not even Slavic.
I'd understand your point if we had similar culture and/or language, but that's simply not the case.

Only to join NATO and EU and lose your 'independence' and then get out of the country to work as a slave elsewhere in Europe and forget your beloved country
We've benefited quite a lot from joining both. Sure, we might have lost a part of our 'independence', but the gain has been greater. To each their own opinion, of course.

So the generation of people whom lived their for 300 years are occupiers - or maybe you're the occupier.
A lot of the Russian population was moved to Estonia during the Soviet occupation. They wanted 1 unified Soviet nation and therefore needed to mix things up. And even if that wasn't the case, 5000 years > 300 years.

Care to explain why these Estonian citizens, who's lands you took over - have alien status yet they pay the same taxes as you?
They've come to our land, not the other way around. And if they don't want to work for our citizenship, we can't force it on them. They had the opportunity to go to their homeland, they didn't.

Shine some light on - are you from the Baltics?
If yes, then why don't you treat your own Russian citizens as equals? From what I know, if you have Russian heritage you cannot receive an equal passport to that of a native Baltic one - is this western beloved equality and democracy?
Yes, I am indeed from Estonia.
Any Russian in here has the opportunity to become a citizen - just as does everyone else in the world if they take the necessary steps.
We did not give our occupiers automatic citizenship after regaining our independence, if that's what you meant, however. In fact, there's around 6% of people in Estonia who've got an alien passport.
Quote
Russia has given everyone equal rights in Crimea, all can get equal Russian passports and in all Russia's region's there are multiple recognised languages, so your native language, like Russia/Ukrainian are never oppressed unlike Russian is in the Baltics
When there's an election, a lot of the adds have both Estonian and Russian on them. Same with street names in areas with high Russian populations. The law states the Estonian version cannot be less prominent, however.
There's been quite a lot of backlash on the recent change where there are no fully Russian schools anymore (mind you, a lot of subjects are still in Russian) - this is not because we want to get rid of their language or culture but rather because of the lack of qualified teachers. I'm sure some other fields will are more problematic, but it's still Estonia and not the USSR.
Quote
I don't agree with this either, how are you possible able to quantify this statistic?
And even then, they're still a minority that have no power on the world stage.
I didn't mean the majority, just a lot of people. Call it wishful thinking if you like.

People don't have enough time to play political games, they barely have enough time to get enough money to survive, never mind thinking about political mind games, so all this we are more moral than yous is nonsense :/
I mostly agree. It's different in different countries, but in western countries there are plenty of people who have enough time to "play political games", but - as you stated - since it's largely simply BS, it doesn't really matter much either way.

If the money has left your account, I'm sure Nick has received it.
And if this is indeed the case, there would have to be a problem with our Treasury package.

I'll see if I can catch Nick to verify.

Excuse me, but most of Eastern Europe is RUSSIAN! It was part of Russian Empire for at least 300 years before the USSR was even formed! It's Russia's land!
Now, I don't want them to take it by force! But if, in the case like Crimea, vast majority are Russian speakers and are Pro-Russian, and they vote on it (you can argue that they were forced on, but that's bull - visit Crimea yourself and ask around, I did), then I see no reason for all the Russian lands not to unite again. Slavs are Slavs and should be united, maybe not under Putin, but united never the less.
Most Eastern Europeans might be Slavs, but they're not all Russian even if they are similar.
And that's to say, not all Eastern Europeans are Slavs. I can assure you, I'm not a Slav, I am a proud Eastern European, however.
The fact that the Russians have occupied the land of our people for centuries doesn't give them right over it.
There's a rough 25% of Russian population here (plus around 3% other Slavs), Russians were given the possibility to go to their mother land when we regained independence (many did, but majority stayedsource).
And we've already had this vote back in 1991. 82.9% of population turned up, 78.4% voted to get out of the USSR. That included a portion of the (then roughly 30%) Russian population.
If they want to be united (and not all of the ones living here do - I've asked), they can do that elsewhere.

Ahem, you think American's or some other nation ain't as susceptible to being manipulated?
Look at how much media time Trump had during USA election - and guess who got into power? (https://www.quora.com/How-big-of-an-impact-did-the-mass-media-have-on-the-2016-presidential-election)
"Seeing is believing" - and with the wide spread of TV it's easier than ever to force people to believe in anything you want, no matter how bizarre it might sound.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." ~ Joshep Goebbels
That's not what I meant. I agree, the people in the US are just as easily manipulated. The difference is that there is a significant portion of the US population that does not (fully) go along with all the bullshit that's out there.
And let's be honest, it's not the TV that's the problem, it's social media and the Internet. Anyone can make a half-professional looking news site and post "The Marsians came to Earth and landed in North Carolina" or something else equally as ridiculous and have a bunch of people believe it. Adding believable pictures or even video of things that did not happen is not really a problem nowadays.

Both of you did it on this site while logged in to your account?

I hope Nick can shed some light into this as I don't see it in the site's treasury.

IMHO Trump is a monkey. Having been in office for a week, he was reported saying something to the effect "I didn't know it would be this difficult". A man like him should not be in public office. I even read this week that because of him the EU and US relations are slacking.
He's supposed to be a role model for his citizens and represent his country on the international stage, but if the US people have such a role model, I really don't want to see their next generation. Additionally, with his unpredictable behavior and statements, it's very difficult for other countries to take him seriously.
He acts like a bully, but a man of his position should not do that.

Just my opinion, though. Feel free to disagree.

As for Putin, I'm fairly certain he knows what he's doing fairly well. He's got his KGB training, after all.
For the passed decade (at least), he's been trying to grasp the lines he is allowed to cross within the international community. He's invaded a number of countries with little to no real fallback, for instance. It is no secret that Russia wishes to regain their federation (i.e most of Eastern Europe). This is their clear goal, but they cannot achieve it in a few years like they did with the 2nd world war.
As for the people in Russia, given how easily they're manipulated if the government controls most of the media they trust, it's not a real surprise to see little to no initiative towards change of regime. The propaganda engine developed within the Soviet Union has not died and is still hard at work there. It's probably not as bad as in North Korea (which - as I've heard - showed a football match between them and Brazil which they lost 1-2 as if they'd won it 1-0), but there isn't really room for doubt in the kind of news they produce.

Just my $0.02

Did you do it through this site?
The last donation I can see done through the site is from August.

It might be that it's taking its time to process, though. When did you make it?
If all else fails, Nick can confirm whether or not he received your donation.

Hi!

Your old account has an honor of 47 while having enough points for an honor of 51. Your new account already has that amount of honor so claiming the honor for the new account would not make a difference.

We do not consolidate points/honor from multiple accounts into one.
