These are short summaries of highlights in his life.
Birth -> emergence
Birth -> August 2012
Joined the game on October 2009 and from that day stayed fairly quite on the background. Trying to understand the game he stepped back because of the many changes within the game and the nation(s) he resided in.
On 25 December 2010, he decided to join the Belgian forum. And then started to build his activity slowly but steadily. At the end of 2011, he joined the political party Belgium For Belgians and stayed with this party attempting to bring it out of its slumber and back into focus.
At the beginning of 2012, he was starting to become more vocal in his participation of the Belgian community. Because he thought his efforts had a little effect he resigned from the BfB somewhere in the month of August 2012 and started to search for other possibilities within the game (like economics, Military or the media-module).
August 2012 -> December 2012
As of the beginning of September 2012, he joined the political Party All TOgethers (ATO) and in less than a month he became the Party president of the ATO. Since November 2012 he has chosen to resign as Party President of the All TOgethers and decided to stay on the background of Belgian politics for a while.
Emergence -> growth
December 2012 -> May 2013
From the first term of Party President Tony Clifford he has been appointed as a Councillor within the party All TOgethers. He resigned this position temporarily to help out a friend in another party Netherlands BE Back but then quickly returned to his position as Councillor in the ATO.
At the last day's of the year 2012, he stepped up his political activity for a little bit to assist his party and help out some friends during the last Congress election of that year. Due to this willingness to help he accidentally got elected to Congress member. As of January 2013, he started to serve as Minister of Foreign Affairs in the government lead by BrunoCND.
In the Congress elections of January 2013 he was not re-elected as congress member. On the 6th of February 2013, he completed his term as MoFA and did not take a new position in the next government. As of day 1909 he was appointed a moderator on the Belgium forum. In March 2013 he got himself elected as congress member again. By the end of March 2013, he ended his term as congress member.
In April (after the Country President election) a war between France and Belgium broke out and where he started in changing the balance of some battles in favor of his country. Although his damage was not the highest of all yet a little bit made the difference in several battles. This war officially ended on day 1984 (26th April 2013).
Just as this war ended he was elected as congress member again. As a new Country President was chosen he joined the cabinet in the function of Secretary of Media & FUN. On day 1999 he left the Belgian Civilian Army as captain and took over the control of a newly purchased Military Unit. As the new commander of this unit, he renamed it the very next day(day 2000) and gave it a new logo. It was now named Olympus Belgicae.
On 15th of May, he was elected as Party President of All TOgethers which makes this a total of 4 times that he was elected as party president. With that (and his position in the government and as Congress member) he has reached his highest activity so far. On the 25th May, he did not get re-elected as Congress member.
May 2013 ->
With the election of a new Country President and thereby also a new government he was able to stay in office as Secretary of Media & FUN and continue to do a wonderful job as such. On 6th July he completed his 2nd term in that position and by that he decided to pursue a less active role in the community. On day 2058 he was appointed as a new administrator on the Belgian Forum while still holding the position of moderator which ended on 1st of August 2013. His appointment as new forum-administrator was done because of the retirement of a long standing in-game, forum & IRC community member named Pieter557.
As of 26th July 2013, he was once again a Congress member and found himself once again in a very active role of the Belgian community. At this time his service as forum moderator in the Belgian Forum ended. In the time before Congress elections of August 2013, he decided to try to become less active again as his previous attempt (started in July) did not turn out as he hoped it would be. His first step was not signing up for the Congress and then be less vocal in the party communications.
As of the beginning of September 2013, he has effectively stopped any official political involvement. With the exception of the usual election articles and an occasional comment in the congress area on the Belgian Forum as well as the maintenance of the party's mass-pm, he has no political involvement at all. On September 21st he organized the 2° eRepBelgium Meet. And following that he made a nice article about it.
Growth -> establishment
August 2013 -> May 2014
Until the Party president elections of October 2013 he was appointed as Councillor of All TOgethers again, but from then (October 16th) he was reassigned as Secretary General of that party. After a week of debate within the party, it was decided that tommot would run for Party President for November/December. As predicted he could not stay out of the active political scene yet just after a week of many debates on the forum and a sudden rise in activity within the party he had the need to step back (still remaining in the position of PP) and leave it to the other members of the party to discuss any larger matters.
It was also in November that he was finally able to gain his well earned Media Mogul medal and with the new changes on many aspects in the game, he was quickly able to gain 3 Freedom Fighter medals. In the Party President election of December 2013, he got re-elected. This time he had the difficult task in keeping the balance between several quarrelling members of the party.
At this point, he managed to get the fighting party members to move on and focus on matters of importance within its ranks. It is also at the end of December and beginning of January that he gained his first Resistance Medal. On the 15th January he was not re-elected as Party President of All TOgethers and just a few day's after that he left that party not to go to another party, but just to stay out of it all and only to return to a party to provide assistance to a friend in need.
On Saturday 8th February he was approached with an offer to become a reporter for an international newspaper. In that position, he was assigned with reporting newsflashes about what is going on in Belgium community. His first contribution as reporter can be found in theof that newspaper.
As of day 2296 (4th March 2014) a revised Military Unit started, after some deliberation, it was decided to use the MU Olympus Belgicae as a platform for this commune. The name was only slightly altered (Olympus Belgicae) and it's logo had a small addition to it. On 22nd March he was asked by friends to place his candidacy for the Congress election that time. So he joined the party Union-Unie and placed his candidacy to serve as a blocker to keep the party safe from less honorable people. He did not get elected but as that was never his intention he found this to be a job well done.
Just days before the next congress elections (April) he received 2 requests from his friends. One of them was the same as the previous time where Tony Clifford asked him to join UU to serve as a blocker and to keep the members count high enough to stay in the top 5 of the party-rankings. The second request came from another friend Beaverss Tribute to Raskol who asked him to take over the leadership of the small political party Vlaams Geweld so that his friend could run for congress in one of the top 5 parties. Shortly after he took control of Vlaams Geweld, he noticed the article and other shout-messages that his friend beaver was planning to stop playing this game.
May 2014 -> February 2015
The month May had little important personal activity for tommot. So this will go about the months after that. On day 2389(05 June 2014) he advanced from Division onto Division (revised system 2014) when he reached the XP-level . On day 2397 - 13 June 2014 he became a moderator on the official eRepublik forum. Several weeks before this he was preparing to slow down even more and on day 2398 (14 June 2014) he stepped down as the first commander of the unit Olympus Belgicae. During the RL world cup, there was a tournament organized which made it so that if as many people as possible would join a single Military Unit that this would increase the individual's chances of getting a reward. As a result, all members of OB except 1 (Alexandross) moved to the official state-army BNA.
The months July and August was a time of inactivity and decay in the Belgian community. This also included an almost total absence of political activity. Disturbed by all this, he took an active role in politics once again by firstly becoming a candidate for the Congress in September 2014 and shortly after that he got elected as Congress member. Immediately after the elections he also became a candidate for the role of Chairman of Congress (CoC) with the intention to create some activity in this area. He made a proper introduction article of his new job and shortly after the soon followed Country President election in October 2014 activity slowly returned.
On day 2517 he made his second CoC publication showing a large increase in activity for Congress and the new Belgian government. Politically speaking he served as CoC during a time (October-November) where there was no congress and coordinated with the CP of that time to keep congress matters alive which include maintaining communication with the CM of the previous term. After this time of no congress, he was still serving as CoC (re-appointed as Belgian law describes). At the beginning of December 2014 he started to work on his summary of what is know as the "Newspaper of the Month" series and named the big finale of this series as "Newspaper of the Year"(NotY) where he added extra awards and spread-ed this contest over a course of 2 months (December, January). Also during this time, a new training War was started, but unfortunately(or by design) this was done just before congress election and as a result, Belgium was without a Congress again. Military speaking he gained several medals and new top damage because of this Training war.
By the end of the December some matters were discussed who was going to be the next Country President candidate which was a hard thing to decide as at that point there where almost no players able and willing to take the role. Because of this he stepped up and started to run for his first CP term. Reluctantly he was elected as the Country President in January 2015. Reluctantly because he always believed that he needs months of preparation time to take on this role. Luckily he had good support and guidance from many experienced players. His most notable act at this time was the set-up and signing of which had an effect much later on that year. during that term as CP, he was temporarily removed from the Administrators team of the Belgian forum (as the law book specified). After that term, he was reinstated as administrator. Shortly after his term as CP ended he was appointed as the Prime Minister in the government of his successor MaartenW.
February 2015 -> October 2015
During this time there where little notable personal events in his e-life other than the usual moderator/administrator work and occasionally sharing his thoughts about some internal party politics. he gained a few Battle hero medals and every month he gained a new XP level. On day 2635/8 February 2015 he was appointed as Captain of the 1st Regiment in his MU Olympus Belgicae. On 26 April he gained his 12° Congress member medal/position which he considered his last as after that term he takes a step back from all political matter, even writing election articles. As of last governmental involvement, he accepted the position of Minister of Home Affairs for the 2 terms of May and June. He did only 1 task, organizing the Belgian part of the which was originally conceived by the Irish government. After this point, he only did his daily tasks(work, train, fight DO) and write the Newspaper of the Month articles.
About 5-6 days before the congressional elections of October 2015 he decided to take an active role in these matters again. Shortly after getting elected he placed his candidacy for CoC and got elected for the task. In January 2015 he was still appointed as Chairman of Congress.
October 2015 -> October 2016
This era is marked with even less activity than the previous one. Just a few medals were gained during this time such as True Patriot medal and congress medal but most notable is that near the end of this era a major shift in politics happened.
At the midpoint of October 2016, tommot regained the position of commander in his MU Olympus Belgicae which was discussed in private mass-message long before it was decided. Around that same time, he would also become party president of All TOgethers again (7 terms in this party).
