This is a portrait Gallery of the Great Arcadian Dictators of our time. A chance to look back and see who has lead our nation and to what heights they took us (and to what depths of depravity they lead us).

I hope past and future dictators will add themselves to this list and link to their regime in some way.

Arcadians I call you to post your comments in 'celebration' of our great dictators of the week.

That is all.

Here I was trying to learn how to be Dictator of the Week.

I am sure all of you my Fresh Corianders where pleased by my work.
As seen bellow I spent most of the Arcade Treasury on an overtext.

I tried to be a good Dictator, I really did, but I was underminded by my servants.

The rebellion to my leadership created this The Underailable Threadgoo

I will go down in history as the only dictator to be hung, drawn and quartered and then burnt to ashes cry at the end of my week.

He came, he saw, he was confused.
For the first time in Arcadian history, the dictator of the week, was also elected Lovespreader of the week.

Many orders were issued, much gold was delivered, several uprisings were crushed. Thus was the week of 1nf1n1ty.

As dictator, I...
became immortal by commissioning video game reviews in my honor,
revivified Project R.E.S.P.E.C.T.,
hung up some new art in the bedroom,
appointed several Project R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Czars,
encouraged Arcadians to play some games,
was regaled with several tales,
and counted all of the awesome stuff people did during my rule.

As the greatest and most powerful dictator, my accomplishments included killing the previous dictator, followed by allowing myself to be murdered by the following dictator.

I also started a war, set up holidays and stocked up the dictator's wench supply

Oh by the way, there are rumors of a BGG chat uprising near VGG arcadia, and I beleive that with in a week they will take over my power. If you do not see me again I bid you farewell. If a week has passed and no one has overthrew my power I'll pass dictatorship to my alternate username CrazyElwoodcool. ninja

I bid good arcadiating (acrading?)

Hello minions.

For too long have the reigns of power been held slack in the slimy grip of the masses.

I'm here to change that.

I bring you VGG QOTD!
VGG QOTD Feb 16: What is the hardest puzzle you have successfully solved in a game?
VGG QOTD Feb 17: Do you like pixelated/retro graphics in modern games?
VGG QOTD Feb 18: Who is the most annoying NPC in a game?
VGG QOTD Feb 19: Best NPC sidekick in a game.
This is just a taste - there will be more, many more to come!

I bring you interactive fiction games in the Arcade!
You are standing in a cave...
Again, there will be more - as there should also be more participation in the IF guild. So I decree!

And I bring new users to this side of BGG! (Because we all know, this is where they should be.)

So follow me, my minions, into a glorious era of increased activity!

For a dictatrix's work is never done...

I quickly filled the power-vacuum after Caroline's reign and was the 41st Arcadian Dictator. devil

I offered bounties for various tasks around Arcade and the Geek: Calling all bounty hunters! GG up for grabs!.

Also during my reign, the Arcade reached 50k posts, all thanks to me of course.

I was the Dictator #42, quite fittingly. I brought over a lot of lolcats and tried to get some new victims users to VGG. I think I and my loyal scheming subjects managed to lure a few new to VGG people posting here, at least once.

I also urged everyone to drink more tea or do something nice to someone. Make themselves and someone else happy. And to share a wisdom. To pay it forward Microbadge: Pay it Forward

After a bad counting start, Arcadian dictator #43 took to the job like he usurped it.

My goal was to foster warm fuzzies, a sense of community, and getting in touch with your inner tyrant.

Before Gberdex's benevolent leadership, the Arcadian Resistance overthrew dictator rule and Arcadia became a free nation!

We rallied under our new symbol of freedom.

In a spirit of fellowship and freedom past dictators were granted amnesty by the provisional government.

Amnesty for Past Dictators

It was a time of happiness and celebration!

As the 46th dictator of Arcadia, my first duty was to make sure everyone new of how grand and amazing I was. No point in ruling if people don't have an amazing leader to look up to. So I did it all for the morale of the people. And I even got the people involved.

Your Emperor demands a portrait

But what good is a great portrait without a story to go behind it? So once again, I let the citizens use me as their inspiration.

Since a picture is worth 1000 words, I need someone to write me some words...

Now that I as drunk with power, I decided to force the people to amuse me.

A simple request...

Now I was on a roll, and my greatness was starting to spread. I figured, why not make a little side business venture out of this. It didn't really catch on.

Yes, more demands...I'm hungry

It was finally time to get some work done, to bring the greatness of Arcadia up to my level. But unfortunately time here is short. All of a sudden, the next guy shows up thinking he can do a better job.

Now that I have your attention

Oh well, I had such grand plans, and Arcadia would have been at the most prestigious glory days of its history. Sure, many citizens would have died from all the toil it would have taken, and I would have accepted all the credit. But sometimes you have to look at the big picture, because there are causes that are greater than ourselves. Perhaps one day an ancestor of mine will get to continue in my stead. Until then, I grovel at the feet of our new leaders.
