Has anyone actually become the top canvasser at least once?

Interesting game but I was pressing choices as fast as I can before time ran out and hardly reading anything. I made plenty of mistakes by clicking on the wrong thing. It would have been nice if time froze while choosing and resuming when dialogue was taking place.

I thought time did freeze during conversations... I'm pretty sure the time counter was just decreasing one per screen of dialogue. Although it did seem like the max-confidence bonus followed real time.

Hmm the ending came sooner than I expected. I mean yeah we saved the forest, but I only got to be the top canvasser once - bloody Nolan kept beating me!

I got top canvasser just now, isengrin. So it is possible, just really hard.

Am I the only one who was confused by the ending?

Maybe I selected some wrong dialogue choices somewhere along the line but,

Nolan kept saying that he was going somewhere and was going to miss me. I had a conversation with him after one's day canvassing where he said that they were trying to fire him and kept giving him rubbish locations to canvas, but the next day he was top canvasser again.

Was there a sub plot I missed while trying to save the forest?

I didn't like the fact that the more you clicked, the faster your time ran out. So if I wanted to make more money, I had to waste time on fewer people and just *hope* that my confidence actually DID have an impact (which it clearly didn't). If I wanted to talk to more people, I had to use the fewest choices possible because every click ran down the clock and there were so many things that had to be done at the end of each session, you lost time really fast clicking through the paperwork and pleasantries.

So what's the best strategy? Try to get closer to $100 from fewer people? I was always rejected at that dollar amount, so I quit using it. Try to get $5 from a ton of people immediately? That always kept me from making my quota. Is there a strategy that works, or is it just luck?

On the positive side, the conversations with the other canvassers always made me laugh, because I know all of those people!

I actually worked as a canvasser one summer in DC! This game is very true to life, especially the part about being thick-skinned. Even though I was able to be the top canvasser in real life, I'm afraid I couldn't duplicate my results in this game.

My only complaint is that this game should be harder. Hopefully that might discourage people from taking jobs based on harassing people on the street.

I saved the evergreen forest. Almost got fired along the way though. I have to agree with fledeye. I think there's some sort of weird subplot I missed. When I finished the game, I was left with unanswered questions.
