Proposal Results


Uti rogas / censeo / consentio = 13 = GCB, QAN, GCL, ATS, MACI, PACP, GVM, AIP, DAI, SLT, GPD, GPST, MHMFF

  • Comments:
DAI: It's great to see these being established. We need to do more to encourage physical groups.
AIP: Congratulations are due to the people of Aquincum for approaching this milestone in their community's development. The proposed plans seem quite realistic, as they have the involvement of numerous citizens and years of practice holding the type of event they plan to continue in the future.

Antiquo = TDD

  • Comments:
TDD: While I support and cheer the concept, I fervently protest naming it after a living Nova Roman. It reeks of monarchy. If that portion was sticking from their charter I would endorse it whole heartedly. A discussion group is one thing, but the official name of a city?

Abstineo = 0



Uti rogas / censeo / consentio = 14 = GCB, QAN, GCL, ATS, MACI, PACP, GVM, AIP, DAI, TDD, SLT, GPD, GPST, MHMFF

  • Comments:
TDD: I commend and encourage their efforts. As an addendum, I must protest yet another emergency vote with so little time for discussion. It seems everything is an emergency and last minute this year. October is half over. When are we calling for candidates for election?
DAI: Highly functional group worthy of formal recognition.
AIP: I actually was the lone vote against the proposed charter within the Sodalitas: linking the moderation policy to that of Discord seemed to me to be a potential mistake, since we don't know how their policies may change in the future and the major forum is on Still, the charter allows itself to be amended easily in the hopefully unlikely event that this or anything else becomes an issue. This group has been active and has a lot of potential for the future. We should approve it.

Antiquo = 0

Abstineo = 0
