I think that former citizens should be mentioned in the Books By NR Citizens article. It's good to our reputation. Patricia was a NR citizen, her book is not only her pride but it's ours, too. Any good that is done by any current and former citizen should bring glory to us.

Therefore I suggest you to undo the removal of Patricia's book.

Hmm...I think that would rather depend on the wishes of the former citizen. An author may appreciate the honor or the exposure of still being on Nova Roma's Web ring or booklist. Then again, depending on the circumstances leading to his or her departure, a former Novaroman may not wish any part of his or her lifework to "glorify" or enhance the reputation of an organisation he or she is no longer a part of, especially if there was any perception of ill-feeling on either side.
The best policy might be to ask departing cives, case-by-case, if they still wish their works to be featured on the site. A little more labor-intensive, to be sure; but less likely to exacerbate tensions if there are any. -- Marius Peregrinus 07:22, 21 May 2008 (CEST)
Patrica Cassia is no longer a citizen of Nova Roma. If you want a page dedicated to books by former citizens then create one. -- Caeso Fabius Buteo Modianus
