The Webspace / Public Use Content Library
« on: May 13, 2022, 03:08:05 PM »
I am planning on gathering photo and video content when in the GTA next month. The plan is to make these images and videos available for public use. Does our wiki have an image or video content library where I could upload the images and videos?

After some time without much new Star Trek we are in the midst of a golden age of Trek thanks first to CBS's programming decisions on the streaming channel CBS All Access and now with Paramount Plus. Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Lower Decks, the Star Trek Shorts, and Star Trek: Prodigy.

Of these new entries I am partial to Picard and Lower Decks. I am curious what fellow Trekkies or Trekkers think of this assortment of New Trek.

And also if anyone else is excited for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. Extended trailer below:

The Lobby / Question on Seneschal Voting
« on: May 01, 2022, 09:28:17 AM »
Mr. Secretary, is this still the case concerning incomplete ranked votes?

I should preface the below with this: Because the possible changes do not affect the outcome, there should be no reason to take further action; rather, it should be information to prevent a repeat in the future.

Unless there is some part of Talsosan law of which I am unaware (entirely possible), the default mode of counting in ranked-choice methods does not invalidate a vote merely because it indicated only one preference. Instead, the vote becomes 'exhausted' if its first choice is eliminated.

Therefore, Taiwos's vote should be / have been counted as a first-preference vote for Schiva.

The law quite clearly states "No member of the Cosâ may abstain in the election of a Seneschál, and shall rank on his ballot at least two distinct preferences, which itself shall be made public. (54RZ23)"

S:reu Taiwos only gave one preference thereby making his vote invalid under Organic Law.

Fora Talossa / First Fora Talossa videos
« on: April 21, 2022, 07:30:19 AM »
The first videos created for the Fora Talossa channel are quite simplistic but important. These are the ID graphics showing before each future video and are critical to the channel's brand. The channel must express its gratitude to @Mic’haglh Autófil, MoFA for donating his design skills to the creation of the channel's logo.

There will eventually be three but I ran into some issues with correctly encoding the third in Adobe After Effects. So here are the first two. They were posted last night for subscribers to get a first viewing opportunity.

The next videos to be shared will be the third ID graphic and an intro for an interview show.

But, for now, here are the two ID graphics videos for Fora Talossa.

The Hopper / The One Milestone At A Time Act
« on: April 16, 2022, 09:25:46 PM »
Whereas, every Talossan goes through meaningful milestones over the course of their lives, and

Whereas, it is a reasonable prerogative of the Kingdom to participate in celebrating the most meaningful of these milestones, and

Whereas, the longevity of each citizen’s membership in the Kingdom is one of the most meaningful of milestones for each Talossan.

Therefore, be it resolved:

That a new section is added under D.1 The Government in El Lexhatx reading as follows:

Quote
D 1.6.: Under the auspices of a program developed and administered by the Office of the Seneschal (Seneschal, Distain, or other official delegated responsibility) each citizen meeting specific time thresholds as a Talossan citizen, may request a certificate, signed by the Crown and the Seneschal. The suggested citizenship milestones are 5 years, 10 years, 25 years, 50 years, and 75 years.

Wittenberg / Potential Reunision Celebration
« on: April 02, 2022, 09:58:21 PM »
Unless I am mistaken, which is always a possibility, 20 April, will be the ten-year anniversary of the Reunision proclamation by King John. This seems like a notable opportunity to celebrate Talossan unity.

This is an odd time for government administration with the ongoing negotiations and then needed transition but are there any plans by the outgoing Government to issue a proclamation or note the occasion?

Edited to add: Or any private initiatives to celebrate?

Florencia / Nimlet Session XIX (Apr 2022-Present)
« on: March 31, 2022, 05:20:32 PM »
CURRENT SEAT ASSIGNMENTS

6 seats - Breneir Tzaracomprada (Senats + TNC)
2 seats - Mximo Carbonel (Governor + RCT)
1 seat - Açafat del Val (FreeDems)

As of 6 April, the Chancery has indicated the certification of the provincial election results.

Pursuant to Section 4(a) of the Florencian Constitution: "No later than ten days following the conclusion of each provincial election, the Governor of Florencia shall have determined and announced the total number of seats for the incoming Nimlet, which number shall be equal to the number of ballots returned in the election, less those returned indicating “Present”, and augmented by one additional seat for each incumbent Senator for Florencia, and one additional seat for the Governor;" The total number of non-Present provincial ballots returned was 7.

Pursuant to Section 4(b) There is also one seat for the incumbent Senator and incumbent Governor.

I hereby appoint myself to the incumbent Senator seat and with recognition that a new Governor will need to be selected immediately at the start of offical Nimlet proceedings.


The total number of seats in the Nimlet is therefore set at 9.
Mximo of the RCT has appointed himself, Breneir of the TNC has appointed himself.

This leaves 1 seat unassigned by the party leaders.

Based on votes received:

Raßemblamaintsch dels Citaxhiens Talossáes (RCT) is entitled to 1 seat.
Free Democrats (FreeDems) are entitled to 1 seat.
Talossan National Congress (TNC) is entitled to 5 seats.


Party leader @Dr. Txec Róibeard dal Nordselvă, Esq., O.SPM, SMM  please advise on your specific appointee.
