Weird.  Well, please just PM it to me as a file attachment.  I apologize for the issue -- not sure what the problem might be.

The form appears to be working correctly, and a photo was successfully uploaded by a citizen two days ago.  Please ensure that your photo is in a commonly-accepted photo file format (JPEG, .PNG, .GIF, .BMP, .TIFF, .SVG) and smaller than 10 MB.  If you still have problems, please let me know.

I'll take a look and see what's up.

Quote from: Sir Lüc on February 19, 2024, 08:29:44 AMPersonally, the A-X should not only have the right to request an advisory opinion from the CpI -- if anything they should probably be the one Government official that's primarily in charge of those, just as the MinFin (and not the Seneschal) has been in charge of the Budget for a few years now. Besides, the Seneschal has the implicit right to also request an advisory opinion by D.2.1.

(Also, there's a typo in that section of the OrgLaw -- Seneschal)

Would the Seneschal have that power? If the OrgLaw says the A-X does, I don't think a statute could assign that power to someone else.

For my money, btw, either one makes sense - just not both.

Quote from: Baron Alexandreu Davinescu on February 17, 2024, 02:17:30 PMThe link to the test is in the initial post.  It is automated, and doesn't require my permission.  If you get 75% or more, you may fill out the application for a card found at the end of the test.  Cards will be processed according to a strict "when I get a chance" basis (or ideally sooner, if the Seneschal has someone else do it).
I have already done the Civics test, but there were problems with the ID card application.
I'm sorry to hear that! Can you tell me what the problem was? Did it not work?

Quote from: DWombatP on February 18, 2024, 07:49:00 PMI'm still a "Prospective Citizen" but took the quiz and submitted the form.
Unfortunately, you are still not eligible. I will ask the boss about whether or not your quiz counts prior to immigration, but you definitely can't get a card until you're a citizen.

There's nothing in the text that specifically conveys that intention, however much you might feel it in your heart.

If you name a list of two people and say they can each appoint two people, respectively, then you're saying they can replace themselves with people from that list in that order.  If you name a list of three people and say that can appoint two people, respectively, then you're probably saying that they can each appoint two.  It can also be interpreted as intended, but it's ambiguous, and it's usually not a good idea to be ambiguous in the law.

Looked like it was pretty miserable for Braneu.  I do not think he was remotely prepared for a scenario where he suddenly lacked the support of both Breneir and myself.  It was way too much work for anyone, especially when he hadn't actually been a citizen for very long.  I'm sorry that my own situation contributed to this.  We are poorer for this loss.  He was a great guy.

I apologize that my absence made this necessary, and I'm glad that someone so competent was able to step in.

The Ziu thing makes sense, but there's no reason at all for the A-X to need to call for an advisory opinion.  The Seneschal speaks for the Government.

Quote6.5.3.1. The Mençéi, Túischac'h, and Avocat-Xheneral may at any time appoint and dismiss one Senator and one Membreu dal Cosă, respectively, to serve as a member of the CRL in their place.

The context change seems to indicate that each officer could each appoint an MC and a Senator, leading to a CRL of six instead of three if they all did so (or allowing any individual to double their voting power in the CRL).  It should instead be:
