Like, I was hoping that the MinDef would promote the thing?  Or even the Seneschal (either one)?  And then maybe do the thing where people who actively contribute to cultural stuff get officially recognized with pomp and announcements?

I know that you have a lot on your plate.  You're the Secretary of State, you're the leader of the largest party in the election you're running, you're the most active herald in the College of Arms, you're administering Wittenberg... this isn't your fault.  But the Zuavs are very much not going right now, right?

QuoteThe Zuavs rewards activity with pomp and ceremony.  The whole program is already set up.

Cabinet has discussed this. Initiative now lies with the new Minister of Defence.

It's been months.  Is anything going to happen with this?

I guess you missed the recent activity in the Zouavs. Weird, since you commented on it.
The, uh, one new citizen who actively sought out to join, requesting specifically, and has since not received any sort of recognition or promotion for their numerous efforts?

No.  Um.  I noticed.

Dude, using the very rules you set up, the private in question may have done something culturally related within the past week or so, but seeing as I as the Captain personally commended his efforts while at the same time preparing for a national election, you'd think some small courtesies could be made. But then, that doesn't fit your narrative of a do nothing government, even though the Zouaves are not political.

You're not in the Government!  This has nothing to do with campaigning, as you can see because I've been asking about this for six months.  I just don't know why you're pretending the Zuavs are an active force right now.

Point taken. I'm simply pointing out that there is some sign of activity, and I'm encouraged by it. Nevertheless, back to running the election!

In the interest of lightening the mood just a hair, I will admit that my first instinct when reading this was to give a Ned Flanders-esque greeting, but then I realized I wouldn't know how to do it properly (i.e. in Talossan).
