Quote from: Baron Alexandreu Davinescu on March 24, 2022, 08:55:47 AM"Requirements for Associate Membership:1. Be a citizen of Talossa.2. Write an essay of not less than three paragraphs but not more than ten paragraphs outlining an active, scholarly interest you have and how you can advance that scholarly interest as an associate member of the Royal Society.Requirements for Fellow of the Royal Society:1. A Royal Fellow will have met all of the requirements for associate membership.2. A Royal Fellow will possess at a minimum the equivalency of a High School Diploma3. A Royal Fellow must declare upon application a scholarly interest and to maintain membership at this level will present at least one lecture annually on that topic.Requirements for Senior Fellow of the Royal Society:1. A Senior Fellow will have met all of the requirements for Fellow of the Royal Society.2. A Senior Fellow will possess at a minimum the equivalency of a two-year Degree from a college, university, or technical school.3. A Senior Fellow will present at minimum one lecture per year and participate in the annual Royal Society Symposium either as a lecturer or presenter."The Society used to be the University and it was pretty different, some years ago. When it was referred to as the University, people would offer lecture series and full courses devoted to things that interested them. The old message board shows a bit of how it used to be: https://talossa.proboards.com/board/30/royal-society-advancement-knowledge I actually taught two classes when that was a thing: one on wiki-markup and another on the writer Ernest Hemingway.I suppose that, technically speaking, there are no existing fellows or senior fellows. The only one who has ever offered a lecture is @Ian Plätschisch , I think, and that was a few years ago. And there's never been a symposium, ever. I'm not sure who's in charge, but nothing's been done with the place basically since they eliminated the University and replaced it with the Society. It'd be great if a scholar took charge and started keeping track of things. If it were me, I'd put @Ian Plätschisch , @Magniloqueu Épiqeu Ac'hlerglünä da Lhiun , and @Ián Tamorán S.H. as sitting senior fellows, since they're people who I know have presented us actual new work in a scholarly way, and reboot the whole thing otherwise with everyone else who'd been involved demoted to associates until they did something.

Quote from: Dr. Txec Róibeard dal Nordselvă, Esq., O.SPM, SMM on April 21, 2022, 01:51:39 PMI've been giving this some thought and I think I will apply to become a Senior Fellow. My curiosity however is what type of lecture should be presented. My expertise is in public school education, but I would think that whatever the topic of a lecture is, it should be at least tangentially relevant to Talossa. Hmm.

Hmm.There are no rules about what can be presented, and in the past only a small fraction of things presented had anything to do with Talossa. I think it's great that you want to join! Really, I think anyone who writes any kind of lectures or essays or whatever should join, and share them here. It was always really cool to see what everyone was working on, and I always learned something about math from @Ian Plätschisch 's posts.

Quote from: Eiric S. Bornatfiglheu on April 22, 2022, 03:41:09 PMI do have a number of lectures available on a number of theatrical topics. Would people actually be interested in seeing some of those things?
