FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Talossan ID Cards

Zooks!  Talossan ID cards are ready and available for all interested citizens!  They're high-quality vinyl cards that look slick and will serve for all Talossan purposes.  They conform to all international ID standards set by the ICAO, and they're machine-readable.  Show your card at any participating business for a discount on goods or services!*

   

In order to obtain your card, you must first pass a test on Talossan government, history, and culture.  All questions are easily answered by looking through the wiki, which you should feel free to use as you take the test.  You will need to provide a photo and a scanned picture of your signature.  If you pass the test with 75% or higher, then you are eligible to apply for a free ID card!

Photo and Signature Requirements
The photo submitted for your ID Card should have a 2:3 ratio of width to height.  The image should be in front of a neutral background, and you should be facing the camera.  Please see the sample card above for an appropriate example.  If you submit a photo which does not meet these requirements, your application will be rejected until you provide an appropriate signature image.

Your signature image should be a clear photo of your Talossan signature on a white background.  If you submit a signature which is written on colored paper or with shadows on it, your application will be rejected until you provide an appropriate signature image.

The Test and Application
A link to the required Civics Test is here.  There is no limit to the number of times you may attempt the quiz; a passing grade is 75%.  You only need to pass the quiz once.

Your information will be kept private during this process, in concord  with our nation's strict privacy laws.  It may take some time for you to receive your card, since they are printed in batches and there may be slight shipping delays.  Estetz patzint - please be patient!

* Malfortunadamint, there are no participating businesses.

Fun fact: this was the design back in 2016, when we first issued cards.  I don't remember who made the design, but boy is it different!

   

Actually that reminds me that Sir Cresti advised us to put that warning on the back -- better add that back in.

Can I just say that I am surprised and delighted that the new Government has not abolished the Civics Test like they said they were going to. Not that it matters, but I'm wondering why the change of heart?

Hm.  I am a deputy leader of the party, and I am not aware of such a promise.  Could you show me where that was said?

Anyway.

The first applications have come through, and once we hit a minimum number, we'll send them off to the printer's.  It's cheaper per card to do ten at a time, so if you haven't yet done so, take the (easy) test and apply for a card!

Done! A few other people are in the process -- I think we'll have seven applicants in the first batch?  Would be good to get an even ten, to save money, but that's okay.
