Quote from: Açafat del Val on September 22, 2020, 11:35:13 AMFair enough. I'm still of the opinion that these rewards ought to be allowed to be granted on any day with enough notice, even if it'd be better to do so on the actual Florencia Day. But perhaps I can introduce my own resolution amending the law, what having the two wee seats here that I have ;)In any case, I vote PER on Resolution 2020-03.

QuoteThe Resubmitted Dominance of Order ActWHEREAS during a former less active period of Florencia's Nimlet, S:da Cjara Brainerd proposed the following resolution which did not receive due consideration, andWHEREAS everyone likes order, and there is no more lovely thing than a book of rules and a deck of cards, where each card has no numerical value, andWHEREAS Set is just such a game involving a deck of 81 cards and if one card goes missing you have to spend upwards of 12 louise to buy a whole new game, andWHEREAS the deck is built of cards that you have to try and order, not by type or number or color, but by matching a 'set' of three cards that have the same number of differences, andWHEREAS Set with, its odd number of cards having three colors, three shapes, three different kinds of shading, and three number patterns clearly reflects order, andWHEREAS Set isn't really a game anything like orderly as you don't take turns and you routinely end up with an odd number of cards left over, nowTHEREFORE be it enacted by the Nimlet of the Province of Florencia, that this great province does hereby take Set under the metaphorical Florencian wing, take note of the fact that it is just good commerce at 12 louise (15 dollars) that the thing can get rendered completely worthless by the loss of a single card, and does hereby make Set the official game of Florencia.

QuoteNew Provincial Citizen WelcomeWHEREAS, Florencia, like many of Talossa's provinces has faced the perennial challenge of inactivity, andWHEREAS, one potential solution is to conduct outreach to incoming new citizens and connect them with opportunities to participate in the province's affairs, andWHEREAS, early contact between provincial leaders and incoming new citizens may also lead to greater knowledge of new citizen skills and interests.Therefore, be it resolved, that Florencia's provincial officers of state (Constable and Governor) are encouraged to jointly and/or individually welcome new provincial citizens. This welcome message should be delivered to the new provincial citizen within seven (7) calendar days of the Secretary of State's certification of citizenship. Minimum suggested methods of welcome are via Wittenberg private message or non-Wittenberg email. Minimum suggested components of the welcome message include general information or directions to general information about the province.
