13801  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Swearing in of New Officeholders on: June 08, 2009, 11:16:38 am
I resign the office of Attorney General immediately upon swearing in as Senator.

I, Marokai Blue, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of Senator and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, so help me Dave.

June 8 Edit: I updated the main introduction post with links to the Constitution and all regional constitutions, the officeholders list, a link to the Statute, reorganized the layout a bit, and updated party member numbers in accordance with the Department of Forum Affairs.

July 23 Edit: Updated numbers according to the Department of Forum Affairs and removed the Horse party from the list. RPP logo added since Swedish's logo is the apparent winner in the vote that was held.

August 26 Edit: Updated the registration requirements to meet the Intelligent Voting Amendment.

August 27 Edit: Updated party member numbers and the new chairman of the RPP.

When do you take office?

I'll be swearing in within the next hour or so. I wanted to do some final things as AG.

I believe several of those votes are valid, isn't the law one week, not ten days?

It is 10 days. Even says so on the ballot.

Yes, I know it said so in the voting booth, but PiT pointed out something earlier.

The result thus far is no surprise to me, although a few individuals were sort of disappointing.

It looks like one of your votes are invalid, as well. (Specifically: Mint's)
what is wrong with mint's?

Voting booth rules state to be an eligible voter you have to registered on or before the 26th. Mint registered on the 28th.

     That's odd. Atlasian law states that you need only have registered at least a week before the scheduled opening of the voting booth. That would allow Mint to vote.

I was under the impression it was 10 days.

     Nobody wiki'd this amendment, but I am certain it passed. I'm looking for the tracker thread to determine that for a fact.

     EDIT: The tracker thread.

Is he wrong?
13805  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Workers' Compensation and Training Bill (Law'd) on: June 08, 2009, 09:54:23 am
Wiki'd

If I were here, that silly amendment might not have passed. Tongue

Final Message from the Attorney General:

For my successor, whoever you may be, I wish you the best of luck. I've tried to stay on top of all my obligations of this job, and revitalize parts of Atlasia that have become outdated and bothersome, such as the Wiki, or the Intro.

I hope whoever my successor is, you continue this work. I hope you will keep alive the R.O.W. Project, and either work with me (as the creator of the thread) & the President to maintain the introduction thread, or make a new one all on your own. I hope you believe, as I believe, that a properly updated and accurate wiki is absolutely critical to Atlasia's continued existence, and that you can dedicate yourself to it, as you would the legal work you will most assuredly have to handle.

Who do I want my successor to be? Well.. of that I am unsure. I hope this person is active, and takes the job seriously, as I was and did. I hope this person believes in the position of AG and doesn't use it to catapult yourself to higher elected office, and loves the job. Whoever this person is will have my full support, and if requested, my counsel. Best of luck to you, whoever you are.

Thanks to everyone in Atlasia,
AG Marokai Blue

As it appears I've been smashingly elected, I'd like to thank everyone who voted for me, and put their misgivings about my attitude aside Wink

I will work hard to bring more debate to each and every bill I can in the Senate, and represent the first solid liberal alternative we've had since the great former-Senate Lief sadly lost re-election. I look forward to joining my future colleagues as soon as the results have been formally declared, and I wish my successor well.
13809  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Pacific Voting Booth: Constitutional Amendment to Prohibit Capital Punishment on: June 08, 2009, 12:08:48 am
Aye
13810  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: Pacific Legislature Official Thread on: June 07, 2009, 11:43:55 pm
I sign in support of all of them, I think it's healthy for all bills to be heard.

I'm happy for you Smiley Just try not to get your hopes up too much.

I wish you wouldn't go, Duke. Atlasia will be a worse place without you in it. Sad

A gay strip club, maybe. It'd be a night he'd remember for the rest of his life. Tongue
Will he be one of the performers?


One can only hope. Bring plenty of singles.
13814  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Is the Republican party better or worse off in 2009 than it was in 1977? on: June 07, 2009, 04:44:44 am
Republicans are worse off today, if only for demographic reasons. They appeal only to white conservatives, a part of the population that is shrinking.

On the other hand, the Democrats have a stranglehold on blacks and are moving quickly towards the same point with Hispanics (thanks in large part to guys like Tancredo and Limbaugh) and Asians. Three groups which will become the majority of the US population by 2050. 

Of course. It irritates me that anyone would actually deny this with a straight face and offer no counter-explanation.

The Shining.

It's sad to think that The Dark Knight will win.

DC realized she had two different biopages on the wiki, so I removed one of the duplicates from the category page on her request. But I don't know how to delete pages, embarrassingly..

So if anyone could put this page up for deletion, I'd appreciate it.
13818  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ATLAS: Atlasians Thinking, Leading, Acting, Solving on: June 07, 2009, 01:02:51 am
     An idea I've had was to have a noticeboard of upcoming elections. That way when a new member joins they can see what offices there are to run for. If they run a campaign for some office, then they help contribute to a more active Atlasia & hopefully will get to see the fun that can be had in being an active participant.

That is a fabulous idea and perhaps a great responsibility to give to the SoFA. That would keep everyone more organized, allow the SoFA to keep track of his own work, etc.

     I was thinking of adding it to the Introduction to Atlasia thread. That way when they are referred there, that information is there alongside everything else they ought to know when getting started in Atlasia.

I would be happy to add that, if I knew when the elections were myself Tongue

My form of protection will be a big roll of duct tape and a pole or a tree.  It works wonders!!

Those are some incredibly disturbing images you're giving me. Tongue

My ex sternly warned me tonight that if things do work out in that direction, we'd better wait for anything until after the wedding or she will kick my derrier.

Hey, watch your language, mister.

I don't mind participating in them (even if they are a little predictable and repetitive) but they're sort of ruining a board meant for political discussion..
13822  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Going on vacation... on: June 06, 2009, 08:54:35 pm
Have a fun and safe trip!

Yes, use protection. Smiley

Sadly, someone who believes there's a tracking device in her head is more sane than Coburn or your average Oklahoma "Democrat." So, Sheila Bilyeu.

I'm not really used to this laptop, but it shouldn't my activity to any noticeable degree.

It already affect your activity, you forgot to put a verb in your sentences.

Sad Wow.
13825  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Marokai Blue for Senator: We Need a Balance on: June 06, 2009, 04:52:38 pm
Notice: Marokai's cat has just ruined his laptop completely and utterly. Thinking about killing it. Shouldn't affect my activity but it pisses me off immensely. More updates to follow.

Since I love irony, imagine how funny it would have been if had made it impossible for you to post and you ended up like DWTL. Has Atlasia ever had to have two special elections right after another for the same seat? I should research that.

Luckily I have an older laptop that I'm on right now, But it really upsets me because I loved that laptop and I try to take care of everything I have Sad
