Velasco wrote the bill. I know who the legislators are. It is not absurd to ask the original sponsor to come in to defend his bill.

Also, my party isn't intent on improving our fortunes using technicalities. All of us should have been more on the ball with the Zanas situation, just for the sake of the region. Not for the sake of "winning Atlasia." I shouldn't be surprised that that's how you measure virtually everything to do with this game, but sometimes blame and cheap jabs don't count for much.

Anyway, yeah. I contacted him the other night to see where he was at with the game. We all want the best here, but it would be good to have a more active legislature.

Don't be such a prick. I'll admit that I didn't pay attention to who sponsored it and assumed you thought Zanas was still a Legislator, since Velasco hasn't been for quite some time. I apologize (I guess, for my inaccurate assumption and attempted clarification).

The rest is pious hot air and is certainly rich to hear, coming from the former leader of Atlasia's zombie-infused, empty-slate conservative party that is designed to win at all costs and the man who helped elect a Emperor that has failed to appoint anyone to replace a vacant seat for the past month. Don't try to spin this blatant neglect into "we care about the game". Change your 'pax, Hagrid.

I've PMed Zanas a few times. He's been an active legislator in the past so I've been willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I know just as well as you do that he's had IRL troubles and I've been acting under the thought that life problems shouldn't immediately disqualify you from staying in office. Just because I haven't appointed someone to his office doesn't mean I don't care or am not paying attention to the situation. It's a game AG, there is no need for gotchas because someone is having a rough time.

If there would be inter-regional regions each electing one legislator, why don't we have those use FPTP? The at-large election could still be done by PR-STV, but FPTP could make sense for elections of just one seat.


I admit that headache of calculating the PR-STV numbers for the ongoing election is part of the motivation for this

If we did elect everyone at once when would it be done? Would there be full elections every month taking up both normal class 1 and class 2 elections or would we just elect people less often?

Secondly, it's funny you mention the flag.  Last night I opened my copy of Adobe Flash and started designing potential flag designs for me to introduce if I'm elected to the Legislature.  My idea was to combine Southern state flags (stars, stripes, Saints symbols, TX lone stars, etc.) into one design, but I couldn't come up with something that represents all the states.  However, I'd desperately like to see the current flag replaced, as I feel it is way too dreary for us.

What, you don't like THIS?

Absolutely shocking.

I hope you'll put some of your ideas here before bringing them to the legislature, I'd like to get public discussion on what kind of flag we should have.

Hello Southerners and the less fortunate! This is your beneficent Emperor calling you to come together to provide your ideas and your suggestions on changing our Constitution. Is replacing our flag your thing? Want to end our Imperial titles? Or maybe you just want to change our voting rules. Well here is the place to talk about it!

In the past, people have tried to make threads for individual issues like amendment reform or changing when we vote but they ALWAYS end the same way. They peter out and nothing ever changes. Not now. I pledge to personally introduce and fight for The People to get a chance to vote for most if not all of the proposals made in this thread. So lets have at it!
642  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / IDS September Regional Election on: September 22, 2013, 05:01:37 pm
Voting starts immediately and ends at 6:00 PM EST, Wednesday, September 25th. Voting shall use proportional representation through the single transferable vote (PR-STV).

A voter's ballot is valid only if the voter:

(1) is registered with the Atlasian Registrar General as a voter of a Southern state during the entire time that the poll is open;
(2) makes only a single post in that election thread;
(3) does not edit or delete the post more than one hour after the post has been made; and
(4) clearly identifies the contest in which a vote is intended to be applied, except when there is only one contest on the ballot.


Official Ballot:

Please vote for the candidates in your preferred order:

Imperial Legislature:
[ ] Hashemite (NM'AM'-FL) (i)
[ ] Jack Enderman (FED-FL)
[ ] Scott (PRO-AR)
[ ] Write-In:________

Over the last few weeks the IDS has been slow. This is fine. A temporary slowdown at the start of the school year isn't a sign of a dying region. I myself have had real life impose on time that would otherwise be spent in Atlasia. However, in this case I have made a serious mistake. By not paying the due amount of attention to the election dates, I have allowed harm to come to my region. This is not acceptable behavior for the Emperor of the IDS. From today onward, I swear to be vigilant and to do my region right. However, I feel that this could end up being a positive. A mistake of this caliber can rejuvenate a region, and knowing the quality of my subjects I KNOW we'll use this as a shot in the arm to get us back and better than ever.

Since the booth DOES need to be opened, I'll be doing that at 6 EST to allow any last-minute entries into the race.

By a vote of 3 to 8, this amendment fails in the IDS.

Hey, congratulations on electing a speaker guys! I just wanted to remind you that the Freedom of Empire act was never voted on; debate is technically still ongoing if y'all want to talk about that.
648  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Senate Bill: Fix the Regions Amendment (Debating) on: September 17, 2013, 03:14:27 am
Sorry, I've been meaning to respond to this but life has gotten in the way.

This is an issue, however, where you may believe that some of my inexperience is revealed, but you can ask Sirnick, Dereich, or Lumine for more clarification, as we all agreed on the solution.

The other benefit of reregistration that we discussed is that it allows us to redraw the map without looking at current populations. Making all this effort to solve regional inactivity won't really matter if we create a monster Midwest-Pacific region that ends up just as inactive as the Pacific and Midwest are now. Even if the zombies DO come back, they might not all be focused in the same places, while active people would also have more incentive to spread out hopefully balancing out activity levels between the new regions.

Can we leave Canada out of this? Canada is a hideous, ugly thing that makes every map worse.
