Once, again because of Marokai, this gets pushed ahead as the next non-Marokai bill. Tongue


Scott, you have 24 hours to advocate for this.

I checked the Wiki and discovered that we apparently don't have a seal for Atlasia, so I created one myself.

Feel free to rip my art skills to shreds, but I hope we can reach a consensus on how we ought to have an official seal. Tongue

What don't you find aspirational about servitude?

Honesty is a good thing.

I'd be willing to withdraw this thing and start over.

Service is aspirational! Servitude implies involuntary, as in slavery. Tongue The PeopleTM aren't slaves to the gov't, they are slaves to the The PeopleTM.

Can someone do this for him, otherwise the amendment will be difficult to process as is?

I say we make this a nationwide competition, where we get a bunch of submissions, let the public vote on which one is the best, then have the Senate adopt that one.

...Oh, wow, that looks pretty bad now, doesn't it?

I'm still thinking about withdrawing this for a new concept, but I'll fix the seal and include Ben's motto for now.

Amendment:
Quote
SECTION 2. SEAL DESIGN

1.   The official Seal of the Republic of Atlasia shall appear as the following:

I say we make this a nationwide competition, where we get a bunch of submissions, let the public vote on which one is the best, then have the Senate adopt that one.

That's another good idea.

Even worse because you had servitude below a black face. Tongue You wouldn't be trying to tell us something covertly, by doing that, would you? Wink


Ben, do you accept Scott's text as representing the intent of your desired amendment? (basically will you support his amendment and drop your own? Tongue)

Scott is racist. I'm just embarrassed that a member of such an esteemed body has such an ignorant position.

Yes, yes, I see how I screwed up majorly with this. Tongue

On second thought, I'm going to withdraw my amendment and replace the language of the bill entirely.

Amendment:
Quote
A BILL

To establish an official seal for the Republic of Atlasia

Be it enacted by the Senate of the Republic of Atlasia assembled.

SECTION 1. TITLE

This legislation may be cited as the ‘Atlasian Seal Act of 2012.’

SECTION 2. CONTEST FOR NEW SEAL DESIGN

The people of Atlasia will have the opportunity to submit designs for a new seal until October 15th, 2012.  On October 15th, a poll shall open in the Atlas Fantasy Elections board for which submissions may be voted on by the public fora period of three days.  If no seal reaches a majority of the votes, a new poll will be created, and the process will continue until a new seal is selected.

I like this idea. I'll probably support it in its current form, but I do think STV would be a more convenient way to vote.

Just my two cents.
