Aye, it could get out of hand, but hopefully the regions will put mechanisms in place so that the names aren't being changed every couple of months.

AYE!

The Convention has already voted to leave this issue in the hands of the Regions. The principle of this matter is no longer up for debate.

we should also allow for a process for the restoration to 5 regions while we are at it.
There is a process for that - a constitutional amendment.

Since we're in a Constitutional Convention I figure we should put the framework in so we could if future situations merit.
And we will - by allowing the Constitution to be amended.

Aye

But we also really need to specify that there will be some sort of (in parentheses) regional identifier (likely based on geography) recognized in federal documents/Wiki if when the names become silly.

And we know they will become silly.  Very silly.  I have been saying that for weeks in this convention.

That is why we should have set names, unchangeable.

AYE!

Out of hand, out of shmand. If the majority of people in a region decide a name is best, what right do other people have to tell them not to do it? If it's that important, re-register in that region and vote for a boring name, or campaign to voters for the boring name of your choice. (Not that I'm against boring names, I just don't think they should be federally mandated.)

I mean, how bad can it get? Did Atlasia die when the South changed it's name to "Dirty South?" Or "Imperial Dominion of the South," and renamed Governors "Emperors?"

Well, you know, some Libertarians, who shall remain anonymous, bless their hearts, believe that citizens should have the right to do anything without any interference from governments.

Truly, there are times when citizens have to be protected from themselves by governments.

Dallas and Nappy's 2014 romp through the Northeast really did leave a lasting impact on you.

Napoleon was always one of my very best friends and allies on this forum.

He and I supported one another the vast majority of the time, so I fail to see your point here regarding my good friend Napoleon.

Dallasfan and I had our differences,  true enough, as he seemed to have a philosophy of anything goes, no matter the harm done.

I am pleased to say that I was successful in having some of his more obscene ands harmful pieces of legislation repealed and overturned.

Seeing no objection, we will now proceed with a final vote on this Article. If this measure should pass, I will close debate on this topic and the below text will become the final text for Article I. Please vote AYE, NAY, or Abstain; voting will last 48 hours or until all delegates have voted.

EDIT: On second though, this vote will last 72 hours (until 3:38 on Friday) in observance of Thanksgiving.

EDIT #2: THIS IS A VOTE TO END DEBATE IN THIS THREAD ONLY, NOT TO SET THE BELOW TEXT IN STONE. BY VOTING 'AYE', YOU ARE VOTING TO END DEBATE ON CONSOLIDATION, REGIONAL NAMES, & SECESSION. WE WILL CONTINUE DEBATING SECTION 3 IN THIS THREAD!
