Occitania Regional Message Board
I know I seldom say much but I do check in but I am always here. Those members never said a word about anything!
Banning Eustrevia was a good thing. Well done!
What's ne t on the agenda?
Wow! Seems like things got quiet again. Will no one make an attempt to keep things exciting?
Seems that way
Very few seem interested to participate. What should we be doing to make Occitania interesting again?
I think we should post any grievences and suggestions and then have every member vote on what to do and what direction Occitania should go as a region. This way everyone has an equal voice and not forced by the Imperial Matrix.
I think East Prussia's idea is a good one. We have achieved what I feel is an excellent government and two affiliations, the GU and the AFR who work togther now and creating the Kammergericht, that we have created a great government structure that we have taken all the excitement and passion out.
The thing is we need a list of what we want and where we want to take Occitania.
Seems like the same core members have any interest in the region. I call for the Imperial Matrix to issue an Imperial Decree, effective immediately for the following; Officially recognize the Kammergericht, as the Occitan High Court, eliminate Haldasia, and Catalpha from the Imperial Matrix, and a strict voting ethic of "miss one vote you lose your membership (in the IM or Kammergericht).
I do agree that the IM should recognize the Kammergericht. The 'voting ethic' should have an option to allow people to announce when they'll not be able to post; if they're away during a vote, and can't state their decision, I don't think they should be punished for that. What I do not agree with at all is removing Catalpha and myself from the IM. What purpose would that serve? There is no reason for either of us to be removed from the IM.
