8 March 2021 - Week 8 - Vice Delegate's Update
Happy International Women's Day!
We've gained 17 Keepers since last week's update, and the top 14 endorsement positions in the game are now occupied by the Delegate and Security Council. You may notice that Pallaith has spiked in endorsements recently: this was a controlled increase that occurred as a result of Pallaith endorsing back up from the mid-70s percentage-wise (a holdover from the most recent transition). Xagill is close to the rest of the SC, and is comfortably in position 14 at 966 endorsements and rising.
Speaking of citizens, the Ministry of Home Affairs has been hard at work on a new HA mentoring program, as also stated in the Ministry's February report. When writing up the template I'm currently using to start conversations with citizenship applicants who pass the Vice Delegate's check, I consulted with HA Minister Owenstacey to avoid overlap with the HA mentoring program in the works at the time. I've been starting forum convos with every citizenship applicant who passes the VD's check for the past ~1.5 months, and will continue to do so provided there are no overlap issues going forward.
The final item I would like to touch on here is declassification. We've released 60 private SC threads in the past week, which can be viewed by residents in this archive. While declassification is a legal requirement of the office, the process has been quite painless due in large part to the support and diligence of the SC. In addition to standard declassification, there is one pending disclosure request. The deadline for the release of relevant records is this Saturday the 12th, though they should be released before then.
