    Oh dear why does all the stuff have to happen at the end of a year long consulship?

    I'll slowly begin working my way through things.

    ----

    So as far as my short (?) absence goes:

    Surely everyone is aware of a little thing known as COVID-19 making the rounds. It hasn't hit where I live horribly yet, but it had enough so a couple weeks ago, and will get worse. For those unaware, I am both in the military...and as a paramedic. So the last couple weeks has been a national guard medical mission I have been on. The plan of that mission evolved from a two day mission to a week long mission, and ended up being an indefinite amount of time. Technically, it still is, I am however on quarantine now. I've tested negative for the virus thus far, but the quarantine is a precaution for all anyways. So good news is I don't have it, bad news is I am stuck inside for two weeks, and good news for TWC is...I am stuck inside for two weeks!

    I will try to go through and clean things up as appropriate now that I can. Suffice to say for now though that I did, when I first learned I would leave for this mission, let the censors/praefects know of the potential absence. I had hoped the timing would allow be to be back in time to properly setup the consul election, though that just didn't turn out to be timed as perfectly as hoped.

    As you can imagine, I am careful about what I say about my main job on the outside, being military and medical in a time such as this. It was not something I could - nor indeed would have if I could have - said anything publicly about. At this point I feel it fine to say enough so all understand my absence without going into too much detail. Only Hex and Censors/Praefects were told initially.

    So there is that for now. I will go through and do what is needed on my end, and clarify more as needed, however hopefully this is a good start for all.

    I think (hope) I have made my way through most things here. In light of everything, I may actually need to restart the consul election, as well as stop and redo the award thingy for that weird inquisitor guy. I'll look into it one last time...after I make a quarantini and sammich.

    Flinn was worried to have no news. He'll be heartened to know you're back Hader... Well, once he can go out for a decent internet connection

    I think Flinn was hoping for news of Hader's demise, rather than his return .

    The Usurper has failed in his schemes yet again.

    FYI, I am redoing the Consul application thread and process. Seeing as this would have been the intended start date anyways, no time is lost realistically.

    I am also invalidating the vote for that weird guy's medal.

    Please do not take this as me validating the VonC against VZ ongoing currently. I have hopefully made things quite clear from my end and where miscommunication was, and the fact I am redoing the election and invalidating one vote is in no way intended to support the VonC or anything VZ did. Again, I think I clarified things enough, and this is rather a step towards keeping with the letter of the law in a case where there is likely to be little actual changes to the processes in question, and minimal damage done regardless of outcomes.

    I believe that would be the wicked and dreaded Hader himself.

    I'm well out of the loop here, sorry. Are Curator's Consul's reports no longer a thing?

    They are, however a regular report with the low activity of late would be quite small, and while I am all for things that remind me of hobbits, it feels better to have a substantial enough report to put together at once. I initially planned to have one at the end of last year, but even that one was looking small again, so after my decision for one more consulship I figured it best to just do at the end of this term. So look for it in a few days.

    Cue the dumb question; I've been away for ages. What exactly is a Patrician and what have I done to receive the honour? I'm neither a large award recipient, nor a former admin, as per this thread.

    Perhaps I was given it by mistake, in which case I should probably do the right thing and hand it back, as nice as it is.

    That doesn't matter, Lifth. It's awarded to those with large awards or administrators after 6 months. So technically he's correct I think, he shouldn't have the badge.
