    The disciplinary barrier exists because the large awards also grant citizenship. Also, you have awards like the Loincloth which are literally for good behavior.

    Yes I know that, and indeed it's another thing that should be changed, IMO. I mean large awards granting citizenship

    And you know what? As long as those standards aren't requested to be upheld in order to retain those awards, it is really pointless to have them, to begin with

    I fully disagree with both of those statements. A large award is much harder to get than citizenship and it is awarded for exactly the same things, meaning it HAS to come with citzenship included.

    The standards act as a filter and they ARE maintained, you temporarily lose your citizenship if you break the ToS.

    Well that is personal I guess... but if I look at the large awards reasoning I see no mention to having to comply with the same "standards" as of citizenship.. It is the Constitution that creates this connection between the two.

    And again think of this: you can get and accept a large award and still refuse to become a Citizen, so telling that it HAS to come with citizenship included is not correct and thus the logic of "has to respect the same standards" has no grip, atl to my way of reasoning.

    Would you like to put up a discussion about this? I think more people might want to weight in if it gets the proper exposure.

    The large award allows for the granting of citizenship. The recipient has the option to accept it or not.Moreover, large award winners have a distinctive color (and it used to have its own badge as well). Whether or not they accept citizenship is immaterial when it comes to expectant behavior as long as they are have a distinctive color to their name.

    The entire point of these awards were to promote the site. Ideally, you want all members who are "distinct" by color and/or badge to behave exemplary. Large award winners are defacto citizens.

    Your claims are not backed up by the Constitution, unlike Flinn's.

    My comments were mostly based on historicity, not the constitution. The part that dealt with the Constitution was correct and consistent with the same part that Flinn corrected Adrian on.

    I'd like to thank all the people who took the time to vote and especially those who put their trust in me. I'm available for any enquiry related to the Curia, here in the Townhall or by PM.

    While the administrative stuff is on going, I can already announce that I'm nominating Flinn and Gigantus as my Censores. Their experience will be priceless to second me in my new task.
    However, as Gigantus is currently a Magistrate, he'll have to quit his current position to assume his role as a Censor. A Magistrate election will be set shortly. Meanwhile, Gigantus remains Magistrate until the election ends as per the Constitution.

    Sounds like a conspiratorial arrangement to me.

    I suggest establishing an independent investigative body to look into these matters.
