    Btw... Isn't the Symposium meant to be for serious discussions with academic aspects of a subject?
    No. If you check the original mandate of the Symposium you will see that that is not the case.

    You know, hasn't it occured to you that something one wants to say doesn't need a thread, instead only a post would better rather than having a thread with few posts or just the OP with a lot of views and no replies.
    Which is why I said you're also free to post in the chat thread over there .

    one post about mods won't hurt anyone.
    "oh it's just one off topic personal reference"

    "oh it's just one censorship bypass"

    Yeah, no one is "hurt" by it, but it doesn't mean it's not against the rules...

    Given the implied laxity of the Curia as a whole and the fact forum description is not a binding rule on its own, not to include a vast history of tangentially related posts in the townhall at the end of the day... I would say ToS strongmanning here of all places is barking up the wrong tree. Semantic accuracy gives way to 'chill, mate'.

    Surely there are better ways to protect or restore the integrity of the Curia...

    As you can see the Townhall thread was renamed from General Chat and Commentary to Curial Commentary and Chat. So, in this case Chat has the same meaning as General Chat.

    You might not have wanted to mention that decision.

    While it was not stated explicitly, two posts strongly imply the thread existed for relevance to the Curia and one brought up mention of a true general chat. The decision was passed to clarify the very thing you are trying to argue.

    Again not a big deal, but I'm pretty sure you just broke your case.

    Well gents, we're back to election time for Magistrate. The previous Magistrate has retaken office as the candidacy was invalid.

    The latest citizen application are too thin and should't be accepted due for being incomplete e.g no links IMO.

    Appealing to the weakness of patron offering used to be a stronger point, but for some time that value has diminished. Again, given my own application it's clear that there simply aren't grounds to try and get it taken down at a curial moderation level (otherwise I'm not sure why you are expanding your opposition to two general threads beyond the application itself) and given the tone of the room, at the level of most participating citizens. They just don't care that much. If you want to get into the loss of application standards in detail, feel free to drop a thread here in Curia main.

    Since you're going to just copy paste an identical question to two threads, I'll copy paste my response to you.

    There are no requirements for being sponsored for citizenship aside from having 50 posts and being registered for 2 months as well as no infractions for 6 months.

    Before you and anyone else posts unconstitutional and baseless nonsense, maybe you should read the damned constitution once or twice and see that the Censors and Consul are, in fact, following the rules.

    As was explained to Halie above; the Consul and Censors have no right or authority to "not accept" an application unless it does not meet one of the three fundamental requirements. When one of those is not met, we are required to remove it. We do not have any discretion regarding these decisions. We are required by the constitution and entrusted by the Curia to follow the constitution to the letter.

    Listen, I have the right to express my opinion and so do you.



    Anyway, why is The Citizens Handbook a non-sticky instead of having it as a sticky since it has a purpose.

    The standard for applications are as follows;
    The candidate and patron formulate an application which highlights the candidate's contributions along with any supporting evidence/information.
    Taken from the constitution

    It is arguably a "low" standard. The application contains a listing of the client's contribution along with endorsements of his application of other citizens. The criterion has been met.
    We have had similar applications in the past pass without problems.

    I believe you are confused a bit there, Pike. That's not a "standard" on applications, that's simply stating that the patron and the nominee work together to create the application. There is no actual requirement there for any degree or level of actual evidence, or for that matter require any evidence.

    But now that pedantry is past...
