MOTION: Patricianship Bill PASSED 7-1-0
« on: September 07, 2013, 03:16:11 PM »
This from the discussion here:
https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2602.0

Simple majority, one week.


This plaza moves the following:

1.
a) This bill exists to:
b) Formalise existing practice regarding administrators gaining automatic patricianship
c) Clarify terminology and when this can be used
d) For the purposes of this bill, "Patrikios" and the term "Patrician" used in older bills and the constitution, should be considered wholly interchangeable

2.
a) All administrators, on attaining the rank of administrator, whether by ratification or contested election, shall automatically gain the rank of Patrikios of the site.
b) They shall retain this title on leaving their post and it may only be removed by a counteracting vote by the citizens.
c) The rank of Patrikios is understood to be only and always a gift of the citizens; it is attached to their election or ratification.

3.
a) Clause 1d above should by this bill be considered to apply generally in terminology of all other bills, so that Patrician is understood to be the same as Patrikios and vice versa.
b) Future bills that affect the rank should use the term Patrikios, as the current actual rank name.
