Salvete omnes beta-testers, PEBKAC. "Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair." My keyboard. My chair. Marius Screwed Up. Octavius informs me that the site's been live on the new server for two days. Which means the societasviaromana.net.previewdns.com addy is obsolete. Has been ...

Re: Site Transfer

Salve, mi Iohanne, and Salvete to all you other involuntary exiles who have gotten the same message: I get the same thing, but I can still log in via the "Login" link at the top of the error page. The important thing is, nobody's actually been banned. So hit that "Login" li...

Re: Site Transfer

Ave(te?) iterum, Setup complete. Transferring today or tomorrow. I'll be closing the Board to new registrations until it's complete. I might just lock it down, period, as anything posted in the next few days will likely be lost. *Marius heads back to Castra Vetera to scare up a few dockworkers...

Re: Site Transfer

Avete iterum,

The transfer's looking more like it's going to happen next week (or so) rather than this week. I had to get me some Tech Support. >({|;-)

Stay tuned...

Site Transfer

Avete omnes, We're moving the site to another Web host this week. The URL will still be the same [ http://www.societasviaromana.net ], but we might be down for a day or two, as even after everything's been transferred to the new server it usually takes the rest of the 'Net a day or two to catch u...

Shyeah, right.

Pfft...again with the micronation bit. "A legitimate heir to the Byzantine Empire", on nothing but his say-so? Shyeah, right. Byzantium was Greek and Christian, two things Cassius is not and would not want to be. Remember, he's the founder of the Julian Society, the Religio Romana rev...

Okay, now what?

Ave(te?) Ten days. The question of the Societas' next form or even future survival has gone unanswered for ten days. A referendum that needed ten votes to make a quorum only got seven, and *that* took eight days. The membership hasn't replied. The candidates haven't replied. I'm at a loss. N...

Marius at Bat

Salvete Romani, We're still debating the future of the Societas in Curia . We'd rather do it here; it involves everybody, and it's kind of urgent. I post, below, the highlights/talking-points of the discussion thus far; there's also been some tech-talk with Octavius. Heads up...! *swings* ...

Janus

Re: End of the Year; Call for Officers

Salvete omnes, Mi Timave, my real worry is for the morale of the new Curatores. Dunno about you, but I'd have a hard time staying motivated if I knew I'd been elected by, say, four people out of five. Proportionally, that's 80%--a landslide. Numerically, it's either comical or pitiful, depending...

POLL: Shall we have elections this year?

Salvete, amici Romani, As of this writing, we have three candidates for Curator and three Curatorships to be filled. The Regula requires elections, about which it says: "To be valid and to have any force whatsoever, any decision by the Comitia must be voted on by at least ten sodales in g...
