Competing Proposal

Salvete Romani, I have another idea: We could skip the formality (and the embarrassment of our new Curatores being elected by, say, four people out of 91) and simply declare that the first three-to-seven people to request a Curatorship may have it almost for the asking. I say "almost" b...

Re: Call for Officers

Salve, mi Iohanne, et Salvete omnes... For any of you who may be considering putting in for a Curatorship, but are unsure what the job entails, here's a rundown: The Regula itself, vague as it is, does list some specific duties and responsibilities of the Societas' "officers". They are...

Re: Marcus Cocceius Firmus

Salve, amice Curator, His chosen gens is not only attested, but quite distinguished: the first of the Five Good Emperors, Marcus Cocceius Nerva, comes strongly to mind. I've added "Cocceius" and "Cocceia" to the pull-down list of nomina on the application form. I think yo...

The Missing Link <g>

Salvete omnes, Here's the link (I think this is the one Curator Iohannes wanted to share...): Your Roman Name: The User's Manual . It's not so stuffy as one might find in other places; we don't even call it a "policy". And yet our members' names tend to be tons more authentic tha...

What's Marius' Problem?

Salvete omnes... I know I have been behaving rather (try very) erratically in recent months--thrashing about like a creature in pain, driving people away and allowing myself to be driven away into progressively longer silences. Some of the latter began with certain well-known recent Board events;...

Re: Would it be cool...

Salve, mi Iohanne, et Salvete omnes... As they say in those romantic comedies: "It's not you, it's not me, it just didn't work out." Rather not go into the details here. Yes, we needed Octavius. Let's just say I'm still on a roll for mess-ups, diplomatic and otherwise. Next project.....

A Draft?

Salvete amici, Noster Iohannes, of course, would be the best person to tell us what he means by a "draft"; but I wouldn't mind seeing a mockup of some kind, an image (maybe a screenshot) of the proposed theme, with the custom SVR elements pasted in via an image editor. I regard our basi...

Re: Tired of the spam

...There; I've made it so that new accounts have to be activated by one of the admins. When a new member registers, instead of getting a letter with an activation link, his or her name will be listed under "Inactive Members" on the admin panel until an admin checks a box after the name a...

Re: Roman symbol

Salvete amici! The Eagle and the Wolf-and-Twins are instantly identifiable with Rome. Each of the Gods also had his or her "attributes", items that were included in representations of them that identified who they were. Mercury's staff, Iupiter's eagle or lightning-bolts, and the mirro...

TDY

Salve iterum, amica, > btw, I'm in Louisiana now, so is there a way to change it on the member's list? Done. Will this be a temporary or a permanent thing? I update the Album Sodalium when we get a new member; when a member notifies me that their info (Roman name, residence) has changed; a...

A Question of Scale

Salvete ambobus... Na, we don't have one-ten-thousandth the shenanigans that they do over there. (An old-timer once said in the Comitia that we're so civil, we're boring.) But that we could be compared with NR at all in some other way than by stark contrast--that we could even have an uproar to ...

The Wolf Howls

Salvete, amici Romani... In late April I got offlined for a week by a corrupted network adapter. I came back to people saying that we were too P.C., that the magistrates were harrassing/being harrassed by Formosus...people editing, people deleting, people being profane, people being banned...and t...

Please Don't Feed the Grammarians

Salvete omnes, Re: Neosalexandria, the SVR doesn't score any brag-points either. "Societas Via Romana" = 'Society of the Roman Way'...? We should have been "Societas Viae Romanae" if that's what we wanted to say. A couple of years ago when we moved to our present server, I ...

Salvete omnes,

Would it break anyone's heart if I locked this topic? I don't normally ask, and I started this one, but unless someone believes it could be productive if handled properly, I'd just as soon not wait for it to die a natural death.

Who's still playing?

Salvete amici,

Formosus is not coming back.

Still haven't seen Pulla.

I think that leaves Iohannes, Paulus, Aelia and myself, with occasional appearances by Aulus Flavius...is that about the size of it?

New players, of course, are always welcome!
