*There* he is!!! <g>

Salve, clarissime Servi Marti, et Salvete omnes! For me, "Roman" isn't something you're born as, it's something you become. To the extent that perhaps a billion people in 1200 years were either raised by Roman families or adopted the culture on their own and passed it on to their childr...

Re: DEMOCRACY! with very little Demo-....

Publius Valerius Regulus stopped by on 12 April and made his second post.

If only he'd been a Sodalis...

But Yes, mi Timave, I'm all for wrapping this up.

Comin' Through

Salvete amici! The VA health care system has always come through for me. It's the 'forsaken Compensation and Pension Division that hasn't given me anything but a hard time. "Jet fuel causes cancer?? --Prove it!" But VA Medical Center Dallas screwed my head back on reasonably strai...

Spic and Span

Salvete, amici Romani! I just returned from the Oklahoma City VA Medical Center last week. I am halfway through my five-year post-cancer "surveillance period"...and I'm still clean. BOO-YAH!!!!!!!!! *assumes Crane position, pumps fist* Too bad they can't do anything about my scatterb...

Waiting for Godot

Salvete amici, Some of the Conditores haven't been here in four years. I don't suggest waiting on them. In any case, didn't we agree, a long long time ago (the year of Gn Draco's retirement and the Concilium reforms) that the Society has and should have no Indispensable Men? Really, I think at ...

Secrecy of the Ballot

Avete, amici magistri, I'm afraid "those who answered the poll on elections" is going to be a rather elusive group to pin down...or did you mean the discussion topic and not the poll itself? Not even the Mighty Admin gets to see who voted how on the poll; just totals and percentages--...

The Book of (Forum) Life

Salvete magistri, Certe, anyone who has posted to this thread is a "currently active Sodalis". There may be others; besides us, we have had 11 Sodales visit the Forum this year, for a total of 16, and almost all of them have posted. (We have one newbie who hasn't yet; but she and I ha...

> "... the Regula, they're in abeyance for now." *blinks* *restrains the Combat Poodle and the Public Horse* ...Oh. Not an Undo; an interregnum . We can do that; we have once before--no, make that twice. In 2756-7 / 2003-4, we actually had an interrex ('twas Q Claudius Locat...

The Power of One?

Salvete omnes, Decisions about what? About the Forum and the Web site? For that, you have a manus of two: Tibi Draco and myself. Sans the Regula, sans a governmental structure of any kind, there would be no decisions to make about the Societas itself. No elections, no laws, no edicts, no...

Re: DEMOCRACY! with very little Demo-....

It would entail more than a comment on the Regula page. I'd basically have to redo anything on the site that states or implies that we are an actual entity, with memberships and a constitution. The application form (and process) would go. The Webmail would be for site issues, article submissions...

Re: DEMOCRACY! with very little Demo-....

Uti Rogas, Iohanne magister; uti rogas. (That's only one vote; the other one's the echo in the auditorium.) I'll go one further: I don't see the need for -cracy of any sort. I think it's silly to have anything subject to a vote when it takes us a week and a half to scare up seven voters on a me...

Mari's New Avvie

Salve, mi Iohanne, and Thank You! I was wondering when someone would comment on it. I do like my Pokémon, and Absol's my favorite. He's got enough of the Wolf about him...but a certain felinicity too; and the myth surrounding him carries a certain resonance for me. Called "the Disaster Pok...

World Wide What?

Salvete omnes! Frequently Asked Question: Are we "societasviaromana.net" now, or "www. societasviaromana.net" ? Either addy works. It's the same site, same URL, just on a different server. On the back end, we had to tell the look-it-up servers where "[www.]soc...

A More Constructive Response

Salvete iterum, amici Romani, > ([Cassius] has learned his lesson about mistakes made with NR he says). Putting this out there where Cassius and Vedius can see it: 1) Start with the community, not the governing structure. Collegia/Sodalitates; discussion and revival of arts, crafts, trad...

Lighting up Hadrian's Wall

Salvete, amici Romani, Today the UK commemorated its Roman heritage by lighting torches along the entire length of Hadrian's Wall. Flash video here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/8565759.stm People came from all over the world to either see it or take part. It had to be coordinate...

Re: A Short History of Leg IX Hispana

Salve, mi Aelia! For my part, I was impressed by the illustrations of Tacitus Hibernicus'/Sean Richards' Legio IX Hispana ...that reenactor unit has come a long, long way from its beginnings as an SCA fight-club! (I was its first out-of-state member, being the Texas vexillatio in its entiret...
