Are not really real policy

2018-07-30 00:24:46 UTC  

But a regional name change and making drake and josh the regional anthem

2018-07-30 00:25:02 UTC  

Which is a pretty personal issue

2018-07-30 00:25:31 UTC  

How is everyone not seeing this clearly

2018-07-30 00:25:48 UTC  

regional name change is real policy, it's been discussed for quite some time.

That being said, the content of bills is not the issue, LT

2018-07-30 00:26:07 UTC  

It’s a policy, and if he can’t vote based on policy he shouldn’t be a delegate

2018-07-30 00:29:13 UTC  

Plain and simple

2018-07-30 00:29:29 UTC  

Everything introduced is policy of some sort

2018-07-30 00:29:33 UTC  

But the thing is that naming a region is very symbolic and it provides a legacy to whoever picks the name

2018-07-30 00:30:41 UTC  

So if he associates a certain name and song with you, and he has issues with you

2018-07-30 00:31:01 UTC  

Then he has no obligation to support your idea

2018-07-30 00:31:18 UTC  

He also hasn't addressed the raccoon issue at all :/

2018-07-30 00:31:19 UTC  

Since it's all just a vanity policy

2018-07-30 00:39:41 UTC  

many southerners expressed a desire to rename the region. it's an issue that's come up in the South tons of times post reset. it's not a vanity policy at all.

2018-07-30 00:40:09 UTC  

But southerners disagree on what to exactly rename it to

2018-07-30 00:40:49 UTC  

and the current discussion in the chamber has been to have the citizens vote on the version they prefer

2018-07-30 00:41:58 UTC  

And pretty much the Chamber will pick whichever name the "alpha male" gets the necessary votes for

2018-07-30 00:41:59 UTC  

even if YT hadn't introduced the bill, Ben would have tried to force through renaming it back to IDS, and been a lot less reasonable than YT on the issue

2018-07-30 00:42:17 UTC  

you don't know Ben and how he works

2018-07-30 00:43:45 UTC  

at least how it's currently planned, the southerners actually pick, not the chamber.

2018-07-30 00:44:26 UTC  

So would there be a referendum on a list of possible names?

2018-07-30 00:44:53 UTC  

And the chamber picks the list of names?

2018-07-30 00:45:58 UTC  

Ben wants to not give southerners a choice

2018-07-30 00:46:11 UTC  

He put a bill that would just need to be signed by the Governor

2018-07-30 00:46:21 UTC  

I want something that lets the people decide

2018-07-30 00:46:46 UTC  

So do you like the referendum list idea

2018-07-30 00:46:53 UTC  


2018-07-30 01:18:00 UTC  

As I've stated previously, I will not sign a bill that changes the name of the region.

2018-07-30 01:18:19 UTC  

It should be a decision made by The People, not by 7 delegates and then me.

2018-07-30 01:18:29 UTC  

100% agreed

2018-07-30 01:18:35 UTC  

Yeah it needs to be a referendum

2018-07-30 01:18:42 UTC  

With a list choice

2018-07-30 01:18:50 UTC  

We just need to get names

2018-07-30 01:19:00 UTC  

I think we can open up the floor for the people’s suggestions

2018-07-30 01:19:06 UTC  

Close it after 24 hours

2018-07-30 01:19:53 UTC  

Then put it up as a list preference and the first one that hits with 50.1# gets to be the new name

2018-07-30 01:20:12 UTC  

That’s how I’d prefer it, I just don’t know the proper way of doing it

2018-07-30 01:20:37 UTC  

Maybe more than 24 hours

2018-07-30 01:20:53 UTC  

And yeah ranked choice voting is always great

2018-07-30 01:21:54 UTC  

Largely I think my plan is good

2018-07-30 01:22:14 UTC  

I really would prefer we not ever return to the IDS as it is really lame
