    As my first act as next term's Minister of the Interior, I'd like to take a look at realigning our two states.

    Right now, both the Governor of Micalian's Gate and the Governor of Fort Impervious are vacant positions. Micalian's Gate is too far away from any other city to be put in a state (besides BW, but it can't be in a state), so we should leave it separate. But both New Port City and Fort Impervious are standalone cities that are next to the State of West Licentia.

    Since we have so few people running for office, and we've gone through this endless charade of appointing governors to vacant positions (usually people that already have an office), I'm thinking the best thing to do would be cut back on some positions by merging those two cities into a state. If we put both NPC and FI in West Licentia, then it would have 5 cities and Auda Minor would have 3. To balance things out, we could move a city from WL to AM (probably Old Sarai), so they each have 4 cities.

    What do you think about these ideas? And should we do it now, or wait until towards the end of the term? One thing we have to deal with is CivGeneral is currently the Governor of NPC, so he must give his approval to have his position dissolved if we are going to move that city into a state. He could always move to MG or become a mayor if he wishes, or we can just wait to realign until elections come up.

    Now if we take one or more cities from Germany over the next term, we can always realign the states again. I think that all cities captured from Germany should go into Auda Minor at first. If Auda Minor becomes too big, we can move a city or two back to West Licentia, or we can split it up and make a third state. This would obviously come later but I want to have an idea ahead of time.

    Please let me know what you think about these ideas, and we can take them to a vote in a couple of days.

    I support realignment as I have stated in the Tri thread.

    However leave West Licentia with 5 since the "incense" city south of BW will best fit in Auda minor along with Berlin.:) We need to finish that settler before hammer decay sets in.

    We can ask Civ general to take MG and then no one loses a position.

    I support the realignment and was going to propose this myself, but the nomination threads were posted before I did so.

    I also think we should leave West Licentia with 5 cities. I think we will have more cities for Auda Minor by the end of this term.

    I also agree with realignment. 5 cities in WL is ok, as FI will be simply building the GT, farms and specialists, which isn't a huge mental drain ;) But, 4 and 4 is also ok.

    I agree also. 5 for WL, and add new ones to AM. Ask CivGeneral politely if he would like to govern MG.

    Could I see a map showing what the cities and states are planned to look like at the end of term 7, kind of like the road map which is excellent.

    I think we need to wait until the new term starts and then ask the new Governors to discuss it again.

    I let this go as the president and hoped the governors would handle it...guess I should have pressed more.

    The Censor posted a poll here and it passed 8-1. The States have already been aligned.

    How so are the elections faulty?

    ANd we now can re-align states, nobody has posted a poll (or proposed for me to post one) with options for re-aligning the states.

    That poll, wich you validated on 7/22, eliminates the positions of Governors of New Port City and Fort Impervious. Therefore, you should not have asked for aplications for those positions, which you did on 7/23.

    Not a big error, but someone needs to tell ilr_18 that his post doesn't really exist. But he could ask to be the Gov of West Licentia or Micalian's Gate.

    Actually your wrong. The poll I validated asked "Should we realign our states?"

    Not "How should we realign our states?"

    Therefore states havent been realigned, however they will be. That will mean a round of polling with various choices of a plan to realign states.

    Also meaning the elections are not faulty.
