  1. As a former chief administrator and owner of a government simulation game I’m just dropping by because I was made aware of the situation currently unfolding in this game. I don’t know much about Fitz and his tenure as a Chief Admin as I left before I could really have any meaningful interactions with him. But it should be to grave concern to the owners that in approximately 24 hours there have been nearly no posts on the boards. Taking into consideration the complaints and grievances raised in this thread the abrupt dying of the game as a result of the owner takeover is the largest vote of no confidence that I’ve seen unfold in some time. The triumvirate should offer the game to anyone with the credibility to uphold the community. Because it’s clear to me that the game will die as a result of the ownership change.
  2. I'm gonna have to do a sign out. There's atleast 12 days until I get a new computer and I won't be able to perform any duties from my cell as it keeps screwing the foematting for me. I'll be back in a while though.
  3. A motion has been made to suspend the appropriate rules and bring the Puerto Rico Statehood Act to the floor, 24 hours to vote.
  4. Point of order is received. I will close this vote and open a new one.
  5. I have had some computer issues, so sorry for the tardiness in responding to motions, this should get better on friday when I get a new computer back from the insurance company. Also, with two bills closed, the Majority Leader may post a new docket. Thirdly, the Senate archives (+bills sent to the house will be handled this weekend)
