Many thanks for the advice, nevertheless I tried it before a few months ago, off course. In spam folder nothing and I also turned off all filters in email.
But still nothing. And as I said. I am not the only one. Several other citizens have the same problem, for example Paullus Aemilius Gallus (Raetia) and Lucius
Claudius Caesar (without province – Indonesia).

Hello, I, G. Iulius Augustus, would like to termimate my citizenship. I find no fault in your organization, it is simply because I have changed my mind due to my personal views.November 14, 2017 at 2:28 am #12029
We are sorry to see you go, amice. We wish you the best down the road you walk. 🙂 May you find nothing but good fortuneNovember 17, 2017 at 12:06 am #12073

I, Tiberius Servilius Nerva, ask the quaestors to change my nominee from Servilius to Flavius.November 22, 2017 at 8:12 pm #12143

‘Caeliomontanus’ is a terrible cognomen; a fact which I’ve valiantly struggled to ignore but can no longer. I would appreciate it if the Censors would be so kind as to change it to ‘Symphorianus’, which I think flows nicely off the tongue.November 23, 2017 at 7:47 am #12146
The chosen cognomen is absent in the list of available cognomen, however, ‘Symphorianus’ – takes place in the historical period that the Roman Republic covers. In this regard, I and my colleague Brutus are solving this issue.November 24, 2017 at 6:24 am #12147

I have moved from Virginia to Eria a few months back. I have updated my personal profile to reflect the change, however, it still shows my province as Virginia.
May I please have it changed to Eria? Many thanks.

Done!December 13, 2017 at 3:38 pm #12297
The province I live is Nova Hispania Citerior, and my profile says I’m in Nova Hispania Ulterior. I humbly ask for this to be changed correctly.
Thank youDecember 23, 2017 at 2:19 am #12353

Great to have our first citizen from Nova Hispania Citerior (Mexico). The first of many more I am sure!January 2, 2018 at 4:47 am #12409
For my friend who would like to be a member of RR I am asking for listing of cognomen "Palla".
Valete bene!January 2, 2018 at 6:39 am #12410
Can you provide historical authenticity for usage of Palla as a cognomen? If so, I’d be glad to add it.
It is the policy of the Roman Republic to only use names that are historically accurate.
Gratias ago, amice!January 2, 2018 at 2:03 pm #12411

Salve Censor Curio!
I know. There is one record for it. And this cognomen you can choose in Nova Roma. So it can not be ahistorical.
Vale bene!January 2, 2018 at 3:07 pm #12412
It is enough for me. As soon as Censorial permissions are granted for new year I’ll enact this change. I’ll private message you once I’m able to do so, amice.January 2, 2018 at 9:11 pm #12413

Many of NR’s naming practices are horrible. I would not use that fact as a source of legitimacy.January 2, 2018 at 9:16 pm #12414
I based my acceptance of it on the book he posted (Which I found in English). The NR acceptance of it didn’t play a factor for me.January 5, 2018 at 7:12 am #12422

Au contraire, mes amis. NR’s nomenclature practices, like those of some reenactment legions, were indeed pretty ghastly in its early days–but some years ago better-disposed censors and some genuine Latinists (as opposed to those who may have had some Latin, but had forgotten too much) conducted extensive research into Roman nomenclature. The NR nomenclature pages are based on said research into such works as the Pauly, the Fasti Consulares, and several more modern tomes on this subject. Finnish scholars are especially fond of nomenclature, and have written several books on Roman nomenclature. Fortunately for most of us, they are not in Finnish, but German or English (or Latin). The censura might like to consult Mika Kajava, "Roman Female Praenomina," Heikki Solin, "Namenpaare: eine Studie zur Römischen Namengebunge," [spelling of last word uncertain], Heikki Solin, and Olli Salomies, "Repertorium nominum gentilium et cognominum Latinorum," W. Schulze, "Zur Geschichte Lateinischer Eigennamen," Olli Salomies, " Adoptive and Polyonomous Nomenclature in the Roman Empire," H. Solin and O. Salomies, "Die Römischen Vornamen," W. Schultze, "Die Jungsten Schichten der Gentilnamensbildung," etc., though these might be hard to find.
Thus it is that NR’s nomenclature pages are based on these and other scholarly references, and are quite accurate. My personal references do not list ‘Palla’ as a cognomen, but there are similar ones, and those such as ‘Pulcher,’ which do not follow the usual instructions in these matters, i.e., that cognomina should be uncomplimentary, refer to unusual physical features or to animals, etc. NR allows the names of occupations as well as toponyms if one no longer lives in the area in question, plus Latinizations of one’s own name (but of ONLY one name), though it forbids the names or titles of deities and highly complimentary names such as ‘Maximus’ or ‘Augustus.’ The living Latin courses I taught required the students surviving to Lesson 40 to take a Roman name or to Latinize all of their names, largely under the supervision of a senior Latinist quite interested in nomenclature, so my own interest in this topic has been enhanced by all of the above.
Obiter, this group allows archaic (and other) praenomina not allowed in NR, or other groups, which might provoke as much laughter from the knowledgeable as do / did the very early NR names formed by adding a Latin termination to anything which sounded vaguely Latin. Much the same could be said about the names chosen by some reenactment legionaries, but those preferring authenticity will go for genuine Roman names, not something bearing a very minimal resemblance thereto.

On 01/3 I paid $9 to cover my taxes for this year, but while that $9 is very much missing from my bank balance the tax is still listed as unpaid; and no denarii have been transferred to my civic account. I’d appreciate it if the censores could straighten out my tax status.January 7, 2018 at 5:48 pm #12431

Eheu! Silly me, I didn’t click the ‘return to merchant’ button :/ Which it seems is something of a requirement; which I only now find out *after* I donated a small sum to see if the denarii would be added. So if somebody could fix my tax status and give me my 45 denarii, that’d be great.January 8, 2018 at 7:27 am #12438
Tax status has been updated and you should receive your denarii in the near future.January 11, 2018 at 4:03 pm #12449
