I have been following the first meeting of the Comitia Curiata and it is very fascinating and exciting! There a lot of topics to be covered in each meeting, so I thought that maybe having each individual session and all of its posts put into a folder (or something like this) to be archived for easier access would be a good idea. For example, a folder could be named "Session I" and all of the discussions in that session put into that folder. I don’t know if this is even possible with the forum though, or if it is desirable. It’s just a thought I had.

Brilliant idea, we will do this!

You are welcome. Something someone may want to find could get lost in the shuffle of posts, so that’s what I was thinking.

Victor Cato sal.
This is a great idea Cato! It would make going through legal documents MUCH easier.
EDIT: This is my one hundredth post. Yey 😛March 11, 2016 at 3:52 am #3329
Not directly related, but the official copies of all operating procedures (lex) will also be posted here: http://romanrepublic.org/bibliotheca/wiki/laws.html
So we will have lots of useful resources and full transparency regarding all our operating procedures.
The idea proposed by Cato is ideal for preserving the record of the discussion and voting inside the comitia.

Good to know. Still important, for in that we can see the reasoning behind the leges. I’d also suggest that after each session the page with the public discussion of the session be included in the session’s folder, because a lot of the Comitia’s arguments on changes comes from them consulting the public. That way we can maintain the record of how the public saw the whole thing. This could all easily be placed in a Mos Maiorum subforum (if my suggestion in the Mos Maiorum topic gains momentum).March 11, 2016 at 4:39 am #3338

That’s a good suggestion, I think we will do that. It would certainly provide another layer of context.

Applying all of these ideas for all assemblies and other meetings would probably be a good idea as well. That way everything is organized and, as Brutus said, for transparency.
