I. Any magistrate elected by the Comitia Centuriata, Comitia Tributa or Concilium Plebis is to be regulated by this edict.
II. If a magistrate is not responding to attempts to contact them on a monthly basis for a period of two months consecutively (minimum of one contact attempt made each month) then they will receive a penalty as defined in this edict.
III. If a censor feels a magistrate has failed to uphold their basic duties of their office for a period of two consecutive months then they will receive a penalty as defined in this edict.
IV. The penalty shall be an immediate Censorial Nota (issued by any one Censor) upon the offending magistrate. With this nota the offending magistrate will lose optimo iure status and be deemed capitis absens until a fine of 30% of their entire denarii balance held in their personal account (on the date the edict is announced), or 100 denarii (whichever is the larger amount), is paid in full to the senate.
V. The nota will be displayed on their personal citizenship profile until the fine is paid or appeal granted.
VI. Appeals of this nota may be sent and granted by any single Censor, Plebeian Tribune, or by majority vote of the senate or Concilium plebis (if the offending citizen is not a patrician citizen).
VII. An offending magistrate cannot grant an appeal to themselves.
This edict becomes active immediately on this day issued VI Id. Iun. M. Flavio A. Iulio Cos.June 9, 2021 at 1:25 am #41255

This is probably the most useful thing you have done here in twelve months…
Inactivate magistrates must be held accountable to the civitas. A denarii fine of 100 is much too generous in my opinion.
I sat in the consular curule chair, the job is not as rigerous as it is made out to be. It’s more about directing people and making sure work is getting done while offering support. Your edict was written in plain language, so that is nice to see. The edict, however, is still weak. I feel it is necessary to have a clear and concise way of proving that the duties were unacceptable. A denarii fine based on century class assignment would be more of a deterrent. A 100 denarii fine is just not enough to deter someone from disappearing without a trace if they hold 900 denarii in their account.June 9, 2021 at 10:18 am #41266

M. Flavio Celso, sal.
Thank you for this edict. He should motivate the current team to be more attentive to their responsibilities.
But in order for the Edict to have not only the right, but also to be honest, we need to keep some kind of reporting on the current state of activity of our Magistrates.
Censor Varro, do you think it would be convenient if I now initiate a roll call of Magistrates in order to start the countdown of real presence, so that then this Edict can be applied based on some real dates and attempts to contact the current team?

Gratias for taking action, I believe this is a good first step in the right direction, and you set a good example with this.
