Now don't let's start that again!

[We have woggle (currently playing, whom you're talking about) and 
Wooble (lurking and/or gone).  It was an in-joke briefly to use 
"wobble" for one of them to cause confusion].

Whoops, hit Enter too early.

I initiate an Agoran decision to determine the new Registrar. For this
decision, the vote collector is the IADoP and the valid options are the
current players.

CoE: It isn't, I submitted a proposal in a Referee's report a while
back, and I don't think it's been distributed yet.

Also, congratulations on your promotion to Promotor!

Then let's try to fulfill your condition. Most offices are currently
held, but if their duties are fulfilled is another question. We're
missing an Arbitor, an Promotor and an GNP Minister. I'd suggest to
ignore the GNP Minister for now, we can take care of that one once
everything else is working again. In addition to filling those vacant
posts, we also need the other officeholders to do their jobs. Does
anyone of you feel overtaxed?

Maybe if we instituted a Variable Salary System in which the salary of
each office depended on each office's level of work/difficulty and the
supply and demand of offices/people, there would be more incentive to
run for office.

(I'm not up to date on the discussion threads, but H. ais523, please
note that the RCS log linked in the header provides a
comprehensive/continuous log of past rulesets and should be preferred
to grabbing SLRs from email archives.  Honestly, I think the lack of
published rulesets has mostly been based on it not changing for ages
at a time, though of course that's no excuse for me not performing my
assigned duties.)

I believe the rule was changed to how it is currently with the intention
that the change be permanent. The deputizing agent could then resign it
at the end if their intention was just to publish the report.

I'd appreciate some clarification here. In yesterday's Registrar Report
you referred to yourself as a Deputy Registrar, but in todays report
and also in the above signature you didn't.
