Re: Bobbie Deniker - Treasury/Secretary Candidate

It was actually not in a discussion for 'Paid Advertising' in the slightest, I know this because it was MY motion.

Re: Creators' rights amendment proposal

But you view may vary Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk I was initially against making it a hard and fast rule because my input on stuff I'v...

Re: Committee terms amendment proposal

Longer/indefinate terms allow for a continuous flowing game team largely with a greater awareness and for handover periods where the incumbent can ensure a smoother handover whereby major contradictions can be briefed against.

Re: Committee terms amendment proposal

I thought the reason was about consistency which is you point above. How do you ensure consistency of plot if you don't know it?
