8.5.1 House Appointments (of City Ruling Council Seats)
In addition to the House positions which the House Leader may appoint, some more influential houses also have the privilege of appointing one or two seats in the ruling council of their home cities. The House Leader, only, may make these appointments using the following: - APPOINTMENTS - shows what appointments are available and, if relevant, which have been filled, and by whom. - APPOINT SEAT <#> <person> - offer the appointment of a given seat, generally in the range of 1-4, to someone. Who Can Be Appointed -------------------- - Citizens only. - 300 hours in realms, minimum. - Level 50 minimum. - Not already in the Ruling Council. - Mortal only. - Only one outstanding offer of appointment at a time, for a given person. Explanation of Terms -------------------- If you see something like the following: Seat # is held by <person> ; Appointee is: (nobody) (still appointable) This means that "person" holds the seat. In other words, person is the 'seat holder' and is in office and has the seat. The phrase "(still appointable)" means that, if desired, the seat could be offered to someone else, by APPOINT SEAT # <newperson>. In other words, it means that you are still able to appoint someone to the seat - someone other than whoever is in the seat right now! If you APPOINT SEAT # <newperson> then "newperson" becomes the appointee. This means that "newperson" has the option to accept your appointment. After this, the "newperson" (the appointee) could either accept or decline. Accept ------ If "newperson" accepts the appointment, then "newperson" takes the seat, and the old seat holder is out. Now you have used up your appointment and it will no longer say "(still appointable)." Decline ------- If "newperson" declines the appointment, then "newperson" is no longer your appointee, and you could still offer the appointment to someone else.
