I have three questions/requests to make for the censores.
I. I see that one of the citizens of my province (Provincia Mississippia Borealis), for which I have recently be named Procurator, is in the status of "Capitis Absens" on the Album Civium. Marcus Valerius Traianus recently sent me a message. I would like to know why he is listed as Capitis Absens and what needs to be done to change his status to Optimo Iure. Thank you.
II. I would like to request that the Republic permit me to pay tax for everyone in my province whose tax is listed as unpaid. The following names from the Album Civium are listed as tax unpaid for Provincia Mississippia Borealis:
Faustus Romilius Cato
Lucius Aurelius Maximus
Lucius Flavius Atellus
Manius Ogulnius Sacerdos
Publius Iulius Albinus
Tiberius Publicius Gracchus
III. Finally I would like to know why the citizen Servius Caelius Lupus does not have an order listed next to his name on the Album Civium.
Brutus Cen. sal.
All good questions Procurator.
Question I: You must vote and/or pay tax to have an Optimo Iure status. This status is only updated after the census which occurs in Aug. So anyone who is listed as Capitis Absens failed to vote at least once between the founding in March and the first census in Aug of last year. To get this status updated one must vote or pay tax. Then at the census this Aug. the status will be updated.
Question II. This is very generous of you. There are two ways for you to pay tax for the citizens.
One in USD ($9 USD / citizen). If you wish to pay this way make a $54 donation here: http://romanrepublic.org/civitas/denarii/purchasing
I will then see to it that the denarii awarded get relocated to the citizens you paid for. After making the donation post a message here for I can finalize this transaction and update the tax status.
The other way is in denarii (36 denarii / citizen). If you wish to pay in denarii then please send 216 denarii to the treasury by going here: http://romanrepublic.org/civitas/denari ... e_transfer
. In the comments section of this transaction mention that you are paying the tax for other citizens and name them. After making the donation post a message here for I can finalize this transaction and update the tax status.
Question III. This was a clerical error on my part. Thank you for pointing this out. This has now been corrected.
