CDSL 13-01 Public Information Act -- update to “CDS” and remove references to “Al Andalus”. Only the Group Notice Guidelines section at the end appears to require an update. Draft language below:

The Chancellor shall ensure that group subscribers for the CDS inworld group are available at a broad range of public sites within the CDS, and at all official events. Posting access to this group shall be open to all citizens. [CUT NEXT SENTANCE] Guidelines for use of the group should follow those for the current Al Andalus group, included below. [END CUT SENTENCE] The Chancellor shall designate a member of the Public Information Team to be responsible for oversight of notice policy, and for assisting any citizen who may have content concerns or language difficulties, to post notices in conformity with the guidelines. Use of the group by citizens, within the guidelines, for any event which might be of general interest, shall be strongly encouraged.

[...]

Group Notice Guidelines

All land owning citizens shall have the right, but not the obligation, to have group notice access.

The CDS group is made up of persons interested in the project of CDS, so notices should focus on events within the sims. No spam please. No event occurring within CDS should be announced on group notices more than three times, including one announcement in advance , one announcement the day of the event, and a final announcement when the event is beginning.

The CDS community is made up of diverse and interesting individuals with activities throughout the SL grid, which also may be of interest to our members. Therefore any citizen who wishes to announce events occurring OUTSIDE of CDS is encouraged to submit their events to the Chancellor or appropriate member of the Public Information Team to include in a weekly announcements or otherwise approved for distribution and placement on the CDS Calendar. Events outside the CDS sims may also be announced by way of Group Notice on the day of the event. (one notice per off sim event please.)

All events should actually BE events, not merely commercial announcements. For example, a grand opening is an event, a weekend sale is not.

Events must be open to all (no discrimination) (except griefers), and groups are encouraged to open their membership to attendees.

There shall be no charge for admission to any events announced on the CDS group channel.

No solicitation of funds shall be made on Group Notices or on the CDS Chat channel.
I recognize that the existing wording for announcements has been in place for some time, and that we do need some guidelines. However, I think we need to take a closer look at what is acceptable here. For instance, we don't have very many merchants in the CDS group (merchants who have shops within CDS), so I'm not sure that a restriction on commercial announcements needs to be so strict. Also I would like to see guidelines to announcements about events not being held within the CDS borders. Here's my amendment proposal for this section:
____________________________________________________________________________

No event occurring within CDS should be announced on group notices more than three times within 7 days., including one announcement in advance, one announcement the day of the event, and a final announcement when the event is beginning.

Thanks for reminding me what the problem was :) Yes, it is to take over the mainland, lol, kind of imperialistic. And no one wanted to put their mainland parcel under CDS law and lose all the privileges :D

No, I have no interest to open this discussion again. Ambitions were high at some times, today the pragmatists rule. Let’s move it to archaic then :D

In connection with the Franchulate Act, I seem to remember that we had a discussion in the RA a couple of years ago, about establishing CDS Embassies or Consulates in strategic places on the Mainland. So we hadn't given up the thought altogether...

Thanks to Sudane, we have at least a CDS information office in New England, on Sudane's expense even, but that is as far as we got along that road (if I am not mistaken). I agree with the three of you here: I don't think the time is right to "invade" the mainland neither under a Franchulate Act or via an Embassy. It takes too much effort and money to keep it going.

A warm "thank you" to Ljubov and Rosie for your analytic law reviews.
