A Citizen is a user who has undergone citizenship, which is an award granted by the Curia for contributing to the site and community of Total War Center. Its minimum requirements are 50 posts, no formal warnings from Moderation for six months, and forum membership for at least two months. There are three badges of citizenship.
Citizenship offers a badge, username color, custom titles, the ability to post in the Curia and vote in its affairs (including patronizing other citizens or nominating users for other Curial Awards) and the ability to vote for Magistrates in the Tribunal. It is not required to participate in most areas of the site including membership in Staff or participating in general competitions. It is also not required (though it's encouraged) for citizens to participate in the Curia itself past the patronization process.
The role of citizens, the Curia and all related function are defined and governed by the Constitution.
Becoming a Citizen
Provided they fit the requirements, citizens can be patronized by existing citizens and put forward for Curia vote. The patrons will present the background of the nominated user; what they've done and added to the site, their participation history, an obligatory but random cute pet photo. A 60% support ratio is required to pass. If successful, the applicant may apply for their desired badge via user settings.
If you haven't been reached out to but think you would fit the bill, feel free to reach out to an existing citizen and see if they're willing to patronize you.
Once citizen for some time, a new citizen may patronize users of their own and run for curial office; they may vote and participate in the Curia immediately upon citizenship.
The three badges are slightly different in background and implication, but carry equal right to post and participate in the Curia. Citizens may choose the one that suits their activity best.
Citizenship does not confer additional responsibilities, ie, 'higher standards' of behavior or expectations to contribute more than they otherwise did. However, Citizens are particularly expected to follow the Terms of Service; if they are interacted, Citizen status is lost until the infraction expires or is overturned. There is a process called Ostrakon, which is the last resort for exceptionally unruly members and strips the user's citizenship. Ostrakon is not inherently connected to a user's moderation history.
The Curia has a long past of being a place to start initiatives and make suggestions for the site, though initiatives and suggestions could be done directly through the main Questions and Suggestions forum. It also has a long history of drama; prospective citizens will no doubt consider this, and some highly qualified members have refused or renounced citizenship for this reason.
There is a roleplaying aspect to citizenship, though it is by no means mandatory to participate in. Long lineages of citizens have often loosely formed into Houses, with traceable lineages that can date to well over a decade. Some users have been famous patrons who've brought in many citizens, or started a very long lineage.
