Speaker of the House
The Speaker of the House was a unique member of the Hexagon Council elected by the Curia lasting from 2007 into 2008 as part of the extensive staff reforms following Ian's purchase of the site. They had their own badge and broad access to the forum, although they did not have access to the most sensitive administrative tools. Their purpose was to represent the Curia in administrative discussion. Additionally they were the voice of Hex when important communications needed to be announced to the Curia directly. Finally, they took on tasks such as handling citizen appointments and open ratifications of members of Staff in the days when the Curia could directly oversee staff appointments.
The position was abolished in mid 2008 due to the role being far less practical than originally dreamed to be.
