In October 2022, the Imperial Government introduced a Petition System using the Votum bot on Discord.
Through this bot Lehmarkians are able to raise Motions, which if passed by a majority of Citizens it is then sent to the Imperial Government as a Petition - while the Imperial Government is not bound by a Petition due to Lehmarkian Autocracy; His Imperial Majesty William I, Emperor and Autocrat of Lehmark has instructed the Imperial Government to action all Petitions - this includes preparation of a rejection letter.
As a result of this development, Lehmark has invented a type of Citizen Direct Democracy and opened a direct line to the Imperial Government.
To raise motions ! commands are used with Votum. There are a few steps to preparing a Motion, however the below example will make it easier.
Command: **!motion** <insert voting type m (specify type)/u <motion text here>>
M represents Majority voting if not majority type is not specified the default is simple majority. No brackets needed.
U represents unanimous voting. Self explanatory.
Motion text simply, what is your motion - your question, suggestion, comment or whatever! Voting is yes/no/abstain.
Active Motions expire after 96 hours if no decision is made - Multiple Motions can be raised at once and are placed in a Queue.
Example Motion Command:
To start a motion with 2/3rd majority, you could use the commands (all are equivalent):
!motion -m 2/3 Motion text goes here
!motion --majority 2/3 Motion text goes here
!motion --majority 66% Motion text goes here
Unanimous motion (all are equivalent):
!motion -u Motion text goes here
!motion --unanimous Motion text goes here
!motion -m 100% Motion text goes here
!motion -m 1/1 Motion text goes here
