State of the Nation - August 2011
August has been a milestone month for Byzantium Novum. We have reached and surpassed 200 official Citizens!
We now have 206 Byzantine Citizens, a gain of 14 this month overall. That is above our usual average so many thanks to everyone who has helped to get the word out! Posting an putting ads out on local forums such as Craig's List really does make a difference and this month is the proof...
We also have a total of 2,250 people who have friended Byzantium Novum on Facebook, a gain of 146 more people able to see our public posts and updates. This is also important as it is still important to get the word out that Byzantium has returned and is building again.
The Byzantium Novum Senate is currently finishing up it's August session. New Senate votes votes will be completed shortly and announced in the various public lists in the next few days.
The other good news is that now that we are headed into the fall season things tend to pick up even more. Hopefully our rate of growth will continue, making our forums more active and allowing us to build more local, real world community connections. :)
I hope everyone has had a good summer, and wish you all a great month ahead!
Marcus Cassius Julianus
Senate President, Byzantium Novum
