Found at Lost&Found: True Love

“I was looking for my hoodie without expectation to find anything else than smelly beer-drained T-shirts, and there he was!”

AEGEE-Bielefeld member Anna Pamplona

We are delighted to announce that the Lost&Found made by the local organizers of Agora Bucuresti turned out to be exceptionally useful!

This morning in the gym, AEGEE-Bielefeld member Anna Pamplona found something she never expected: Love!

While searching for her lost AEGEE hoodie, she dug until the bottom of the Lost&Found box and found something surprising: AEGEE-Leuven member Hemmo.

Anna: “I completely did not expect this, as I was looking for my hoodie without expectation to find anything else than smelly beer-drained T-shirts, and there he was!”

Hemmo couldn’t have been happier: “I was feeling very lost before we met. Now that she founded me, it really felt like a new contact was formed.”

AEGEE-Wiesbaden-Mainz member Maya is still looking for her dignity, which she lost during the vampire party last night. It was unfortunately not at the Lost & Found.

TIMO ADMITS: There are more directions than just Left & Right

Mr. Left & Right Timo, Chairperson of the Agora just made a statement about directions, admitting there are more directions than just left and right. To show this to the Agora, he showed his amazing dance movements to bend into all directions he could imagine.

What can be seen is that he still moves a bit to the right (from his point of view), but we see an improvement for the future.

BREAKING: SPRING AGORA 2020 HOST CONFIRMED

With great pleasure we are announced that with extensive investigative journalism, our reporter Гуннаря Земля have found out who will be the hosting local of Spring Agora 2020!

AEGEE-Vladivostok will host Spring Agora Vladivostok 2020!

Misha Kavronov, main organizer of the Agora: “It is so great we’re finally able to organize an Agora in Russia. We are part of Europe too and we’re really glad to be able to share our Eastern European culture with you while hosting a really great statutory event. To share our enthousiasm with the network, we will soon release our AEGEE-Vladivostok song: Stranger in Vladivostok!”

Participant will be transported between the Plenary hall and the Gym in St. Petersburg by Trans Siberian Express, and to accomodate for this, the Agora will take 2.5 months.

Spring Agora Vladivostok 2020

Rumor has it AEGEE-Reykyavik will host Atumn Agora 2020. The only thing this Icelandic antenna needs to do before the members of the Comité Directeur can accept the candidature is to be founded.

Antenna Criterea Reform mistake: 75% of BEST becomes AEGEE

Due to a mistake in the terms in the Antenna Criteria proposal which was missed by the prytania, it now means that if the proposal gets accepted, 72 Local BEST Groups, will de facto become part of our AEGEE Network.

The representing BEST officer Cecilija was shocked by this fact, but explained: “It was in our statutes that if we’d ever would be able to fulfill all antenna criteria of being an AEGEE-antenna, we would automatically become one.”

Gunnar remembers this being added to the CIA in Summer Agora Arnhem 2001: “Yes, I came up with the proposal for this myself. And because I was the only participant there, the motion was accepted.”

As of today, several cities have now 2 antennae. This will be resolved by slightly changing the name of the newly added antenna. The second AEGEE-Aachen will for example now become AEGEE-Aix-la-Chapelle, and the second AEGEE-Mainz-Wiesbaden will be called AEGEE-Wiesbaden-Mainz.

Charlie from AEGEE-Mainz-Wiesbaden already announced that to celebrate this, they will organize an AEGEE-Mainz-Wiesbaden-Wiesbaden-Mainz Exchange to get to know their new closest antenna.

EOT6 STAGED: “never went anywhere by train”

Today, during the Europe on Track presentation, the wrong presentation was accidentally shown. It was a making-off video, where it was shown how all the nice video’s were all staged and made in a studio in front of a green screen.

Hanna from EoT admits the hoax: “Yes, we messed up. We used the Interrail tickets just to go on holiday. For the next EOT, we will provide better education to our video editors.”

During Agora Salerno this will be furtherly discussed as there is no time left to do it during Agora Bucuresti.

BREAKING: AEGEE IN SHUTDOWN IF BUDGET NOT APPROVED

If the Financial Budget is not approved, AEGEE-Europe will go in a “Statutory Shutdown”, and the members of the Comité Directeur will not get paid their fee for as long as the shutdown lasts. All European Bodies will come to a halt and Europe on Track will be stranded wherever they currently are.

The Juridical Committe explains: “If any antenna has any events already planned, they can go on, but any new events will not be able to be planned until the Financial Budget is approved.”

The plenary session ended in total chaos after the Juridical Committe announced this.

I, Anna Pamplona, am Gunnar Erth

Off course everybody knew already, but I think it’s time we make an official statement about this: “Yes, Anna Pamplona is me, Gunnar Erth. I used to make the Golden Times, which was a satirical fake news website meant to entertain participants of the Agora during boring plenaries. I founded the Silver Times because I wanted to publish some real proper journalism, and I am very happy that so many people like my articles here on the Silver Times.”

COPYRIGHT BATTLE – Comité Directeur versus Silver Times

During these past few days the Silver Times has been publishing many articles on relevant topics related to the Agora in Bucharest. In many posts copyright free images were used, however we are only human and we messed up. During the Statement on Copyrighted images, we found that we should also make statement.

The picture below was used by our reporter Anna Pamplona but she forgot to check the copyright status. Anna explains: “I would like to give my sincere apologies to the members of the Comité Directeur, and will never forget to check copyrights again”.

Dutchies complain: Question line should be reformed

During last night’s social program plenary, the question line for a candidate for a European body was a big mess. That’s why delegates of 3 locals who often participate in question lines (and let’s name the fact here: All Dutchies) will have a motion at the next Agora to reform the question line.

Regular question line participant Hicham: “I really liked the idea, but the music was way too loud and the plenary was way to chaotic. I think my question wasn’t even heard.”

Chairperson (and Dutchie) Timo admits it was a bit chaotic: “It was by far the most chaotic plenary I’ve ever experienced. I will be discussing with the rest of the Chair team of the Agora how we can improve things for tomorrow’s social program plenary, but for the next agora it should be drastically reformed.”

BREAKING NEWS – VOTING CANCELLED

Breaking news from our undercover reporter in the plenary hall as the visitors have left the room and only delegates and the Chair team of the Agora remain: Voting was cancelled and the delegates movie night has just begun. Thanks to a partnership with a major Romanian cinema, the movie Avengers:Endgame will be shown.
