Unto the Kingdom, greetings from Kameshima Silver Buccle! Following yesterday’s publication of the Crown Tournament list, I have received a few responses from people stating that someone’s title was incorrect, their name was misspelled, etc. First of all, thank you for this information, and please, if there are any more, let me know as soon as possible so that we can have everything correct and in order for this weekend’s tournament. However, my primary source of information when compiling this list is the Kingdom Order of Precedence (“OP”).
If someone’s information is wrong on the Crown Tournament list, chances are it is because their information is wrong (or missing!) in the Order of Precedence. (Of course, typos do happen as well, as evidenced by the consort who accidentally got the title of
“Ladu.” ^_^ But I digress…)
So please, take a moment and look for your entry in the OP:
Are you listed under the name that you’re currently using, and is all
your information correct? Excellent! Consider sending mail to the Precedence Clerk (firstname.lastname@example.org) thanking him for the fantastic job that he’s doing, maintaining this invaluable resource for the Kingdom.
Are you not listed because you recently moved into Æthelmearc from another Kingdom? Then send mail to the Precedence Clerk with a link to your entry in the kingdom (or kingdoms!) in which you used to live, and he will make sure that our OP correctly reflects your awards.
Are you listed under another name than the one you’re currently using? Then send mail to the Precedence Clerk and inform him of the name that you’re using, the name (or, in some cases, names!) under which your previous awards are listed, and ask him to reconcile these entries.
Is some of your information missing? Accidents happen. Send mail to the Precedence Clerk and inform him of when you received an award that isn’t
listed, and our crack team of heralds will get to work confirming that your award is listed on a Court Report and then adding it to our database.
The OP is a critical resource for Royalty and populace alike, making sure that everyone gets credit for the recognition they have received, trying to make sure that people who deserve recognition aren’t overlooked, and trying to avoid the awkward situation of receiving an award twice because of a bookkeeping error. But that can’t happen without your help.
In Honor and Service,
Kameshima Zentarō Umakai
Silver Buccle Principal Herald, Kingdom of Æthelmearc
