I, in now way, met to imply that the idea of the news letter was not "legal".  The Kingdom is working on setting up a coherent and user-friendly information network and I'm a part of this.  I simply wanted to let people know that there is a Kingdom Social Media Officer (as the title of the original post was "Social Media") and to let people know that I will be there to participate & give info regarding what is available and how it may help in the process of establishing the newsletter.  I'm just going to be one of the gang of people who are interested in discussing this possibility and how it will affect the Social Media in the Kingdom as a whole.  I hope to see you there!

Calontir must and should do what works for Calontir.

In this particular case, the East Kingdom Gazette is not an
SCA activity.  It's written and managed by SCA people, and
they write about the SCA.  But it's no different than if it
was written by Contract Bridge people about Contract
Bridge.

It's not unusual for people to think "it has something to do
with the SCA, the SCA must run it and make rules about it".
That's so common, friends of mine have been making silly
references to it for nigh onto 20 years. [1]

But it's not necessary.  Sometimes, the best thing to do (like
the original Kingdom web pages and Kingdom mailing lists,
or current Kingdom Facebook pages) is to just do things, and
see if the Corporation ever catches up. :-)

In my opinion if we are allocating space for meeting at an event it is an
official endeavor. It seems that we have a problem with fragmentation
ofinformation already. I would rather see us strive to improve
existing areas
of communication. How many groups have Calendars and websites that are not
up-to-date. Why Is it necessary to sign up for a Facebook page and a yahoo
group to get a full picture of what is going on in most groups? I am sure
the others that disagree with me but I would like to see the energy that
would be put into this project put into consolidating and improving our
existing communication. Please forgive me if this seems like a rant. I
usually like most folks lurk on this list because I wish to know what is
going on in the kingdom and for a change I thought I would add my thoughts
to the discussion

I believe the gazette-thing is for stuff that's non-official, and
therefore not quite appropriate for official news channels - a couple
inviting people over for a post-revel after an event, wedding
announcements, highly unofficial (or, heck, even slightly unofficial)
meetings of a sewing circle and terrorist society, "we're planning
on going to [period museum exhibit] if anyone else wants to join in"
announcement.

Sort of what the Calontir List used to do, way back when in the
distant past that the memory of man runneth not to the contrary
(aka, four months ago or so). Water cooler talk combined with a
departmental bulletin board, perhaps?

Drx asked me to add another of my favorites from Silverwings
Laws, written by Calontir's own Marcus de la Foret:

"There is no niche in the SCA so small that it is safe from some dweeb
installing a megalithic bureaucracy to regulate it as a favor to the
society.

(a)There will eventually be a monarch who will reward this dweeb with a
peerage for installing this atrocity. This will gladden the hearts of
dweebs and send them in search of their own niche to bless."

    Tibor, friend of Marcus, no friend of dweebs. :-)

During a recession!

Unemployed and underemployed heralds are now a scourge on
the countryside, annoying Peers through excess flattery
and performing unauthorized heraldic visitations in hopes
of being bought off.

Pregnant women everywhere are being harassed: "have you
picked a name yet for your child?  I can help: it can
be really authentic!  George is already taken, but I can
help!"

Everywhere you go, graffiti is scrawled on corporate
logos and sports team images: "this is offensive for
conflict", "bad contrast" "color on color!!!11leventybang!"

Thanks a lot, you bum.  Look what you did.

I was thinking of the other job where trained and warranted bearers of
beverages were made unemployed, forced to volunteer their services.

With the heralds, I have merely forced technology upon them, making many
go through remedial and adult education courses, or be out on the
streets, looking for Peers (preferably of stature but really any) to
attach themselves to.

Children of the Heartland,

How are you doing on your toy collection for Tots for Tots? Don't forget when you turn them in to put the group "Kids of Calontir" next to your name. That way we can count up how many toys the kids bring!  yay!

Our goal is to collect as many toys as we can for the underprivileged kids in our area. That way they get fun toys for the holidays.

Can't wait to see each of you! Be sure to come find me during the day when I am sitting in the throne, and I will give you a gift! 

See you in four days!

I have a great idea for a nipple-sterilization service

But I'll need to be made a Kingdom Officer, first.

I was privately asked if a group of individuals who started an online news site about Calontir would have to report to the Kingdom Social Media officer or perhaps one of the other publications officers.  I responded by saying "No."
Think of it this way.  A group of table top gamers from all over the world want to start a website devoted to sharing news about various games, cons, and gaming tournaments.  Wizards of the Coast doesn't care as long as the group refrains from claiming official status as the voice of WoC, or says anything that could be considered libelous.
As for the question of whether having a meeting at an event constitutes official is answered by current Calontir custom, which is NOT to make it an official activity.  One example is the group of people who participate in the enchanted ground activities.  At one time they had a small area of the Lilies site set aside for their very period camp and activities.  Calontir did not require them to create any bureaucracy.  I do not see the need to break that tradition.
In short, (too late) the official word of the Calontir Kingdom Seneschal is...Have fun making an online newspaper or whatever.  Make sure you clearly state that it is not an official publication of the SCA.  Don't print anything that would be considered libel.  Don't make me make a rule.  Calontir doesn't need more officers.

It is still a matter of pride to me that I inadvertently caused two HR memos in my 13 years at my old job.  Especially the one about the handgun.

Too late. The official rule is "don't make him make
a rule".

Just FYI. And it's pretty cool to look at the front page photos and spot
Calontir in 2 (at least) of the 16 cover photos. :)
