Greetings from the Office of Saker Herald



Gruß Gott!!  Unto the Good Gentles of Calontir, does Herr Gotfrid von
Schwaben, soon to be Saker External Submissions Herald, send well wishes to
one and all.  I beg your indulgence for an important, but somewhat lengthy,
announcement concerning e-mails recently sent from the Saker office.



You may or may not be aware, but the Saker Submissions Office is currently
in the process of a transition and expansion from Lady Alexandra Vasquez de
Granada (called Shandra) as Saker Herald, to myself as Saker Herald
governing the External Submissions process to the Society level and
Mistress Dorcas Whitecap as Eyas Herald governing the Internal Submissions
process within Kingdom. The expansion was done to meet the growing needs of
Calontir's submission process and designed to coincide with the end of Lady
Shandra's successful tenure.



Some of you may have already noticed and received notifications recently
via OSCAR, the on-line system used by Laurel Sovereign at Arms for the
heraldic submission process, regarding the status of your name, device,
badge, or various other items you have submitted for action.  In some
cases, that information has been known for several months; in others, that
information has only recently been made available by Laurel, or decided
upon at Kingdom.  In any event, during this transition, it has been
discovered that due to unusual circumstances a backlog in the direct
notifications process within OSCAR has occurred.  We are currently working
through the backlog and this process is expected to be completed within the
next few weeks at most.



If you receive an OSCAR notification in e-mail and you were not previously
aware of your submission's status, or if you already have been notified of
your submission's status via alternate methods, please help us close the
loop in the notification process and acknowledge receipt by picking up the
message.  It is my understanding the OSCAR message provides instructions on
how to pick up this message.  If you have not received a notification yet,
or do not receive one, it is either because you were not affected by this
backlog, or your submission is still in the commentary process.  FYI, OSCAR
notifications should only occur when a submission has been decided upon at
the Kingdom level, and Society level.



I thank you for your time and attention in this matter.



Ich dien,

Gotfrid,

inbound Saker External Submissions Herald
