Calontir Announces EPay Registrations

Gleaned from Facebook:


The Kingdom of Calontir would like to announce ePay registrations have arrived! Thanks to the hard work of many folks, but mainly HE Roise ni Ullachain and Lord Giovanni Loredan, we will now be able to take pre-registrations for events.

The first event open for pre-registration is Kingdom A&S. It will be open until April 6th. The EPay Site can be found at https://epay.calontir.org. This will be the link for all future pre-registrations, so save the link somewhere you can find it again!

Please stay tuned for more announcements.

Name and Location Resources

The question has once more been raised about including location information with the court summaries that Dorcas posts to the Falcon Banner.
 
We always link names in the post to 1) http://calontiri.wikispaces.com/ or 2) http://op.calontir.org/ in order to provide that information.
 
I want to encourage everyone to keep these two sources updated.

For the Calontiri Wikispace page:

For the Calontir Order of Precedence page:
Our Kingdom is large in both numbers and geography. Keeping these resources updated can help us stay connected to each other.

Battlemoor Date Changed

The following announcement was posted on the Battlemoor website www.battlemoor.org

Unto the populace of the Outlands and the Known World do We, Jaxarticus Rex and Anna Reginia Outlandium, send greetings.

After meeting with the Kingdom Seneschal, the Battlemoor Autocrats, the BAM council, and members of the populace, a decision has been made for this years Battlemoor.

Battlemoor IX will be held July 4th thru July 8th in Buena Vista Colorado.

There are many reasons for this change and we understand this effects plans and schedules. We apologize for this inconvenience but it is necessary, this year, because this site is currently the best choice for us.

Their Majesties are asking for feedback to gauge the interest of the Kingdom to see who is going or may be going with this date change. Please let them know at Falcon-Crown@calontir.org

In an attempt “to keep everyone updated on the Committee’s activities and meetings!” the Committee chair, Baroness Rebecca Beaumont announced the creation of a Lilies War Committee page on Facebook. From the About section of the page:

This is an unofficial announcement page for the Lilies War Committee. Lilies War is an SCA event held in June by the Kingdom of Calontir. The Committee is responsible for the year round decision making regarding the War, including choosing the Event Stewards for each year. if you have any questions about Lilies War or The Lilies War Committee please contact us at LiliesChair@Calontir.org or Stewards@LiliesWar.org

The Falcon Banner will republish any announcements on the page. Announcements are also usually posted on the Lilies War Committee Yahoo Group and on the Calonlist.

Gleaned from the Book of Face:


Greetings All Calontir Authorized Equestrians!

I will need all Calontir equestrians to fill out the following form (with the exception of any marshals who sent in Q1 Reports. I have the information I need from there.)

This is to update our Calontir Equestrian Roster with all relevant information for authorized riders and marshals.

Note: If I do not receive information from equestrians by April 30th (that gives 2 months to submit this information), then those equestrians will be marked as “Inactive” and any event that is next attended will require a reauthorization and new authorization form completed.

If you have any questions or issues submitting this form, please contact me at EqMarshal@Calontir.org.

Thank you all for your patience as we get our records in order!

In Service,

Eowyth þa Siðend

Introduction to The Calontiri Wikispace

By Mistress Sofya la Rus

Ed. Note:  The Falcon Banner is promoting the Calontiri Wikispace managed by Mistress Sofya as another tool in informing and connecting Calontiri. The Falcon Banner has begun linking the names that appear in our articles to the person’s Wikispace page when it is available, and to their Order of Precedence page when it is not.  Remember that wiki sites depend on users to create and maintain the content, so please consider setting up your own Calontiri Wikispace page and keeping it up to date. Thank you.

 

What can we do with the Calontiri Wikispace?

 

  • Help to get to know our fellow Calontiri better – interests, skills, personas, put faces to names
  • Make it easier to submit well-informed award recommendations
  • Let our various guilds and interest groups make their own place on the web
  • Give Calontiri merchants another venue to spread their craft
  • Be a place to find the stories and songs explain what it is to be Calontiri
  • Work on joint projects and plans
  • Whatever else we can think of.


Anyone can edit existing pages although only “members” can add new pages or upload files.

As an unofficial page, we will not need releases (Model, Photo, Content) – hopefully. But be honorable and get permission before you add someone else’s creative works.

 

Adding a page

Basic Instructions

  • Images will tend to look best if you align them to the right.

A note about Tags:

  • “Tags” are how the wiki organizes pages, using the “List of Pages” widget.
  • If you add the tag “people” to your page, then your page will automatically be listed on the People page with everyone else.
  • If you add the tag “herald” to your page, then you will be listed with everyone else who is tagged.
  • Tags

    You don’t need to be in full “Edit” mode (or signed in) to change tags.

    • In upper right corner, click on the “…” button for more options
    • Select “Tags”, then select “edit”
    • Type the first 3-4 letters of the tag name
    • Wait a moment for the wiki to bring up the tags that have already used those letters
    • Select the appropriate one
    • If you don’t see the one you want, try a different potential tag – “Clothing” instead of “Costuming”
    • Capitalization doesn’t seem to matter
    • Tags should probably be more generic rather than more specific – so tag “music” rather than “vocal music”, “weaving” rather than “cardweaving”, etc.
    • A&S tags are based on the official categories in the Kingdom Judging Criteria, slightly simplified, eg. Dance instead of “Dance Performance, European”
    • Award/Order tags are based the official name of the Order, eg. “Silver Hammer”
    • Group tags are just the name of the group, eg. “Vatavia” NOT “Barony of Vatavia”.
