From Laurel, regarding Laurel level commentary:

Laurel commenters are tasked with assisting Wreath, Pelican, and Laurel in making good decisions on approval or return of devices, based on SENA. Commentary that is secondary to the point at hand risks readers (including the aforementioned) losing the point - a signal-to-noise ratio problem. Sorting through long tangential discussions does take time, and if the point is mixed in there somewhere we spend additional time editing the discussion for clarity's sake. In the days of paper, comments were limited by necessity; while the monetary cost of commentary is now negligible, the time cost as it impacts the length of decision meetings has greatly increased.

I recently addressed this with the Principal Heralds, and it bears repeating here. While I have often said that you can use OSCAR for education, what I mean is that you can use it to review what people are saying and learn from that on both how to comment and how senior heralds are seeing things. Questions not specifically related to the registerability of the submission at hand should be taken offline from OSCAR - approach the person privately, or ask another herald for more information or clarification. This is more respectful of everyone's time.

The Northshield December 29 LoI has not disappeared - it was supposed to be an ILoI. After being notified, I moved it to the garden where it was supposed to be.

Submissions heralds: The pairing bug that I've been muttering about for months and months may now be fixed.

SUBMISSIONS HERALDS: When typing in a new submission, the pairing pulldown will now change when you switch LoIs.

Notifications that Letters of Intent were issued appear to have been broken since June 30. They are (as I expect has been noticed) working again.

On the afternoon of 6/30, while trying to debug interest notifications (the "please notify me when this submission is commented on" ones), I screwed them up. None were sent out from then until about 10 minutes ago - and the ones that didn't get sent are lost. Sorry about the mess.

The commenting preview button will now only show when you have JavaScript enabled. I've also moved it to the right, so that the other two buttons are always in the same place.

For those who haven't yet noticed, there is now a 'preview' button when you are writing or editing comments. Pressing that will pop up a new window with the formatted version of your comment as end-users will see it. It does not include images. To enable this, you must allow JavaScript from both and from and you must also allow to open pop-up windows - many browsers block this by default. If you do not do this, preview will not work. It has been tested and shown to work under IE, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Anyone who can see an individual kingdom's internal LoIs can now search that kingdom's internal LoIs. Search is per-kingdom, not global across OSCAR.

The problem with ampersand characters (&) in uploaded image files should be fixed. I touched the code for creating and editing submissions for both emblazons and attached documentation, adding emblazons to existing LoIs, packet uploads, and comment images. If anyone finds problems, please report them immediately?
