There will be no online meeting in August, because of Pennsic and a small Internal Letter. We will pick back up in September!

As the in-kingdom commenters know in the Middle Kingdom we have two different Augmentations of Arms; the Kingdom Augmentation and the Royal Augmentation. The Kingdom Augmentation typically takes the form of the populace badge, however the Royal Augmentation typically takes the form of a single charge SUGGESTED by the Crown. Please note that this is a SUGGESTION, and the submitter is not required to use it. Please note that we only charge the submitter $ 1/2 price for the registration, as it was a gift from the Crown, and that money goes directly to Laurel and not the Kingdom. If you have questions about how these all work, Meister Konrad Goldstreitkolb has two letters he sends out at the start of a reign that describes these two augmentations and their differences.
At the end of the Reign of William and Isolde in 2017, They gave out nearly 200 in one court. Please keep this in mind when commenting.

I wrote up a bit about commenting. At the Kingdom level there is a focus on education and learning as well as registerability of the item.
What is really helpful for making decisions:
Multiple "No conflict found" posts - Knowing that multiple sets of eyes have looked at it is a good thing. There is no such thing as too many people doing conflict checks.
Verifying the documentation. This is one most any can do. First checking the links and letting us know if one is broken. Sometimes there are typos in the link and others the link died later. If you have any Appendix H name books used on the letter check the citation and see if the submitter summarized it correctly and that it actually supports the item as a period name element.
Citations. If you think it breaks the rules check SENA or precedent and quote the rule you think it breaks if you can find them.
Supplemental documentation: Often submitters do not find the greatest sources. If you can find better sources to get them what they want that is great.
Period style or SCA precedent comments. Again with pictures and citations are the best.
Possible conflicts. Please cut and paste the blazon from the O&A.
On the Education side:
Any questions that come to mind that you do not know/can't find the answer to related to the submission.
If you conflict checked give a brief description of how you went about it.
Any close but clear items and an explanation on why you think it is clear.
Not helpful and all:
Completely off topic posts.
Any posts disrespectful to other heralds or the submitter. Our Kingdom commentary is OPEN and the submitters often read it. Please keep that in mind.
Any purely aesthetic comments. I don't care if it is ugly unless there is reason it cannot be registered. There is lots of "ugly" period heraldry.
Arguments with other commenters that do not include citations of documentation, precedents, SENA, or the Admin Handbook.
