Greetings. This is a blanket note being sent to all the Editors of the CaidWiki. It has been approximately a year since most of you have held this position. The editor position on the wiki requires a bit more responsibility than the regular user, as you are a go to resource for people needing help and are a reviewer for the areas allocated to you (as shown on the Help:Team). If you'd like to remain as an editor for another year, please reply to this message. If you'd like to become a regular user (no responsibility, but still have the ability to edit anything any time), please reply to this message. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Thanks! --Kolfinna 11:24, 7 August 2009 (PDT)
Please join me in welcoming Lachlan of Cromarty back as the Administrator of the Caid Wiki. His dedication and devotion to the Wiki have been ever present since the birth of the Wiki and it is with complete confidence in his knowledge and leadership that the Wiki will continue to grow and prosper with his guidance. I want to thank all of the editors for your work on the Wiki. It has been an honor to be part of the team that continues Kolfinna's legacy ~ The Compendium Caidis. Thank you all for all that you do. --Valdis 22:07, 3 April 2014 (PDT)
A year ago Kolfinna sent a yearly post to all of the editors asking if they would like to continue in their roles as editors, saying that "The editor position on the wiki requires a bit more responsibility than the regular user". I am continuing that tradition and am asking those in the Editor List if they wish to continue in that role, or begin working in that capacity (there are a couple of you on the Editor list who are not on the Editor staff). Anyone currently in the Editor member list but are not on the Help:Team team may become a member of the Editor Team, just let me know you would like to work in that capacity. Also let me know if you would like to become a member of the Commenter group, you will still be able to edit pages on the wiki as a commenter you just will not have the responsibilities of an Editor.
For those who wish to remain as wiki Editors:
1. Please send me your email address - either add it to your preferences (where it will remain private), or send to me at email@example.com.
2. Add a note to your User Talk page (in response to this message) that you would like to continue or begin working as an editor or become a commenter.
3. Let me know if you believe your work with the wiki encompasses more that the area(s) you are currently allocated and let me know what areas you feel you can monitor/survey. Check the Help:Team page for the current list of Editors and the areas allocated to everyone. --Valdis 02:16, 25 August 2010 (PDT)
Great Sword of state
I noticed your addition of a page about Great Sword of State. I know of a couple of photos of (what I think is) the sword in use at Coronations. See Thin Robert of Lawrence and Ian MacAlister of Lancaster.--Lachlan 19:37, 26 January 2013 (PST)
Thank you - I added a link to the photo with Master Thin Robert, but I need to check with Baron Conrad von Regensburg or Countess Bevin about the sword used at Thomas & Elaine's investiture.
The confusion is that the photo with Thomas and Elaine is actually the investiture of Gregory and Vivian, which occurred after the War at Lake Havasu. See http://wiki.caid-commons.org/index.php/Great_Sword_of_State and http://wiki.caid-commons.org/index.php/War_vs._Atenveldt - Natalya
Much coolness! Thanks for the additional details. --Lachlan 21:54, 25 November 2013 (PST)
Editors - If you no longer wish to be an active editor, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know. The only difference would be that you would no longer be listed on the Editor staff, and would no longer be expected to assume the responsibilities of an editor. You would still be able to edit pages on the Wiki. Thank you for all you have contributed to the Caid Wiki! --Valdis 12:04, 23 November 2013 (PST)
You know how those heralds are! So picky with names!! ;)--Natalya 5:04, 21 January 2015 (PST)
On the plus side, I've gone through a lot of our orphan list and am not finding that the reason persona pages are orphaned was because they became "lost" from the OP. The main reason we have so many orphan pages is because our list of Caidans is more comprehensive than the OP can be -- and that's a good thing!--Lachlan 09:06, 21 January 2015 (PST)
