So, am i the only person who dislikes this format of reportS? It is so hard to find who got what… i mean if we have to go narrative maybe bold the name and award? i sort of liked the concise list form previous reigns….
Actually, I like it this way.
The classic table format will still be appearing in Pikestaff.
I am willing to try bolding the name and the award in the next event’s report and see if people prefer that.
Check out the report for the An Dubh event, Constance, and let me know if it is more readable.
