Greetings, my beloved East Kingdom!
I’m Lady Violet Hughes, the new Mosaic Herald. What’s a Mosaic Herald, I hear you ask? I’m one of the Blue Tyger deputies, I send out notifications to submitters when their items (names, devices, badges, etc.) are finished on the first level of checks.
I’ve been a herald since 2014, started off as a baronial herald. Since I started I’ve often heard “I submitted stuff but never heard anything back”. I have the feeling that since all emails were sent out in a batch from Oscar (the online system the heralds use for this whole process) that they ended up in spam folders and was never seen.
But now we have these fabulous kingdom emails! Sending them out separately from a gmail powered system might give them more weight in your email box. I also plan on posting on facebook and the EK Gazette that
So now that I’ve introduced myself, I’ll give this message:
If you sent in submissions the month before Pennsic then go look for an email from me.
If you send it in during Pennsic, be aware that we receive over 200 submissions there. Just for the East Kingdom alone. We break it up into 3 batches, so anything submitted there or in the few months after Pennsic will be up to 3 months delayed.
