I wanted to take a moment to explain how Her Majesty Margarita is planning to give out awards (new awards from HER reign as opposed to backlog awards) virtually for Ethereal Court.
One of her key desires in handling court is to make sure that the loved ones, friends, and households of those receiving recognition be involved in the process. Also, any orders they may be elevated to should be included. The best way to do this (currently) is via the EK Zoom account.
Logistically, doing this live during Ethereal court is extremely problematic. The Webministry is already coordinating multiple people – and moving more people into, through and out of Zoom live while broadcasting to YouTube would be a logistical nightmare.
In order to accommodate the desire for inclusivity, the plan is to present awards prior to Ethereal court via Zoom.
As such, you may be seeing people seemingly out-of-the-blue sharing their joy on social media about receiving an award – despite no public court. This is NOT an oversight – the following Ethereal court will be when you see that person receiving their recognition (that is also when it will be made official in the report to be included in the Order of Precedence).
I wanted to take a moment to share this with you to alleviate any confusion or concerns and be fully transparent with what is going on as we continue to work through this unprecedented situation.
Please note that this may also be subject to change going forward.
Thank you for your kindness and understanding. If you have questions or concerns, please message me privately via email – brigantia at eastkingdom dot org.
