Greetings from the Webministry of the Kingdom of the East!
Twice each reign (other than in times of plague) many of us dedicate
weeks of our lives to the exercise of giving our advice to the Crown on
who is deserving of certain accolades. And yet, each time, some number
of us have our time, energy, and hard thinking tossed to the winds by
the vagaries of modern technology.
Does the memory of all of your hand-crafted, locally sourced, artisanal
thoughts suddenly disappearing in a digital cloud of greasy black smoke
still make you utter streams of un-Peerlike language? Spending all that
time to craft a one of a kind polished response only to have to replace
it at the last minute with regurgitated mass produced anachronistic drivel?
We are, at long last, happy to announce that the issue of the polling
forms spontaneously and randomly failing with a “session timed out”
error have been consigned to the, to quote Petrarch, “rubbish heap of
history”. Now, upon beginning your frenzy of carefully considered
wordsmithing, you have a full day, yea a whole twenty-four hours,
indeed, even an entire 86,400 seconds, in which to complete your task
without worry that the ethereal grim reaper is coming for your prose.
Your Companion in shaping base shapes and flourishes into letters and
words that convey unto all the deepest secrets of the universe itself,
-Joel Messerer, East Kingdom Deputy Webminister for Services
