It looks very nice and quite professional.  We DO have a link on the Ansteorran
page.  It does go to the Stargate page however.  But my email (and soon my
sucessor's email) is available on that page.  I did like the way it looked and
you do have a lot of neat stuff there.  Lord Steven set up the GE list and may
have some comments.  As for legal stuff from a seneschal's angle, the disclaimer
at the end looks like it covers just about everything.  Have you contacted Pug
and discussed the page with him?  He would be able tot ell you if that
disclaimer needed anything.  I also believe he would be the one to authorize the
link into the Ansteorran page.

My name is spelled just fine.  Yes to email.  No to personal phone #'s.  Yes to
directions to populace.  Yes to directions to join the GE list.  No to personal
addresses.  This is pretty much the way Kingdom handles it.  Email is
screenable.  Even tho we publish our personal addresses etc. in our newsletter
that is a bit more discretionary than the web.

You could add that Caitlin is the "evil and perverse despot"  er....on second
though perhaps autocrat is fine.  Seren is feastocrat.  Their emails would be
ok.  Cait needs to ge the site confirmed but it should be at St. Thomas Aquinas that for later.

Have at it.  I liked the runes by the way.
