So we target only stuff on new forms, kingdom stuff, and maybe devices
registered to groups (baronies, shires, etc)?  

And if we want to allow for older stuff to go in, we can list names for
submitters that we have images for (a huge list I plan to write up anyway -
taken from old LoIs in the Bordure files - I'm sick of hand-searching
them).  Then if someone wants to request to have their device added to the
webpage, they can print out a release form, sign it, and mail it in.
(letting us off the hook)  Now would the form (assuming we go that route)
go to Asterisk so it can get stuffed in the Kingdom file cabinets?
[Hmmm... she thinks, reading over Daniel's discussion again.  "Would the
_submitter_ or the _artist_ need to give a release?  Or both?  What a mess.
 Thank goodness for the new forms!"]

Thanks for catching this, Daniel.  (And cutting our intial target area

Rosalia, the images I sent you were likely not on new forms.  So we should
hold onto them for now.   Maybe store them until we know what we want to do?
