Rosenfeld boasts a fully updated OP of our membership et el online.
I see too many errors in the Kingdom OP and it takes way way too long and
too much to correct even the simplest of mistakes to keep my clients happy.
So it is much easier to keep a current local OP and let time take its course
on the Kingdom level to catch up.  Don't get me wrong; it is a good starting
place if you have no OP for your own group.  And recording changes in a
document for an entire Kingdom should be expected to take time.

    Hmmm ... officers, especially locals, too often lose stuff from

    keeping track of local stuff? Two more columns on the court report
    form: Other Baronial Awards, Other Baronial Honors (meaning champion,
    warlord, bard, whatever)?

What I have done is write the local stuff in the Misc column and then put in
a note that says that item is a non-armigerous Baronial award.  That way,
It's in the records (because if it ain't in writing, it doesn't exist) and
Zodiacus knows to just ignore it.  I've just recently been working on
getting our local OP updated, and the problem is that there is no record of
these awards given durring my predicessor's term.  So I definately feel that
they should be recorded on the court report form, even if Zodiacus doesn't
keep track of them.

As far as the Kingdom level awards, it would be nice to have have a local OP
for those as well, but I agree with Daniel that it is a lot of duplicated
work that way it is now.  I know in the past there was an automated way to
pull the records for just a local group, and that that system is no longer
working.  I don't know how the current Kingdom OP is stored, but I am pretty
handy with databases and scripting, and I would be glad to lend a hand
getting that system back up and running if such help is wanted.  I plan on
having a full local OP, duplication or not, but it would be so much nicer to
have it automated.
