[ANSTHRLD] Kingdom Submissions Statistics

Just as a follow-up, there were 6 submissions withdrawn during the
time period I tallied up (Feb '10 - Jan '11). Removing them from the
return percentage drops our return rate to 18% of submissions
presented to kingdom.

Of the 25 device returns made in this time period, 8 of those returns
were made for conflict with already registered armory, 9 returns were
made for redraw or identifiability issues, 5 were withdrawn by the
submitter, and 3 were returned for violations such as the layer limit,
documentation of charges, or other issues.

Of the 5 badge returns made, 1 was for conflict, 1 was for a re-draw,
1 was withdrawn by the submitter, and 2 had multiple RfS violations
requiring return.

I hope that the information has been illuminating, or helpful in some way.
