I have been noticing that you have been adding articles to Cunnan about SCA personas. I wish to remind you of What isn't Cunnan and ask that you consider this when editing. I do not know of most of the personas you have referred to so I am not sure how suitable the articles are. I can only judge them on what you have written.

Regardless, thank-you for making a contribution to Cunnan.

Thank you. I know of Duke Logan and he knows of the others I edited and/or added. I consulted him and Countess Esa if the pages I either created or edited were okay. I do not plan on creating any other unless they approach me to make their pages. I do plan to edit/add things such as awards and other non-persona type subjects.

I am still learning how do all of this. I havent been on in a while. But feel free to let me know when I mess up.



  • While checking the content of the pages with the individuals was indeed a most admirable action, that was not quite what I was talking about. I was referring to part of the policy on the What isn't Cunnan page:
Cunnan isn't a set of homepages
Cunnan isn't intended to be the site of pseudo-homepages for club, branches, households or people. They can have a page describing who the group is, who their officers are and where their real homepage is, but they should not be actual homepages with articles, announcements etc.
Likewise, biographical details for personas should only be added if the individual played a really significant role in their club, like wrote the rules or started the club. Editors are however welcome to put such details on their User:USERNAME page.
We decided that while SCA groups and households can have pages, it is not the aim of Cunnan to describe personnas. If we did, we could end up having too many pages on them and not enough helpful pages about the middle ages! The exceptions are editors (who get pages like User:Rohesia) and people of great fame and notoriety throughout the SCA or kingdom, e.g Cariadoc of the Bow. The doubts I was having was on whether the pages you had added qualified for such inclusion, which was a little hard since I don't know the people, nor whether you were still to add more. At face value, I am inclined to say that though they may be great people and great peers, they are not exceptional enough to include.
Hope that clarifies things a little. I have slowly been removing links to proposed pages for Kings and Queens for that reason.
