Wiki Upgrades In Progress – 6/22/2023

Greetings Ansteorra from Your Neighborhood Friendly Webminister!

I have been working with our Kingdom Historian, Her Excellency, Zubeydah Hanim, to fix some backend bugs with our Ansteorra History Wiki. As part of that, I am in the process of upgrading the version of the Ansteorra Wiki! We are a few minor versions behind, and I’m working to advance us to the latest version so that you can continue to have a great Wiki experience!

This means two things for you:

  1. All of the content, images, edit history, etc on the Ansteorra Wiki will stay safe and sound. Not only did I create backups before I started, the process of upgrading allows me to leave the current wiki untouched.
  2. You may still see the occasional error when you visit wiki pages. Upgrading versions requires me to toggle back and forth between the current version of the wiki and the new version so that I can debug errors. If you are trying to access the wiki and you get an error over the next week or so, wait a little while and then refresh your page. I will most likely have toggled back to the stable version by then.

I will let you all know when the upgrades are finished, and I’ll be keeping our Kingdom Historian apprised as I make progress.

Finally, since we’re talking about the Wiki — If you don’t already have a Wiki Page for your SCA Persona, please consider making a Wiki Persona Submission here! If you have a page, this is a good time to check and see if it needs some updates.

Missive to the Populace from the Kingdom Heirs – June 21, 2023

Dearest Ansteorra,

We have been overwhelmed by the love and support shown to Us since becoming the Heirs to the Kingdom.  We would like to thank Their Majesties for allowing us to enter Their List, the Canton of Glaslyn for hosting a fine event, and all combatants and consorts who brought honor to the Kingdom.  We also must express our sincerest gratitude to all of the marshals, heralds, list ministers, and water bearers who worked all day in the heat to make the day possible.

Our Society has a set of core values that We, as your Heirs and future Crown, fully support.  They are:

  • To act in accordance with the chivalric virtues of honor and service in all interactions
    with SCA members and participants;
  • To be a responsible steward of SCA resources;
  • To deal fairly with others, and value and respect the worth and dignity of all
    individuals,
  • To practice inclusiveness and respect diversity;
  • To promote a safe and respectful environment for all SCA members and participants;
  • To act with transparency, fairness, integrity, and honesty;
  • To maintain a harassment-free environment in SCA spaces; and,
  • To avoid behavior that reflects adversely on the SCA or other SCA members and
    participants.
SCA Mission Statement and Core Values (https://www.sca.org/sca-mission-statement-core-values/)

We publicly affirm Our commitment to this statement on our shared core values.  More importantly, We know that words without action ring hollow.  It is our goal to ensure that We treat everyone with dignity and respect.  In additional one of our chief goals is to grow our collective knowledge of the many Ansteorrean traditions specifically around chivalry, artistry, and medieval lore. There may be times when We need help or better education.  We encourage any person who has suggestions or concerns to speak with Us.  If you are not comfortable speaking directly to Us, We will gladly work with DEIB officer team and ask that you work with them to address your concerns so We may better serve the populace of this amazing Kingdom.  We will work with the DEIB officer and their team to make sure Ansteorra continues to grow as an inclusive and welcoming
place.

We look forward to serving Ansteorra and its beloved populace.  We hope to promote acceptance of and respect for the amazing people who make this Kingdom great.  We are ALL Ansteorra!


In Service to Ansteorra and the Dream,
Aaron VI and Nicollet II
Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Ansteorra
