Masquerade, Costumes, Costume Repair, etc.

I apologize for the oversight. The Hall Costume Award system is, by its very nature, somewhat random, and often the ribbons go to the bigger shinier more obvious accomplishments. I will bring this to the attention of the team.

Did the judge spend much time talking to the two of you about what you did, or was it more of a "stop and give away an award and keep on moving" kind of thing?

The fact that they would keep coming to apologize is ridiculous. Obviously something is wrong with the system with one person apologizing, but staff after staff is just bullshit.
What's this? I would be very interested in the specific particulars. I've heard this rumor going around, but I haven't been able to match it up with any names. Would you please ask your friend to PM me directly? I can be reached here, of course, or as "hazelchaz" via Skype, AIM, and Yahoo messenger.

The only thing I can think of that matches up to "...only give them to beginners" sounds like a confusion about the Division system -- Novice, Journeyman, Open Division. But I'd be very interested to get your friend's name and hear her direct testimony.

The suggestion of detangler -- good idea, I'll pass that on.

"Not helpful" -- please ask her to PM me the specifics. She can reach me here, or as Hazelchaz on Skype, AIM, or Yahoo messenger.
