The following is now immediately in effect:
1. Commend

This command stays the same as it did. Players in coteries may continue to commend
descriptions, but they now need to also leave a comment with that action so that we
can have some oversight on the command, and know exactly why it was approved.

2. Reject

Reject is a new command that can be used by Heralds and Immortals. This command
allows one to reject a description as not good enough. As with commend, a comment
must be given when this action is done. The player will see the rejected comments
both in-game and on every successive login until a commend is earned.

3. Elevate

Elevate is a new command that can be used by Mystics and Immortals. This command
allows to mark a description as excellent. A player who achieves this accolade
will receive a useful in-game item as a reward. As one can expect, it is rare this
will be given out.

In addition I built a new web-based tool for Immortal use to help manage the
descriptions. An Immortal will use this tool to fix typos and basic grammar.
We are not going to use typos and grammar to decide whether or not to reject
a description - those rules are in HELP DESCRIPTION. However, I'm confident
that it will affect the chances of an Immortal elevating your desc, so you know.

If you are online, you will receive an in-game message when your desc is
approved.

Hopefully you will find these changes for the better, as will our staff.

tl/dr

mystics reward desc for excellent desc. heralds reject desc for nonsensical desc. somewhere you guys will figure it out. meanwhile immortals are there to help clean up typoes and grammar.

over time there will be a built up repository of excellent desc which everyone can look at for examples, and you guys (mystics and heralds that is) will be building it

its beautiful. Drink it in.

I'm really happy about this new feature. I don't know how many times I've found typos/spelling/grammar issues in your descs and have had to ask you to change it when I know you'd rather be ranking or whatever. Believe me, I know you'd rather be having fun than wrestling with the text editor! This way imms can now fix your typos for you, which I'm all for.
