Knock yourself out.
Just because you find my willingness to assist quixotic doesn’t mean you have to be condescending and brusque about it.
I would ike to see Mike’s compilation of design practices, perhaps as a link from our Home Page.
Alternately, if OK with Mike, maybe have the group comment/critique/add to etc. like we did for the AHS Gujdelines back in the day… and then post the final product on the Home Page
Lest my last post be misunderstood: Kenneth and I and others are merely trying to give others the benefit of our experience.
I’ve had the same experience as Mike Swanson of having people try to turn things I was doing personally into group projects. Sometimes you just don’t need or want help, you want to do things your own way, without help, advice, or kibitzing. Mike always made it clear that he saw the USHR that way, and people who have sought to get involved in his project—usually with the best of motives—have thus far found their attempts unwelcome.
Snyder I would like a copy of those PDF files as well. PLEASE!!!
USHR is back up and running with this message on its homepage:
The Registry resumed operations on June 29, 2013 after a year’s hiatus. The website and forms have been simplified to make it easier to register coats of arms.
Say that a few days ago. Very cool

Unfortunately, it seems to be pulling from an old database, which could be one reason it has been down. I updated the blazon on my arms in June of 2008 and the listing on there has my original wording.
My registration of 20100714A doesn’t even show up, so must be a old database.
If the project just resurfaced a few days ago, give him a little time to catch up!—remember it’s a one-man volunteer operation, for which we should be most grateful, not a business with paid staff; and we can’t & shouldn’t reasonably expect instant gratification.
Now I gotta register!
