No I think it is done right. We are just waiting on the Dean to accept your request.

Would it be possible that as I am about to run a national election tomorrow to have the task assigned to a different member?

Absolutely. In that case, I'll assign it to myself, the Noir Raven Herald.

After consulting with the applicant, we've worked out a fairly simple design.  Purpure, a dragon sejant affronty upon a spoked wheel all Argent.

Purpure per se is not an acceptable colour here in Talossa.
So probably the Blue/Azure taht was expressed earlier may be considered.

In its present form, it doesn't pass muster.

Purpure is discouraged, but not prohibited, and the applicant expressed it as being their only preference.

On this I'd be a stickler for rules.
If it's a question of being discouraged, the prospective armiger was never discouraged on that score.
Secondly, he first said Blue and then choose Purple. So there's anyways an affinity to Blue.
On the choice of discouraged colours, I'd probably like to grant them only to such candidates who claims certain affinity based on education, regionalism or something similar and which cannot be replaced.

Many an armiger here might want to replace charges and or colour if them were permitted in the present case. Strict interpretation have been used in the past, and ideally should continue.

I'll respect your decision. But if this is the case, then we should amend the rules to indicate that purpure is actually a forbidden tincture unless the applicant has a specific and demonstrable affiliation with the color. Currently the rules only say that it should be "mildly discouraged," so you're proposing a pretty significant change.

I think the thing where he said another color first was a reference to Monty Python, by the way.

You are correct on the Monty Python reference. That being said, nothing about this process is that important Azure will be fine.
