Any enterprising Collegiates who want to take on setting up a Registry of Badges on the wiki in a way that makes sense?

Perhaps this could be a task for The Long Fellow or, when he is granted citizenship, the newest applicant to be the OAF.

That would be great!  No rush, just whenever you get a chance.  And please include my badge in the registry.

If "badges and banners may be adopted by armigers at will," does that mean only armigerous Talossans may register badges?

That is a good question and one we should clarify. My personal thoughts are that any Talossan can be considered an armiger if they have made a request for Arms. The question then should be, can a citizen create and register a badger when they either have no granted arms, or have not officially begun the process of a grant of arms? What do my fellow heralds the @Noir Eagle Herald and the @Noir Raven Herald think?

In my opinion, I believe only armigers -- those bearing arms -- should be permitted to register badges in this specific way.  They were originally intended to serve as a way to label items and members of a household, since only the armiger themselves would directly bear their actual armorial achievement.  The crest from the achievement was often used as a badge in part or whole, which gave rise to the common synecdoche of a "family crest."

However, it's worth noting that the badge phenomenon evolved from a mark of livery to something more akin to the modern-day logo, and often no one bothered to register them anywhere (indeed, often they weren't registered at all.  So if someone wants to bear a badge they haven't registered, neither law nor custom should make them feel like they aren't allowed.

This is all my own opinion, of course.
