Changes on 2/25

First, the use of class here refers to which of the three classes is being bestowed on the recipient not their status as a Peer. The change made implies there is one medal for all three classes, this is not the case.

Second, there are non-binary people in Westarctica, "their" is the more appropriate pronoun. Enbys are more likely to default to Knight.

Third, the Knight/Dame class has only been awarded to non-citizens two more times than citizens, "often" feels like a better qualifier than "usually."

The rest of the edits were good, thanks!--DukeBearPeninsula (talk) 20:27, 25 February 2020 (UTC)


The Noble Order of Westarctica has a solid blue sash which holders wear. The medals shown here imply that a similar blue sash would also be worn by recipients of THIS honor (?) and that knights commander would have a sash with blue and white vertical stripes, n'est-ce Pas?? Or does this order not entitle the recipient to a sash at all? Clarification needed. Thanks! Baron of Bastanchury (talk) 07:56, 19 April 2020 (UTC)

An excellent question! Technically, there is no sash associated with this order aside from the blue/black one I wear as Sovereign of the Order. Ideally, there would be a sash for the rank of Knight Grand Cross, but sashes are my weak point. Quality ones are freaking expensive, and home-spun ones are never as good as the real thing (although I have a red one made by the former King of Scone that is very close). So, rather than be seen wearing a cruddy piece of cloth hanging about my body, we have to make due with what we have. - Westarctica

I'm not sure where sashes are implied, as they are not mentioned anywhere in this article (not even that of the Sovereign of the Order). Additionally I changed the wording on medals bestowed. As irrespective means "regardless of," saying you "bestow the medal irrespective of class being bestowed" implies the existence of a single regalia given to all ranks (as is the case with the Order of the Desert Heart). I changed the wording to reflect that each rank will get the regalia for that class of knighthood, since each of the three has their own visually distinctive award.--DukeBearPeninsula (talk) 16:59, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
