Coordinator (HC), and Assistant Head Coordinators (AHC ) either in writing via email, or via the appropriate Internet submission form on the OWBN website.
(2) The report may be written by any member of the storytelling staff of each
chronicle, but must be submitted by either the HST or Council Member, to ensure its
validity. These reports shall be due on the first day of March, June, September and
December.

(viii) Other matters the reporter feels are relevant.
(5) Disciplinary Report

maintain a record of all members given chronicle disciplinary actions. This list
will be available to any ST, Council Member, or Coordinator within OWBN.
They may ask the Historian/Archivist for the list of players, or may inquire
after a particular member in that regard.

(b) The permanent banning of a member from a chronicle under Section 1.d
or by the chronicle's disciplinary procedures must be announced by said
chronicle on the ST and OWBN-council mailing lists.
