Maybe we could do a sub-page. Try this Most Noble Order of the Star Kingdom/Ceremony for the ceremony description, and then you can link to it as a separate section. --RMN F-1 Flag.png CDRE Sir Michael D. Garcia, KCE, OC, GS, RMN (Administrator - talk - contribs) 00:05, 1 October 2016 (PDT)

I disagree with the order of information shown for each member. The current job title or billet should be last instead of first: [RANK] Sir [NAME], KSK, [PEERAGE TITLE], [BILLET] Or don't put the billet in at all in this context. JNeitz (talk) 13:40, 8 November 2016 (PST)
