The previous submission, Or, a dunghill cock rising contourny vert maintaining a spear bendwise sinister gules hafted sable, a bordure raguly sable., was returned administratively: “This device is returned administratively. The mini emblazon and the form in the packet both have incorrect submissions artwork, which depict a differently-colored spear and a bordure that is half-raguly and half-dovetailed. The submissions herald provided corrected mini emblazons in commentary, but the forms were not received.” Hopefully these issues will have been corrected.

Mason Arison (TY): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Or, a shark naiant contourny azure, and in chief a mace fesswise azure.
Merrick Maguidhir (Sundragon): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Quarterly azure and argent, a tower counterchanged.
Consider Elef Pedersen: Per pale azure and gules, a flameless cresset Or. There is 1 DC for the field and 1 DC for the tincture of the charge, in addition to a DC for the type of primary charge. There also appears to be a DC for a tower versus a beacon (There is at least a CD between a tower and a correctly drawn beacon...[Einarr Grímsson and Jacqueline de Meux. February 2007 via Calontir]).
Orabilis Douw (Barony of Atenveldt): NEW BADGE: Per saltire gules and sable, a dragon and a Greek sphinx rampant addorse argent, a bordure embattled ermine.
The name was registered July 2017.
Given that both monsters are four-limbed and winged, they could be blazoned alternatively as segreant.
Russell Rusli Marteinnson (GM): NEW NAME
Valarie Longbow (TM): NEW NAME and DEVICE: Argent, a dragon passant maintaining an artist's brush inverted azure, on a point pointed ploye sable a sheaf of arrows argent.
The Middle English Dictionary dates longbowes to 1386 (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED26018), and as -es is a standard plural suffix (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED14417) we should be able to drop it without any issue. A metonymic (a figure of speech consisting of the use of the name of one thing for that of another of which it is an attribute or with which it is associated (such as "crown" in "lands belonging to the crown") is quite common in Middle English:
Willelmo Suard, 1327 (https://quod.lib.umich.edu/cgi/m/mec/med-idx?type=id&id=MED44308)
inn Spaki (TY):
BADGE RESUBMISSION from Laurel, January 2018: Argent,
within the horns of a increscent gules in pale a wolf's head cabossed
and in saltire two roses sable, slipped and leaved vert.
The previous submission, Argent, within the horns of a decrescent gules in pale a wolf's head cabossed and in saltire two roses sable, slipped and leaved vert., was returned “for use of the restricted motif of the Red Crescent, which is a single gules decrescent on any argent background or in any way that could be displayed on an argent background.” This has been changed to an increscent. The use of garden roses is a step from period practice.
The following submissions were registered by the SCA College of Arms, February 2018:
Submitted as Anna Ó
Néill, this name was not correctly formed.
As stated in the December 2016 Cover Letter: In Gaelic, Clan
Affiliation bynames for women are formed using the markers ingen
Uí (pre-1200) or inghean Uí (post-1200) before the
gentive form of the clan ancestor's name. For a more detailed
explanation, see Sharon Krossa, "Quick and Easy Gaelic Names,"
Gaelic women did not use O or Ó to mark Clan
Affiliation bynames; that construction was used only by men.
The following submissions were returned by the College of Arms for further work, February 2018:
This device is returned administratively, because the black-and-white and color emblazons provided in the Letter of Intent are substantially different. The black-and-white depiction has the badger significantly larger than the spear, and filling all available vertical space. The color version uses a different depiction of both spear and badger, with the latter diminished in size to be shorter than the spear. This change shifts the spear from maintained to sustained, and the blazonable difference between the two is grounds for return.
Continuing gratitude for your consideration of these submissions.
