Hi Alex, welcome back!

Your application looks great, there's just a couple of small details we'll need you to edit before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, your birth year for Alex is down as June 1937, which would make her the age of a sixth year. If she's a fourth year, her birth year will be 1939 (or 1938 if she's a fifth year). If you could edit either her birth year or your year choices, that'd fix this inconsistency.

Secondly, at the end of your RP sample, you write:

Quote
she jumped and touched her shoulders and yelled “Booo!”


If Evangeline were another player rather than just an NPC, touching her might be considered powerplaying, as you haven't given her player a choice to decide. If you could either edit that part to read something like 'she jumped, intending to touch her shoulders, and yelled' or simply delete the 'touched her shoulders' part, that would resolve this.

Once you've made the required changes, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. Thanks!

Hi, Zion!

Your application looks good, there's just a couple of things you'll still need to edit.

Firstly, now that you've changed your year preferences, Zion's birth year is now a few years out. She'll have been born in 1939 if she's a third year (or 1938 if she's fourth).

Secondly, in your RP sample, you're still controlling Hugh's rat, which might be considered a form of powerplay. You'll need to remove the following lines from your RP sample before we can accept you:

Quote
She scooped the small animal up.She raised the rat up, examining it close to her face. She stroked his head, deciding that she was going to keep it as a pet.

Quote
holding the rat in her hands as she spied on the boy.

You can definitely have Zion attempt to pick up the rat instead (e.g. 'Zion attempted to scoop the small animal up, hoping she could keep it as a pet'), if that's something you'd like her to do. However, it would ultimately be up to Hugh's player whether his rat allows itself to be caught, so you can't decide whether she actually manages to pick the rat up.

Once you've made the required changes, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Thanks!

Hi, Daisy!

Your application looks great, you’ll just need to adjust your requested levels before we can get you accepted.

You originally apped Daisy for the 1951-52 term. As per the castle dropout levelling rules, you are eligible to claim 2 automatic levels for each term you did not claim levels (1951-52, 1952-53), which gives you a total of 4 levels to add to your current levels.

No need to repost your whole application — if you could let us know your new levels request below, we can get you accepted as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me.

Thanks!

Hi Odette, and welcome to the site!

Your application's coming along nicely, there's just a few things we'll need you to edit before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, you mention that Odette's occupation is Assistant to the Senior Undersecretary. For your initial application, it would be best if you could keep Odette's occupation as something more vague e.g. Ministry employee or simply an administrative assistant. The position of Assistant to the Senior Undersecretary is a very specific job and it may not be available at this time. Once you've been accepted, you may apply for that specific position in the Ministry check-in/sign-up thread, and the Ministry admins will work with you from there to see if that position would be plausible or not. For now, please remove all mentions of Odette's position as Assistant to the Senior Undersecretary from your application, as we cannot guarantee you will get that position.

Secondly, you mention that the Girard family acted as spies for the Resistance and passed information about the Hexenreich to the Resistance. While this is totally fine and you don't need to change this, I just want to let you know that you'll need to check with the admin team first if you decide to elaborate on any specific information that the Girard family passed on to the Resistance in any future threads. This is so that you do not accidentally undermine or contradict any plots that have already occurred. Furthermore, you mention that "Königsmann saw the Girard family as an important asset to Hexenreich however he was never aware that the family was undermining his plans from the inside out." Königsmann was never directly involved with any Hexenreich members and operated entirely through his second-hand man to maintain secrecy. You'll need to remove the above sentence from your biography to keep in line with the site plot here.

You also claim that: "At school Odette showed much potential and quickly grew to be the top in her class." You'll need to edit this to read that she "quickly grew to be one of the top in her class", so that you are not undermining any other played students who actually earned Valedictorian and Salutatorian titles in the years that Odette was at school. 

Finally, you write that: "Her father who was still an auror at the time, went so far as to fail his daughter when she was being tested." If you could edit this to be a little more vague (e.g. something along the lines of "Her father, who was still an Auror at the time, was ultimately the reason that she failed her final tests"), this would be more in line with how we envision the Auror training process to work. It's unlikely that Odette's father would be the sole decider of Odette's failure, but keeping things more vague in this way would allow for her father to be at least a partial cause whilst maintaining plausibility.

Once you have made the required changes, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact myself or another admin. Thanks!

Hi, Kathleen!

Your application looks great, there's just one thing we'll need you to edit before we can get you accepted.

At the end of your RP sample, you have Kathleen walking off. If this were a real thread and Kathleen had already left, it'd be difficult for Amelia's player to keep the interaction going. If you could alter the ending slightly (either by removing the part where Kathleen walks away, or by editing it to say she simply turns away with the intention of walking off), that'd be great.

Once you've made the required change, please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. Thanks!

Resources / CHARACTER RETIREMENT - A How-To Guide
« on: 16/03/2018 at 12:46 »
Retirement Process
A How-To Guide

A retired character is a character that has been played previously on this site but the creator has no intention of playing them any longer. They may be referenced in posts and included as general characters in larger plots, but the player has no intention of utilising their account again -- and thus, it can be deleted.

Please note that retirement of a character is irreversible. If there is any chance that you may wish to use the character again in future, do not retire them. You will not be able to recreate a character that you have retired.

The character must meet the following requirements to be eligible for retirement:
• must have been played for at least one term on the boards
• must have a complete wiki page
• must be one that you will not play again

Step-By-Step Walkthrough

1. Create a wiki page for the character if they do not already have one OR update the existing wiki page for the character using the Retired Character Template.

If you're unsure about how to create a wiki page, see this how-to guide for more information. Please note that you will need a wiki account before you can create a wiki page. This is not the same as your site account. To get a wiki account, please open a helpdesk ticket under the 'Wiki' category, and include a valid email address and the character name you wish to use as your account name (most people use their main account's character name for this). An admin will create your account, and you'll then be able to log in and create pages.

2. Make sure that the character to be retired is set as a subaccount if it is linked to other accounts. To set a different account as the parent account, go to 'Profile' --> 'Modify Profile' --> 'Manage Subaccounts'. If you need more assistance with this, please contact a staff member.

3. Submit a helpdesk ticket under the 'Retired Character' category. In your ticket, you must include a link to the character's profile and a link to the updated wiki page.

4. Sit back and relax! A staff member will take care of the rest.
