Hi, welcome to the site!

We're currently experiencing issues with email notifications on site, which we're trying to resolve. Could you tell me the name of the account you registered with so that we can manually activate it?

Thanks!

No worries -- no need to change anything, just wanted to clarify to make sure we were on the same page!

Accepted now!

Hi, Karilyn!

Your application looks great, I just wanted to clarify a couple of things before we can get you accepted:

1) Karilyn's age is listed as 11. Will she still be 11 on 1 September 1959 (i.e. next term)?

2) In your biography, you write that Karilyn is 'not yet eligible to enter Hogwarts, needing to wait just another few months to enroll.' If she's 11, she would already have received her letter, so she would technically already be enrolled to start in September 1959. Did you just mean that it would be another few months before she officially started her studies at Hogwarts rather than a few months before she could be accepted into Hogwarts? If so, that's fine -- could you just post below (no need to repost the whole application) to confirm the answers to both of these questions?

Thanks!

Hey, Autumn!

Seeing as Autumn's already turned 17 and is therefore an adult in the Wizarding world, can you fill out the Elsewhere adult application instead? That way, she can claim levels as well.

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

Hi, Scarlet!

Your application looks good, there's just one small thing you'll need to edit before we get you accepted. If Scarlet's already 8 years old, she was actually born on 10 August 1950, not 1951. She would be 7 in 1958 and turning 8 in August 1959. If her birth date is fixed and you don't want to change that date, then she's currently only 7 years old. not 8.

In future, please also list your other characters (or at least your anchor account) for that question, as it saves us having to check who the anchor account is manually.

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

Hi, Callan!

Your application looks great so far -- after some discussion, there's just one thing we'd like you to edit before we can get you accepted.

In your biography, you write:
Quote
"Guess what famous top player will be joining my radio show this Thursday?" There was no hiding the excitement in his voice. Robert Reed Fraser was very, very excited about his broadcasting. "Is it me?" Bearnard replied teasingly, without getting any attention. "Giles McCorrin! Captain of the King Kelpies!" Callan heard the gasps around the table and although he didn't know much about quidditch, even he could feel that this was something big.

Given that there is already a set league of top teams in HP and site canon, we have decided that if you want to introduce a new original team, they would need to be minor-league rather than one of the major teams. This would mean that the captain wouldn't be as famous/one of the 'top' players and that it might not be an impressive enough name to get such a reaction from Callan's family. Of course, it's possible that describing Giles as a 'famous top player' is just Callan's father bragging, and that the family are still impressed  by this. If this isn't the case and you'd rather that he really was interviewing a top player, you could edit this to say that he's interviewing 'the captain of [major team e.g. Chudley Cannons]', without stating the NPC's name. This leaves things more open and fluid for everyone else as well.

If you'd like to keep the biography as is and just have the parts about Giles being a famous top player be a subjective assessment from Callan's father, you don't need to change anything and can just post below to let us know that that's the option you're taking. Alternatively, you can repost your entire revised application below, editing the bits I bolded above to better reflect the minor-league status of the King Keplies, or you can replace the King Kelpies with a canon team and remove the mention of any named NPC.

Once you've done that, we can take another look at your application. Let me know if you have any further questions about the above. Thanks!

Hi Santiago,

Thanks for editing that! (We don't have an edit button for applications, as it's much easier for us to track app changes via reposts instead.)

Your application looks great now, there's just one thing I missed when reading the first time around. Your lowest level (Divination) needs to be at least half of your highest level (Charms). This means that if you want your Charms level to be 12, your Divination level needs to be at least 6, so you'd need to take levels away from Transfiguration/Summoning and put them in Divination instead. Alternatively, you could lower your Chars level and put some of those levels in Divination.

Apologies for missing that the first time! If you could repost your entire revised application below again with the edited levels, then we can get you accepted. If you have any questions about levels, let me know. Thank you!

Hi Santiago, welcome to the site!

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

In your biography, you mention that Santiago fell for the Head Girl, Shannon Tucker, while he was at Durmstrang. Given that someone else might also have roleplayed being at Durmstrang in the years that Santiago was there, we don't assign NPC names to positions like Head Girl (or allow members to say their characters held those positions) to keep things open and fair for everyone. You can either remove Shannon Tucker as a name fro your biography and just mention that he fell for the Head Girl, or you can keep her as Shannon Tucker but remove the reference to Head Girl.

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!

Hi Sophia, welcome to the site!

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 Sophia walk away back into her shop. If this were a real thread, this would leave Amelia's player with very limited options to continue the thread. If you could amend the last sentence to have Sophia stay in the interaction (she could simply be turning away, but not exit quite yet), that would resolve this issue.

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!
