Hi, Oliver!

Your application looks good so far, there's just a couple of things we'll need you to clarify before we can get you accepted.

Firstly, you have Oliver's birth year listed as 1993. Our site is currently set in the summer of 1955, which means that you'll need to adjust his birth year accordingly. Here is a useful tool to help you work that out.

Secondly, you mention Oliver's hair colour fading to white. Does this have a particular significance for/is it related to your planned plot for Oliver? If so, we'll need you to submit a special request for it. If not, please could you clarify in your biography that this is simply a genetic quirk with no real significance.

Once you've made the required change(s), please repost your entire revised application below, and we'll be more than happy to take another look. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. Thanks!

Hi, Emrys!

Your app looks good, there's just a couple of changes to make before we can get you accepted.

You have Emrys's birth year down as October 1939. If you want him to be the age of a typical fourth year (14, turning 15 in the school year), he would be born in 1940. (If you get your second preference of fifth year, he would be born in 1939). If this was a mistake and you want to change it, you can edit this to 1940.

In your RP sample, you also write the following:
Quote
So he packed up his bags and, without a word, returned to Hogwarts for the summer.

Students aren't allowed to stay at Hogwarts over the summer. If you could edit this either to refer to Camp Loki, our summer camp for students, or to another more general area such as Hogsmeade, this 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!

Hi, Phoenix, welcome back!

Your application looks great -- I just wanted to let you know that you're actually entitled to 8 levels, not 6 like you requested (2 per term for 1951-52, 52-53, 53-54, and 54-55). You also only added 5 levels, instead of 6, to your original requested levels.

Your current levels are C2D2T2S4, and you can add the extra 8 levels anywhere you like, as long as they remain balanced (lowest level at least half of highest level). Feel free to message me if you have any questions about this!

No need to repost your whole application, if you could just post below with your requested levels for the new term, we can get you accepted ASAP.

(Your app title is still listed as a WIP -- it looks complete to me now, but if that's not the case and you are still working on it, please let me know! You'll need to repost your complete application below when you finish it.)

Hey, Lydia!

Thanks for making those changes. One small thing: the final paragraph of your RP sample is still in the present tense. Would you be able to edit this into the past tense to fit with the rest of your post?

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, Lydia!

Your application looks good so far, there's just one thing that needs editing before we can get you accepted.

While it's fine to use the present tense in your biography, your roleplay sample needs to be in the past tense, as this is what we use in threads Please could you edit your roleplay sample so that it's all consistently in the past tense (e.g. instead of 'A broom zips by up in the sky above where she's lying', you'd write, ' A broom zipped by up in the sky above where she was lying').

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 Rowena, thanks for making those changes to your application!

There's one small thing that also needs tweaking with your biography: you mention that the family moved when the Hexenreich were overthrown, and that Rowena was only one at the time. If she's 10 now, she would have been born in 1943/44 (depending on her birth month) which means she would have turned one in 1944/45. The Ministry only began to seize back control in 1950 (with Hexenreich members disappearing after the collapse of the magical barriers in 1948; you can read more about the Hexenreich plot here). This means that either Rowena would have been older than one (closer to 7/8 years old, or 4-5 at the earliest) when the family moved, or that they moved before the Hexenreich were overthrown. Please could you edit your biography to reflect this, so that it matches with our site/canon timeline.

Your RP sample looks great now, thanks for editing it! There's still one moment that might be construed as powerplay:
Quote
It seemed fine with the girl, so Rowena walked up to the broom and picked it up.

Here, you're still assuming the other player's reaction by saying 'it seemed fine with the girl'. If you could remove that phrase or edit it slightly (e.g. to, 'hoping it was fine with the girl, Rowena walked up to the broom...'), that would solve the issue.

Once you've made the required changes, please repost your entire revised application below in the same thread, and we'll be happy to take another look. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM myself or another staff member. Thanks!

Hi Rowena, welcome to the site!

You can definitely go ahead and apply as an Elsewhere child for now and then reapply as a Hogwarts student with the same character when December rolls around. Feel free to PM me if you have any more questions, and I'll be happy to help!

Hi, Louise!

Thanks for writing that RP sample, your application is all good now. One small thing I just noticed is that you give your preference as first year. While we aim to try and give people their first choice, sometimes this isn't always possible, so we ask that people put a secondary preference too. Usually, people choose consecutive years (e.g. 1st year (preferred), 2nd year), but it's entirely up to you.

Could you let me know what your second choice of year would be if you couldn't get 1st year? No need to repost your whole application, just post your choice below and then we can get you accepted.

Thanks!
