Hi Rowena and welcome to Hogwarts!

I loved reading your bio. I can't wait to see if Rowena ends up finding out about her true lineage!

However, in your roleplay samble, you control Janey's actions in addition to Rowena's. This is powerplaying, and goes against site rules.

Quote
You may control only your character. You cannot post that someone’s character did something or said something without having that player's permission beforehand. This includes impersonating another character, or determining whether a spell your character uses affects the other character. An example of this would be:
          Correct: John asked Helen to come along, hoping that she would follow him to see the Squid. 
          Incorrect: John asked Helen to come along. Helen replied with a yes.

If you could please rewrite your sample application to remove all instances of powerplaying, you can than repost your entire revised application and we'll be more than happy to give it another look.

Thank you,
Marina

Accepted!

Bear in mind that, should you choose to apply Clara as a student in December, you will need to place a special request with the admins in order for her to bring her raven along as a pet.

Hi Zolderane and welcome to our site!

Your application is nicely detailed, and that's always wonderful to see!

However, before we can accept your application, there are some issues with your Roleplay sample.

First, you mention several times that Zolderane is already proficient in magic. However, children are not issued a wand until they are admitted to Hogwarts in the summer before their first year. This means Zolderane would not be able to practice nor perform the spells mentioned in your sample.

For more information on how magic works on this site, feel free to look over our Magical Rules.

Furthermore, in your roleplay samble, you control Janey's actions in addition to Zoldane's. This is powerplaying, and goes against site rules.

Hogwarts School Accepted / Re: Teagan Maxwell

Hi Teagan, and welcome!

Your application looks great, but there's one thing I would like to clear up before we can go ahead and get you accepted. In your biography, you state:

The twins grew up to be a lady and a gentleman, both excelled in muggle studies and basic magic.

But given that you are applying for Teagan to be a first year, she would not have had the chance to practice magic yet. Magic, unless accidental, is forbidden to all underage witches and wizards. If you could simply remove this passage from your application, we will be happy to give it another look!

Thanks!

Hi Louise and welcome to our site!

I loved reading your application! However, your sample roleplay, while it was also a wonderful read, does not respond to either of the two prompts provided in the application form.

If you could please repost your entire revised application below and instead respond to either Evangeline in Option 1 or to Hugh in Option 2, we'll be glad to give your application another look!

Thank you
