(Just a reminder that if you do choose to apply Brian as a student in the future, we can't guarantee that he will get the year you'll have been playing him as, though we do try our best to accommodate people's requests. Similarly, if you mention his Hogwarts house in your posts, we can't guarantee a place there for him either.)

Accepted!

Thank you for editing that!

I missed this the first time around (sorry!), but there's one more minor thing we'll need you to change before we can get you accepted.

At the end of your RP sample, you have Barron leaving the interaction with Evangeline. Even though this is just a sample, we ask that people write as though responding to a real thread, and this ending wouldn't leave much room for Evangeline to continue the interaction. If you could edit the final sentence to have Barron stay in the interaction (he can certainly turn away from Evangeline), that would be great.

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

Thank you! You won’t be able to edit your original post (it makes it harder for us to track when changes have been made, so the option isn’t available), but you should be able to quote it (envelope button with a pencil in the corner), make the changes, and then post it as a new reply. Let me know if you need more help with it!

Hi Helena, and welcome to the site!

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

In your biography, you write:
Quote
When she was nine years old, Helena’s mother was teaching her how to read tea leaves, and Helena warned her that her father was going to be in an accident the next week, and he should be careful. Not even a week later, her father took a nasty fall off his broom when it malfunctioned, and had to be rushed to the hospital.

This is pretty powerful magic for a child -- according to our magical rules, it's equivalent to at least a N.E.W.T. student. Whilst magic in children can be powerful, it's also a lot more volatile and less controlled than comes across in Helena's display of it, so you'll need to edit the display of magic to be more in line with this. You could change it to something like Helena having a sudden and very strong fear about her father leaving, but being unable to explain why, for example. Removing the smaller details (e.g. it being an accident and occurring next week) would make it more plausible.

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. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself or another administrator. Thanks!

Hi, Barron!

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

In your original application, you applied to Hogwarts with Barron as a second year and your application was accepted. This means that in our canon, Barron was already enrolled at Hogwarts in his second year, whilst your current application seems to imply that he was not ('For the past three years, Barron has been attending Beauxbatons Academy of Magic').

To prevent any confusion and to keep our canon logical, you'll need to go through your application and change any elements of Barron's history that suggest he was at Beauxbatons in his second year so that it matches your original application. If you want to keep Beauxbatons as his current school until now, you could say that Barron attended Hogwarts in his second year, transferred to Beauxbatons for his third and fourth, and is now transferring back again for his fifth.

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. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks!

Hi, Devin!

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

In your biography, you write the following:
Quote
Marlestowe is the Chief Publicist for the Puddlemere United Quidditch team; his campaigns have led to Puddlemere United being the most advertised team in the league (for better or worse). 

Given that Chief Publicist is a very specific and senior position that could affect other members, you'll need to change this to simply 'publicist'. You'll also need to edit out the claim that Puddlemere United is 'the most advertised team in the league', as this assumption affects every other team and any characters involved in them. Something like 'his work has contributed to Puddlemere United being well/heavily advertised in the league' would solve the issue.

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!
