July 2018 - Aldous Crouch - July 7, 2018


The AC is underway—deactivations are underway, and just a couple of lists remain to tidy up! Remember that if you lost a character you did not wish to lose, you may post in maintenance to take their soul back from the reaper starting Wednesday, July 11th.

We have made a change in policy regarding character creation. Based on feedback from our members as well as our approval/admin team, we've decided that before apping a new character, you must wait three days from approval of your last, OR post three times IC with your most recent account. You can choose the path that best suits you and your character(s). This change will be reflected in the appropriate on-board locations by day's end.

Posting Wizard has rolled over! June's winners were Beanie (Cassius Lestrange) with 164 and MJ (Elias Grimstone) with 98. This month will be an epic showdown amongst Olive, Bee, Te, Bree, Hawke, Kelly, and Trudy!

Our first batch of Summer Raffle winners have been drawn! They are...

A set (with rotating avatars!) from LadyBeanie (Cassius Lestrange)
Immortality DiscountBree (Edric Umbridge)
Featured Want AdTrudy (Davinder Patil)
Character Playlist from Cassius LestrangeFawkes (Temerita Reid)
Moodboard OR set from BeeKelly (Acacia Ruskin)

We still have two more drawings this summer, so be sure to earn as many ballots as possible!

And before I disappear into the ether, a few casual reminders for the month of July:
SWP8's choose your own adventure is underway! Reminder that it is your responsibility to keep track of your characters' threads, and you risk injury and ejection if you don't ;)
Prefect & head apps will be accepted until July 15th! New characters absolutely qualify, just make sure you get them to 5+ posts, first :)
July's writing challenge is onging
— As is Camp Charming! Keep your eyes peeled for fun OOC events this month!

Oops! I forgot when I did the raffle drawing for this month that we also have an Against the Odds on the table! Congratulations to Hawke (Fortuna Lockhart) on winning that one, albeit a bit late xD

Hello friends! If you’re reading this message, please take the time to do a little summer cleaning:

  • Make sure your character(s)’ CD entry reflects their correct usergroup and profession—especially those of you who left Hogwarts for good at the end of May!
  • Time goes on. Check your characters and be sure to update their age in their mini-profile if their birthday has passed since your last edit!
  • Check your adoptables, plottables, and lonely plots to ensure they are up to date. Anything posted before June 1st that does not have an edited/updated date AFTER June 1st will be deleted on July 23rd. Anything posted by an inactive account will also be deleted, regardless of dates.
  • Girls and boys grow over time. If you have a character that’s still growing, check out the linked growth charts and see if they’re due for another inch or two! (subtract 2-3 inches to get Victorian standards!)
  • Check on your Camp Charming standing, and link your threads if you’ve completed three this summer!
  • Update your summer reading progress!
  • See if you’re due—or overdue—for any stamps.

Even if you don’t want to do any of that—you do you!—just a quick reminder: our full admin team (Kayte/Olive/Beanie) will be on scarcity/absence for essentially the next week. Please be patient regarding new apps, character reactivations, usergroup changes, etc.!
