Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

The AC is underway—lists and deactivations are in progress! 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, September 5th. If you currently have no active characters, you may post immediately to reactivate one!

Posting Wizard has rolled over! August's winners were Bree (Edric Umbridge) with 230 and Kit (Roberto Devine) with 20. This month will be an epic showdown amongst Kelly, Fallin, and Lauren!

Our final batch of Summer Raffle winners have been drawn! They are...
A set (with rotating avatars!) from LadyHawke (Fortuna Lockhart)
Immortality DiscountKelly (Acacia Ruskin)

Thanks to everyone who participated this summer!

It's back to school day at Hogwarts! This means that...
  • All Students go back to Hogwarts today! The Hogwarts Express leaves from London and stops in Irvingly before arriving in Hogsmeade. Carriages take students in years 2-7 from Hogsmeade Station to the castle, while first years arrive at the castle via boats. Everyone gets there in time for dinner and the sorting ceremony!
  • First Years may now post in the Sorting Ceremony to find out where they truly belong! Please remember to update your CD entry once sorted!
  • All students should give some thought as to what courses they're taking. It's not mandatory, but can be v. helpful to professors (and disorganized players)
  • Quidditch Tryouts are underway! Please make sure you register before posting in the appropriate thread. Tryouts run until September 9th.
  • Professors should start thinking about class threads and homework assignments ;)

To whom it may concern, we still have an assortment of Hogwarts Staff and Prefect Positions open!

Please be advised that the school year calendar in the Roster thread is from last year.
(Kayte might have forgotten about it, and plans to update it this week!)

Happy new skins day! Our resident graphic folk and our coding monkey (ily Te!) have been hard at work crafting four new skins for this season!

Sweater Weather by Te (Prudence Browne), Hocus Pocus by Nolan (Burton Beasley), The Hogwarts Express by Bee (Elsie Beauregard), and The Witching Hour by MJ (Elias Grimstone) are available for use now, as are our summer skins still!

Got killer banner ideas? Keep your eyes pealed for our Winter banner call in the next couple of months!

Only six days late kill me, but the school quidditch rosters have been fleshed out! Unlike all of you, your characters would have found out on the 9th or 10th as they were supposed to xD Any remaining slots are now available to simply grab, but you cannot slide a character in if they tried and failed to get it already!

If you've made the team, don't forget to update the history records!

Attention everyone! Someone (read: me) nearly lost us the Play-By Directory. The good news: it's not all gone! The less good news: we are down to a cached version from earlier in the month. Please all take a moment to double check that your claims, especially the recent ones, are on there. If not, please update accordingly! Sorry for the trouble >.>
