    It's the most wonderful time of the yeaaaaar! <3 The calendar has rolled over into October, which means that...

    ACTIVITY CHECK—The activity check is underway! If you would like an account reactivated, you can do so by posting in maintenance starting on October 4th at 10:00am EST. The exception to this is players with no active accounts. If all of your accounts are inactive, you may immediately post to reactivate one. Please keep in mind that it may take us a day or two to get to any new applications, depending on how long the AC takes to complete.

    As always, this only applies to accounts deactivated in the Activity Check. If yours was deactivated earlier for another reason, you are welcome to reactivate your character whenever you like!

    EVENTS — We have a ton of fun October events lined up this month for characters of all classes! (I am most excited about the Hogwarts Halloween Masquerade Ball, so make sure you check that one out. <3)

    CLUEDO 2016 — FRIENDS! After five long years, Cluedo is back! Signups are being accepted until October 4th. Cards will be passed out on October 5th!

    Lots of reminders and updates, friends!

    STUDENT QUIDDITCH: Due to OOC player availability, the played matches scheduled for November have been tentatively rescheduled to next term. The matches will still occur OOC, but just will not have threads associated. Please contact me if you have any questions/concerns here!

    And while I’ve got you here, reminder that we’re still looking for a Ravenclaw Keeper and a Slytherin Chaser! If you’re interested and have a student in year 2+, post in Maintenance to claim!

    ARE YOU A BUDDY? If so, please immediately check here! (Also if you’re interested in becoming one, PM @Theseus Greengrass!)

    ACTIVITY CHECK: It’s a-coming on Tuesday! Please make sure your characters are properly listed on the CML, your mini-profile is filled in, and all characters accepted on/before September 30th have been posted at least once this month. Don’t have any active threads? Check out the lonely threads list! Those with student characters can also check out Hogwarts classes and projects to earn a few house points with their posts!

    BOOK CLUB: Discussions are now up for Northanger Abbey and The Bell Jar! November titles will be announced next week :)

    EVENTS: The forum is now live for the Fall Festivities @ Tinker Farm—bring out your LC characters! Forum for the masquerade at Hogwarts will be live on Monday afternoon.

    October is almost over—how are you doing with your goals?
