    The new year brings with it a new month and thus, a new AC ;P

    ACTIVITY CHECK: The list has been compiled and deactivations are now underway. If you would like an account reactivated, you can do so by posting in maintenance starting on January 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!

    — The Minister of Magic and MACUSA President are missing—is your character, too?
    — The annual Hogsmeade NYE festivities are rather snowed under. Have you been caught in the surprise blizzard?
    Other holiday events are still in full swing!

    HOGWARTS VACANCIES: As of this AC, we have prefect, staffing, and quidditch vacancies at Hogwarts that would love filling! They are as follows:

    To make a new professor, reserve in occupations! Existing characters wanting to make the career jump should hit up maintenance. Those interested in serving as prefect should check out the instructions, and would-be quidditch players should hit maintenance after checking to see when the post they want was vacated.

    POSTING WIZARD: Whoops—we forgot about this again! xD Signups for January will be open until the 5th to make up for it, and the winner from December will be announced this week :)

    WINTER LABYRINTH: It’s back! Are you brave enough to attempt it?

    MONTHLY CHALLENGE: Bee’s whipped up a two-for-one deal on this month’s monthly challenge, so check it out! Remember, all applicable threads must be finished in January in order to earn you the stamps!
