    Happy March, Charming!

    ACTIVITY CHECK—The activity check is underway! If you would like an account reactivated, you can do so by posting in maintenance starting on March 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!

    NEW SKINS!— Spring is coming and we have three new skins to reflect this. The default skin also comes in a large font version for the optically challenged ;) They are as follows:




    Thank you so much MJ (@Elias Grimstone – Vernus Tempus) for throwing a banner at me [Olive] before I even remembered the skin change was coming, and (@Elsie Beauregard – Prismed Parasols) for her colorful contribution. Additionally, thanks to Lill (@Alé Salcedobanner) and Elaine (@Ambrosia Shinnickbanner) who also provided lovely banners at the last minute! Unfortunately, I ran out of time and didn't get around to the fourth skin <\3

    As to our recent poll, we’ll be keeping access to Herbology Studies (both sizes), Glitter & Gold, Sparks, Spectre, Frozen Flora, All I Did Was Steal Some Bread!, and Doe Eyes. This gives us a total of 10 regular and 2 large font skins to choose from this season! If one you loved didn’t make the cut, don’t despair—it may make a resurgence at a later date.

    As always, you can change skins by going into the "edit options" section of your UCP!

    WITCH WEEKLY—Just a reminder that the Weekly Wenches are currently hiring! You can submit your application to @Elsie Beauregard until March 6th.

    POSTING WIZARD—Congrats to Olive for winning February's Posting Wizard with 59 posts! Signups for March’s competition will be accepted until March 2nd at 11:59pm EST.

    THREAD ROULETTE—This month, Thread Roulette will involve group threads specifically! Bring your characters and your creativity to the table; we’ll be accepting signups for this until March 6th!

    MARCH CHALLENGEMarch Madness is up and running, please read the directions carefully!

    EVENTS—We are now accepting member-run events for March!

    BOOK CLUB—It’s back! Our current discussion centers around the screenplay for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but those of you who have only seen the movie are welcome to join in, too! We’re also looking for book suggestions and discussion leaders for the spring, so be sure to pop by.

    Spreadsheets are a girl's best friend! In this case, they are now the Staffs' best friend! The Student Clubs list has been updated, old accounts removed and seen a bit of a face lift in regards to organization. It's now an editable spreadsheet that you can add/subtract your characters as you see fit!

    Advisors and presidents are still listed in the class descriptions and are up for the taking as of right now if they are blank! For those you must post in the thread to claim and a member of staff will edit them in!

    Please read the the entire first post to see some minor tweaks to the rules as well as double check the spreadsheet to make sure that your characters are where they should be. If I missed somebody or deleted somebody I apologize, but I was comparing to the current Hogwarts Roster!

    Here is the new list!

    Do you play a student? As of today, student characters only are able to make use of their house skin across the board! Because this setting has to be set up per-account, it’s entirely possible that some accounts have been missed. If your student character does not have access to their house skin, please post in maintenance to get it sorted out :)

    As always, you can change skins by going into the "edit options" section of your UCP!

    Just a quick reminder that the Activity Check will be on Saturday. Please make sure that all of your characters are on the CML and the mini-profile under your picture is filled out! If you were accepted before March 1st, you should also have posted at least once this month. Lonely can help you out if you still need to tick that particular box ;)
