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

    And speaking of Activity Checks, we will be changing their date moving forward. Charming has been around a long time now, and its staff team has become more and more adult-y, which means more and more offline stuff that we can’t ignore >.> To help keep things rolling smoothly, we’ve decided to switch ACs from the first day of the month to the first Saturday of the month, effective May. This means that our next AC will take place on Saturday, May 6th.

    If you haven’t noticed yet, Steph has decided to step down from our staff team so that the time she can devote to Charming can be focused instead on posting. Steph was an absolute machine of productivity who will be sorely missed xD  We are not hiring new staff at this time.

    I, the illustrious Kayte, won the March PW with 112 posts, so that’s cool. The April challenge is on now—may the odds be ever in your favor.

    The April Challenge is up, time to try something NEW!

    And lastly, just a reminder that school is winding down both IC and OOC!  For the former, get those house points in while you still can by completing homework and attending classes. For the latter, please be aware that members may be a bit slower to reply as they (rightly) focus on their offline needs, and try to avoid badgering them for posts :)

    EASTER ANTICS ABOUND—Several dozen brightly coloured, rotten eggs have been scattered throughout Irvingly, stinking up muggle, magical, and commercial properties alike and assailing those who try to remove them, either by exploding, spraying skunk stink, or biting onto fingers and refusing to let go. If that wasn’t bad enough, some bolder eggs have taken to stalking civilians! They will all vanish at 11:59pm on Monday without any explanation.

    Hogwarts will be seeking the following student staff positions beginning in June:
    Fifth Year Gryffindor Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Gryffindor Female Prefect
    Seventh Year Gryffindor Female Prefect
    Fifth Year Hufflepuff Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Hufflepuff Female Prefect
    Sixth Year Hufflepuff Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Ravenclaw Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Ravenclaw Female Prefect
    Sixth Year Ravenclaw Female Prefect
    Seventh Year Ravenclaw Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Slytherin Male Prefect
    Fifth Year Slytherin Female Prefect
    Seventh Year Slytherin Male Prefect
    Seventh Year Slytherin Female Prefect
    Head Boy
    Head Girl
    As such, we are in dire need of characters able to potentially fill these roles, specifically current fourth years and male students in years 4-6. For fourth years, a list of adoptable and canon characters that fit the bill can be found here, or you can invent your own! #addafourth

    We’ve also got a shortage of student quidditch players. Simply post in maintenance to claim—students must be in year 2+, and beaters must be male. Vacancies can be found here.

    Males can obviously fit into either category to double up and win my love xD

    I'm askin' for your submissions once again! I'm starting a month earlier this time rather than 3 days prior to skin release day [Image: animesweat.gif] So yes, send me your banners on a PM to this account. Banners should be 800x350 and evoke a summery mood because it's going to be -gasp- summer. The cut off date will be May 24th, and GO!

    Just a reminder that we’ve changed our AC date—instead of the first day of the month, the AC will now be conducted on the first Saturday of the month, meaning the next will take place on May 6th, one week from today! 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 April 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 ;)

    While the AC and Posting Wizard dates have been tweaked, our monthly challenges have not, meaning that tomorrow is the last day to complete April’s challenge!

    Spend your weekend at the zoo, which now has a lovely forum for you to post in.

    Lastly, students and professors alike should be aware that there is about one month left for the earning, losing, deducting, and granting of house points! Anyone looking to nab some should check out this thread first, as it links to active classes, assignments, and professors’ year-round point grabs! I know DADA, at the very least, has a ton of points available for the taking.

    This also means that there’s not a lot of time for would-be prefect to earn good Samaritan bonus points before Prefect Season begins mid-June. Don’t have a potential prefect yet? There’s an app for that! #addafourth
