    ACTIVITY CHECK—The activity check is underway! If you would like an account reactivated, you can do so by posting in maintenance starting on May 10th 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!

    Hopefully the new AC date wasn’t awful for non-staff? If so, complain ASAP or forever hold your peace xP Our next AC will take place on Saturday, June 3rd.

    We’ve got a bit of MAYhem with this month’s writing challenge. Check it out?

    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 :)

    Students leaving Hogwarts should look for information on title updates in the next week or so. Those interested on applying for prefect when applications go up (June 15th!) should click here~

    Sneaky add-in! Congrats to Emma for winning April's Posting Wizard with 35 posts! @Tristan Michaud

    if I could marry Bee I would but I can't so I ship our characters instead.

    With the school year winding down, here’s a calendar of sorts for both IC and OOC happenings and dates to remember.

    MAY 15: OWL and NEWT testing begins. (IC)

    MAY 20: House Quidditch Cup: Slytherin vs. Ravenclaw. (IC)

    MAY 22: Regular examinations begin. (IC)

    MAY 28: Summer internships can be reserved. (OOC)

    MAY 30: Hogwarts Coming Out Ball. (IC – will have forum)
    Last day to submit house point adjustments. (OOC)

    MAY 31: Seventh years should post in maintenance to get RESIDENTIAL or OCCUPATIONAL usergroups. (OOC)
    Last day of term for students in years 1-6. (IC)

    JUNE 1: Students not returning to Hogwarts in the fall should post in maintenance to get RESIDENTIAL or OCCUPATIONAL usergroups. (OOC)

    AUGUST 1: Graduating students going into NEWT-needing jobs can switch into their occupational usergroups by posting in maintenance. (OOC)


    Networking is getting getting spring cleaned! We love networking, we really do and we especially love when networking threads are reused and updated, but we also understand that making a new one here and there is necessary. With that said, to reduce clutter in the forum, all currently-being-used networking threads must be marked "O" for "Open" by the Activity Check on June 3rd or they will be cleaned out!

    Don't forget, if you want your current networking cleaned out of plots/connections/etc that have already taken off, just post in maintenance with the posts you'd like taken care of and staff will help you out!

    The AC approaches! For anyone who has forgotten, that doesn't mean June 1st, it means June 3rd! Avoid unwanted character deactivations by making sure they've posted once since the last AC (characters created since then need not have posted), are listed on the CML, and the mini-profile area under your avatar is completely filled out. If you're struggling to find a place to post your character(s), Lonely Threads is always a good place to start either by taking one or creating one as well as the Networking forum which can help you find a thread partner!

    Students completing their fifth and sixth years can now reserve summer internships! Please be sure to read all instructions/requirements in the thread, and to claim your post starting June 1st!

    Students leaving school this year can also start to reserve actual grown-up jobs! The exception is jobs that require NEWTs, such as AIT, healers, and some other Ministry slots. Those will be reserved later in the summer. These jobs may be claimed starting May 31st.

    Lastly, students and professors are reminded that time is running out for House Point adjustments!


    NEW SKINS — Just kidding. I'm just here to taunt you with thumbnails:

    All will be revealed tomorrow
