    That’s right, boys and girls—Hogwarts is open for business!  All threads from last summer have been moved to The Past, the Sorting Ceremony has kicked off, and students have the weekend ahead before classes begin Monday! All incoming first year who have chosen their houses should be set, too. Now that we’re back at school, come on down for house quidditch tryouts! Signups will close on September 9th.

    Prefects and school staff have been sent PMs (mostly to main accounts) regarding extra info for the school year.

    NEW SKINS — Where did the summer go?
    There were a record number of submissions this time around and it was SO difficult to narrow down to just three! If your banner wasn't chosen this time around, don't lose heart, get started on a winter submission!

    Previous skins are still available for you to use, and for those who are unsure how to change skins: User CP > Edit Options > Other Options > Board Style.

    The skin selection for this season is as follows:




    Disapparate! was provided by the very skilled Soph (@Ellory Pendergast), The Russet Revolution by the remarkable Rune (@Violet Wiltingham), and Wuthering Heights is a magnificent MJ (@Elias Grimstone) creation. An added thanks to the ever-talented Té (@Barnabas Skeeter) for her original toiling over the layout and to the incredibly patient Kayte (@Odira Potter) who was a stress victim of my leaving-everything-to-the-last-minute way of life but who was also an invaluable sounding-board.

    ELECTION SEASON: @Balthazar Urquart has resigned—that means we’re on the hunt for a new Minister of Magic!  Those interested in campaigning should sign up by October 15th, while more information on voting will be released nearer to the date.

    Camp Charming closes tomorrow (which, by the by, is also AC day), meaning today is the LAST DAY to post your completed threads for credit.

    HELLO CHARMING. Witch Weekly is a bit short-staffed at the moment and we need you to keep publishing this wonderful product every week!

    What does being a Wench include? It's very flexible, so don't be scared away if you're not sure about your ability to write different kinds of articles or if you have time constraints.

    A full time Wench is responsible for 1 article or ad per week. Like I said, we're flexible and we cover for each other all the time! If you think you'll have serious concerns meeting the article requirement, that's okay; apply to be a part time Wench (2 articles/month) or a float (coverage as necessary).

    Our articles range in topic and may include: profiles of famous witches and wizards, interviews, top ten lists, gossip, recipes, quizzes, advice, fashion plates, event features, horoscopes, book and play recommendations, and so much more! If you feel comfortable writing any of the above, you should apply to be a Wench!

    Perks of being a Wench include a shiny new ribbon, a pretty stamp, contributing to the board, and getting to start rumors about other people's characters (which is Lynn's favorite part because #cattiest). You also get to throw your characters under the bus routinely for plot development which is great. ;D

    Send the info below to Lynn (@Ophelia Dippet) by September 24th to apply!

    Code:
    Name:
    Main Account: (or account you want your WW permissions on if different)
    Full-time, part-time, or float?
    I am most interested in writing these types of articles:
    I want to be a Wench because...
    I am/am not comfortable graphics editing.

    A brief note that characters must be apped by tomorrow if you wish them to be a contender for Minister of Magic. This is to ensure the ‘one month of activity’ requirement, and fudges the numbers slightly to allow maximum participation ;)

    The Wenches received an incredible amount of qualified applications, which made this decision very difficult! Please join us in congratulating the newest members of our team, Emma (@Clarissa Cosgrove), Bree (@Annabelle Scrimgeour), and Soph (@Ellory Pendergast). Thank you to everyone who applied! Your support is what keeps WW going!

    Hey friends! Just a heads up that our next AC will take place on the 7nd, aka a week from today. Please remember to post your characters, get them on the CML, and fill out their mini-profiles!

    Additionally, the first draft of the 1887 voter list has been completed! If you're missing votes that you think you should have, it's because your character isn't on the CML ;) The following qualify for votes:
    • Males of any class who were born in Britain or Ireland, or moved there early enough to start Hogwarts, aged seventeen or older.
    • Upper class mothers of sons who meet that qualification but have no living father and are not yet seventeen.
    Excluded are anyone dead or presumed dead.
