    NaNo is over! Glory glory hallelujah! Congrats to Lynn @Ophelia Dippet, Lauren @Helena MacMillan, Fallin @Sisse Thompsett and MJ @Elias Grimstone for completing the arduous task! And me I guess. Please post in my graphics shop at any time to claim your prize (hopefully between now and next NaNo) regardless of it is full/closed! Well done to everybody who participated, it's not an easy task!

    Olive would like to apologize for the belated release of the winter skins! Winter IS coming, and it's BEAUTIFUL!

    Oh, and the AC is tomorrow, I suppose that's important!

    It may be a day late but your new skins have finally arrived! If you have a problem with the abundance of white/blue then you only have yourself to blame for not submitting something in a different color ;)

    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.

    Anywhozle, allow me to introduce the last Winter skins of Charming 1.0:




    Things I Almost Remember was the result of MJ's (@Elias Grimstone) wizardry, Snow White is a Bee (@Elsie Beauregard) production, Baby, It's Cold Outside spawned from the fingertips of Rune (@Violet Wiltingham), and Hoot Hoot, Motherflutter is an owl-riginal Lynn creation! As always, thanks to Queen of the Skin, Té (@Barnabas Skeeter) whose original layout has been redressed many times now but always remains chiefly her design.

    Also, returning for a second season like an unsuccessful debutante is Seasons Tweetings!

    The Activity Check is underway and your posts now count for December! Reactivations of characters deactivated in this AC may be started in maintenance on December 6th at 9:30 A.M. EST. If all of your accounts are inactive, you may immediately post to reactivate one! As per the usual, it may take us a day or two to get to any new applications.

    The next AC will take place on January 6th.

    Who doesn’t love a new board preview?

    Today, a glimpse at our new reputation system! Instead of being a 5-point system, we’re upgrading to a 10-point system with ‘ceilings’ for certain behaviours. All characters start at a 10 unless their life status/experiences give them a lower maximum. From there, we dock points!

    GOOD REPUTATIONS:
    Ten:

    Nine:
    — Max rep for men known to have fathered a bastard
    — Maximum rep for those that actively avoid society

    Eight:
    — Maximum Rep for a “Confirmed Bachelor”
    — Maximum rep for those who have been disowned

    Seven:
    — Maximum Rep for Known Halfbreed/Quarterbreed, Bastard
    — Minimum Rep for Pendergast Rose
    — Maximum Rep for a Divorced Woman
    — Maximum Rep for Former Criminal
    — Max rep for men who take in their bastard as their child

    MIDDLING REPUTATIONS:
    Six:
    — Maximum Rep for Known Veela
    — Maximum rep for those who have dropped a class in disgrace

    Five:
    — Maximum Rep for Known Werewolf, Vampire, Hag
    — Minimum Rep for Hogwarts Staff

    Four:
    — Minimum Rep for Ministry, Hospital, Museum, and Library
    —Minimum Rep for Hogwarts Student
    — Maximum Rep for Reformed Prostitutes
    — Max rep for women known to have mothered a bastard

    BAD REPUTATIONS:
    Three: Highest Discretionary Firing Threshold

    Two:
