Did you know?

First names were most often used by childhood or school friends. If the friendship was made after school age, first names would only really be used by women. Men were far more likely to refer to their friends by their surnames, a mark of familiarity. — Documentation

WANTED:

Emilia Wright for Jude Wright. Casually alienating offspring since 18882.
Separating was also not a great idea, though they weren't doing great at staying together anyway. If she were to volunteer to be the human sacrifice.. well... Hogsmeade had plenty of debutantes anyway...

We've recovered our database as of the day Sunwolves went down, so you can recover all your content here! I was asked to let you all know that you might struggle to log in while cookies sort themselves out—this is nothing we can fix, so please don't ask us to! Try incognito or give it a few days, and remember you can still get everything that's guest viewable ;)

In case you missed it, we are now back open to the public! Please remember that the staff team will always prioritise the apps of someone who has no or one character over the apps of someone who has multiple already, and be patient with that in mind! Play nicely with all our new friends, and if you want to be EXTRA helpful, contact Bee (Elsie Beauregard) to join our Buddy team!

Lastly, keep your eyes peeled for an April Writing Challenge to be posted today! or possibly tomorrow >.>

April Fools has come to an end—we hope you all enjoyed your carefully cultivated AF avatars and signatures ;) For those of you who wish to revert them back to their unimproved state, we've preserved the original URLs so that nothing's been lost!

Hello friends! So we super appreciate all the enthusiasm in new posts, plots, and characters. That said, due to my absence and Olive doing coding, Kayte is the only person who can process apps this week. If you've been apping a lot of characters recently, please be kind and consider slowing down and taking a few days in between apps.

Thanks for understanding!

Hello friends!

We have a few events going on this month that you (and/or your characters) might be interested in:

Also, everyone should bully Olive to get her to set up a movie night so we can get to know some of our new members better ;)

Lastly, some shameless self-promotion: the DP wants your classified ads by Tuesday [Image: 2j1mp05.gif]

Beginning in May, there will be a modest tweak to the way our IC events are run! In addition to the monthly Member-Run Events threads, we will also be making use of MyBB’s inbuilt calendar system to list…

  • Member- and Staff-Organized Events
  • Full Moons
  • Hogwarts Week-Ends
  • Pro Quidditch Matches
  • Start and End of Term @ Hogwarts and PSYR
  • Recurring events such as apparition lessons, monthly shindigs, etc.
Only IC events will be listed. Things such as Camp Charming and 12 Days will be maintained in threads, as is traditional. How can you view the calendar events?


Click on the “Calendar” button on every page.


You will see the calendar for the current month. You can click on an event (blue) to view its details, or on the top navigation (green) to move from month to month. You can also view a week at a time (red).


Once in the event view, the regular event details will be visible. For now, only staff members and sweeps are able to add events to the calendar—members will continue to post in the monthly events thread and it will be ported over for you. This also means that the monthly events thread still exists for those who prefer to use it!

The form for listing one-shot events has been updated to reflect any necessary changes. Please contact Kayte (Aldous Crouch) to discuss the adding of recurring events.

What does that mean for you? First and foremost, we have an Activity Check coming up on Saturday, May 5th. To ensure you survive, please make sure that...
  • Your mini-profile is filled in with height properly formatted
  • All of your characters have been listed in the Character Directory
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • This one's more for staff, but that your full profile has been filled in ;)
If all of the above are squared away, there should be no reason for you to fall inactive in the upcoming check!  To our new members: the AC requires no work on your part. The staff team simply makes sure the above is seen to!

We are now accepting events for May and, as previously discussed, are porting them over to the board calendar. We already have a bucket full of events geared up, so May should be a good month for characters of any class!

Casual reminder that Te wants your banners.

Finally, posting wizard signups for May are open! The competition runs from AC day to AC day, so you have until May 4th to sign up.

Though George is publicly presented as male and should be addressed as He/Him/His, privately she considers herself as female and will use She/Her/Hers pronouns.
