Activity Check
The announcement's a little belated, but...

Another activity check come and gone! The list of inactive accounts has been compiled and deactivations and list maintenance are underway :) If you lost a character you'd like back, you may post in Maintenance starting Wednesday, October 4th. If you have no currently active characters you can post in maintenance immediately!

(If you lost a character before the AC, you can post there whenever you'd like!)

Candidates for the Ballot

Our candidates in no particular order for the ballot: Timoleon Maxime Lionel Lupin Sweetie Whitledge Ozymandias Dempsey Aldous Crouch Jude Wright.

As a reminder: all announced candidates are IC on the ballot! The reduction to 6 is to reduce administrative overload on our staff and members for voting after feedback we've received in previous elections. (So if anyone REALLY wants to vote for Emerett Picardy, you can still post that they are in the voting thread.)

Re: voting processes and lists, please give me two days and they will be up!

This is less of a "Bee Desperately Needs Buddies" and more of a "Hey! Buddy apps are always open, join me!" I like OPTIONS!

Especially if you have characters that are;
-- student characters (2nd-5th-ish years especially!)
-- lower reputations
-- non-human characters
-- characters over 35
-- non-Hogsmeade residents

Not saying that you should shy away if you don't have any of those things, but they would be extra helpful!

PM this form to Daffy's account please!

[b]Playable Usergroups and Social Classes:[/b] (Which usergroups and social classes do you currently have)
[b]# of Requested Buddies:[/b] (How man buddies can you handle at one time? It is recommended that volunteers start off with one or two at a time and go from there due to the activity requirements.)

Current Buddies please check in the forum for an update!!

a handful of election reminders

Our In-Character and OOC ballots are due by 11:59 PM CST on 10/19. If you have votes you haven't cast yet, your main or character accounts were just tagged there.

Additionally, a reminder that it's not over until the Daily Prophet article drops — there will be behind-the-scenes vote verification & the addition of our realism and IC participation votes, which means the Ministerial reveal will drop before I go to bed on 10/19. If you nudge me while I am doing these processes I will be very sad, please let them happen without nudging.

Thanks, pals!

Ch-ch-changes! After meaning to for eons, we have refreshed our reputation system—changes aren't nearly big enough to be an 'overhaul', don't worry! This DOES mean a bit of tedium on your part, I'm afraid, though: all characters need to be updated or confirm they are good to go where they're at! This needs to be done no later than Saturday, December 3rd to remain active following the December AC.

(This is also a great opportunity to update your character rep logs :P)

Note: We know the page on reputation (still) isn't optimized for dark skins! Content changes are pretty easy, but coding changes require more coordination—it is very much on our list!

And just a hint at what's to come in the next couple weeks: a doc on mourning and the next chapter in our SWP...

Well, we almost made it a month without tragedy.

On 31st October during the Halloween Feast, Professor Thomas Pembroke died in a Stair Accident. It was kept quiet from the students, though those in Gryffindor and Ravenclaw might have lamented being forced to take the long way back to the common room after festivities (how odd!). Students will not be allowed to wander the school after this transpires; they'll be kept in the Great Hall until the conclusion of the Feast and then moved back to their house spaces.

Classes are cancelled November 1st and students confined to their common rooms. "Picnic style" meals will be provided. House matrons will give the Official Story at lunch time that day—Professor Pembroke had a tragic fall down the stairs and lost his life as a result. Yes, the school is completely safe. We should all be mindful of where we put our feet. Classes will resume November 2nd, with the thoroughly unqualified Reuben Crouch 'subbing' Muggle Studies until the school finds a permanent replacement!

AC Approaches
The next Activity Check will be in five days on Sunday 5th November! Please ensure that:

  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • Profile has been filled in if not done during acceptance (Did you get a "DIY" PM? You'll need to do this!)
  • Your character's height is displayed in their mini-profile—if you reactivate an account, this may need doing!
