Did You Know?
During the Victorian era, knitting became a staple of a well-bred woman. Queen Victoria is even reported to have been a fan of knitting herself. It was during this time that knitting wasn’t just restricted to plain yarn fabrics, but changed to involve bead and lace knitting. — Fallin

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, July 7th 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!

And the winners are...

Fallin (@Sisse Thompsett) has won June's Posting Wizard competition with a total of 54 posts! Kelly, Bree, Lynn, and Emma are up for July!

Today's the first drawing of our summer raffle! The following are taking home prizes today, and will be getting PMs with further details when I am a) not in bed and b) in my own home.

Last but not least, we have an IC Chess Tournament coming up! Get your characters signed up :)

So you've probably noticed our shiny new skin! Well despite my best efforts it still has some kinks that need ironing out as well as some new features coming soon. For all the information on our new skin as well as bug reports click here!

A couple of old friends have made a triumphant return...

If you check out the list of available skins you should see two not so new skins have appeared.
As voted by you: Field Guide to Sorcery and The Quidditch World Cup have been freshened up and are here to stay as legacy skins!

First and foremost, it's Charming Sunday, y'all! You have until 11:59pm Eastern time to turn your POSTS into PRIZES!

The August AC is one week from today. As per the usual form please ensure:
  • Your mini-profile is filled in
  • All of your characters have been listed in the Character Directory—check back on your entries to make sure they were processed properly! Anyone reactivated this month will need to be placed back on. 
  • Characters made before the last AC have posted at least once this month
  • This one's mostly for staff, but that your full profile has been filled in ;)
  • Your character's height is displayed in their mini-profile. I sent out a PM earlier this month to users I noticed with issues here! Remember that with the new skin comes a new height format, and this needs to be tended to before the AC!

For those looking to be prefects or head next year, time is swiftly running out to get in your application(s)! The general deadline is TOMORROW, though there will be wiggle room for postings that don't have applicants at closing.

Lastly, signups are open for July PW and the event thread for August has gone up!

Hello friends! Today is the day!  That's right: student staff for 1891/1892 has been announced!

First and least surprisingly, @George Waterford and @Elijah Urquart are taking over their respective quidditch teams!

Next, @Holly Scrimgeour (8.67) and @Venusia Crickerly (unanimous "yes") have overcome absolutely no competition to be named Slytherin prefect in their respective years xD

In the closest competition of the year, @Sisse Thompsett (9.31) has been named Gryffindor prefect for her year.

Last but not least, @George Waterford (8.25) and @Gretchen Lestrange (9.28) will be serving as Head Boy and Head Girl!

There are still lots of positions on the table for anyone interested, including new characters! We'll do ~summer procedure on apps until August 21th, after which we'll switch to the mid-year system :)

set by the long-lost bex
