In light of some frickin' weird apps we've gotten lately, I feel the need to mention a couple of things.

1. Make sure you get all the tags when you copy the application. If you dont, I have to go in an correct them, and that makes me an unhappy admin.

2. I think I need to put in the standard one-word house descriptions. Some of you are writing apps that are not at all suited to the house you'd like to be in, and you're probably going to end up sorted into the house we think you belong in, instead.
- Gryffindor: courageous
- Hufflepuff: loyal
- Ravenclaw: intelligent
- Slytherin: cunning

3. I'm serious about the writing at least at an 8th grade level thing. Really serious. If the admins can't figure out what you're saying, no sorting for you.

---------------------

**Spelling and grammar are important. I want to know that my players are educated enough to participate in intellectually stimulating RP.**

Title your post with your character name.

Copy the template from the post below into your post. Make sure you've got the whole thing, or the list tags won't work.

Next, answer the questions about your character, in detail. By "detail", I mean that there should be at least one, if not three, complete sentences in response to any question after the first three. Do not begin your answers on the same line as the question.

For question 4, you will want to go to Alivan's and choose a wand.

At the bottom of the submit form is a poll option. Create a poll like the one attached to this post:

Question: Please sort me into a house!

Options:
Gryffindor
Slytherin
Ravenclaw
Hufflepuff

Sorting will happen when these conditions are met:
  • Your writing is at least at an 8th grade level.
  • You have actually answered all the questions.
  • You have recieved ten votes. (or it's flamingly obvious to an admin that one house is going to win within a those ten votes -- say six or more votes in one house)
  • Houses are not tied for first place.
  • An admin is actually online.

The site's been dead for about a year and a half, now, at the very least. The last announcement was about that far back. Please do not register any more characters, because there's no one here to approve them. The site persists for archival purposes only.

Bad Admin!

Hey everyone. This is the first time I've been able to get on a computer for more than 3 minutes in the past month or so. I'm at school right now, and I don't have a computer at home.

The hard drive on my computer if fried and my parents wont let me use their computer (cause they suck!) I apologize to anyone who may have needed me, and should be getting my hard drive fixed within the next month.
