These forums will stay open throughout the school year instead of closing when school is in session, but there are a few rules that you need to follow.
1. All student roleplays in these forums must take place during winter holidays, summer holidays, or Hogsmeade Weekends (Hogsmeade only). Students are not allowed to roleplay that they snuck out during school. (This rule does not apply to unsorted members).
2. These forums are for shopping or window-shopping roleplays only. All other home or vacation roleplays must take place in the Homes and Holidays forum when it is open, even if your character lives in Hogsmeade or London.
