|We are hiring shopkeepers! Want to control all the goodies on the site? Fabulous, step right up and apply.
Feel free to apply no matter what year you are, but please take into account that it's unlikely we'll be hiring first years. We need staying power for these positions so that we don't have to keep posting this silly application thread.
Feel free to PM your applications to Snape or Limebert. Thank you!
Application for Shopkeepers:

The name(s) of your VH Character(s):
How long have you been on VH?
An MSN or AIM address we could reach you on:
How often are you online, and for how long?
How many hours each week are you willing to put into a shop?
How old are you?
What have you done for Virtual Hogwarts in the past?
What shop would you like to run, and why? (Please list all you'd like to be considered for if you'd like to be considered for more than one shop)
Are there any shops you specifically do NOT want to apply for? (Don't worry we're not offended, please be HONEST)
Part II: Your Character
Briefly describe your character?
What interaction does your character bring to you shop of choice? (Why is it going to be AWESOME for kids to interact with you?)
Is there anything else you'd like to say to help convince us you're the right person for the job?

The Daily Prophet Needs YOU!

to write for the Daily Prophet? If so, we’re looking for a sports correspondent and some general columnists. If this is something you’d like to do, please fill out the form and also PM it to Barnabus Cuffe
here on VH. Currently we’re not certain of how many people we will be hiring but be sure to get your applications in ASAP!

While it's true that as Mods, we can not police every aspect of the internet, that doesn't mean that what you do outside of the boards (VH and VHOT) does not affect you here. We are the people who make the final decision on every Professor, Shopkeeper, Head of House, Head Kid, CCE Powers, etc. We also have the right to veto any Prefect, Death Eater, or Order of the Phoenix/Auror applicants. Pretty much, if we don't think someone should get a job on VH, they won't.
What does that mean for you? It means that if your name comes up for something, and our impression of you is unfavorable because of the way you treat people on AND off VH and VHOT, we are going to bump your name down the list. And in many cases, bump your name right off the list. Reputation is one of the most important factors in our decisions. Why would we want to give someone any sort of privilege or power on our sites if they have a bad reputation? This goes both ways, too. If you have gone out of your way to ruin another VHer's reputation, we know about that, as well. That means not only have you hurt someone else, but you have hurt yourself.
Reputation is very, very important. It is also one of the hardest things to repair once it has been ruined.
Don't think that because you reserve your less desirable actions for places like MSN, Year Sites, Quidditch Boards, Journals, etc., that it doesn't affect your standing on VH. Just because we won't ban you for being a jerk, doesn't mean we don't remember it. It also doesn't mean we don't hear about it. We do. More than you think.
Treat each other with respect, even if you don't like each other, and VH will continue to be a place that is enjoyable for everyone. Do otherwise, and your own enjoyment of the site might not be as certain.
p.s. If you would like to discuss this with myself or any of the mods (if you don't feel comfortable talking to me) then please, drop me a PM or find me on one of my MSNs. I'm always happy to chat with you!

| Let's Talk About Sex, Baby!

|Got your attention? Good! This is a serious subject, and I want your complete attention!
VH is not only a role-play site, but it is also a social site. We talk to each other on different messenger systems, we meet on FaceBook, some of our members share phone numbers and even meet in real life.
Almost all of these contacts are good and rewarding and we make life-long friends. Unfortunately, not all of these contacts work out, and some people have been victimized.
We strive to keep everything on VH safe for everyone who uses the site. We monitor role-plays (with the help of our staff, prefects, and members) to make sure the written words stay within the bounds of PG rating. There are places we cannot monitor, though. One place is PMs; the other is off-site. Both of these places are prime places for the rude, the gross, and the predator to try to get to you.
We want to let you know that we have ZERO tolerance for any sort of sexual innuendo, gross sex jokes, or stalking. This means we will BAN anyone who is proved to be a predator or stalker of any sort. We can, and will, place members on Mod Watch if they post questionable role-plays (which means every post they make must be cleared by a moderator before it appears on the boards).
-----If you think you have been a victim of an inappropriate PM or other contact, do not delete it, and contact a Mod right away.
-----If you have been harassed or victimized off-VH or VHOT (like on MSN or AIM), please let a mod know. We may not be able to do anything (other than to recommend that you block the person and make sure you protect your privacy, and perhaps tell your parents), but if we have proof of wrong doing, we may decide we no longer want that person on VH either.
-----If you make a character with a questionable name, the Mods WILL change it without your permission. You will receive an e-mail about the change, and will have the opportunity to request a name change.
-----If you use a LAL or banner which is inappropriate, the Mods WILL remove it. (Use some sense here. A suggestive LAL is as inappropriate in a school staff member as it in a school student! Plus, the more 'sexy' your LAL is, the more you may attract predators....)
-----Remember your VH age – IF THE MODS DECIDE YOUR RP IS NOT AGE APPROPRIATE, THEY MAY EDIT IT! This is OUR site, and the content must conform to our rules.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We want to bring up another couple of topics as serious as the above in other ways. We strive to be sensitive to people who are using VH – all of the long-time members are very aware of restrictions in portraying your character as abused or handicapped or seriously ill. We have forgotten some very important people on VH, and this is as good of place as any to bring it up.
There's a group of members who are special to the Mods, and those are our gay members. A trend on VH is for members to role-play as gay or lesbian, even when they themselves are not. If you write as a gay student, please keep in mind you are being read by those who are actually gay and be sensitive in your portrayal. Sex is no more a focus of their lives than it is a non-gay person; it's just a difference of attraction. Being gay is no more important than being straight; it's just another way of life. It's tempting to make it the focal point of your character; try to make MAGIC your focal point instead! Don't be afraid to ask for advice!
Also, many members decide at one point or other to write as a member of the opposite sex from them. Most of us who do this base our characters on people we know, or at least think we know. We ask that you stay sensitive to those of the opposite sex, too!
(PM a mod if you're having trouble RPing a character like either of these (or others) before you decide to drop the character; we may be able to give you a few tips to save you!)
The message I really want you to get is this: Be safe; don't take crap from anyone; and remember:
Virtual Hogwarts is all about being magical, not just being.
