      How to get sorted   05/13/2017

      To find the Sorting Form, click on the "Sort Me!" tab at the top of the page.    Before you go to fill out the form, make sure that you have a username that follows our rules. If you don't, your form will be rejected. You can change your name once yourself, by going to Account Settings -> Display Name. If you've already used your one change, you can request a name change in this topic. Be sure to read the first post in the topic carefully so we can get you updated without any back and forth.   Don't rush to answer the form! There's no prize for sending it in first. Please take your time and fill out the form thoughtfully, so the hat will have the information it needs to put your character in the right house.     Calendar: Sorting Form appears: Saturday, May 13th Sorting Form closes: Friday, June 9th (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, June 11th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, June 11th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, June 12th   (For reference: Central Time Zone includes Chicago, Illinois)   How to get sorted:   1. Register with a name that follows our rules. The registration agreement explains the rules about names. You can also find them in the Rules.   2. Remember you may only send in one form total for this school year. If you send forms in from multiple accounts, we will not sort ANY of them. Then we have to feel bad about not sorting you. Don't make us feel bad, please.   3. Click on the Sort Me tab and fill out the sorting form as thoroughly as possible. The better we understand your character, the more likely we can put you in the right house. See "How to use the form" below if you're confused. For some in depth information on each house, please check out this topic on sorting. (Note: After you fill out the form, a copy will be PMed to you. Please save that because we delete them from our system after sorting.)   4. Wait for a PM from the Sorting Hat. Be patient, it could take a few days. If you don't receive a PM from the Sorting Hat within 4 or 5 days, contact one of the moderators.   5. If your form is: Accepted: Congratulations! You should now go post in the Sorting Ceremony topic in the New Member resources forum. This is very important. This post is where you'll go to find out what the Sorting Hat had to say about you. Don't skip this step! Rejected: Don't worry, you can still be sorted. Be sure to read the reasons for the rejection carefully, then edit your form (just click on the Get Sorted! link again) to fix the problem. Once you've done that, you can send the form in again. 6. That's it! Once you've gotten your acceptance letter AND posted in the Sorting Ceremony, you're all set. You'll find out where the Sorting Hat put you on Sorting day when you can check the Great Hall for the edited Sorting Ceremony.   How to use the form: The form is pretty straightforward and user friendly. Here are a couple tips: You don't need to fill the whole thing in at one sitting. You can finish one page at a time and save it. Then finish the rest later. Don't use your browser's Back or Forward buttons. Use the buttons in the form to Navigate.  If you don't fill out all the questions on a page, you can't save or move on. If you don't meet the word number requirements in the In Depth section, you can't submit the form. Use the "Check Word Count" buttons to see how many words you've used. If you fill in the wrong answers on the quiz page, you won't be able to submit the form. After you've submitted the form, you can't access it anymore. But if your form is rejected, you'll be able to see it again with your old answers still filled in. Still have questions? Ask here.    Note: Section I: Short Answer Please include a brief explanation with each answer. I'd like to remind you all to include an explanation with all the short answer questions. The answers to those questions aren't very useful for sorting unless you explain them.   Otherwise, we don't have enough information to sort you with. (Translation: we'll have to reject it.)     Many thanks as always to Arianna Wright for her hard work revising and updating the form and to Faraz Memon for initially coding it many years ago. <3

Sign-ups to be Tutored

So. You're dumb and need a tutor. Cool. I can help you with that because I am a good person.

First thing you must do before getting a tutor is read THIS THREAD. Everything on it. I know you're not the swiftest broom, but you can do it. I have faith.

 

Note: LAST YEAR'S THREADS ARE NO LONGER 'VALID'. That does not mean that you can't finish them. Please finish them. But those tutors are no longer your tutors. You must sign up again.

Secondly, you must fill out the form below. Once you fill it out then you wait. I will PM you once I've found you an appropriate tutor. DO NOT PM me saying that you're still waiting. Once someone is available to be your tutor then you will get one. I'm keeping track of everything. I promise.

[b]I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage:[/b] yes/no/not applicable
[b]On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects:[/b] (please scale each subject individually, 1 being a 'I'm only kinda dumb' and 5 being a 'I'm so dumb I can't even spell the subject name'.)

Log-in name: Kaelyn Paddock
Year: Fourth
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Term 1: HoM, Term 2: Astronomy and Ancient Runes (Note: I'm listing all the subjects that Kaelyn would probably need tutoring in, but since I don't want this to be a heavy RP/time commitment, I would prefer to either have just one tutor helping her in multiple subjects, or one tutor helping her in one subject.)

 

I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: ICly Kae wouldn't think of signing up for this, but since she's taking her OWLs next year it would make sense if she received some I suppose.
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: (please scale each subject individually, 1 being a 'I'm only kinda dumb' and 5 being a 'I'm so dumb I can't even spell the subject name'.)

History of Magic: 2

Astronomy: 3

Ancient Runes: 4
I prefer to work with: One person, but I'm not opposed to a small group... I just figure one person will keep things more simple in terms of setting up and finishings up threads
Extra info: Kaelyn paid Desmond to do all her written homework last term, and since she can't rely on him to do that for her this year, she's signing up for tutoring in hopes that it will be like receiving free homework "help" and do a lot of the heavy lifting for her. (i.e. she's hoping she might end up with someone who can just summarize the textbook for her verbally so she won't have to read it, or someone who will offer to write an essay or two for her). Whether you choose to give her someone like that is up to you, doesn't matter to me either way, that's just going to be her IC perspective walking into her first session.

Log-in name: Juan Garcia
Year: First
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Potions, Astronomy
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: No
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: Potions-5, Astronomy-3
I prefer to work with: No preference
Extra info: Juan will probably try to break rules. He pays semi-attention in class, but he's easily distracted and swears that some of the stuff they're learning doesn't make sense. Potions, he's really a lost cause. All the names go right over his head and he can't understand. Pls help.

Log-in name: Elaine Stewart
Year: Fourth
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): DADA, Charms
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: yes/no/not applicable
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects:

DADA: 2

Charms : 1
I prefer to work with: One person
Extra info: Elaine's not really that bad at either DADA or Charms, but the subjects with a lot of wand-waving involved don't come naturally to her like Herbology and Runes do. Plus, she is an extreme overachiever which is basically the reason why she is here. To get better at the subjects she is the weakest in especially since there is only a couple of years left until OWLs.

Log-in name: Zara Anguariz
Year: Third
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Astronomy
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: No
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: Astronomy-3
I prefer to work with: No preference
Extra info: Zara doesn't like Astronomy and feels like it is a worthless subject. She will probably try to convince you that it shouldn't be part of the Hogwarts curriculum.

Log-in name: Margaret Schoenberger
Year: First
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Astronomy
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: No
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: 2
I prefer to work with: One person
Extra info: Margaret's a smart girl and has been reading her Astronomy books, but she has a difficult time staying up until midnight for class that she feels she's not learning as much as she could be. She should be easy to tutor. I just want to roleplay with an older student. <3

Log-in name: Daria Selby
Year: Second
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Charms, DADA, Potions
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: Not applicable
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects:
Charms - 3
DADA - 4
Potions - 2
I prefer to work with: One person, please.
Extra info: It took Daria all of last year to come to terms with her magical abilities. Now she needs help catching up in the subjects that require the most wandwork.

Log-in name: Casper Burridge
Year: First
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Is everything an option? Term one: Potions; Term two: Transfiguration and Charms
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: not applicable
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects:

  • Potions: 2-3
  • Transfiguration: 5
  • Charms: 5

I prefer to work with: one person is my preference but I am open to anything if that's easier!
Extra info: Casper is really dumb. He's still trying to figure out if he's holding his wand the right way. He knows probably a bit more potions wise because that doesn't tend to require magic and just following instructions which he can do. For transfiguration and charms that requires like... actually extra help because of what was said prior. He isn't too bright when it comes to spell names and how to wave his wand properly according to the spell.

Log-in name: Alaina Matthews

Year: Third

I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Transfiguration

I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: n/a

On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: Transfiguration - 2

I prefer to work with: one person (or possibly a small group that is like minded)

Extra info: It's not that Alaina doesn't know the spells or what to do. The subject violates her morals. As a Ravenclaw, she would like to do well, but every time an animal is involved (animate to inanimate, in particular), she gets too emotional. While she could eventually get to the point where she understands it's for education, Knagg's personality spooks her too much to reach that point. Alaina needs a tutor that's compassionate and understanding to help her get there.

Log-in name: Terrance Craft
Year: First
I need a tutor in the following subject(s): Potions & Herbology
I need OWL or NEWT specific tutelage: Not applicable
On a scale of 1-5, I am this dumb in my subjects: Potions - 3; Herbology - 4
I prefer to work with: I'm flexible, feel free to throw me wherever it's easier.
Extra info: When it comes to brewing potions, Terrance has a knack for making things explode. He's just got dumb luck. Then, with Herbology there's a good chance Terrance will make something die than spring to life.
