      How to get sorted   10/05/2017

      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: Thursday, October 5th Sorting Form closes: Friday, November 3rd (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, November 5th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, November 5th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, November 6th   (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

Stealing Doesn't Seem to Make Everything Better

7 posts in this topic

So Ryan might have found himself in a particularly bad predicament. In his haste to facilitate a transfer into Slytherin, he had grabbed a bunch of students' wands. Whose wands were they? He had no idea. But now that he had packed the wands into his satchel, he had to map out an escape route. Which was the closest route to London? From the second floor corridor?

 

*if you want to say that Ryan has your wand feel free*

Jasper was furious. He had woken up that morning, and after going through the effort to wake up and get ready for his classes, his wand was gone! He saw that a few other students in the common room seemed to be missing their wands as well, so Jasper set out to try and find the student responsible.

 

He walked quickly down the hallway, making an extremely loud fuss. He shouted various profanities and strange words as he muttered about his wand being gone.

 

"I bloody swear, when I find the bloke that took my wand, he'd wish he had taken someone elses, because their wand is going to end up getting shoved down their throat!"

Oh boy this was definitely ill-advised, Ryan thought to himself as he tried to look for an escape route. He began tapping along the wall - where was a magic portal when you needed one? He thought this was supposed to be a magic school.

 

He heard a Gryffindor yelling about someone who stole a wand which made Ryan immediately dive around the corner.

Jasper just kept walking at a fast pace.

 

That wand was one of the nicest things he's ever owned.

 

Jasper walked past the boy, not noticing him, as the fit of rage blinded him as he kept walking down the hallway.

Just as Morty was about to turn the corner a boy dove around the corner like something was after him. Morty slid to a stop and peeked around the corner. Another boy was muttering about someone stealing his wand but he was heading the other way.

 

"Did you really steal a wand. " Morty asked the other boy. "If I were you I would get rid of it. Stuff it behind a tapestry or something. Nobody will ever know you took it. " Morty advised.

Fortunately, it seemed as though the Gryffindor hadn't noticed him. However, a Hufflepuff had. Putting aside his disdain for Hufflepuffs for the moment, Ryan jumped to his feet. "Unfortunately, it's not just one," he said after a moment's pause. He then cracked open his satchel to reveal a number of wands.

 

Getting rid of them was a good idea. "Maybe the squid would like to eat them." He didn't know what weird food squids liked, after all. Maybe they liked twigs?

Morty's eyes bugged out when the Gryffindor opened his satchel. Morty couldn't believe the boy had swiped that many wands. Witches and wizards were touchy about their wands. They would let you hold their pet before they would let you hold their wand. Morty was nervous just being next to the wands.

 

"I wouldn't even keep them that long. " Morty told Ryan. "You've got to get rid of those. I would just start walking and start tossing them aside."
