      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

Oh no don't let that happen

7 posts in this topic

Despite Rhett being the mean old bat that he was, Selena kept the strange map her upperclassman sold to her their first week of school. She had spent a lot of time studying the map that she didn't need to look at it anymore, which was pretty useless since nothing was where it should be. It was just more fun to find new places in the castle by following the map. Especially since it made no sense when the two were compared. The girls bathroom on the second floor was most definitely not anywhere near the North Tower and this hall filled with armor was not the girls bathroom.

 

Still the shiny armored hallway was pretty cool, and Selena really had no idea where she was so she had accomplished her goal. Now if only she could figure her way back to places she recognized.

Though he spends most of his time in the chamber he did want to see more of the castle. Being a second year, he knew that he has not been to ever place. There were so many places he was sure the seventh years have not been to yet. Today he wanted to go to the Armor Gallery. He had heard that they moved, which he seen before but he still didn’t believe it.

 

As he was walking toward the armor gallery he walked inside and almost ran into someone. “I am sorry, I didn’t see you there. I was just going on adventures to places on the castle I have never been. I’m Ethan.” He says. Hoping he didn’t talk a whole lot. That happens sometimes.

This certainly was a strange place to meet someone. Selena couldn't believe he had almost run into her! She wasn't that short. Though she wouldn't mention the amount of times she herself had run into doorframes or tables because she wasn't paying as much attention as she should have been. As he spoke, the boy sparked her interest. "You like adventuring around the castle too?" She asked excitedly. The poor boy didn't know what he had just got himself into. What a shame. If he thought he spoke a lot, he wasn't going to be prepared for Lena.

 

"I actually came here adventuring too!," She added, showing off her faulty map. "I bought this map from one of the older kids. I don't think it's right. See, cause right here it says we're in the girls bathroom on the second floor. Are we even on the second floor? That's where I got led to last time I went following the map actually. One of my classmates followed me though and made me stop exploring saying I was going to die or something." She finished with a shrug. Her eyes widened when she realized she hadn't introduced herself yet. "Oh right! I'm Selena it's nice to meet you Ethan."

There seemed to be a pattern into meeting people for Ethan in the dueling chamber or almost running into them. It was just something that had almost always happened. Meeting in the chamber was a lot easier and might hurt depending on the kind of spells that someone might send to someone. Though this time, it was that he was almost an into. “I love going on adventures in the castle, it is so huge you never know where you will end up.” Though he has not run into anything bad yet, or taken a wrong turn somewhere else.

 

He looked at the map, that the girl had. She also asked if they were on the second floor. They were not on the second floor at all. “This is the third floor.” He said, knowing about the bathroom on the second floor. It was one that was haunted, or otherwise a ghost lived in the bath room. “You are not going to die if you explore, there is nothing here that will kill us.” At least he didn’t think that there was, he was not super sure at all. “That is a nice name, Selena.” He said with a smile.

"I knew it!" Selena exclaimed excitedly. Both knowing that she wouldn't die and wasn't on the second floor. Perhaps she should make her own map. At least after she started figuring out where she was without having to ask. She liked this boy. He confirmed her thoughts and even liked her name. What a charmer. "I'm glad nothing can kill us. I don't think I'd like to join Myrtle in her bathroom forever. Can she go to other places in the castle or is she stuck there? Because I feel like she's always there but there's so many ghosts who wander around the castle and I don't think they even died here. Have you run into many ghosts? My friends and I keep seeing this Casper guy all over the place. His great great great something or other is my classmate though." She curled the map back up and stuck it into her robes. There was no point in keeping it out if there was someone else around who could actually tell her how to get back to wherever she needed to go eventually.

 

" Ethan is a pretty alright name too."

Wow this girl could talk, he remembered when he was a first year. Though that was only a year ago, he didn’t talk that much to people that he didn’t know. Ethan had gotten a lot better, since he was learning that he made friends, and people liked him for who he was. It was just not something he was used to at all. “I believe she can go where she wants, but that she stays there. I don’t know why she would want to stay in the bathroom. I should see if I can read about her history and ask her why she is there.” He said taking a breath. He didn’t know how that girl was able to speak so fast and all at once.

 

“I see them from time to time, but other than that not too much.” They also could be floating by him, and he wouldn’t pay attention. He always had a book that he was reading. No matter what he was doing at all. “Oh, that is crazy. I don’t believe that anyone in my family has ever been here. I am sure of it since I am muggle born.” He said with a laugh. “Why thank you.” He said back towards the girl, though she said his name was just alright. He didn’t care.

Making friends was never a big problem for Selena, or at least it wasn't in her head. She didn't exactly go out and try to make friends with everyone either. People seemed to already know each other from the prehogwarts school, but Selena herself could barely remember the school. It was fascinating listening to this older student. He actually seemed to have ideas and stuff. Wow were all older kids this smart? No. It was so nice to actually have a conversation with someone who knew what he was talking about.

 

"There's a bunch of muggle born in my class too!" Selena said excitedly, as if the older kid would actually care about that. "I'm learning neat stuff from them too. Like things about tell-a-phones and tell-a-visions. Mummy and Daddy are both magic so I don't know much about muggle stuff. My grandpa is actually a muggle but I don't get to see him very often."
