New students: when you go to fill out the Sorting Form, we recommend you switch to another theme. Right now the form is not very easy to read on Castle theme. You can find the theme switcher at the bottom left corner of every page.

      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

The Sorting Ceremony

Uniform robes were not warm enough for a requisite autumn boat ride on the lake. The kids who fell in would probably die of cold if a competent healer didn't see to them. She may just die cold and hungry.  Walking through the first set of massive double doors and then shortly after the second set to enter the great hall, Iggy tripped and stopped abruptly. "I thought this was a sorting FEAST!? Where is all the bloody food?"


This had better not be a metaphorical feast that required fasting or something. Iggy was deeply opposed to starving oneself for any reason. Unless being forced to eat fast food, but that hardly seemed like that would be an issue all the way out here. 


The eleven year old elbowed her way through the crowd of her peers, making her way to the front for a prized view of the event. When the first kid came up and was sorted to the overreacting cheer of the whole hall, Iggy fished a notepad from her pocket and started taking notes on who ended up where. Might as well have a list ready of potential dorm mates, right? Maybe she would get one good at history to swap notes with. She hated history. 


She he managed to fill a page or two, depending how you count these things, of her notebook with names and houses and sorting hat phrases and facial expressions before she was called up to the stool.




Her notebook snapped shut and she tucked the invincible ink pen behind her ear, her stride to the front of the crowd rather brisk and businesslike. The moment the hat was on her head the questions began... "Can you not eat? Are we all suffering hunger pangs for your sake? I imagine you have some sort of sensory input... can you not process imagery? Food is beautiful."


ah, but she was forgetting why she was up there, "I have taken notes, some of your decisions seem to be questionable at best, else some kids are super good at faking personalities. Besides, it appears you've spread out the rotten and now I'm stuck with bad or good no matter where I go!
There really ought to be a carotene house, don't you think?"

Victoria did not see what the big deal about Hogwarts castle was.  Yes, it was big, but many buildings in Scotland, and indeed, all throughout the British Isles were big.  Yes, it was a castle, but there were lots of castles about.  Yes, it was riddled with enchantment, but it was not as though Victoria had never seen an enchantment before in her life. 


She was by no means completely unimpressed.  She had, after all, spent most of her life waiting for this moment.  But now that it was here, Victoria felt that it didn't quite live up to her expectations, and that was irritating.
