      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
Aias Midnight won't believe what happens next.

3 posts in this topic

Aias and his best friend had been feuding all year. About half way through the year, Aias had stopped stealing Al's stuff. And instead started shoving notes everywhere. Given the fact that the young Gryffindor didn't care about learning, he was fine writing notes to Al in class when he was supposed to actually be doing other things. Who cared about notes? He was trying to figure out other things. 


This year had been a big year for him. Between the drama between he and his best friend, his girlfriend actually refused to talk to him. She'd said that she'd only date a Quidditch player, which was why he stayed on the team. But then she hadn't been to any game or talk to him. Instead he'd been completely alone. So next year he had no reason to play the sport again.


But the truth was bigger then that. Gathering up his supplies, he found his former best friend on the train getting ready to go home and Aias did the only thing he could think to do. He plopped down on top of Al. It was just like the old times. Given that Aias refused to play anything on the Quidditch team other then beater, he had more arm muscles then he knew what to do with and he was going to refuse to let Al up until they talked. "You've been avoiding me." Stated the world's biggest hypocrite. He'd spent ages ignoring Al and now he was offended that Al was ignoring him back.


"And if you keep this up, I'm going to quit Quidditch and then I'll go live in someone else's dorm and you'll never see me again."

This yeah had in several way been both a disaster and a wonderful success. Al's grades had been moderate and he had led his quidditch team had won the cup. But for all the good things that had happened, he felt like it didn't matter. His two best friends had basically ignored him at the beginning of the year. Then the missing items began. At first, Al thought he had just been misplacing things. Then he had caught Aias actually stealing them. That had been the last straw for him.


Aias had been essentially cut off from Al's radar. Outside of Quidditch practice, Al hardly spoke to the boy. But then the notes started. Al refused to read any of them, but Aias was nothing if not persistant. In fact, Aias had put them in the strangest of places including his toothbrush case, a pair of his boxers and also one time in his morning omelet. Al was not sure how that one had gotten there. To be frank he was tired of them and so he was glad the school year was done. That meant the notes would be too.


The train was always a relaxing time for Al and this year was going to be no exception. Olwen was going to meet him later, but she had some other things to do before then. The upside of having a "larger" girlfriend was that he could easily keep the compartment to himself. Well that was until Aias showed up and he was an unmoveable object at times. Like right now.


"Oh speaking to me again are you? Also I haven't been avoiding you just ignoring. There is a difference. And I wasn't the first person to do that." Al gave Aias a pointed look. If he wanted to real talk Al could real talk.

Aias rolled his eyes. It was just silly to him that Al was being this dramatic about everything. "You sided with the enemy. Obviously I was mad at you. And then I tried to apologize but then you wouldn't listen." Or really, he wouldn't read it. Which meant that Aias's apology, which this would have been his first ever apology, had just been lost to the void. Or whatever it was Al did with the notes he obviously didn't read. At some point Aias decided that it wasn't fair his roommate didn't at least read them, but whatever.


But eventually he let out a breath and slid off of Al. Back on his feet, he moved over to the door of the compartment. "But fine. I'm off the team. I'll send Inara my jersey and whatever else you guys need." Because now he knew that it didn't matter. There was no reason for him to play. Lou didn't care any more. And Al obviously didn't care. So why was he even bothering with it? Instead he'd just spend his weekends pestering his dad and uncle in Hogsmeade, at the family pub or whatever it was. Still, he wasn't feeling excellent.


Something about this hurt his heart. He didn't know why, but it did. Maybe he'd go find his older brother and talk to him about everything. He did hover near the door as he thought of what else they needed to settle. "I'll talk to Fjord next year about moving into a different dorm." He added, with a head nod, still not opening the door.
