      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

Apparition Instructor and Shopkeeper Ambiance Applications Open

1 post in this topic

We are hiring a few Staff members at this time. If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of making VH an exciting place, now is definitely the time to apply! As a Staff Member, your job first and foremost will be to roleplay with students, providing ambience to the site as a whole.


We have an opening for an Apparition Instructor. This position is open to applications from alumni characters or original characters. Applicants may also use characters created for the Adult Crossfire Classic, if they so wish.


We also have space for some ambiance (roleplay only) shopkeepers. What does that mean? It means you aren't in charge of filling any orders! Your job is to invade threads and be available to provide world-building ambiance to the areas you are assigned to such as the Three Broomsticks.  This role is open to Alumni, original characters and any characters created for the Crossfire Classic that may wish to be gainfully employed and stick around to contribute to the site environment post tournament. Any questions about staff or the application? Don't hesitate to send me a PM.


PM all applications to Snape by October 23rd. Please note that if we receive an application that we really love, we might hire that person before the deadline is up.


If we do not receive any applications we are super excited about we may not hire applicants and instead transfer the instructor/shopkeeper roles to NPC descriptions usable by characters wishing to include them in their roleplays.



Part I: About You                                                
The name(s) of your VH Character(s):

An AIM address we could reach you on (optional):

How often are you online, and for how long?

How old are you? (You may be as specific or non-specific as you like.)

What have you done for Virtual Hogwarts in the past? (Be creative, if duel a lot: Tell us. If you roleplay often: Tell us. Etc)

Part II: Your Character                                       
Why <Apparition>//<Shopkeeper>?


If this is for a shopkeeper what shop are you interested in (please also list any shops you would NOT be interested in):


Given the chance, which character (canon or invented by you) would you choose to play? Tell us a little bit about this character.


What is your character's attitude towards his/her job? How would he or she interact with children/other staff members/faculty?


Please submit a sample role play for your preferred position.


Do you have any ideas for improving how your area is run?


How do you feel about detention at VH? (What kind of detentions would you give? etc)


If given the opportunity to serve in a position of authority, what would you do to better VH?
