      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

Seven Letters today, a record!

2 posts in this topic

Devin laughed as he read the letter Nicole sent him, about a full month ago. He didn't have time to send his vback after the hole Raven/Nicole/Devin fight. Well, now everything was going smoothly with the three and Devin had a girlfriend so what could be wrong?


So, making his way to the stinky owlery, he decided to write a letter to his five good friends and his girlfriend. Inviting them to his place sometime during the holidays. Yes, his aunt and uncle would have a total fit when they hear he's inviting six people, but that's life when your a outgoing ickle at hogwarts.


To: Raven Ashcroft (Gryffindor CR)

From: Devin Oakwood


Hey, how are you doing? I know we just hung out a while ago but you know how things are. We can't stay away from each other two long can't we? Haha, actually that's half of why i'm writing to you. First off, I scedualed when we can meet up this holiday. I'll be inviting you, Nicole, Nicky, Jaemea and Ambience. You know Ambience right? If not, I should totally introduce you to her, she's a good friend.


So anyway, it'll be sometime after christmas because my aunt is expecting my cousin on Christmas eve!! She also wants us alone during our first christmas together. Anyway, it'll be around the 27th-28th or something. You guys can also sleep over for a night if you want.


Love for always,


Now that was nice, he should now reply to Nicole and then just send a note to Jaemea, Nicky and Ambience. Making sure the letter to Raven wasn't going anywhere, he took a other peace of parchement paper and thought of what he would write to his Pink haired Gryffindor friend. "Hmm,' he said smiling as he spotted Dodger, his owl. "I'll also write to my uncle and aunt." he whispered as the white owl perched on his shoulder.


To: Nicole Amber (GCR)

From: Devin Oakwood


Hey, I know, I haven't written to you in weeks! But i'm sorry, I didn't have much time and I didn't think you'd care to read this when the fight began. Well, now were on good terms again and that's good right? So, my brothers are the coolest right? They made your little bro a non-nerd anymore. Well, no offence.


Plus, I'm dying to see that picture! (OOCly: Awesome job with it!) I just remembered, would you, and maybe Ralph, want to come over for the holidays? I'm inviting Raven, Nicky, Ambi and Jaemea. Oh yeah, You know about this already, I forgot. So yeah, still available to come? If so, you can write to me before term ends, i'll try to read and send back a letter ASAP.


Enough chatting now, it's just some useless stuff anyway, I don't know why I write so much, I guess I have a lot to say. You, me and Raven should get together soon and talk about what's been going on lately, I feel we aren't as close as we used to be us too anymore.


Your Hoofle friend



His wrist was hurting now, two letters, wait, to big letters in a row was hard on the small wrist. Plus, he still had five more to go. Yes, Six letters. Seven letters, six going around Hogwarts, that was a record. So next on the list was Nicholas J Hamblin. The guy Devin liked hanging out with the most. He should definatly come, and maybe bring his little cousin, what was his name? along to play with the twins and Ralph.


Nicholas J Hamblin (Gryffindor CR)

From: Devin Oakwood


Hey dude, what's up? Me, not so much, I was just wondering if you'd like to come over at my place during the holidays? I also invited Raven, Nicole, aemea, Ambience and Nicole's brother, oh that reminds me, you know your little cousin, I forgot his name, Tyson? Tyler? I'm not even close aren't I? Anyway, would you come?


That's pretty much it.


Now that was pretty small. I guess he had more to say to his two bestest friends, one of them was his girlfriend too... Wow, Devin Oakwood, your life is so dramatic lately. Well your Pupateer made it that way! :P So who next? Jaemea, right. He flexed his wrist before grabbinmg a other parchement and dipped his quill in ink. Now, this one was going to be short too, good.


To: Jaemea Good (GCR)

From: Devin Oakwood


Hey, I haven't writen to you yet. How are you? Anyway, I just wanted to invite you over to my place over the winter holidays. Raven, Nicole, Nicky and Ambience (a Hoofle friend of mine) are also coming. I'll give you further details in the next letter, if you are allowed to come, or want to. So yeah, that's it pretty mcuh.




Okay, the smell was getting Devin now. He only had one letter to write next. He might see Ambi in the Common Room again before the holidays but just to make sure...


To: Ambience Valentin (Hufflepuff Common Room) That's a first!

From: Devin Oakwood


Hey Ambi, what's up? Me? nothing to much. So the reason i'm writing to you is because I wanted to ask you if you wanted to come over at my place during the winter holidays. Some other people are incvited too. You might not know much of them but their's Raven Ashcroft, Nicole Amber, Nicholas Hamblin, Jaemea Good... All Gryffindors, I know but I was planning on heading there too and I fit in! Haha, anyway, i'll fill you in on more details if you can come!



Now, all the letters were writen. He only had one left but that would be for a other time. He fed Dodger a dead rat and the white bird flew away. Devin sighted impatiantly. "What a dumb bird, I feed him so he can deliver my letters but nooo, he only gets the treat, not the task..." he said in a still impatiant tone. Devin's pupateer is also getting impatiant on how long this RP is!!! So Devin, and his pupateer waited for a other one too come and hope he won't take off with the baccon he had tooken oyut of the kitchens one morning.
