      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

"I Need A Name Change"

244 posts in this topic

Note: Some of you can now change your name yourself! 

 

If you are an unsorted student (Member group) you get a one-time name change. So, if your name does not abide by Virtual Hogwarts' guidelines, please feel free to take advantage of this before posting here. You may change your name by going to "Account Settings" and then "Display Name." Keep in mind you may only change it once, so type carefully. If you've already used this one-time name change and find that your name still does not meet our site rules, please read the below rules and post here. 

 

If you are an alumni, you can also change your own name (also under "account settings", then "display name"). Alumni are permitted to change their names twice every three years. Alumni should no longer have a need to post in this topic, please use your allotted name changes wisely as any name change requests you post here are unlikely to be approved.  

 

Unless one of the following cases applies to your name, it will not be changed.

 

* 1. Your name does not consist of a first name and last name.

* 2. Your name contains numbers or symbols.

* 3. Your name has an underscore (_) in it, has not been capitalised or is missing a space between the first and last names.

* 4. Your name is a combination of two names from the Harry Potter books.

* 5. Your last name is the same as one of the characters in the Harry Potter books.

* 6. Your name is from another character in any fandom or the name of a real life celebrity.

* 7. Your name contains bad words or sexual innuendo (in which case you probably won't need this thread here anyway because we'll smack an appropriate name of our choice on you.)

* 8. The name you registered with is your real name in which case you should PM me rather than post here and divulge it to the general public

 

Your name will not be changed if you notice that you would rather have a different name, changed your mind about its spelling, its length or any other reason that is not listed up there (e.g. a sudden decision to have your character be related to another character in some way or other). Should you request such a name change, you will be labeled a dunderhead by the committee your post and request will be ignored.

 

ADDENDUM -If your name happens to be shared with a really obscure reference or character from another realm, or is not commonly known, or is a common combination of otherwise unremarkable names. You may not require a name change, a moderator can evaluate your name.

If you are waiting for a name change, and you send in your Sorting Form BEFORE your name is changed, your form will be rejected.

 

All Sorting Forms MUST be sent in under the name you intend to keep for your years at Hogwarts.

 

Please re-send your sorting form AFTER your name has been changed.

 

(This is an administrative issue - not an error on your part. Our unique forms must have your correct name in order to sort you!)

Could you possibly change my name? I know this isn't one of the cases that you mentioned but the girl might be angry. When I signed up I didn't know someone had the same name as me..

 

Could you please change it to Bonnie Logan?

Sorry, but may I have my name changed to Chantrelle Drache? With a space and everything. I seem to have missed the spacebar when registering. Rookie mistake, I know. Thank you for your time.
