      How to get sorted   03/03/2018

      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.   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, March 3rd Sorting Form closes: Friday, April 6th (No forms will be accepted after this date) The Sorting Ceremony closes: Sunday, April 8th, about 10am Central Time You find out your new house: Sunday, April 8th, 11 am Central Time First day of the new school year: Monday, April 9th   (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

Jeff's Summer Before Hogwarts, Year 1

1 post in this topic

It was a nice, warm day at Diagon Alley. Jeff had just came out the Leaky Cauldron with his parents since they didn't have any floo powder, let alone fireplace to use it! So after walking around, he strode right into Gladrags London. He said to the Shopkeeper; "Hi, I was just needing some new robes for school this year. Do you have anything that could SUIT me?" "Ha ha ha little tike, very clever. Of course we have robes and other clothes for the school year as well, please follow me!" replied the Shopkeeper. Jeff was just about to fall asleep when the man said; "Done! Here are your hat and robes!" Jeff thanked the man and walked briskly out of the shop.


So on Jeff went down Diagon Alley, he soon found Flourish and Blotts. He figured he would get his books from there. "Hello?" he said into the empty shop. Soon a tall man had appeared out of nowhere. "You ring?" he asked. "Yes," Jeff replies. "I need the set of textbooks that'll get me from my first year at Hogwarts to my third year. Plus a few jars of ink and about 2 or 3 dozen macaw quills." "Sure thing! Coming right up!" after a few minutes of waiting, Jeff saw the man appear out of nowhere again with an armload of books, feathers, and ink. "Here you go young man. Enjoy!" he said. "Thank you very much sir! Also, do you know where I will be able to get my potions ingredients?"


So down the road, he finally saw a shop that said, Slugs and Jiggers, just like the man said. Jeff walks into this shop and wonders what he will see. "'ello chap! You look like a man who could use some school supplies, yes?" says a strange man. But before Jeff could say anything the man says; "You look like you want to do big things at school, so let's see, ah! 'ere we go, the advanced potions kit, brass scales, and a #2 iron cauldron!" That was fast. Thought Jeff. Now he was off to go see his mum and dad who said they needed to get him a special something. I wonder what it could possibly be? Jeff thought as he walked down to the Magical Menagerie where he would meet his parents.


Sorry 'bout name, just confused it with another account of mine on a different site!
