Journal Entry: Mon Nov 28, 2011, 2:30 PM


Important: Everybody, please, be aware that the capes on the back of the uniforms are not optional. They are attached at the collar. Please, add them to your application. Also, once you have taken the quiz, please, take a print screen, upload it somewhere, and place the link in the bio.

Hey everybody!

It’s Gin speaking with you at the moment.  I thank all of you for being patient with the admins as we have been very busy.  Now, why am I writing this journal?  We have now gotten everything together to start the application process.  It is totally worth the wait.  I promise everybody this.  Now, I am going to warn that art and writing will be involved with the applications.  Now, here are some guidelines for the applications:

Art & Application

• Full body image of your character
• No chibi drawing of characters (they don’t look like that in the actual setting)
• No bases or tracing. Realizing that some of you use bases, the admins just want the best effort of the members. It’s for the application only. Bases are allowed for works of art.
• Fully Colored
• No rough sketches for profiles
• All fields must be filled out to completion (however, not much detail needs to go in them, because most will be said in the written part)

Written Application

• Every detail must be filled out to completion
• No one word phrases
• Grammar and spelling count! :3
• Please have underneath your art application
• Give the blood status, No "Unknown"

Please us this written application underneath your profile: fav.me/d4c5h0x  Honestly, it has been in the group since the group reopened.  Please use it.

Nobody has to do this with the application, but if you want an accurate weight so that it doesn't befall you on your application, here is a Height/Weight Chartfor everybody to look at.  I realize that some people can be overweight and underweight, but please do not make them severely overweight or underweight unless they have a medical reason.

All applications must have an art and written application. We are not looking for the best artists; however, art will count. We’re mainly judging on effort, creativity, and originality. Those are the application guidelines for the application.  Everybody must draw and write about their character.  It’s not just about the art.  Believe me, I’m a writer more than an artist.  Finally, just have fun creating your characters.  We want everybody to thoroughly enjoy themselves when making a new (or revamping an old) character.

Also, please take the tests that are given to you.  Take a screenshot then post it on the profile.

When you are finished with your profile, please send the application through a join request. Thank you.

Do we pick our house, or is it assigned to us based on the info given?

Find a sorting hat quiz, take the quiz, and the house is the one your character is in.

I find that making the character first is easier as then I can treat like they are taking the quiz.

You need to take a house quiz for your character. A good one (that we normally give out) is [link] We require a screen shot of the results for your character to get in.

Just a quick question, do you know yet when in May the next application process will begin? Just by looking at this, I'm assuming it's the beginning, but just wanting to make sure (:

Just a question about the application periods. Having a period from May to June seems a bit complicated as that's usually the dates where school exams take place. Shouldn't it be better for it to be in March instead?

I've been wondering...when the time comes for the admins to review and accept/decline applications, will they try to make each house have the same number of students?
For example, if the student applications per house were as follows:
gryffindor - 11
ravenclaw - 19
hufflepuff - 23
slytherin - 14
then would the most number of accepted applicants possible per house be determined by the lowest number (in this case being 11, should all of the gryffindors be accepted)? Would some students be accepted but required to switch to a house that had a lower number of applicants/accepted applicants in order to even out the houses?
Sorry, this has just been on my mind lately and I was curious.

SilverNee Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
We would like to keep the number the same, but we'll judge based on the time and effort that was put into the application. We would like about 20 maximum for each house, but we will probably not get that for all the houses. When the next enrollment period rolls around, if one house is vastly larger then the others, then we will probably limit the number of spots for that house which would make it harder to get into that house.

If I am new to the whole group, do I need to put down anything for things like schedule and friends, since I don't technically know that yet? Also, is it possible to have transferred from a different magic school (like Durmstrang or Beauxbatons?)?
Sorry I've been asking so many questions! I've just finished the drawn app, and didn't know what to do next.

SilverNee Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
They can be from a different magic school. However, you need to describe their life at that school until the current year. You don't need to put things about schedules or friends yet, but please update as the year goes on. Thank you. ~

It's just a 100 years in the future. I'm going to assume, since it is Hogwarts, it won't have some crazy technological advantages. We did the time skip to break away from the actual plot of the books, and to be able to use OC characters, not the canon ones from the book.

the written portion of the application, it says "Courses". Do we have to go by something with this, or do we just pick whichever classes? This might've been answered somewhere but I missed it. D:
