xx [Announcement] Canon updates!

August 02, 2017, 04:39:13 AM by Albus Dumbledore
Hi everyone!

Due to the recent queries we've had about canon characters, we've decided to update the current system in play, and there are some changes that are noteworthy.
  • Canon claims will now hold for six months instead of three after application approval
  • Should you need an extension, it is your responsibility to PM either @Taylor or @Olivia before the claim is up, preferably with evidence to show that there has been some work done on the character.
  • Extensions, if granted, last for six months and are non-renewable; if you are unable to finish the canon sheet after that, you can reapply for said canon.
  • In the event that you fail to PM an admin after the original claim is up and someone else applies for the same canon, you can also reapply, but there will be no guarantee that you get the same character again.
  • As a transition to the new system, all drivers holding current claims will be contacted within the next day or two and asked to respond via PM as to whether or not they are still interested in pursuing their claimed canon.
    -- If yes, a six-month extension will be granted from the date the driver responds to the PM.
    -- If no, the character will be "released" and open for new applications.
    -- If no response after one week, the character will be "released" and open for new applications.
  • These new rules will be effective immediately for any new and pending applications.

The first post of the Free & Taken Canon Characters has also been updated to reflect the changes.

If you have any questions, please post them here!

xx [Announcement] Moderators wanted!

July 30, 2017, 04:36:11 AM by Albus Dumbledore
With the expansion of schools, and Koldovstoretz being added to the mix of played schools, we are going to be doing something a little different going forward for team openings. We are seeking three moderators: one for the Durmstrang team and two for the Koldovstoretz team. These moderators will be members of the house teams and will assist in moderating the entire forum, however they will not be sorting and many aspects of the technical side of MH will be off limits to these individuals. As these moderators progress on the team, they will have a chance to be promoted to admin.

As with all openings, applicants need to be reliable, active both IC and behind the scenes, courteous, a team player, and can commit to following through with various tasks. The ideal candidates should be familiar with the rules of the site, schools, Harry Potter canon and MH canon, and OOC areas.

If you're interested, please fill out the application below and PM it to @Fee .

Applications will be open until August 6th.

Code: [Select]
[b]Name/alias:[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]Timezone:[/b]
[b]When did you join MH?[/b]
[b]Prior admin/mod experience:[/b]
[b]Why would you be a good fit?[/b]

xx [Announcement] MH is on discord!

July 19, 2017, 09:02:50 PM by Albus Dumbledore
Hey y'all!

I have some exciting news today. Magical Hogwarts is officially on discord! If you'd like to chat with other MHers, but don't want to rely on skype, discord is for you. There are a few ways you can access the server: via MH's chat (which can be accessed here or via the MH Chat button on the menu), through discord's website (here), there's a Mac OS app if you're an apple user, and there are apps for iPhone and android.

If you're interested in joining, you can search our server (Magical Hogwarts) or send @Fee a PM and she'll send you an invite.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or send Fee a PM.
