    Hi everyone,

    With the end of the school terms, we have some important announcements to make regarding the age up of student characters as well as posting deadlines.

    Please take a look below regarding each school's policy:

    Age Up Requirements for Students
    - Hogwarts Students: Post 2 class posts this term, Update your student's character sheet to include the last year of events
    - Durmstrang Students: Post 2 class posts this term, Update your student's character sheet to include the last year of events
    - Beauxbatons Students: Update your student's character sheet to include the last year of events
    - Mahoutokoro Students: Post in the First Rank Test thread, Update your student's character sheet to include the last year of events

    To Submit your Student for an Age Up:
    - Update your character sheet to include the last year of events
    - Post under your character's account in the Character changes & retcons thread
    - Link to at least 2 class posts (if applicable)

    Please use this code when you post for Age Up Approval:
    Code: [Select]
    [b]Character's name:[/b]
    [b]Changes made:[/b]
    [b]Links to required posts:[/b] (if applicable)


    School Thread Deadlines
    Because we are now in July playtime IC, each school's term has ended. No new threads at any school may be started until the next term begins.

    Should you have existing threads, you have from now until we change to August playtime IC to finish these threads. After we change to August playtime, you will no longer be permitted to post in threads at the schools. August playtime IC is slated to start on June 21st.



    Should you have any questions, please post them here!

    Thanks!
    ~The Admin Team

    Okay, so I'm rather embarrassed and reeeeally frustrated with myself, as I know I'm probably one of the only people who hasn't gotten all my class posts done, but does this:

    Should you have existing threads, you have from now until we change to August playtime IC to finish these threads. After we change to August playtime, you will no longer be permitted to post in threads at the schools. August playtime IC is slated to start on June 21st.

    apply to class threads as well, or do I have no shot at getting Abby aged up anymore?

    All school threads are open until August playtime IC. So whatever Hogwarts threads are open now, you can post in. It looks like Charms, DADA and Divination are all options available right now. If you post before we change to August playtime on June 21, you should be able to age Abby up normally.

    Hi @Spencer 
    Because we announced the age up terms in May of 2016 and it doesn't appear you were on hiatus for the entire time since then, we would prefer you complete the two class posts for Caden. There are still several classes open at Hogwarts that you could post in including Charms, Divination, and DADA. These threads will be open until August playtime which is slated to start on June 21 so you have almost a month to do those two posts.
    Let me know if you have any questions, thanks!

    Hi!

    Do we have until August or September playtime to update character sheets and all that?

    To clarify - when August playtime begins, all class threads will be closed and locked.  You will need to update your character sheets before September playtime begins to have your students in the correct years. :)

    Also posts made in the Class threads at ISS also count toward the post requirements! Feel free to jump in any of the lessons, the first of which is located here.

    Come to divination class! It's still running and Sam will be delighted to see another student, even if it's only for one post! Same goes for any Hoggies students who want to age up but aren't quite there yet... :)

    I have kept the Astronomy Final open and will leave it open until August playtime as an OOC extension. This too can count towards participation requirements based on my understanding from @Samm. :3


    Also BB CoMC is still open. I plan to post there this week with Heloise to move it forward. :D
