How to become a Member


Please follow these steps IN THIS ORDER to bring your account onto our site. If you do not do these in this order, your account will most likely become stuck!
  1. Register your account, filling out the registration form (see this FAQ for more details).
  2. Log into your email account. A validation email will be sent to your email address. Follow the instructions carefully on that email; you will need to click on a link in that email for your account to be activated. If this does not happen right away, please keep checking your email account. This may take some time.
  3. Log onto our site with your new account.
  4. Read the Rules. This is very important because we will NOT take the excuse later that you "forgot to read the rules".
  5. Locate the 1 - Character Role Call topic, read the instructions in the first post and make your post.
  6. MAKE SURE YOU POST THE CORRECT WORD COUNT ON YOUR ROLE CALL FORM! Call this a first "test" to see if you can actually read and follow rules, but if you haven't written the correct number of words asked for on the Role Call form, you won't be admitted to this site!

    Check your word count by following this link.
  7. A member of the staff will review your Role Call post, and put your character face claim into the Character Face Masterlist. They will make your post VISIBLE.
  8. Once your post has been made VISIBLE, you should post in Your Hogwarts Letter. Again, please read the instructions in the first post of that topic before you post. Your post will be INVISIBLE.
  9. A member of the staff will review your Hogwarts Letter post, and make it visible. Once it is also visible, you are now free to begin posting in The Leaky Cauldron.
Things to Remember
  • You need some PATIENCE when registering. The staff must review your account before you will be allowed to proceed. If you try to rush, your account will become stuck.
  • If you posted in the Your Hogwarts Letter before your post in the Character Role Call thread was made visible, your account will become stuck.
  • If your account becomes stuck, you MUST wait 24 hours before reporting it to staff. We will be continually reviewing all new accounts during registration weekend and the week after, so in all likelihood, we'll discover your problem and fix it before then, so keep checking your account to see if it becomes un-stuck.

Hello everyone!

This is a reminder to check back in the Roll Call thread after you have posted, to see if your post has actually been validated. This will serve a number of purposes; if you post anywhere else before this post is visible, you will cause your account to become 'stuck' - meaning that your user group will NOT bump up until an administrator manually adjusts it.

It will also allow you to see any notes that the staff members might've left in your Roll Call post. Due to prior abuse, your user accounts cannot send/receive PM's. So this is our only method of communication at this stage, and if there are any issues with the things that you have posted - it will be noted in your post. Things can be things like a face claim already being selected and unavailable for your use, or details in your family/character's backstory and history.

So please, please, please - check back here to be sure that your post is visible, and that there are no notes!

IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR REGISTERING CHARACTERS!


Please be advised that there is a new entry on the form used in the Character Roll Call thread.

Existing relationships to on board characters: --this is also a simple entry to record the on-board relatives of your character. Please only list those relatives who are ALREADY registered on board and/or who will be registering during the same weekend as your character. Be sure to list: siblings (full siblings, half siblings, adopted siblings) and first cousins. Note: if your character will not be aware IC (in-character) that they have relatives on board, please list them in this spot anyway.

Character Face Masterlist Reminder!

Please be sure that you are checking the Character Face Masterlist (CFM) after your Roll Call post is validated! This is to ensure that your chaaracter's face claim HAS BEEN ENTERED!. If your Character Roll Call post is validated, and you do not see your ENTRY listed on the CFM, please alert a member of staff; we will correct it for you immediately.

BUMP!!!


Please remember to use the new form! Your account cannot be validated until you have posted using the correct template in Character Roll Call!

ALSO - we have a number of posts coming into the How You Got Your Letters forum before your Roll Call posts are being validated! Right now we are running registration with a LIMITED number of staff and are already experiencing delays. It takes us quite awhile to sort out the stuck accounts; please do not post your letter until your ROLL CALL post is approved!

BUMP!!!

Guys, please read the above! We have a LARGE number of accounts getting stuck because there is no wait between posting in the Roll Call and in the Letters! The Roll Call post HAS to be approved before you can post your letter; if you do not do this, your account will get stuck and we will have to unstick you!

Please also remember that it can take up to 24 hours for us to approve your post! Please do NOT double/triple/quadruple post smile2.gif

Announcement for Incoming Students (newly registered 11 year olds who have NOT yet been sorted):

As many of you are aware, PottersWorld has been in the midst of a long standing war which is quickly coming to a head. At this time, many of the members of the wizarding community have gone into hiding at a camp run by the Order of the Phoenix to both prepare for the upcoming war as well as to protect those who need it. Some of these people have chosen to take their student children into hiding as well, believing that Hogwarts is no longer safe from the Cadena's dark grip.

As a new student, you have two (2) options and must post this in your Hogwarts letter application under the appropriate question. Choose wisely.

- You may chose to attend Hogwarts as usual. This means that your student would shop for school supplies in Hogsmeade, ride the boats to the castle, and be sorted in the same way that every student in Hogwarts' history has done. Be aware, this isn't the same wizarding world your grandparents grew up in- it is a volatile place and danger lurks everywhere.

- You might decide that your character's family would be in hiding/training and that they would be there as well. If this is your choice, keep in mind that your character will NOT be sorted at this time, so please do NOT post in the sorting thread or elsewhere until you have been given access to the Forest of Havencroft. There are tutors and resources for learning magic at the camp. If your character is in hiding, they will not be permitted to post elsewhere on the board while they remain in the camp. ALL students must have a parent or guardian present while residing in the camp. Please review the camp rules found HERE.

Should you chose to send your student to school at Hogwarts, you will be able to sign them up to be in hiding as long as sign ups are open, however the rules regarding access to the camp remain the same.
