TERM XLVII





Welcome to Term XLVII



Hello, everyone! I'm Trin, belladiavolo, and I am ABSOLUTELY EXCITED to be your Voting Mod this term! I look forward to welcoming new (or returning) members to our community and giving them a positive experience on the platform.

With that said, I welcome any questions or suggestions you may have. Please don't hesitate to reach out through any of the methods listed below (If you message the mod account and do not hear back from me within 24 hours, please feel free to send a message to my personal e-mail):

EMAIL: votingmod@gmail.com // slythertrin@gmail.com
PRIVATE MESSAGE: votingmod // belladiavolo
SUGGESTIONS POST: contact here

Additionally, I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you of the rules and resources we have here at platform_934. If it's been a while since you've looked them over, please do take a few moments here at the beginning of the term to refresh your knowledge. They answer many of the common questions associated with this community, and provide you with excellent tips and tricks to make your participation here much more straightforward and enjoyable:

PLATFORM 9 3/4 FAQ: located here
SORTING RULES: located here
TOP SORTER LEVELS: located here
SORTING CHEAT SHEETS: located here

For the sake of continuity, I intend to honor last term's deadlines as well, which means that voting will close at 9:00 PM MST on Sunday (3:00 AM UTC Monday).

I’d also like to make special note of the two new rules implemented, which are still in effect:

• All votes must be placed in the subject line of your comment. Failure to do so will result in receiving zero points for your vote.
• Elaborated votes are worth five points. In order to receive these points, you must also sign your vote with either a sigtag or a HIH-specific icon.

♥, Trin

TERM XLVII - MAY WEEK 4





Hello, everyone!

Unfortunately, there are currently zero applications in the queue. If any applications come in within the next 24 hours, I will post them, otherwise, this will be another quiet week for platform_934.

If you have any friends who might like to join, now would be a great time to encourage them to get their applications in. (Don't forget that you will earn referral points for your house for every applicant who mentions you by username!) Please note that all received applications must comply with the sorting rules in order to be posted. If you have any questions about these or anything else, don't hesitate to contact me.

Platform Lottery & Referrals Are Coming BACK!



Lottery and Referrals

In an attempt to bring in some new blood - one of the things I'm bringing back this term is the monthly lottery and referrals. If you aren't familiar with the process or would just like a refresher, please read ahead to learn what you can do to earn additional points for your house:

The Lottery

Choose any promotional graphic or text, or create your own community promotion to display in the user information section of your journal. For each week of the month, I will check the profile of a random member of each house. If that member is displaying a promotion for either hogwartsishome or platform_934, points will be assigned accordingly:

25 PTS for a graphic with a link
5 PTS for a graphic without a link
5 PTS for text with a link

If you would prefer not to promote our community in your userinformation, you may post a public entry in your journal instead. You may view a sample of pre-made text-based promotions here to copy, or for your inspiration. If you choose this option, your entry must be immediately found and visible by someone who is not on your friends' list.

Referrals

Do you know of someone who might be interested in joining our community? If an applicant mentions your username in their application here at platform_934, you will receive points for your house. The breakdown is as follows:

5 PTS if the applicant mentions one person
4 PTS if the applicant mentions two people
3 PTS if the applicant mentions three people
2 PTS if the applicant mentions four people
1 PT if the applicant mentions five people

I will be posting points for both The Lottery and Referrals at the end of each month. Please let me know if you have any questions (comments are screened) - and help us get some new faces at Hogwarts is Home!
