TERM LIII





Welcome to Term LIII


Hello, everyone! I'm Trin, belladiavolo, and I am SO STOKED to be your Voting Mod again this term! I look forward to welcoming new (or returning) members to our community and giving them a positive experience on the platform. I am also looking into implementing a variety of different tactics to try and draw new members to our wonderful community as well as finding ways to engage our current members and make them feel loved.

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: The Mod Account // My Personal E-Mail
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

MONTHLY POINTS EARNING ACTIVITY : HOUSE DISCUSSIONS PART 1





Activity: House Discussions Part 1
Deadline: Tuesday, May 31st @ 5:00pm EST / 10:00 pm UTC
Points: Long debate: Participation 10pts/5kts, Additional comment: 2pts/1kt.
Details: This term we are going to be discussing all of the Hogwarts Houses - starting with SLYTHERIN! This month we are going to talk about all things Slytherin (as the house cup winners). Do you have a favorite snake from the books? A least favorite? Do you think they got a bad rep in the books, or was it deserved considering what some of them got up to? When reading an application for HiH what answer(s) in apps have made it click for you to vote someone into Slytherin instead of another house? Are there any other burning questions that you've always wanted to know from one of the HiH snakes?


Remember - don't forget to sign with your name/house (or a sigtag if you want that bonus point).

TERM LII - March WEEK 1





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.
