Step 4: Join Hogwarts is Home subsidiaries! I've left a list of all of our sub communities for you in your official sorting comment at the end of your platform_934 application, but your prefects should be able to give you more information once you post your introductions.
Step 5: Drop into Diagon Alley and activate your account. I've already created an account for you, so all you have to do is activate it. (If you're a returning member, you will simply have to log back in.) This is where you'll be able to view your owned items and knuts, among other things.
Step 5.1: Don't forget to read through the Newbies’ Primer to the System.
Step 6: Come back to platform_934 to vote each week! Make sure you read our sorting rules here and here, under the header For those Sorting. Not following procedure may result in not receiving points for your house. Please be careful!
Lastly, all of the mods are willing to help you, so if you feel overwhelmed or have any questions, ask around! Your Prefects especially are like your designated tour guides, and your housemates are the perfect mentors!
