Welcome to Term XLI

Welcome to Term XLI

Hello, everyone! I'm Andie (tralfamadore), and I'd like to take a minute to introduce myself and welcome you to the start of our new term. I'm very excited to be serving as your Voting Manager for these next few months. I've held this position a few times before, and it's great to be back once again! I've always thought this community operates smoothly as the first stop for prospective members. 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:

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 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

As an important note: voting will close at 9:00 PM CDT on Sunday (2:00 AM UTC Monday), which is one hour earlier than last term. (Sorry loves, I'm old.) I'll be sure to reiterate this point for every week's sorting, of course. This may be subject to change if I find it isn't working for the community, but I'll give you plenty of notice and leeway in the readjustment.

I'd also like to make special note of the two rules implemented a few terms back, 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.

Looking forward to this upcoming term! Please let me know if there's anything you need and tell all your friends.

- Andie
