Application tips and FAQ  

The application

All applicants must be 13 or older. Pretty self explanatory.

This is our one shot to know you. Go crazy! Have fun!We don't care who you dislike in terms of characters, and we are not here to judge you on anything other than what house you belong in. We want to know YOU. That means that whatever house you think you belong in has no place in your application. We want your honest answers so we can see you.

Take your time. The application doesn't need to be done in one sitting. I strongly advise saving your application to your journal.

ELABORATE! This is a big one. One sentence answers do not cut it. We don't need a college dissertation on why you would change the meals in the Great Hall but we would like to know why you feel the way you do.

Make Sure you have time for this community. We are more than just sorting. It's not fair to housemates when someone gets sorted and they never contribute towards the house cup or anything else. If you don't have time for sub-communities maybe this isn't the best place to apply.

House bashing. It is not tolerated at hh_sorting. You may not want to be in Ravenclaw. OK fine, but do not say something like "All Ravenclaws are nerds and jerks". All houses here are wonderful and have outstanding members. Keep in mind that people in the houses that you may not like will be voting on you.

House pushing Same as above. You may think you belong in a certain house. Do NOT tailor your application to try and make sure you get in that house. If you truly belong in your favorite house than your application will speak it for you. If you are getting votes for another house maybe you should re-read your application to see where the votes are coming from.

There is more on the houses and what characteristics they exemplify here: here

tYpe Lyke Ths? Prepare to face the wrath of all the houses. Chatspeak is NOT recommended. Spell-check is quick, easy, and it's free. I strongly encourage taking advantage of it.

DO NOT DELETE YOUR APPLICATION. If your votes are not going well do not get angry and delete your application. Not only will I ban you, I will put you up for public ridicule. If you delete your application before I stamp you, you will not be allowed to re-apply. No excuses, no explanations wanted.

You may respond to votes. I do not wish to wade through threads of chat, but if you question something you may respond politely and ask the sorter to clarify what they meant.

Do not vote on other applicants before you are stamped

Make sure your application is complete before submitting. You will NOT be allowed to change your application after it has been put up for voting.

To make sure you have read the rules, in the subject line of your application please put your favorite animal.
