ANNOUNCEMENT
Summer is over, and Term 13 has begun at Hogwarts! However, due to recent and prolonged inactivity, the admins have decided to freeze time at this moment! Because our site has a progressing timeline, when inactivity occurs it becomes incredibly difficult for all members to develop their individual plots and also makes it very hard for the admins to incorporate a global plot for the site. We hope that freezing time in this term will allow all members, including ourselves of course, to not only become more active, but also allow us all to fill the plot holes created by the recent lack in activity.

As of today, we are in Term 13, and the month is September. For the time being, please do not create threads that take place after Halloween. Instead, use this time to focus on completing start of term threads, class threads, and also to continue and finish any old threads that you may have forgotten about.

The admins will progress time forward as we see fit, and will always make an announcement when we do.

UPDATES TO COME

Site Plot
The admins are working on some new and creative ideas to improve the global site plot. In order to be sure that our plot will progress properly, we may need to reassess which characters would like to join the plot and the size of their respective roles, so please look out for any updates concerning the plot and participate actively if you wish to be part of it!!

New Skin
I'm currently working on a new, custom skin for the site! I'm not promising that it will be complete soon, as I'm incredibly busy at the moment because of the wedding, our new house, and an exam that I have to take for work. However, after the wedding, this is something that I intend to work on very actively, and I'm really excited to have time to do it. So, not immediately, but definitely to come!

Activity Requirements
In the past, we have not had any rules in concern to activity. But we feel that it is time to put in place an Activity Requirement, simply to hold all members, including the Admins, responsible for the success of the site. This requirement will not take effect immediately, but will be enforced strictly when we choose to once again progress time forward. Our new rule concerning activity will be as follows:

Each member must write at least one post, per character, per week. Failure to post with a character will result in a warning for that character. After three warnings, the admins have the right to delete the character entirely.

So, basically, what this means is that if you have one character, you are expected to post with that character at least once a week. If you have five characters, you are expected to post with each of them at least once a week. If any of your characters become inactive, you will receive a warning for that character, and can eventually lose that character if their activity does not improve. Of course, anybody with a documented absence is exempt from this rule at the time of their absence. The reason for this rule is to ensure that we are not only being active, but that we are actively focusing on all of our characters. If you have eight characters, but don't have time to post with each of them at least once per week, then you probably shouldn't have eight characters. We're going for quality, not quantity.

Again, this rule will not take effect until we unfreeze time, but we would like everyone to do their best to start practicing this rule now. If there is a character that you are certain you can not keep up with, please speak with an admin about dropping that character.

General Site Cleanup
Basically, in addition to everything above, we'll be going through the site and doing our best to clean it up and make it neater. We'll be archiving dead threads, deleting old members that aren't part of our site, tweaking rules, forums, and just making general improvements where we see fit. We'll basically be in a functional state of construction for a little while.

Conclusion
BASICALLY JUST KEEP BEING YOUR AWESOME SELVES AND POST A SHIT TON MORE, AND WE'LL DO THE SAME Very Happy No, but seriously, thank you guys for being awesome members, and for bearing with us through this inactivity. LTM can seriously boast about having the best community out there, and it's definitely time to bring it back to it's full strength. If anyone has any suggestions about ways that we could improve the site, please don't hesitate to use the suggestion corner or PM one of the admins. Now is the time to bring those kind of things up! So basically, just do your best to be active, work on tying up your character plots, and the admins will do our best to be active with our characters for you, to be active with our admining for you, and to answer any questions anyone may have.
