"We must unite inside her
or we'll crumble from within;
I have told you, I have warned you...
Let the sorting now begin."
The Sorting Procedure
You have stepped into our great hall for the first time. It is quite the honor to welcome you here and we hope to soon count you amongst us. Still, we have to know where to place you. In order to do that, we have to ask you to complete our application.
The application is a form that just about every sorting community asks of prospective members. We strive to give you an interesting one that will both challenge you to seek within yourself for answers and will help us determine which of our six houses best suits you. Please try to answer the questions as accurately and completely as possible, as we want to put you in the house that best matches who you are.
If these rules are ignored, your application will not be sorted on or may be rejected from the queue. Please read these and follow them so that we know you have read the instructions. :)
Guidelines for Voters
The Stamping Banners
When you are stamped you will receive one of these stamps, you may keep and use them if you wish, but please upload to your own server. I suggest photobucket.com. If you received a 'muggle' stamp you are not allowed to reapply to this community. If you are 'kwikspelled' you will be given limited access to fawkes_cauldron and fawkes_reunion. You will have a common room (fr_kwikspell) where you can get a sponsor and reapply to be fully sorted.
