FAWKES SORTING
"We must unite inside her
or we'll crumble from within;
I have told you, I have warned you...
Let the sorting now begin."



Fawkes F.A.Q.



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.


To Applicants

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. :)

  1. Please fill out the application below completely, considering a 'why' and 'explain' after most of the questions. fawkes_reunion is not a rating community; we want to get to know you so we can place you properly.

  2. Place your application under an LJ-cut. If you do not know how to do this please go HERE. Please also bold all of your questions as it makes it easier to read.

  3. You are not allowed to edit your application, save for LJ-cuts (if you didn't put one there), titles, and any grammatical/spelling errors. Do not delete your application unless you plan to stop your sort and no longer wish to be sorted.

  4. Include the word 'SNITCH' in the subject line of your application so we know you've read the rules.

  5. While we ask our voters to have respect, please also have respect for them.

  6. Remember that we are the ones sorting you. Try not to push for the house you would most like to be in. Just state your qualities and let us decide.

  7. It is advised that you look over your application before submitting, for grammar and spelling as well as general meaning and formatting issues.

  8. You are allowed to comment on your sorting application, however, remember that this may also affect your sorting if there are flamebait replies. If any major issues arise, please contact the sorting caretaker lariren_shadow by email (serenahalliwell@aol.com) or a Head of House.

  9. After joining fawkes_sorting, please submit your application within seven days or you will be removed from this subsidiary community. :)

  10. If there are many mistakes in an application, or if it doesn't seem fit (i.e., a troll submitting an application), the Sorting Caretaker may reject the application from the queue.

THE APPLICATION



Guidelines for Voters

  1. First and foremost, be respectful. Sort people the way you want to be sorted and before you post a comment, think "Would I want to hear that?" This does not mean that you sugarcoat all your comments, just be aware, applicants are people as well.

  2. Place your HOUSE in the SUBJECT LINE of your vote, this makes it easier for your Heads of House to count who has voted on what application.

  3. BOLD your final house vote, this makes it easier on the sorting caretaker when the final tally comes around.

  4. Remember - A regular vote will gain one point for your house, a vote of over 150 words will gain three points for your house and a vote of over 300 words will gain seven points! Not to mention a ten point bonus for 'top sorters' (people who sort all of the applications)! Please do not pad your votes with random extra sentences that don't pertain to your sort in order to simply get points.

  5. Applications will be dropped from MONDAY to THURSDAY and they will be stamped on SUNDAY after 8pm EST, so please get your votes in before that!

  6. Reminder - we have six houses to sort people into, as well as Kwikspell and Muggle. The latter house should be reserved for serious offenses, such as plagiarism or highly offensive language. Keep in mind that if you Muggle someone, they cannot re-apply. Ever.


The Stamping Banners

 Slytherclaw Banner Ravenpuff Banner

 Kwikspell Banner Muggle Banner


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.

Good luck!
