Community Membership is always being cleaned; if you are not a member here, at hogwartsishome, you will be deleted from any sub-community that you are a member of. You may rejoin after properly joining this community first. Furthermore, if you have not been sorted and stamped at platform_934, your membership here will be denied.

HOW TO JOIN
1. Join platform_934
2. Fill out the application provided there and post it, making sure that you...
3. Wait for the other members to vote on your application, and then receive an official stamp from our Voting Managers. You may not join other communities or participate until this is done.
4. Once you've been stamped, you're in! You can then join all of the other communities, vote on new members' applications, and participate in activities. If you've got any questions, please ask your prefects.
5. Keep in mind that if the queue is backed up, your application won't show up right away. Please be patient -- it will be posted soon enough!
6. If you are Muggled, you may apply again after two weeks.
7. If you receive a majority of No Votes, you may edit your application, or apply with a new one.
These are the rules for the whole community, this includes hogwartsishome and all of its subsidiaries.
The first time you break any of our rules (unless it is outlandish by all standards), you will be warned. Thereafter, it will result in a point loss for your House -- or worse, banning. If you have issues with a warning or point deduction, please email us; posting complaints about the issue will most likely move the point loss or warning to a permanent banning.
Hogwarts is Home operates a three strike system. Break the rules three times and we will have to ask you to leave the community.
The community is rated according to the BBFC's 15 rating. To read more about the rating, please go here.
We do not require much of our members when it comes to participation, but we do have a few guidelines.
We note who participates each month -- each term we produce a list of people who have participated in at least 1 activity or joined the community within that term (a term lasts 4 months). With that list we then remove anyone who is not a member of hogwartsishome and their common room.
We then post this list to the community and allow people who do not meet the above criteria 24 hours to say they'd like to stay. After that we conduct the members cut.
If you'd like to leave/re-join HiH, please use your house-specific post!
Gryffindor | Hufflepuff | Ravenclaw | Slytherin
Reminder: leaving posts in the main comm will result in 10 points gone and a ban from returning for 6 months.
