As mentioned in our previous announcement, we are now back to what we'll call "normal" for the time being! We thank you so much for your patience during this time, and hope to clear up a few additional questions in this update.
News, Owls, & Rumors: These may be submitted at any time, but may be posted on a slower schedule this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States. We will resume a normal schedule with posting these beginning next week.
Google Docs Threads: For those of you that completed threads on Google Docs during this season, you may until November 30 start a new thread in the appropriate forum with the appropriate title for your thread, and paste the link to the thread in the first post. You must have link sharing on for us to view it. All threads submitted this way and reported as completed by November 30 will be copied over to the forum for you. After this time, you will need to copy your posts yourself to receive credit. If you already feel you have the time to copy over your own threads we encourage you to do so to help speed the process along, but we are happy to assist as a show of our appreciation for your patience over the past few weeks.
Goblet of Fire Timeline: We know that many of you have been excited for the events that take place regarding the Triwizard Tournament in Golden Era. We're here to tell you that there's no reason to worry: by canon, the first task does not even occur until the end of November, so we're right on time! Keep an eye out on the news and on the Golden Era forums for events and plotlines that tie into the tournament and the story of the book.
Posts on the Other Forum: If you have a thread that you would like to attempt to recover, send a private message to the Vault Staff account. You MUST include the following information, or we will not be able to locate your thread:
- The title of the thread (if you have it. if not, please include the rest of this information.)
- The account name of the thread starter
- The account name of at least one other character in the thread
- The era and location of your thread
- A detail from the thread you can remember, such as a quote that was said, a spell that was cast, etc.
Season Ending Dates: This season will end as normal on December 23, 2017. Threads that were posted on the other forum in September that were not finished before the downtime will be allowed an extension to finish these threads once the forum reopens. All threads posted on the current forum must be finished by the end of the season or they will be marked as unfinished, due to the nature of the upcoming forum switch in January.
We hope this clears up some of your concerns, and we're glad to have you back!
