Application Instructions

Postby From the Desk of the Minister » Mon Oct 13, 2014 6:38 pm

NOTE: If this is your first character on the site, you should've already followed the Getting Started guide and made your social page.

APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS

The Ministry uses profile applications, meaning your character's application is stored in their profile fields instead of a separate thread. When filling out your character's date of birth, note that the current game date is the gray bar underneath the banner on the right. Check the Job Hierarchy list to pick a job for your character.

Our policy on Application Rejections is located here.

INSTRUCTIONS

The following informational links might also be useful: Application FAQ, Wizarding Schools, Wand Lore, Medical Professionals at the Ministry, Law Enforcement - Job Descriptions & Culture, Playable Races & Special Abilities, Useful Dates

When you're ready for your profile to be reviewed, let us know in this thread.

Characters with Special Abilities
(Special Magical Statuses)


Characters with special abilities (Seer, Animagus, Metamorphmagus, Werewolf, Ghost, Vampire, and Half-Vampire) are restricted and must be purchased through the OOC Inventory system. The current price is 50 Galleons or any 2 items from your inventory sheet.

Additionally, their applications will be more closely screened during the approval process. Please familiarize yourself with their lore. When we review your application, we look for evidence you have read the lore as well as explanations for:

  • How your character obtained the ability, if applicable
  • How they cope with the drawbacks of the ability
  • How the ability has affected their lives

Remember, all Animagi, Metamorphmagi, and Werewolves are required by law to register their status. Although you do not have to register your character, there may be IC consequences if they are caught unregistered, ranging from severe fines to imprisonment in Azkaban. Characters with any of these three abilities must copy & paste the appropriate form into their profile and fill it out.

Characters with Senior/Leadership Positions

In some cases, you might not receive the job that you apply for. Specifically, department heads and other leadership positions will require enough experience (determined by character age & history) in order to be appointed to the title. Additionally, employees typically are not promoted to senior level until they've spent around eight years on the job, give or take depending on the prestige of the position.

Another note regarding applying for leadership positions: we encourage our players to apply for leadership positions whenever they feel inspired to create a character that might fit one! However, as these characters have power and influence over IC actions and events, it is expected that players who apply for them have a strong and thorough understanding of both IC and OOC rules. In some cases, the position may not be granted immediately and players may be asked that their characters work ICly towards those positions. Applications for leadership positions will be reviewed with greater scrutiny than others.

APPLICATION REJECTIONS

Because the edits needed for a particular app can vary from minor details to major overhauls, we do not have a set number of edits we will ask for before outright rejecting an application. Applications are most commonly rejected for the following reasons:

    Not following the Getting Started guide or the instructions listed in this thread.

    Clearly not reading the site's essential introductory documents, all listed in the Visitor's Entrance: Important Docs forum.

    Major mismatch between the character's history and Potterverse canon. This includes creating OCs with significant roles in canon characters' lives (ex: best friends of James or Lily Potter, long lost children, secret spouses, etc.)

    Major mismatch between the character and the site's culture.

    Characters with histories of rape, abuse, triggery backstories, or sociopathic tendencies should be rare. Their histories will be screened more stringently for the consequences of their affliction, logical coherence, and tact.
