Greetings & Salutations,


The Governors have heard many suggestions about how the site can be improved over the last couple of weeks. This included updates to the Mirror rules. As our Mirrors become ever more full with face claims, it follows logically that this also imposes some restrictions on new characters being made in the image their writer has seen them in. To alleviate this issue, the following changes are being made to the alumni reserve rules:


1. Following graduation, HOS Alumni who wish to reserve their face in all 3 countries must contact the Mirror.

2. If the Official HOS Alum character remains active, their face is reserved in all 3 countries.

3. Alumni faces can never be claimed in the country where the character graduated, provided they remain active.

-In order to be considered active, an alumnus must have logged in at last once in the last 6 months.

4. If an Alumni goes inactive, anyone may request the inactive character's face.

5. If an inactive Alumni returns, they have the right to reclaim their face by PMing the Mirror, but they must share the face if it has already been claimed by an active member before their return.

6. Alumni must be re-sorted as an adult BEFORE you send in your face.  Graduating 7th years who send it in early will not be added, and will have to send it in or bump the PM once they are in an adult masking.


We want to continue to honor the great achievement of graduating from Hogwarts while being mindful of new members to the site. Alumni members must now log in at least once in 6 months to continue reserving their face. However, if they fall inactive and someone else claims their face they may return and reclaim it with the caveat that the face is then shared with the active member.


In addition, we understand that sometimes the face you initially chose no longer suits your character. Previously, you could only change your face once at graduation or when the account changes hands. However, the rules will now be changed to allow everyone to change their face ONCE outside of these requirements for very good reason and at the discretion of the Mirror.


We hope you will enjoy these new freedoms and continue to make our site the gold standard in Harry Potter RPG.


Yours always,
