If you are newly-Sorted and signing up for an account at the Roost, you must register using your full HOL name (first and last). No nicknames or abbreviations are allowed. Also, your account will not be approved until your name appears on my new students list or until I can confirm that you have indeed been Sorted into Ravenclaw. (I know everyone's excited and wanting to jump in to HOL life as soon as possible!)
Note #1: When the HOL database is down, I have no way to confirm Sorting, so folks who have recently registered, please be patient for a wee bit!
Note #2: Every now and then, the email notification system for new accounts decides to take a holiday. If you sign up following all the rules (full name, etc.), your account may be approved without any email being sent. Sorry for any inconvience!
