The criminal activities were of the triggering sort.
My apologies if I came off as flippant about it.
I’m not sure what you’re trying to imply. Yes, a criminal is infamous.
I didn’t reblog this because I was still trying to justify why I deleted that quote. That issue is finished; the quote was deleted because people alerted us to the fact that seeing that person’s name was triggering. I was reblogging it to remind everyone that we don’t take quotes from non-famous people.
If you think quotes work for a house, please submit them.
Hi, we use Throw My Hands Up in the Air.
Thanks for making us aware of this. We did not have any idea of that when we made that quote.
I’m going to pull it down. I’ll put up another Hufflepuff quote in its place that will be posted very soon, although it will be posted in the wrong order.
My apologies about that, and about the quote.
Thanks for the suggestion. I’ve actually already asked my co-admin whether or not she thinks we should, but she’s on holiday and I’m waiting to hear back.
Also, because we maintain an order (Gryffindor - Hufflepuff - Ravenclaw - Slytherin) this only works up until we run out of one of the other houses.
I’m not sure what you mean…but if you’re talking about submitting, there’s a template on the submissions page that you can use to submit!
Thanks for letting us know! I’ll fix the tag now. :)
A couple of reasons.
Firstly, as far as we can tell, there is a higher limit to the number of characters available to a person in a fanmail rather than through the askbox. But we have to have a limit as to how long the quotes can be because we use a template to make it faster for us to make quotes. The right limit, as far as we can tell, is one askbox length.
Secondly, when this rule was originally set up, people had to go to the submissions page (unless they used missing e. or xKit) to submit through the askbox, which meant that they had to read the rules. Unfortunately, Tumblr has implemented an askbox directly from the dashboard, which makes it so that people no longer are forced to read the rules before submitting. Fanmail also doesn’t have to routed through a specific page before being sent, so that was the other part of that rule.
You may have noticed us reblogging the rules more often and this is why.
I’m still crossing my fingers that Tumblr changes it so we can turn off the “ask via dashboard” feature…
This blog runs on submissions from readers like you. So people’s own impressions of each house is what drives which quotes they submit for which house.
I don’t know that I would classify most of our Slytherin quotes as being evil. It’s worth remembering the ambitious nature of Slytherins, of course, but if you are looking to change the gist of the quotations that are made, my best suggestion to you is to submit!
Of course, what I need more than Slytherin submissions right now is Ravenclaw ones, but we do love all submissions.
Sorry, no. We don’t take quotes from personal accounts or from people who aren’t already in the public eye. You can read more about our reasons for that here.
That depends on what you mean by “this thing.” I’m assuming you mean the submissions box. There are rules on the submissions page.
