<h2>Patronus and memory</h2> <h3>Lyrebird (though he can’t yet cast one). His memory would probably be the Christmas party he threw in the Slytherin common room in his fifth year. He invited all three schools and it was an absolute blast, and even if he got in trouble for it afterwards, it was great fun at the time.</h3>
<h2>Dementor-induced memory</h2> <h3>Probably finding out that his parents died. He has adjusted quite well to their absence by now, taking it as a new chapter in his life to step up from, and the fact that it was a perfectly natural, just unfortunate, occurrence means he was able to move on in a fairly healthy way… But it will always be a huge loss, and nothing will match the emotions he felt when he first found out they were gone.</h3>
<h2>Mirror of Erised</h2> <h3>Himself on a big pile of money and jewels with an award saying something along the lines of ‘best hero ever’. He can be quite shallow in terms of wanting gold and riches (and once a thief, always a thief deep down), but he really does want to make a difference in the world. It’s just that he would display that to himself as a trophy or a prize of some sort, because he wants the recognition as much as the ‘good feeling’ that comes with it.</h3>

<b>Three Times Plastic Man Had a Family</b>
  • His birth parents <br> Luke and Elle O’Brien were wizards from not so pure bloodlines who had met in school and ended up happily married a few years later. Don’t get me wrong, they weren’t childhood sweethearts or anything, in fact they didn’t get on too well at school. But they kept bumping into each other in later life and eventually wore each other down until they ended up settled in a house with a son together with neither of them exactly remembering how they go there. They were good parents though, even if they weren’t quite sure how to handle the sudden metamorphmagus child they had ended up with – neither was aware of any family history of the ability so they didn’t even have anyone to go to for advice but the persevered anyway. Unfortunately, when Plaz was ten years old, the two of them got into an accident at work and sadly died, leaving their son with no known relatives to go to. There wasn’t even anything suspicious about their deaths, that’s just the way life goes sometimes. Plaz was old enough by then to know he would end up shuffled to some random carer, so chose to slink away quietly instead (a particularly easy thing to do when you can change your face to look like anyone) to find a second family instead.<p>
  • The League of Assassins <br> In his defence, Plaz didn’t know that the street gang he ended up living with after his parents died were connected to such a big criminal organisation. They just happened to be the first people he came across after leaving home. They weren’t particularly welcoming at first, but after a few demonstrations of his rare ability, this little group were more than happy to take him in. They clothed him and fed him and sheltered him, and just asked for his assistance on certain matters in return, none of which were particularly moral in nature. He started off acting as a distraction for guards and shopkeepers, while other members of the group stole behind their back. Sometimes he kept guard while they did something a little more violent too, though those cases were rare, and he learned quickly not to ask too many questions… but inevitably continued to anyway so they just stopped using him on those outings. Later, when he came home again in the summer, he found himself getting a bit more hands on with the crimes, though was finally starting to question whether this was what he wanted from his life. After all, he had a new family at school now who had shown him a different path for his life…<p>
  • Slytherin <br> They say your house at Hogwarts is like your family, and for Plaz that really was the case. While the gang he’d lived with for the year before he’d gone to school and who he went back to in the summer holidays appreciated his skills and saw him as a valuable asset, they weren’t exactly good for a laugh. Whereas, his house at school genuinely appreciated him… well, some of them did. He could be quite a polarising figure, and what was perceived as fun and interesting by some could be taken as obnoxious and irritating by others, but either way, he had real friends finally. These were the people who jokingly called him ‘Plastic Man’ because of his apparently plastic face, and the nickname caught on so quickly that it didn’t take long for him to be known as Plaz more than Patrick around the school. He enjoyed some of his lessons too, and definitely loved the social aspects of school life, particularly when the integration hit and he could travel to other places to meet new people and show off his skills all over again. People actually liked him, and they encouraged him to be better. And considering the path he has currently found himself on… he might be looking forward to a new family with the aurors.
<p>
<b>Three Times Plastic Man Was a Difficult Child</b>
  • Which Baby? <br> Like most metamorphmagi, Plaz could shift from practically the moment he was born, though it wasn’t always intentional until a little later in life. It was difficult enough for his parents to handle on an average day, but Plaz did have a habit of making it worse whenever he was given the opportunity to do so. One time when he was only still a baby, his parents were out with another couple and their child. The two babies were bathed together and Plaz chose that exact moment to shift into the perfect mirror of the other child beside him. He stayed like that for a good while causing both sets of parents to panic about which was which, before his hair finally turned bright red and the two were quickly whisked apart and dressed in very different outfits to avoid anything like that from happening again. <p>
  • The Stretch Armstrong incident <br> When Plaz was little, his father bought him a Stretch Armstrong doll (a plastic figure whose arms could be stretched to impressive lengths). Plaz loved this toy so much that one day he decided to try and emulate its stretchiness by using his metamorphmagus abilities to stretch his own arms as far as they would go. It took several hours of pleading from his parents before he eventually let his long noodle-like arms shrink back to an appropriate length again, though he did attempt to repeat the effort on future occasions as well.<p>
  • The Cat Cake <br> Though the O’Brien’s did not own a cat, there was one in the neighbourhood that came to visit every now and again. Plaz used to like feeding it at the back door, and would often let it into the house while he found it more food. One time he decided he was going to bake a cake for the cat, which involved gathering every ingredient the kitchen had to offer, sticking them in an overly large bowl… or five, and mixing them all together, before putting them into the oven. The horrific smell alerted his parents to what was happening, though when they arrived in the kitchen they found five perfectly beautiful looking cakes. Plaz’s early magic had always revolved around transfiguration and this was no different, and they were in the middle of congratulating their child for his skill when they realised they now had literally no food in the entire household, bar cat-food flavoured cakes…
<p>
<b>Three Times Plastic Man Got Detention</b>
  • The Sorting Hat <br> Perhaps a record for the fastest a new student ever got a detention at Hogwarts, Plaz was actually in trouble on his first evening. Apparently, you’re not supposed to antagonise the Sorting Hat when it’s mid-decision, and apparently doing so and causing a disruption in the hall through laughter is a detention-worthy offense. While the hat was deliberating on its choice of house for Plaz, the eleven-year-old shifted his face into something else entirely and asked the hat ‘how about now?’. While the hat explained that its decision was not appearance-based but came from what it could see in someone’s head, Plaz did the same trick again. And again. And again. The other students found it hilarious, but the hat did not, nor did the teacher waiting impatiently for the next child to be allowed to come forwards. After finally declaring ‘Slytherin’ as its answer, Plaz was told to report to said professor’s office as he made his way to his new table.<p>
  • The Tree Incident <br> In his fourth year of school, when Plaz was really getting into transfiguration as a subject, he decided to experiment with self-transfiguration. He had been explicitly told not to do so, but considered himself to be so very skilled in the subject that he would be perfectly able to do it despite what everyone else said. To be fair to Plaz, he was able to cast the initial spell, and did quite successfully turn himself into a tree in the middle of the Hogwarts grounds… Of course, as you may be aware, trees do not have hands, and so his wand dropped to the floor and he was unable to reverse the spell. In fact it wasn’t until a professor walked past a few minutes later and though that the bright red and yellow tree wearing giant sunglasses might not have usually been there, that he was transfigured back into himself. He does at least admit that he probably deserved the detention he got for that one.<p>
  • The Christmas Party <br> Though a lot of students did go home for Christmas, a decent proportion did stay across all three schools and each establishment put on its own small Christmas dinner for those who stayed behind. In Plaz’s opinion though, that wasn’t enough, and so on the fateful Christmas Eve of his fifth year, he decided to throw a huge party in the Slytherin common room. He managed to get the house elves in on the deal to provide food, and some of the older students had managed to sneak in alcohol from Hogsmeade through a secret passage. Needless to say, three schools-worth of students was too many to fit into one common room, even with only the limited numbers from the winter break, and the part soon got massively out of hand. His detention for this one involved having to clean up the mess by himself without magic, which he kept saying he had offered to do anyway but oh well.
<p>
<b>Three Times Plastic Man Broke the Law</b>
  • Gang Member <br> Though not totally aware of the significance of the gang he is actually a part of, Plaz is a member of a criminal group, and takes part in a decent number of their crimes. Association alone would be bad enough, but he is a clear part of some of their minor operations despite his young age. If this ever were to come out in court, it is likely his ignorance would play in his favour, but certainly not enough to make him innocent. Of course, now that he’s starting to think about getting away from them, and perhaps pursue a career in law and order as well, maybe he can use this connection to his advantage to redeem himself at least a little bit by helping the aurors take them down…<p>
  • Risking the Statue of Secrecy <br> Again, not exactly a one-time occurrence, but Plaz has always been a little too liberal with his metamorphmagus abilities, and hasn’t always checked the coast is completely clear before he’s changed his appearance. He’s never explicitly or intentionally done any sort of transfiguration in the presence of a muggle, but he has certainly looked very odd when a muggle has glanced in his direction, or changed his entire appearance far too quickly for someone to have simply swapped places with him in that time. Luckily muggles are usually more than willing to blame their own eyesight when they see something they can’t explain, so he hasn’t gotten in any serious trouble yet but he is definitely pushing his luck. <p>
  • Identity Theft/Impersonation <br> That might be quite a dramatic way to put it but yes, Plaz has pretended to be other people enough times to have faced the Ministry because of it. So far they have nearly all been harmless – pranks and imitations rather than anything malicious – but even so, the Ministry has made it clear they want to stamp out that behaviour before it becomes a habit… Of course, they don’t about the times when it wasn’t for such amusing uses, when the League used his metamorphmagus abilities to get what they wanted illegally…
<b>Three Times Plastic Man Wanted to Be an Auror</b>
  • A Plan Gone Wrong <br> Funnily enough, the first time the career path caught his attention was when he was almost on the wrong end of it. The gang he worked with were sneaky and planned things well, so the aurors very rarely caught up with them, but they weren’t infallible. And one time there was a very close call and Plaz only very narrowly avoided arrest. He was hidden by one of the other members of the gang, and so was able to watch as the aurors crashed into the scene to stop the crime in progress. They were so efficient, so powerful, and they were <i>doing the right thing</i>. Plaz had been swept into this life for lack of a better option (or potentially just from the laziness of not looking for one), and while he’d been at school he’d begun to question whether he was really on the right path. Seeing a group of young witches and wizards not only do some actual good int the world but look <i>so cool</i> doing it, had Plaz first setting his sights on joining their ranks one day. <p>
  • Career’s Day <br> With that idea already brewing in his head, he leapt at the chance to talk to a real live auror when one came into the school to give a talk. After bombarding a Mr Steve Rogers with every question he could think of (which mostly consisted of ‘do you have a badge’, ‘have you ever had to kill anyone’, ‘what’s the coolest crime you’ve stopped’ and various other five-year-old-esque queries), he finally took an off-hand comment along the lines of ‘good luck kid’ as a definite sign that an actual auror thought he was definitely good enough to become one himself. He buckled down after that, did all his research, and realised it took a decent set of grades and a clean record to get into the training in the first place, which… huh… might be a <i>slight</i> problem for him. <p>
  • Daydreaming <br> Alright so not exactly a single instance, but Plaz definitely spends a lot of his time these days daydreaming about being an auror and saving the whole world. Because stopping the odd bad guy here and there isn’t going to be enough for him, it’s going to have to be the whole world at some point or another… To be honest, his daydreams probably aren’t very realistic, but he’s excited about his future for the first time in his life, and he’s started to see the positive in things again – because despite his cheery and upbeat nature, he’s been missing something since his parents died. Not a focus or a goal, but just, a reason to believe the world is good. And the existence of the aurors and the opportunity to join them might just be that reason. So yes he’ll continue to fantasize about being awarded a prize for being the best auror in the history of ever, and he’ll brag about how useful his disguises will be whenever anyone risks talking to him about it. But you can’t begrudge him too much when the most positive thing in his life before this was when they were serving donuts for a dessert in the great hall (although that was always an <i>excellent</i> occasion as well).

<h1>CONNECTIONS</h1>
<b>BASICS:</b> His name is canon, as are both nicknames (Eel and Plastic Man/Plaz). His birthday is from the fact that his first appearance was in August 1941 in Police Comics #1, so 1st of August encompasses both of those (and I wanted to give him a summer birthday in general because of the constant sunglasses and the red and yellow colour scheme). I’ve made him younger than he is in canon so that I can play with the whole ‘trying to get into the aurors’ plot, which is supposed to mirror his desire to join the Justice League. His father’s name is canon, and I chose Elle for his mother to match his nickname of Eel since I like the idea that he chose that slightly odd alias as a reference to her.<p>
<b>THE LEAGUE OF ASSASSINS:</b> In both the shows and the comics, after his parents die at the age of 10, Patrick/Plaz joins a gang and takes up the alias ‘Eel’ and goes on to be a criminal until his accident that turns him into Plastic Man. On Bomb, he still joins a group like this, and goes back to them in the summer to continue his criminal ways (because a metamorphmagus will always be useful in crime) until the end of his school life when he decides he doesn’t want to do that anymore because he can really make a difference. I spoke to Cissa about this group he joins being a small section of the League of Assassins, focused on petty crime to support the greater League (i.e. stealing specifically important items in heists that just look like generic robberies). This means when he leaves them behind to join the aurors of all people (or attempt to anyway) there can be some interesting plots there.<p>
<b>SLYTHERIN:</b> Honestly, this is a bit of a ‘lack of a better option’ choice which to be honest works perfectly for Plastic Man anyway since in the Justice League he is often picked when there is no-one else left to do the job. He doesn’t have the academic focus or even really the creativity for Ravenclaw, he’s not particularly courageous (he’ll do brave things if he has to but will squeal about it the whole time) so isn’t a Gryffindor, and he cuts corners everywhere so can’t really be considered to be hard-working the majority of the time which means not Hufflepuff. He does have ambition, and he can come up with some quite cunning plans, so Slytherin is a pretty good choice, and I do like the whole ‘goes in a criminal comes out a hero’ thing for a Slytherin character because it flips the stereotype on its head.<p>
<b>METAMORPHMAGUS:</b> This seemed like the easiest way to incorporate Plastic Man’s superhero abilities, and for the most part it’s a fairly decent adaptation. Though in canon Plastic Man can change himself into quite literally anything, from a rat to a car to a bowl, metamorphmagi are the most talented transfigurers in the Harry Potter world, able to change their entire appearance, including being able to change to things outside of usual human appearance too (i.e. Tonks turning her mouth into a duck’s beak). He’s excellent at transfiguration as well, but this ability (and his habit of abusing it for humour’s sake as much as for practical use) is a good match to his powers in his canon universe. <br>
In canon he gains this power after a chemical accident as an adult which is when he leaves the crime world behind to become a hero. On Bomb I have changed this to once he finishes his education (and is therefore very well trained in transfiguration and the like), he makes this change. <p>
<b>WAND:</b> According to Pottermore, ebony is best suited for combative magic and transfiguration, and for a superhero with shapeshifting powers that seemed perfect. It is also “happiest in the hand of those with the courage to be themselves […] Frequently non-conformist, highly individual or comfortable with the status of outsider”. There’s also the fact that they have been used by both Death Eaters and Order of the Phoenix members to symbolise his change from criminal to hero, and that they are used by people who stick by their beliefs and cannot be swayed – though it takes Plaz a little while to get there, he does eventually firmly believe in doing the right thing to save the world, even if he has his own way of doing it.<br>
For core, again, thunderbird tail feathers are best for transfiguration, but they are also apparently difficult to master and can sometimes cast curses on their own. I like that as a parallel to how impulsive Plaz can be, and how he has sometimes morphed himself out of his disguise by so instinctively avoiding danger and blowing his cover in the process.<p>
<b>OTHER:</b> Lyrebirds can perfectly mimic everything from other animals to car alarms and phone ringtones, so it seemed a good choice for a patronus considering how in canon Plaz can shapeshift into <i>anything</i>. The specific canon version this Plastic Man is based on is the Justice League Action version, but there are references and connections to the comic and previous DC Animated Universe versions too. The cat cake for instance is from an episode of JLA, and there are a few other canon references scattered through him as well. I should also note since I play another DC character (Edward Nygma) that I am not aware of the two ever meeting and that I am certain that by playing both of them I would not be restricting myself from any sorts of plots – though I do have lots of ideas for potential threads with the other DC characters on site!

<div class="one">Activity Check</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">

On Bombarda we do passive activity checks every few months just to see who is still around, but this is all done by staff so you don't need to do anything for it. The details are below, but feel free to ask us questions about it too.
<p>
<i>This next section only applies to student characters:</i>
<p>
One extra thing for this activity check revolves around the end of the school year. Mid-July, the schools will break for summer, so we take this opportunity to update the <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=30'>character roster</a> and individual accounts/apps to reflect this change. Therefore <b>if you currently play a student character</b> we ask you to take this opportunity to <b>update their 'year' in both their mini profile and their app</b> so if they are currently a sixth year, change it to seventh year in both places. The characters that need to do this are listed below - post in this thread when you've done it and I'll remove the character's name from the list:
<p>
chantal warner
<p>
If your character is currently a seventh year, then they are graduating from school completely, congratulations! As well as updating their mini profile and app to reflect their change from school to worker, please <b>also post below with their <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=22'>occupation claim</a> and new member group</b>. Use the same code as you would in the claim itself, just post it here so it's all in one place, and if they don't have a job in mind for straight after school, you can just post 'unemployed' in the code and state the member group as 'OTHER'. Again, I'll delete the character's name from the list when this is done:
<p>
aodhan lynch raeya roth
<p>
Please do this in the next week so before the <b>8th of July</b>, or we'll start chasing you about it. If anyone wants to make any other changes to their characters (i.e. a job change) then also feel free to post below and we'll do that at the same time. Also if anyone wants to drop a character, let us know here too.
<p>
<center><div class="forumrules-small">THE SUMMARY</div>
<p>
<b>If a character has posted in the last month (since 1st June), that character is safe.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in the last month (since 1st June), that character is on a warning.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 1st May), but the member themselves have in a different account, that character is on a warning.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 1st May), and the member hasn't posted in a different account, that character will be archived.<p><hr><p>
All unsorted accounts made in the last month (since 1st June) will automatically be saved.<p>
All archived accounts that have had their app archived in the last month (since 1st June) will automatically be saved.<p>
Any account mentioned in a comment posted by a member below within a week (by 8th July) will be saved.<p>
All other unsorted and archived accounts will be deleted.<p>
</b></center>
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small">THE DETAILS</div>
<p>
The main reason we do activity checks, is to find out if anyone's ghosted from the site. It happens all the time - people get busy, the site didn't click with them, they don't have as much muse or time as they thought, and so on - so we just want to clear out accounts when this happens so any taken canons are available again for other people. Therefore the main thing we're looking for is active <i>members</i>. If you're an active member, but you haven't been posting with all your characters, you'll just get warnings for your inactive characters. If however, a member is inactive overall, so none of their accounts have been posted with, we'll assume they've left us for now and archive their things. If a member has an <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showforum=15'>absence</a> posted or has spoken directly to a staff member about an absence, their characters will not be archived (but will still receive warnings).
<p>
As always, if a character gets archived and you're still interested in playing them, just let staff know via the Moderation Thread and we'll move them straight back. If it was a recently made character, you'll just need to fill in claims again, but so long as nothing's been taken, you're fine to carry on playing them as before. If it's an older character, you'll need to update the app to reflect any big things that have happened to them on site, and staff will have to give it a quick read over again to make sure it fits with any rule or plot changes or bans that have been put in place since it was accepted the first time.
<p>
Warnings are just prompts to remind you to keep your characters active and get plotting with people. If you get two warnings in a row for a character, a (+1) will appear next to their name, and a staff member will send you a little prompt to make sure you're aware that this character is not active, and check that you still intend to play them. If you get three warnings in a row for a character, a (+2) will appear next to their name and there will start to be a few responses. If this happens to several of your accounts, we will ask you to drop down to one character if you have more than that. If it's just for one of your characters, we'll ask you to consider archiving this character. Both of these will be requests though, and if you think you can handle them or up your activity, we will happily let you try for another run. In both cases though, we will ask you to drop any VIP characters you have (these are important site characters so mostly just heads of the schools and of Ministry departments), and you will need to present a strong reason not to do this if you don't want to. Remember though, if all of your accounts go inactive for two months or more and we don't hear from you, they will be archived - so make sure you post in shippers or games or even just your member board so we know you're still around!
<p>
Feedback on this method for Activity Checks is always appreciated to please let Sigyn know any thoughts!

<div class="one">Suggest-a-Connection</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">

<p>
<b>Due to popular demand, we will be keeping the pop-up characters event open for the month of July. However we're also adding in a couple of games to try out to help you get the muse going and to spark ideas for possible new characters for the future or for this event.</b>
<p>


<p>
<center><div class="forumrules-small"><xx>The Game</xx></div>
<p>
Player 1 states a canon character (that is not currently taken on the <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=21'>canon list</a> (please try to suggest well-known characters from popular fandoms so it's not too niche for the next person)<br>
Player 2 then suggests some connections for this character for if they were going to be made on the site. This could be a way to change an event in their history to the magical world, it could be the wand or patronus you'd give them, it could be the career they would want or the classes they'd enjoy, anything at all that you might put into the 'connections' section of an app for this character. They then also state a new canon that Player 3 will then suggest a connection for and so on.
<p>
<i>As an example:<br>
PLAYER 1: Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story<br>
PLAYER 2: He could be a muggleborn who refuses to believe in magic no matter how much he sees of it, and his friend Woody is trying to convince him that it's real (YOU. ARE. A. <I>WIZARD</I>).<br>
Ash Ketchum from Pokemon.<br>
PLAYER 3: He could work in the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and be working on documenting every type of creature like Newt Scamander did (instead of filling a Pokedex).
<p>
... and so on.</i></center>
<p>
And our first canon is:
<p>
<b>Simba from The Lion King</b>
<p><p>
</div></div></div></div></center>[/dohtml]

<b>Due to popular demand, we will be keeping the pop-up characters event open for the month of July. However we're also adding in a couple of games to try out to help you get the muse going and to spark ideas for possible new characters for the future or for this event.</b>
<p>


<p>
<center><div class="forumrules-small"><xx>The Game</xx></div>
<p>
Player 1 gives a character description of some sorts in <b>10 words</b> exactly (this can be a list of traits, a summary sentence or two, anything you like, but it must be exactly 10 words). <br>
Player 2 then suggests a canon character who could fit that description and gives a brief reason as to why (the canon character has to be animated by the same usual Bomb rules, but can be a character that's already been made if you think they're the perfect fit). Player 2 then gives a new 10 word description that Player 3 then suggests for, and so on.
<p>
<i>As an example:<br>
PLAYER 1: A rebel without a cause who then finds his cause.<br>
PLAYER 2: Aladdin from Aladdin - he starts the film as a street rat with no real goal in life, but he meets Jasmine who gives him direction. <br>
Sweet innocent little girl forced to grow up too quickly.<br>
PLAYER 3: Cinderella from Cinderella - she was living a happy life as a child before her father died and she suddenly had to act the adult and take care of her step-sisters when she was forced to by her step-mother.
<p>
... and so on.</i></center>
<p>
I'll give the first description:
<p>
<b>A strong, silent type, who hides a soft heart within.</b>

<div class="forumrules-small">Staff Change</div>
<p>
After a great few months giving us loads of help with all of the aesthetic side of running Bombarda, Kyros is stepping down from her role as a Moderator on the site. She'll still be around as usual though, still writing with her multitude of characters, but the staff team will now consist of Sigyn and Dannie. She will also still be helping out with general site graphics and skins, but on an informal basis, just when she wants to, rather than under the pressures of staff work. Kyros would like to say that she loves everyone and appreciates their kindness, and we just want to say a huge thank you for everything she's done!
<p>
Bombarda has been very successful in the past when it was run by just two staff members, so for now we'll be keeping it as just Sigyn and Dannie to keep things simple. If we realise we need more help than this though, we might look for someone to fill the spot towards the end of summer, but if things continue the way they are, then two of us should be fine.
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>Ministry Category</xx></div>
<p>
Since a big portion of our site plot has shifted towards the Ministries, and since the opening of the new Ministry of Europe headquarters has now shaken up a lot for our characters, it seemed only right that the Ministry get a category of its own, just like each of the schools do. There will be four main boards like in all the others, but we welcome any suggestions for sub-boards that you may have - you can request those <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=2216'>here</a>. Any threads in the current Ministry of Europe board have been moved into the 'Local Ministries' board of the new category for simplicity's sake, since most were made before the official new building opened so it seems likely most belong there. If you know your thread should be somewhere else, just send Sigyn a message and she'll move it for you.
<p>
The Ministry of Europe itself is one large new building hidden somewhere in Europe, where the majority of Ministry workers are now based, and it then has various travel methods to the old Ministry buildings in each country. These are the Local Ministries which is what the fourth board represents, which now just consists of the head office (the Minister of Magic and a few of their closest staff) so all the other floors and departments in those old buildings are now out of use.
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small">Events</div>
<p>
Our new events for this month have just gone up! We're letting you try out temporary characters to get a feel for them in our <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=5278'>pop up character event</a>, and then you get a chance to test them out alongside our regular characters in our <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=5292'>thread roulette event</a> where you'll be paired up and given a prompt for a thread.
<p>
As for last month's event, we're going to leave the Discord Event server open for people to continue writing in however they like, and the feedback from this event has been very positive, so keep an eye out for further Discord events in the future too!
<p>
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>Anything Else</xx></div>
<p>
The <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=5216'>Buddy System</a> thread has been moved to Support Central where it will stay for further sign-ups and for our new members to see. Cissa won our graphics competition with her amazing <a href='https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/437706482730139651/447789852499378176/bannersubmission1.5.png'>skin banner</a> which will be featured in our Autumn 2018 skin.
<p>
Most of the Birthday Spotlight polls are now over, and the winners can be seen by clicking the trophy just below the site banner at the top of the skin. The only one still outstanding is the Favourite 'Other' Thread voting, which is at a tie right now. The two tied options are now competing in <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?act=ST&f=1&t=5295'>this tiebreaker poll</a> which closes on Sunday night. So you have the weekend to vote for your favourite and get it up there with the rest!
<p>
The only other thing to note is that we now have the Discord Widget added into the skin between the two cboxes in the sidebar, which should make it easy for any guests to see how active we are in there. That should be everything, but as always if you think we've missed anything or you just have questions, feel free to message Sigyn or Dannie and we'll do our best to help you out!
