<div class="one">Activity Check</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">
This activity check is going to be a little bit different to the previous ones we've done, but it should hopefully make things easier on you as members!
The big difference this time is that this check is a passive one - you don't need to reply here to tell us anything, we'll go through your accounts for you. We still ask for the same activity requirements as before (one post a month per character), and we're continuing to accept 'site interaction' posts (e.g. shippers and games) as supposed to only roleplay posts. So if you are an active member already, this change shouldn't affect you at all. As always, if you have an absence up, or if you have contacted a staff member to let us know you're busy, your characters will not be archived during activity checks. And if your characters do get archived and you want to bring them back, just post in the Moderation Thread
or message a staff member and we will talk you through reactivating them.
<center><div class="forumrules-small">THE SUMMARY</div>
<b>If a character has posted in the last month (since 20th December), that character is safe.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in the last month (since 20th December), that character is on a warning.<p>
If a character hasn't posted in two months or more (since 20th November), 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 20th November), and the member hasn't posted in a different account, that character will be archived.
<div class="forumrules-small">THE DETAILS</div>
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 canons are available for other people. Therefore the main thing we're looking for, is active members. 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 you've left us for now and archive your things.
As always, if a character gets archived and you're still interested in playing them, just let staff know 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 changes or bans that have been put in place since it was accepted the first time.
Warnings are no big deal right now, they're just prompts to remind you to keep your characters active and get plotting with people. if you start mounting a few warnings though, we might talk to you about archiving that character, but we won't force you 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!
Since this is the first time we've done an Activity Check like this, feedback would be greatly appreciated! Love it, hate it, got some suggestions, or just couldn't care less, message Sigyn to let her know and we'll try our best to go with member majority for next time!

Hello Bombers! Happy 2018! I hope the year has started off well for you! We have a few things to get through today so I'll jump straight into the big stuff here.
<div class="forumrules-small">Goodbye M !</div>
As I'm sure most of you are aware by now, M is going to be leaving us. If you haven't seen here message yet, you can read it <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=4775'>here</a>. This has been a long time coming but we'll miss her just the same, and we wish her all the best in future endeavours. She still wants to keep in touch with everyone though, so we may see her on the Discord server for a while longer, but Bombarda's motto has always been 'real life comes first' and that applies to staff just a much as it does to members. Farewell M, and thank you for everything!
With the site losing one of its admins in the process, there'll be a little restructuring going on in the near future. You'll have to bear with us a bit while we work through things, and if you see anything odd or that doesn't make sense, please let us know a.s.a.p.! On that note, we may be asking for your help in terms of cleaning up the site and advertising too so if you can spare a little time for us then keep an eye out for a future update in this board on what we'll need.
While we're on the subject though, the staff team have rejiggled their duties a little to make sure everything is covered, so I'll give you a quick rundown of how that's going to work. <b>Sigyn</b> will remain the sole admin, and act as a general <b>overseer</b> for the site. She'll continue to run the day to day workings of Bombarda, including planning events, writing updates, organising the board and so on, as well as keeping an eye on the intricate workings of the site to make sure everything continues to run smoothly. <b>Kyros</b> will officially become our <b>aesthetics mod</b>, and will take over responsibility for the skin, the codes, and the general graphics of our site. She will also handle OTSs and site statistics from now on too. <b>Dannie</b> will be our <b>marketing mod</b> who will be in charge of advertising in all it's forms, as well as acting as treasurer for us, handling donations and funds in general for our premium status and cbox costs.
Any questions about any of these changes, feel free to come to Sig who will be happy to talk about it. Again, there may be a few bumps while we restructure but in the long run we have a great system here and a great staff team, so we should be running at full speed again in no time.
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>General Site Updates</xx></div>
The dreaded <b>activity check</b> is coming up again, but we've come up with a way to make it easier on you guys, so hopefully this shouldn't be stressful for anyone this time. It should be some time next week, or at least before the end of January, and as always, we ask for one post a month focused more on site interaction than specifically roleplay posts - we just want to make sure you're still here really! The rules will be a little different, and details will come out in due course, but if you're worried at all, just make sure you've posted somewhere on site in the last month and you'll be safe!
<b>OTSs</b> will be coming up soon as well in the next week or so, so get thinking about who you want to nominate for the categories. We've also just confirmed payment for our second year as a <b>premium</b> site, still running on the <b>donations</b> from our first surge so thank you again to everyone who donated! For details on ho to do this (as they have changed slightly recently) can be found <a href='http://bombardamaxima.jcink.net/index.php?showtopic=2618'>here</a>. Absolutely anything you can give is very appreciated, and actually if every member we have right now donated $3, we would be funded for another whole year.
There were a few projects M was slowly chipping away at, including emojis for the Discord server and donor frogs for people who have donated, which have of course been delayed in recent months due to personal situations. But the three of us aim to be picking these up as soon as possible and progressing with them ourselves now, so hopefully we should see them popping up in the next few weeks while we clear the backlog. If you remember us talking about anything in the past which you haven't seen happen yet, please do send Sig a message and we'll make sure we get onto it as soon as we can!
<div class="forumrules-small">EVENT PROGRESS</div>
The Ministry of Europe has been suspiciously quiet recently, which can only mean something big is happening. And sure enough, an announcement was just released to the public that the <b>Department of Law Enforcement</b> from each of the individual ministries is being swallowed up by the giant that is the quickly growing Ministry of Europe. This is going to bring about some <i>big changes</i>, but the details aren't being released just yet, which must be making people working in that department a little bit nervous... If you're intrigued, feel free to message Sigyn and she'll let you know what gossip she's picked up from the whispers floating around the Ministry...
Basically, there's another shake-up happening, but since the Department of Law Enforcement is one of the biggest, this may have consequences in character. if you're intrigued as to how it will effect your character, Sigyn can give further hints on what it coming in the next few weeks.
<div class="forumrules-small"><xx>ANYTHING ELSE?</xx></div>
With the reshuffle in progress, once we have ourselves sorted out, we're going to make a big push in advertising and just generally revitalise the sight because the new year is a perfect time to energise and get ourselves back on track. Staff are organised, fired up, and ready to go, and judging by the overwhelming welcome we gave to a guest yesterday, you guys are too! We're still one of the biggest sites in our genre, and we're definitely one of the most friendly, and our success is all down to you guys! We love you and couldn't do this without you, so a huge thank you to all of our members, old and new! You make Bombarda what it is, and I will be eternally grateful to you.
<div class="forumrules-small">Happy new year!<br> <xx>Sigyn !</xx></div>

So as some of you may know (because we've screamed about it a lot), me, M, Dannie and Kit are all meeting up for a week in Chicago for what we are lovingly referring to as Bomb Con!
As such, the four of us will probably be absent for most of the next week. We might have some time we're online together, maybe for Discord games and possibly the odd tag, but honestly we don't really know how busy we'll be so it seemed safer to put an absence up either way. If you need any of us, Discord is probably the best way to go (the other three will have data and I will have some plus wifi in the hotel), so still feel free to message us there of course, and any staff queries can be brought to us as usual. It's mostly just going to be posts and site things that end up a little bit late.
On that note, the January event (the internships that were set up in September) will likely be a few days delayed, but since you know most of the details already, feel free to start threads about it already, and just send me a link so I can move them into the correct board when it's up.
Other than that though, we will be back with lots of pictures and stories and hopefully exciting Bomb ideas in a weeks time!

<div class="one">The Muggle Markets</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">
After the overwhelming success of the Winter Markets that debuted last year in Champs Elysium, the newly formed Ministry of Europe was <i>very</i> keen to repeat the idea again this year. It brought people all across Europe, nay, all across the <i>world</i> together to share in this wonderful season together., and it's fair to say the Ministry that is slightly struggling to gain universal acceptance from the wizarding public at the moment, wanted to cash in on that warm fuzzy feeling to help build its reputation. But they saw another opportunity here as well, to take that idea further and win support from even more magical folk and show that this integrative system would bring about important and positive <i>change</i> within society.
How, you ask? Well think about it, what was one of the <i>most</i> talked about points during the election? Muggles! It came up at every opportunity, better integration with muggles. While some candidates were vying to remove the Statute of Secrecy all together, others at least agreed that things needed to change and improve. Well, in order to show that these words were heard, <b>this year's Winter Markets will be entirely focused on the integration of wizards and muggles alike</b>! That's right, this year the integration effort is being taken a step further, which should please those who supported this idea back when the election was at it's peak. And though the sceptics are outraged and shouting their complaints at a Ministry who is only willing to smile and wave back at them, they can at least cling to that thought that if this all crashes and burns as they're so sure it will, then people will finally see the error of their ways, and the world will finally settle into its happy segregation again...
Stepping aside from politics for the moment, <b>the event has been advertised across the world again</b>, leaflets appearing in the home of every wizarding family, the envelope containing vouchers, information, maps, and even an invite to the ever-so-eagerly-anticipated December Dance! But we'll get to that bit later. First off, the markets.
<div class="forumrules-small">THE MARKETS</div>
As the central part of last year's festivities, these were bound to return this year, but they have a unique new twist to them this time. As part of the celebration of muggles and their lifestyle, the moment you step through the invisible magic barrier onto the world famous shopping street, all magic <i>stops</i>. That;s right, while you're traversing the Winter Markets this year, you will be living the lifestyle of a muggle, as <b>all varieties of magic will fail to work while you are within the Winter Markets</b>. This of course mans no spells will work, but it also means potions will fail too, as will any of the little cosmetic things you don't usually tend to think about. Did you shave by magic this morning? Well that just got reversed, now you have stubble again. Put on you make-up by magic? Oops, that's disappeared too. Maybe the dress you're wearing was crafted together by magic. Oh dear well then that's just fallen apart too. This might explain why there are dressing rooms right by the entrance now, so people can go and fix these little things, and even helpers in them to assist those purebloods who are just so dependant on their magic, they need someone else to tie their tie for them.
Aside from that rather alarming change though, you'll notice the stalls are quite different too. Rather than being jam-packed with magical knickknacks of every variety, <b>all of the stalls hold entirely muggle items</b>. Of course, not all the sellers here seem to be <i>completely</i> sure about what it is they're selling, and if you take their word for it, you may walk away thinking that lovely tea cosy you bought is actually a hat, but they're trying at least. The food stalls aren't all that different to last year, though they do sell more meat pies than pumpkin pasties this time around, but the trinkets are all very muggle. As are the clothes on sale actually, if it turns out you came far too 'eccentrically' dressed for a muggle day out here today, and fancy a quick change over.
There is, however, a section of the market entirely dedicated to technomagic - this is, after all, the most successful sector of wizard and muggle integration in society at the moment. A lot of the items don't currently... work... what with magic being shut off but... well if you're interested in <i>looking</i> at some cool new gadgets, and buying them to then use properly later when you're out of the markets, then here is your chance to do so!
There's also a second part to the market, a small section cordoned off from the rest, with guards checking passersby as they cross between the entrance. This leads to a special set of stalls at the far end of Paris's muggle Christmas markets themselves, and is <b>an opportunity to actually brush elbow with the non-wizarding folk themselves</b>! I can almost hear the muggleborns of the world groaning now, but for purebloods this could potentially be quite exciting. Of course, those purebloods with rather elitist tendencies may be using this as a way to locate 'blood traitors' they should be hating from now on but... well... no-one in the Ministry of Europe really seemed to consider that part actually. They were just certain this would all run smoothly, which is why they have people stationed at the entrance to check over the wizards passing through. They'll check that they are wearing the right attire to blend in with the muggle crowd, that they own and know how to use the correct currency, and so on. There will also be a few stationed around the markets to stop any issues before they can arise - in fact, you might have noticed the muggles around here look a little... dazed anyway. Might be some kind of charm over the whole area, lowering their awareness factor a little bit so they don't notice anything suspicious. Or it might just be they've had to be obliviated so many times already it's leaving a bit of an impact...
<div class="forumrules-small">THE DECEMBER DANCE</div>
Held on the first full weekend before Christmas (<b>16th and 17th of December</b> this year), the December Dance is back again for a second year. As a reminder, this is <b>a two-night ball that witches and wizards across the globe of all backgrounds and ages are invited to attend</b>. The Saturday evening is a very formal function, requiring ball gowns and best behaviour, and involves classical dancing like you'd imagine for a ball. The Sunday evening event though, is much more laid back, with much more lax attire allowed and music ranging from popular wizard bands to old school muggle hits from across the globe.
Just like with the rest of the markets though, there is a twist to the dance this year: this time around, it's fancy dress. In keeping with the muggle theme, the Saturday night requires you to <b>dress up in your favourite period of muggle history</b>. You can interpret this however you like, but remember, this is a very formal occasion so you must be looking your best still. On the Sunday, the idea is to <b>dress up as your favourite muggle character from history or fiction</b>. Again, this is open to interpretation, and if you have any crazy or funny ideas, they will be welcomed at this more informal dance.
<i>The board for this part of the event will open for posting in on the 15th of December, half way through the month and just before the IC dates of the dance. So you can't post about being in this event until then. You are welcome to start working on outfits though, and there will be a thread in the new board when it opens where you can post them for all to see!</i>
<div class="forumrules-small">AN OOC NOTE</div>
The big thing to remember about this event is that <b>canonically, the wizarding world and the muggle world are <i>really segregated</i></b>. Think about the Quidditch World Cup and how they handled using that muggle farmer's field. Think about all the scandal of wizards running around in brightly coloured robs on the day Harry defeated Voldemort. Think about how confused Arthur Weasley is about rubber ducks! The Statute of Secrecy is very firmly upheld, and even muggleborns tend to slide their way into the wizarding world and not reemerge very often. If you play a pureblood, although quite honestly the same applies to most halfbloods, <b>living without magic for a day in these markets will probably come as a <i>complete</i> shock to your character</b>. And they won't get everything right! That's the fun of it really!
This is something we tend to take for granted as muggles ourselves - our world is very strange and foreign to wizards. So even those with the best of intentions will get things very wrong - again, think of Arthur Weasley. So this is an opportunity to really explore that. <b>Think of all the little things your character relies on magic for, and then think how they'd react to that being taken away.</b> Then consider things we as muggles find totally normal, and think about how your character would react. Unfortunately this 'blocking magic' effect isn't enough to override the issue with magic around technology, so electronic items still won't work here, but imagine how your character will react to the most mundane of things: like weird muggle cleaning supplies for example! Are they going to know what a toilet brush is by looking at one, or are they going to think that's a lovely gift for their significant other for Christmas? Really play around in the fact that for the majority of wizards this is all scary and new.
There's also the stigma of course - fraternising with muggles and enjoying muggle things is still seen as terrible by the vast majority of magical folk. And for good reason, considering most of them are from families that date back to the persecution of witches and wizards that brought about the Statute of Secrecy in the first place. The Ministry of Europe are trying to battle this attitude towards 'blood traitors', and this is a big step towards that, but it's another thing to consider in this event. Because these markets will make a lot of people very angry, and though it's likely the split between those enjoying the markets and those boycotting them is nearly 50/50 by this point, there's still going to be a lot of emotion floating around this whole thing - a lot more than the calm, happy, jovial markets of last year anyway.

<div class="one">Advent Calendar</div>
<div class="two"><div class="three"><div class="four">
<div class="forumrules-small">Welcome to our 2nd Annual Drabble Advent Calendar!</div>
A random word generator has created our prompts and a random number generator has assigned our days, so we’re officially ready to get going with the Advent Calendar! Generators aren’t always perfect though, so if you have a problem with the word or the date you’ve been given, just let me know a.s.a.p. and I will try to wiggle things around. Since we had exactly 25 sign-ups, I figured I’d just extend it one more day to the 25th so we could give everyone the number of days they wanted!
What will happen now then – on the date you have been assigned in the list below, please post a drabble of any length based on your given prompt using the template below before the end of the day. If you can’t post it before the end of the day, let an admin know as soon as you can, and we’ll pop a placeholder in for you.
We have a new rule this year though! Since several days were left empty with just their placeholders last year, the new rule is if three days after the placeholder is posted, a drabble has still not been added, that day is then up for grabs by anyone. Just let me know you’re taking it, and I can add your drabble into that day's post instead. I’ll put a note in the placeholder when a day is up for grabs. If the person who <i>was</i> assigned that day then comes back later with their drabble to add in, we’ll just have two for that day instead.
If you have any questions, just come talk to me, I’ll be happy to help. You don’t have to write your drabble on the day of course, just post it then, so by all means start thinking and writing from now! I’m super looking forward to what you guys come up with!
