Here's the score. As Dumbledore, and self-appointed head of the Quidditch department I've set up what I call the Quidditch point system. Basically this is our way of deciding who wins each game. So, as perverse as this is going to seem to you all, it WILL BE KNOWN prior to the game who is going to win. The point of writing the game isn't to find out who's going to win the game it's to get points and work towards future victories. Points are given to each team (by me). These points fall into five categories:

Established Points -- Points that are synonymous with the house. Sorry, it's just a fact that Slytherin is known to by talented and ruthless on the field, Gryffindors are brave and thus willing to do crazy stunts, Ravenclaws are clever and better at coming up with battle plans.

Member Points -- Each player on the team adds points. This is to encourage team captains to do some recruiting.

Practice Points -- Teams get points for every practice they hold. (You don't actually have to write these practices, just schedule them and act like they happened)

Writing Points -- Writing points are given after every game. You get points after the games when the Mods critique the over all effect of the written game. There are three kinds of points that can be given here:

POSTER POINTS -- Each post done by a player on your team wins you a point.

STYLE POINTS -- Points based on writing style of each poster. (NOTE: this category is win or lose. While your team may lose the game they can still win in the style section, which means they have the most talented writers. If you win you get added points, if you lose you get negative points. This is to discourage the adding of players to a team just because you want member points. And if you have players who don't post at all in the game it's automatic negative points. This is the only section where you can get negative points.)

CREATIVITY POINTS-- This is for if you come up with a play or something the like that is particularly clever.


Spirit Points -- Every now and then Teachers will post "notices" asking you to show your spirit. Depending on the number of posts from your house members (quidditch players and spectators alike), you will be given points.

Then there's the SPECIAL BONUS POINT, given to teams with a seeker. (It's just easier to win with a seeker on your team, sorry)

So, as far as auditions go, they will be open ended. You can always add new members to the team (until the team is filled and then you can have alternates which can be used in case one character's player is ill or away from the computer at the time of the game).
