I lost my house five points for wrong title in the Excerpts of Murtlap section. I'm sorry! Could you please tell me if there's a way to change it.

Sorry Akay, you're stuck on this one. Points are lost for rule breaking. The only way to "fix" it is to not do it again, and try to post helpful, thoughout discussions to try to earn points back.
EDIT: Thanks Rosie, dear - didn't really understand the whole question, I suppose.

When I submitted my story into the queue, it got rejected because of 'odd random breaks'. What does that mean, moddies?

Hi! I hope this hasn't been asked before, nothing came up when I searched, but if characters get drunk in one chapter of my story do I have to add a Substance Abuse warning? And if I do do I have to have a warning for the entire story? Or can I just mention it at the beginning of the chapter?
Thanks in advance.

Quick question, because I couldn't find an answer to this specific situation in the earlier threads - I'm writing a story where a character contemplates suicide, but whether or not he carries through with it is left unresolved at the end of the story, do I still need a suicide warning on there even though he doesn't necessarily act on the impulse? I'm assuming I probably do, but I thought I should check.
EDIT: Thanks, Beth, I figured that I probably would.

padfootsgirl1981 - Yes, you would need a Substance Abuse warning even if it happens only one time.
h vic - Yes, you would need a Suicide warning since it is up to the reader to decide whether the character actually did it or not.

Hi! I was thinking of starting an in-house challenge... am I allowed to do that?

James Jameson, you will need to contact your Head of House and Prefect about starting an in-house challenge. It is up to them whether or not you will be able to.
