Section 1: The Positions

Chasers and Keepers
The Chasers and the Keeper are basically the most vital players. They are the ones who need to be the most active during a game. These are the players who will answer the Quaffle questions.

To begin a game, a Quaffle question will be presented only to the Chasers on both teams. The first answer is what counts, and the Chaser who posts first and has the correct answer will score 10 points. If the answer is incorrect, then no points are rewarded and the next question will go to the other team.
Once the first Quaffle question has been asked, the questions will then be asked in turn. This will allow the opposing team's Keeper to actively answer Quaffle questions.

For example, let's pretend Gryffindor and Slytherin are playing.
Quote:
Quaffle to Gryffindor: How many fouls can be made in Quidditch?
Now only the Gryffindor Chasers and the Slytherin Keeper can answer this question. If the Chaser(s) answer correctly, they gain 10 points for their team. But if the Keeper manages to answer the question first (and correctly), then the goal is blocked and no points will be handed out .

If the Chaser who answers first is wrong, no points will be given out. If the Keeper answers wrong, that means they were unable to block the goal and 10 points will be rewarded to the opposing team. The Chasers and Keepers cannot edit their posts or post their answers more than once.

The next question will then be asked to the other team, and the game follows the same pattern.


* * * * *


Beaters
The Beaters don't have too important of a role, but they are the ones who can deduct points from the opposing team. They answer the Bludger questions that are presented to both teams' Beaters.

Quote:
Bludger: Who holds the record for the fastest capture of the Snitch to date?

All of the Beaters can answer this. The Beater who answers first (and correctly) has thus hit the Bludger and 10 points will be deducted from the opposing team. If the first answer is incorrect, then no points are taken from either team. The Beaters cannot edit their post or post their answer more than once.

* * * * *


Seeker
The Seekers must be knowledgeable about HP and Quidditch. During the match, Snitch questions will be presented. These will be the more difficult questions.

Quote:
Snitch: Who was the first ever person to cross the Atlantic by broom?

The first Seeker to answer the question correctly will get a bit closer to catching the Snitch. After correctly answering three Snitch questions, the Seeker will finally catch the Snitch and the game is over, giving the Seeker's team an additional 150 points. If those 150 points are enough to give their team the lead, then their team will win the match. If the 150 points are not enough for their team to take the lead, then their team will lose the match (just like in the books). The Seekers cannot edit their posts, but they may post their answer more than once.

* * * * *


The Team
Each House Team will consist of seven players - a Seeker, a Keeper, three Chasers and two Beaters who are captained by a player chosen by the team's Head of House. Four additional reserve players will be selected and will serve as the first-choice substitues for a game.

Team rosters are approved by the Heads of Houses, the Headmaster/Headmistress and the Quidditch Official. It is the responsibility of the team captain to submit their respective team roster (including reserve players) to the listed individuals by the due date set by the Quidditch Official.

The team line-up consisting of at least 3 players and no more than 7, is due 30 minutes before the start time posted by the Quidditch Official for each session of the match. This roster must be posted in the Captains' Locker Room. Failure to post a roster 30 minutes after the set start-time of a match will result in a forfeit.


All teams must field at least three players for each session of a match. Those players must be one Seeker, one Keeper, and one Chaser. Failure to field these three positions will result in a forfeit.

Position changes are not permitted once a session has started. Position changes, including substitutions, can only take place between sessions. At no time is a player to cover more than one position in a single session.

Any player who is placed in detention may not play in a game, even if they finish serving their detention during one of the game sessions.

* * * * *


Who Can Play
Every sorted student who participates in the school RP has the opportunity to tryout for their House team. This includes Prefects as well as the Head Boy and Head Girl who can tryout and have a chance to earn a spot on their respective House teams, but they cannot assume the position of Quidditch captain. If a prefect, the Head Boy or Head Girl is not on your team roster, then they may play as a substitute or as a substitute captain if the situation arises. Moderators and administrators can also play on a team, but only as substitutes (see "Substitutions" for further details).

* * * * *


Team Trials
As stated above, every sorted student who participates in the school RP has the opportunity to tryout for their House team. All Quidditch tryouts are open to those who sign up in their respective House tryout thread by the posted deadline set by each respective Quidditch captain.

All positions on a team are open at the start of the tryout period and past members do not yet have a spot on their respective House teams.

Those trying out for their House team must be active in at least two tryout sessions, and post (answer a question) more than five times in each session.

* * * * *


Player Eligibility
All sorted students who tryout for their respective House Quidditch teams are expected to be active in the school RP. This includes attending classes and earning points. This also applies to those who earn a spot on their respective House teams. Playing Quidditch is a privilege, and lack of activity in the school RP can result in a person losing that right for the current school term.

Section 2: The Game

Scoring
See 'Section 1: Positions' to read how points are scored

* * * * *

Forfeiture
If a team forfeits a game before the game even begins, the opposing team will receive 50 House Points.

If a team forfeits a game at the beginning of the second session, then the opposing team will receive 50 points plus the amount of points scored not to exceed 150 points total. (Justification: This is fair since 3 snitches have not been grabbed by either team).

A game is considered a forfeit if a team cannot field the 3 positions of Keeper, Seeker, and Chaser, or if a team roster isn't posted 30 minutes after the set start time of the game.

* * * * *


Substitutions
The four reserve players are the first-choice substitutes for a game. If a starter cannot play, you must use these players before selecting someone else from your House.

Moderators and administrators are the last choice substitutes for a team when no other members of the House can play. However, a moderator or administrator must be active in the school RP on a regular and consistent basis by participating in classes and/or turning in homework, as well as RPing their student character elsewhere in the school (at least 10 RP posts per week, not including posting announcements/homework/practice). If a moderator or administrator plays as a subsitute for their House team, they can only play in one game per term (each game is broken into 2 sessions).

Any substitute players who are not on your roster must be approved by the Quidditch Official or your Head of House prior to posting your roster in the Captain's Locker Room thread.

* * * * *


Matches
Each match will happen over two sessions, with each session lasting 2 to 3 hours. The game ends when one team has caught the Golden Snitch three times.

The winning teams from the first two games will play in the Quidditch Cup Championship Game. Winner of this game will be crowned Quidditch Cup Champions. The losing team will automatically claim second place. The Championship Game will be the last game of the Quidditch Season. Points will be rewarded to the team who wins the championship game (points scored plus the Snitch). The team that finishes in second place will receive 100 House Points or the amount of points they scored in the game (whichever is greater).

The losing teams from the first two games will play in the Quidditch Cup Consolation Game. Winner of this game will automatically claim third place. The Consolation Game will be played one week prior to the Championship Game. The winner of the consolation game will receive 75 House Points (regardless of how many points are scored minus the Snitch).

Please note that House Points are only rewarded for the Championship and Consolation Games. Points will not be rewarded for the other games.


During the match, the only people who should be in direct contact with the Quidditch official are the team captains or Administrators who are consulting with the official (see "Unsportsmanlike Conduct" for the penalty).

* * * * *

Quidditch Announcer
A Quidditch Announcer will be selected for each game and will post their commentary in the Stands thread. Applications will be accepted and a tryout session will occur. The announcer should understand the RP Quidditch and be familiar with basic Quidditch terms.

A staff member will always be present in the stands to provide a reaction after each comment is posted (makes it more canon). Please remember that the Quidditch Announcer is to announce the game.


Section 3: Responsibilities

Captains' Responsibilities
It is the duty and responsibility of each captain to hold tryouts (team trials) for their respective House teams. The tryouts will take place in each House's respective tryout thread. When the tryout period has ended, each captain will submit their roster consisting of 7 starters (including themselves) and 4 reserve players by the due date set by the Quidditch Official. This roster must be sent to BOTH the Quidditch Official and their Head of House. Only AFTER the Head of House gives the Quidditch Official their input on the roster will the team rosters be posted in each respective locker room.

It is the responsibility of each captain to hold regular practices and to make sure they can field a team on game day. Captains are also expected to be active in the school RPG. This includes attending classes and earning points through participation/homework.

It is the responsibility of each captain to attend their matches. If a captain is unable to attend a match session, it is their responsibility to contact the Quidditch Official in a PM prior to the game and provide the name of their substitute. A Prefect who is not on the team roster or a long time House team player or a moderator may fulfill this temporary role. The Quidditch Official will respond to the PM and then post the approved substitution in the Captains' Locker Room (if a captain fails to contact the official and is absent on the day of the match, the Quidditch Official will find an appropriate substitute for the match so that the team will not be penalized).

It is the responsibility of each captain to communicate with the Quidditch Official during a game if a situation arises (or anytime that you need assistance). Present your problem calmly and without accusing the official of favoritism or cheating. If that doesn't work, then explain your problem to your Head of House who is your advocate and will help you resolve any problems you have in the school, whether it be Quidditch or something else. The final person you can turn to is the Headmaster or Headmistress - they run the school for the site owner and have the power to reverse the official's ruling if it is in error. Please note that the Quidditch Official may ask for an administrator to rule on an answer and will keep the captains informed of the situation.

* * * * *


Practices
All team practices will be held in the practice pitch designated for each team and will be run by each team captain. Only the players on the approved roster may practice - this includes the four reserve players. Substitutes may practice once they have been approved by the Quidditch official or the Head of House.

* * * * *


Sportsmanship
All members on each team is expected to act with decorum both in the school RP and on the SS site. Any abuse or perceived unsportsmanlike conduct behavior by any member of a House (player or not) can result in House Point deduction, detention, removal from a team, loss of the match, and/or expulsion from the site.



Section 4: Penalites & Infractions

Editing
Editing your post is not allowed. If you are caught editing your answer to a question during a match, your team will have the value of the question deducted from the team total.

* * * * *


Invisibility Mode
All players must select the visible mode as their user option in their User Control Panel. If a player is seen by the official in the invisible mode once a game starts/during a game, it will result in a penalty. That penalty will be 10 points deducted from the team's match total. Please note that the site staff can "see" you in both the visible and invisible modes.

* * * * *


Failure to Meet the Line-Up Deadline
If a team fails to post their line-up by the set time, 10 points will be awarded to the opposing team. This is the only time a penalty is awarded directly to the opposing team. All other penalties are deducted from the offending team's match total.

* * * * *


Roster Change After the Deadline
If a team roster is changed after the deadline has passed and the game has not yet started, the offending team will suffer a 10 point penalty (which is better than a forfeit).

* * * * *


Answering a Question Out of Position
Blagging - any player other than the Seeker who answers the Snitch question AFTER one of the Seekers have posted an answer. Penalty is minus 5 points, regardless of which team's Seeker catches the Snitch.

Blurting - any player other than the Beater who answers a Bludger question. If the player answers it BEFORE a Beater, then the penalty is minus 10 points. If the player answers it AFTER a Beater, then the penalty is minus 5 points.

Bumphing - a Beater on either team who answers the Quaffle question. If the Beater answers FIRST, the penalty is minus 10 points. If the Quaffle was intended for their team, they lose possession and the other team gets the next question. If the Beater answers AFTER a Chaser has posted, then the penalty is minus 5 points.

Cobbing - a Chaser on the opposing team who answers out of turn AFTER their Keeper has answered but BEFORE the other team's Chaser(s) have posted. Penalty is minus 5 points.

Flacking - the Keeper answers out of turn (answers the Quaffle question intended for their own team). If the Keeper answers FIRST, the penalty is minus 10 points, and the next Quaffle question goes to the other team. If the Keeper answers AFTER their own Chaser has posted, then the penalty is minus 5 points.

Haversacking - a Chaser on the opposing team answers out of turn AFTER the other team's Chaser(s) have posted. Penalty is minus 5 points.

Quaffle-Pocking - a Chaser on the opposing team answers out of turn BEFORE the other team's Chaser(s) and their own team's Keeper have posted. Penalty is minus 10 and another question is asked to the team who was interfered with.

Snitchnip - any player other than the Seeker who answers the Snitch question BEFORE either Seeker. Penalty is one Snitch grab from the offending team and a new Snitch question will be asked. If the same person repeats the penalty during the course of the same game, they will be ejected from play.


* * * * *


Posting in the wrong locker room or practice pitch
5 House Points will be deducted for anyone who posts in the wrong locker room or practice pitch.

5 House Points will be deducted for anyone who is not on a House Team who posts in any of the locker rooms or practice pitches.

Repeat offenders will be placed in detention.

* * * * *


Posting in the Match Thread
If someone other than a player posts in the match thread, House points will be deducted. If the student is a member of one of the Houses playing, 5 points will be deducted from that team's match total. If the student is a member of one of the Houses not playing, then 5 House points will be deducted from their House Point total. Repeat offenders will be placed in detention.

* * * * *


Unsportsmanlike Conduct
Quidditch is taken seriously by many on the site, and its important that everyone behaves appropriately at all times (both on and off the site). It is canon to have rivalries in the school RP but please exercise caution if you're teasing someone else's character. If the teasing or trashtalk gets out of hand, those who are guilty of such behavior will be given an official warning (if it escalates after a warning is given, then the Headmaster or Headmistress will be consulted regarding further punishment). This also applies to behavior outside of the school RP.

Before any punishments are enforced, the Quidditch Official will consult with the Headmaster or Headmistress and will calmly explain the situation. It will be based on their discussion as to the type of punishment (if any) that may be enforced.

The most severe penalites can be forfeiting the match or having Quidditch suspended from the site for a period of time.



Section 5: Misc. Rules and Information

Rule Changes
If any of the rules are changed after the term begins, it is the responsibility of the Quidditch official to notify each team captain via PM and posting in all team locker rooms the rule change at least 72 hours before game time.
