about the community

We've all heard of Hogwarts sorting communities. Isn't it time we had the same kind of fun over in Westeros? Well thanks to community founders cyshobbitlass, deeplyunhip, and honest_illusion, we can do exactly that.

In this community, you'll be able to find out which major Westeros house best fits your personality after filling out an application. That's only the beginning. After being "sorted", you will be able to join your House's community (as well as the general community and various other sub-communities) and work on winning the Game of Thrones.

Your moderators are misstopia (Lord Commander), missyquill (Lannister), rebel (Lannister),jesatria (Martell), alenky_cveto4ek (Stark), muku_muku (Stark), mauvais_pli (Targaryen), ikel89 (Targaryen), kibethsbark (Tully), moryssa (Tully), moderntrickster (Tully), hamsterwoman (Tyrell) and sephystabbity (Tyrell).

rules and application

Be sure to check out the Westeros Sorting FAQ if you have questions!

1. You must be 16 years of age or older to join this community due to the nature of the series.

2. This community was created specifically for fans of the book series, and so applicants need to have read at least through A Feast for Crows to join. We recommend you have finished A Dance with Dragons, too, since spoilers run rampant here. We aren't trying to be exclusive, just making sure members are able to accurately answer the book related questions and sort other members. If you haven't read the books yet, you really should; they're awesome. ;)

3. When filling out the application, please be as thorough as possible. It will be quite difficult to sort you if you do not give us enough information about yourself. Writing too much is simply not possible! The more the better!

Also, please be honest. "Pushing" for a certain house is a pet peeve of the mods here and if we feel that you are doing this (or if other voters feel this way), you will be asked to re-apply. In this case, you can re-apply as often/whenever you would like to.

Please avoid making major changes in your application after posting it. If you do, be prepared to inform your sorters.

Last but not the least, plagiarism is also strictly forbidden.

4. Please please capitalize your house name and put it in brackets in the subject line when voting, e.g. [TULLY]. If you are using a Livejournal style that does not show comment subject lines, please bold it in addition and put it at the top of your comment, i.e. [TULLY]. This makes it easier for us mods to keep track of your house points. ;) You do earn points by sorting.

Please bold your votes. Not all of the houses are represented here. As of this moment, you may vote someone as a member of House Lannister, Martell, Stark, Targaryen, Tully, or Tyrell. House Frey is currently not an available option since, c'mon - basically anyone would be insulted to end up there. Baratheon and Arryn are not included at the moment due to the fact that they lack defining characteristics, and Greyjoy has been disbanded as of Game Ten. Anyway, this gives you six Houses to choose from as of Game Ten :)

If you are applying, you may not argue with the votes you receive, through comments or anything. This can easily be perceived as pushing, so we have had problems with this and would like to avoid them in the future.

You may also give someone No Vote if you feel that they have not elaborated enough, or if you feel that they have been pushy or dishonest in their application.

Please elaborate as much as possible when voting. People will often be more interested in your reasoning than in your actual vote.

You will be officially sorted into a house when sorting closes on Thursday of the week that your application is released. Assuming, of course, you have read and followed all the rules ;P

If you are wondering why your application isn't posted yet, please keep in mind that we only release a maximum of seven applications a week.

5. Please put the words "win or die" in the Subject, to show us that you've read the rules.

6. This is more than just a stamping community (don't get me wrong, though - we love stamping communities!). Much like the popular HP sorting communities, you'll be able to join a House community after you've been sorted. From there, you'll be able to participate in all sorts of activities (in various subcommunities) in order to win points for your house. The House with the most points for a designated period will be the winner of the "Game of Thrones". If you'd like to get more involved, you are also free to apply to be a member of the Night's Watch, the mod community. We'll take as much assistance as we can get and no worries - you can easily be a member of a House as well as member of the Night's Watch.

7. Promotion of other ASOIAF communities or other sorting communities is perfectly fine. Share the love. Please, please, please just upload the promo banners/stamp in your own servers. :) You may use this banner for promotion.

8. For questions, concerns, etc., please send a message to misstopia or post them here. We'll get back to you ASAP.

9. Most importantly, have fun! That's the real point here. ;) Keep the drama and the bashing and all that nasty stuff out of the comm please.

Also, if you are confused about how you should answer some of the questions on the application, please check this example for reference.

***IMPORTANT NOTE: When filling out the application, be sure to use HTML and NOT Richtext. Your application will be rejected from the queue if it has major coding errors. Thanks!***
