Welcome to Tallygarunga, an original roleplay set in the Harry Potter universe. Set in present-day Australia, tensions are high between the Ministry of Magic and the only Ministry-run wizarding school in the country. Become like the other snooty private schools? Not a chance.

Originally established in August 2006, Tallygarunga prides itself on an inclusive and active community. Once part of the Tally family, always part of the Tally family. Whether you're here for the first time, the thousandth time, or returning after a long time---welcome home.

  4. Are you nerd enough?

    Are you nerd enough? Tally is currently looking for a couple of extra mods to help out around the site! We always prefer to recruit from within the existing member base, so if the following sounds like you, get yourself in gear and throw in an application! We're primarily looking for Engagement and Operations mods, but will consider Promotions if we get three excellent contenders.

  5. Term Three is ending soon!

    Attention, Students & Professors! Term Three is ending soon! Please finalise your class threads and ensure any applicable homework and/or house points adjustments are submitted by September 13, 2019. You can find a list of active classes by checking the Active Classes list. For more information about how classes are roleplayed at Tallygarunga, check out the How Classes Are Played and Studying at Tallygarunga threads.
  6. New buttons!

    Oh hey there! You might have noticed that the editor looks a little different! It's been given a little reorganisation, and a few extra shiny buttons (plus some old ones that have new icons). Let's check them out! Big header, small header Same function, just a different look. The BH and SH icons on the editor now apply the big/small header style to any text you want. These will then remain consistent with any thematic changes on the board, so you'll never have to worry about it looking weird after a skin change. Tag! You're it! Group threads got you down? Looking for an easy way to separate out who has been mentioned/should read that post? The tag box is here for you! The @ button will bring up a nice little box for you to insert your mentions: Tag @mentionsomeonehere And because you're using the mentions function, they'll also get a notification. Sweet! One-click group colour! Text that is bolded using the B button on the editor now has a colour applied after the post is processed. While a neat feature, it does mean that it's harder to apply your own colours. The colourful buttons on the editor will now apply text colour from the selected group, just hover over the button to see exactly which group you're clicking on. Or, you could be crazy and rainbow your text. You do you! Got ideas? Is there something else you'd like to see on the editor? Let me know! All ideas will be considered. <3
  7. Mousie's Bug Bashing Thread

    This should be fixed now. This is working as intended, I'll look at coding some buttons/shortcuts to have alt text colours if you like. Need to come back to this due to Firefox's hideous caching issues, but hopefully this is fixed. Same for the weird display on threads.
  8. Thirteen is lucky for some!

    Happy 13th birthday, Tally! Thirteen years and two days ago, Tallygarunga didn't exist. It seems weird to think that was ever the case. Tally has been such a big part of my life for so long it's hard to imagine life before that. Although we were out of action for a few years there, I still count August 6th as the "true" birthday of Tally. We might not have been all together, writing and doing as we do now---but the spirit never left. It sat, waited, and came back to life when the time was right. So we're celebrating the 13th anniversary of Tally's first launch with a new skin, and this here sentimental post from yours truly. None of this would ever be possible without each and every one of you, contributing to the community and being your amazing passionate and enthusiastic selves. I never wanted just a roleplay board, I wanted a community that looked after everyone in it. I wanted somewhere people could go, without being afraid that they would be mocked, pressured, or looked down on. And we've done that. They may have been my goals, but you are the people who make them happen. Thank you. Some notes on the new skin Hopefully you all like it! I always get nervous over major changes, especially skin releases. There will be some quirks that need to be fixed, and things that don't quite look how they should. If I could get your assistance in noting these down in my bug bashing thread, I would be most grateful. It hasn't been coded for mobile yet either, though most of it should work okay. Thanks again everyone, here's to many more years of Tally awesome!

  15. New Award Categories!

    Hey All! A quick update here. As some of you may have noticed, there are new award categories! School Superstar - For posts made in school-based forums Local Hero - For posts made in Narrie forums Melbourne Mogul - For posts made in Melbourne forums Frequent Flyer - For posts made in Elsewhere forums Class Champion - For posts made in threads tagged "Class" The Opener - For posts made in threads tagged "Open" that have less than five posts VIP - For posts made in threads tagged "Event" Chatterbox - For posts made in OOC areas of the board Each category has several levels. These would have been released earlier, but I was hoping to find a way to count back all the old posts that have already been made (I can't get it to do it, sorry D:). Also trying to configure it so that your player accounts are also awarded when your character accounts earn post points, giving you a cumulative total and awards based on all your characters. You will need to have the "Player" field filled in on your profile for this to work! There's a few more to come yet, but enjoy these! ❤️

  19. Changes to adoptable system

    Cause I've always gotta change something about! The adoptables section (Wanted Characters & NPCs) has been adjusted to better showcase the characters we have on offer. It's now split into three sections: Tally's Most Wanted Plot & Job Opportunities NPCs & Other Character Inspiration The major change is in the split between Most Wanted and NPCs & Other. Most Wanted is a shorter list, with four active listings allowed per player, for adoptable characters that have firm plots and are available to be adopted by brand new members to the community. NPCs & Other is a list of all other adoptable characters (or just NPC listings) that may be more vague, or have restrictions on who may adopt them. Plot & Job Opportunities is a new section for staff to list character types and ideas that we would like to see active on the board. Eg. if we wanted a particular position filled at the school, or a character with a certain personality trait for plot reasons, we would list it here. Existing characters that can match the requirements are also encouraged to express their interest for opportunities in this section. New Fields in Wanted Characters & NPCs Two new fields have been added to the listing template. Plot Points: This is a text-entry section to list any solid plot ideas and inspiration you have for the character. What goals you would like your character to achieve with the listed character, how they might interact with others, all that sort of thing. This section is required for a character to be listed in the Most Wanted section. Wanted For: This is a member-entry field to list any characters that the requested character is likely to roleplay with. It's expected that for Most Wanted characters, any character listed in this section will also be mentioned in Plot Points. It provides a quick link for people browsing the listings to see the profiles of the characters they might be writing with, and get a better feel for what is being requested. What about our current listings? The existing listings are fine as they are, and all have been left in the NPCs & Other section. If you wish to edit them and add information to the two new fields, that would be awesome! If not, that is entirely your choice. You may nominate the four listings you would like to have moved to the Most Wanted section by posting below, once you have edited the listing to include Plot Points and Wanted For sections. More information To find out more about the Wanted Characters & NPCs database, we've got a handy new document here:
