Dorms, Trunks, & Invites

Posted by HPfanextrm on August 13, 2022 - 12:00 am

Last week, two new minor features arrived for dorms that we wanted to be sure you didn't miss:

We hope these interactions are less likely to occur unintentionally; however, the friction when switching dorms remained higher than we liked: it would still require you to leave your current one before being invited to another, resulting in an empty trunk yet again.

That's why, from today, you can now send invites to users already in a dorm. If you're on the recieving end, the updated dorm invites page will explain what will occur should you choose to accept: you will join the new dorm, leave your previous one at the same time, and bring your trunk and all of its compartments with you.

Please note that if you are a dorm owner with roommates and intend to switch dorms, you must transfer ownership to another roommate from your dorm's settings page before you can accept a new dorm invite. If you are the only member of your dorm, there is no need, and your previous dorm will be closed on your way out.

The house elves will ensure that your trunk's contents remain secure in transit, and we hope it's easier than ever to find your next roommate.
