It is important that our occupation history records are up-to-date. Please take a moment to double check that all of your characters are on them and their data accurate :)

Yeah, I guess I am late to suggest it, but I had this idea a few weeks ago and I though it was fun.
So, the stamp will be probably called "Good shopper" or something like that. In order to take that stamp you should have a thread in every Hogsmeade shop. I am not sure if it should with only one character or not, I guess this is up to you.

*shopaholic, at least in popular usage in the States.
I would totally support that, it sounds like a great idea. ^^
On the subject of stamps, has someone ever suggested pureblood / muggleborn / halfblood stamps, like we have for the different classes? Considering the current imbalance that could be a good incentive for people to branch out and play muggleborns and halfbloods instead of just purebloods. :]

Also, what about a stamp for people who pick up 'X' amount of wanted ad characters? \
As someone who has a shit ton of requests, I like this idea... but at the same time I think it needs to be developped further to safeguard against people taking them and then not being active. We already have Forever Home for one wanted character - perhaps to have X number reach that number of posts (I think it's 75)?
Shopaholic - Definitely something I'm going to tuck away for when I make the next group of stamps come out.
Blood status - It actually has been suggested before, but I turned it down. The game doesn't have that big of an emphasis on it, as I'd much rather see an equal variety of classes rather than blood status. Blood status can sometimes have a lot to do with the way a person lives, but it's similar to race in that, deep down, they're just a person. Class has a much larger impact on their life which is why I chose to highlight that instead.
Adopter add on - While this is a good idea, we do already have an adopter stamp. I don't want people to have to pick up a bunch of characters that they don't have time for/don't have muse for and therefore, probably won't develop as much, in order to get one of the stamps. It's a guideline I've been using for the other stamps. This could also go for the blood status stamps. I want someone who only has one character to be perfectly able to collect as many stamps as someone who has, say, thirteen characters.
House stamps - Those have been suggested before, but I also turned them down. The reason could be taken from what was stated above as well. Someone who has one character should be able to get all of the stamps without having to make any more. Also, I think an all over Hogwarts stamp encompasses it better. That's one "occupation" as you can say, as is the "Ministry" "Hogsmeade", etc. I can't imagine having a stamp for each division of the Ministry, or each shop of Hogsmeade, etc.
I think I've addressed them all. I'm sorry to turn down so many suggestions at once, but I hope my reasoning makes sense. Keep those suggestions coming though, I don't mind them, and I'm all up for considering new ones! Just make sure they fit the things I mentioned above and you're golden. ;]
