"Find Me" and "Tag" type games...
1:25 am - Sloan
We all know how much you students have come to love the "Find Me" games and playing Hide and Seek from each other around the site. Unfortunately most of the time they simply become spam threads all over the site with people simply posting "post" or "found you" in them. We propose to allow you to play these fun games with a different twist.
Instead of students simply saying "post" or something unimaginative, why not create a Harry Potter type story or rp to go along with it. It could be something like a "continue the HP story" with the originator of the game setting the story up and each subsequent person adding a few lines to the story. It could also be done in rp form where each person goes around the castle within their character and rp's what they are doing. Say for example if you the chase leads them to the astronomy tower they would rp something about being in the astronomy tower and searching for something in the night sky.
We are trying to prevent spam while still allowing you to have fun and run the games you like.

I know I've been a bit absent for the past week or so due to work, and I have a lot of unanswered owls. I will get around to answering your owls on Thursday where I'm off work for a few days. Until then - I'm not ignoring your owls - I just haven't had the time to answer them.

Slytherin Staff has decided to hold a contest to make a christmas layout for the Common Room. As this forum is more often used the CR itself doesn't tend to get as decorated as this one.
See the Common Room for details on how to enter.

It's a bit lengthy so it's in the main tournament forum for everyone to see! I'm sure you've all been wondering what's going on with it.
Taking advantage of the random events
8:00 pm - Birgitte
We just expelled 3 people for taking advantage of the Christmas events.
I would like to make it very clear that we just went through a lot of work to reset the site so that things will be more fair to everybody, and we have been working a lot on the Christmas events. Then someone has to go and mess it up by taking advantage of the events and thereby messing up the economy again.
Anyone else found using an external program - or anything else to accumulate more events will be going the same way as these 3 people.
Interhouse Winter Holiday Scavenger Hunt
4:01 pm - Bosnimf
Hexians, here is your first chance to redeem your riches since the big Christmas Reset. Ravenclaw is hosting a huge event, so participate in the Interhouse Winter Holiday Scavenger Hunt! There are huge prizes to be won, so go to your Common Room for more information!
Note: Annie (Nayru) is the hostess of this event, if you have *any* questions regarding this event, please owl Nayru.
More information regarding the Scavenger Hunt will be posted in your Common Rooms later. So keep an eye out there on how to participate in this event!
December 2, 2005

All petfood have been moved into the Magical Menagerie and all pets have been moved into the Pet Emporium.
We also have some new healing potions - yellow and purple which will give you 5 and 10 healing points back. They are both sold in the Apothecary.

9:17 pm - Bosnimf
Currently there seem to be some users who have trouble logging in to the site, and getting a 'redirected' followed by a blank page error. This is being looked into and will hopefully be fixed as soon as possible. Just hang in there ;)
To answer all the questions about the christmas calendar
7:04 am - Birgitte
Those who were here last Christmas will know how this goes, but there are some that doesn't know. All through December up until Christmas there will be a new item every day. It will pop up as a random event now and then so everybody get's the same chance of getting the item of the day.
So you don't have to go anywhere in particular to find it - it will come to you :)
Welcome back :)
6:23 am - Birgitte
We are sorry that the downtime was a little longer than expected, but this has taken all day and we're a bit tired lol
We have taken the opportunity to fix a lot of stuff today. Some things you will notice - others you won't. The biggest change is that all inventories have been reset and you'll left with 1000 galleons. After the past 24 hours warzone of slashing and zapping eachother we have also made sure that your healthpoints are full again.
As said - you will see some changes around the site. Mainly in Diagon Alley where we have made some changes due to the new financial situation.
Other than that - December is here and it's time for the Christmas Calendar :o) Everyday you will be able to get a random event with the daily item. All old Christmas items can be bought in Fred's Holiday Store in Diagon Alley.
We request that you read the rules again - mainly rule #13 which has been edited and the brand new rule #19.
I would like to take this chance to thank you all for the past 24 hours. It's been amazing to see how well people have behaved and how much fun you guys have been having - despite of the reset. I hope we can continue in this spirit and all be able to enjoy the site.
