Trick or Treating!

11:30 pm - Hello

It seems Zonkos has stocked up on some trick-or-treating sacks. The man at the counter told me that kids can ask other people for some candy with them. He said to make sure you're polite when you ask though! People don't have to give you candy you know...

Also, I heard some people give out fruit....:\

Here are the other house's layouts.

By an almost unanmouse vote by the Admins (almost in the sense that the 4 who voted agreed).

The winner is...


Maybe I should tell you the prize first...


All member's of the house that wins will receive this:
For those of you who don't know what it is, it is a Prophecy like in HP5.

Now... must admit that we knew all along who was going to win the contest, because that Prophecy foresaw who was going to win...


With out too much further ado...

The winning house is...
Gryffindor :D

(You guys will get the item just as soon as I figure out how to give it to all of you.)

One year ago today, the renowned actor Richard Harris passed away. We most know Richard Harris in his role as Albus Dumbledore in the first 2 Harry Potter movies.
May he rest in peace.

Arguing With Teachers

1:33 am - rpgking2005

Students are asked to please stop arguing with teachers over grades, and threatening to report them to administrators. If the teacher feels that you got the grade you deserved, and its on an essay, its the teacher / assistants decision, and arguing, especially being incredibly unreasonable and rude, is not the way to go about it, and it needs to stop. Teachers have enough to do, they don't need to deal with rude students. Thank you.

In a common room that shall remain unnamed... I found a thread where the Halloween graphics of another house were posted and being discussed.
Perhaps that was no clear in the beginning... however it should be very clear now.

Any house caught doing that again might be disqualified (if it is just one person and the staff deletes then that's fine... but in this case the staff was joining in the conversation about it instead of deleting it, UNACCEPTABLE!)

A Indonesian flag will remain on the site at half staff till after the annivesary. A rememberance forum is also going to be set up.

The Quibbler and WW :: Change of Plans

4:12 pm - Swaroop

Many have accused us of snatching the opportunity to start Quibbler and WW.
So, we have decided to cancel all plans from our side and allow others to go for it. We would also love to have some friendly competetion
The graphics designers chosen can wish to help the Dp or leave us. Applications for the Quibbler & WW will be closed and sent to officially appointed people. Applications for The DP will be freshly opened.
More news about the DP will come up soon.
Thanks for all the co-operation and support,
Swaroop Hegde
Head Of The Daily Prophet

2. If people from one house are caught getting on other peoples accounts to steal ideas from the other house that person will find themselves in Azkaban for a full month.
3. You have to decorate 3 of the forums. The main common room, the boys dorm, and the girls dorm.
4. You can put as many decorations as you want, but if you have to scroll down for 5 minutes to get to the forum you probably won't win.
