Dueling - Badgers vs. Snakes


8:19 pm - Ninja Kitten




It's the end of an era. Come welcome the duelists for the last matches of the season before some of them leave forever to wander off to greater things (courtesy of the brilliant teaching of Professor Gilderoy Lockhart) following their graduation. Even so, it's been a wonderful season filled with fire (quite literally), and the Dueling Master and his assistant look forward to welcoming back talented students with the start of the next school year (pyromaniacs need not apply). For now, though, it's not a time for sad farewells; there's nothing better than ending it all with a bang!

The final set of duels is between Thoughtful Hufflepuff and Ambitious Slytherin. Head over to the Great Hall to see which House will bring home the victory!



Magical Archives


2:34 pm - Ninja Kitten


The Magical Archivists would love for you to come out and play with us. Each month there will be two contests in two separate Harry Potter archives. So join us on a journey back to Harry's first year as we test you with some trivia/puzzles and then apparate on over to see if you've got what it takes to be a Dragon Breeder. Here are this month's opportunities:

IHC Team Applications


10:45 am - Ninja Kitten


With the Inter House Competition right around the corner each house has made the necessary preparations to choose who will represent their house. There are threads explaining what each of the six team contests are and when they will take place. In these threads you will also find out what you have to do in order to submit your name to potentially help your house claim eternal glory.

Unfortunately, there are limited spots on each of those teams. To help balance that out, and to ensure that as many people get to help their house in some way, we are also bringing back the participation contests and discussions that we held for the first time in the summer of 2013. Anyone who wishes to participate in these smaller contests may do so. Each discussion and contest has the possibility of earning 'Inter House Points' which are used to help determine the winner of the IHC. Team contests will earn points for both houses in the winning and losing teams. This means that after those six contests we will have two ties. The participation items are a BIG part of what will help determine the winner as they will help break those ties.

There is also the Final Task that awards both IHC points and individual prizes. Eight members of each house will earn the right to participate in the Final Task. Four of those people will be chosen by the house from those who were on one of the six teams. The other four will be chosen by IHC staff and House Admins from those who participate in the most participation contests and discussions.

So hop on over to your common room to find out how you can help your house! For easy access here are the links to each of the threads:

HUFFLEPUFF: IHC Thread

Donation Program Overhaul


12:46 am - John


The Donation Program has not received any major changes in over a year and a half. In this time frame, we collected extensive feedback and information from everyone. For a while, we have been redeveloping the entire program, and the new program is now here. This is the biggest overhaul to it since June of 2012.

Here are the most major changes/additions and things to know:
- The entire area has received a major design refresh with every single page updated, all information updated, and many brand new pages.
- Customized packages are now available. Choose as many or little features as you'd like and get a price based on what you choose.
- Packages 4-6 have been eliminated, and package 6 has been moved to Package 3 (with a major price reduction from $80 to $50).
- Upgrades are strictly one-time purchases now in order to simplify things. Some upgrades have been moved over to packages.
- There are several brand new features for the packages. Customize yours now or purchase Package 3 to get them all.
- Every package includes the ability to create 2 site-wide random events a month, as well as access to the brand-new Donation Portal. The Donation Portal is your one-stop spot for you to see your packages, use your features, and see other information such as donation item history.

Lastly, everything is now truly automated. No more waiting for anything to be activated or changed for you manually. The system does it all now, thus allowing you to enjoy your purchases the second your payment is processed.

We're sure there are many questions about the new program, so feel free to ask in this thread! Additional information and notes are also included in the first forum post.

Last Debate of the Season!


4:45 am - Jojo


And we have finally arrived to the last debate of the term, after many close calls between the participating Houses. This has been an intense season and, this time, both Hufflepuff and Slytherin will try to prove their worth and take home the last win of the 2014-2015 debate season. Head to the Magical Theories forum to watch these two teams debate the following topic:

Hufflepuff vs. Slytherin: Skillfulness as a wizard was not a significant contributing factor to Harry's defeat of Voldemort.

They are the celebrated authors of popular fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and Cinderella, that have all been adapted into high-grossing movies.

If such a thought has crossed your mind, now is your chance to rework a famous fairy tale to your liking.

The answer you've all been waiting for...


6:58 pm - Ninja Kitten


That's right folks! The IHC is back once again. After a two year break we are bringing back the interhouse events as well as the participation contests. This year's IHC pits the Slytherpuffs against the Gryffinclaws! Are you up for the challenge?

For those too new to know what an IHC is, IHC stands for Inter House Competition. We pair the houses up, who then form two full teams to compete in six events. IHC points are given to the winning and losing teams. During this time we also run smaller contests for those not on the teams to participate in and help their house earn more IHC points. Then, in the Final Task, we break up-- back into our own separate houses to try and grab that eternal glory for our house alone!

Please watch your house common rooms for more information on how to sign up for teams. Another homepage announcement will be given once we are certain all those threads have gone up. There are a few changes in store for this IHC, we hope to see you all there!

Hufflepuff Watch Thread: Badgers

The Quibbler - May 2015


11:08 am - picklebuddy7


The Quibbler staff is feeling quite... despicable this month. With the school year coming to a close, what better way to celebrate than by taking a walk on the dark side? But before we begin, let me ask you: Are you a villain, or are you a minion? Choose wisely, my friends. If you have questions or comments, please owl Misti or Allie. HappyVillain-y reading!

While Filch is away...


1:00 am - Jaessa



While Filch was finally convinced to take a break, the Caretakers feverishly went to work fixing up the many interior areas of Hogwarts. They dusted off some old threads, and spiffied up a few spaces with some new ones. And have you seen the new Student Hangout image map? It will take you to most of the major interior Hogwarts forums. Why don't you join us in the Student Hangout and go out exploring? I hear rumors of fun contests and chat threads can be found!
