The Weekly Prophet  

Posted by Winnie in

Hello, everyone! First, this was formally called the Daily Prophet. Life is just too busy for me at the moment to make this a daily thing, but please do look for these from me at least on a weekly basis.

Posting on this Blog

You have all been sent an invitation to post on this blog. Please check your email boxes for the invite. The only thing that I ask is that you be mindful of not posting around the times when we will be hunting the Snitch and or when another announcement is expected from on of the Head Girls or activity organizers - Bevin or Agatha.

Posting To Your Blogs!
Every student must post on his or her blog weekly. If two full posting periods have gone by without a blog post (and without some type of communication between you and your Head Girl) you will be dropped from the swap! We understand that things happen, but if you choose not to communicate with anyone for two posting periods you will be dropped.

Posting periods run from 12:01 a.m. PST Sunday to 11:59 p.m. PST Saturday. If you post right at the witching hour - well, whose to say that you didn't post at all???

TipJoy

Some of you may have noticed the little Tip Jar in the sidebar. Many of you know that running a swap does incur it's own expenses for the organizers. We are extremely blessed in volunteers every term. No, I don't mean the people that offer donations for prizes, though we would not be able to put together the wonderful angel kits and prizes without you! I mean the ladies that offer to send (sometimes) multiple angel kits/prizes and spend lots of money in postage from their own pockets to get the packages in the mail. Our dear Wisteria, who has been my coordinator of angel packages and swap prizes for the last 3 swaps, has often paid for postage herself. So, to compensate and give a little back to Wisty and others that sacrifice I have added the tip jar. Whatever monies we do not use for Angel Kits wil
l go towards the prizes that are awarded for finding the Snitch, Best Kit, and other activities of Hogwarts.

To those of you who have already donated - Thank You!

Upcoming Activities

Dueling Club
The Dueling Club is a competitive mini-game that we play. If you have every played SmackDown then you'll understand the concept of this game that we play. For more information you can visit the information page on the HSKS site. The dates need to be updated, so please ignore those for now. Will we be making further announcements in a day or
two to let you know when the exact start date will be.

The first round of Quidditch begins in just a couple of weeks. Please note that the calendar in the sidebar will alert you to upcoming events.

First Opportunity for Points
This was previously an Early Points activity, but this time I chose to make this a requirement for after the swap started.

Winnie, what is the deadline for posting the logo to the sidebar?

Wow, that video is so cool! People are so talented! It makes me want the makers of that to do a whole movie.

Does it matter which logo we post?
