Quiddtich Rulings  

Posted by Winnie

I hear that there are grumblings in the ranks, so I feel that a further explanation of the last two Quidditch rulings is in order.

Quidditch ~ Round One

There was a disagreement because Lydia had not seen the further direction to post an additional piece of information from the site. After some discussion I decided to keep the ruling with Rowena of Ravenclaw as winner, but to post the directions above the image during the next round. During round one the direction was there from the beginning and was posted at the same time as the image.

Quidditch ~ Round Two

The win was awarded to Waverly because the extra direction was not posted until after the Snitch had been reported as found by Waverly. That was completely my mistake, because I did not tell Bevin to post that direction until 30 seconds or so after she had posted the image. If the direction was posted at the same time as the image the win would have went to someone else and not Waverly unless she had followed the direction. Though, the direction was mistakenly posted at the bottom of the image the fact that it was becomes a moot point because of the speed at which the image was found.

I'm posting the timeline of this mornings events as proof of how it all went down.

9:20 I asked Bevin to hide snitch
9:20 She said yes
9:22 I sent the Snitch image to Bevin
9:24 She replied and said that she was post
9:26 She emailed me that it was posted
9:27 I posted the clue on the blog
9:31 Rowena found but posted on "Quidditch Clue- Round Two"
9:33 Waverly posted finding on correct blog posting (nothing about the cake was there yet)
9:33 Cassandra C. found but posted on wrong posting
9:33 and :07 seconds I asked Bevin to add the line about the cake
9:34 Bevin added the line
9:34 Clara Clearwater found and posted with the Lime Tea Cake

Round two's ruling stands.

Naginata = Bride of Nagini!

Okay MAYBE you can come to Slytherin... but you will have to have extra hazings to beat the gracious out of you!

does then when the headmistress say “You can expect the Snitch to be released in the same fashion as last time and there will definitely be instruction on posting something from the site where the Snitch is found as well as posting the direct location of the Snitch.” from the headmistress' post "Snitch Sighting" Post not apply??

I hear what you're saying, but since there weren't instructions with the image when it was first found, I would have assumed the instructions on the main blog to post the found url in the new post were the "extra instructions." Give up the arguing and let's congratulate Waverly for her speed and skill!

i will congradulate her for being the first to find it, but i'm just confussed as to if there are really any rules to quidditch or not, cause i thought that the headmistress had posted saying that there would be something extra from that page to be added to your finding post, because we griffs didnt know that last time and so werent looking for it, and so i figured that she posted that so that everyone would know that she would be adding directions to the snitch, so that no one would post without reading the directions... thats all, good job waverly for being the first to find it
