Thank you all for supporting The Daily Prophet this term! I hope you've enjoyed reading it as much as the writers enjoyed writing it.

    BANNER BY alwaysawkward



    Are you, or were you, a Harry Potter fan? Remember the days before and after a new book and movie came out and how you couldn't wait to share all your excitement and feels and theories with everyone and anyone? Well, it doesn't have to all be in the past. The Harry Potter fandom is still here! Maybe a little smaller, but still here. And it's time to celebrate it!

    So fill out the meme below (there are two versions: the short one and the tl;dr one. Pick whichever one makes you happiest!) and then talk to others, make friends or just relive the joy that is Harry Potter. Because that is what we are all here for.


    Long version

    So, I was thinking about my awesome HiH friends and wondered, "Hey, if we'd all really gone to Hogwarts, who would be in my year? Would I even be friends with my friends?!" (ANSWER: YES ALWAYS) so HEY:

    If you had really been a student at Hogwarts, which year would have been your first and which would have been your last? (If you turned 11 after July 31st, you have to wait A YEAR HAHA sob)

    This is pretty much gonna be "what year did you graduate from high school" but more fun ok

    I started the series in 2000 (7 months before I turned 11, so I got to wait for my owl!!1) and we all know what happened in 2007, so those are my Hogwarts years IN MY HEART/REAL LIFE. Buuuut based on my birthday my first year would have started in 2001 (NOVEMBER BDAY, CURSES) and my seventh ended in 2008. I would have missed every canon character and the war. And, geez, my fourth year at HiH will start in January.

    LET'S SEE IF WE CAN FIND YEARMATES :D which HiH members or canon characters would you have attended Hogwarts with?

    I had a list but that required CODING and that's effort so, no. Here's a Google doc!

    After 48 hours (8pm UTC Weds 1st June) I'm going to make the cut list from this and give it to the officials, after this time if you wish to rejoin, please use the rejoining links found in the profile.

    Thanks!

    Hi Guys!


    So, under the cut is a list of names of members of HiH. Anyone not on the list will be cut unless they respond here (they've got 24 hours!) So 17th Feb3pm UTC.

    If anyone wants to rejoin after that time, just post to the 'returning post' in your common rooms!

    Anyway, people would have been removed from the list for the following reasons:

    1. They haven't participated in any activities within the last 4 months (from yesterday's date on handed in points)
    2. They're not a member of hogwartsishome or their common room. You need to be a member of both to be part of HiH.

    Anyone sorted in the last few weeks is kept regardless.

    SO. To clarify: people on this list are staying!

    the listCollapse )

    If you're not on the list but you want to stay: comment here by 3pm UTC Feb 17th.

    ETA: if you comment, please make sure you're a member of your CR and hogwartsishome

    A Gryffindor is bold in love,
    His passions plain to see;
    For love's a grand adventure,
    Burning hot and bright for thee.

    A Hufflepuff is true love's knight,
    His dedication true.
    You know you'll always have his heart;
    It beats for only you.

    A Ravenclaw loves heart and mind,
    And wants to know your views.
    He'll keep you talking through the night,
    And cherish you, his muse.

    A Slytherin is silver tongued
    And focuses on pleasure;
    But if he gives his heart to you,
    You'll be his greatest treasure.

    Hello everybody!


    This is your friendly neighborhood House Unity Mod, (aka Luna Rose), bringing you some news, and an apology.

    First of all, look at our lovely new banner! Isn't it pretty?

    If you have noticed my absence for the past week, sorry about that! To make a long story short, I don't like being sick. *BLEH*

    Anyway, on with business. I planned on announcing this days ago, but I will do so now.

    There will be a new feature to House Unity called Amazing Stories of House Unity!

    What is this, you may ask? It will be a bi-monthly, (every other week), post, all about your stories of House Unity!



    Is your best friend in Slytherin? Just met somebody awesome from Hufflepuff? Wrote a song with a Ravenclaw? Lively character discussion with a Gryffindor? 

    We want to hear about it!! Let's show HiH that House Unity is alive and growing, and help encourage others to get out there and mingle!

    Please reply with you stories to this post. All stories must be under 250 words. You just might see them on Valentines Day!


    I know that only leaves you four days to submit, I am sorry, I wanted to post this earlier.

    ( This is a PERFECT way to do a shout out, or a heart felt love decloration to some of your HiH friends. *hint**hint* )


    Speaking of Valentine's Day, what to you all want to do? Feb. 15th gifting meme?

    Hey there, Olga here! Us girls over at House Unity chat decided we wanted to do something fun, so we're going to play an epic round of Marry, Shag or AK

    RULEZ:

    Someone posts a comment with three people (can be male, female, real or fictional, doesn't matter). Using the three people provided, you must decide which person you would marry, which you would have a one-night stand with, and which you would Avada Kedavra faster than a speeding Snitch. Respond with your answers.

    If you don't know who someone is, feel free to google their picture.

    p.s. Jackson Rathbone is off limits because he's mine and therefore unable to be AK'd. thanks:P
    -nicccc would also like to add that any AK'ing done of Regulus will result in death by lion rampage.

    I'll start:

    Hey Guys!

    Rules & FAQ for the community have been updated. Took out some bits that weren't relevant (why did we have a sorting guide in there?!) and clarified some of the remaining rules, also those that were posted as reminders can now be found in the rules. And it's not on loads of different pages any more. And, neater! With clicky things.

    In order to get a blanket shot of all HiH Officials and Club leaders and Ward leaders it's posted here.

    Could all Officials, Ward & Clubs Leaders comment here to the correct post saying they understand the rules and agree to follow them.



    Any questions can also go here. For regular community members the general rules are also in the userinfo.

    Thank guys! :)

    and those just watching for the commercials: [BTW, shiny layout is SHINY!]

    Universal Studios is rolling out a commercial for the new section of Islands of Adventure with a commercial for the new section.

    Apparently, DanRad is in the commercial, too!

    The article from the Orlando Sentinel can be found HERE... but I'm sure that someone out there has already put the full commercial online. Somewhere.

    Or not.


    Anyway, happy football watching to those of you watching!

    Hey, guys! I have two different surveys for you. They're not long. If you don't feel comfortable answering a question, you can skip it. My sister and her best friend are doing this for their high school Psych class and they need to interview at least 100 people so I'm helping them out. If you could answer at least one (text boxes provided for your convenience ;D), that would be forever shiny! :D And if I'm not allowed to post this, mods feel free to delete it [^_____^] ...just let me know so that I know not to do it again [x_____________x]

    PART 1:
    If you could, would you genetically enhance your baby (think of the movie Gattaca)? Why or why not?


    PART 2:
    You're a high school senior. Your parents are willing to pay however much it takes for you to get into the college you want and they have plenty of money to spare. You sent in an application to your dream college and did interviews and everything that was required. You did your best on all of them. However, you were rejected. Would you use the money to bribe your way in or not? Why or why not?


    I need the answers by this coming Sunday 9pm PST (time zone converter). I thank infinitely to everyone who responds.

    Comments are screened.

    Hello all!

    So, I had a massive rethink of the timezones page and I present to you:

    Sas' amazing timezone thing



    It tells you your current time, the current time in UTC.

    More importantly it now also lets you enter a time and date in UTC and see it in your timezone, or enter one in your timezone and see it in UTC.

    No more thinking is required!


    If you feel it didn't live up to my H1 hype, tell me what you think can change :)

    Just a quick check, did anyone get a different amount of knuts deposited into their account than can be found on the knuts sheet?

    I've got one inconsistency, and I'm sure there's a logical reason, but if there's more than one it'd really help me spot it because I could compare them.

    Just comment here with what you got and what you expected.

    Thanks!

    ETA: Ok, one problem down, the results on the knuts sheet are correct. The figure in 'your activity history' reads the dates from the 1st of last month until the 1st of this, however last month we didn't end until the 4th, therefore it's included the last set of December top sorters, etc.

    Still got a problem of a difference between what was deposited and what the knuts sheet said you should get.


    All problems sorted. Someone bought a book at the exact second I deposited the knuts.

    Hey, guys! My friend was going around Facebook and she found an event for Voldemort's Defeat Day (I'm still trying to get her to join the comm but she still has to join LiveJournal first; that lazy bum)! :D I even pimped our community XD Haha. Anyway, I was wondering if you guys wanted to celebrate it? I don't know if we already do this but it looked like fun [^___^] The event is an actual event that you go to. It's just something to unify the world. But yeah, just thought if you guys wanted to join, you could and maybe we could do something on HiH? I have no idea. Little random claw is being a little random.

    Points, Knuts & Activity.

    If there are any problems with points you'll need to contact the person who ran the activity.

    Remember: you can move an activity about within a month as much as you'd like, but if you want to go over the month boundary you need to inform me. And late points incur a penalty.

    Knuts will be deposited in ~24 hours, and that's roughly when Diagon will be updated too.

    DEPOSITING KNUTS NOW. Diagon's been udpated XD
