I give you THE DAILY PROPHET - VOLUME 7, ISSUE 1!
Several things before you click on that wee link for this week's Prophet.
1. My apologies for not having this up earlier. I've been working on it for HOURS now and intended to have it up around 7, but due to my HTML anality, it's going up now! Yay!
2. To keep from putting this off for ANOTHER week, I've mirrored last year's style. I hope you all enjoy!
3. I attempted to put as much in there as possible.
Lastly, PLEASE feel free to leave some feedback! If you don't wish to comment, there's an e-mail address at the bottom of this post that you can send your thoughts to! This was great fun and I can't wait to get next week's Prophet in order! XD

Our very own Mod and fellow Ravenclaw, nyreak gave birth to her first child, a daughter, on January 15th, 2007. Much speculation has been discussed as to the sorting of our newest Hogwartsian. *cough*Ravenclaw*cough* Congrats to Jaime and her husband, Ken, on their sweet baby girl! :)
Story continued on pages two and four.
The quarter yearly contest for a new HiH layout has come! Congrats to Slytherin for winning the cup last term! That means the term 7 layout needs to cater to their colors (silver and green).
The contest technically ended on the 14th, though our lovely mods may be persuaded to accept your entry! Need more? Check out the official post on page three.
January's Text Contest was posted by the lovely jellybellys. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: The contest will be to think of the most absurd name for book seven you possibly can. "Harry Potter and..." must start off the title, but anything after that is allowed, as long as it stays PG-13 and under.
The real title of the book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," can be included or parodied in the entry. Two entries per person is allowed, although you will only get points for one entry.
Head on over to page five for more information and to submit your entry! (Due by MIDNIGHT, Jan. 25th)
