During this time, Hogsmeade will be open to social posts (off topic or HP related, whatever) by ALL members. There will be friending memes and social activities galore, plus TONS of points-earning activities.
Announcements and Change in Bonus Structure
Tentative Schedule of Events
Are you a member? If you can see the schedule, then yes, you're ready! Make sure you have the right permissions, because most activities will be f-locked, and you don't want to miss out on the excitement! Watch hogsmeadewkends or make sure to drop in this weekend, because this will be the only announcement made to the main comm.
Also, I'm attempting to put together a comprehensive FAQ for Hogsmeade, but with the 18 zillion other things to finish before Friday I don't think it will be done until after this Weekend, so if anyone has questions, please ask away. (Or if there's anything you would like to make sure is included in the FAQ.) =D
