I was going to hold this announcement back and do a big one at once, but I'm going to put these out there now.

Each community has a Minimod incharge of them. The list is under the cut, but I also made you a lovely organisational diagram to go with it:

Organisational Chart. PDF.

Minimod responsibilitiesCollapse )

What does this mean? It means that if you have a problem with one of those communities then you should contact the minimod, but CC Steph and I in as well (although it's not strictly necessary).

I've also made you guys a flow chart that I'm going to link to in the userinfo! It's for helping people figure out who it is they need to contact!

Hey y'all! Jessi just kind of vaguely pimped my new obsession in her troll-warning post in the platform, and then told me I could post a pimp-it advertisement in the main community, so I thought I'd give it a whirl! <3


sortinghat_rp . sortinghat_logs . iseeyourcrack . shooc_up
. APPLICATION // TAKEN CHARACTERS // HOLDS // RULES // CHARACTER REQUEST // CLASS LISTS // PREFECTS AND QUIDDITCH .

Your average pan-fandom, AU!RP, sortinghat_rp takes characters from all walks of life and thrusts them into the living, breathing world of J.K Rowling's Harry Potter. A genre of endless possibilities, from drama to crack or angst to horror, players warp their character's canon to become a member of the ever exclusive Hogwarts, school of witchcraft and wizardry. Set in reality's time-period, the backdrop is the late 1960's; long before the birth of Harry Potter and prior to characters such as James, Lily, and Remus attending Hogwarts. Voldemort is beginning his first rise to power and thickening his forces, making the ominous feeling beginning to surround the wizarding world hard to ignore. Who will your character be in the midst of this? Student characters can range from first years to sevenths, or professors to teaching-assistants. All we ask from you is your presence and creativity.

Will your character be a Ravenclaw or a Hufflepuff? Will they teach Defense Against the Dark Arts or Herbology? That's all up to your portrayal and of course the choice made and stated from the Sorting Hat.




I play Justin Law from Soul Eater and Joker from Kuroshitsuji, but they welcome any fandom, anime or tv or whathaveyou (House is in charge of a class called "Pre-Mediwizard Training" for instance, lol). SO YEAH, COME APPLY! This game is currently my obsession, and I love it. <3

And I don't mind betaing applications for anyone who wants it, either, so just let me know if you need someone or have questions or anything. :D And before you ask, no, they're not affiliated with us in any way, so no points involved; just creativity! I'm just there to have fun lol. XD

Hey everyone! This is Alicia of Gryffindor, for those who don't know ^.^ A new term is around the corner, and that means new icons! Thank y'all so much for voting on my set[s]! I am so glad y'all like them! You can find your Officials Icons for Term XVI in a post in my personal journal here: Term XVI Officials Icons.

Sas/Steph/anyone else who notices mistakes or something I may have left out, just let me know! Also, I made 2 variations of the Quidditch icons, because I couldn't decide what looked better XD

Please make you sure y'all save these & upload them to your own server. Thanks!

Hi again!

I know I'm being very wordy again, just lots of things have reached their final decisions this evening!

zestyzorra approached us explaining that she would like an appeal but having been such a long standing member she didn't feel, and we agreed, that she could get a fair appeal and other circumstances.

Previously this has happened with older members and we have simply moved them.

Instead with 6 mods now (2 main mods, 4 mini mods) we agreed that we would feel best if we carried out an appeal between us for special cases. We carried it out like a regular appeal and waited for the 6 of us to discuss and a majority to come to a decision.

Following this I would like to announce that she has been resorted into Ravenclaw. She will tie up a few loose ends within her previous house and move over.

There will also be some clarification of rules for sorting, resorting and appealing at the beginning of next term.

I'm going to keep the comments here screened if anyone would like to say anything. There's also the option of emailing hih.officials@gmail.com which will now reach all 6 of us.

Thanks,
Sas & the Modding Team!

So, it's quite possible I've said conflicting things because my head hasn't really been in this.

Points are due by the...

Monday 4th January 2010 5pm GMT

.

<.< That means that last week ending on that Sunday counts. It's optional for officials to include it though, or rather. They can chose to, or not to, if they choose not to just hand in both sets of points for the week ending the 10th.

Voting manager doesn't have to drop applications, it's her choice. It's a lovely chilled out world in inter-term week.

Questions, etc, comment here.
 
 
 
27 December 2009 @ 09:08 pm
Hi guys!

Before I announce the officials I want to say a couple of things.

Firstly, if there were any out-of-house votes for a prefect position they were excluded. If someone had more than two positions the rest were given to the next person.

The Ravenclaw HI mod position voting will go up shortly.

And thus, the officials positions!

Read more...Collapse )

Generally they'll get power about the 3rd, or 1st, roughly, maybe. Depends when the old officials wrap up.

Results should be up tomorrow or the day after, we've got to check through all the votes, etc, and make sure people are within their officials limits!

Chamber of Secrets, bringing houses together, right? Well why limit it to just the people on our teams. Post here to talk about your favorite activities, most challenging ones, and just whatever.

As an added bonus, with Free Dobby going on, this gives us all a place to chat amongst ourselves so that we do not all seem like a bunch of idiots trying to create reasons to talk to our Lucius' (well...not as big of idiots...cause lets face it, who could look more like an idiot than this guy:)

Officials Applications need to be in by 19th. Probably Midnight UTC. But, y'know.

We're still missing apps for the following positions:

Hufflepuff Prefect
Debate Leader
Hogwarts Icons - Ravenclaw
Order Mod
Daily Prophet

You need to have been sorted on or before the 3rd of November this year.

Apply!
 
 
 
15 December 2009 @ 01:36 am

Reminder. Officials applications are supposed to be anonymous. So saying, 'Being XXX mod last term...' is a no-no. Also, telling people, 'I've applied for so and so' unless you're a re-running mod is a no-no too.

Proof reading and editing every application is a real pain. So if you guys could edit them to make them more anonymous. Thank you!




Although. I could get the minions minimods to help, show them what to look out for, huh.
 
 
12 December 2009 @ 03:58 pm

Officials Applications are up!



I'd like to remind all officials that if they'd like to keep their positions they will need to fill out a new application and reapply. It might also be worth informing your communities if you plan to run again for your position.

People wanting to apply with need to have been sorted on or before the 3rd of November 2009.

Applications will be open until 19th December with voting going up shortly after. There may be delays due to Christmas.

Any questions, feel free to ask!

Ok so, guys! Hi.

I mentioned a small announcement that we'd make before the end of term, and here it is:

Starting next term, there will be a small change in the mod department.

First off, I want to say that I love being mod of Hogwarts is Home (most of the time ;) ) and really, I'm not going anywhere, and I'm pretty sure Steph shares that sentiment.

However, my life's all over the place now, and Steph and I can't be on all the time. HiH is a large community and we want to make sure there's someone there all of the time to handle problems.

We put a lot of thought into finding people to help us and we decided that we'd take on four people as mini-mod types, one from each house.

Now, I want to make this clear, these people aren't here primarily as representatives of their houses, or to give their house a voice and rule its members; that's what Prefects are for. They're here to help us run the community, and there's a person from each house to give a different perspective on each issue. These people were chosen because they've shown they can be impartial and that even though they love their houses, they can put the needs of the community as a whole first and foremost before the needs of their house specifically.

So, if someone's sitting here thinking, 'why didn't they ask me' the answer is most likely you guys love your houses to an amazing degree and we need you in the houses, egging them on and motivating them to win the cup! :) Being a mod, the community has to come before your house.

We spoke about this and all agreed on a team of people who could work together, had proven themselves at running parts of the community previously and were up for the challenge!

Now, they're going to be learning the ropes for the rest of this term, and then fully getting into it with the beginning of the next term. This is a chance for us all to have a fresh start, and I'd really like some of you to think about that as we go into the new Term.

A rough idea of what they'll be up to:
Each community will have a minimod and a mod responsible for it, with the idea that someone can always be reached when there's a problem. The common rooms will stay with Steph & I for the moment. You might see questions answered or tasks done by one of them instead of us, and when there's an issue that affects the community then we'll all attempt to sit and discuss it together. They'll also work with all of us to try and address the community's needs.

So, without further ado! Your new minimods:

beckella of Gryffindor
xfortytwo of Hufflepuff
et_tu_lj of Ravenclaw
nathaniel_hp of Slytherin

I hope you all welcome them to their new positions, feel free to ask any questions here, I'll keep the comments screened if you'd like, and unscreen any congrats, etc, ones :)

Your Mods,
Sas & Steph

Hey guys,

Now this is really getting quite stupid. It's one person, it's one post. I don't care what you all think it represents, just, get over yourselves.

People should vote how they see the post, and they can vote whatever the hell they want (depending on the rules, for example, and I'd like to remind you all here of what exactly the votes are:

Use the Muggle vote if -- AND ONLY IF -- you feel the applicant is pushing for a specific house. If you don't feel comfortable voting for someone because the application is too short, or because you cannot confidently place the applicant in a specific house, this warrants a No Vote.

4. Do NOT use Muggle Votes or No Votes for any other reasons! Do not 'No Vote' for grammatical errors or incorrect coding. Do not 'No Vote' for House-Bashing either - that is what the Muggle vote is for. Read, vote.

If you honestly think she deserves one of those, then go ahead, you think she should be Claw or Puff or whatever? Go for it. As long as it's what you think. Don't let yourselves get pressured.

If you're worried about the votes being unscreened, don't. We're going to keep them screened and we're going to give your prefects just a list of who voted.

Now, if you'd like to tell me about someone trying to get you to vote a certain way by pm-ing you? You come tell me. Comments to this are screened and will be handled with the utmost confidence.

So yes, thank you all! After the lovely quiet period we've just had, lets all be sensible, it's one application. Seriously.

You don't have to be a healer or healer-in-training to enter here before December 14th at 11:59 pm. Don't make me beg.

Where are the votes you used to bring?
Just one week before the deadline
Forty points and knuts so sublime!
Join the few who've had their say
Go and place your votes today!

And here's another holiday favourite, The 12 Days of Christmas:

It's the last week of voting and so far you've given me:
Three Claws so clever,
Two Snakes a slitherin',
One Loyal Puff
And a Gryffindor so very lonely!

Swayed by my off-key ministrations? Go vote at hih_animagus before it is too late!
 
 
 
09 December 2009 @ 03:32 pm
So. It struck me some of you may not know what goes on about here!

Well, I'm sure you've all figured out that we compete for the house cup here at hogwartsishome, just like they do in the books. Except a year is a very long time to compete for one thing, especially when so many people come and go in that time, so we run on a School Year of 4 months, which we call a 'Term'.

At the end of each month you'll see totals saying how far each house has come points wise, you get knuts deposited and there's an activity list posted. If you're not on at least one of those lists each term then you're at risk of getting cut from the comm, but that's ok, if you come back we'll let you straight back in!

Anyway, at the end of the four months a lot of other things happen!

1. Officials Icons
You may have noticed all the officials have snazzy matching icons? Well these are the results of a contest held at the end of each term. Most officials are better than me at using them, but they're supposed to give you a heads up when you're dealing with someone 'official' or a member is acting in their modly roles.

2. Officials!
At the end of every four month, all officials with the exception of the main mods, have to reapply for their mod positions. The applications are open to everyone and if we get more than the required number of applicants for a role, we open voting to the community as a whole. This is so one officials don't get stale, or lazy XD It makes them think up new ideas to win you all over in the applications! To be an official you need to have been here for at least two months.

3. Layout Contest
When a house wins the house cup in the books, Dumbledore decks out the Great Hall in the colours of their houses, and that's exactly what we do! When we know who the winner is we hold a layout contest for someone to come up with a layout for hogwartsishome in the colours of the winning house!

4. Phew, what else??
I don't think there's anything else! You probably all know about the end of month things, but if there's anything unclear, feel free to come and ask me, your prefects, your housemates, anyone! We're all happy to answer any sensible questions you might have :)

Officials Icontest & Officials applications will go up soon. We've got a small announcement before the officials applications go up this time that I'm just trying to confirm a few things for.

ETA: 5. HiH Awards
I forget these ones, they're not an official thing but come the end of term a member usually asks if they can do them and we say, 'yes!'. So, basically it's things such as 'favourite badger', 'person who embodies Ravenclaw', 'best cheerleading house', 'award for services to capslock'. But there are tons more, and I think they change every year from what I recall. Possibly lotrangel17 did it last term, but I think that's because noone else volunteered and she wanted to see it done? Anyway, I'll check with her and if she wants to, she can do it, if not, volunteers?

    School of Wizardry

    It's like Mafia Wars and those other apps where you have to do tasks and get people to join your "order." You can chose to be a dark haired boy (Harry?) red haired boy (Ron?) or a dark curly haired girl (Hermione?) in the beginning and then you get to go do all these quests and duels and such.

    It's really cute so I thought I'd share it with you all! :]

    WELCOME! COME ONE COME ALL!



    It's not actually my Deathday, as some of you may know, but I have been putting together an excellent party in celebration of the upcoming holiday season, and everyone comes to associate my parties with my Deathday since that is when I most often hold them. Many Hogwarts students and staff have already received their invitations, so you may see some familiar faces among the crowd.

    I hear it is a holiday weekend across the pond, so maybe we have some witches and wizards from America visiting. You are welcome as well!

    Item #2) Points due by 5pm GMT on Tuesday 1st December

    For anyone not sure, this means that weekly things, like sorting, Hicons, etc, end on the previous sunday, as the HiH week ends on a Sunday.

    Make sure you've got all the activities that you need in the system before the day you're going to submit them.

    Also, I tend not to approve activities for the following month until that month is closer because of my filter settings. I'll start looking at them in a few days.

    Does anyone at hih use iCal format, so, stuff that's exported from calendar readers in .ics usually. Or really, does anyone use any online/phone/personal calendar type things to track things?

    Does anyone use digital/online/etc calendars?

    Hey guys,

    Sorry about this, I've been having some IRL issues recently, the brightside is they've left me with more time for HiH >.< (I know, I can't decide if it's a good thing either).

    Anyway, activities approved, sorting, etc, auto generated and submission dates changed for the current month.

    Knuts were deposited some weeks ago.

    Btw, any officials want their activities auto-generated? They have to occur regularly, and have nothing that needs approval, so WB/SQ/etc are out because of the prompts, but I'm sure there are a few out there.

    - sas x

    Hey, as it turns out I am one of the mods for the harrypotterbang (a Harry Potter Big Bang community accepting all fic types, characters, and pairings) and I would like to offer something to the NaNoWriMo participants here at HiH. If you are writing a Harry Potter fic then you are welcome to come sign up with it HERE and get art for your fic. Rough drafts are due November 20th but the way you guys are supposed to be doing it most of you are or will be well past the 15,000 word minimum. Only condition is if you are going to sign up be sure you will finish your fic before posting begins in January.

    (If you decide to sign up just include a note that I approved you for my co-mods to see)

    Also, Artist Sign Ups are still open and we might be depserate if we don't get some more artists!

    Funny things happen in the HouseUnity chat.

    One minute, ladybubblegum from Hufflepuff and I are talking about how bananas in smoothies and shakes tend to take over the flavor, being a very bossy fruit, and the next, we came up with Bananatrix, a cross between Bellatrix Lestrange, and a banana.

    Continuing the crazy convo, others joined in, like slightlymore of Gryffindor, and we came up with a few more!!

    * Happle Pieter (Harry Potter)
    * Dracorange (Draco Malfoy)
    * Sirius Blackberry (Sirius Black. We ran out of ideas)
    * Remcurrant (Remus Lupin. This was better than Remus Pumpkin)
    * Voldeprune (Voldemort)
    * Lemon Limegood (Luna Lovegood)
    * Snapefruit ( Severus Snape)
    * Strawmione (Hermione Granger)

    and ladybubblegum came up with Azkablender!

    Come join the fun sometime! =D

    All OC Hogwarts RP at speakinwhispers


    This rp takes place in the year 2006. It is 8 years after the war. The wizarding world has worked to rebuild and start anew. Hogwarts has a new headmistress and has welcomed two new members of staff to their ranks. Despite all the things that happened during the war the school remained open and the houses have grown more united in the following years. Things certainly have changed at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy.

    Please note that this is an OC RP, that means you will not under any circumstances be able to play a canon character, the only exception to that is members of staff at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardy. While we are not officially affiliated with hogwartsishome this RP was designed and made specifically for HIH members only.

    >> character app >> staff list >> lists of students


    We are currently looking for students and Hogwarts staff so feel free to apply for both. Staff can either apply to play one of the Canon teachers listed or apply for an open position with an OC character.
