Hello everybody. I would just like to let everyone know about the upcoming plans we have for this wiki. We plan to reopen term for all our great users on March 30th. Until then, we will be working to make this wiki more and more enjoyable for everyone, and we welcome help from anyone who wishes to. As part of our restructuring, we will also be working on improving the enjoyment of quidditch so we look forward to seeing a lot of participation there. Slytherin in particular is currently in need of a chaser. Windsword7Let the magic beginRead more >
For as long as I've been here, people have been asking for Quidditch. And why shouldn't they? Quidditch is an integral part of Hogwarts and if we are roleplaying it we definitely should have it. With the help of Bryans and Flame, I finally succeeded in creating a system that works, I set up games, and I even set clear scheduling for them. And now it seems that Quidditch is no longer of interest for the users here. I scheduled a match between Slytherin and Hufflepuff, it's been set to go for a week. And now over an hour has passed since it was supposed to start and 2 members from each team have bothered to show up. If people don't want to do Quidditch that is fine with me, I can delete the teams and the quidditch pitch and we can just go ba…Read more >
As I'm sure many of you have seen. Drastic changes have been undertaken on the wiki in this past week. From the departure of Head.Boy.Hog and the ended use of Xat to the suspension of money pouches and the creation of chat bubbles, we are definitely seeing a different wiki then the one we saw a week ago. Naturally there is some apprehension about this sudden change, and fear about what this sudden change will mean for the users. I want to assure all the users on this wiki that these changes are for the better and will make roleplaying on this wiki a much more enjoyable experience. I also want to adress the fear that members of our affiliate wiki The Camp Half-Blood have taken over this wiki. There is no truth to that rumor whatsoever. Thes…Read more >
Attention all noble users of this wiki! It is time to prove your loyalty! There is currently a vote being undertaken for the best wiki of 2011. The winner of it gets an automatic spotlight!

THE TIMINGS OF THE BCRAT/ADMIN/RB'S MEETING IS AT 6:PM EST, TONIGHT, AND AS MANY OF YOU AS POSSIBLE ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND. IF YOU CANNOT, PLEASE CONTACT A BCRAT.
THATS 6PM EST, 1 OCTOBER, 2011Read more >
Hello, it's soa here!
Speaking as department head for the Creative dept, I am proud to announce (thanks to a variety of my deputy, Weirdo Guy's efforts), We now have TWO NEW CLASSES!
A brief description of the class will be seen below.
Pink Magic is a branch of magic. It is a "good" type of magic, mainly used to mutual benefit and advantage. The Daily Prophet newspaper ran a segment on Pink Magic. I find that this makes it semi-canon, and so it sould cover magic for love, health, beauty, innocence, happiness, fertility. and femininity. Given this, it is somewhat the opposite of the Dark Arts.
I will hopefully be teaching this class, so come to me if you have any queries
PS:BOYS CAN TAKE THIS CLASS TOO, LOL

I am pleased to announce that the house tournament Beta, Is OFFICIALLY underway!
THE FIRST TASK WILL COMMENCE ON 24TH DECEMBER 2011.
I hope to see you there, bright and shiny!
Judges and Contestants will be contacted, and users can feel free to rp about the tasks as they wish in the comments. Also, Sophia del Rosá, will be taking bets!
AND MAY THE ODDS BE EVER IN YOUR FAVOUR!

This is another adminny blog from SoA, but I'll keep it informal. I'd like to start with a huge thakyou to everyone who played a role in the recent house tournament beta- depending on whether you were a champion, judge, even a sponsor! It was a success, the gamemaking was brilliant, and you all co-operated wonderfully. I assure you, our next tournament, which will be the first official tournament, will be taking place in the summer, dates will be revealed later! Again, thank you so much!
Onto the main focus of the blog. My upcoming project is to reconstruct and revamp the lessons. As we all know, this is a rp wiki about a school, therefore, in order to keep the roleplay as realisitic to the environment as possible, I have decided to…

Well, here we are. December 31, 2011. Yep, the year the the wiki was founded is concluding, and I feel that this is the perfect time for a good inspirational speech ;D.
So, can you believe it? Well yes, I can believe it - we're us :D. This wiki's lasted a year, take a month or two. A year! And I know I'm not the only one who's betting on us getting to a blog titled "As 2012 Concludes." Thanks to everyone who's ever contributed on this wiki, inactive or not. Let's keep giving it our all to make sure this wiki stays as strong as it is now, if not stronger! Let's keep making friends that we know are always there for us, even if we don't even know them. And of course, let's keep having fun roleplaying!
Whoa. That was one seriously freaking short …Read more >
Right, straight to the point. I've been inspecting some pages on this wiki, and some characters are really OP.
Some students have animagus forms and make spells, when they're in Fourth Year. That can't be allowed for a multitude of reasons which I won't bother to put here. It'll be in the Policy though (when it's modified)
Next, if you have a char (an auror or professor) who can make spells, don't go overboard and make a hundred and don't make a spell that can, for example, strangle a person. That's OP and god-modding.
Finally, characters can't be related to canon characters. It simply can't be allowed.
So please, if you have a char that breaks any of these rules, fix it. If you're unsure about anything contact an admin (not me lol)

Hello, everybody! As I'm sure many of you have noticed, all of the Quidditch teams have been cleared. Captains have been notified, but as there is probably some confusion, I'm going to answer some questions here with a short Q&A. If you have any additional questions, send me an owl or find me on chat, and I'll add them in here. Sincerely,
Because of inactivity, the teams have all been cleared to make way for active characters.
Previous members of the team have top pick for their spots on the teams, however, if they do not contact me or their Head of House, another user might get their position first.
There are several reasons.
- Because Quidditch will now actively involve gameplay, we need active users who will be able to participate.
Hello everyone, it's Mousetalon. For those of you who don't know me, I am an administrator on this site. I have been a part of the administrative team since late October and have been a member of this Wiki since last July.
When I first joined the Wiki, I took a long time before creating a character. I watched roleplays, looked around pages, read the policies, and asked questions before creating a character page. I didn't want to make a mistake and leave a bad first impression because let's face it- first impressions are VERY important.
Lately, a lot of our new users have gone right ahead and created character pages without reading our policies and getting sorted. As the one who has to leave comments on all of the pages, it gets frustrating and…Read more >
As many of you guys know, the USA government is drafting a bill. If it gets passed, wikia may never be the same or even exist any longer. At 12:00 AM EST, wikia will be blacking out some wikis. If you want that to happen to us, comment here on your thoughts. Should the bill be passed, wikia, wikipedia, wikimedia projects, youtube, twitter, facebook, and many more may be hurt or even discontinued. Wikia staff is doing all they can, and so am I. So, what exactly is this? (The following is quoted from Community Central)
While SOPA -- the bill in the US House of Representatives -- has gotten most of the attention, it's sister legislation, PIPA -- the bill in the US Senate -- represents a similar approach. These bills are driven by the content i…Read more >
This is a short proposal I've written up discussing a possible way to run duelling in an interesting,creative, and exciting, yet self contained manner.
First we need to compile a list of spells and their effects.
Example: Expelliarmus - Disarms your opponent,
Then, each person gets a certain number of spell slots (probably between 5 and 10) and chooses a spell to fit in each slot. You can pick and choose which you want before a battle but not during. These will act as your means of attack/defense or any other roles your spells may happen to fill. From there it's pretty simple there's an agreed upon number of turns nd then each person goes in order. However, instead of posting a long paragraph in which you totally incapacitate your enemy (In o…

Well, I was just thinking that maybe the wiki could be even more like Hogwarts as in having terms and enrollment periods. I was thinking that every few months is like a year in classes. Then after that period of time we would have an enrollment week setting down what classes and what extra curriculars the students wants to take. Instead, of them wanting to take every class and be swamped with homework, we could have them set in certain classes for that specific year. Then after enrollment we would send out supply list as Hogwarts actually does. Just saying I thought that'd maybew make the wiki better.Read more >
Remember: This is a purely In-Character blog. It in no way reflects how I feel, but expresses the motives of a certain characters aims and hopeful progress of one of my characters.
Join me, Lord Ormond, and live in a world pruned of Muggles, Mudbloods, and Blood Traitors alike. Live in a world in which it is pure, as we restore this place to the paradise it once was. Remove the muggles and the damage they have done to the Earth.
Come, as we step from behind the veil in which the muggles have dropped upon us to conceal us. Remove them from the world, my friends, and leave in a world of comfort. Where we wizards reign free. Where our magical abilities are liberated. Where we may
walk without the hazard of revealing ourselves.

This is basically a blog directed at the different Heads of Houses. The entire poin of this is to explain the new and more uniformed design that should be applied to Common Rooms.
- First of all, you should have the house crest at the top of the page.
- The Head of House should be listed.
- After, there should be a notice board in place. The notice board should contain announcements focusing on general school annuncements (ie. Openings in classes, a quidditch match coming up, etc.). Also, specific house announcements may be posted in this area.
- Next, should be a link to each dorm directing each student to the correct area to socialize with the people of their dorm
- Finally, a roleplay section should be included after all of the other items.

Hogwarts Roleplay Wiki:Updated Quidditch Rules
Hello everyone, Bryans here. I have some rather important information for you guys. In light of the upcoming Quidditch Season, which we hope will be even more exciting than the last, that we have some updates in the rules of the wonderful game. So, here goes:
Players must not stray over the boundary lines of the pitch, although they may fly as high as desired. The Quaffle must be surrendered to the opposition if any player leaves the boundary.
So, basically, in wiki terms, we have defined "out of the boundaries" as flying into the stands, or any place that isn't on the pitch.
"Time out" may be called at any time by the Captain of a team. Time out may be extended to one hour and a half minutes if a…

On behalf of the Battles Department, I present to you the Hogwarts Roleplay Wiki:Godmodding Standards. This is the basic foundation for the actions and reprocussions that are caused by Godmodding. Any user who has questions can either post them in the comments, or owl me. ThanksRead more >
Okay guys, in light of our new system I need every user to fill out one comment for each of their student characters. Please oblige, and be responsible about it. I'm trusting you not to spam. In the comment, please, post:

Announcement: Attention ALL Professors
Okay, I know you guys are tired of hearing from me in these blogs, this is [most likely] the last one, I promise (not really).
So, I really need all the Professors to listen up. It's crunch time. These are the last few days you have to get lessons up, have homework ready, be ready to grade, and have a system of keeping up with the students grades. We really need you guys to be on your A-Game for this entire term because we really need to know if this is gonna work, so make sure when make the correct conclusion. Please, I'm begging you right now. So, use your time wisely and be ready to work. This Friday .Read more >
ANNOUNCEMENT: Professors Needed
Hi everyone, Bryans here, again. In light of our new class system (UPDATE: it will now start on April 6), I decided to take a look at the employee roster. Unfortunately, I was really disappointed. We have a total of eight positions that are currently empty. Considering the amount of people in our user base, that is absolutely unacceptable. That number does not include the classes, which have now been deleted, such as: Muggle Videos, Muggle Arithmetic, and so on.
The eight positions that are open are:
Librarian, Healer, History of Magic, Divination, Arithmancy, and Apparition.
To apply, please contact Wind or myself. We need these positions filled guys!Read more >
Just a note reminding people, that just because there may be something that you don't personally perceive as wrong or inappropriate, does not mean that others see things the same as you. If something is said that may unintentionally hurt another wiki user, it is far easier to apologise, then to argue why you think you are right and they are wrong. In the hopes of upholding a friendly wiki where all are welcome, let's try and keep things pg and friendly.Read more >

So it's probably come to a few people's attention, that Madam Malkin's Robes for All Occasions, Quality Quidditch Supplies and Cranville Quincey's Magical Art Store are no longer being run by me (or anyone for that matter). At this point I have the role of bureaucrat, administrator, Headmaster, Head of House, Astronomy Professor, Substitute professor (Celeste Peakes), Student (Aludra Norton) and then I was manager of 3 shops, Madam Malkin's being the busiest.
Now as I do have other wiki's I edit on, and a life outside the computer world, things were getting a bit much for me for my roles here, so I chose to forego being shop manager in any shop. As more students come to this site, I simply worry that ultimately I won't be able to keep up wi…Read more >

So, I plan to release this is a day or two to the wiki, but if you read these things, you'll get a bit of a heads-up. This Year, I was thinking about what things I could change or alter to make this place more fun. One thing I've always liked about role-playing is knowing exactly what my character can and cannot do. I've played a ton of roleplaying games, from online text based Star Wars roleplay, to dice rolling D&D to MMO's like World of Warcraft. One thing I've noticed is that they are all very structured, and have limits so the game is balanced between players and such. So, I was thinking to myself how we could add a little more sturcture and yet make characters gain more depth so they're not all the same. It was a difficult prob…Read more >
Alright, well this is the last week of our normal school year. Next week all classes will be closed down to get things ready for the next year. I would like to have an End of Year Party or Graduation Party, but I'm not sure how to go about that, or where to have it etc. So, if you have any ideas, let me know on my talk page. Also, we will have Hogsmeade for roleplaying, and the House Carriages open, plus the last quidditch match should be running, so there will be lots of activities going. I'm even thinking of introducing an idea I have to possibly make this place more exciting:Relics! I think that's enough of a teaser for now. :P Anyway, I hope everyone is as excited as I am to start the next school year, as we'll have some great new…Read more >

Hi. I have an amazing programme for art on the computer and I thought, if anyone wants one, they can get one here! They're very easy to make and only take a few minutes, so if you want one, just read the instructions.

So, we had an impromptu admin meeting on Tuesday. It started with just User:Echostar and myself getting on chat to talk about a couple changes for this next year, and then User:Head of Ravenclaw, User:Windsword7, and User:Peislandgal all whom are admins joined the chat, so it became an admin meeting. We chatted about a bunch of stuff, especially some changes we feel need to be made for this next School Year. This next Year will be 2013, which technically shouldn't be happening if the world end this year right? For those of you wondering, I don't believe it will, but I guess you never know right?Read more >

Wow, it's been a while since I posted a blog post huh? I guess maybe I should try to do this more often. Anyway, this is really just a test as a user told me they were having some issues with this. Overall it seems to be working for me. I think maybe I'll try to post daily with my thoughts about the wiki, things I still need to work on, or things I need to remember, and possibly and huge changes I made, though I don't make huge visible changes very often. Anyway, I think this is good for a test, and so I'll post it and go from there.Read more >
Ok, so I know my inactivity is really effecting the wiki. So, I have decided to pull out of teaching after this term. My characters aren't up for adoption, but I will retire them. Also, next term I will be working strictly OOC.
Have a Great Day.

Rosabella Phantom looked out the window in her booth on the Hogwarts Express to the waving parents below. She spotted her parents. She gave a brisk wave and a nervous smile. Her mother smiled impatiently and put her hand up.
Of course. Mother would rather go shopping then wave her own kid off on her first day of school. Yeah, love you too, Rosabella thought bitterly. She glanced at her father. He gave her a grim smile and nodded. She looked at the other parents as the train began to move. Everyone else's parents were waving frantically and little siblings were chasing after the train as it gained speed and began to leave the station. She sighed and patted her wand, which was tied up in her bun on her head.

Before The Trip
Actually, its on January 24 (tuesday) so I'll post here after our trip! We're going to three places to the north of the Philippines. Of course, since Miggy (Cosmiggy) is my best friend and classmate, we're going to be together in the trip with our classmates. I'm going to post our trip in Bataan, Subic and Pampanga. In Bataan, we're going to Mount Samat to see the giant cross of Dambana ng Kagitingan (Shrine of Bravery). In Subic, we're going to have a tour around the place and shop at Duty Free. In Pampanga, we're going to see the San Guillermo Sunken Church which was half-buried by lahar (volcanic mudflow) when Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991. The bus will be going wild since our class is noisy. Hope to have fun in the trip…Read more >

Henry clapped his hands for Gregory, who got sorted into Hufflepuff. He went to the Hufflepuff Table to join his new housemates. He sighed and wished to be put there. He waited for some more students to be sorted. "Boniface, Clement!", a medium-heighted boy with shiny brown hair walked to the stool and sat on it. After around 3 seconds, the hat shouted, "Slytherin!". The boy's face didn't smile or frown, just blank. He just stood up and went quietly to the Slytherin Table. "Arnaven, Avylene!" and a slightly brown skinned girl went to the stool and sat down. Her blue yes twinkled as though it was some sort of tiny sapphires. The hat was placed on her head and after a few seconds she was sorted into Hufflepuff. She beamed and went merrily to…Read more >

The worst part about the last name 'Waters' is probably that Teresa is usually the last or one of the last people in just about anything; but it fit her somehow. It worked.
Teresa looked at her friend Alim. He had been sorted into Ravenclaw towards the beginning, because his last name was Acer. He gave her a thumbs-up. Teresa nodded curtly and took her seat at the front of the Great Hall. The Sorting Hat was placed on her head.

Hello everyone. I'm really lucky to know this wiki. I've got to meet different people from different backgrounds and I have so much fun. In fact, I've decided to make an RP and fanfiction wiki like this. I'm not trying to compete with DA wiki since this is more great. I'm still building my wiki, putting up classes, professors, and others. To make sure I don't really get all ideas from this wiki, I've changed some of the names of locations and names. Of course, I've looked up many ideas from Harry Potter wiki and DA wiki. The problems I'm facing is: student, professor and member shortages and templates. The templates I've made are not really templates, since they are only source codes. But still, everyone has their own style. There are only…Read more >
