[copy-pasted from HPB]Ahoy, Gryffindors!First off, let me apologize for the lateness of this... *hangs head*Some of you might've noticed a thread started not so long ago, concerning the Triwizard Tournament - a legendary event, which, incidentally, will take place in the months to come here at HPB. We will have a Hogwarts-shaped Tournament though, one champion for each House. All the rules and requirements are here:http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=51501 We can't give out much information yet, but guys, I promise, this will be exciting.Not to mention the whole points-winning possibility, along with fame and glory! So, everyone who feels up to representing Gryffindor, please send your applications to the Gryffindor staff [Hermione Granger, Fred Weasley, Gilderoy Lockhart, or Severus Snape], no later than September the 1'stIn your application, though there is no real form, you should state your reasons as to why you think you will be a good candidate for Gryffindor, and tell us what you expect from the tournament. Be sure to Check the requirements!Good luck!
Here are just some random things that I found which I thought might bring some Gryffindor spirit!
Totally random, but I found this when searching for 'lions' the other day.( PictureCollapse )
HUGE Congratulations to iluvdraco345 (Roslyn) on becoming a Gryffindor deMentor! Ros - you've been so awesome in Gryffindor and it will definitely be nice to have another sweet deMentor on board to guide Gryffindor. Have fun, and congratulations!!
Gryffindors - there's some news for you. You might already know this, but if you don't - go and check out! RPG AUDITIONS ARE OPEN! - if you're interested in roleplaying, go and join the madness, before all the characters are taken! Location: ---> http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=905465#post905465 Right now our beloved HPB somehow refuses to let me enter and provide you with more links, but I'll definitely be back.
Hello darlings!Well, go on, take a look at the new layout we finally got together, using the gorgeous header our very own Roslyn iluvdraco345 submitted to the contest.Next, we have some major news coming: Carly, aka FatalObsession is our first Gryffindor SOTM for October!!!!!!!Old news, some Gryffindor moderators changed their names.Lily Evans=Gabrielle DelacourMadam Rosmerta=Severus SnapeWe sent out the Gryffindor nominations for the boardwide awards, and are waiting with bated breath for the voting site to be set. We won't do voting and polling at HPB - it'll be too much posts and threads and an overall mess.The SSW went good, considering how unanimous we all were in using blinkies, avatars, and changing sigs. AND we did some lessons, we did! (hehe, well, ambe not all of us, but still)For now, it's all.
So, me dahling Gryffindors, we still have no header yet, but that's because the Design a Gryffindor Header contest's deadline had been extended to September the 20'th. That's soon, so go get your entries ready ASAP!
This Contest is located in the Chamber of Challenges, and here's the link --> http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44842
In all, you can win up to 50 points for Gryffindor, just being creative and inventive, and original. I know you guys have it in you, so let us prove we're the RAWR!
The objective of this particular contest is to promote the HPB lj community, (which needs all the promotion it could get, cause it's dead. DED). Here you can get up to 15 points for just friending and joining. GO! (link here: http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44840 )
Be good, and more news to come soon. No sleeping! *waggles finger*
Hello hello, my *lazy* dahlings!
The new contest is a Caption one. So, this means tons of fun, and if you miss it, I'll spork you into oblivion, mark my words! The contest is located there: http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44684 and yes, I can't make this stupid hyperlink to work, argg! carlya23 - dear, thanks so much, but the stooopid link won't work properly. Or maybe it's me the stoopid one.Bah.
Each submission will get you 10 points, and the winners will win 50 points. So, go creative, and funny as you like, and participate!
Now. The Design a Header contest didn't work nearly as well as we supposed it'd go. That's a huge disappointrment, and can mean only one thing - you guys aren't interested. That's really bad, and we mods must think up a new way of cooperating with you. And here, my dahlings, you can help. Post suggestions, and thoughts here, of all places, since you don't seem to think the Gryffindor Tower's the best place to do that.
And, one small warning. If you peeps don't wake up before the 12'th September, you'll have to live with the super ugly header that we mods will cook up for you. Mrahahaha
There. :) Barkeepers have a lousy memory (remember Barliman Butterbur in LOTR? and I mean the BOOK), and your humble servant isn't much different, though I try my best. :)
So, the contest. This one we started not exactly recently, but there are no entries (cause no one's seen the thread, probably. *cough cough*). So, I'm trying to get to you through the lj. :D
The contest is located here --> http://www.harrypotter-boards.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=44586 (still haven't figured out why the stinky lj won't let me post hyperlinks. meh)
Join, and have fun! The best header will be used on this account, of course.
Hello, hello, fellow Gryffindors!
For those who do not know - I am Madam Rosmerta, also known as edely , and Wavs, the new maintainer of the (rather sleepy now) Gryffindor lj community. I am also happy to announce that Anne ( encantadora_x ), our lovely Ginny Weasley , is a maintainer as well.
The next bit of news is that we're having a thorough revamp of out community, including the new look, which, I hope, will suit everyone. :).
Let us start now, and stay tuned. We're hoping that we'll be able to bring the community back to life.
