Gryffindor Common Room Registrations

Hello everyone! I wanted those who were waiting to be validated to know that it has been done. However, there is a problem. If you tried to sign up for the Common Room, or do an email or name change between the months of the end of October and mid-April, the database did not log your request.

There is literally nothing between those dates to validate, so I ask if you did so during that time frame to please register again as the system did not receive your original.

I will continue to check validations once a week from now on.

Missa

Gryfftoberfest!

It's time for Gryffindor's Annual Gryfftoberfest! We've been running this for years now, however there's been a change, for the better, we think. Between 90-95 percent of the contest will be open to ALL of HOL. Right now we are running the motto contest, which will end on October 1st. While that one is for Gryffindor's only, almost every single one of the other contests will be open to all of HOL.

We'll be doing a signature and avatar contest, based on the winning motto. There will also be tasks you can do to earn raffle tickets. There's our oldies but goodies, such as the Pumpkin Carving Contest and dressing up the Gryffindor Fat Lady in a lovely new gown, and so much more!

In order to participate you MUST be registered for the Gryffindor Common Room. If you aren't you can find instructions on how to register properly here.

Once you're registered, head on over to the Gryfftoberfest forum, located here We will be adding raffle tasks and regular tasks all throughout the month of October, so make sure you stop by!





Jazz and Maintenance

We are very happy to announce that the errors on the main HOL site should now be a matter of history. Amongst other things, this includes receiving log messages, beans, pet logs and the reopening of the Greenhouses.

Right now, we are trying our best to keep everything smooth and prevent such things from occurring in the future. In the process of achieving that, you might find handfuls of minor and major improvements on the site itself over the course of the next few weeks.

In case you still encounter certain errors, you can report them by emailing dario@hol.org.uk.

Thank you for staying true to HOL.

- HOL Headoffice
