20 Down, Many More To Go...

Text: See you next year!

Dear students and fellow professors, another school year is officially behind us. All of those who have managed to earn at least two quills will soon find their name another colour. For those of you looking to become teachers or professors (or just continue being one of those), keep an eye out for class applications. Unlike previous years, the applications will be a bit late and you can expect them only in a few weeks, but that will in no way have any result on the beginning of the term and other important dates for the next school year.

Now to the more interesting events!

A big congratulations to Ravenclaw House for winning the House Cup with 44,775 House Points! It was a close battle all the way till the end, but the final points have weighed in in Ravenclaw's favour, so congratulations once again. Excellent work!

Another round of applause for the Slytherin Quidditch Team for winning the Quidditch Cup without a single defeat, well done, Slytherin!

Now to individual honours: Arianna Stonewater of Slytherin is HOL's top points earner with 4,006 House Points. Congratulations, Arianna!

Graduation honours will be posted once our brave seventh years are done taking their NEWT examination, so let us all wish them the best of luck!

I hope everyone enjoys the summer. Make sure to keep an eye out for our summer activities.

Cheers!
HOL Head Office

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!

Graphic made by my 13 year old daughter in 20 minutes. She wanted longer but it was her bed time. Thanks Aya.

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

 photo gears.jpg

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





DO NOT PULL PLANTS

The HO is very aware that there is an error in the greenhouse...the plants don't show up when you go to turn them in. We've already sent someone 400 beans for this because they weren't as lucky in their bean count. I, myself will lose 800 total, from my last batch and this one.

I am telling, not requesting, telling, everyone who has a plant in the greenhouse, that they will be compensated for their plants that were planted before this post or have not been 'mature' for the last 2 months. Don't touch them. Unless they are dry, then let me know and I'll send you a bean or two.

So, any mature plants that have been sitting there over two months, I'm sorry. This issue isn't that old. To those who just planted, we'll cover. To those in the process, we'll cover.

The greenhouse is going offline in no more than 72 hours.
