Student of the Week: Crissy! Congratulations! ^_^
Mirror of Erised: Just so you all know, all of the desires are stored in the database. So if yours isn't picked during an update, it could be in the future!
Nina - a card featuring luna lovegood
MoLi -a choice card from your favorite movie for everyone
Maron - I wish for everyone a choice card with a female person
Jennifer - I'd like to double the result of all the other wishes in this update. :)
New Decks: You may take a total of 10 cards, but no more than 2 per deck! If you donated/made the deck, you may take an extra card from that deck! (Aji gets TWO extra from Gary Oldman, Helena Carter; Maron gets TWO from Loony)
I'm updating a couple of days early because on Monday (our normal update days), my son has to have surgery at 6 AM. And I'm dedicated to get updates out to you all in a timely manner!
I'd like to welcome Nicolie as our new Astronomy professor! She will be starting at the beginning of 2nd term and I am very excited to see what she has to offer in her classroom! ^_^ We are still in need of Herbology and Transfiguration professors! I am working on a class script for registration and managing the classes, so being a professor will be getting a lot easier! Term 2 is right around the corner! Ahhhh!
Everyone's profile now shows their "about me" or "biography". You can put whatever you want here, with a limit of 255 characters (I think). And if you haven't noticed, on Thursday I added everyone's wands to their profile! I was super happy about adding it and other tiny details. :D I really love personalizing everything on the site, so I'll probably be doing this a lot, haha!
There is also a new service in Knockturn Alley (Shops)... you can order a custom wand. However, these services do not come cheap. Since the witches and wizards offering these services in Knockturn Alley are using dark magic to manipulate your account, they need to charge a lot more. And there may or may not be consequences to using these services, too. Bewareeee!
Last update I mentioned that there will be a bit of autumn cleaning going on. All card logs and Gringotts logs will be reset, which means you should get the information you need from them before September 30th! Also, all house points will be reset! I'm not sure if I want to reset every term versus every "year", so I'm going to test out how every term goes first and then decide if I want to change it at the end of this school year.
I can't wait for a bunch of new features coming up this season! Fall and Winter are my favorite for holiday activities, so I'm going to be all over them! Look forward to Potterween with Riddikulus, but then... Thanksgiving Special, Advent Calendar, Secret Santa, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't contain my excitement, you guys!
Oh! And I'm dying to give out this new secret avatar! It has to do with Snape, yo.
See you all next time! <3 <3
PS. My husband found the toad in our yard. I totally got flat on the ground to take that picture of the toad JUST FOR GOBSTONES. I hope you all know how much I love you all, haha!
