Hey everyone, We will be using this thread to highlight when areas open/close, events as they are happening, etc. outside of BWU time. So here's the first announcement: Semester two begins tomorrow! First and second years should automatically be enrolled in their courses. Third years and above, don't forget to sign up for your lessons!! Also, make any purchases you need to as the holiday forums will be closing soon-ish.
Ending Y45! What a year it’s been! My brain still thinks we're mid-way through semester 1. House Cup The winner of the house cup is Slytherin!! Though all of the houses tried, with Ravenclaw trying more than most, Slytherin still won the cup! They have managed it again! Truly amazing the way the slytherins keep managing to take the cup. Massive congratulations to Slytherin, and all the students who put the work in to help them achieve it. An honourable mention to all the other houses, and all the students who tried to get their houses to win. Maybe next year another house will win but for now, let's just all celebrate Slytherin's success. For now, you can head over to the End Of Year Feast, to have character celebrate in their houses'...
It's time for Sorting!! 🎉🎉 As usual, there are two routes for bringing new characters into the school for Y46 !! GET THEM SORTED! Sorting is the best & quickest way to bring a character into the school. The sorting hat places them in the best house for them, and they enter as a first year (11 years old). We recommend this to all new members on the board. We also encourage you to fill out the sorting form based on what your character is like (not what house you want them in :glare:) - there have been known to be some terrible things that happen to people who aim for a specific house. There are some changes to sorting, so we encourage you to thoroughly read through the information on sorting topic! TRANSFER THEM FROM ANOTHER SCHOOL...
Hello all and welcome to another bi-weekly update! There's quite a few things to discuss so let's get right into it. End of Year 45 It's the end of another year here at Hogwarts New Zealand. My, how the time flies! The end of the year means there are a few things happening, including graduation and Slytherin winning the house cup! By now, all students have been promoted to their new groups and graduates have been moved to the graduate group, leaving them some time to finish up rps around the castle or post in the graduation ceremony. Hogwarts publications The end of the schoolyear also marks the time for two of Hogwarts' most fun publications to be revealed to us all. One of which is the second edition of the Hogwarts Monthly which...
It's 2024, and we are back with a new character spotlight. As a quick refresher, each month we choose a character who has caught our eye through roleplay, development, and usually some combination of the two. This month, our spotlight is on Daina's character, Thomas Jusantrea. :party: We have quite enjoyed seeing his evolution from his sorting into Gryffindor to now. Please join us in congratulating Daina on the spotlight, and be sure to ask any questions you have about Daina's process or character! Also, check out Thomas' bio. ^_^ Congratulations! :party::party:🎉 ~Cyndi (on behalf of the site staff)
In May, we offered A Solution for Image Hosting Woes and it was exactly that: a solution. It meant we controlled access to uploads and another image host wouldn't fail us. It was quick and dirty and based loosely off a system which site staff have used for years for board-critical uploads. But there was a lot to dislike about it, too. No multi-uploads. No finding your files again if you didn't save the URL or to manage your uploads at all after the fact. It did the job but just that one job. So it's in the spirit of wanting a solution that would work long term (even permanently?!) for the whole site that we invested in an official software add-on called the "media gallery" where you will be able to upload, tag, sort, and edit your...
