#383841 Anti-Bullying Psa (Ooc Concerns)

Posted by Prof. Sorcha Logan on 19 September 2012 - 09:25 PM

Posted Image

It has come to the attention of the Governors of Hogwarts Online that personal bullying is occurring in high volume in the associated social venues of the site (i.e. the chatroom, facebook, and YIM). While HO's harassment policies are limited to actions that occur on the hswcw website and direct contact between two or more members, it is still essential that all members of the forum act in a respectable manner and remember the Golden Rule. For those who do not know the Golden Rule it is as follows:


Do unto others as you wish them to do unto you.


(Basically, don't treat other people like crap because karma will hit you in the big one.)


Now, I'm not making this announcement because of karma. I am making the announcement because every so often, as new waves of members become active and things on the site grow and change, it has become a pattern that OOC bullying occurs more frequently during these times. I would like to iterate that you are not required to like anyone on this forum. However, you are encouraged to give respect to all members of the forum, no matter who they may be and no matter where you encounter them. If you are having a personal issue with a member that cannot be solved in a civil manner, seek help of a Hogwarts Online administrator if this problem is interfering with your ability to either A)remain active on HO or B)complete a job on HO. We advise that you do not advertise your woes and personal problems in a public venue, for this will only generate additional controversies, complaints, misunderstandings, and quarrels.


OOC Bullying and harassment is taken seriously at Hogwarts Online as we have a zero tolerance policy and if you feel you are truly being bullied, please feel comfortable in contacting any of the Governors. If you feel it is a Governor that is bullying you, and you are worried your opinion or situation will not be heard, I would like to personally advise you to still seek the aid of a Governor. We work as a team and are looking out for the best interests of everyone.

Thank you and best regards,

#980359 New Year And A New Direction

Posted by Prof. Chauncey Clemenceau on 12 January 2019 - 03:23 PM

deskofcc.png

 

Members of the Hogwarts Online Community,

 

I write to you for the final time as it is time to say goodbye. As a new calendar year begins, so too a new age on HO.

 

Since the founding of HO on July 26, 2005 I have had a strong group of supporters that have helped to make this community what it has been and what it is today. I am grateful for those many friendships I have cultivated throughout the years. HO gave me my start, HO gave me a place to be and has been part of my life for more than half of it. For quite sometime, I have been absent from HO and that has always bothered me. For a site and community to truly thrive, it must have a strong, benevolent owner that can provide support and direction. That support and direction has been missing on HO for a number of years, even though it has had many dedicated and competent governors.

 

While January 12, 2019 marks my final day of ownership for HO, today marks a new beginning for HO. After today, HO will be owned by Giselle D'Lisle. The writer behind Giselle has been a longtime member of HO and a dear friend of mine. He has been a member of HO since 2005. The writer behind Giselle will be the new individual to give HO that support and direction that it needs. He is perfectly suited for this role because not only can he lead HO in a new direction, he can do so knowing well the roots of where we came from!

 

My advice for both the new owner and the governors board is to always remember that first and foremost this is a community centered around a love of the Harry Potter series. Community, being the most important part of it. 

 

With that said, I truly wish this community all of the best!

#983291 Member Group Changes

Posted by Giselle DLisle on 24 January 2019 - 03:13 AM

Xy9bLoX.png

Greetings & Salutations,

 

You may have noticed that there have been a few small changes to the site's member groups. This is part of a larger effort to optimize and clean up HO over the next few weeks.

 

These changes primarily affect adult groups. There will no longer be separate member groups for UK, Swedish, and French professions. Instead, there will be one group for each profession and a general group for citizens of each country. So, from now on adult members will be sorted like this:

 

Primary Group: Profession (Ex. Magizoologist)

Secondary Group: Country & Secondary Profession (Ex. Swedish CitizenDark Wizard)

 

We will also be phasing out the now-defunct Beauxbatons groups. All former Beauxbatons students will be placed in one group. If you wish to have a former Beauxbatons student transferred their account will still be easy to find.

 

Finally, I am doing a test run on badges next to names for positions as opposed to (P) and (G) etc. If people seem to like it and it doesn't cause issues with the code, we will adopt this system of denotation more widely.

 

Thank you!

#927379 Hogwarts House Cup, Winter 2018

Posted by Prof. Sorcha Logan on 18 March 2018 - 09:57 AM

n3wy1g.png

Wow! Yet another term has come and gone, and this one was quite the doozy! This term, the four houses battled tooth and nail to take the lead in house points, with a particularly gruesome and close competition between Ravenclaw and Slytherin houses. Indeed, it has been several years since I've seen the competition go as close as it was this term. These houses each have something to celebrate, because participants earned an impressive number of house points in each house! Please join me in congratulating everyone for their hard work this term!

 

In last place, with 18,129 points is Hufflepuff.

In third place, with 19,727 points is Gryffindor.

In second place, with 27,466 points is Ravenclaw.

Finally, in first place, with 29,237 points is Slytherin!

The house cup will continue, yet again, to reside in head of Slytherin house, Prof. Liam Kartak's, office.

Dear Members

 

After deliberation and analysis of the needs in Sweden and Durmstrang,

the Board of Governors have decided to institute following changes in Sweden.

The reasons for the changes are to sustain the increased activity across all

areas of the country and school & to ensure that there is an equitable split in roles.

 

Elena Balakov will be responsible for running of the Swedish Towns' Council

and all the various aspects that this pertains to.

Her loyalty and hard work for Durmstrang is highly appreciated and we know she will flourish in her new role.

 

Prof. Annabelle Nyland has been appointed as the Director of Sweden and Headmistress of Durmstrang.

Her dedication and willingness to put Sweden and Durmstrang first has illustrated

her capability is perfect for the position.

 

Let us support these writers IC and OOC in their positions.

#981548 Mirror Rule Changes

Posted by Giselle DLisle on 16 January 2019 - 02:35 PM

Xy9bLoX.png

Greetings & Salutations,

 

The Governors have heard many suggestions about how the site can be improved over the last couple of weeks. This included updates to the Mirror rules. As our Mirrors become ever more full with face claims, it follows logically that this also imposes some restrictions on new characters being made in the image their writer has seen them in. To alleviate this issue, the following changes are being made to the alumni reserve rules:

 

1. Following graduation, HOS Alumni who wish to reserve their face in all 3 countries must contact the Mirror.

2. If the Official HOS Alum character remains active, their face is reserved in all 3 countries.

3. Alumni faces can never be claimed in the country where the character graduated, provided they remain active.

-In order to be considered active, an alumnus must have logged in at last once in the last 6 months.

4. If an Alumni goes inactive, anyone may request the inactive character's face.

5. If an inactive Alumni returns, they have the right to reclaim their face by PMing the Mirror, but they must share the face if it has already been claimed by an active member before their return.

6. Alumni must be re-sorted as an adult BEFORE you send in your face.  Graduating 7th years who send it in early will not be added, and will have to send it in or bump the PM once they are in an adult masking.

 

We want to continue to honor the great achievement of graduating from Hogwarts while being mindful of new members to the site. Alumni members must now log in at least once in 6 months to continue reserving their face. However, if they fall inactive and someone else claims their face they may return and reclaim it with the caveat that the face is then shared with the active member.

 

In addition, we understand that sometimes the face you initially chose no longer suits your character. Previously, you could only change your face once at graduation or when the account changes hands. However, the rules will now be changed to allow everyone to change their face ONCE outside of these requirements for very good reason and at the discretion of the Mirror.

 

We hope you will enjoy these new freedoms and continue to make our site the gold standard in Harry Potter RPG.

 

Yours always,

Xu9tSMx.png

#984255 Mental Health On Ho

Posted by Giselle DLisle on 28 January 2019 - 12:44 PM

Xy9bLoX.png

Beloved Members,

 

Given recent events, the Governors and I have decided to take several steps to improve HO's response to mental health issues that our members may be dealing with on a regular basis. Mental health has long been a taboo in our society, but HO is a safe space for all people and we want you to feel comfortable discussing the very normal issue of struggling with mental health issues.

 

To that end, we will be working to make resources available to all of our members so that you can seek our help if you are feeling like you need assistance coping with your thoughts and feelings. We would also like to invite you all to take a brief survey about HO and how we can better help you all feel safe talking freely about your issues here on the site and with your fellow members. This survey is completely anonymous and will be used to improve the site.

 

Please remember, if you are having thoughts of suicide, you should seek help immediately. Find many international resources on suicide prevention HERE. As always, feel free to approach any Governor with questions or to seek support here on the site.

 

HO SURVEY ON MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

 

Yours Always,

The Governors

#870328 Durmstrang Institute New Houses Information

Posted by Prof. Yves Drasche on 24 March 2017 - 10:51 PM

0V4SCcG.png

 

Dearest HO members,

 

For months, I have been keeping this a secret.... well, a secret as best as I could. Working with an amazing group of writers who are now my Heads of House and organizers of the Durmstrang Dark Plot (the Dark Wizards, mind you) we are now proud to unveil the new houses coming to Durmstrang during Spring Term 2017.

 

Perhaps the changes in the Main Offices will take a little time to come forth. And I know that most of you are scared of this change. However, let me assure you, this desicion was not taken lightly; it has been on the working table for months and now the phoenix is ready to take flight.

 

----------------------------------------------

DURMSTRANG INSTITUTE HOUSES

(permanently effective Spring Term 2017)

 

YDALIR HOUSE

(Formerly known as LOKI)

 

HEAD OF HOUSE: PROF. GALATHEA DIVOIRE

Located on the First Floor Tower

7W4APFI.png

 

The house of immortality, raw energy and war.  In Norse mythology, it's the home of God Ullr, where the yew trees grow - home of hunters and cunning spirits. For many centuries, people of northen Europe made bows from the wood of yew trees. This tree is thought to have magical properties; in wandlore Yew wands are among the rarer kinds, and their ideal matches are likewise unusual, and occasionally notorious. The wand of yew is reputed to endow its possessor with the power of life and death, which might, of course, be said of all wands; and yet yew retains a particularly dark and fearsome reputation in the spheres of duelling and all curses. Wands hewn from these most long-lived trees have been found in the possession of heroes quite as often as of villains. Where wizards have been buried with wands of yew, the wand generally sprouts into a tree guarding the dead owner’s grave. What is certain is that the yew wand never chooses either a mediocre or a timid owner.

 
This house will aim to immortality through glory. It will unleash the apocalyptic war our wizarding society needs so desperately to cleanse itself. It reminds us that through destructions comes renovation; through death comes life. The students who are chosen to be in this house are often extroverts, loving the aspect of a changing life. They are filled with curiosity, energetic, open-minded and philosophical. They are good in dueling and often encounter themselves in mischievous acts of practical jokes, warlike strategy and hunter techniques. Members of Ydalir are not emotional moody people, in fact they can be downright emotionally detached but they do get irritable when they are bored. Ydalir are well adjusted people with no emotional problems holding them back. They just want to explore the world and not fret about emotions and feelings. Others may be hurt by their lack of commitment but they don't care, that's not why they are on this planet, they are here to gain wisdom, learn and explore. They might have problems finishing some projects they started if it takes too long, they want immediate results and will move on to the next project if it takes too long. This is not because of laziness, but this motivation to move on is due to their hatred of boredom. Boredom is their fear and instead of facing it, they will up and leave in search of something more stimulating.  They don't dwell on hurt because it is a waste of their energy.

NIFLHEIM HOUSE

(Formerly known as TYR)

 

 

HEAD OF HOUSE: PROF. SIEGFRIED ALEXANDRESCU

Located on the Fourth Floor Tower

 

Niflheim means (“Mist home” or “Mist World”) is the darkest and coldest region in the world according to Norse mythology. Niflheim is the first of the nine worlds and Niflheim is placed in the northern region of Ginnungagap. The eldest of the three wells are located in Niflheim which is called Hvergelmir “bubbling boiling spring” and it is protected by the huge dragon called Nidhug (Níðhöggr). It is said that all cold rivers come from the well called Hvergelmir, and it is said to be the source of the eleven rivers in Norse mythology. The well Hvergelmir is the origin of all living and the place where every living being will go back.  As the world tree Yggdrasil started to grow, it stretched one of its three large roots far into Niflheim, and drew water from the spring Hvergelmir. This tree is an Ash tree; in wandlore, ash is slightly associated with the Dark Arts, as the ash tree is said to ‘strangle’ the plants around it. It does excel at Dark magic, but is also good for Transfiguration. They also tend to bond to good Diviners. This makes Niflheim the house of knowledge and divine recognition. Wizards from this house are to hold the dark knowledge,  and distribute it only to those worthy of it. 

 
Students from Niflheim tend to be rebels just for the sake of having their own way. Their stubbornness sometimes causes their failure, they will continue to do something their way even though others have proved it is wrong, they are very smart people and know it is wrong but they will continue just because it is their way, they are very fixed in opinion and stubborn when confronted. Despite their stubbornness and fixed opinion, they will never impose their ideas on others, they have respect for everybody's differences. They are in search of wisdom, they are very observant and they can gather their information objectively because emotions do not get in the way, they seem to be above emotions altogether and when they speak, they speak the truth. They are visionaries, unconventionality and intellectual independence, the people who deviate from the crowd and go their own way. They are always after intellectual stimulation, constantly discovering something new, forming new opinions and stubbornly traveling their way regardless of what other people think. Niflheim are filled with paradoxes, they are interested in the opposite ends of the spectrum, they like to be alone yet are social butterflies, they like to experience both sides and see both opinions as they formulate new ideas with their forward thinking, active mind.

VANAHEIM HOUSE

(Formerly known as FREYJA)

 

 

INTERIM HEAD OF HOUSE: PROF. EMILIE LAUTREC

Located on the Third Floor Tower

 

 

Vanaheim  is the home of the Vanir Gods. The Vanir Gods is an old branch of Gods. The Vanir are masters of sorcery and magic. They are also widely acknowledged for their talent to predict the future. Nobody knows where exactly the land, Vanaheim is located, or even how it looks like. When the war between the Aesir and the Vanir ended, three of the Vanir came to live in Asgard, Njord and his children Freya and Freyr. The house of experimentation, of riches and praise, the dark souls from this house are the path finders, the responsible for finding new ways for the dark arts, new methodologies and practices. They are chosen to battle with the gods. This house has a ship - Sessrumnir, where first years stay before they move on to the main common room and dormitory as a means to prove their loyalty.

 
Vanaheim is associated with Oak; known as Wizard Wood, this wood is perhaps the strongest. Draws off the element of fire, as well as lightning. Seeks a powerful companion, a guardian and liberator. Students from this house are very independent but they need something to control and someone to admire them and appreciate them. They are fully capable of being greatly successful on their own but they are much happier if they have an audience and a following of people who look up to them. They would prefer not be alone. They love the new and extraordinary, they despise dull, regular routines and if this is what they are faced with, they will simply create their own drama and excitement. Vanaheim students are extremely sensitive but they hide that very well; they love praise and flattery, their egos demand respect and adoration - they are  all about pride. This can cause them to be self-centered.  They will never settle for second best. They want only the best which can cause lavish excessive spending habits as they enjoy their life of luxury, which is all to easily justified by the grand and magnificent Vanaheim! Public image is very important to them, with luxurious possessions and ways of life, this keeps the public image in high standing. They will do whatever it takes to protect their own reputation. Vanaheim are very generous, kind and open-hearted people. If they are crossed, they will strike back with force but they are not one to hold a grudge, they easily forgive, forget and move on.
