Greetings & Salutations,


Six years ago, the Governors and I, in my capacity as Minister of Magic, introduced the Order of Merlin to Hogwarts Online as a special distinction among members who have given extraordinary service to the site and the community. This honor has only been bestowed a handful of times since then in the First, Second, and Third Degrees.


This past week, Hogwarts Online was unexpectedly taken offline for reasons that we could not decipher. A handful of coding professionals examined the problem, our hosting service looked into the problem, and no one could figure out quite where things had gone wrong. Then, when the situation started to seem hopeless, Prof. Aine MacArthur contacted me and put me in touch with her friend, Shay, a professional programmer who was not a member of our community.


Within just a few hours, Shay had located the problem and brought our site back online, giving us all a great sigh of relief, me especially. Without Shay and without Prof. MacArthur connecting us, Hogwarts Online may have had an uncertain fate. Which is why the Governors and I have decided unanimously to award Prof. Aine MacArthur with the Order of Merlin, Third Class for expending her personal connections to benefit the site and the community. Though Shay is not a member of this community we also extend this distinction to her and thank her for her assistance.


Please join me in both congratulating and thanking them both.
