5:32 pm - Hey there, folks.

Hey there, any former AAH members that may still belong to this community. I just wanted to say hello to everyone that I may have lost touch with in the year (!) since An Adventure at Hogwarts closed. If you like, reply letting me know how and what you're doing these days and any roleplaying projects you're involved in, etc. I'd love to hear from all of you. I miss you guys greatly.

10:52 pm - Sadness

Hello everyone.

Due to my crazy hectic schedule, I've had to resign from Adventure at Hogwarts.

I'll miss you guys lots, and you can always IM or Message me if you'd like to talk.

If anyone is interested as the maintainer of this community, just email me, and we'll work something out. LJ community ownership experience a plus.

It's been a great year, and I adore you all! Much love!

Hey kids!

I've made some changes to the community, just for ease and sanity purposes. Well, perhaps not for you, but for me.

As of...before Christmas, if you'd like to post something to The Owlery, it will have to be pre-approved. So, if it's anything that is of timely importance, I ask that you send it at least three days ahead of time, or page me on Yahoo! messenger(mariana_lestrange_slytherin), and I'll make sure to get to it as soon as possible.

If anyone has any problems, feel free to page or email me with this new change. This will just give us all a bit more control about what goes up on the main community page, and perhaps what doesn't belong. That being said, I don't think I'll be doing any censoring, but this will allow us to catch any mistake postings, as well as perhaps stop people we don't know from joining and then posting.

Comments and/or Discussion can be held in the comments for this post.

Cheers, and a Happy New Year!

9:48 pm - I posted in the right journal this time!

Hey, I'm Tricia, I play Kendra Eades (Hufflepuff 6th), Toni Trotter (Ravenclaw 6th), and Jared Eades (Ravenclaw first). Er, this is my first post in this LJ community, I've only just learned of its existence.

Anyways, I have a question to ask about the board. How do we know what the date game-wise is? Or are we just going by the approximate time of year we are in as we roleplay? I'm just confused about that.

What I like about AAAH most is that it never idles and that the admins always try to do things to spice up the roleplay. The means of playing Quidditch here kind of confuse me, but I think I am starting to get a grip. =o) I'm not used to the D&D-esque format or having to post in various spots every time Kendra does something on the pitch, but that's okay. It's a lot more organised that way.

Well, I'm done bibbling... I hope everyone is having a good Christmas vacation so far, and that some of you were more fortunate than me and do not have homework for the holidays!

7:33 pm - December Newsletter for AAH

Hello, my lovelies. ProfStark here with the latest news at An Adventure at Hogwarts RPG. I know, it's been awhile since I've done one of these newsletter thingies. Sorry 'bout that.

First of all, let me wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. As everyone travels about on their vacations and cruises, board participation may slow down somewhat. Family things obviously take precedence over online things, so if you are too busy to post, don't worry about it. We'll be here when you return. ;)

As most of you know, the Head Girl position was recently put up for grabs as the previous one has become inactive. Each applicant had to submit an essay explaining why they would be the best for the job, and then the Admins voted. Verbena Twilight's Seventh Year Gryffindor character won the vote, and is now Head Girl. All the applications were lovely, and a special thanks to everyone who applied. It was a tough decision!

The Christmas holidays on the board will be starting shortly. Your character can either head home for the holidays (There is a "Home for the Holidays" forum in the Wider World just for that purpose), go home with a friend, or remain at the school, although of course there will be no classes during the holidays.

The official Quidditch cup tournament will be beginning soon on the Quidditch board. I've had several people ask who the referee will be, as OliverWood is taking a hiatus for an indeterminate length of time. Well, the answer to that question is : Me. I will do my best, and I'm sure I won't be able to fill Aaron's shoes, but my best is all I can do, so it will have to be good enough. hehe As soon as the current practice games are all wrapped up, I'll post a revised Quidditch schedule and we'll get the show on the road.

A quick reminder on playing nice and such -- I've had a few complaints from players that other players are "bossing them around" OOC. heh I'm sure you can all see how that would be annoying, so if you realise you're doing that to someone, please stop. Players, if you are having trouble with that and bringing it to the other person's attention privately does not avail you, contact an Admin and we'll mediate. Oftentimes it's a simple misunderstanding that can be quickly and easily remedied if the heat is kept low and tempers even. hehe

As everyone has probably noticed, classes are picking up in activity again, and we're very happy to have Kelly as Sprout, our new Professor Grubbly-Plank, and Miri as Flitwick. Things are definitely looking up in that department. All who have applied for other characters lately and have not yet heard back, forgive me. I've been busy in real life, and will process them shortly.

I do believe that's all the news! Have a safe and happy holiday season, everyone!

From the Adventure at Hogwarts team

12:37 am - LT isn't perfect...*gasp*

Who knew? Lols.

Maybe it's that I'm just confused. If I had to pick one defining emotion as of late, it would definately be confused. My mind is boggled as of late.

We had our last night of the show last night. It was our best performance, I think. It wasn't a packed house but the audience really responded well to the scenes.

Afterwards, we all decided we needed a cast party. We headed to Josh's house to eat Pocky, watch Anime and get buzzed. Fun Fun Fun.


I don't really like Mike. Well, it's more like he's a non blip on the radar. He's alright and everything but my stomach doesn't tumble when he's around.

Then why in the HELL did I end up sitting on the guest bed, kissing him (tenderly even) last night? I have little to no idea. There - atleast I'm honest about it.

I don't remember how it started, really, but it did. Nothing happened beyond that (I'm confused, not retarded) but even that much bothers me. I don't regret what I did - most of my philosophy being no harm no foul. But it's this morning that got to me.

I woke up, went downstairs for coffee and he is looking after me like a child smitten. I do NOT need this. I know it's my fault. I know I am to blaim. I have no illusions about that part. What I don't know is what to do.

It's obvious that we hit it off. There is nothing wrong with him. There is no real reason that I shouldn't go see Gothika with him Wednesday like he asked.

Unless, of course, we bring Jay into this. Though I'd rather not. Maybe I'm the child smitten here, gazing longingly into the distance after a star I could never hope to reach.

Oooh. That was pretty good. I'm gonna remember that line. *haha*

Anyways - I'm confused girl. *shakes head* Maybe it has nothing to do with Jay. If he asked me out, would I really go for it? Who knows...I'm just so terrified of messing things up. I do not want another Jason. I hate that he has this much influence on my life now but I can't help it. You are a mass of experiences, good or bad. Tough that the bad moments affect you more often than the good ones.

So that's me in a nutshell. (*Ah - help, I'm in a nutshell*) I may be going to Mexico for holiday, it depends on how I'm feeling. I could use the break but hanging with Alex and Hector for 3 weeks. Can I even hope to deal with that?


current mood: confused

10:18 am - Homepage Profiles

As most of you are probably aware (I hope...) we have player profiles on the RPG's homepage so that we can learn a little bit about the people behind the characters we love. For those of you who are REALLY out of it, the homepage is located at http://www.geocities.com/adventure_at_hogwarts

I haven't updated in a while, so I need to take down those profiles of people no longer playing. And if anyone who does not yet have a profile up would like one up, send me your personal information (name, hobbies, interests, anything you like, see the other profiles for ideas if you're stumped) and any pictures you have that you want put up and I'll make you your own little profile page. You can email all that stuff to me at adventure_at_hogwarts@yahoo.com . Also, those of you who have profiles up but need things changed, let me know, as I know life is not static and is always changing.

Hope to see some profiles from some of you soon!

9:39 pm - Advertising for the Board

Starky posted something about needing teachers a while back in her own journal, and a few people jumped on the bandwagon and decided to advertise in their own journals. I used fiatincantatum's wonderful, extremely thorough list that she posted on her journal, and just separated it into categories to make it a bit easier to read (hope that was OK!). So, I thought I'd post it here, just in case any of you feel like advertising for our fantabulous board! I'm going to try and hit some HP Livejournal Communities, myself, and I know a lot of you guys belong to other RPGs with players who'd be great for our game :-D

(Oh, and if anybody notices anyone missing...speak up! I'll edit it after checking with Stark first :) )

Without further ado...

The List

Note: Bolded Characters should be filled first

Available (and desperately needed) Teachers!Collapse )

Available Order Members, Deatheaters, and AdultsCollapse )

Available StudentsCollapse )

10:39 am - Vector

Hello fellow RP type people. I'm the new Professor Vector, but by the magic of schoole computers have been unable to see the board for the last couple of days!

Access Denied -- Internet Filtering Service The requested document, http://www.starkgames.com/cgi-bin/AAHBoard/ikonboard.cgi, will not be shown. Please contact your teacher for assistance.

Sorry! I will try and post at the weekends and during the week at internet cafes and such.

current mood: sorry

9:44 pm - Happy Birthday, Hoochie!

I don't know if it is appropriate to do this in such an open forum, but since you're one of the great admin crew I thought you'd deserve it. Happy 27th, romana03, may you have many, many more birthdays to come, and may fiatincantatum's little furry buddies be very nice to you today *G*.

7:59 pm - Suggestions and Feedback are Welcome -- Really!

Heya, lovelies. ProfStark here. Lately there seems to have been a lot of misunderstandings on the board and a lot of ruffled feathers, whether between player and Admin, teacher and student, player and player, etc. So I would like to try to better open the channels of communication and invite everyone to give us feedback on the game.

Now, before you start either flaming us or flattering us, let me lay down a few stipulations. This is to let us know what complaints our players have, so that we can see what needs to be fixed. However, things need to be kept civil and not get heated. Another fight won't do any of us any good.

Feedback GuidelinesCollapse )

After reading the Guidelines, feel free to begin posting any and all thoughts you have on how the game could be improved. I promise to try my best not to take any of it personally. If you'd prefer to make your suggestion anonymously, you can email me at Angelic_Misanthrope@yahoo.com or PM any of my character IDs.

I love you guys, and I want to make the game as good as it can be. I don't want you to think that you can't approach me when you have problems.

Love you all!

5:55 pm - Chat room!

Aaron got the registration key for the chat room, so we should now be ready to go very soon! Keep an eye on the space next to the "Your Control Panel" tabs -- you'll soon see one that says "Chat" in all the skins! I'll make an official announcement when all links are up, but couldn't contain myself in the meantime. *winks*

current mood: chipper

11:59 am - I have to say...

... that I'm very pleased with how people are playing in my classes so far. Not one "did it perfectly and waited to be told what to do next" sort of post, hurray!

Pity we don't learn a whole lot of Transfiguration incantations in the books... just in the movie.

Oh well, that's what online Latin/English dictionaries are good for :D

11:47 pm - HELP! Please, HELP!

Okay, I found this journal browsing through HPRPGs on LiveJournal, and I just had to share. Is it too much or what???


Where do these people come from, anyway?

6:27 pm - Board Outage

I thought this might be a good place for a copy of this announcement, in case anyone thinks to look here while the board is out. If you've read the thread in GD, you've seen it.

9:27 pm - A Reminder

Just letting everyone know that if you see players without LJs and if they would like to have one, we do have a system set up so that they can get a code. Just direct them to me. I'm available in about 5 different ways on the board, so just send them to my profile, and they can pick their form of request. Or, have them respond to this post.

I hope the_owlery is working out for you all. If you guys have any suggestions or ways to make it better, let me know.

-S.B., Mod Without a Cause
