Did you know?

The Language of the Flowers was a popular method to express feelings where words might be improper, but did you know other means of doing so? Some ladies used their parasols, as well as their fans, gloves, and hankies to flirt with a gentleman (or alternatively, tell them to shove it!). — Bree

Iola Hitchens for Elladora Black. The Blacks' black sheep.
This boy, then. He wasn't new. Wasn't one of the worst people in the common room, those rotten rich boys - like Mr. Jailkeeper - who could not fathom a world beyond their own farts. Was a good working class lad, so he'd heard. Had a bit of a weird looking face, and a bit of a weird thing for preaching. Still.

January 2019

The AC is underway— deactivations and lists are underway, and everyone's posts now count for January! Remember that if you lost a character you did not wish to lose, you may post in maintenance to take their soul back from the reaper starting Wednesday, January 9th. If you currently have no active characters, you may post immediately to reactivate one!

Posting Wizard has rolled over! I don't know who's tabulating the December winner but someone will post that once they've done so ^^

Winter Labyrinth runs until the end of the month!
— Check out the January Writing Challenge!
— Brackets for this year's Quidditch cup will go up this month preparing us for the cup in February. Prepare yourselves.
— Keep an eye on the calendar to stay up to date on our IC events this month, and let us know if you have any to add!

MJ made this!

Hi friends! Just a quick reminder to please format height in your mini-profile as # ft. # in.. Uniformity is lame except in profile formatting ;) Thanks!

The Daily Prophet is Hiring!

That's right! The Hags are looking for 2-4 individuals to join our team. Interested parties should first meet the following requirements before applying:
  • Ensure you've posted at least once (as of the 15th) since the last AC—members who are struggling activity-wise aren't the best candidates for an added commitment!
  • Be willing and able to do a little bit of background research on an as-needed basis.
  • Be able to use simple HTML templates—put text and URLs in where needed; no actual coding required!
  • Be able to commit to a minimum of two articles per month.
  • Be confident soliciting content from members, be it hitting them up for quotes, posting a call for classifieds, etc.
  • Actually want to do this xD
If I haven't scared you off yet, please PM the DP account (Daily Prophet) to express your interest, confirm that you meet the above requirements offer a suggestion for a mini-event or a DP story "arc" (multiple-article plot, such as the amortentia letters) to show off your creative side and appreciation of our setting!

Submissions? Applications? will be accepted until Wednesday, January 23rd.

As always, please remember that you don't HAVE to be a Hag to write for the Prophet! We always accept submissions PMed to the Daily Prophet account with at least 48 hours notice for publication :)

Hi, friends! You may have noticed some gap weeks between Witch Weekly issues in December, and that's because we've had a bit of changes to our team! I took over the Lead Wench position mid-December, and it took a few weeks to get adjusted, but thanks to Lynn's help (xoxo <3) and everyone's patience we're now we're getting back into the swing of things. We've also lost a few members of our team since then, which brings me to the whole point of this announcement:

Witch Weekly is hiring—again! For our newer members, Witch Weekly is an in-character magazine issued every Sunday of month by our team, affectionately dubbed the Weekly Wenches. We publish everything from horoscopes to baseless speculation to "heard around town", so there's definitely something for everything! We're currently looking for two full-time Wenches and one half-time Wench for our team so we can continue to besmirch your characters' names on a weekly basis ;)

What do you need to become a Wench?
  • Commitment. When one Wench doesn't post their assigned article for the week, we have to use an emergency article, or another member—either one who's supposed to be enjoying a week off, or someone who's already written their article for the week—has to step in to cover them!
  • Basic HTML editing. Like the Daily Prophet (which you should also apply for ), Witch Weekly has a number of templates for you to edit your articles into. The ability to crop and lightly edit images is helpful, but not all articles require that, and we have a number of graphics people who can lend you a hand if do you need help!
  • Be able to do light research! While many of our articles aren't based in hard fact, most times you'll have to browse through threads and member profiles—specifically the reputation section!—to find content. In some cases, it might require hitting up a member for more information on a thread, character, plot, etc. to make sure you get things right!

Convinced you can handle it? PM the following application to Edric Umbridge by January 25th, 2019!

[b]Why do you want to be part of Witch Weekly?[/b]
[b]What article groups are you willing to write?[/b] (Cover, Group A, Group B, Main Article, Group C, Advertisements)
[b]Interested in full time or part time?[/b]
[b]If hired, which character account would you like to have Witch Weekly forum permissions on?[/b]
[b]Best method of contact?[/b] (We have a skype group chat, but I know there are sometimes better methods of reaching people on short notice!)

Curious about article types? We've listed them in a previous hiring event! Still unsure whether you'd be a good fit? We might have addressed your concerns before!
