INTERMISSION

For the next two weeks, staff will be busy preparing for the term switch. To be able to focus on that, we will close the Ranking forum until the 31th of May. It will open again with summer term, so on the 1st of June. Note that this means no new applications can be made until then, but the characters up for rank now will still receive their reviews.

Please be patient while we prepare WR for a magical summer term. ^^

Happy Wurring!

HOUSE POINTS

With Quidditch almost at it's end and FOA nominations just starting, there sure is a lot going on on Wurr right now! But we can't forget about our amazing House Cup, can we? So, let's check out what the points tally is looking like for this week!

Gryffindor: 537
Hufflepuff: 166
Ravenclaw: 208
Slytherin: 253

It seems most houses had a visible increase in their points, although I'm not sure what happened to our dear Ravenclaws, as apparently this week was a no-go at the nest of eagles. But hey, there's always next week! I believe in you! As for who is this week's victor when it comes to increasing points, that would definitely be Gryffindor, closely followed by no other than Hufflepuff! Nicely done, lions and badgers, keep up the good work! There's only two weeks left of the term, so how about we make those count as much as we can? Keep submitting those points, and as always, thank you everyone for all your hard work!

Happy Wurring!

HOUSE POINTS

Another week has passed and so much has happened around Wurr! Quidditch season is over (#GoGryffinpuff), FOA nominations are now closed, and voting is soon to begin for all of you to decide who will win our prestigious Furry Onion Awards! But, another thing that still needs to be decided is the winner of our House Cup, so how about we check out what the point tally looks like right now?

Gryffindor: 543
Hufflepuff: 190
Ravenclaw: 214
Slytherin: 259

Look at Hufflepuff go! They had the highest increase in points for this week, and are almost catching up to Ravenclaw! Be careful eagles, or by the time next week comes, you could end up fourth. Then again, Ravenclaw isn't all that far from catching up to our second place, so who knows what will happen by the time May ends!? Slytherin better watch their backs! As for first place, one thing is certain, if any other house truly wants those sweet sweet bragging rights and that awesome Mirror of Erised access, they will have to put all of their effort in order to catch up to Gryffindor, because it looks the lions are here to win, win and win!

As always, thank you everyone for all your hard work, and remember to keep submitting those points! There's only one week to go!

Happy Wurring!

LIGHTS OFF!

Hello Wurrians! As some of you may already know, today is the last day of Spring Term! Change of term is happening tonight, and Summer Term will come with a lot of new and exciting things, including but not limited to a brand new site skin. Of course, this also means that staff has quite a lot to do, and because of this, WURR will be going offline tonight at 11:30PM CST until tomorrow at 2:30AM CST. This means that no members other than staff will have access to the site during these 3 hours of downtime (although the CBox will still be available for your use). We apologize if this causes any inconveniences to you, but it's just a few hours and all for the sake of ensuring the changes go as smoothly as possible!

Today is also the last day to submit threads to be counted for Spring House Points and to vote for our Spring Furry Onion Awards. So, remember to do that if you haven't just yet! ♡

As always, happy wurring!

THAT SUMMER FEELING

New term, new me? Let’s be real, probably not! But definitely quite a lot of new things. As you probably already guessed by the sight of Wurr’s brand new and incredibly beautiful skin (thank you, Exh!) and the fact that it’s now June 1st…Spring Term has come to an end. It was a great term, so many fun and memorable things happened, and we really hope you loved it as much as we did. Of course, there’s still a few things left to announce about spring, so stay tuned, because our Furry Onion Award winners will be posted soon for everyone to see! As for the House Cup winners: after counting and adding up the points for all those amazing submissions you all did, we have our final House Point tally, so let’s check that out and see which house took the cup this spring!

    In fourth place, with no less than 208 points, is Hufflepuff!

    Soaring ahead of our badgers, in third place with an impressive 252 points, is Ravenclaw!

    With a great final jump forward in points, in second place with a whooping 318 points, is Slytherin!

    You probably already guessed it, but that means that in FIRST PLACE, with an incredible final count of 603 POINTS, is no other than GRYFFINDOR! CONGRATULATIONS LIONS, YOU DID IT!

Thank you sooooooo much everyone for all your hard work and for submitting so many points! You all did incredibly! As reigning champions over the House Cup, our dear Gryffindors get all the bragging rights they want, along with access to super special areas of WURR such as the Chamber of Erised. Congratulations once more!

Exciting, isn’t it? But this announcement isn’t over with just yet, because along with announcing the winners for our House Cup, we also want to take the time to thank our Spring prefects for their dedication and all their hard work during last term. Sadly, it’s time for them to step down, so make sure to thank them and congratulate them on a job well done when you see them around! If you’re wonderingwho will take their place? Well, that’s what you’ll find out right here and right now. So, let’s give a joyful welcome to our Prefects for this Summer Term!

Congratulations you all! We’re really looking forward to seeing what fantastic things you’ll do during your term! Now, the promotions and goodbyes aren’t over with just yet, because the start of this Summer term also means we have two brand new Head Students who will be sporting Wurr’s fabulous purple until the end of Fall term! Before we announce their names, we would like to give our thanks to @Seraphina Windsor (Kimmy) and @Theodore Isley (Storm) for their work as Head Students and overall dedication to this site and its community. As you can see, Storm is moving on to another term as a prefect, and we're sure she'll do amazing things! As for who will take her's and Kimmy's place as Head Students, the badges will go to no other than one of Gryffindor's favourite power couples: @JR Zerner (Kenz) as Head Boy and @Kiska Ferdenova (Coco) as Head Girl! Make sure to congratulate them when you see them around and sporting those pretty purple name tags, and also congratulate our wonderful prefects of course!

Finally, now that we have announced winners, goodbyes and promotions, the last thing left to say is that Ranking is officially open again. Feel free to go rank up! But remember: there's a limited amount of reviews that will be taken, so please give a chance for everyone to go through the ranking process with their characters and try not to rank with more than one character at once.

Of course we've also done our regular term cleaning. This means some threads might have been moved to the graveyard, but don't worry - you can use Mod Requests to get them back if you'd like to post in them again. We've also cleaned out the claims (face claims, Hogwarts staff claims,...) so don't forget to check those and re-claim if necessary!

That was a long announcement, wasn’t it? But it looks that’s all there was to say for now! Even more announcements are to come regarding all the awesome additions we have this Summer Term, so stay tuned, and I hope you all have a happy Summer Term! Stells out.

A FRESH COAT OF PAINT!

Yes, it's that time of year again! You've likely already noticed WURR's sparkly, new skin, but just in case you missed it, you can find it in the drop down menu under "Summer 2018 - Greener Pastures"

If you happen to stumble across any bugs or weird coding on your travels, please let me know about it HERE. I'll try to see to any issues or concerns as soon as possible! Suggestions/ comments/ observations are also welcome.

In the meantime,
Happy Wurring <3

ARE YOU READY, KIDS?

For staff's summer event, we will be playing Paintwand - our magical version of Paintball. The Pink Lady announced it during breakfast in the Great Hall as a game to let the students blow off some steam after their exams. The castle quickly turned into a paint battlefield, because only the last student standing will get a price! Will you be running or seeking out peers to hit? Are you going to team up or turn on all your friends? Let's find out!

Get started here: IC Announcement, OOC Announcement, and How To Play! Then you can sign up here and get this party started!

Have fun!

Quidditch Blues?

The Quidditch season officially ended last term, but we have good news for those who already miss it - before we say goodbye to quidditch again, we still have one edition of this year's Quidditch Quarterly for you!

Mathilde De Clercq took over as Chief Editor and was joined by Icarus St. George to bring you this second and final edition of the Spring 2018 QQ, which features interviews with Gryffinpuffs, Slytherclaws, and Gryffinclaws alike and talks about the two last matches. You can read it here!

IT'S LEVIOSA, NOT LEVIOSA

Another term has began, and with it a lot of our wonderful professors are starting brand new classes for your characters to join and enjoy. Yes, yes, we know it's Summer Term...but think about their education!

Now, because staff knows just how much work and dedication goes into planning a class, we have decided to reward all those efforts. So, from now on all main class threads will be worth double the house points – just like with events! The amount of points you can earn for answering questions in a class stays the same, but each post is worth double what it would be on a regular thread. Meaning that:

  • Starting a class thread: 6 HP
  • Each post of 1 paragraph or less in a class thread: 2 HP
  • Each post of 2 paragraphs in a class thread: 4 HP
  • Each post of 3 paragraphs or more in a class RP thread: 6 HP

Of course, this only applies to main class threads open for anyone to participate (or with sign ups), not to personal threads done in a class forum.

We hope you have a great time attending class! Happy Wurring!

EDUCATIONAL DECREE N°05

All students must wear their uniforms during class, and specially during exam time!

But didn’t we all already know that? Don’t worry, despite also dressing in various shades of pink, our dear Pink Lady is no High Inquisitor. Although, now that we’re talking about uniforms and exams, let me tell you about the new CDCs and MWMs that were added this month!

The theme this time around is ’Education’. June at Hogwarts is all about exams, so check out our June Monthly Writing Memes for some great exam related prompts to hopefully spark up that muse! And if you’d like to tell us all about how your character wears their uniform and in which way they personalize it, well then have a look at our 23rd Character Development Challenge! We hope you enjoy these CDCs and MWMs!

Happy Wurring!

HOUSE POINTS

Another term, another race for the House Cup begins. You know how it goes!

Hello Wurr! Welcome to the first House Points tally of Summer Term. As you can see, this term House Points will be counted on Fridays instead of Thursdays, beginning at around 11:59PM CST. So, how about we get to what you're all here for and check out those sweet sweet points?

Gryffindor: 60
Hufflepuff: 6
Ravenclaw: 24
Slytherin: 6

Oh boy! As expected from the victors of last term, our lions jump into this race with a roar, already accumulating an incredible 60 points in the 7 days that we've had of Summer term. Way to go, Gryffindor! Great Job! But wait, that's not all... because not all that far behind them, with an still incredibly impressive 24 points is Ravenclaw, holding tightly onto that second place and making their way towards first. Way to go, eagles! As for Hufflepuff and Slytherin, they both begin this term having accumulated only 6 points, but as mentioned before: merely 7 days have passed, and this race has just began!

As always, thank you everyone for all your hard work, and remember to keep submitting those points! Classes and events are both worth double the house points, so don't forget to participate in those!

Also, since we're here already, let me take this chance to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY WURR! May many more years come and may this community stay as amazing as it has always been ♡ Long may we live!

Happy Wurring y'all!

HOUSE POINTS

Hello Wurr, I hope you all had a lovely week! Of course, given that a week has already passed since our last House Points announcement, it was time to tally them once more and show you what the count is looking like so far! Let's see:

Gryffindor: 108
Hufflepuff: 60
Ravenclaw: 96
Slytherin: 24

Look at that! Wow! You all did amazing with submitting points during the week, and there has definitely been a significant point increase for all of our houses. So, congratulations to you all! Just look at Hufflepuff: last week they were sitting at only 6 points and now they're at ten times that amount! Nice! Slytherin also had a sweet increase, and can we take a second to talk about Ravenclaw??? Look at those eagles! They're almost catching up to Gryffindor! Our lions better be careful, or first place is going to get snatched right out of their pretty little paws.

As always, thank you everyone for all your hard work, and remember to keep submitting those points! Classes and events are both worth double the house points, so don't forget to participate in those!

Happy Wurring!
