Re: 2018-2019 Quidditch Pickups Thread!

Today we had the first pickup session of the academic year, and it was a rousing success... with every house well-represented! We began by getting out our cauldrons for a quick game of Creaothceann, and then we decided to divide into teams by discussing our favorite types of weather. While no one li...

Re: Changing house and/or name

Re: What Classes Would You Like To Have Taught?

I'd love to see a class on the finer points of IRC (including IRC code and scripts)! I also hope to see the Parseltongue class return, but I always had the feeling that I would be the one who ended up bringing that one back ;)

Pickups for 2018-19: SURVEYING THE AUDIENCE

It's the start of the new school year, and - once again - we'd like to run Quidditch pickups on a semi-regular schedule! To this end, I'd like everyone who's interested in participating in pickups to answer the following two questions: 1) What days and times tend work best for you (using HOL time)? ...
