Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

This evening's pickups may have started out a bit slowly, but enough people flew onto the pitch to make it a night to remember! No cauldrons were strapped on heads today; instead, we started the festivities with two rounds of Xany (remember, that's the game where the first 3 to answer correctly get ...

Re: Refs Wanted

*throws hat into ring*

My weekday availability isn't great (i.e. I won't be able to ref before 12 AM HOL on any weekday - with the possible exception of vacation, but could do a late match most days) but I should be more available on weekends... but almost never before 5 PM HOL!

Group B - Emma Borg (9:26) [puzzle made by Will]
Group A - Will Lestrange (9:01) [puzzle made by Tarma]

Personality: In Character vs Out of Character

As part of the fascinating class "Career Advice: Planning Your Future", I had the opportunity to take a MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) test in character. I had taken this test many times out of character and knew what I would get: ENTJ (extraverted, intuitive, tough/thinking, judging) but near t...

Re: Discussion #2 - Personality

I have decided to take the personality test twice: both in and out of character. (I believe that Prof. Flores is most familiar with me in character as that is how I entered Mx HOL. For orientation purposes: out of character , I am a mathematically-trained professional in my mid-thirties who spent hi...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

There may not have been an enormous number of people at last night's pickups... but that doesn't mean that it wasn't an exciting time on the pitch anyway! (After all, as we will explain later, so many fascinating new things were tested out successfully!) While I was trying to find my way back from a...

Re: Rules Post

Now that there are multiple ties in seeding, it's time to say a few words about how the logic puzzle tiebreaker works! -The people involved in the tiebreaker will find a mutually agreeable time to meet. -At that time, they will all go into #snitch and a referee (or a QB member) will meet them there....

Re: Tournament Schedule

Even though the round robin matches have been played, there are ties that need to be resolved before playoff seeding is completed. In Group B, Scarlet and Shiloh have already punched their tickets in as the #1 and #2 seeds, respectively. But Emma and Shadow are tied for the final playoff spot... and...

Re: Quidditch Pickups... the 2017-18 Edition

Today's pickups, on a cool, bright evening in February, might have been the most thrilling ones of the year, thanks to a thrilling invention from Cody Lewis! We gathered together in our usual place when Cody had a special announcement: he wanted to test out a new game; a game so cool, so new, and so...

Edited on the calendar! Now that's week 4 taken care of... all that's left is week 5 and potentially up to two logic tiebreakers before the playoffs!
