HOL Quidditch is based on Harry Potter trivia knowledge. The questions are all taken from the Harry Potter books (including the two schoolbooks). There are no questions pertaining to the Harry Potter movies. Quidditch is played via IRC chat.
The channels on IRC are:
#quidditch for Quaffle play - #quidditch is moderated during a match - only players and the referee are allowed to talk in there
#snitch for Snitch play - #snitch is a restricted channel during a match, no spectator is allowed in there
#grandstand for the audience (cheerleading, spectators who chat about what's going on...)
#refchan for the Quidditch Board, referees, and involved team captains
#quidpractice is open to everyone on HOL for botting
The HOL Quidditch season starts in November and ends in late May or June.
