HOL Virtual Hogwarts is celebrating Off to School and HOLLERS gets to join in the fun. :D

As we start the new term, make your way through these First o’ September tasks! There are no sign-ups and you have until January 15th to complete this HOLLERS Fall Challenge so you can work at your own pace. The First o’ September Hoots will count towards your Fall Term Hoot Count. Your Beans can be used to buy pets, plants, potion ingredients, books, or treats in Hogsmeade.

Follow the directions to figure out the password and unlock the next task. To get to the next task, click on the task number and type the password into the box that is displayed. If the password is correct, you will have access to the task. Each password is worth 5 Hoots. If you get stuck at any point, send a message to one of the organizers (Polaris Black or Prof. Tarma Amelia Black) and we will help you puzzle out the next password.

You will receive Hoots and Beans for completing tasks successfully. Please email your solution to each task individually (Make sure you use the correct subject!) along with the password to the next task to hol.hollers @ gmail.com (no spaces) by 11:59 PM HOL time on January 15th.

Email subject: First o’ September - [Puzzle] - HOL Name

Your emails should include:
- HOL Name, HOL-ID, House
- Task Solution
- Password (except for Task 12)

Begin HERE!! For easier access, we recommend bookmarking the First o’ September subforum.

Any general questions about First o’ September can be posted below. Questions specific to the tasks should be posted in their respective subforums.

Polaris, what have you done!?

Hey folks! This does last through January, you know?

How awesome, though. Look at Vanessa Tilley already through Task 10 (as I write this).

Yay! Everyone is doing so well.

And yes, I did kick myself. (Also, ballerinas can kick pretty high from doing all of those grand battements).
I don't know how I overlooked #7 completely. Yikes! But it's there now?

People can't sleep, knowing that there are still more tasks to be done. The urge to finish all the tasks is overwhelming. Haha! Good job, Tarma and Polaris!

SO UNFAIR!! To do a task, I have to do all the tasks before it, and I can't do just the tasks that I want to do! Just because I don't want to do Task 2's Sudoku, I can't do any other task!! :angry:

I feel a bit bad for going through them all so fast, but the tasks were an excellent anxiety busting distraction! Also, I'm a Ravenclaw, when I get stuck into something, I have to see it through.

Sorry you don't want to do the Soduku Kate, can you message Tarma or Polaris and see if you're allowed the password so you can move onto Task 3? I think part of the game was to go through each task at a time before you can move forward, kind of like the rooms at the end of Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone.

There will be tasks in First o' September, all kinds of tasks, and hopefully they are a little challenging! Yes, they need to be done in order. However, if you want to send Polaris or me a query (or post in that Task's room) asking for help to solve this, we will be happy to help you, Kate. But no, we're not 'giving away' passwords -- some effort is needed to get to the next task!

Greetings and Salutations Everyone! Just wondering if we request a hint, do we loose the amount of Hoots and Beans? :unsure: This is a great challenge and I may need a good nights rest before I start on my 3 day weekend. lol Good luck everyone... ((crossing my fingers)) :D

((Breathing a sigh of Relief!!)) I just turned in my last task and with out giving anything away, I am now ready to take on more puzzles. Thank you Polaris for the hint. I had stayed up all night struggling... lol and I still have one more day off for my weekend. This was definitely a great Ice breaker to the new years puzzles. I also learned how to do a new Numbers puzzle which I can say, almost drove me to Drink... lol but in the end, I learned how to do Numbrix and I Love it so much that I am playing them for fun like I do with Sudoku. Good Luck everyone. Cheers! :D

If I completed the task but can't figure out the password yet, where should I ask for clues? Do I message the administrator via HOL message, or in the respective forums? Thank you!

You are welcome to post in that Tasks subforum OR you may send Polaris or me a HOL PM, Kezia.

Your choice of what to do. I think that you might get a more specific response, though, if you send either her or me a HOL PM (here in this Forum).
