Comments: I really admire the dedication you show towards keeping Ravenclaw a warm, vibrant place (and the hourglass full of sapphires) and I think your prioritising of the experience of new students is excellent. I would have loved to hear more about your practical ideas of how to broaden this out so it could be something worked on by lots of HOLers. Your website is crisp and well put together (though I found the initial dark blue colour slightly jarring and would have preferred a paler one). It would have been good to see more about you and your HOL journey; 3 pages (one of which is just for fun) is a little sparse.

Judge Fidget
Score: 81
Comments: I loved that you chose a blog format, it feels so personal which give you a "just like us" feel. A change in background aside from the plain white would be nice. Working to become Prefect is an admirable goal, and it looks like you're definitely on your way to achieving that!

Judge Chicken BokBok
Score: 85
Comments: I admire the initiative with greeting new members. We used to have the First Friends, maybe that should return. I give you props for the efforts in building the website. It’s not an easy task to do.

Judge Catnip
Score: 75
Comments: I love that you are so active and are doing a lot for your house and all of HOL. The puzzles on your blog were a nice touch. Maybe you could have made it more appealing by choosing a Nice background instead of a solid blue.


Judge Nickleby Duckling

Score: 88
Comments: Well done! Love your initiative of sending newbies a message and inviting them to IRC! That should really work to involve them more. Your website was well structured and easy to navigate, although I feel you could still tell us more about yourself and your interests. Your fun facts were great!

Comments: I seriously loved the quality of your answers. You are one of the contestants who has not only listened to the judge’s feedback but incorporated it into how you do things and that is something I deeply appreciate. I felt you could have taken more care when placing the photos on your website and perhaps spread them out over several pages or sections. For a first attempt though, it’s a very good try.

Judge Fidget
Score: 80
Comments: I like that you included a link to HOL but I would have loved to see your website divided into pages instead of all on one page, but I understand your frustration with creating it! I'm glad you are doing so much to help HOL become a "home away from home" to others too!

Judge Chicken BokBok
Score: 90
Comments: First and for most I loved the pictures on your website. The convention pictures are so awesome, thanks for sharing them. Your answers were great and well thought out.

Judge Catnip
Score: 75
Comments: Your website turned out great, even if this was a first time. I liked the photos, but it would have been great to see some sort of blog or information on there. As for the Q&A part: you are involved in so many things in HOL, that is something I can only praise.


Judge Nickleby Duckling

Score: 80
Comments: I really like how complete your answers are, and I like the fact that HOL continues to surprise you. I only wish you could propose something different instead of saying that it continues doing activities. I praise you for facing the challenge of doing a website, something you weren’t familiar with, and I’m glad you enjoyed the experience, although I wished you could explain a little bit more and integrate more sections instead of doing a collection of images, which were great by the way!

Comments: The honesty of your answers stood out for me and I feel that you’ve really improved on your approachability from previous rounds. I also thought your reasons were well supported and highly logical. I liked the sleek simplicity of your website but felt you could have done a better job of matching the quality of the images and making all text equally legible as both distracted and detracted from the content.

Judge Fidget
Score: 82
Comments: You did pretty well on your website; I loved that you incorporated previous rounds' items in it, though the dark purple font is hard to read with your background. Do you have other suggestions on improving sorting then?

Judge Chicken BokBok
Score: 85
Comments: The website is crisp and clean, which is great. Like others have noted, these answers give you a more approachable vibe, which is what we as judges look for.

Judge Catnip
Score: 70
Comments: Awesome website. Nice layout. Your answers are getting a bit predictable though. It would be great to see more of you than Quidditch...


Judge Nickleby Duckling

Score: 70
Comments: I like that your answers show your ambitions towards your House and HOL. Your website was good, but I wish you could show us something more than your previous submissions for this competition.

Comments: Your website is absolutely wonderful: easy to navigate, contains a compelling mixture of new and existing content and represents a perfect balance of graphics and words. Your answers could do with some work but I respect the fact that you’re aware of this and are striving to improve.

Judge Fidget
Score: 90
Comments: First, I second Wizard Card #100! I'm interested in your ideas for bringing back our stray members. I love that your website had a walk-through of the pages, but the menu was always available to just go where you want. My favorite parts were the wordsearch and the Marauder's Map link to your HOL profile! Very well done!

Judge Chicken BokBok
Score: 95
Comments: Your website was amazing. I loved how you put so many personal touches on it. I also liked your honest answers. You don’t need to hold positions in HOL in order to be “someone” here. That’s the beauty of it, everyone is wonderful as is.

Judge Catnip
Score: 85
Comments: Absolutely lovely website. The layout, the different things on there, the pictures... I love it. I think you could have answered some of the questions a bit better, even though you haven't any positions, you could have talked about what position you would like for example.


Judge Nickleby Duckling

Score: 90
Comments: I like that you talk about HOL to the people that surround you, that is a good way to make people interested and join! Your answers were good but you could develop more some of them. On the other hand, your website looks amazing! It was a kind idea to make signatures for your fellow Gryffindors so they can use them! I love your art and the general look of your website! Congratulations!

Comments: I was really struck by the quality of your website. It’s visually pleasing, tells us what we need to know and offers some extra detail about you. I appreciated how scrupulous you were about answering the activity and improvement questions: my only disappointment was that you didn’t put as much thought into the other questions.

Judge Fidget
Score: 79
Comments: I'd like to hear more about your community service outside of your House as well as your future plans and any ideas for how the main site can be updated. We're coming down to the wire, we want to hear more! Your site looks great! The "My Collections button doesn't seem to work, it just takes me to your homepage, but I love that you included previous rounds' items and your talents page was really cool!

Judge Catnip

Comments: Although your answers to the questions were answered very briefly, the information on your website made very much up for it. You could have made it even better by playing with the font and backgrounds.


Judge Nickleby Duckling

Score: 85
Comments: Good to know that you are trying to participate in all House activities! You say you try to convince newbies to stay in HOL, but how do you do that? It would be good to describe that and some other questions that were missing explanation. Regarding your website, I really loved it! It was very personal, informative, well designed and easy to navigate. Well done!!

Comments: Your answers were exemplary in their length and quality. Your dedication to HOL and your house is admirable; I also appreciated your concrete suggestions for the future of our community and the fact that you have put practical thought into the matter. Your website is beautiful and easily navigated (especially the music section). The only draw-back is that the quality of images is very inconsistent and I’d like to have seen a more cohesive selection.

Judge Fidget
Score: 83
Comments: I really enjoyed your photography slideshow, Shilohbowls sound amazing! Do you have any suggestions on how to "get rid of the drama?" It is often hard to make clear our intentions through written (read: typed) words (sarcasm, for instance) and I know that contributes to drama for sure. But how do we prevent it?

Comments: Do you sleep? Music, Photography, all those books, when do you have the time? Everything was amazing as usual. Loved your Christmas song too!

Comments: Your answers are very complete as usual so thanks for your effort. Your website was simple but the content of it was amazing! I loved your collection of photos. It is a very creative idea to portray books under different settings that relate to the content of the book. Thanks for sharing new songs, you are very talented!

That was super original, and you really know how to show your personality!

Comments: I thoroughly enjoyed your answers and can find no fault in them. I get the strong impression of an active, empathetic person who people could certainly take notes from. I deeply admire you for constructing your website yourself from scratch and with little to no experience. The overall effect is very pleasing (with the text and colour schemes meshing well), though all the scrolling necessary to view it on a small screen detracted slightly (particularly in terms of photos).

Comments: I really appreciate your candid discussion of how you balance, or attempt to balance, RL and HOL. Your website is really appealing: I especially love the strong composition and warm, earthy tones. The Arts and Crafts section is perhaps my favourite as it gives me a chance to see your talent in the context of a full costume. The only thing that lets it down are the watermarks on the front page image.

Judge Fidget
Score: 89
Comments: It's good to recognize what you can or can't do, so that nothing falls through the cracks. You have a beautifully coherent website, I love your costumes! A note on your home page photo, you should spend some time finding ones that are free to use rather than the ones that have watermarks on them.
