Hey guys! I was looking around at the common rooms, and theyre very bare... the only thing in there anymore is people introducing themselves.. so to get things active in there, i think we should have some sort of competition in them! I was thinking instead of having like every house do theyre own thing, we could do something were everyone competes as a house, and the house that has the most involvement can win points... maybe like a scavenger hunt or find as many of this as you can, and the house w/ the most stuff combined from all of the students responses can be the winner... what do you guys think? If you guys like the idea, give me some suggestions about what you think would be fun to have everyone look for, and then i will set it up w/ kaitlyn, and one of us will post in here what the rules and so on are to be. Then we'll go from there! In the meantime, kaitlyns gonna be posting another competition in the main community soon, but i think we'll be ok doing them both at the same time :)

And btw, im still lookin for another community to do our tri wizard competition with, as im having no luck finding anyone.. let me know if you guys come up w/ any good ideas!! If i cant find anything by the end of next week, ill be less busy w/ classes then, and ill start to work on an intercommunity competition w/ a triwizard type theme w/ kaitlyn and you guys :)

Hm.. If we can't find another community, we could just have one here, and each house pick a Champion, and have them do 4 Challenges. I think that would be good. Since there would be 4 people, the 4 challenges would be more fair. :)

I agree that that sounds like a really good idea.

I agree..the common rooms aren't doing so well *looks down in shame* I really like the scavenger hunt idea..and that whichever house finds the most wins. Hmmm..not sure exactly what to look for, but I'm thinking something related to HP GOF, things that are significant to the books maybe? And since it comes out soon...yeaaah, I'm kinda lacking in the creativity department, but I tried ;P

oh and I'm sorry, but I don't know what to do about the tr-wiz tourny..I could only think of castlehogwarts, but I figured you already checked with them, plus I think they had a tournament of that sort already :( Good luck, though!

Ya.. thats a good idea, i like the GOF idea :) we'll work off of that.. ya, there really arent that many communities to ask, bc alot of the ones ive checked are currently doing one already, or just finished one.. :S o well

I love the idea of us all doing the same competition at the same time. I was supposed to do one, as you know, but everything has been so hectic lately and Ive had no time for anything aymore! hah. The scavenger hunt thing a a great idea too...not to sure how it would work but Im sure we'd figure it out. And a whole GoF related competition would be amazing.

Not to sure about the whole Tri-Wizard Tournie thing...I'm sure you've checked with all the other communitesd that I can think of.

Things are kind of quiet indeed; sorry I'm replying this late, been awfully busy :) A competition would be great, I hope they'll wake up a bit... I don't know any more communities you could check :s sorry, I'm not being a great help

Sounds cool. Sorry for the not-so-active thing, I've had a lot of homework. (And sorry for replying late, like I said, the !@#@!! homework thing) You could try asking some GreatestJournal communitites, like HouseSorting. They're really active. Or Gold_Galleon or something, I dunno. (If you're wondering how I know about these... I have a really old GJ account that's my comm one.)

thats an idea, but im not as sure how well that would work, bc we would have to make a community to do the contest in that both our community and the other two communities can join, and im not sure how we would do that w/ a greatest journal, but its a good idea.. and i understand completely w/ the homework thing, i have a lot too :P
