I was wondering whether or not anyone would like to have a Great Hall for the community. This would be a place any non-sorting business would take place. For example.. Chit-Chat amoung the houses, challenges, to show off your icons, and any other important news I have to inform you guys of.
Please vote in this poll so I get an idea on what YOU guys want.
[EDIT]: Poll taken down.
I've decided not to make a sub-community for non-sorting discussion. My fear is that if this happens people will get sorted then move directly to that community and never sort again.
So I don't see it happening in the very near future.
Over at the teacher's lounge there was some discussion about two new rules that we feel need to be put into effect.
From now on.. I won't be stamping people until 24 hours of when their application was submitted to the community. So please no one complaining about how long they have to wait.
The other new thing that's going to be put into effect is the Squib option. From here out anyone you feel is trying to butter up their application so they get into a certain house.. You can refuse to give them the satisfaction and just label them as a Squib.
I will be monitoring this so try not to get it out of hand.
The Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff common rooms still needs a make-over. Try to get this done ASAP.
I was wondering if anyone else was planning on participating in the Mini contest I put out? If not.. I'm just going to release the results and work on the larger contest that your lovely teachers have been throwing out suggestions for.
I'm surprised that none of us actually thought of this before, but perhaps it would be easier to get around for members of the different houses if we added the common rooms and teachers lounge to the friends list on this community. Then we could access from the userinfo page rather than having to dig through past entries for a link or having to trudge back to our own userinfo pages. Or we could use one of those LJ overrides that I've seen to add more links at the top of your page so we could link direct from the journal.
And this is just a little suggestion in case anyone knows some semi-advanced HTML, we might be able to rig the house banners on the userinfo page to link to the respective common rooms.
Once again, just suggesting this considering that I noticed it was rather tiresome to jump back and forth between communities and our own journals.
