Happy eleventh birthday, PW!

Our little RP site is now old enough to start receive its Hogwarts letter in the mail, board the Hogwarts Express for the first time, and even receive a wonky looking (but lovingly made) pink cake from Hagrid. Help us celebrate PW's birthday by checking out our birthday forums, which will be open until Feb 21st! Go ahead, start some threads, take some strolls through memory lane, and PARTY!

Thanks to all of you who have stuck around with the board for so many years, and to those of you who are just checking us out for the first time. Without your energy and creativity, we wouldn't have anywhere near the longevity and wild plots we have now. Thanks members! This party is for you! hug.gif dirol.gif yahoo.gif wizard.gif

What is with the weather all of a sudden? Hogwarts and Hogsmeade are experiencing a strange cloud over them at the moment. Feel free to include this phenomenon in your threads and help try to figure out the mystery!

Hello, hello!

With our birthday celebrations coming to a close, here's a list of winners (and answer key for those of you who came close!) to the birthday challenges. If you see your name listed below on one of the lists, you are welcome to add in your prize (a birthday bragging graphic!) into your signature until the start of PW 120. This is an addition to the 500x200 limit we usually have on signature graphics. You're welcome to add the graphics in yourselves, and welcome to store them in your character libraries afterwards. handjive.gif

Though the challenges themselves will be CLOSED, the birthday forums (and the graphic making contest) will remain open for one additional day to play and create! Thanks for celebrating a wonderful 11th birthday with us! wizard.gif

We will leave the riddles up for an additional day for members to read through and make their way through the hunt. Thanks so much to all the members who helped put the list back together! Many of you left me an additional reminder: DON'T FORGET THE KEYS. Thanks for the advice! I'd hate to get locked out of the staff mansion with all my groceries! I, and the other staff, will definitely have to keep this advice in mind as we move forward. Perhaps you ought to keep this in mind as well. wink2.gif

Answer key:

1. Nowadays, students need to make 20 posts a term in order to progress to the next year at Hogwarts. When the board began, what did students have to do instead?

Students had to complete actual homework assignments and receive passing grades!

2. Once upon a time, we DID kill off some students. What were the names of the 9 students killed?

Teague Montague
Naiara Mallory
Xavier Wyse
Andres Regent
Perry Winsome
Merrick Falke
Riley Behan
Kelli Maddox
Starshine Patches

3. What character restarted the Order of the Phoenix and served as secret keeper until his death?

Dennis Creevey

4. What three canon surnames were once allowed for characters to register as?
Longbottom, Potter, Weasley

5. True or False: Once upon a time, you were required to post questions in the Ask the Staff forum IC only.

True!

6. How were a character's magical strength, available currency, and Hogwarts house determined when the board first began? (ie, what did we use to determine this?)

Everything was based on a computer generator on the board. This was called the Dynamic Engine, and members would enter in a code (for example, {SORT}) and the board would automatically sort them! This was NOT determined by the staff and NOT randomly chosen by the staff.

7. Prior to the rise of the Death Eaters, there was another group of baddies on board. What were they called, and what was their symbol?
The Cadena, whose symbol was a broken chain.

8. Who were the four students chosen for the FIRST Quadwizard Tournament (in PW canon)?

Willow Taggart, Darius Quinn, Reira Everard, Logan Gray

9. The last time Britain hosted the Quidditch World Cup, they had a visit from a magical creature. What kind of creature was it?

Chimera

10. During the EoW plot arc, what was the name of the guardian of Hallowed Hill?

Merlin's Gnome

11. During the last battle, how were those NOT already in hiding able to arrive at the Forest of Havencroft to join the fight?

An SOS article was sent out by the Ashes. This particular article was a portkey that could be activated by repeating the phrase 'phoenixrising' three times.

12. True or False: The gender ratio in the board's early days was so skewed, handlers who already had characters in the AW were allowed to create male characters to join the AW directly.

True!

13. True or False: In the early days of the board, one had to apply for their apparition license IC, and earned a badge on their side panel for it.
True!

14. True or False: When Quests first became part of the board, students could sign up to do a quest, but it was randomly assigned to them by a member of the staff.
True!

15. True or False: In the early days of the board, adults were randomly selected into jobs when they applied for AW in the Shops, Ministry, and Mungo's to keep work areas even.

False!
