  2. It's the start of our second year here, some of us have been active, some of us haven't *cough* (sorry) 😪 - If you're a second year, come in and post.
  3. We'll be looking for house prefects next year on our HarryPotter Community Fan Forum to help in the daily running. We hope to build up our fan base and make it the place to be for making friends and sharing our love of the HarryPotterSeries. Applications to start in 2019. Date TBC. House Prefect - Forum Moderator Well, here is a small guide to help some of you who are not familiar with the role. Remember you are the back bone of the forums and help keep things running smoothly. What is a forum moderator? A forum moderator oversees the communication activity of an Internet forum. He/She monitors the contributors (members) and makes decisions regarding content and the direction of threads. Moving discussions from one section to another to keep topics organized is also a common job for a forum moderator. If the forum becomes hostile or starts to move in the direction of personal attacks, the forum moderator usually has the discretion to lock the discussion to prevent heated, interchanges. He may also be able to hide discussions he deems unworthy of further discussion. Duties of a forum moderator may include moving discussions (threads/posts) to more appropriate sections, closing or locking threads based on dwindling interest or lack of recent activity of merely going off-topic, editing posts for clarity or content, and deleting threads. Thread deletion can either be temporary or permanent, depending on the wishes of the forum moderator, although you'll also have the power to hide posts/threads. If an abusive contributor refuses to cease unacceptable behavior, the forum moderator will the discretion to ban the user, but this is used as a last resort.
  4. The DARK ARTS FRIDAY 28th SEPTEMBER - SATURDAY 10th NOVEMBER Image: WB Studio Tour | https://www.wbstudiotour.co.uk Throughout the Hallowe’en season, fans of Death Eaters, daring duels and Hallowe'en feasts are invited to explore the darkness of the Wizarding World as we host a special feature dedicated to the Dark Arts. Returning this year, the iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, just as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Created by Head Propmaker on all the Harry Potter films, Pierre Bohanna, the pumpkins are modelled on those found in Hagrid’s pumpkin patch in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and are hand-carved by the Prop Making Department so no two are alike. The Great Hall tables will also be laden with a Hallowe’en feast of red apples, pumpkins and cauldrons of lollipops. After learning wand combat moves in an interactive experience with Wand Choreographer, Paul Harris, you are invited to take part in an exciting live duel with Death Eaters in the Studio Tour’s backlot. Demonstrating how a crowd scene like the Battle of Hogwarts would have been created during filming, you will test out your newly learned wand techniques as you are directed through a battle with Death Eaters who are storming the Hogwarts Bridge. As part of the feature, the original Death Eater costumes from the film series will be on display allowing you to see up close the intricate details of the embroidered robes and hand-painted masks. During production, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's followers each wore a unique mask, handmade by the Prop Making Department that was designed to reflect their personality. In addition to this, vats of slimy Troll snot, buckets of dribbling drool (of the three-headed dog variety) and pools of silvery unicorn blood will be showcased in the Tour allowing you to get hands-on and see exactly how the slime and goo was created. You will also be able to walk down a darker Diagon Alley as the lights are dimmed and the music becomes more foreboding on the wizarding shopping street. Dark Arts will run from Friday 28th September 2018 – Saturday 10th November 2018. Tickets must be pre-booked and all extra features are included in the ticket price.

  6. Hogwarts In The Snow: Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - Taking place from Saturday November 16 2018 until Sunday January 26 2019 The festive transformation will begin in the Great Hall, where the stage will again be decorated as it was for the iconic Yule Ball. As seen in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the celebration of the Triwizard Tournament saw every detail of the Great Hall covered in shimmering silver, dripping icicles and sparkling snow. You will get a taster of this incredible set dress as the top section of the Great Hall will be transformed with snow-covered Christmas trees, icicles and an orchestra of magical instruments that have been painted by the Prop-Making Department to match the silver of the Yule Ball. Taking place from Saturday November 16 until Sunday January 26 In addition to the Yule Ball decoration, The Great Hall will be lined with Christmas trees and the long dining tables will be dressed as they were for seasonal feasts at Hogwarts with prop versions of roast turkeys, hams studded with cherries and even Christmas puddings surrounded by real flames. As part of the Hogwarts in the Snow feature, many of the iconic sets housed at the Studio Tour will receive a festive makeover. The Gryffindor Common Room and Boys’ Dormitory will be decorated with the original props including handmade Christmas cards, some of which were created by the cast members during production. Fireplaces throughout the Studio Tour (including those in the Leaky Cauldron and Great Hall) will be ‘lit’ with special effects fire, created by John Richardson and the SFX team using a combination of water vapour and lighting effects. The Hogwarts castle model will be transformed with a layer of filmmaking snow. During filming, a member of the crew climbed aboard an elevated work platform and sprinkled the ‘snow’ mixture of granulated paper and grains of salt onto the model by hand with a sieve – like dusting sugar onto a cake. The same process will be used at the Studio Tour this November. You will even be able to touch samples of the different types of ‘snow’ used during production, each selected for its ability to float like falling snow, crunch under foot or glisten in the light like ice. Hogwarts in the Snow will run from Saturday 16th November – Sunday 26th January 2019. Tickets must be pre-booked, and all extra features are included in the ticket price.

That's right! Percy Weasely would be so proud. You, too, could attain that coveted Prefect's badge and earn entry into the exclusive Prefect's bathroom.
