Rules Only one person turns it in, everyone will be rewarded the same It must have an identifiable beginning, middle, and end. If there is less than 1 page per character, Galleons will be awarded proportionate to what was achieved (less than 100). If there are more than 1.5 pages per character, Galleons will be awarded proportionate to what was achieved (more than 100). Form Character Names: HERE Link to Thread: Link to your RP here
  2. House Points = Galleons Do you have a student character? Are you earning House Points? Well if you are, use the form below to earn bonus galleons at a 1 to 1 ratio for every house point you earn! Form Character Name: HERE Link to Points Submission Post: Link to the exact post in the House Points Thread where you were awarded.
  3. Post Count Contest Earn all the extra rewards when you post excessively throughout the month of February! The top 5 posters will be awarded 100 Galleons! How does it work? Create a post below and use it as a tracker of sorts. Each time you post come back to your post here and link to your thread. Keep a running numeric tab for each post, highlight the number, and link it using the "Link" button at the top of the text editor to keep the thread from getting too long with direct links posted to the thread. A post must have at least 100 words to qualify. The contest ends at 11:59pm Arizona time on Leap Day! So get to posting!
  4. Roleplay Challenge A Roleplay Challenge is a unique opportunity to earn house points. In essence, you will pick a prompt from the list below and complete a roleplay based upon it. Anyone who participates in the roleplay is eligible for points (even if they aren't in this house), but only one member of the roleplay may submit it for review. Below are the rules you must abide by in order for your roleplay to qualify. You may complete any number of challenges in a term, but you may only complete each challenge once. So if you've already done #1, you may do #2 to #100 and receive house points, but if you may not receive house points for #1 a second time. Each post is worth 5 galleons, and any member of the roleplay may earn galleons. There must be a minimum of 10 posts in the roleplay to qualify, but there is no maximum. The roleplay must have an identifiable beginning, middle, and end. A post only counts if it has at least 5 sentences. Other contests may overlap your posts, and they may added into existing roleplays, but they must clearly be labeled "Galloping Galleons Roleplay Challenge" and include the challenge number in each participating post. You must use the form below to turn in your challenge. Completion Form: Characters in the Roleplay: (list each character involved) Total Posts: Roleplay Challenge #: Link to First Post: Roleplay Challenge List 1) Do something unexpected 2) Create a work of art 3) Propose to someone 4) Buy someone 12 pairs of gloves 5) Celebrate St. Oswald's Day 6) Mistake someone for someone else 7) Be the victim of a wayward love potion 8) Throw a party 9) Find a Valentine 10) Get rejected as a Valentine 11) Be harassed by a singing cupid for the wrong person 12) Give someone a flower 13) Discuss leap year traditions 14) Share a cup of hot chocolate with a stranger 15) Make a new friend 16) Dance 17) Kiss someone for the first time 18) Break someone's heart 19) Misunderstand what a leap year is 20) Foretell suffering for someone 21) Find Spiritual Awakening 22) Turn a tradition upside down 23) Set a goal for this year 24) Fall asleep in public 25) Share something personal 26) Show some generosity 27) Fall victim to a rogue love potion gone awry 28) Reminisce about the past 29) Discuss Destiny

    The Premise Once every 4 years, during the month of February, the WWN staff decides to be exceptionally generous with our Galleons. During this event, you may complete the tasks in this forum in any of the in character forums. Once you've completed them, post in the appropriate thread in this forum, and we'll make sure you get your extra galleons. It's that simple!
  6. Regarding Personal Plots Personal Plots are things that occur on a character level. They are things that do not have an impact on the wizarding world as a whole, but certainly impact your character's life. These can be things like: Relationship Drama A singular incident of crime Discipline for an action at school Minor prophecies that only impact 1 character or a family etc. These are just a few examples but there are many different types of personal plots out there. What Isn't Appropriate There are many things out there that you can do for your personal plots. However there are definitely just as many things that wouldn't be considered appropriate. These are things that wouldn't impact just you, but the entire community as a whole. Some examples of this include: Serial killers Major Prophecies that impact the whole community, anything with a "Chosen One" Attacks on major places in Harry Potter canon (i.e. Hogwarts, Ollivanders, Flourish and Blotts, etc.) etc. Again, these are just some examples, and not all the possibilities that exist. A good rule of thumb to figure out whether it's appropriate or not is: "Does this impact just my character and those I'm writing with directly?", "Would this make major headlines or otherwise ensue panic or happiness on a massive scale?". If the answer to either of those is yes--or if staff feels it is "yes"--then it's probably not something that is appropriate to do on an individual scale. You could, however, talk to staff about working it into the site plot so that you could participate in it down the road. Why It's Like This We are trying to create a highly interactive site where you and your ideas can shape what happens. However, we can't please everyone at once and have 12 "Chosen Ones" at any given time. That would be very inconsistent. We like to be consistent in our site content. This means that if something major is occurring, like a massive crime spree or "chosen one" type scenario, that would impact all of our writers, not just you. Because that would be in the headlines. That would be something that caused ripples and waves and would change how characters interact with one another; the same way that the active site plot will impact all of them. By joining our site, our members agree to the plot and the setting of our world. However, they have not agreed to the ideas of other writers necessarily. In order to maintain a setting that everyone agrees to, we cannot allow members to have major plots that impact the site as a whole because members may not agree with any plot proposed by other members and then staff is left with the terrible job of choosing a side. Should I Ask the Staff? The questions mentioned in the earlier section should help you keep yourself from needing to talk to staff. However, if you're still uncertain you're welcome to ask @ ★Lilythe if it would be appropriate. As canon coordinator and loremaster for the site, this is her area of site responsibility. We ask that you accept her answer, with the understanding that she will do her best to figure out a way to accommodate any request that is reasonable.
  7. How Students Get Invited to Schools Each of the wizarding world schools has their own unique way of letting their students know that they will be attending. We are all familiar with Harry getting his letter from Hogwarts, but students in other countries--and indeed even of different blood status--are introduced to their school very differently. Hogwarts Purebloods Letter from the Deputy Headmaster of Hogwarts informing them of their acceptance and school supplies. Unless orphaned and without other family to live with, in which case they will receive a visit at the orphanage. Halfbloods Letter from the Deputy Headmaster of Hogwarts informing them of their acceptance and school supplies. In cases where the magical parent has passed on and the muggle (or orphanage) the student lives with will receive an in-home visit. Muggleborns Receive an in-home visit from the headmaster so that they can explain to parents what is going on. Ilvermorny Ilvermorny's recruitment is currently unknown in canon, so the following is a site canon that we intend to use until such time that JK Rowling creates it.

It appears as they sleep and leaves a token, usually an inscribed stone, found in the child's hand upon waking.
