4 Years Ago Today...

...two very special people tied the knot in Real Lifeâ„¢. They met and fell in love right here on HogwartsLive.

May the memories you cherish
And the joys that you recall
Help make this anniversary day
Your very best of all,

And may these truly happy years
Of seeing dreams come true
Be a promise of still greater joy
In the years ahead of you!

Happy Anniversary, Edmund and SerenityRose!!

Please help save half a million children in Haiti - Donate to UNICEF

The child survivors of Haiti's brutal earthquake represent an entire generation. Many were orphaned. Countless lost friends and family. Their schools and homes--destroyed.

Give now and give the child survivors in Haiti essential nutritional supplies, clean water and vaccines, school-in-a-box kits, and increased child-protection services.

Reconstruction in Haiti means nothing if these children don't make it.

If you'd like to make a donation to this cause I will give you donator points in exchange for doing so. Make a donation on UNICEF's secure online form by clicking here
. Please note you will need to provide me with a receipt of your donation to receive donator points.

Alternatively, you may owl or email me, , your PayPal transaction number after making a donation via the "PayPal Site Admin" button and I'll add your funds to my next donation to UNICEF at the end of July. Keep in mind this method is not tax deductible as is the case when you use UNICEF's official form

Haiti's children still need your help. And with the hurricane season ahead, they now face increased risk of disease.

There are also other ways to support UNICEF aside from donating, please visit: UNICEF's Other Ways to Give Page.

Personal Attacks

A reminder of the rule being some have seem to forgotten lately:
Personal attacks(bringing someones real life into it) and insulting remarks should be kept off the public channels such as the forums and the chats.

This means when you are sitting there accusing people of being pedophiles and bringing their RL into the chats, you are breaking said rule. People keep making this accusation toward others lately (not even directed at just one person) without having any proof to back the claim up. If you had proof, you should be reporting it to the police not trying to be a vigilante and take the situation upon yourself.

Consider this your only warning, if you make this kind of accusation against anyone in chat you'll be muted for it, without prior warning. A few players already have been.


When signing up you are agreeing you the sites Terms Of Use(http://www.wizards.pro/terms-of-use). Number three tells how you must be at least thirteen to register on this site. A lot of players have ignored this while signing up lately and have ended up banned because of it. We're not banning people you may have become friends with to be mean, but because its not legal for them to be on here.

LOLCat April Fool's Text

Even though it is not April Fool's Day for everyone yet, the timezone the server is in it is April Fool's Day, so for the next 24 hours you get to be graced by Danilo's LOLCat April Fool's Prank. =P

Edit: Danilo removed the option to turn it off. (Cause I'm evil! Mwuahaha! --Headmaster)

Edit 2: Special LOLcat has been added to the pet shop for one day!

Recent Crash and Owl Post

The site has been having a few issues these past couple of days as most of you have been able to tell. The main issue was that the Outbox in your Owl Post was not working correctly. A few of you were stuck in an endless badnav, as well.

In order to correct this, Danilo had to murder all the old owls (his words ;) ) but our fresh new stock should hopefully prove to be more obedient :)

Thanks for playing and if you notice anything else out of sorts, please petition.

UPDATE: Membership to the Deatheaters and Order of the Phoenix modules were both reset. Danilo has made it that each will cost a set number of gems (10) rather than taking half of your total amount. We realize that some players have ultimately lost gems because of the membership reset, but there's no way to retrieve the data of past membership and we apologize for that.


REPOST: How To Avoid Bad Navs

Repost of this that I posted before and part of one Witchy posted also.

Many of you are getting bad navs, and lately I've noticed a lot are user errors. Here are a few things that cause bad navs:
1.) Refreshing your page with your browsers refresh button. If you need to refresh, you the refresh under chats.
2.) Playing in multiple windows(or tabs). You don't need to chat and level at the same time.
3.) Clicking the back button on your browser. It won't bring you back to your previous page, so its pointless to click.
4.) Timing out and logging back in during a special/event. Also, if you die in PVP and time out before clicking Daily News, you'll end up being killed again and losing experience again when you log back in.
5.) Typing or pasting the URL instead of clicking.
6.) Pressing F5 or Ctrl R(which will refresh the page) can cause them too.
7.) Clicking something before a page is fully loaded.

These are some things that cause it so avoid doing them. Sometimes it can be the code itself, but a lot of petitions lately are user caused errors.

If you have bad navs you cannot get off of, petition right away. Do not sit there and wait days and then send rude petitions because of it. If you choose to wait to petition, that is not our fault do not take it out on us.

PETITION ONLY ONCE. Petitioning more just takes us longer to get to fixing because we have to sit there and close all your petitions. We'll get to it when we get on.

Do not get your friends to petition if you are stuck.
Do not owl staffers if you are stuck.
Do not get your friends to owl staffers if you are stuck.
Do not IM staffers if you are stuck.
Do not get your friends to IM staffers if you are stuck.

Filter Evasion Clarification

Using slang terms and words that are harmless in their REAL meaning to get around filtered words IS filter evasion. If you do this you will be warned. We're not going to filter ever single slang term/harmless word you try to make inappropriate in meaning. So if you use it after the first you will be warned again, then it will lead to a mute if you keep it up just like it would with normal filter evasion.

Just because words are not on the filter doesn't mean they are ok to use. This is a PG-13 site, use your head and think about which words you shouldn't use in chats.

P.S.: Cybering is NOT allowed in dwellings. I wouldn't suggest doing it on here period because you don't know how old people are and they can lie about their ages.
