A Special Holiday Surprise

The Hogwarts Live staff and I worked very hard to release a new version of HL right before Christmas as it is a special time in the Harry Potter books.

There are some new additions such as the ability to ignore users in chat; and then there are some old features that have been fixed and returned to the game such as the marriage system.

Also please remember to thank each and every one of the staff for their hard work testing the new codebase. They made sure everything was working so you all could continue to enjoy an uninterrupted gaming experience.

If you or anyone else discovers a bug or exploit please report it right away via the Petition for Help link on the top right hand side of the page. The first person to report a vulnerability and not abuse it thereafter or multiple times prior shall receive a reward in the form of donator points.

Wishing you all some very happy holidays!

A note on the Ignore Chat Users function...

It's pretty self-explanatory on how to ignore/unignore people (once you click the link on the left) so I'm not going to explain that part. But there have been a lot of questions on how it works, so here's an explanation for that:

When you Ignore a person, you can no longer see any of their posts, but they can still see yours.

No, they do not get notified of it. Yes, you can unignore them.

It does not affect the Owl Post so they can still send you owls. If you want to ignore them there too, then use the Ignore feature in there. Directions are in the FAQ if you do not know how.

If you are ignoring a user in chat, then please actually ignore them. Don't sit there and talk about them or refer to them or otherwise try to instigate anything or cause drama.

Staff cannot ignore anyone, and no one can ignore staff. No matter how much you (or us ;) ) may want to.

I've wanted an ignore button for a very long time. It's useful if there's no staff around to mute cyber bullies.

Why don't we have Dwellings anymore?

We still have dwellings. They just don't become available to buy until you are a Witch (7 VEs, flat), Goddess (50 VEs, shack), and Supreme (100 VEs, castle).

OK, thanks for clearing that up.
