July 19, 2017, 09:02:50 PM by Albus Dumbledore
Hey y'all!

I have some exciting news today. Magical Hogwarts is officially on discord! If you'd like to chat with other MHers, but don't want to rely on skype, discord is for you. There are a few ways you can access the server: via MH's chat (which can be accessed here or via the MH Chat button on the menu), through discord's website (here), there's a Mac OS app if you're an apple user, and there are apps for iPhone and android.

If you're interested in joining, you can search our server (Magical Hogwarts) or send @Fee a PM and she'll send you an invite.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or send Fee a PM.

xx [Announcement] Update to Photobucket's ToS + future of image hosting

July 03, 2017, 06:22:08 PM by Fee
Hey guys! As most of you know, Photobucket has updated their Terms of Service and has started breaking images and disabling third-party hosting. The administration recommends that you save your Photobucket images as soon as possible, as you may have to pay to get access to them soon, as per their ToS.

Fortunately, the administration has decided that we will be purchasing a separate domain and a CDN, and will be creating our own image-hosting site, just for MH members. However, it isn't cheap to do this. We've estimated that the yearly costs will be around $130, and while many of the admins have already donated to the cause, we'd appreciate any additional help we can get. There is a donation button at the bottom of the sidebar, and if you are interested in donating, we'd greatly appreciate it! All donators, no matter how much or how little you donate, will receive a special donator badge and usergroup tag, and all members who've donated will be mentioned on the new image-hosting site.

If you have any questions, you can ask them here or direct them to any admin.

~ Fee

xx [Announcement] August Mini Plots!

June 22, 2017, 01:20:01 AM by Samm

Mini Plots are events that your character can get involved in all around the world. Some are school specific, and others are for all of the players to get involved in. Details are left open to interpretation so you can use your imagination to make it your own! Post [Mini Plot] in your thread title and post the thread link here! FPP points and other prizes will be given to drivers who participate.

Hogwarts, Durmstrang, Beauxbatons, Mahoutokoro, & Ilvermorny
The International Summer School program continues for another month in the beautiful Caribbean location on Spider Island. Academy Anansi is open to all students for one more month and offers a range of classes for Remedial and Advanced students and general courses for any wishing to further their magical knowledge. Scholarships are available for those with need. Students attending the Academy Anansi are permitted to visit home and other parts of the world, but only during the weekends with proper supervision. Please see this board for more information on what fun new activities will be happening this month.

Worldwide: Magical Geocaching
At the start of each century, wizards all over the world participate in the Summer Search, where they seek out hidden keepsakes left by those a hundred years ago, and in turn leaving something for the next century's magical geocachers. For interested participants, stop by a local shop to pick up a geocache rune. Each rune will hint at the location of a nearby geocache for you to find, so underage wizards who cannot use their wands can participate. Happy hunting!
