|Possible H_E communities
||[Feb. 22nd, 2006|08:58 am]
Just glancing through the FAQ/Main info of H_E, trying to decide which to join (if any)... so far, these strike my fancy:
I may just join Creevey Elite and that's it (as it looks that the other four are related to each other in one way or another)... We'll see.
QUILLS ELITE [quills_elite]
Pull out those textbooks and find that bottle of ink because it's time for your class assignments. Quills Elite is an essay community that covers your classes here at Hogwarts. The professors will be posting homework assignments based in their lectures posting in Runes Elite. The assignments will be graded, and students will receive owls with their final grade at the end of each term. Best of luck to each of you! The professors will be keeping you quite busy until exams, so don't miss the work. Once you get behind, you'll never catch up! Students are reminded that you are not allowed to compete in more than 1 assignment per group.
PROPHET ELITE [prophet_elite]
The latest issue of the Daily Prophet has just been released! Make sure you catch the latest stories written and images captured by the Prophet Writers. The Daily Prophet is the creative home for a few of Hogwarts Elite's greatest writers. Former first place contest winners are allowed to post here and earn galleons that add to the house totals. Winning a writing or fan art contest are the only way you'll be allowed to earn points in this fashion, so make sure your quills are ready and keep an eye out for the next round of contests at Quibbler and Quills Elite.
CREEVEY ELITE [creevey_elite]
Have you been staring at that blank piece of parchment, unable to gain the inspiration needed to write your latest assignment? Do you need something to take your mind off real life? How about procrastinating by writing a fan fiction for Creevey Elite? This is the section of Hogwarts Elite dedicated to your special writing or artistic talents. Post your very own fan art or fan fiction for everyone to see. There are also ongoing contests here, such as Fan Art Contests, Fictional Writing Challenges and Short Scroll Drabble Contests. Participating and winning will earn your house points, so don't miss out! When posting your original works, please don't forget to follow the system outlined in the Creevey Elite User Info.
QUIBBLER ELITE [quibbler_elite]
We flock to Quibbler Elite for the latest wacky theories and editorials. This site offers a place for our students to submit their own editorials for the entire school to view. Also, the Quibbler Editorial Elite is held here, where our Scroll Editors post an editorial that is open for students to discuss. It is a friendly way to disagree. A few contests are also hosted here, such as an Editorial Writing Contest, the Lost & Found Challenge and the Game Sheet Challenge. Still reading the Daily Prophet? You might just be the only one!
RUNES ELITE [runes_elite]
What is YOUR favourite subject? Do you have a thing for Potions? How about a natural talent at Charms? Or perhaps you are just here for the food? Whatever your style, you will find your fill of it here. The Professors of Hogwarts Elite will be posting their class lectures in this community, so have those quills and parchment ready! Assignments that correspond to the lectures will be posted in Quills Elite. Even if you don’t end up submitting some homework, the lectures might still be of interest to read. But the most important thing is to stay awake!
It's more fun to join all of them, trust me.
The only thing I'm worried about is if I have enough time for all of them (five communities! agh!).
You don't necessarily have to participate in every event/contest. Just join the subcommunities so you can see what pops up.
It's not as bad as it seems, for all of the communities. Most of them are challenge based, which means they aren't all that busy. There's a challenge posted, and then the voting/results. Diagon Elite and Prophet Elite are busy, but you don't have to do much with them, because you only have posting access to those if you are a shop owner or a prophet writer.
Really, the first week you're there, things will be a bit hectic, and then you'll sort through everything and it'll be fine. It also helps to make a separate filter for H_E stuff, and then you can check it out as it comes, or ignore it at your convenience.
One of the main reasons to join all the open communities is because then you'll be aware of things. You'll also be able to access the voting for contests, which is an easy way of getting house points.
Yay, you made it in! In case you were curious as to what my vote was, here it is:
No, dammit, stop squibbing! Argh!
This application was a little on the short side, but it still felt complete and well written and could you BE anymore Hufflepuff? I want you in the badger den NOW.
You seem like a fun person and you've read BSC. Mind if we friend each other?
sure, friend away :) aw- thanks for the vote. some hufflepuffs did squib me but I don't hold it against them. I think the only person I don't like is the ravenclaw (or is he slytherin?) who said I was a liar; anyways, he's not a hufflepuff.
RUNES ELITE//QUILLS ELITE - Are related. Teachers write lessons. The 'lecture' is posted in Runes Elite, and the 'assignment' is posted in quills elite. All assignments are then graded and earn points for your house.
QUIBBLER ELITE - mostly cool for Game Sheet Challenge (scrambled words and passages, time and accuracy based scoring) and Lost & Found challenge (Find a list of things, like a virtual scavenger hunt, again time and accuracy based)
PROPHET ELITE - limited people can post. Basically everything they post is graded, like runes/quills, and earns points. If you're interested in this one, you have to win something elsewhere.
CREEVEY ELITE - fanfiction and fanart. If you don't write/draw it, and don't like to look at it, no point in joining, other than so taht you can look at it if you want to. If you DO like writing/reading or drawing/looking at fan things, it's all for you.
Hope that helps. Oh, I'm a prof for Runes/Quills, it's my lesson that's up right now, if you're interested in seeing what it's about.
thanks for all the info :) I still feel overwhelmed.
I don't blame you. *G* Basically, I'd suggest just joining everything, and then if you find yourself not using it, either leave or remove it from your flist.
Would You Be Willing To Join HiH?
oh boy! another one? Once I get set with H_E and HH, I'll look into HiH. Right now, I feel a bit overwhelmed since I just started.
hehe, completely understandable. But once you get things settled, come check us out! We'd love to have you!
ooo.. you like Draco & Cho too? :) cool :)
mind if I ask - how did you find me? I was checking your user id, and besides draco_cho
, I didn't see any communities in common? or I could just be blind. :D
I found you through another sorting community you joined. You looked like a good applicant, so I thought I would ask. :)
