Happy Birthday Harry Potter (and J. K. Rowling)!

Today we say Happy Birthday to Harry Potter (for those of you who don't live in England it's already July 31st there).

In addition to this wonderful event I'd like to mention that earlier this year was Hogwarts Live's ten year (yes, that's right TEN YEARS!) anniversary.

As a special treat to all of you we are releasing some changes to the site. If that wasn't already enough we're doing a Double Donation Day and multiple candy raffles!

Double Donation Day means you get double the points when you donate to HL and the candy raffles are really great. Go check them out! ^^

I'd like to specifically call out Juan, Pam, all our staff and testers for helping get these changes done and ready for live.

Some of these new changes to the site are:
EIGHT new specialties, all based on the Harry Potter universe.
Knight Bus, which is located under Travel, for a few gems allows you to travel without being getting stopped by pesky waylays, but you might get a negative buff.
Honeydukes, where you can buy a delicious treat, but be careful you might not like what you eat!

Various modules were also fixed.

Please petition any bugs found, anyone caught abusing these will be punished.

Happy Birthday!

And about the changes, well some of them are great like the Knight Bus and the Orange Candles, also Honeydukes is fun, this far I have got 10 gems, 5 gems, 5 turns, 'Cloud 9' Buff in the forest... Sometimes they don't give anything. But I would recommend that you buy something there after you have spent all your forest turns because an accident *may* occur and you *may* lose them all. Just sayin'.
The main problem is in the chat. First, the preview has gone, which isn't that big of a deal, but the real bug is that now the chat isn't auto-updating. You have to refresh on and on to see the new posts, and just like when you post, the whole page refreshes. I hope this will be fixed by the awesome staff, and it will be just like before. But then again maybe I'm the only one with the problem? Is anyone else having this problem?

quite annoyed that no system blog message owl was sent out alerting me of the double donation day only randomly found out about the raffles when I clicked on them.

Happy Birthday Harry!!!


I'm quite happy to see the Knight Bus added and Candy raffle is going on. (only found this out by clicking around)

As for the double donation event, is this still going on or is it over? there was no owl, or message in hogwarts, ministry, or ottery st. catchpole about it.

P.S. Will you be posting all the changes and updates that have or will be going on?

Ok I'm now mad as heck!!! I only saw the Bean Jackpot Raffle in Candy Raffle. Didn't know there were other raffles going on. So rude!!!

Nice to get an owl on the day the raffle ends instead of at the beginning of the raffles.

When will the next raffles begin?? Being as patient as I can but you know...

I read a book called Who Is J.K. Rowling? I found out J.K.'s real name;
It's Joanne Katherine Rowling, she made it J.K. for short because when boys would read this they wouldn't say things like "Eww, this was made by a woman!"
