Hello all! This is Morri, your erstwhile Headmistress. I hope you're all enjoying the site.
First, I wanted to apologize for the outage yesterday. We had a password issue that was quickly fixed by Zorac, thankfully.
Now on to the issue at hand. As many of you are no doubt aware, the 2nd major Harry Potter 'convention' for adults is happening this coming October in Salem, MA. I will be there as I am working for TWH and I am also presenting on a panel (which I did at Nimbus as well, if any of you were there). I really hope that if you haven't already signed up to go to TWH, you check it out
, because it's going to be a great time! I'd certainly love to meet and talk to some of you.
Now, at Nimbus 2003, RS.org sponsored one of the programming events, and that's part of the reason I'd like to continue the tradition. In addition, TWH is doing something extra special in that every fandom entity that sponsors something will also have a 'bid' in for a space on the 'new' Fandomopoly. When the original game was designed by Cygnus, RS.org won the 'Park Place' space next to FictionAlley's 'Boardwalk' space by a Livejournal vote. The icon I use here is an image from that original RS gamecard. But it's not going to be so easy to get on the board this time, I'm afraid.
We can do a sponsorship for as little as $50, however, that won't get us much on Fandomopoly. The total amount we send in is what will get us a place, and the higher the amount, the better our chance for a good spot on the gameboard. And that's where you all come in.
I know it sounds cliched to say "If every person reading this donates a dollar, we can do it" but it's absolutely true. But I know not everyone can and I understand that. So please, if you can donate anything to the cause, please click on the banner below. Tell your friends. We have to have the bid in by the end of THIS MONTH, so please do it as soon as you can.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thank you all in advance!!
