  1. House Cup Point Updates

    This thread will be used to post house cup point updates. This will usually be done around the middle of a month, but it may also be done after an event. We have just wrapped up our House Cup opening event for the 2017-2018 season, MAGIC, and here are the final results--which are also the HC point totals at this moment. Houses earned points for submitting tasks, getting special MAGIC patterns, and getting the blackout/coverall MAGIC. We (wrongly) believed the points would be spread more evenly amongst houses with four patterns up for grabs in addition to the blackout over three rounds, but this did not prove to be the case. Therefore, we decided to award 3rd and 4th place points to the two houses (Gryffindor and Ravenclaw) that did not earn any MAGICs at all, using the 100-75-50-25 point structure we have often used in the past, to recognize their participation and work. Hufflepuff and Slytherin earned MAGICs and will keep the points they earned for that (in lieu of the 100 and 75 points). Keep your eyes peeled for the next event! We'll be having something in the second half of October. Points Earned for MAGIC House Cup Opener Task Submissions Hufflepuff - 207 Gryffindor - 139 Slytherin - 115 Ravenclaw - 3 Round 1 Slytherin - 135 points (total) Blackout (75) Special S (40) Special G (40) Purchase Card (-20) Round 2 Slytherin - 40 points (total) Wand (40) Goblet (40) Purchase Card x 2 (-40) Hufflepuff - 95 points (total) Blackout (75) Timeturner (40) Purchase Card (-20) Round 3 Slytherin - 60 points (total) Lightning (40) Number 7 (40) Purchase Card (-20) Hufflepuff - 135 points (total) Blackout (75) Chess Board (40) Quidditch Goal (40) Purchase Card (-20) "Placing" for the two houses that didn't earn any MAGICs. Ravenclaw (50) for completing over 90 tasks Gryffindor (25) for completing over 70 tasks Overall Totals Hufflepuff - 437 Gryffindor - 164 Slytherin - 350 Ravenclaw - 53
  2. How to Earn House Cup Points

    House Cup points are earned primarily by: Winning awards (Head Student, Story of the Month, FROGS, etc.) Hosting, participating in, and/or placing in challenges Prefect and staff writing events will be worth additional points Participating in and/or winning House Cup events Exact point structure varies by event, but often there are participation or other points available in addition to the usual points for winning/placing Other: This can include answering questions posted by staff or being recognized for an extraordinary act of kindness. However, the vast majority of points will be earned in the ways listed above. Aside from challenges, we are not awarding specific forum/archive participation points this year. However, participation on the forums and/or archives may make you stand out to staff, increasing the chances that we will put forth your name when nominating and choosing the monthly head students. Staff intend to update points monthly around the middle of the month.
