Congratulations Maia and Eli! You have both been absolutely killing it, and it's really great having you be part of the community

:bowdown:@ validators The way you've been dominating the queue at the same time as the House Cup (especially given all the new stories posted for it) is truly impressive

Welcome, Jill! If I haven't said enough times, I'm excited to have you on board :hug:

👀 idk if this was deliberate or just my brain thinking house cup all the time, but those headers represent all the house colors in a way that makes me very happy :hotwartscrest:

:wub: Thanks everyone so much, it's such an honor! I'm so grateful and happy to be a part of HPFT and be able to enjoy the House Cup too.

Congrats to everyone, to Maia and Jill, and also the July Story of the Month :)

I'm so in awe of all this site does. Besides boosting creativity and being very fun and inclusive, it also isn't afraid to tackle serious issues and offers its members a safe space to talk and exchange life experiences which is remarkable.

Oh and VALIDATORS....the speed with which you have been knocking out all those stories during sandcastles was unbelievable! Thank you for all your hard work ❤️

Oh my gawd guys, if I were white I'd be blushing! 

Thank you validators, staff and prefects for all you do to keep this community amazing. You've done such a stunning job at handling this difficult past month in the fandom is absolute grace.

Those graphics are stunning @abhorsen. :D

Thank you to everyone for the open conversations and for encouraging creativity in all its forms. You rock!

We had someone reach out asking why Noelle Zingarella's leaving the prefect team wasn't mentioned in staff changes. We don't typically get mid-month stepdowns, so it had slipped our minds by the time we started putting the bulletin together - thank you so much for pointing out the oversight! We've edited the announcement in. ^_^

Sorry this is super late in the month but it's still July and there's still time left so going to comment on this Bulletin since I missed June's! ;w;  As always,  the graphics always look amazing. Loving the color scheme and how bright and summery vibes that it gives off as well. Thank you @abhorsen.  😄

First off, congratulations to Jill for being onboard as a Staff member again and so excited to have you onboard!  Ahhh sorry to hear Noelle had to step down but thank you for all your hardwork, time, and effort on this site. ;w; 

Site wise, haven't been able to partake in the House Cup finale as I would like to have but the activities did seem from the things I seen here and there.  Also  to those of you who are  or have been partaking in this month's Camp NanoWriMo, I hope that all is going well with your writing and still wishing you all the best of luck!  Sorry if I haven't had been able to leave anything in your Nests but I have read them all and am so fascinated and intrigued by all the creative ideas and stories that you guys are working on! With a few days left just going to say this: You guys can do it! You got this! ;w;  

As for the identity, culture, and race thread since I've been reading it and or have considered posting there one day,  do want to say massive thanks to Kris (@grumpy cat) for making the thread since I enjoy seeing people sharing their personal stories and experiences. It's also great that we can come together as a community from all walks of life as well and be able to not only listen but also learn while reading about them as well if that makes sense. ;w;  💛  

Congratulations to @Ravenclaw_scientist and @shadowycorner for being the Head Students of the month! You guys deserve it! :D  Congratulations to @tatapb for also having your story: Witch Slap be featured as well!

As for Order of The Merlin,  sending many congratulations to  @just.a.willow.tree,   @maraudertimes,  @crowsb4bros,  @toomanycurls), and  again,  @abhorsen. for all the time and effort that you guys put into the archives in general! I may not have submitted mine yet but knowing you guys have done so for others who submit it and how much time it takes to validate and get it onto the archives is still amazing and wonderful!  Thank you all for your hardwork, time, and dedication! :) 

Many congratulations also to those whose stories were featured this month as well! Also happy birthday to everybody who's birthday is during this month! I hope you have a fantastical, wonderful, amazing, great, and happy birthday! :D 

Thank you always to the Bulletin staff for this month's (and the previous' months) bulletin and all your hardwork that you do! I hope the rest of this month has been going well for you as well! Take care and stay safe! ❤️
