Newbies Where To Start



We all know how overwhelming it is when you first join a new community, especially one as big as Hogwarts Is Home! So, here is our handy guide to get you started :)

First off, I'd like to introduce your Prefects for this term! I am Michelle, my_threeloves06 and I absolutely love HiH and our Puffs! So, without further ado...

• I really recommend the first thing you check out is our Guide For The Newly Sorted. The first steps to be taken are listed there, the communities are briefly explained and there's an FAQ.

• If you want to start earning us some points, check out our Points Earning Guide. The communities are explained in much more detail here, and there are lots of useful links.

• Let us get to know you! Fill out our Introduction Template in the userinfo and post it as a new post to the Common Room! :)

• Register on The System! Your accounts will already have been created for you, so all you need to do is activate them (if you're a returning member, you just need to log back in). Once you're registered, you'll have a vault where all your knuts can be kept :) If at any time you forget your password, just PM me, my_threeloves06, and I can reset it for you :)

• We have our own Big Badger/Little Badger Program, where you can sign up and get a Big Badger to help you around HiH as well as your Prefects :)

• Add your birthday to our Birthday Log so we can send wishes your way when it's your special day!

• If you want some sigtags to use when sorting, check out the Flourish Shops, especially our own Hufflepuff Shops.

• To keep track of activities, we have our own monthly spreadsheet, The Awesome Spreadsheet of Awesome. You don't have to use this, but feel free to put your name down to keep track of what you've done.

• If you have any Questions or Suggestions for us, or even Comments and Complaints, you can go here to voice them, or you can PM either of your Prefects.

• Every month we have our own In-House Activity! To see what it is, go here :)

• Sorting is a great way to get points and welcome new members, and we have our own Sorting Log to help you keep track of the new applications! On the latest post you will find the number of applicants posted this week and links to them if they've already been dropped.

• If at any time you need to leave the community, please let us known on our Leaving and Rejoining Post. We know life can be tough sometimes, so don't feel bad if you have to leave. You'll always be welcomed back with open arms!

That's it for now! You've got the basics of where to start and what to do :) If you ever need to contact us Prefects for anything at all, even if it's just a chat, feel free to PM us!

Your Prefect,
Michelle ♥

Big Badger/Little Badger Program

- When a new member is sorted into Hufflepuff, they will receive a big badger.
- As a big badger you are expected to contact your assigned little after their sorting, be this as a comment on their introduction or through PMs.
- Try your best to answer any questions your little has, though feel free to ask the prefects or any other officials if you are unsure of the answer.
- Encourage your little badger to join the HiH sub-communities and perhaps suggest easy activities that they would enjoy to start off with.
- If this sounds like something you would like to do, fill out the form and comment in the appropriate thread.

Newbie Sigtags

- When a new person enters HiH they have no sigtags to sort with. As a welcome gift, you will create one for every new Hufflepuff member that week.
- Whoever the maker is will be announced in that week's New Puffs post and you will post your tags to the common room.
- This is a great way to practice your graphic making as well as give back to the Hufflepuff community! Here are some examples of past newbie tags.
- If this sounds like something you are interested in, fill out the form and comment to the appropriate thread.

Puff of the Month Nomination Post!

Is there a Puff that you think deserves some recognition in the community? Are they a super active superstar that helps earn a lot of points for Hufflepuff? Did they lend you a helping hand when you needed it? Or maybe you want to nominate someone just for being friendly and awesome!

Here's your chance to nominate those you want to recognize for being a standout member of Hufflepuff! Just fill in the textbox below. All comments are screened.

If you want to nominate someone for a particular month, please make sure they are in before the last day of the month. The Puff of the Month will be announced within the first week of the following month. In the event that there are multiple nominations (or no nominations at all), the Puff of the Month will be determined by the Hufflepuff Prefects (tunnels_of_loce). Nominees from prior months may be considered for future months. Winners cannot win two months in a row.

Questions? Please post them below, PM the puff_prefects account or email puff.prefects@gmail.com.




I'm also looking for volunteer banner makers! Since I'm not terribly graphics-inclined, I want to open up the opportunity for some of our more talented artists to make a sigtag for the winners. Volunteers will be rotated, however if there is only one volunteer than you may have to make one each month. If no one volunteers, then I will do my best!

Just sign up to the appropriate comment down below. Thanks!
