House Unity Mod

Please pick.

A



Have you ever held an officials position in HiH? If so, how many terms? 3 terms
How much availability do you have in an average week for performing mod duties? 20 hrs
Do you have any experience creating/manipulating graphics? no
Suggest three activities to promote house unity:
- weekly activities to get everyone to get to know each other like a friending meme, I have never, pillow fight, ABC game and others
- Have activities aimed at everyone, so that everyone can participate in and to get to know each other. Like what does House Unity mean to you, have people either write things are submit a raphic about it
- A House Unity chatroom
- Penpals/card exchange
Why are you interested in this moderator position? House Unity has already been important to me, we are one community and we should act like one. House Unity is also a way for people to know each other, dosen't matter what house your in.

Have you ever held an officials position in HiH? If so, how many terms? This is really the first time that I've been an active member for long enough to qualify for a mod position, but I recently took the fourth position at hogwartsicons and I've had loads of experience moderating in other communities.

How much availability do you have in an average week for performing mod duties?

I'm a busy person, but very efficient. Sometimes I'll have a lot of downtime, sometimes I won't, but I will always take care of my responsibilities (or at the very least give notice when I can't).

Do you have any experience creating/manipulating graphics?

Enough to run a Flourish shop and enter graphics challenges. I'm still new to Photoshop, but I'm learning more every day.

Suggest three activities to promote house unity:

1. An interhouse team challenge similar to Quidditch and/or Philosopher's Stone (trivia or puzzles that must be completed with participation from multiple houses).
2. International Appreciate-Your-Secondary/Tertiary/Quaternary-House Day. Talk about the qualities you have that might have gotten you sorted into other houses, and see what everyone else has to say.
3. Discuss the pros/cons of Sorting as we see it in the books. Why does the Sorting Hat practically have to beg for some house unity in canon? What could have been done to make it different? Is there anything we do in HiH that improves upon this, or anything that SHOULD be done?

Why are you interested in this moderator position?

I've been sorted into three of the four Hogwarts Houses over the years, and come to realize that there are things to appreciate about all of them (and the people in them), even though I feel happiest in Slytherin. I also think that HiH would benefit from a closer-knit community network, and I'd like to be in a position to make it happen.

Have you ever held an officials position in HiH? If so, how many terms? Yes, 2 terms
How much availability do you have in an average week for performing mod duties? I'd say about 20 hours a week, probably.
Do you have any experience creating/manipulating graphics? Yes. I run and participate in several icon contests, and I make all of my own graphics for my journal (unless I see someone else's and it's really cool!)
Suggest three activities to promote house unity:
#1. Student Council
This is the big one- Pending Mod approval, I would like to create a House Unity sub-comm similar to Insomniacs or the Order. I want House Unity to be like HiH's Student Council. Basically, a goodwill organization. A sample of the goodwill activities? Since this term will be over Halloween (I think?)- Candygrams. Real schools do 'em, why not us? Here's what we'll do: From a certain date, to another certain date, you can comment to the sign up post to buy your candygrams for your HiH friends. Then, come Halloween- 4 for you Glenn Coco, you go, Glenn Coco! And none for Gretchen Weiners- a post where everyone can pick up their yummy surprises! How is this different from a Hogsmeade giftag sale, you ask? Well, for starters, they're not sig tags. They will specifically NOT be sig tags, they will be shiny profiley banners. Secondly, you will have to PAY for them!!!!! Yes, these gifts will definitely go to help the cause of House Unity, because all of the proceeds will go to a special HU vault that will be set up. Then, at the end of the term, the contents of that vault will be taken to Shpadoinkles and divided equally into 4. In addition to that, this new Student Council-y House Unity comm would set up fun events like dances, pep rallies, and parties. I would also institute Hug a Slytherin day even though I'm not supposed to. And it's not just 'cause I want to get cozy with Professor Snape.

#2. Yo Mama!
In Canon, the apple rarely falls far from the tree: the Weasleys in Gryffindor, the Malfoys in Slytherin, the Lovegoods in Ravenclaw... the only exceptions I can think of are Sirius Black and the Patil twins. So, does the theory hold true in real life? Have your mom/dad/sibling/close-relative-of-choice fill out a condensed sorting application and have everyone vote on it. I've always felt my mom is a Hufflepuff, but could she really be a snake in badger's clothing?

#3. Capture the Flag
I've been trying since Term XII to think of a game as awesome as the werewolves game that the Order did was. Or possibly awesomer. Thanks to some brainstorming with a coworker, I may have finally come up with it. I haven't quite worked out the details yet, but it is going to be EPIC! The basics are this- teams of at least 4- one person from each house (pick your own teams or you can be matched up)- create a flag, but- O NOES! they've been stolen by the ebil one (who'll probably be me)! You'll have to navigate your way through many battles (probably questions or logic puzzles) to get your flag back, but here's the kicker- you don't win until you capture MINE, too! And that's gonna be REALLY tough! I think.
</nobr></td></tr><tr><td>Why are you interested in this moderator position?
In all seriousness, I love HiH, and I love being a part of this community. Even through my hardships, and my ups and downs, the people here have been so incredibly wonderful to me. I love the fact that I can do something that may help cheer someone up in even just a teeny tiny little way. I love coming up with an idea and thinking, "OMG, so-and-so would love to do that activity!" or "That would be so perfect!" I can't stand fighting, and I can't stand stereotypes, and I'm really good at organizing things, and putting things together. I love [info]hogwartsishome and I love House Unity and if I say any more I'm gonna make you all start gagging, so... that's all for now. Except, I have to say, I absolutely cannot stand pettiness and people who will not get along together. If I had my way, we will all be friends, or I will kill every last one of you! XD
