Unique Item Event: October 27, 2009
During the month of November you can win Dumbledore's Pensieve: a unique item owned by nobody else on the whole website! The player with the coolest Dumbledore's Day Off Map will win this unique item. To see a list of player created Dumbledore's Day Off maps, click visit the DDO Artwork Page. The winner will be announced during late November. There will be only one winner, but the runner-up's will receive a badge for their quidditch team, so make sure someone from your quidditch team plays! The player who gets to judge for this contest will be announced before that! Discuss this event on this discussion board thread! Read more about unique items on the Unique Items Page.
Skin colors are not changing correctly. Some clothing isnt showing for players, so if you're nekkid, I am sorry! The appearance does on save on registration page so swhen you refresh it doesnt remember what your character used to look like.
There are no major updates planned. The creator of the game, Wormy, is currently applying for gradschool, and I am very very busy with that. I will keep an eye on the site and continue to add unique items and occasionally do unannounced updates.

New game: Nagini's Revenge. Sorry I have not been doing regular updates the last few months, I am getting more and more busy and have shifted my focus to other projects. But I will still be around in sorts to take care of the site and make sure nothing is going wrong, so play on! Also new teams are no longer going to get an Early Team Creation badge. I will start handing out some other badges soon, such as the Dumbledore's Day Off Contest Participation Badge.

I have been forgetting to update the news, despite making changes to the site. Oops. Most changes have been small fixes for glitches across the site and games, so no biggie. I have added a new drawing game, Dumbledore's Day Off, and with it an art page deticated to player-saved art from this new game. Have fun! Also in each players public profile, players 'favorite game' is chosen for them. It is based off of their game ratings (and in tie-breakers, the ones with the highest highscore win).

Updated Horcrux Hunting to have better physics.

Since now I will be working on more visible parts of the quidditch game, you can visit the incomplete game (its labeled 'future quidditch game') to see my progress. Come back every few days and see what I've added to it! Also, I noticed that there is a hugely disproportionate amount of Gryffindors, something I expected to happen. I will give bonuses to the houses whom have the least amount of players in, which is right now Hufflepuff and Slytherin. Added a new broomstick, the Clean Sweep Eleven. Made of Spanisk oak. This broom is the same broom that Ron Weasley was given in his 6th year. The broom is worth 300 sickles and is a present of type 'Broom'. Also added Omnioculars. Like binoculars, Omnioculars can help a wizard see far distances. They can also slow down and replay actions, very unlike binoculars. They are a type of artifact. Also added the Crystal Ball. Depending on who you ask, this is a a crystal sphere which Seers gaze into for the purpose of divination. Of course, Hermione would beg to differ.

Fixed glitch 'Cannot choose colors for presents'. I finally got the networking class to work, so now I can get started on the real part of the multiplayer quidditch game. It will still take a while but at least now I am at the part that I understand... The networking code is pretty confusing for me to work with so I am glad to be finished with it.

Fixed the 'Makeover page gives you a free scarf and doesnt save properly' glitch. Started with the choosing color system but it still isnt working.

The first two unique items are here! On the player marketplace, Godric Gryffindor's Sword was for sale, but was bought by the player Jeanmarc. Also, Dobby's Sock is Hiding somewhere on the site! I suppose he lost it before his brave exploits in Malfoy Manor. Browse through all the links on the site and see if you can find his lost sock. Start clicking... It's hiding somewhere, I promise! I bet you wish you had a sock-loving niffler right now, huh? Visit the Unique Items page for more information about unique items, and stay tuned to the site for new unique items.

Added an announcement system that is incorporated into the top banner on the page, and also put the first unique item in the game up for sale, Godric Gryffindor's Sword. Also Dobby's Sock is hiding somewhere on the site, see if you can find it!
