Hello Witches and Wizards! My name is LadyBrittany, I am the new Site Co-Lead for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. My main focus as a Site Lead is going to be working on our Community outreach and engagement! I have a few things I wanted to let you know that we will be adding and trying to implement here in the month of October. If you have any questions or suggestions you are welcome to send them in the comments below, on our discord, on twitter, or you can email them to me here.
The first change we are making is, having an About Us section! The goal of this project is for you to know our team. We want you to know that each of us has a role to play but that we can all help you. I also wanted to make sure if you had a question or suggestion you were sending it to the correct person. We want the Wizards Unite Community to be an amazing one and the first step in that in my mind was just to introduce the team producing content here for you.
The second change we have is one I am very excited to implement! We are going to have a working calendar with all of the events in Wizards Unite. You are able to add this calendar to your own and toggle it how you choose. I have set it up so that each different type of event has its own calendar, so you can pick and choose which ones you would like to add! Once they are added you can change the colors to whatever you prefer them to be. We also now have it implemented onto the site and it shows a two week span. We will keep this up to date as each event gets announced, for example for the month of October we have the dates for the Brilliant Event Fighting Forces for each of its two weeks. We do not however have the date and time for Community Day so that will get added later. The descriptions for each event will have a brief overview and then a link to the article pertaining to that event if you want more information. We wanted to give the community a way to see each event every month at a glance and in a way that is convenient for you, just add it to your calendar initially and we will keep it updated so no work for you! I hope you enjoy both versions of the calendars!
Here are the links for each type of event:
Monthly Giveaways and Contests
The third change we are adding is one I think you will be the most excited about! Moving forward we will be doing a monthly contest for a prize, as well as a monthly giveaway! If our community grows enough in the future we will do both more frequently than monthly.
The giveaway will be done in a few ways so enter in the way most convenient for you. You can submit to enter on discord, twitter, or the respective community thread. Each section you enter will be considered a different entry so you can enter up to three times. You must submit to be entered by October 31 at 11:59pm est. We will use a random number generator to choose the winner will all the entries and will announce that winner on November 1. We will be giving away a $10 Google Play or iTunes Giftcard (your choice).
The first contest will be themed around Halloween, we would like you to take an AR picture of any foundable you choose and have it be Halloween themed. This can be spooky and creepy, or as fun as going trick or treating with your family and Luna! The choice is completely up to you. You have the entire month to submit your entries until 11:59pm Oct 31 EST.
The prize will be a Wand Stylus of your choice from TheNiftyNiffler! You will also receive a $10 Google Play or iTunes giftcard (your choice).
You can enter in a number of ways; submit on discord in the channel for contest entries, submit them to the respective community thread, or send them on twitter via a tweet or a replay to this thread. If they are submitted after the deadline, sadly we will not be able to accept them. We will make a decision as a team and then announce the winner on Monday November 4. Announcements will be done on twitter, discord, and on the thread we create. In your submission please include the best way you would like us to reach out to you so we can send you your prizes!
These are just a few of the changes we are going to have moving forward and I hope you are as excited about them as we are! Again if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to reach out to me in the comments below, on our discord, on twitter, or you can email them to me here. I look forward to seeing what amazing things this community can do and working with you all!
