Discord Voice Channel Changes

  • 406

Discord_VC_Banner_1.png


Hello everyone!

As per popular request, we've added some additional swearing voice channels and changed the categories slightly. They're called The Dark Prison and the Mysterious Manor and can be found under a new category called "Swearing Channels". With there now being three in total - including the pre-existing Knockturn Alley - we felt it would be wise to separate them from the rest of the non-swearing channels to avoid any confusion or incidents.

The rules have been amended slightly to more accurately represent how we want these channels to be used. We're revoking the term "NSFW" and instead using "Swearing", as these are two very different things and the former is one we don't want to encourage anywhere on our platforms.

Please note that these changes do no effect any other existing rules & any incidents of NSFW content, or inappropriate language such as racist, homophobic, etc, slurs, are still strictly prohibited.

The rules can be found...

Director Intern Applications

Director_Intern_Applications.png
Hello everyone!

The Media department is pleased to announce that we are reopening the Director Intern application after the role has been reworked. We are very excited to welcome new members to the team!

What has changed?
We have made the Director Intern more like an intern. As a Director Intern, you will be creating videos for the Potterwatch channel under the supervision of a Sr. Director or a Media Lead. As a Director Intern, you will be learning skills to help you improve video creation and editing, and you will learn the standards we have for Potterwatch. The major difference between the old Director Intern and the new Director Intern is that now we do not expect people to already have great video creation skills. We welcome people who know the basics but who are also still learning.

Applications will be open indefinitely. Take your time with filling in the application and creating a test video. There's no rush to apply! If...

Daily Login Streaks Reverted

Hey everyone! It’s been nearly a week since the release of the daily streaks login, and here’s what we’ve learned from it, what we’re doing about it, and what to expect.

Reverting the update
After careful consideration, we’ve come to the decision to revert the streaks update, whilst we take the time needed to fix the bugs that has been occurring with it. We know that reverting updates is not fun, and trust me, it is even less fun for us, but with the amount of bugs the daily streaks is having, it’s something we have to do at this point in time to ensure a good gameplay experience for everyone.

Why we’re making this decision
We want to be transparent with all of you and explain why we’re making this decision:
  1. We miscalculated the bonus experience rewards by a long shot. In some cases, players were rewarded over 20 million experience.
  2. A lot of player’s streaks were resetting at random times, when they were not supposed to...

Daily Login Streaks

Witches and wizards, today we bring you an update from the development team! A new method of earning gold and Potter Points is here!

What are daily login streaks?
Daily login streaks are our new way of encouraging players to join the server on a consistent basis. This way, if you log in multiple days in a row, the reward you get for claiming your daily reward gradually increases, and continues to do so based on the streak amount. Graduates receive a larger gold bonus, whilst non-graduates receives a very large experience bonus.

Once you’ve reached the tenth consecutive daily login, the login streak will reset and you will be rewarded 25 Potter Points.

Balancing changes
With this, we’ve made a few changes to graduate rewards. Instead of receiving 50 gold for simply...

Hello everyone!

The Head Staff team and the Moderation department are excited to announce a change to the Moderation team! A few ranks are being renamed and there's a new role being added to the department in order to help balance things out a little more. The roles are now going to be:

  • Jr. Prefect - This is the entry rank to the department and is just the old Trainee rank renamed.
  • Prefect - This is the mid rank in the department and functions almost the same as a current Prefect would.
  • Sr. Prefect - This is the new rank, and is the senior position in the department. These are similar to Prefects but have more responsibilities.
  • Lead Prefect - These are the Leads in Moderation and are the old Sr. Prefects [not to be confused with the new rank].

There are, of course, the other ranks within the department, but these remain unaffected by these changes. We hope that these changes make sense! The application for...
