WizNetworkers spend countless hours researching, writing, editing, and implementing each section so that the happenings of the wizarding world do not go unnoticed.

To all witches and wizards and everyone in between, let's hope you are wearing green to avoid getting pinched during this store re-release! During mid-March, the Store team announced the return of our seasonal St. Patrick's Day-themed items. We hope you were able to get these items before they left the shop at the end of March! From Pet Leprechauns to the Lucky Wand, there was something special for everyone. We hope you all enjoyed our St. Patrick's Day re-release this year.

With winter melting away, it’s finally becoming sports season, and with that, the Technology and Development department is excited to announce that they will be opening a beta version of Quabbleball for player testing and feedback. The first 20 people who commented their Minecraft Username and Discord tag on the Quabbleball Player Testing article on the Community Updates section of the Potterworld Forums were added to a private channel on the Potterworld Discord where they were given more information on how the player testing will work. This process will go on for about a month, so strap in for the long haul! They gave the chosen player testers access to the beta version of Quabbleball on Saturday, March 11. You can still leave feedback outside of the official beta testing, as all feedback is appreciated!
Prepare yourself, the Scribe Team is back at it with more pages and edits to our very own Potterworld Wiki! Included in this update are some exciting new NPC pages featuring Basically Beheaded Benjamin, Hailey Dixon, Marty Mitchell, and much more! Of course, we can’t forget the addition of one of our most recent Halloween event, “To The Other World 2022.” Along with these new pages are some rewritten NPC ones now updated to match our most updated lore! Several other edits were made, including graphics made by our wonderful Arithmancer team to some Reputation pages, additions featuring the Revenant Gauntlet, and Team page updates to reflect leadership changes. Make sure to go check out the new updates!
Love is in the air, as well as excitement from our Valentine’s 2023 Giveaway held by the WizNetworkers! In this giveaway, participants had to write something nice about another person. Since there were so many lovely entries, the WizNetworkers decided to pick out TWO winners! Congratulations to rosiemary and Davologies.
