WHAT THE JUDGES HAD TO SAY:

The song works well for Gryffindraft because it’s energic and “powerful”, but I felt like it had more potential for lyrics. I liked the way the video is made as lyrics appearing on parchment, it definitely gives it a Harry Potter vibe. Also, the layered vocals sound pretty cool, and I kind of wish I could hear a better recording of the song because I’m sure it would sound even more awesome. Keep up the good work!

 

The Lyrics were spectacular. It’s nice how the project revolved around both the HP House and the Blogger’s version of the House. The analogy seemed very safe but very comfortable. The way Gryffindor related Art was well placed.

 

Nice singer! Wish you would have been a bit more creative with the video.

 

Probably would have given them less points if they didn’t pick that song. It’s fast, rock, powerful and it gives me a totally different opinion.

 

Couldn’t think of a better song to use, great choice. Lyrics need some work-over; you can’t just replace a word with another and call it a day. Video was really good(for an already generated slideshow) and singing is almost perfectly coordinated.

 

Next up… 3rd place!

 

 

 

 

FIRST TASK RESULTS – BLOGGERS’ HOUSE CUP

tl7mxtr

THE FIRST TASK IS OVER… AND THE RESULTS ARE IN!

BUT BEFORE I POST THEM (HAHAA), I need to say, thank you all SO. MUCH. for participating and engaging in out first House Cup. I was present with all of the houses and you all did AMAZING. TRULY. I didn’t expect this much work and passion to come from you for this game. It just goes to show how great our small community is. I hope you all have started making friendships within the game, and that it will go on even after it’s over!

Here is what one of the judges, who happens to be the Slaytherin Nights Head of House in the GagaDaily House Cup I took part in, had to say about your submissions as a whole:

This task sounded so fun to me ever since I read the details, and I really hope it was fun working on it. In my opinion all the teams did an amazing job and put their hearts into it, which I’m very happy about – the spirit is essentially what makes or breaks the game. All the entries were creative and I enjoyed listening to/watching all of them. The task is definitely a bit subjective and the ratings will always be subjective to the judge’s point of view. All that being said, all submissions had their better and “worse” parts, and I tried to objectively rate them, but I definitely don’t dare say that what I said about them is the absolute truth and that I can’t be wrong. Let me finish by saying that I think you all did great and if you keep this up, the game will be great and enjoyable no matter who wins.

Now, time for serious business. Ladies and gentlemen, the ranking will begin in a few moments, starting with the 4th place up to the first.

GOOD LUCK TO EVERY TEAM!

FIRST TASK: MAGICALLY MUSICAL – BLOGGERS’ HOUSE CUP

o3rlbex

IT IS THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES!

STUDENTS SCURRY THROUGH THE HALLS, GATHERING AROUND THE DASHBOARDS TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY HAVE THROWN THEMSELVES INTO.

FIRST TASK: MAGICALLY MUSICAL

You and your Housemates will decide upon one song. Any song. Your Head of House will make the final decision and report the song back to me.

The song you pick will then become the theme song to your house throughout this competition.

But wait! You’re not gonna sneak away that easily.

You and your team mates are going to change the lyrics of the song to fit your house.

No holds barred: you can come up with anything you want, from boasting your house values to roasting the other houses…

 

And the best part is (at least for me it is)…

You are going to be recording this song!

Nevermind your singing skills, you need to give it LIFE. You can either pick a member to sing the whole song, make it a duet, assign each part to each member, or even get a friend of yours to sing it.

The song must be uploaded to any video platform you feel comfortable with, and will be accompanied by a video. The video can be anything you want, from a slideshow to a lyric video to an actual music video.

Seeing as this is your first task and I want you to do your best, you will have ten days to submit your entry.

Throughout the competition, the tasks will be judged by a panel of independent judges who will be completely unbiased.

Points will be given for the song choice, the cleverness of the lyrics, the creativity of the video, and the presentation as a whole.

Points will be distributed as such:

1st Place: 50 points

2nd Place: 45 points

3rd Place: 35 points

4th Place: 30 points

DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH, 11:59 PM EST.

ANY HOUSE THAT FAILS TO SUBMIT BEFORE THE DEADLINE WILL HAVE ITS TASK POINTS REDUCED BY HALF, REGARDLESS OF POSITION.

ANY HOUSE THAT FAILS TO SUBMIT IN TWO DAYS’ TIME WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE TASK.

REMINDER: ALL PLAYERS ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER TO BLOGWARTS BOARDS!

If you haven’t already, make sure to:

  1. Visit blogwarts.boards.net,

    Register to the forum,

  2. Go to the Welcome thread,

  3. Follow the links to your House Common Rooms,

  4. Register A SECOND, SEPARATE registration to your House forum,

  5. Wait to be approved and start taking part in the task.

IF YOU APPLIED BUT YOUR NAME DOESN’T FIGURE HERE, LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER TO OUR NEW FORUM, BLOGWARTS BOARDS!

Blogwarts Boards is the forum where most of the House Cup will be taking place. In addition, Tasks and Results will be announced weekly both on this blog and on the forums.

A warm welcome awaits you in the Great Hall, and prefects will lead you to your respective Common Rooms, which means you will then have to register to your respective house forums. Applications will be reviewed by me, to make sure no students sneak into other houses’ common rooms!

ALL STUDENTS MUST REGISTER TO BLOGWARTS BOARDS AND APPLY FOR THEIR RESPECTIVE HOUSE FORUMS!

Enjoy your first few days at Blogwarts by holding discussions, chatting with friends and meeting new students. Everybody’s free to start up a thread in the Great Hall and get people talking, from Harry Potter, to any books or fandoms, to real life advice, to social debates.

On Monday, CLASSES OFFICIALLY BEGIN! Which means the respective house boards will open, the First Task will be revealed, and thus the race for the elusive House Cup will begin. Prepare yourselves for all kinds of wicked challenges and surprise minigames throughout the competition! The more active you are, the more points you will earn your house, and the better chance you have at WINNING THE HOUSE CUP!

Prefects and Heads of Houses are encouraged to grant House Points whenever they see a student deserves it. Worry not though, we won’t pull any Dumbledore-robs-Slytherin-from-their-House-Cup move à la Philosphers’ Stone. Any awarded (or deducted!) house points will be reported to me so that I can modify the leaderboards.

If you need any help with schoolwork, feel free to consult your house Prefect or Head of House. If they see it fit, they will pass it on to the Headmawkward Blogger, A.K.A me.

FOR ANY NEWCOMERS: IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO SIGN UP AND JOIN IN!

UNFORTUNATELY THE SORTING CEREMONY HAS ENDED. TO JOIN THE GAME, COMMENT BELOW.

HERE’S TO OUR FIRST SCHOOLYEAR FULL OF FUN, FRIENDSHIP AND MAGIC!

BLOGGERS’ HOUSE CUP – SORTING RESULTS!

o3rlbex
[click on the banner link for the original post]

And the Sorting Ceremony begins!

As the newbies gather around the Sorting Hat in the Great Hall, the tension is high. The Headmawkward Blogger stands serenely by the side, excited to see where his first ever students will be sorted.

‘May I have your attention please?’ He asks calmly.

The ongoing chit-chat hints to him that he may not have it after all.

‘Sonorus’ he says pointing to his throat. ‘WILL YOU GIVE ME YOUR BLOODY ATTENTION YOU LITTLE – ahem – I think that will do. Very well! Welcome, welcome, to our humble school! I am so very pleased to see you all here ready to learn’

‘Learn?’ says Elm. ‘LOL. I’m here to win that cup!’

‘Gurl bye’, says L. ‘I’m here for the banquets.’

‘Very well… Then… I guess we’ll eat!’ declares the Headmawkward Blogger.

‘NO!’ they all cry out.

‘Is this old dude for real?’ snaps  Selfie.

‘We want to get sorted first!’ inquires Luna.

‘Fine, fine’ retorts the old dude. ‘You will all take the Sorting Hat test and shall be sorted into the most fitting house! Also, I will be randomly choosing a Head of House and a Prefect for each house. Most importantly, be honest. Good luck!’

Ladies and Gentlemen (and Bloggers), the sorting results are in!

After an inexcusably long sorting ceremony, all 52 of you have been sorted into their respective houses: Gryffidraft, Ravenclick, Hufflpost and Slikerin. But I am a messy bitch so I will keep you hanging a few more hours until I post the results for each house separately.

See you soon!
