Site Closure
The Captains would like to announce that The Quidditch Pitch will be closing for submissions beginning 12 July 2007 at 6:00 p.m. EDT and will reopen 1 August 2007 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

This will allow the staff and Captains time to see Order of the Phoenix, anticipate the new book, and to read and absorb Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- not to mention making any necessary canon-based changes to our site.

We look forward to rejoining you on August 1st for your stories and thoughts on the new book.

If you have questions please email the The Captains.

New Staff Members
We'd like to welcome the following new staff members:

  • redblaze:  she's joined our staff as one of the Captains.  She's our most trusted advisor.  *grins*

  • Plum aka letmypigeonsgo has joined our staff as a Quidditch Coordinator.

  • Leviathan aka leviathan0999 has joined the staff as a Quidditch Coordinator.
We'd also like to welcome the following new betas to the staff:
  • BrandedFaithfully

Additionally, please give a warm welcome to wolfekins as he's joined our podcast staff as a sound editor.

On a sadder, yet happy, note, rondastarr has stepped down as a formal Captain but we are leaving her as an Honorary Captain.  She's currently studying to be a Mediwitch (it's part of her plan for world dominance) and as the Captains are all getting older and sicker we've decided that we may need her down the line.

We're prepared!  We've already added a warning for Deathly Hallows spoilers, so beware on August 1st!

Miscellaneous
There will be no challenge for July or August.  Challenges will resume in September.

There will be strict enforcement of spoilers both on the site and this journal.

Shortly after the book is released we'll be announcing a members chat to discuss the book in detail and also a super sekrit forum area to discuss the book.
