Dumbledore's Army DA Charlie

The Story of James Bellum

Greetings former members!

I can't express how much I miss this community and how much fun it was to be a part of it. It was so great to form friendships with each and every one of you and I hope we cross paths again soon. Maybe one day things will be back to normal on here.

Right now, however, I have some news! I'm helping work on a new fan fiction experience about an original character I came up with. It's a lot of fun and I can't wait for the official website to launch! For now, though, you can get the latest information on the project at www.JamesBellum.info. Be sure to keep track of the blog and all the information that's released, because, guys, I am SO flippin' excited about the story. It's really going to be a lot of fun and I hope you guys follow us. You can follow us on Twitter as well @JamesBellum, which will automatically post when the website has been updated.

Thanks!

How's it goin'?

Greetings Dumbledore's Army members,

I miss you guys. I miss this community. But unfortunately it's not time yet to bring it back. There wasn't that heavy of a response last time I posted something. I get encouraged by a few select individuals to re-open. I really would like to. But I am a busy person and I feel like it would not be worth my time if no one is going to participate and "upgrade" the community. I would be glad to find time out of my day to post in this community if I had more support, but alas, I don't. Thank you to those who have supported me throughout this hiatus though.

I do have a sliver of good news, however. If any of you have facebook, I have created a community called "Dumbledore's Army." It's been around for a while now. We don't do anything in it, but it is used to bind the group together still... much like the fraudulent galleons Hermione made to notify the members of future meetings. If you would like to join it, here is the link:

I hope all is well.

Discussion — Harry Potter Month

Greetings, members!

Unfortunately, this is not a call to come back. Opening the DA is something I am not yet ready to do. Perhaps in the near future. We will see.

However, I would like us all to stay bonded, so I have arranged a discussion among the group. Remember that in discussions, you may post whatever you wish pertaining to the topic. Have fun with it, for it is interesting, as always.

In the most exciting time of the releases of both the newest book and movie, what are you most anticipating about the month of July (or, as I like to call it, "Harry Potter Month")? What about the release of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (the movie) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (the book) is most thrilling? With the book and the movie being released almost within a week of each other, you are bound to find all of your excitement bundled up into one ball. Dissect it and figure out what you are most looking forward to.

In the process of coming up with a nice response for us to read and look into, discuss what you think is interesting about Daniel Radcliffe's new-found interest in doing "more serious" work, such as with the play Equus.

I hope you are all doing well, and remember to stay in touch.

Note: This will give me an idea of who is interested in having the DA re-open.

An important announcement by Charlie

Good early-afternoon to all Dumbledore's Army members,

This has been a very long and exciting journey for Dumbledore's Army and I have been very happy to be a part of it. I appreciate the support I had with the group for the majority of these past few months. I hope to one day encounter it again.

Unfortunately, I will be putting the entire community on HIATUS status. I am not receiving the same amount of support that I once had. It is very disappointing because I spent many hours on this community and it is something I am very proud of. I sort of gave you all an "anonymous" test, which was to see if you'd promote at the asked time. When I took the hiatus off of application processing, I asked all of you to promote the community so we could get the ball rolling again. That clearly has not happened, sadly.

I do appreciate the support of those who stuck with it until the now. I appreciate your communication and dedication and I would like to let you all know that Dumbledore's Army will be back later on down the line. Right now, most members need to re-evaluate their status in this great community. And yes, I would like to call it a great community because in the beginning, it was... because of the creativity, because of the dedication, and because of the members. When you joined, you promised you would be active and support the group. I thought it would be easy to filter out those not as enthusiastic by drawing out the application process with three steps (including an interview!), but I obviously misjudged.

I hope to one day work with you all again.

As of now, Dumbledore's Army is closed.

Hiatus Removed

Good afternoon everyone,

I will be taking the application hiatus off of Dumbledore's Army very soon. Our next ceremony will be Sorting Ceremony #12 which will take place on September 20th. Tomorrow we will again start accepting applications, so it would be great if you promote the community. If we do not get applications for the 20th, then the hiatus will remain. Also, I'd like to remind you that for every person you successfully promote to, you get thirty (30) points for your house (and every house needs points).

As far as our separate branches and houses go, activities within them will be set on hiatus because we need to re-evaluate a few things...

Thank you.

Part two of my discussion challenge

Hello everyone, Jess Head of Hufflepuff here again. I think at this point everyone should have had enough time to discuss what makes there house tick. So it is time for part two.

This part is a discussion with the whole group. I would like to have everyone discuss what they talked about in there small groups with everyone.

So to start this discussion off, what makes each of your houses tick?
