INFORMATION ON HOW WE WORK
TERMS: In hybrid_elite, there are four terms in which each House will try earning as many points as it can for his/her House. Each term is 13 weeks long and at the end of each term there will be an award given to each House for the most points. If a House by the end of the four terms receives multiple copies of these awards, they shall receive the House Cup.
Here are the dates of the beginning and ending of the next four terms:
Term I: January 1, 2008 to March 31st, 2008 CLOSED
Term II: April 1st, 2008 to June 30th, 2008
Term III: July 1st, 2008 to September 30th, 2008
Term IV: October 1st, 2008 to December 31st, 2008

CURRENT STAFF POSITIONS:Since this is a hybrid community, instead of having the original four Houses (Gryffindor, Slytherin, etc.), we have six new houses which are mixtures of the original four. They are as listed: Gryffinclaw, Huffledor, Ravenpuff, Slythinclaw, Slythindor, and Slythinpuff. For each of these Houses, there will be one Head of House. These people are very important to their House as they A) will be the 'active' head of their own House community and host their own in-depth House discussions and will also host weekly graphic contest to help choose which graphic best represents their House B) will be responsible for keeping track of the points earned and taken away within their house and C)will be in regular communication with the Headmaster. They will be expected to be very active within their House community and within hybrid_elite. If you feel you are right for the job, when you go to fill out your application there will be a question asking if you are interested in being a Head of House for whichever House you are sorted into. If you say yes and you are accepted, you are the first Head of Houses in this Sorting Community! After this first term, though, that procedure will not be followed. That person is Head of House until they choose to leave it, and when that happens you must first inform the Headmaster and then that person can choose the new Head of House. The new Head of House must have been a Prefect before being the Head of their House. You cannot be a Prefect and then be promoted to be Head of House unless you have been a Prefect for more than a term.
THE HOUSES AND THEIR HEAD:
PREFECTS: Although Prefects are not as important as their Head of House, they still are very important to their Head of House and thus to the Headmaster. Their main purpose is to help the Head of House in whatever they need (No Heads of House's, you cannot haze them.
Ok, a little, but don't hurt them permantly!) Along with the Head of Houses, they may give and take away House points. Members, if you have questions you need answering, you need to first go to your Prefects in your House. If they cannot answer your question either have one of the Prefects or you yourself approach the Head of House and ask your question. If they cannot answer the question, the Head of your House shall bring your question to me. Although I'll love every single one of you, I don't need 70+ people approaching me with questions on my free time. Most likely, if your Prefects will not be able to answer your questions, your Head of House shall. DAILY PROPHET HEAD:
Do you want to find out what is going on in all of the different communities of Hybrid, but are afraid you missed something? Then you'll want to talk to the Daily Prophet Head! This person is in charge of keeping an eye on everything that is going on in this community and reporting it to you! Expect a Newsletter every week keeping you up-to-date on all of the different contests, applications, and even letting you know the current standing of each House!
GRAPHIC SHOPPE HEAD: This person is in charge of graphics_shoppe.This person is in charge of approving new Shop Owners into the community and coming up with different themes on a weekly/ bi-weekly basis! They will also dove points to the Owners for their graphics. Must be a Shop Owner first before becoming a Graphic Shoppe Head!
SORTING HEAD: Sorting Heads are the people that our potential members of Hybrid Elite will most likely know the best. This person is entirely in charge of hybrid_sorting; They open and close applications, remove applications from queue, stamp applicants, make any modly posts in hybrid_sorting that need to be made, etc. If anyone has a question about applications, you'll want to talk to them. Our current Sorting Head is our lovely Head of Huffledor, Mandy, so if you have any questions about applications go and ask her. WRITING HEAD: Writing Heads are in charge of obscurus_elite. They come up with all of the different writing challenges and are in charge of gathering the entries and annoucing the winners of each challenge. Each winner who places are doved points from the Writing Head.
