You find yourself standing in front of a rather strange looking painting. A knight in full armor is leaning on his sword. All of a sudden, he shifts his weight off the sword, pulls up the slate that covers his eyes and looks right at you.
Nervously, you take out a tiny slip of paper. Your hands are shaking. You take a quick look to make sure no one from another house can see or hear you. The coast is clear. You look up from the paper and softly whisper the password.
"You may proceed." he says, taking a slight bow.
The painting swings open just like a door. You're amazed. You slowly walk inside and are met with the most breathtaking sight you've ever seen.
"Welcome to the Ravenclaw common room. We're happy to have you."
This closed community is the Ravenclaw House common room for the Hogwarts Challenge (hogwartsch) network of communities. If you would like to be sorted, please visit hogwarts_ch to post an application.
IMPORTANT: We recently did some "house cleaning" to ensure that all the listed members of Ravenclaw are actually participating and paying attention. We removed everyone from the member list who did not respond to a post in the common room within a month-long period (the deadline was July 31, 2007). There were frequent reminders about this!
If you were a member of Ravenclaw and you were removed because you were unable to respond during that month, send an e-mail to the address on this page and include the reason why you weren't able to respond and a link to your sorting post in hogwarts_ch where you were stamped as a Ravenclaw. You will be re-added to the common room, provided that you make an effort to participate in some way at least once per month. Thank you!
