Welcome to hih_insomniacs, an affiliated community of hogwartsishome! You must be sorted at platform_934 and a member of hogwartsishome in order to join in on the fun.

This community was created as a haven for night owls from all the houses. There are currently four points/knuts earning activities posted each month that will keep you busy until the wee hours of the morning.

In addition to regular activities and contests, hih_insomniacs is designed as a place to get to know your fellow students and form inter-house friendships. Discussions about anything Harry Potter related or not are fine. The whole point is to get to know your fellow HiHers. That's hard to do without regular communication! Want someone to chat with until the wee hours of the morning? Post! We also now have an insomniacs chatroom on AIM, found at hihinsomniacs. This community is what you make it.

But for a better description, here is an insider's view of the community:

HiH Insomniacs is to night owls what the sunrise is for early birds — it’s a beautiful sight offering hope and promise for the night ahead. Hope and promise that the night is not just going to be a blur of getting lost in tumblr, searching for something to watch on TV or scrounging the fridge for something to eat. Instead, there are games to play, people to chat with, challenges to win — and the knowledge that every single person there is also up past the "bedtime" a lot of society thinks is normal. (Come on? Who goes to bed before midnight?!?)

HiH is a place where the wacky and the sleep-deprived come out to play. Want to post a meme on Disney movies and see if blow up to hundreds and hundreds of comments from people flailing and squeeing all over the place? Yeah, that’s happened. Want to pass the time until the stamping queue opens? Yup, been there. How about places to flail about TV shows and movies or the latest midnight premiere? HiH Insomniacs does that, too.

Sure, you could do these things elsewhere as well, but there’s just something about doing them at HiH Insomniacs — in the comfort of a place that is buzzing with activity long after the rest of your family is snoring away in bed. It makes it special and warm and cozy. And it sometimes makes it hard to get up and go to bed yourself. But that’s okay. Sleep is for the weak. HiH Insomniacs is for the awesome.

Come join in! You know you want to!

Can't seem to get anything past your nose, can I? Well, anyway. Feeling a bit nostalgic now. I think I may just go to every new years post to see what people's resolutions are. I'm a nosy little brat like that.

For a Scavenger Hunt, TERM XXV. Please do not delete till 01 May, 2013.


There are, of course, some basic rules you need to keep in mind.

Insomniacs Etiquette
1. Absolutely no house bashing, fighting, or drama. You will lose your house points! If you are having a problem with someone in the community, submit a comment at the suggestion post and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
2. You may post HiH community promotions (i.e. you are a club mod and you want more entries or votes in your contest) and/or outside HiH community promotions (i.e. you are a LIMS mod and you want more entries or votes in your LIMS). Please limit such promotions to twice a month for HiH communities and once a month for non-HiH communities.
3. LJ-CUT is your friend. If you are going to post graphics wider than 300 pixels, please put them behind a cut. If you are going to post more than one image, please put the other images behind a cut.

Posting & Submitting
1. Please post only between the hours of midnight and 8 am in your time zone.
2. All official activity and contest entries must be submitted during official insomniac hours.
3. Exceptions to the rule: questions about contests, suggestions for the community (at the official suggestion post), voting in contests, congratulating people on participating in/winning activities/contests, and responding to posts your fellow insomniacs make.
4. ALL posts, submissions, and comments should be labeled with your name//your house//your time zone.
