WE DID IT GUYS! *throws more confetti since apparently that's my thing now* Thanks to everyone's amazing help and information contributions, the Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade databases are officially launched and put into their new homes. Thank you to Weasley for all your administrative work in accomplishing that task. But it's not done yet! I want to begin taking suggestions or contributions on the following areas to continue adding details. Other points of interest I would like to add a post in the mix describing some of these non-shop points of interest in each shopping destination. These are primarily considered to be landmarks, such as Gringott's or Knockturn Alley in the Diagon Alley forum topic, or the Post Office and Shrieking Shack in the Hogsmeade forum topic. Are there any that are not currently listed in the first post of each topics that you think would be a good addition? Are there any specific pertinent details that you think would be good to add? Other shops Oh man guys, it's time to finally submit your Alumni-created shops and street vendors! Please refer to the last post in each of the Databases on directions on submitting these (Hogsmeade [here] and Diagon Alley [here]). You can either post the form in this thread here or you can PM it to me separately. I do want to make some points clear before you submit these, though. If you submit this information to be included, you are giving your permission to anybody to godmod your shop and your character. Don't submit something if you are not comfortable with this fact. We will encourage people using tags for these shops to contact you if they have any questions and we encourage you to contact them right back about participating! But you must always get permission from the original poster first, unless the thread is already marked #open. If you would like to add any of your Alumni as employees into the existing main shops, please let me know and we can discuss it. In efforts to be in compliance with any and all copyright laws, we are trying to avoid using celebrity images that may have copyright restrictions associated with them. If you would like an image included with your character's shop, please find an option on a site that complies with this. I personally found a lot of success on Pexels and Unsplash, but if you find a different one that needs to have the credit added, please let me know. In addition, if there are any glaring errors, misspellings, or grammar that sounds dumb on any of the database posts, please let me know. I'm not a professional editor, so I wouldn't be surprised I missed something silly.
I'd like to see some more Herbology related items that I could give away as prizes for students (gillyweed is too expensive for a prize): mimbulus mimbletonia, leaping toadstools, flitterbloom, bubotuber, mandrakes, shrivelfigs, etc.
