Create a Halloween Haven banner.
Rules for Part One are simple:
Each member may submit up to 3 banners.
The banner(s) must have the words "At Haven" "the Haven" or "Haven for Harry Potter Fanatics" on it.
ANY Art that doesn't violate the Gaia TOS and has a
Harry Potter and Halloween theme, such as Halloween Harry Potter cards, pumpkin carvings of characters, etc is ok.
Make it something YOU would want to click on if you saw it!
The art or photo doesn't have to be your own, but you MUST include credits, or the artist's name and/or link where you got it!
Send your entry(ies) to Accio Funds, who will post them here. Do not post them yourself, or they will not be anonymous and you will be disqualified for a prize and House points.
Since entries are anonymous, and will be judged by an independent judge, and the other prizes are lucky draws,
staff (mods, prefects and Heads of Houses) may enter! Good Luck!
The banners should be Medium in size (approximately 320 x240) and also submit a small size (approximately 160x120), and/or have a suitable for profile comments. These sizes are automatic resizing options on photobucket.
If you don't know how to make a banner, ask in your Common Room for help or research the forums.
Each banner entry is 5 points to you! (Up to 3 entries and 15 points).
The winners of each of the following categories get additional points:
Scariest Halloween Haven Banner -10 points
Sexiest Halloween Haven Banner - 10 points
Best House Pride Halloween Banner -10 points
Funniest Halloween Haven Banner -10 points
Cleverest Halloween Haven Banner - 10 Points

Getting the Word Out
1. Post Halloween Greetings comments with a small Halloween banner on the Profiles of people who list Harry Potter or JKRowling in their interests. As of today, 59,777 listed Harry Potter in their interests, so there are plenty profiles to chose to give a Halloween comment to. It would be best not to put more than one invitation/Halloween greeting per profile. Save the names of the people whose profiles you post to.
Use the banner below or any small banner from this thread in your comments. Invite them to come and visit the guild. Write your own comment or use the sample comment below:
Sample Halloween Greetings:
Halloween Greetings! I notice you're a Harry Potter fan, too! I'm delighted to extend an invitation to you to visit our distinguished, delightful and frequently fabulous Haven for Harry Potter Fanatics Guild! Click on the banner below to Portkey to our Guild, and Whoo knows?
