As those of you who were there in the initial Gryffinchat know, I said that I would allow sorting logs to be posted here as long as I had permission from those above me. We very clearly do not have that now, and I am beginning to regret ever having created this community in the first place. I wanted this to be an integral place where we could legitimately help build each other up. Cheating in any form is never ok with me, I want to belong to a house that abides by the rules at all times.
I really love this house, and I have a lot of fun on hogwarts_elite. However, we most definitely need to live up to our name. Winning isn't everything, although it is a great feeling. I want us to win, but I want us to do it fairly. If the Hufflepuffs or Slytherins or Ravenclaws perform better than us, then I think that they should have the cup. I wouldn't want it if I felt like we didn't deserve it. I'm sure that most of you feel the same way.
I'm not deleting this community yet, but I will if I am asked to do so by Dex, Noah, or honestly, anyone else. No one should ever be made to feel uncomfortable by anything we do as a House: this was created purely for fun, so that we could have a positive place to help each other out. I still want that to happen, and I think it can.
I really love my Gryffindors, and I have faith that we can win the house cup: we have amazing graphic artists, fic writers, editorialists, and plain old creative geniuses in this house. You guys are great, so let's win that cup and deserve it.
