So from today you'll notice a new link on the top of our website to a new House Points page. We've started by assigning points to teams in the Sorting quiz (for those who were there, this is why we asked to know which houses the members of each team were in). For those points, we've done a bit of numerical jiggery pokery, but it essentially boils down to giving each member of each team all the points that their team won, and then summing across a house. For people who were unsorted, we've assigned their points to houses in the same ratio as the ratio of people belonging to each house.
There's a spreadsheet on the page showing what we've done, and if you look at that you might notice that the houses aren't particularly even; we have a lot of Ravenclaws, for instance, and not many Slytherins. So we've also weighted the points by house, to give every house an even chance.
We'll have house points available at the Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, so make sure you come along to support your house!
We hope you like this new aspect of HPSoc life. We're running it as a trial for this term, so if you have any thoughts on it send us an owl.
Keep up the Quest!
