I think it was because he'd gotten in a fight (magical in nature) with Malfoy, who was probably teasing him about his family. (I want to say it was something to do with the car and Mr. Weasley being in trouble, but I'm not positive.)

No, it was for something that

happened in class.  Harry got detention, too, but had to go help Lockhart answer fan mail.  So it was something they did together and I think it was

something in Snape's class that got them the detention.  Oh, darn it!  I can't remember....

Well, it was when he was burping

up slugs.  His wand was broken, and he tried to curse/hex Malfoy, but it backfired and hit him instead, didn't it?  I think he and Harry were in potions

and....  Was this when they DIDN'T make sure Neville made his potion right or was that another time?

They were in the hallway!  Malfoy had

been calling Hermione a mudblood and Ron got so mad he tried to hex Malfoy but his wand backfired and he got himself instead!  ... I think?

Right.  It was in book two.  He was

polishing Tom Riddle's trophy and he burped slugs all over it and had to repolish it.  If only I could remember what it was for...

*ahem*  Right!  

Let's see.  Since I most recently re-re-re-read book three...How many times did Dumbledore suggest to Hermione to turn the Time Turner in order to save Buckbeak and Sirius?

just out of curiosity, shouldn't

we end up adding up all the points and factoring this into the House CUp at the end of the month? I'll total the points if you want...

Good point, Lauren?  What was

the system we had worked out before?

Okay, when Professor McGonagall was telling Oliver Wood about Harry's broomflying ability, how deep

of a dive did she tell him he took?

I braved the popups to find the rules:

Quote
..................................................................... RULES...................................................
Every house can play in the trivia game! Once a question is asked, there are allowed to be up to 3 guesses for the answer. Whoever gets the answer correct, posts the next question (after a confirmation that their guess was correct) and gets 1 point.

If nobody guesses the correct answer to a question after 3 guesses, the person who asked the question gets the point and asks another question.

Each question is worth 1 point.

At the 100th post, we add all the points up.
1st place house gets a 40 point bonus,
2nd place house gets 20 points,
3rd place house gets 10 points, and
4th place house gets 5 (points for participation)

and I was trying to add up the totals, but I'm not sure what to do about Ping. Weren't you a Gryffindor Ping? I seem to recall you saying that when you tested the Sorting Hat you made, you got Gryffindor. Obviously though, if you don't want to be included in the totals....

Lauren is correct!  Your question.

I move that the points from the trivia threads NOT be divided, as it is a house effort, and not the earnings of an individual.

Oh, I agree, I would have thought that was the obvious answer. I just meant the total trivia points... never mind, I'm not making any sense....

What Muggle treat does Harry intend to buy when he first encounters Wizarding sweets?

Ooo ooo! *waves hand in air in Hermione impression, though not on purpose* Mars Bars!

(And since I know I'm right...) Probably an easy question, but what did Fred and George try to send to Harry at the end of book 1?

As for my points, I guess they go to Gryffindor, huh? Poor, Mad-less Gryffindor.  :o
