Cool!  I am looking forward to it.  Not sure I could have answered the questions from last time, but am certainly willing to try.  :)

Woot woot! I can't wait! I've been waiting for the second one ever since the first one ended. Can we start asking questions now, or do we have to wait? (When I say can we start asking questions, I'm talking about inquiring about the tournament, not the actual tasks/questions. Don't think I'm thatimpatient.

Yay for the second round! Kelpie, I'm going to give you a run for your money!

Or at least, I'm going to try my very best. :)

Ha! You'll never succeed! You see my new icon? I'll be doing that, and I'll still beat you! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

*or something a little more hufflepuffish*

Actually, you know, I'm really busy with work. School has started again, and I finish at 5pm most day (hey 8th grade, I think that's bad). I'm sure you'll do well Ping, I'll just have to cross my fingers and hope to do better.

Hey, I'm still working somewhere between two and three jobs, so I'm usually going from 7-8 am (in order to include my hour-long commute) until at least 6 or 7 at night. So if you can pull off the loafing, more power to you. :)

Hmm, sounds like this'll be an interesting contest however it turns out. :)

*sigh*

I wish I could, but I am anticipating having no time whatsoever because I'm moving this weekend and then getting settled and then starting a new job that, by all accounts, will take up lots of time.

Good luck, though, everyone!

I am so sorry to do this, but I have to delay the Second Tri-Wizard Tournament by a week.  I am having MAJOR computer problems, so I can't get online with the frequency of the past.  These should be resolved in the next week.  Please check in next Saturday for the new tournament!

Coolness...

How long will sign-ups run for? Because I'd love to play, only I have exams until the 24th so I won't be online too much until then.

A Hufflepuff, offering to help a Slytherin cheat? What is the world coming to? :P

Thanks anyway, though! It's the thought that counts. ;) :D

I'll wait to start the second tournament until around the 24th - that way it can run up to the end of the Cup and Xan can participate.

Right now, nobody has signed up b/c like a moron I forgot to have people throw their names in the Goblet.

Everyone interested in competing, please submit you name to the Goblet by posting in this thread that you want to compete.

*walks in with matching stationary, looking at it like a barf bag*

Here, you can have it. *throws it at Deedra*

*takes out a "Mrs. George Weasley" roll of parchment, scribbles name in a corner, rips it off, and stuffs it in the goblet*

OK - it starts for REAL this weekend - I have been swamped at work and haven't been able to get on here for ages.  I am so sorry for the inconvenience.  Check in Friday evening for the modified tournament rules.

I am so sorry I haven't got this started yet - I had a trial moved up and this is the first time I have checked in in ages.  Because of my trial schedule, I am not going to be avaible through the end of the month.  I will post the  modified tournament rules on Friday, October 29, and the new tournament will start November 1.

In that case, I'll have to regretfully withdraw from the contest, if I may. I know that's not allowed in the books, but November is not a good month for me to be doing things, and I doubt I'll be online much at all. NaNoWriMo is during November, as well as finals at school, and probably more than one doctor's trip. >_> I'm sorry about this, Heather.
