I know this doesn't come as a surprise now, but as you may or may not already know it was HPFF's 11th birthday this month and what better way to celebrate the site's first Hogwarts year than by having new forum skins?

There are five new forum skins inspired by each of the Hogwarts houses, plus one neutral/dark for the members who prefer darker skins. To change skins, just go to the bottom of every page and click "Change Theme"

A few months ago there was a mystery challenge posted on each common room, asking the members to submit banners/headers. Those headers then went on to voting and I am proud to announce the winners!

Harry Potter: justonemorefic - staff poll winner
Gryffindor: caomoyl
Hufflepuff: ForgottenFace
Ravenclaw: justonemorefic
Slytherin: bellatrixcrucio

I would also like to thank justonemorefic for her help in creating the backgrounds for the skins.

On top of the new skins, I also made some tweaks to the layout and tried to correct a couple of bugs:

- You now can see whose profile you commented
- Topic descriptions are back - you can use either the topic descriptions or the tags for the challenge deadlines, as long as you use one.
- The topic information on forum view has been arranged to give it a more clean look and to make it look like the old versions of the forums
- There are a couple more coming

I hope you enjoy the changes and if you have any complain, my inbox is open :)

Like I've said before, the skins are awesome, as are the little changes! But also congrats to all of those who got a header up! Those are gorgeous as well!
