    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    It was suggested in the thread in General Discussion that the schedule be amended. However, as only 4 people posted in response to that suggestion, I think I'm going to keep the original schedule in the name of avoiding uncertainty. We can always amend it later if we wish. And in any case, the first few weeks are the same either way so we have plenty of time to switch if more people come out in support of the amended schedule.

    Woot. Where was this idea spawned, IRC? Looking forward to it, though I'll probably be done reading series tommorrow sometime.

    It might be helpful to get a poll on this either soon or within the coming weeks to know before any scheduling conflicts come into play. For reference, the proposed amendment Taure is mentioning here is this one. The amendment principally affects the Goblet of Fire and Order of the Phoenix schedule to shorten the time from 28 to 26 weeks, for symbolic reasons mentioned in the post.

    Again, a poll either soon-ish or within the coming weeks would let us best gauge which schedule people prefer.
