Welcome to potter_rumble, a Rumble for Harry Potter. Wondering what a Rumble is? It's like a LIMS challenge, but without eliminations. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
Participants earn points in each challenge, and whoever ends up with the most points wins the round. Each round will consist of 8 challenges and each challenge will last a week. The community will focus on all aspects of Harry Potter - the books, the movies, and the actors. This community, including the rules, was inspired by who_rumble and dianna_rumble.
