Dear Owlpost participants -
The Owlery is all spic and span and cleaned out of last year's paper wrappings, dry needles and a year's worth of dust and mouse droppings. We have already received a fair number of beautiful gifts, which are sitting in one corner, ready for delivery come December.

Next Friday, on November 11, we expect a huge deluge of owl gifts to pour in. Let us tell you - the owls are quite excited.

We have many new participants this year which is awesome. For all that are new to H/D Owlpost Fest, we thought we'd explain a bit about the fest tradition and about how H/D Owlpost will be posting in December.

The most burning question first: 1. What's with those Owls?
Postal Owls deliver letters, packages and gifts in the wizarding world. When this community was created many years ago as a gift-giving community, the name [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost was chosen because of this. The artist [livejournal.com profile] leochi created a banner for the community, featuring four owls, and this is how we got

♥ Snapey ♥ Hedwig ♥ Errol ♥ Romeo ♥
         

These four owls do an awesome job at gift delivery even Errol, which is why we kept them on. :)

2. How will posting happen at [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost fest?
• We are posting every day from December 1 to December 31. Each day, one participant recieves all their gifts. The gifts come in three posts, each one clearly titled GIFT FOR [RECIPIENT'S NAME]. Every participant gets three gifts, even if they could only create one or two gifts. We try to give at least one gift to each pinch-hitter, too. :)
• This year, 39 people signed up for H/D Owlpost Fest. A few will drop out, but there will be more than 31 participants. Which is why on some days, especially around Christmas, we will post the gifts for two participants on one day. Because of drop-outs, usually some gifts are gifted to the [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost community as a whole on Christmas Eve.

3. When will my gifts be posted?
• The posting order depends on one factor alone: whether all your gifts are in. As each participant receives gifts from three different people, this can mean that even if two of your gifts have already arrived, we are still waiting for the third. Which means we cannot yet post your gifts, and your gift-posting day will be scheduled for later. And oh, yes, not all gifts come in on November 11, even if we wish they would. ;)

4. Why are some gifts anon and others not?
In general, all gifts are "posted anon". This means you will only know who created those awesome gifts for you when the Big Reveal goes up on January 6, 2017. It's more fun like this. ♥
There are a few exceptions: If someone is betaing a fic, this gift can obviously not be anonymous. Podfic gifts also are not anonymous as podficcers' voices are dead giveaways as to their identity. :)

5. I've heard something about Participant Banners?
You heard right: There will be gorgeous, individualised banners for all H/D Owlpost participants. Here are last years' participant banners:

Participant banners will be posted in the community for you to snatch and display wherever you want, sometime after the Reveals in January 2017.

Do you have any other questions? Deadline problems? Anything else?
Please email us at hdowlpostmods@gmail.com. We usually respond without 24 hours,

We are very excited about this year's H/D Owlpost Fest and you should see the owls!!! -

It snowed today, and the Owlery is a flurry of white flakes. Snapey, Errol, Hedwig and Romeo are getting very excited about delivering all the owlpost this year. A small heap of gifts has already arrived; we are preparing for the big deluge on Wednesday. Because yes:
