On July 1, 2003, MuggleNet Interactive was launched…and almost immediately had to be taken offline after a mind-boggling 1500 users were logged into the site at the same time. Today we celebrate 10 wonderful years as part of the MuggleNet family.
I first registered in 2004, for no other reason than to take the sorting test. Yet after talking to my housemates (Ravenclaw Pride!), jumping into discussions and classes, and discovering a little thing called Roleplaying, I was hooked. I made some of the most amazing friends, eventually applied for staff, and now, 9 years later, I think about what a wonderful journey its been.
From the start, MNI was meant to be a virtual Wizarding World and, like Hogwarts, so many people have found a home there during the last 10 years. As always, the Potter fandom is filled with wonderful, brilliant, passionate people drawn together by their shared love of the series, but whose bond goes far beyond that. The site has gone through multiple incarnations but has remained an amazing community for tens of thousands of Potterheads from around the world.
And, with MuggleNet O.W.L.s just around the corner (only 1 week left!), now might be a good time to pop over to MNI Classes for O.W.L. revision. We’ll be posting review guides and hints to help everyone do their absolute best on their exams.
Starting this July and continuing throughout the coming year, MNI will be celebrating 10 years of magic and memories by bringing back some of the most popular features, games, and events as well as launching new projects to take us into the next 10 years.
We're extremely excited about what's to come and we hope everyone will join us in making the next 10 years as brilliant as the last. After all, MNI would never have made it this far without all of our users.
