May DADA Class Suggestions

This month, anything and everything is fair game for DADA.  With your Extendable Ears you are to dive into the queue or project page of another player in the House Cup, specifically a player in any house other than Gryffindor. 

The trickiest part of this assignment is to make certain that the person is a current player in the House Cup and that they are in a different house.  It is a little bit easier to find projects that have already been made.  CherrySprinkle first brought it up in the common room, and I'd like to expand on it here.  You may want to have multiple tabs or windows open for this, but it's not required.  First, bring up the pattern page for any item in your queue that you would like to make.  On the Projects tab for the pattern you will see two drop down menus just under the different tabs.  From the drop down menu on the right (Projects from all users is the default setting) you can select just the HPKCHC group.  This will show you projects made from that pattern by members of the House Cup group.  Not all members of the group are currently playing in the House Cup, so you will need to cross reference the person you wish to stalk with the master list for this term, found here.

The other option for finding a possible project to make is to look through someone's queue.  This is a trickier and more time consuming process, but is still doable.  The easiest way to find someone who you have a large number of projects in common with can be found on the main People tab of Ravelry.  Scroll down, and at the bottom you will see neighbors.  This area has a selection of people that you have both completed and queued projects in common with.  Again, these people might not be playing in the House Cup or even be in the House Cup group, so you would still need to double check the House lists.

When you turn in your final project, make certain to credit the person whose queue or project page you stalked.  ScarlettB and her TAs are trusting each of us to operate on the honor system that we did look through the queues and projects pages of others because it would be insane for them to try to cross reference and check that everyone is properly playing by the rules.
