Update from the 2012 WWBN Election Newsroom...

Polls closed just minutes ago but with the expertise of the finest countermonkey's have projected a landslide win for former WWBN Mad Mad World Host Dunena Reid.

Exit poll results give a strong 80% majority result for the newcomer with some even choosing to vote for exotic animals then give a vote to Frump in what has to be his worst result ever.

You heard it here first, Dunena Reid is the new American Minister for Magic!

The Magical world today woke to a flurry of Werks and stories after last night's broadcast of Dunena Reid's Weird Weird World hinted, quite strongly that recently crowned Houglass Magazine's Person of the Year Dunena Reid, was set to enter the race for the 2012 American Magical Elections with no lesser sight then the Minister's position currently held by Ronald Frump.

Speaking to the Ministry this morning reporters where told that while some paperwork may have been received it was after the weekend cut-off and would not be looked at until the subsequent week at the earliest.. unless it had fallen on the desk of one F. Blake in which one just had to hope that it would be filed at all.

Considered a possible hoax a interview with Producer and year long associate of Mr Reid Benjamin Jefferson led to the following statement "The hell I know? Trust me man I'm usually the last to find out these things"

More on this story and other top breaking news including the protest by Interweb giants Woozle against Muggle proposed internet filtering laws, after this break.

Our Paris news desk reports that police in Paris have begun searching the Seine River for the body of a man who is believed to have jumped from one of the bridges in a possible suicide attempt. Reported by a party on one of the barges docked along the Seine, this raw footage shot by one of the party goers shows the man plunging into the river. No sign of his exit from the river has been found and they believe that he died on impact.

Yes ladies the roamers where true that none other then high flung socialite and darling of the European Ministry Fifi LaRoux has been sighted in Melbourne, Australia which has recently been named the worlds most livable city for a second time.

While none have stated what brought on the arrival of Miss LaRoux there's been no question that the world famous Hit Witch has made no secret of her visit with roamers of a behind closed doors meeting with the Minister for Magic himself before dining out at the exclusive Vue de Monde for drinks. Seemingly at home in the city Fifi underwent a tour of the Auror department before attending the midwinter launch of the Matacore 'Enchantment' line of fashion robes. Speaking exclusively to WWBN Fifi states that she was very pleased to be in Australia and would not commit to any return dates nor roamers that her visit had anything to do with attempts to influence the Australian Ministry to re-think it's ties to Ronald Frump's ministry.

Witch Weekly's exclusive Interview with the well known Hit Witch hits store shelves Monday.

It seems that exposing the Minister of Magic's secret love shack was not enough to keep the host of WWBN's Top Rating News and Current Affairs show Dunena's Mad Mad World set for long. Now with the reveal of Pottermore the controversial host has moved to point fingers at not only the American Minister for Magic but that of a number of major Magical Ministries around the world accusing them of taking bribes to allow unfettered access to the Magical World. Outrage from the claims have lead to a call for a full investigation into Mr Reid's accusations. All Eyes are now on the Various Ministers and how they will respond to the latest revelations from the Man himself, Dunena Reid of Mad Mad World.

After the break WWBN-UK Continues it's round the clock coverage of the 2011 Glastonbury Festival, taking place at Worthy Farm in the UK where our own Cherry Clinger is keeping abreast of the top stories and gossip at iconic music festival with interviews with big names and newcomers alike in the Wrock scene including a exclusive with DJ Noiseworks and former one time Weird Sister Nathan Wright.

"In Global News today many Muggles the world over logged on to the unveiling of 'Pottermore' last night, a new co-production between 'JK', Warner Brothers and Muggle Game Man..Man..Manufacturer Sony. Promising to give Muggles and Wizards alike a whole new experience many prominent figures in the magical world have come out damning what they see as yet another crass profit making exercise at the expense of the magical community.

One Hogwarts teacher has stated that since this 'Pottermore thing' started they have been inundated with well over one thousand owls from worried parents, former students and others wishing to know if it would mean Muggles would be allowed to study at Hogwarts or.. worse the school was to give up it's long held stance amongst the only schools to not have it's own interweb network.

While many in the Wizarding World are concerned Woozle today speaking to WWBN-Japan was quoted as "Not at all Worried" while reminding Wizards and Muggles alike that "whatever Pottermore promises to be there is no doubt that with Sony it will only be a matter of time before hackers get it".

In other news the Australian Ministry of Magic has moved to deny any connection to a self-declaired witch jailed for recklessly causing serious injury and dangerous driving. The Australian Minister for Magic was quoted as calling the woman a 'Bloody Idiot' while reminding that no matter what world one thinks they belong to, the laws of Australia still apply.

"WWBN Today officially announced that it has apologized to American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump for allegations made about him on flagship nightly talk show Dunena's Mad Mad World hosted on WWBN. While the Minister was brought into a furor over recent alligations surrounding his private life it was the revelation of his secret Tuscan Villa that has lead to red faces and claims to 'Sue WWBN for every knurd it has'. Amid the turmoil ratings for WWBN's radio talk show have skyrocketed making it more popular then 'Clives Charms Hour'. Speaking to the head of WWBN it was quoted that 'Whoever Dunena is they're on to a good thing, and might just be the Wizarding Worlds answer to the Muggle World's 'Julian Assange'"

Your Links Not Working? Your Signature Not Showing? Lost.. Confused? Don't panic!

We have our own Tech Support!
No we won't fix your computer (well okay ask M nicely and sometimes she will) but it should point you in the right track to help you get comfy with the phpBB forum software Wizards Without Boundaries runs on.

It's got a few 'quirks' that the following should help you bash out.

1. WTF Why isn't my Signature Working? Why am I getting stupid emails!? AHH what's going on!?!

If your signature isn't working or you don't want to receive emails each time someone posts a reply:

You Need to click on Profile > Preferences

There should be a scary array of checkboxes which unfortunately have to be set up manually at first.
In these you can fix the following:

Always notify me of replies : set to NO!

Always attach my signature : set to YES!

Wait.. they're still not there Help!
Okay.. sometimes signatures won't appear on posts you've already made by default.
Lucky all you have to do is:
click Edit (Top Right Corner of a Post)
Click on the little on Options and tick the checkbox to Attach Signatures.
Click send and wola! Fixed!

2. I can't find the New Topic and Post Buttons!
New Topic is at the Bottom left of a forum. The Post Button is called Send

3. How do I fill in my Character's Profile?
Click on Profile Fill it all the basic information (we highly recommend word/writer/using gmail or a text editor so that you won't lose your work if something goes wrong!)
For additional information such as pets, characters email addresses etc. that is optional you don't need to fill in. But you can if you want!

3. Help! My Links in Posts Aren't Working!
Ah.. this will take a bit of getting used to if your from Proboards.
Links here are written without ".." marks. eg: [url=www.linkygoodness.com]

4. I did a Oopsie on a Post!
Don't fret.. see those little icons in the Top Left of your post. there should be one like ! which will report the post to staff. Fill in the reason and we'll get right onto fixing it up for you.

5. New Awesome Fancy Features!

All In One Approval/Registration:
In the old days newbies had to fill out a full application, then apply for a face claim, then apply for a power, register a animagus, and your pets and then would be able to go play on the board.

Not any more!

Here you can apply for your powers/Animagus and most other common things straight from the get go. You can even fill in extra optional information like your character's Email, Owl and other custom details.

You will notice a series of APPROVAL fields. Staff will fill these in as they approve each part of your profile, confirm and date them so that we have a record as well of what has/hasn't been approved.

Then when all is good you will get the BIG GREEN CHARACTER APPROVED! Your application will be moved to Approved Characters and Staff will assign you your Visa's. Congratulations, you're all good to play!

Another really useful button is the FAQ that will let you know more in depth stuff about how to do stuff. No comics there I'm afraid.

Easy Edit Wipe-on/Wipe-off Profiles!
Filling in your profile has never been easier! Forget the days of going through a bunch of menus. Instead just put your mouse over the field you want updated you should see a little Tech Support!!! (Info for Setting Up Your Account!) Edit icon.

Forget Photobucket! Check out the Gallery
Currently we don't have a in built blog system < Oh YES we do, you just need to request to have your characters blog created!
we DO have our very own Image Galley! where you can find WWB related images - including site art, graphics samples and photos of locations on the board. All members are welcome to host their own images to WWB as long as it meets the general graphics rules

You can also host your image directly as you post using the Host a Image Button (next to the table button) to make life even easier!

WWBN World News!
Got something that you want the whole world to know!? Big Ministry Hotshot been fired? House burnt down? Kittens running amok in London?? Nessie sighting in Loch Ness?? Don't just stand there report it to the 5 o'clock News! and make it a real sensation!

Keep your Character's stuff all together and dig deeper then ever before!
Ever wished you had a place to keep track of everything you've written for a character, or have some stuff that doesn't really fit into their profile? Ever wished you could find a central place to find out everything about someone elses character?

Now you can!

Each Character after approval is encouraged to post a Passport with their name here you can keep anything you have about them - Links to their threads, bits of information, tekas you've made and whatever else takes your fancy as long as it keeps to the graphics and site rules.
