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'"

What we stand for?

Equal, Open, Fair, Balanced, Safe, Friendly and Fun
Equal:
Here at Wizards Without Boundaries we believe that everyone from the guests, Members, old friends and new, right to the staff team are equally important to creating a vibrant and interesting world and community.

This board was created to fill a gap and give every member, no matter how new or old, experienced at roleplaying or just starting out, the change to improve, learn, have fun and leave a lasting mark on the universe.

As part of this Wizards Without Boundaries was designed to be accessible to anyone. While it would be easy to have a big flashy site following the latest rp trends instead we felt it better to have a clear site that anyone can enjoy, hand made to make the most of what was available.

Which we ask members to please be sensible with changing fonts/colours etc. and to please post with proper English, punctuation and spelling. Remember in the end roleplay is about writing, not fashion.

Wizards Without Boundaries aims to grow with you, we provide a blank slate where you can request new places, groups, organisations and even apply to run your own parts of the board to expand the world.

Open:
At Wizards Without Boundaries we work on the principal that all members are responsible for their own actions. We try to be lighter on over the top filters and censorship and instead expect all members to act sensibly and with respect to one another.

At Wizards Without Boundaries we aim to be open and accountable so that you will always know what is going on and more importantly why.

To this aim we will be working to make clear the Wizards Without Boundaries policy on all rules and how issues are to be dealt with so that members and staff alike are aware and able to check for themselves.

Fair:
Tired of putting all your effort into rping and seeing nothing for it? Or feel left out in the action? Want more from your RP?

At Wizards Without Boundaries we aim to have a transparent system where any member who roleplay consistently, provide a good and positive service to the board and wants to take on the challenge can apply to found a school or adopt one of the current schools, take on the CEO of a major wizard organisation or charity.

In addition every member can request landmarks and locations to be added to the board. Forget having to play in a small set of places, instead roleplay where you want to play, it could be the town you live in, a place your character is from or just a place that we haven't had a chance to build yet.

Balanced:
Balance is the key to rp on Wizards Without Boundaries. We aim to provide a world that is close to real life with just that added touch of Potterverse Magic we all know and love. For that reason we may on occasion request edits or suggestions to help bring a character closer to realism.

Here our aim is not to just tell the stories of the rich, powerful and perfect but to focus on the everyday amazing people that make up this world.

Wizards Without Boundaries is about the people you might meet down the street, not on a tv screen.

That's not to say that we won't accept rich, powerful or attractive people, but they must be well rounded with flaws like everyone else!

Safe:
Wizards Without Boundaries may be a brand new site but behind it we have members and staff with years of roleplaying experience (often surpassing my own!) right down to the newest of newbies.

Here we believe that nobody should ever feel afraid to speak up about problems and will actively work to deal with problems no matter how big or small they might seem.

Most of all should you ever feel unfairly treated by staff or another member you have a range of options from reporting a post to sending a email to Staff all the way to confidentially submitting a Abuse Report. You can find links to both Contact and Report at the bottom of every page and the icon to submit a post to staff on the top right corner of every post.

Friendly:
It's a scary ride going from a newbie to a bringing a site to life. I still remember being freaked out and how important it was for my confidence to hear a kind word at the right time.

Here at Wizards Without Borders we aim to be friendly, welcoming to all and do everything we can to make roleplaying easy and enjoyable no matter your level or experience. Our aim is to make this site a great place to come to, not just to write but to chat and get to know people from all over the world.

To do this we go to a lot of effort to make sure no member is left out with nothing to do. We're starting small so that everyone gets off on the right foot and gets the best chance for input into the direction of Wizards Without Boundaries.

Fun:
Most of all, Wizards Without Boundaries should be fun! For everyone!

We work actively to encourage members to roleplay with people they have never met, organise crazy events and group threads or just give you guys room to sit back and have a laugh in the chatbox.

We're here for fun too, and for the love of building this world with you guys.

A happy staff team make a happy site, and happy members make happy staff, upsets do happen but we aim to do everything we can to deal with them to the best of our abilities, and do so following the above key principals of equality, fairness, openness, transparency, safety, friendliness and of course fun.

As part of this we will have our rules which are lifeblood to keeping things fair for everyone and stops the board becoming a free for all. We try hard to keep rules reasonable and enforce rules not to make things less fun, but to ensure that the board remains consistent, peace is maintained and Wizards Without Boundaries is always the best place it can be.

In return we expect you guys to be good enough to give us the benefit of the doubt, we're not always going to be perfect, and not always going to say yes to everything but we'll always offer alternatives, ideas and do our best to so that everyone can get the most out of the site.

This is what Wizards Without Boundaries is about, we're putting this up front so that every member, visitor, guest or other will know why Wizards Without Boundaries exists and how we expect members, guests and ourselves to behave.

We hold ourselves to these principals, and expect our members to hold to them as well.


With Love,

M and "Q"
