Tim is messing around with group creators' privs in an attempt, I think, to guilt us into working on getting our groups more active. ;P

So, we now have the ability to let anyone upload pictures to this group, and choose one to be the primary picture! As we don't have any at all right now, I am hereby soliciting group pictures. (If we get a bunch we can then argue about which one should go up to.) The only rules are that any picture you submit should be created by you, and that it should have something to do with the topic of this group.

In other news, I'm currently in the middle of reorganizing and re-doing the cataloging of my 'parascience' collection. How do you organize your books on the paranormal, mythological, and Fortean? Using standard systems like Dewey and LoC tend to split things up into half-a-dozen separate spaces, but I'm struggling to come up with a better.

(Right now I'm debating throwing my hands up and going with primary subdivisions of 'transfiguration, charms, muggle studies, history of magic, care of magical creatures, herbology, astronomy, ancient runes, divination, potions, arithmancy and defense against the dark arts')

I'm sorry, did you say "muggle studies"?

...yes. That would be where I'm piling the True Crime and conspiracy theory type stuff - that doesn't really have any supernatural elements but belongs in the collection anyway.

(Those are all Harry Potter subjects, if you didn't catch the rest of the reference. ;P I'm also debating going with 'hyperstellar archeology' as one of the categories though.)

Oh, I got that muggle was from Rowling, but I didn't realize that the whole system was Hogwarts'. Yeah, I'm just one of the benighted souls that refuse to immerse myself in the glory that is Harry Potter, peace be upon him and his knock-offs in saecula saeculorum. A declared muggle, if you will.

...I didn't know it was still *possible* to not know the basics of Harry Potter. Good on you!

Half the fun I got out of it when I started reading them was picking out which of the books in my magic & folklore reference library were also obviously in JKR's. :D
