Get Sorted into Your IGGPPC House

Oh, you may not think I’m pretty, but don’t judge on what you see, I’ll eat myself if you can find a smarter hat than me. The House Forums are private and require special access to get into them. Want to know how to get into your House? Read on, traveller…

At IGGPPC we use a house system to organise our iggles for pairing up pen pals, build community spirit and get some friendly house rivalry going on! Each house has its own private forum for members to chat in and as you age you will move up the houses. Everyone is destined to land in House Organa in the end!

I am in a House but can’t get into my Common Room 2018-03-03T10:06:56+00:00

To get access to your House, email rosa@geekgirlpenpals.com with the subject line, “Access to House Common Room,” and be sure to include your username on the site, and which House you are requesting access to. Then we can let you into the Common Room. We don’t leave the Common Rooms open to avoid problems like creepers and trolls, goblins and knolls, so we grant access individually with your username!
