Be interested if anyone found it via Google? And if so, what search terms were used.

And that’s exactly why we now exist! No more topics and message getting lost, and hopefully easy to navigate.

      Hi all,

      I'm currently doing some behind the scenes updates to the site, as well as some visual changes.

      Currently we're updating the user ranks which can be found under your username. The previously outdated ones from when we're in beta testing are were in much need of a modern update. Also, your profile authorpane (which shows your name and posts and other info) now displays your main member group and your chosen Hogwarts house.
       
      Continuing with the Authorpane updates, you'll now see that everything has been neatened up and info is displayed on it's on line. This now includes the all important HOUSE POINTS! My OCD is now happy. (Those that have been around a while would've already seen this but it was removed due to some conflicts which have now be fixed).
       
      More updates to follow...

      Thank you for stopping off at the TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forum: Headmaster’s Welcome
      We like to think that we’re a Harry Potter fan site - with a difference! The fact that we are a forum based community means that we give our users the freedom to create and control the content!
       
      Do you have a theory about an aspect of the films and / or books that you’d like to get off of your chest?  Do you fancy yourself as a ‘J.K. Rowling in-the-making’ with stories and original pieces of fan fiction that pick up where the original stories left off? Or maybe you’re a serious collector whose amassed hoards of uniquely fascinating Harry Potter memorabilia that you’d like to showcase?
      Sign up, become a student and you’ll be ‘sorted’ into your house; where you can design your own profile page, and start creating your own personalised ‘topics’ straight away. You can also join existing conversations with fellow fans by replying to ‘threads’ and discussions that pique your interest. Are you a true PotterHead? Find out by putting your knowledge to the test in our ‘quizzes and competitions’ sections, too!
      Here at the TWWForums, a fan’s appreciation or passion for Harry Potter is recognised and rewarded - quite literally. Content that you create and posts that you make, win points for your house! Is your wand at the ready? Well, why not come on in and join us?   
       
      The important thing to remember, is that this site can be whatever our users want it to be!   
        
      About Us - What inspired the creation of TWWForums: A word from the Founder
      I’m an avid Harry Potter fan, first and foremost. Having had previous experience of running and managing websites, I’m also passionate about the use and implementation of innovative software and technology - the TWWForums is the result of the combination of these two interests. Before work began on building this website, much of my time was spent searching the internet for other dedicated Harry Potter fan sites - I was going to need a few points of reference, after all! While it may come as little surprise that there are various floating all over the net, what was perhaps more shocking, was the fact that the majority of these sites are, for the most part, inactive.
       
      A film and book franchise that is still as meaningfully relevant to global audiences, nineteen years after its original release, and yet this popularity isn’t being reflected through its fansites? Why? It was truly puzzling to me. Having done more research, I discovered that many of the websites are using outdated software - 10 years out of date, in some cases, so they are no longer fit for purpose. Some such websites were, for example; designed with image galleries in mind; and while these may indeed be compatible for viewing on a desktop, to scroll through reams and reams of photos on a tablet or mobile device, would surely be time consuming and off-putting for potential visitors. We live in an age where we want to access information quickly and easily. Keeping this in the forefront of my mind, I was intent on building a platform (9/34… See what I did there? Ha!) that was cleanly secure, contemporary, device and user friendly - a new type of site that can keep up with, and cater to, a new generation of Harry Potter fans! I am also really proud that this site can be fully integrated or interconnected with users’ social media pages - namely Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

      How to earn house points here at The Wizarding World | Harry Potter Fan Forums
      Quite simply you're rewarded for participating in discussions and being an active member of TWW Forums. Just like in the books and films each member of their respective house will earn house points.
       
      House Points for your chosen Hogwarts house:
      "While you are at TWWForums, your triumphs will earn you house points, while any rule-breaking will result in a loss house house points.
      At the end of the year, the house with the most points is awarded the house cup, a great honour."
      —Professor Minerva McGonagall
       
      The House Cup is a yearly award at Hogwarts (TWWForums). It is given at the end of the school year to the House with the most House points. Points are given to Houses by teachers and prefects throughout the year for various things including answering questions correctly and doing good deeds.
       
      Points can be taken away for things such as misbehaving or rule-breaking. Giant and enchanted hourglasses in the entrance hall keep track of the House Points. The hourglasses are filled with different jewels for each house - Gryffindor's are rubies, Ravenclaw's sapphires, Slytherin's emeralds and Hufflepuff's diamonds.
       
      The Points System for TWWForums
      Features:
      New students signup. 5 Points The topic starter. 2 Points Replies to the topic starter (if someone replies to their topic in each forum). 1 Point Students get for each post. 1 Point Log in at least once a day. 5 Points Log in at least once a week. 5 Points Log in at least once a month. 5 Points Top points widget to display the members with the top points. This will be shown in the sidebar. There will be a global points page to display all the recent points. Auto reset for points. Points are reset on the 1st September At the end of the year, the member with the most points will win a Haryy Potter prize!  
      Inviting friends earns you house points!
      If you recruit/recommend a member, you get 50 house points for each person you recruit/recommend to join. However, this person must be sorted for you to be rewarded, and they must mention that you referred them.
       
      Of course like most sites we do have some rules, please familiarise yourself with them:
      Our Guidelines. Privacy Policy Search the Site. Hogwarts Gallery. Make a date, the Calendar.  
      TheWizardingWorld community is here to help each other out, we share our love of all things Harry Potter and make friendships.

      What are forums and how do they work?
      An Internet forum is a discussion area on a website. Website members can post discussions and read and respond to posts by other forum members. A forum can be focused on nearly any subject and a sense of an online community, or virtual community, tends to develop among forum members. This type of forum may also be called a message board, discussion group, bulletin board, or web forum, but it differs from a blog, the name for a web log, as a blog is usually written by one user and usually only allows for the responses of others to the blog material. A forum usually allows all members to make posts and start new topics. An Internet forum is also different from a chat room. Members in a chat room usually all chat or communicate at the same time, while members in a discussion group post messages to be read by others whenever they happen to log on. Forums also tend to be more topic-focused than chat rooms. The separate conversations in a forum are called threads, and they are made up of member-written posts. Members can usually edit their own posts, start new topics, post in their choice of threads, and edit their profile. A profile usually lists optional information about each forum member, such as the city they are located in and their interests. We believe this sort of community with a message board is far superior to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Your posts will never be lost, and everyone can join in our conversations.
