Welcome to TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forum and another year at Hogwarts! Now, in a few moments you will pass through these doors and join your classmates. But before you take your seats, you must be sorted into your houses. They are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.


House Points for your chosen 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.

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.


Here's what to expect and how you can get involved:
So, you've joined TWW (The Wizarding World), First thing's first. Let's get to know you by creating an introduction post. Tell us about yourself, your love for all things Harry Potter and what got you hooked! After that, make your way around the community and after 10 substantive posts you can make your way to sorting hat to be sorted into your houses.
While you are at TWW your triumphs will earn you House Points, while any rule-breaking will lose House Points. At the end of the year, the House with the most points is awarded the House Cup. Once you're sorted you'll be able to access the common rooms.

 

Finally:

If you recruit/recommend a member, you get 20 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.

      Check the first part here. We're gonna continue to sort the astrology signs a.k.a. zodiacs into Hogwarts houses. I'll make it simpler tho. Anyway, let's go!
       
      HUFFLEPUFF: Taurus, Virgo, Libra
       
      7. Taurus

      The fancy sign! Taurus is known for being chill, easy-going, simple, patient, and rich. Taurus likes to have many friends, many foods, and many spare time. Taurus can be annoying when they appear as lazy and stubborn, but they're quite loyal too. Taurus is the sign of comfort. Oh, they also love anything beautiful!
       
      8. Virgo

      Virgo is perfectionist and hard-working. As the typical Hufflepuff, they're not afraid of toil. Some Virgo even hates to have nothing to do. They're obsessed to work as and they want their work finished in the best way possible. This can make Virgo smarter than some Ravenclaw or more ambitious than Slytherine. But outside of that, Virgo is really easy-going and not judging. They can be so fun and cheerful as a friend.
       
      9. Libra

      Balance isn't just what Libra is known for. They're known to be people-oriented and loyal. Libra loves to have discussion as much as making new friends. Libra is very likable and most of them are also very charming. Libra also likes beauty dan culture.
       
      SLYTHERIN: Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn
       
      10. Scorpio

      Deep, detailed, serious, mysterious, likes to keeping secrets, Scorpio is charming because of that traits. But a Scorpion can also be deeply sensitive, very opened about their feelings, and seriously fun! Scorpio sees the world as black and white. They're an extremist. But from them we can learn many new things that usually, we don't pay attention about it. Scorpio isn't just a leader material, they can also lead in bed. Sometimes they can be appear as creepy. Don't worry guys, it's not that they're pervert, they just know how to appreciate sex.
       
      11. Cancer

      Romantic. Cancer can appear as shy. But once they can trust you, Cancer has so many stories to tell. Cancer appreciates love and kindness, but they're so afraid to be betrayed so they make a huge barrier from people. They can also be so manipulative to protect themselves from harm. But deep inside, Cancer is your softest friend.
       
       
      12. Capricorn

      Capricorn is the businessman. They're ambitious and visionary. They love working and money and also know how to get it. They're superior and great, but not really in good at loving someone. Capricorn can't love somebody easily, but when they do, they will do anything for that person. 
       
      Finally...
      Tell us what's your astrology sign?  Does it fit your house? Which sign actually fits your personality the most?

      If you were at Hogwarts during the time Dumbledore's army is organised, would you have joined?

      By Dumbledore
      Taking the life you know now and transforming it into a 'Wizard Family' in the Wizarding World, would you have a house Elf to help with chores? Or would you be joining Hermione in support her S.P.E.W society?
