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.

      Firstly, thank you for joining our community and to our returning students a very warm welcome back!
       


      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.

      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.
       
      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. 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 of 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.
