What is a House Prefect?
A prefect at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is a student who has been given extra authority and responsibilities by the Head of House and Headmaster. One male and one female student are chosen from each house in their fifth year to act as prefects. They would continue to be prefects in their sixth and seventh years until they leave school.
Prefects are allowed to take House points away from houses, but they are not allowed to take points from other prefects. Prefects can give detentions as a form of punishment.
What is a House Prefect (forum moderator)?
A forum moderator oversees the communication activity of an Internet forum. He/She monitors the contributors (members) and makes decisions regarding content and the direction of threads. Moving discussions from one section to another to keep topics organized is also a common job for a forum moderator. If the forum becomes hostile or starts to move in the direction of personal attacks, the forum moderator usually has the discretion to lock the discussion to prevent heated, interchanges. He may also be able to hide discussions he deems unworthy of further discussion.
Duties of a forum moderator may include moving discussions (threads/posts) to more appropriate sections, closing or locking threads based on dwindling interest or lack of recent activity of merely going off-topic, editing posts for clarity or content, and deleting threads. Thread deletion can either be temporary or permanent, depending on the wishes of the forum moderator, although you'll also have the power to hide posts/threads. If an abusive contributor refuses to cease unacceptable behaviour, the forum moderator will the discretion to ban the user, but this is used as a last resort.
What can you do?
Edit, close, open, move, delete and lock and finally pin threads.
Suspend and ban members.

Calling all Creatives:
Have you had aspirations of writing for the Daily Prophet? Well, while we may not be able to help you realise that particular dream, we would like to think that here at TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forum, we can offer the next best thing, because we are currently on the lookout for content creators to join our team. Can you sniff out an exciting Harry Potter story? Can you provide quick, creatively current write ups on anything from newly released Harry Potter clothing lines, to news of someone paragliding down the French Alps in full Harry Potter costume (yes, that did actually happen)! However unbelievable or unremarkable a story may seem; if you find something Harry Potter related, that you think fellow fans ought to know about too, then we’d love for you tell us about it here on the forums first!
If writing’s not for you, don’t worry though, because there are also several other ways that we are looking to grow our community and have you involved. Do you fancy yourself as more of a House Prefect, perhaps? We want those, too….
