At Hogwarts there are many extracurricular activities and clubs that have been formed over the many, many years for young witches and wizards to enjoy in whatever free time they might have.
Clubs are a brand new way of supporting sub-communities within TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forums
Four types of club are available:
Clubs that anyone can see and participate in without joining.
Clubs that anyone can see and join.
Clubs that anyone can see in the directory, but joining must be approved by a Club Leader or Club Moderator. Non-club-members who view the club will only see the member list - not the recent activity or content areas.
Clubs that do not show in public, and users must be invited by a Club Leader or Club Moderator
Each club must have a staff member willing to volunteer as a mentor, not only to help facilitate events and arrange meeting times and places, but also to help overcome house rivalries, as clubs are inter-house organisations.
Each club has three levels of user:
A leader has all of the permissions of a moderator, and can add other moderators. They can also add content areas (see below). The club owner is automatically a leader.
Moderators, as the name implies, have the ability to moderate content posted within the club. As the site administrator, you can define which moderator tools can be used. You could, for example, prevent any content being deleted from clubs, but allow it to be hidden. Moderators can also remove members from a club.
Anyone else that joins the club.
Club Leaders can add a variety of content areas to their club - forums, calendars and so on. Each content area a leader adds can have a custom title, and will appear in the club navigation. This means, for example, that you can have multiple forums within a club, and give each a different name.
You can show your support and join any one of these clubs in our communites or even start your own!
