Hi, thanks for the welcome! I've been a Harry Potter fan for about two decades now and have been looking for a place like this for a while now. :) I'm really glad I stumbled on this place!

By the way, none of the links above work. :(

Hi!

 

We haven’t been open long and like with most things it takes a while to build up members and content. But we’re getting there, I’m competing against some communities that have been around for years! But these are old websites which are not optimised for today’s technologies and devices.

 

I run this by myself with help form a couple members who have been really helpful and kind.

 

I try to post deals on merchandise that I find, new products coming out and discussions about the wizarding world. I’ve also setup a points system (on going project) to act like the house points from the series, quizzes (members can also make their own and share them) but mainly I’ve set it up for a place for all Harry Potter fans to meet. As a forum topics and posts won’t be lost or hidden unlike Twitter or Facebook.

 

As I’ve said we haven’t been open to long but I’m open to all ideas, comments and suggestions in order to make it a fun place to be. 🥰

 

Thanks for joining TWWForums! 🤗

Well, I really like the house sorting and the points system idea! Usually they only have that on HP rpg sites, so I was really excited to find that here! Well, let me know if there are ways I can help too. :)

It has been mentioned to add a RPG on the forum. I had the idea to use the 'clubs sections' as classrooms? As each club can have topics, quizzes etc etc. Something I'm open to.

I'm working with someone to make the points more advanced and hopefully run a few competitions in the future. One idea is at the end of the school year, the person within their house who earns the most points (contributing posts) will win a price. After which I can decorate the site with the winning house.

 

Right now I'm consentrating on advertising and word of mouth, and really want to push the site and get it noticed. The more people sign up and actually post the more other will see and encourage them to sign up and be invovled. :)

 

Love to hear any ideas you may have or would like to see! Best thing about the forums is that it's for the members, it's their site collectively. :default_yahoo:

Actually, I like the idea of classrooms in the club section! Maybe you can get points for participation in the classrooms, maybe that can lead to going up a grade...? And I wonder if there is a way to get some activity going in those clubs? It also would be fun to have quizzes like to find out our patronus and wand and be able to post that somehow on our profile. It would be kind of cool if there could be some Pottermore-ish aspects. But I say that because I got Gryffindor on Pottermore and I don't think it reflects my personality at all. So I'm quite frustrated with that site for that reason lol. :default_tongue:

That's why I have two accounts on Pottermore! :default_rofl:

I joined when it was in beta testing
Congratulations-Screen-Pottermore-registration-660x330.jpg.968b06c7ca25b112c4c0ab367b25aa68.jpg

 

I got sorted into Hufflepuff which didn't reflect me at all either....

So I continued with the account until it opened and I rejoined and got Gryffindor, was much happier!

Quizzes is already enabled but it can't do patronus's and wand's and never will and goes far beyond what I can do.

 

But the clubs can earn points too:
Per Topic, Per Reply, Per Topic Starter, Per Reaction (Giver), Per Reaction, (Receiver), Per Vote, Per Vote (Poll Owner)

Members can earn points for making a topic and replying and from people replying to their topics.

 

I can add a patronus section to the profile (obviously this would be from Pottermore), and you just type what you got.

Well for one thing, at least I know the group promotions work. After 10 posts you're changed to a 'Hogwarts Student' and become a full member, after your first year your group gets promoted to 2nd year student and so forth.

As your Hufflepuff Prefect I'd like to welcome you to Hogwarts. Please check out our common room - it's super cosy in there!

(I'm sorry I didn't welcome you sooner. I'm recovering from a broken bone at the moment so am not as active on here as I'd like! I hope to be home soon so I can around a bit more!)

Thanks for the welcome! I'll be sure to check out the common room. Actually, I think I forgot to do so since I was sorted. :P Oh no, are you at the hospital or something? What did you break? I hope you get better soon!

I broke a bone in my leg, just above the foot. I'm currently in a rehabilitation centre as my house has tons of stairs, and have an appointment with the fracture clinic tomorrow so hopefully will know a bit more about how long it should take to heal, and how much longer I may need to stay here!

      Welcome to TheWizardingWorld a friendly and welcoming Harry Potter Community dedicated to the fans.
       


      We're a fan site dedicated to all things Harry Potter! Our website uses a forum/bullitin board as the heart of our community. TWWForums members, once registered and logged in, can create topics, post replies to existing threads, join one of the four houses, earn house points, get your own private messenger, take part in quizzes, and so, so much more.
       
      A little bit about us and what started our journey
      I can hear you now, 'not another website', why should I join? What do I get, what's in it for me, and why have you made the website?

      I have always wanted to create a website/community and to be forum based. I have experiences in the past of running websites and forums, one of the biggest for me was way back in the early 2000s. I had over 4000 members and done reasonably well.
      It seems the older I get the more and more I get into the Harry Potter Universe. So while over the years I've been learning how to run and host websites, I thought now would be a good a time as any to start a new challenge, albeit 17 years late!
       
      So in the middle of 2016, I set off on my new path to find active forums dedicated to Harry Potter and to my surprise I found many, yet over 80% were either dead communities, or hardly active. But my biggest issue I found while searching Google is that many seemed stuck in the early 2000's in terms of software and design. Some sites were using software that was 10 years out of date! Some were designed with loads and load and loads of pictures, what a nightmare that must look on a mobile or tablet! That fact was, they were just old and hadn't moved on.....
       
      While continuing my search I found some used EOL (End of Life) software which are no longer support and could potentially be hacked, putting the members and their site at risk, which to me makes me think the staff put the site in a low priority list. There simply is no excuse for it and something I will not tolerate, nor expect any member to accept.
      Now while some of the site designs are 6-10+ years old and are great for desktops, these just simply don't work for mobile/tablets devices these days. And this is where I found my niche, provide a platform which is modern, clean and device friendly while incorporating the latest social media's namely: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and GooglePlus.

      The Wizarding World | Harry Potter Fan Forums will always use the latest and modern software, my aim is to make it clean, fluid and user friendly. (And that's the biggest part for me to get right, BEING USER FRIENDLY).
       
      So, how you can you get involved?
      So, you've thought about joining TWWForums (TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forums), A friendly and welcoming community for fans of Harry Potter!

      Introductions:
      Once registered, why not take a walk over to platform 9 3/4. This is were you'll introduce yourself to the rest of the Hogwarts Students. Click here to visit Platform 9 3/4.
       
      TWWForum House Points
      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.
       
      Features:
      New members get on signup. 5 Points Top points widget to display the members with the top points. This will be shown in the sidebar. New members get for each post. 1 Point Members points for new topics, replies are given in each forum. 2 Point The topic starter (if someone replies to their topic in each forum). 1 Point 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 Harry Potter related 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.
