House Prefect - Gryffindor, Hogwarts positions (Common Room Prefect)
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.
We're looking for one person to look after one of the four Houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin.
Does this sound like a position for you? If so then please do apply.
Today I'd like to know, how many of you took the Pottermore house quiz? Do you agree with the house you were placed in? Is that the house you were expecting / hoping to be in? How did you react to the house you were placed in? And, is that the house you are using on this site, or are you in your preferred house on here?
I took the quiz ages ago, and was not surprised to be placed in Hufflepuff. People have always told me that I am loyal and kind. When Harry Potter first came out, my siblings and I discussed which houses we'd be in. All my siblings told me I was a Hufflepuff! However, like a lot of people, we all identified with Gryffindor originally as the main heros are of course in Gryffindor. (I may also have had a crush on one of the main characters!) I would now place one of my sisters in Slytherin, and my other sister and brother in Gryffindor!
I'm very proud to be a Hufflepuff! I know lots of people don't want to be in Hufflepuff, but I love being a Hufflepuff. I am almost 100% sure that if I placed that sorting hat onto my head right now it would not hesitate to place me in Hufflepuff!
Interestingly I also took the Ilvermorny part of the quiz and was sorted in Thunderbird house, which apparently favours adventurers. I'd have preferred Pukwudgie House as it favours Healers, which I think better fits both Hufflepuffs and one of my preferred magical careers!
