Thank you for stopping off at the TheWizardingWorld | Harry Potter Fan Forum: Headmaster’s Welcome

We like to think that we’re a Harry Potter fan site - with a difference! The fact that we are a forum based community means that we give our users the freedom to create and control the content!

 

Do you have a theory about an aspect of the films and / or books that you’d like to get off of your chest?  Do you fancy yourself as a ‘J.K. Rowling in-the-making’ with stories and original pieces of fan fiction that pick up where the original stories left off? Or maybe you’re a serious collector whose amassed hoards of uniquely fascinating Harry Potter memorabilia that you’d like to showcase?

Sign up, become a student and you’ll be ‘sorted’ into your house; where you can design your own profile page, and start creating your own personalised ‘topics’ straight away. You can also join existing conversations with fellow fans by replying to ‘threads’ and discussions that pique your interest. Are you a true PotterHead? Find out by putting your knowledge to the test in our ‘quizzes and competitions’ sections, too!

Here at the TWWForums, a fan’s appreciation or passion for Harry Potter is recognised and rewarded - quite literally. Content that you create and posts that you make, win points for your house! Is your wand at the ready? Well, why not come on in and join us?   

 

The important thing to remember, is that this site can be whatever our users want it to be!   

  

About Us - What inspired the creation of TWWForums: A word from the Founder

I’m an avid Harry Potter fan, first and foremost. Having had previous experience of running and managing websites, I’m also passionate about the use and implementation of innovative software and technology - the TWWForums is the result of the combination of these two interests. Before work began on building this website, much of my time was spent searching the internet for other dedicated Harry Potter fan sites - I was going to need a few points of reference, after all! While it may come as little surprise that there are various floating all over the net, what was perhaps more shocking, was the fact that the majority of these sites are, for the most part, inactive.

 

A film and book franchise that is still as meaningfully relevant to global audiences, nineteen years after its original release, and yet this popularity isn’t being reflected through its fansites? Why? It was truly puzzling to me. Having done more research, I discovered that many of the websites are using outdated software - 10 years out of date, in some cases, so they are no longer fit for purpose. Some such websites were, for example; designed with image galleries in mind; and while these may indeed be compatible for viewing on a desktop, to scroll through reams and reams of photos on a tablet or mobile device, would surely be time consuming and off-putting for potential visitors. We live in an age where we want to access information quickly and easily. Keeping this in the forefront of my mind, I was intent on building a platform (9/34… See what I did there? Ha!) that was cleanly secure, contemporary, device and user friendly - a new type of site that can keep up with, and cater to, a new generation of Harry Potter fans! I am also really proud that this site can be fully integrated or interconnected with users’ social media pages - namely Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

      “Pandora jewellery brings personal stories to life, and the friendship, love, and bravery told in Harry Potter resonates with Pandora’s fans.”

On the back disc, the edges are detailed with crenellations, in reference to the battlements of Hogwarts Castle and a bail shaped like the Hogwarts crest.”
