Re: Comment on: CoS Forums Closure

Now this was one of the reasons I loved COS Forums. About the question asked a while back. Do you guys have a backup of the forum somewhere. Also how large is it?

Iggy needs no reminding. Iggy just IS.

Re: Comment on: CoS Forums Closure

Hey all,

I haven't been on here in years, many many years. Heard the site was closing, and just wanted to drop in and say thanks to Matt, and all the staff and members here, for making this not only the best Harry Potter discussion forum, but also a home away from home for many of us. I remember a time when CoS was where I lived. CoS helped me to become a somewhat intelligent conversationalist (such strict rules here after all ), how to write a paper or a story, taught me how to debate, how to deal with not only making friends but also social dilemmas that I really wasn't able to experience at school. Helped me mature. It even, indirectly, started my career as a web developer in my misguided attempt to create a site that rivaled CoS.

I will always miss this home of mine.

Really? If we're using pink we're only one step away from glitter and we all know where that can lead

My inner Eye tells me that Filch will be trilled to clean up the glitter. Pink glitter is his favourite...

*peeks in*

Did Umbridge's interior decorator come have a look at the place? I see pink and kittens.

Professor! Good of you to step down from the Tower to join us.

I was almost Umbridge's interior decorator, but she thought I was too over the top.
And scary.

I very seldom post, but I spend a lot of time just reading the old theories that were posted before the release of Deathly Hallows. There are still a few that could still be true and might later be revealed by JKR. Maybe we should start a list of the threads we would like saved and someone could let us know what site these threads are saved to so we would know where to go upon any major revelation of JKR.

Re: Comment on: CoS Forums Closure

Don't forget to save your pics from your albums!

You don't want to lose your pink pony or any other pink animal pics, do you? Like mine here


You better go and save them all.

What does that mean you have no pink animal pics?


Now where did I save the one where Morgoth is wearing a pink tutu...

Re: Comment on: CoS Forums Closure

This was my home away from home (dissendium.com being my 'home', which shut down years ago) when I was writing my fanfic, Harry Potter and the Gift of the Founders. I will always remember the thrill I had every time I posted a new chapter and refreshed often afterward to see people's reactions. It was a great way to waste my time and find I had a latent talent.

...And I will miss coming back periodically to see if I am still on page 1 of most viewed in F&B.

This well organized mind says farewell...

Re: Comment on: CoS Forums Closure

I left my "thanks and goodbye" post a few days ago but for some reason still kept lurking on this thread because EVERYONE's coming back to do the same thing, and it's like a mini-reunion, only sad. Well, kind of - not so sad recently due to the pink and glitter and unicorns which have taken over the last page and brought back some of the insanity of the old days. Good work guys.

The prank threads are marked as such.

You can find more of the April 2009 prank in the Room of Requirement social group.

(and no, I wasn't here yet... but I have read a lot of the prank!)
I had forgotten all about this prank - loving the discussion threads started by Voldemort!

A pony!? Maybe we should return to the CoP, I'm sure people would find it as exciting as CoS. Ponies, puppies and pchocolate, what's not to love?
