Please remember that the
COS Forums conduct notice
is in full swing here also
COS Forums Conduct notice
Welcome one and all to the Deathly Hallows Discussion Forum.
So, now that the final book is here, you may all begin your discussion of the story that we've all been waiting for.
general notice of conduct, zero tolerance & fan submitted work
This icon is the report button. It appears in every post someone makes. Use it when you feel it needs using.
There is a general two-month ban on discussing DH outside of this area. We will lift the ban on . The date is subject to change. September 24th
Anyone caught posting Spoilers outside the Deathly Hallows area will be subject to a three-point warning if they have been a member for longer than 30 days. For members under the 30-day period, they will be issued with a one-point warning. Second offences will result in an instant banning for either group.
No one may include spoilers in their signature, avatar or anywhere in their profiles. This instruction lasts for 45 days from the day of this thread creation. The 45 days are subject to change, either an increase or decrease.
Use of the Wizengamot for questions related to the Deathly Hallows discussion area is prohibited. Please use the High Inquisitor's Chamber.
Members are requested to moderate their tone and be sensitive to those whose theories are proven inaccurate or altogether, wrong. Regardless of the personal gratification you may take in being proven right, you will not last more than ten seconds as a member here and will be forgotten several seconds after we have banned you, if, you decide to act out your pleasure on here.
If you are in receipt of a private message (Owl) where a member conducts themselves in a manner similar to the General Conduct notice above, you may forward such an owl onto a member of staff and we will action it accordingly. If you fake such a message we will know and you will be banned. If the message is genuine, we will warn/ban the member involved depending on the severity. I would like to point out that a heated argument is not the same as a blatant poke with the 'you're wrong' stick.
Private Messages are there for you to engage in conversation that may get heated, that would normally be removed on public forums. If you yourself have engaged or baited the person into saying something, you won't get very far if you report it to us.
Additionally, please inform us if you receive spam messages of any kind, in particular people spoiling the book.
Fanfiction & Art
All fan submissions related to the Deathly Hallows must be made in their relevant areas "Flourish & Blotts - New Premises" and "Hallowed Masterpieces" and any subforums within them. You may not post them outside the area. You may not link them in your signature. More on that below.
Signatures, Profiles etc...
No book 7 related information maybe included in your signature until after the spoiler policy is over. That means you may not have avatars, signatures or link threads of importance in the Deathly Hallows area in your profile/signature. If you do so, you will have the links removed and be warned.
As always forum rules apply. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact a staff member
Better to ask the question than be proven wrong.
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
