We take spelling and grammar quite seriously.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Just as a caveat, if English is your second language, then we will cut you some slack. We expect you to do your best on spelling and grammar but your best might not be perfect English. We just want to see you trying.

English is my first and unfortnatly only language. Dyslexic makes it quite dificult... will this fall into the "doing your best"?

I believe we are able to see the difference between dyslexia and sloppiness.

Just do your best and don't lose hope for that particular reason.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

This may seem like a bit of a silly question, but i read in the admission rules that someone is allowed to inquire to the mods about whether or not another member is under consideration for admission to Hogsmeade and they will receive a yes or no answer. Are we allowed to ask about our own consideration into Hogsmeade or does someone else have to ask on our behalf?

You can ask for yourself, too, but please do so via owl.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

With the 'Through the Trap Door' contest going on, I guess it will take a long time for new students to get Hogsmeade access.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I'm not sure whether this post goes here but as its relevant:

Do our user titles automatically change depending on number of posts or experience?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Yes, your usertitle will change based on the number of posts you have. You can see when you reach the next year at the Post / Year list

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Hi, I have not been able to find a few sections that are required to get into Hogsmeade. I can not find Hogwarts Archive and Post DH Reference Books. Where are they?

Thanks!

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

The Archives and Reference areas are no longer open for posting, they're there to store older threads.

You don't need to post in all sections to get permission to Hogsmeade. In fact we rather look for substance of thoughts and longer posts than for spreading them widely or make as many posts as possible in fast time.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

It wasn't intended to be read in exactly that way.

To post in just a few of the mentioned forums is enough. And the archive forums are listed only because if a thread where you have posted is moved to the archive, your post still counts.

But there are some people who have different titles other than those in the Post/Year list thread?

I havent been active for several months, but I've been posting regularly before and after that, will this count against me? Also I feel that I cant make more than about 7 posts a day will this affect me in anyway?

Back a few years ago people who contributed to the site in some way got special usertitles. Recently for particular participants of forum contests got some too. Since we had many contests this increased a bit.

Seven posts a day is definitely enough to be considered for Hogsmeade, no worries. We take in account that with HP being finished we all aren't as insane anymore when it comes to discussing the series. One wouldn't be considered for Hogsmeade during an inactive phase, but it won't count against you if being active again later. It's just normal to have times in RL were there is just no time left for online communities.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

If I post a lot in chatty-style forums like the Sorting Hat and only a little in the serious forums like the Stone and Muggle Studies, does that count against me?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

No, having fun in the chatting area doesn't count against you - it shows that you enjoy the time you spend here, what's a plus actually. Chatting in the Stone would, but I know you don't do that.

I'd be extremely lucky if mods could see those seven poor posts between the hundred or so posts, posted everyday
