Question: Why was my introduction thread closed?
Answer: CoS only permits one thread to introductions, which can be located in the Great Hall forum. It is a sticky thread so you shouldn't miss it!
Question: Why can't I see a thread I recently created?
Answer: The thread may have been closed/moved/merged/deleted depending on the content. It is important to do a search before you post your thread just to make sure your topic has not been discussed already. Please note that The Department of International Magical Cooperation operates a Moderation Queue, which means your thread goes into a waiting list for approval by a member of staff.
