Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Are there any particular reasons as to why someone won't get into hogsmeade, ever?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Members who, per our judgement, in one way or another do not meet the criteria listed in Hogsmeade Review Guidelines do not get in.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

If I put on an invisibility cloak, use a secret map, and be very quiet, can I sneak into Hogsmeade?

Nope. Best way to get in is to forget about it and make good posts. Good things come to those who wait.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Do the staff kind of have a 'record' which automatically recognises users which have passed the 300 posts count? Or do they have to actually look around for those users?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

We are all-knowing beings, it all goes by instinct and such ^_^

Nah we have our ways of selection but the process, that's something we keep to ourselves.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I think you are doing your best when recruiting members into Hogsmeade, but here is some critism. I noticed that a guy with around 800 posts isn't a Hogsmeade member, which makes me wondering if it's a place for special selected people or people with arguments that you selectors agree with. I know there are other factors that count too, like substance in the posts etc, but many people have lots of clever posts (much more than 300) and they are still not in Hogsmeade. And no, I am not one of those yet.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

It's actually impossible that it is about agreeing with arguments 'of staff' since we're no homogeneous group of humans. We neither have the same friends on this board only nor share the same opinions.

We just never share when there are problems with members due to privacy reasons. If one has currently a warning, they won't come in. If they keep ignoring to spell properly (but are able to and tell us they don't want to take care for it), they don't come in. If they stay inactive for some months, they won't come in just then but easily could come in the moment they're active again. Some members don't want to be in Hogsmeade and ask us to not promote them.

There are many reasons, but I guess it's understandable that we don't share them if it's due to some rule violation - which isn't visible for members since posts get deleted and owls not shared.
We select by the standards shown in the Hogsmeade review only, but we're always open to listen to suggestions why a member should be in. Might be we overlooked someone.
I btw had almost 800 posts when I came in, so it's not very unusual that some need to wait a bit longer - admitted the board was way busier back then since it was before the series was actually finished.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Okay! If I'd been in a position having 800 posts and not being into Hogsmeade I'd lost hope long ago. Why say yes then when you have been ignored all the time?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

If someone said 'no' at 300 posts, he still wouldn't be in Hogsmeade with 800 posts (or 2000). In my time climbing to ~800 posts was normal - but it was often done faster as well since we posted like insane to develop our super-clever HP theories...

Naturally! What if one haven't been asked at all? Forget about it. You are surely doing a great job.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Sure we do.

Ahem. It can be we really forgot someone, but usually active members are easy to spot (you need some activity to come in). In most cases where members wonder why A or B isn't in, it's due to some rule violation but which members can't see. So that's why I included that option.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Do we need to post in more than one qualifying area?
Why do we have to be a member of Hogsmeade to get an avatar? Is it because it's a motivating factor to get into there? I understand that and I realize I can't complain about it being unfair (as I often do), but I still want an avatar
Manipulation

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

One qualifying area is all fine, for particular if you're an mostly active member anyway.

The avatar rule was invented before I even became a member here, but I think it's indeed some extra privilege since Hogsmeade mostly just is a new area of the forums. Mostly... I think the chocolate pool actually is some nice place, too, which we don't have on the main board...

Chocolate pool?
Aha I was in the library yesterday and I came across some rare piece of magic. I think it's called, as I understand it, a chocolate. I thought perhaps you would have some? You're wondering why I am not asking the other Moderators? Well, they are not like you. They might misunderstand. An avatar is a useful thing by the way. It's pity I haven't one, but it's not a big deal I suppose. *looks disappointed, smiles* Here is your chocolate, madam Good night!

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I like the white background for the comments and threads. I can read them. Chocolate pool? Is this something techno? I am a bit lost about what you are discussing.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

The chocolate pool belongs to humour land. It's all very secret and complex.

Why is very secret and complex? I am not very computer savvy, so if it's related to working on computers, I guess it would be complex. I don't mind relaxing, that's why I am here at the forum, I am relaxing.
