Re: Questions from New Members

It's short for "Role Playing Game".

And questions like yours illustrate why this site discourages the use of acronyms. How are new members who don't play those games supposed to know this, especially members who speak English as a second language?

Re: Questions from New Members

For some reason my posts aren't displaying the number posts I have done (top right corner). This will be my third post; do I have to wait for it to update itself or is there someone I need to change on my options?

Hey Adam,

in some areas like the Great Hall the post count is off. Making posts in this areas won't rise your post count. To see in which areas it's off read the forum describtions on the main page. It's written there, when it's off.

It says in the Hogsmeade link that there is a debate thread, but I can't seem to find it. I'm probably just not understanding something though....sorry

Re: Questions from New Members

Here is some information on Hogsmeade:
Hogsmeade FAQs

There is also a bunch of different topics for debating in the Department of International Magical Cooperation sub-form. If you go to the Chamber of Secrets homepage and scroll down, you will see it.
Hope that helps!

Re: Questions from New Members

Going through the forums, i see some peoples avatars (I think thats what they are called) saying that they won third place for a writing contest or something like that. I was wondering if there was a thread to let people know that there is a writing contest.

Thanks in advance

Re: Questions from New Members

Welcome to the forums! To have an avatar, you have to be a Hogsmeade student. There's info about Hogsmeade HERE.
