Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Couldnt you guys give feedback. like saying ok, you suck at this and this and this ... that is why you are not in.

I have been told my punctuation sucks. And that helps me try to improve , (well , I quitted, but was trying to improve) at this specific aspect, but if you just say qualifying posts, and one thinks ones post are ok, one might never improve.

I know you guys have a life. But I think one would like to know why others can make it and one cannot.

Those who haven't posted at all for a considerable time are perhaps not on the top of the list.
Mainly because it doesn't make sense to give access to someone who may have abandoned us forever.

But regular posters are fine even if they don't post every day.

We can't tell anything about this in detail, for particular never giving out information about other members. Reasons why one gets in faster or slower can be manifold, mostly it's one issue violating the Hogsmeade guidelines only.

The best advice for what we consider as a good post is, is to find here.

good postBest way to answer this is to show you what constitutes a bad post. A bad post is something that contains very little information or ideas. One-lined replies repeated throughout the forums by the same person won't work. Attempting to boost your post count in the qualifying areas will not get you into Hogsmeade. See our points above. A good post is something that contains information that helps the thread evolve and give people other means to debate Harry Potter.


I would try to stick to what several members of staff have told you in owls over the last months. It will help you getting into Hogsmeade. Additionally just have fun around.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I think it's kind of strange for a qualifying area to be Anime. Not everyone watches it, so what would they post there if they didn't watch it.

You don't have to post in every single one of the qualifying areas to get into HM. It just means that the posts you do make in a section will be counted.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

How often do you pick people for Hogsmeade?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

There's no rule to it. Sometimes a bunch is picked already one week after the latest, sometimes it actually takes months.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Quick question.

In my case I've been inactive for quite a while, but am going to get back into it. Do I start off from scratch again, or do my posts from bfore the lay-off count?

For post count, the posts beforehand count. However, your posts since you got back will probably be more important for your candidacy, once you achieve the 300 total posts .

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

How do you guys discern between someone who is on here posting everyday. And someone how is trying to up their post numbers? I know part of this may be a simple answer, but I have had people tell me I need to slow down on my posting due to that very fact!

So if I'm making my best effort at putting in well thought out posts that aid the thread and gives the other members more to talk about; should I be worried at all?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

A considerable number of posts lacking any effort to contribute usually gives a post count booster away very quickly.

If you do that in a friendly way, the answer is: Nope.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

Ok thank you!

Another question I just got is when you say qualified post do you mean over 300 post, as in not matter if their short, like what is shown to the right of our name. Or do you mean 300 well thought out post that move the thread, don't insult/ hurt/ and are not rude to any other member, post? Mainly do you mean 300 posts that you deem acceptable?

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

If you reach 300 posts, you're eligible. If there are rude or snarky posts, it would count against you for getting in directly, but you're still technically eligible. Most members actually have more posts when entering Hogsmeade. Just have fun around and it most likely will happen.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I saw a member yesterday who had less than 300 posts but had an avatar (so I assume he/she had Hogsmeade access) and it wasn't a special profile made for elections. Am I going crazy?

You may go under the 300 req post count and still be in Hogsmeade so long as you have met the req before entry

So chances are the member was accepted into Hogsmeade and then some of their posts were culled to drop them below the 300 posts. It happens occasionally.

Re: Comments on: Admission to Hogsmeade

I know this is kind of a silly question; but does political views affect who you pick? If, for instance, a person is very active in political discussions and have strong opinions, do you think "we won't choose that person, he/she will cause trouble?" Or if a person said they were a nazi (hopefully they would then be excluded from the site) would that count against them, or would you allow them to join if they fit the demands?
