Presumably it will appear on the upper right, opposite his username. Just like your own star(s). One is added for every year you've been on the forum. They turn pink (whatever their number) when you reach 1,000 posts - or is it 1,000 days? I can't remember now.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

It's 1000 days.
What are those stars?

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

You'll start seeing the sixth star around July-time. CoS was 6 years old in Feb for me. Officially though, it's July.

I saw you posted here and I thought there was going to be story time with Uncle Morgoth!

Somehow this does not sound like getting some fluffy bedtime stories...

How could you imply anything like that! I have children! None of whose paternity is questionable, I don't care what Jessica says!

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Wow, six years, time has flought.

What still amazes me is how this place has started from zero and survived hackings, problems with bandwith almost every book launching, money issues, some tensions too, but remained the best HP forums, content and form included.

As an ESL person, I find it hard to find any forums with such a good quality of English.

Yes, indeed, CoS is like a second home. Well, cyber home anyway.

Yep, that's what I think of it as well. It's one of the best forums that I've ever been a member of .

Loads of credit to the staff for being able to overcome all those problems.

Re: The Secret History of CoS Forums.

Then there are those of us who slipped through a magical time/space portal, spent years wandering around the place and still haven't found a way out.

Although I will say, after the first week at CoS who even tries to find the exit?

Or something like that.
Is there going to be a cool effect like when the planets align and everything in the world is in balance or portals to other worlds open up or the universe exploads or something cool like that?

Mathematically speaking, all the planets only align once every 62 trillion years. And if CoS forums is still here then we'll have either taken over the universe... OR be dang close to it...

62 trillion years huh? That is a looooong time...unless Morgoth getting his sixth star would causes them to align...

*prepares to take over universe*

Peryhaps we could start with the theme park and branch out from there. Seems a good place to start and we're already planning to make some nifty matching t-shirts with glitter paint.
