I know that. That would be why I mentioned it in my question. I meant, what exactly is it? A treasure of some sort? I don't remember anything like it being described in the books.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

I think it's just a graphic in keeping with the layout it appears in. The trio are at the top surrounded by Gringotts gold, so the rest of the layout will have graphics relating to Gringotts.

I asked that very question at the start of this thread

It's Voldemort's face on the cover of one of the books. Seriously.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Er, well, in the UK DH layout (which I think is the default) it is a green jewel, as the poster mentioned. However, in the US DH layout (which I use) it's Voldemort's face. However, in the House layouts, it's the House crests, in the Xmas layout, it's a wreath, etc. The graphic changes depending on the layout.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

It looks like a face to me, personally, although it is near jewels:

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Hang on a bit, now I'm confused. Are we talking about this or this ?

The former is Voldemort's face from the US DH cover. The latter is the green jewel below Harry's right hand in the UK DH cover.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

This isn't really an important question, but I've been wondering why the site keeps crashing every so often.

I've noticed this also. Unfortunately I don't know what the reason for it is - could be due to the increased traffic maybe.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

How come the official 'Ask ___' threads (such as Ask Harry) are all closed?

They are closed because staffmembers are the ones that play the characters and we have very limited time to play next to our other duties

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Staff members are chosen from the Hogsmeade members of the site.

For more information please check out: Comments on: Auror Elections.

Ahh, I see. Do you plan on ever re-opening them, or considering allowing trusted members to manage the accounts (such as Hogsmeade members)?

Re: Ask the Staff v8

I'm sorry, but only staff members are allowed to manage these accounts. As for making them more active, I can't promise anything. But when we do find the time for it, I'm sure they will be back

Number of years on CoS.

Yellow = less than 1000 days
Pink = 1000-1999 days

Re: Ask the Staff v8

How come there's a new thread after every 5,000 posts? Just wondering, it's not really a major question.

Most threads are closed and new versions started when the thread reaches 1,500 posts. We'll let chat threads and some of the other threads go to 5,000 before we start new versions. It is just the way we manage them. I'm not sure if there is a major reason.
