Re: Questions from New Members

Hi, I'm new here and have skimmed through the Notice Board and FAQ. I haven't posted in the Introductions thread yet, though. I have a question first.

A few years ago, this forum was different. It wasn't called the Chamber of Secrets (I don't think so, at least). When you registered on those ones, you would get sorted into a house by a short quiz that also determined the character you are most similar to... My question is, why is that sorting thing not there anymore? I thought that was really fun and brilliant. I mean, I realize how it could cause hostilities between houses or something of that nature, but it's part of the magic of Hogwarts. Getting sorted makes it more fun. Why isn't there a quiz anymore? Just wondering, an answer would be most appreciated.

Thank you very much... you and Jedigirl.

That must have been before my time, I've never heard about sorting on CoS.
But I do know that there isn't any sorting at the moment, because it has the potential of rivalry and fights between the houses, like you said above. Members are allowed though to proclaim their houses in their signatures (currently disabled for the Deathly Hallows release)

Yep, there's no sorting on CoS and won't be.

Re: Questions from New Members

Signatures are images and text lines which appear below every post you make. Currently they are turned off due to Spoiler prevention, so you can't see them. They will be back soon.

Re: Questions from New Members

I'm not a new member exaclt, but I've been away from the boards for months and months. What ever happened to the old Flourish & Blotts, particularly the COS Writing Cotests? I can't find it anywhere.

The date for reopening these areas is not set in stone. It depends on the level of interest the Deathly Hallows creates and the eagerness of fans wanting to discuss the end of the series. We expect it to be huge. The staff will review a reopening time for these areas towards the end of July and make an announcement at the start of August.

Re: Questions from New Members

I have a really stupid question ... what do the little stars under your number of posts mean?

Nevermind - just figured it out - sorry!

The DoIMC is closed for now. The staff have not told us exactly when it will be reopening, but probably some time in August.
