Welcome! I'm not totally clear what you're asking exactly, but if you are wondering how to make changes to a post you already made, click the 'Edit' button at the bottom of the post, and then you can continue or change whatever you want.

If you've posted it in a thread here you can just add another post ~ just like adding another chapter.

If you want to give the writers some feedback, you may want to look at

the Flourish and Blotts Book Club in Diagon Alley or the Flourish & Blotts - New Premises Feedback Area in the Deathly Hallows area.

Most writers link their feedback thread in their fiction posts.

Re: Questions from New Members

I have another question. In order to get into Hogsmeade it says you need to have at least 300 posts in the folling areas.... Does that mean 300 in each area or 300 in all?

300 in all. I think 300 in each would be darn near impossible!!

I am not sure, but if you know that your friend had his Instant Messaging contacts on his profile you should be able to see those icons via posts (providing that they aren't deleted of course) that this person has made. It might be possible that when you click on the IM icon you will be able to get in contact. But I am not sure of this, since I have no experience with it myself. But it might be worth a try.

Re: Questions from New Members

CoS has no sorting feature, all signature houses you see are made up or from external sorting sites like this one.

Re: Questions from New Members

Do you mean this one? (Just asking, because it changes in different forum layouts).

It shows whether a member is online. If it is red and flashing one is logged in, if it is yellow a member is offline.
The image is stolen from DH UK Cover (children edtion).

Re: Questions from New Members

Good fellows! A question about fanfic: Are you allowed to write crossover, metaphor-like fanfiction, like rewrite the LotR story into the Potter world, write 'Draco Malfoy meets Arthur Dent', or maybe write some story about the weasley family going to Hyrule?
Also, how does the feedback thing work? Thank you so much for answering!

Re: Questions from New Members

Two questions

1) It's only Harry Potter fanfic allowed.

2) There is an area where you can open a thread to allow for members to post back a feedback

Any more questions feel free to contact one of the members in blue or post here.

Re: Questions from New Members

Ok thanks But does the things i counted up count as "Harry Potter-related" or could you still use certain elements from other stories, as long as it's all Harry Potter's world with Harry Potter's characters?
