Re: Ask the Staff v8

Is there a way to minimize the site-closing notice that takes up the entire screen at the top of each page?

Yeah, I've changed it so that it should disappear after a bit.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

I've no idea where to post this question, but if there's any staff that can help I'd be most grateful.

I've just started a new, simple game but I obviously got it all wrong! If someone could please move it for me, that would be brilliant thank you!

Re: Ask the Staff v8

In looking back at my Welcome to Chamber of Secrets owl I saw this note under 'Creating a new thread': "For example, if you want to start a thread about something that happened in books 1-5 it would go in History of Magic." There's also a reference to posting in "Introductions (Part Five)". I know I'm asking the obvious, but were these parts changed with each corresponding update? For instance, does it now specify about posting from books 1-7 in The Stone? Just curious what the welcome letter would be like for newer members.

Also, is there any information on who decided (and why) to name the 3 sub-forums after the Deathly Hallows? Just a nostalgic question.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Sorry for not (yet) bothering with a search for that owl. I got caught in old staff discussions in search for a reply to the other question.

The forums named after the Hallows were originally created as 'spoiler forums' for DH discussions during the spoiler policy period when the old forums were still open as spoiler-free forums. Whether the names were made up by Morgoth alone or all admins together I don't know. At the end of the spoiler policy the admins and unspeakables agreed that the most practical way to proceed was to keep the new forums and move tho old ones to the archive.

So the answer, short version, would be: the staff and for practical reasons.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Hi I was wondering with Matt saying we will be here until 2014 will we be having an event calender like we have in other years ?

Maybe. Maybe not. As we all remember, we didn't get enough entries last year, so no promises at this stage.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Please may I ask a question? (well perhaps several) I was saddened to see the end of the forum, though I totally understood the reasons behind it.

How have things changed? Can we expect a statement of some kind to let us know what the developments have been? (oh dear, that sounds so intrusive, but you get my meaning)

I'm delighted that there seems to be some stay of execution - but I, for one, would dearly love to know what happens next.

All anyone can offer you is Morgoth's statement in the closure thread:

There is no news to offer at this stage on any new management of the site. I'm still 'in charge' until otherwise stated. There's no further need for notices or comments as I've got nothing whatsoever to add. Carry on posting and we'll update you all with news when it comes.
I've bolded the most pertinent bits.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Are we no longer allowed to create social groups? I couldn't see where to click to create a new Hufflepuff common room. We used to chat in there a lot, and I was so sad to see it was deleted.

You can still do that. Just made a new one to test it out. It's called 'Science Fiction Unlimited'. If anyone wants to check it out .

If you want to make a new group, just click on the 'Create a new group' button.

Re: Ask the Staff v8

Oh wow, the social groups have been slashed back
Yeah, why were the common rooms deleted? (Or was it just the Hufflepuff one?)

Somehow the Doris Crockford Appreciation Group managed to stay - I guess there's something special about that witch

Supposedly it was the groups that haven't been posted in for around a year.

I don't know how they came to that conclusion, there was a number of new posts in there [Huff CR] last time I looked (although the frequency of posts were low).

I may be wrong, but I think they deleted all the Common Rooms, plus the Sorting Hat.
