So you want to register for the Gryffindor Common Room? This is the post for you! Please read these rules and follow them in order to ensure that your account will be approved! (Yes, we check all accounts.)
Gryffindor Common Room Registration
Please follow the steps below, and pay attention, because we actually give you help with the information.
Click the register button up at the top right hand side of the forum. It will direct you to a new page.
You will be taking to a page that has the following, but has more wordiness:
Join Our Community
Here is how you fill out the above information.
Your username must match your HOL name. You must use a space between the first and last name, and you must use proper capitalisation. If you don't do all of the above, your registration will happily be deleted. So, here's an example based on my old HOL information as a student.
missa09 ---> WRONG
missa_matz ---> WRONG
mi092 ---> WRONG
missaMatz ---> WRONG
Missa Matz ---> RIGHT
Again, if you don't get it right, you will get deleted. If we have to delete your registration more than 5 times, we will ban your IP address from the board because you obviously can't read and won't be able to understand the topics on the board anyways.
In the email address field, please make sure to enter the email address that matches the email address in your HOL profile. We check these before we validate your registration, and if they don't match EXACTLY, we delete you. If you have changed your email address and it is different than your HOL profile email address, then you must go and change that one FIRST, then sign up for this forum. Again, if it doesn't match we will delete your registration.
You can choose any password you want, but it would be best if it is one that you can remember, because we sure won't know it. If you forget your password at any time there is a 'forgot password' link located on the sign in page. Click that link and hope you haven't changed your email address without changing it on the forum.
Please put in your HOL ID when you register. If you don't know what that is, go find it over at HOL. Again if you don't, the registration will not go through.
We had issues with spam bots earlier this year, so this is a new sign-up requirement. Just answer the question (in English, please) to sign up.
Ah, the lovely "verify you are a human" section. Insert what you see as the code, it is case sensitive. If you have poor vision, there is an audio challenge instead.
Once you fill in all the info, click the register button and you will be added to the validation queue.
Prof. Dario Sehovic and Prof. Jenny Lupin like to play around and add shiny new things to the board on occasion, so it may go offline from time to time. Just be patient as it shouldn't stay that way for more than a day at a time.
Also, it MAY take between 1 and 5 days days for your registration to be approved. Dario and Missa try to be quick about it, but we do have lots of things to do, both in Gryffindor and in RL. If you are unsure how to tell if you are approved or not, please visit the appropriate Approved/Unapproved topic in the Q&A section. If you have any further questions, PM or HOL message a Gryffindor Prefect.
