Welcome to Potter’s Army

Welcome to Potter's Army

We have been a Harry Potter Roleplaying site since 2007. If you're an old member we hope you come check out the discord link provided below. And if you're looking for a new roleplaying site, well, we're a little inactive. But every once and a while nostalgia sets in and a few of our alumni members will revisit the old stomping grounds and post together. Remember to stay safe out there. And please feel free to drop a line whenever!

What’s Happening?
Since every few months or so a few of our old members get the inspiration to revisit their old stomping grounds we have decided to keep PA open as a place to revisit old threads and start new ones devoid of any serious overarching plot or setting. Take this time to start any of those really weird threads you never got to make with old friends and make them now! Just remember to come say hello in the chatbox below or in the discord. Links have been provided in the "Comings and Goings" forum as well as the welcome widget above.

Actually, I was thinking more of something that sorts the entire site by when they were at Hogwarts, so if my adult character was at Hogwarts from 1994 - 2001, they'll be able to see who else they would know from school.

Oh, and you probably want to fix up the welcome PM. It still has Jemma as an admin.


And I've been noticing lately many of the forum descriptions and information topics need to be spell checked. Not just for obvious spelling mistakes, either, but for homonyms and things as well.

We understand that some of the permanent/semi permanent posts still show old admins/members on them. But we leave them because the information in the posts contain foundational information that, frankly, does not make a lot of sense to rewrite just because membership has changed--unless that foundation information changes. And when that does happen, we do rewrite those topics.

We also do try to change/edit grammar and spelling mistakes when we find them, but in all honesty, we're volunteers here and we're here for the same reason everyone else is. We want to have a good time just like everyone else and to do our best to try to make sure everyone here has as good a time as possible. We know that those things are little irritants, but we do have a lot of things we try to keep up on, and that does not always include spellchecking each topic or post. We're much more interested in the quality of the information we present and in making sure that we've done our best to insure the quality of the experience each member has when he or she is onsite.

We will try to continue to make sure the obvious mistakes are caught and corrected, as we always have done.

1. The welcome message has a set of links to the moderators in it. Jemma's account is one of those links. For really new members, who aren't just making an alternate account, that's misleading.

2. I don't expect anyone to go through and spell check everyone's posts. That's just ludicrous. I do think the forum descriptions and the must read topics and even the information posts for things like the claim topics should be correctly spelt.

You may be more interested in quality, but how good can the quality be if nobody can read it? Part of quality communication is effective communication. Part of effective communication is saying what you mean. Like, not writing about compensation when you really mean that you're trying to make certain of something.

1.This is a minor problem that can easily be fixed.

2.The content of the post/description of forum will always surpass the grammar or spelling errors. Everyone has misspelled something or had difficulty explaining something.
