its easy to tell that the admins favorite members wrote the glowing reviews. these admins are so stuck up and full of themselves that its not even funny. they advertise as being an easy site to get involved with but unless youre one of their favorites they wont post with you. even if you take one of their want ads they treat you like nobody. beware joining this site unless you have a lot of time to devote to sticking your head up the admins asses otherwise you wont get the plots you want.
I believe everything about this site states that it is an advanced site for advanced writers. The Admin are extremely careful about vetting members for the site. The downside to this is that some members end up rejected and unhappy about it. I think the site ends up being better for this process, though it can be a challenge for people who expect Admin to bend to their own ideas and head canons. Every member I’ve encountered has had answers to questions that are consistent to the staff, so I think it’s safe to say that those of us who’ve stuck with it are very insistent on continuing the staff’s viewpoints. The staff also asks us questions before making changing (even when redoing rules in the middle of a Quidditch game), so we’re all part of something dynamic and growing.
Static Hogwarts is a stable site. There is no drama among the staff and you can tell by the site lore that a lot of time, effort, and heart has gone into this site. It isn’t going to be active one day and shut down 2 weeks later. This site seems to be in it for the long-haul. The staff is on every day and engage with everyone on the site. The members I’ve encountered have been wonderful, creative, and inclusive. There is no shortage of want ads, ideas, and silly jokes. There are members who’ve been around for a few years and others for a few weeks, but I think everyone is treated the same. I have never felt personally attacked or shut down, even with the clear (and sometimes highly structured) expectations. If you’re concerned about fitting in, simply ask members or the staff how you can best fit in. They’ll all tell you – want ads, engaging, and throwing your characters into threads!
Easily the worst site I have ever been on. The admins are incredibly rude and condescending, they don't like you unless you kissup, and they are all in one big clique. They are some of the nastiest people I have ever met in my life, and I am so glad that I left this site when I did.
Static Hogwarts is an amazing community and roleplaying experience for writers of all experience levels. The admins are very responsive and show an impressive level of social and technical understanding and maturity, and are never leaving new members to figure things out for themselves. There is a notable lack of "cliquey" roleplaying, as I've noticed, and the admins are a driving force in this sort of inclusive environment as they are the first to try and plot with newcomers. Systematically, the site works well to encourage creativity and provides oppourtunities for members to give imput on events and site ideas, and there is always a new event going on. There is a nice element of surprise with devices such as Risk! factor and other NPC-type activities by the admins. So five thumbs up! - Satyr(Member)
Static Hogwarts is easily the best roleplay site I've ever been on, and is by and far the best Harry Potter one I've been on. While it may take newbies a couple hours to get through all the rules and the process for creating your first character, it is completely worth it. The forum itself is beautiful in looks, it's so well-organized that I literally thought there must be at least ten Admins or Mods, and everyone is so welcoming that it feels like I've been in this group for months already. The character creation process seems difficult at first, but not only is much simpler once you read through it, the Admins and members are so helpful with any questions. I felt like I was bothering them at first, but they were so genuinely excited that I joined and that I was asking questions that it made me feel so much more at ease. The plot is so well-rounded, and I love that they don't focus solely on romantic plots, and that they have a post-Hogwarts section so that I don't lose my characters once they graduate. The divvying up of Abilities and Rare Traits is so well done with the Knut system, I'm surprised that other sites haven't stolen it. This is honestly the best RP out there, and is most definitely the best Potter RP there is. Korine and Mandy (the admins) have put so much love and time into this site, and it shows in every facet of the process and every nook and cranny of the site. I'm astounded that this place even exists.
