Umm I just started here so if some one could explain what it is about and what is up with the karma and stuff than that would be lovely. ???

Alright, fresh bloo...I mean, a new student.

Welcome.  I can explain to you that once you hit your second year, you can score (or lose) points for your house.

Have you been sorted, and if so, into which house?
I have found that the pursuit of knowledge and the pursuit of friends often find their paths splitting and running in completely opposite directions.

For an explanation about Karma, check out the FAQ and scroll all the way down. Or hit 'End'. ;)
The statement below is true.

Is this where we're supposed to post this??

Welcome! I think OyamNey has explain the house points --;.The karma is just for fun if someone does somthing nice you can charm them and if you don't like someone you can jinx them. I don't know what else you want to know but you can PM me if you have any questions :)

YamNeo has indeed explained the points; with one exception -- it is not impossible to gain or lose points for your house as a first year.  The prefects and professors may cut you some slack in the point-taking side of things, but if you do something egregious, expect to be made an example of.   

Having said that, let me introduce myself.  I'm Cho Chung, one of the Gryffindor prefects around here.  (Don't worry.  I'm not always as cheerful as I was above.)  Welcome to the board!  Always fun to have fresh meat, er, I mean, a new face around here.  Have you been sorted yet? 
Birthdays are great.  Everyone should have them.

*tackles Cho*

Yeah, that should pretty much do it. The Help page above can also be a good jumping off place if you'd like to know the details of how to post. I also suggest reading the FAQ thoroughly to know the rules and guidelines around here.

*whispers* Or else Cho'll come after you... O_O

The head honcho around here would be Ping, and depending on where you're sorted you'll have your own house prefect to direct questions to.

So, I think that's about it to get you started. Oh, and I was just joking about Cho. She's awesome. ^__^
The quantity of consonants in the English language is constant. If omitted in one place, they turn up in another. When a Bostonian "pahks" his "cah," the lost r's migrate southwest, causing a Texan to "warsh" his car and invest in "erl wells."

One other thing...don't make fun of my nickname.  It's easier to remember than my full name...

Morrin, if you're going to use that Muggle language...Pig-whatever...it'd be amNeoYay...and don't you make fun of my nickname either.

I don't care (OOC: or do I?) *stares*

Hope you have a good time, Kendra!
