I didn't know you had to answer questions to register as I am a long-term member. If I had to do that I probably wouldn't have bothered to join!!

I am not very active on the site since the chat was discontinued.

Anyway welcome, I'm sure you will have a positive experience from using the site.

Holy cow this thread is so funny. I registered in August (I believe)...the "question" was still there and I struggled with the same thing for a long while - and I know the books inside and out. I treated it like it was asking for a definition, and put School of Witchcraft and Wizardry...

I will happily return a critique, and feel free to send me a note if you would like me to critique your work.

Your thread helped me as well. I tried "Where does Harry live?" and "Where is Harry Potter?" My problem with it is that it's a word, a statement at best, not a question. I thought I was on some twisted form of Jeopardy and had to answer in the form of a question, lol. Thanks for posting this and thanks to the admins for leaving it up for so long!

Wasn't a question, only a word.  And assumes everyone is familiar with Harry Potter.  Took me a bit to figure it out.
