    Ronald Weasley
    I had a question about the usernme 'Ron Weasley'. Okay, so I've been apart of these boards since the beginning, and I had 'Ron Weasley' as my username. When you guys redid the forums, I was aware people had to rejoin, which I did as 'Ron Weasley'. I'm wondering if you guys deleted my account because I wasn't on often and made it an unusable username or if someone else owns it? Because 'Ron Weasley' is my pen name on MNFF and I would like it the same as here. I think it's unfair for my name to be taken from me when I still come here.

    Hope you can help! Thanks.

    I was wondering exactly, where the line is that would determine if a fic should be R/Hr (or H/G for that matter) or H/G AND R/Hr.

    For example, if you're writing a story where the main focus is on R/Hr, but there's a quick scene where they visit Harry and Ginny (who are in a romantic relationship) would that be R/Hr or H/G AND R/Hr?

    I hope that made sense, and thanks to whoever answers!

    Ronald Weasley - A lot of the Harry Potter canon character names on the forums are taken on purpose. A year or so ago, some people had created forum names such as "Harry Potter" and "Remus Lupin" and used it to roleplay. To keep this from happening again, the moderators all created one or two canon character usernames so no one can create them themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    MrsRubeusHagridDursley - R/Hr AND H/G would be a story focusing on both couples. If your story is mainly R/Hr and only slightly mentions H/G it would fit in better in R/Hr. If a story focuses primarily on how both couples came together, it would be R/Hr AND H/G.

    this is kind of a silly question but anyway, let me explain everything before i ask. ok, so ever since i first join, over a year ago, i've been saying happy birthday to eveyone as much as possible. i've named myself as the unoffical birthday committee. is it possible for me to become the offical birthday committee? well, that's my question.

    Time Difference

    I know MNFF's going to close when DH comes out- but because Australia's something like 20 hours ahead of you (that is, if you're American), does this mean that my fellow Aussies will have a chance to jump on and post spoilers before you close it? (Not that I'd do anything of the sort!) Or are you closing it from the time DH is first released anywhere?

    Do forgive me if my information is totally out of whack, or if there's some vital fact that I don't know about! Just slightly concerned about the spoilers.

    lionsnake7 - If you have an idea for anything, you need to develop a thought-out plan for it and PM it to one of the admin (songbook99, Potterphile12, or PhysicalGraffiti)

    Ronald Weasley - songbook99 is currently on vacation. Please be patient and wait for her return.

    Rowanhood_in_China - The main MNFF page uses HTML so to put a banner in your author's page, you'd have to put in the following:

    <img src="Link to banner">
    Phia Phoenix - Firstly, please put whatever question you may have in this thread and not in a new thread. We're closing the queue most likely at 12:00 midnight EST, so there will be a time difference. I don't think the twenty-hour time difference will be an issue though; assuming we will still moderate a significant amount during that difference, we most likely won't even reach the stories that have been submitted in that time frame. I think most of us mods won't even touch the queue when it's closed until we each have read DH, so we will be able to recognize the spoilers when we do reach those stories.

    I had put this question in the last Ask the Moderators, but it wasn't fully answered. I've been trying to put a custom avatar as my avatar, but whenever I put in the URL it either says invalid vile or the following:

    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 4098850 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 77824 bytes) in /home/fanfiction/public_html/forum/includes/class_dm_user.php on line 479

    I was sure to check the size of the avatar, which was 100 x 100 pixels and 4230 bytes (4.131 kilobytes). What am I doing wrong?
