Greetings & Salutations,


After a lengthy discussion today amongst the Governors, we have come a to decision about a very unfortunate issue that has often been faced on our site. From this day forward, the following rules will apply to all of HO and its associated platforms:

  • Catfishing members of Hogwarts Online is an act that is contrary to our values as a community. Catfishing is the act of luring someone into an emotional connection by means of a fictional online persona. This includes lying about your appearance, status, orientation, gender identity, etc with the intent of misleading another person for the purpose of forming a relationship.
  • Impersonating someone's real life persona on Hogwarts Online is an act that is contrary to our values as a community. Impersonation by this definition means using the name, photos, or other identifying information of a real person to assume a false identity when communicating with members of our site.
  • It is also contrary to our values as a community to feign serious illness, critical injury or death of a real life persona, real or imagined.
  • Aiding in any of the aforementioned acts is contrary to the our values as a community.

We are, first and foremost, a community of friends. Friendship requires trust. Trust requires honesty. Hogwarts Online does not require any person to disclose their personal details and anyone who wishes to keep their identity safe is welcome to assume an OOC pen name. However, the acts describes above will no longer be tolerated on this site. Far too much hurt and betrayal has come from thoughtless violations of trust.


From this moment forward, any member found to be in violation of these values will be asked to leave our community. If you have any questions about this, please contact me directly.
