I saw this website linked in a thread in Dumbledore's Office and felt the need to leave a review after seeing some of the stuff written here. I've been on the site for probably 5 years now. If a site wasn't fun, I wouldn't even have stuck around this long. I've jumped around a lot of RP forums prior. I like the site and all is has to offer. I suck at contests but they're still fun to enter and I dread homework. The economy is a little wonky, but kinda cool. Mods put a lot of work into stuff around the site so I give them mad credit for that. I've made a lot of friends over the years and I'm thankful for them as I'm not really good at making friends. I've had my ups and downs with this site, and experienced a few times where I felt like leaving. I will admit that I've felt this recently. There's a group of users, who are probably behind all the recent 1 stars, who have made myself and other members of the LGBTQ+ community feel unsafe on this website as they've been bullying members of the community and it's gross. Bullying is something you may encounter, but staff take bullying seriously if you report it. I recognize staff have been doing their best to make members of the LGBTQ+ community feel safe again and they accept us for who we are and our views. So I would say to take the recent crappy reviews with a grain of salt. Staff have been taking steps to try and make the site a better place and I'm happy about that. I love the diversity committee and new LGBTQ+ publication. I can't wait for all the drama to go away. The site is a Harry Potter site and it's really good for that. The recent drama is ruining it, but the users that you can befriend make it worth staying. That's why I'm still on the site.
