Welcome to HPLF Reunion 2014! Please sign in.

Welcome to the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum Reunion! We are pleased to have each one of you here and we hope you will enjoy the event.

Please sign in here, even if you are a current member or if you don't post any other messages, so we can get an accurate head count of Reunion attendees. Thank you. 

We urge you to take a little walk down memory lane by strolling through the "History of the Harry Potter Lexicon Forum" folder. Feel free to join in the fun in our polls and games folders just like we used to do while discussing the books. We've all wondered where formerly active members are now and what's happened in their lives since they left the forum (or went into lurking mode). So please update us on the changes in your life on the Updates Please thread. Then go on over to the Reunion chat thread and have a ball. We even have a chat (room) box at the bottom of the main page if you want to chat in real time.

I've unlocked this thread, so people can start signing in as they arrive. We want to make everyone welcome and to get a good idea of how many people attend the reunion; so everyone please let us know when you arrive.

Welcome to the HPLF Reunion 2014! Make yourself comfortable and have some fun!  

I'm here! Well I'm gonna go take a nap because I work overnight tonight; but I'll be popping in periodically when I can.

Not sure if this is correct since this is my first post. Thanks to Elanor for making me aware of the reunion. I will be catching up on the alchemy posts.

Well I'm here, but then I've been here all along!   

It's Saturday morning for me already, so it's Friday night for most of you, but it still seems pretty quiet around here.

Hi, Everyone! It's nice to see you, Hollywand. You're correct, Verity, it is quiet. I popped in a bit earlier and didn't see anyone around. I checked at the bottom of the page to see how many folks were online, and I just saw my name and an unregistered guest. *sigh*

I'm here! Waving to everybody!

Lots of work to be done for me this weekend but I'll try to pop in whenever I can!

Hi Soli and Elanor! Don't worry too much; it's more important that people read and post when they can than that they're here at the same time. The forum has always functioned just fine with people coming and going at their convenience. Although it would be nice to be here when others are.

Hi everyone! I still consider myself a regular member who's been here all the time, although I have been playing truant lately.

I am here too. I am on here reading often but try not to let online life affect my real life so limit time on line which means I read a lot but don't post often.

First time I've checked out this newer version of the Forum. It's good to see that people are still staying connected through the HP fandom here. It's nice seeing familiar names.

I loved reading the books! I have a lot of kids and all but one of us has read the books several times. And of course, we watch the movies a lot as well.

A few years ago I switched jobs and am now working with a number of HP fans. We've enjoyed talking about the books and films at work and when we travel together.

I haven't really got into another book series as much, although Game of Thrones is Big in our family. The BBC Sherlock series has got me re-reading the original ACD stories, so that's been a big interest for the past couple of years.

Other than that, my kids are growing up and I now only have two at home. I love working, hiking, music, reading, and playing games. See the avatar? It's on one of my favorite mountain hikes, and I get to go again this summer.

Now I'll have a look around and see what people are writing about.

It's so good to see some of our lurkers participating! And it's great to see former members here! Welcome to all of you!

Saralinda; I'm glad you made it! Please go to the Updates Please thread and tell us about you. I've so missed your wit and humor over the years you were away, and I'd love to know what's going on in your life.

I hope everyone is checking out our (newly set up) History of the Forum folder. We've put together a handy timeline showing the order of significant events concerning the forum. And in the Quintessential HPLF folder, you'll find a small collection of threads that talk about how the forum started, showcase the qualities and of our forum friends and demonstrate how much the forum has touched our live.

If you have a little time, it might also be fun to stroll through some of the archived threads from the original forum. You might find discussions that bring back pleasant memories for you.

Enjoy!

It's good to see a few people checking in here for the reunion, but it would be great to see a few more votes on the polls or guesses on the games threads - from our regular members too!

Coming a bit late to the party, I'm afraid, but here I am ...

It's been, what? something like 5 years since I last posted here, but Elanor was kind enough to remember me and advertise this reunion, which I couldn't ignore :-)

Edit: Oh, and my user name is my real name

Well, now it's past midnight Sunday night. The "official" time for the Reunion is over, and if it were physically being held somewhere, courtesy would dictate that we all leave. I'm so happy that it caused some people to visit who would not normally have been here. It was so good to see familiar, missed "faces". Thank you all for coming!

However, since we're not utilizing a physical place, you are all welcome to stay! We will probably be locking the Reunion threads to further discussion, but we still have active discussions on the main forum. There are games in progress right now (and they could use more participants   ); the "Still Unanswered Questions" thread is still used whenever someone thinks of a question about the books; the read-along threads are still being used for discussions about specific books (even if there is no read along going on); and of course the Chat thread is the most active thread here.

I hope everyone had a good time!

Some people may still pop in today (Monday). Nick for one has told me he would (he couldn't make it during the weekend). Maybe we could keep the "reunion threads" open for a few more days, in case others might be in the same case? Just an idea!
