Here is the place to post how you found out about this great forum. Newbies, we are looking at you in particular!

(Although regular members are more than welcome to post how they found out also.)

How did you get here? Did a friend tell you? Did somebody in another forum link to BaO? Did you see a banner? If you care share, that would be awesome.

As for me, if I recall correctly, I was searching around for Harry Potter theories, when I stumbled upon this place. I was using Google.

Shortly after the fifth book came out I was looking for a forum and the first few I found were blocking new memberships due to the sudden influx. I found this one, everyone was really friendly and the rest, as they say, is history!

My old forum had grouchy members that only posted once or twice a month, and only because you were required to, or you would be kicked out, so instead of sitting at the computer, reading my name as the "last to post" for the entire 10 topics that were there, i decided to ask around. i got referred to mischeif managed, but it didnt suit me, so i googled it, and came up with this! :)

Well, in my case; I had just been banned from harrypotterforums.co.uk for swearing and assorted bad language. I decided to find a better place to be, so I started google searching harry potter forums, and after a little trial and error, I found this place

I seem to remember I found it through google after somebody invited me to a huge LotR forum and I decided to look see if there was an equivalent for Harry Potter.
