Example of a correct Post

Harry Potter, 6th year Gryffindor

Harry was too busy polishing his broom to notice the two figures that had entered the common room. *We are so going to win tomorrow's game* he thought to himself. Harry looked up when he saw Ron enter the common room behind the two previous first years. (OOC: Now he pays attention, LOL!) He laughs at Ron's unruly hair; it reminds him of his own.

"Hey, Ron!" Harry shouted across the room to his best friend, "You ready for tomorrows game?"
