Pottermore!
« on: June 23, 2011, 02:51:43 PM »
I am super excited about pottermore.com !
I know the forum has a lot of HP fans, so I thought I would start a thread to discuss it and amuse our waiting together.
For anyone who hasn't checked it out yet, it's on www.pottermore.com
Check out the screenshots in the press kit... I am DROOLING!
I hope I get selected to be on the "early users"... October seems soooooo far away  :P

Looks pretty but being on dialup, I doubt I will be able to make much use of it.  Hope y'all enjoy it though.

I do hope that the encyclopedia (should it ever get written) will be available in hardcopy.

I have been trying to put in my email address since the very first moment it went live... no luck!
I guess so many people expected it that it crushed! Imagine what is going to happen in October  ::)

A click on one of the ads every so often would help a lot if possible. Thank you <3 .

Can I just say that I really wish I was a witch instead of a muggle? Even if it meant I was stuck in skirts and dresses all the time.

My reasoning for why I never got my letter: When Voldie came to power in '96-'97 he wiped all of the muggleborns off of all the school lists world wide. And our powers were bound.

I think this is way cool.  And I totally LOVED the animated paper art in Jo's Youtube announcement video.
"I don't mean to be rude", he began, in a tone that threatened rudeness in every syllable.

"--yet sadly, accidental rudeness occurs alarmingly often," Dumbledore finished the sentence gravely.  "Best to say nothing at all."

I left my email address, however it wouldn't let me do so in either Chrome (on my pc) or Safari (on my mac). I had to open IE for it to work. Does anyone know if it works ok in Flamingvixen?

Yayyyy! I left my e-mail at last!

I noticed that the press images are no longer linked through the main page. For anyone who hasn't seen them yet, you can find them here:

and the press release
http://assets.pottermore.com/emcp/downloads/pottermore_pressrelease_230611.pdf

From the images I gather that we will be shorted into houses... (NOW I understand Harry in "Not Slytherin... not slytherin...)!  ;)

I'm one of those people who gets chills when they hear an amazing song, see an amazing movie and most definitely read an amazing book.

After seeing this, well, I'm off to go put on a sweater. I am SO excited!

Akka, thank you for posting the direct links. That was very kind of you.  :)


P.S May just read the entire series over again while I'm at it!

Vesper, I am glad you like it :)

May I suggest the audio books if you haven't already listened to them?
I take turns reading the book and listening to the audio book and I feel that the experience is sooo much different!
