A Sherlock Holmes Mystery…

Think it’s to do with your Birthday!  Happy Birthday btw 😀

Website – Changed by Jo Rowling

The following site  http://changedbyjorowling.inhonorofrowling.com/  has been doing an amazing project : collecting stories from the Harry Potter fans about how reading the books had an impact on their childhood or in their life in general. Hopefully Jo will have a read through them 😀

Pottermore back online!

Pottermore is back online Lions, Snakes, Badgers and Eagles! =)  Just started a potion to see if there are no glitches and ‘chatting’ with my badgers (well try to as no forum or reply button still). They changed mostly hardware so we won’t see any result apart from chapters working smoothly again. I hope next update will be content related though: we want to Duel!!  http://insider.pottermore.com/p/pottermore-site-updates.html

Pottermore down – 3 day Break

Pottermore has closed its website for at least 3 days, hoping to re-open at the weekend. Bad news though, it’s just a technical update pffft so ok the site might run smoother but still no Wizard’s Duelling in sight! 😦  http://insider.pottermore.com/p/pottermore-site-updates.html

Last day of Pottermore – Break tomorrow

A quick reminder to all that today is the last full day of potion making fun, exploring or trying to chat with people in the common rooms as Pottermore will be on a break starting tomorrow 2 november. Let’s hope the technical enhancements will be worth it (maybe Duelling will be back up as the #pottermorefamily suggests)  http://insider.pottermore.com/2011/10/making-pottermore-even-better.html 

No Halloween opening – Beta continues

Pottermore let everyone know yesterday that the Beta period is extended for a good while longer. This means of course that the site won’t be opening for all at end of this month (read Halloween) after all ~_~ http://insider.pottermore.com/2011/10/making-pottermore-even-better.html To be fair this comes as no big surprise at all… They only opened the survey last week, where we betas could finally vent our frustrations about the numerous bugs and have our say how the site could be improved. So naturally if they are smart ,they’ll take notice of some of the suggestions we made before they let everyone in.

They do mention that they’re working on new exciting improvements…well let’s start by making Wizard’s Duelling available again shall we? *sighs* Other than that I hope for:

* Music – Website soundtrack and sound effects during games
Forum / Chat – Being able to reply to comments in common room directly! Send owls with messages to friends.
* Potions – Shorten brewing time by 40%  . Actually make copper cauldron brew faster than pewter. A second potion book would be great too.
* Interactivity – More interactive scenes during the moments , use the objects we collected to do stuff with them.
* House Points – More ways to earn points than just spells and potions: more mini-games to play!

On a final note, I’m really happy to have played the magical quill challenge as I fear they won’t open the site for all til early 2012…
