I think, for some reason, they are actually manually approving accounts... There should be no reason for emails to take so long unless people are manually reviewing your information and approving... Which may be possible...

I had probs there too. I did a youtube search for "pottermore potions practise" and found more than enough help.

I am "MidnightPatronus14779"
I finished the first book and was rather disappointed in Pottermore. I was looking forward to more original content from J.K.

Yes, I saw it was moved before and now again. I guess we really don't have a exact place for it and are trying to put it where it has the best opportunity for discussion. Hopefully I have it right this time.

I have now been sorted and I am in Slytherin
I got through the potions bit
finding how to wave my wand took some time but if anyone is stuck on that bit its in front of the spell book and you can click and wave it
I am now stuck on casting spell
If anyone can help with that I'd be grateful
I am StarBat21264

I'll have to check that out Sean, thanks!!!! And I do have to agree... I thought there would be a lot more content than there is... Only the first book is available... I do like how you have to interact with the scene to unlock JK's messages though...

The site has potential... I cannot judge based on what we have to visit though... Knowing JK being the perfectionist she is, Pottermore will grow and be just fine... Also, I wouldn't expect a whole load of new content... She is, after all, putting together the Official Harry Potter encyclopedia... She won't give everything for free... You'll have to buy the book for the big information...

BTW, I sent you a friend request...

I think tech is actually fine even though this isn't Disney related... But yet, in a way, it is.. the Potter movies are shown on ABC Family which is owned by Disney... kind of 6 degrees of separation going on here...

I'm glad I'm not the only one excited about pottermore. I haven't had much time to go on and most is being done from my iphone so it's a little hard to do some of the stuff, like i couldn't get my key for my gringott's vault i had to go on the computer. Oh well I'll just have to spend more time on the computer i guess. I haven't been sorted yet i just got my wand, which is 11 inches ebony with a phoenix feather core. I'm HollyVine20241.

Well... I'm a Hufflepuff. How did that happen? Oh well, better a Hufflepuff than a muggle. Right?
I'm enjoying the (big) tidbits. The short, one-liners annoy me. I really don't need to know that so-and-so is someone Harry meets in Diagon Alley. Pretty sure I read that in a book somewhere. The background, I didn't know that, stuff is what I'm looking for. Just wish there was more of it.

I'm a Hufflepuff too! I've been on the site since mid August. I've kind of explored everything and I was hoping that they would put more stuff up. My name is WildDream89. See you in the common room.

Not doing so well in the wizard duels... still need to figure out how to do those things LOL... Well, tonight is TV night so maybe tomorrow night I'll finish up the first book to see what else is lurking there... Then I guess it is practicing potions and duels until Book 2 opens... unless there are other things I'm just not seeing right now... Need to explore more...

Default Pottermore CEO Discusses Site Content and Future Releases

Here is a bit posted o Mugglenet from Pottermore CEO Charlie Redmayne... He talks about the site and what is in store for the future... I read a few threads and people all say the same thing: there isn't much to do on the site... Well, he doesn't get into specifics, but he addresses it:

Quote:
On April 15th, the CEO of the interactive Harry Potter website, Pottermore, spoke at the London Book Fair's Digital Minds Conference. During this conference, he spoke about Pottermore's statistics, features, releases, and the future of the site. You can hear his whole speech in the image above.
Here are some of the most interesting points:
- 97% of beta users looked at every single page of the site and content.
- Average Pottermore user spent (spends) 47 minutes on the site.
- New books in line over the next few weeks and months.
- Fans mostly come to the site to read J.K. Rowling’s new content
- Over the next few weeks they will be switching their focus from platform issues to content issues, in which the site is going to get ‘incredibly exciting’ and his job will become ‘much more exciting.’ He also commented that the site will get ‘better and better and better'
- Over the coming weeks you will see more of J.K. Rowling’s content and books ‘fly by’
- New interactives and community functionalities will be added in the coming weeks as well.
- He is constantly thinking about a digital future for Harry Potter on all platforms – tablets, phones, etc. He thinks that they should be thinking about what they can do on Facebook and YouTube.
- Could be seeing ‘enhanced’ ebooks coming down the line in the next year.
