Ask Your Pottermore Questions

Posted by: Melissa

Hi all!

We know that a lot of you have questions about Pottermore, J.K. Rowling's new and recently announced Web site. We've seen questions about how it will work, what it will look like, what it will contain, and more.

The team at Pottermore have asked us to help collect your questions so they can answer some things for you. Not everything (for instance, about exactly what will happen on July 31, or more details about J.K. Rowling's involvement) can be answered, but if you want some more detail about the site, how to compete for the house cup, how to progress through the story, etc., then this is the opportunity.

Just TWEET your question to @leaky using the hashtag #pottermore starting right now. Leaky's team will sort through them and send the most-asked questions to Pottermore by the end of this week.

Thanks, everyone!

I code websites, that email address will fail on most of them. Most email addresses are in the format yourid then @ then the domain a single period and the top level domain (.com or .net etc). If you have an email with more than one period after the @ then yes, there is a very good chance it will fail. Open a free gmail account, its free and will be acceptable for pottermore.

DavidTheUnready: It isn’t that simple. I have an email address with more than one period after the @ (though not a .com or .net) and it registered successfully.

*RubeusHagrid, that wasn’t a stupid question that roonwit asked. From what I had read, we’ll learn more about the house we’re sorted into (if it’s not Griffindor), but not that everyone else will. Although, I hope we can have access to that info.

Hope Leaky will post answers to the questions asked via Twitter, because I don’t have an account either—and don’t want to get one.

I have a Twitter … but why do you need to ask the questions via Twitter? Why couldn’t you ask them on Leaky instead of Twitter. Confusing…. But my question(s) would have to be: What exactly does Jo mean by a “reading experience” for Pottermore? Do you have to unlock new content or will it just show up?

I just wanna know if Neville has Kids and if it will be revealed on Pottermore, I know, I’m weird :P

TheOtherHorcrux: Using # tags on twitter is a form of marketing, because much #ed topics are more likely to come to the attention of other twitter users.
It looks from the images that there a certain amount of unlocking required, because the Hogwarts Express image has locked tags at the top of the gate corresponding to Hogwarts locations. The gateway image looks like a user status page, and there is a winding path around circles corresponding to the books.

I knew there was a reason I kept “Twitter” open and updated ; )
The question I was having was will ‘Pottermore’ be ‘monitored’ from people using tasteless or vulgar language or jokes? I know J K Rowling hates that and won’t allow it on her personal FB page. I think sometimes younger people think it’s ‘cool’ to cuss but seriously IT’S NOT necessary!
