The site still really needs a lot of work, but as for potions, I think I’ve figured out how to brew them, have done the Cure for Boils twice now with success, so I think I’ll try to proper ones now. Who knows how that’ll go..

I’ve noticed the site was acting better today. That’s good news! I’m also glad all betas have finally been sent their long awaited Welcome Emails.

Current student enrollment is only 506,349 though. I find that interesting.

And also some brews take 95 mins to brew – why is that? definitely not too happy about that..

@purplehogwarts. I think that low number is due to the fact that they recently just activated the rest of the accounts (maybe around 600,000) and the site can’t handle that many people..so a lot of people are unable to get sorted or get their wand even. I heard some people are stuck at Gringots because their account is at 0 Galleons. I hope everyone gets sorted soon!!

I request artists out there to use the time that Pottermore is unavailable to draw some pictures of Crabbe and Goyle. Yes, they are very obviously not very popular. I think there were only two pictures of each drawn on Pottermore. Every other character had lots of awesome pictures to look at.
(The drawings of Ron were particulary excellent.) Anyone up for the challenge?

hey I have a question for those who have gone through chapter one of the first book um I was trying to find the hidden object that is supposed to be in the lampost next to Dumbledore but when I zoomed in around the lampost and in it nothing happened was doing it it wrong? Or was I supposed to do something else?

Well, I managed to buy a brown owl before getting kicked out again. Wanted to get my wand but I think that will have to wait until after band rehearsal.

It’s unlocking measurements. I believe you get it by clicking on the lampost while it’s zoomed out. I have heard that some people are unable to unlock it sometimes. Some say it’s a browser problem. I’m just going from what I heard though. I didn’t have a problem myself.

Guess That Book

Ron looked as though he'd just been told he had to go and live in the Forbidden Forest.[br]"Can you imagine me taking exams with this?" he asked Harry, holding up his wand, which had just started whistling loudly.
