Badges a New Addition to Pottermore

Yesterday, the Pottermore team added Badges as a new way for users to experience the site. The Pottermore Insider reports:

Badges are a new, fun and rewarding addition, which we hope students will enjoy acquiring as they explore Pottermore. 

Currently, three Pottermore Badges are available – the Explorer, Discoverer and Scarlet Engine. More Badges will be coming in the near future so keep a look out and make them a part of your Badge collection. 

You can view the Badges on your profile page, where you will be able to see the ones you have been awarded, or learn how to get your next Badge, by hovering over the Badge name and following the instructions. 

In the meantime, let us know what you think of the new Badges, which ones you’ve collected and if there are any you’d like to see become available in the future.

I just logged in, and they gave them all to me. They aren’t exactly hard to unlock either.

Has anyone else wondered how they will manage to put the later books into Pottermore format, with jolly games to play? I mean – click on the right bead of the chandelier to stop Professor Burbage being tortured? ::mind boggles::

I got mine… reward for zero effort is always rewarding . Really, it doesn’t matter to me one way or another. I got on PM this weekend to see if I had missed anything (alas, no) & then when they released the badges I logged on, saw mine and got off.
