From the looks of things, a whole lot of people have gotten access into Pottermore for the first time over the past couple of days. I’ve been exploring it thanks to a friend for a few weeks now, and got my own account this week – I’m a Ravenclaw, of course (anybody surprised?). My initial impression is that while it’s a fun site, and has some cool resemblances to this one, it’s not going to be a project that fundamentally affects anything that I do here. Which, I must admit, allows me a bit of a sigh of relief. :)
A couple of quick things for those who signed up for early access. First, a dear friend of mine is collecting data on the wand selection and Sorting processes, and for those who have already been Sorted, it would help her out greatly for you to fill out her anonymous survey. Please only do this if you’ve already been Sorted, so her results are meaningful! Here are the links:
Wand questions: tinyurl.com/wand-questions
Sorting questions: tinyurl.com/sort-hat-qs
Finally, if anybody is interested in being Pottermore friends, I’d love to see you there! Drop me a comment or an e-mail (john at hpcompanion dot com) with your screen name and your real name (or the name you use on this site) and I’ll send you a request.
In the meantime, I am indeed working on my next post for *this* site, which should be arriving soon! Take care….
