ETA

Slytherin - once the smallest house - is now the second largest, behind Gryffindor. Ravenclaw - once the largest - is now the smallest.
I also got a very small amount of duels before my limit was reached....and I'm guessing it's obviously because of the great influx of new students but they really need to make it so people can duel more than just 5 duels or so at once. It's also making me wait a longer time than usual before I can duel again.

Anyway I've told my sister, boyfriend, and friends about the fact that it's now open so I hope they can make accounts because it seems like they are slowly letting people in and they could potentially cut it off at any time.

My account also still shows Beta.

It's also interesting how there are suddenly a ton of people in Gryffindor and Slytherin and less in Ravenclaw. Hufflepuff was always 3rd in terms of the number of students so I guess my house hasn't changed much in terms of that.

Well, looks like I was mistaken... a tinsy tiny little bit.

But hey look at me contributing incredible 86 House Points to the Ravenclaw House. Not bad.

Re: Pottermore v.11

The CEO of Pottermore gave an interview recently in which he said that the next books will be opened up later in the year, he spoke of months. Which means they probably will see how the site hold up with the amount of new people on the site. So in a couple of months we could expect CoS. But take it with a grain of salt.

Re: Pottermore v.11

You can duel and make potions for house points. When you use potion ingredients, you can go back to some of the chapters to refill your potionkit (for wolfsbane etc)

Re: Pottermore v.11

I just discovered that Pottermore was finally open. You can tell who the new members are by how many digits they have in their name. I'm seeing four and five digits now that it is open. My husband signed up, getting the really cool username of UnicornDragon, and now I can't wait to see what House he'll be sorted into once he gets his confirmation email and can log in.

It is strange to see that Gryffindor has the most members and Ravenclaw the least. I wonder if that will change once more people get sorted.

My husband signed up too and got the incredibly cool name IceCastle (plus five digits). No confirmation letter yet, but I can hardly wait to see his wand and sorting. I'm guessing Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff for him. Probably Hufflepuff. He's really smart but really mellow.

Re: Pottermore v.11

I don't know whether this is just me, or how long it's been going on for because I haven't signed in in months , but the gateway has stopped showing my friends' activity, though when I go on the friends page, they're all still there

They made that change in March when they closed for a week. You'll also find the notification system is different. There are a lot less of them now.

Re: Pottermore v.11

Re: Pottermore v.11

I had a choice of a handful of usernames. I couldn't make my own. The pages load too slowly, I didn't see any new info except about Petunia and Vernon.
I'll take her encyclopedia any day of the week and I hope it comes out soon.

Everybody gets five usernames to choose from. The pages load quickly on my computers. I'm using a Macbook Pro (2008) and a Macbook Air (2010). What is your setup like?

The info on Petunia and Vernon is in Chapter 2, "The Cupboard Under the Stairs."

The encyclopedia may come out at some future date - she has indicated that she has begun working on it - but it will probably take a good while.

No one can choose their own username.

I just went on, and it is a lot slower than usual. Probably the influx of new members. Should be back to how it was in a few weeks...

And there is a fair bit of new info, but it isn't available in every 'moment'. You need to go through each chapter and their moments to find out where it is. Although I wouldn't advise to do so right now since it seems so painstakenly slow...

I'm not having any trouble with loading pages. Everything's running smoothly so far.

My boyfriend got DraconisSun (and of course a bunch of numbers after that).

He's not sorted yet. I'm not sure if he got his e-mail or not yet but I know he's also busy so I don't know how much time he'll have to be on the site yet.

One of my friends got sorted into Hufflepuff like me but I don't know the sorting of anyone else yet.

I just duelled some Slytherin with the coolest user name ever.....MitternachtRain (and then random numbers which I won't specify since so as to leave this person totally anonymous) but it's just really cool since that means Midnight Rain and there is this song called Mitternacht which is really cool:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmK5vyP2GRU

Also, the site is running smoothly for me too. I haven't had any problems, just that I get duel limited more often.

EDIT:

Another of my friends just sorted....also Hufflepuff. Wow. We are all Hufflepuffs so far.

EDIT 2:

My boyfriend has been sorted! HE'S A SLYTHERIN.

Wow.....this is so epic....

Re: Pottermore v.11

I know pottermore is open to the public and the shop is up and running but does anyone else still have the lock at the top? I thought that that's where the ebooks were going to be.

Re: Pottermore v.11

Yup, that's still there. It might be Hogsmeade or a new game released with CoS or another book. Or it will be the shop at some point.

Re: Pottermore v.11

I just signed up, I hate not being able to choose my own username but I at least got a decent one. Going to be interesting to see how long the site can keep my interest up, I'm in it for the sorting and getting a wand.

Re: Pottermore v.11

This is new - they're telling me there are too many duels going on and that I'll have to wait. And I have three duel challenges pending, and can't do any.

Hopefully this will change in about a week or two, after the traffic slows down.
