It definitely has me intrigued about what it could be, but I'm not sure how excited I am just yet. I'm waiting to see exactly what it is before I get my hopes up.

Re: Pottermore

I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of happy those pics were fake. As fun as it would be to have an online encyclopedia, I'm with those who would prefer a hard copy. Also, the social networking side of it sounded a bit... blah. We've already got those, even Harry Potter ones. I'd much prefer the mmorpg, so if that's still a possibility, I'm VERY happy.

What about for people who are practically broke and can't afford the Encyclopaedia? What would they do if they wanted to do some Potter-research? I'm not saying that I disagree, because I too would prefer to have the book in my hand, but still...

I too would probably like the mmorpg the best, but barring that, I would be thrilled over the Encyclopaedia, especially because if it's online, it can be updated if JKR decides that she wants to add something or change something.

Re: Pottermore

I personally would much profer what those images show to an MMORPG. If an MMO was being made i doubt Rowling would be this involved in it. It would most likely be treated just like any other Harry Potter game.

Re: Pottermore

I'm so excited about something new coming from JKR, that I'm not even too worried what it will be! It was fun waiting for the 10 coordinates - it reminded me of those days when we would be staring endlessly at her website hoping to find clues about the next book. I'm delighted!

I'm guessing Pottermore may have, in addition to many other things, something related to the final movie. What exactly, I'm obviously not sure. But the timing is making me think so.

Re: Pottermore

I'm so unbelievably excited!!!!!! I really hope it has something to do with the Encyclopedia, because we've been getting clues about it for so long now. As she has said, Pen and Paper are her first priority. I'm getting a feeling though that it's probably going to be some sort of online game, and even though I've never been one to play those sorts of things, I would give it a go. I'm just so happy we have something to look forward too and gossip about endlessly.

The information, like the information from all the other books, would of course make it online. Either to the Lexicon, Wikipedia or just summaries of people who have read the books.

I guess I could see Jo deciding to release the information publicly instead of forcing her fans to buy another book. But she could, like with the other add-on books, donate and profit she makes from another book to charity.

Re: Pottermore

Has anyone noticed the Do Not Disturb sign on the door at jkrowling.com?
You have to turn the timeturner to today's date.

Re: Pottermore

The Do not Disturb sign is gone and there is a note. I think we'll be looking at an encyclopedia... I'm not really sure though..

Re: Pottermore

Ok.. I'm at a lost here. There is still no Do not disturb sign on the door, but now if I open the door there is the Family tree we found a few years ago...

How come other people see a do-not-disturb sign and I don't and I find old junk???

Re: Pottermore

Yes, but I also see the "Do not disturb sign".

What's the official twitter site?

I say it's an online game platform. Like WoW... World of Witchcraft!!!

Re: Pottermore

Encyclopedia, roleplaying site, I don't mind. Just glad JKR is returning to HP!

If we take the title literally, it means more Potter...maybe more books? (A prequel with the Marauders? Please, JKR? )

Yep... I have. But even if I don't, there is still no do-not-disturb sign. She's playing tricks on us... I know it...

Or more information, refering to the encyclopedia take on this. Also with a web based encyclopedia I surpose there would always be the oppotunity to have it updated.

Re: Pottermore

I'm quite liking the idea of the online encyclopedia, and I think it's the most likely. If it was a social networking site or massive online game then I don't think JKR would be as involved as she seems to be. Like others, I would prefer the encyclopedia as an actual book, but beggars can't be choosers

I've not felt this giddy since back before DH was released, JKR really knows how to make her fans relive their childhoods of staring at that door on her website waiting for it to open
