Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

Yeah, I don't want to share anything on facebook and I don't have any of the others

So I've 'collected' everything but the motorbike game cos it won't work. Is there going to be anything different tomorrow? I hope so...

Well, we are over a tenth of the way till the first reward!

I don't know if there will be anything different today, but I think you can start all over again and earn points on the stuff you already downloaded or watched. When I went to the page I got 15 points for registering, even though I registered yesterday. That was weird. Hopefully the point values will increase. Only 150k points is pretty dismal!
Ok, i take it back about being able to download/watch videos again for points. That doesn't seem to be the case for me this morning. Oh, WB...this is really stupid!

Hmm, I thought it would be a search websites type thing to get clues to get to the next part.

Disappointing WB.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I was just wondering if it's just my computer that won't play the sound on the videos? It's fine with the games but I'm having to make my own commentary for the trailer etc.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I wish there was more to this as well. I don't even feel like watching half the videos. I've seen them all before so I just let them play in the background for the most part.

Yes, they could have released some footage *with* the website, rather than having to make us earn it.

I've done all I can do--I'm not sharing stuff on FB, but I have watched all the videos and downloaded all the wallpapers. It's dumb that there's not new stuff to earn points with--so the system relies on new people signing up on the website and participating. It's a bit much to ask for a silly promotional site.

Yes...i agree. Im still confused on why they didnt give us a picture every few hours, or a new 5 second video if we earn like 100,000 in one day. i dont have any friends that are into harry potter (columbus casualty big time)...so i cant really share it on facebook.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

This really is kind of silly/lame. And yet I can't really say anything as I've registered and am still playing all the videos in the background while I work. I'm just really curious what kinds of "rewards" we will actually get.

Side note: anyone else annoyed by the titles of the videos? Discovering Aragog is labeled as: Harry and his friends finding a "magical tarantula".

(Anyone else having trouble getting onto the website right now?)

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I am sure that my account somehow got deleted!!

I logged out and then I tried to log back in but couldn't....

So I made a new account and now can get more points

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

Well, we're almost a third of the way to the first video to unlock. It doesn't seem like it's going to be worth it though I really hope that the next rewards are better.

I do hope that WB has noticed that we are collectively disappointed with this...

I am seriously hoping that this is not how they release the trailer. That will be highly irritating!

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I finally managed to get it working on a new computer, must just be my ancient laptop that doesn't like the site

This is exactly what I'm doing, seems the easiest way to start earning points and I'm not particularly motivated to do much else unless they promise something good

I refuse to share them either, I have facebook and twitter but the last thing I want to do is clog them up. It is a bit disappointing overall, and I never got the email telling me it had started so I I bet there are plenty of people still completely unaware of it, it's not been pushed nearly enough for it to be worth it.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

What exactly will the video be about?

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I'm just hoping there are better things after it....

Just passed 400,000 points. We are likely to get this video in 3 or 4 days...
