Okay, so we've all been anxiously awaiting the announcement from JK Rowling on the Pottermore website. What could it be!? It says you're allowed to sign up for emails and such, but the email sign up is disfunctioned right now because the server crashed or something. Was anyone able to sign up or know what it is?

I think I saw something on the news this morning about it. From what I understand, it's just an interactive website with extra new Potter stuff. No new books from JK sad.gif But I'm not totally sure.

Aw, okay. Well at least it's something! She probably came up with it because she didn't want us all to kill ourselves after the last movie. haha.gif But it finally let me register! w00t.gif

Yeah, I saw the youtube video announcement this morning. It's a little confusing, and hard to understand exactly how it's going to work/what exactly it's going to be like, but JK described it as an "online reading experience." She mentioned something about fans having the chance to help create it, and that she'll be along to share information about Harry Potter that she's been "hoarding" for years. They also announced that the website will sell e-books of the series for the first time.

The whole thing isn't as exciting as a new book would be, but since I knew that wouldn't be it, I can't really be disappointed. I am anxious to see how this thing works. happy.gif

A description of some of it. I'm so excited.
QUOTE
Users will go through a quick registration process and then choose their own “magical username”.

They will then be given a personal home page called “the gateway” that will represent their own journey through each of the seven Harry Potterbooks.

Users move through the story chapter by chapter and are presented with “Moments” which are scenes of significance from each chapter.

In the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, there are 44 Moments, for readers to experience.

Tarek Nseir, chief executive of the digital agency TH_NK, which helped design the site, said: “We have tried to set the scene but allow your imagination to do the rest.”

As fans move through the site they can scroll over different aspects of each scene such as a Privet Drive sign or a cupboard under the stairs.

They can then click on items such as Harry’s sock and uncover new writing from Rowling and additional information about the characters.

Readers will be given a key to access Gringotts Wizarding Bank where a virtual currency will be available to enable them to choose items from a shopping list needed to complete their journey.

They will be issued with one of 33,000 wands and can collect items such as chocolate frog cards and spout flavoured beans to put in their trunk.

Users will answer a series of questions selected at random from a vast pool and will be sorted into one of Hogwarts four houses based on their answers.

The chosen house will be the centre of their experience but Rowling insisted that those not placed in Gryffindor, Harry’s house, should not be disappointed as they will be offered an extra quarter of a chapter to meet prefects and learn about the “true nature” of their own house.

Rowling disclosed that she always considered Gryffindor and Slytherin to be the two closest houses and said that Harry himself could have gone into either. She said she had tested the pool of questions on her own family and each of them was sorted into the house she had predicted.

The author said that each users profile would grow as they progress through the books and add their own comments, drawings and pictures as they go. They will mix potions, challenge other users to duels and interact with various characters along the way.

Mr Nseir said: “The future will be decided by you the reader. It’s the same story but with one new addition, you.”
QUOTE
“Thirteen years after the first Harry Potter book was published, I am still astonished and delighted by the response the story has met. Even though the seventh book and the eighth film have now been completed, I’m still receiving hundreds of letters every week, and Harry’s fans remain as enthusiastic and inventive as ever. So I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you, because no author could have asked for a more wonderful, diverse and loyal readership. I’m thrilled to say that I am now in a position to give you something unique; an online reading experience unlike any other. It’s called Pottermore.

“It’s the same story, with a few crucial additions - the most important one is you. Just as the experience of reading requires that the imaginations of the author and reader work together to create the story, so Pottermore will be built in part by you, the reader. The digital generation will be able to enjoy a safe, unique online experience built around the Harry Potter books. Pottermore will be the place where fans of any age can share, participate in and rediscover the stories. It will also be the exclusive place to purchase digital audio books and, for the first time, ebooks of the Harry Potter series.

“I’ll be joining in too, because I will be sharing additional information I have been hoarding for years about the world of Harry Potter. Pottermore is open to everyone from October, but a lucky few can enter early and help shape the experience. Simply follow the owl. Good luck.”

I'm most excited about this. grin.gif But it'll be cool to know what house I'm in officially, get a wand, and all of that stuff. I just wish we didn't have to wait until October.

Are they going to release all the clues in the morning in Britain, meaning in the middle of the night in the U.S.? If so, that really sucks. noexpression.gif
