BAIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE THEY REDID POTTERMORE AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A LOGIN TO SEE THE MATERIAL ANYMORE AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO SURF THROUGH THE BOOKS CHAPTER BY CHAPTER AND MAKE E-POTIONS AND GO ON STUPID ONLINE SCAVENGER HUNTS TO GET AT THE NEW MATERIAL THAT IS ALL YOU ACTUALLY EVER WANTED FROM THE SITE IN THE FIRST PLACE

Like I have not had a chance to go through the new site yet so I don't really know exactly how it works and I suppose it could be just as bad as the old one for all I know but HEY IT'S NOT THE OLD ONE AND THE OLD ONE WAS THE WORST SO YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY SITE REDESIGN

HELLO NEW POTTERMORE, I AM SO FUCKING EXCITED TO SEE YOU

(but someone please tell me how the hell I'm supposed to get any work done for the rest of the day)

(or for that matter the rest of the week)

ETA: OK, so I just took five minutes I don't really have to try to surf the new site and I'm... confused. I'm not finding it that easy to find the new material that I know was on the old Pottermore site, like the extended bio of Umbridge or the background on Azkaban or on thestrals or whatever -- I'm assuming it's all there somewhere, but I don't really know where, and the site seems to be very graphics-heavy and not so heavy on Straightforward Textual Lists of Things I Want to See, so I'm kind of lost. But it's got to be better than the old site, because the old site was horrendous. I will explore this later. *Xes out of Pottermore window VERY EMPHATICALLY*

ETA2: WHY IS LAVENDER BROWN LISTED AS "PRESUMED DEAD" IN 1998 THOUGH, SHE WAS "FEEBLY STIRRING" AFTER GREYBACK ATTACKED HER

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT LINK YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH I WILL CHERISH IT. I was always looking for something like that but I'm not a Redditor and it just never crossed my radar. There was a Tumblr that used to syndicate a small amount of the stuff but ALL THE EXTRA CONTENT, INDEXED, OMG DYING OF SQUEE

The first time I signed up for Pottermore it sorted me into Hufflepuff, which I had a hard time with at first because of 'Puff stigma, but eventually came around to being happy about. Then I lost my login or something and made another account and even though I really thought I answered all of the questions the same it sorted me into Ravenclaw that time. I think they tried to keep the numbers of people in each House roughly even, so you could get Sorted into different Houses just based on the demographics of the site at the time when you signed up. Might be worth doing the Sorting quiz again when it's back up, if being a Slytherin really bothers you. (I don't see you as Slytherin either.)
