First Impressions of Pottermore Appear Online


Aug 15, 2011

Posted by EdwardTLC

A few hours ago, early beta access was opened to a select few registered members of Pottermore, J. K. Rowling’s newest Harry Potter project. A few entertainment sites have posted early reviews and first impressions of the site. Be warned, spoilers Entertainment Weekly had this to say of the site:

First things first, for those who were worried that this would be just the skeletal frame of a game used to sell audiobooks or ebooks or plush sorting hats or whatever: it’s not. Even though the site is currently limited to material relating to the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, there’s still more than enough to make your entire afternoon disappear like a temporus suckus spell.

EW delves further into the detail of the site, commenting on the different moments and elements included in Pottermore. Big Shiny Robot also has a first impression review online, stepping through the first steps of the experience. To hear their thoughts, click here to read.
A number of Leaky readers have let us know they been among those granted early access to the site. If you have, please do let us know @Leaky or in the comments below!

I have been so addicted all day :)Avatar ImageHeiwa says: It looks great! I can't wait!Avatar ImagePhoenix1946 says: Nice review by "Big Shiney Robot". Be sure to read it. Most informative.Avatar ImageLivi22 says: Come on email! I need to get in NOW!Avatar Imagelpierich says: I can't waitAvatar Imagetibby71 says: I just got my email few minutes ago and kept shouting "Oh my God, oh my God!" and had to share this here... I'm so excited!!!Avatar Imagemencia says: I'm still waiting for my email, I hope I'll get it very soon :)Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: Hoping I'll get in soon, soooo excited!!!Avatar Imagemariakingsford says: Can't wait, it looks wicked. :-DAvatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: Are we receiving welcome emails in the order we registered? Has that rumor been confirmed?Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Oh well -- I will have to wait.Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: It looks great!Avatar ImageNoz says: @purplehogwarts No, I don't think so. My boyfriend and I passed the challenge on day 1 at the exact same time (give or take a few minutes) and he got his email several hours ago whereas I'm still waiting for mine. Gggrrr.... Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @Noz Darn! I don't think that's fair. Those of us who stayed up late to get accepted in the first few days should be granted acess first!Avatar ImageHogwartsForever says: Are the Pottermore people letting the media in to have a sneak peak at the Beta PM? I'd hate to think valuable spaces were being wasted on EW and Big Shiny Robot...Avatar ImageNada says: still waiting for the welcome e-mail can't wait :( Avatar ImageNada says: still waiting for the welcome e-mail can't wait :( Avatar ImageNada says: still waiting for the welcome e-mail can't wait :( Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @HogwartsForever - they've let the media have a sneak peak. If you mean are they letting the media log in...I would think the media would have had to sign up like the rest of us. Only way to be fair.Avatar Imagethe average gryffindor says: Yay I got accepted Pottermore is amazing but I'm not going to tell you anything because I don't want to spoil it. Avatar Imagejoe11093 says: I registered on Day 1 within the first ten minutes and i haven't got my email yet :(Avatar ImageNoz says: @purplehogwarts Yeah, I don't think it's fair eather. Why organize 7 different challenges on 7 different days if there is no priviledge for being there on the first day ? I still hope to get it today but I'm quite pessimistic... Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @Noz - the questions were even easier on the last three days...Avatar ImageAcelineWeasley says: i tried so hard for early acess.....*sob*Avatar Imageahaque521 says: awesome!!! so excited to get the letter!!!!Avatar Imagelunamoon1997 says: Can't wait for my early-entrance email. I am so excited!Avatar ImageAlexandraMayWood says: I registered day three and am waiting impatiently for my owl. I can't wait!Avatar ImageNoz says: @purplehogwarts Yes, exactly. I really thought the sooner you succeed, the sooner you're invited embark on the pottermore journey. Well, I'm still waiting for the owl to knock at my window... Is it true that some day 2 or 3 participants already received their email ? Avatar ImageNoz says: @purplehogwarts Yes, exactly. I really thought the sooner you succeed, the sooner you're invited embark on the pottermore journey. Well, I'm still waiting for the owl to knock at my window... Is it true that some day 2 or 3 participants already received their email ? Avatar Imagebelac889 says: Has anybody who got in on day 3 recieve their emal yet.Avatar Imagemencia says: I registered day 4 so I guess I will have a long waitAvatar Imageqwientje says: still waiting for my welcome mail... soo hope it's coming soon!! will be on that site for hours and hours haha! the site just says it's under construction... anyone else that problem?Avatar ImageNickan8r71 says: @Noz I'm a Day 2er and I received my welcome email this morning. Though, I just got started a little while ago and the site went down for maintenance! Darn it!Avatar ImageNickan8r71 says: @Noz I'm a Day 2er and I received my welcome email this morning. Though, I just got started a little while ago and the site went down for maintenance! Darn it!Avatar ImageNoz says: @Nickan8r71 Ok, so it confirms the rumor. I really don't get it then. Why answer on the first day, with the toughest question, if people who have succeeded after us are granted access before us ? This is really disappointing... But congrats Nickan8r71 :-))Avatar Imageashowers36 says: I got in on the Beta. Just waiting for my welcome letter so I can get in. So excited!Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: So far, it still seems like rumor to me. People keep saying that it's random, but every single comment I saw yesterday from people who got in were from Day 1 registrants, and so far from what I'm seeing here the people who got in were Day 1 or Day 2. I've yet to see a post on Leaky from someone who registered on Day 5, for example, and has gotten in. Where are these rumors coming from? Different sites? Has anyone here registered later than Day 2 that is actually in Pottermore? Avatar Imagevkooly says: Cant wait!!!Avatar ImageNoz says: I'd say it's at least more than just chronological, or I'd logically have received my mail by now. If people from day 2 have gotten in, then it's at least random within the day 1 and 2 group.Avatar ImageJeffrey.Potter says: I got early registration! I just got in in week 3...Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: I was a day 5 and still haven't received the mail yet... so, still waiting. Concerning the media been let in before the rest of us, I think is pretty normal. Publicity is very important you know... sadly they are revealing the details even before all the beta users have been let in... this should've happened afterwards... just before the october registration process... Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: Well, that may be true. I was just hoping that registartion was going a bit faster. But I guess there are also some Day 1 folks who haven't gotten their welcome email yet but Day 2 folks who have, so that is strange. Gives me some hope, though! I got in on Day 4. I think the process is fair, even if it's random. People have all kinds of different schedules and obligations that may have found it impossible to try any sooner than they did. That's why I think the Pottermore folks staggared the times. It gave equal chance to all to register early by allowing for different times. Otherwise, only people who's schedules allowed them to get up at midnight and watch their computer would have had a chance to get in. I know it's hard to wait, but sounds like it will be well worth it once we do all get in!Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: the argument that people who got in on the first day should get in first because they worked to stay up to get in doesn't really make sense. A LOT of people stayed up and didn't get in. I know there are people who tried to get in all week, but didn't get in until day almost seems like since they worked harder, they should get in first! So, random makes perfect sense to me. And in case your wondering, I got in on day 3, so in order of registration WOULD benefit me...but I still think random is fair.Avatar ImageNoz says: I'm sure it will be worth it :-) And I still think the process is a tad unfair. In my time zone I had to stay up till 4am, but I did it happily, hoping to get in according to my registration day. I just hope I'll receive my mail today, or tomorrow... Avatar Imagejyassa says: OMG soooooooo cool i still didnt get my email :(Avatar ImageNoz says: I'm not saying that people who got in on the first day should get in first because they WORKED to stay up. I'm staying they should get in first, simply because they were first online. When you wait in a line to get a movie/theater/exhibition/concert ticket, it's only fair that people who are the first to wait are the first to get a ticket right ? The same should go for Pottermore. Ah well, I'll just wait, with as much patience as I canAvatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: Noz, the diffenence is is that the registration process wasn't really a line - it was musical chairs. So once all the chairs are filled and those who don't have a seat are just - out - then what? How do you then decide who gets in the castle in what order? It is tricky, when you think about it. Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: I think that random authorizations are in order. I think that the reason PM gave 7 opportunities to early access was because the site was going to collapse if they let everyone in at the same time just as it did the first time. However once you found the quill you became part of the million people who were granted that early access. From then on, I suppose we were equals, otherwise there would be beta users of the beta users... Come on! Avatar Imagedragonquaffle37 says: Can't wait for my entrance letter!!!!! Avatar ImageNoz says: I thought the registration process was based on first come first served ? You mean that you could register on, for example, the first minute of the first day, and be rejected ? I didn't know that... I was expecting a list of people arranged according to their registration day and hour, and the sooner you got enlisted, the sooner you receive the golden mail... Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: @Noz, I don't think that the anyone who registered was or is going to be rejected... If you registered properly, then you have your early access already granted. And the reason they are doing the authorizations randomly is perhaps because they know that just because you enter on day 7 doesn't mean that you are less interested in getting in... a lot of people had problems on the first days and they also made a great effort trying to get in on the following days... Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: But Noz, what I mean is that even that process was musical chairs, you see? You may have had a slower internet provider, a slower computer because you're poor and can't afford a faster one - there are just so many factors that played into when - or if - you were able to register at all. If you were lucky enough to get registered, then everyone was on an even playing field. Does that make sense? Avatar ImageConi.K says: So, I got my welcome e-mail and tried to log in, but the site is down. I HOPE I get to get in later today. :(Avatar ImageSxPalms says: @Halfblood Princess You are completely right. And I think we should stop arguing about this because we won't be able to entirely figure out how the order goes, unless the Pottermore Insider decides to post something. But even if we do, most likely it won't matter considering by that time, we would've gotten in already. You guys are psyching yourselves out and overthinking everything. It seems to be going in order, but slowly, (with a few glitches here and there, no one's perfect) with registration. I'm Day 2, but haven't gotten an email yet. That may or may not be because I'm in the United States. No one knows. Don't guess though, and start new rumors. Also, no one has said this yet, but my take on the reviewers getting looks inside Pottermore was a way of letting the other fans know what's going on while they're waiting to get the chance to go in. I know it's kept me from going crazy...Don't think I'm not checking my email every hour..Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: Sorry, maybe that doesn't make sense. I just think that once everyone made it through the registration process - which was about as fair as the lottery - then I think if random is how they are going about it (some Insider insight on this would be excellent) is random. Avatar ImageSxPalms says: @LovesLaborLost Yes, that would be a sensible way to do it, and clearly more fair, but you have to realize the Pottermore site and team must be under a lot of stress from all of the registrants. Doing it randomly might make everything un-orginized and just make things messy. Keeping them in order would probably make it easier for them to sort out (and by that I mean figuring and letting a certain number of people in each day).Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: ***Noz Said: And I still think the process is a tad unfair. In my time zone I had to stay up till 4am, but I did it happily, hoping to get in according to my registration day. I just hope I’ll receive my mail today, or tomorrow…*** But so many people DID stay up just as late as you, and for whatever reason, didn't get in, and they tried and tried again...and finally got in on a later day...some not until day 7. Don't you think they're thinking that they worked harder than anyone to get in, so they should get in first? How about people who had to work during one or several of the times the questions were up, but got in at some other time...don't THEY deserve to get in first? How about those who don't have internet access, and had to wait until the public library was open to get in...don't they deserve it? The point is...everyone feels entitled to get in random is the most fair just makes sense. But yes...I'm hoping I get my invite soon! lol ErinAvatar ImageFutureJKR says: Too exciting for words!!!Avatar Imagesfile101 says: for everyone who has to wait a while for their welcome letter, think of it this way. You will get to see a prettier, more bug free pottermore. Ive heard some of the games are glitchy and don't work right now. Maybe they will when we get our pottermore welcome emails, :)Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: Did I say "random is random"? I meant to say "random is fair". Oh, S Palms, what else are we going to do while we wait but wonder and fret? I don't think the speculating will end until we're all in and the comments section is quiet as a mouse except for the occasional "OMG, this is SO awesome!"Avatar ImageSxPalms says: @sfile101 That's exactly what I was thinking. As we speak, Pottermore is already under maintenance fixing some of their bugs and maybe even putting some of the beat tester's suggestions into play. And also, this whole argument is a waste of our time, I think. *All we know is that we don't know anything.* Just wait for the email. In the meantime, go outside and take a walk. Get some fresh air. ;)Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: The nargles have stolen mine!Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: LOL!!!! I totally agree... we don't know anything and here we are discussing without fundament! Relax all! Enjoy the waiting and let's have fun!Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: I think at least all of Days 1-3 people should be granted access before Days 4-7. The first 3 questions were considerably harder than the remaining 4. It only seems more fair that those who had to do more work get access first. At any rate, I'll be mad if I don't get mine till September. Almost seems pointless to be granted access just a few weeks before everyone else. Doesn't give you much time to explore and give feedback.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Obsessing about the fairness of the process seems a bit pointless to me. Bear in mind that a beta test is...well, a test, and we don't know what they're testing, specifically. Sure, part of it, maybe most of it, is pinpointing technical problems. But I'm willing to bet that they are also doing stuff that might be better characterized as market research. For instance, they might want to know if the site looks OK using different browsers, so they might do a test that involves selecting 50 users of each of several different browsers and seeing how their feedback compares. In that case, people who got entry on Day 2 but use a rare browser might get preferential treatment over other people who got entry on Day 1 but use Internet Explorer. It's not unfair if it's helping them see how the whole thing works. Other examples of selectivity that I've seen suggested are comparing groups of users from different countries/languages to make sure the instructions are translated clearly, or from different age groups to get an idea if a particular challenge is too difficult for children. Insisting that they don't have the right to slice and dice the control groups as they find useful, just because we feel entitled to be given access in the same order as that in which we first signed up, just strikes me as a little immature and unrealistic.Avatar Imagesessionka says: I've got mixed feelings about getting an early welcome letter. Part of me hopes it comes, but then part of me wonders how much of the experience I'll miss by getting in early. Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: Still waiting. And waiting. And waiting. And waiting. Do they not know that I'm Riddikulusly impatient?!Avatar Imageizziewitch says: I'm hoping that everything that's there stays there online, so if you go away for awhile (thinking holidays, vacations), you won't miss out on anything. Really can't wait to get my wand and be Sorted! (Bit nervous about the latter, just like a first year!)Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I knew it wouldn't disappoint! Must check my email now!Avatar Imagealexweasley12 says: OMG I CANT WAIT !!! I still didnt get my email today....Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: Thanks, WeenyOwl. As I said before, I don't mind someone, especially kids, getting in before me because it's so much harder to wait when you're a kid. I think you've got some great points!Avatar Imagezweasly says: It's not for me to say what is fair... I am just not-so-patiently waiting for my welcome email! :) I can't wait to see & wish those of you that had gotten in would spill a little more! LOL!Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: This web site might just endanger my marriage. I can see myself spending waaaayyy to much time here. Perhaps I shouldn't be too anxious to get my e-mail. The Big Shiney Robot review was awesome.Avatar Imagejennibelle says: Interesting that both reporters were sorted into Ravenclaw...Avatar ImageRin68nyr says: Lol @Laura K. My husband is used to being an HP widow whenever anything new comes out!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: I don't want to spoil it for myself so I'm not reading the review but I can't wait!!Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: SO EXCITING!! I can't wait!Avatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: I got my welcome letter yesterday! and may I say that Pottermore is beyond amazing!! I sat there for hours on the site! Slight malfunctions with some of the elements but other than that i have not a single bad thing to say about it :)Avatar ImageNickan8r71 says: I got my letter this morning and have been on and off the site ever since. It's really interesting. There are some issues with it continually crashing and certain areas not working, and then causing my session to crash. Those things are disappointing, yes, but I expect there are tons of people on the site right now so maybe it can't handle it. Although, it would seem like they would prepare the site for that kind of traffic. I can't even image how wonky the site will act if they don't improve the level of traffic it can handle before it launched to the public. Anyway, it's still quite fun so far. I got my wand and was sorted! Ravenclaw!Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @Nickan8r71 What do you think of the graphics? What Internet browser are you using? I agree with you that you would think they would be able to handle the amount of people using it, especially since they selected the number. However, the Internet can be a funny thing. They may need to add more servers. Give us more details! I'm dying for more information :)Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: Day 1 registrant (by 4:20 a.m. EST), feeling e-mail yet for entry, trying but struggling to be happy for later registrants already on the site. I realize it's Pottermore's prerogative, but the first-come, first-serve mention led many astray, believing it to apply to early entry. I just wish they had clarified the issue instead of leaving it vague as staggered entry. I checked on later days and found the clues, the timing (for eastern U.S.), and the registration access easier to obtain. I can only speak for myself, but Day 1 required a sacrifice of sleep and work. Please don't assume that all Day 1 registrants had flexible schedules. Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @Floofeather12 I'm not a Day 1 registrant, but definitely agree with you!Avatar Imagemartinse08 says: It was really cool at first, but now it's kind of disappointing. It's become all about dueling, which is fun, but not after the billionth time. I want to it to be like they said it would...primarily about the books.Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: do you have to duel to move forward into the site?Avatar ImageNickan8r71 says: I still haven't been able to get into the Dueling! Arrggh! I can't get into the Potion Brewing either, it just keeps crashing. But I kind of agree with martinse08. The whole thing is interesting, particularly the new info provided by JKR (the little there is), but there just doesn't seem to be a whole lot to work with so far. The graphics are amazing, but there is a serious lack of interaction with each section. I don't want the site to turn into just another online game, but come on, give me something. Still working my way through it.Avatar Imagechoopiggy says: I haven't recieved my welcome letter yet =(Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: Day 1er, using Google Chrome, 22 years old, from USA, Central time, still waiting for Welcome emailAvatar ImageItssointense says: I got my access yesterday. I completely agree with EW. I spent all day on it yesterday. Took me a good 6 hours to get through it because I did a lot of exploring. Very well done I must say.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: It looks great! Avatar Imagemencia says: I'm still waiting :(Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: Does anyone know how many people have been granted access so far?Avatar ImageTalenami says: From what I have read on the first beta-users comments, so far it looks like the site servers are still weak and easily slowed down, although only about 10k people have currently been allowed in. Which means that our emails are not going to let us in very soon... I think Pottermore staff would want their servers fixed by the time they allow one MILLION beta users in! Even the Pottermore homepage is often unavailable "due to overwhelming demand"! Avatar ImageWeetzie says: Hope I don't have to wait 'til September 30th :/Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: @WeenyOwl: I totally agree with you... this whole fairness discussion is completely pointless!!! The PM team is not letting people in just for the fun of it, they are making studies and might be authorizing depending on what they want to check. So, finally... I'm with you on thinking that asking to enter first because you didn't sleep the first day is a little immature and just shows the lack of understanding of the purpose of the beta PM. Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: I would love to hear the Pottercast folk's take on the site now that they've started with the beta testers! Then again, I haven't read any of the articles or anything because I don't want to be too spoiled. Accio Welcome email!Avatar Imagehermioneginnyluna says: It's killing me that I haven't got in yet. Ahh well, I'm leaving in two days for Colorado with no internet, so it'll be okay, i guess. who am I kidding? I need (key word there need) POTTERMORE NOW!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: So far everyone I know who has been sorted has been placed in a house they would not have personally chosen. I think this is a serious flaw in the Pottermore setup... Like the 'real' sorting hat in the books, one's personal preference SHOULD have weight in the sorting process!Avatar ImageSxPalms says: @Won_Two Yea, I assume it's a series of questions, so they should at least ask you for one question which house you would like, and have a bigger value than the other questions. "I think I'd leave if I were in Hufflepuff" trololololol..Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: Does anyone know what some of the sorting house questions are?Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: I thought that in an interview Jo said there would be an element of choice if you didn't want the house you were sorted to? Am I remembering that wrong?Avatar ImageSohumdore says: hey go on its kind of like a poll thing and the site was just created. i think if a lot of people vote on the polls, it would answer alot of questions about who is getting in the beta! spread the word so we can have more accurate polls! fingers crossed for my pottermore email, but if i can actually know WHO is getting on, i wont be as freaked out!Avatar ImageNickan8r71 says: For those who want to know about the Pottermore sorting process (@purplehogwarts), I will give you a little insight. For those who don't, caution, SPOILERS ahead: Fear not, because no matter what some of you have heard, there is a "choice" element to the sorting process. At least there was for me. Maybe it's always part of it, or maybe I was just on the line between two houses so they let me say which one I'd choose. Either way, after all the questions were asked in the sorting process, the last one I was given was something along the lines of "Which house would you rather be in?" and I was given two choices: Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. I chose Ravenclaw and in the end, was put there. As for what the sorting process actually is, it is basically just a series of questions/choices. The way it's visually presented is pretty cool, so I won't give it away, but you are basically presented with certain scenarios/questions. There are sometimes more than four answers, so it's not a simply choice of which one you think goes with which house. Although, to be honest, I think if you are really a fan of the books (and who on here isn't?) you can tell which answers will put you in which house. Having only gone through sorting once, i can't say this for sure, but I would bet that if you wanted to, you could manipulate your answers so that you are placed in the house you really want to be. But where's the fun in that!!!??Avatar ImageGvantsa says: Pottermore is awesome. A lot of reading, which I loved, and a lot of back-story. Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: @Nickan8r71 Thanks! I'm a sucker for spoilers. Haha. Very eager for my welcome letter!! @Sohumdore Thanks for sharing the website - interesting!Avatar ImageSxPalms says: The site is very helpful, yes, @Sohumdore. Unfortunately, it has the same problem as Pottermore ---- it's about to collapse due to the 'overwhelming demand'. :P But, yea, there seems to be a forming trend for each poll. The weird thing, though, is that there are more day 7s getting in than any of the middle days (besides 2). Most of the people getting in are day 1s and 2s. ^ Just giving everyone an overview who hasn't gone there yet.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Awww those lucky devilsAvatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: @sohumdore, how do you see the results without taking each poll? I haven't received my welcome letter yet, so I don't want to spoil the poll results by clicking on each one just to see the results. Am I missing something, or can you only see the results of the polls you vote on? Avatar Imagemencia says: I've stopped hoping to receive mine soon, I'll get it when it comes :)Avatar ImageLovesLaborLost says: I think it's kind of fun and exciting to see how a process like this works, i.e., launching this huge site that has to accomodate millions, keep their interest, etc. I know nothing about how any of it works and I've actually learned a lot just by watching this process unfold. I know whenever I do get my email, it will be worth it!Avatar ImageVane-Ale says: It's interesting how we all are in great expectation... I´ve read so many things already that now I really want to get in! I was a day 5 though, so I'm guessing some more waiting is on the way. I hope that for the time I finally managed to get into PM, at least some of the problems it has presented will have been sorted out.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Wish I was part of those let in!
