As mentioned last week, the Pottermore Insider blog has now been updated to answer frequently asked questions that Pottermore beta users have been asking. Concerns dealing with the potions brewing, wizards duelling, and moderation for common room comments are all addressed.

Additionally, the Insider reveals that a Pottermore beta survey will be sent out in a few weeks to those who have already gained entry into the site and will allow fans to provide more specific feedback.

'...It'd be nice to know IF Wizard Dueling will be available to beta testers again. I don't care when, just a yes or not.' [sic]   - cwbrumm

@S Palms: Thanks for the update!! Great to hear that the cheating problem has been fixed :) And that’s double good news for you Slytherins – no one can accuse you of cheating now. Funny how that happened in the books too….

S Palms: I think you always got a point for an incomplete or slightly flawed potion, but lose 5 if you do things in the wrong order.

Site is back up.

@roonwit Really? I read the recent activity a lot and never have I seen any student from any house losing points.

@cb160 I’m pretty sure it’s going in order, besides a couple of glitches here and there.
