Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: It's pretty cool but I'm going to miss the old version Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Ya, I just looked over a bunch of page captures I saved from there... I will miss it too! Avatar ImageAlwaysME says: Can't get in to the New Book section... just get a spinning star "hourglass". *sigh* Nargles.Avatar ImageVoldie says: Oh yeah! Sep 27th! The Casual Vacancy! http://www.littlebrown.co.uk/TheCasualVacancyAvatar ImageGrindylow_101 says: It is cool but I too miss the old one. Hopefully she'll keep it updated rather than just abandon it like she did the old one. (that sound kinda mean but I don't mean it that way). Can't wait for more news on pottermore, maybe a specific date of the public launch. XDAvatar ImageLaura Lestrange says: I loved the look of her website, is very similar to the way I imagined, except for not having more messy desk. And I am already very anxious, eager to get just that in September, which will then buy the new book: The Casual Vacancy!Avatar ImageJacques Delacour says: The mobil site isnt working so I have to wait till I get home. :( Avatar ImageLivi22 says: Yay! Having the best time looking through it!Avatar ImageLoony54 says: Nooooo!!!!! Does this mean the beautiful old website will never be seen again???????? It was pretty much the coolest website of all time!!!!!!!!!! How could it be gone?????? :(((((( And there was all that interesting information about HP stuff! I guess people that are just becoming fans will never be able to see it.... This is depressing.Avatar Imagemariakingsford says: it's weird at first.Avatar Imagenatalia96 says: You get used to it quicklyAvatar ImageCatherine says: LOVE IT!!!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Having never spend muct time of her other site, I'm giving this a shot with an open mind. :)Avatar ImageJacques Delacour says: Im sure the new Pottermore website will include a lot of the information about HP that was formaly on her personal website. But I must say that I just got to check out the Deathly Hallows II premiere for the first time and omg! The ending was so emotional when the actors and Rowling were giving their final words. How could any fan not cry along with them? Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: yesAvatar Imagesue1308 says: On the website, it's said that a lot of the older stuff from the JKR website would be going on Pottermore, so that's super. Also, did you notice this tiny bit from Q&A? Q: What about the Harry Potter Encyclopaedia? A: For a long time I have been promising an encyclopaedia of Harry’s world, and I have started work on this now – some of it forms the new content in Pottermore. It is likely to be a time-consuming job, but when finished I shall donate all royalties to charity. So she's working on it right now! I went straight out of my head when I read this...Avatar Imageroonwit says: sue1308: Yes, I was happy to see that the Encyclopaedia is still in progress and hasn't been replaced by Pottermore - the new information on Pottermore is certainly interesting but I feel she has a lot more to tell, including stuff that wouldn't really fit into Pottermore.Avatar ImageMagical Arts says: Looks so amazing! Got LOADS of things to read for a potterhead! :) * happy * happy *Avatar Imagetinagin says: @ Jaques Delacour. Ditto on the vid from the DH 2 movie premiere. I watched it last night and simultaneously was laughing and crying at the end where Emma seemed to set everyone off when she started to cry. Such a great moment. I am very excited about the new website and new book.Avatar Imagemoglet says: I'm very glad to read her conformation that she IS writing the encyclopaedia that so many of us have been waiting for. Just to know that she is definitely doing this makes me very happy. I've been exploring the new website and it looks pretty good, I just found the interview that Dan did with Jo which was on bluray but not on the DVD, so now hopefully everyone will get to see that.Avatar ImageTarana says: @sue1308: Thanks. That is great news! @moglet: Thanks for the tip. I have found the interview. I was so annoyed when it wasn't on the DVD. And I probably wouldn't have found it, if you hadn't said it was there.Avatar Imagevandy says: I will miss the old site :( I guess it's one of the many things we should get used to about HP..no more books.. no more movies.. Fingers still crossed for the encyclopedia Avatar ImageEmilyLovegood says: I think it looks pretty awesome. Avatar ImageMichelle32 says: The website is neat but I'll miss her old one. But Pottermore should be amazing!!!!!Avatar ImageAlice December Potter says: i really miss the old version, how we could explore her office and such, but i suppose this version is more general towards Jo rather than having a website that focuses on harry potter alone. We have pottermore for that now!! She's given us a new harry potter playground thats bigger and better!! im glad that shes taking the jkr site as her very own and used as a plot of her life as it really is: not completely harry potter oriented. Good for you, Jo!! Thanks for everything!! =0DAvatar ImageAlice December Potter says: By the way, Jaques Delacour, i am right there with you. I teared up a little when i watched the Deathly Hallows Part II premiere at the end with Jo's speech. (And might i add that she looked gorgeous in that floral dress? it was so her. I want it.)Avatar Imagelovelle says: i saw it already! and props to the people who created it because it deserves a standing ovation! I really love the organization and the simplicity of it! I really really love it! :D (but i am quite sad that it's not HP-centered anymore, but I'll move on!)
