Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Haven't been there in months...Avatar ImagePollyC says: I've been watching every day for the new chapters, and dueling to pass the time... and now my pastime has gained me 12,000 points. I don't mind how long it takes Pottermore to reveal new chapters, because I enjoy the game immensely, and want the experience to last forever. Where else can you collect dung bombs, pepper imps, frog spawn soap, and flobberworm slime?Avatar Imagewhysosirius says: I've finished the new chapters.. now to duel and make potions while I wait for more :)Avatar ImageEeyore says: I've skimmed through, collecting things and getting more points that way. I'll have to save reading through everything for when I have more time.Avatar ImageCatherine says: PollyC please tell me you're a Hufflepuff! :)Avatar ImageCatherine says: PollyC please tell me you're a Hufflepuff! :)Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I am thinking of leaving Pottermore, since there's no provision for members with disabilities. Because of arthritis, I can't move my hand fast enough to cast the 'Riddikulus' spell, and when I tried to do it the repeated effort actually made my hand more painful. There are a number of places like this on the site that depend on agile movement, and often you miss key experiences without them. I have tried to contact Pottermore about this a number of times, but never had a proper reply. With all the time and computer expertise spent on the site, they could easily create some special codes to enable disabled users to share in the different experiences. Can anybody think of a good reason to stay on, when the site makes me feel like a second-class member?Avatar Imageredtree says: Most games that I have ever played have had an 'easy' setting, maybe PM should, too.Avatar Imagemoglet says: @Darke, that's a good idea, an option of that sort might be very helpful, I wonder if there is any way of suggesting this to them.Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: I hope that when they get to the book/chapter with Harry teaching Dumbledore's Army to make a patronus, they have some sort of quiz where you can find out what your animal is. :)Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Well, I've tried to get in touch with them via the extremely obscure contact details and tried to fit my concerns into the tiny allowance of words available on the form. In the meantime, I'm still waiting for somebody to give me a reason to stay on.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: PS Darke, an easy setting would be a very good idea, if it still let you access all the experiences that people with full mobility can have on the site.Avatar ImagePollyC says: V-J, Unless PM does change the format to allow for people with less mobility, I don't know if there is any reason for you to stay on. I know how much you love reading the books, and how you've gone through the movies again recently, and how long you've been contributing to Leaky; so PM is just an added dimension, but certainly not necessarily a more fulfilling way to enjoy the Potterverse. I can't even duel with my Mac! Impossible. I have to actually use my sister's PC with a locked-in mouse (cable). I've tried to duel (even the Riddikulus spell) with the keyboard instead and I failed miserably. And Easy level would allow me to duel from my Mac. Catherine, Yes, I am a Hufflepuff. I was sorted into the Badger house on PM, but before that happened, I went to the Wizarding World with my twin and met lots of HP actors and bought the Gryffindor scarf you see me wearing in this photo. Funnily enough, my twin sister was sorted into Gryffindor on PM!Avatar ImagePollyC says: Also, I think the more of us who write on the Pottermore site that we want a format for people with disabilities and an Easy setting, the more likely they will take notice. I will do this now. It's not easy to find the place to make comments, but I did find it.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Thank you. I tried out the suggestions of fellow Leakyers about how to do the spell - e.g. typing the letters instead of doing the mouse movement - but it still involved moving my wrist in a way that was awkward and painful for me. I've had a look at the new chapters (though I hadn't meant to) but couldn't see a lot to do on there at all.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I have now had a standard reply from Pottermore saying that they have 'escalated' my enquiry and I will soon be hearing from a member of their customer service team. It will be interesting to see if they do indeed take it any further this time.Avatar ImagePollyC says: V-J, I have written to PM in support of your concerns, and so has my sister and my husband. Will keep asking my friends to submit comments as well. I do hope PM will make the changes you need.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Thank you. I will let you know as soon as I hear anything about this. I am sure I can't be the only person who is affected by this, since the HP fandom is famously inclusiveAvatar Imagemoglet says: I've also contacted them.Avatar ImageWant to be a Weasley says: I, too, will contact them.Avatar Imagekamion999 says: @Valeria-Johanna moving a mouse quickly with arthitis looks to me like real torture, but have you tried a pen and dwawingpad, just a small one not too expensive. I know changing from mouse to pen&pad more or less cured me from a mouse arm.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: @Valeria-Johanna stay on hopefully things will change. If someone will tell the rest of us how and where to make a comment write on the Pottermore site that we want a format for people with disabilities and an Easy setting, then we can also follow through for you.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: I tried beta feedback but there is no place to make a comment.
