^^^ Hehe.. Yep that's what I'm gonna do. I'm done getting sorted! http://i51.tinypic.com/5f0n7p.gif I'm in....... RAVENCLAW! biggrin.gif Yep... I'm really happy! The other houses are not bad actually (I'm fine with any house but Ravenclaw is the house that I love more). I didn't choose an answer that I think will lead me to the house I want but the answers that really 'speaks' to me because I want to know which I really belong so weeehhh... My charrie's writer is really a true Ravenclaw then... smile.gif I'm not that surprise since ever since most of the quizzes I took tells me to be a Claw (sometimes Puff) and I really don't think I belong to the other houses since I'm not brave (errr), not that nice/loyal/goodfinders ( I'm sometimes mean! tongue.gif ) and definitely not ambitious, cunning, etc...

Yeah..... stupid potions. And puffs aren't bad!

Roxy....... when I took the quiz, I chose the honest answers, but I was about 99% certain I was getting Ravenclaw. Funny thing, about half the online quizzes put me in Gryffindor, but I'm really NOT brave.

Due to high levels of demand, we are currently restricting access to Pottermore. Please come back and try again later. - This why I haven't went on there the past week or two cause i keep getting that stupid message.

Okay, so looking at the Pottermore Beta Survey this was my last comment to them:

I would really like to be able to OWL my friends letters. I mean, whats the point of having the friend feature if you cant even owl them? Also, I dont like the common room comment area. There are so many guidelines on what i can and can not post, that ive given up even trying. IF i just want to say hello to a new person it censors me. Which does get rather annoying. I ended up spending more time on our common room face book page then in my actual common room. ALSO, i'd love to see us have YEARS. For every 3000 house points we earn bump us up a year. So there are 1st years, 2nd years... that sort of thing. It would actually give us something to WORK towards, a personal goal to reach.

Now, looking at Pottermore overall, I think its an innovative fun way to re-experience the Potter series but I honestly thought it would be a bit.... more. As a HUGE fan of Harry Potter, one who spends everyday dedicated to one of the largest Harry Potter Rps for over 6 years of my life, to the point where i actually teach classes at the rp school i was just looking for....MORE. I guess, i found pottermore a little lacking in that there is really and honestly not all that much to do.

SO my question is, after the months of hype and all the issues, what do you guys really think of pottermore?

Complete agreement, Pottermore was made out to be this HUGE awesome experience, and it's kind of turned into a boring flop of a site. Yes it has a bunch of information, yet a lot of it is old repeat information, and it is just a recap of the books. The dueling was fun and then they shut it down the first week in and haven't reopened it at all. So I have found the entire thing to be lacking and haven't even been getting on it.

Honestly HO has more to do and a lot more fun going on in it than Pottermore, which is an oddity since Pottermore was created by J.K. Rowling you would figure the author of the books would have put I don't know, just MORE into it to make it an epic compliment to the books and series and a unique and fun experience for everyone, but it just feels like a recap so the books with some flash games along the way. Most of which you can find mimics of online, I've played potion brewing games similar to the one they have and spells ones as well. No clue on the dueling I only got to try it once and the next day it was down and has remained down. Pottermore to me was just a huge disappointment, after month and months of waiting and staying up until 4 a.m. to get a beta membership and get in early.

I could very well get lynched for saying this but my own personal opinion of Pottermore is it's stupid & a waste of time. The books are over, the movies are over, honestly what's left? Granted my opinion is pretty biased because I'm no longer a fan of the series anymore, not because I think the material sucks(obviously not I've been on this site like 6 years or some ridiculous number) but mainly because it's not interesting anymore. It's just repeated information and material on a webstie, so forgive me if I don't understand the craze of the site. I think Rowling's time would be better suited to write new material than waste time on this website, but again it's just personal biased opinion of a fan who got burned out on the same material being repeated like a Seinfeld re-run.
