I don’t know whether you are a Harry Potter person, but I quite enjoyed the books and films so was quite interested to see what Pottermore was about when it was first introduced. I managed to get accepted to the Beta test programme, signed in and excitedly got sorted into Hufflepuff – as did most of my friends. I mixed some potions, found the hidden bits and bought things in Diagon Alley but I have to say that I found the whole experience somewhat lacking.
I found the potions very difficult NOT to mess up and it’s quite galling when you brew a potion for a real-life four hours, only to accidentally drop your grubnits – or whatever – and have to start again from the very very beginning. There was also the promise of wand duels and so forth either with friends or strangers, but this was not working – ok it was a beta, but I found very little of what I wanted to use was working. As I found more and more to dissatisfy me I, inevitably stop using the site altogether.
I’m interested to know if you’ve used the site and what you thought of it. Now it’s opened to everyone, not just beta testers I assume more things must work, so I might revisit it – if I need something else to waste my time!!
