Pottermore

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 22, 2012, 7:12 PM
POTTERMORE!!


I joined Pottermore and have been locked out at the beginning of chapter five with the picture of Diagonal Alley with no idea how to get to the next picture. I have collected objects (not sure if I found everything though), and read everything available, so am not sure what I am doing wrong. Anyhow, please add me as a friend. I am SeerRose29498 ~ there was a choice for a cauldron name, too, that wasn't so bad, but thought SeerRose would be easier to remember.

I have not had the time to go back to the site. Hopefully, I can get back to it soon. It is a lot of fun, but time consuming!

I am all for encouraging kids to be all they can be. Reading is the best way to create a life-long love of books. My kids always came first to me. I'll always have those memories, too. I truly believe such personal attention to children as they grow increases their confidence and intelligence!

He does love to listen to me read. Recently read him the Juveniles version of Dragonlance, Autumns Twilight, I think, the first book. It's an abridged version, which was good since he only had the attention span for one or two chapters unless there was lots of fighting. Which there was. At the end of each chapter, I reviewed it with him. Asking him questions and telling him plot points and having him guess outcomes. And there were plenty of spots he'd ask me what the word meant. But really, most of them he understood. The book is for 8-11 year olds. He's 5.

We went for his assessment for kindergarten and the teacher doing the review was very impressed by his vocabulary and proper use of words and to turn them around. He's very good with -ed, -ing, etc. He was always good at flipping words around like I/me/you. But as you can probably imagine, I overexplain things to him as much as I overexplain anything ;P I don't know what his percentile will be. I know he can read, but he doubts his abilities and does it when we're not looking.

He likes to be sure of something before showing off to us. Like the first time he walked! Or went down a slide. When he thinks we're not looking :aww:

I'm confident in his abilities, I wish he was. He always surprises us with what he knows and what skills he has. He's very funny and clever.

One of my grandnephews read books 1 - 5 when he was eight-years old. He was quizzed on his knowledge of the books and was in the 85th percentile. Kids have to be ready for the books, that is for sure. I used to read my kids and their friends books like, "Tales of a Fourth-grade nothing" and "Superfudge". The kids would sit on the floor and listen until my voice gave out!

I've read them the first time around when my son was a baby. I started over reading it to him again to bed, but then he wanted me to stop. He likes it, but sometimes it isn't what he is in the mood for, I guess.

It was released to the public recently. There were quite a few Beta Testers and the two I know on dA signed up last October 31st. The one deviant as just a number "3" at the end of her screen name for Pottermore! I was just told only the first book is available on Pottermore! I was thinking all the books were posted, so it should be that long to finish the first book. It is getting time again to read all the HP books. It must be done at least once a year! :giggle:

I'd keep refreshing eevery time it locked up. Maybe their site is overloaded. I take it had just released recently.

One of the problems I've had with the site is the screen freezing. I'll keep trying to make it "wake" then have to force quit Firefox, wait a few seconds, open it back up and go back to the site and find where I left off. Of course, every screen I have to look at and play with the mouse since I'm fascinated how the picture moves back and forth (doesn't work on the iPad since it doesn't support Flash ~ I can collect if I can find an item but the screen is static), as well as having to read everything available. Then I panic and go back to make sure I've seen everything. That is one of the problems being OCD. I take medication for it but still have some of the quirks of the condition!

You can go back as many times as you want. I would say google for items to collect and you can find lists of things in each scene. :shifty:

I do understand. I have my two dA accounts, plus all the groups I admin, Pottermore, Subsonic Radio, JPeg and Photobucket, then I have a subscriptions to many podcasts and blogs. It is difficult to keep up with all of the sites!

Thank you and you're welcome! I found out I must use the desktop or laptop to use the Pottermore site effectively. The iPad doesn't support flash. The site is really fun to go through. I was sorted into Ravenclaw, which was a surprise to me. I thought for sure I would be Hufflepuff or Gryffindore.

I'm not very good at doing the wand thing, and haven't figured out how to 'wave wand' for crafting a potion. But then, I've only tried on the laptop where the mouse thing is the fail. :shrug:

I saw that art can be posted. Didn't realize not all the books were not active yet! Not sure how the art loading works, but you could go ahead and post your work. There is so much to learn on Pottermore... It may take me the rest of my life to figure it all out!:wow:

Wow, I could never imagine my life without the Internet. :XD: I guess I'm just too modernized. My grandfather (83 years of age) only uses a cell phone (which he needs for work, otherwise he wouldn't use that either). He certainly does not understand my love for the Internet.

Also, congratulations on such a long time being married! :la: I've been to Universal Studios in Orlando and I've experienced the Harry Potter part of the park. The ride is great (but with a long line, usually) and they've brought in a few shops like Ollivander's and Honeydukes. The only downside is the merchandise is kind of expensive. :lol:

Oh, and I will be going on a school field trip to Magic Kingdom next weekend. When I heard about it, I immediately thought of you. :giggle:

Good advice! I wasn't sure what the point of faving a page was, but now I know! Thanks for the gift, too. Will see what all I can collect then recollect. There is an awful lot to learn about Pottermore. I cannot fathom how much it cost to get it up and running!!!

Gift giving tip, Favorite a place where you collect a lot of things. Try to remember what is there, give those as gifts, come back and collect again! I have tested this twice. I just gave you a rock cake from Hagrid's Hut. Not sure if you can have qty's or not. But I re-collected it. You can have qty's of potion ingredients. Not sure about frog cards. I want to collect them all before I gift any and see if they are re-collectable.

Wonderful! I accepted the request. The site is exciting. One of my brothers is ten-years older than I and he loves HP. The trouble is he is such a Luddite he doesn't know the first thing about computers. His wife just got him a Nook and he has issues with that! And he doesn't have a cell phone. Wish he would join Pottermore but that just isn't going to happen. Both he and his wife and my hubby and I will celebrate 40-years of marriage this October, and it would be so nice to celebrate by seeing Hogwarts at Univsal!

I haven't used the desktop yet to try the site. I see now the iPad is limited with the stylus and lack of arrow keys. How many items can be on a page? I have 8 things in my chest so far.

Will see the eye surgeon in the morning. Still have issues with flashes, black and white dots that look like patterns. Wednesday is the new doctor then will get his referral for the specialist. The insurance is certainly convoluted for being so stingy about payouts.
