    Pottermore is dead.

    Long live WizardingWorld.com

    For now the migration appears mostly superficial, and it's now a lot easier to find all of the "Written by JKR" material: https://www.wizardingworld.com/writing-by-jk-rowling

    However, it sounds like more material may be coming.

    FYI, if you go to take the new Sorting Hat thing, do not link your account with your old Pottermore account. It will just auto-sort you to the house you were already in and it won't let you access the new sorting.

    At least it'll be easy to find the added material now, as I recall Pottermore was a bit of a nightmare to use.

    Cheers for that.

    Sorted to Gryffindor, from Slytherin.

    How about that.

    I got sorted into House Hogwarts. The Sorting Hat timed out, and after like a couple minutes, it came back and said that I had virtues of every house. I also get to have my own special tower that when Hogwarts has need for, it appears. Hasn't been a House Hogwarts student in nearly a century.

    I took that new quiz a few weeks ago, when WizardingWorld.com was created. Was a Slytherin, became a Gryffindor. (I don't mind it that much though.)

    This Hypable article says:
    Although it was talking about taking the quiz on the new app... I just had look on the website and couldn't find an option to change my house or take the quiz again. (I haven't checked out the app.)

    The world is right.

    And I swear I didn't cheat. Well, except maybe once, but then that item (What do you find most difficult to deal with, IIRC) was unclear anyway, and my true answer none of the above. But I did pick wisdom over power, and invisibility over mind-reading, so there's that -- not the typical stuff, I think. I like how this works.

    Edit: Seriously, a mole patronus, though? No idea how they got that one. How is that particularly clever or free? :s
    I'm so going to pretend I got a hawk.

    I do believe cheating just mean you ARE a Slytherin. Especially since you didn't get caught doing it.
    Also, you need to be clever to be a mole. Just ask Snape.

    Why the entire new system? Why not just update/fix Pottermore?

    do you guys know if you have to use a different email? I tried with my old one, and it recognised it from pottermore.

    Well. It's all different for me.

    From Gryffindor to Ravenclaw.
    Phoenix Feather to Unicorn Hair.
    I can't remeber my old patronus but it certainly wasn't a Lynx, which is awesome.
