    Last week we asked you which of these Gryffindor common room passwords, used during Harry’s first three years at Hogwarts, is your favourite.

    The results are in – was your chosen password the overall favourite?



    Caput Draconis and Fortuna Major are the favourites, as chosen by the Pottermore community; but whilst Caput Draconis was slightly more popular amongst Facebook voters, those voting on the Pottermore Insider preferred Fortuna Major by a long way!

    Brewing potions may not be Harry’s favourite activity, but we know many of you enjoy brewing on Pottermore.com– probably because it’s much easier to concentrate without Snape looming over you.

    However, losing control of the temperature whilst heating your potion and destroying your cauldron is an issue that even the most skilled of you are likely to have encountered.

    Here’s the number of cauldrons that were destroyed by Pottermore.com users this week:

    We know that many of you have been looking forward to exploring the concluding chapters of the third book in the series - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - on Pottermore.com, and we are delighted to tell you that the finishing touches are being applied, and the chapters will be ready for you to explore in the coming weeks.

    If you’re curious about the Moments to come, you’ll find a glimpse of one of them below. What do you think this black and white sketch depicts? You can discuss your thoughts in the Great Hall or common room on Pottermore.com, or let us know your theories on our Facebook page if you have an account, or via Twitter with the hashtag #PrisonerOfAzkaban.

    As soon as the concluding chapters of Book Three are ready, we’ll not only update the Pottermore Insider, but you’ll receive an Owl Notification on Pottermore.com and an email from us, so make sure the email address you registered with is correct!

    Last week we started looking at the top potion brewers from each house, and we started with those from Gryffindor (who were the current leaders in the house points standing).

    Today we look at Hufflepuff’s finest brewers, who have been unafraid of toil as they work hard brewing potions to earn points for their house.

    When the concluding chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are released in the coming weeks, we will also be introducing some new features to Pottermore.com. Over the next few weeks, here on the Insider, we’re going to tell you about some of them. We’d like to start by telling you about the Story Navigator.

    The Story Navigator

    On Pottermore.com, Harry Potter’s story is depicted through a series of interactive illustrated Moments accessed from the Gateway. With the continued addition of more Moments we wanted to create an easier way for you to browse through them.

    The Story Navigator will allow you to browse through all the available Moments in any order you wish

    For those who know the stories inside out, you might want to jump straight to parts of the books that you love the most, whether you’ve explored the Moments leading up to them or not. The Story Navigator will allow you to skip ahead to any Moment available on Pottermore.com, giving you the freedom to explore them in any order you wish.

    For those who would like to follow Harry’s story as it unfolds in the books, you will still be able to explore the Moments in the order they are presented to you – chapter by chapter, Moment by Moment.

    The way you explore the Moments will remain the same; most Moments have multiple layers so, using your mouse to double click, you can explore each layer and find items to collect, as well as new writing by J.K. Rowling to unlock and read.

    All Moments that you’ve yet to visit will appear to you in black and white, whereas all those you’ve already explored will be shown in full colour. There will also be some markers to show you where to find J.K. Rowling‘s new writing and other interesting things in the Moments.

    Stay tuned to the Pottermore Insider as, over the next few weeks, we will be telling you about some of the other features that we will be introducing on Pottermore.com, as well as releasing more information about what’s coming up in the final instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

    We announced last week that the concluding instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban will be released in a few weeks’ time, and we thought you might enjoy hearing from a core member of the Pottermore creative team about her experience of working on this final instalment. Please be aware that some information in this article might contain spoilers if you haven't yet finished reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.


    Quick Facts

    Q: How old were you when you first read Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone?
    A: I read the first book when I was eleven, then waited adamantly for the second one to come out, then followed the series through from there. 

    Q: Who is your favourite character in the series?
    A: Lockhart: I really think he is one of the funniest characters in the books.

    Q: Of all the new content that J.K. Rowling has released so far on Pottermore.com, which is your favourite?
    A: McGonagall’s backstory because you learn a lot about her past, which is not alluded to in the books.


    The Interview

    Q: Describe your role in Moment production at Pottermore
    A: I work within the creative team and together we come up with ideas for Moments, then discuss and develop them with our artists. Once our artists have sketched them we provide feedback on what should be changed in order to make sure that the Moments look beautiful and that they’re completely fictionally accurate before we take them to colour. We also work on trying to fit as much interactivity, animation and life into the Moments as possible.

    Q: In order to work on Book 3 Moments, did you re-read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
    A: Yes! I read the whole book again before we started planning the Moments, but I have read and re-read the books so many times since they first came out anyway that it didn’t feel like extra research.

    Q: When you were re-reading it and thinking about these future Moments, what were you really excited about creating?
    A: The Moment I was most excited to create was ‘Exam Time’ because in the story it always seemed such a fun scene. It’s really rich in description and so different to the sort of thing you normally associate with taking an exam! It’s also one of the Moments that wasn’t visualised in the films, so we really wanted to include it on Pottermore.com. The books are packed with detail and it’s always so nice to be able to show something that hasn’t already been covered. 

    Another Moment that I was excited to create was the full moon scene with Sirius and Lupin fighting, as it is a really iconic scene from the third book. As soon as we started talking about it we knew we could make it look very striking and beautiful.

    Q: You’re now applying the finishing touches to the final Moments of Book 3. Which of the upcoming Moments are your favourite?
    A: Personally, I think the Moment that looks most beautiful in this instalment is ‘The Committee’. It depicts the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures approaching Hagrid’s hut at dusk, and a whole host of other things. I think it’s such a lovely Moment; it was really well executed by the illustrators. As a reader you return to this particular scene more than once in the third book and, likewise on Pottermore.com, our users will be seeing this Moment more than once, so I’m glad it’s turned out so well. 

    Q: Is there anything that was particularly challenging, but that you were passionate about getting right?
    A: Red Caps, in the ‘Exam Time’ Moment, are the most complicated animations we’ve created so far. Red Caps are little dwarf-goblin-type creatures who are quite malicious. In the book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, we learn that they live in potholes and clobber people to death with clubs and that they like to hang around on battlefields or wherever human blood has been spilled. In mythology it’s said that their hats are dyed in human blood… they are not pleasant!

    Q: What was it about the Red Caps that was so complicated?
    A: One of the most difficult aspects was getting the animation of their gestures right. In the books, Red Caps are Dark creatures so we wanted to create this gruff, threatening persona. At the same time we wanted people to have fun with the Moment so we didn’t want it to look like a horror film. We had to work hard to get that balance right, and not make them look comic in any way either! 

    For this Moment we did two separate pieces of work: we worked with the artists to create the background artwork; then created concept art for each of the creatures separately, so that when we placed the creatures in the Moment we were 100% happy with how they looked, 

    We were also really pleased with how the Hinkypunks turned out. The Hinkypunks are lovely: they are made of smoke and they carry a little lantern, but they are not what they seem as they lure travellers into bogs!


    Concept art used to illustrate Red Caps

    Q: You mentioned Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Do you often use the companion books as part of your research for the Moments?
    A: All the time! We always look at the descriptions within the Harry Potter stories (all seven books) first, but the three companion books by J.K. Rowling are incredibly informative too. For example, when we’re creating Quidditch-related Moments, we’ll fact-check within Quidditch Through the Ages and cross-reference this with the main stories. 

    We have a wealth of other sources that we can use as well, such as past interviews with J.K. Rowling and the extra information that she has written for Pottermore.com, to make sure we have the fullest and most accurate picture possible. 

    Q: Speaking of the new writing from J.K. Rowling, the final instalment will contain even more exclusive information from the author. Which piece do you think the Pottermore community will be particularly excited about?
    A: I think fans will be most interested to read the new writing on Remus Lupin, which describes how Lupin and Tonks fell in love amongst other things, and which includes a description of Lupin’s childhood and how he became a werewolf. 

    Q: If you could only collect one of the collectibles in the next instalment, which one would it be?
    A: There is one collectible that I hope everyone will love, which is hidden in Lupin’s office. I don’t want to reveal what it is because I want it to be a surprise, but I hope the community find it as funny as we did when we thought of it.

    Q: Did you ever think when you were a child reading the books that one day you would be able to work so closely with the stories as part of your job?
    A: I never could have believed that something so amazing could come my way! I’m really lucky to work on something I love so much, and to share it with so many other people who love it too.

    Q: And our final question: Which Hogwarts house did the Sorting Hat place you in on Pottermore.com? And do you agree with where you were placed?  
    A: I’m in Ravenclaw, and it never occurred to me that I would be in any other house! I’ve always been a bookworm and I have been called eccentric at times. I’m very proud to show my blue and bronze colours! 


    We hope you enjoyed this interview and that you are looking forward to the upcoming Moments. You can join the conversation about this interview on our Facebook page if you have an account, or on Twitter using the hashtag #PrisonerOfAzkaban

  • 07/19/13--11:41: Ravenclaw’s finest brewers
  • This week we’re celebrating those Ravenclaws who probably pay the most visits to the Apothecary to replenish their stock of potion ingredients, as we reveal the top 10 Ravenclaw potion-brewers.

    We’ll be celebrating the birthdays of these two very special characters by sharing some of our favourite Harry and Neville artwork submitted by the Pottermore community, so get creative! You can submit your very own depictions of Neville here or of Harry here.

    If you’re unsure how to upload a drawing, read our Pottermore Insider tutorial.

    We look forward to receiving your images of these two brave Gryffindors!

    We recently announced that along with the final instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, we will be introducing a new feature called the Story Navigator (read about it here), which will enable you to browse more easily through thumbnails of all the available Moments depicting Harry Potter’s story on Pottermore.com.


    But that’s not all. Here are two more reasons why we think the Story Navigator will be useful to you:

    The Discovery Bar

    If you’re ever worried that you have overlooked a hidden Galleon or Potions ingredient, or even that you’ve missed one of the exclusive entries by J.K. Rowling, you will now be sure whether you’ve explored each Moment in full, or whether you still have more to discover. There will be a new Discovery Bar displayed along the bottom of each Moment thumbnail on the Story Navigator, so those of you who like to leave no stone unturned will know whether you have discovered everything within that Moment or not.



    Moment Markers

    In our last article about the Story Navigator we mentioned that there would be some markers against the thumbnail images of the Moments, to show you where to find J.K. Rowling’s new writing and other interesting discoveries. Now we’re excited to reveal even more information on these markers, and what they represent from within the Moments:

    The Red Quill marker will appear on the thumbnail of each Moment that contains exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling, so you’ll never miss discovering these informative entries.

    The Challenge marker lets you know that the Moment contains a challenge, such as ‘de-gnoming the garden’ or ‘recapturing the Cornish pixies’.

    Make sure you have your sound turned on when you see this Speaker marker – it means a snippet from the digital audio books will be played within the Moment.


    These new features coming to Pottermore.com alongside the final chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, are designed to intuitively help you navigate the Moments, and effortlessly discover and re-visit all that Pottermore.com has to offer.

    We’re excited to reveal that when the concluding chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban are released on Pottermore.com there will be a brand new Homepage waiting for you to discover.

    The Signed-in Homepage includes a new way to follow the Moments of Harry’s story (the Story Navigator) and a new Map featuring areas where you can find and access all of the activities you regularly like to take part in, such as brewing potions, challenging students to duels, or shopping in Diagon Alley.



    Exploring Harry’s story

    To explore Harry’s story you’ll use the new Story Navigator, which we explained here on the Insider previously. You can scroll through the available books on Pottermore.com, browse through thumbnails of the Moments, and click on the ones you want to explore in full.



    Enjoying your own journey

    A new Map features all the locations and activities from Hogwarts and beyond that you currently enjoy as part of your own journey. To access them you’ll simply need to click on your desired location on the Map. As Pottermore.com evolves we will be adding even more locations and activities to the Map for you to discover and enjoy.

    The shops in Diagon Alley and locations from Hogwarts, such as your common room and the Great Hall, will now be accessed from the new Map. This image shows just part of your new Homepage – you’ll need to sign in to Pottermore.com to see the full effect.


    Your profile summary 

    You will be able to access all of your locations and activities from the Map, so the new slim-line Top Bar will display a summary of your profile and your recent activity. As you collect items from the Moments you will see them being added to your Trunk in real time, and the most recent Badge you have collected will appear here along with your Owl Notifications and your House Crest (once you’ve been through the Sorting Ceremony).



    Updates, information and suggestions for you 

    To the right-hand side of your screen you’ll find the new Side Bar containing updates and information so you don’t miss out on anything new.  When you’re exploring a Moment from Harry’s story the Side Bar will house the ‘Read About’ content as well as a new ‘Related Moments’ feature, which will showcase thumbnails of Moments that include similar characters, locations or themes to the Moment you are currently exploring. Combined with the new commenting features, this will provide you with even more opportunity to locate and discuss your favourite things about the Harry Potter series.



    The new Homepage may be difficult to imagine fully without being able to sign in and explore it for yourself, but rest assured the wait is almost over.   Once the concluding chapters are released on Pottermore.com, there will be on-screen guidance to help familiarise you with the new Homepage.

    As Pottermore.com grows we will continue to evolve the site to provide the best possible experience for all those who want to enjoy this unique gift from J.K. Rowling.

    Alongside the release of the concluding chapters of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, we have also introduced some new features designed to help you intuitively navigate your way around Pottermore.com, and effortlessly discover and re-visit everything that the entirely free interactive website from J.K. Rowling has to offer.

    We’ve summarised here the main new features, and the difference they will make to your journey through Pottermore.com and your interaction with the rest of the Pottermore community.

    A new Signed-in Homepage

    There is a brand new Homepage for you to discover on Pottermore.com. The Homepage now includes a new way to follow the Moments of Harry’s story (the Story Navigator) and a new Map featuring areas where you can find and access all of the activities you regularly like to take part in, such as brewing potions, challenging students to duels or shopping in Diagon Alley.



    The Story Navigator – Harry’s story
      On Pottermore.com, Harry Potter’s story is depicted through a series of interactive illustrated Moments. With the continued addition of more Moments we wanted to create an easier way for you to browse through them all, and to find and re-visit your favourites. The new Story Navigator enables you to browse easily through thumbnails of all the available Moments on Pottermore.com. Moments that you haven’t yet visited appear on the Story Navigator as black and white thumbnails, whilst those you’ve already explored are shown as colour thumbnails.





      The Map – your journey

      The Map features all the locations and activities from Hogwarts and beyond that you currently enjoy as part of your own journey. To access them, simply click on your desired location on the Map. As Pottermore.com evolves, we’ll be adding even more locations and activities to the Map for you to discover and enjoy.



      The Top Bar
        The new slim-line Top Bar displays a summary of your profile and your recent activity. As you collect items from the Moments you will see them being added to your trunk in real time, and the most recent Badge you have collected will appear here along with your Owl Notifications and your House Crest (once you’ve been through the Sorting Ceremony).



        The Side Bar

        To the right-hand side of your screen the new Side Bar contains updates and information so you don’t
        miss out on anything new. When you’re exploring a Moment from Harry’s story the Side Bar will house the ‘Read About’ content as well as a new ‘Related Moments’ feature, which will showcase thumbnails of Moments that include similar characters, locations or themes to the Moment you are currently exploring.



        Exploring Moments

        The Discovery Bar
          If you’re worried that you may have overlooked a hidden Galleon or Potions ingredient, or even that you’ve missed one of the exclusive entries by J.K. Rowling, the new Discovery Bar displayed along the bottom of each Moment thumbnail means you will now be sure whether you’ve explored each Moment in full, or whether you still have more to discover.

          Moment Markers
            New Markers against the thumbnails of the Moments show you where to find J.K. Rowling‘s new writing and other interesting discoveries:

            The Red Quill Marker will appear on the thumbnail of each Moment that contains exclusive new writing from J.K. Rowling, so you’ll never miss any of these insightful entries.

            The Challenge Marker lets you know that the Moment contains a challenge, such as ‘de-gnoming the garden’ or ‘recapturing the Cornish pixies’.

            Make sure you have your sound turned on when you see this Speaker Marker – it means a snippet from the digital audio books will be played within the Moment.


            Commenting beneath individual Moments and the new Book Pages

            Each of the seven books now features a Book Page with a synopsis of the story, and if you enjoy sharing your thoughts with the Pottermore community you can now read and share comments on each book, each chapter, each entry from J.K. Rowling and even on every single Moment, as you go along.



            A new Signed-out Homepage

            When you are signed out, your Pottermore.com Homepage will display the latest community news and highlight new pieces of content you might not have yet discovered.

            For those arriving for the first time, the new Signed-out Homepage offers a tantalizing glimpse into the world of Pottermore.com, with the chance to ‘Try a Moment’, ‘Cast a spell’ and ‘Brew a potion’, to discover more about what Pottermore.com has to offer before signing up.



            As Pottermore.com grows we will continue to evolve the site, to provide the best possible experience for all those who want to enjoy this unique gift from J.K. Rowling.

            Parallèlement à la mise en ligne des derniers chapitres de Harry Potter et le Prisonnier d’Azkaban, nous avons également ajouté à Pottermore de nouvelles caractéristiques pour te permettre de naviguer de manière plus intuitive. Grâce à ces nouveautés, tu peux désormais découvrir et retrouver beaucoup plus facilement tous les contenus du site interactif gratuit mis à ta disposition par J.K. Rowling.

            Voici un petit récapitulatif des principales nouveautés du site et des différentes manières dont tu peux désormais explorer Pottermore.com et interagir avec les autres membres de la communauté Pottermore:

            Ta nouvelle page d’accueil après connexion


            Pottermore.com possède désormais une nouvelle page d’accueil. Cette page te permet de retracer les différents Moments de l’histoire de Harry d’une nouvelle manière grâce au « navigateur de narration » et contient également une nouvelle « carte » te permettant d’accéder facilement à toutes les activités auxquelles tu aimes te livrer : préparation de potions, duels de sorciers, achats sur le Chemin de Traverse.


            Le navigateur de narration : l'histoire de Harry

            Pottermore.com te permet de retracer l’histoire de Harry Potter à travers une série de Moments interactifs richement illustrés. Comme il nous reste encore de nombreux Moments à ajouter, nous voulions simplifier la manière dont tu explores chaque Moment pour t’aider à trouver facilement tout ce que tu cherches. Ce nouveau « navigateur de narration » te permet de parcourir aisément tous les Moments disponibles sur Pottermore.com sous forme de mini-images.




            Les Moments que tu n’as pas encore explorés s’afficheront sous forme de mini-images en noir et blanc sur ton navigateur de narration, tandis que ceux que tu auras déjà explorés seront en couleur.


            Ta carte : ton aventure

            Ta carte affiche tous les lieux que tu peux explorer et toutes les activités que tu peux pratiquer à Poudlard et au-delà dans le cadre de ton aventure Pottermore. Pour accéder à un lieu ou à une activité donnée, clique tout simplement sur l’emplacement indiqué par ta carte. À mesure que Pottermore.com évoluera, nous ajouterons de nouveaux lieux et de nouvelles activités à découvrir sur le site.



            La barre supérieure




            Cette nouvelle barre supérieure très fine t’offre un récapitulatif de ton profil et de tes dernières activités. Lorsque tu collectionneras un objet dans un Moment, tu le verras s’ajouter, en temps réel, à ta malle. Le dernier badge qui t'aura été décerné apparaîtra également ici, avec les messages de ton hibou et le blason de ta maison (que tu découvriras après avoir participé à la Cérémonie de la Répartition). 

            La barre latérale
             

            Une nouvelle barre latérale apparaît désormais sur le côté droit de ton écran pour te tenir au courant de toutes les dernières actualités et informations de Pottermore.

            Cette barre latérale contient des informations à lire sur le Moment que tu es en train d’explorer ainsi qu'une nouvelle fonctionnalité appelée « Moments similaires ». Celle-ci te montre de mini-images des Moments où tu trouveras des personnages, des lieux ou des thèmes similaires à celui que tu explores.






            Exploration des Moments

            La barre de découverte


            Cette nouvelle barre de « découverte » affichée au bas de chaque Moment te permet de vérifier que tu n’as pas oublié de récupérer un Gallion ou un ingrédient à potion ou de lire un texte inédit écrit par J.K. Rowling dans ce Moment. Tu pourras ainsi savoir à tout moment si tu as tout trouvé ou s’il te reste encore des choses à découvrir.








            Les indicateurs de Moment

            De nouveaux « indicateurs » apparaissent désormais à côté des mini-images des Moments pour te montrer où trouver les nouveaux textes inédits de J.K. Rowling et faire d’autres passionnantes découvertes :



            L'indicateur « Plume rouge » apparaît sur la mini-image d’un Moment qui renferme un nouveau texte inédit de J.K. Rowling pour t’aider à trouver ces passionnantes informations.

            L’indicateur de « Défi » te montre qu’un Moment contient un défi, comme par exemple le « dégnomage du jardin des Weasley » ou la « Capture des lutins de Cornouailles ».

            L’indicateur de « Son » signfie que tu peux écouter un extrait du livre audio numérique correspondant au Moment qu’il accompagne. Vérifie que ton haut-parleur est bien allumé chaque fois que tu l’apercevras.

            Es gibt jetzt nicht nur die abschließenden Kapitel von Harry Potter und der Gefangene von Askaban zu erkunden, sondern wir haben auch einige neue Funktionen entwickelt, die Dir helfen sollen, problemlos und ganz intuitiv durch Pottermore.com zu navigieren, so dass Du mühelos alles entdecken und wieder besuchen kannst, was die vollkommen kostenlose Website von J.K. Rowling zu bieten hat.
            Wir haben hier die Hauptfunktionen zusammengefasst, die Deine Reise durch Pottermore.com und Deine Kommunikation mit dem Rest der Pottermore Gemeinschaft verbessern werden.

            Eine neue Angemeldet-Homepage


            Es gibt nun eine komplett neue Homepage für Dich auf Pottermore.com zu entdecken, über die Du die Momente in Harrys Geschichte auf ganz neue Weise besuchen (mithilfe des Geschichten-Navigators) kannst. Es gibt dort eine neue Karte, die die Stellen anzeigt, über die Du zu all jenen Aktivitäten gelangst, an denen Du gern regelmäßig teilnimmst, wie zum Beispiel Zaubertränke brauen, andere Schüler zu Duellen herausfordern oder in der Winkelgasse einkaufen gehen.
             

            Der Geschichten-Navigator - Harrys Geschichte

            Harry Potters Geschichte wird auf Pottermore.com mithilfe einer Reihe interaktiver illustrierter Momente erzählt. Nachdem wir laufend neue Momente hinzufügen, wollten wir die Website so gestalten, dass es für Dich einfacher ist, durch sie zu navigieren, alle Momente zu finden und Deine Lieblingsmomente erneut zu besuchen. Dank des Geschichten-Navigators kannst Du nun mühelos die Vorschauen oder Thumbnails aller auf Pottermore.com verfügbaren Momente durchsehen.
             



            Momente, die Du noch nicht besucht hast, werden auf dem Geschichten-Navigator als schwarz-weiße Thumbnails erscheinen, während all jene, die Du bereits besucht hast, in Farbe angezeigt sind.

            Die Karte - Deine Reise


            Die Karte zeigt alle Orte und Aktivitäten in und um Hogwarts an, die Du derzeit als Teil Deiner eigenen Reise erleben kannst. Zu ihnen gelangst Du, indem Du ganz einfach den gewünschten Ort auf der Karte anklickst. Je mehr sich Pottermore.com weiter entwickelt umso mehr Orte und Aktivitäten werden wir zur Karte hinzufügen, damit Du noch mehr entdecken und mehr Spaß haben kannst.


            Die obere Leiste

            Die neue schmale obere Leiste zeigt eine Zusammenfassung Deines Profils und Deiner jüngsten Aktivitäten. Du kannst in Echtzeit sehen wie Gegenstände, die Du in den Momenten sammelst, in Deine Truhe gelegt werden und auch das neueste Abzeichen, das Du gefunden hast, wird zusammen mit Deinen Eulen-Nachrichten und Deinem Hauswappen (nachdem Du die Zuordnungszeremonie hinter Dir hast) auf dieser Leiste angezeigt.




            Die seitliche Leiste

            Auf der rechten Seite Deines Bildschirms zeigt die neue seitliche Leiste Updates und Informationen, damit Du keine aktuellen Neuigkeiten verpasst.

            Während Du einen Moment in Harrys Geschichte erkundest, findest Du in dieser seitlichen Leiste die „Lies Über“ Inhalte sowie die neue Funktion „Damit verbundene Momente“, in der mithilfe von Thumbnails jene Momente aufgelistet werden, die ähnliche Figuren, Orte oder Themen enthalten, wie der Moment, in dem Du Dich gerade befindest.


            Momente erforschen
             

            Die Entdeckungs-Leiste

            Du brauchst Dir keine Sorgen mehr zu machen, dass Du eine versteckte Galleone, eine Zaubertrank-Zutat oder gar einen der exklusiven Texte von J.K. Rowling übersehen haben könntest, denn die neue Entdeckungs-Leiste unterhalb jedes Moment-Thumbnails zeigt an, ob Du die einzelnen Momente komplett erforscht hast, oder ob es noch mehr zu entdecken gibt. 



            Moment-Markierungen

             
            Neue Markierungen an den Thumbnails der einzelnen Momente zeigen Dir, wo Du neue Texte von J.K. Rowling sowie andere interessante Entdeckungen finden kannst:
             

            Der rote Federkiel erscheint auf dem Thumbnail eines jeden Moments, der exklusives neues Material von J.K. Rowling enthält, damit Du keinen dieser aufschlussreichen Texte übersiehst.

            Das Herausforderungs-Zeichen zeigt an, dass ein Moment eine Herausforderung enthält, wie zum Beispiel „den Garten entgnomen“ oder „Wichtel aus Cornwall wieder einfangen“.

            Wenn Du dieses Lautsprecher-Zeichen siehst, vergewissere Dich, dass der Ton eingeschaltet ist, denn das Zeichen bedeutet, dass in diesem Moment Ausschnitte aus den digitalen Hörbüchern gespielt werden.


            Kommentare unterhalb der einzelnen Momente und die neuen Buchseiten


            Für ein jedes der sieben Bücher gibt es nun eine Buchseite mit einer Zusammenfassung der jeweiligen Geschichte. Und wenn Du der Pottermore Gemeinschaft gerne Deine Gedanken und Ideen mitteilen möchtest, kannst Du ab sofort während Deiner Reise durch die Geschichte Kommentare zu jedem Buch, jedem Kapitel, jedem Eintrag von J.K. Rowling und sogar zu jedem einzelnen Moment hinterlassen oder die Kommentare anderer lesen.




            Eine neue Abgemeldet-Homepage 


            Wenn Du abgemeldet bist, wird Deine Pottermore.com Homepage die neuesten Gemeinschaftsnachrichten anzeigen sowie Inhalte, die Du vielleicht noch nicht entdeckt hast.

            Neue Besucher erhalten auf dieser neuen Abgemeldet-Homepage einen verlockenden Einblick in die Welt von Pottermore.com und können hier „einen Moment testen“, „einen Zauber ausführen“ und „einen Zaubertrank brauen“, damit sie sehen können, was Pottermore.com zu bieten hat, bevor sie sich registrieren.

Rowling.

            A continuación hemos preparado un resumen de las nuevas características y de los cambios que suponen para tu viaje a través de Pottermore.com y tu forma de interactuar con el resto de la comunidad Pottermore.

            Una nueva Página de Inicio de Conexión


            En Pottermore.com podrás descubrir una Página de Inicio totalmente nueva. Ahora la Página de Inicio te ofrece una nueva forma de seguir los Momentos de la historia de Harry (el Navegador de Historia) y un nuevo mapa con áreas desde las que podrás acceder a todas las actividades en las que disfrutas participando regularmente, como preparar pociones, retar a otros estudiantes a duelos o comprar en el Callejón Diagon.
             

            El Navegador de Historia – la historia de Harry

            Pottermore.com ilustra la historia de Harry a través de una serie de Momentos ilustrados. Al ir añadiendo más Momentos, queríamos facilitarte el proceso de navegar a través de todos ellos, además de ayudarte a encontrar y volver a visitar tus favoritos. El nuevo Navegador de Historia te permite navegar con facilidad a través de las imágenes en miniatura de todos los Momentos disponibles de Pottermore.com.


            Los Momentos que aún no has visitado aparecerán en el Navegador de Historia como imágenes en miniatura en blanco y negro, mientras que los que ya has visitado aparecerán como imágenes en miniatura en color.






            El Mapa – tu viaje

            En el mapa aparecen todos los lugares y actividades de Hogwarts y más allá que ya has disfrutado durante tu aventura. Para acceder a ellos, simplemente haz clic en el lugar deseado del mapa. Según vaya evolucionando Pottermore.com, iremos añadiendo más lugares y actividades al mapa para que puedas ir descubriéndolos y disfrutándolos.





            La Barra Superior
             
            En la nueva y estilizada Barra Superior encontrarás un resumen de tu perfil y de tu actividad reciente. Según vas recogiendo artículos a través de los Momentos, los verás aparecer en tu baúl en tiempo real. La insignia más reciente que hayas adquirido aparecerá ahí junto con las notificaciones de las lechuzas y el blasón de tu casa (en cuanto hayas pasado por la Ceremonia de Selección).






            La Barra Lateral
             
            La nueva Barra Lateral situada en la parte derecha de tu pantalla contiene noticias e información para que no te pierdas nada nuevo.

            Cuando estés explorando un Momento de la historia de Harry, en la Barra Lateral aparecerá el contenido de “Lee Sobre” además de nuevos “Momentos Relacionados”, donde encontrarás imágenes en miniatura de Momentos con personajes, lugares o temas similares a los del Momento que estás explorando.





            Explorando Momentos
             

            La Barra de Descubrimiento

            Si te preocupa poder haber pasado de largo un galeón oculto o un ingrediente para pociones, o incluso piensas que podrías haberte perdido uno de los textos exclusivos de J.K. Rowling, la nueva Barra de Descubrimiento que aparece bajo todas las imágenes en miniatura de los Momentos te ayudará a asegurarte de haber explorado cada Momento en profundidad o a saber si todavía te quedan cosas por descubrir.




            Marcadores de Momentos

            Los nuevos marcadores junto a las imágenes en miniatura de los Momentos te muestran dónde puedes encontrar nuevos textos de J.K. Rowling y otros descubrimientos interesantes.


            El Marcador de la Pluma Roja aparecerá en todos los Momentos que contengan nuevos textos exclusivos de J.K. Rowling, para que nunca te vuelvas a perder estas interesantes entradas. 

            El Marcador de Retos te informa de qué Momentos contienen un reto, cómo “desgnomizar el jardín” o “volver a capturar a los duendes de Cornualles”.

            Asegúrate de que tienes el sonido habilitado cuando veas este Marcador de Sonido – quiere decir que en el Momento podrás oír un extracto de los audiolibros digitales. 


            Comentarios en los Momentos individuales y las nuevas Páginas del Libro

             
            Los siete libros contienen ahora una Página del Libro con una sinopsis de la historia. Si deseas compartir tus opiniones con la comunidad de Pottermore, ahora, según vas avanzando, ya puedes leer y compartir comentarios sobre cada libro, cada capítulo, cada entrada de J.K. Rowling e incluso sobre cada Momento individual.





            Una nueva Página de Inicio de Desconexión

            Cuando hayas salido de tu cuenta, en tu Página de Inicio de Pottermore.com aparecerán las últimas noticias de la comunidad y resaltará contenidos que puede que aún no hayas descubierto.


            A los que llegan a ella por primera vez, la nueva Página de Inicio de Desconexión les tentará dejándoles entrever un pedacito del mundo de Pottermore.com, con la oportunidad de “Probar un Momento”, “Hacer un Hechizo” y “Preparar una Poción” para saber más sobre lo que les ofrece Pottermore.com antes de registrarse.
