The Pottermore Insider updated today with a post on their beta updates page.
In the post, they address the new changes to Potions and about making Pottermore better.
Following the feedback you gave us in the Pottermore Beta survey, we’ve shortened brewing times and tweaked cauldron speeds to make brewing potions even more fun.
Looks like taking the survey really paid off! At least we know they are taking what we said in the survey into consideration.
They continued on and again asked for users to log in to Pottermore and use the features. They also stated that are monitoring the site and will be making “further changes” as the Beta continues. Though, there was no mention of Wizard Dueling at all! Shocked? We are!
The Pottermore Insider continued their showcase on user art today with illustrations from chapter four, The Keeper of Keys. All of the art highlighted were of Hagrid, as he plays a huge part in chapter four and those that follow.
Check out all of the featured art by clicking here. We’ll be posting chapter five’s selection as soon as it is posted.
The Pottermore site updates page posted that starting on this Saturday, December 3 at 8:30 am (GMT) the site will be offline. They stated that the site would be offline for at least a week (Dec. 10) to do maintenance work behind-the-scenes. The post didn’t really specify what they were specifically going to do, though it’s not the first time we have seen this message before. Much of the work will be technical, so there will not be obvious changes, but they are asking that users come back to the site once it is back online.
In a post on the Pottermore Insider, Pottermore is now back online after a three day maintenance window.
The updates we’ve made over the past few days have mainly involved replacing hardware, so while you won’t see any obvious changes on the site itself, there has been a lot of work undertaken to help make the site run more smoothly.
Also in the post, it was explained that the Pottermore beta survey will be taken down on November 7, 2011. If you haven’t completed it yet, you can here.
