I can confirm this.  Also the sorting hat result is purely random, even if you happen to get the exact same questions and answer them the exact same way, most of the time you will be sorted to a different house.  It's designed to 'appear' like a real personality test, but the results are random - likely to try and make sure all four houses are equally represented - although I'm sure many purposefully create alt accounts to get the house they want.

Really? Man that's a buzzkill. I thought it was legit sorting a bit. As fore the update itself... I thought it'd kind of be one big sprawling castle, not having to jump spaces for something like Charms class.

Ooh, the Ravenclaw place looks nice. I took some pictures of the Slytherin place so people can see. So far I've just yet to see the Gryffindor room.

The light in there sure is dramatic by that fireplace. xD

I finally created a Pottermore account. I'm stuck in chapter 5. There is a lock in the arrow to continue. What do I need to do? I'm using the phone to do this, because the website isn't working right in my computer for some reason.

Also, how the bloody Hell do you move the fakakta feather in the charms game!

I feel exhausted with all this crap not working right.

I'm wondering the same thing... :/ As for the feather, it's motion control. You have to tilt your controller.

Don't walk around. I know I fell off the map too. It takes quite a bit of time to load. Just wait for it. 


Thanks but I've been trying that.  I even sat in there for about half an hour just now and still nothing, cleared cache and tried again and even cleared cache a 2nd time from in the space.  No www spinning or hdd indicator going, all I get is the dark bubble room. 

 

The other spaces look nice and the sorting hat thing was kind of neat but again, they're pretty big spaces with nothing to do in them.  I also noticed you can only use proper House clothing in the Common rooms.  I previously purchased some Slytherin stuff before I was sorted and was unable to access them in the Hufflepuff room.

 

 I'm also extremely disappointed in the personal space.  It makes no sense to not even be able to chat locally in a personal space and unless you want to fork out 8 more bucks for furniture on top of the 6.49 for the space, you just have a house you can stand in and look out of the window.   I sent a tweet out to Pottermore and I'm about to hop on their forums about this too.  I understand the restrictions in public areas but enforcing them in personal spaces is just crossing the line.  Its also incredibly dark,  I had to use the flash on the camera to even see it has built in shelving some items on them.  It's a shame because the house actually looks kind of cool but its just pointless as it is.

Thanks Red Wesley on the feather info. Now I can't get past the 16th level in charms, because I have to be further in the Pottermore site, but I'm blocked by a locked arrow. I'm still stuck in chapter 5 in Diagon Alley.
