TL;DR - WizardingWorld Updates - Update 1 - App, Sorting Quiz and Current Issues. Dated: 02/10/2019. Hey everyone! You're probably fed up of seeing my name across most of the forums, however, I thought I'd open this one up before the move expands globally. I'll also keep my thoughts and updates on this to this thread from now on. As you're all aware, Pottermore recently moved to WizardingWorld.com. This had brought an official WizardingWorld app, which is on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Currently this app seems to be available only in Great Britian, however, there is an extension for anyone wanting to do the new sorting quiz. It will only be the reimagined version and from what I understand, will not affect you taking it officially on the app. This can be found on the WizardingWorld Twitter, or here. I had to type the link out so if it doesn't work please let me know, or you can follow this link to the Tweet that has the link. I can hear questions about the sorting quiz, so first I'll answer those. Do I have to take the sorting quiz? Absolutely not. If you use your Pottermore credentials, your passport will have your house, wand and Patronus saved. You don't have to take the quiz if you don't want to. Will the sorting hat sort me into a different house? Maybe! My house is Slytherin and I got sorted into Ravenclaw. But what if I want to stay in my house? That's completely fine. On the first taking of this quiz, you get the choice to move to your new house, or stay in your current house. Like Harry tells Albus Severus, "the sorting hat takes your choice into account." Can I take the quiz more than once? Yes! But only after the first time do you get the choice to change your house. The hat will not change its mind. Your house won't change once you've decided to stay or switch houses. How does it work? On the app you have the option of having sound on or using subtitles. You can also use selfie mode to, I assume, have the hat on your head. Some of the questions require you to move or tilt the device you're using, so be prepared for that. I'd assume for the website extension that it works similarly to before, where you use arrows to scroll between the different answers. How many questions are there? There are 8 questions that I answered. I'd assume they're the same set questions, but as I recall for the Patronus quiz, there were different questions for different attempts. Are there any differences from Pottermore's original quiz? I'm sure there are, but my memory is flaky. The last time I took the Pottermore quiz was when I was 15/16. And I hardly remember what I did three days ago. I think there's just a little bit more variety on one of the questions, and updated animations. With the introduction of the new app, as with any app or game at launch, there are a few bugs and kinks that will need to be ironed out. The ones I found can be ironed out with a few updates. Currently here are some that I, or others have experienced. Crashing - The app has crashed a few times after I've left certain sections. I found after a few attempts and a little patience it seemed to sort itself out. Unresponsiveness - I tried to enable camera in app and it just didn't respond. Whether it was slow or just didn't process the tap or the holding of the button is something I don't know. It could be a code thing, but this was the only instance on my first test that I found to be unresponsive. Slowness - It wasn't horribly bad with me, but with any new app it won't run smoothly, or even quickly. Just some patience and things should eventually load. This is definitely something I see being fixed in an update. Having to log into the app every time - Okay, so I've exited the app four times and three of the four I had to log back in. On the fourth opening it remembered me. It was just annoying, especially when I had to exit, give the app permissions and then go back into it and retype my email and password. I'll keep an eye on it but for the time being I think I'm just going to have to keep logging in. Having to redownload content - Where I'd left the Sorting Hat quiz a couple of times to try and get the camera to work, I had to download the quiz each time. The third time was a lot quicker than the first or second, but it shouldn't be a thing that needs downloading multiple times. Not letting you choose - This hasn't happened to me, but I've seen quite a few people sign in with their Pottermore account, take the test, then forcing them to be sorted into their new houses. They've been disappointed because they know in their heart they are their current house, not their new house. I'll keep an eye on this one, but it definitely needs to be fixed. EDIT - My friend used a different email and it seemed to fix itself and give her her correct house. I'm not sure if this will work for everyone else, but I thought I'd throw this out as a suggestion to try. I haven't explored the app in its entirety yet, but from what I have seen so far, it does seem like a lot of the information from Pottermore is already on the app. Which means its probably already on the site. I'll have a more in depth look later. I just wanted to get this post to everyone, so that any questions could be answered. Let us know if you have any questions! If you've taken the quiz did you get sorted into a different house? Did you stay in your current house or change? Were you happy with the new house? Also, please let me know if I've missed important information. This is my first time doing a post like this. If you like this sort of update post I'll happily do more.

For Download Links: http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/harry-potter-adventure-map-3347878/ Screen Shots: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ): By The Floo Network (Planet Minecraft) Hello, everyone! I would like to help everyone who has a question, but I don't have time to respond to you all. Since I am seeing a lot of the same questions asked, I'll try to answer those here: 1. The map doesn't show up when I download it. This is because you have extracted the world folder into a new folder. The folder in your saves folder should be called "By The Floo Network". If it is called "Harry Potter in Minecraft" instead, simply open this folder, and drag the folder inside out into the saves folder. 2. What is the Resource pack and the shader pack? I have made the Resource pack myself, and it's custom built for the map. If can be downloaded from the Planet Minecraft link in the description. The Shader is Sildur's Vibrant Shaders. 3. How do I install the map? There is a guide if you click the link in the description, which explains how to install it. 4. The book for teleporting around doesn't show up in my inventory. The book only shows up, if you are playing in the version 1.12 or later. The mechanism for giving the player the book in not compatible with 1.11.2 or older updates. 5. Is there any mods required: No. The map has been built and functions in vanilla Minecraft. 6. Does the map cost money? No. The map is free, though you can choose to donate. 7. Is it an adventure map with quests? Not yet, but I am currently working on an expanded version of the map, with quests, as well as new locations, (The rest of the ministry of magic, post-battle Hogwarts and much more!) It will also add some improvements to the locations already built 8. How long did it take to build the map, and how many people worked on it? We are five teenagers, four of us from Denmark and one from America, who've worked on the map on and off over a period of several years. The vast majority of the map was however built by just one person, with the rest helping with some builds and some of the technical aspects of the project.

Dumbledore posted a topic in The Daily Prophet: News DiscussionThe new shop is the creation of couple Wendy and Kenny McDermott, who are hoping to put Glasgow on the Harry Potter Tourist Map. The owners revealed the shop will be called Clause 73 as a nod to the fact that Scotland is apparently “most frequent breaker of the clause that ensures the secrecy of magical creatures”. From their crowd funding page: 20 Years ago in a cafe in Edinburgh J.K. Rowling began writing the story of a young wizard who would change the world. Who knew those books would go on to do just that, and bring people around the world closer together. There's nothing more magical than being a Harry Potter fan and as a team of devoted Potter fans we can't wait to share this truly special experience with you! We are opening a new venture in a Top Secret location in the heart of Glasgow, called Clause 73 (Concealing Magical Creatures since 1750). Scotland has lots of connections to Harry Potter and we have found a few directly linked to Glasgow. It is our aim to put Glasgow on the Harry PotterTourist Map. We have identifed the ideal location for premises and are currently hard at work to make sure it will be packed to the brim with officially licensed Harry Potter merchandise as well as Harry Potter Inspired furniture and gifts. We need to raise funds to make this happen and we need your help. We are asking the amazing Harry Potter family aceoss Scotland to get involved, in return we are offering some awesome perks for our backers (see rewards) We look forward to having you join us as we write the next chapter of Glasgows magical history! A crowdfunding scheme has been launched to fund the opening of Clause 73 and the sourcing of its mystical products. Since launching the campaign the couple have managed to raise £1,300 of their £20,000 target. To support Wendy & Kenny http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/clause-73/?utm_source=crowdfunder&utm_medium=dashboardfacebookblock&utm_content=shareonfacebook&utm_campaign=marketing We wish them the best and hope to visit once it's open to the public!
