That's how I got stuck with "IceGold".Every other name they gave me had to do with Quidditch, which to me is the equivalent of having a username like "BBallChick17".
I sat there for a while though, trying to figure out if I could create my own.

Just got my final email and am starting now.Layout is a bit confusing, but that's mostly because everything is locked except "Friends", "Favorites", and "Trunk".
Edit: Oh this is kind of neat. You go through the story and as Harry starts his journey, so do you. (i.e. Getting your wand, getting sorted, etc.)I've found a few new things written by Rowling explaining why she did this or that in the story, which is fun.Something tells me this is geared at people quite a bit younger than I am.....OH WELL.If anyone wants to be friends on there, my name is IceGold27424.I don't really know how to do that yet...but for future reference.Especially if you're sorted into my house. ;)

I've been waiting for this forever! Just signed up and waiting for the email. Bummer about the username, all of my choices had numbers after them which seems a bit...1990s.

I've been wanded and sorted.Wand: Rowan, unicorn hair, surprisingly swishy.House: Slytherin
I was surprised to be sorted there, since I always identified with Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. But the description fits and...it's Snape's house.
I liked the questions. Unlike most sorting hat activities, none of the answers were obviously one house or the other.
Where's everyone else?

I agree- I did enjoy the not-so-obvious questions.
Ravenclaw's description welcome message was pretty cute and entertaining.
Overall, I'm pleased. ^^

Haha, yeah.The Slytherin welcome letter was pretty great too.
And from what I can tell we're winning as far as points are concerned?But just like the books, it seems to be going back and forth between Gryffindor and Slytherin.With Ravenclaw following closely behind.Poor Hufflepuff.
Also to be noted: Anyone who's been sorted has gotten to the part where you get to learn a lot more about McGonagall, right?I really love everything Rowling had to say about her, as well as the other red quill "new" stuff you find in every chapter.Can't wait to get to the later books.

Wand: Length: 12 3/4 in; Wood:Larch; Core: Phoenix Feather; Flexibility:Supple

In all, I think I did well during my beginning stages of Pottermore. Site seems interesting, hoping to make some house friends... and even non-house friends since I was wishing for another House.

I was a beta tester for Pottermore. I admit, I found it pretty boring, and I was SO excited for it. Hopefully it'll get better now that it's open to the public.

Two days...and now I'm bored with it. I was expecting that there would be more to do on the site. The potions and wizard dueling were interesting at first, but then it gets boring. Everyone uses the same spell and it isn't that challenging. The potions can be difficult but after doing it a few times, blowing up several cauldrons in the process, I find that it isn't that much fun. The interactive storybook was unique, but again, I expected more. I really liked reading Rowlings extra notes and finding items throughout the chapters. I hope they add more to the site because even if they added the interactive stories of all of the books, I would still find it boring. I would take my time going through them, but still... I hope they add some extra 'games' soon. Transfiguration would be interesting.

I guess I was kind of anticipating a 'virtual HP world', like an online HP video game where you can explore Hogwarts instead of just certain scenes. I'm not sure why I thought it was going to be like that. I still have my HP games for my playstation and PS2 :P so I could just play those.

I'm RoseCloak20493 ! I love my name (except for the numbers)... I think I got lucky.

Slytherin represent (so happy, I've always identified with Slytherin... *looks at custom Slytherin address labels, Slytherin pen, Slytherin iPhone case, Slytherin cardigan...)

Wand is Alder Wood, Phoenix Core, 12 3/4 inch and Unyielding.

It's a little boring after you've finished all there is to do but I have hopes that they'll keep adding and adding and yay can't wait for book two!!
I love guinea pigs and cats and Sgt. Frog.

I agree, Voxx. I'm kind of bummed there isn't more to do, I really wanted to explore my common room and maybe have some kind of chat feature with others in my house. A roleplaying feature would be awesome too. But it's all still Beta so I'm hoping it gets better eventually. Rowling is working on another book anyway so depending on how many decisions she has to make on the site and all, I can see it being a bit slow.

Also agree with everyone. It got boring. Also I don't know about anyone else but you can't get to any of the other books yet outside the first one. Real short trip

Yeah...the second book isn't out yet on the pottermore site. I'm not sure, is it available on the e-readers? I haven't downloaded them yet. It would be cool if you download them and you get more content and all that to explore on the site.
