WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion


Is anyone else curious what this competition is? It's meant to kick off very soon, so I thought it'd be good to have a separate thread to discuss whatever WB is going to do with this hopefully awesome quest!

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion!

Apparently we need a million points to unlock exclusive footage?

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion!

After I select my country, the following page won't stop loading. Is anyone else having this issue?

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion!

Well, being someone who hates having to sign up on websites that are promoting something and having to give my personal information, I really dislike that you have to join and give your name and email and other stuff just to do it. (for the record, I don't mind giving this information when it comes to joining forums, of course) But to have to give up my information so someone can market something to me....blah.

I just tried to make an account (not with my real name) and it said I couldn't register at this time. Uh, ok then! Sounds like they may have some glitches to work out.

Editing again because I managed to get in...this site is ridiculous! I think they figured on more people wanting to spend their day downloading voldemort wall paper for five points than actually will be bothered. I can't get the game to work and it looks like it's going to require a TON of people to do these silly activities before whatever video "reward" they have to be unlocked. As of right now only about 9000 points have been earned.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I'm confused, has it started? I signed up to be notified by email when it did and haven't heard anything, and when I go on it I just get the same page telling me to enter my email to be notified when it starts. But then the countdown says it's here.

It's not very well done. Snitchseeker has this link: http://www.harrypotterthequest.com That should take you to a sign in page. I don't know why WB doesn't have it linked from the /questforthehallows site. Bad planning on their part! (and probably explains why its taking so long for the points to be earned to open up the first video on the site).

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I read on the Deathy Hallows Part 2 movie thread that the website to actually sign up for it is somewhere else, does anyone have the link to it? Because the link in the original post just takes me to a page where I can sign up to find out when it's started

ETA: ah, AnotherD has just put it up, thanks

Brilliant thank you! Does seem a bit messy how its all been done I'm on that page now but can't do anything, there's just a HP7 logo in the middle of the screen, can see all the stuff behind it but can't click on anything. I'm hope it'll be worth all this effort waiting around when I finally get something to happen

The site seems a little slow loading content, I had a few things take forever and had to refresh.

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

It's won't accept my email address. It says it's invalid, when, in reality, it's working perfectly well. Confused.

It said mine was invalid too then I tried a gmail address that I don't use much and it worked

So we don't get anything until a million points?! That's very hard when you only get about 10 points each video etc...

I know! This is nuts.

I sure hope this isn't how they reveal the trailer. Seeing as this site has been live for half a day and we still haven't broken 100k points towards the million needed to open some video (that's probably already on one of the DVDs) how long until people get bored of getting 5 or 10 points and move on?

Wait, I know what the million points thing is - it's EVERYONE's points, so everyone is aiming together for the million points

currently it's around 35,000!!!

So everyone, tell everyone about the quest and ask them to get as many points as they can!!!

I know it's a community thing...but it is still going to take forever (especially since there is confusion about the website in the first place, and as someone mentioned here they never got an email after signing up)

I didn't notice it

Yeah, we need to inform people of these things

Edit: I expect a large increase in numbers when Mugglenet reports the news. Why do they have to be so slow?

Edit 2: Is anyone else having issues with the Motorbike Escape game? It keeps saying I need some unity player even after I've downloaded it...

And how are we meant to get more than 190 points? Someone already has over 1000 points!! I've collected everything but that game now.... I suppose by sharing?

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

I had a lot of problems with the motorbike game. It finally ended up loading, but it took several attempts.

I think sharing every thing on FB/Twitter is probably how people have such high points. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to annoy every person I know on FB by sharing every single one of those wallpaper downloads!

Re: WB's Quest for the Hallows Promotion

Anyone else having problems getting on to it at all? I still have the HP7 logo in the middle of the screen with everything in the background unclickable, there's an error sign in the bottom of my browser too.
