I just checked it out, and yeah, there does seem to be some faint spirals on the page.

Eeek, getting very excited and making myself stay away from the spoilers.

Thanks! I'm having my own private little gif party.

It's getting light outside - almost 6 am here and I've been up all night. Too excited to sleep.

Only one more hour to go!

Re: Pottermore

I read the tweet, and it wasn't too specific but it does give some new information, the same person has now said that the information is embargoed so hopefully we won't see any more spoilers!

I'm still excited for the big reveal

Re: Pottermore

I just think it sort of is a hint of how the screen will break to reveal the content, you know what I mean? Like suddenly it will go into a spirally thing. That way.

yeah I think it's just the colors trying to get back to the original because a couple hours ago the edges turned black for me. So I don't think it's anything really, just the colors trying to readjust.

But of course we won't let a little thing like that get in the way of speculation! We're Harry Potter fans it's just what we do!

Edit; It's been a long time since I've seen 80 people viewing one thread!

I still think its how the site will suddenly become operational. I can almost see it visually spiralling onto itself and then revealing this awesome crazy *** thing. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

Exactly! You can't not read the HP books and not put a little speculation into everything!

Re: Pottermore

Just thought of something. Those two different owls, on the two ends of the page, it could mean its a sort of a registration thing where you have two opposing sides, and some sort of fan arguments/discussions etc? As in it could be a part of a bigger thing obviously, what I mean is that it could have two halves in it, two opposing halves and fans choose which side they belong to? Maybe.
(I am in full agreement with whoever previously said that I might have gone a tad crazy )

Re: Pottermore

Is the countdown a little slow? My desktop clock is saying it's 11:10 but the countdown says we still have 53 minutes. Do I need to put my computer right or is it them?

Well, that would be me but that's a good guess, however it doesn't exactly fit the pics leaked.

I refreshed at 59 minutes and it went down to 56, so my tip would be keep refreshing
