J.K.Rowling - Official SitePage editor: Belinda Hobbs
JK Rowling surprised fans everywhere on May 15, 2004, by opening a new website. Previously the site had consisted simply of a list of publishers for the Harry Potter books. The new site featured never-before-revealed information, incredible graphics, delightful Flash animations, and a lot of little tricks and surprises. Not surprisingly, the site was filled with the kind of tongue-in-cheek humor and sense of fun which mark everything Rowling creates.
Because the text on her site is written entirely by Rowling, the site is considered to be canon. She did not create the artwork, however, so things like the pictures of the Wizards of the Month aren't canon. The textual information is included in the Lexicon and indicated as being from Jo's site with the abbreviation (JKR).
When Steve started these pages they were intended
to serve only as a basic guide to Jo's website. It has since grown to become a comprehensive resource that we hope you find informative and useful.
Here's what the Lexicon's Guide offers:
Special analysis of several of the more interesting aspects of the site-
shows a locked door with a "Do not Disturb" sign; this door occasionally opens with new teaser information about the next book
links to various bits of false information which have been published about Rowling
provides links to various organizations and companies connected to Rowling
awards a different fan web site every few months
displays bits of additional information from Rowling's files about the books
allows entry of Student Identification number after taking the WOMBAT exam to retrieve score and certificate
