Don’t post everything, but I think you should have the important information, like the facts/summaries, just as you did with the books, where you don’t post everything word by word but the facts are all in here.
I have been using the lexicon for years to check up little facts and things since it’s more convenient than going through the books. It would be a pity having to log onto pottermore and search there, since the format of pottermore isn’t made to find information quickly but rather to read and enjoy!

Gah, I can’t wait to get on Pottermore. Only a few more weeks, right?
In regards to posting the new Pottermore information – I definitely think you should hold off on it until everyone is on Pottermore, but I think a few weeks after it opens to the general public you should post most of the new info – just summarizing, not word for word – so the Lexicon can remain a complete resource. Because, let’s face it, what HP fan uses the Lexicon but won’t want to experience Pottermore for themselves?
As to your guides, I really wish they were available as something other than ebook. I am categorically opposed to the ebook format, and thus have no ereader on which to read them.

Anyone who doesn’t want to buy an ereader can download Kindle for PC software and use whatever computer you have to read ebooks. While I still love and prefer the feel of a real book, e-books sure do make searching for a specific quote or all the occurrences of a specific spell or other information much easier.
As for canon from Pottermore, I also vote for summaries of the key information after everyone has had a chance to get on line. As one who didn’t get to be a beta visitor, I can hardly wait for the experience but won’t feel the Lexicon is spoiling anything by posting the new info.
BTW, thanks for posting about new podcasts and thanks for the heads up about Olivander. Is the speculation about the meaning of his last name new? I missed it before somehow if it was always there. And, while I’m at it, any more clues for the treasure hunt of facts added from Pottermore? There’s so much on the Lexicon I hardly know where to start.

I’m on Pottermore, and it is very interesting. After several tries, I figured out how to brew a Boil Cure potion. Still having trouble trying to get into the Corridor with the Alohomora spell; apparently it requires nanosecond timing. :/

I’m not on Pottermore, unfortunately!! I’d like to get on it, but the Beta version is still open, so I can’t. I’m an italian student and I’m writing my degree thesis about HP world. I’d like to know something more about Pottermore, waiting for the moment I’ll can join it!! So can anybody help me, please?? Thanks!!

been googling what’s up in Pottermore (since for some unfortunate event I live in a country where Pottermore is not available). It’s good to know some leaked info from time to time.

I simply can’t wait to get on Pottermore. I missed it in October by just a day. Now I intend to keep checking every hour if I have to come April. I love hp-lexicon and can’t even imagine the kind of work that must have gone into it… but yeah, I too get stumped as to where to start from… It’s massiver than Hagrid!!!

I have just bought the Kindle edition of The Reader’s Guide to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – can’t wait to read it! I adore this site. Thank you.

I also can’t wait to log on into Pottermore.
