Archive Lexicon page Scrapbook

Archive Lexicon page This page was Apparated over from the old Lexicon website and has not been updated. It is included because the content is interesting and valuable, even in its current form. Scrapbook

The scrapbook stores and displays the Potterania extras you’ve collected from working the tricks around the site. It appears when you click on the brown book at the very top of the desktop.

This information is stored in a folder on your computer so that it “remembers” which ones you’ve collected. Using a different computer or an alternate address to the site allows you to see the challenges uncollected. This doesn’t show up in the Text Only version, because it isn’t interactive, allowing you to get the secrets.

There are 12, so far.
Four were available when the site launched, three more were added on September 16, 2004 and five more were added on March 9, 2006.

Click on the Scrapbook it opens. On the left hand page is a list of the extras you have collected.
Click on the name of the extra then read JKR’s explanation on the right-hand page.
Click on the red link to view the extra.

With the March 9, 2006 update came a new feature for viewing the items in the Scrapbook.  In the lower left of the screen is a zoom bar.  Click on the plus sign (+) to enlarge the image, click on the minus sign (-) to shrink. You can also drag the tab on the slide bar.   Click on the image and move it around to view different areas of the image. (With this new feature we will be reworking our transcripts, for sure!)
