About Us

The Pottermore Fan Forum was created in August 2011, following the announcement of the Pottermore Beta period and the Magical Quill Challenge. After not being able to find a public board to discuss Pottermore and everything surrounding it, John M and David M (ProfessorHagrid and CharmSpell199) bought the pottermoreforum.net domain and created the forum.

It didn't take long for members to flock to the forum. Soon, many people from all over the world joined and shared their enthusiasm about Pottermore. The forum grew exponentially and more staff was needed to handle it all.

Thus, the team of staff grew. All staff members are people who set themselves apart with their kindness, their willingness to assist others and their fantastic ideas to help improve the forum. Under their guidance, the forum has grown even larger and the community has become a large group of friends, and in some cases, a family.

The Pottermore Fan Forum is truly unique. You will be hard pressed to find a member here not willing to help another. Together, we truly provide an experience beyond what Pottermore itself can offer. And we do it all in a manner which allows members of all ages to be a part of it - just like Pottermore.

Since the forum was created, many permanent activites have found their place here. We have created a curriculum of Classes, which are just like the classes in the Harry Potter books, and which are accessible to anyone (and yes, they include homework!); there are exams to test your knowledge of the world of Harry Potter; we have a regular newsletter (the Quibbler); an online shop in both the US and Europe; and we are always working on many more features.

PFF - as the long name is lovingly abbreviated - always aims to improve itself. If you have any ideas, please don't hesitate to contact us!

As J. K. Rowling once said: "Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home." PFF's goal is to uphold this message. We are like Hogwarts: we're always here to welcome you home - or welcome you for the first time if you are just starting out. No matter who you are, were you live or how old you are, the Pottermore Fan Forum is here for you!

Helping PFF

The Pottermore Fan Forum is run by the admins and moderators, but anyone can help us ensure our future existence. The costs of maintaining the server can run very high and we try to remain ad-free.

So, what can you do to help?

Donate! That is the most direct and simple way of helping us. All donations go towards maintaining the server and improving the website. Any amount is welcome! If you wish to make a donation, you can do so with the below button.

If you would rather directly get something in return for your money, you can help us by purchasing any of the items in our store (US store - EU store). We have shirts and products of all sorts and sizes. If you would like to purchase something but you cannot find an item you like, please contact Rhynn and describe what you would like to purchase - perhaps we can create it for you!

Lastly, we offer a special type of forum account called a VIP Account. The VIP Lounge can be accessed through a monthly subscription of $5, or a yearly payment of $50. This special area of the site provides many interesting features to subscribers, including a monthly bonus of PFF points.

We would like to thank you in advance for your support of the Pottermore Fan Forum!
