Unfortunately, the Chocolate Frog Cards are not a part of the features we have planned for the initial release. The images we currently use are subject to copyright by Warner Bros and we have not obtained permission to use them. But worry not, your cards will be safe and stored until we design our own set of images in future updates.

What about our personal trading cards?

We will not be able to accommodate for personal trading cards to be transferred as we're slowly reaching the maximum available server space allocated for our databases and files. The upside is that we will be launching a new personal trading card project soon, so everyone will have an opportunity to earn points and get creative. We are looking into publishing a detailed guide on what is going to be transferred over within the next few days.

This is certainly exciting!!

If you guys need illustrations, graphics, like plants for a greenhouse or owls or that sort of thing I would love to help. You can retain full rights to the images, I don't care. I went to school for Illustration and am very capable digitally. I can create spot illustrations like the ones they used on the initial Pottermore. If you want some samples or something just name it, send me a message through my email on HOL or b.v.delacroix@gmail and I am sure I can whip something up!

Again, so excited!

Will we keep our Pets? I hope so, because some of my pets go back to 2008. Will the Pet Shop and Owlery still be there?

Everyone will get to keep their pets. The Pet Shop will only re-open as part of a later update, along with Hogsmeade. The Owlery will no longer be there, but you would still be able to visit other people's profiles and feed their pets there.

Will the web address stay the same for the main page? I tend to keep the site open whenever possible. Also do we have a potential date for when the change-over will happen?

The web address will remain the same. We don’t have a definite date at this stage, but we’ll be keeping everyone posted.

Classes sometimes make use of discussion boards rather than the HOL forum. These discussion boards are currently found under 'Class Discussion' on a particular class's page. Other areas where discussion boards are currently found include the Art and Library Departments as well as the HOL Board page.

In a future update we plan on integrating a particular class's subforum from the main HOL forum with that class's page. The subforum would then be able to be accessed from both the HOL forum and the class page. We’ll likely be doing something similar for the Art and Library Departments.

I'm kind of excited and nervous. I look forward to seeing the changes. And new things. :)
