Hey Steve, unrelated to this, but I noticed a few mistake yesterday on the Lexicon among the Death Eaters.  You still have separate entries for "big blonde" (from Battle of the Tower) and Thorfinn Rowle, but in the cafe in DH Hermione confirms that Rowle (who is big and blonde) was at the Battle of the Tower. 

In said battle, the "big blonde" and "brutal-faced" DEs are two separate DEs (your page supposes they could be one and the same).  Book 7 implies that the brutal-faced one is Yaxley (he is described using similar language), but nothing was confirmed.

"Rita Skeeter has been taken unaccountably ill with what some are calling a jinx to the solar plexus." That's my Ginny! #QuidditchWorldCup

Apparently Rita Skeeter isn't even watching the match, just the VIPs. #QuidditchWorldCup

The REAL "new Harry Potter short story," and it doesn't involve Rita Skeeter http://goo.gl/07sXaS

I also liked the other background histories of Quirrell, Lupin, Lockhart, ... but Lupin and McGonagall are my favourites.

Mysteries about those Hogwarts letters. Why did #HarryPotter 's come early and who delivered them? http://goo.gl/pztRrz

Rowling possibly meant "in the year of his/her eleventh birthday", I mean, nearly 2 weeks or a month (2 months in the case of Minerva?) before the actual birthday? Perhaps she didn't mean "the day itself"? Concerning the delivery of the letters, I also think of Minerva, although she's too serious to make jokes with the letters. If I were Minerva or Mrs. Figg, I would deliver the letter directly to Harry while he's sitting nearby the window of his bedroom, ... But this could not be usefull for the plot. Perhaps it was Dumbledore himself who was playing the game with the Dursleys, to test how they would react, if they would twart Dumbledore's plans, ...

The time the US editors screwed up a #HarryPotter book http://goo.gl/ImiHYH
Most US edits of Harry Potter books just changed UK terms and phrases. The US editors did mess up on book six, however, and took it more seriously than fans realized.

I think, the sentence that was left in book 6 first should be edited out, because of the fact that doing what Dumbledore suggested should be contradictory to the philosophy of the order of the Phoenix. If the order starts to kill family members of the death eaters, they should reach the level of the death eaters. Remember what Sirius told the trio in book 4 (in the cave): Moody tried to capture death eaters and not to kill them; others became as worse in fighting the death eaters as the death eaters itself. Killing an oponent during a battle is something else than killing a family member of the oponent that is not participating in a battle. So, yees, I think the sentence should be edited out.

I don't see these seasonal changes and I also don't see a map, as a screen reader can't display visually effects. If there were some texts and info hidden behind these visual things, it would be handy if a screen reader user could reach this hidden info in another way.

Ron kissed Hermione on the cheek. Aw... Oh heck, now I'm not paying attention to the match either! #QuidditchWorldCup

#QuidditchWorldCup: I'm enjoying Rita Skeeter's commentary a lot! Chuckling over Luna's "Special Event Hats" #Pottermore

I'm curious about the snacks Luna was giving to her friends. But her event-hats are also fantastic. She seems loony, but in fact in her special way she's briliant.

I believe Steve is talking about Rita Skeeter's gossip column from the Daily Prophet.
