Runi: So I think we both agree that a contest like this ruins the game a bit right?
Lilys: Definitely, more than ruins the game because I doubt there was ever much of a 'gaming' element to Pottermore. I think the greatest insult to users is and will be that it undermines all other hard work that they've put in under the past 4 months.

Runi: Well that's another discussion entirely but we'll probably circle back in a bit...so Pottermore as game? I think it barely qualifies
