Today Pottermore underwent an update resulting in many changes. Users are no longer able to leave comments, change their statuses, or upload drawings. While this may leave some users feeling a little disappointed, fans can be reassured that the changes are to ensure all users stay safe and are to make way for bigger things to come!
We have some plans afoot. We can’t tell you too much right now, but in preparation for developments to come, we’ve started to change a few things on our website. We’ll be keeping you posted in the coming months.
Other changes that have taken place include updates to the sidebar, which now provides you with a link to site updates. This will provide users with any new information on the site, taking the place of the Insider. Links to Pottermore’s “Guide to Potions Class” and “Guide to Duelling Club” can also be found in the improved sidebar.
As for when we will hear about the new, exciting things to come, Pottermore said,

Fans should also be pleased to know that J.K. Rowling is still working closely with Pottermore and was consulted on the changes. They stated that
On a day-to-day basis J.K. Rowling entrusts the running of Pottermore to a dedicated management team. However, she was consulted about these changes and of course supports the decision to keep pottermore.com a safe and secure environment for everyone.
Pottermore has also revealed that users can expect to see new chapters coming very soon and that reassuringly, once all Moments from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been released, it will not be the end for Pottermore! They said,
We’re not far away from releasing new Moments from Deathly Hallows for you to explore, along with more new writing by J.K. Rowling. As for what’s after that, it’s certainly not the end – in fact, far from it.
