I give up. I do, I do, I do.

I've been trying to find it all day.

WHERE IS THAT POLL?

The one on jkrowling's site? I've used the text only and the pretty one and it doesn't help.

ok, so it isn't jsut me!

You need to use the pretty Flash website. Go to the main desktop page and click on the paperclip area, to go to her FAQs. Then you have to click on one of the FAQ categories, which look like envelopes that appear on the edges of the screen - questions about the books, for example. A little window will pop up, and you'll see a table of contents to the left side of the window, which expands when you roll your mouse over it. There you'll see the option for the poll question.

Yeah, it's confusing.

Ah. I didn't see that little piece of paper. Okay. Voted.

Thank you!



What's the poll and what's the link? (I don't frequent the site.)

JK Rowling periodically posts a poll on her website (www.jkrowling.com), to vote for something to be added to her faq.

It's a fun website, too.



Thanks! I didn't find the poll, but I had a great time reading the FAQs and answers!

The poll is not available in the text version. It's on the flashy html (confusing) version.

If you click on the FAQ section (paper clips near the Wizard of the Month calendar on the upper right hand corner), a small envelope addressed to JKR, saying "Other stuff" will drop down from the top of the screen. Click on it and it will bring you to the FAQ/Other Stuff page.

On the FAQ/Other Stuff page, click on the paper clip on the right hand side (right next to 'Dear Joanne Rowling'). A menu with four choices should emerge on the right side. The poll is the fourth option on the menu.

Oops. The paper clip on the FAQ/Other stuff page is actually on the left side of the screen. The menu with the four choices (including the poll) also emerges from the left side. Gah, I can't tell left from right. :)

Honestly, I find all the choices pretty lame (unlike the last FAQ poll she hosted).

I mean, aside from possibly the last choice, we'll find all the answers in the next book. And none seem *that* important.

Now, what I'm wondering is when is she going to release the opening paragraph of the book (like she did for OotP)? I just stumbled across yet another fic that began with Harry sprawled in the flowers outside the Dursley's house, and remember how much fun we had reading things into that...
