Post SnitchSeeker in the News

June Solberg of TheDailyProphet.org and I were interviewed last week for this article about Norway-based Harry Potter fansites.

It was exciting to meet June because I had only been acquanted with her via e-mail previously. Since we reviewed her site a while ago for our floo section, I was anxious to meet the genius behind it.

The article (written in Norwegian) is brief, but it does write favorably about us and has a couple nice pictures of June and myself.

A few translations:
Quote:
Flateby can hardly be considered as a large Internet-metropolitin, and most likely neither can Blaker. [These are two very small towns in Norway] But this is the center for Potter fans on the internet. Enebakk countys Richard Harris (34) is the man behind one of the most popular websites about Harry Potter, snitchseeker.com, a site that is visited by several hundred-thousand fans every month.

"I had wanted to make a fansite for a while. Both Star Wars and Lord of the Rings already had some good fansites, so I chose Harry Potter. Here I felt like I could offer something different." tells Harris.
Quote:
What makes adults spend hours on web pages about children's books?

"I think those who have read the books would agree that they aren't really children's books" says Harris.

Solberg adds that people read different things in situations within the books.

"Children and adults read the books in a different way: When Hermione and Ron argue, adults read it as flirting, while children see it as fighting." explains the Blaker-girl.

She feels the books are interesting because J.K. Rowling writes about themes such as bullying and rasism.
Quote:
Lots to talk about
Harris' & Solberg's websites are the natural places for discussing the new book. Many big and exciting things happened in the book, and there are many theories around these happenings.

"Those who believe that Snape is evil, should probably read the book again." smiles Harris.
Visit the site to check out some nice photos!

Thanks to Kristoffer Gressli for the interview and the nice write-up!

Wow, great article!
But is it really true that SS is the third largest Harry Potter site? (haha, yes, I read norwegian). That sounds amazing! Anyway, thanks Richard for starting this site for us!!

Ottery, you so make me laugh! And I think I should say the same thing...thanks for the translation...but no thanks...because I dont read Norwegian, nor do I understand it, nor do I know how to speak it either. Nice pictures, though and suddenly I feel proud I am a SS member! w00t!

"It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you are not."

That is really cool! I think it's great that snitchseeker is noticed so much. It must've been a neat experience to be interviewed like that too Go snitchseeker!

You both look quite evil in that first one

Thanks for the translations. It's nice to know that someone notices our little community (in my opinion the best HP community on the internet)
