The authors' works, including this project, were featured in an article in The Wall Street Journal discussing the growth in popularity of fandoms.
In 2007, a web-based novel, James Potter and the Hall of Elders' Crossing, was written by a computer animator named George Lippert.
Potter Cast was released less than two weeks after Muggle Cast's first episode.
Produced by The Leaky Cauldron, it differed from Muggle Cast with a more structured program, including various segments and involvement of more people on the Leaky Cauldron staff compared to Muggle Cast.
Rowling wrote when giving the award, "It's high time I paid homage to the mighty Muggle Net," and listed all the features she loved, including "the pretty-much-exhaustive information on all books and films." In 2005, only The Leaky Cauldron was honored.
In Rowling's words, "it is about the worst kept secret on this website that I am a huge fan of The Leaky Cauldron," which she calls a "wonderfully well designed mine of accurate information on all things Harry Potter." In December 2007, the award went to The Harry Potter Alliance, a campaign that seeks to end discrimination, genocide, poverty, AIDS, global warming, and other "real-world Dark Arts", relating these problems to the books.
The next site was the Harry Potter Lexicon, an online encyclopedia Rowling has admitted to visiting while writing away from home rather than buying a copy of her books in a store.
She called it "for the dangerously obsessive; my natural home." The third site of 2004 was Muggle Net, a web site featuring the latest news in the Potter world, among editorials, forums, and a podcast.
Rowling has said, "I find it very flattering that people love the characters that much." She has adopted a positive position on fan fiction, unlike authors such as Anne Mc Caffrey or Anne Rice who discourage fans from writing about their books and have asked sites like Fan Fiction.
The unsuccessful attempt eventually led to their inviting the webmasters of the top sites to premieres of the films and tours of the film sets, because of their close connection with the fans. executives have acknowledged that many fans are disappointed that certain elements of the books are left out, but not trying to avoid criticism, "bringing the fan sites into the process is what we feel is really important." At the 2006 Podcast Awards, when Muggle Cast and Potter Cast each received two nominations for the same two categories, the two podcasts teamed up and requested listeners vote for Potter Cast in the Best Entertainment category and Muggle Cast in the People's Choice category. Since then, Muggle Cast has held chapter-by-chapter discussions, character analyses, and a discussion on a "theory of the week".
Muggle Cast has also added humour to their podcast with segments like "Spy on Spartz," where the hosts would call Muggle Net webmaster Emerson Spartz and reveal his current location or activity with the listening audience.
The attorneys have sent cease and desist letters to sites that host adult material.
Tracey "T" Proctor, a moderator of Fiction Alley.org, a Harry Potter fanfiction website, said 'I don't really get into the children's aspect of it, but rather the teachers, the adult characters.
