What parts of the old Pottermore weren't carried over to the new Pottermore?

Conversely, which parts of the new Pottermore weren't on the old Pottermore? (I'm only asking about the parts actually from JK Rowling. Not the stupid Buzzfeed clickbait articles.)

    In addition, in the individual character pages (for, say, McGonagall, Kettleburn, or Ollivander) the fact sheets that contained birth dates, parentage, Hogwarts House, and wand type have for whatever reason been omitted. Commented Jan 6, 2016 at 5:11

    @BolteAltamont Some of that information has been filtering its way back in. McGonagall's page, for instance, has all of that stuff again Commented Jan 10, 2016 at 17:52

    The old Pottermore also had "message boards", where users could comment on characters and events, upload drawings or just chat (with many checks and limits due to the young age of many users, for example messages could not contain web links ...); the comment boards and the drawing galleries were removed some time before the end of the old site.

    @JasonBaker my.pottermore.com/wand I pressed to try out the quiz, and then clicked away without thinking to test out the format, now I'm annoyed as I can't undo it. (I noticed one new question which wasn't on the old quiz and a completely different format.)

  • The Patronus writing will probably get added when the Patronus quiz does.
