Hey Liam!

You've been known to give some awesome feedback that is actionable in the past and I'd love if you could elaborate on why you've "lost interest" in the theme.
We love reading feedback from YoFans, but we do prefer that it is constructive and detailed so that we can take action.

I think that is the "magic" part from the movie, food instantly appeared on the tables. Kinda neat concept but would be misunderstood if you had not seen the movie?

Then why didn't they just make it animated to go on an off while your in the room I would of been fine with that! :idea:

I have to say that despite all the issues, I am having a great time this theme. If nothing else, its making me come up with some great ideas and For the first time in a long time, I dont really know where to start because of how much I want to decorate. Now, the releases have been hit and miss and I feel that the rooms are lacking a lot of items I would like to see but I have been really actively decorating the past week. I am excited to see what is in each release. I get frustrated too... so many ideas are unworkable with what we get and I just spent almost an hour looking for Umbridge clothing.... I could have swore we had stuff in her style but I am not a dresser upper and I just gave up! The fun is outweighing the frustration though and I am having fun. Yay.

Sorry, I was watching my favourite TV show and just quickly shared a thought.

Clothing
The clothing this theme has been very lacklustre in its quality. We seem to be creeping back to the very poor quality of clothing we got in the Holiday Train & Ice Village themes.

What's the weird line in the crotch area?
Image

Why is there a weird dark patch on these, and then they become a really light gold?
Image

Why does this look like a 2010/11 item & also look like a Belt we received in the AN2018 theme?
Image

Why are all clothes so shiny?!

Appearance
Why do the new eyes have such a pointless animation? Is it so you can charge more?

What are these?!
Image

Why does this look like the Butcher hair from HW2016?
Image

Why does this look extremely similar to the Shaggy Hair EMA2018?
Image

Why do your hairs now look wet?

Furniture
The Grand Hall furniture is a MUCH NEEDED improvement. Prices seem right, and the furniture is of much higher quality, so thanks for that.

Why do so many pieces look like ones we already have, and why is this an ongoing issue?

Why did you just recolour Mediterranean Getaway couches? If you're going to do that, you could at least offer some for coins.
Image

Why don't all of the purples in this release match? Look how many different hex codes there are!
Image

Why is the chair so much bigger than the couch in the same release?
Image

Why are the Flying Bats bigger than the Baby Dragons?

Why are these so small and modern looking?
Image

Why do the lions look so flattened?
Image

Why are the desks so small and the cauldrons so big?
Image

Wouldn't one of these be enough?
Image

What is with the quality of these items? That glass...
Image

Why is this such a weird quality?
Image

And as Autumn Glory keeps mentioning, don't fill out your releases with recolours, and say you're releasing lots of items, when only half the release is original items.

Some seriously good feedback from Liam there. This theme had great potential but it's execution is poor to say the least.

Just popping on to say nothing interesting for me today . Especially the steam train choo choo legs :haha: , too infantile IMO. The randomized pet crates have gone up in price this time around and I hardly need any more pets, the rare Phoenix is more interesting but I'll still pass . Ty though.

Love this theme adding to my school I had started all ready trouble is sizes the table with wizard and others is way to big to sit where it is supose to go in hall you can not see most of them , I wrote and asked if you could resize it for us was told no :( wondering if it was tried in room before it was released ?? also bed room side tables way to small to be beside bed. Dragons too small they get lost in room :( many disappointments and was so looking forward to this theme and do love every thing just wish the sizes and colors Matched , is very disappointing again seems to be a real problem with sizes lately. May be they can be tried in the rooms before they are released . I am not buying things that size is off any more . :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: was a wonderful theme ruined buy not enough care in sizes of products

This theme had me so excited! I was hoping to decorate the whole world of Harry Potter, or at very least the school. But certain aspects prevented me from pursuing decorating/dressing up.. I do think I will be able to utilize a small amount of things from this theme, but overall I cannot see myself wanting the majority of the items. I think maybe you should do a pre theme survery asking people HOW they particularly picture a theme being executed. I've voted for majority of the themes being released lately but I do not like them, as they weren't anything close to what I pictured.

House:

Firstly, just being as EPIC as HP is I was expected a ton more from the house (it's not horrible but it lacked the darkness and seemed a bit generic). This castle could be for anything and the coloration and vibrancy just didn't scream HP to me. I had planned to use another house if the furniture was good. House isn't a huge issue for me, as we have lots of other options though. But then the furniture left me wanting more too. On the plus side, I am very glad you have been including a coin home option and salute you for that.

Furniture:

What I expected- dusty dirty old looking items, deep colors (think emerald green, burgundy, plum, black, charcoal), more of a spooky/dark tone, ecclectic blend of furniture

What we got- almost a cutesy version of HP, very vibrant colors (there are some in the movie but in terms of furniture it was way too much), matchy-matchy to a fault (all the items feel the same). I didn't like the colored rims and table covers/pillows etc and it was on everything (why do this for a theme if it makes no sense?). I know I could mix other themes but I feel like I wouldn't be satisfied with the result, so I didn't try.

Things I would have liked to see- Qidditch items/stadium (or clothes), Moving Staircases, Moaning Myrtle NPC and bathroom items, Chamber of secrets chess board, Some mystical creatures (big size), way more student and teacher NPCS (much better dressed next time please), Flying Dementors etc.

Clothes-
I felt like these weren't creative as they could be for the series. The first clothing release had a good blend of items reminiscint of the movie, but the hat and other yc items were poor quality in my opinion. The hat especially looks very flat and not particularly detailed. The next release was not bad in any way, but it didn't feel like HP costumes to me. Just generic witchy costumes. Reminded me more of Oz.

Things that would have been cool- Dumbledore,'s beard and facials Hagrid inspired costume, Delores Umbrigde inspired clothes (her office would have also had superb furniture options), Dark Mark tattoos, Voldemort mask, Mad Eye's moving eyeball, Harry's striped scarf, a variety of interesting shaped wands to choose from etc.

I'm still glad you made this theme and I feel you guys have been trying. However, even though you state you are putting out the best quality possible it is also increasingly frustrating dealing with sizing discrepencies and blurry/grainy items. I'd rather not even see an item in stores if it's going to look like that. It just makes me feel annoyed. I'd rather have less items that actually make the mark.

Considering this theme is so whimsical and has enormous options, I just thought it would be more creative. I think that's my biggest complaint. If executed properly I could see this being one of the best themes of all time. I would love if you had another go at this one sometime. I think you all need to do things like office movie marathons if not and really get in the spirit. Maybe even do dress up days at work. Get your team inspired :)

This is quite clearly an item you've used to get the total item count for this release up:
