The Pottermore Insider Blog and website have been updated this blog post and link, revealing more about J. K. Rowling’s latest project:
The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted the hidden link in our ‘You ask, we answer‘ blog post from 19 July, which took you to an interview J.K. Rowling gave in 2000.

In the interview was some interesting information about a Magical Quill, located in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The Magical Quill detects the birth of a magical child and writes their name down in a large book.
Every year, Professor McGonagall checks the book and sends owls to the children who are turning eleven, to inform themthat they have a place at Hogwarts.

Each day for seven days, from 31 July to 6 August, we will be placing a clue on the Pottermore homepage to help you locate The Magical Quill. If you find it, you’ll have the chance to gain early access to Pottermore.

There will be a new clue every day, and each clue will relate to a different book in the Harry Potter series. On Day 1 the clue will relate to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, on Day 2 the clue will relate to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and so forth. The clues will also vary in difficulty. On Days 1-3 the clues will be harder, and on Days 4-7 the clues will be easier.
To find The Magical Quill, you need to solve the clue and add the answer to the end of the web address. This will lead you to a website where The Magical Quill will be located while early access places are available. The Magical Quill’s location will change every day.

Example

Clue: How many books are there in the Harry Potter series? Multiply this number by 10.

Answer: 70

Add this number to the end of the website address. (In this case it would be http://quill.pottermore.com/70)

Hit ‘Return’ to go to the website where The Magical Quill is located.

Once you have found The Magical Quill, you will be redirected to Pottermore.com. If the registration process is still open for that day, you will be able to submit your details to register to access Pottermore early.

It’s important to note that finding The Magical Quill does not guarantee you access to registration, as registration will only remain openwhile the early access places allocated for the relevant day, between 31 July to 6 August, are available.

Don’t worry if you don’t manage to register first time. There will be plenty of opportunities to find The Magical Quill as we will be revealing a new clue each day from 31 July to 6 August. For those who miss out on earlyaccess to Pottermore, please note the site will be open to all from October. Keep visiting Pottermore to find out when registration commences.
We won’t be telling you when a clue goes live, so you’ll need to keep a careful eye on Pottermore.com over the seven-day period. However, we will let you know, via Pottermore.com and the Insider, when registration for a particular day has come to an end.
Finally, please note that we will not be enabling early access to the site straight away. Once The Magical Quill challenge is over, we will send successful early access registrants a Welcome email, letting them know whenthey will be able to access Pottermore. We won’t be able to let everyone into the Beta site at the same time, so please be patient with us. You may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive.

D:Avatar ImageLuna854 says: I'm soo excited! I got in!!Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: I did it! I registered! It was fairly easy. Don't worry, guys. I worried for a moment because it took me to sony.com with a blank page, but it ended up fine. I guess I just have to wait for an e-mail now to confirm registration. So excited!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Got in too :DAvatar ImageWeTangoAlone says: HELP! When I catch the quill it says 'congratulations' and 'begin your journey' with an arrow. When I click on the arrow it doesn't take me to the registration page, just to the usual pottermore.com page with the clue. Please help! Is anyone having the same difficulties? Avatar ImageUltimuted says: BTW I have successively logged into Pottermore.com! My name is QuestProphecy124. See you at Hogwarts ;D Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Woo did it! That was exciting.. was a hard question thats for sure.. just waiting for my email to come now! Avatar Imagegecopeland says: you have to recatch the quill till it directs you to the registration. Keep refreshing the page. Eventually you'll get in.Avatar ImageNaners says: Did it! Just waiting for the email. Has anyone got the email yet? Avatar ImageRadiance says: I'M IN!! And these are horrible usernames. D;Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Mine is GoldMarauder46 see you at Hogwarts... was weird not getting to have Snunkiebrian as my username it's been my internet name for 10 years!Avatar ImageSamKamHPFan says: I GOT TO REGISTER!!!! YES!!! Avatar ImageWeTangoAlone says: I'm in. For some reason the link to the registration page wasn't active when I first tried.Avatar ImageLuna854 says: @Mel_Australia That didn't happen to me but just keep trying. I hope you get in =)Avatar ImageSamKamHPFan says: MagicPotion126, still waiting for the email........ahhhAvatar ImageAugureysCry says: I'm in, registered, activated, and now waiting for the early invitation email.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Mine is GoldSparks86....tried to log in, wouldn't let me log in yet :|Avatar ImageLuna854 says: I'm HawthorneCloak36 =)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Oh yeah, forgot we have to get an email from em first...wonder if we're gonna get in trouble for posting our usernames on here?Avatar ImageLuna854 says: It does say on the site that it may take up to few weeks to get the email =(Avatar ImageThinkblue559 says: Ha anyone gotten the email with joining instructions? I have done it twice and gotten nothing. Not even in my spam folder.Avatar ImageLivi22 says: I'M IN!! Oh my God!Avatar Imagemartinse08 says: I GOT IT!!!Avatar Imagemartinse08 says: I GOT IT!!!Avatar ImageThinkblue559 says: Has anyone gotten the email with joining instructions? I have done it twice and gotten nothing. Not even in my spam folder.Avatar Imagemartinse08 says: I GOT IT!!! Didn't get the email yet though.Avatar ImageEillac says: Wow, the email came fast. I'm so happy that I was reading a page about Diagon Alley! All I had to do was scroll down and count the names! Glad calculators come on computers. Know what you mean about names. I'm OakErised198. It's not so bad, but I'm used to being Eillac!Avatar ImageRikkeBeck says: Waiting for my email as well.. Don't wanna wait until september 30.. I wanna start now! :)Avatar ImageUltimuted says: @Thinkblue559 I got mine within 5 minutes, there probably taking longer to arrive because of the amount of people registeredAvatar Imagegecopeland says: That's the welcome email, you have to get the validation email and validate your registration within 48 hoursAvatar ImageRadiance says: Does anybody know when we'll get our emails? My friend who also got in said she thought she read on one of the registration pages that we won't get them for awhile since this is bound to get crazy...Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Well, much to my surprise I have managed to register, and am now awaiting my email.Avatar Imagemartinse08 says: Got in! Waiting for the email. Exciting, but really frustrating. I hope in comes in the next couple of days if not hours.Avatar ImageMooner says: I got in within the first minute or two. We should all be in the very earliest of invites since it says first come first serve for the invites after the contest is over.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Sposed to get a validation email and validate your registration within 48 hours. You get a Welcome email that may take several weeks, telling you when you can actually venture into Pottermore. Once you validate your registration all you can do until you get the Welcome email, is edit your account info.Avatar ImageWulfric Ravenclaw says: I've got the question right so all I need to do is wait for my owl!! EKK!Avatar Imageprathouse says: I had to capture the quill 4 times before the popup took me to the "congrats" page. I would think we can change those cryptic usernames at some point. Congrats to all who got it and happy birthday to JR and HP!Avatar ImageRavenQuill says: Waiting for the email is killing me!! I feel like it's the night before my 11th birthday all over again!Avatar ImageEillac says: Have you all gotten to the picture of Privet Drive at night? I got my email really fast, but I can't really do anything but stare at this nice picture. Do we have to wait for a second email?Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @Mooner I got registered before people even started psoting on here and sitll haven't gotten my email yet :o(Avatar ImageAnjani Lily Granger says: That was easy - if this is one of the hard questions, I wonder what the easy ones at the end of the week will be like - "How many letters are in Harry Potter's first name?" :) I'm CentaurPotion67 by the way, yuk! Did anyone NOT tick the "all" button for which books/films you have read/seen by the way?Avatar ImageMooner says: Wulfric....if you have validated your email address, yes you just have to wait for them to start sending out the official invites beginning in about a week.Avatar ImageAnjani Lily Granger says: No email yet, but wasn't expecting one to be honest given what the site said.Avatar ImageSamKamHPFan says: Relief! Got my email (it took about 10 minutes or so!) and I'm fully registered now! I hope I get picked for early access!!! Avatar ImageDfarmer99 says: Hmm I still haven't received my validation e-mail and I registered before all the posts started.Avatar ImageDespina says: I managed to find the quill, I registered and now I'm waiting for my mail!Avatar Imagejazzyjoy10 says: I am frustrated that i cant seem to get to the right page....i keep getting to the sony.com page and thats it...what am i doing wrong or am i too late?Avatar Imageamande says: I registered about 45 minutes ago and still haven't gotten the first email with joining instructions, in my inbox or junk folder! Is anyone else in the same boat, or better yet, has anyone else gotten their email after having to wait this long or longer for it? I'll be so sad if my registration expires because of an email glitch. I can't find anything in the help pages that specifically addresses this or a support email address . . . anyone else?Avatar Imagejderrick says: Got registered, got email, just waiting to see if i get picked for early access. Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Been around 30 mins for me, still no email.....Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: coolAvatar ImageRadiance says: @Amande: I'm hoping the exact same thing. Got in about 40 minutes ago, and still no email. I'm terrified of a glitch. D: About how long are most people having to wait for their emails?Avatar ImageMoony Lupin says: I got in! I am now RiverSword158. Wish I could've chosen though... I won't rememeber that.... Just excitedly waiting for my email now!Avatar ImageNaners says: @amande I've been waiting for almost an hour now and still haven't gotten an email. I really wanted to stay up and wait for the email, but it is 4AM here and I'm exhausted.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Check that, I been waitin 1 hour and 15 mins.Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: @ amande i've been waiting for over an hour now and still haven't got mine either, guess it's busy.. i presume the whole 48 hour thing will be once they have sent your email and not from when you first registered... hold tight the owls have a long way to fly! Avatar ImageLoopy Lucy says: I got my email but when I clicked the link to activate it said that there was an error and asked me to create a new Pottermore account! Has this happened to anyone?Avatar Imagegecopeland says: now THAT has to suck LucyAvatar ImageEillac says: @Loopy Lucy, yes that happened to me, I just clicked "sign in" at the top of the page and it worked. Hope you can get in!Avatar ImageLoopy Lucy says: ok, i did that and afterwards all i see is a message that says: "To ensure the exciting world of Pottermore is as magical as possible, a million lucky registrants will be given early access to the site to help us shape the experience before the site is open to all in October. If you are selected, please keep checking your inbox, because from 31st July you will receive an email granting you early access to Pottermore!" That can't be right, can it?Avatar ImageRadiance says: Oh, I'm so paranoid. I'm gonna catch the quill again and re-register on another email account, just to be safe.Avatar Imagejazzyjoy10 says: HELP AND FRUSTRATED ABOUT GETTING TO SONY WESITE!!!!!!! GRRRR ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageEillac says: @Loopy Lucy, No, I think that's normal, it's what happened to me. I think we have to wait for a second email.Avatar Imagejazzyjoy10 says: can anyone help me with figuring out why i keep gettting onto the sony website?? Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Doubt it works radiance, made one for my niece too, it's kind of our thing to read the books and see the movies together. She hasn't gotten an email for hers yet either.Avatar ImageGryffindorSlytherinTeen says: already in! i just registered! whoop whoopAvatar Imageamande says: @hp82176, can you click on the text that says "now let your journey begin" or whatever? that's what will take you to registration. don't click on anything else on that page.Avatar ImageEillac says: Maybe you live so far away that the owls are taking longer. Gosh, I hope they didn't faint or get eaten by a trestrals or something.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: It's quite possible the mail server crashed now that I think about it. That could be why we haven't gotten an email yer....or we have ta wait till October.Avatar ImageRadiance says: @gecopeland: Alas, it seems you're right. Second account hasn't gotten anything yet either. ):Avatar Imagejazzyjoy10 says: NOO!!! I feel like an idiot OMG i didnt know that...thanks for the info amande i will try tomm Avatar Imagevoldierot says: waiting for the email too. got the answer right: 245. caught the quill on my second try, entered all the info and got the message saying i should check my email account, and yet no email... i guess it's a draw of luck. they let a computer choose out an email address and send out the email. my only question is: will i need to do this all over again tomorrow? i mean enter all my details again? email address, new username? (the one i choose from the 5 they give me is kinda growing on me).Avatar ImageAnjani Lily Granger says: All registrations gone for the day now, Pottermore just tweeted it. That didn't last long! Still no confirmation email for me, at least an hour later...Avatar ImageShinyfox says: I've been waiting for my e-mail for over 1 hour & 30 minutes. I'm giving up and going to bed. I really hope I made it in! Good luck to everyone!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: WOW Registration only got to last about an hour or so! Avatar Imageprathouse says: Just got my email!!!Avatar Imagevoldierot says: andrewilley, that's odd i've only entered my info less then 40 minutes ago (my history shows 12:15 as the time i was on stage 6 registration point). I really hope if their system crashed it hadn't lost people's registration info, especially those of us who signed on last. though is it sort of discouraging, i mean you would think they have a storn Avatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: Finally got my email and i'm fully registered, hope i get the early invite now :) Avatar ImageShinyfox says: @Prathouse You did? *sad* I'm still waiting over here. It looks like you waited an hour or less? *getting very worried now*Avatar Imageluckyleo81 says: I know I'm making this more confusing than it needs to be, but what exactly does everyone see when they log into the site after they have confirmed their registration? Also, if we registered today does that mean we get in early? When I log in a sign says "If you are selected" but on the Pottermore Insider post it says that "you should receive your validation email shortly. Don't forget to click the link in your validation email within 48 hours; this will secure your early access place". Which is it? Avatar Imageultraviolet says: i stayed up til 4am and the clue never appeared :(Avatar Imageprathouse says: I wouldn't worry too much Shinyfox. My other friend hasn't got hers yet either. I activated and logged in and it's the same pottermore.com site as before the login but you can look at your account info. Still exciting!Avatar ImageNydaria02 says: Got my email.. I was so worried it took about 2 hours lolAvatar Imagesnunkiebrian says: "To ensure the exciting world of Pottermore is as magical as possible, a million lucky registrants will be given early access to the site to help us shape the experience before the site is open to all in October. If you are selected, please keep checking your inbox, because from 31st July you will receive an email granting you early access to Pottermore!" That is what mine says @luckyleo81... you'll just have to wait and see if you get another email to invite you in early Avatar ImageNydaria02 says: Got my email.. I was so worried it took about 2 hours lolAvatar ImageAnjani Lily Granger says: Email arrived a few minutes ago, phew! All confirmed now, and settled in at Privet Drive at night. I guess once live registrations for today ended, their email engine could start to catch up with the backlog.Avatar ImageShinyfox says: @Prathouse Thanks for the kind words! I figure I'll just go to bed and when I wake up the owls will have left the letter for me! Here's hoping! @Nydaria I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. If your's took 2 hours then I'm sure mine will appear soon(ish)!Avatar Imageamande says: Got mine too after about an hour and a half. Thanks everyone!Avatar ImageNydaria02 says: @Shinyfox I am sure a owl will have dropped it off before you wake. :)Avatar ImageRadiance says: Oh goodness, I'm so happy to hear that all of your emails finally came through! Makes me much more hopeful. I can now to go bed in the hopes it'll be there in the morning, haha~Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: Yes, my validation e-mail took well over an hour to arrive, but all is calm for now on Privet Drive at night, though it appears Dumbledore is on site. Hope I'm one of the one million tp get an e-mail for early access. According to the T&C, it's first-come, first-serve, but there are also allocation limits based on language so that the site can beta test for possible issues.Avatar Imageprathouse says: I'm confused after activating and logging in if I'm 1 of the million accepted for early reg or if there's another hoop to jump through? Didn't I do the work necessary? O-OAvatar Imagemariakingsford says: i have got my email and have activated account. :-)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Still haven't got mine yet :|Avatar ImageNydaria02 says: Congrats all :)Avatar ImageNydaria02 says: @gecopeland it took me 2 hours I am sure you will get it. Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @prathouse: From the site's help--"After you have registered (by submitting your details and validating your registration via the email sent to you), we will send you a Welcome email letting you know that you can gain access Pottermore. Due to the number of people seeking to register, you may have to wait several weeks before receiving this email." It may be a while before you receive a welcome e-mail providing you with access information. At least you're registered and validated.Avatar ImageAnjani Lily Granger says: So, do we reckon that they limited the numbers early on day one, to keep the load down, or did they really get one-seventh of their quoted one million people in about an hour! That would be nearly 150,000 registrations!Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: I'm registered! That was definitely one of the best nights of my life :D Now it's time to sleep. Good night, fellow Potter fans <3Avatar Imagevoldierot says: @andrewilley, hopefully you're right.Avatar Imagevoldierot says: never just got mine too :-D yeyAvatar Imageagentzac says: I'm in!! Now just have to wait for the Welcoming Owl...Avatar Imagegecopeland says: What's wierd is I did my neice's after I did mine and she just got hers. I still haven't got mine.Avatar Imageprathouse says: @Floofeather12 thanks for that. I saw that and disregarded it after I received my activation and logged in. :¬) I'm logged in and able to log out and log back in so don't I have access to Pottermore? A second email to further weed out the riff raff seems quite unnecessary if you ask me.Avatar ImageStoenk says: i went there at 11.30 am english time and day 1 was closed alreadyAvatar ImagePotters_pal says: I don't have a clue what to do!!!! Yippeee!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I am Absolutely LIVID! I accidentally fell asleep while waiting here in the US and I woke up at 6:00am EST to find it closed! Oh well... I guess I'll try tonight/tomorrow. What was the clue anyway?Avatar ImagePeriadoc says: I am so confused right now. How did everyone know what time the clue was going to be posted today? Is it going to be posted at the same time everyday? Are they going to release a different time everyday? Or do I have just have to constantly refresh the website every day all day long???Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: I love Leaky :DAvatar Imagemoisenallie16 says: @Periadoc I am wondering the same thing! I caved and went to bed, so I am wondering what time tomorrow I am going to have to wake up, or stay up to to get on tomorrow... Avatar Imagetlhorton says: I also went to bed around 0100 and was back on by 0700 EST to find it already closed. That really stinks that it was only open for a couple of hours. If its only going to open at those odd hours then those of us who live on the east coast & have to work have no chance of getting on early.Avatar ImagePeriadoc says: @moisenallie16 and tlhorton I don't mind so much what time it is posted (the perks of being unemployed) I just want to know WHEN so I have at least some kind of chance to get in. I feel its a little unfair when it comes to those who have to work and all that jazz, especially at what seems to be crazy alternating hours.Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Congrats to everyone who got in! What was the clue anyway?Avatar Imageluckyleo81 says: the time will change everyday. i can only assume that this is so (a) people keep interest (b) people in different time zones have a chance and (c) the site doesn't crashAvatar Imageluckyleo81 says: the time will change everyday. i can only assume that this is so (a) people keep interest (b) people in different time zones have a chance and (c) the site doesn't crashAvatar Imageluckyleo81 says: the time will change everyday. i can only assume that this is so (a) people keep interest (b) people in different time zones have a chance and (c) the site doesn't crashAvatar Imageluckyleo81 says: sorry that posted 3 times! my computer decided to have a little spasm!Avatar Imageestrella22 says: I read on another site that the clue was how many types of Owls are sold at the Owl emporium. Multiply it by 45 and you get the answer. Then you put that number at the end of the website they gave and you were sent to registration. Seems as name are given out randomly and you don't get to choose (or not choose from a wide selection)... Hoping to get in tomorrow as I missed registration by about 20 minutes...Avatar ImageLivi22 says: I managed to get on and register and everything but what I don't understand is whether that means I have a place as one of the first million or not! Can anyone help?Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: The instructions are vague - is the clue posted on the Pottermore home page?Avatar Imagelovewizards says: Today's clue was posted in the purple banner at the center of the screen of the Pottermore Homepage.Avatar ImageManveer says: i surely wanna get it but..... what time?/?????Avatar Imagelunalovejoy says: it's been 3 hours and i haven't gotten the email :( will i need to do it all over again tomorrow?Avatar Imagelovewizards says: If you haven't received your email yet, check your email spam box.Avatar Imagecherryzum says: hey guys. Longtime podcast listener, first-time leaky register/comment :-) yay! anyway,I feel so sorry for those of you who were unlucky. I knew that it could happen anytime, and because the initial announcement happened early in the morning in the UK, I figured that was what was likely to happen. It went live around 3 AM central, and closed at almost exactly 5 AM, several of you were so close!!! tomorrow, just a guess, try logging in at maybe 4 AM central time, and then keep your browser open on that site, at all times, if you can manage it.or maybe try to check every hour? It will be open, I'm guessing for at least two hours tomorrow. Just keep your eye on the site, and a chamber of secrets really close by :-)sadly, theycan't give us an exact time, because if they did, they'd have so many people trying to register that it wouldn't even come close to 1 million. This way, it narrows it down. It really stinks, I know. Good luck everyone!!!!!Avatar Imagecherryzum says: hey guys.

Good luck everyone!!!!!Avatar Imageroonwit says: I imagine they will pick different times each day, to distribute them more fairly for people in different time zones.Avatar Imagecherryzum says: iunalovejoy great name by the way :-) what time did you register? I waited over an hour, and two hours isn't uncommon. Perhaps they just haven't gotten to you yet, if it's not in your junk mail? If it said you were magical, that they were sending you an e-mail, and that e-mail address was a valid one, you should get one eventually :-) keep up the hope, I know it's hard. It should be okay.Avatar Imagedsm25 says: lunalovejoy - The site said it could take weeks for you to get your email. Avatar Imagecherryzum says: Girlraven1just to be clear, the clue itself was only posted on the website for two hours. I think the clue will only be posted when registration is available each day, though that's just a guess. The answer for today was 245. You got it by finding out that there were five types of owls listed on the sign, and multiplying it by 49. I don't think these are things that even HP experts are likely to know offhand, at least for the first couple days, so keep those books by your computer!Avatar Imagecherryzum says: Deb25 , I'm afraid you're slightly mistaken. It will take weeks to receive a second e-mail, this one referring to when you can access the site early. But, the first initial e-mail is to confirm/verify your initial registration, so that should only take a few hours.Avatar Imagecherryzum says: Livi22-((ROAR!!)sorry. We don't 100% know yet. The good news is that we are all in the same situation right now. no one appears to know anything!! I would , however,strongly assume that the news is good for you because the website said that once you register, you will be contacted twice, once confirming your registration, and once, weeks later,telling you when you can access the site. I know that the message that your get when you register is unclear, but the help message is much more clear. I think Joe may have just wanted to play with the wording, but that's just a guess :-) I hope I'm right.Avatar Imagecherryzum says: Livi22-((ROAR!!)sorry. We don't 100% know yet.

Avatar Imagevera says: I did it three times, two with the explorer and one with the chrome because no email would come. I checked the inbox 4 hours later and I got one email but when I tried to activate the account my password wasn't accepted. I was very careful to write down both username and password so I know it is the correct one. I'll have to try again tomorrow though I am certain that they will change the time to make it easier for people all around the world to enter. All the technical things make it harder than it should be. Either the work load is immense or their systems don't work.

ALREADY!!?? Grr. But I did find the clue on a news site and figured it our pretty easily. I might be out of luck, because the question is only available in the book, because I only have Philosopher's Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Half-Blood Prince, and Deathly Hallows. I'm gonna have 3 other chances. Wish me luck!Avatar Imagelunalovejoy says: KatieBell77 - lol thanks. the interviewer for the deathly hallows 2 premiere wrongly called luna that and i thought it was hilarious (he also accidentally called the weasley twins the neville twins T__T) i registered around 4 hours ago. i hope it'll come soon otherwise i'm gonna have to register again tomorrow sighAvatar Imagelunalovejoy says: TheHeirOfSlytherin2 - i just googled for today's answer eventhough i have the book with me because it's faster :DAvatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Thanks KatieBell77 -- looks like I'm in for a late night watching the webpage!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: My eyes are glued to the screen :D I really can't wait. Thank you JK Rowling.Avatar Imagefftlpunkchick says: Thank you for not just posting the link to the magical quill (when the clue was solved) like mugglenet. Your action (or lack of? I guess) speaks volumes. Thank you. Siriusly.Avatar Imageratorr2 says: Ugh! I stayed up until 1:30 am (8:30 am London time) and finally decided to go to be. When I got up this morning I find that the clue appeared just after I went to bed and missed it be just a few minutes. :-(Avatar Imagecherryzum says: You guys are so, so welcome! It brings me happiness to perhaps be able to help out fellow HP fans that seem just as obsessed as I am!!!! Girlraven1 good luck. Word to the wise, I don't think you have to constantly watch the webpage, just keep it open constantly, and maybe check every hour after midnight UK time. Which is four hours ahead of Eastern, by the way. It will be open for a while, I'm guessing. I had time to go downstairs, come back upstairs, find the book, find the reference, and take my time registering. The key is making sure you get there with plenty of time to spare, so just make sure you check regularly. It helps if you get there right when it opens, of course, but you should have plenty of time. BTW, if you're sure that registration is still open, and you can't get through, don't worry. Just keep refreshing the page. This happens to me a couple times. Keep trying until it says registration is closed.Avatar Imagejedisakora says: It's only 10am and the first day registration is already closed! :CAvatar Imagelovewizards says: For those who are already registered. The message you get after logging in has changed to something much more clear... Congratulations! You’ve successfully validated your early access Pottermore account. You will be one of the lucky few to shape the experience before the site opens to all in October. You may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive as we can’t let everyone into the Beta site at the same time. We look forward to seeing you Avatar Imagelovewizards says: This is now on the Pottermore Blog: However, if you have been successful in registering during The Magical Quill challenge, we can confirm you will gain access ahead of the site opening to all in October, so please be patient! Avatar Imagecherryzum says: vera, poor thing. It sounds like something that happened to me. Let me try to explain, and maybe it will help you. If you tried to type in your username and password before you got your registration e-mail, or before you confirmed your registration, it probably didn't work. I know because I was concerned that I wasn't getting my e-mail, and I tried the exact same thing. When it wouldn't let me in, I felt really uneasy. This is very important: unless I'm very much mistaken, you don't need to supply your username or password to verify your registration. It sounds like you got registered, and just were waiting for the e-mail. Once the e-mail comes, you have 48 hours to click on a supplied link, which will supposedly ensure your early admission. So find the e-mail and click on the link. Be patient, because it might take a while to get the e-mail. One final thing you might check, was the e-mail address you supplied the correct one? My guess would be that you did, so I would just keep looking. I hope this helps! I know it can be frustrating.Avatar Imagesirius33 says: I cannot wait!!! I hope I get in!!Avatar Imagejoe11093 says: I was able to register and i got my validation email :D i now have a username and everything, just waiting to get my Welcome email. i can't wait :DAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Missed it!

Avatar Imagevin-cenza says: The Potterheads on Tumblr and I were all freaking out - you should have seen my dashboard! And I've got about five pages devoted to Pottermore and how it was over demand on my own Tumblr. I was only allowed until 12,30am to stay on my laptop, so I went on my iPod after that, and I just feel asleep, even though I tried really hard to stay awake. I pulled an all-nighter that night before, and didn't get to sleep until around 6.30am, so maybe instead of staying up all night the night before I should have done it earlier! I really hope I can get onto it tonight.Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: I can't sleep... I'm supper excited... sleep is impossible! I have to drink a lot of coffe. A LOT of coffe.Avatar Imagecherryzum says: lovewizards thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagemuggleborn525 says: As of 8am PST registration for day 1 is now closed :( It looks like I'm going to have to stay up tonight and try for day 2 at midnightAvatar ImageMooner says: You have at least 8 hours to sleep before "tomorrow" in London....LOLAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Oh, I'm so confussed. I got the clue, and posible answers but i think I'm doing something wrong.... Avatar Imagestenojoz says: Dang it! I went to bed right before! So dumb for not checking Leaky before....I was just sooo tired. Went to bed waaay too late the night before. Well, I just wonder if it's going to always come out after the whole world is Aug. 1st? That way I shouldn't even bother trying until 2 am central time? Or would they do it while we in the States are still 'in' July 31st technically.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Can someone please help? I got my clue, I'm typeing in answer, and it keeps bringing be to road runner.com. I'm doing someing wrong right? HELP!!!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Stenojoz, the clue is... How many breeds of olw are featured on the Eeylops Owl Emporium sing? Multiply this number by 49Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: grr i have such a busy day!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wont have time to sit in front of the computer waiting for the clue:(Avatar Imagestenojoz says: Thanks Ginnygirl...but I know what the clue was, but it's closed now, according to Pottermore. It was open for about 2 hours I think, but it went up right after I went to bed last night. So I've just got to pull an all-nighter tonight, I guess.Avatar Imagecedesalexis says: So my question is how is this going to work? As this is going live at the same time everywhere is it based on Pacific Time as it was just past midnight on the 31st when the 1st clue was revealed? In Hawaii it wasn't even the 31st yet, so they won't get a clue today unless tomorrow's clue comes even earlier and they probably weren't expecting it on the 30th as it was only about 10pm their time. So apparently it is possible to NOT get a clue everyday or potentially get 2 in one day if one come's out later and the next one come's out earlier. As much as I would love to be a beta tester I am not going to sit at my computer 24/7 to wait for a clue to be revealed. Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Would it be too much to ask that people who have discovered the clue and its answer NOT post them in public places like this before the day's registration window is closed? It's really not fair to give away a shortcut when so many people have been playing by the rules and sitting at their computers for hours refreshing their screens waiting for the Quill to appear.Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: In addition to coffee, my clever plan is to sleep now, wake up tonight and stay 'till tomorrow night awake. But if the clue appears just I'm at school... maybe I'll... forget.Avatar ImageNaners says: I was able to register last night (or should I say very early this morning since it was like 3AM here, lol). Didn't get an email after an hour of waiting so I just went to bed hoping that when I woke up I would get it. Woke up 6 hours later and checked my email, still no email :( Just wondering did anyone else use a yahoo email account? Wondering if maybe Yahoo didn't let it go through? Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: can someone please please help me???? i am really really confused!!!!!!!!! ik that a clue will appear and that u will have to get the correct anwser to find the magical quill but i am really confused about the whole registration/email thing!!!!! and has the first clue already gone up yet??? Avatar Imagelunalovejoy says: ginnylove101, the first clue had gone up and registrations for day 1 is closed. you will need to try again tomorrow for day 2. Avatar Imagelunalovejoy says: naners, me too :( i'm using a yahoo account and it's been 7 hours since i registered, still no email.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Naners I used a yaho account and I haven't gotten my email either! I'm going to be so mad if I have to do it over again!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Naners I used a yaho account and I haven't gotten my email either! I'm going to be so mad if I have to do it over again!Avatar ImageNaners says: @ginnylove101 once you find the magical quill you will be taken to a registration page. you just fill it out and then wait for an activation email once you receive the email you click the link to activate your account and then you just wait for them to send out a second email that lets you know if you are among the lucky ones who get to experience Pottermore early. (that email they say could take up to 2 weeks to get) Not everyone will get the second email so it is just a waiting game. The 1st clue has already been up and it is closed. Now we're just waiting on the 2nd.Avatar ImageNaners says: Yeah, i really don't want to have to stay up all night again tonight, lol. Hmm, I think if i haven't gotten an email before the 2nd clue I'm going to try a different email server.Avatar Imagecedesalexis says: I didn't get registered, but did you Yahoo email users check your junk box? ...just a suggestion, if you haven't already.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Pottermore insider did say that if you do register during the magic quill quest you will get early acess. You just have to wait a bit because everyone can't get in at the same time. Also you have to make sure you vaildate your email. Also for those of us who have not gotten their email we have 48hrs after we register to get that validation email other wise we have to do it again.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Yes I have been checking both since I sent my info in. :-(Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: thanks guys!!! but what i really need to know is when the next clue will go up in america!! my parents are strict so unless i have a pretty specific time they prob wont let me!!! Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: thanks guys!!! but what i really need to know is when the next clue will go up in america!! my parents are strict so unless i have a pretty specific time they prob wont let me!!! Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @ginnylove I'm sorry to say there is no set time. Avatar ImageDoziami says: You actually don't get a second email informing you that you were chosen to get early access. Instead, you see this message on Pottermore once you've signed in after validating your registration: "Congratulations! You’ve successfully validated your early access Pottermore account. You will be one of the lucky few to shape the experience before the site opens to all in October. You may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive as we can’t let everyone into the Beta site at the same time. We look forward to seeing you." Hope that does away with any doubt. Avatar ImageNaners says: Yup, I've been checking both inbox and spam folder since I've registered. @ginnylove101 I'm not sure when the next clue will be put up. I think it is random. Not sure if it is going to be about the same time as the last clue was since I think they want to make it fair for everytime zone they will do it at different times everyday. I'll be upset if the other clues appear while i'm at work if i never do get the email from the first clue. :(Avatar Imagepolyjusposhun says: Amazed that I was able to get registered. Am very happy about it and can't wait to see what happens next. I do think that if there are fan sites posting a link straight to the quill (which I am glad to see this site did not do) defeats the purpose of having a question you have to figure out how to answer and it not at all fair to those who are doing this the honest way. Let's hope that anyone on a fansite that may have done that will not continue that and it was just a case of their enthusiasm temporarily blinding their better judgement.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: ok well if anyone finds out anything about the time...... please notify me!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @ Dooziami, yes you will get a second email. You get a Welcome email letting you know what date you can actually enter Pottermore. Go read the Help page on Pottermore.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: OK so I woke up after teh whole 2st clue craze and here's the deal. I never got the validation email for mine and I used a Yahoo email. I DID get the one I set up for my niece about 20 min later and for hers I used my hotmail account. Figured her birthday is Sept 26th and it will be a cool early bday present for her. Yahoo = Bad, Hotmail = Good. LOLAvatar Imagegecopeland says: whoa I can't type after I just wake up. meant 1st clue not 2st clue lol.Avatar ImageDoziami says: @gecopeland I was referring to everyone expecting a second email informing them they've been chosen for early access. You won't get one- the Welcome email is different from being told they've been chosen as the "lucky few." The Welcome email (which I mentioned in the post) informs you WHEN and HOW you can access the Beta. Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @Doziami yes your second email is the Welcome email which tells you when you can use Pottermore. If your account validated, you are one of the lucky chosen few.Avatar ImageDespina says: I'M IN!!!!!!!! I MADE IT!!!!!!!!!! My account has been validated, I'm one of the lucky few!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageskylercharm says: I can't wait for the next pottermore quil challenge.

I used a yahoo e-mail... I am... so... crushed right now...Avatar ImageDoziami says: Yahoo! dropped the ball... most, if not all, of the people who registered using Yahoo! have yet to receive their validation emails. Hopefully they do before the 48 hours are up. Avatar ImageSmitch says: I SHALL have my chance at early registration! Let's see how long it takes. Please, please, PLEASE! Nothing is ever easy in the wizarding world - always an adventure! And we wouldn't have it any other way, right everyone?! So exciting. Avatar ImageShinyfox says: I made a hotmail account and will continue to stalk the pottermore site... I am just... WOW after all that?

It's so messed up.Avatar Imagegraziboi says: To those of you with Yahoo Mail, I FINALLY received my email. I completed my registration a little after 4am and just received the email 11 hours later a little after 3 pm. Don't fret! You will get your email! :)Avatar ImagePatronus 27 says: I received the e-mail. I'm in the site!!! :-)Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Well thats good to know! I was thinking I would need to use gmail!Avatar ImageSigourney1990 says: Amazing! :) I'm not too worried if I don't get into Pottermore early because it will be opening for everyone, but it will be fantastic to try.Avatar ImageRadiance says: To everyone using Yahoo, do not fear! I panicked after my first main Yahoo account didn't receive the email, so I re-caught the quill last night and registered again with my secondary Yahoo account. And I got the confirmation email on that one! Still no word on my first account...but at least I know I'll be in on one. Avatar ImageRadiance says: ALSO! To those of you who had the chance and caught the quill... I just made a group for us. <3Avatar ImageIssy2322 says: I am eager and attentive to each site update Avatar Imageasti says: It took 8 hours for my email to arrive via Yahoo............

Blues says: I'm so anxious about it. I wish I'd get it already :pAvatar ImageEeyore says: I tried several times and was about to give up. Then I got a screen that said the site was overloaded and couldn't take any more at that time. I'm not sure why I did try about 15 minutes after that, but I got to register. Then it took a long time, at least 45 minutes, before I got an email to validate my registration. I guess that still isn't a guarantee that I'll get in, but at least I'm closer than I was. So now I'm checking my email more often and have all my fingers and toes crossed. :-DAvatar ImageEeyore says: Actually, I guess I did get in. I got the Congratulations! message and that I'll have to wait a few weeks to get another email. Oy, that's what happens when you read things at 2 am. Cool!Avatar Imageluckyleo81 says: @ eeyore, if you validated your registration in the e-mail you should be a better tester. log into pottermore and you should see a banner that says congrats. Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Missed it :( Try again tomorrow :)Avatar Imageprathouse says: Got my activation on my Gmail an hour after registering...my wife's Yahoo account has not received it as of 12 hours later. That's strange that Yahoo is having problems unless Pottermore's email system is grouping domains and sending at different times but that seems stupid. Perhaps Yahoo is the Errol of email addresses ;¬)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: For those of you who got stuck like myself wondering what happened to that owl after being one of the very first to register....I finally got to validate mine.12 hours later exactly, to the minute. I made my niece's account 20 minsor so after mine and I was able to validate hers after an hour or so. So again..Yahoo email : BAD Hotmail email: GOODAvatar Imagegecopeland says: I got mine,s he'll get hers Prathouse. 12 hours later exactly. The poor owls are just worn out.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: lol please tell me when anyone finds out what time the next clue will go up!!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @ginnylove101 you have to stay up and go by the 3 rule! 1.drink a coke 2. go bathroom. 3. refresh the page! Rinse and Repeat as needed. I started watching the page about 2:30 am central and the clue didn't show up until 3:30 am central. I went by the 8 am London time strategy that most of the web was talking about.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Yahoo email validations DEFINITELY were handled by Errol.

I'm so worried about not getting it. ds;fjds;fj;adsfjdjfjAvatar Imagewiz witch says: I'm NOT excited, I'm annoyed. People like me can't stay up until 4 AM ect., it's not fair! :'(Avatar Imageprathouse says: Since the UK and the US are the largest markets I'm sure the clues will cater to those markets. My guess is another 9am-ish UK clue then 2-3 9am-ish west coast US clues to make it convenient for all of North America.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @gecopeland lol but my parents r pretty strict sooo i dont have the option of staying up all night!!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Aww Wiz, the times wil probably change each day.

Errol was handling the delivery duties for us.Avatar Imageginny-luna-mygirls says: and got in Avatar ImageHiren58 says: Ahh I missed it!!! So I'm doing all I can for tomorow!!!. Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Gecopeland I guess I have to wait a little longer because mine still hasn't come. I'm glad they are giving us 48 hrs because I guess they knew they had to send Errol with some of the letters. LOLAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Question of the day for thsoe of us that got in: Was the question too easy or are we just really really dedicated Potter Freaks? I think both :PAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: I agree it was both, Altho more so dedication because as soon as I read the question I knew exactly what chapter to go to no problem! lolAvatar ImageNaners says: Congratulations! You’ve successfully validated your early access Pottermore account. You will be one of the lucky few to shape the experience before the site opens to all in October. You may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive as we can’t let everyone into the Beta site at the same time. We look forward to seeing you. Wooo! FINALLY got my email after like 11-12 hours. So glad too because I have work tomorrow and can't sit in front of computer all day. I used yahoo so maybe yahoo is slower than the other email services. Hopefully everyone will get their email soon! Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Errol strikes again!Avatar ImageNaners says: @gecopeland I thought the question was pretty easy. I had to look it up in the book, but I knew exactly where to look and it took me all of a minute to look it up, haha. I'm glad I was able to get in on the first clue because I haven't read the second book nearly as much as all the others, so I probably would've skipped that one.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: I just remembered the store front had 5 owls and an empty perch. I wasn't sure if they were different breeds so I sorta took a guess at it. I read and watch too much Harry Potter and remember the most insignificant thingsfor no reason.(until this point obviously lol) I know at least 5 people I've watched movies with wouldn't even remember Hagrid's dog guarding the Chamber of Secrets name was Fluffy.Avatar ImageRadiance says: 13 hours later and my main email still hasn't gotten the invite... Glad my secondary account got it, or else I'd probably be hyperventilating right now. :/ Silly Yahoo and Errol.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I'm about to be hyperventilating. I only signed up one account and I haven't gotten an email for it yet. I dunno what's happening unless they are grouping domain names together and sending them out like that. The problem is that the help section of Pottermore is vague. Do I have forty-eight hours to get the email or once I get the email do I have forty-eight hours to click the link? I'm so confused and freaked out :pAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Here's a random quesiton that might pop up in the future for the contest...How many galleosn did harry's wand cost? :P Don't even ask me why I remember this one either.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @gecopeland, it was either 7 or 14 galleons. I don't remember.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: You have 48 hours from the time you recieve the validation email Elwood.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: 7 was the answer Elwood, good guess!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Elwood you have 48 hrs from the time you signed up so. If you haven't received it by tomorrow then you need to retry again with a different email for the 3rd clue.Avatar Imagelunalovejoy says: OMG I just got my validation email after 13 hours, I can finally sleep! :D to those of you trying for 2nd clue today, avoid using yahoo. Like someone before me said, it is definitely the Errol of email addresses T___TAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Leolady23 it doesn't specify whether the receipt is you getting the email or them getting the "create account" order. They should be more specific.Avatar Imageroonwit says: Elwood: It will be 48 hours from when they sent the email. They might extend that if there is a delay on their servers, but they have no way of knowing about delays after it leaves their servers so they can't make allowances for that. gecopeland: We have had the book one question, tomorrow's will be from book 2 and so on. Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @ Elwood this is the info on the official Pottermore Insider page. What happens if I don’t click on the link in my registration validation email? To complete your registration you must click on the link in the validation email within 48 hours of submitting your details to the site. If you don’t, your registration will be invalid and you will need to start the registration process againAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @roonwit Thanks for giving me the piece of mind. Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @roonwit Thanks for giving me the piece of mind. Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: *peace :pAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: Errol finally brought me my email! About time!!!Avatar Imagetommarvoloriddle22 says: This link still seems to work https://www.pottermore.com/en/register/7Avatar ImageHogwartsForever says: Sod this, I'll wait October, but good luck to anyone who tries to get in this week!Avatar ImageLulyLovegood says: I´m so glad I got the email and now I´m in :) For those waiting: hold on there guys, errol is coming! :)Avatar Imagehorizonshavenolimits says: yay read the terms and conditions (yes boring i know) but its made me even more excited about the galleons and house points seeing it written down :)Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: Anyone know about what time the clue was out on the East Coast last night, I'm trying to figure out what time I need to be on the computer tonight,Avatar Imageprathouse says: @witbeyondmeasure28 Around 4:30. But if you ask me I don't think they would be so predictable as to make it the same time. Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: Thanks. I'm going to be on staring @ 3am and just keep checking than I don't want to miss it.Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: oops *startingAvatar Imagemiss molly says: @hogwartsForever I am with you I can wait until October. People are going to stay up tonight and the clue may not even come around again at night. I like sleep to much. :) If a clue happens when I am around then I will try but I refuse to stay up all night to get on a website that will be open in a few months. People are trying to sell their accounts on Ebay. There was one for $1000.00. If someone pays that they are insane. I love Harry Potter but if I am going to spend $1000.00 for HP then it will be towards a trip to England for the studio opening not a website account. Avatar Imageprathouse says: My advice to those who absolutely must sleep :) is to create a disposable Twitter account, follow 1 HP fan site that alerted followers last night and set your phone Twitter app to alert you audibly for any message posted. There may be some waffle waking you up unnecessarily but I think it's the most efficient option.Avatar Imagemiss molly says: @witbeyondmeasure28 it is past midnight in the UK now so the next clue could show up at anytime.There is nothing to say it will be at the same time as yesterday. It could come on in 10 minutes from now or 10 hours. They could give the clue at 10 pm UK time which would be 5 PM EST tomorrow afternoon. Avatar Imageprathouse says: @miss molly Haha I just saw that $1000 account on Ebay, minimum $800 with no bids though. How ridiculous. The other is bid up to $8...7 dollars more than I'd spend just to save a few hours of sleep. O-OAvatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @ miss molly, Yea I've been thinking that too, so I'll just keep checking I never sleep so maybe it will be up earlier tonight. Hopefully anywayAvatar ImageRavenclaw4eva says: sooo excited!!! hopefully it's up early tonight!!!!Avatar Imagebweil says: We will also be varying the time each clue is revealed – as well as the difficulty of the clues – to give as many people as possible a chance to register for early access. ^^This is what pottermore insider put out... each clue is coming out at a different time. I just wish i knew somehow when so I could make sure I would be there!! :) Avatar Imagemiss molly says: @prathouse If any one actually bids on that $800/$1000 auction they need serious help. Even the $8.00 bid is not worth it when the site is open to everyone in two months and there are till 6 chances to get in. I figure day 7 should be light since everyone is trying to get in early :) @witbeyondmeasure28-good luck I hope you get in and don't have to go with out much sleep. They should throw the east coast a bone and open the clue in the next few hours since we were asleep when all the excitement went down. :) Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @miss molly thanks I hope so too. I agree they should throw us a bone lol but I doubt they will.Avatar Imagelovewizards says: I got in early this morning, but I'm lurking around here to help those trying to get in day two.Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: @prathouse That's a really great idea. Who should I follow though? I spent several minutes browsing Pottermore fan accounts but couldn't seem to find anyone that had posted about it when it was happening or didn't have a bunch of spam tweets mixed in.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I think that there will be a clue this morning around 9am EST. But its just a guessAvatar Imageprathouse says: @percyisboss I follow @hogwartsradio and they posted it within seconds. There was a bit of impatient banter up until that but I doubt there will be as much from now on.Avatar Imagelovewizards says: @percyisboss You could google Pottermore but select last hour and sort by date in the left marginAvatar Imagepercyisboss says: @prathouse @lovewizards Thanks so much for the help! I'll be sure to try out both.Avatar ImageBijia says: There's something funny about Leaky's time though...Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Sorry guys -- but so far I think Pottermore s--ksAvatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Sorry guys -- but so far I think Pottermore s--ksAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: Did the clue last night require you to refresh the Pottermore Home page? Does anyone have any clue what the new question may be?It seemed like last night most people knew it had something to do with Diagon Alley. Is there any hint's for tonight like that? I stayed up last night, but my eye lids closed 15min before the clue. I was devastated. Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @ecoastpotter i think that the only reason that people knew when and what the clue was going to be, is because people who went to leaky con were told the time and told that it would be in the chapter about diagon ally..... i dont think that they were given anything about today though... i cant tell u what exactly the question is going to be only that its gonna be in the chamber of secrets book. sorry i couldnt have been more helpful but im usually the one asking questions and not giving answers:)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: No. You put the link in your browser as the directions indicate, followed by a /and the answer. You then click on magical quill and the screen then tells yout o venture forth, you click that, and ti takes you to pottermore registration page. If it just takes you to pottermore, you have to go back nad catch the quill again until it gives you the registration page.Avatar Imageprathouse says: I don't think anyone other than those associated with the website have the foggiest idea what the clue will be. Obviously it will be a "how many" question and probably not as easy as last night's. (i.e. not a 1-5 answer again)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @ginnylove nobody knew what time it owuld appear. We all did the same thing. Waited until midnight and refreshed the page whilst consuming mass amounts of caffiene and taking many trips to the restroom.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: My tip for staying up: 1 case YooHoo chocolate drink. 1 Pot of Coffee. 1 very close bathroom. A Harry Potter movie to watch to keep you occupied. Last but not least DON'T LAY DOWN. Stay at your computer chair, stand up and stretch every 20 mins, DON'T READ THE BOOKS. YOU WILL FALL ASLEEP and find yourself in Diagon Alley. Merely keep your book close by as reference material.

Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: Thx Ginnylove,Gecopeland and Prathouse Did you guys manage to get the Magic Quill last night?Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: I will be up for a while if anyone would like for me to keep an eye out for them, but I don't think they will do the clue in the middle of the night again Avatar Imageprathouse says: Oh yes! I solved it within a minute or 2 of appearing and I was very shocked that neither Pottermore nor Sony's site showed any ill effects of a sudden influx of thousands of people. Obviously they're on top of their game, unlike my local supermarket when they have sales!Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Leolady23 I'm still waiting for Errol to show up. If you could keep an eye out for me it'd be great :)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Yes I got in ECoastPotter. Had it solved within a few seconds of it appearing. One more crucial ingredient to staying up late that I forgot to mention: 1 box of ritz crackers, EZ Cheese in the can is optional.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: I can do that. Which email service did you use and about what time did you put in your info? @Elwood?Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I hope the clue is reviled just after midnight!!! I need to get some sleep!!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Harry89 I doubt that will be the case. But we will see.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @leolady23 I can only hope! What do you guys think the clue will be?Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: HAHA nice list, I'm going to be brewing up some English breackfast tea and pray to the man above I dont have a repeat of last night.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: If I had to take a guess, I would hedge a bet that the clue will probably be 3-4 am eastern. I think logically the time will keep moving up an hour or 2 allowing for the final clue to come back around to about 8-9 am eastern our time.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Other than it being something about book two who knows.Avatar Imagelovewizards says: @leolady There's talk elsewhere to remember JKR saying to follow the owls. It was stated somewhere official that the clue is from CS. Owl references in CS include (I'm sure this isn't all of them): How many owls did Harry receive at the Dursley's? I don't have my book or I'd give the answer. Uncle Vernon was awoken by Hedwig three times. Percy received 12 OWLS Owls dropped of Hogwarts letters at the Burrow for Percy, Twins, Ron and Harry. I'm not sure about Ginny. The Weasleys own 2 owls, Errol and Hermes Errol delivers Ron's HowlerAvatar ImageHarry89 says: My friend and I are having a PotterMore watch party. We will get in tonight!!!Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Leolady, I used Yahoo! and I put in my info at about 3:45. Still haven't gotten the email. Verrrry frustrating.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I think it may be the date of Nearly Headless Nick's death. Since Harry attends the death day party in CSAvatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @harry89 have fun!!!!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Elwood, I put mine within seconds of it appearing. I used Yahoo email. I did one about 10-20 mins later for my niece and had it go to her hotmail. She got a confirmation within an hour. I got mine exactly 12 hours later even though I registered first. Just have to checlk it up to Errol. You'll get it eventually. As a network administrator I can just about gauruntee the email exchange server got overloaded. They knew this would happen which is why we were given 48 hours to validate the registration once we got the email. They don't want everybody overloading the servers by all of us validating at once. They're sending them out in timed quantities so as not to cause an overload. You can bank on that.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Elwood most people who used Yahoo had to wait a really long time most said that anywhere between 11-14 hrs after they submitted their info. It took me about 13hrs b4 I got mine. @lovewizards I didn't even think about that! She did say that so maybe that is the whole thing we should have been paying attention to.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: It's been almost seventeen hours now and I'm kinda worried about not being able to respond to the email. Pretty soon I'll be going to my grandmother's home in rural Texas and I'll be there for several days possibly without internet access. If I don't get it tonight or tomorrow I have no way of knowing whether I'll be able to check my inbox if it comes Tuesday or Wednesday. That's why I'm so anxious and hoping almost against hope that I'll get it now. I don't fancy starting over :pAvatar ImageElwood J.

Hopefully with the fact that we were 1st and had all the issues we did you guys will be better off and get it faster!Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @elwood well the second clue hasnt gone up yet.........Avatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: I told myself that I wouldn't do this, that I was a normal sane person who could resist the temptation. I lied, I lied horribly. Yeah, I'll be up with the rest of them, refreshing the page over and over...Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @ginnylove101 I reccomend making a hotmail or gmail account, only takes a few minutes to do either, and by all accounts you'll get a response by email within an hour. Errol Mail, formerly known as Yahoo Mail has turned out to be stress inducing!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: It will be after midnight on the west, central and east coast when the next clue goes up because then it will officially be a new day meaning Aug 1Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @ _Muggle_Witch_ see my tips to staying up! Get the coffee and yoohoo choclate drinks and the ritz crackers ready!Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @gecopeland they were funny;)Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Apple slices are working nicely to keep me up :-)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: I just ate a big whopping bowl of Jambalaya....I definitely won't be able to stay awake to help you guys tonight, but I do wish you the bestest of luck! I think in about an hour that jambalaya is going to knock me out!Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @mugglewitch I said the same thing yesterday but now I am up with the rest of you lol. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long tonight.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @gecopeland I know the feeling! I'm not sleepy I'm sure I will be up for a while to keep you guys up to date. Would you all like for me to post on this page if I see it go up?Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: C of S practice question: How many OWLS does Ron suggest that Tom Riddle could have been awarded for special services to the school?Avatar Imageprathouse says: I would never suggest this as I'm just thinking out loud ;P but a quick Google search for the COS pdf may lead to an interesting result and if one had the desire, one could use Adobe Reader's search function for "owl" (if the clue is indeed owl-related) and begin to brush up on one's owl-related knowledge. Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @leolady23 yes please!!! The more eyes we got on this the better!!!!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: LOL Ok. I already have the pottermore page up. I will keep refreshing it and keep a tab up for Leaky.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I hope it comes soon i need to sleeeeeeeeeeeep! I'm tired, I'm not going to last long. I'm gonna try, 'cause I didn't get the first clue in time. Wish me luck!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: @FlooFeather, i don't recall Ron actually mentioning that in the book, that must have been from the movie. In the book he just mentions he recognized the name from the diary on a trophy he had to polish alot of times in detention and that the trophy was for finding out who opened the chamber of secrets.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: wait ...400 comes to mindAvatar Imagegecopeland says: cept now i remember 400 was the points gryffindor got to win the hosue cup, so thats not either...Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Yeah I have PotterMore up too... I really hope it comes up right after midnight ESTAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Who knows how I can stay up longer, I know it's early but I didn't get sleep last night. I am not going to last long. Good luck to everyone who is trying! Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: Actually, he does mention it in the book. I'm not sure about the movie. It's not right after he returns from detention--it's later, after Harry gets the journal and wonders about Tom Riddle.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Hey is there something on the website that says 'refresh' I can't find it...Avatar Imagegecopeland says: nope you have to manually click your refresh button in your browserAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Oh I just read what I said over, and I sound stupidAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Harry89 it wont be up after midnight est, @ginnygirl just refresh your page the way you would any other page.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Oh I just read what I said over, and I sound stupidAvatar Imagetim_2006 says: Do they aim at releasing the clue towards a certain time zone each day?Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @leolady23 Hey one can only hope!!! Lol Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @tim_2006 no but it will be so that every time zone is offically in the same day.Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: “Could’ve been anything,” said Ron. “Maybe he got thirty O.W.L.s or saved a teacher from the giant squid. Maybe he murdered Myrtle; that would’ve done everyone a favor…” So it looks like 30 could be another possible answer.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Harry I know but I pretty sure they are going to wait until every time zone is passed midnight so it will be Aug 1st and that will offically be the 2nd day of the challenge. I know it suxs but that's only fair to do it like that.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Yeah it's still not midnight. Yawn Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Ginnygirl423 are you going to make it hun?Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @percyisboss: 30 is correct! It didn't say Riddle actually received them, just a crazy suggestion by Ron, but OWL-related.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Leolady23 I don't think so, but one can try.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Less than 10 minutes to midnight on the east coast... Maybe they'll put it up around 8:00am EST?Avatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: I think the adrenaline is what will keep us upAvatar Imagetim_2006 says: It is Monday the 1st everywhere. I am certain at the moment.Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @Leolady23: I'm not sure having every time zone on the same day is correct. For example, the first clue was released about 4 a.m. EST July 31, meaning it was only 10 p.m. July 30 in Hawaii.Avatar Imagetim_2006 says: Got my chamber of secrets book beside me here at my desktop computer.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Tim_2006 Not yet! It's not midnight here....Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: Please be 12pm EST time.Avatar Imagetim_2006 says: Where are you located?Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: DCAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: Hmm. I forgot Hawaii was so far behind on time. Perhaps I should say it needs to be that way in most places. Who knows how they are gonna do this. LOL I would say for sure tho it will more than likely be after midnight on the west coast when they do the next clue. It could go at any moment since it says on the Insider website the clues will be released at different times.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Now I am set, ready to tackle the night. Got the bathroom next to me, pottermore pulled up, my CS book, and a glass of water.Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: DCAvatar ImageMirdan says: Hey, ya'll! I'm probably not going to be as religious at refreshing as you all, but I figure my four month old keeping me up all night might as well be put to good use! But it's only 9pm here...so I wasn't going to start watching Pottermore yet. Are you saying that it's been 24 hours since the first clue?Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Midnight EDT and no joy so far. My computer is located in a shared bedroom, so I can't stay up all night pushing the refresh button over and over. I wish you all luck.Avatar Imagetim_2006 says: jiggery pokery sqwiggly wiggly hocus pocusAvatar ImageHarry89 says: Looks like it's gonna be a really long night!!!Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: Im Located just outside of DC.Avatar ImageOnegirlband says: Still 3 more hours until Midnight... Then the real waiting begins! Hopefully I won't fall asleep tonight!! Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Yeah and I need help staying up!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Onergirlband, did you say 3 more HOURS!! Boy, it is going to be a long night for me...Avatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: you guys are what's keeping me up. The reading and talking does it. Thank-you all, and good luck wherever you are :)Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @Ginnygirl423 So do I that's why I'm on here! Once the clue is up we should post the answer here to help each other out. Avatar Imageprathouse says: If they really wanted to be fair they would shoot for a 8-9am appearance on the west coasts of each "major" country/continent and then with any remaining days just randomly throw up the clues at different times.Avatar Imagecamsammom1 says: how many still waiting for confirmation e-mail from yesterday? Avatar ImageDVM2B says: It's getting close to twenty-four hours since the last clue came out. I am a nervous wreck. Really, this is killing me and I don't know how I'll sleep for the next week. Also, I have surgery tomorrow and since I'll be awake for it I'm going to monitor pottermore with my phone and have my CoS book with me.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: hey guys im sorry i havent been actively posting but i was watching tv:) its not very late over here but im on pacific time...... hopefully it will go up soon!!! @harry89 i agree!~ for those of us who r dedicated enough to stay up we should all figure out what the clue is together and then all solve it together!!!Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: There was someone on here about a hr ago still waiting for a confirmation e-mail. Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @prathouse that would make the most sense but who knows what they have in storeAvatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: hmm i feel bad for themAvatar Imagetim_2006 says: What is the web address you are suppose to add the answer to?Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I think. We're going to have to wait till midnight on the west coast (pacific time) that's around the time it came out last night right?Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: quill.pottermore.com/Avatar Imageprathouse says: quill.pottermore.com/Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: i feel so sleepy and it not even my regular bedtime yet!!!!!!!!!!! my problem is that its getting close to being the 2nd here and i dont want to stay up all night because they r putting it up on the uk time zone only to find that there gonna put it up later in the day!! i cant afford to lose all this sleep!!!! someone help!! i mean if they r gonna put if up tonight then i will stay up but if its not going up till the morning....Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: LOL I think they know if they give us a time then everything will go crazy like it did the day they made the announcement!Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @ginnylove101 they don't have a set time just that t will be up at different times each dayAvatar Imagetim_2006 says: OH COME ON AND ADD IT ALREADYAvatar Imagecamsammom1 says: I am still waiting for my e-mail. If I have not gotten it by the time day 2 clue comes on I will try again with another address.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Thanks guys, I am surprised at myself that I am not asleep. I think you gys are a big help. And also Harry89, your right. We are al HP fans here staying up with each other. We can help each other out.Avatar ImageOnegirlband says: I hope we don't have to wait for the HAST time zone... It's only 6:30pm there right now... Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @ginnylove101 that's the thing no one knows when it will go up. I missed out yesterday thinking it would be up till the morning... I was wrong... Horribly horribly wrong!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I was so stupid yestrday, and forgot all about this. So if I make it in tonight, i would be SO happy!Avatar Imagetim_2006 says: How many hour and minutes has it been since the last clue was posted? Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: @camsammom did you use a yahoo account? Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: hey....i thought it said some where that if you couldn't get through this way you could still register but you wouldn't get on this October...does anyone know what that web address is? Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: hey....i thought it said some where that if you couldn't get through this way you could still register but you wouldn't get on this October...does anyone know what that web address is? Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: sorry guys:) i just hope it will go up soon!!Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: where oh where is our CoS clue? Avatar Imageyooglegoo says: Didn't the first clue go up at midnight pacific time? Avatar Imageyooglegoo says: Oh and you don't get your email til after the entire quill challenge.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Sorceress25 umm i didnt know that all i heard was that if u werent able to get on early it would be free to everybody in oct.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Sorceress25 It's the same web address. Everyone just want's to get in now because they don't wan't to wait till October.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @yooglegoo I think so...Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @yooglegoo i dont know if this is right but i heard that it was up at 3am in the u.s. and 8am int he ukAvatar Imageprathouse says: Closer to 1:30 pst.

I'm planning on staying awake all morning......and I would be the happiest person if this happened! Let's just hope! Good Luck to all that try today! Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I think Ginnylove is close. Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Yea I think it was around that time. As for the whole thing about the registration thing there are only a certain amount allowed each day and then they have to close registration so that when it is all done it equals 1million ppl.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: okay....this is really dumb, but i thought i had the address but it keeps saying that its not a known address....maybe i saved it wrong, what is it? Avatar Imageyooglegoo says: Thanks. It's time for a shift switch now...Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: http://quill.pottermore.com/245Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: You can just go to Pottermore.com the clue comes up there. Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: http://quill.pottermore.com/245Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: okay....is that the same way to register? thank you for answering my questions...i've been without a computer and havent been able to really 'talk' to anyone about it so i feel kind of lostAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Sorceress25 you go to Pottermore for the clue then when you have the answer you go and put in this http://quill.pottermore.com/ with the answer after that / and then it will take you to another page and you follow the directions there.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: You know guys, I thought this was going to be a long, boring, tired night for me. But you guys are keeping me copany, and it's fun. I hope to be able to do this tomorrow. Thanks for being so fun to talk to. Good luck!Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: okay awesome...thanks for your help. i really appreciate it.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: ok so i searched the web and i came up with some answers as to when the first clue went up! i will keep looking for some more specific answers! UPDATE: Registrations for Day 1 are closed! We'll let you know when the next batch opens up tomorrow (Monday). We do not know exactly what time they will open up. Pottermore unveiled the first beta sign-up clue at just past 4 AM ET time. for anyone in the US that is unsure the pottermore clue for today went up at around 2:50am and closed at around 3am. central time? wisconsin time. dunno how time zones work. About 4 am central time. Clues will post randomly throughout the day. I got in last night! But I had to keep refreshing the browser for like 10 hours till the clue popped up! You have 6 more days and six more chances! In the meantime hang out and refresh your HP knowledge by playing trivia on Mugglenet, or read up on the second book (the next clue will be about the second book!) Or go to the HP wiki! Everything you ever wanted to know! Good luck! first clue went up at 9am london! but each day is diff time so the site won't get crashed with overwhelming users. Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Your welcome ginnygirl423. My sis stayed up with me for the announcement and we geeked out together and had fun so I am more than happy to stay up and keep you guys company!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @ginnylove101 hmmmmm...... interesting... LolAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: A little info I picked up for you guys. "Only a certain number of people each day are allowed to "use" their Magic Quill clue for registration, roughly 150 thousand a day- for seven days- to total to one million users at the end of the challenge (August 6th 2011).[8]. On July 31st, around 9 am GMT, Pottermore released the first clue"Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: came up with some more... 9am uk. I'm in EST too, and it came about 4am, but for the next clues the time hasn't been revealed yet. I don't actually know if they're going to say, though. I hear it was posted at 3:55 am EST. =) I don't know if they'll do that again for day 2, but it was supposed to come out sometime after 8 AM in England (5 hours ahead of EST), so about an hour later isn't too much. Good luck trying for day 2! =) On July 31st, around 9 am GMT, Pottermore released the first clue: "How many owls are on the Eeylops Owl Emporium sign? Multiply by 49". The answer could be found in the first book, in the chapter titled "Diagon Alley."[9] The correct answer was 245, as there were 5 breeds of owl.[10] Registration for the first day closed two hours after the post.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: and some more..... Yes many people have figured it out. The clue came out around 3-4 a.m. us time! Last night it came out 3am Eastern time, but I've heard that it's going to be a different time every day :\Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: sorry thats all i could find for now.....Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: hope that helps..Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I'm SO excited!!

It's just this waiting game is crazy! If we didn't have to be so worried about trying to hurry up and registering then ppl could sleep.

Good luck to everyone!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: look it up "tab mix plus" after you install it click alt and click tools-->then "tab mix plus options"--->Menu---->Tab Context Menu--->make sure "reload every" is checked then right click on pottermore and then scroll over reload every then click 15 seconds (: Hope this helps out a fellow potter fanAvatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: just random speculation websites. some people figure it would be more reasonable, but it sucks for the ones who stay up all night, like us!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I love Snape Ginny, Neville, Hagrid and McGonagallAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Oh yeah! I love Dobby!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: @RM Weasley GOOGLE IS YOUR FRIEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imageprathouse says: Maybe a few people can create a gmail account and pick up an extra pottermore account after they register themselves. I doubt it would be hard to find someone to give it to. Just don't be a git and try to sell it on Ebay! FYI I got in yesterday but I might pick up another one to give to the less fortunate. :)Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Hey, I'm wondring, is anyone going to do this tomorrow? I might be back, but are some of you guys comeing back?Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: Wait, if @prathouse is counting Fred and George as one, can I add Lucius to my list?

I am hearing songs again......Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Ginnygirl I'm pretty sure I will be up 2morrow night 2. So if you want I could help you out then.Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: some people are selling for like 1 million bucks..it's ridiculous...theres nothing wrong with giving accounts away to people who can't stay up because of important reasons, but some people are just making random accounts either for money or just because they can, which pisses me off because there are only so many slots available.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Ginnygirl423 prob. not....:( my parents wont let me do this again which is why im worried about the fact that it may not go up till the morning!!Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: The ebay thing makes me upset. I didn't even think of that until you mentioned it.Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: @Ginnygirl423 I would love to come back tomorrow! Especially because it looks like I might not make it tonight.

Have you checked your junk folder? Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Most of the ebay bids are fake people that haven't made any purchases are making bids of 2k+Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: @perkinsII thank you. i figured it out!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: @Sorceress25 np makes reading these posts way easier to read when you don't have to click refresh all the time on pottermoreAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I have. Still absolutely nothing. It is starting o drive me crazy. Avatar Imageprathouse says: Yeah @ginnylove I'll be up for another 2 hours probably. Even though I registered yesterday I would feel remiss in my duties as an HP obsessive if I didn't at least try to see the second clue and answer it. Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: @Ginnygirl if you rest your eyes you will wake up after the clue is already goneAvatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Ginnygirl423 no no no dont leave us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Some dolt posted one on ebay for Ten Million US now.....Where's Snape when you need em.Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: @ginnylove mine either. i told them i would just need tonight and i have something to do at 10:30Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Hey just a curious question since I am wondering how you get points. Plus another tip if you have twitter get echofon it will notify you when a tweet comes out and if you follow sites that tell you the answer of the clue it could help if you are a complete idiot and don't know how to use googleAvatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: the people selling them are major douche bags and anyone that actually purchases one is a total moron it is a free sight and will be free to all in October.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Not including duplicates I count about 50 new Pottermore accounts up for sale...these morons are going to ruin it for everybody.Avatar ImageRM Weasley says: @percyisboss thanks this is really helpful!Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @sweetmisgivings lol i have to be somewhere at 10!!! my parents r gonna kill me!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: I have a feeling im going to be at my laptop in another 5 hrs watching my dad leave for work.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: i am just joining a bunch of random groups!!!!! there r some pretty awesome ones out there!!!Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: @elwood yeah thats why imma use hotmail...but you should get email within 48 hours.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: oh boy....my husband just yelled at me because my alarm keeps going off...i wonder how long i can keep it up before he throws me out...he can only take my potter obsession so far lolAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: @ginnylove just drink some coffee or an energy drink in the morning Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Maybe Melissa should tell Jo that Deatheaters have invaded Ebay selling off Pottermore accounts. I would love to see some legal action against those bums. Can you imagine trying to go up against the kinda lawyers she can afford? I shutter at the thought.Avatar ImageOnegirlband says: One more hour till midnight! Could be a long night yet... Going to get supplies :)Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Some of the best quality videos I have seen for the size (: 1080p HD http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6443393/Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Where o where is my pottermore clue...Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @perkinsll lol i am actually more worried about my parents:) but o well i need to quite complaining;) its not ur guys prob.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @sweetmisgivings Yeah. I'm totally using my gmail, but if I get the Yahoo one soon I'll delete the other.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: urrrrr. Forseing myself to get up, so tired. If I don't get this clue, I will be so sad.Avatar Imageprathouse says: @gecopeland The only way to fight those gits is for everyone honest to register a 2nd account and give it away. Apparently some people feel the alternative to not being a beta tester is to purchase an account from someone.Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Sweetmisgivings good idea to use something than Errol/yahoo cause you will go crazy. @Elwood, I really am surprised you haven't gotten your email because a lot of ppl with Yahoo are saying they finally got theirs. That is really weird! Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: Maybe they're fake? A scam to get money, and they're not really accounts? I just can't bare the thought of all those wasted accounts, i mean, who would buy them... ive gone to school with no sleep whatsoever, so i can handle a few hours of drivers ed...my worry is that it will be posted while im gone! that would be a total fml.Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @gecopeland I'm sure it won't be long before that happensAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: @ginnylove they never have to know when you got on it could have been 6am for all they know ;)Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Ginnygirl423 im sorry i wish i could help!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Calling all Pottermore people waiting to get your free account...log into ebay whilst you wait and help me report all 50 of the idiots selling pottermore accounts. It is against ebay rules for being beta related software accounts. If i have to I'll nail all 50 of em myself. Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Where is my clue!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagegecopeland says: 5 down 45 to go....Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @PerkinsII ahaha i wish but they r VERY over protective.....Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Sweetmisgivings @Leolady23, I mean totally right? It's really bothering me. I'm worried about it. Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: It makes me mad that we are here waiting for the clue to be in. For lots of us it is really late. And people are just giveing out accounts? It's an upsetting thought.Avatar Imagepercyisboss says: I'm heading to bed but, I'll be continuing to reload Pottermore.com throughout the night on my iTouch. Unfortunately, commenting takes a while on it so I'll be signing off for now. Thanks for the conversation while I waited. I wish you all the best of luck.Avatar ImageOxie says: $10,000,000 for an account. XDAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: lol why report if your a dumbass enough to buy an account for a beta service for harry potter and you ACTUALLY expect them to give it to you reguardless of the priceAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: ByeAvatar ImageHarry89 says: That 10,000,000 account has to be a scam...Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Yawn. I got to hit the hay myself. I can't wait much longerAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: Ya that is a insane number.Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: ^ LOL obviouslyAvatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @percyisboss ok talk to u later:)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Why report? So ebay will discontinue the listings. When this sort of thing happens, it causes the comapnies that run promos like these to pullt he plug....that's why.Avatar Imageprathouse says: @ginnygirl if it's any consolation I'm sure the remaining 5 days are less likely to be in the middle of the night U.S. time.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Uh oh we're loosing people!!!!Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Ginnygirl423 ok nigt night!! god u guys r dropping like flies:)Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: It's only 2:14 here but in London it's 7...man. that sucks. last night it opened at about 4am EST os in london it would have been about 9, which it bad for the people who stayed up all night. i have seen people trolling on twitter talking about how americans shouldn't even get the opportunity for early access at all, because it originated in england. pretty harsh, considering americans greatly contribute to the fanbase....JKR is scottish, anyway.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Another reason to report is to show your loyalty to JK Rowling for everything she put into Harry Potter. It was her birthday yesterday afterall, so if ya don't wan tto help, so be it, my birthday gift to her then.Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: How do you earn points? Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: Sorry it's taking so long for the clue to come up!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Well I hope your right. I am getting mad now where is the CLUE!!!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Well I hope your right. I am getting mad now where is the CLUE!!!Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: i really don't know how much longer i can stay up....my eyes are drooping....ugh!!!Avatar Imagegingerfan says: Hey all! Just wanted to spread a little hope among those who haven't received their validation email yet. I found the quill a bit after 4am this morning(I'm south of DC, so 5 hours behind London), received my username and waited for my validation email...and waited...and waited...I was registered at the same time as my son, but while he got his email right away, I was not feeling the Pottermore love. I was a bit(okay, a lot) disappointed to say the least as the hours went by and nothing, BUT just about 45 minutes ago, I received the validation email and was confirmed for early access to Pottermore. It took 21.5 LOOOONG hours, but Errol finally found his way to me! So, keep checking your emails witches and wizard and I bet you too will get some good news. As a side note, I really like my username and am so happy I don't have to pick another. :)Avatar Imagegecopeland says: 20 reported....30 to go.Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: The best way to stay up is to listen to awesome obnoxious music really loud http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAYL5H46QnQAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: i got to go guys. Good luck! It was so nice talking to youAvatar Imagestenojoz says: I've been reading all your posts, haven't been posting myself. But since I went to bed a 1/2 hr before it was posted yesterday...booooo me! I'm staying up tonight, even if it is *ugh* 8 in the morning. @gecopeland I'm going to help report those mo-mos on Ebay...ridiculous. Something to keep me awake!Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: i hope this clue comes soon!!!!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Bye better luck tomorrow ginnygirlAvatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @gecopeland thats really great of u!!! Avatar ImageOxie says: I love that song. "THEN I THREW IT ON THE GROUND! YOU MUST THINK I'M A JOKE!"Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: @gingerfan did you use yahoo?Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @Ginnygirl423 lol nice talking to u too!!!!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @stenojoz same thing happened to me I passed out about 1/2 hour before the clue went up. That's why I'm sticking it out today...Avatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: I'm so sleepy but I will stay up as late as I possiably can! haha this is almost insanityAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: Cya GinnyGirl1423Avatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: I'm so sleepy but I will stay up as late as I possiably can! haha this is almost insanityAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: @Oxie FUCK YES ANOTHER PERSON WHO THINKS THELONEYISLAND IS BADASSAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: I think ppl wouldn't be dropping like flies if they weren't staying up so long. Seems like ppl didn't get much sleep after the 1st clue came out and were trying to get info and go about their day and now they are trying to stay up again!Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: @hermionegranger100 hahaha almost?? this IS insanity!!!!!!!!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Another song for people that are the boss or who want to be the boss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NisCkxU544cAvatar ImageHarry89 says: Kneed my clue already!!!!Avatar Imagemmayes574 says: yay i get to get to go in earlyAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Leolady23 I agree. I slept from 7:30 this morning to well after 3-4:00. I'm about to drop but I'm drinking cup after cup of tea.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: lol my only prob right now is that the chair i am sitting in is as hard as rock!! i keep on bruising my self on it!!!!!!!Avatar ImageOnegirlband says: I am another one who fell asleep a half hour before the clue was released... I woke up an hour later to see the "Sorry, Day 1 registration is now closed" memo... Booo! I am determined to make it through tonight!!Avatar Imagec.potter says: Im fighting to stay up. I WILL do this.Avatar ImageDVM2B says: Hoping we get the clue soon and I can sleep after surgery tomorrow... Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: I sit in an office chair (: They are comfyAvatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: @ginnylove101 haha it just means we are true hard core fansAvatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: @ginnylove101 haha it just means we are true hard core fansAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Ok I reported EVERY single one of those Pottermore accounts for sale on Ebay...all 50+ of them. Happy Belated Bday JK.Avatar ImageOxie says: Awwww yeah, Perkinsll. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE FLOOR!"Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: What flavor tea Elwood?Avatar Imageprathouse says: @ginnylove for heaven's sake get a pillow or something! lol I'm secretly so glad I don't HAVE to stay up tonight. I hope everyone that needs it tonight gets it.Avatar Imagec.potter says: Brilliant. Will the reporting do any good? Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: im glad i have you guys to talk too. i honestly don't know what i would have been doing if i wasnt watching this 'chat'. i just hope the clue comes before i have to go to work. i don't get service there that well and its a summer camp...no computers....fingers crossed! You guys are awesome to talk too, so that makes it all better!!! Avatar ImageDVM2B says: For sale? That is so wrong...Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Note for anyone deciding to help report the Pottermore accounts for sale on Ebay....after about 20 or so you have to start putting in a 6 digit verification number everytime you report one about 3 times per report. What a pain....Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: SWALLOW SADNESS...LIKE A BOSSAvatar Imagegecopeland says: @c.potter it will absolutely do good. Selling log in information to a beta violates the copyright and is against Ebay rules and punishable by law in the US and most other countries.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @ECoastPotter Earl Grey, with milk and sugar of course.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @ECoastPotter Earl Grey, with milk and sugar of course.Avatar Imagec.potter says: Hate those verification numbers...Avatar ImageEgor says: It seems as though some people yesterday knew around what time the clue was going to be posted. Does anyone have any idea for today? I'm thinking it's going to be later (as in quite a few hours from now), but that's only a guess.Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: lol its happy birthday to the groundAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Not to mention selling an account to a beta violates the end user agreement (EULA) of the beta in question. I bet all of those accounts get voided once Sony or JK catches wind of it.Avatar Imagehermionegranger100 says: @Egor im guessing the same time as last since they are suppose to be posted every 24 hoursAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Egor, none of us knew what time, we sat, drank copius amounts of caffiene, made many scarey trips to the bathroom in fear we would miss it and got sore fingers from clicking the refreshbutton and then sat in angst for hours waiting on our validation emails.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: I wish you all good luck and pray you dont' get stuck with a delivery from Errol as I did. It took 12 hours and for others took 23 !Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Something loud just woke me up, I must have forgot to shut my laptop down... I missed the clue didn't I. What was it?Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Something loud just woke me up, I must have forgot to shut my laptop down... I missed the clue didn't I. What was it?Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Anybody want to watch harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2 for free? http://www.watchthisfree.com/movies/2011/harry-potter-and-the-deathly-hallows-part-2/watch/ DON'T DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE IT SAYS.

Just click the play button in the top left part of the video then after that click the one in the middle enjoy (:Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: @Elwood nice combo, loose tea are bagged?Avatar ImageEgor says: @gecopeland, I have mine auto-refreshing, so no sore finger for me; a simple html meta tag does the trick.Avatar ImageDVM2B says: So, I am freaking out because I didn't make it in last night, will today be my day?Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @hermionegranger it will be a different time today. They don't want you to get comfortable and say oh I know it's gonna be up at this time and then the site crashes again. Most people who stayed up last night had no idea what time just that it would be sometime on July 31st. I was under the thought that because the announcement went online at the time it did that it would be a good idea to stay up.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: bad form Perkins, and Ginnygirl, you didn't miss anything yet.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Hey, guys something just woke me up, what was the clue?Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Wait are we allowed to post links???? Nobody has said we aren't allowed to but are weAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @ECoastPotter bagged. Loose tea is hard to find in Texas.Avatar ImageOxie says: Double posts!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: No clue yet Ginny Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: bad form??????Avatar Imagegecopeland says: You aren't sposed to post links that are in regards to exploitation of copyrighted material....not to mentiont he exploitation of material who's creator frequents this site. Avatar Imagegingerfan says: @sweetmisgivings I did use Yahoo. I had my gmail account ready to go for tonight/today's clue if I hadn't received my email by the time it came out.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Really? I didn't miss anything? Score! I feel ready to take on the rest of the night! Maybe I will get the clue!Avatar ImageEgor says: Leaky could do with an IRC channel.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Hey did Ginnylove drop out?Avatar Imagegecopeland says: If i had to hedge a bet, I'd say you guys have at least another 2 hours and 15 mins wait ahead of you before the next clue, so watch a dvd of harry potter 2! get yourself prepared!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: ........Oh yeah I guess that makes sense sorry if I offended any harry potter fans but no worries I have seen it 3 times legitimatelyAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I dunno how much longer I can hold up. So. Tired. I'll try, but I expect I'll pass out infront of the computer/Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: I just realized that I probably got reported for that........ ;( Avatar Imagegecopeland says: If you guys would like I can offer you a teamspeak IP that you can get on and talk using mics or just type and chat while you wait. Just don't misbehave on there...Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Misbehaving meaning......... ;)Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I kinda like the chat room vibe we got going on here lolAvatar Imagegecopeland says: If enough of you are interested int hat idea, you can go download Teamspeak3 and I'll post the IP in a few mins. I admin that server so don't get me in trouble if you decide you want to use it!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @Elwood you should get some rest and if you don't get an email later today do clue number 3.Avatar Imagegecopeland says: misbehaving meaning posting exploited copyright material for example ;o)Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: I will ddos the !$%$ out anybody who posts the ip don't belive me try me *cough* Low Orbit Ion Cannon *cough*Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: i'm goona pass out againAvatar Imagegecopeland says: 184.82.181.176 is the Teamspeak3 IP if you guys want to use it to keep each other wake, you can talk on mics, or chat in the channel. Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @Leolady23 I won't be able to try for the third clue. I'm going to my grandmother's house on Tuesday so I need to get this done and sleep tomorrow night.Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: As insane as this pottermore beta registration is, it's not quite as crazy as Trafalgar Square was when I was in London a few weeks ago at the red carpet event. People stayed overnight for up to a week. Though I didn't get close enough to meet the actors, I did get to see DH2 a week later when it opened to the pubic--my seat was in the Royal Circle at the Odeon Leicester Square Cinema where it premiered--so much fun with an audience that was enthusiastic and appreciative.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: how much longer do you think we have to wait for the dang clue?Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I think I'm gonna stay on here... I'm using my iPhone to stay on this websiteAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: @Floofeather12 do you live in the Uk?Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: you got this @ginnygirl423...just keep thinking about the end result!!! you've got this!!Avatar Imageblame-the -nargles says: yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: idk...i'm probably completely wrong, but i think for some reason its not gonna come till like 5....idk y....i'm seeing 5 or 7....Avatar ImageOnegirlband says: It just hit midnight here on the west coast... game on!! Happy Aug. 1st everyone :)Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: No, but I do go over there every other summer. I took a class at Oxford at Christ Church College this summer--got to eat in the Hall three times a day :). Took lots of pics/videos of the stairs and toured the Bodleian for more HP filming sites/ Avatar Imagec.potter says: Yeah, @ginnygirl423! Hang in there! What would Harry do?Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Hahaha only a matter of time now!!!Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Hahaha only a matter of time now!!!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: @sorceress25 That could be the case Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: LOL- Thanks guys your being awesome to meAvatar Imagestenojoz says: I'm sure hoping so. I could prob. make it to like 5....but God...I have to take care of my 1 year old tomorrow. If it's like 8 or 9 like the UK yesterday, I'm totally screwed!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I bet you 3:30 ish if not, i'm toastAvatar ImageHarry89 says: @sorceress25 I think you may be rightAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: Is Giny101 MIA. Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I figure I'll be able to hold it till like five or six. Six is seriously pushing it. I hope it happens soon.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: @leolady23 i don't know why...im probably completely wrong lol...i hope its sooner tho...i keeping fighting my eyes to stay openAvatar Imagestenojoz says: I'm pretty sure she went to bed.Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: Most people have already leftAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I didn't go to bed, I'm in bed. I'm fighting it this is pushing it for me. I can hold till 3:40 and thats itAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I didn't go to bed, I'm in bed. I'm fighting it this is pushing it for me. I can hold till 3:40 and thats itAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: Ginny101 went to bed.Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: This is about the time my eye's closed yesterday?Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: I'm still here. Sorcerers Stone over now onto CoS.Avatar Imageprathouse says: Yeah I think Ginnylove is in the Room of Requirement. Definitely unplottable.Avatar ImageEgor says: My guess is that they'll do them all at different times to try and cover all of the time zones around the world. So since it was around 4:15 AM EST yesterday it'll probably be at least an hour and a half away from that, so my guess is that at this point, todays clue won't get posted until at least 5:45 AM EST, but more than likely later than that.Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: I was hoping it would come up at 3:00 EST for those of you who haven't registered yet, but that didn't happen. All one can do is watch and wait--unfortunately, it could be less than an hour or 12 hours. It was worth it last night to become one of "the lucky few," so keep trying, even if it's not tonight. Avatar Imagelpierich says: am I the only fool who has to work tomorrowAvatar Imagec.potter says: When it gets posted...I'll be ready.Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @Egor I hope not lol.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: @egor I think you're right... I'm still not taking chances tho...Avatar Imagestenojoz says: @lpierich I took the day off not knowing what was going to be happening. Good thing...since I fell asleep last night.Avatar ImageRadiance says: Pottermore email just came in and I registered like fifteen minutes into yesterday's clue time! Stupid Errol-esque Yahoo. But I wish the best of luck to all you hoping for getting in tonight! I'm very happy its only 12:18 over here in California. I don't know how you East Coasters are still up! Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: i have work tomorrow....your not the only one ;-PAvatar ImageDVM2B says: It better be soon, I'm dying here.Avatar ImageCathrynOCamdentowne says: I've been reading the thread from#1 and finally got to the end. Am wondering 2 things -why I had a glass of wine instead of coffee and if most of us shouldn't be in the hospital wing having our heads examined ? I don't have to GO to work tomorrow, but, I definitely have a lot of work to get done. By the way, if Floofeather12's still there ...you made me so nostalgic! I spent a summer in London & Odeon Leicester Square is my favorite theater in the world, ever. Best seats-front row center balcony. I really miss London -if you can get homesick for a place that isn't "home" I qualify.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I'm drifting. I closed my eyes it was 3:15 i open them and it's 3:23Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: Its Defiantly tuff being on the East Coast.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: i'm a night owl....however, i was very busy this weekend so not must sleep...when its time for work i'm not gonna be a happy camper....Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: if its in the next few hours i'll be good seeing as its 5.22pm here in Qld Australia... good luck for those of you who are fighting sleep! Avatar ImageEgor says: I'm heading to sleep — probably a short sleep; putting all of my cookies into hoping that the clue won't be posted yet when I wake up.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Lucky.Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: how do you think the english feel...its about 8:30 thereAvatar Imagec.potter says: Keep fighting East Coast people.Avatar ImageMagicRiver206 says: Am I the only one who still hasn't received an email?? :((Avatar Imageskylercharm says: Moutian time is okay since it just past one. I have a busy day tommorow so i hope it's not too late.Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: @queggs, if you caught yesterday's clue, then no. Me too. I'm still waiting for mine. I'm hoping the new clue comes out soon. I have to sleep sometime.Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: @queggs what email do you mean? Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: At least you can it breakfast, I'm hungry and all the lights are out in my house. I can't eat till it's light out!! Once i'm done with this clue, I am going to sleep till noonAvatar Imageallprostar31 says: I doubt the clue will be ouut before noon Avatar Imagec.potter says: Come on @Ginnygirl423! Keep fighting!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Who's still in it? Avatar Imagestonebehr says: My husband and I both are still waiting to get our email... we're in california, got in fairly soon after the clue showed up, and registered... with yahoo emails. *sigh* Hoping the email will get here in time to validate.Avatar Imagestonebehr says: My husband and I both are still waiting to get our email... we're in california, got in fairly soon after the clue showed up, and registered... with yahoo emails. *sigh* Hoping the email will get here in time to validate.Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: man, im feel pretty uneasy about these 7am EST rumors...i mean, i can do it, but i dont want to...and i feel dumb for staying up all night when i could have just set my alarm.Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @ginnygirl423 I amAvatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: i fell asleep and i cant believe my luck, still have a chance!Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @CathrynOCamdentowne: Yes, that's where I sat. They charged a small fortune, over 20 pounds, but it was worth it for the experience and the memories. I like how they let you choose your seat on the web site when you buy in advance. Leicester Square itself is boarded up, being refurbished for next summer's Olympics, but it was packed just outside the cinema, people singing and dancing, taking tons of photos. I love London and have been five times now since 2003.Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: i amAvatar ImageECoastPotter says: Im still here as well.Avatar Imagestenojoz says: I'm in, but I'm dying on the vine, geez! It better not be after noon....I'll be a zombie!Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @sweetmisgivings me too lol. i really hope its not @ 7am est either if I stay up all nightAvatar Imagec.potter says: @ginnygirl423 Me tooAvatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: @ginnygirl423 im here but im trying to be good and get some exam study in while i waitAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Hang in there Ginny, you guys have 30 mins to an hour ify guess is right and the wait is over......Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I'm trying to stay in it but I don't know how long I've got left in me :pAvatar Imagegecopeland says: Everybody stand up and streeeeeeetch!!Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: im still here too ginnygirlAvatar Imageprathouse says: I'm in just for fun until Saving Private Ryan is over ;)Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: im still here too ginnygirlAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I'd feel really stupid if it's out at 7:00 am because I stayed up all night. Also i would feel horrible because of my lack of sleep. I got sick for two weeks last time I didn't get good sleep. I really hope this is worth itAvatar ImageCathrynOCamdentowne says: Oh lucky Floofeather! It's like you're in the center of that huge screen -the dragon flight must have been amazing! I haven't been there in awhile now -that's what happens when you get ideas about acreage & mortgages. Enjoy your time there-best city in the world. Avatar Imagestenojoz says: I hope you're right about the time, @gecopeland! That would make my night. But I'm in it for the loooong haul if not!Avatar ImagePerkinsII says: time to watch directors cut of chamber of secrets while I waitAvatar Imagec.potter says: We're all in this together, a bit odd to say.Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: tbh my biggest fear is that it happens between 10:30-1, that's when my drivers ed....i can do an all nighter if i have to...but if it happens after 1 ill be pretty mad too, like i stayed up for nothing! fmlAvatar ImageSorceress25 says: ugh my eyelids are drooping!!!!!! i'm trying everything!!!! Avatar ImageEillac says: Good Luck to you all!Avatar ImageLeolady23 says: I'm totally they could give a general time like saying oh the clue will be up between 8am and 10pm just so ppl aren't up like this! I feel bad for you guys! Avatar Imagegecopeland says: Could always buy an account from one of those 50 idiots on EBay I reported lolAvatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: Agreed Leolady. I wish they did that. I could be in bed right now XPAvatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @Loelady23 me too lol but don't feel too sorry for me I'm choosing to do this its not like anyone has a wand or gun to my head or anythingAvatar ImageSorceress25 says: @leolady23 yea...that would be nice...but then that would just make it easy for us....Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Thanks guys. You really are giveing me the little push I need to stay awake.Avatar Imagestenojoz says: @witbeyondmeasure, that's sooo true. We can complain and be tired, blah blah blah...but we're doing it ourselves to have this amazing early chance! Why I'm sticking with it tonight!Avatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: Man, im hungryAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: Yea this is true but I think it should be taken into consideration that people stayed up the night b4 and not having any idea what time the next clue goes up is kinda making people zombies.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: thats all i keep thinking about. the end result. if anything, i just go to bed earlier tomorrow...ask long as i get through today!Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @CathrynOCamdentowne: I'm back in the States now, but I always treasure my time there. Of course, knowing that the HP cast sat in the same seating area at the Odeon makes it even more fun. And yes, the dragon flight out of Gringotts was incredible. The audience was totally into it and tears were flowing during the Pensieve and other scenes. Of course, applause greeted the end of Bellatrix and Neville's killing of Nagini. I wish more American theatres allowed you to choose your seats, but perhaps it's not cost effective.Avatar Imagec.potter says: I wonder what house I'll get sorted into. Anything but Slytherin.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: The whole house is asleep accpect me. Maybe I can go downstairs to get foooooooood!Avatar Imageprathouse says: Well I think they could say something like, night "owls" in America will be most comfortable on day 1 and 2. White collar workers might try day 3....etc.Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: I know, I'm curious! I bet most of us will get what we want.Avatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: I'm not supposed to be up... I hope the clue is up soon, so then I can pretend I was obeying orders... thank you all for keeping me mostly awake :DAvatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @c.potter me too lol anything but slytherinAvatar ImageLeolady23 says: Ok guys. I am pretty sure I am gonna crash soon so I will set my alarm (hopefully I hear it) and check in on the site and you guys. Good luck to you all if I don't make it back in time!Avatar Imagestenojoz says: I'm about 99% positive I'll be a Hufflepuff. I don't kid myself...I know I'm one of "the rest that are left" but hey, that's okay! I own it!Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Hey guys when the clue comes up, i'll post it here. and we an help each other solve it?Avatar Imagehufflepuffluff says: @c. potter: I'd also take anything but Slytherin and be a happy Hufflepuff or content Ravenclaw. I wonder if the Pottermore "Sorting Hat" will consider your preference or simply assign.Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: if i get sorted into slytherin, my husband would never let me live it down. we have an ongoing battle. Plus my brother torments me and tells me that i will be in slytherin....so anything but slytherin!!Avatar Imageprathouse says: Remember guys the sorting hat takes your choice into consideration. ;¬)Avatar Imagewitbeyondmeasure28 says: @ginnygirl423 sounds good to meAvatar Imageginnygirl423 says: Me too. Avatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: good idea ginny Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: me tooAvatar ImageSorceress25 says: @prathouse i hope it does lolAvatar ImageElixy says: i'm not even allowed to be awake since it's just 12:58am over here. I hope they hurry up before i'm either caught or fall asleep!Avatar Imagestenojoz says: works for me too, GinnyAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: cant wait till the clue comes upAvatar Imagec.potter says: Yeah, we need to be alert. We'll solve the question together. :)Avatar ImageECoastPotter says: I like the idea as well Ginny.Avatar Imagestenojoz says: Another hour gone, another zippo on Pottermore.Avatar Image_Muggle_Witch_ says: @Elixy It's 4:01 a.m over here, and I've already been caught but I snuck back onAvatar ImageRadiance says: I think I remember Melissa on PotterCast mentioning that once you're sorted you're sorted. John then said something like, "What about choice?" and Melissa responded with something along the lines of, "Free choice is you making a new account if you want a certain house that bad." I'm so nervous that I'll somehow end up not a Ravenclaw. :PAvatar ImagePerkinsII says: Listening to Mj morning show to pass the timeAvatar ImageHarry89 says: Where the bloody heck is that clue!!!!!Avatar ImageCathrynOCamdentowne says: Floofeather -Yes, I really liked that you could choose your seats -and what to pay too, like if you're not sure about this film, maybe you go for the cheaper seats -we did some of that. The other thing is I loved the way they do revival type theaters. We went to see a Olivier festival and even got to see the original King Kong, which we'd never get to see on a theater screen here -it was amazing. Avatar ImageElwood J. Blues says: I'm worried that I'll get Slytherin. I'm a Ravenclaw at heart though, so perhaps that will win out.Avatar Imageamelia 1-2-3- says: hey guys sorry i was out for a while but i had to convince my dad i was asleep! i wont be able to comment but i will be checking back every hour!!!!!!Avatar ImageTheGrim32 says: Need sleep...Need Pottermore...Avatar ImageSorceress25 says: i really wish they would give a roundabout time so we weren't sitting up like crazy people! i have to say though, it does allow me to feel like the series isn't over. i'm definitely going to miss the midnight madness parties....both for books and moviesAvatar ImageRadiance says: @Elwood: I'm a Ravenpuff, but I mainly associate with Ravenclaw, yet I'm curious if my Hufflepuff-side will come out in Jo's test...Avatar Imageprathouse says: It's got to have some sort of a test. They wouldn't dare just randomly assign you something as important as your house like they do the usernames. Just be sure to answer as a student from your preferred house would answer.Avatar ImageHarry89 says: I hope I get Gryffindor. I hope don't get Slytherin or Hufflepuff... What the hell is a Hufflepuff anyway? Lol (I love avpm)Avatar Imageginnygirl423 says: It will come soon. But still Joe should have told us the time, cause i feel like a chickon with it's head cut offAvatar ImageSorceress25 says: did it say somewhere that the questions weren't going to be like that? that as she made them you couldn't figure out what house would say it? Avatar ImageHarry89 says: Pottermore>SleepAvatar Imagewiz witch says: I missed it :'(Avatar Imagegecopeland says: I'm a Gryffindor through and through. Why else would I still be up at this hour....I already got my account validated :P ZTo give you guys support thats why :DAvatar Imagesweetmisgivings says: im a ravenpuff, too, but i feel like a ravenclaw.Avatar ImageTheGrim32 says: Are they really going to wait for 5 EST to post the clue? Seriously, by now, I start falling asleep whenever I blink.

What's happened to my email and will I still be able to verify in time? There is a delay with verification emails going out via Yahoo!

Open up a new tab, then delete what ever is in the box at the top, for example http://pottermore.com. Whatever the answer is, add it to http://quill.pottermore.com/ and put that in the box at the top. Click search, and you will be taken to HP7 pt2 website, then click on the first photo of a quill.
