Avatar Imageallprostar31 says: I'm sure everyone has an account by now...Avatar ImageMom Weasley says: WOW it was up for almost 2 hours! Easy clue too, only difficulty was realizing you didn't have to sit through the video lol.Avatar Imagejoeys_mommy says: *Cries* I keep missing it, first I was in school and today I slept too late :( I'll try tomorrow hopefullyAvatar ImageSauvium says: I'm in! So freaking excited. I kept missing it because I was at work but I woke up early today and decided to check just in case. BAHHH! So E-X-C-I-T-E-D!!Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: Missed the timing again! Checked too early, and then checked again too late... Sigh!Avatar Imageroonwit says: joeys_mommy: note "tomorrow" is today in many cases. The window for the clue to appear starts in a bit over 8 hours time.Avatar ImageLoader Lady says: What site did it take you to?Avatar Imageallprostar31 says: @joeys_mommy & @Agripp1. Just remember that day 7's chance is actually tonight in the US. 7:30 - 10:00 PM EST. Don't miss it!Avatar Imageroonwit says: Clue 6 took you to the wizarding world of Harry Potter site, and the quill was floating around in the bottom left corner of the map you get to after the introduction video.Avatar Imageallprostar31 says: @Loader Lady: today it went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter's websiteAvatar Imagealexweasley12 says: now, i think thats a harder clue. you definitly needed the book with you for this one. or is that just me ? :PAvatar ImagePixieOwl says: The issue for some today was the fact that info regarding the books refers to the UK editions. I remember seeing that in the Pottermore blog somewhere. I managed to get in and register. I'm happy now :-) Good luck to everyone on the last attempt!Avatar Imagelovegood723 says: I wonder how many people who haven't read the books have gotten inAvatar Imagemolly43 says: The clue was easy. There are 30 chps in both books. but when I put the clue in it said to go back to the gateway and tht didn't make sense to me. plus the directions said to add the numb to the website address and hit "return". I hit "enter" on my computer- I didn't see a return. even then it didn't go smoothly. I saw the theme park through the cape. After going back and forth I finally got in. I almost missed it like Agrippa1. Good luck to those of you who really want to get in. I am so happy and relieved I got in. Avatar Imageexpectogirl says: Hey Gang-I don't want to alarm anyone but I received 2 emails for a request to change my Pottermore password that I did NOT request. I don't know if someone somewhere is trying to access my (or anyone else's) Pottermore account but I think that we Potter fans should be aware of the possibility of someone trying to do this. Again I don't want to alarm anyone but be aware of this happening. At the bottom of the email it said "If you did not request a Pottermore password reminder, please ignore this email." so I ignored it. Just remember-Constant Vigilance!Avatar ImageAgrostema says: No - not everyone. In fact - lots of people don't have accounts. Alaska time is so different. I REALLY want to get in, but my parents won't let me wake up/stay up that late. That is really not fair to say "everyone must have account by now" because not everyone can just stay up until 2:00am to get an account on Pottermore. Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: The key to not getting hacked is to use a STRONG password... Lots of numbers and letters in upper & lower case... The more random the better... And, for goodness sakes... NEVER give it to anyone under any circumstances!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Darn with the time change I forget day sevens clue goes up today! In a little more than 4 hours! Okay fingars crossed *crosses them* this is my last chance!!!Avatar ImageBandersnatch says: @Agrostema: You don't have to stay up late for the final Pottermore clue! You live in Alaska - the clue will be revealed sometime between 3:30 PM and 6 PM Alaskan Daylight Saving Time. Avatar Imageroonwit says: expectogirl: That may not be sinister. There may be someone who has a similar username to your with only the number different, and who has misremembered his or her username, can't log in as a result and so is trying to reset his or her password but still entering the wrong username while trying to do so.Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: I'm sooo happy I got in this morning,finally! Had to work all these times.Got it just before going in,9:05 it was.Was hurrying though a bit worried I wasn't going to get registered.Was easy,had my book.Was so fun to see your name under 'You are magical'!. I feel like I've been christened now haha!Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: i treid it and when i got to the magic quill page it said theres an invisibilt cloak on it?Avatar Imageroonwit says: floridianhp: I have seen reports of that happening - it may be when they are just about to close (or have just closed) registration or it is too busy.Avatar ImageKittyVD says: @Dlcohm7: I had exactly the same feeling when I saw my name in that book along with all the "classmates" :D That was really cool! Good luck to anyone trying for an account Tomorrow(I live in Europe)/Today(for those who don't). xAvatar Imagekyrstalkris says: These questions keep getting easier and easier! lOl. That's good (:Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: coolAvatar ImageWeasleyWonder says: I never got a verification email when I registered but my sis did. Does that mean I'm not really registered?Avatar Imageexpectogirl says: @roonwit-hi:) Yeah I did think at first maybe someone had a username close to mine, but then I heard a couple other people were also getting emails to reset their passwords that they did not request. So I got a little concerned and I just wanted everyone to be aware of the possibility of someone trying to use someone else's username to get in. I hope I didn't alarm anyone, I just wanted to pass it along to be careful . Gotta stand up for my Potter Peeps:)Avatar Imagepoglover says: I am not doing the right things. I've been able to get the clues twice, knew the answers, put it at the end of the pottermore.coom URL, and had no idea what to do next. What's supposed to happen? I got a Sony page, clicked the Sony link at the top border, and it took me to a sign-in page for Pottermore. I clicked to reset my password, and entered my email, but this obviously wasn't right either. Is this Jo's way of telling me I'm too dim for early access?Avatar ImageBriannaWazHere says: Me and my little sister now have an account!! Now my mommy needs to get one tonight!!! Avatar Imagepandyapple says: how long does it take for the verification email to arrive? i got my 6 clue account but still no email :(Avatar Imagepandyapple says: how long does it take for the verification email to arrive? i got my 6 clue account but still no email :(Avatar Imagepandyapple says: account ON 6th clue, not 6th account, lolAvatar Imagebeewell says: ok..it is now 7:44 p.m. EST and the page still isn't open. Gee..guess I am going to have to keep refreshing the page ever few seconds. This is my last chance and I do believe it isn't going to happen for me. Good Luck to those who haven't gotten an account yet!Avatar Imageroonwit says: pandyapple: The verification email can appear almost immediately or take several hours - not very helpful I am afraid.Avatar ImageSaskiaM says: Beewell, I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I was on vacation until about an hour ago, with no Internet access or anything... terribly painful to come home to millions of Facebook statuses going "ha! I have a Pottermore!" This is my one chance and I am sitting here... waiting... :DAvatar Imagebeewell says: Good luck Libby! Hang in there!Avatar ImageNorian says: I am also waiting Libby. Seen anything yet?Avatar ImageNorian says: GOT IT!!!Avatar Imagebeewell says: WOOHOO! I got in...finally got to register! It is very magical to see your name in the book. Can't wait for the email to come so I can go into Pottermore! Good Luck to those who haven't gotten in yet.Avatar Imagetrontech says: clue 7 is active now 8:10 pm estAvatar ImageNorian says: Yep, I just got it. Avatar Imagetrontech says: Odd...I'm on Parseltongue translator and there is no quill.Avatar ImageSaskiaM says: Trontech -- there's a banner thing at the top of the page with quills floating around; click that!Avatar Imagetrontech says: Ummm...no, there isn't. Maybe it's because they know I got in 2 days ago. PS Firefox is arguing that the translator site is untrustworthy. I'll switch to Internet explorer. Pss. I'm not trying to re-register. Just having fun seeing if I can get the quill.Avatar Imagetrontech says: Bingo. Internet Explorer got the banner with quill. Just in case anybody can't get in with Firefox. Maybe it was adblock stopping the banner.Avatar Imageroonwit says: trontech: Maybe it shares some of the wizarding world's opinion that anything that speaks parseltongue is dark and worthy of investigation.Avatar Imagemaja_chubby says: weee .. got it :D wow .. first time trying then now .. i'm in :D so glad :DAvatar Imagescottw says: I got it today! Finally! Good Luck everyone! :) I got it! Avatar ImageHermione_Rules says: Good Luck!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Oh well.... :(Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Oh well.... :(
