The Pottermore Insider blog has answered a few more questions with regards to the Magical Quill Challenge. Of particular interest might be the time frame during which the fourth clue will be posted:

So far, all the clues have appeared in the early hours of the morning in my time zone. Will this continue for the remainder of The Magical Quill challenge?
We know that Harry Potter fans around the world are taking part in the challenge, so we will be varying the times that the clues are revealed. We can tell you that tomorrow's clue (Day 4) will be released between 2.00pm and 6.00pm BST.

Additional questions are included here. For your reference 2:00 pm BST is 9:00 am EST and 6:00 am PST.

Whoop!!! I had to close my internet completely, opened again and typed http://quill.pottermore.com/112 directly into the address bar I got to a page saying ‘overwhelming response’ that kept refreshing itself. After about 10 refreshes, I was in! Hurrah!

Good luck to those who haven’t made it yet. Keep trying. Getting to that Sony window was darned annoying!

I got in through Internet Explorer, Firefox kept giving me that sony store sight. I guess they didnt make the link available at the start or something. Anyway, i signed up, for some reason most of my account names had the word Nimbus in it, and i am now waiting for the email….

Registration for Day 4 is closed! I feel so lucky. Yeah! Know of anyone who registered earlier who got their offical welcome email? What is that like? I got my registration one and completed that part.

I suspected Firefox wasn’t right for this job so I also had a tab going in Internet Explorer. Firefox got through and I am ShadowKnight202.

Congrats to all who made in it that scant 30 minute window. See you on Pottermore!

Nevermind, just got it! I have Dumbledore on Privet drive, watching the warm, lighted houses. I am so happy. I hope they let me in sooner than later.
