The Pottermore Insider Blog has added to their FAQ about the Magical Quill Challenge by addressing issues regarding the fourth clue, as well as information regarding registering multiple accounts:

I solved the clue for Day 4 but I couldn't find The Magical Quill. What happened?
Due to huge demand today, not everyone who solved the Day 4 clue was able to find The Magical Quill. To ensure no one missed out on the chance to register for early access to Pottermore, we decided to direct people who successfully solved the clue straight to the Pottermore registration page, where they were able to register as normal.

I’ve found The Magical Quill more than once. Am I allowed to create multiple early access Pottermore accounts?
No. You may only register for the early access period once. Please refer to the conditions of participation in The Magical Quill promotion Terms & Conditions.

I don’t see why people make multiple accounts. It’s unnecessary!

I had my laptop with me since 7:20 this morning (which is 12:20 BST)… eagerly awaiting the clue… but then I had to drive to my grandmother’s house. We stopped at Wawa so it took about 30 mins. During that 30 minutes, the clue opened and closed. I missed it! Urgh. Better luck tomorrow, me.

Oh I forgot to mention I was watching the site from 7:20 to about 11:00.

Well I expect those who are making multiple accounts would be for friends and relatives who were unavailable during the registration times. Or wanted to re-register if they had that issue with Yahoo! Mail that was going on.

What time would you say clue five will be out in Ireland?

I missed my audition because I stayed up all night watching for the clue and I passed out at about 8am, woke up at 11 and it was closed, so I thought I’d try to get some sleep since I missed registration and I wanted to look human for my audition, but I slept right through it! I guess I’m more dedicated to Potter than I am to acting!

Issue with Yahoo! mail? That explains everything. :/ I couldn’t log in at all, and am missing the whole thing. TRAGEDY.

xD Yes, the Magical Quill was slightly unnecessary. lOl. I think just letting them register is better! (:

I am rather disappointed, quite frankly, at this poor explanation about what was supposed to happen (were we supposed to find it on the Sony site? Was I just bumped there because the website was so busy?). “To ensure no one missed out on the chance to register for early access to Pottermore, we decided to direct people who successfully solved the clue straight to the Pottermore registration page” I don’t consider the Sony page I stared at for five minutes (with quite a few refreshes in there) the same thing as the Pottermore registration page.

I’ve found this process completely frustrating…not the least of which is I have a job and don’t have hours to sit monitoring my messages for news that registration is open.

Mrs. Dursley was thin and blonde and had nearly twice the usual amount of neck, which came in very useful as she spent so much of her time craning over garden fences, spying on the neighbors.
