How many students take part in the Triwizard Tournament during Harry's fourth year? Multiply this number by 28.
Think you know the answer? Add the number to the end of this website address ( and find the magical quill for a chance to be one of the first million Pottermore beta users. Please do not post the answer or link in the comments!

They said that they weren’t opening it until after the Magic Quill is over and that they will send welcome letters out in spurts so not everyone tries to get on the site at the exact same time and crash it. So look out for your letter starting maybe next week?

Congrats to everyone who got in so far! I know I was so excited I didn’t close any of the pages after I got in for a full 24 hours. :)

Thank you all for your encouragement and kind words. I felt like a kid again when I got in and my son was dancing around so happy. Maybe tomorrow. We are playing Lego Harry for the 7th or 8th time, so I figure that when the site goes up we will have wrapped it up or started again :) In the meantime, Atticus and me will keep reading and hoping too.

Thank you all,

Cusato.s: If you have validated your account then you will get in some time during the early access period. They will tell you when in a later email.

@roonit Thank you!!! You guys have no idea how long it took for me to get this…I’m waiting since last Sunday, but then I fell asleep and didn’t manage to get on the right time all the other days…the thing is that the clue wasn’t hard today, the problem was to get the access to it…

@j3anthony03: ProphecyWizard is a very cool username!

Leaky should make a simple page where people can just post their pottermore usernames – no extraneous details, maybe even leaving out the ###, not even identify the posting-person – just so we can see the cool list!

(maybe like an excel file and it could even be alphabetized, or searchable, so people can see if there’s other names like theirs, since there seem to be shared terms)
