I’m so confused! So I’m looking for a quill on the website that the http://quill.pottermore.com/ url with the answer leads me too? maybe I’m reading too much into this

@JennyLA: yes, it will take you to a website and there is a box at the top of the page where you click on the quill. That then takes you to the registration page.

@JennyLA: There are lots of flying feathers but click on the one that kind of glows.

First attempt I got the message that the page had disappeared “…as if somebody had thrown an invisibility cloak over it.” Subsequent attempts to go to the destination url do nothing but erase the url I typed in. I hope others are having better luck.

@Pheonix1946: I had the same problem at first. Make sure you type in the url right – http://quill.pottermore.com/ and then answer after the slash

Why do I get redirected to the HP scholastic page? I typed the URL correctly, but there’s nothing interesting happening.

@EskimoJIll: Did you get to the Scholastic page? If so, the quill is at the top. If not, enter the URL again as mentioned above.

Nevermind… I had an ad blocker activated. That’s why I couldn’t see it. I’m in!

there should be what looks like an advertisement up at the top of the page. the magic quill is floating around in there and you have to click on it. It took me a few times but a link w/in the advertisment finally poped up.

I’m curious why the question is being posted here on TLC. Is this the answer to the email that I sent to Pottermore? What I suggested was that it would be nice if those of us who were already in could see the question just because it’s fun to try to solve the puzzle/riddle of the day. When I first saw the question posted, I thought it seemed like it would be going against the rules but now that I think about it, it doesn’t. People still have to get the right page to come up. So, thank you, Pottermore – I think – and TLC.
