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.

Missed the timing again! Checked too early, and then checked again too late… Sigh!

joeys_mommy: note “tomorrow” is today in many cases. The window for the clue to appear starts in a bit over 8 hours time.

@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!

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.

@Loader Lady: today it went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s website

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!

I wonder how many people who haven’t read the books have gotten in

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.

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!
