As mentioned last week, the Pottermore Insider blog has now been updated to answer frequently asked questions that Pottermore beta users have been asking. Concerns dealing with the potions brewing, wizards duelling, and moderation for common room comments are all addressed.
Additionally, the Insider reveals that a Pottermore beta survey will be sent out in a few weeks to those who have already gained entry into the site and will allow fans to provide more specific feedback.

That would make sense. If they let in the same number of people each quill day (about 140k = 1 million / 7 days), and we’re at about 200k people sorted, that would mean all of day 1 and most of day 2 people have probably gotten their emails… So, theoretically, one more big batch should finish off day 2 people. … sorry, i resort to math when i’m desperate, lol.
lol Rosalinda – we all have our own ways to cope :) My way is watching the number climb higher (which caused a problem for me when it was dropping instead of rising!)
Do we know for sure if they let in equal amounts each day of the quill? The only reason I’m asking is on one poll I found, many more people answered that they got the quill on days 1 and 2 than on later days. Or is it simply that people who weren’t as determined to get in on the first days aren’t as likely to bother posting anything else about it later? As in, not as hardcore? I wasn’t initially planning on trying for early entry for various reasons, but I did luck into it on day 6, thanks to someone I follow on Twitter mentioning it still being open.
There I go, overthinking everything again ;)
I tried looking online for anything that might say how many registrants there were each quill day, but came up empty. I’m was thinking along the lines of your second theory: that earlier day people were the more hardcore that were likely to remain involved in other ways (surveys, tweeting, keeping in the loop here on leaky).
