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.

'...It'd be nice to know IF Wizard Dueling will be available to beta testers again. I don't care when, just a yes or not.' [sic]   - cwbrumm
Yes! We know that you like Wizard’s Duel - a lot. This section of the site has proven to be immensely popular and we’ve been making a number of improvements behind the scenes to ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible. We just need to finish making and testing our changes.

Looks like most folks will actually be testing the servers traffic handling capacity instead of the site content…

So what’s the latest house count?

Just curious if the number has still been dropping slightly, or if there’s been any sort of upswing since the batch yesterday?

If they really are kicking out the cheaters and multiple account people, that would be fantastic! I’m not sure how they’d discover someone had multiple accounts (vs. more than one person in the same household), but it would be great if they could. Especially since it is very much against the beta T&C to have multiple accounts (not to mention those of us with just ONE account would like to get in before someone’s SECOND account, thankyouverymuch)

The number sorted is still going down a bit, it is now at 144,296. I think the mechanism to add people to the count as they are sorted is broken which is why it isn’t increasing.

Glad to hear they’re making some changes. They need to sort out the friends page so that I can accept people without my browder crashing. I hope duelling will be just as cool as potion brewing.

im still waiting as well, and i found the quill on day 3. i think what may happen is this…if the site is open to all in october, it won’t be unitl the end of october. with sooo many people not in yet (that are supposed to be beta testers) i’m even wondering if the site will be ready to open in october at all! i have a feeling it may be pushed back because it sounds like they are in over their heads right now.

Actually, PumpkinNewt, while the whole quill thing started in July, people didn’t get in the site until August 15th. So almost 3 weeks, not 2 months… It feels like 2 months, though!

Tired of trying to sign in and seeing the “Congratulations!” page. Keep thinking my owl is “stuck in cyber space”, so I keep trying to no avail.
