I got my email on Friday and was able to get in, have fun with no problem. I wish it had music, but also my adobe flash would crash over and over and I have a brand new laptop. As of Sunday though I have yet to be able to get in, even in the middle of the night for me i am in California, and I try all day long with no luck. I think they need to get more servers and let it be enjoyed by everyone. I also noticed you can only do book one at this point. Oh and don’t brew any potions right now, because when you go back to finish it, you will more then likely get kicked out and not be able to get back in. =(

@ Hedwig1994 If you keep trying, you’ll get in. I alternated my 3 browsers today, bcs PM’s hiccups, you can find this way a moment when one of them makes access easier.

Well, I’ve got enough of being kicked out from PM for today, still brewed 2 potions for the first time on PM and uploaded a drawing… guess it’ll be enough Beta work for now, I’m going to sleep, it’s late in the night already. See you tomorrow!

Well, I finally got my welcome e-mail yesterday (yay, less than a week before the site opens anyway!). I logged onto the site, excited, only to have everything freeze up on me as I barely began to explore Chapter One. I went and did some other things for a while, checked back in, and this time the site wouldn’t even let me in, and hasn’t since then (messages about too much demand right now, etc). It’s understandable, and I’m willing to be patient (I waited this long, didn’t I?). Hopefully they get things sorted out as best they can (it’s not a bad problem to have, so many fans wanting to experience the site that it’s crashing).

its hard to give much of a review as ive only been in for two days and therefore not had much time to experience much yet. for starters, they need a load more servers or what have you to keep the site working properly…if the site was up and easy to sign in to every time id really have no complaints. i (and my sister as well) both recommend background music and little noises and sound effects when you click on things (the suits of armor should creak and clang, the potions should bubble, doors should creak, perhaps every time you collect a chocolate frog card it should chime or something…etc) im loving all of the artists renderings, the interactive-ness and the little puzzles. im sure ill have more comments the more i get to use the site.

For anyone that has a smart phone… I have found I can get onto the site much more often and more quickly on my phone. While I don’t do potions on my phone, I can look at chapters and see what’s going on in the Ravenclaw common room and the Great Hall…
