The Pottermore Insider has updated to announce that all one million Welcome emails for Pottermore beta users have been sent out!

The site is expected to be very busy now that all users have been given access, so you may have to wait and try a few times before successfully signing in.

To everyone who has been granted access to Pottermore, let us know what you think in the comments!

@Luna – did you do the quill quest?

@Luna: unless you participated in the magical quill challenge, you’ll need to wait for sometime in October to register. The quill challenge started on July 31 to August 6 where 1 million people were granted “early” access..I’d say it was “early” access for a few and later access for the majority of the quill challenge winners. I know someone in another feed had multiple accounts and he gave his other accounts out to people who wanted them and just kept one. ..maybe if you know someone that happens to have two accounts or doesn’t want theirs anymore, you could get on. I would personally wait so that you could enjoy the whole experience with getting your wand, being sorted, and discovering the site. Hopefully all the bugs will be fixed by then.

Got my wand!

Alder with phoenix feather core, 10 3/4 inches, surprisingly swishy :)

I loved the wand quiz – had a close choice on the “pride” question and a slight hesitation on the “fear” question.

@jade – did you ever receive a “Congratulations” email from Pottermore at the end of August?

Posted by purplehogwarts on September 28, 2011, 06:59 AM report to moderator

jadejazzkayla: They have sent out all the emails but that doesn’t mean everyone received them – it might have ended up in your spam folder, still be making its way through the various email systems, or discarded if one of the email systems it went through decided it was spam.
However as all the beta accounts have now been enabled you should be able to log in anyway – the Welcome email is just informative, you don’t need it to get onto the site.

@ Mudblood29 I very much doubt that even PM team knows the answer at your question! Duel is still down ans today’s Sept 28th!

And I can tell you lamppost’s still glitching and, since yesterday, I noticed you’re unable to buy a pewter cauldron – don’t ask me why, the other kind can be buyed by selecting “Buy”. Don’t know if it’s only me or everyone have this problems.

Mudblood29: They say the site will open to the public at the beginning of October on one of the Magic Quill help pages, though that was written some time ago, so I have no idea is that is still the plan.

cb160: You can only buy one cauldron of each type, so if you already have a pewter cauldron you can’t buy another until you have blown up the first one.

cb160 if you already have a pewter cauldron, you can’t buy another. Blow it up and you can buy one.

So that was the mystery, guys! Thanks @roonwit and Phoenix for tip, and I have to thank Phoenix also for, used it this evening to save my SleepingDraught, I tried it first time succesfully from first attempt, but after 100’ it was a loop that nearly drove me insane. Fortunately, it didn’t blow up and after long strugglings I could do part 2. I can say PM is definitely a virtual world, in the real one never had so much luck like these days with brewing potions and getting away with it between glitches, support messages and being kicked out!

I never did receive my email, but I was able to sign on anyway. I haven’t got to do much on the site- I kept getting error messages. But it looks spectacular. I agree with others that some background music would really add to the experience.
