This is just my thought…If PM is giving out welcome letters in the order by which people got the magical quill, it may be safe to assume that for each day about 142,857 registered. Since they are on Day 3 registrants, does that mean that all of Days 1 and 2 are in? I know in the beginning welcome letters went out to people from other days but it seems like the majority were from the first day of the quill challenge. ..okay back to my thinking. If Days 1 and 2 are all in (since they started day 3) then around 285,714 people should have received their welcome emails…After Day 3 people 428,571 should have gotten them. I’m thinking more than likely that the numbers of students on PM does not reflect the amount of welcome emails sent out..if they are going in order by day now. It could be that there are people that have not checked their emails or did not bother to get sorted yet. If this is the case, then maybe PM is sending out a lot of emails after all.. If this is the case..then I can’t wait to get my letter!! Thank you for those of you who have kept the constant updates! They help keep me sane during this waiting period (:

MagicalMe: I wonder how many people got accounts with the intent to sell. Maybe there are non potter fans with multiple accounts that will not use them. Maybe just wishful thinking as everyday is one day closer to my turn.

I’m day 4, and I still haven’t gotten in. I am constantly checking my emails, though. Has anyone heard Lauren Fairweather’s pottermore song? She posted it on her youtube channel, devilishlypure, today.

@Laurenmyrtle love the video. Nope still waiting. Is it really on a day by day basis. Where’d you here this? I’m on Day 4 and there’s still only 20% of the beta people on Pottermore as we speak (love the way we have something to talk about after DH2, ain’t over just yet!)

MagicalMe^_^: Day 1 and 2 probably had fewer registrations than later days, because some accounts may not have been verified due to the mail delays, or mistyped email addresses, but these unfilled places would have been made available during later days when they had sorted out some of the email problems. Of course this assumes Pottermore distributed the places evenly between the days and they might not have done.

I got in on Day 2 and for some reason I got my welcome letter the second day Pottermore was opened. My husband also go in on Day 2 but he didn’t get his welcome letter until last Sunday. The art work is wonderful and leaves characters to your imagination. Someday I’ll brew a forgetfulness potion and forget all the times it didn’t work. I have a great appreciation for how hard potions was for Harry, you really have to pay close attention. I love to read the comments of the newly sorted, so I’m often in the Sorting Hat chapter. Remember to take your time choosing your answers when your wand chooses you and when you are sorted. The questions are very interesting and not what you would expect. I hope everyone’s welcome letter is winging it’s way to you right now, though you’ll find it’s worth the wait whenever it comes.

You’re right roonwit. That may be the case also. It could be that Days 1 and 2 had fewer registrations and maybe they allotted more for the later days as the questions got easier and easier..assuming more people tried to register during those days. The only thing we can go by for sure is the student count on PM is a good indication to guess how many welcome letters went out and what days are receiving them.
