Pottermore Insider Answers Questions on Duelling, Potions, and Beta Feedback
September 02, 2011, 05:52 PM
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

We did know about the beta survey from an earlier Insider post, the new bit of information is that we will be able to make proper comments rather than just ticking boxes.
I think it will still be awhile for those of us who found the quill beyond Day 1/2
I’m still WAITING!!
Since I got in on Day 6, I know that I’ll be in way later..still I can’t help but check on insider all the time and the news feed to see when a new batch of emails are sent out. The sooner they let more people in, the closer I’ll be to getting in. The wait though is crazy hard and I can’t wait for my email. The good news about this though is that at least a lot of the bugs will should be fixed by the time I get my welcome email.. at the same time, I’d rather experience the bugs and joys of being on PM rather than waiting for my welcome email.
I wonder how many people got in with the last batch of emails today.
@ MagicalMe – me too. I also wish they gave us more details about the “pause” period. Oh well. I’m still waiting for my email as well.
Anyone have an updated student count??
It has dropped by one again to 144,308!
@roonwit – the student count has dropped? I guess that means either people are cancelling their accounts, PM is deleting the accounts of people cheating or those that have 2 beta accounts. I was kind of hoping that there would be a big increase to indicate that another large batch was allowed in.
does anyone no in what order the pottermore e-mails are being sent out? or is there any actual order? my friend found the quill on day 2 and i found mine on day 4 both of us still have no e-mail :(
Pottermore has had a few problems, like the ones they mentioned. But it is still such an enjoyable site! :D
I wish my email would come already. I want to see Pottermore while its still fixing things, I want to be a beta!!!!
On Twitter there don’t seem to be all that many people cheering about getting their letters, and I’ve been watching on and off all day. Either it’s a tiny batch or there’s an email hiccup somewhere…
I can’t believe I am still waiting for an e-mail! At this rate, most people probably won’t get in until October! This was supposed to be an early access thing to help build the experience, but what will we be able to do a couple of weeks (or days) before it’s open to everyone. I really hope e-mails start coming soon. Getting in early certainly doesn’t seem quite as fantastic as it was built up to be. Particularly seeing as early access started almost 2 months ago and most people still haven’t gotten in.
Here’s hoping I get in before October at least!
I’m still waiting too! Can’t wait to see everything, it sounds so fun.
come on pottermore!
