Post Pottermore welcome emails set to start arriving mid-August, logins disabled

Pottermore began sending out emails today indicating a rough timeframe for when the welcome emails will start arriving for those who were lucky enough to get a Beta account during the Magical Quill Challenge last week. According to the email, the welcome emails will start arriving in mid-August and will continue throughout the end of September.



Photos!: Larger image


UPDATE: The Pottermore Insider blog updated today noting that the sign-in button has been removed currently, and will be up once the welcome letters are sent out beginning next week. They also gave the answers to the Magical Quill challenge questions, seen below.
As we mentioned in our earlier post, we’re staggering access to the Beta site, so you may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive. This second email will let you know that your account has been activated and that you can log in to Pottermore. (Please note that the 'Sign in to Pottermore' link has been temporarily removed from the Pottermore site and that it will return when the first early access accounts are enabled.)

Finally, we thought the curious amongst you might like to know exactly which clues appeared on which days, and what the clue solutions were.

Day 1 Clue
How many breeds of owl are featured on the Eeylops Owl Emporium sign?
Answer: 5
Multiply this number by 49.
Solution: 245

Day 2 Clue
What is the number of the chapter in which Professor McGonagall cancels the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff?
Answer: 14
Multiply this number by 42.
Solution: 588
(Note: if you read the Day 2 clue in a language other than English you would have been asked to multiply the answer by a different number to ensure you saw the right language page.)

Day 3 Clue
In the Gryffindor versus Slytherin Quidditch match, in Harry’s third year, how many points is Gryffindor leading by before Harry catches the Golden Snitch?
Answer: 60
Multiply this number by 35.
Solution: 2100

Day 4 Clue
How many students take part in the Triwizard Tournament during Harry’s fourth year?
Answer: 4
Multiply this number by 28.
Solution: 112

Day 5 Clue
What is the house number of the Headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix in Grimmauld Place?
Answer: 12
Multiply this number by 21.
Solution: 252

Day 6 Clue
How many chapters are there in HARRY POTTER and the Half-Blood Prince? 

Answer: 30
Multiply this number by 14.
Solution: 420

Day 7 Clue
How many Deathly Hallows are there?
Answer: 3
Multiply this number by 7.
Solution: 21

And, yes, all the multipliers were multiples of seven!

when I saw it I was so excited!!
but then I found out it's just some kind of "reminder".
at least we'll know when they start sending the emails,
just look if the sign in option is back...

Isnt this info we already know? Why did they bother sending this email out? They could have just posted this on pottermore insider. It was a real killjoy when i found this in my email and thought it was my welcome letter......They could have at LEAST given us a better time frame or how they were selecting the first people to get the welcome letters....

Not all the emails have been sent out at the same time; I got mine at around 5pm and a friend got theirs two hours later. So don't worry TOO much about not getting it straight away, I'd imagine their servers would crash if they tried sending a million emails at once.

I got mine too. I know that it's just a reminder email but at least it confirms that I will get a chance to try the website early. I was so excited to see the email. Now all that is left is the final welcome email. It's definitely getting closer. I'm so excited.

BTW to NemeshT who asked whether the sign in button is there, according to the website where the Pottermore link in my email took me to, it has been removed temporarily.

Best of luck to everyone!!

James do you mean they got there welcome emails or this new "update email"?? Pottermore insider says the login button will re appear when they start giving people access to the site...so as i understand there have been no welcome emails just yet? Except for those fake ones....(photoshopped...how low can people get?)
