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!

On the site it sayed July 31 to Sept 30 and then insider sayed August 6-September 30 and now this email says Mid august (15?) to End of september (30) Is anyone as confused as i AM????[COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"][/COLOR]

No one has gotten there welcome email. If you have not gotten the verification email you are not in the beta. If you have not gotten this reminder email within 48hrs you are not in the beta. If you ARE in the beta you should have verified your email less than 48hrs after you signed up and should get the reminder email in 48hrs or less. If you are not in the beta you may submit your email on the pottermore website and sign up in october. If you ARE in the beta you should be welcomed via email from mid august to end of september. If you DID NOT get a verification email or verify your verification email 48 hrs or less after you registered DO NOT expect a reminder email OR welcome email, you must register in October and are NOT in the beta. If you have any questions PM me or email me, Id be happy to help.

I've been having such a hard time receiving my emails from Pottermore. I hope I get mine soon!
Also, why would they take till the end of September to get out the emails? Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of an early entry?

I got my confirmation email on day 2. They should be sending out the welcome emails soon. I hope it goes in order of days because people who got in day 1 have been waiting the longest. I think they have been having some problems becuase of sooooooo many people going on the site at once.

My appologies to anyone who took my previous post to be "rude". I was simply stating my opinions. I hope no one was offended.

I feel the same as everyone, that second email killed me! I was like "YES! At last! I could just die!" and then I did die when I realized it was telling me it would be another week till they even started sending out welcome emails. lol well I think they should send out the emails by the day people registered...maybe?

I completely freaked out when I saw Pottermore in my email. I dashed to my computer (I was on my phone) and was kind of bummed it was just another "Please wait" email, haha. I signed up on Day 3, within 5 minutes of the clue being up :]

I wouldn't be to worried because i got in on day 3 to and I havent gotten mines yet either. It is probably because they cannot send out 1 million emails all at once.
