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!

I did. I don't know if that's how they will do it, it's just strange that if you did it then you have seven weeks for everyone to get in although I might be way off the mark.

I don't think it has been said that Pottermore will open on the 1st of October, just that it will be opening IN October. It could be mid October for all we know. Depends on how well the Beta Testing goes, is my guess.

I think, when all people get first mail "Congratulations!"
Then, mayby next day - people who join in Day 1 get second mail. (I hope so.)

Yeah I was just thinking about the fact it doesn't specify when in October, but It makes sense being the first of October. These Pottermore people are very sneaky

It's not Yahoo mail. I got my son's message in my Yahoo before I got mine in my Hotmail account and he registered a day after I did, so it's definitely not the mail account.

so Day 1 peeps are getting their email now? i wonder what about Day 5 peeps? given the date i was just wondering if the rest of us will only be around the beta sight for a few days/ hours before Pottermore officially opens? (kinda pointless beta tester? lol!)

I got my "pre" welcome letter today. I bet in the end I'll end up getting access only a few weeks prior to the official launch. lol. However, I hope my Felix Felicis works and I'm lucky enough to get my letter in a couple of weeks.

I saw somewhere that they are sending the emails out slowly (obviously) I don't think there is anything to be worried about if you signed uP on a later day and haven't gotten it yet. I think some of the days are overlapping, but I know 6/7 haven't gotten any Prewelcome emails yet. I don't like how vague it is. I need a date to look forward to and then I won't be so antsy!

WooWoo!! I wonder if they will send emails informing us that we can access Pottermore Immediately, or gives us another date :S I'd imagine it notifies us of it being available immediately.
