The first round of Pottermore Welcome emails started being sent out today, and as of this writing they are still being sent out. This email indicates that you have been selected for early entry into Pottermore and says that your account will be activated between mid-August and late September. According to the Pottermore blog, a second round of emails will be sent out to let you know that your account has been activated.

The Pottermore blog has been updated with the above information, as well as the answers to all of the questions asked during the Magical Quill Challenge. Apparently, all the multipliers were multiples of seven!

@Emily – It better means that those who didn’t get there confirmation mail, get their welcome mail first! Quasi as compensation. That would make me really happy ;-)

I think roonwit has a very good point. If you have that log in and you did not get this confirmation e-mail just try the login when you see the button reappear. Who knows you may still be getting a “welcome e-mail” in the mean time.

My thinking is the first welcome letters will go out at Midnight GMT tonight, i.e. 15th August, mid August, so maybe only an hour to wait for some people?

pottyloveslooney: I think it is more likely to happen Monday morning (maybe 9am), as I think they would want to watch the effects on their servers.

OMG! Just tried to log in, but I got the same email as I did before just congratulating me for early registration and telling me to wait for my letter. It’s torture!

LovesLaborLost: I doubt they have enabled any accounts yet, as they probably need to do a bit more tweaking, but I would expect the first early access places to be activated later today.

Ooooooo, I’m green with envy! I hope the site runs smoothly so we can all get in early.

Is the email like a Hogwort’s letter?
