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!

Are these emails sent out in any particular order? Are you supposed to get your email first if you registered on an earlier day? And is everyone who found the Quill getting an email, or only certain people?

luckyleo81: The only new thing is mid-august for the first early access accounts to be enabled. The Insider blog tells us that the log in button will reappear when the first early access starts.

Ludve: We think they are ordered by the day of registration, though of course some emails will take longer to deliver than others.

I have NOT received mine yet… :(
Although I got in on the 5th day… so I guess that I still have to keep waiting for a little longer. Soooooo glad for those of you who already got it…. soooo jealous!
