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!

This is weird.. I suppose either they’re not going in order, or they’re only taken a select amount from each day…

I am going to be so nervous until I get the next e-mail… I was day 5 and seeing that day 6 had e-mails go out makes me terrified that I am going to get skipped. Urgh… this waiting game is going to drive me around the bend lol… well at least it gives us something to look forward to and be excited about!

I think they will be going in order, but there are always going to be delays in the email system for some messages. Those from early days who don’t yet have emails are probably just unlucky, but they should arrive eventually.

I got an e-mail but when I clicked on the link to activate it said the page was ‘hidden’ , does this mean I can’t activate my account + is anyone else having the same problem?

Crazy and Proud: If you mean the verification email, that will have expired by now, and the page it would have taken you to will have gone by now.
The email sent around today just confirms you have an early access place, there is no action you need to take.

I love that all the answers where multiples of seven.
I appreciate these little things that make things like this that much more special
