First Round of Pottermore Welcome Emails Sent Out, Pottermore Blog Updated
August 10, 2011, 03:47 PM
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!
Still no email, I’m getting paranoid.
It reminds me to much of the email of the first clue, that never came through to me and I had to register again. :-(
Ninath: The emails are nice to get, but not vital. This one gives you a bit of information, and I expect that the second one will say “if you log in now, you will get proper access to the site”. So you can just try logging in when there are reports that others from your day have access and see what you get.
@roonwit – the question is if you can just log in or if you need the welcome mail for that. And if I don’t get this mail, do I get the welcome mail then?!?
That’s what makes me paranoid.
Ninath: You could log in during the magical quill period, you just couldn’t do anything other than change your account settings. Insider says “This second email will let you know that your account has been activated and that you can log in to Pottermore.” so they are just informing you that the account is now fully live. I can’t see the point of making us going through some other extra stage tied to the welcome email, and it would just be extra work for them. If they do want you to agree to beta terms or something (beyond what you already agreed to by signing up for an early access account), it would make sense for them to get you to do that as you access the site.
