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!
Yay! Got my first email….. Awaiting my second. Too bad I’ll be at the lake this week. :(
i wouldnt worry if you havent gotten your email. i dont think the email is being sent to everyone which means they have to sent it to 1 million people which is going to take time.
I didn’t get my account until the final day of questions, so I’m probably going to be one of the last people in for BETA testing. XD But that’s ok, since it’s still earlier than I originally thought!
i didnt get my email……………..maybe tommorow?
But i cant wait for the email!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, I got in on Day 5, and haven’t seen any pleasant little welcoming e-mails yet, but I’m opting to be patient and pragmatic. If the e-mail is just a little late, or the whole process had to be staggered (understandable), than no worries. I’m even prepared at this point to forfeit my early access to the site, in case (heaven forbid) something went a wee bit wrong in the whole process and I get left out…October really isn’t that far away, and to be honest, I’m just excited to see this whole thing playing out. Pottermore looks very intriguing so far, and the more buzz I hear about it (from people like Melissa Anelli, who I trust), the more jazzed I get.
I got in in day 4… still no email from Pottermore… I can’t wait!!!!!
Still waiting for my email!
I registered on Pottermore on the 1st day and got my email yesterday in the evening (BST+1). But from what I heard from friends it looks like these emails are sent at random. Some who registered on the 1st day have not recieved their email yet while people registered on the 5th day recieved them at the same time as I did. So don’t worry, I think you’ll all recieve that email in the end. ^^
Got in Day 3 still no e-mail…Is it maybe tied to a yahoo email address (which I have)? They had a problem with slow registration emails to yahoo addresses earlier…
Bear in mind that the email system will randomize delivery times a lot. Some emails will be received quickly, others will sit on the Pottermore servers waiting for the destination mail system to accept them, others will be in the destination mail system but not yet delivered, and there can be delays at each stage, particularly when there are 1 million emails involved.
@Heiwa thank you for the reassurance
Thanks for the explanation, Roonwit! I registered on Day 4 and still no email. The waiting is horrible, even though I realize that the email won’t actually give me access.
still waiting hopefully…
pretty sure the third email is going to be the welome email; the seond one is just the confirmation.
