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!
@roonwit… thanks for helping to keep those of us waiting for the e-mail sane. Sadly I kept waking up throughout the night hoping my e-mail would be there lol. It makes sense that if we finished the registration and were able to sign in and out of the site before it was taken down… that we will not lose out on early access. I have yahoo… and I know that was a problem before… would be interesting to know how many people without the e-mail yet are yahoo users.
snapegal27: I think yahoo’s default policy is “Hey, you are sending me lots of emails, it is probably spam, I am only going accept a few at a time” which isn’t generally a problem, but is if you are sending tens of thousands (maybe hundreds of thousands) of emails to them. They fixed it for the verification emails but these may be hitting the same problem if enough things are different for them not to be covered by the same fix.
@snapegal27 … Yeah I was wondering the same thing, because I have a Yahoo account. But, I just finally got my email. So if anyone else has Yahoo, hopefully they’re starting to arrive.
