Pottermore Insider Updated: Beta Access Continues, Staggered Entrance

The Pottermore Insider blog has been updated to mark the progress of the first few days of beta access to the Harry Potter online reading experience.  The blog post reads, in part:

At the start of this week, we sent out Welcome emails to a small number of Beta users. These people have been busy exploring the site, leaving comments to tell us when they like something, and making suggestions when they find something they would like us to improve. In just four days we’ve learned an awful lot and, as a result, have started making changes to improve the Pottermore experience.  
We know that a lot of people are eager to receive their Welcome emails and that it’s difficult to wait but, as we mentioned in our earlier blog post, we’re staggering entry to Pottermore and to start with we’re only letting a small number of people onto the site.

Leaky has access to Pottermore and is updating this post with our live observations throughout the day.  A full review will be posted shortly.

If you have access to this beta version of Pottermore, please do share your thoughts in the comments below!

Still waiting for my email. I guess since I registered on Day 6, I’ll be waiting for a while. By the sounds of it, I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait (:

I wish they would announce when they will sent the emails like they did with the clues that way one doesn’t have to check the inbox every hour……

I have set my phone to alarm when I get a new e-mail, so I don’t have to keep checking thousands of times a day lol. However, that means every time an e-mail comes, even in the middle of the night, I wake up and check quickly. So maybe it is still just as obsessive to check that way!

What makes me most anxious is not knowing when the email will arrive. I wish pottermore insider would give us some sort of idea of how they are choosing the order of who gets access to the site and when. ..or maybe when they plan on sending out the next batch of emails.. even an estimate is great. It would alleviate some of my anxiety and I wouldn’t have to check my email every 5 minutes.
