The Pottermore Insider blog has answered a few more questions with regards to the Magical Quill Challenge. Of particular interest might be the time frame during which the fourth clue will be posted:

So far, all the clues have appeared in the early hours of the morning in my time zone. Will this continue for the remainder of The Magical Quill challenge?
We know that Harry Potter fans around the world are taking part in the challenge, so we will be varying the times that the clues are revealed. We can tell you that tomorrow's clue (Day 4) will be released between 2.00pm and 6.00pm BST.

Additional questions are included here. For your reference 2:00 pm BST is 9:00 am EST and 6:00 am PST.

I stayed up all night and got mine at 4:15 am. I don’t think age makes a difference.

I was able to get mine on Monday :) I hope everyone that hasn’t been able to sign up will be able to soon.

I’m curious as to why my kids all received a second email with their username and I only received the first one that took me to the site to register, so of course I don’t remember what my username is now. Is it so that I will have their information for them since they are under the age of 13?

I bet that is why tlhorton but I could be wrong. I didn’t get a second email either. I am so thrilled to have been able to register the first night.

Oh this is good news!! I’m an elder witch and it took I don’t care to mention how many cups of coffee to stay up until after 3:00 am this morning waiting on the 3rd clue! That was MISERABLE, but I got in! I’m so glad at least tomorrow people here in the states won’t have to sit up all night for this opportunity. Good luck fellow Leakians!

It was 3 am in California, and I’d been checking at 1 am, 2 am, and wham! But, elaborate complicated process for sure. And the final email took another 45 minutes to arrive. I’m Auntie Muriel’s age, so this was tough. But worth it!

Harry hadn't had a single letter since Hagrid's note, something that Malfoy had been quick to notice, of course. Malfoy's eagle owl was always bringing him packages of sweets from home, which he opened gloatingly at the Slytherin table.
