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 ask a question. I’m 34 years old. Is that okay for me to use quill? I love HP. I don’t know the policy? If so, what time it will start on EST? Thank you.

I had to get up early for work and decided to giver her a go at 5AM. I was surprised to get in and find the magic quill. And the latter part was made all the more difficult since I was using an adblocker that removed it. Thankfully, I turned it off and reloaded the page.

For people who have already got in… are the questions super hard? I’m asking because I don’t have my Harry Potter books with me right now and I need to know if they’ll be vital to getting in. If there’s any way of answering my question that would be great! Thanks!

@nitaro48 I answered day 2’s question which was What chapter did Professor McGonagall cancel the Quidditch match and divide that number by 48. Luckily I had a copy of Chamber of secrets and skimmed for the part I knew hermione had been attacked and I found the part where Harry and Ron go into the forest so I flipped back and found it chapter 14
