Pottermore Insider Answers Questions About Beta Testing and Welcome E-Mails
August 25, 2011, 03:35 PM
A new blog post has gone up on the Pottermore Insider following the latest batch of welcome e-mails which were sent out today.
Several frequently asked questions about the beta process are covered in this latest update as well as the timeline for receiving welcome e-mails. The Insider also denies the rumor that welcome letters will be sent out sooner to those who have been friended by other Pottermore users.
Beta phases are fluid and it’s important to watch and see how a site reacts to increasing amounts of users and activity.
Every time more people are added to Pottermore, we take a pause and look at how the site is responding to see if everything is working as we expect it to and whether we need to make changes before we let more people into Pottermore.
We are planning on giving more people early access over the next week or so and then we will pause sending Welcome emails for a while so that we can see how things are going.
Unfortunately, we can’t create a schedule to share, as we need to respond to what we learn with each group of new users. That’s also why there are gaps between the batches of Welcome emails; it all depends on what we’re learning from those who are currently on the site.
@ cb160 the insider responded to my email, they said they are not sending out the emails in order of registration. the puts a stop to people who think that the emails are send out in the order that they registered.
@ mencia Wow!!! That’s something! And, of course, they didn’t reveal the method for choosing to welcome ppl?
@ cb160 our winter is not as cold as yours in America and Europe. although this year was the coldest that I have experienced here. we don’t normally have snow but it snowed in some southern parts of the country. it is ending now, we are actually entering spring now. all in all our seasons are reversed to yours, when you have summer we have winter and vice versa
no they are pretty mysterious with their method of choosing, which is frustrating for those of us still waiting
@ mencia More like… “titilating”! But that means we can get ours anytime regardless when we registrated – come on, look at the full half off the glass!
I’m sooooo sorry… but I’m still confused. The Insider I’m watching says “official blog” so, I don’t understand… are there two Insiders?
P.D.: Totally forbidden to laugh at my questions… :)
Day 2 on quill challenge and still nothing. Have tried both checking e-mail and simply signing in. I think PM knows I have too many other things I should be doing. :) Have a good day everyone!
@ Halfblood Princess Google it, you’ll find it, promise!
@Halfblood Princess lol I was also confused so I simply googled pottermore insider contact and it the blog came up.

@cb160 you are so right at least now we know that we might not have to wait too long for ours just because we are day 4ers
