I can’t believe I even made it in. Yes this was an easy question but still was a very frenetic process as I couldn’t even see the bloody quill on the Sony page and so had to just keep clicking on everything like mad and refreshing the page over and over again with ever increasing frustration until the magic somehow happened and I got routed to the name selection page thingy.

A few hours later got my confirmation email and managed not to screw up that process more than once so I had to reset my password. Now I can finally get some sleep tonight. Pottermore may have disrupted my sleep pattern for months!

I can’t believe I was so excited that I actually took and saved screen grabs of my username and confirmation screens before I could stand to close the browser windows. What a dork.

I am PixieSun210! I found the registration process quite easy, and was lucky to get in quickly. I wish everyone the best of luck during the final two days! Don’t worry, you will get in! :) Hope everyone has a magical evening.

This post has screen shots of what the magical quill apparently looked like for those answering the Day 4 clue correctly and getting to the Sony webpage, before the glitch happened and the pottermore people began directing people straight to the registration page. There was a banner across the top with the glittery magical quill floating by quickly amid others. See here for images:

On Day 3, though I had the right answer, I could not view the feather on the Guardian’s web site. I figured out that Ad Block Plus was blocking the Magic Feather as an ad. If you have Ad Block Plus, turn it off when you are looking for the feather!
