ok..it is now 7:44 p.m. EST and the page still isn’t open. Gee..guess I am going to have to keep refreshing the page ever few seconds. This is my last chance and I do believe it isn’t going to happen for me. Good Luck to those who haven’t gotten an account yet!

pandyapple: The verification email can appear almost immediately or take several hours – not very helpful I am afraid.

Beewell, I FEEL YOUR PAIN. I was on vacation until about an hour ago, with no Internet access or anything… terribly painful to come home to millions of Facebook statuses going “ha! I have a Pottermore!” This is my one chance and I am sitting here… waiting… :D

Trontech — there’s a banner thing at the top of the page with quills floating around; click that!

Ummm…no, there isn’t. Maybe it’s because they know I got in 2 days ago. PS Firefox is arguing that the translator site is untrustworthy. I’ll switch to Internet explorer. Pss. I’m not trying to re-register. Just having fun seeing if I can get the quill.

Bingo. Internet Explorer got the banner with quill. Just in case anybody can’t get in with Firefox. Maybe it was adblock stopping the banner.
