As mentioned last week, the Pottermore Insider blog has now been updated to answer frequently asked questions that Pottermore beta users have been asking. Concerns dealing with the potions brewing, wizards duelling, and moderation for common room comments are all addressed.

Additionally, the Insider reveals that a Pottermore beta survey will be sent out in a few weeks to those who have already gained entry into the site and will allow fans to provide more specific feedback.

'...It'd be nice to know IF Wizard Dueling will be available to beta testers again. I don't care when, just a yes or not.' [sic]   - cwbrumm
Yes! We know that you like Wizard’s Duel - a lot. This section of the site has proven to be immensely popular and we’ve been making a number of improvements behind the scenes to ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible. We just need to finish making and testing our changes.

roonwit: yeah, I guess it’s not that big after all. It’s just nice to see the numbers climbing again instead of going down.

Fridays batch of e-mails took a LONG time to get to my inbox. I got it 48 hours after it was sent (or they sent out a batch on Sunday and I missed the post.)

GNewt23: Or (more likely) they sent some out on Sunday and didn’t announce it.

Still waiting for email, too. Errol must be lost.

@Halfblood Princess: I found the quill on Day 2. My sister is a Day 3er and hasn’t gotten her e-mail yet.

@GNewt23: I was hoping you were a later day!!!! I’m a day 5!
I hope your sis gets in soon, perhaps that will mean I’ll be closer… Let me know when she receives her mail!

Same here @magicneverends! Within the first few minutes of Day 3. If any day 3-ers get in today give a holler here! I feel like there’s a bunch of us.

It’s depressing being a Day Six. I’m trying to remind myself that I have a rather busy week and shouldn’t be playing on PM anyway, so it shouldn’t matter that I don’t get my email…

But good luck to everyone! Maybe our Day Threes will get in soon! I really wish I knew just how many emails got sent in each batch.

I’d venture a guess, seeing the number’s sorted increases after each batch, that the batches are around 20-25k… but they do say in one of the insider q & a’s that the batches will be increasing in size as they move forward… hopes
