One Million Pottermore Emails Sent Out
September 27, 2011, 10:51 AM
The Pottermore Insider has updated to announce that all one million Welcome emails for Pottermore beta users have been sent out!
The site is expected to be very busy now that all users have been given access, so you may have to wait and try a few times before successfully signing in.
To everyone who has been granted access to Pottermore, let us know what you think in the comments!
FINALLLLYY! Got my email!!! Sadly though, i cant go on :(
I got my email on Friday and was able to get in, have fun with no problem. I wish it had music, but also my adobe flash would crash over and over and I have a brand new laptop. As of Sunday though I have yet to be able to get in, even in the middle of the night for me i am in California, and I try all day long with no luck. I think they need to get more servers and let it be enjoyed by everyone. I also noticed you can only do book one at this point. Oh and don’t brew any potions right now, because when you go back to finish it, you will more then likely get kicked out and not be able to get back in. =(
@ Hedwig1994 If you keep trying, you’ll get in. I alternated my 3 browsers today, bcs PM’s hiccups, you can find this way a moment when one of them makes access easier.
Thanks @cb160. I’ve gotten in since my post.. but that lasted a matter of five minutes until I was kicked off again.
What is going to happen when the welcome the world to join? :/
Well, I’ve got enough of being kicked out from PM for today, still brewed 2 potions for the first time on PM and uploaded a drawing… guess it’ll be enough Beta work for now, I’m going to sleep, it’s late in the night already. See you tomorrow!
i am soooosososo SO EXCITED! i got my email. i feel like i have finally gotten my hogwarts letter!
Well, I finally got my welcome e-mail yesterday (yay, less than a week before the site opens anyway!). I logged onto the site, excited, only to have everything freeze up on me as I barely began to explore Chapter One. I went and did some other things for a while, checked back in, and this time the site wouldn’t even let me in, and hasn’t since then (messages about too much demand right now, etc). It’s understandable, and I’m willing to be patient (I waited this long, didn’t I?). Hopefully they get things sorted out as best they can (it’s not a bad problem to have, so many fans wanting to experience the site that it’s crashing).
@cb160 – How do you upload a drawing? I haven’t figured that out yet
its hard to give much of a review as ive only been in for two days and therefore not had much time to experience much yet. for starters, they need a load more servers or what have you to keep the site working properly…if the site was up and easy to sign in to every time id really have no complaints. i (and my sister as well) both recommend background music and little noises and sound effects when you click on things (the suits of armor should creak and clang, the potions should bubble, doors should creak, perhaps every time you collect a chocolate frog card it should chime or something…etc) im loving all of the artists renderings, the interactive-ness and the little puzzles. im sure ill have more comments the more i get to use the site.
I’ve been kick out more than I’ve been on but still having fun. Anyone know how you unlock Professor McGonagall? I have tried and tried cant find what to do?
For anyone that has a smart phone… I have found I can get onto the site much more often and more quickly on my phone. While I don’t do potions on my phone, I can look at chapters and see what’s going on in the Ravenclaw common room and the Great Hall…
@ Doxie Click on her
Finally, finally got in!!! Wand: Alder with unicorn core, 10 & 3/4", surprisingly swishy.
I’ve had my email for a few weeks know but I either dont have the time to devote to it or when I do the site is too busy and wont let me in. :/
@cb160 thanks, I’ll try if I ever get back in….
