Waiting patiently to be let in still. Though I did write a song called “I’m Still Waiting (For My Pottermore Email)” to keep myself busy while I wait! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Vhc-n03zmY

the annoying part is is that when the magic quill started I was under the impression (i’m sure it said this) that it would be first come, first serve. Now I know I wasn’t first but I’ve been waiting at least two weeks, I just want my owl!

I got in last week. Would like to give hope for some of you today. They sent out welcome emails on Friday last week and I didn’t receive mine until Saturday morning at 4:45 am CST, so just because it’s not in your inbox NOW, doesn’t mean you aren’t in today’s batch. Hang in there!

I got access about 5 days into the emails going out. I’ve been through Philosopher’s Stone about 4 times, and I think its great! There’s no music to go along with it, which doesn’t bother me too much, but I must admit I find myself listening to Hedwig’s theme whilst on Pottermore. The brewing of potions can be a bit tedious, because you have to be dreadfully precise. I’ve not been able to do wizard dueling yet because it still says that its temporarily down, which bothers me. The site’s been live for about a month now and still no dueling? There’s got to be something that can be done to fix that. I thought the sorting process was quite fun, as was getting my wand (Elm with unicorn core, 14 and 1/4 inches, hard). I am very much looking forward to exploring the rest of the books in due course.

I’ve been checking mine too just like that!! It’s so frustrating!! I got in oh the fourth day…so if third day people still aren’t getting in yet….I’ll have a bit to wait I suspect.

I registered on day 2, and I got in yesterday… Really enjoyed it so far, but glad it’s still beta because it’s still very glitchy and the whole thing needs music or sound fx. Btw newtstorm88 is my pottermore user name and I’m in Ravenclaw so feel free to add me when you get chance.

I got in about two weeks ago, but feeling very guilty because there’s so many people who haven’t got their’s yet!
