got my email this morning! though had to wait after school to get in but still. It’s definitely worth the wait guys, so hang in there! I’m in hufflepuff (as expected) and it’s great to find out about a less known house

Congrats, Rumble! Good to see more of our ranks getting in!

And I was thrilled to see the “going out daily” post from the Insider when I got home a few minutes ago! I’m so happy to be wrong about the pause :D

Of course, the immediate question I have is, Are they going to try to get everyone else in in these next two weeks, or will there still be some folks left out until after that? I can’t leave well enough alone, can I? ;) I hope they’re aiming to get everyone in, as that would allow them a week or so in September without new registrants in order to work on remaining issues.

Congrats @Rosmerta&Rumble! I still haven’t got my letter; @MagicBclPlyr Glad to see I was right yesterday about the pause being out of the picture, and don’t be afraid, I also feel they’ll get everyone in, just remember the update mentioned that things may change on the way, according with how the site is reacting to the amount of ppl.

@MagicBclPlyr Still 43,000 to complete 2 day’s amount, I guess. More or less… But since I’ve heard ppl from day 3 have already gotten their mail, I’m a bit confused.

Already 2K more: 245,626

@cb160: I wonder if they’re going “roughly” in the order of days? Or maybe a chunk of day 2s haven’t checked their email yet? I’m confused, too.

cb160: Remember however that there were problems with email in the first couple of days and Pottermore reported that about 10% of emails were invalid. These would reduce the numbers of successfully verified accounts, so we should expect the first couple of days to have less than the average number of people.

I agree with roonwit. Also, it takes some time till you make it to the sorting stage. I also had a 10 hour delay from when my Welcome email was sent and when I actually received it in my mailbox. I suspect those numbers will increase as the night progresses.

I’m a day 6 too. I figure some time in the next 2 weeks so I keep checking my email. Also the spam folder since my first email was sent there. Thanks to all for the student counts and to you who have gotten your owls thanks for telling us what day you found your quill :o)
