Thanks! Good to see numbers creeping up. Wonder if there will or won’t be a batch going out today… Have seen a few excited tweets but don’t know if it’s from a new batch or just email lag from yesterday.

I definitely had an email lag yesterday. I got my letter 10 hours after the update on Insider said they were sent.

Still no e-mail. I happen to have a lot of free time right now, which will be ending next week. I’m sure that’s when I’ll get my e-mail too.

I think they don’t want people to get to know each other in private, only in the group form of the common room. Protects the site from pedaphiles and such. If you don’t want everyone to see it, you can’t say it.

Right, but then why say “Please make sure you know a person before accepting their friend request” or whatever it says? How CAN you know them, unless you know them from your real life?

@ Livi22-((ROAR!!)) pg 1 of the form: it’s not for you to feel guilty bc the rest of us have not gotten in yet. I’m a day 6’er and I’m glad you’re in bc it means that you can tell the rest of us what it’s like- by the way congratulations.
When you guys get in can you tell us what “day” you are so we can keep up with what days are getting in.
@Matea pg 3 and @ tim_2006 pg 2: you are day 3 and 4 and day 3,4,5,6, and 7??? You applied for multiple accounts? Maybe that is why you are not in bc I believe someone mentioned tht they eliminated those with multiple accounts.
@ fawkes4444 I’m with you. I was thinking the same. I’m a day 6’er too. Welcome aboard day 6’ers MagicalMe and MagicBclPlyr. I’m glad to hear from you.
Thanks @ Gene ROAR and @ Vicki_The_House_Elf ROAR ϟ , on pg 6 of this forum, @ songbird, elanor17,and Mad But Happy on pg 7 for those great updates.
Congratulations to all who got in and an especially strong congratulation to @purplehogwarts who has been so voiceful on previous PM forms.

Congrats from me too, purplehogwarts! Last count I saw on Twitter was 222.717 students – though I’m not in yet, I’m a day 4.

However because of privacy they have no way to verify if i created multiple accounts. I have not blabbed my screen names on any website.How could the verify anything? If i created different emails and using actual relatives names. They sure couldn’t.

songbird: It actually says “please make sure you know who they are before you accept” which isn’t as strict as knowing them.

@ tim_2006 Yea, but if you use the same IP, they can have at least suspicions… By the way, just having fun with Twitter – some portuguese speaker was complaining about making two accounts and having been sorted into Slytherin on BOTH… Ha!

Is it too late to get in? I don’t know how to do it.

Why would anyone have multiple accounts? I can’t think of one legitimate reason for that. Am I missing something?
