Ok as you guys may or may not know J.K Rowling has opened Pottermore wih more information o how to get in early!!!And this would beee....the magical quill!Yes,you heard me right we have to track down the magical quill!Now as it says on Pottermore:

The Magical Quill detects the birth of magical children and writes their name down in a large book. To find out if your name is in the book, you need to find The Magical Quill and then submit your registration details on Pottermore.

That is exactly what it says the magical quill is!Now on more what we have to do is:

The Magical Quill detects the birth of magical children and writes their name down in a large book. To find out if your name is in the book, you need to find The Magical Quill and then submit your registration details on Pottermore.

There will be a new clue every day, and each clue will relate to a different book in the Harry Potter series. On Day 1 the clue will relate to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, on Day 2 the clue will relate to Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and so forth. The clues will also vary in difficulty. On Days 1-3 the clues will be harder, and on Days 4-7 the clues will be easier.(From the Pottermore Insider)

To find The Magical Quill, you need to solve the clue and add the answer to the end of the web address http://quill.pottermore.com/ This will lead you to a website where The Magical Quill will be located while early access places are available. The Magical Quill’s location will change every day.(Also from the Pottermore Insider)


Again her exact words!Now I know most of you want to ask where the clue is but it's not posted. sad.gif On the official Pottermore blog it says:The first clue will be at an unannounced time on the 31st.So yeah we are gonna have to wait. sad.gif

Now the main reason I created this topic so we can discuss,talk,and share what we would like to see in Pottermore!Also if you find out the clue does come up post it here so we all have a great shot at getting on early!!

Now to celebrate this ocassion with some pictures!!!So we can all see the awesomeness of this site!

What time do they start announcing when the Magical Quill is up? I'm in the GMT + 8 timezone so IDK what time it officially starts, and even I myself am not sure if the main site is located in England or America so I'm muddled as to what time I should get online and look for that clue. Bleargh!

That rather ticks me off. What, must I get up at 1AM just to try and find the bloody quill? I got on Pottermore literally the first thing this morning and today's chance was already closed! >.< 7 Books, 7 Days, 7 Chances. But they should seriously take into account that people all around the world want in and not everyone lives in the same timezone. It is unfair to those who are still sleeping when the daily chance is opened. sad.gif

they're going to take into consideration the different time zones by releasing the clue at different times, since some people would be sleeping when it was released today so it might be released like midday tomorrow for them and evening or middle of the night for others

Yeah the clue was released at 3 am CST. I managed to get in so it was worth staying up late. But for those that are going to try for the clue tomorrow, keep your chamber of secrets book nearby. Anyway, I'm super excited, apparently anyone who registers during the magical quill period gets to be a beta tester, though it might take a couple weeks to get the email.

I stayed up almost all night but I got to the clue solved it and registered and got my validation email all in about 6 minutes which is the fastest that I know of. Did anyone get through quicker? Anyone still waiting? Also I hear yahoo's having trouble getting the emails through so I would suggest not using a yahoo email to get through if your trying for the next 6 days.

Mine came straight after I registered, maybe like 2 minutes max. My guess is people who got there validation email super quick are going to be some of the first beta testers.

Okay, so scratch Yahoo for email validation. I'll be using my Google one. As for which one I'm not completely sure which one to use... since I get the passwords mixed up at times.

Now I am seriously going to wait for that chance so I can register. Erghhhh.
