Before this 7-7-7 thing, I totally thought that at midnight (+0 GMT), it would just open, and the first million to register would get in. I was out at a lake during their midnight, so I brought my iPod, but it kept telling me the site was overwhelmed and automatically refreshing itself. biggrin.gif Stupid me. Should've known J. K. was smarter than that. But I still missed the clue.

What was the clue for yesterday?

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.


yeah my email was maybe 3 minutes after like 3 minutes of read answer grab feather and register. I think you're right about the first beta testers thing or at least I hope you're right. I want in ASAP and get sorted officially (I'm hoping Hufflepuff but so long as it's not slytherin I'll be super pleased. if it is slytherin well I will then know that's where I belong).

(This is Peter btw incase you didn't know)

Can you find The Magical Quill?
Day 1 clue

How many breeds of owl are featured on the Eeylops Owl Emporium sign?
Multiply this number by 49.

It went something like this

"How many kinds of owls are on the Eeylops Owl Emporium Sign? Multiply this number by 49."

Ahhhhhhh noooooooooo!!!!!!! I woke up at 6 am today my time and I looked on the site and the clue was still up! I found the magic quill and everything... it said "continue your magical journey" and I was soooo excited! But when I came back to the site it said that registeration for day 2 was closed sad.gif Wahhh!!! I knew I should have gotten up at 4 in the morning!

I was sooo close sad.gif Talk about a disappointment! Ugh sad.gif

Since it set by JK, I bet the clue is open a bunch of hours ahead England time. I would check in the Middle of the Night like one or two am lol.

I will check PotterMore starting at 1am CST and keeping checking it until 4 am to see if the clue is up. I will remember the time I checked it at and post here so people have more of a grasp when they need to check pottermore

It seems to me that it is an hour later each night.The first night it came up 4am EST and last night it was 5am EST.But we will have to see tonight.

I also have a feeling that we won't actually be able to get sorted untill we reach the sorting hat scene in the Sorcer's Stone.Which I think is really cool because it will kind of give us that feeling that we are going to Hogwarts and wondering what house we might be in.

Yeah, I was going to add the times of the initial openings and note that they are changing. It's hard to determine exactly when it will be open because knowing JK it will be going steady for 3 days 4-5-6am and then it will jump to 8pm.

Your best bet it is to check periodically I guess. That's what I did. Also.. do NOT rely on any fan predictions of times they have all been wrong so far lol xD Thats what killed me the first night.

Lastly, you guys should also know that each Pottermore Link will possibly be taking you to a different site each day/night. For example I think the first night you had to catch a Magical Quill that was floating with a bunch of normal quills, however last night I got taken to the Harry Potter Warner Bros site and merely had to click on a picture of the Magical Quill on the page.

So, the point of what I just said is do not be deterred if you end up on Youtube from your answer. This does NOT mean your answer is wrong! That's what I thought initially, but that isn't the case. If your answer in the link is wrong you will be taken to either a page that is not found or back to the Pottermore site with the clue still up.

Clue 1
How many breeds of owl are on the Eyelops Owl Emporium sign? Multiply this by 49.
Answer: 5 breeds;; 245

Clue 2
What is the number of the chapter in which Professor McGonagall cancels the Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff? Multiply this number by 42.
Answer: Chapter 14;; 588

It says on the pottermore insider blog that Clue 3 will be released between 9 am and 5 pm BST, which is I think 4 am to 8 am EST.
