[EDIT] I have successfully registered in Pottermore.
For an early look into Pottermore, click here.
I have yet to gain access to the Pottermore registration interface (blame it on Sunday oversleeping) but I figured I’d post about the process to facilitate it for those who, like me, will attempt to gain access in the next six days.
When you access the Pottermore website, you will find a riddle for you to answer. Today’s riddle (or clue as it was named) was: How many breeds of owl are featured on the Eeylops Owl Emporium sign? Multiply this number by 49.
Once you get the answer, which in this case was 245, you have to use it to access a new webpage that will give you access to the magic quill.
To access this new webpage, you need to write down your answer at its end, meaning: http://quill.pottermore.com/245 (tomorrow’s answer will be different, so the addition naturally changes as well).
Once the new page loads, you’ll have to locate the Magic Quill, which for those of you who don’t know, is sort of a book where the names of every wizard and witch is written so they can be invited to Hogwarts once they turn eleven.
Once you locate the Magic Quill, you will be invited to start your journey – literally.
Once you “start your journey,” you go through a series of registration steps where you have to fill out your name, email, age, country of residence, etc…
If the person wanting to register is below 13 years of age, they only need to provide a first name and their guardian/parent’s email address.
Once the data input is done, you are presented with a list of famous magical people, including your name.
Then you’ll get to choose a username, which is not a free process apparently: they give you a selection of five usernames to choose from. Hopefully you’ll get to change that later on, but I doubt it.
Then, after selecting your username, a confirmation email is sent to you in order to activate your registration.
When done, you will be prompted with a new page telling you that you will receive the email telling you that you can test Pottermore in the coming few weeks.
Good luck everyone.
