Pottermore Insider, the official blog for Pottermore, has revealed that early beta access to the online Potter adventure has officially begun! The Pottermore team has revealed that only a small number of the one million beta registrants will receive welcome emails for the first round of the beta, as the team is staggering invites to ensure that the process goes smoothly. Fans who did not receive welcome emails today can expect them to arrive any time between now and the end of September.
From the blog entry:
The most important thing to know is that we need to stagger entry to the ‘Beta’ (early) version of Pottermore so we can properly collect all the feedback. To begin with, we’ll be inviting a very small number of people onto the website, so you may not receive your Welcome email straight away.
We’ll be sending those Welcome emails out over the coming weeks and, once yours arrives, you’ll be able to log in and start helping us develop the Pottermore experience.
As Pottermore Beta users, you’ll be exploring all the different elements of the site and, hopefully, sharing your thoughts with us along the way. How? By using the ‘Beta feedback’ button. You’ll find it located at the bottom right-hand corner of every page on the site.
The team has also revealed that fans who were not able to receive a beta invite during the week-long Magic Quill process should expect to be able to register for Pottermore soon! Fans who signed up to be notified of the Pottermore registration site’s opening will begin receiving emails soon. Fans who received “Congratulations!” emails last week do not need to sign-up, as they have already been registered to use the website.
