Who's in? Who doesn't feel like staying up? What really cheesy username did you get?

My boyfriend helped his little sister and me get in on day 3 XP He's so nice :'D

I'm in.

Today's registration is closed now, but I actually was able to get it at around 10:30-ish this morning. They know that there are lots of Harry Potter fans around the world so they are changing the time that the window is open every day, which is good.

I'm in! Day 4; I couldn't stay up that late for the other days, but today's time was quite nice. I'm MarauderCat104, which I really don't mind since I love (most) of the Marauders, and I've been told I'm quite Cat like.

I can't get in because I keep falling asleep. -__-

Anyway, who else is having problems getting the emails? I've been blindly checking the site for clues. According to her twitter, Evanna Lynch is having the same problem.

Got in on the second day.
Username is SilverMist143... but I've seen worst.

ToroSonyCat
08-03-2011, 02:06 PM
I got in!
My username is RoseWalnut8.

I chose that one because it reminded me of Rose from Homestuck and had the least numbers on it XD I think it's pretty decent.

I got in on the first day. I'm WillowSand42. I didn't get my registration email immediately, but since it was 4 in the morning, I just went to sleep and it was in my inbox when I got up at 10.

HidingintheMist
08-03-2011, 03:03 PM
I got in Day 2 after falling asleep on Day 1. WillowMoon44. It had the least amount of numbers, and didn't sound terribly ridiculous

Got in on the second day since I forgot about it the first day. All of the name I got were really stupid sounding, but I'm YewCastle174. I wish I got something better. :/

08-03-2011, 05:16 PM
you know, you could have changed it after registration for beta is closed. i think...>_> someone told me you could choose differently later on BEFORE you get sorted. but they might be full of it.
i'm happy with my name. Got in Day2. at 4-5 i think...i heard it was pretty easy yesterday. -how many Champions times 49 or something.

Vavo Natsumi
08-03-2011, 05:31 PM

That was today's question, The number of Triwizard Champions multiplied by 28.

What was the question on your day everyone?

mine was....multiply the total score of Griffindor vs Slytherin in Harry's 3rd year by 48 or something.

Mine was what chapter was the quidditch match between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor canceled times 49.

Chamber of Secrets, despite being my favorite book, is the only one I don't own. I had to go to the HP wiki to look it up.

I thought it was 42 you had to multiply it by. o_O But I got the same question nevertheless. :P

I'm HeartSpirit182. ... It's cute despite the cheesiness it contains to some. ; w ;

08-04-2011, 01:38 PM
Got in today! I'm FrogPhoenix4.... it was the one with the least numbers. Was lucky that I had Order of the Phoenix randomly in my shelf...

Still waiting for my mail, though.

08-04-2011, 02:06 PM
Just got in! I was sad I couldn't pick my own username but I'm FelicisPotion196. Felix Felicis is "liquid luck", or a potion that brings you luck so I'm pretty cool with it.

Anima-Mort
08-04-2011, 02:44 PM
How did I just find out about this. I'm so ASHAMED.
Registrations for Day 5 have been closed, but tomorrow being Half-Blood Prince, I have an staggering abundance of confidence in myself! :'D

...I'm not sure how much I'm kidding when I say I have a pool of self-esteem reserved for the sole application of egging myself on in the event of any hypothetical Harry Potter-trivia-situations becoming a reality.

I'm loving it too. I mean it's HeartSpirit182 of all things for me. So cheesy and kiddish and legitimately something I would've come up with myself when I was 9.

Haha, yours is quite similar to mine actually, I have something other than "Spirit" and the number it tacked on the end is a palindrome number. I purposely picked that one out of the list because it honestly was something I could have made when I was younger.

I now check my email everyday for that welcome letter.

I actually remembered today, because some twitter friends were guffaw'ing over the answer being 420. None of us do drugs, but being Coloradoans (where the stuff is legal-ish) it provides a stupid laugh.

I think the naming system picked up on my crazy cat lady tendancies. I'm RainCat160.

and OMG i LOVE dressup games XD like, we put on our clothes for Hogsmeade, or we buy quidditch team T's...or house-specific clothing....or witches hats and capes and such...who knows!?

So far I only have one request above all else: When it gets to the sorting hat, Ravenclaw please. (o ^ o );

08-06-2011, 03:24 AM
HollyBludger162 and I'm also PhoenixHazel11. Two. :P

I didn't make the second one because I was trying to be greedy or anything but the first account I made was with a Yahoo! email account and later I heard that there was trouble with Yahoo! receiving emails from Pottermore so I panicked and made the second one with my Gmail account. The main reason I panicked was that I basically learned that Yahoo! would receive the emails slowlier and that in a certain amount of time, activation for accounts expire. Yeah.

I'm going to give one of the accounts to my friend, though, after I can actually access the account and change its information (password, email, etc.). But honestly, I actually do feel pretty bad about it whether you wanna believe me or not.

The reason why people can't make their own username is due to privacy reasons. :B

And I hope I get into Ravenclaw! >3<

Andand I also hope it does have the dress up character thing cause I love doing that kinda stuff.

OR...Make a Harry Potter MMORPG. Beecauuseee, that'd be awesome.

08-06-2011, 11:56 PM
well registration has to close until october.
after that it says, wait a few weeks for your welcome letter...
""You may have to wait a few weeks for your Welcome email to arrive as we can’t let everyone into the Beta site at the same time.""

08-07-2011, 01:11 AM
Well I got in on the second day so hopefully mine comes in soon. I want to be in either Gryffindor or Slytherin. I really like both of the houses and I feel like I'm one of the few people that do.

StrawberrySiren
08-07-2011, 02:29 AM
I really hope I get into Ravenclaw. My grades aren't stellar but I do like learning and I love reading up on stuff. But my school colors are Hufflepuff so I'd settle for that.

Other than having Hufflepuff colors the same as my school, I'm quite the same. XD While I can show that I'm very intelligent and have overachieving qualities, I am very lazy and unmotivated most of the time which leads to my grades being all over the place. (It's the whole alphabet on my last report card!)

So in essence I like learning just for the sake of learning not for a grade. I like to challenge my brain with puzzles and read nonfiction books and have a preference on watching educated-related shows as opposed to Jersey Shore and the like. :P

Lol, I'm exactly the same. I'm too lazy to do all the necessary work for A's in all my classes, but I still do well in them (I try to get no C's as I'm in college). Lol I'll bet my old roommate wondered if I was going to drop out as I sat and played World of Warcraft most of the time.

I still have always loved Ravenclaw and must be in it. It better not be lame like this ooooold Harry Potter site that automatically sorted you in Gryffindor, no matter what your answers were on the survey.

I signed up on the first day within 10 mins when the first clue came out. ;A; I'm desperately waiting for my welcome letter to come. The whole sorting thing is like an identity crisis to me though. XD I only want to be in Gryffindor, but I well know that my personality would put me into Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. There's probably no way I'll get into Slytherin.

Slytherin's are cunning and ambitious.
Griffindor's are super brave and chivalrous.
Ravenclaw's are witty, intelligent, creative, and carry alot of wisdom
Hufflepuffs are insanely loyal and hard working.

Does anyone remember back when the first two HP movies came out, how AWESOME the Harry Potter website was?

There was the Wand Shop which would tell you what wand is right for you.
The Sorting Hat where you answered a series of questions and it sorted you into the right house.
Creating your pet (I think it was out of a cat, owl and rat) to bring along your Hogwarts Journey.

Those were the days!

GOOD GOD I REMEMBERED THAT SITE.

I was extremely picky about how "pretty" my wand should be and kind of rigged the quiz thing so I would get into Gryffindor. >.>
I remembered testing out a spell that would stop a snake from attacking that happened to appear in the common room and was given the assignment on raising my own mandrake. Though I keep forgetting to feed it and it kept dying on me. (; ~ ; )

08-09-2011, 09:46 AM
Personally, I'm going to use this as a chance to determine once and for all what house I fall into. Seriously, every quiz I've found, even the really in-depth ones, give me 50/50 Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw. What better way to get it settled "once and for all" than with an official thingy like Pottermore, I ask?

jaguarlineman
08-09-2011, 09:57 AM
Is it bad that I kind of want to get into Slytherin? Haha. I agree with the fact that the sorting will be the last word on which house I am in. Does anyone have any idea when Pottermore will open up?

Flora88
08-09-2011, 12:16 PM
So...will it ALWAYS choose a username for you? I mean...I like to have a bit of control over my own alias.


Also...I'll end up in either Ravenclaw or Slytherin. It always works that way. Apparently I'm evil scientist material or something.

Assuming the registration process is the same as during the Magical Quill week, it will give you a random list of 5 or so pre-generated usernames that you can pick from. I can't remember if there was a button saying "give me some more username options" or not; it seems like something that SHOULD be there but I went through it a little bit quickly to make sure the registration window didn't close on me, so I can't say.

As much as I love making my own usernames, I like the trend on Pottermore. Except for the numbers. Not a fan of numbers in my usernames.

But they're all Harry Potter related so I like that :D Even if mine is totally cheesy and sounds like I'll definitely be in Hufflepuff.

If you were able to log in, then your account was validated.

And I'm a dork, I didn't read the entire email. After validating it said I would receive a Welcome email in the next few weeks which allowed access to the site. The email I got today said "Congratulations" but says that I've been selected to join the beta for Pottermore, and that I will receive ANOTHER email mid-August to end of September that tells me when I can access the site.

WHY YOU SO CONFUSING POTTERMORE?

I got in on Day 4 of the Magical Quill Quest thingy xD, got my validation email about 3 minutes after I finished registering, I cant wait to get into the actual site.

I was surprised though within about 37 minutes after the clue on Day 4 was released it had already been taken down because it filled up so quickly. I was happy to get in though lol.

I hope I get my welcome letter soon so I can be put in slytherin ^^
Just remember you might not be placed there. :C
I think Slytherin is actually in the lead for the House Cup right now.

Hufflepuff description(Highlight to read):


Congratulations! I’m Prefect Gabriel Truman, and I’m delighted to welcome you to HUFFLEPUFF HOUSE. Our emblem is the badger, an animal that is often underestimated, because it lives quietly until attacked, but which, when provoked, can fight off animals much larger than itself, including wolves. Our house colours are yellow and black, and our common room lies one floor below the ground, on the same corridor as the kitchens.

Now, there are a few things you should know about Hufflepuff house. First of all, let’s deal with a perennial myth about the place, which is that we’re the least clever house. WRONG. Hufflepuff is certainly the least boastful house, but we’ve produced just as many brilliant witches and wizards as any other. Want proof? Look up Grogan Stump, one of the most popular Ministers for Magic of all time. He was a Hufflepuff – as were the successful Ministers Artemesia Lufkin and Dugald McPhail. Then there’s the world authority on magical creatures, Newt Scamander; Bridget Wenlock, the famous thirteenth-century Arithmancer who first discovered the magical properties of the number seven, and Hengist of Woodcroft, who founded the all-wizarding village of Hogsmeade, which lies very near Hogwarts School. Hufflepuffs all.

So, as you can see, we’ve produced more than our fair share of powerful, brilliant and daring witches and wizards, but, just because we don’t shout about it, we don’t get the credit we deserve. Ravenclaws, in particular, assume that any outstanding achiever must have come from their house. I got into big trouble during my third year for duelling a Ravenclaw prefect who insisted that Bridget Wenlock had come from his house, not mine. I should have got a week of detentions, but Professor Sprout let me off with a warning and a box of coconut ice.

Hufflepuffs are trustworthy and loyal. We don’t shoot our mouths off, but cross us at your peril; like our emblem, the badger, we will protect ourselves, our friends and our families against all-comers. Nobody intimidates us.

However, it’s true that Hufflepuff is a bit lacking in one area. We’ve produced the fewest Dark wizards of any house in this school. Of course, you’d expect Slytherin to churn out evil-doers, seeing as they’ve never heard of fair play and prefer cheating over hard work any day, but even Gryffindor (the house we get on best with) has produced a few dodgy characters.

What else do you need to know? Oh yes, the entrance to the common room is concealed in a stack of large barrels in a nook on the right hand side of the kitchen corridor. Tap the barrel two from the bottom, middle of the second row, in the rhythm of ‘Helga Hufflepuff’, and the lid will swing open. We are the only house at Hogwarts that also has a repelling device for would-be intruders. If the wrong lid is tapped, or if the rhythm of the tapping is wrong, the illegal entrant is doused in vinegar.

You will hear other houses boast of their security arrangements, but it so happens that in more than a thousand years, the Hufflepuff common room and dormitories have never been seen by outsiders. Like badgers, we know exactly how to lie low – and how to defend ourselves.

Once you’ve opened the barrel, crawl inside and along the passageway behind it, and you will emerge into the cosiest common room of them all. It is round and earthy and low-ceilinged; it always feels sunny, and its circular windows have a view of rippling grass and dandelions.

There is a lot of burnished copper about the place, and many plants, which either hang from the ceiling or sit on the windowsills. Our Head of house, Professor Pomona Sprout, is Head of Herbology, and she brings the most interesting specimens (some of which dance and talk) to decorate our room – one reason why Hufflepuffs are often very good at Herbology. Our overstuffed sofas and chairs are upholstered in yellow and black, and our dormitories are reached through round doors in the walls of the common room. Copper lamps cast a warm light over our four-posters, all of which are covered in patchwork quilts, and copper bed warmers hang on the walls, should you have cold feet.

Our house ghost is the friendliest of them all: the Fat Friar. You’ll recognise him easily enough; he’s plump and wears monk’s robes, and he’s very helpful if you get lost or are in any kind of trouble.

I think that’s nearly everything. I must say, I hope some of you are good Quidditch players. Hufflepuff hasn’t done as well as I’d like in the Quidditch tournament lately.

You should sleep comfortably. We’re protected from storms and wind down in our dormitories; we never have the disturbed nights those in the towers sometimes experience.

And once again: congratulations on becoming a member of the friendliest, most decent and most tenacious house of them all.

Maaaaan, watch me be a Hufflepuff when I actually DO do the Pottermore thing. Or a Gryffindor.
No hate or anything. I've just always, always been either a Ravenclaw or a Slytherin, and I'm a bit used to it by now. Suddenly being a Hufflepuff or a Gryffindor after twelve-plus years of online quizzes would just be...odd. And it would be the last one. It would be about as "official" as you could get.

Ah, a fellow(possibly mis-sorted) Hufflepuff. Rowling made the quiz herself, but still. I just feel so out of place being a "puff". The description didn't fit me at all.

Of course I can't speak for everyone else and I simply got lucky/looking into the bright side of things (finally getting in and whatnot). I know I would seriously flip if I somehow got sorted in Gryffindor when I'm too much of a wuss. XD I do agree on feeling that the quiz could have been more in-depth according to our personalities.

Sound effects/background music would be really nice. Imagining myself screaming at the top of my lungs upon seeing Fluffy wasn't so awesome when they couldn't growl through my earphones. >.>

The quiz seemed really random to me as well. And though in the Hufflepuff description they said they were the least-boastful house, the description seemed overly boastful to me. =/

One of the things I've noticed is there are days when there is a flood of new people to one house, and the rest get seemingly next to nothing compared to the other house's increase(they still get people). I've seen it happen more than once.. but heck, I might be imagining it all.

I haven't been on in over a week now due to there being nothing at all to do.

I was kind of hoping from the beginning there would be a forum of sorts. The only way I really communicate with people is through the common room comments, but even so its extremely difficult to have a conversation that way. I sent in a suggestion about that, but we'll see.

Bah, it's been so long that I don't even remember with complete certainty what my username is, and from glancing at the Pottermore emails in my inbox it wasn't included there. Fooey.

Whenever you get your official welcome email that will let you into the site(titled: "Your Pottermore account is ready! Step this way...‏"), Your username will be on it.

It was random for me, just saying. I got about four questions about musical instruments... Its probably changed since I got in, so it might not be as random anymore.

I have a 10 3/4 Dogwood wand with a Unicorn core. It's surprisingly swishy.
What the next gateway is for will probably be revealed later, I personally dont think I'll sign up for another account. I heard they're going to ban people that will/are do that.

So according to what I read us Puffs are loyal, hardworking, trustworthy, friendly and excellent finders.

I'm in Slytherin, too!

To be honest my second choice was probably Hufflepuff since that's my actual school colors. But I can see where I fit into Slytherin, too.

Some of the stuff is a little boring. And I would love to play wizard's chess. I know it would be exactly like actual online chess. But still.

Also, more chances to get galleons would be nice.
