UPDATE 5: Registration has closed…
Now the waiting for our Welcome Letters begins. :)
UPDATE 4: Clue 7 is still up! There is still time!
UPDATE 3: Screenshot of the Magic Quill
Remember, the Quill will not glow if you do not hover over it. Here’s what the screen should look like:
The banner ad is at the top (above Parseltongue Translator).
The Quill that will glow is the light brown/white striped Quill.
UPDATE 2: Help with the Magic Quill
The Magic Quill will not appear before the Warner Bros. promo finishes playing. When it does finish playing, you will see a banner ad.
The Magic Quill will not glow automatically. You will need to hover your mouse over the Quills to make the Magic Quill glow. Click on the Quill that turns into a sort of blue glowing Quill.
UPDATE: What to do with the Magic Quill
You will be redirected to the Warner Bros. website, where you will watch a promo for the Deathly Hallows 2 movie. Once the promo has finished playing, you will see a small banner ad at the top of your screen. It asks you to find the Magic Quill.
You will need to hover your mouse over the Quills. One of them will change to a blow glowing Quill when you hover over it. Click on that Quill, and it will redirect you to the Congratulations notice, from where you can get to Registration.
If you do not see the promo or the small banner ad, try turning off ad blockers.
Day 7 clue:
Can you find The Magical Quill?
How many Deathly Hallows are there?
Multiply this number by 7.
Here’s what you need to do once you’ve figured out the clue and multiplied by 7:
in your address bar, put the number you’ve derived from multiplying the clue times 7 after the slash, and hit enter.
NOTE: This is NOT the Pottermore address. This is the Quill address. Copy and paste the Quill address given above into your browser address bar but DO NOT HIT ENTER BEFORE adding the solution after the slash at the end. Otherwise, you will end up on the Pottermore website.
DO NOT add www. to the beginning of the Quill address. Otherwise, you will (sadly) land nowhere.
DO HIT ENTER after you have put the solution at the end of the correct Quill address (after the slash).
Once you hit enter, with the correct solution at the end of the Quill address, you will be taken to the Magic Quill.
The Magic Quill will be on a 3rd party website. Do not panic when you see that you have been redirected.
I will go try the challenge myself right now (but not register), so that I can give you more information on what to do with the Magic Quill.
If you run into technical difficulties, TRY AGAIN!
Don’t have a book handy?
Here’s a good breakdown of Deathly Hallows.
Oh, and of course, there’s always the Comments thread below. Some people may just be kind enough to post the answer for you there. :)
Feel free to use the Comments thread to let us know how it is going so that we can help you troubleshoot if you run into difficulties. Comments by people new to the blog may be delayed a little bit, but I’ll work hard to release comments quickly from limbo. :)
