After a long wait since the Magic Quill contest began this past August, the Official Pottermore Blog has announced that Pottermore.com will officially be opening to the public. Not everyone will be able to access the site at once. You will first be asked to create an account (similar to those who won access to the closed Beta phase) and will later receive an invite to come join in the fun! There will be invites going out to new members over the next couple of days, so be sure to sign up as soon as possible. This staggered invite system is most likely put in place to prevent the servers from crashing, as there are many Harry Potter fans who have been waiting to experience Pottermore.
Those of you who won Beta access this past summer will be happy to hear the site is up and running once again. You can compete in potion brewing and duels to win house points, or go back and explore “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone” once again. New content will be added in the coming months to Pottermore, including six more books to explore and collect new information about the wizarding world!
