Because of recent events with the hurricanes, Sara and I have decided to postpone the start of the chess section untill monday september 5 (at least). We trust you will all understand our decision to do this., hex will be around longer, the time needed for the tournament is not set in stone. Those affected by the hurricanes need our support, and we still want to give them a chance to be able to participate.
There will be more special arrangements for those affected by the Hurricanes if they still wish, and are able to participate. Contact Sara Potter or Bosnimf if that is the case. We also trust that this will not be taken advantage off, we can and will notice if that happens, and as you may understand, we have little respect for anyone who takes advantage of a situation like this, and there will be concequenses if you do so.
Also, because of Hex being down, you all have 24 extra hours, from the moment this is posted, to send in your chess information. You also have an additional 24 hours to send in your section answers (meaning it is now due on friday). Again, for those affected by the Hurricanes will be a special arrangement.

Aggie and I have a way for you to make some Galleons. We need Section Leaders for the Wizard Chess portion of the Tournament.
Title: Section Leader
Responsibility: To moniter the chess games, taking screen shots after each set of moves (white and black) and post them. You may take responsibility for as many games as you feel you can moniter.
Who can Apply: Anyone can apply. Even if you are participating in the tournament. The only stipulation is that you can not moniter your own game.
You will only be able to moniter games in your own house.
Payment: 100 Galleons per Game.
OWL BOSNIMF TO APPLY
10:21 pm - Sara Potter
Head to the Tournament Forum to cheer on our contestants.
Contestants-please enter the contest forum through the doors at the top. Beware the dangers that await you!

Momentarily there is a bug with getting permanent wands, and you will be unable to get a wand when trying. This will be fixed as soon as possible.
Also about sorting, once accepted onto the site, your account still has to be aproved before you will recieve a link to sorting. This may take a while (up to a week or two).
Eating and Drinking:
To be able to post on HEX, you must eat and drink. It will say under your name, where you find how much money you're carrying etc., that you're 'dying' behind 'hunger' and 'thirst'. To eat and drink, you must go to Diagon Alley and buy drinks and food. Then go to your inventory, click on one of the drink/food items, and select 'eat/drink it at once' and click submit. That is how you feed yourself on HEX, and when the status behind 'Thirst' and 'Hunger' becomes white, you can post and talk in the forums.
I hope that these answer the three most pressing questions for new members at the moment. Any more questions, feel free to ask them in our Welcome Forum (which is meant especially for new members), check the Newbie FAQ, which is also set up especially for new members to get all the info they need, or owl one of the Global Moderators with your question if you can't find the answer in the FAQ or the Welcome Forum.
Also: Welcome to HEX :)

This year HEX presents:
Battle of the houses!
Gather around to hear all about it!
The tournament will have 4 teams, one for each house, battle against each other in the 9 sections of the tournament. The House team that wins will have instant fame and fortune and not only for them, but for their entire house!
To pick the teams, we start off the tournament in each house sepperatly with smaller, less complex versions of the sections to work through. The 3 members with the highest score at the end of Round One of the tournament will form the team that battles in the name of their house against the other houses.
The house that wins will earn 100.000 galleons to their house account. The team members of the winning team will win an Invisibility cloak!
All the details about the tournament, how to participate, the rules, etc. can be found in Tournament HEXtreme forum!
But to give the tournament the grand opening it deserves, we start off with a ball for all four houses (during which you can sign up to participate in the tournament)! All you need is some house pride and a good mood here! Now turn that music up and let the games begin!!!

As we said previously, once July is over, you will be allowed to talk about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in any forum on Hogwarts Extreme.
Note that you MUST use spoiler tags if it is not in a designated HBP forum.
This also means you do not need to use the spoiler tag at all in the HBP forums. View at your own risk.
