And last, but certainly not least
9:09 pm - Bosnimf
Ok, so Sara is going to announce the champions later today/tonight. But I figured, since all the entries are counted, the points are in, it couldn't harm showing you all the answers to the sections. Have fun looking through them. And remember, it's only a game :)
The section answers are posted in the main tournament forum.

If you were away, and haven't gotten your entries in, please owl BOSNIMF immediatly.
We will be announcing the House Champions as soon as we get the results tallied.

We have just made Kyya and Jelek - Cindy and Joey our new gmods. Most of you already know them seeing how they are very active around this site. We felt they would make good gmods seeing how they are very liked through out the site :)
So please welcome them and show them the same respect you show the rest of our staff.

Some of you have been wondering what's going on.
Well .. we are re-introducing the Potions Game!
If you buy the book called Most Potente Potions you will now have the option to read it. When you do so - it will give you a combination for the Potions Game.
You will need any cauldron and a ladle to play the game.
When you play the game the prizes you get from the different combinations will vary between food items and money. And we upped the money prizes :o)
If you are REALLY lucky you will find the combination for a bottle of Felix Felicis. Once you get that you will get the option to use it. The first time you use it you are guarantied a money prize of 100 galleons. Second time you use it you are guarantied a money prize that can be anything between 5 and 500 galleons. So you'll never know what you might get.
For those who are lazy .. there's a new store in Knockturn Alley that might help you a bit.
Enjoy the game!
On another note - some of you have been wondering why the user I know the number knows so many things. That is because he is the one helping me program right now. So please make sure to thank him for creating chaos in Diagon Alley lol

I have a rather unfortunate announcement to make regarding chess. The chess test in gryffindor confirmed our fear that it would be to big to keep up with. Therefore Sara and I have decided to scrap the chess section from the first house round.
There will be no chess section in this round anymore. However, it will still take place in the interhouse part of the tournament, the big round, so keep practising in case you make the team! The section will not be replaced with another.
We want to thank the Gryffindors for participating in the test for the chess section so enthousiasticly, we're sorry for those that couldn't finish it but would have wanted to
But on a brighter note: The new sections are up! Run, run! Go make them! :D You have untill September 15 to send in your answers! These are the last sections for this round, be sure to do your very best on them!
Also more news in the Tournament HEXtreme forum itself!

So you've all been waiting for us to get classes under way, right? Well wait no more! We're now accepting applications!
Let me say right away, DO NOT OWL ME. Read through this completely, and you will see you are to owl the account called, Teacher Applications. If I get Applications in my account they will be deleted.
For those of you interested. Before I get into the courses you may apply to teach let me clarify that you must include the subject you want to teach as well as the year you want to teach in the subject of the owl to the teaching application account. The courses being offered are the normal ones:
Charms, Defense against the Dark Arts, Care of Magical Creatures, Astronomy, Astrology, Mythology, Transifiguration, History of Magic, Flying Lessons, Arithmany, Muggle Studies, Herbology, Divination, Potions, Ancient Runes, Dueling, History of Hogwarts, History of Modern Wizards.
These Classes will of course be offered for all five years. So please note you can apply To teach years one through five when applying for a any one of these courses.
In addition, last year 4th years were allowed to take Occlumency/legilimency class and Medicinal Magic Class. This year we will offer this to both 4th and 5th years. So you can apply to teach each of these courses at the 4th of 5th year.
Now for the application: In your application, please include a sample lesson for the class you desire to teach. Tell us how often you are on hex in the average week. In addition to this, tell us a bit about what qualifies you to teach the class.
All Applications are to be owled to The Teacher Applications Account You will have until September 21st to get your applications in.

8:53 pm - Bosnimf
Ok So from now on, with the exception of this news post, all news will be posted in the announcement thread in the EH and Tournament forum.
Also The new sections are up! Run run~! :D To prevent any mistakes before hand (although for some, that was to late, Sorry sorry! Didn't mean to give you a heart attack!) The sections ARE posted today. I edited them in the old threads, and changed the titles, because that saved me a lot of work. So don't worry about missing them, you haven't, I just forgot about the posting date. You have 4 days to send in the sections, as of today (Meaning they're due on september 7).
Also the rules in each House Tournament forum are updated with important information! Please check that, and the announcement threads in each house forum as well!

Recently there's been a bit of fighting going on. I would like to remind everybody that I'm not here all the time and even when I am - I dont see everything. If someone is attacking you, harrashing you, being mean to you or you see something or someone who shouldnt be here - you need to owl me. I might not respond right away because my work doesnt allow me to be on as much as I would like. But I do deal with what ever reports you guys send me - even when I dont owl you back saying that something has been taken care of. PLEASE use either the report link or owl me if something is wrong. That is the only way we can fix things.
And speaking of fixing things. We're really short on programmers right now due to John actually having a life. So there's a lot of things that should be fixed but wont be/cant be until John has the time to do it. Sometimes there are just more important things in life :) So right now new users are having problems with getting their wands, auctions are still not working and classes are STILL not up. These things WILL be fixed eventually - I just cant tell you when so we all have to be patient.
Other than that - if anyone have any questions feel free to owl me and I will answer as fast as I can. There's a few more issues on this site that WILL be taken care of sooner or later.
If any of you are still getting popups and firewalls going off because of the infamous trojan that's been roaming around - please let me know with as many details as possible; where it happened, when, what caused it and so on. I think we MIGHT have fixed it thanks to Ashaman :) But let me know if it's still happening.
I think that's all the updates for now. Again - any questions .. rather owl me or a gmod one time too many.
