Item Creation/Approval for Events
The guidelines for requesting items for events on HEX have been updated and are now much clearer/cohesive. As always, all things pertaining to sitewide events can be found in the The Collaborative Event Calendar Forum, and should be accessible by every mod/forum mod/house staff/etc. member of HEX.
If this pertains to you in any way, please review the new post and be aware of them in the event you ever need to hold an event in which you need items.

January 20, 2011Major Changes and Updates
As Rima mentioned below, Hex has indeed moved up to the PG-13 rating from PG. This decision was made for many reasons, one of the main ones being that factually, 90% of active users are thirteen and older. Also, as many of you may remember, in 2010, we took a global, detailed poll asking everyone what they thought about switching to PG-13. Here are the results:
There are changes afoot
Yes, it's true. HEX is going PG-13.
Many of you have noticed that the terms have been updated to fix inconsistencies, to make things clearer and there is now material that will be allowed that wasn't allowed before.
However, all the elements necessary for this change are not in place yet. There will be provisions and protections specially designed for users under the age of 13 such as a word filter that cannot be turned off until the user is 13, and even if you are over the age of 13 you will have the ability to turn on the filter to block out many of the newly allowed words.
Until these extra elements are in place the site staff do request that you show some restraint with these new rules. For example, do not post thread titles which include the newly allowed words until you see a new newspost outlining the more specific details of this move.
If the staff feel that material posted does not show the proper restraint then it will simply be edited.
Thank you for your patience during this change.
