The Newsstand's F.A.Q

Welcome to the Publication Frequently Asked Questions. We have compiled all the questions we all get asked a lot. Hopefully, these will help get you the answers you want.


- How can I access these publications?
If you look at the sidebar under SUBSIDIARIES you will see a link, The Newsstand. Click on it and it will transport you to forum 109. There will be an image map :



You can access the publications via the shortcuts from the image map.


- When will the next issue be out?
The Quibbler is published on the 3rd of each month and the Daily Prophet is published on the 16th of every month. The WWN is currently on a hiatus, but do keep a lookout for its return!

- Are you hiring?
Each publication (The Quibbler, WWN and the Daily Prophet) might have different hiring windows, but rest assured, if these publications are looking to hire new writers/anchors, an official announcement will be made. Be sure to check the Entrance Hall often.

- I read in your paper/heard on the latest show that you are looking to hire new writers/hosts. How can I sign up for this?
Each publication has a different application form. For the Quibbler, please owl Zoe for further information. For WWN, please owl Nicole for further information. For the Daily Prophet, please owl Erika for further information.

- I'm not a writer or a host, but I would like to participate in these publications. Is there a way for me to do that?
Sure there is! You can submit a song/audio to WWN or vote for WWN's HEXian of the month. You can also suggest monthly themes as well as participate in their monthly poll. The Daily Prophet also accepts guest articles and you can also write in to the Ask Us! column for advice.

- I know my house has a paper. Do the other houses have their own papers as well?
Yes, each of the Houses on HEX has their own publication. You can head over to THIS thread for more information.

- I need to contact WWN/The Quibbler / The Daily Prophet staff, but I don't know who they are. Where can I find this information?
You can find all the information in these threads - WWN, The Quibbler and the Daily Prophet.

-I have some serious concerns about these publications. Who can I contact to share my concenrns?
You can owl the respective editors, or you can direct all your inquiries to Nicole2013 (Nicole) and Artemis Eve (Art).

- I have a few ideas for the publications and The Newsstand. Where can I post them?
We welcome any ideas that can help to improve the publications and this forum. Please post them in HERE.



User-Led Publications


The Newsstand is ever-evolving and we are glad to see that some of you have taken an interest in setting up your very own publication. To help you find your way around, we have dedicated a section to address any queries related to user-led publications.

-I am interested in creating my own publication. Where do I sign-up?
You may begin by registering your publication with us the the Directory HERE.

-Am I allowed to create threads in The Newsstand for the purpose of running my publication?
Yes, you may. Each publication is only allowed to maintain a maximum of 3 official threads in The Newsstand at any one time, limited to the following categories:
1. Planning
2. Advertisements, Recruitment of staff/writers
3. The actual publication

Once you have created your thread, post the url in the Directory. You may begin every issue in a new thread. Each issue will be active for a default number of 30 days, after which the issue will be locked and archived in the Directory.


-Wait, so I am actually allowed to advertise in The Newsstand?
Yes, you may advertise in the adverts thread that has been assigned to your publication, but adverts are restricted to the following types:
- Advertisements soliciting for adverts for your publication.
- Advertisements for hiring personnel for your publication.
- Advertisements inviting readers to submit questions / entries to your publication.


- Am I allowed to have a section on Adverts in my publication?
Yes, each publication is allowed to have their own page on Adverts in their publication like a regular newspaper. Advertisements for dorms, clubs, raffles etc are allowed, so long as the content adheres to the corresponding forum-specific rules, as well as the HEX Terms:
HEX Terms
Shopping Forums
Arts & Graphics Forum
Clubs Forum


-So how do I go about presenting my publication?
It's really up to you! You may post your issue in a thread in The Newsstand, in a thread in your own club or shop forum, in a different website such as Tumblr and so on.

-I would really love to code my publication in html. How do I do that?
You may post your publication in a forum where you are a mod or an admin (in a club or in your shop forum for instance). You may also post your publication in an off-HEX website such as Tumblr. If you choose to post your publication in The Newsstand, BBCode works well too.

The watch thread post said that the August issue of the Quibbler was up, but when I click the link I can't find the August issue. Just wondering if this was a either a mistake, or I'm not looking in the right place.

Edit: I found the August issue by changing the month name in the URL. However, it appears that the August issue isn't indexed on thequibs.com page with the other issues, which is why I couldn't find it.

I've asked our coder to add the issue to the archive, but she's been busy and hasn't gotten to it yet. Once it's been added, it'll pop up. Apologies for the delay and confusion!

We are working on setting things up in the GHOST forum right now. We hope to have a new issue out either in September or early October.

Very helpful!

You said that the WWN is broadcasted on the 7th of each month, but on the WWN website ( http://wizardingwirelessnetwork.com) it says the last broadcast was on the 1st of November 2015... ?

@AZ_09 WWN is currently on a hiatus of sorts.
We have lost all of our hosts, and I am planning on revamping WWN so we do not have as many issues with hosts (such as not getting applicants when we open apps, etc) and how it runs.

@Emlspicer Hope I'm not too late. If you go to the Newsstand, there's an image there. In the image, there are some Daily Prophet newspapers. Just click on that and it should take you to December's edition.
