Club Creation: Fixes & Upgrades

12:00 am - HPfanextrm

Hmm. Let's see if I still know how to do this..
Clubs are home to many user-run communities on HEX, and after nearly two years, the ability to create new ones returns. Have you started one yet? Perhaps you're already president of a successful organization and dreamed of launching another. We have you covered there too. Club Upgrades have been reworked to entice the more successful union builders. The changes to Upgrade 2 and Upgrade 3 are as follows:

Upgrade 2 Requirements:

  • Have not been sent to Azkaban in 3 months
  • Have been using HEX for 6 months
  • Be a president in 1 club: this club must be at least 1 month old and consist of at least 25 members
Cost: 5,000,000 G

Upgrade 3 Requirements:
  • Have unlocked Upgrade 2
  • Have not been sent to Azkaban in 3 months
  • Have been using HEX for 6 months
  • Be a president in 2 clubs: each club must be at least 1 month old and consist of at least 35 members
Cost: 10,000,000 G

I'm sure many of you have zeroed in on the increase in cost for upgrades. After careful consideration, we determined these values would ensure that the best club leaders could afford to begin a second or third venture when weighed against the potential database space that additional clubs for every user on the site would occupy. However, to celebrate these long overdue fixes, I'm happy to announce that Upgrade 2 will be 50% off, or 2,500,000 G, until Monday, October 14 11:59 PM HEX time. During this time, the minimum 1 month old club requirement for Upgrade 2 will also be suspended. In essence, if you start a club today and are able to attract 25 members, you can create your second club within 7 days at the reduced rate.

On a smaller, but still just as important note, all of your club-related user events will feature a new icon just like the one depicted at the top of this post. Thanks, Julie! Additionally, you can now prevent your club from trending on the Clubs Directory page via your club's Settings.

Finally, did you know that there was more than one type of club? There are actually two, Standard and Order. Standard clubs are clubs as you've always known them. Order clubs are unique in that you may only be a member of one Order club. This was never well documented or communicated to users (even I wasn't aware of this distinction until I took on the project), so we linked a small note next to Club Type on a club's description page.

More than a dozen changes were made to Clubs behind the scenes to increase their security and avoid some (potentially) catastrophic incidents, but most of those won't actually be visible. Now go start a new club!
