The Hex Pranksters is needing someone to make a page for them. I talked to Fred to last night and he will be gone for another week. We are needing someone that can make a page for us. Zirius (YouKnowWho), Darkshady and myself will be picking the winner. I still need to talk over with them about a prize and what it should be. I will post that at a later date.

Suggestion for the classes :
Teacher(s) can post up a lesson every week/2 weeks/a month depends on the homework/status of the classes.
Note : Please increase the lesson number to make the lesson unique (in order for the system to work) 0 = no lesson. 1 = 1st lesson. 2 = 2nd lesson and so forth.
Points earned are saved in the database so don't worry about not getting the points. We've something to sort out first before posting the score to the housepoint board.
4:11 pm - Hoojx
Most of the teachers have been choosen. Teachers are now able to update their classes.
Some basic instructions about the class editor.

Ha! This must be the day for breaking news! A recent JKR interview reveals that Book 5 could be coming out fairly soon, acording to the author herself. Read some of the interview below:
...Lizo: There have been quite a few rumours about when book five will be out - when do you think it'll be ready?
JK: There's a lot of book done - that's all I want to say because if I give a date and then I pass it everyone will be upset.
I will say that I have a beginning, a middle and an end - you could read it all the way through and I know a lot of Harry Potter fans will say just give it to us but I'm perfectionist and I want a bit more time to tweak.
I really am getting there and I have to laugh when I read the bits about writers block because I don't think I've ever been blocked in my life!
I'm loving the writing and now the revising and I'm getting on really well.
Lizo: You can't tell us whether that will be weeks or month?
JK: I'd rather not say just in case I have a bus accident and things get knocked off track! It won't be too long - that's all I'll say!
Lizo: Is there anything that you can tell us about book five? Any new characters?
JK: Well, we've obviously got a new Defence Against The Dark Arts teacher because Professor Moody wouldn't want the job again having been locked in a trunk for a year! It's a woman this time.
You may see a little more of Mundungus and there's a new sorting hat song.
Lizo: Is the book going to be as long as book four was?
JK: Yes, it is looking that way - it's already passed Azkaban, so I think yes, we are looking at Goblet of Fire length.
Lizo: Finally, what's your message to children who've been waiting for the next book for a two and half years?
JK: It's coming and it's a lot nearer than you'd think if you read some newspapers - just trust me.
10:56 am - laszlo
ok, i got it wrong john :P
here is the right explination for it :P
Buy stocks in the ministry of magic, because if you buy stocks in the ministry, the price of the stocks will rise, and that means a lot more dosh for you.. hehe

2:24 am - Hoojx
Someone cast a spell and add a weird rule into the school rule recently :
'Those who laugh out loud will be punished, they'll lost one HP'
We've removed that rule added by an unknown people. We've informed the ministry of magic to investigate on this prank.
2:14 am - Hoojx
There are something wrong with the house elves in the last few hours. They're giving a lot of foods to the students, range from 50 to 100 foods. We've removed the spell from the elves.
This event is still being investigated.
7:37 pm - laszlo

1:34 pm - Ginny890
I asked once before that people need to stop using caps to post. It is very annoying and concidered to be rude by many people. It even say on the thing you make your post... "- No BIG caps for all the words. (You'll be punished in some way that you don't know ;))"
Also don't do it all in caps and then put one letter in lower case. I will warn you once. After that it will be deleted.
Also about the %%username%%* thing. If you don't like it do NOT use it.
3:48 pm - Hoojx

10:10 pm - John
On September 11th, here is what will happen:
All of HEX will be disabled except for 1 forum and the September 11th store. The forum will be to talk about the tragidy, and such.
If you disagree, you may leave as HEX will be back to normal the next day. One time, we took a poll and we found out more americans were on here than anyone else, this is why we will be doing this.
9:47 pm - John

Ok, stop it please.. its about classes, i am getting owls from here, there and everywhere about classes.. so here is what im gonna say..
1. If you use your noggin and think about it, registration for classes go down on the 14th septemeber (according to Hoojx and John), so it might mean classes start on the 14th or 15th.
2. Because im a teacher, it doesnt mean i dont know how you become one, or when classes will be up, sorry.
3. If i get any more owls about classes which arent important ill delete them AND if i get any owls, like i did 2 minutes ago with swearing words in, then I will report you to a administrator..
P.s these following people are not admins on hex ::
Everyone except for Hoojx, John, Hannah, GoldenLugia (Still missing), Darkshady, Sapphire_Frenzy and Fred_Weasley (i think, im sorry fred if i got it wrong).. No one else is a admin.
Im sorry if im a bit harsh in this post, but good day to you all ;)

9:03 am - John
Sorry that teaching jobs are going slow, I've just been busy with my own programming the past few days. ;) A assure you I will have them chosen this weekend. Thanks and thank you for being patient!
2:30 pm - Hoojx
I've changed the members online limit from 100 to 130 to allow more users to get online at a same time. (and this will also cause the server to be really busy during the peak time).
We hope that our members can work together with us at the moment (logged out to let the other members to play when there are about 130 members online - you can get this in the marauders map).
Hope that by introducing the HEX supporter (in the next week or so), we're able to move this site to a better and faster server.
9:27 pm - Mad Eye
Everyone There is some good news! I have talked around befor ehti happened! Adn there are a few ideas!
firstly There is a Free Based Server owned by the Founder Of this site it is called Dyna-Host and it is free like vpod and has unlimited bandwith etc!
It is a great idea maybe john adn hoo shoul.d talk to matt! Because paying would probably make users lose intrest in hex since they would feel left out without "advanced Features etc" So no offesne Vpod but maybe we should help everybody and look into it! Just a thought but who am I????
9:14 pm - Alan Gray
pepsi! for those who think young!
8:19 pm - Hannah
First off you do not HAVE to pay for HEX. There are more options that you can get if you do, but nothing is going to be taken away if you do not pay. It will be EXACTLY the same as your account is right now. So let me reiterate, you do NOT HAVE TO PAY for hex.
7:01 pm - laszlo
Ok, this is only temporary, because I need to see the minister of magic, to see if he accepts. But ive now added a fan section of the ministry of magic.
You can locate it here
7:49 am - Hoojx
Our site is receiving a lot of traffic lately (using more than 6 Gigabytes of bandwidth per day with more than 5500 unique visitors per day and 250000+ hits per day) and it is not free to run such a huge website.
I've been in contact with our host that this site is consuming most of the resource on the server and making the other sites on the server to load slow especially during the peak hour (with more than 100 members online).
I've taken down the sign up page and limit only 100 members to online during the same time so that the server can run this site without being overloaded and affect the other sites on the same network.
We need to solve this problem as soon as possible so that we can keep on running this site. Please read this thread for more information. You can give us your suggestion there. Thanks for supporting us.
10:55 pm - John
Please stop owl posting us about clubs. You currently cannot make a club but will be able to soon. Thanks!
9:18 pm - John
The system has been updated. Stocks will start moving again. Thank You.
8:45 pm - John
All companies value have been set to: 66 Galleons. This has been done due to an error in the system and stocks going way too high. I assure you stock value will rise and slope down again! We just need to make a new system. Thank You!
5:10 am - Hoojx
Can all the staffs go to the staff room and give your opinions on the post 'point'. Thanks.
11:11 pm - John
The signature option has been updated. Now instead of the limit being 256 characters, it has now moved up to 800. Also if you were having a problem with your signature getting all pushed together, that wont happen anymore.
11:04 pm - John
As I look over the teaching applications, I have decided that I can't just do them all at once! Therefore, I will do the applications by rounds. We will probably have 3 rounds. Round 1 has been completed. Please look at the teaching status page if you applied.
10:49 pm - John
Rebkos Items Industries stock has been split. Congrats!
7:46 pm - John
To make your gringotts account more secure, you now have to enter a pin code to view/edit your gringotts account. If someone gets into your account, they wont be able to take your money because they wont know your pin! Please set a pin for your gringotts account ASAP! Thank You!

*ringing the stock bell* GO BUY! GO SELL! WOO!
1:01 am - John
The stock exchange is opened for another week.
12:50 am - John
For everyones information, the stock exchange is closed on weekends. Thats why the stock doesn't move and you can't buy/sell. This is to make the stock exchange more realistic and it makes it easier for admins because we might have to be away on the weekends and if something happens we might not be there. So thats why its closed on weekends. The stock exchange will open in 10 minutes. As it will be monday HEX time.
8:39 pm - laszlo
I agree with you Blondgrl1122 :)
7:57 pm - Mad Eye
Everyone i'm Sorry but if the immature person known as Gilderoy Lockhart Keeps Pouting Abotu me gettign the charms job before him I will be forced to leave HEx.
Me and laszlo have worked our butts off and have never done anything wrong! It is a bunch of bulloni that we be accused like this just cuz we got a job and they didn't! We can't Help it but if they keep arguing i will be foreced to leave hex and i think laszlo said he was too!
2:47 pm - Blondgrl1122
I really think that the stocks should be open on the weekends...so unfair! lol Anyone agree?
9:57 am - fred_weasley
Alright.I have a real problem now.3 people got eqaul votes for the board of directors for the hex pranksters.They are Ginny890 , Laszlo and Hoojx ( wonder how he does it without even posting once :D ).So what do i do ? after asking any people ( on msn and AIM ).I came up with a really simple solution.All the 3 would become a Director of the board.
Congratulations for all the 3 of you.Two more directors will be taken.I dont think an election has to be done for that too:D those 2 Directors are none other than John and Corey( Darkshady ) anyways they would win even if an Election was kept.
