Just to let everyone know, all posts complaining saying the admins suck will be deleted. These kind of posts will not accomplish anything, and will not be tolerated. We rested money because it was best and if you can't handle it, leave. The money is not real! It's just fake play around money. You can't buy anything in real life, you can only buy stuff on a game, HEX! It's just plain stupid if you are complaining you lost all of your money, because it's not real! I have announced it is not aloud now, and if you disobey, you will be punished!

Also, contests have been added back, enter them now! Only 1 submission per contest, otherwise your entry will be ignored. Contests are Here.


Hex has returned

5:16 pm - darkshady

After exhausting all other alternatives and long contemplation, the staff of Hogwarts Extreme has decided to reset the money. I realize that this decision is going to make some of you fairly mad but allow me to explain how we reached this decision. On HEX there is a wide gap between the ?wealthy? and the ?poor?. This started to happen because of the stock market. All you that were here when the stock market was up probably remember how crazy the prices of things got. Items were either way too expensive for some or ridiculously cheap for everyone. Some of us thought that over time the problem would sort itself out, but that hasn?t happened and in some ways it has gotten worse. The newer members haven?t had the chance to make a lot of money let alone catch up to others because they weren?t here for the market. If unaided, these people can hardly get what they need, let alone what they want. Surely all of you will realize that it is not fair to newer users and it is almost a penalty for not joining earlier. In the mean time, the prices for things keep going up because if we don?t raise the price there is too much money etc. The galleon is in essence becoming the lire for some and the dollar for others. The staff of Hogwarts Extreme likes to try and find ways to make HEX as real as possible. Not only do we all feel that it makes HEX more fun and original but we also find it more challenging. In the real world, this country would have crashed and burned months ago.

After World War I, Germany faced problems somewhat like this. People would have to pay a pile of money to get a simple item. They finally decide to do something that benefited them all-they burnt most of the money. This is what we are going to do. We are going to ?burn? almost all of the money and reset the prices of items. This way the galleon will be the same for everyone and it will stabilize the HEX economy not hurt it. In the long run, we are confident it will help all.

For those who possess lots of money, remember that you aren?t loosing real money and it?s not like you are not going to be able to pay for things. Your inventory will remain intact and so you do have collateral in addition to the money everyone is going to start out with. Also bear in mind that we have been considering resetting the money for months and our minds are made up. Please refrain from writing us about it.

Thank you for your time and support,

-The Staff

Everyone's money has been reset to 50 galleons, and 5 in gringotts. You can also collect your interest in gringotts.

I myself have been receiving many owls complaining how the user has given it to another person and then their items and money were gone. More so than that reason, users have complained of hacking.

As I am sure you know, you are not to give out passwords no matter what. Once you do this, you run the risk of something similar happening. If it does, there is no way to get it back, and it is your loss.

Here is a few hints. Don't give your password to anyone. Also, do not write your password on a piece of paper and lay it beside the computer or somewhere someone could easily find it. It is a good habit to change your password every once and a while. The best passwords are random numbers and letters and not common word or words found in a dictionary.

Thank you!

A lot of you are complaining about the ton of pop up ads on HEX. There should not be that many, and I think I know the problem. It is most likely that you have installed something on your computer that pops ads occasinally, and you happen to be on HEX. One of the leading programs that takes advantage of you is KaZaA.

1. There is a can't find page error - The site wil be back up in a few minutes.
2. IF there is a Default Pleske Page, it may take a little longer.

Also, if HEX is ever down, fell free to take a stop by our forum for updates on what is going on. There are usually people on the forum :-D.

Okay, people, take a hint!!

2:11 am - rebkos

If you owl one of the Admins and we don't reply, guess what? We are not going to answer your silly owls that say things like:

"Hi, Hi Hi Hi HI???"
"Are you there? Are you there? Can I talk to you?"
"I have a big important question!"
"I really have to ask you, it is so important I ask you right now!!!"
"hi hihihihihihihihihihihihi!!"
"I'm not gonna say what my question is but its imporant!"

That is not going to get you anywhere. We WILL ignore you. There is no reason for us to answer your silly questions, we will block you from owling us about that "very important question" which 99% of the time is "Can I have some money?" Guess what guys, your not getting money from us no matter how much you beg, so don't even bother asking. Unless what you have to say is EXTEMELY IMPORTANT, Don't but us with sill owls!

So please people, take a hint, and DON'T owl the admins about silly pointless things!

Well, it seem Warner Bros. has proved yet again that they didn't even bother reading the Harry Potter books before turning them into movies.

Anyone who as actualy BOTHERED to read read the series realizes that the Quidditch is an important part of PoA. So of course anyone that has read PoA would realizing CUTTING OLIVER WOOD FROM PoA IS A STUPID IDEA! But WB has proved that they are up to the challenge of making a movie without reading the book, because they did cut Oliver Wood. Which means they cut most of the Quidditch sequences, which means Harry loosing the Nimbus will have to be changed, which means Harry and Ron won't be mad at Hermione for ratting out the Firebolt, which means the partronus won't mean as much.

Now is your chance to show WB that they can't continue destroying the work fans love. SIGN THIS PETITION FOR OLIVER WOOD TO BE PUT BACK INTO PoA!!

To creat a dorm:

Fill out the form and you must include at least 1 person as a room mate. They must be in the same house, their gender does not matter. They will then get an event and they can chose to accept or decline the invitiation. Once at least one person accepts, you can create the dorm.

Inviting users to the dorm:

Once you have created a dorm anyone in the dorm can invite others to join. They can only be in your house.


You can add items to your trunk in your inventory, people in your dorm will be able to see those items but cannot do anything with them

Each user can only be in 1 dorm! Be careful when picking room mates, as of right now you cannot leave a dorm once your in it.

More features coming soon!

When you fill out the form to create the dorm, you must have at least 1 person accept before you can fully create the dorm (it has a button to click on) and then you will be able to view the dorm and put items in your trunk
