HP and the CoS Contest


11:47 pm - masterwizard


It seems as if Voldemort is trying to take the Chamber of Secrets from Dumbledore. With all of the people in the world looking out for him and his followers, it's been hard finding a decent lair for him and his Death Eaters. Then it occurs to him. What place could be better as a lair than the Chamber of Secrets? It would give him plenty of access to the Hogwarts students and their professors. So he took the idea into consideration, and came up with a plan. He was, in fact, going to try to reclaim the Chamber of Secrets. But how? He'd need help. But then an idea hits him. Maybe he doesn't have to physically enter the chamber? What if his former self did it for him? That's it. Get Lucius to take his old diary to Hogwarts, so that Tom Riddle can be released. But how would it get there. That solution presented itself right before the start of term at Hogwarts. All Lucius had to do was to walk into Flourish and Blotts....

Now Voldemort knows that Dumbledore himself will be patrolling the school passageways, and that there will be obstacles that will need to be overcome if he is to succeed. Will you help Professor Dumbledore stop Tom Riddle or will you allow Hogwarts to become corrupted by evil? It's completely your choice. However, if you choose to help, it will be up to you to find out what Voldemort is planning and to stop Tom Riddle, once and for all. Please hurry, though, as the start of term is in a few days, and you're going to have a lot to overcome! Good luck!


Rules for the CoS contest

1. You must work out all clues on your own, with no help from anyone. Any threads composed asking for help will result in the thread author's automatic disqualification. If you have questions about the contest, please post them in this thread, or owl them to Masterwizard.

2. The Admins and Global Moderators have NOT been informed about the contest, so they ARE eligible to win. You may not ask them for any help regarding the contest. Anyone caught asking someone from either group for help, will be automatically disqualified.

3. All obstacles, riddles, trivia questions, etc. will pertain to the books, and not Hex. In the event that something does pertain to Hex, it will be noted as such in that particular thread. (Note: The riddles to find out where the next section of the contest is, will be based on Hex)

4. This contest is time-based, however, that does not mean that because you've submitted your answer sheet first, that you automatically win. The first person to have a complete, correct, answer sheet will win Moste Potente Potions and your House Sword.

5. The first place winner will receive Moste Potente Potions and your House Sword. The 2nd place winner shall receive your House Sword and 25,000 galleons. The 3rd place winner shall receive a Cage of Pixies and 20,000 galleons.

6. You may only send in one answer sheet, no exceptions. So make sure that you are confident with your answer sheet before sending it in.

7. The clues may be anywhere on Hex, including the hidden forums. They will not, however, be placed in any forums restricted to one or more groups (common rooms, bathrooms, etc.)

8. Answer sheets must include the following: (1) The answers to the riddles, questions, etc. (2) The places where you found the corresponding riddles, questions, etc. (Instead of just posting them all together, use this format: "The name of the section - The place where it was found; the answer(s) to the question(s).

9. All obstacles that will need to be answered will be in italics. If a riddle, question, or other obstacle is NOT in italics, then you do not need to answer them.

10. ALL location riddles or location obstacles need to be answered, whether in italics or not.

Head over to the contest forum to begin the contest! :)

Hex Trivia Contest; Round Two


1:30 am - Flashy Comet


You took the challenge and handed in the round one of those tedious questions. You know those questions were hard. But you gave it your best, knowing that you have a chance of winning. You didn't think any of the other students were as confident as you. You showed your beaming smile as you walked back into the line inwhich you first stood waiting to enter the contest. Here you're standing, waiting and waiting for you Round Number Two question sheet. You glance nervously behind you, to see students come piling in. They must've entered round one too. Only people who went into round one, could go into round two. How silly if they thought they could sneak in. Finally you get to the beginning of the line. You notice a staff member by the name of Nikki Comet. She's running the contest. She greets you with a smile and looks down at a list, 'What's your name?' she asks you. You recite your name to her and she glances at her list once more. 'Ahh yes, you're on the list.' She reaches down and grabs a piece of parchment for you. It reads, 'Round Two Questions' and the questions below it. Inside your grinning and jumping for joy, but you hold it in so no one else sees. You walk down the hall and began to jog lightly all the way back to your common room.

People who can participate in round two:

Please check thread in Entrance Hall.

The prizes for this contest will be;
1st - 20,000 galleons and a special surprise.
2nd - 10,000 Galleons and a special surprise.
3rd - 5,000 galleons and a special surprise.
Everyone who participates will receive prizes as well, those are to be determined.

Only true attempts given and turned in by owl will receive prizes.

1. Give all the positions that Professor McGonagall has.

2. Cho Chang is of what descent?

3. How many sisters does Narcissa Black Malfoy have?

4. What happened to Nevilles parents?

5. What animal pulled the Beauxbaton's carriage into Hogwarts for the Triwizard tournament?

6. In order for House Elves to be free, they have to be given an article of clothing to be let go. What article of clothing did Harry give Dobby so that he could be free?

7. How old is Nymphadora Tonks?

Hex Gazette


12:08 pm - Bosnimf


I have chosen someone to assist me with the layout. I know i would say 2 people, but the low amount of applications (and quality of those) forced me to chose one person instead. Those who entered have been owled about it :)

If you haven't seen the previous news about this, I am still looking for a second person to assist me in doing the layout of the gazette. Applications for the layout stay open indefinitly (or untill further notice).

Warning to all users


8:48 pm - Birgitte


Because of last nights incidents we have expelled 10 accounts today all having relations to the same people.

Let this be a warning. No matter what you do - it can be undone with a few clicks of a mouse. We're not going anywhere. This is a PG rated site and to be honest - to keep coming back even after almost a year to cause problems is rather pathetic.

Let this also be a warning to NEW users - and old. I can see that some of the accounts that were expelled are fairly new accounts. NEVER ever give out your password to someone you dont know. And not to your friends either. Obviously no one can be trusted. Do NOT give out your password. Chances are that who ever you give it to and for what ever good reason you have - they will be up to something simply because they dont have anything else to do.

Anyone found with one of the expelled members ip's on their account will be expelled too - no questions asked.

And our owlboxes are always open if you hear something or know of an expelled member being on an account here on HEX.



Just a Friendly New Reminder.


4:06 am - Flashy Comet


Please do not accept avatars from strangers you don't know. Bad things could be lurking around the corner. -Nikki, Global Moderator-
