Inviting All Hufflepuffs & Ravenclaws

HEX Toolbar


4:31 pm - John


There is no official HEX toolbar at this time. If you are installing a so-called HEX toolbar, you are putting your computer at risk, as spyware can easily be added to these sort of applications.

Again, there is no released toolbar. Anyone posting a link to one or encouraging people to download one will be sent to Azkaban for at least 48 hours.

Also, installing the toolbar will not "magically" fix a broken script on HEX.

Thanks

HEX Not Functioning for Some People


2:36 pm - John


Some users' internet will take a longer time to recognize HEX's new server. Nothing can be done about this, except to simply wait.

So if you're getting cPanel pages at times, or your friends are strictly getting that page and not HEX, please know that it is simply taking a little longer for your internet connection to recognize the switch.

Thanks!

Server Change Successful


6:40 pm - John


We have successfully changed to a new server. The reason for the switch was to get on a new server with faster speeds, space, and memory to accommodate HEX.

Having to move gigs and gigs of data and getting it all configured took a long time, so I apologize for the downtime.

Thanks

Ordinary Wizarding Levels


4:47 pm - Salazar


For those of you who were 5th years during the last term, you have the opportunity to take your Ordinary Wizarding Level exams (O.W.L.s). There are questions for each class that will need to be completed. It is a multiple-choice exam where you will need to find the correct answer. The test can be found here:

O.W.L. Examination

You have until September 28 to complete the exam.

P.S - You can take the exam if you were a 5th year last term, whether or not you moved up.

Important Site Information - UPDATE (pet info)


10:46 pm - John


Hey Everyone,

We will be upgrading to a faster server late Friday night / early Saturday morning.

What this means is some of you will not be able to access HEX for up to twenty four hours while HEX is being switched over to the new server.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but it is inevitable in the server changing process.

I also wanted to thank all of the people that donate. Your donations have made it possible to get a much needed, faster server. Your continuing donations will also help maintain the new server.

Also, classes will begin October 1st.

Update: Your pets will not need to be fed during the server change process. They will also not run away.

Thanks!

Forum Reports and Locking Threads


6:41 pm - Aurora Dior


In April, masterwizard made an announcement about reporting threads that are not breaking rules. I would like to now take the time to remind users of the points he made.

You are not to report threads unless they break a rule. People who use the report feature to report threads that do not break any rules will be punished. Reporting a thread because you don’t like someone, their opinions, or even because you want a thread to be locked is not acceptable.

To get a thread locked, a broken thread fixed, quote tags revised, etc. - you owl a mod. You do NOT report the thread. As such, threads will not be locked unless there is a valid reason for doing so.

Thank you.

Site Status


10:08 am - Salazar


All item related features of Hex will be down for a while due to some technicalities. We will try our best to bring them back as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you won't need to worry about your hunger or your pets during this downtime.

There is no need to owl moderators and administrators about the issue, or creating threads about it. Thank you for your cooperation.

Avatars with spoilers


3:33 pm - Salazar


In the past a few days, we have removed some avatars due to the fact that they contained spoilers about the Deathly Hallows.

You still can not post spoilers without tags in general forums, so naturally, you can not have a spoiler on your every post, where people can see it all the time either.

Please be considerate of the people who have yet to read the book.
