Year Move Up and O.W.L.s

1:04 pm - John

If you attained 100 points or more in the last term 07-08, you have been moved up a year. Congratulations to all.

Note that the year move ups are final, so if you were barely under 100, you still will not be moved up. Do not owl any of the staff asking if we would please move you up, because it will not happen.

You can view all of your homework scores and total points, here.

Also, for the first time ever, we have sixteen people that have graduated. More details on just what these people will be able to do will come soon. These people are:

DeAnna Weasley
Silver Moon

The top point earner for the 2007-2008 term is masterwizard. Congrats! He receives 5000 galleons! ;)

The next top five point earners are as follows and all will receive 1000 galleons each:

1) Krasotylla
2) Rose
3) Pokie1
4) Kara Potter
5) Stef

Top point earner masterwizard was a seventh year, and all other top point earners were third years this year, so to recognize each year individually for top point earners that did not make the first list: (all will receive 1000 galleons as well)

1st year - kalifarra
2nd year - PheonixFyre
4th year - Hermione_Rulz
5th year - Morgan_the_enchanted
6th year - Hydra

Congratulations to all!

For all that were fifth years last term, you have the opportunity to take your Ordinary Wizarding Level exams (O.W.L.s). You may take the exam if you were a fifth year last term, moved up or not.

O.W.L. Examination

Congratulations to everyone! More information about classes for the 2008-2009 term will be posted soon!

Daily Prophet - July 26, 2008

2:34 am - Xeneixian

It is time once again, my dearest friends, to warn you of the evils, the horrors, and the...half-breeds. It has indeed been an insufferably long interim between contacts, and we have only the muggles and wand-thieves (once known as "mudbloods") to blame. But do not worry your cute little heads over a single detail, for the Ministry watches over all...and so do we. And what we have seen will shock you.

You may click this simply adorable bow to read our next issue and discover the mutation which plagues Gryffindor house, the quick fall of HEX's youngest star, and get an exclusive peek inside the closet of one of our most notorious wizards.

Editor-in-Chief, Daily Prophet

Twilight Threads

11:13 pm - masterwizard

Due to the amount of complaints that we have had, ALL new Twilight threads that are created will be locked. There are plenty of Twilight threads already on Hex for you to use, and we really don't need more. If you post a Twilight thread, you will be warned and the thread will be locked. Subsequent postings will result in you being sent to Azkaban.

That said, we have no problems with people wanting to talk about Twilight. However, this is a Harry Potter site, not a Twilight site, which also had weight concerning this decision. If you really feel the need to post that many threads about Twilight, we suggest you find a Twilight site so you can talk there.

You'll need to frequent both common rooms to keep up-to-date on the contests and results being posted. :) So, without further ado, the first contest has been posted in the Hufflepuff CR for all of you to enjoy.

As requested, you now have the option in the notify section to not be notified of something you have selected if you are currently on HEX when it happens. Simply check the box to enable this option.

Also, you are now required to provide a reason when sharing a post with someone. This makes it less confusing for the receiving user if they get background from the sender first.

Also, there were many layout compatibility issues with people wanting to use banners with the longer height in forums. There is now a an option at the bottom of the forum editor you can check so there are no issues with it.

More to come.
