New Features


3:21 pm - John


Many of you have noticed the change in daily money the past few days. The change is permanent. Every hour daily money will automatically be updated to a completely random number of galleons. The number could be small or large, but it is completely random and the hour of the day has nothing to do with it.

Also, another new feature is random bursts. Random bursts is text that appears under your info in forum posts. You can update your random burst anytime with basically anything that is on your mind, how you are feeling, something you want, or anything else that randomly comes to your mind, hence the "random" part. As a side note, random bursts must follow Hex rules and all of them are permanently logged, so if a user has an inappropriate random burst but quickly changes it, the staff will still be able to see it. Random bursts can be updated on the My Hex page.

Thanks!

Dearest HEX users,

After a long time of being a staff member on this site, I have decided to move on and explore other adventures. :) This is my decision alone and while I will miss many of you - please know this has not been an easy decision.

For my gratitude for all of the great users on this site, I will and have been putting up my items in donations to show my appreciation.

Please be good to one another. I wish you all the best in life and online. ;)

*hugs* Care

Trophy Cases


12:54 am - John


There is now a new feature on Hex, trophy cases. Trophy cases allow you to display up to 50 items to users through your user info page. If a trophy case is on display, the first five items will be listed in user info. The rest of the case can be viewed by simply clicking the "View All" link.

Trophy cases can be bought in Borgin and Burke's in Knockturn Alley. Some may think the price is a little steep, but the item itself provides a huge feature for you to show selected items. A trophy case will not be visible to users until you choose to put it on display in the item actions. Edit the items that you want in the case through the item actions as well. You can also add captions to the items in your case that all users can view.

Important: You must have the case in your inventory at ALL times in order to keep your case in general. If you remove the case from your inventory, all items will be returned to your inventory and you will lose all captions. Owning more than one case does not make a difference at all.

As promised, people that have donated last month have a reminder on the My Hex page to donate that can be cleared. Also, the same people are now properly credited on the user info page, which will last until the end of this month. This form of crediting will exist every month now.

Thanks!

Site Donations


12:46 pm - John


After talking with many of you and seeing a bunch of your suggestions, the donation program has now been modified. Many of you wanted a way for the item to have a higher rarity number, and with the new program it will be.

Here is how the new program will work:

- There will now be two items given out for each month.
- If you donate $10, you will randomly be given one of the two items. The random part of it will basically be distributing the item fairly so that rarity of it remains high.
- If you donate $20, you will automatically receive both items.
- If you hold a subscription for six months, you will receive a new six months rare item at the end of every six months. (End of June, end of December) The items will be different/separate from the regularly given out donation items. Note that you may donate manually every month for six months without a subscription, but getting a subscription is preferred to guarantee that you get the item at the end of a six month period.
- Because donations have just been modified, if you get a subscription during this month, (April) it will count towards this June's rare. (even though by this June you will only have had the subscription for about two and half months.)
- If you donate for a certain month, when you are credited the next month, you will have text on your user info page displaying that you donated. (the text will last for a month)
- Lastly, people that donate will have the option of being notified on My Hex with a reminder to donate. Many of you said it is hard to remember at times, and this will be a way to help that.

All of this takes affect this month, meaning the item given out this month for March will still be the same, but the item given out for April (in May) will follow these rules.

Thanks again to all of the donators that help to keep Hex going, and if anyone has any questions, feel free to owl me.

Also be sure to check out the Gossip Girl event post below this!

April Fools!


5:36 pm - John


We hope everyone enjoyed the interesting occurrences of Twilight that happened yesterday and today. As an extension of the original April Fools joke, we thought it would be fun to leave the layout and everything up until now, past the day of April 1 to make it seem even more permanent.

Thanks for all of your cooperation during it. As a thank you, anyone that filled out the "new" sorting applications has been given an Imprint Potion as well as 100 galleons.

Also, please click here and fan us on Facebook.

More to come, and thanks to those that put up with the day, and we're glad for those that enjoyed it as much as we did. (and sorry to the ones who didn't, as I glance at my owlpost haha)

Twilight Extreme


12:20 am - John


After much discussion amongst the staff, we feel that the best direction for Hex is to switch it from being about Harry Potter to being about the Twilight series. We understand that Twilight is extremely popular, which helped us come to our decision. So, after almost eight years of being solely a Harry Potter site, Hex has now become Tex. All necessary changes are in the process of being made and will continue to be carried out. We know that this is the best direction for the site's future.

Thank you.



On The Outside Looking In


12:17 am - motherof3


We see throughout the HP books how Petunia Dursley absolutely hates magic. Yet we also know that a much younger and less proud Petunia Evans once wanted to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry so badly that she wrote to Albus Dumbledore himself to ask that he allow her to attend. What was in this letter, we may never know…unless you head on over to the Contest Forum to help us recreate the letter that could have changed her life for ever.
