The Quibbler: October 2012


3:58 am - Marluxia




Hey you! Put down that candy just for a second and read the new Quibbler issue! We here at the Quibbler offices would like to wish you a happy Halloween with this month's issue...or do we? In fact, you may be surprised at what you'll read this month, as we expand on the idea that maybe...Halloween isn't as great as it used to be. I mean, besides the free candy, of course. Nothing could ever be bad about that!

If you have any questions or concerns about the Quibbler or its content, please owl the editor, Marluxia, or one of the publications staff members, Tori Tendleswift, icemousey, or Samantha Bradley. Thanks!

Lockhart's back


12:57 am - yuki_chan




After dropping by Santa to add Snape into the Nice List, Lockhart is back from his quest to procure more Yeti hair. The last set of dueling matches has resulted to Gryffindor receiving a total 21,500 House Points for 4 individual wins and a team victory, while Ravenclaw has earned 8,500 House Points for an individual win and a team loss.


Of course, Gilderoy wouldn't want to miss learning new moves--errr... judging duels for the impending clash between Slytherin and Hufflepuff. Head to the Great Hall and see for yourself.

Voldemort Reborn!


1:04 am - Reneespeaks



With Halloween rapidly approaching, the dark is rising - the Dark Lord, to be precise. What really happened in the graveyard that night? Test your knowledge and skills of the event by joining the Slytherin Staff to relive the horrifying story of Voldemort Reborn. After all, what's Halloween without a little terror?

Missing Lockhart


6:22 pm - yuki_chan



Dearest Severus,

One ingredient for my extra special hair potion is running low, so Iím off to the North Pole to procure a jar of Yeti hair. As much as I want to be there to make sure that all the duels are judged perfectly, Iíll settle to leave it in your less capable hands. Iíll drop by Santa and convince him to add you to his Nice List.

Gilderoy



You read it right! Professor Snape needs a few people to fill Lockhartís shoes and judge some of the Term Duels. Do you think you have the skills to become the new Dueling Master? Head to the Great Hall and apply here.

Ghostly Greetings


8:28 pm - HPfanextrm



Halloween is fast-approaching, which means a change of decoration to a much more festive layout, courtsey of Alex.

Gambol and Japes has received a frightfully familiar shipment of Limited Edition Unopened Chocolate Frogs. Rumour has it that these very special treats contain a few seasonal wizard cards. Rumours are rumours, of course! We've not actually taken the time to investigate; we figured we should leave that up to you! During delivery, though, we were informed that these magical frogs will transform back into regular Unopened Chocolate Frogs at the end of the month. Best open them while you still can!

Happy Haunting!

We have started to buy back items and will buy until October 21 11:59 pm.

Put all items to be deleted in your store with our posted prices. You do not need to post your store links. We are going around and buying out stores via OS.

Please do not put your items to be bought back in trade links. All buying back will be done through your own store and we will automatically go to your store without you having to post a link. In the case of excessive numbers of the same item we will make other arrangements, but still the items will not need to be loaded into trades.

Find more information HERE.
Thanks!

Inter-House Debates

The first debate of the new term, pitting Hufflepuff against Slytherin, has ended.

While Hufflepuff won the debate with points (25.8 to 16.4), Slytherin had the most convincing argument. Therefore, Slytherin has won the first debate.

Keep your eyes open for our next debate, where Gryffindor and Ravenclaw will face off against each other.

2012 Impending Item Removal - Heads Up


8:53 am - Nefarious Black




As the thread title suggests, Item Management has decided that it's time to delete some more of our items to make way for bigger and better things. The reasons for deletion vary, from simply being uncanon, to being unattractive item images, or even being unpopular. Other items are being deleted so that they can be re-released with shiny new images, a different rarity, an item action, or a combination of the three.


Item Deletion is something that we take very seriously on HEX.

Each item selected for deletion has undergone a process of elimination where the members of Item Management (along with some Staff Members) weigh the individual pros and cons of the item before deciding whether to delete it. It's our mission to make the economy better with every action we take, whether by releasing items or removing them.


Please understand.

We take your feelings and personal attachments to various items very seriously, as we are extremely attached to items as well. None of the items on the list are there to hurt feelings or discourage you from participating in the economy. We simply feel that, at this point in time, it is in the best interest of the site to remove those items from circulation.

Understand that the decision to remove these items is final and we will not be swayed by arguments. You can vent your frustrations and voice your concerns, but anything that could be construed as arguing with the staff will not be tolerated. We hope you will take this as a positive and not a negative.


Everyone will have the opportunity to sell back their items.

They will be priced at a fair market value; no higher, no lower. We will ensure that you are compensated fairly for every item you turn in. When the buy-back begins, you will be notified on the homepage.
