For the first time since the site's inception, User Infos have received a much-needed redesign. You'll now find that they include much more information unique to each user. The points below depict the most important additions.
- House points, current forum locations, and Pottermore usernames are now visible to all of your Hogfriends. Users wearing an Invisibility Cloak will still find their location hidden, and Pottermore usernames may be set from the Account Settings page linked within myHEX.
- Equipment, Broomsticks, Pets, Wishlists, and Hogfriends have all been given dedicated sections. Brooms and Quidditch positions may be set from your Inventory, assuming you have the necessary supplies. An option for reordering Wishlists to change your top 5 items is coming soon.
To visit your User Info and check out all of these changes first-hand, just click your username in the top left corner of every page.

Today, Chris (motherof3) has been promoted to Administrator. As most of you know, Chris is very dedicated and committed to making HEX the best that it can be. This is well-deserved and I am very excited to see what's to come. Congratulations, Chris!

As of now, Hogwarts is full of "witches" and "wizards." If, however, you do not feel that you identify with one of those gender designations, we're introducing a new option. Though everyone is still required to choose witch or wizard (so as not to fully dispose of fun things like dorms, bathrooms, and certain random events) at the moment of enrollment, you may opt to "hide" your chosen gender in favor of becoming a "student." This way, whether you're a witch, wizard, both, neither, or sometimes a witch and other times a wizard, you may comfortably define your gender status on Hogwarts Extreme.
Note, anyone seeking to change their gender marker on HEX (between witch and wizard) due to a transition in gender identity is still free to contact a HEX Staff Member at any time. Please know that we, the Staff, trust you all to be mature in your decision-making and not to abuse this feature. We created it in an attempt to be inclusive of gender-variant folk. In order to utilize it, please visit your Account Settings.
