Merry Christmas!

12:18 am - HPfanextrm

The Hogwarts Extreme Staff would like to wish you a Merry Christmas. Don't forget to check those stockings!

If you happen to come across a Glass Tree and some magical colored lights, I hear you may be able to combine them to form something magical in the Great Hall.

The Daily Prophet: December 2013

3:00 pm - Daily Prophet

* * * * * * * * * *

Seasons Greetings, HEXians young and old! It is time for another Daily Prophet, and there are some changes in store for you!

First, and foremost, we have a host of new writers on the Daily Prophet staff making their debuts. With this new staff, we have a new format of telling you the news. More to the point, we'll be telling you the news. Lately, the Daily Prophet has taken to story telling, and came dangerously close to making the Quibbler a bit less unique. We have too much respect for the Quibbler to take over their type of publication, so we've dialed it back just a touch, focusing a bit more on the goings-on around HEX.

Some of you may have noticed the ad spaces thread in Diagon Alley. You'll also notice that the ads won't be shown in this Daily Prophet. This is because the holiday season likely caused people to forget that they purchased an ad space, and never sent us their information! The full ads page should be up next month!

That's enough announcements, so please enjoy the new Daily Prophet!

* * * * * * * * * *

If you have any general concerns about the this month's issue of the DP, please contact the boss, Il Profeto at the Daily Prophet Manor, or check in with our ConsigliereNinja Kitten in Publication Management

Return of the Site Store

7:00 pm - John

After a long hiatus, the Site Store for HEX is officially open again! The store has been re-done from the ground up to make things easier and fresher than ever. There is a brand new t-shirt design, as well as all new sticker designs. Every house now has their own sticker, along with the official HEX "H". We are currently taking pre-orders to measure the amount of interest. Head on over to see all of the new merchandise!

With this, I'd like to introduce the brand new redeem section. The redeem section is where one can redeem their physical HEX cards received. Currently, everyone will receive HEX cards with all qualifying Site Store orders. You can redeem your card to receive special prizes like galleons and items. Current item offerings include ones like the invisibility cloak, firebolt, and color-changing ink. For more information on the Site Store specials relating to the redeem card, click here! The redeem section itself also has plenty of information on the new card. Other ways to receive a HEX Redeem Card will be made available in the near future.

Lastly, this could not have been possible without the help and guidance of Ted, Adam, and Alex, as well as feedback from Graphics Management as a whole. The collaboration of everyone is truly what allowed all of this to come together.

Wanted: WWN Director

11:17 am - themoon

About nine months ago, I founded the Wizarding Wireless Network (WWN,) an audio publication for HEX. We managed to release three or four broadcasts, but it's mainly been in a consistent state of growth. We added a bit more content for each show, and took away things that simply weren't working. Right now, however, WWN is in kind of a stale-mate, largely due to my own personal change of heart.

I've taken on several more responsibilities since the inception of WWN, and I feel that this will be the wisest thing for me to let go of. I am constantly pushing this wonderful show back on my list of things to do, and I feel it deserves a better fate. As a result of thorough reflection, I have decided it's time to pass on the torch, and appoint a new director for WWN. I will remain on board as a the coder and president, and will be available for questions. The person who takes over, however, will take on the bulk of the responsibilities from making sure people turn in their shows on time, to making sure we have enough content, to making sure we release on time. The new director will also be in charge of personnel, and will have the right to find new staff members, and get rid of old ones.

Please fill out the following form, and submit it to GSP827. I will be passing on the applications to members of the HEX staff, the new director will be the director of an official HEX Publication.

How Long You've Been a HEXian:
Time On HEX Per Week:
Leadership Roles (HEX):
Leadership Roles (Real Life):
In more than 300 words, please explain why you feel you'd be a good choice to take the helm:

Please turn in your application by January 5th at 11:59pm.

Digital Artists Applications

5:40 am - harry_fun

All around HEX there are original designs, in most cases image maps, which are entirely handrawn and are a result of a dedicated, hard work by the designers. These are made upon a request from the different areas of the site in need of an original artwork. This requires a lot of time, creativity and dedication so if you think you can offer that and would like to join the Digital Artists Team check out the applications for Digital Artists.

A Very Merry Hexmas!

12:22 am - Nefarious Black

It's that time again. The month you look forward to all year long. Christmas is nearly here.

To kick things off, the ever popular stocking stuffers, Christmas Lottery, HEXmas Gift Cards, gift wrapping, and Candy Cane Grams are all back in full-force.

Stocking Stuffers
The house elves of Hogwarts have returned with their stocking-stuffer gift-giving service in the Great Hall once again. Stop by and let them know who you would like to send a gift to this season, and they'll be happy to track down that individual and stuff that gift right into their house stocking. From December 25th through December 31st, everyone will be able to empty their stockings and open these magical gifts.

Christmas Lottery For the month of December, a special Christmas Lottery will replace the regular weekly Lottery. This lottery will require special Christmas Lottery tickets that can be obtained in a variety of ways. Everyone will receive their first ticket upon logging in (along with a house stocking). Additional tickets may be won from daily tasks posted in the Great Hall, the Donation Box in Diagon Alley, and even random events! For more information, have a look at the Christmas Lottery threads posted in the Great Hall.

HEXmas Gift Cards
Your best friend refuses to make a list, and your at a complete lost for what to buy them for Christmas. We've all been there, and that's why HEXmas Gift Cards have returned. Purchase and redeem them in Gringotts today. Everyone could always use more Galleons, right?

Gift Wrap
After many long months, Gift Wrap has finally returned thanks to Steven the Brave. It can be purchased within Fred's Holiday Store in Diagon Alley. Be sure to tell him thank you!

Candy Cane Grams
"Four for you Ron Weasley, you go Ron Weasley!" Send Candy Cane Grams to all of your friends throughout the castle and let them know just how much they mean to you. These can be purchase within Fred's Holiday Store in Diagon Alley and sent from your Inventory. Just remember "none for Hermione Granger!"

Watch this space. There's far more to come. We're just getting started!
