Trophy Case update

7:31 am - caleneledh

An update has been made to the way you edit your trophy case.

When you click on your Trophy Case item in your inventory there is a new option that will take you to a page where you can re-order your trophy case. But wait! Things are a little different now. You can now re-organize your case by simply dragging and dropping your shinies around to change their order. You can also return an item to your inventory by dropping it on the bar at the bottom of the page.

There is a link back to the original page, where you can add items and comments.

At the moment the drag and drop function does NOT work on touch-screen devices. Hopefully this can be added at a future date. If you are using a cell phone or tablet the page will automatically redirect you to the original trophy case edit page.

If you have any issues or problems, please let me know. Have fun!

Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

4:36 am - iPod

"Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us somehting please,
Whether we be old and bald,
Or young with scabby knees,
Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff,
For now they're bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we've forgot,
Just do your best, we'll do the rest,
And learn untill our brains all rot."

New Shopping Areas

6:09 pm - John

Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and Knockturn Alley have all been given a refresh. Each area has all new images for shopping. All of the new images were made by the incredibly talented Lydia. In addition to this, each area has a new design in general. It may seem strange not to have the left menu at first, but steps have been taken so that navigating flows just as well. As always, you have the top bar to see all of your information.

Important Note: If you wish to not use the new view/look of the shopping areas without the left navigation, you can easily disable it and revert back to the old view. Simply go to MyHEX > Preferences > No Navigation Forums and select disabled.

Have fun exploring the new areas!

Forum Group Events - Hogsmeade & Knockturn Alley

12:11 am - Nefarious Black


Darkness lurks in every corner -- things seem to be getting more corrupt. You hear a lot of whispers and catch glimpses of things that leave you wondering. Hogsmeade and Knockturn Alley are in a state of unease.

Come join us as we take you on a quest to locate two escaped animagi.

The dementors have been sent in to these areas to look for the fugitives and there are reports that they have been attacking innocents as well. Beware, their kiss is in the air....that means it's an RE too, folks :P

Wizarding Wireless Network - "June" 2013

12:18 am - Xeneixian

So there we were, all prepared to release the June broadcast, when the darn thing disapparated. Someone must have set a portkey on it or something. At any rate, it has been found, and is ready for your listening pleasure!

This month, you can hear music, news, and an interview with the founder of our Club Hopping "Club of the Month." Songs were performed by Kay85, RainbowPhoenix, _sky_, and SofiaR. Questions and concerns can be sent to Jason, WWN, or our publications managers via Angela.

Daily Money Tweaks

4:52 am - John

The way Daily Money works has now changed. The following changes are some of the biggest ever to this feature. They are as follows:

- Everyone now has the opportunity to collect Daily Money twice in one day. If the system deems that an individual user has been particularly active on the site for a given day, it will offer the option of collecting an additional time. You do not need to have collected the first time to receive this offer. The offer can potentially happen at anytime of the day.

- Every single day there will be one bonus multiplier hour. The hour can occur at any time of the day. During this hour, everyone that still has the option to collect will have their money potentially multiplied by a certain amount. There are four different treasure chests to choose from in this hour only. One of the chests is completely empty though, and will actually result in one receiving no money for their daily collection. After the multiplier hour of the day occurs, it will be noted in big letters on the Daily Money page.

The changes bring about a general change in strategy. Should one wait until the potential bonus hour or not? Will one potentially be offered a second collection that could be used in the bonus hour or a later hour of day? Will one potentially get no money by risking it during the bonus hour? The possibilities are endless! A big thank you to Neffa for creating the amazing treasure chests!

WWN Applications

3:23 pm - sofiar

The Wizarding Wireless Network, WWN for short, is looking for a some new voices!
WWN is a publication that is purely audio based and encompasses everything from a little acting, to music, to straight-up news about the site. It is now something you may find on the left hand menu of the site beneath subsidiaries. On the page, you will be able to listen to the current broadcast as well as each broadcast from here on out.

That said, we are in need of a minimum of 4 anchors, and 3 hosts.
-At least one per each of the four houses
-At least one for each of the two new shows (A cooking show, and an advice show.)

Each applicant should think about the following before applying:
-Each anchor should be available and able to record and submit work for each episode (every two months.)
-Each anchor should speak clearly and loud enough to be heard.
-Each anchor should be able to record with a very good quality. This quality should be free of crackling, fuzziness, buzzing, or anything else that could distract from your voice. It may be as simple as finding the best room to record in, or it may mean you should invest in a higher quality microphone.
-Please no background noise. Your cat is adorable, but we don't need to hear it.

To Apply: Please fill out the form below and owl it to WWN or MissHavokk by July 27th at 11:59pm HEX Time.

Time Online per day/week:
Site or Real Life Obligations:

**With your application, please include a recorded short snippet (over 1 minute and less than 3 minutes) of a news-worthy event around the HEX website or in the Wizarding World, a recipe and cooking instructions, or a sample advice bit (problem and advice.)

Top Student Prizes

1:55 pm - Xeneixian

As a pat on the back from the site staff, each year the Top Students are awarded some pretty spiffy prizes. This year is no different. To see whats up for grabs - and to find out if you qualify - head to this thread in the Entrance Hall. If you have any questions, feel free to owl me.

Congratulations to all of our Top Students: it's quite a feat to stay so committed throughout the entire term. Your hard work and determination have helped your house, so it's only right that it also helps your inventory.

The Quibbler - July 2013

12:10 am - Reneespeaks

We're fashionably late this month, but whatever. Being on time is so mainstream, you know? Anyways,click here to read what's happening this month in the wizarding world, since all those other publications are soooo overrated. Questions? Concerns? Owl Reneespeaks or Kitten050606, though conventional means of communication are too overused, IMHO *scarf flip.*
