New Staff Member

8:19 pm - Theny

The staff is pleased to announce that Ted (Harry_Fun) is being promoted to the rank of Staff Member in recognition of his hard work and dedication to the site. In many ways he has already been doing the work of a staffer in Slytherin, as a GM admin and as editor of the Quibbler for quite some time now. Although he has been a gmod for a relatively short amount of time, it is this sort of going above and beyond what is expected of everyone that caused us to take notice and want to reward all the hard work.

Graphic Designer Applications

10:09 pm - Xeneixian

Graphic Designer applications are open again (finally)! If you enjoy making graphics and are interested in joining our team, be sure to check out the Application, or you can find it on the Job Applications page along with the other apps (which you should also check out, by the way).

Our team of graphic designers, collectively known as Graphics Management, creates all of the official graphics (other than hand-drawn works like some image maps and items) that you see on the site including layouts, thread headers, news post images, promotional avatars, and profiles. Designers fulfill requests submitted by the moderators and staff members of the various forums on the site, including our team of coders when they require graphics for new or updated projects and features.

You can ask any questions about the application/position in the Job Apps thread or owl one of the Graphics Management administrators: Xeneixian, littlemiss, Harry_Fun

Note: Like all other positions on HEX, this is a volunteer position. If you join our team, you will be compensated in the form of site currency and items.

Teaching Applications

2:06 pm - Tinuel

It's that time of year again! Summer is now upon us, and therefore the school is once again on the search for professors and substitutes.

Being a Hogwarts teacher can be a fun and rewarding job, but it also takes a great amount of time and dedication. We have high expectations you need to meet, there are specific schedules that must be kept to, policies that must be followed...all that not-so-fun stuff. So before applying for the job, please make sure that you have the time to commit to this position.

Applications are only open until 11:59pm on June 30th, 2014. If you're interested in learning more on how to become a professor on Hex, please go here for more information.

New User Area

5:53 am - John

A full-on new user experience is now here for the site. This section, called the New User Area, is now available to all users, new and old. People that join the site will now have New User Status activated and see all of it by default. We recognize though, that many of you have always wanted to learn more about HEX and what you can do. Through the New User Area, this is finally possible.

Should you choose to Activate New User Status, the following will happen:
- You will get an additional menu category
- You will get full access to the New User Area
- Your tasks that await you will be counted under the date and time at the top of the page.

Everyone that chooses to activate the New User Area will begin with tasks. You simply read what you are given for each task, and then you take a short quiz over the material. If you complete all of the tasks, you are given 10,000 galleons. Once all tasks are completed, Endeavors will be unlocked. Endeavors truly immerse you in the site, as you will be given specific Endeavors that will have you all over the place. If you complete an Endeavor Category, you are paid the galleons listed on the category, while also unlocking the next category.

For those that activate the New User Area and decide it's not for them, all of it can be easily disabled on the "Options" page towards the top of the area. Everything will be instantly reverted back to the way it was before.

I want to say a big thanks to Nikki, Em, and Sara for helping make this section the best that it can be. It could not have all come together without their help.

So, if you want to activate the New User Area, head on over here!

Summer is just around the corner and the Arts & Graphics Forum has begun the preparations. Head on over to the forum to check out what we have in store for you for the sunny month of June!

This month we are all about Sunshine and Summer. What's not to like about that? Both of this month's challenges are based on the famous lullaby "You Are My Sunshine".

Over in the Writing Challenge your task is to give this well known song your own spin by rewriting it. Don't forget to also check the Artwork of the Month. Enjoy!

For your effort, we of course offer three prizes in each of the challenges:
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

I, personally, advise that you read our lovely issue so you can read the whole truth about social media and how it's impacting the Wizarding World! Go read! Go!

Greetings, everyone! We are happy to announce that the Daily Prophet is back after a two month absence. We have been doing a bit of restructuring and are happy to be back on the scene with a whole new (and more exciting!) look thanks to our co-editor Kay85. Enjoy!

We are also looking for some more writers for the Daily Prophet, as well as a Graphics Designer. If you are interested in either position, please send an owl to either Samantha Bradley, or Kay85 or better yet, send an owl to both of us. If you've got what we're looking for, we could really use you! Just write an article which you feel would be suitable for the Daily Prophet, or submit a small sample of your work if you are applying for the GD. Good luck!
