New Forum Links

7:53 am - Chris_Phoenix

While Filch was cleaning up the recent cake debris, the Headmaster was inspired to add some entrances to new forums:

The Music Room -- Stained glass window above the main door The Kitchens of Hogwarts -- Portrait to the left of the Great Hall door Games Forum -- Games link on left menu. Games page accessible through link at top of forum

Yes....one room entrance really is twelve feet in the air, and another is the portrait. While Mr. Filch wanted to charge admission into the games room, since it's one more room for him to clean, but I was able to convince him otherwise. Lastly, Mr. Filch wanted me to remind everyone to avoid carrying mud into the hallways.

Top Student Prizes

5:33 pm - Nelly

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.

Re-Discover the Magic, HEX-style

2:19 pm - Ninja Kitten

Admit it. You've read and re-read the books hundreds of times over the years. No shame in that. We are all united on this site through our love of JK Rowling's fantastic literary works. It is our hope that we help you all keep the love for Harry Potter and all of his friends and foes for decades to come.

To continue along this theme we are now pleased to announce the opening of a forum dedicated to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Click the picture above, and join the Magical Archivists in sharing your favorite parts, memories, and things you'd rather forget happened.

So let's see if we can survive the darkness that has overcome the Wizarding world and join our favorite people in the hunt to destroy Voldemort, but also fit in a bit of romance too.

O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s

12:56 pm - HEX Staff

After the incident a few years ago concerning an errant order of the Sizable Abraxan Trials and Applicable Cockatrice Tests, it was decided that a new purveyor of magical books was required. It quickly became apparent, however, that this was a grave mistake.
The supplier in question, Calnodunit's Emporium of Magical School Supplies (company name obfuscated for privacy reasons), started well. The exams were drawn up, checked, and ready to deliver in short time. The morning the delivery was due to ship was when the problems began. Initially the swirling vortex was confined to the printing room only, and a representative of the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes said that everything was completely under control.
Just recently the supplier and his accompanying buildings finally turned up, alive and well, though somewhat a little perplexed.

We are pleased to announce that having returned to our original supplier. We are now in possession of official O.W.L and N.E.W.T exam papers. As it has been a couple of years since we were last able to hold exams, all those of you who did not have that opportunity to take your exams in the last two years will be able to take them now, along with those who are newly eligible this year. If you have earned the required 100 homework points, that is.

Begin the Ordinary Wizarding Levels.
Begin the Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests.

Exams will remain open for two weeks.

On a related note: we currently have ten thousand copies of Sizable Abraxan Trials and Applicable Cockatrice Tests available for sale. Please see the bursar to purchase one.

Music Forum Grand Opening!

7:46 am - Chris_Phoenix

Music is such an elemental part of the human experience. It brings people together, it is a way to forget the bad times, and a way to get out on the dance floor and just have fun. We listen to it, sing along with it, dance to it, and some of us even write and perform our own music! Our lives wouldn't be the same without music.

That's why the Caretakers are proud to announce that we're opening a new forum dedicated solely to the discussion of music! The new Music Room will be a place for people to discuss their favorite bands, artists, musical genres, and if you're old enough per the COPPA terms, even share some of your own music with us! We'll have polls and monthly discussions as well. Maybe you'll even learn about a new type of music and come to love it!

What are you waiting for? Dance on over to The Music Room and open your ears to the lovely music!

3:36 pm - Lu

There have been weddings in churches, weddings done on the fly, weddings done by the justice of the peace -- but there has never been a wedding quite like this one. Neville Longbottom and Hannah Abbott are finally ready to tie the knot, and they've invited you to join in their festivities.

The Quibbler - August 2014

7:00 am - harry_fun

No, the Quibbler is not turning into your monthly sports informer. However, it doesn't mean we cannot dedicate an issue to all things Magical Games and Sports. So if you are one of those enthusiastic sport lovers (and even if you are not) , you won't want to miss this issue. Enjoy! If you have questions or comments, owl Ted or Allie.
