Reminder: RE Abuse

7:08 pm - HEX Staff

HEXmas is approaching and we all know what that means: fun activities to enjoy with our friends and fellow HEXians. Along with the fun and games, though, comes a bit of order.

This is not a new policy, but one that we felt needed to be addressed with the site as a whole due to the rather large enrollment that we've had the past few months. With the random event activities we put on this year came a bit of rule-breaking. Several users were found to be abusing the fun random events that dropped across the site.

These random events are meant to be fun and to be given to users who are active on the site. It is not meant to be given in excess to any one user. Abuse of random events can be found by not only excessively refreshing a page, but also in several other methods that have been employed by users.

Abuse of random events leads to a very diluted market for certain items and that means a decrease in over-all value. This all leads to users not being able to have as much fun as they could have if everyone followed the rules.

So for this holiday season, and all those in the future, please follow ALL HEX rules. It really does help to make the holidays that much more enjoyable! <3

New Issue of The Daily Prophet!

11:15 am - icemousey

Alas! The magical printers at the Headquarters went on a permanent strike. We had to remove the classifieds column due to this mishap. Fret not! We have a new column for your reading pleasure! On the Streets is hot off the presses and we find out what you, the readers, really think about your HEX experience!

Our archive is still full of previous, awesome articles for you to read. Even though it's top secret, we'll let you in!

Rarity Change

9:12 pm - Rose

Due to the ever increasing amount of users on the site, and the very large influx over the past few months, it has been decided that Item Rarities needed to undergo a change. The new system is as follows:

1 Virtually Priceless (100 or less)
2 Extremely Rare (More than 100, 200 or less)
3 Rare (More than 200, 400 or less)
4 Uncommon (More than 400, 800 or less)
5 Slightly Uncommon (More than 800, 1300 or less)
6 Common (More than 1300, 2500 or less)
7 Extremely Common (More than 2500)

We understand that some users may be upset with this change. While we do understand where you would be coming from, the fact of the matter is that keeping the rarities the same is just not feasible with the amount of users we currently have. Neither economically nor from a designer's standpoint. This decision is final.

House Duels

2:11 pm - Ninja Kitten

It's time to celebrate the festival of lights! No, we're not talking about Hannukah; it's a month too early for that. We mean Diwali, the Indian festival celebrating the victory of good over evil. The worldly Gilderoy Lockhart has just returned from a demon-banishing trip to the Indian subcontinent and has brought back a taste of the local culture for the edification of his adoring students. But the question remains: who will be victorious in the battle of Humble Hufflepuff versus Well-Read Ravenclaw? Head on over to the Great Hall to find out!

Escape from Gringotts

10:51 am - Nicole2013

Being a pretty experienced treasure hunter, you've decided to take on the ultimate prize: Gringotts Wizarding Bank. You're practically drooling at the thought of what precious valuables are tucked away in the many, many vaults. Fast forward several weeks and five notebooks full of details to remember; you've made it into the bank without alerting the goblins.

However, that was the easy part. Now that you've gotten in, you have to get out - with the treasure. That's the important part, right? You would never be able to show your face in the "treasure hunting" community ever again if you came out empty-handed. Are you up for the challenge?

Join the Slytherin Staff in Escape From Gringotts for an adventure that you won't want to miss.

Have you ever wondered what bands would be Harry's favorite? Or maybe you want to know what musical opportunities Hogwarts has for you? If so, you won't want to miss this month's WWN Broadcast!

Do you have any suggestions concerning WWN, want to nominate a HEXian of the Month, or submit a guest segment? Head on over to The Newsstand.

If you have any general concerns about the this month's issue of WWN, you can send an owl to Nicole2013 or WWN. Or you can check in with Icemousey in Publication Management.

"I've got a bad feeling about this." - Anakin Skywalker

Sometimes, the Arts & Graphics forum come up with really spectacular ideas for our monthly themes, this month, not so much. So, we're asking for your infinite patience and creativity to turn our terrible ideas into something beautiful. For the writing challenge, you are being asked to take the most cliche story ideas and make them fresh, new, and most of all, not terrible. For the graphic challenge, forgive us for this, you are challenge to take a terrible font (like Comic Sans) and turn into a work of art. Good luck, you'll need it. If you need something less awful to look at, you should go check out the gorgeous Artwork of the Month. Trust us, it's way prettier than our ideas.

As always, the winners will go home with galleons and House Points, and their entries will be published on the official HEX Tumblr page.

2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
