Charm Bracelets, Charm Boxes and Lovebugs

8:06 pm - Nefarious Black

So alot of people have been asking if the bracelets and boxes would have an action, or could be equipped. The answer is yes. We had planned to have the coding done for all of this by now, so there wouldn't be any confusion, but it has just been one of those months. :P We would suggest that everyone get a box and bracelet from the store while they still can. Once the coding is done, I think most users would be disappointed, if they didn't have these items, when they could have, if only they had known.These items and more, can be purchased with lovebugs here. The store will only be opened for a limited time, so act fast!
All updates on this subject can be found in this forum.

Dueling - Ravenclaw vs. Slytherin

4:15 am - Alisyn Malfoy

It's time to get a taste of new cultures! The ever-so-wonderful and great Dueling Master, Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, has prepared an infusion of the Asian world for the Great Hall in celebration of the Lunar New Year. Stop by to see the firecrackers, lion dances, and profusion of scarlet ribbons and banners! While you're there, grab a moon cake to munch on while you watch a stunning display of creativity and ingenuity between fellow students. With any luck, there won't be too much blood, and if there is, maybe it'll add to the decor?

The third set of duels is between Clever Ravenclaw and Cunning Slytherin. Head over to the Great Hall to see which House will bring home the victory!

What am I?

4:44 pm - Ninja Kitten

I am a recipient of great value
Yet no wine has ever filled me
I am both worshiped and viewed with terror
For I am the fate bearer.

As a dragon, flames I spit
And with them, I call the ones
I doom to desperation
Or eternal admiration.

For The Love Of Merlin

10:28 am - xxmissyxx101

The great wizard, Merlin, has come to join the Slytherins for Valentine's Day. Looking as his fellow Slytherins, he is somewhat disappointed about how certain students act towards Muggles, seeing his previous hard work going to waste.

Over the next two weeks, he hopes to change our attitudes on Muggles and help us see that Muggles can be something to love and honour. He will show us the way to live peacefully and the reasons why he started the Order of Merlin in the first place.

Being the kind and loving wizard that he is, he wants to invite everyone from every house to share this compassion, so come join the Slytherin Staff and Merlin, for this Valentine's Day.

New RE Abuse Policy

8:43 am - Ninja Kitten

Valentine's Day 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, persay, but one that we felt needed to be addressed with the site as a whole. With the random event activities we put on last 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.

Any user that is found to be abusing the privileges that come along with HEX holiday fun and random events will be given ONE warning to stop their abuse. If it continues or happens again at any point in the future they will be banned from receiving said holiday random events on HEX. The banned users will be given ONE chance to owl a site admin to have their ban lifted six months after the ban occurred. If lifted, and the user shows signs of abuse at any point afterwards, the ban will change into a ban for the rest of their time on HEX. That means that this ban is a lifetime ban and is non-negotiable. The users who are banned will receive an owl telling them as such.

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
