Now Showing: Easter Mayhem


9:04 am - Chrissy




It's that time of the year again - the snow is melting, the flowers are beginning to bloom, and bunnies are hopping about fields like there's no tomorrow. And, you know... That time of the year when the Easter Bunny leaves candies and treats for us! But wait... If it's Easter, what's with all the popcorn?

This time around, the Hufflepuff staff are inviting you to the movies - a drive-in, to be exact! Are you interested in a snack from the concession stands, or maybe a movie to watch? Perhaps you just want to chase Babbity Rabbity around in hopes of finding some goodies? Then leave your broomsticks at home and drive on into the theatre, where the next generation kids have a marathon of Easter surprises ready for you.

Are you ready?


8:51 pm - Ninja Kitten


At first, there were the pranks. Mean. Ruthless. Terrifying. Then, in return, they gave you memorable holidays. Fun. Gifts. Cheerfulness.

It's time for them to show you their magic one more time. This year it's going to go down harder than before. Prizes you won't even dare to dream of. Contests that will take you beyond your limits. Unity above all boundaries. Do you have what it takes to join us in a new adventure?

Coming Soon.

Why not be that someone and head on over to the A/G Forum? We look forward to seeing you there!

The Magical Archivists would love for you to come out and play with us. Each month there will be two contests in two separate Harry Potter archives. So join us on a journey back to Harry's third year as we examine life as a prisoner in Azkaban and then apparate on over to see if you've got what it takes to be a master of potions in Professor Snape's eyes. Here are this month's opportunities:

Dueling - Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff


2:35 am - Alisyn Malfoy




It's time to celebrate one of the greatest men in English history. No, not King George the Third, or King Arthur. I'm talking about the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare. The prolific man (allegedly) penned a vast number of theatrical works that are still performed to this day, and as a dramatic after his own heart, Lockhart has seen fit to celebrate this innovator of the English language with the students of Hogwarts, just in time for Shakespeare Week. Head over to the Great Hall to see famous sets brought to life! Oh, and to watch some of the students curse and maim each other.

The fourth set of duels is between Noble Gryffindor and Determined Hufflepuff. Head over to the Great Hall to see which House will bring home the victory!

St. Patrick's Day


4:32 am - HEX Staff


St. Patrick's Day is very near! A day of green and lots of celebration. All of that will be occurring here on HEX of course! Be on the look out for multiple REs throughout the day with many items. Throw some auld sod to your friends, or club them with Seamus' Shillelagh. Share the luck with a four-leaf clover with them. Also, we heard it's raining Grindylows.

This year, we also bring you a fun new activity. You can go on an old fashioned leprechaun hunt for a chance at wonderful prizes! If you stumble upon that little bugger, try your best to catch him and the rewards will be immense!

Keep in mind our new RE Abuse Policy . Anyone detected excessively refreshing, going from page to page unreasonably, etc by the server will receive a warning on their first offense or be added to the RE ban list after a repeated offense and will not receive any future REs. Try to avoid bulk buying on RE days to avoid problems.

Note: All prank items will be deleted after 11:59 PM March 18th (the plushie, charms, whiskey and wine will stay).

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Emojis

😄 😊 😀 😎 😮
Emojis have officially been integrated onto the site. The entire library is available for mobile and non-mobile users to utilize. You can use them in owlpost, post shares, forum posts, and item giving. If you are on your mobile device, access and use them just like you would in a text message. For non-mobile users, you are given a set to start, but also can view the key to see what exists and how you type it. The key is linked in various places around the site for easy access.

iOS devices are 100% supported at this point, with Android mostly supported. Windows Phone is semi-supported. We will work to support Android and Windows Phone more in the future. For computers, all web browsers should display them just fine. Thank you!

Dueling Masters Rock Ireland


12:49 am - Rose


The Irish are in quite a festive mood. The Irish Quidditch Team just won a massive tournament, and with a well-known Irish holiday approaching, the Irish Ministry of Magic has decided a huge celebration is in order! Filius Flitwick and Garrick Ollivander were invited to join the festivities, as both Ravenclaws are legendary when it comes to wand work. The Irish MoM seems to have something up their sleeves as the culmination of the festivities. Itching to find out? Or maybe you just want an excuse to travel to Ireland? Whatever your reason, join the festivities by grabbing your portkey to Ireland!

Arts and Graphics - March


7:55 am - Sophia Oceanborn



Aww, babies, aren't they so cute? Well, debatable. For those who do like those mini humans, though, we have planned the month of March all about them! Check out our challenges.

For the writing challenge, you will have to decipher what those babies must be saying and thinking before they can even express it in words. The graphics challenge, on the other hand, requires you to design a newborn announcement. Well, good luck!

As always, the prizes;
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

Hourglasses & Donations


6:24 am - John


The hourglasses from the recent sitewide event have now made their way to the Great Hall and will now be the hourglasses for all of the house points! Keep a careful eye on them to monitor how each house is doing. A big thanks to Ted for creating and then customizing them for house point use!

Also, with the delay of January's donation items, some of you have asked if you could donate for February's, since a lot of you wait until the previous month's items come out to donate. For the next two days, you can donate through this page and have your donation count for February's items. The items will be given out in two days. Thank you!

You spoke, we listened.


5:58 pm - HEX Staff


Many people were disappointed that they did not earn lovebugs in the recent Valentine's Day event, so we added one more way for you to earn them so you can buy charm bracelets, charm boxes and, of course, charms in the Love Shack. Click here for more information on how you can earn 350 Lovebugs!
