Goblin Silent Auction


10:53 pm - HEX Staff


The Goblins have always felt a deep connection with money, after all they mint much of the wizarding worlds currency. So it comes as no surprise that it makes the goblins of Gringotts VERY angry when people do not pay the fee for their vaults... So angry in fact that the Goblins of Gringotts have decided to do something they have never done, auction off valuables from the vaults that are over-due on their payments.

Now is your chance to win some of the more coveted items from these abandoned vaults! Head on over HERE to check it out.

Keep an eye out, they will be holding these sales periodically in Goblin City

Site Image Posting


3:22 pm - HEX Staff


As most of you are aware, HEX has been experiencing issues with graphics posting from Imgur. Unfortunately, Imgur no longer allows sites like HEX to use their site for content delivery, meaning that we can no longer use Imgur for avatars, forum headers, signatures, contest submissions, randomization proofs, or any other graphics for embedded images or hotlinks.

Luckily, there are other image-sharing sites that do allow hotlinks for use on sites like HEX:
- postimages.org
- cubeupload.com
- kek.gg: This site does not have accounts or albums; if you are looking to save links to images, we recommend compiling a list of links elsewhere, such as in a document on your device or in a thread in your store, form, or club.
- giphy.com: This site is only used for gifs - still photos such as pictures, contest entries, or randomization proofs cannot be uploaded.

These are just some of the websites that may be available that we have found through our research. It is in no way an exhaustive list and there may be other websites available for use on HEX that are not listed here. Please keep in mind that we are not responsible for images posted on these or any other sites outside of Hogwarts Extreme.

If you have any questions, please feel free to owl Maia, Katie, or Lilyleia78.

Thank you.

Publications Management - June Updates


9:23 am - Aelara



As always, The Newsstand team is in the depths of the news most important to our community. Join us in The Newsstand this month as we move at a snail's pace like a common Muggle and celebrate breakfast!

Muggles are fascinating to some and peculiar to others, but have you really taken the time to think about them and their lifestyles? The WWN May broadcast did and gave us all a glimpse into Muggle lives. Now, you can try your hand at some 'ordinary' Muggle tasks in Muggle Mishaps.

We have all been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and in its May edition, The Quibbler took this meal and really dug into it. Now, it is your turn to join in on the discussion.

If you need a change of pace, the Daily Prophet really had to slow themselves down in their May edition to be 'At a Snail's Pace'. It is time to discuss all things from the mollusk itself to some people's favorite pastime of procrastination.

However, there is no time to procrastinate, so hurry on over and participate in June's events, there are Prizes, Galleons, and House Points up for grabs! All activities end on June 28th.
