It's undeniable that HEX has an outstanding team of global moderators. They often go above and beyond to assist users however they can, all while doing whatever it takes to make the site the best it can be. On this team, we sometimes have users who go above, and are stellar examples of what it means to be not just a moderator, but a leader, too. As such, we would like to announce two more well-deserved promotions!

Please join us in congratulating Brandon and Steph on their promotion to Junior Staff!

Fantastic work, y'all! We cannot wait to see what other wonderful things you accomplish!

Site Character Accounts

11:11 am - Ninja Kitten

SCA, or Site Character Accounts, are the canon characters that you see out and about during HEX events. They bring great joy and excitement to our users on a daily basis.

We need more help at this time in order to give our awesome users the BEST possible experience they can have. Please note that we remain completely anonymous when using a character - we want everyone to be able to let loose, and not be afraid of being flamed or trolled for their portrayals. We do ask that each of you continues to respect their privacy in regards to that.

Is anyone out there brave enough to come and play with us? Hop on over to take a look at the SCA Application, and have a drink with me! All applications will be judged anonymously in order to be as fair as possible. Applications are now open permanently, so fill out an application when YOU have the time. While you are there, why not take some time and poke around as well -you never know what you'll find in Rosmerta's Office!

Publications Management - July Updates

1:35 pm - Aelara

The Newsstand is here to ask, 'Have you hugged a Hufflepuff today?' The Daily Prophet really channeled the traits of our beloved badger friends and worked hard to bring us a thoughtful edition highlighting our amiable Hufflepuffs. In spirit with this edition, The Newsstand is bringing you the Hufflepuff Appreciation Day Challenge, a contest truly worthy of the Hufflepuffs we salute.

There is even more to explore in the fascinating world of our non-magical counterparts, Muggles, with our discussion based on the latest broadcast of the WWN.

If Muggles are too tame for you, then you should venture over to the discussion on the latest edition of The Quibbler, which explored the inner workings of The Quibbler and its staff. Participation in The Newsstand's monthly discussions and/or the contest will earn you a ticket for the Newsstand Quarterly Raffle. You can keep up-to-date with the latest news about the wizarding world by visiting The Newsstand.

New Issue of The Quibbler!

8:09 pm - Zoe

Once upon a time, there lived a mean, mean wizard...

Oh, er... hi there! Apologies for the impromptu story time! You see, this month at The Quibbler, the theme was all about stories and if I can be honest, some of us never quite got out of story-telling mode. Oops. Instead of listening to a poorly told rendition of The Evil Wizard That Should(n't), why don't you all just pick up a copy of The Quibbler's July issue and check out some much better stories for yourself?

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe.

Tumultuous Times

7:26 pm - Hex Staff

"A grim mood has gripped the country," the opponent had concluded, barely concealing his own broad grin.

And unfortunately, this was perfectly true. The Prime Minister felt it himself; people really did seem more miserable than usual. Even the weather was dismal; all this chilly mist in the middle of July... It wasn't right, this wasn't normal...

- Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter One

It's summertime and we all know what that means... it's time for a HEX-hosted summer event! This year, it's an Inter-House Competition and it's all about Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Unfortunately, the wizarding world is becoming more dangerous by the day and no one is safe. In an attempt to help keep the darkness at bay, we urge you to head on over to the event forum. There, you will find a variety of contests designed to help busy your brain and distract you from the world around you. Grab your wands and keep your families close, HEXians. The Second Wizarding War is nearly upon us. Are you ready?

Backyard Legends

12:44 am - Amy

"Ginny! Mind that Bludger - it's going to hit the shed!"

"Nice bluff, Charlie, but if I were you, I'd keep your eyes on that Snitch; the gnomes are eyeing it."

That's right - it's time for Quidditch: Weasley-style. Come and join us for Backyard Legends, a good old-fashioned Quidditch Tourney where the game is more sandlot than sophisticated. Everyone is welcome; no prior experience is necessary. There's also a participation bonus waiting for you and House points to be won!

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your broom, sign up to participate, cheer your friends and teammates on, and join in the fun today!

Magical Archives July Update

3:12 pm - vievelynn

Is working in closed offices and stores not your thing? Perhaps you were meant to shine in the spotlight all along. Don't miss your cue this July because Life After Hogwarts is making a comeback, featuring Arts and Entertainment in our Tales of Beedle the Bard forum. The first act is up, so plunge into the comical collaboration in Farce and Farcilibility!

Participating in any of our Life After Hogwarts events will earn you tickets toward our monthly raffle. Don't forget to stop by our Table of Contents to be directed to all that is going on in the Magical Archives, because the Book of Records may just be one - or more - tickets away.

If you didn't already know, the Contest System from the Contest Forum has officially migrated to the Magical Archives. For more information, please check out this thread.
