Most of you know that HEX relies on volunteers to moderator the website and keep it running smoothly. Without their hard work, we'd not have this website we enjoy, nor the numerous amount of activities to keep us entertained. Our moderators choose to give their time back to our community by helping out in site positions. When we see someone who goes above and beyond, we like to reward that dedication with promotions.

Therefore, the following moderators have been promoted to the role of Global Moderator: coffeeaddiction91, greenjelly, Ilostmyleftshoe, kaiou_michiru8, Lipster, Maddy, and SunkenSilver.

We're very excited to see these moderators in their new positions, and can't wait to see what they bring to the team! Please help us in congratulating them!

Quidditch End of the Season Bonfire

12:05 am - desi

George: "I can't see anyone trying to bump off a quidditch team."
Fred: "Wood might've done the Slytherins if he could've got away with it."

Something is going on over at The Quidditch Pitch. The stars are shining down and a fire burns brightly at the center of the field. Students from all Houses have congregated around the fire, excitement heavy in the air. The Quidditch season is over and it's time to celebrate.

The Overseers are closing the pitch for the next year to rebuild HEX Quidditch from the ground up. Come join us for our End of the Season Bonfire as we burn the old to make way for the new!

Welcome Center - May Update

7:11 am - Aurora

Twenty-Two years ago on May 2nd, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and many others fought against the Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort himself. The Wizarding World doesn't need to live in fear of You Know Who anymore, but the events of that night and the war are not ones they'll ever forget. Help us keep the memory alive in A Momentous May. If the topic of battles and war is too much, then we have a different type of battle for you. Take part in the fight against hammers and crafts, as we take on DIY Projects or discuss them at least.

Our monthly Newbie Raffle for new users has some amazing, lovely prizes up for grabs and of course our usual spread. It's a duck pond raffle, which means that nobody will go home emptyhanded. Sounds good? Come check it out over here! And if you have questions as you learn your way around HEX, feel free to ask in our Q&A thread!

And finally, if you are under 13 years of age we have a special place just for you here on HEX. Come and visit the Weasley Hideout for even more contests, activities and chat threads for our younger members of the site to get stuck into!

Publications Management - May Update

2:00 pm - LinSpinner

We solemnly swear that we are up to no good in The Newsstand this month! And while we may not have the Marauder's Map to assist us, we've got the next best thing - other maps! The April issue of The Quibbler delved into all things map-related, and we're continuing the theme. Can you find your way to this map discussion without getting lost?

If you lose your way, you just might stumble into a trap - a trap we set to lure you into a discussion about pranks inspired by the WWN's April broadcast. But the jokes don't stop there! Come put your pranking skills to the test and create A Trick to Rival the Twins. Can you out-do the wizarding world's top jokester duo?

Participation in any of these activities will earn you a chance to win some snazzy prizes in the The Newsstand Quarterly Raffle.

RPC May Updates

1:00 pm - LinSpinner

John, Michael, and Wendy weren’t the only children Peter Pan whisked away to Neverland. In fact, in May’s RPotM, your character might get a chance to go there too. However, it’s a bit different from what you might remember. Want directions to this reinvented Neverland? Just head towards the Second Star To The Right, and straight on ‘til morning!

They may not run into any gods in Neverland, but you just might in this month’s Freestyle. What happens when pantheons collide, and Tyr encounters Ares or Hathor meets Venus? Will they get along, or will everything devolve into A Mythological Mess?

Perhaps you’re interested in mythology, but crossovers aren’t really your style. How about heading to the Lounge to put your own spin on a classic story instead? As long as you use the right words, I’m sure you could create some really Twisted Tales.

As always, be sure to make your way to May’s Participation Raffle to get your hands on prizes even Midas couldn’t dream of!

Ministry of Magical Arts :: May Update

3:28 pm - AiyanaShandley

MoMA have gone supernova this month with our space theme. However, we need your help to deal with all these planets and aliens swirling around us! Maybe designing a new habitat for an alien in the Graphics Challenge is something you can help us with unless you'd rather put on your explorer helmet and discover a new alien species in the Writing Challenge.

Of course, there's always more going on in our forums! Why don't you stop by and check out what's happening? Swing by each forum's watch thread, linked below for your convenience. Also, we will be consolidating updates for the Gallery and Exhibition into one watch thread after this month, so keep an eye on that thread for updates in both forums going forward!

This month in the Magical Archives, a few quite important and well-known personalities are cropping up. Hermione, for example, is now teaching Defense against the Dark Arts. How does her class go?
