"Step into a scene and let it drip from your fingertips." Main competition | Audience participation
— MJ Bush —
What words are waiting for your quill? Entire worlds are begging to come to life, and there are many stories still left untold. Project Ink is back, and if you haven't joined us in previous years, you have the opportunity to stretch those brain muscles for this all writing competition. Various rounds are calling you to join the ranks of the greats. And this year we are pulling inspiration from Hogwarts Extreme and the many things it offers us all. You can find out how to compete and apply in the 2020 Applications Thread.
And if writing isn't your thing, don't think you'll be left out of the fun. You can participate in the audience thread, where plenty of prizes can be won.

As part of our continued commitment to creating a safe, welcoming environment for our entire
user base, HEX Staff is pleased to announce that we will be establishing a new area entitled Quality Assurance, under which there will be two committees - Diversity and Customer Service - to help oversee essential site operations. Read below to review our mission statement, each team's anticipated responsibilities, and to find out how you can contribute to our efforts to facilitate diversity, inclusivity, and user-friendliness on HEX. We value each of your unique voices and hope this provides you all with a platform through which you can make yourselves, your needs, and your concerns heard
To create a safe, fair, and welcoming HEX that is sensitive to and fully supportive of the needs of its diverse user base. Our goal is to enforce HEX's stringent anti-discrimination stance and ensure that all site policies and content reflect the fact that discrimination will not
be tolerated in any of its forms (e.g., transphobia, racism, sexism, etc.). Further, we aim to improve diversity and advocate for better representation of underserved communities in HEX's activities and content. Additionally, it is our intent to foster a more open environment between users and site staff to build trust and ensure that HEX is offering the best possible experience for all
To learn about each committee's responsibilities and how you can get involved, please head over to this thread to learn more.
We look forward to working with you all towards a better and brighter Hogwarts Extreme!

We are proud to announce that all user profiles have been updated. We've removed the now defunct Pottermore section, and added a Preferred Pronouns section in its place. To change your pronouns, simply go to your settings
. It is the last box before the "update settings" button.

You thought that with books and pencils being put down that all the hard work was behind you? Think again. If we've learned anything, it's that at the end of term the real struggle begins. Lurking in the depths of Hogwarts Castle is a set of challenges so devious that you just may have to be a Dark Lord or a wizarding legend to make it to the end. But as Snape said, clearly fame isn't everything. So bring all your skill and craft as you join us Beyond the Corridor.
