Burrow Birthday Bash

Posted by Brandon on August 7, 2020 - 12:01 am

Family and friends gather together in celebration of Ginny's 15th birthday in hopes of spreading a little light and love in these bittersweet times. After all, in the words of Albus Dumbledore, "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light." However, there is much to be done to prepare the Burrow for all the festivities to be had. The cake needs to be made, decorations hung, gifts to be bought and wrapped, and of course, the birthday girl needs distracting. It won't do to have her spoiling the surprise.

Welcome everyone to the Burrow Birthday Bash! Hufflepuff Staff are excited to welcome you all for some fun, but a few things are still needing to be prepared before Ginny shows up. I'm sure there is plenty you can do to help. Why don't we ask everyone what they are working on and see if they could use some help setting up?

Top Students and Exams!

Posted by Nelly on August 1, 2020 - 11:38 am


Attention all students! If you participated in the 2019/2020 school term, we're quite certain that you're all awaiting with bated breath the announcement about Top Students. Well, the wait is officially over! Please head over to this thread in the Entrance Hall for more information!

Also! It's that time of the year again when the Great Hall is packed with desks and Madame Pomfrey is going through an unusually high amount of Calming Draught. That's right, students! It's time for O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s once again! If you are in your fifth year or higher, you are eligible for O.W.L.s, and if you're in your seventh or higher, you're eligible for N.E.W.T.s. Please keep in mind that this relies on what your account currently reflects, not where you will be after your move-up. To find out more - and to take the exams! - visit this thread!

New Quality Assurance Area

Posted by Cody on July 10, 2020 - 10:11 am


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.

Mission Statement:
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 users.

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!


New Feature: Preferred Pronouns

Posted by HEX Staff on July 6, 2020 - 6:16 pm


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.

Beyond the Corridor

Posted by Nelly on July 3, 2020 - 2:58 pm


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.

Site Survey

Posted by HEX Staff on June 30, 2020 - 6:48 pm



As many of you have noticed, HEX is striving toward becoming a more diverse and welcoming site - for all. In doing this, we openly acknowledge that while we want to do what is best for our site, we cannot speak for everyone. As such, we would love to hear from each of you so that we can do our best to make informed decisions about what you, our users, want to see.

If you are interested, head to this thread to find out how you can contribute!
