From the Grounds!


3:18 am - Char



During this month of romance, the students of Hogwarts aren't the only ones pairing up! The staff have also found love, but instead of opting for more public gestures such as flowers or valentines, the two of you prefer a little more anonymity. Can you keep everyone convinced that you are nothing more than coworkers, and why are you going to such trouble to conceal your relationship? Head out to the Forbidden Forest and join Fancy Meeting You Here! All entries are due February 28, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. HEX time.

Please keep the Grounds' Watch Thread on watch for updates regarding activities and events like the current Bi-Weekly Chat, as well as Roleplay and Roleplayer of the Month.

Site Store Contest: Winner!


1:49 am - Grant


The Marketing Department has FINALLY chosen a winner for the Site Store Contest! Hex is full of creative and talented users - but, we narrowed it down to a design that was not only creative but something that everyone could wear!

Congratulations, Naiseymae!


Naisey's design not only included one image, but two from each house! Both sets of her images have been uploaded into the "Product Editor" within the Site Store. These images can be added to any product alone, or together (think the front and back of a tee)! We got you guys started by adding Naisey's image to the front of a few sports tees, which are available now! Remember, you can use these shirts as a template, add Naisey's other images, or create a version of your own product with one of her creations.

We received almost 200 submissions for this contest and with so many amazing entries it was extremely hard to choose a winner. Hop on over to THIS thread to see our runners up and to share your own submissions.

Arts & Graphics Forum Update :: February


11:40 am - Sara



Winter still has its chilly grasp on us, (at least us northern hemisphere folk ;) ) so this month the A&G forum is diving into the world of White Queens. What better way to spend the chilly days writing an origin story of your very own White Queen? Or how about creating cover art based on some songs that make you think of your White Queen?

Are you in need of some graphics, writing, coding or other artwork? Don't forget about the ISO Thread! Or if you're looking for some work to practice your skills and prevent from getting rusty, drop by and pick up an order (or six)!

The winners will go home with galleons and House Points, and their entries will be published on the official HEX Tumblr page.
1st Place: 10,000 Galleons + 3,000 House Points
2nd Place: 5,000 Galleons + 2,000 House Points
3rd Place: 2,000 Galleons + 1,000 House Points

Valentine's Day Vexations


12:44 am - Zoe



It's Gilderoy's favorite holiday of the year - Valentine's Day! He adores the chocolates and the cards, the presents and the dates, but... what's this? Spilled drinks? Missing gifts? Lover's spats? Tears?! What kind of a Valentine's Day is this?!

Join the Ravenclaw House staff in some Valentine's Day Vexations as they investigate the darker side of Valentine's Day for the next two weeks, where things aren't always as pink and glittery as Gilderoy would like! While you're wandering around, be sure to keep your eye out for any Valentines that might be laying around, too...
