RE Abuse Policy: A reminder and clarification


6:51 am - HEX Staff


With the introduction of the new (lovely and exciting) spells system, there have been quite a few questions raised on whether looking for spells counts as Random Events (RE) abuse. In addition, with the ever increasing amount of events thrown on HEX that include the use of REs, we felt that it was in everyone's best interest to further clarify our Random Event Abuse Policy and maintain it in a public place for all to read.

In order for things to be (hopefully) clearer and more accessible to everyone, we are introducing a new format, a FAQ. This FAQ can be found here. It contains detailed information on what is a Random Event, what counts as random event abuse, what are the consequences of such abuse, and much more.

Remember, random events are made for you. They are meant to be fun, and to reward those users who are active on the site. We are not here - nor do we wish in any way - to monitor all activity on HEX, or to make anyone's life harder. We're here simply to take care of the cases where users are breaking the rules for profit. We're here to help you.

So, help us helping you. You can find more detailed information on this matter in this post.

Thank you.

You Can't Be Sirius


3:53 pm - Sara


Sirius Black is not having a good summer. His family is driving him crazy, and to make matters worse his Hogwarts friends seem to be having far more fun over the holidays than him. Today has been a particularly bad day, and as Sirius heads to bed he can’t help but wish he were in someone else’s shoes…


The Slytherin Staff are proud to present You Can’t Be Sirius – join us as we explore a number of parallel universes in which Sirius Black steps into the shoes of Muggle actor Gary Oldman, as well as celebrating the best Gary Oldman portrayal of them all: Sirius Black himself during his time at Hogwarts.

Palms sweating...hands shaking...the velvet box almost slips from his fingers. He just needs to get the words out. She's gonna say yes. He knows it. And as he starts to bend down on his knee, his balance waivers, knocking over a bowl of hot soup into his girlfriend's lap. Oh no...

There are important milestones in a relationship. A first kiss. Moving in together. Getting engaged. Getting married. We imagine that these moments are perfect, but life isn't that at all. Join Fan Fiction once more for our June Theme Prompt for a chance to win an item, galleons, and house points!

From the Grounds!

Simply Spellbinding


9:00 am - Spiora


The last year's OWLs were shocking to say the least, the professors were baffled at just how poorly students had done in all of their practical exams. What could have been the issue? One controversial professor had a theory...students simply weren't given enough opportunity or motivation to practice. McGonagall, always the open minded voice of reason suggested he propose a solution...

In a new initiative, students have been granted unfettered access to their wands in all areas of Hogwarts to send spells flying at will. They have also been granted new ways to learn new spells, and their very own spellbook to keep track...click to find out more!

New Issue of The Quibbler!


8:07 pm - Zoe


Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. Madness. Craziness. James in charge. Chaos. I'm not sure how I managed to escape from the disaster that was The Quibbler headquarters this month, but I've done it. Not just that, but I also snagged a copy of The Quibbler as I was running away screaming doing so. It's, uh... well, something happened to it, but it's here!

Fortunately, for those of you who cannot read backwards, Eline and I managed to restore it to it's intended state, too! If chaotic publications are a bit too chaotic for you, you can find the normal issue here.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or owl Zoe, Art, or Nicole.
