The Atrium

It's officially fall here at Hogwarts and The Atrium wants to help keep you all warm and cozy with a brand-new round of polls, trivia, #MeetTheTeam, and contests!

We've got two new polls ready and we can't wait to hear what you have to say (please note the new voting method!), as well as a new participation raffle and HEXperience trivia to test your vast amounts of HEX knowledge! Be sure to stop by the Fountain of Magical Brethren to chat with two more site staffers and ask them a question or two!

As always, if you've run across a bug or a glitch somewhere on the site, please stop by the Errors and Glitches thread to tell us all about them. Don't forget to drop by our suggestions threads to share that brilliant spark of an idea that hit you at 3:00am this morning!

New Issue of The Quibbler!


1:59 am - Zoe



Legs. We all have them, we all use them, but just how much do you think about yours? It's likely that it's not nearly as much as you should, which is why the writers of The Quibbler spent the past month researching all things leg-related. With them being such a large part of our lives, it's important that we're aware of what goes on with them, right? Oh, don't give me that look. Instead, just use your legs and make your way on over to the Newsstand and pick up a copy of The Quibbler's September issue! It's the only entertainment you'll knee-d.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about The Quibbler, please either visit The Newsstand or send an owl to Zoe.

Donations Contact & Anniversary Items


12:24 am - John


The Donation Program launched all the way back in March 2006. Since then, HEX has evolved, plenty of new features have been added, and things are very different from what they were then. A big part of that is because of each and every one of you who has donated to the site since then.

Like the site, the Donation Program has grown and received several overhauls throughout the years. We find ourselves at the great stage of having to come up with a new way to handle things. For that reason, in addition to myself, Jojo will be helping out with the Donation Program from now on. Jojo has been apart of the staff for over five years now, has continually proven her trustworthiness, and has recently been learning how donations work behind the scenes. In order for things to be handled in a more seamless and timely manner, a specific account has been created to centralize and handle all donation-related queries. This new account is simply called 'Donations'. So, if you have any questions, suggestions, or issues related with donations, owl Donations and one of us will get back to you as soon as possible!

Lastly, all donation anniversary item pools for all levels have been updated and refreshed with brand new items that have never been released before. For more information on how donation anniversaries work, see here!

Thank you!
