The administrators of the Total War Center site and forums are collectively known as the Hexagon Council or 'Hex'. When the new Syntagma was introduced they ceased to be known as the 'Hexagon Council'. However, eventually the old name was introduced again. Currently, the administrators of TWC are officially known as the Hexagon Council, or Hex in short, again.
This Council is the main body which performs the day to day administering of the Total War Center and its forums. Council members can be identified as wearing the following badge:
The current system of administration was introduced after imb39 bought the site and a new Syntagma was introduced. The old system which this is loosely based around was created after the Merger of the Old Hex and the Triumvirate caused by the aftermath of the Staff Reforms in October 2006. The internal working of the Council is for the most part determined by itself. Members are usually promoted from Junior moderators following an internal vote, although members may equally be promoted from outside of Staff at the Councils discretion as current events and requirements dictate.

Before the May 2005 crisis, an administrative account named simply Hexagon was shared by Hex members to carry out various duties and to post on behalf of Hex as a whole. In that crisis, however, the account was used by Crandar to impersonate Spartan and carry out various bannings and modifications. After that was uncovered, the account was demoted to the rank of Civitates and has not been used since except for the occasional joke by an admin.
