Grey feather

Do we need this page? We don't (currently) have pages for some of the older collectible items that are rather generic, like the postcard from London or the hair pin, at least not to my knowledge. It doesn't have a (in-universe) use, so I see no reason it should have an article. Might be worth a redirect to Errol, though, since I'm fairly certain that's whose feather this is. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 18:12, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

If I can give my opinion, it seems evident that the grey feather is an owl's feather. We can only rename the page in "Owl feather", no ? And, after, we can merge this page with the Eagle owl feather's page. Like that, we can put all owl feathers on the same page. It can be more pratical for everyone ^^ --Lady Junky (talk) 18:34, November 6, 2012 (UTC)
I like the merge option, and Feather used to practice the Levitation Charm could also be included if it's established it really is from a Snowy Owl. --xensyriaT 15:32, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

Images by Alex789

This user has been adding to various character pages (invariably, that I've seen, either at the end of "Behind the scenes" or at the beginning of "Appearances"), images which are composites of various points in that character's career, despite such images being not the kind of image we want on this wiki (according to Rainbow Shifter, anyway), and in the latest case, adding such an image a third time despite it having already been deleted twice (it would seem that some people just can't take a hint). The fact that the latest addition was not only reverted but met with a one-month block is an indication that Rainbow Shifter's interpretation of the image policy is indeed correct.

In any case, many of these images are of inadequate quality (poor contrast, weird colour casts, excessive cropping, etc.) even if we want images of this type in articles — and some of them have falsely been labelled as Gnu GPL images, despite clearly being composed of screen grabs from the movies and thus subject to Warner Bros.' copyright.

I've thus gone through all images uploaded by this user, and tagged all the composite ones for deletion (and removed them from articles, if used); I think someone (or several people) should go through the rest of his images, with a view to possible quality or copyright issues. Even where absent such issues, I suspect that there are several of these images which were uploaded simply for the sake of uploading them, and which thus if not used and not likely to be used, could also be deleted. — RobertATfm (talk) 05:18, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

You're absolutely right, and any such images definitely should be deleted. I don't have much time right now, but I'll have an initial look and start purging some. ProfessorTofty (talk) 05:24, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
I've deleted ~25 of them that RobAT has tagged. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 05:32, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

I suspect that what we have here is not cluelessness but deliberate and systematic vandalism. Take a look, for example, at the May 27, 2012 at 03:00 (I think that's UTC+1) revision of "Harry Potter"; scroll down so that the "Appearances" section is in the middle of your screen, and you will clearly see where two of these images were inserted into the article, close together, and both inserted by Alex789. Since the second one is literally only a few lines below the first, don't tell me that he didn't know perfectly well what he was doing. — RobertATfm (talk) 10:05, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
