==Edit warring on the [[Emma Watson]] page==
  +
Can someone please solve this issue that is being caused by [[User:MorgothGReat|another editor]] that is making false additions to the Emma Watson page. She isn't blonde, her eyes aren't light brown, they aren't hazel, they aren't light. And she's not 4.6.
   
==FleurIsabelleDelacour==

She may have dyed her hair blonde in the past, but her official hair colour is light brown. Also if there's going to be a debate as to whether her eyes are dark or light brown, I think that it should remain tweaked to a more neutral description, or otherwise change the information back to dark brown, because her eyes are clearly not light brown, and they clearly aren't hazel. ― '''[[User:C.Syde65|<font color="maroon">C.Syde</font>]]''' ([[User talk:C.Syde65|<font color="black">talk</font>]] &#124; [[:Special:Contributions/C.Syde65|<font color="black">contribs</font>]]) 09:59, March 27, 2016 (UTC)
[[User:FleurIsabelleDelacour]] has consistently vandalized Luna Lovegood's page today, and has continued to do so after being warned. Additionally, she (assuming she, anyway) has had an additional warning for vandalism in the past. -- [[User:1337star|1337star]] ([[User_talk:1337star|Owl Post]]) 21:52, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

Personally, I don't the purpose of listing the eye and hair colours of actors in their infoboxes, since it strikes me as fluff/trivia, rather than useful or interesting information which could assist the reader in understanding of the article's subject. With fictional characters, on the other hand, providing a description of physical appearance is useful, since the fictional characters exist strictly within the realm of imagination, and summarizing the imaginary world of the HP novels is our mandate. <span style="color: green">&#x2605;</span> [[User:Starstuff|<span style="color: green">S</span><span style="color: dimgrey">t</span><span style="color: green">a</span><span style="color: dimgrey">r</span><span style="color: green">s</span><span style="color: dimgrey">t</span><span style="color: green">u</span><span style="color: dimgrey">f</span><span style="color: green">f</span>]] <sup>[[User talk:Starstuff|<span style="color: darkgreen">(Owl me!)</span>]]</sup> 19:15, March 27, 2016 (UTC)

==86.2.0.20==
 
Since September of last year, [[User Talk:86.2.0.20|86.2.0.20]] has been repeatedly vandalising [[Dan Seekings]], despite two warnings. [[User:ProfessorTofty|ProfessorTofty]] 00:42, January 6, 2012 (UTC)

==Yellowdragon1020==
 
[[User:Yellowdragon1020]] is using account almost solely for user page vandalism. Has not only done so after being warned on their talk page, but has gone so far as to attempt to remove said warning from the page twice as of this posting, and was warned that this is not acceptable the first time this occurred. -- [[User:1337star|1337star]] ([[User_talk:1337star|Owl Post]]) 02:49, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

==Alex789==
 
 
I informed [[User:Alex789]] yesterday evening that fan-edited images are unacceptable for the mainspace, and reminded them to watch how they insert images into articles. Failure to do the latter contributed to a previous block to this user. Since this warning, this user has uploaded at least two blatantly fan-edited images, and placed at least one image incorrectly (you can see an example of such conduct [http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Ronald_Weasley?diff=prev&oldid=707412 here]). This, I feel, is unacceptable. -- [[User:1337star|1337star]] <sup>([[User_talk:1337star|Drop me a line!]])</sup> 17:31, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

EDIT: Additionally, [[User:King Monday]], obviously affiliated with the site that is in relation to this issue, has attempted to remove a valid notability tag from the page MyHogwarts.co.uk (article in question, being a fansite that has been around for less than one year, does not satisfy the notability guidelines) multiple times. I fear there may be a communication issue here, however; I have informed this user of why said article is up for deletion, but they claim in [http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/MyHogwarts.co.uk?curid=143585&oldid=712188 this] edit summary (made after said message) to have not received an explanation of this fact. -- [[User:1337star|1337star]] <sup>([[User_talk:1337star|Drop me a line!]])</sup> 00:00, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
 
==Photo used witout consent==
 
''(6/29/12)'' Hi, I'm a cosplayer who stumbled upon this site via a google no-text image search. I don't know how to really work this site, but [[User:Lavender_Loriante]] is using a photo of me as her profile picture and I would like it removed, if possible. Apologies if I am not following the correct channels, but this seemed the easiest way for me, as a non-member of the community, to get my issue heard.
