Archives:

FleurIsabelleDelacour

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. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 21:52, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

Blocked for all time. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 00:12, January 4, 2012 (UTC)

86.2.0.20

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

Hoomer15

User:Hoomer15 appears to have created account solely for the purpose of uploading fanon images, and has also added other fanon to pages. Has been warned thrice regarding this today. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 19:57, January 24, 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. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 02:49, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

Blocked. - Nick O'Demus 07:08, April 22, 2012 (UTC)

74.50.201.58

74.50.201.58, keep screwin' with the Harry Potter page. Derpherpherp 12:27, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Blocked. - Nick O'Demus 07:08, April 22, 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 here). This, I feel, is unacceptable. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 17:31, May 25, 2012 (UTC)

Miah5072 and King Monday

User:Miah5072 has continuously added a fanon incantation to the bluebell flames page, and has continued this conduct after being warned. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 22:22, June 10, 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 this edit summary (made after said message) to have not received an explanation of this fact. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 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. 71.234.249.51 19:54, June 29, 2012 (UTC) Gale

95.252.174.111

Need a block on 95.252.174.111 - is repeatedly vandalising another user's page. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:35, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

Taken care of. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:45, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
Thanks! But they're back at it, under another IP. ProfessorTofty (talk) 12:07, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
The user 188.11.71.11 makes similar vandalisms as the blocked user. I've rolled back but thought I should tell here. I would not be surprised if it's the same user. Words are too similar.
 Harry granger   Talk  contribs 15:19, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

Yes check Done. Also blocked. - Nick O'Demus 16:19, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Abusive photo

Look at this photo. I have no words for that. It should be speedily deleted: File:7SEz6.jpg  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 16:08, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yes check Done. Deleted and banned. - Nick O'Demus 16:19, July 1, 2012 (UTC)

94.191.187...

A user from a number of addresses in the above IP range keeps making the same type of edit to Educational Decree articles, despite those same edits having been reverted by both myself and an admin and several requests to stop. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:51, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

SanderPostema

SanderPostema continues to post images in violation of the image policy despite three previous requests to stop. He or she seems to be completing ignoring all given warnings. ProfessorTofty (talk) 16:44, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

81.157.255.218

Vandalising and blanking pages wildly; swift action needed. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:33, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Anton Potter

User:Anton Potter has shown clear disregard for rules, removing warnings from his talk page (including one from an administrator) multiple times, well after being informed in both edit summaries and directly on his talk page that this is not acceptable. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 22:16, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Not my daughter you bitch!

User:Not my daughter you bitch! has an unacceptable username. Corymach7 (talk) 21:59, October 25, 2012 (UTC)

Worthwhile contributor since 2011, the username is a line from one of the books. Sorry, but won't be blocked. ProfessorTofty (talk) 03:52, October 26, 2012 (UTC)
I'd just like to add a linguistic note: although generally used as an insult, "bitch" is also the correct technical term for a female dog, and in that context is a neutral term. Offensiveness is more about the intent of the usage than about the actual words used; something which is too-often forgotten, and is why I for one reckon that "political correctness" is a contradiction in terms. -- RobertATfm (talk) 06:58, October 26, 2012 (UTC)

Special:Contributions/116.212.235.98

Persistent vandalism, particularly to the House point hourglasses page (which I've reverted twice in the past three hours). -- RobertATfm (talk) 05:15, November 5, 2012 (UTC)

Another apparent vandalism-only account is Special:Contributions/ProfessorLongbottom. More subtle, things such as removing spaces between words (a lot of vandals on this wiki do that), inserting obvious nonsense into pages (if an enchanted bicycle is only kept and never ridden, how do Muggles become aware of it to report it to the police?), and signing article pages. -- RobertATfm (talk) 18:05, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Dobby

The above page has been vandalised by several IPs (in edits removing nearly all the contents) several times in the past couple of weeks. Perhaps it should be semiprotected for a month or so. — RobertATfm (talk) 02:16, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Agree, very troublesome pattern of editing and it looks like at least one user engaged in a number of bad edits and was never blocked. I'll take care of this. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:20, December 20, 2012 (UTC)

Dumbledore jr. from 79.250.183.84

Careful with this user. He has vandalized in the German Harry-Potter-Lexikon, where I am admin. I warned him. He did not stop his behaviour, so I blocked him for a week and now that page (deleted in the meantime). I thought I should warn you.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:59, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

User:Pancake_pizza

This user has today made several vandal edits to Tom Riddle (since reverted, of course), including changing the infobox image to one of two images he uploaded; both of which appear to be the box art for some fantasy game with no connection to the HP canon (I've flagged both of these images for deletion). — RobertATfm (talk) 14:56, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Warned, images deleted. ProfessorTofty (talk) 15:28, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

User:88.104.240.210

This user has today vandalized the user page of Hunnie Bunn and despite my warning - or because of my warning - he made insultings against me on my talk page. He should either be warned by an admin or blocked. His own talk page is also very interesting.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 21:38, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

This above mentioned user was again on my user talk page - Fuck word is now F word, but is that better?
 Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:38, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Blocked for a period of one month - obviously not here to build an encyclopedia. If you want to just remove the message they left, feel free. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:40, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

Contributions/189.182.24.26

Has blanked three pages (since restored), even claiming in one case to have made the page "more intelligent"[sic] — I suppose that's for all values of "e intelligent" equalling "onic". Why this user hasn't yet been slapped with a block of at least one month, I don't know. — RobertATfm (talk) 21:31, January 7, 2013 (UTC)

The user in question has only made those edits, back on January 3, and hasn't been back since. They were duly warned and if it's done again, a block will be made. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:39, January 7, 2013 (UTC)

User:Success777

Is here only to spam acne products, has posted a spam video. Clearly no interest in Harry Potter or in building an encyclopaedia. — RobertATfm (talk) 19:27, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

Video deleted and user blocked. ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:45, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
User:Cavite was also adding spam.

204.10.219.119, 82.8.36.222, 98.102.129.48, 71.185.150.187, 61.170.84, 94.8.254.79, 184.57.140.73

Please warn or block the first five users for removing the whole Harry Potter page, and adding in random information. The sixth user made a page, which cursed. Thanks for looking.   Yugimuto1    Talk   63 edits   21:08,1/11/2013 

I'm on it, now. Thanks. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:06, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

==File:Lyra belacqua by aerie faerie-d4ydl2t.png Apart from the fact that this image is misnamed (on the HDM Wiki this character is called "Lyra Silvertongue" because that's what she's most often called in the series), and the fact that it doesn't really belong here (except possibly as a user-page image — the uploader is called "Lyra888"), this image is a clear copyright violation; a watermark in the middle shows that it was copied from Deviant Art, so unless it was copied from the uploader's own Deviant Art account (and there's no evidence of this), the uploader had no right to copy it here. On this basis, I've already deleted this image from the HDM Wiki (where, even if there's no copyright violation, it doesn't belong because of the "no fanon" policy there). — RobertATfm (talk) 21:36, February 25, 2013 (UTC)
