Hey there, ol' Voldy! The Harry Potter Wiki wishes you a very happy birthday as your poor, pathetic form molders in Limbo. And while you rot, we announce:
Harry Potter Wiki:Time-Turner - Tom Riddle
Read more >
Travel back in time to New Year's Eve of 2010 and view the Tom Riddle article as it appeared two years ago. At that time, most of the article that we have today was already in place, but since then, there have been some significant additions, including a new page-top quote, a signature image, more info for behind the scenes, a Media section courtesy of Wikia and an imagecat link. Take a look, and see how far we've come, and keep an eye out for the next Time-Turned article. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:26, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
So, it's a bit late, but for Christmas, the Harry Potter Wiki asked if you had any Harry Potter related items on your list for Christmas. Here's what you had to say:
- Yes - Wonderbook: Book of Spells - 11.55% (227 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter for Kinect - 3.87% (76 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Wizard's Collection - 12.72% (250 votes)
- Yes - Harry Potter Limited Edition - 3.76% (74 votes)
- Yes - Something else - 50.71% (997 votes)
- No - 17.4% (342 votes)
So, all in all, over 80% of our readers were hoping for at least something Harry Potter related for Christmas. But if they asked, did they receive? That's the subject of our next poll, so get in those votes, and in the next couple of weeks, we'll reveal just how many got at least some of what they wished for.

The Time-Turner takes you back in time, allowing you to easily view one of our pages as it appeared in the past, with a new past revision featured every so often.
We begin with a previous revision of Harry Potter. This revision, dated February 28, 2006, allows you to see exactly how our article for Harry Potter looked back when it was first chosen as a featured article. At the time, the page was only about 6 KB in size. Only some basic biography info, one picture and a family tree were present, and only info through the first four films and six books, as the rest hadn't been released yet. We've real…Read more >
Well, I'm back and rested from my trip to San Francisco. The trip was great - the travel there went smoothly and everything went well checking into the hotel. After getting situated in, I spent a good portion of the night sleeping and got up early the next day for the trip to Wikia headquarters.
It was a rainy morning, but I had my umbrella and I made it in without getting too wet. Things cleared up somewhat later in the day and it stopped raining.
At Wikia's headquarters, I was introduced to the tool that they use to create videos upon request. It's a neat program that has access to a lot of video, including all of the Harry Potter movies. Unfortunately, that particular service was acting rather flaky at the time (the fault of the third-par…Read more >
