Harry Potter Wiki readers - ever wished you could travel back in time? Well, now you can with our new feature - Harry Potter Wiki: Time-Turner. 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 >
Well, my trip has begun and I am now on my way to Wikia's headquarters, where I shall discover the deepest secrets of Wikia. ... ... Okay, well, maybe not, but it should be a good time.
Currently I am in the Dallas Airport, waiting for the trip to San Francisco. Trip's been fine so far - flight to Dallas departed a bit later than scheduled, but then arrived earlier than scheduled, so I've got a bit of extra time.
I'll keep you updated here as the trip continues, so watch this spot. And if you have any questions or anything about Wikia (the headquarters), you can ask them here, and I'll see if maybe I can answer them.
Day 2 - Morning
I am in San Francisco - I am scheduled to arrive at Wikia's headquarters in about an hour. Trip was fine - flig…Read more >
Harry Potter fans - if you've been waiting for Wonderbook: Book of Spells, now is your chance. It's Black Friday, and there's not likely to be any better deals on this new and exciting Harry Potter video game title anytime soon. I just purchased the Wonderbook with PlayStation Move and Eye camera on Amazon, but you have choices, so let's break them down:
- PlayStation Move Bundle with PlayStation Eye camera on Amazon - You can find this here. The price is $49.99 and if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping in two business days (though it's noted that it "may take an additional 1-2 days to process") or if you don't have Prime, you have the option of free "Super Saver Shipping," but you may have to wait a while to get it.

Some exciting news - Wikia has offered me a free trip to their headquarters in California at the end of this month. I'll be spending a day there at their headquarters and while there, I'll be learning about and discussing the latest features for videos on Wikia. The travel expenses are entirely paid, so it's a pretty neat deal.
While I'm there, if there's any questions anyone wants me to ask, or anything they'd like to find out, just let me know. I'll try to represent the Harry Potter Wiki while I'm there, as well as my pet project, the Eternal Sonata Wiki. Really excited about the trip and this opportunity to learn more about Wikia!Read more >
