Portuguese Harry Potter Wiki

Hey Cavalier One, how are you?

In December of last year, I requested a partnership between Harry Potter Wiki and my own wiki (in Portuguese) Madame Pince, but I did not receive any answer. I know that the version in portuguese of Harry Potter Wiki is not updated, so I thought that it could be useful for both of us this agreement. My team includes 20 editors/translators and I believe that it is capable of any work. We can discuss a partnership or either a concession of material using. My contact e-mail: vitor@potterish.com

Thanks in advance.

Vitor Werle (Talk) 18:42, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your answer. I understand the situation. Nevertheless, I would like to ask your permition to translate the texts of Harry Potter Wiki for my own wiki giving the text credits for you. The Harry Potter Wiki's content is excelent and I wish that Brazilian fans could read it.

Vitor Werle (Talk) 17:17, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for respecting my rights. I have absolutely no objections to it and I consider myself fortunate that my work was considered at all for the Barnstar, let alone chosen. Alex Scamander 16:57, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Cool. I haven't the foggiest about any of the legal stuff. Just glad I could help.Alex Scamander 16:50, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Problem reports

It may have to do with Wikia's recent upgrade to MediaWiki 1.12. I was told that was the cause of the problem with [[Special:Giverollback]]. John Reaves (talk) 17:41, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

Italian Harry Potter Wiki

Hi, Cavalier One. I'm an user of wikia and I would to create the italian version of the Harry Potter Wiki. Could you give me some istructions to create it? (I'm a noob :)) Thanks, --K93 (talk)

Excuse-me, I didn't know that rule :( however I've discovered that Italian HP Wiki exsist later on I wrote the message. Sorry for my error --K93 (talk) 12:38, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Interwiki

I'm going to look into it -- it may be a few days though. I feel like its not possible, but I'm not positive. I'll search around. I'm moving back to school in a few days. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:39, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

I'd assume it's a problem with the bot. If it continues, we can block it. John Reaves (talk) 12:59, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

Subpages

Can you please tell me how you create subpages from the user pages like the ones you have. Me_Potter_Fan 10:38, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Me_Potter_Fan 10:46, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

RE: FA Noms

Will do. Thanks a lot. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 11:58, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Lavender

i have no idea if i'm doing this correctly... but i wanted to ask about the lavender brown page. i understand why you don't want the new actress's picture in there prematurely, but what about the cool quotation i put in, where ron's talking about how he hopes lavender dumps him? i think that quote gives a very good insight into lavender's role among the big 3 (harry, ron, and hermione). you disagree? or do you just dislike quotations? Huffleclaw 15:09, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Canon Policy

Hey, sorry I never got around to finishing it. I've been incredibly busy over the past few weeks. What I have is available at [[User:DarkJedi613/Canon]] but you have the general idea correct. Actually if you have any suggestion for that page that'd be helpful. I'm not sure if I explained myself correctly/clearly and if more is needed? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:12, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Right. I'm taking a lot of credits this semester. I've been trying to go on IRC as much as possible -- I am right now if you need something in particular. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:31, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Forum Discussion

Hey... I don't mean to put you in the position of a babysitter but i was wondering if you could check out the forum discussion on article title uniformity. The member is starting to freak me out a bit. He's said that he looked up my history on the wikia and says apparently i'm some kind of troublemaker. It's got a really creepy vibe and I just thought maybe you could take a gander. Mafalda Hopkirk 03:47, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I have no idea what kind of foolishness (I apologize for the term, but I call them as I see them) this is. I merely happened to view your talk page and saw you have had several similar disputes in the past that appear confrontational. Anyone can do that. That is nothing to become paranoid about or to go running for protection because I intend you no harm at all and never did. I even made my comments to you as polite as could be, so I feel this fear is unwarranted. I intend no harm to any user at all, we are all equal and should all have a voice in places like this and should be old enough and mature enough to be polite and civil to each other. Forgive me Mafalda, but perhaps if you communicated positively with users even when they present a valid point and don't back away because they happen to have a point to their argument, perhaps your relationships would be better with them and you would not feel afraid of other users. Just a small piece of advice from one friendly user to another. TomMarvoloRiddle1926 19:13, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm going to give you some advice as well. Please read the policy on hostile, passive aggressive, accusatory, and defaming remarks against other members. I do not appreciate any of the things you are asserting about me or condescendingly directing at me. Sputter in disbelief all you want but you have only just joined the wikia so I seems to me inappropriate to make suggestions to me on how my relationships with people can be bettered. I really do not care to take that kind of advice from someone who doesn't know me. You can brush it off by calling it "immature" but that doesn't change the effect your phrasing and verbage has on other people. How do you call it "running for protection" when the reality is you hammered your opinion into my talk page for long, drawn-out paragraphs when I repeatedly suggested you take it to the talk page, which you called me "rude and domineering" for doing, and then made similar statements on other pages. It seems senseless to say you were polite when clearly that is not the impression i have. The sense that I'm getting is that you are seeking me out on talk pages and writing your analysis of what kind of person I am. That is a hostile practice and I'm asking you to knock it off. Mafalda Hopkirk 19:32, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm afraid once more you are the one sounding rude Mafalda, and it is you that should take your own advice as well as my own. Of course you don't have to, but it's just a suggestion in good faith to help you communicate more effectively and positively with everyone. No, I may not know you in person, but anyone can get a mental idea of it just by looking at your correspondences with other users or contributions to the wiki. There's nothing wrong with that, anyone can do that. I have extended the hand of friendship to you, and yet you remain hostile toward even someone that's trying to help you out. And just because you've been on here longer than I have doesn't give you any special powers over any of the new members. I suggest it is you that needs to read that policy because the above statements you made are all the more evidence of your own hostility toward me. I would prefer to talk to you in a more positive way such as about how to make this wiki better. You have your beliefs on it, and I have mine. I have my points, you have yours. That's what the forums are for. But you cannot deny that it does not bode well for one's image or their relationships with other users when someone runs for the admiministrators over nothing at the drop of a hat. I am new to the wiki, and I have been looking to make friends with some of the users and happened to be reading your page because you were one of the first I communicated with. There's nothing wrong in that, so I think you have some issues you need to work out. When you have worked them out and can take yourself off the pedestal of thinking you should have special privileges over other members, then come back and talk to me because then maybe we can start working together to make the wiki better rather than a lot of pointless bickering due to a paranoid behavior.

Re: Another Bot Job

Its running right now. I don't know if I have time to finish it before class. If not I'll finish it after. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:37, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I also reran all the old "spelling" ones we had done (like Minister for Magic, etc.) So periodically is good, yeah. I noticed it right before I had to go to class. I updated the software for the bot and it doesn't seem to be doing it anymore. I'm running the bot right now to correct it. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:24, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
I think I got all of them. (At least all of the ones my bot made.) Tell me if you need anything else. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:23, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Thank you:)

Hello, thank you very much with grammar corect in Andrzej Polkowski article. Greets:)Karutalk 14:45, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem. I just hope I got it right. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 15:41, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Star Wars

I'm not sure if this would be the right place to talk about it, but I wanted to ask you. If it should be in the forums or not even on this wiki at all, by all means tell me and I won't post again on here about it. It's just that I don't meet many people where I come from that like Star Wars as much as I do. Therefore, I don't get to discuss my favorite movie saga with very many people but myself. So you're into Star Wars too it seems? Are you more into the movies or more into the novels and the EU? TomMarvoloRiddle1926 22:55, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Redirects

I hope i wasn't annoying with the redirects you undid. I was trying to help but i can see what you did was better. Mafalda Hopkirk 13:41, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

My images

Why do I not upload "inappropriate images"? I think, you don't know "inappropriate image", because..you not big knowlege this topic. That's was gagged women, and why gagged women is "inappropriate image"? Okuśnik 18:23, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Okuśnik block

Hello, Cavalier One. Okuśnik uploaded inappropriate File: [1] next I requested Okuśnik:

[2] in order to he will no upload inappropriate image. Okuśnik has got uploaded file in Okuśnik userpage:

[3] and I deleted inappropriate image with his userpage:

[4] Colud you block him for two weeks? He got four warnings and he has been blocked on Polish Harry Potter Wiki for trolling.. Best regards. Karutalk 19:06, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Cavalier One: Please:You no block me!troll Troll talk 19:13, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

Ech... Cavalier One: I'm blocked on always in polish Harry Potter Wiki. You no speak me and you no talk big in topic. On Commons this images no "inappropriate". IMO Karu is stupid. How do you think: Karu good speak on inappropiriate images? troll Troll talk 07:50, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Cavalier One: Please block Okuśnik on two weeks, because he's uploaded innapropiriate images and He got four warnings and he has been blocked on Polish for Trolling. I had more troubles with Okuśnik. Karutalk 12:26, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank you with answer and help. Cavalier One: Please block me on two days. Greets;). Karutalk 15:05, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks!

Thanks for welcoming me on my talk page. I have to say I'm glad to have stumbled across this Wiki this morning... it's doing a great job of distracting me from homework. I was wondering if you had any advice or suggestions; I'm not sure what to do around here, exactly. I keep hitting the random page button and making bold edits as I see fit. Just let me know what needs to be done and I'll do it to the best of my (sometimes limited) ability! (: Ashleyy {owl?} 18:38, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Where can I find a list of things that need to be done? I looked around for a bit (literally, just a few minutes, haha) but wasn't sure where to find a comprehensive list. Ashleyy {owl?} 19:46, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Policy

What system do you usually do when changing policy? Post about it in the forum or just do it or what? I'm gonna put that canon policy into effect soon since its all getting very confusing about what is and what isn't policy. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:13, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Will do soon. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:20, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
The Canon policy is live. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:13, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Prefect

THANK YOU!!!!! You are so sweet and thoughtful!!! Mafalda Hopkirk 20:42, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Stubs

Should books labeled as stubs have the {{Object-stub}} template, or should a new template be needed...?-Matoro183 (Talk) 02:18, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Prefect

Snoops619 has awarded you a Prefect Badge!
for the constant effort that is displayed in the management, development and overall maintenance of the Wikia.
- Well, you deserve it.

Templates

They seem to be from a bunch of templates that are used really only in one spot. I'll see what I can do about it. And I log in pretty much everyday -- I just don't have time to do much except check my watchlist, etc. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:31, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

That should do it. Gotta wait for the data to recache though. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)
I don't really have a problem with editing subpages or userpages, as long as we're only editing the link. Talk pages really should be fine too... -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:30, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Wanted

Is there no hope! No, jk, i'll just pick something and start. =) Mafalda Hopkirk 11:39, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Image CatgoriZation

Sounds good! I assume images can be categorized into more than one category? Who's the parent of Category:Images? Category:Harry Potter Wiki probaby? Tell me how I can help. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:28, 29 February 2008 (UTC)

Also I think we should have a Category:Image by license, which than has subcats for each license (most of which already exist and would just get moved). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:34, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good! Any images I see I'll start changing over. Should we also have an Category:Images needed to be catgorised or something? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:41, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
There could be -- I thought there was just one for Unused Files. There is: Special:Uncategorizedimages. You're right. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 13:59, 29 February 2008 (UTC)
I've started by going through Category:Screenshots and pulling some out -- do we even need that category afterwards? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:17, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Sorry about that -- my message above got messed up, check it out now. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:25, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
Right, but modifying a template is no big deal. We'll have to think about it. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:00, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Toa Retyk

Toa Retyk created a user page for user Joe, redirecting his user page to that page. What in the world is he doing, and is that allowed?-Matoro183 (Talk - Jimmy Fincher talk) 23:28, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism

Someone's been vandalizing the Ginny Weasley article, and I can't rollback it fast enough. Can you help me out to revert it back? - Cubs Fan2007 02:44, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Owl

Hey Cav, it keeps telling me i have an owl but its a message from weeks ago. Mafalda Hopkirk 12:10, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

FA Noms

Can you close up any remaining on Harry Potter Wiki:Featured articles nominations? I voted in one. Thanks. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:36, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Good job so far! Haha. I have been really busy and haven't had a chance to work on it at all. Hopefully soon. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 22:55, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

Reverts

Is the color coded family tree on the Weasley Family article a community-created tree, rather than directly from JKR? if so, that makes sense that you reverted my edits; that's just the tree I was going by on the Bilius article. - Cubs Fan2007 01:11, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I figured. And just as a head's up, I think it's on Bill's page, Bilius is listed as a paternal uncle; I think that should be changed, as well. - Cubs Fan2007 08:25, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

RE: Suggestion

You know. I never really thought about that, but you're right. We're supposed to be in-universe so no one is actually a "character" (a la Wookieepedia). I can do that easy with a bot once we know what needs to be changed. And yeah -- I've been ridiculously busy with school -- been coming on when I have a chance though. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 12:31, 1 April 2008 (UTC)

Sounds good. There are a few others in there though like "Azkaban convicts" and "Azkaban escapees", as well as "Dark Wizards". Would we just keep those there? Tell me what I can help with -- I don't want to conflict with your edits. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 12:42, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
That sounds like it'd be the least disruptive way to do it. I'd say I could use my bot to add like the gender categories...but we'd still have to sit here and do it by each character. Just something I thought of (I'm not sure this problem exists...) but are there other genders besides "Male" and "Female"? I think I'll start adding those to characters soon. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:13, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
P.S. I can delete categories (and it'll automatically remove them from everything in that category). So for something like Category:Characters we may want to just delete it (to remove it from all the random loose characters that are in there). I went through the A's and B's and added gender (of loose characters from that category...probably a bad way to do it :-\). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:04, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
Subpage is fine (or my talk page, I really don't care -- no one else uses my talk page ;)) Its gonne be really hard to get all by gender -- we're gonna have to go through like each subcategory and make sure we have all of them (since if they're in a sub then they're most likely not in a parent...) Work on it more soon. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:40, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Use Special:Allpages instead of going through categories. Scan the lists for names. I've completed M-Z so far. -Starstuff 01:44, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I know. That's what I started doing. I'm using a script to go through them, just to make it simplier for me (not necessarily faster haha). I'll probably finish A - C today? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:55, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
I should also note -- try to keep category names in alphabetical order. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:02, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
For the "family" categories (Potter family, House of Black, etc.) are we still organizing them by first name? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:17, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
In terms of the templates, yes I think we should (and I think I can do that w/ my bot so it'll change every page that includes it?) What category moves should I start doing with my bot then? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:35, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
I'm going to move French characters, should I move it to "French" or "French individuals"? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:37, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Arg, I had just done it to "French"! Moved though. Started Bulgarian. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:48, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
OK. I moved Character stubs and Non-canonical characters to Individuals so that I could run my script -- I'm not sure what we want to do with those ones though. Moving everyone in Characters to Wizards now. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:25, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Finished. Deleted Character category. Just cleaning up some junk left by the bot now. Note: there are a lot of articles that should probably be in the Wizards category that are currently not. I just moved Characters -> Wizards. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:01, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Yup! Mostly done. Gotta update the templates also. Any ideas for the Stubs category and Non-canon category? Also, do you ever sign onto IRC anymore? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 22:54, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Revert

Hello Cavalier One. On the benniging I'm sorry, because the day before yesterday my edition were..very stupid. And why did you revert my editions in Luna Lovegood? Information about Luna gagged, IMO is a curiosity from Did you know..? I'm waiting for your answer. And what you think about my English? Karutalk 22:42, 3 April 2008 (UTC)

Signature template

Is it okay if I use User:C Teng/Signature as a signature template? I'm not sure if they're allowed here. C Teng 23:20, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Barty Crouch Sr

Could you move Barty Crouch Sr over the redirect Barty Crouch, Sr.? It says only an admin can do it. --C Teng

Two vandalism on your userpage

Hello Cavalier, I must said you: On your userpage were two vandalisms and I musted reverted this vandalism on your userpage, and I think that you have to protect your userpage, because were two vandalisms. Regards Karutalk 08:16, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

For me reverted your userpage it was not problem. And my advice about protect your userpage from, because I'm an admin on Polish Harry Potter Wiki and I know what I must do, when page is vandalising. Karutalk 08:30, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Sorry

Sorry about editing that page... I guess i just forgot that it was your page and not the article itself. I apologize. --Freakatone 10:55, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

NPA violation

Would you please take a look at "File:Evolutionfairytale.gif"? The images is currently only used on the talk page of User:Aglaia, and, basically, it's an animated political cartoon that asserts that people who accept evolution as fact are silly. I find this message extremely hurtful, and, while I believe in free speech, I don't think a Harry Potter encyclopedia is the right venue for this kind of satire. It's divisive and unnecessary. Our No Personal Attacks policy is clear that "religious epithets" are out of line and I would include slighting other people's personal beliefs in this category. -Starstuff 23:26, 12 April 2008 (UTC)

I agree with Starstuff on the matter. --Freakatone 23:31, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Deleted due to your concerns. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 23:54, 12 April 2008 (UTC)
Thank you for responding to this matter. -Starstuff 18:08, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
