[[Special:Contributions/217.130.12.148|217.130.12.148]] has created a lot of articles on minor characters today. All of them were in broken English, so I reckoned 217 is not a native English speaker, because a lot of the words were in Spanish or seemed to be badly translated by Babelfish ("Quidditch Glass of the World" instead of "Quidditch World Cup"). But then I saw the past block notices on the user's talk page and I figured an admin should probably look this over. Regards, -[[User:Starstuff|Starstuff]] 01:19, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

He keeps changing the blood status of Harry's kids to "Three- Quarter Blood," even though there's no such term in canon. Can you protect those pages until he stops? --Cubs Fan2007 21:51, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Cavalier One,
   
== Re: Problem reports ==

Thanks for doing the edit to my user page. Just to let you know if you would like to talk to me please could you do so via the UK Transport Wiki as i am mainly active on there. Can you point me in the direction of an admin as i have an idea or two for the Main Page as i have some improvements that might be nice.
   
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]]. [[User:John Reaves|John Reaves]] [[User talk:John Reaves|(talk)]] 17:41, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

[[User:Gryff23|Gryff23]] has made a rather strong (and, in my assessment, completely unfounded) accusation regarding DarkJedi613 [[User_talk:DarkJedi613#Thanks_for_the_help|here]].

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?

== Screen Capture ==
   
== Re: Canon Policy ==

You had asked me about a program for screen captures. I actually realized the media player I use has a screen capture built into it. I use [http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ VLC Media Player]. You don't actually have to install it -- there's an option to just download a zip file containing the program. I would take some captures myself...but I don't actually own any of the movies. Then once its running you just do Video > Snapshot and it'll get saved in your Pictures folder ("My Pictures" in XP). -- [[User:DarkJedi613|DarkJedi613]] <sup>([[User_talk:DarkJedi613|Talk]])</sup> 18:12, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

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.

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. [[User:TomMarvoloRiddle1926|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. [[User:Mafalda Hopkirk|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.

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.

== Canonocity ==
  +
  +
Hey. We need to have a discussion about what is "canon" and what isn't. I'm having second thoughts about some of it. Currently I have two sources of listing of what the HPW lists as noncanon: [[Special:Whatlinkshere/Template:Noncanon|articles]] using {{tl|Noncanon}} and {{cl|Non-canonical characters}}. In my mind ALL of those should be canon of some sort. I think people are getting confused and thinking that if something is not in the books then it is '''not''' canon. This isn't true though. Everything is canon unless something directly conflicts it, and then its still should be noted and only that section is non-canon. Most of the articles marked as "Non-canon" are just things that appear in the films/games and not the books.
  +
  +
Unfortunately JKR hasn't given us what "canon" means (unlike in the Star Wars universe where canon has been defined by Lucasfilms), so we're kinda left to make it up. But '''we''' decided that canon would be every licensed source of information. I realize I'm kind of ranting...but I want to get this straightened out, maybe make it a project that I'll head. But I wanted to check my thoughts with you beforehand -- make sure I'm not going crazy. -- [[User:DarkJedi613|DarkJedi613]] <sup>([[User_talk:DarkJedi613|Talk]])</sup> 21:39, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

== New Monaco ==
  +

Wikia is changing monaco, trying to make it look more like monobook. Thus, the new monaco gets rid of the ad banner, and changes back to the old monobook logos. This completely eradicates our logo contest and the picture of Hogwarts at the top of the skin. Take a look at [[wikia:Wikia's_New_Style|this]]. It looks cool, but we will also have to make some changes. The main page will have to be redesigned to match the ad box.[[User:Matoro183|<font face="Comic Sans MS" color="gray">-</font><font face="Comic Sans MS" color="#1874CD">M</font><font face="Microsoft Sans Serif"><font color="#404040">a</font><font color="#1874CD">t</font><font color="#404040">o</font><font color="#1874CD">r</font></font><font color="#404040">o</font><font face="Tahoma" color="#404040">183</font>]] <font face="Arial" style="font-family:Arial;font-size:8;"><sup>[[User talk:Matoro183|<font face="Arial" color="#6596BF">(<font color="#404040">Talk</font>]]</font><font color="#6596BF">)</font></sup> 00:31, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

What would you say should take precedence. A full body shot promo, or a headshot that is from the movie, both from Half-Blood Prince?

Unfortunately it's not large enough to extract a headshot. I have been doing that though, with the Order of the Phoenix ones such as Lucius Malfoy and Sirius Black. In any case here's the image.

Hi, I am a user here who has recently become more active than before. I am an admin on another wiki and I know that a lot of time is spent welcoming users with the standard message. This is a much bigger wiki and not all of the users can be welcomed by one or two users the way it is on the Twilight Saga Wiki, where I usually work. I have noticed that there are a lot of users that have not been welcomed yet (obviously because of time constraints.) Would it be OK if I welcomed them using the standard greeting message? I wasn't sure if that was just a job for admins here, but I would be happy to help if my services are needed. Thanks.

It's been a while since I found it, but I'd like to report an act of vandalism.

== Alert. ==
  +
  +
Dear CavalierOne,
  +
  +
It has come to my attention, and the attention of an administrator, who has asked to remain confidential for the time being (due to threats of disclosure of private information to their family) that the administrator Matoro has come under the influence of the internet group "Anonymous". The administrator has been logged as the same IP address of a griefer under the name "Super Saiyan Canavi", a person posing as me.
  +
  +
We suspect upwards of seven people of Anonymous have become involved, as there were IPs tracked from several locations, two in the UK, several on the East coast of the US, a couple in the Middle East. This administrator involved banned this person on accords of griefing, but not a week later, Matoro unbanned this person, who revealed they were several people.
  +
  +
The griefing consisted of defacing my user page, confusing staff of the wiki, and creating general chaos. We were hoping that you might be able to do something about this very delicate situation, as a lot is at stake here, especially with concerns that the administrator's family will be told information that Matoro has somehow dug up.
  +
  +
Whether you choose to act or not is your own accord, but a corrupted administrator is a serious crime.
  +
  +
If you need proof, check the IP records of Super Saiyan Canavi and Matoro, and you'll see they're one in the same, unless he suspects even that and changes it somehow.
  +
  +
We're begging you to help here. The entire wiki's at stake.
  +
  +
But as I said, it's your decision.

This is an archived talk page for Cavalier One. Please do not edit or modify it.


Edits by User:217.130.12.148Edit

217.130.12.148 has created a lot of articles on minor characters today. All of them were in broken English, so I reckoned 217 is not a native English speaker, because a lot of the words were in Spanish or seemed to be badly translated by Babelfish ("Quidditch Glass of the World" instead of "Quidditch World Cup"). But then I saw the past block notices on the user's talk page and I figured an admin should probably look this over. Regards, -Starstuff 01:19, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Edits by HarrypotterroxsEdit

He keeps changing the blood status of Harry's kids to "Three- Quarter Blood," even though there's no such term in canon. Can you protect those pages until he stops? --Cubs Fan2007 21:51, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

Dont protect the pages just ban him, he is adding material which he knows is false Ive already warned him. He has also made two nonsense articles "Three-Quarter Blood", "Three- Quarter Blood". - KAJ Talk 21:58, 26 April 2008 (UTC)

User:Kentish121Edit

Hi Cavalier One,

Thanks for doing the edit to my user page. Just to let you know if you would like to talk to me please could you do so via the UK Transport Wiki as i am mainly active on there. Can you point me in the direction of an admin as i have an idea or two for the Main Page as i have some improvements that might be nice.

Kentish121@ UK Transport 14:01, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Hi Cavalier One,
Just to let you know i have done some pelimanary works but i will not be able to do some more stuff for a few weeks as i have a few bits to do on the w:c:uktransport wiki.

Re: Monaco Skin Edit

I like the logo we have now. (The open book) haha. But I'm up for changing it. The one on you posted is kinda funky that its so blue though. :-\. I'm done with classes (still have a term paper & finals...but I have some free time now) so I'll hopefully fix those few little "bugs" that I see. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:40, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

I like the idea of the spotlight. OK I have the bugs worked out of my skin (I think -- it'll be a work in progress). Should I put it up as the full Monaco and make it default? (On IRC at the moment...) PS you can check mien out at [[User:DarkJedi613/monaco.css]] -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:10, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good! I'll put it up in a few minutes. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:15, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
OK. Its up. We have to change some of the colors on the main page to match (I'd suggest just linking to the classes so it'll always get changed together if we change colors...) -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:27, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
About the whole making the main page match thing, it actually does look really good. Look at the Jimmy Fincher Wiki main page. It kinda makes it pop-Matoro183 (Talk - Jimmy Fincher talk) 00:42, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
Right, well mostly I just meant make the blue bars into the dark red. I don't think we should go too overboard with colors. A white background is never bad. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:29, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
First off, the main page looks awesome! Fits in beautifully now. As for changing the background color, I'm reluctant to do that, but if you really want to we could do a light gray. I think on the main page where it has a light blue background should become light gray maybe? Also, the blue links look a bit out of place? I'm not sure, what do you think? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:13, 3 May 2008 (UTC)

Userboxes Edit

Have you userbox: "This user using Windows XP"? I'm asking, because I want have this userbox on my userpage, or if you haven't this userbox - I'll do this userbox. And I am waiting for your answer. Karutalk 18:44, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

And - what you think about my english level? Karutalk 18:46, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

AGF concernEdit

Gryff23 has made a rather strong (and, in my assessment, completely unfounded) accusation regarding DarkJedi613 here. Do we have a policy akin to Wikipedia's AGF here on HP Wiki? -Starstuff 09:26, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Screen Capture Edit

You had asked me about a program for screen captures. I actually realized the media player I use has a screen capture built into it. I use VLC Media Player. You don't actually have to install it -- there's an option to just download a zip file containing the program. I would take some captures myself...but I don't actually own any of the movies. Then once its running you just do Video > Snapshot and it'll get saved in your Pictures folder ("My Pictures" in XP). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:12, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Page Errors when trying to Post new Forum disscussion Edit

Sorry to bother you, but everytime I try to add a topic in one of the Disscussion forums either The Leaky Cauldron or The Wizengamot, on the site it has come up to a page stating 'Page Error' or 'Bad Title'. I can not understand why this is... Have tried visiting the site at a later time to try a post and have still received the same message/s. I have been trying to add a new topic for about 3 weeks with still no succcess. I am able to add to disscusion groups already posted but cannot start a new one.... any ideas why this is? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hermione granger (talkcontribs).
I'm assuming that when you get the "Bad Title" error you're using an acceptable title? It could be a site error or possibly from your browser. I know for a fact Forum threads have been added in the last 3 weeks. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 04:18, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
No it is not because I have tried to post an unacceptable title. When I click on the button 'Add new topic' or ehatever it says a page comes up that says ~


Bad title

The requested page title was invalid, empty, or an incorrectly linked inter-language or inter-wiki title. It may contain one or more characters which cannot be used in titles.

Return to Main Page.


Dont know why this is... Have returned at a later time to post topic and same message appears so I dont think it is my internet connection. I used to be able to post disscussions.....??????

I have not even been able to type a topic in... the page comes up (as shown previously) before i can do anything...??????? 13:31, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
I have fixed the problem. Not sure exactly what was happening but I have now fixed it. Thanks for all your help anyway. Hermione granger 01:07, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

IRCEdit

I've tried (and failed) to get onto the IRC. Every time I click on it, I get the following error.

The webpage cannot be displayed 
  Most likely cause:
  Some content or files on this webpage require a program that you don't have installed. 
  What you can try: 
    Search online for a program you can use to view this web content.  
    Retype the address.  
    Go back to the previous page.

Do you know how to fix that? --Freakatone Talk

Look at Harry Potter Wiki:IRC and tell me what you think. We'll link to that in the site notice instead. (Originally at Wookieepedia. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:17, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Main Page Edit

I got some ideas about what we can do for the main page. I'll tell you on IRC some day. Also we really need to update the "DYK" sections more often and encourage people to do that. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:53, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Or we can we use a submission system for the DYK if you want to keep cascading protection. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:24, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Sitenotice is updated, I saw you're beginnings of the revamp of the CP. Uhh...yeah I made the IRC page policy too -- hope that's OK. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 17:00, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
Uhh...so I just found a page: Harry Potter News. Which seems to be different than our Template:News. I'm thinking the HP News one should get deleted and we only use the template? What do you think? I'll probably merge them all together into some sort of archive at some point. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 17:26, 30 May 2008 (UTC)
Looks awesome! Now to get people involved with it... Anyway, I moved Template:Main Page/Featured article to Template:Featured article. So now the only way to actaully mark an article as featured is Template:FA. I worked on making the coding on both the CP & MP squeaky clean, so...yeah. Catch ya on IRC. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:16, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Edits by Some muggle and AstrogliderEdit

They're vandalising the wiki like mad, and I can't revert everything fast enough. When you get this, it would be a big help if you could block them. I've given them both warnings to stop, yet they continue to do it. Thx. --Cubs Fan2007 01:28, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Could you tell me how to move my succession boxes up to the top of my user page? THanks Gryff23 02:03, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Policy Edit

See [[User:DarkJedi613/Edits]] and [[User:DarkJedi613/User]]. The first one is editing policies. We can expand it to include what is considered good edits and stuff maybe? The second one will be a user policy (which I'm pretty sure we don't have here), including what is expected of users as well as what can go on user pages, etc. They're no where near done. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:41, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Editing Policy is in the main space now. I'm gonna work on user policy soon. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:19, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Check [[User:DarkJedi613/User]] again. Its mostly done I think. Any comments? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:06, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Canonocity Edit

Hey. We need to have a discussion about what is "canon" and what isn't. I'm having second thoughts about some of it. Currently I have two sources of listing of what the HPW lists as noncanon: articles using {{Noncanon}} and Cat:Non-canonical characters. In my mind ALL of those should be canon of some sort. I think people are getting confused and thinking that if something is not in the books then it is not canon. This isn't true though. Everything is canon unless something directly conflicts it, and then its still should be noted and only that section is non-canon. Most of the articles marked as "Non-canon" are just things that appear in the films/games and not the books.

Unfortunately JKR hasn't given us what "canon" means (unlike in the Star Wars universe where canon has been defined by Lucasfilms), so we're kinda left to make it up. But we decided that canon would be every licensed source of information. I realize I'm kind of ranting...but I want to get this straightened out, maybe make it a project that I'll head. But I wanted to check my thoughts with you beforehand -- make sure I'm not going crazy. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:39, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Help! Edit

How do you change the color in your signature? User: Freakatone helped me, but I'm new here and I really don't get it. Also, how do you get an Infobox? Please help. :( --Ginny22 20:04, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

PrefectsEdit

hi, i just want to know, how do you become a prefect? and do other prefects give out prefect badges? Also, is it like a promotion, that gives you more access to the harry potter wiki? if you can give me an answer, that'd be much appreciated. Thanks.Skrox29 23:39, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Pages Edit

I'm sorry to bother you, but you seem to be very good at this. I made the silly mistake of making a page that already exists without relising. I tried to delete it but I didn't know how to delete the page. The page is 'half breed'. Do you know how to? Cheers. Palmala

Thanks very much, I will bare in mind in future. Palmala 4 June2008, 16:21

WikiProject questionEdit

I was wondering what your idea was regarding the badge you plan to give out as part of Project Scarhead. My idea for the badge I plan to give out to members of Project Greasy Git is something along the lines of a custom infobox. If your idea is significantly different from mine, it would be handy to know, so that I can adapt my plans to be more in line with yours. Thanks! -Starstuff 10:57, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

I hope that you don't mind if I borrow some of the ideas you're using for organizing Project Scarhead. Is there any difference in the process used to create a tempate in userpace? -Starstuff 11:22, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
Just a thought...would it make more sense to have the project page under the project? I know it gets long but something like "Harry Potter Wiki:Harry Potter Wiki Projects/Project Scarhead/Draft" instead of on a user page? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:50, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

New Monaco Edit

Wikia is changing monaco, trying to make it look more like monobook. Thus, the new monaco gets rid of the ad banner, and changes back to the old monobook logos. This completely eradicates our logo contest and the picture of Hogwarts at the top of the skin. Take a look at this. It looks cool, but we will also have to make some changes. The main page will have to be redesigned to match the ad box.-Matoro183 (Talk) 00:31, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Uhh...well what are our thoughts about this? I don't think we'd have anywhere else to go, and we can't change the default skin then. Any ideas? Personally I need to see it before I can tell how much I hate it. Hopefully it won't go through. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:11, 7 June 2008 (UTC)
Not sure you've been following this. I was thinking about writing a reply but was thinking it might be good to write one from the Wiki in general? Any thoughts. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:59, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Edits Edit

How do I know how many edits I've made and the percent of my edits? --Ginny22 17:17, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello, can you see me as an admin in future? Karutalk 13:56, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

I don't really know how this stuff works yet so I just wanted to thank you for revising those pages I made. I only know how to put the information on the pages. You are really smart to know where I got that information from. Thanks again! Harrypotterfreak 22:21, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

Hi, I just signed up for project Scarhead. I was wondering do we just edit the page in general until it's good enough to go on? I was also thinking about working on the possesions and relationships sections mainly, is that okay? Cheers Palmala 15 June 11:13

Thanks 19 June 19:35

Many thanks Edit

Hello Cavalier One - I very want say as I'm happy, because you're good admin and many thanks for your contributions to English Harry Potter Wiki - I think that your contributions for Harry Potter Wiki are very hard to value and you have invaluable contributions. And if you'd like - you can register on PL-HPW where I'm administrator. Karutalk 16:14, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Main Page Edit

Was forced to put up new main page. If you feel any changes are necessary go ahead and make them...also please submit some ideas for more quotes for the week. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:07, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

It might look kinda cool if 'Welcome to the Harry Potter Wiki' was in the hp font with a red background. Could you make an image like that? I'd do it but I don't know what font size you used.--Matoro183 (Talk) 21:44, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Muriel's surname Edit

Hello, I have a one question for you, so: on Polish HPW we have got conflict about aunt Muriel's surname - Fattrice‎ think that Muriel surname is Prewett, but I don't believe in it, because as Rowling - Gideon and Fabian has been killed by Voldemort, and I don't believe that Muriel surname is Weasley. So, what you think - what's her surname? I'm asking because I've not already know..Regards and I'm waiting for your answer and for me it's very important really.. Karutalk 12:37, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Cavalier One: Many thanks for it. If you want, you can see talk page about Muriel's surname (only in polish, but if you want I can translate it for you). Karutalk 12:51, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Help!Edit

Hey Cavalier! I've found proof that the Merope Gaunt, Tom Riddle, Sr., Hepzibah Smith and Hokey are indeed included in the film of Half-Blood Prince, but I'm having trouble getting the sources into the document. Can you help me get them in? The characters are mentioned in an article discussing characters in the film.

Merope Gaunt Riddle: http://www.snitchseeker.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=447&pos=22
Tom Riddle, Sr.: http://www.snitchseeker.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=447&pos=23
Hepzibah Smith: http://www.snitchseeker.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=447&pos=24
Hokey: http://www.snitchseeker.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=447&pos=21

Can you help me integrate these sources into the film's page or tell me how to do it? Thanks! Hero of Time 87 17:54, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Quirell's name Edit

Hello, Cavalier One, few days ago I asked you about Muriel's surname. Do you know - what's Quirell name? I read sometimes, that Quirell's name is Slatero, but..I don't believie in it, and after my positives with talk to you I'm asking just you, because I think that you have big knowledge about HP series. Karutalk 13:22, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Why? Edit

Why do you deleted the Order of the Faun's article?

Only that :P

Hey. How's it going? Just saw you edited so...you're still alive. Anyway, hope its going OK and just wanted to say hi. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:44, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Not too much to get up to speed on. Lots of images being added by a couple people and the vote User:Freakatone mentioned above. That's about it. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:12, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

HI! Edit

Hi Cavalier One. 96ken 14:11, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Snape's name Edit

Good Evening. I don't know where from Snape's second name - Tobias. Do you know where from Snape's second name? On HPW polish we have conflict about his second name, so I should know where from Snape's second name (In the end I'm administrator). Regards Karupixel 17:14, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Fenrir Greyback image Edit

Hi Cavalier One. I'm slightley confused as to why a small, dark, poor quality image that already appears in the article, is being used as the main image as opposed to high quality descriptive promotional headshot. If you could clarify this for me, that would be great. Cheers. Jayce Carver 16:05, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Ah, sorry. I thought it was a promotional photo from the gray backround. Should I ask the user who uploaded it where he got it from? So we can find out for sure. Jayce Carver 16:18, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

Images Edit

Few, It's been one hell of a productive afternoon. I've managed to upload a whole ton of images from the Half-Blood Prince, and a load of promotional headshots to use in the infoboxes. Check the images out in my sandbox and let me know what you think, cheers. User:Jayce Carver/Images. Jayce Carver Slytherincrest Talk 15:16, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

Congrats Edit

Really late congrats on becoming an admin at Wookieepedia -- never caught you on IRC to tell you. :( But still -- awesome. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:39, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Sandbox Edit

Hi Cavalier. Could you please delete my sandbox entitled Voldemort, cheers. Jayce Carver Slytherin banner Talk 14:15, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. Also, more Half-Blood prince images! A very crazy looking Bellatrix dueling someone in the Great Hall, and Snape and McGonagall examining the silver and opal necklace. Jayce Carver Slytherin banner Talk 14:22, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm fuming over it. Before I forget, I've made a sandbox with some potential color combinations for any new infoboxes we might make. I've put it on the forum if you want to take a look. Jayce Carver Slytherin banner Talk 14:29, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

What's best Edit

What would you say should take precedence. A full body shot promo, or a headshot that is from the movie, both from Half-Blood Prince? The reason I ask is that I've found a promotional still of Harry from HBP but it's a full body shot. Jayce Carver Slytherin banner Talk 11:24, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Unfortunately it's not large enough to extract a headshot. I have been doing that though, with the Order of the Phoenix ones such as Lucius Malfoy and Sirius Black. In any case here's the image. I aslo got screenshots from the trailer, including Snape, the Carrows and Belatrix.

New editor Edit

Good morning! I'd like to draw your attention to Forum:New wiki editor - it's news about a new feature we'd like to bring to your wiki. Thanks, Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 18:32, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

from You-Know-Who Edit

  • Thank you Cavelier One,

first is for maintaining this great harry potter site and for helping me to categorize my uploaded files.


  • I'm very sorry for my ignorance, please consider that i am new here.

And still exploring and studying How to use this site in a right way. - You-Know-Who --You-Know-Who 16:11, 22 December 2008 (UTC)


  • Hello Cavalier One,

i wanna ask, What will gonna happen if i click the mischief managed link?, we can see at the upper-right corner of the page. I'm thinking now that It is different from the Log Out link, and if i click the mischief managed link, My account will be Lost or Delete from the database.--You-Know-Who 11:11, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

    • Ow, Thank you very much for the quick reply! Have a nice day! --You-Know-Who 11:22, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

welcoming users? Edit

Hi, I am a user here who has recently become more active than before. I am an admin on another wiki and I know that a lot of time is spent welcoming users with the standard message. This is a much bigger wiki and not all of the users can be welcomed by one or two users the way it is on the Twilight Saga Wiki, where I usually work. I have noticed that there are a lot of users that have not been welcomed yet (obviously because of time constraints.) Would it be OK if I welcomed them using the standard greeting message? I wasn't sure if that was just a job for admins here, but I would be happy to help if my services are needed. Thanks. Iluvgracie129 23:30, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism Edit

May i know the types or kinds of vandalism that may possibly done here in HP wiki? I want to know because i read recently about the function of "Rollback" and honestly i want to have this feature or function because my real intention and why i joined here is to Help especially the admins although i know i haven't enough knowledge on building wiki sites/pages., and so maybe impossible for me to have it for now, because i am too young here. But if it's possible, may i have this "rollback" function? --You-Know-Who 22:46, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Another reason why i want to know the types or kinds of vandalism is because of maybe i did it too without the intention & because of my ignorance --You-Know-Who 12:33, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
Thank you very much Cavalier One! --You-Know-Who 12:47, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Ralph Nicholls Edit

Hey, Cav. I was looking at the deletion/protection logs, and I thought it would be a good idea to suggest protecting the Ralph Nicholls article from creation, too. It keeps getting re-created, and it's a pain in the ass to keep re-tagging it for deletion. --Cubs Fan2007 (Talk)


AdminEdit

Please may i be an Admin I will be good --Dumbledore08 14:57, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

You may prove that first, by contributing, editing articles/pages that become good in result. Me, i already made thousand edits & contribute many things here, (you can view those on my page by clicking here.) but i can't say that i am good enough to become a Harry Potter Wiki Administrator. --ÈnŔîčö (Send me an Owl) 16:00, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Locking my userpageEdit

Hi i would like to know how to lock my user page so that no-one can edit it only me could you let me know please cheers--Hogwarts09 13:10, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

vandalismEdit

It's been a while since I found it, but I'd like to report an act of vandalism. Whoever did it wasn't logged on, so it only appears as an IP address on the history, so I'm not sure how to warn he/she. Whoever it was, he/she messed up the relationships section for Ron and Ginny. The changes have been undone. I thought it best to find an admin and I realized that you seemed to have responded to most vandalism stuff on the report vandalism page. Anyway, here's the IP adress: 75.71.209.23 Thanks a lot. Quidditch Lover (My talk) (contributions) 05:14, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Alert. Edit

Dear CavalierOne,

It has come to my attention, and the attention of an administrator, who has asked to remain confidential for the time being (due to threats of disclosure of private information to their family) that the administrator Matoro has come under the influence of the internet group "Anonymous". The administrator has been logged as the same IP address of a griefer under the name "Super Saiyan Canavi", a person posing as me.

We suspect upwards of seven people of Anonymous have become involved, as there were IPs tracked from several locations, two in the UK, several on the East coast of the US, a couple in the Middle East. This administrator involved banned this person on accords of griefing, but not a week later, Matoro unbanned this person, who revealed they were several people.

The griefing consisted of defacing my user page, confusing staff of the wiki, and creating general chaos. We were hoping that you might be able to do something about this very delicate situation, as a lot is at stake here, especially with concerns that the administrator's family will be told information that Matoro has somehow dug up.

Whether you choose to act or not is your own accord, but a corrupted administrator is a serious crime.

If you need proof, check the IP records of Super Saiyan Canavi and Matoro, and you'll see they're one in the same, unless he suspects even that and changes it somehow.

We're begging you to help here. The entire wiki's at stake.

But as I said, it's your decision.

RequestEdit

Hey, Cav. Would you mind updating MediaWiki:Sitenotice to include a notice about the new House Points Game? There currently aren't a lot of players, so we need to get the word out, especially to potential Hufflepuffs. Thanks! Starstuff (Owl me!) 09:44, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Gryffindor UserEdit

Hi Cavalier One. I've noticed that you consider yourself a Gryffindor user and I was wondering if you would be interested in participating in the new House Points Game. Gryffindor users would be "competing" against users from other houses, receiving points for good editing work. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, and if you are interested, you can add your name to the list of participants under Gryffindor. Cheers. -- Hellabore

Also, if you join Gryffindor, you can now join our Quidditch team here: Quidditch Pitch. Thanks, and I hope you can join me on the team! --Margiechocoholic 07:42, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Vandalize on my Discussion-PageEdit

Hello Cavalier One, Can you possibly block this User:Jonah Pier Musto because he vandalizing my pages repeatedly, and it's quite irritating. You can see what he had done by viewing his contribution's list and it seems that is not only my pages he/she vandalizing. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest (Send me an Owl!) 03:32, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

Re: DEFAULTSORT templateEdit

I erased the DEFAULTSORT template because of the "Scamander family" category. If all Scamanders were alphabetized as "Scamander, X", all the Scamanders would be under the S section of the category. -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 07:52, 24 April 2009 (UTC)


Excuse meEdit

But why the bloody hell can't I use Template as my signature page? I have on numerous other sites without anyone complaining

Template:Polls Edit

Sorry about that, but I saw on this other wiki the template and I thought we could have it too. Regards, Madam Hooch 250px-Hogwarts coa (Which Broomstick)

Thanks Edit

Hi CavalierOne, thanks so much for fixing the heading on the Celestina Warbeck (Etymology) article. I had never done that before, so I was glad when you helped me. I was also just wondering if you were playing or going tho be playing in the House Points Game. If so what house are you in? I'm in Gryffindor and we need a Seeker for our Quidditch team. So if you want to play on Gryffindor, join the Quidditch team. Thanks again!--Timbira 23:08, 28 April 2009 (UTC)Timbira
