ON the wiki about James Potter, it says he was a chaser.  It needs to be corrected.  He was actually a seeker. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Blu589 (talkcontribs).

Death Eaters

User:Jdogno7 is once again inflicting 'as well as' in numerous places where it doesn't belong. Please can you or one of the Admins have a word? Thanks, {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 23:56, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

I am just trying to understand what is User:Jiskran's problem with my most recent edits on the Death Eaters article page. It doesn't seem to come across as merely a grammar dispute as he has reverted other changes I made as well that aren't grammar related.

Cubs Fan, I freely admit my unfriendly reactions toward Mr. Jdogno7 and that they have gotten the best of me; I will not be surprised if you or any admin will decide otherwise for this reason.
I fail to understand why he behaves this way, whether for kicks or because he's unable to do otherwise, but it seems fairly clearly established that a month-long protection of the pages he's edited does not faze him, nor does a three-month block have any effect on him. In any case, this situation cannot continue any longer, so I'll recommend Jdogno7 to be blocked if not infinitely, at least a couple of years - he may perhaps find an other, hopefully quieter and less damaging, outlet for whatever motivations that make him go on.
He's not the only disruptive (though not as obnoxious) person I've met editing on a wiki, and they invariably wound up with a multi-year-to-infinite block.

No, I am not doing this for kicks. I am doing this because I have a differing opinion. I hope that is not a crime.

Ah, the age-old "everyone's entitled to their opinion" fallacy. The truth is that nobody is entitled to an opinion which they are not competent to hold, and your opinions as to what is "good grammar" (especially misusing "as well as" for "and") have proved to be this over and over again. — RobertATfm (talk) 23:01, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
"The truth is that nobody is entitled to an opinion which they are not competent to hold, and your opinions as to what is "good grammar" (especially misusing "as well as" for "and") have proved to be this over and over again.": Maybe you are not competent to hold your own opinion on this matter. Ever consider that? Jdogno7 (talk) 00:53, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
Once again, on the Death Eaters page, Jdogno7 has been using "as well as" instead of "and" in ways I find ungrammatical; in some cases either could fit, in which cases "and" is preferable as the simpler and clearer term, whilst in others "and" is the only term that fits. Since Jdogno7 cannot control this verbal/typographical tic of his, and since it's blighting the pages he edits, I too feel that another block is in order.
He has also been deleting (not just removing for archival) threads from his talk page. I thought that was forbidden by this wiki's policies? — RobertATfm (talk) 12:38, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
How is what I've done "ungrammatical"? In which cases would either fit? In which cases does and only fit?
Jdogno7 (talk) 22:32, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
As I explained above, one of the (many) ways in which "as well as" can be ungrammatical is that if either it or "and" would work, "and" is preferable as being the simpler and clearer form. And since you evidently cannot understand this even after having it explained to you at least twice (now three times), that just goes to prove that your grasp of grammar is woefully inadequate and that you are thus not competent to be a wiki editor. — RobertATfm (talk) 23:01, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
"And since you evidently cannot understand this even after having it explained to you at least twice (now three times), that just goes to prove that your grasp of grammar is woefully inadequate and that you are thus not competent to be a wiki editor.": I understand. I just disagree over the instances where both "and" or "as well as" would both work. Maybe your grasp of grammar is woefully inadequate and you are thus not competent to be a wiki editor. Did you ever consider that?
Jdogno7 (talk) 00:53, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
As an add-on, at least one edit I noticed resulted in the poorly phrased "as well as even". As mentioned above, in such an instant, "and" is much more preferable. Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 23:44, October 1, 2014 (UTC)
I removed them because I felt it was unfair that people should edit my talk page during a period when I could not myself. I would recommend that be a policy: When someone is banned even from editing their own talk page, no one else should either. It's only fair.
Jdogno7 (talk) 22:32, October 1, 2014 (UTC)

(indentation reset) Not only does Jdogno7 clearly not belong on wikis (he claims to "understand" the proper use of "as well as", but his persistent abuse of it says otherwise, and this can be seen from many comments (not just here) that this is not just my opinion alone), he is now resorting to ad hominem attacks. These are nearly always a sign that the one using them has lost the debate, knows he has, and is getting desperate. Case closed, I think. — RobertATfm (talk) 00:46, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

"Not only does Jdogno7 clearly not belong on wikis": I resent that statement. "(he claims to "understand" the proper use of "as well as", but his persistent abuse of it says otherwise, and this can be seen from many comments (not just here) that this is not just my opinion alone)": The majority are not always right about everything. "he is now resorting to ad hominem attacks": No. I am merely pointing out that you act with such certainty that you are right without giving a full explanation for your position. I always give an explanation for my edits as a rule. That way people know what my logic is based on.

Jdogno7 (talk) 01:07, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

"The majority are not always right about everything"; true enough (the belief that they are is the fallacy of Appeal To Popularity, aka Safety In Numbers), but there is such a thing as "balance of probability"; any number of people you care to name can very easily be wrong, but if all those people state one thing and one lone voice (what George Orwell sarcastically called a "majority of one") states the opposite, it is nearly always the case that the majority is right. Of course, Jdogno7 clearly believes (see the above reply of his) that he alone of all the editors on this wiki is right about his "grammatical" (ha ha) usages. — RobertATfm (talk) 05:13, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

"Of course, Jdogno7 clearly believes (see the above reply of his) that he alone of all the editors on this wiki is right about his "grammatical" (ha ha) usages.": Yes, I believe I am in the right. You believe the same about yourself I am highly certain. Not saying that makes either of us right or wrong, just that we hold different opinions. But what I am trying to ask, which is yet to be answered is: Besides Grammar, what was wrong with the recent edits I made on the Death Eaters article?

Jdogno7 (talk) 11:53, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

Hi

Sorry but I want to know if you guys have an article on this person? Sources say she is Pansy Parkinson. She is from the first Harry Potter film. Whats the character's and actresse's name?http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/pansy-parkinson/images/22405320/title/pansy-parkinson-photo

This vandal has been edit warring/vandalizing with user: MathiasTobias please contact wikia staff for IP ban.

Hi! The Pansy bit you undid is mostly certainly in-universe. All statements made by Rowling must be considered canon. If not, then that means Pottermore is not canon. Here are certain Rowling quotes on the issue: http://caloriecount.about.com/forums/health-support/everyone-read --Goblinfrog (talk) 21:52, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

New article layout prototype

Hello! I thought I would ask your opinion, since I was contacted by Wiki to know how our wiki feels about their new proposed article layout. There are already two example communities you can check out, American Horror Story Wiki and TARDIS Data Core; a live test of the new article prototype design (changes are confined to article pages, for comparison).

I would like to tell Wikia what we (admins) think, since they tell me they are hoping to get more example communities before the holidays start (Dec 24th). They are looking for any kind of feedback, so it would be great to hear any input from you. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:54, December 19, 2014 (UTC)


Unidentified Gryffindor girl (V) and Unidentified Hufflepuff girl (I)

The Unidentified Gryffindor girl (V)'s page should be deleted.

"Siobhan Ellen Williams is the actress who plays the unidentified Hufflepuff girl in both the films Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and [[[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film)|Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix]], but she also plays another character who is a Gryffindor student in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Since both her Hufflepuff and Gryffindor characters appear in the same film, it should be assumed that they are twin sisters as both are played by the same actress yet contradict with their houses in the SAME film. Just like Padma and Parvati are identical twin sisters but in different houses, they are too. It is probably a costume/casting error, but since it has been noted it should be explained."

Since it is clear that this is an error, the page of the Gryffindor student should be deleted (actually, there aren't any pictures that confirm she ever existed). There are many characters whose house was "changed" at some point of the movies, but this doesn't mean they had twin brothers/sisters (example: Leanne was seen with Hufflepuff ties and with Gryffindor ties in the sixth movie, but this doesn't mean she had a Gryffindor twin sister). GianG (talk) 10:26, December 31, 2014 (UTC)

Neville Longbottom

Hi, I made some edits on the Neville Longbottom page earlier today, and just got an email saying that you reversed all of them. I was wondering what was wrong with my edits. Did I use improper grammar? Were my facts wrong? Thanks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Tlawlor (talkcontribs).

Category "Individuals who knew about Horcruxes"

Hello, dear Cubs Fan2007!

Cancel edits user  C.Syde65.

And remove the category "Individuals who knew about Horcruxes" from the article Albus Dumbledore.

See the discussion.

Nick O'Demus too busy. He did not answer me. I look forward to your reply. You're an active admin.

Block CharlieMadduxForeverFan

Can you please block this user from trying to contact me on this wiki. They are a cross wiki troll and sock-puppet. You'll find evidence of his disruptive behaviour on the Sims wiki.

I've already reported this user to Seth Cooper, but since you're currently active, I was wondering if you could deal with this issue instead. -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 01:59, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Tom Riddle

Jdogno7 appears to have re-inserted a huge body of text previously excised from this page. Could you or another Admin please look it over and check its value? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 10:10, April 18, 2015 (UTC)

Block SimsContributor100

Hi

Please block C.Syde65 he is trolling cross wiki and has sock puppet accounts block him Infinely—The preceding unsigned comment was added by SimsWikiaBulider1234 (talkcontribs) 13:25, April 25, 2015 (UTC).

I think that the above is a false and malicious request, prompted by the fact that SimsWikiaBulider1234 has himself been trolling/spamming C.syde65's talk page, forcing him to revert the spam multiple times (as can clearly be seen from the page history). I agree with C.Syde65 that this behaviour is totally unacceptable and that it is thus SimsWikiaBulider1234 who needs to be blocked. — RobertATfm (talk) 15:17, April 25, 2015 (UTC)
@RobertATfm - You're absolutely right about that, and that was very well said. All this trolling of his has been going on for months, and now he wants to be forgiven? Come on. If he wanted people to forgive him for his behaviour, then why didn't he change his behaviour before he begged forgiveness? -- C.Syde (talk | contribs) 15:22, April 25, 2015 (UTC)

If it's alright with you, I'd like to change the protection back from full to semi. It's been 3 months already. - Nick O'Demus 00:02, May 2, 2015 (UTC)
