Please note that when editing articles on this wiki we use British spelling. For example, colour instead of color and recognise instead of recognize. Thanks, NimH 17:36, November 14, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for contributing to the Harry Potter Wiki! Please note that all in-universe articles on this wiki should be written completely in past tense (e.g. "Harry Potter was a wizard."). For further information please see the Harry Potter Wiki:Editing Policy, and if you have any further questions, feel free to ask. Thanks. --Emmy () 18:41, November 14, 2010 (UTC)


That's right-- we use all British spelling and syntax, since the Harry Potter series is originally from the UK. You can check out some examples and anything else you want to know about the writing style on the Wiki's Policy page. If you're ever unsure about any spelling, don't hesitate to ask. --Emmy () 18:52, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, and don't forget to use the four tildes (~~~~) to sign your messages on Talk pages, so people know who to respond to. Have fun editing. -Emmy () 18:59, November 14, 2010 (UTC)

Image uploads

Thank you for contributing image uploads to the Harry Potter Wiki. However, your recent upload was in breach of our image policy, and has since been corrected. In future, please be sure to fill out the information template that is provided on the upload page, in particular citing the source from which the image comes from, and adding categories. This is to help keep images organised and catalogued, and to provide clear sourcing for all uploads. Please be aware that images missing this information may be subject to deletion, and, in certain cases, uploading images after being asked to provide the correct information may lead to a block for the uploader. If you have any doubts or questions regarding this, please contact one of the administrators. Thank you for your cooperation.--Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 09:37, November 15, 2010 (UTC)

You are allowed to upload up to three non-HP images for specific use on your user page, as defined under our user policy. Any HP images you upload need to be used within articles to comply with the fair use provision of image use that Wikia operates under. The Harry Potter Wiki is not a free image host. When uploading an image, you will see that there is a "Summary" box with text in it that looks like this:

==Summary== {{Information |attention= |description= |source= |author= |filespecs= |licensing= |other versions= |categories= }}

You should fill out the fields, especially the source the image is from (especially if it is a HP image) and the licensing. User images will fall under {{User image}}, and most HP uploads will fall under {{Screenshot}} or {{Fairuse}}. To see what was added in the case of the image you uploaded, see this revision. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 09:48, November 16, 2010 (UTC)
