Fanon warning: Please stop. If you continue to add fanon to pages, you will be blocked from editing the Harry Potter Wiki.

Hey. No problem. If you feel like you would like to request for a position please use the Requests for permission page. Remember that usually only trusted users who have been involved in the community for some time are given positions. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:36, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

No, that is not my name. I have never been to your site. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 10:53, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Recent comment on DarkJedi613's page - formal warning

This is a formal warning concerning your recent comments on DarkJedi613's talk page. Accusations of that nature, whether intended as a purely interrogative statement or not, are not welcomed here, and can be considered to be a borderline personal attack. Personal attacks on any user are not tolerated on this wiki, and, if breached, can lead to a ban. Please read our NPA policy.

The tone of your edit, particularly your "I'll know if you're lying" comment, can be considered to be aggressive and threatening. I visited the website address you posted on DarkJedi613's talk page, and looked at your guestbook to find the comment in question and could not find one. It may be that you've deleted said comment, but you also have no evidence to back up your claim.

It is also an odd claim to make against an administrator who gave you information regarding the process of requesting User rights. It is also an odd statement from a User who wishes to attain the status of an admin, and, unfortunately, proves that you are not yet ready for the responsibility. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 17:48, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

Do you know the answer?

Hi Gryff23! Can Muggels cast a spell with a wand if they knew a spell? (That won't happen though).

Please respond. I'm Ginny22 by the way.

Thanks Gryff23!

Recent Vandalism

Both users have been banned. Thanks. You can see contributions here and here to revert them. Thanks for your help. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:50, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

With three or four editors working simultaneously, the Wiki should be patched up rather quickly. DarkJedi posted a reversion explanation on Balletbelle's user talk page. I'll just direct you to the explanation there to save time. It's quite simple. Thanks for your hard work! :) -Starstuff 02:22, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
Thank you Gryff23 for helping to combat the recent vandalism on the Harry Potter Wiki, through either your submission of a problem report or directly undoing vandalism you've helped us restore everything to working order. Thanks again! -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:39, 31 May 2008 (UTC)


I have noticed you have been editing your infobox every day to update the latest appearance section. If you type {{CURRENTMONTHNAME}} {{CURRENTDAY}}, {{CURRENTYEAR}} the current date will appear every day without you having to change it-Matoro183 (Talk) 21:32, 31 May 2008 (UTC)


Sounds good! Feel free to use the Requests page when you feel ready. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:29, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: How

I've experimented... and the best I can do is move it to the very top, above the infobox and everything. I'm not really all that good at the wiki markup stuff, though. DarkJedi, Cavalier One or Matoro should be able to help better than I can. -- Freakatone Talk 01:53, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Succession boxes are made to always appear below an infobox, it can not be made to appear next to it directly. I kinda hacked around it to get it to be. Its always good to establish a user page and describe yourself but don't forget to add content to the wiki as well! Right now 82.09% of your edits are User, User talk or Forum. Only 11.94% are on articles. There's much to improve here so don't forget to continue with that. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:01, 1 June 2008 (UTC)
There are a lot of stubs that need expanding. You could always use the "random page" link on the left. Soon the community portal will be redone w/ things that need doing. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 03:13, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

No problem

Hey, no prob. If you want to start a project, discuss it on the talk page first. Thanks. -- Freakatone Talk 20:48, 3 June 2008 (UTC)


I give you permission to do it. For the Name I want Ginny22, for Gender I want Female, Eye Clour: Brown, Hair Clour: Red, Born: June 6, Blood Status: Pure blood, Wand: 15" Phoenix Feather, Boggart: J.K. Rowling stops writing Harry Potter books (too late!), Patronous: Dragon, Animagus: Wolf, Occupation, seeker for Gryfindor, Behind the scenes: Portrayer: Me, First Appearance: March 5, 2008, Latest Appearance: June 20, 2008. Please use the Gyriffindor template. Also, please capitalize (do what I put)! Thanks so much! :) --{{substUser:Ginny22/sig}} 00:17, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


I did something! Can you fix it? Go to my User page. I don't know what happened! --{{substa:User:Ginny22/sig}} 01:12, 5 June 2008 (UTC)


Thanks so much! Was that you, or someone else who did the infobox? I think it was you. :) --{{substa:User:Ginny22/sig}} 01:18, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Project Scarhead


If they can do it, why not us?

The latest on Project Scarhead!
Welcome to Project Scarhead! Okay, firstly, thank you for signing up. We have a big job to do, but hopefully, with so many hands we can get the job done. Basically put, the Harry Potter article is our main article - he's the series lead and the main focus of the books. As such, he should also be our biggest and best article, the kind of article we're proud to show off on the main page and tell people we did it. We will be working on a subpage, located here: User:Cavalier One/Project Scarhead. This will serve as our workplace, and all members of Project Scarhead are authorised to edit it, and I urge you all to put it on your watchlist so you can track usage. I have already rearranged the article to conform with our standard layout guide. I am suggesting tackling the article in chronological order, working through each of the seven books in turn, stopping after each book is done and reviewing the work to date. However, let me know if you wish to work on a particular sections or book and you will be accomodated. Again, welcome to Project Scarhead!

Re:Two Things

To archive your talk page, create a user subpage (like mine is User_talk:Matoro183/archive), move your talk page's content to it, and add a link to the subpage on your now-blank talk page. Your all ready to go! Look at Template:Prefect to see what you need to do to get a prefect badge.-Matoro183 (Talk) 22:16, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

To create a subpage, create a link to Somepage/Whatever. So for your talk page it would be User talk:Gryff23/Archive 1 or something like that. Then just click the link and you can type on that page. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:37, 15 June 2008 (UTC)
