Re: Scholastic site

I think we normally consider it full canon, but can you give me an example of something you have in mind? (BTW, you may want to consider another archive; this page is getting rather long again.) ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:37, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

That sounds like great info, absolutely! Could you send me a link to where it says all that? Just one to the bit about the vampires will be fine, I can find my way to the rest from there. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:43, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
"Door-unlocking spell" isn't capitalised. Haven't checked the other yet, but the words need to be capitalised for it not to be conjecture. The vampire stuff is still fine, though. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:49, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
If Scholastic's site is the only official reference for that naming, I'd say, yes, we should go back to Rennervate. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:53, February 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, there may be some mistakes, but I think we can still safely consider the general info canon. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:02, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations!

Merlin Gold Order of Merlin (First Class)
The Order of Merlin is awarded to you by ProfessorTofty for having over three-thousand edits on the Harry Potter Wiki.

You were sorta inching toward it, but you're finally there. Nice job! ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:48, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

Hey, congrats. You got it. Now there's only one left ;-) (for 10.000 edits huhuhuh) !!! XDDD  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 12:10, February 7, 2013 (UTC)

I will add sources from now on. Sorry if I have not before.

Sincerely, Ethan.

Re: Renaming

If there seems to be strong support, then I'll see about renaming. If there's only one or no response, then I would prefer to leave it as no consensus. If you have an opinion on any of them, however, you might want to weigh in as well. ProfessorTofty (talk) 03:09, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, there! I was thinking if I could ask you to give a look at the "Did You Know...?" nominations page, so that we can feature some new ones (quite frankly, the ones we have on the Main Page haven't changed in ages!) --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:50, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Fraction

When in editing mode, there's a little toolbar with thinks like "bold", "italic", "internal link" or "redirect". The right-most button of that bar is a plus sign saying "more". When you click it, a box saying "Wikitext shortcuts" will open with some Wiki markup and Symbols. The only fractions available are the following: ½ ⅓ ⅔ ¼ ¾ ⅛ ⅜ ⅝ ⅞. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:18, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

RE: OoU

Thanks for the tip buddy.  I'll try be sure to correct that. Catch ya later!belacreteet (talk) 23:38, February 10, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Limited Edition/Picture

I know, I know, that's me dressed to the nines! :)

Anyway, I do not know what may be the problem -- I downloaded the file alright, and had no problem in seeing the pictures. Try to download it again, it might've been just an error. You never know! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:14, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

I have no idea of what's happening, and do not know who might help you; as I said, it worked alright for me. Sorry I can't be any more helpful. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:24, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I had the same issue when I tried downloading it in Firefox. The problem is that it only downloads a portion of the file and then for some reason the download gets interrupted. When I tried downloading in Internet Explorer instead, I had the same problem, but unlike Firefox, Internet Explorer seems to be capable of recognizing the correct file-size from the start. So if it says that the download was interrupted, you can click to resume. So if you were downloading in Firefox, try downloading in Internet Explorer instead. That may just sort the issue. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:00, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
Well, exactly, that's what happened to me too. What happened is that you're not getting the whole file. If you check the file-size of what you downloaded, I think you'll find it doesn't match the file sizes listed in that post. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:09, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
You're welcome. Just keep an eye on the download-- if you have my experience, it's still going to be interrupted in Internet Explorer, but the trick is to just check in on it every couple of minutes or so and if it says that it was interrupted, hit resume. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:13, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
One of my downloads just failed, even in Internet Explorer. I'm trying a different file right now. Anyway, I still have a few ideas on how to get around this problem, so I'll keep you posted. If push comes to shove, I may just take my laptop into the library where I work tomorrow and see if I can manage the download there. They have super-fast download speeds, so I may be able to get it before I get cut off, and if I can do that, then I could re-post it somewhere that would be a bit more reliable. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:28, February 12, 2013 (UTC)
No, I still couldn't get it. The ones I've been able to successfully download so far are Environments Envisaged, Harry Potter Page to Screen, The Creative Shop Companion, The Paintings of Hogwarts & Wizard Wear and Muggle Attire. I'm going to try the others again tomorrow at the library and see if that does the trick. If not, I still have a couple of other ideas. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:27, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Face-Book

Nice detective work, that's all I am saying. ;) If you don't mind, I'll remove that link from my talk page. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:42, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

No worries about the link. Normally, I tend not to add anyone I haven't personally met, but I see no harm in it, if it's just this once. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:55, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Lockhart and Wikia Stars

Lockhart is the one who sponsored the big Valentine's Day event in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. He decorated the Great Hall and sponsored the idea of the Dwarf-delivered Valentines. Hence, I thought it would be funny, in conjunction with Valentine's Day, to make the homepage into the "Gilderoy Lockhart Wiki." And the remainder of the decorations, as well as the "Sneaky Lockhart" overlay graphic, are courtesy of Seth Cooper. As for Wikia Stars, it's a new program Wikia is doing where they highlight certain users. I don't yet know all the details myself because it's very new, but they'll be asking me some questions for an interview, and it'll help with highlighting things related to the Harry Potter Wiki, such as the upcoming chat (which, by the way, has been featured on Wikia's entertainment hub.) ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:11, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, you can find it highlighted here. I actually finished my reading on it earlier today, so I'm good to go. But so long as you have it read before the chat, no worries, right? Like I said, it's probably better to have it somewhat fresh in your mind for the chat. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:19, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Pottermore and Valentine's

Many wikis, many Valentines. XDDD Have a nice Valentine, too, and thank you for the explanation. I was surprised about it when I saw that and I can't answer because I don't know how to do.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 21:43, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

Double posting

No problem, can happen, happened to me, too. Easy to read because you know the text already. :-)))))

Re: Valentine's

Thank you. Happy Valentine's Day to you too! ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:53, February 14, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Swott

Harry Potter Limited Edition has acknowledged other such typos (i.e. Quentin Trimble), so I'd say it's just another. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:54, February 17, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Inappropriacy

Gosh, what was that all about? I've deleted the blog, and if they persist I'm afraid I'll have to block them. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:49, February 18, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Mortality

No sweat man.  Just try change as little as possible next time.  I'm Belac Reteet, by the way.  Catch ya later!belacreteet (talk) 00:54, February 20, 2013 (UTC)

PS You wanna get back to that Sentient Horcrux debate?

Re: Chat

Ah well. Truth be told, the only people that showed up were me, Nick and a couple of Wikia staff. So even if you had been there, it wouldn't have been much of a chat. I was thinking, perhaps we could restructure it as a forum discussion? We could post the questions in a forum post and everyone could post their responses and then we could discuss it further if people wanted to. Sorry about your laptop, but good to hear it's fixed now. ProfessorTofty (talk) 01:56, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Susan Bones

In some cases, usually where the character disappears from the film series fairly early, we'll use pictures from the later video games as it's a more recent depiction of the character. (It's the same on Colin Creevey's page.) - Nick O'Demus 23:31, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

It's really more of a long-standing editing practice than actual policy. I remember there was some discussion about it a while back, and using the most recent depiction was the general consensus, but I don't think it was ever actually formalized. So if you feel strongly about it, you could start a discussion on the talk page about changing it. - Nick O'Demus 23:44, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Article profile pictuers from Pottermore

Are the pictuers used here from Pottermore for the article profile picture considered to be more caon that images from the films? And is it okay to change a Pottermore image back to one from the film? Professor Ambrius (talk) 21:59, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
