Nott/ Goyle naming

Mafalda, I'm bringing this here to answer since I didn't want to repeat myself on two article talk pages and you were the one who raised the point in the first place. Titling the article "Mr" is better than "Sr" in my opinion since Sr implies that he has the same name as his son. However, while his name is just given as Nott (example only, applies to all instance inc Goyle, Crabbe, etc) he is obviously a Mr Nott when addressed formally. Now, as for the article name - I understanding the reasoning behind the original move, and having Nott as a disambiguation page is useful since it now lists Mr Nott, Mrs Nott and Theodore Nott. However, at the same time, any links to Nott now point to the disambig page, and not the article itself. Therefore, I propose this - if we keep Nott at Mr Nott (for naming convention purposes, since we have a lot of Mr/Mrs articles already), and have Nott redirect to him, then create Nott (disambiguation) to serve as the disambig page. Any thoughts on this? If more people get interested in this, maybe we could shift this to a forum page? - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:45, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Forum is probably good because other people might have other opinions - thanks Cav Mafalda Hopkirk 16:23, 18 January 2008 (UTC)

Personal Attack

Exuse me but I did not attack you. nor was I remotely rude to you. I answeared your query and pointed out that there is a lot of work that needs to be done to this Wiki, and all these if you had a magic wand forums arent helping the productivity of the Wiki. - Vaysey Slytherin 19:14, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

I'm sorry but your opinion on what effect your attitude and phrasing had on me is moot. Mafalda Hopkirk 19:51, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
Im sorry if I offended you but as you directed me to the policy on "No Personal Attacks" I feel the need to point out that nothing I said clasifies as a personal attack according to policy. - Vaysey Slytherin 20:07, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I have zero interest in debating this with you. Mafalda Hopkirk 20:57, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I've just appologized to you and am trying to explain why I said what I did, now it's you that is being rude. - Vaysey Slytherin 21:02, 29 January 2008 (UTC)
I really don't think this conversation is helping anyone so please forgive & forget. There really is no reason to argue over something like this. Vaysey has already apologized, there really is no further need for discussion. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:31, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
I wasn't planning on continuing it. Mafalda Hopkirk 01:43, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

List of Spells

I think that the pronounciations are needed because some spells are pronounced differently to how I would pronounce them such as accio. I have always used the bottom one but as the top one is how it is pronounced in latin i have started using that one. Me_Potter_Fan 01:31, 1 February 2008 (UTC)


Annoy me? Things rarely annoy me. I enjoy the challenge. The Hag articles come about because I believe that every character deserves their own page, no matter how small. And since I created a few redlinks, I was bound to create the articles by my sense of completion. Plus I needed to fill the category :) The Beetle pincers article is a little trickier - I want to verify them firsthand just in case they aren't real, and I know they're not in the PS game (I have researched it a lot). Having the page stand out on the dead-end page list makes it easier to find. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:49, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree about characters deserving their own pages, i was just being lazy :p Beetle Pincers - I thought Marilyn collects those, in the game? Mafalda Hopkirk 13:52, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Not in the PS game. I think it's supposed to be in the PoA game but I'm not on that game yet so I can't confirm it yet. Still working through the multiple versions of the PS game. Check out User:Cavalier One/Workpad for the story so far. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:04, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
Confusing. I don't play any of the games so thus my ignorance. Mafalda Hopkirk 14:12, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
It is confusing, but once I start, there's no going back. It's my nature as an inclusionist, something I picked up from being a Star Wars fan all these years. The archivist in me wants to record everything. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:26, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Good work!

Cavalier One has awarded you a Prefect Badge!
for excellent work in clearing the Orphaned Page list!


Well, you earned it. I kept looking at the Orphaned Pages and thinking "I'll try to remove some tomorrow". Then tomorrow came, and I thought the same thing. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 01:15, 9 February 2008 (UTC)

RE:Deletion tags

Ok thanks, will do. - Vaysey Gryffindor 16:17, 11 February 2008 (UTC)

Wanted pages

Hi, Mafalda. I saw your comment over on DJ's talk page regarding helping with the Wanted Pages. I'll be glad of the help once I start if you're interested. However, the Wanted List is not organised alphabetically, but by the number of links to the article that is wanted, so splitting the alphabet isn't possible. Also, some of the redlinks are possibly to articles that we'll never create (due to them being imported from Wikipedia and not being reformatted correctly). I did Alan Rickman's once and had to remove dozens of redlinks to real-world articles. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:46, 29 February 2008 (UTC)


Strange. Did you actually check your talk page physically? The Wikia team sent around a talk page message (should be at the top of your talk page) by bot (I assume) so it didn't register in the RC list. Failing that, trying clearing your cache and refreshing your browser (hold CTRL and refresh the page). - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 18:41, 9 March 2008 (UTC)


Thank you for the Prefect badge! It really made my morning. :) -Starstuff 20:26, 21 April 2008 (UTC)


Hello, Mafalda, have you userbox about content: "This user using Windows XP"? I'm asking, because I'd want have it on my userpage. And what you think about my english level?:> Karutalk 18:48, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Admin election

Hi, Mafalda. In light of the recent vandalism spree, we've decided it would be a good idea to increase the number of admins on this site, and, as one of our top contributors, your name has been thrown into the running. You can see the other candidates and cast votes at HPW:RFP. If you have any ideas or concerns, you are welcome to comment on the current Wizengamot thread regarding the election, Forum:Admin. Thanks! -Starstuff 02:37, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

You're welcome. Congratulations on the wedding! :) -Starstuff 10:23, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Deletiong Template

When you put the deletion template on a page please don't also blank the page. Just place it above the content (and substitute it: {{subst:delete}}). Thanks for clearing up the broken redirects though. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:16, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
