Re: Editing help
Hi there! No problem on questions-- us admins are here to try to help out. Regarding the question, I'd say that like with a lot of things, to some degree it's a matter of practice. Fortunately, we do have a place where you can test things out, and it's called the sandbox. You can do anything there, even copy over an entire article if you want and play around with trying out various editing features. Then, when you think you're ready, go ahead and try making an edit to an article. You can use the preview feature to see if it's going to work, and if there's still a problem afterwards, you can always go into the history and undo. If you haven't read over the policies yet, though, they're definitely worth a look. A lot of the stuff is pretty basic, but we can be a bit strict when comes to things like writing an encyclopedic tone and making sure you are accurate when it comes to canon facts. One other thing-- if you do need some more help in terms of instructions, there is Help:Editing and it has some good guidelines there. ProfessorTofty (talk) 04:00, May 1, 2013 (UTC)
- Sorry, but as much as I'd like to say yes, I really don't think so, regarding "Harry Potter in 99 Seconds." The thing is, we aren't really a fan wiki, so coverage of fan-works is generally limited to those that have received special media attention or are otherwise in some way especially notable. While this has received a fair number of views, so have a number of other Harry Potter fan-creations, so unless there's something else about it that would merit notice, I'm afraid it doesn't qualify for an article.

Re: Request for Admin status
Admin status is generally only granted to those who have a long history of strong positive edits, at least a year or more. If your interest is in combating vandalism, you can request the right of rollback through requests for permissions, though this is also usually only done with an established history. So if you are interested in this, I would recommend building up a history of editing and fighting vandalism first, and then you would likely be granted it.
