Speedstinger011, or underage user?

If the statement on his userpage is anything to go on, this guy is less than the minimum age to create an account here, and his edits are not inconsistent with it. It's probably none of my business, and he's one of the quieter users around, but, considering the fuss I've seen on other wikis about such matters, I wonder what the policies are here. Thanks, MinorStoop 15:40, January 1, 2014 (UTC)

Hi MinorStoop! I'm only a girl and ten years old but I use this account for editing pages and answering questions. Just for everyone to know out there. I love this WIKI page because it helps me learn more facts about the Harry Potter series if I'm confused. I'm also not allowed on the computer or iPad very often so I may be a quiet user too. Please don't call me an underage user (though I am) because I use this for the good. Please no one offense me (I've already been through much trouble getting robbed a couple of weeks ago :( ). Have an awesome day everyone! Hpotterf0r3v3r (talk) 01:51, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Why are you erasing the Bluebell Flames Incantation? I didnt just make it up I have a source.AvatarQuan (talk) 12:42, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

But I do infact have a source.AvatarQuan (talk) 12:44, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

I have provided my source for Bluebell Flames under Notes and Preferances. All those spells I fixed came from the same source.AvatarQuan (talk) 12:52, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

If you go to Google and type in Harry Potter Bluebell Flames Incantation and scroll down some you will find the exact site which will say Approved Spells Lists you will find Bluebell Flames's Incantation as well as the Bubble-Head Charm, the Glass to Sand Shield and all the other spells ive discovered.AvatarQuan (talk) 13:01, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

Vandal template

My apologies for the mixup. MinorStoop 18:09, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

Truth to tell, I know better than to sign a vandal template; the idea was to inform User Meeeeellkke about Lily Evans' page. I just wish I knew how I managed it sign it _twice_! My apologies again MinorStoop 18:29, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Nick, I know now why my signature went into the vandal template - you need to edit the whole talk page to add what you've forgotten; editing just the warning section redirects you to the template instead. MinorStoop 17:12, January 19, 2014 (UTC)

Fl.

Hey, Nick!

I'm French and I don't know the meaning of "fl.1980-1998" (for example). Can you explain it to me, please?

Your wand...

I am asking the following as a wandmaker, and intend no offense: Pecan wood? Since when was that cannon?  Dr. Galenos (talk) 15:36, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Ashley Brown (talk) 09:13, August 13, 2014 (UTC)Not sure if anyone has mentioned this to you, but the picture of Voldemort with a free hugs poster creeps me out. I thought it was creepy with Bellatrix on the hunt for Longbottoms.

Quidditch matches/audios

Oh yes, It would be great of you could help me creating one, and I could could also need some help adding more quidditch match articles once the infobox was created.

I also started a forum on that matter some months ago:

http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Forum:Quidditch_matches?t=20140809080743

I also had an idea of adding audio clips for those who aren´t familiar with pronounciations. (Like me in some cases) What do you think

Return to old behaviour pattern

The block on User:Jdogno7 recently expired, and he is once more replacing (incorrectly) 'and' with 'as well as' all over the place, despite endless requests not to do so. {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 23:24, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

He has also deleted a discussion thread from his talk page; I thought that was against this wiki's policies? (Except of course to move the discussion to an archive page.) I undid the deletion, but he redid it. — RobertATfm (talk) 23:47, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

Hi

Sorry but I want to know if you guys have an article on this person? Sources say she is Pansy Parkinson. She is from the first Harry Potter film. Whats the character's and actresse's name? http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/pansy-parkinson/images/22405320/title/pansy-parkinson-photo

Vandalisation/language

Hello, Nick! I just wanted to take a small amount of time to report someone who is vandalising images (the file is Dhharryroomhighreso.jpg). I reverted it two times, but Mike Rcscft keeps reverting it back and using bad language in the comment. I just wanted to be helpful by reporting him and the image replacement. Thank you for your time, Professor Nerdy (Owl Post) (Contrib's) 23:00, November 23, 2014 (UTC)

Vandalisation (again)

Hello, Nick! I'm sorry for bothering you again, but I wanted to report two other users. One is Mary Daniels, who uploaded that strange ceiling fan again on dhharryroomhighreso.jpg. Another is SalineSolutionPromo, who completely messed up the Harry Potter article. Once again, thanks for your time, and have a great day! Professor Nerdy (Owl Post) (Contrib's) 06:53, November 26, 2014 (UTC)

Morag MacDougal

I agree with you, it is never confirmed that Morag is a Ravenclaw... however it is implied that she is the same character as Isobel. I want say: if she had not been the same character as Isobel, would Gary Thomas be Dean Thomas? Would Trevor Boot be Terry Boot? Would Madhara and Mati Patel be Parvati and Padma Patil?

I think that we should at least write in Morag's house: Ravenclaw (most likely) or Ravenclaw (possible).

Otherwise shouldn't Gary Thomas, Trevor Boot, Mati and Madhara considered deleted students, such as Isobel???

GianG (talk) 17:45, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

Also, Fay Dunbar and her friend shouldn't be put as official canon. These two characters only appeared in the films and in the video games. The name Fay Dunbar was revealed in the video games and I think the video games shouldn't be used as canon.

I think this because video games are not so accurate and some informations contradict books' and films' informations.

About Fay, it was stated that Fay got a OWL in Potion, but this is false, because in the sixth book, Harry, Ron and Hermione were the only Gryffindor; it was also stated Fay's friend frequented Arithmancy, but she later draw out. But didn't Hermione say she was the only Gryffindor in Arithmancy class?

Also, in the video games the order of points in the second year (for the House Cup) was:

  • Gryffindor
  • Slytherin
  • Hufflepuff
  • Ravenclaw

But we know from the film that the actual order is:

  • Gryffindor
  • Ravenclaw
  • Slytherin
  • Hufflepuff

Shouldn't we say this information can't be considered canon? GianG (talk) 20:53, December 10, 2014 (UTC)

New article layout prototype

Hello! I thought I would ask your opinion, since I was contacted by Wiki to know how our wiki feels about their new proposed article layout. There are already two example communities you can check out, American Horror Story Wiki and TARDIS Data Core; a live test of the new article prototype design (changes are confined to article pages, for comparison).

I would like to tell Wikia what we (admins) think, since they tell me they are hoping to get more example communities before the holidays start (Dec 24th). They are looking for any kind of feedback, so it would be great to hear any input from you. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:54, December 19, 2014 (UTC)

Unidentified Gryffindor girl (V) and Unidentified Hufflepuff girl (I)

The Unidentified Gryffindor girl (V) 's page should be deleted. "Siobhan Ellen Williams is the actress who plays the unidentified Hufflepuff girl in both the films Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire andHarry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but she also plays another character who is a Gryffindor student in Order of the Phoenix. Since both her Hufflepuff and Gryffindor characters appear in the same film, it should be assumed that they are twin sisters as both are played by the same actress yet contradict with their houses in the SAME film. Just like Padma and Parvati are identical twin sisters but in different houses, they are too. It is probably a costume/casting error, but since it has been noted it should be explained."

I'd like to dispute this. Since it is clear that this is an error, the page of the Gryffindor student should be deleted (actually, there aren't any pictures that confirm she ever existed). There are many characters whose house was "changed" at some point of the books, but this doesn't mean they had twin brothers/sisters (example: Leanne was seen both in Hufflepuff and Gryffindor in the sixth movie, but this doesn't mean she had a Gryffindor sixter twin).

Vandal

Hi, the troll who uploaded those photos (and stole my Wikipedia username and Mike Rosoft's, and has already created a Wikipedia account under this name) is really David Beals, whose sockpuppet investigation page can be seen here. Dunno what y'all's policies are here, but I'd recommend blocking on site anyone who posts anything about ceiling fans, Dave & Buster's, or QR codes (since they're going to be links to pics or vids of ceiling fans).

Hi there!

Wikia's Y.A. Society (the home for Young Adult books) created an exclusive Y.A. footer for our top Young Adult book communities. Would you consider adding the footer to your wiki? Your community might already have the Book Wiki template, but this new footer can replace it because it links to it at the bottom. You can add the new footer by adding the code {{YABookWikis}}.

Let me know if you have ANY questions or concerns. Thanks!

Best,

Hey man, thanks for the warm welcome, also thanks for the help on the Tapestry Corridor page. I was a wee bit confused about the editing at first but got the hang of it pretty quickly, hope I did alright. I found it pretty weird nobody posted about seeing the corridor in The Prisoner of Azkaban and felt it my duty to inform people. :) 

Also, love this place, I only had made this account today and have just lurked for many of months, as I use this place for a reference in building my Minecraft Hogwarts. It's come to be tremendous help! Anyway, to stray away from dragging this on, I'll say again thanks for the warm welcome, I'll be sure to stick around and edit anything I see out of the ordinary.

I made a post in the Tapestry Corridor page, adding the instance it was used in the Prisoner of Azkaban film during Harry's night visit to find Peter Pettigrew on the Marauder's Map. For some reason it was removed, and I'm not too sure why. Looking for clarification as to why?

Heads up notice

I noticed during some of Patricier21's edits on the film pages it seems to be deleting a good portion of the bottom part of it destroying, the reference table, categories, template, External links, and language links. This originally started back a while ago with both Prisoner of Azkaban and Goblet of Fire film pages, but recently it happened to Goblet of Fire again to which I had to clean up again. Whether this is intentional or not is up to debate as I have seen a similar issue occur with category links on some of the pages at the Fullmetal Alchemist wiki, but I would like for this not to happen again which I why I am contacting you on this. -Adv193 (talk) 20:10, May 3, 2015 (UTC)

New Infobox Feature!

[I originally reached out to another admin but didn't get a response, so I'm reaching out to you instead of spamming over there :)]

Hi there! I’m Andrew, one of the community managers at Wikia. If you don’t know me, here’s my CC profile. I like baseball, laying on the beach with no plans or goals for the day, and climbing things.

We have a new beta project out, and since it's going to be critical to Wikia's future, we're asking for your help.

We want to partner with your community (and a couple others) and collaborate on a redesign of your existing infoboxes. It’s not a small task, but it’s one that we think we can get done relatively quickly and efficiently. Our engineers - both here in San Francisco and in Poland - will get hands-on with your community and work with your team to redesign the infoboxes.

You can read more here in the forum (and head to the sandbox to give it a whirl), but the tl:dr version: our current infobox structure translates very poorly to mobile experiences, and mobile is where Wikia’s growth lies. We came up with a solution that will take a bit of effort, but will pay significant dividends in the near future. What we're hoping is that we can use this community to test out its strengths and limitations while we get it from “beta” to “full feature”.

What you get out of the deal:

  • Wikia engineers who will work directly with your community to update the code that underpins your infoboxes
  • Access to staff for feedback, and our promise that your ideas will be taken seriously
  • A head-start on this change and therefore a significant upgrade in your community’s visibility

What we get out of the deal:

  • Several fresh sets of eyes that can help us understand how this will be used by the average Wikian
  • A test community that will let us track how the new infobox structure is used by visitors and viewers
  • The opportunity to share this initiative’s successes (and failures, I’m sure!) with the wider Wikia community and show them that it’s a smart plan for our shared mobile future

Please talk this over with your admin team and let me know. I’m happy to answer any and all questions about this - please use my wall or just keep the conversation going here.

Bump, as promised! Did you take a gander at what we want to do? I can show you examples from other wikias - we're not trying to make any drastic changes to its look, we're just trying to increase the portability of the content.

Hi Nick O'Demus, I want to make you a question,

              I have a Harry Potter movie set and there, I have some cool stuff (example:deleted seens, things about the actors, behind the scenes, etc.) There are real stuff confirmated by the director.

             The thing is this; I made a page on this wiki about it, but you erased it and things like this happened me and that is  because they say the stuff is not  true. My question is: Whi did you  erased it? Not to offend  you but: Can you give me an explanation of why did you erased it?

Thank you,
