Dumbledore's Birthdate

There's simply no way his year of birth can be 1881 if the series is set in the 1990s. J.K. Rowling has confirmed over and over he is 150 and unless he did a lot of time-traveling in his life, it just doesn't fit. Argulor (talk) 01:35, January 12, 2016 (UTC)

Qoudpot Field Image

Hi, you recently removed my quodpot field image update. I do infact remember J.K rowling making a tweet about the field, and I am currently looking for it now. But in the mean time, I believe we should leave the image even though it wasn't illustrated by Rowling or her team, the field design its self is indeed canon.

Permissions request

Hi there! I recently posted a request for Content Moderator rights, but only Seth Cooper has posted yet. Just wondering if you may be able to wade into the discussion as well? Thanks! --Sajuuk 19:45, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

Portable infoboxes

Heya! Wikia has hand-coded new versions of your existing infoboxes so that they work on a wide range of portable devices. We'd like to go ahead and implement these changes, but of course we'd want your input before proceeding much further. Please stop by this forum thread and give your views. And if you know of any of your fellow Harry Potter community members who'd be interested in this changeover, please invite them along, too! Thanks! — CzechOut @fandom 08:41, March 2, 2016 (UTC)

Discussion on forums

Hey there Nick O'Demus! I'm sending this post out to a number of active contributors of the HPW. I'm looking to find out your opinions on this proposal, which could help to improve the community aspect of the HPW and bring in more editors to the wiki. Please leave your opinions on that topic when you get the chance. Thanks! --Sajuuk 15:08, March 24, 2016 (UTC)

It's a very friendly and social animal, so I do understand it. I like my dolphin, too. It's also friendly and social. :-)  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 21:16, September 22, 2016 (UTC)


I edited a page and the edit was removed. I then saw your message and read the acticles that were linked but I'm still confused about what I did wrong. If you could explaint it, that would be great.

Love the Harry Potter Wiki page and excited to be a part of it.

Thanks for getting back to me, I very much appreciate it. I now understand and apologise for the inconvenience. Hope all is well and have a great day :)

Hey... Can I ask you a question?...

Character infobox hierarchy

Hi there! I'm slightly confused as to which character infoboxes we should be using. For example, Albus Dumbledore is currently using Template:Order of the Phoenix individual infobox whereas Minerva McGonagall is currently using Template:Hogwarts staff individual infobox.

Obviously both are members of the Order of the Phoenix and both are Hogwarts staff members, so how do we determine which template to use? Is there a policy explaining which infoboxes take precedence?

Wouldn't it also be a lot more simple to use one infobox, say Template:Character, and have a parameter (such as {{{theme=Order}}} or {{{theme=Hogwarts staff}}}) and display different colours based on that? It would definitely cut down on maintenance work and allow one change to populate to all the infoboxes immediately, rather than working on each one individually.

Let me know, yeah?

Gallery policy?

When you have a chance, could you weigh in on this forum discussion? The image galleries are getting quite big on the FB related pages as every poster, promo still, and screenshot is being added to every character shown. Thanks! --Ironyak1 (talk) 03:10, October 14, 2016 (UTC)

Hey. These users created what appeared to be fanon, I linked them to the proper wiki. I hope this is okay. Zane T 69 (talk) 16:07, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Bot question

I haven't edited many pages outside the main namespace with the bot, but what you're asking seems doable. To be clear, you want to update the category from Category:The Wizengamot to Category: The Wizengamot archive for any topic whose last edit is more than 1 year ago? Let look into it a bit and I'll let you know. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:34, October 16, 2016 (UTC)

So I've looked at this closer and Category:The Wizengamot is locked off from the bot, so it can't remove it from the page (I was only able to add categories). When logged onto the site as the bot, I can't see this category in the editor either. It seems the account needs more permissions to remove this category from articles. If you would like to grant additional rights to User:Ironyak1-bot just for this update and then remove them right after let me know. (FYI there are 297 topics > 1 yr old) --Ironyak1 (talk) 02:45, October 17, 2016 (UTC)
