Skills Forum

Hey, I have been looking into the "Magical abilities and skills" sections of many of our articles, and I have found some serious problems with users going overboard, so I started a forum to see if we could standardize the rules and come up with some criteria to determine whether a character is an "Expert Duellist" or just a "Skilled Duellist." It can be found here. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:44, January 7, 2011 (UTC)

Comments, multiple accts

Wikia have been contacted regarding the matter since Kacie is not answering my emails. As for the multiple accounts ... well, I blocked Awesomeman222 for three months anyway due to his edits, so if they're the same account, I would block Webgenius for sock puppetry. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:07, January 11, 2011 (UTC)

wiki look

Hey, which look do you use? (monobook or new)? I had been using monobook, and I just switched it to the new look for a minute so I could see if it was back to normal Cause Raindrops said that the new look was messed up yesterday, and now it won't let me change back to monobook, keeps coming up with a script error..... --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 13:49, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

They were having technical issues yesterday too. It seems alright now, the only thing I hate about the new wiki look is the way the info boxes look, drives me nuts, I tend to jump back and forth depending on what I'm doing. I wish they would come out with something that combines the two looks, best of both worlds sorta thing, ya know......oh well. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 17:48, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Robert Pattinson

Hello. I edited Robert Pattinson's page this morning and when I got back on to his page to show my friend how I beefed it up, everything I put on his page was gone. And it show YOU were the very last person to edit it. So, I'm messaging to ask you, why did you delete what I put on Rob's page? As you can tell from my user name, I am I massave Twi-Hard. So I know every little thing about Robert Pattinson. I put a lot of great info on his page on this wikia AND Twilight Wikia. I know what I am talking about. I doubt you know as much about him as I do. So, again, why did you delete it? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Team-jacob girl (talkcontribs).

So, if I give credit to the Wikipedia, you would leave it on Rob's page? Like if at the end of his page, I put the link from Wikipedia it would be ok? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Team-jacob girl (talkcontribs).


Thanks! :-) I think the user was mad at me for reverting one of his edits. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 01:31, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

I know, these problem's are driving me nuts, I can't count how many times in the last two days I've gone to save an edit and it comes back with an error message, and for me it's been ping ponging back and forth between the two wikia looks all by itself, and earlier all of a sudden my signature had been blanked out. On the bright side I'm like 30 edits away from hitting the 10,000 edit mark (woohoo)! lol! --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 01:43, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

I'd be cool with it being left up, I can't imagine any time that an unreg'd user would need to edit my user page. Thanks! :-) Hey, do you subscribe to get email's not's on any of the pages? I noticed the last few days I haven't been getting emails on any of the pages i follow. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 14:47, January 13, 2011 (UTC)

Slytherin Quidditch Team

Dear Admins,

I don't know who is doing what and who is still active here so I am sending this to all of you. There are a few users, mainly BachLynn23 and Rodolphus that keep changing pages here with untrue facts. I have amended the Slytherin Quidditch Team page with the info that there are no female players, as Rowling states so a few times in her books and in several interviews, on the team. I also took out the spoof names in the list on the right hand side.

Two minutes later that Rodolphus changed it, I corrected it, the user changed it. It is not right that fans and those seeking correct information get mislead on here with names that were created in a fanfiction or the users own mind and may think it happened making a fool of themselves with other fans during discussions.

I have messaged the user and asked to please stop but they did not react and just amended it again. Even putting on some of the pages "Spoof only" but this has now been taken out by BachLynn23.

Maybe you can make sure the page is correct and then have it so that no one can edit it anymore, or do something about this? I am a Harry Potter expert and know every fact that is given us from the books and the great athors interviews therefore I don't really think it is nice to have false information and made up people on here.

I hope you can take care of this in one way or another as I won't continue editing as I am not in kindergarten or pre-school and most certainly those users appear to be as they re-edit true information with false and misleading information. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chaser85 (talkcontribs).

Okay. I sort of get it now. Sorry I was snappy in my first message and sorry I was a bother. It's not the same rules on this wikia as on Twilight Wikia.

User page problem

Hi, Nick! Perhaps you can help me. I didn't get an answer from Seth Cooper until now. What's wrong with Wiki? When I wanted to look at my "followed pages" with 45 articles in my user page with the "more"-button, there are only 15 to be seen. What has happened? I should say: I use MonoWiki. Harry granger 18:08, January 17, 2011 (UTC) Thanks for your answer. Now I know it is not a mistake that I did make. I hope they can solve their problems soon. I don't like the new look. I find him much more uncomfortable. But I "fear" they will not put it back. So I can only say: Good luck with new "NEW AND BETTER"! Harry granger 13:07, January 22, 2011 (UTC)

How do you do that?

Okay I was looking at other people's profiles and how do you get that little infobox thing and the This wizard is.... badge or whatever it is? Emo Russian Awesomeness 23:23, January 17, 2011 (UTC)

Jokes Wiki

Well, on Jokes Wiki, I am trying to make a better community portal, so I copied all the codes and stuff from this one. Now, I entered the "Create article" template on the wiki's portal, but it came up as red. Naturally, I clicked it, hoping to create the page. Next, I came back to here, skimming through the templates, but I couldn't find "Create article", in order to copy the codes. Help?

viper is beast

hello nick. I am lord viper, you will be seeing me very soon..... watch the news —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Can I have a moment of your time,

I couldn't help but notice that the Tamplets on each section were designed in a very unique way. I also noticed similar styles on other wikipedia (Such as the StarWars Wiki.) uhm, . By any chance do you know if this is unique only to certain wiki? Or is there a way to configure the biography the same on other wikis as well? Because when I tried to use it, other than it appearing as does on the other wikis the bottom half is configured as a 'Square' shape. Do you get what I am trying to say? Like so:

Biographical information
Physical information
Family information
Magical characteristics

User Problems

The User Chris Su is continuing to create useless articles despite warnings to stop. Disciplinary measures are likely needed at this point. -Adv193 00:31, February 14, 2011 (UTC)

House Points Game


Since you're an admin, I would assume you'd know who decides when the House Points Game begins? I asked Hcoknhoj the same question but he didn't anwser.

Head.Boy.Hog(Talk To Me) 00:02, February 17, 2011 (UTC)


Why did you have to lock the page of rodolphus lestrange. i was trying to add a picture of him and ron and someone keeps getting rid of it

Your Username

Hi, I'm new to this wikia, but a BIG Harry Potter fan. My name comes from the Disney Online Game:Pirates of the Caribbean Online. I noticed your username is from books I've read called the Warrior Heir, the Wizard Heir, and the Dragon Heir. There is a man named Nicodemus Snowbeard in there. Is that where you get your username?

semi-protected pages

quoting The Knights Who Say Ni:

"It looks like you made your account a little over an hour ago. So, Welcome to the Harry Potter Wiki! According to information higher on this page, you have to be an Autoconfirmed member (which automatically happens four days after you create your account), and you also have to have made 20 constructive edits before you can edit a semi-protected page. If you want to edit a fully protected page (something that has been locked so that only admins can edit it), you are welcome to bring it up in the talk page, adding a detailed description of what you want changed. An admin is likely to see it and make the change for you. Hope this helps"

you have to do more than just create an account huh

Jacob 23:05, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

oh yeah while I have time to ask this question what time zone is the wiki set to? Jacob 23:14, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

my time zone is -8:00 Pacific/ Canadian Coast time. thats why the time seems so off. Jacob 23:05, February 23, 2011 (UTC)

explain why each page is protected. Jacob 01:51, February 24, 2011 (UTC)


fine. have it your way with me then. Jacob 23:11, February 22, 2011 (UTC)

New Community Council

So I just finished with the first Wikia Community Council meeting, and apparently, a small group of people have been chosen for it, it's to talk about changes, new things, problems, etc. We'll get to test new features as they come out. It's going to meet once a month, and will have a wikia page I'll be a part of to communicate between meetings. So, that being said, if there is anything you would like me to bring to a meeting, problems you've had, ideas, etc. Please let me know. They've started this as a trial, a way to communicate more with the members of wikia. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 02:19, March 2, 2011 (UTC)


i created an account on another wiki (yay!!). the problem is when i try to login onto this wiki with the same account (i am pretty sure a user can use an account on multiple wikis) i keep on getting the same error message: There seems to be a problem with your login session; this action has been canceled as a precaution against session hijacking. Go back to the previous page, reload that page and then try again. help me!! Jacob 02:26, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

This has happened to me whenever I try to login to another wiki except the Command and Conquer wiki (thats the wiki where I created an account). Jacob 15:21, March 2, 2011 (UTC)

It has been four days and I am getting annoyed (I am still having the same problem). how 'bout lets make a deal. if the problem isnt fixed by March 10, you will unprotect me. Leave something on my talk page if you agree to this deal. Jacob 19:57, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Did you knows

Oh, okay, I get it now. One more thing too, I posted a DYK about Augustus Rookwood, but now it's gone...I didn't know if an admin easres it for some reason. It's not a fanon, I just read it in "A Seeker's guide to Harry Potter". Just let me know if I did somthing against the rules! *LunaRavenclawcrest(Owl me!) 15:56, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

It says here in the book
"The UK generally considers itself parochial, but Carol Rookwook at St Mary's Island Church of England Primary School in Kent banned the books in 2000. She said that "Devils, demons, and witches are real and pose the same threat as, say, a child molester." This must have been a deeply offensive comparison to a mother of young children, and indeed, a Rookwook later turnes up as a Death Eater in one of the novels. As JK Rowling said, "You have to be caareful if you get too friendly with me because you tend to turn up in my books, and if you offend me, you often turn up as a nasty character".

I hope this is of help for you to determine wether it's true information or not. *LunaRavenclawcrest(Owl me!) 22:11, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you very much for the cake and the good wishes. That is a nice surprise. I hope of course that your wishes come true. Again, thank you. Harry granger 19:33, March 3, 2011 (UTC)

Magical lego machines

Hey, I noticed your post on Seth's page, I've played the game on both the psp and the xbox360. These "machines" are stationary objects used to get through certain missions or tasks. The "matching" one is technically supposed to be "runes" of which I think only Hermione can use (possibly the Runes professor, but I never tried it with her so I don't know). Once you complete the puzzle (which is a cabinet by the way), it usually spits out something you need for the completion of whatever it is you're doing, or sometimes it frees someone, or is a golden lego, etc. The "hardware" machine, I don't remember the green dot/nuts part but it's been awhile since I played it on psp, but in the xbox 360 it's just something that only a Gringott's goblin can use, as they have a key for it, and it has a crank on it that they turn, again, usually there's something inside of it. The parseltongue one, well, I don't think it's "technically" a machine, but basically there are parts in the castle and missions where there is a snake that you have to speak to in order to get past, and only Harry and Tom Riddle speak parseltongue. I can get pictures if you want to see what they look like. I don't think they should be called "machines" though, that makes it sound too out-of universe. I know the runes one is definitely a cabinet. --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 14:43, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure if those warrant their own article, though. The "matching" one, clearly symbolises Runes, but it is only a locked cabinet (by the way, BachLynn, Bathsheda Babbling, the Runes professor, is never seen in the game). The second one, I recall it was only locked safe with a crank that Goblins could unlock. I'm not so sure on the Parseltoungue ones, though (don't remember those). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:55, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Nick,

I'm on the wikia staff and wanted to reach out. With Deathly Hallows 2 approaching, we'd like to help engage users on the wiki. Among some of our internal thoughts for doing this are:

  • Giving the main page a new background. Just to change things up a bit and keep the look fresh.
  • Changing the Quote of the Week to a random quote generator that will automatically keep the quotes updated.
  • Categorising all pages. Using and/or deleting some of the 1,000 photos that are not being used.
  • Adding more content to the Daily Prophet News page (such as the recently released HP DH 2 online game).
  • Reaching out to more affiliates to get more links set up which will help with Google ranks and bring more traffic to the wiki.
  • Creating a Deathly Hallows 2 Reviewer page and perhaps another giveaway contest.
  • Finally, we'd love you and the other admis to start thinking of ways to keep the wiki active post final film. We can all hopefully brainstorm on this in the near future.

We hope you and the other admins (who I am also contacting) will be receptive to some of this. Let me know your thoughts.

temporary fix for login issue! YAY!!!!!!

I have been talking with the Wikia support staff. They said it was a really unusual bug and also asked me what browser I am using for Wikia (which is Firefox). They then said try a different browser. So I treid Internet Explorer. No problems. Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jacob 04:05, March 11, 2011 (UTC)

problem solved for Firefox. Yay! KENNY thumbCncfanic (Jacob) (Shout!) 03:32, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hey Nick,

I tried those images for the background but thought they looked a bit odd- faces too big and they didn't match the wiki's color scheme. Happy to keep exploring other backgrounds if you'd like.

I think the All-Star featured articles is a great idea.

Wizard's chess

Hey Nick! So I see that you have this way cool Wizard's Chess set up, I'd kinda like to do something like that on our new Hogwarts rpg wiki, giver user's something to participate in. Could you help me out with that? --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 21:33, March 25, 2011 (UTC)

That would be awesome! Thanks! Oh and thanks for the congrats! :-) Did you see Seth's message about taking some time off from here until the film comes out? So he doesn't have it spoiled for him...--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 00:32, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

I think it's more for the fact that the film has changed things from the book, like potentially with Lav's death, and apparently from what I've heard LV and Harry's fight seen has been seriously extended. My husband got annoyed with me because I was telling him how it was different from the book, and he didn't want to hear it until he's seen the movie, lol! I agreed with you on the Lav issue. btw. --BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 01:27, April 8, 2011 (UTC)


I left a message on the Wizengamot and it didn't get a reply yet...Could you take a look at it? Thanks,

Head.Boy.Hog(Talk To Me) 14:10, March 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hello, I am Donut4, about earlier this month I've made a Harry Potter encyclopedia too and it's going great but needs editing. I know that BachLynn/Luna asked if the Hogwarts Roleplay Wiki can be featurd on here and can mine because it needs major editing. It's got links on every page so PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


At the end of Sixth Sense you find out that Bruce Willis's character is a ghost; The Titanic sinks in the end of the movie and Jack dies in the freezing waters; SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE! ;D --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:35, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

You know what's really sad?! I actually had a friend back in high school when the film first came out (Titanic) who didn't know that the film was based on an actual boat from history so when I told her the boat sank (before she went to see it), she got really pissed off at me, lol!--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 21:29, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

Fine by me, I only protected the page because the edit warring was getting ridiculous. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 12:29, April 10, 2011 (UTC)


Hello sorry to bother you but I have made myself a signature however I do not know how to activate it, Can you please tell me how?


This is it: SlytherincrestJamesStrider HallowsSlytherinHouse

A plan I have

If you noticed my recent contributation to the page for the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film) that I want to split the differences between the book and the film to make it easier for people to navigate similar to the Goblet of Fire and Half Blood Prince pages. The earliest movies the Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets do not really need this since their sections are not quite as large. -Adv193 03:46, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Grindelwald pic

Hey, Nick. Just to let you know an infinately better quality version of the Grindelwald image has been uploaded by Enrico. Which means we should be ready for a vote if necessary. Jayden Matthews 08:24, April 20, 2011 (UTC)


Hey, Nick O' Demus. I saw that you're an admin and thought you could help. Last night, a user without an account as vadalizing a few pages along with my user page that to my relief, i was able to undo. I didn't know weither or not to report it. SnapeFan133px(…me…) 11:46, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

You're welcome and thank you. It was late last night when it all happened and i was having editing problems because of a storm in the area and didnt know how to tell anyone. Thanks so much. :) SnapeFan133px(…me…) 12:10, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Vandals

You're welcome; i'm happy to help. And here's a question: I've noticed that sometimes a new user will not know immediately what all the benefits of their account are. Example: if they aren't following a suggestion made on their talk page, it's likely because they don't know the talk page exists. So how do you tell a new user that they have a talk page?

Question about individual infobox templates?

Well, I'm on a Harry Potter fanon site and I've tried to help out and see if I could create some infoboxes to help out certain users when they create their characters. But it turns out that I can't copy the right source code for the templates...when I try to copy and paste the one thats only allowed the found comes out too big and the source buttom at the bottom doesn't always come out there any other way I could get it, please? Because I'd really love to help out on the site. I love Harry Potter. I'll even fully credit the site. JuniperAlien 12:15, April 24, 2011 (UTC

Okay the templates are the wand (Theres an error and the information won't fill out when being used) and the pet individual (Template turns out too large) Thank you so much. Don't forget to credit yourselves JuniperAlien 11:35, April 25, 2011 (UTC)


I voted on both main images, and perused the Quotes and Facts and voted on those too. :-) Cheers!--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 10:32, April 25, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Nick! I have a plead. Do you know how to make Templates? You have some wonderful templates here, but I miss one. There is no template for Severus Snape that says: This user was saddened by the death of Severus Snape. Can you tell me how to do one or do it perhaps for me? For that I would be really grateful. Harry granger 15:27, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you very much. It looks great. I put it at once on my user page. Thanks again. Harry granger 16:04, April 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hope you're okay.

Hi Nick. Thanks for letting me know about the Grindelwald image. I've been meaning to send you a message for a couple of days now, what with everything that's going on in the south of America I wanted to make sure that you were okay. I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks again. Jayden Matthews 13:50, May 1, 2011 (UTC)


Hello! I've been wondering if there's anything I can do with my userpage so the "pages I've created" section isn't so long. I didn't know if there was a way to put it so they's stilled a bulleted list, but there's two right nnext to each other or, like yours, you can just scroll though them. Thank you! *LunaHallows(I suspect Nargles are behind it...) 22:28, May 1, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, thank you! ....that might take a while, I wish I'd asked sooner so there wasn't so many! *LunaHallows(I suspect Nargles are behind it...) 16:24, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Rollback

I have considered asking, and there are a couple of reasons why i haven't asked yet. One is that during a reversion, i sometimes like to look through pages to find out if there are any gnoming improvements to be made. Another is simply that i don't believe i'm experienced enough yet. I've only been a particularly dedicated user here for two weeks.
Also, I'd like some help uploading a picture for my user page. I can figure out the uploading itself, but the information that goes with it is over my head at this point. The picture can be found here and I'd like it at the same file name (Knightni.jpg). The Knights Who Say Ni 21:24, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your help. The Knights Who Say Ni 06:04, May 5, 2011 (UTC)
And i have a higher tolerance than some users on this wiki before i will do a cold-blooded reversion. like, i can tell if it was meant to be disruptive, but i've seen some edits that i thought were reasonable that were reverted by someone else w/o any edit summary besides undid revision # by The French Taunter. i usually prefer to write out a reason if it's not too obvious that it's meant to be disruptive. The Knights Who Say Ni 05:14, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

reason for blog deletion???


ur userpic is so cool!!!

i was just wondering if there was any specific reason for deleting my blog? i saw that it was offtopic, but it was a fanfiction blog. And I don't understand why it is offtopic, since it is containing details and thoughts from the Final Battle. If there is anything i can do to fix it, please feel free to let me know!

sir plz see to it that i have correctly edited the Potter cottage page

Re: Warning templates

i know about the templates (not all of them; thanks for telling me about the remaining ones), but i generally don't use them b/c they are too cold-blooded for my taste. that's why i wrote out the fanstuff notice for that user. Besides, as far as i know, there is a fine line between "Stuff JKR has told us that i don't know about" and "Fanon". is it considered good practice on this wiki to assume good faith? it is on another wiki that i'm active on.

Rich Text Editor

A couple days ago, Samreen Singh was asking for help on how to keep a name from being removed in an infobox. I could tell that the reason he was having trouble was because "Enable Rich Text Editor" was checked in his preferences, and i discouraged switching to the text-based editor. i have noticed that editing option causing a fair amount of small trouble across the wiki (like, pictures in the middle of paragraphs). Actually, tbh, this whole talk section is no more than an educated guess. I didn't even know the wiki could be edited that way until about a week ago, and then i realized that editing it that way made for a much more sensible explanation of why this small trouble is popping up than ppl randomly putting pictures in the middle of paragraphs. I didn't know how to help him b/c i don't have that option checked in my preferences. Do you, and if not, do you know who could help him in that respect?

Johnpaul Castrianni

hi nick, there is an issue on the talk page regarding Johnpaul castrianni, (sorry I am not used to wiki so didnt realise it wasnt as simple as just cutting) I am the person in question and it has been given to my attention that there is problomatic and offensive slander regarding myself by a user that is stating I am commiting fraud. I have appropriate documents to back up my claim as Lord of Kensington and the user submitted that I am nothing more than fraud which could potentially be harmful to me.

I am asking please if that talk comment could Please be removed asap. I do fully respect freedom of speech but not at the expensive of me as a person. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lord.j.castrianni (talkcontribs).

Well we would not want your freedom to lie being at the "expensive" of a person. I refer you to my talk post on the Castrianni wikipage. The title is not recognised by any legitimate authority. The Department of Nomenclature is not a real heraldic institution. In short the "Lord" claim being recognised by the harry potter wiki simply makes us look foolish and makes it appear as if we do not research such claims. Through the internet I can buy certificates saying I own land on the moon, mars or venus (, just because I own a certificate from a dodgy website saying I have a title does not make it real. What makes a title real is its recognition by Heraldic authorities, and recognition a title from a title mill does not have. Atredies 08:35, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

issue cont

sorry again nick, could you advise on how i can do that or if you may , would I be able to scan my legal documents stating my title and email them to you directly?

i appreciate this situation but was the original writer able to provide proof I was not? the comments are extremely slanderous and I do need them removing but I really need help in getting that removed.

many thanks

links regarding offensive material

not sure if this helps but here are several links that do have me being stated as Lord Johnpaul Castrianni

and as stated I am more than happy to email scans of the official documentation to prove my title and then hopefully have the slanderous comments removed.

Johnpaul Castrianni

If I may offer my two cents on this issue? I've just visited the website where Mr. Castrianni aquired his "lordship". It's very amateurish, and promises those who buy a title from them will recieve a huge ego boost, and will have better luck finding a boyfriend or girlfriend. It's clearly nonsense. He isn't a lord, and I'm starting to think his acting credits are bogus as well. Jayden Matthews 13:44, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

I did a little digging, and this appears to be longstanding hoax. "Lord Johnpaul Castriani" pretty much only appears in the links that he provided. The form he uploaded is clearly not a scan and was obviously created in a photoshop program. There is also no such thing as the "Department of Nomenclature." The imbd page he provided also makes no mention of him appearing in any films. The other site he provided is a forum, and can be edited by pretty much anyone. Not a single respectable Potter fan site has material or news related to him either.--Matoro183 (Talk) 21:27, May 10, 2011 (UTC)


hi nick I am sorry to be writing again, but i am sick and tired of all the negtive and down right offensive comments people are posting about me. They dont know me nor do they know my upbringing or background and have the apparent right to try and tell others who I am and what my life entails.

I have tried to show them some form of proof but this still is not good enough. i ahve commited no crome no done anything to offend or publicly hurt anyone yet these people are allowed in some ways to bully me on here.

please just delete the page about me that Someone else built and have this over

Bellatrix Lestrange

Could you please inform me which policy I violated, which resulted in my edits to Bellatrix Lestrange's article being reverted?

The fact that you were unable to answear my question speaks volumes. I wasn't aware one had to ask permission to make edits, especially as all my edits conformed to the policys of this site.

FYI, I am able to change my IP adress if I wish, so banning me would be somewhat futile. Please, if you could answear my question?

New template

Yeah, it's happening a little more than I would like. Watching the move log is a pain :P Nice idea on the template, though. I think it's fine as it is. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 07:19, May 24, 2011 (UTC)

House Points Game

I was asked recently by Head.Boy.Hog about when the next "term" of the House Points Game would start. It gave me the idea that we could re-start the game and hold a kind of competition tied to the release of the last film. Each house could pick an article related to Deathly Hallows in some way and work to improve it (and if there aren't enough participants for four teams, then it could be Gryffindor-Hufflepuff vs. Ravenclaw-Slytherin).
