:I'm not an admin anywhere of relevance, but I have something to contribute.

It lists both German wikis in question and dozens more languages: Danish, Catalan, etc, many of which aren't linked to this one. I asked if the the admins here would like to get their wiki linked to these wikis. ProfessorTofty deferred the decision to community consensus. Admirable, but nobody ever posted again.

== Questions ==
  +
  +
I have four things to ask:
  +
  +
1. I would like to add a "Reception" section to the [[Draco Malfoy]] page regarding his popularity and the tendency of people to pair him with Hermione, as well as the fact that he directly inspired the "Draco in Leather Pants" trope.
  +
  +
2. [[Crabbe]] and [[Goyle]] should be redirects to [[Vincent Crabbe]] and [[Gregory Goyle]] rather than their fathers since the sons are far, far more prominent and are usually referred to by their last names.
  +
  +
3. "Sorcerer's Stone" should at least be mentioned as an alternate name or alias in the [[Philosopher's Stone]] article.
  +
  +
4. I would like to create an article on the audiobook splicing series known as "Dirty Potter", or at least add it to the list of parodies page. Is it notable enough for a mention here, or even its own page?
  +
  +
Please respond on my talk page.

Good Morning,
  +
  +
Can you help me how to detect if anyone is using false info. instead of real relevant informaton, if yes please leave message on my Talk Page [[User:Amujoshi11|Amujoshi11]] ([[User talk:Amujoshi11|talk]]) 10:41, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

False info i meant to say that if anyone used their own information or which is irrelevant what can i do to get to know about it

==Wikipedia template==
  +
Appparently Wikipedia changed the way it does the URLs for page histories since the [[:Template:Wikipedia|Wikipedia template]] was created on here. It's directing to "w/wiki/pagename&action=history", but apparently "w/index.php?title=pagename&action=history" is what is now needed in order to get to the page history. I'm going to try to see if I can get it to work, but in the meantime, I'm letting you know, just in case you might know something that I don't to fix it.

== Just a Few Questions... ==
  +
  +
Hello Nick. I just wondered... first, {{U|MinorStoop}} wonders whether there are any more opinions on [[Talk:Disarming Charm#Description header.|this]] topic, so I wondered if you had an opinion to share :)
  +
  +
Also, I wondered if you knew why the infobox on [http://potter-dictionary.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3AIndividual_infobox here] was acting the way it did... I still remember how hard you tried to help with the titles and appreciate it a lot even if it wasn't quite the way you wanted it to turn out... we did manage in the end, though :) --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunnie Bunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 21:57, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
  +
  +
:The infobox will expand with the text being put into it, so that with certain amounts of text, the infobox will expand to fill the whole page. That's in contrast to here, where the text will begin appearing underneath or whatever. Thanks for the help, we really appreciate it. --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunnie Bunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 22:09, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

  +
  +
::::I also wondered if you wanted admin/bureaucrat rights on the Potter Dictionary Wiki, they're available too... I know you'll be spending most wiki-time on your already working-on wikis, but we need another admin for when there is only one. I have also extended this offer to {{U|ProfessorTofty}} just in case... you, {{U|Harry granger}} and he might be working together there, if you accept :) --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunnie Bunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 13:21, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

== Just a question ==
  +
  +
I wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured I'd ask you. The "[[Memory Charm]]" page claims that the "Memory-Modifying Charm" mentioned to have been invented by [[Mnemone Radford]] is "''Obliviate''", which makes sense when one considers that she later became the Ministry's first [[Obliviator]]. However, the "modifying" portion of the name suggests one would use it to ''modify'' memories, the way Voldemort's [[false memory charm]] worked. Where should I post this theory? And what is your opinion, if you have any? --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunnie Bunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 22:00, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

One of Wikia's staff left a message on my talk page regarding displaying an ad for Wikia's My Wikia app service on the homepage.

Hi Nick. Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to adapt the [http://potter-dictionary.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3ASpell_infobox spell infobox] on our wiki because it has the same problem as the individual infobox did.

== Question Re: Luna's Necklace ==
  +
  +
Hey Nick!
  +
  +
New to HPwiki, I attempted an edit and I understand that it was removed because it was formatted/worded incorrectly according to the policies. My question is this:
  +
  +
How best should I include the IMPORTANT distinction that the text, HP OoP pg 185, cleary states that Luna's necklace was made of butterbeer caps despite the film adaptation's portrayal of her necklace as a butterbeer cork?
  +
  +
Should this be included in the behind the scenes section?
  +
  +
Thanks,
  +
  +
PJM
  +
  +
ps. I really believe the entire page should be edited to reflect the fact that the necklace was made of caps, and the mention of it being a cork should be a secondary fact... but I'll settle for the page title remaining the same with the inclusion of the bottle cap fact. ;)

==RE: Regarding your comments to other users==
  +
  +
Nick, tell me. In a situation where you ''are'' right, where you ''know'' you're right and where ''evidence'' proves you right and you make the change to the page... only to find it changed back by some ''upstart'' when you next arrive, you go to a discussion, correct?
  +
  +
However, what do you do when that person refuses, point blank, to conform to what us right? Hmm? You do what I did; you make them wish they'd never turned their laptop on and that they'd never clicked "undo" - all in all, you make them small and defeated... until the next "discussion".
  +
  +
However, I understand your words. I shall refrain from personal attacks... unless provoked. ''Anyone'', admin or not, who provokes me... ''WILL'' pay. --[[User:HarryPotterRules1|HarryPotterRules1]] ([[User talk:HarryPotterRules1|talk]]) 20:59, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

: Nick, I would suggest that these latest comments alone warrant a temporary block. ''"Anyone, admin or not, who provokes me... ''WILL'' pay."'' is a threat in itself, and shows a complete lack of regard for previous warnings, and disrespect towards the administrators. HPR1's most recent comments on my talk-page also constitute a personal attack, albeit against someone who isn't an editor on this wiki.--{{The Boy Who Cried Direwolf/Signature}} 12:58, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
  +

: My actions towards CestWhat may have crossed the line on occasions, but ''were'' ultimately in the right and for the right reasons - that, as I said on The Boy Who Cried Direwolf's page, justifies the means. No matter what the actions, they ''can'' be excused if you're in the right or fighting someone - like I was with you two - who were refusing to see the whole argument and picking on one tiny point. I won with CestWhat on the Downton Abbey Wiki and that took long enough by eventually having her banned from the DA wiki first and then through someone - I think it was Hunnie Bunn, but don't quote me on that! - having her banned totally. --[[User:HarryPotterRules1|HarryPotterRules1]] ([[User talk:HarryPotterRules1|talk]]) 19:32, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Admin welcome Edit

Thanks! I appreciate it, it's good to be on-board. Oh, and if you have a moment, could you review the Featured articles nominations and possibly weigh in on some of them? I recently got the process started up again and I'd like to get some people to vote on the nominations that have been made. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:39, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

RE:BureaucratEdit

You flatter me, really. If it is in the best interest of the wiki, I'd gladly accept nomination. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:18, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Other featured content Edit

You're completely right, it could all use a good lookover. I was hoping to clear out some of the backlog on the Featured articles stuff first, and then maybe move on to that. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:00, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Sources Edit

Hi. Sorry to bother you, but would I be able to use this page as a source for renaming Expulso to "Expulso Spell"? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:54, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Hm... it should work. Do you mean you can't click on it, or just that it doesn't seem to lead anywhere? Either way, here's the site: http://www.gamesover.com/HP7/level11.htm, in case you still can't get the link to work so you can copy and paste it into your search bar. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:00, January 16, 2013 (UTC)
That's odd... anyways, it's pretty much just a video game guide for the seventh video game, with a screenshot calling Expulso the "Expulso Spell"; I wouldn't have asked first, but as it wasn't an official source I wasn't sure if we could use it or not. By the way, your name isn't turning up orange as it should when an admin edits, and sorry if I sounded rude in my edit note on the Boggart page. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:10, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Videos and references issue Edit

This was an issue that came up a while back when Wikia added in the "Media galleries" feature. As Hunnie Bunn indicated, if you find any others like that, you can just change "widths" to "width" and it should solve the problem. Most of them have already been taken care of, but there may still be one or two here or there that have the issue. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:58, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Issues Edit

Hi. Sorry to keep bothering you. But I had two questions.

  1. Would it be all right if I change the "their" in your last message to Professor Tofty to "his", as it's just one talk page?
  2. I see you opened up a vote for Seth Cooper to be a bureaucrat; am I allowed to vote?

Thanks --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:42, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Expulso Spell and Orange Edit

The link loaded okay for me, however, given that this is an unofficial gameplay and strategy site, I can't endorse a change in the spell name based simply on the information of this site. And as for your name not appearing in orange, I can see it in orange on the Recent Changes, but not the Recent Wiki Activity. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:57, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Avery Jr.Edit

I wonder which of the Death Eater in 4 film was Avery?

HP on the WebEdit

Hello! How would you feel about taking part of the responsibility for the Harry Potter Wiki Twitter (@Official_HPWiki) and Facebook? We are looking for someone or some people who would be interested in maintaining the accounts! We usually like to update daily, but we also like to have fun with it! I am contacting you because you seem pretty active on this wiki, so if you are interested in learning more, please let me know! If you are not interested, but can think of other users that would be and would maintain the accounts regularly, please let me know as well, thanks!

Grace@Wikia 23:04, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

Possibly same character Edit

Hello Nick O'Demus I noticed that: Unidentified Death Eater (III) and Unidentified Male Death Eater (III) has the same costume .If it's the same character then we're on this Wiki progressed a further .Talk it over with the other Admins .

Non-beings as creatures. Edit

Hope you don't mind me disagreeing with you, but I am not sure that categorizing "non-beings" as "creatures" is correct. Unless you define "non-beings" as "other-than-beings", it is logically contradictory. MinorStoop 13:13, January 22, 2013 (UTC)

Linking Edit

Hello Nick O'Demus. I've recently opened a new forum, which you can find here. I would appreciate your valuable input on this matter. Thanks. --Hunnie Bunn (Owl me!) 21:01, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

Bullying Report Edit

Hi. According to this user I am constantly harassing and bullying him on his talk page and to use his words "tearing [him] apart". You can find the comments here. I figured I'd let you know in case you wanted to block me or something, whatever it is you do when you see mean comments. Thanks! Hunnie Bunn (talk)

Never mind, it turns out I wasn't bullying him after all. Sorry to bother. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hunnie Bunn (talkcontribs).

Reading ClubEdit

However, ProfessorTofty and I were thinking of starting a Reading Club (or so, I asked and Professor Tofty said it was worth considering). Would you be interested in participating? --Hunnie Bunn (Owl me!) 02:06, January 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for changing the page Avery (Marauder-era)!Edit

Well, thank you a lot to correct my mistake!--NGC fan (talk) 13:14, January 29, 2013 (UTC)NGC fan

RE:RE:Linking and Reading Club Edit

Sorry it took so long to respond, my computer kept on shutting itself down before I realized it needed charging... As toward the linking matter, I think perhaps it would be best to expand the two wikis before beginning to link this one to them, as this one is so large by comparison. Toward the reading club, though - we look forward to seeing you there, and it should be good fun. --Hunnie Bunn (Owl me!) 12:59, February 1, 2013 (UTC)

RE:PottermoreEdit

Hi, thank you. I've just accepted. Nice to know another Hufflepuff from here on Pottermore. I hope they don't need too long to go on with the book. This waiting is annoying.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 16:53, February 1, 2013 (UTC)

Template:Quidditch Tournament infoboxEdit

Sorry for messing up the template. That was not my intention. I confused this wiki with another and made and saved the change here instead in the other wiki. Sorry again for the trouble.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:03, February 2, 2013 (UTC)

Harpy Edit

I'm Belac Reteet.  I would like to talk about my Harpy page, and why you disagree with it's existence.  Please leave me a message.  Catch ya later!belacreteet (talk) 01:58, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

Okay then, forget harpies.  I'm Belac Reteet, by the way.  Hey, I wanted to tell you something.  We're having a debate on the Horcrux Talk Page about whether horcruxes count as living things or mere objects.  We could use more people, so I thought I'd let you know.  Catch ya later!belacreteet (talk) 19:05, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

RE:GAHEdit

You have to agree that it's adorable! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:50, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

hi why did you delete that Ellie Samantha page?

I know Ellie Samantha in real life and the casting director of Harry Potter told her she was really close to getting the part, he said if Helena hadn't got it she would.

Susan Bones Edit

No affence (offence? offense? ofence? a fence?), but shouldn't we be using the film image, even if it is outdated, because films are second tier canon and video games are third tier? Sorry to bother. --Don't forget: Elvendork! (It's unisex!) 23:21, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Oh, I see :) Thanks. --Don't forget: Elvendork! (It's unisex!) 23:34, February 23, 2013 (UTC)

Igor Karkaroff ageEdit

Thanks for correcting. We may have been editing at the same time, or else I would have seen the age removal. Thanks. --94.191.184.48 16:14, March 4, 2013 (UTC)

Chat Edit

If you have a moment, could I talk to you on chat? Whenever you have the chance is fine. I'm going to be on and off throughout this morning (and probably for at least fifteen minutes from the posting of this message), so if you get this, just holler, and we can talk. Otherwise, just if we see each other on and editing at the same time. ProfessorTofty (talk) 11:37, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Some of those do look vaguely familiar, and I'll certainly keep my eyes open for them. ProfessorTofty (talk) 12:07, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Original Research Edit

Hi Nick. I saw your message on this thriving discussion about using anything other than canon to apply to canon. Does this therefore apply to dates perceived from mathematics (i. e. dates students were born or when they graduated from Hogwarts, etc.) and does that mean that Jelly-Legs Jinx should be unmerged from Jelly-Legs Curse? Or Gemino Curse (Doubling Charm) from Geminio? Finite Incantatem from General Counter-Spell? Admittedly, I did all of the above merges, but it was with little to no opposition. Shouldn't I have? Should all speculation be removed? (PS, Sorry if I come across as standoffish or whatnot, but I'm being a bit paranoid here). Cheers, Hunnie Bunn! 13:26, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Mortals Edit

Hey Nick O'Demus.  I'm Belac Reteet.  Just wanted to ask if you're the one who deleted my mortals category page.  Catch ya later!belacreteet (talk) 18:07, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry Nick, it turns out I was wrong - it was ProfessorTofty after all. Please disregard these messages. --Hunnie Bunn! 18:15, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Killed by categories Edit

Not having categories of only one article makes sense, but there are already quite a few that fit that case in Category:Individuals by killer. Just letting you know so you can delete those. --SnorlaxMonster 06:59, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

Quote of the Week Edit

Thank you for taking care of adding the recent additions to the archive. I wasn't familiar with how to get to it. Since they've been placed there now, I'm going to go ahead and remove them from the nominations page, so they're not cluttering it up anymore. ProfessorTofty (talk) 18:23, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

actors categoryEdit

So recently it came out from a direct source that one of the actors we had listed for an actor in the movie was wrong (though I wish I could have seen the sources I had listed before it was deleted, because I know I wouldn't have created a page on a random hunch unless I had seen it on another website >.<) but I decided to maybe go through and double check sourcing on all our real world actors and such, when I noticed that an anon recently made some new categories within the actor real world category specifiying nationality, like "American actors real world". So two questions, is this something we should keep, and personally I think if we do, so to not be redundant, I could go through and make sure it follows a cateogory tier, so like if it's an american actor, they only have that category and not the actors category as well, what do you think?

Re: Category notability Edit

Thanks for fixing up the "Quidditch teams with robes" thing. And yes, I'd defnitely be up for a discussion of standards regarding category notability-- I do agree that it's seemed like it's gotten a bit out of control lately. ProfessorTofty (talk) 14:43, March 16, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Actors referencesEdit

Oh, boy. What to do: categorically remove the possibly misleading statements, or should we try to find additional references that confirm his participation in the film? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:08, March 21, 2013 (UTC)

Interwiki Linking Edit

Hi, I'm Eladkse - an admin at Community Central. One of my responsibilities it to help manage interwiki links between wikis of different languages.

I'm calling by to ask if you could confirm that the German wiki de.harrypotter is indeed the correct interwiki variant for Harry Potter Wiki. Due to unknown reasons, harrypotter (sans hyphen) is also linked to this wiki, and i need to know which is correct so I can fix it. Many thanks. Eladkse (talk) 15:24, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not an admin anywhere of relevance, but I have something to contribute. Over a month ago, I made a forum post with a very long list of foreign-language Harry Potter wikis: you can find it here. It lists both German wikis in question and dozens more languages: Danish, Catalan, etc, many of which aren't linked to this one. I asked if the the admins here would like to get their wiki linked to these wikis. ProfessorTofty deferred the decision to community consensus. Admirable, but nobody ever posted again. I s'pose Eladkse's business is top priority, but you might take a look at my thread too. Elecbullet (talk) 22:17, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Just wondering, how does one make the names of pages italic? I know how here, but on the Potter Dictionary Wiki (a wiki just about the books), it doesn't work so well (an example can be seen here). Could you please help? Thanks. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:46, April 2, 2013 (UTC)

Redirects to talk pagesEdit

Just asking confirmation, next time I meet a redirect to a talk page, I'll tag it for deletion instead to fix it as a redirect? MinorStoop 12:01, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks! MinorStoop 20:14, April 19, 2013 (UTC)

Questions Edit

I have four things to ask:

1. I would like to add a "Reception" section to the Draco Malfoy page regarding his popularity and the tendency of people to pair him with Hermione, as well as the fact that he directly inspired the "Draco in Leather Pants" trope.

2. Crabbe and Goyle should be redirects to Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle rather than their fathers since the sons are far, far more prominent and are usually referred to by their last names.

3. "Sorcerer's Stone" should at least be mentioned as an alternate name or alias in the Philosopher's Stone article.

4. I would like to create an article on the audiobook splicing series known as "Dirty Potter", or at least add it to the list of parodies page. Is it notable enough for a mention here, or even its own page?

Please respond on my talk page. Moleman 9000 22:36, April 20, 2013 (UTC)

False info?Edit

Good Morning,

Can you help me how to detect if anyone is using false info. instead of real relevant informaton, if yes please leave message on my Talk Page Amujoshi11 (talk) 10:41, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

False info i meant to say that if anyone used their own information or which is irrelevant what can i do to get to know about it  

Wikipedia templateEdit

Appparently Wikipedia changed the way it does the URLs for page histories since the Wikipedia template was created on here. It's directing to "w/wiki/pagename&action=history", but apparently "w/index.php?title=pagename&action=history" is what is now needed in order to get to the page history. I'm going to try to see if I can get it to work, but in the meantime, I'm letting you know, just in case you might know something that I don't to fix it. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:15, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Ah, okay. Well, I have one or two other things I want to try, but if those don't work, then yeah, I guess we ask Grunny. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:52, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
Okay, give it a whirl, then, because what I just tried didn't work. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:57, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
Looking good on my end. Nice work. ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:04, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Just a Few Questions... Edit

Hello Nick. I just wondered... first, MinorStoop wonders whether there are any more opinions on this topic, so I wondered if you had an opinion to share :)

Also, I wondered if you knew why the infobox on here was acting the way it did... I still remember how hard you tried to help with the titles and appreciate it a lot even if it wasn't quite the way you wanted it to turn out... we did manage in the end, though :) --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:57, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

The infobox will expand with the text being put into it, so that with certain amounts of text, the infobox will expand to fill the whole page. That's in contrast to here, where the text will begin appearing underneath or whatever. Thanks for the help, we really appreciate it. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:09, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks :) --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:29, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Yay :) Thanks much for all the help, we really appreciate it :) --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 12:45, April 27, 2013 (UTC)
I also wondered if you wanted admin/bureaucrat rights on the Potter Dictionary Wiki, they're available too... I know you'll be spending most wiki-time on your already working-on wikis, but we need another admin for when there is only one. I have also extended this offer to ProfessorTofty just in case... you, Harry granger and he might be working together there, if you accept :) --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 13:21, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Thank youEdit

I really thank you for the info.

Amujoshi11 (talk) 15:36, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Adminship/Tutorials Edit

I see... hopefully ProfessorTofty will, then, because we need someone by next weekend.

Anyways, yes please, and thanks very much; I was trying earlier to get it to work, but all that coding is utterly confusing. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:11, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Just a question Edit

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I figured I'd ask you. The "Memory Charm" page claims that the "Memory-Modifying Charm" mentioned to have been invented by Mnemone Radford is "Obliviate", which makes sense when one considers that she later became the Ministry's first Obliviator. However, the "modifying" portion of the name suggests one would use it to modify memories, the way Voldemort's false memory charm worked. Where should I post this theory? And what is your opinion, if you have any? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 22:00, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

My Wikia Edit

One of Wikia's staff left a message on my talk page regarding displaying an ad for Wikia's My Wikia app service on the homepage. Personally, I have nothing against the idea, but I wanted to run it by the other admins first, just to make sure. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:32, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

New topicEdit

Hi Nick. Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to adapt the spell infobox on our wiki because it has the same problem as the individual infobox did. However, there wasn't anything in the tutorial about what to do if individual sections were unnecessary, and everything I tried just made it worse. Could you please help? Thank you. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:27, May 7, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, it was my browser :S. Never mind, sorry. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 19:29, May 8, 2013 (UTC)

Thamk you. Edit

Thank you very much for your birthday wishes.--Rodolphus (talk) 09:07, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Danniesen Edit

Hi. Just figured I'd let you know, there's a forum here where we're debating on whether to let Danniesen back, and we wondered if you could please provide your opinion (should you have one, of course). --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 15:28, May 19, 2013 (UTC)

VandalismEdit

User:ScrewEFW is blanking pages all over the wiki. {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 17:52, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

Abusive userEdit

What's the process, please, for requesting a Wikia-wide block on this individual. Is it a request at Community Central? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 18:27, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

Not Community Central as such, but the VSTF Wiki, which is reached via Community Central. I don't know if they accept requests from established users (as they should), or if it needs to be an admin. — RobertATfm (talk) 19:28, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

New (ab)user? Edit

There is now a user called I WON'T STOP MOTHERFOCKER. To my mind a clear candidate for a pre-emptive block for the "unacceptable username" reason, and also I suspect this is the same person as MindlessSh**head and IBrokeThePot whom you banned recently. Perhaps the VSTF need to be involved? — RobertATfm (talk) 19:24, July 24, 2013 (UTC)

i have dealt with both MS and IBrokeThePot before on The Hunger Games Wiki and have reported them to CC. my advice for what it's worth, go ahead and invlove VSTF. maybe they can help. Temp Wingman1 04:02, July 25, 2013 (UTC) 

Category deletions Edit

Just a heads-up-- try to make sure to check carefully for templates and such before deleting any categories, such as Order of the Phoenix Allies and Death Eater Allies. It was a reasonably simple fix, but until I spotted the problem, it was causing redlinks on hundreds of pages. ProfessorTofty (talk) 23:30, August 22, 2013 (UTC)

Re: Hunter Mariner Edit

Thanks, Nick. The range-block has been laid down, so hopefully that sorts the problem for a while. I did a bit of checking and apparently that guy is a regular sockpuppet at Wikipedia as well. ProfessorTofty (talk) 21:06, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Sam Child's page/Samchild83Edit

No way to check the identity of ths Samchild83 guy, but there's no page on him on Wikipedia and IMDB does not report any work of him on DH. I suggested him to contact an admin - I suspect that a reversal/block will not solve the situation. MinorStoop 13:49, October 1, 2013 (UTC)

Many thanks. MinorStoop 15:49, October 6, 2013 (UTC)

Question Re: Luna's Necklace Edit

Hey Nick!

New to HPwiki, I attempted an edit and I understand that it was removed because it was formatted/worded incorrectly according to the policies. My question is this:

How best should I include the IMPORTANT distinction that the text, HP OoP pg 185, cleary states that Luna's necklace was made of butterbeer caps despite the film adaptation's portrayal of her necklace as a butterbeer cork?

Should this be included in the behind the scenes section?

Thanks,

PJM

ps. I really believe the entire page should be edited to reflect the fact that the necklace was made of caps, and the mention of it being a cork should be a secondary fact... but I'll settle for the page title remaining the same with the inclusion of the bottle cap fact. ;)

Publicity stunt Edit

Sorry to bother you for this - please have this page deleted and this user blocked. S/he'll never do anything than post some publicity.

Thank you.

Petunia DursleyEdit

Why don't you first read the discussion instead of reverting sensible edits? Sometimes it makes a lot of sense to read the discussion! --Josef D. (talk) 20:13, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Was going to make the same suggestion, even though not with this vehemency. MinorStoop 20:16, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Well, you did make a stint into the discussion by now though you don't seem to have read it carefully. Your post was besides the point (see there). Josef D. (talk) 20:20, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Since we seem to have reached an impasse in the 'floruit' discussion on the Petunia Dursley talkpage, may I remove myself from the debate, on the grounds that anything useful I might have to contribute has already been expressed, frequently several times over? {{SUBST:User:Jiskran/Signature}} 21:32, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Lucius Malfoy's templatesEdit

Say, Nick, what do the "FA" and "Pottermoreold" templates on Lucius Malfoy's page do? I stil fail to see any effect of theirs on the page, probably because I'm looking in the wrong place.

Is there any help available on templates, a list of them and their effect, and, if not, would it be a good idea to prepare one somewhere? Thanks, MinorStoop 23:55, November 27, 2013 (UTC)

I hope you look at my edit to magizoology and dont delete it because its a good addition.


Thanks =DEdit

RE:Something's different... Edit

It looks that way, slightly, yes. Although I don't know why. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:10, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I would say it has to do with the fluid layout, look here.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 17:13, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

RE: Regarding your comments to other usersEdit

Nick, tell me. In a situation where you are right, where you know you're right and where evidence proves you right and you make the change to the page... only to find it changed back by some upstart when you next arrive, you go to a discussion, correct?

However, what do you do when that person refuses, point blank, to conform to what us right? Hmm? You do what I did; you make them wish they'd never turned their laptop on and that they'd never clicked "undo" - all in all, you make them small and defeated... until the next "discussion".

However, I understand your words. I shall refrain from personal attacks... unless provoked. Anyone, admin or not, who provokes me... WILL pay. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 20:59, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

It was not a discussion. I was asking a question because I wanted an answer. That is the point of a question, is it not? --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 23:34, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

I've read it. I'll abide by them, provided no-one gives me a need to go down those lines; that is usually why I do. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 02:29, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

Nick, I would suggest that these latest comments alone warrant a temporary block. "Anyone, admin or not, who provokes me... WILL pay." is a threat in itself, and shows a complete lack of regard for previous warnings, and disrespect towards the administrators. HPR1's most recent comments on my talk-page also constitute a personal attack, albeit against someone who isn't an editor on this wiki.--The-Boy 12:58, December 13, 2013 (UTC)
My actions towards CestWhat may have crossed the line on occasions, but were ultimately in the right and for the right reasons - that, as I said on The Boy Who Cried Direwolf's page, justifies the means. No matter what the actions, they can be excused if you're in the right or fighting someone - like I was with you two - who were refusing to see the whole argument and picking on one tiny point. I won with CestWhat on the Downton Abbey Wiki and that took long enough by eventually having her banned from the DA wiki first and then through someone - I think it was Hunnie Bunn, but don't quote me on that! - having her banned totally. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 19:32, December 13, 2013 (UTC)

UsernameEdit

Should this be a breach of privacy, I apologize, but I'm curious about where you took your username from. The only other instance of this name I am aware of is one of the bad guys in Jim Butcher's Dresden files (a series I enjoyed a lot, if I'm allowed to make a recommendation). Thanks. MinorStoop 21:53, December 16, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for telling me; a bit late but it's been a busy couple of days. I also wish to thank you for reminding also to me (though perhaps only on the slant) to watch to my comments - I do have a tendency to butt in where I'm not due. MinorStoop 17:09, December 19, 2013 (UTC)

RE:AdminsEdit

I wouldn't argue about it. If you think they fulfill the inactivity criteria, then by all means do it. It's not that big a deal, though -- if they come back, then they should be pushed back into the "active admins" list. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:28, December 24, 2013 (UTC)

I think so. At the moment we have Cubs Fan, you and myself as active admins, with Starstuff editing only once every now and then (mostly around Pottermore updates), and with ProfessorTofty's latest edit having been some two months away. I think this is the least active admins the wiki's had at least since I've been around. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:30, January 14, 2014 (UTC)

Speedstinger011, or underage user?Edit

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)

Brazilian usersEdit

Vandal templateEdit

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.Edit

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?
