==Speedstinger011, or underage user?==
  +
If the statement on his [[User:Speedstinger011|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, [[User talk:MinorStoop|<font face="French Script MT"><font size="6" color="red">MinorStoop</font></font>]] 15:40, January 1, 2014 (UTC)
   
Thanks! I appreciate it, it's good to be on-board. Oh, and if you have a moment, could you review the [[Harry Potter Wiki:Featured articles nominations|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.

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! [[User:Hpotterf0r3v3r|Hpotterf0r3v3r]] ([[User talk:Hpotterf0r3v3r|talk]]) 01:51, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

== Videos and references issue ==

==Fl.==
  +
Hey, Nick!
   
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.

[[User:Ashley Brown|Ashley Brown]] ([[User talk: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.
   
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.

== Non-beings as creatures. ==
+
==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)
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.

== Original Research ==
 
 
Hi Nick. I saw your message on [[Talk:Living Dead|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).

==actors category==
 
 
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?

I'm calling by to ask if you could confirm that the German wiki [[w:c:de.harry-potter|de.harrypotter]] is indeed the correct interwiki variant for Harry Potter Wiki. Due to unknown reasons, [[w:c:de.harrypotter|harrypotter]] (sans hyphen) is also linked to this wiki, and i need to know which is correct so I can fix it.
 
Many thanks. [[User:Eladkse|Eladkse]] ([[User talk: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 [[Forum:Foreign_language_Harry_Potter_wikis|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. [[User:Elecbullet|Elecbullet]] ([[User talk: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 [http://potter-dictionary.wikia.com/wiki/The_Standard_Book_of_Spells,_Grade_Six?action=edit here]). Could you please help? Thanks. --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunnie Bunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 22:46, April 2, 2013 (UTC)
 
==Redirects to talk pages==
 
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? [[User talk:MinorStoop|<font face="French Script MT"><font size="6" color="cyan">MinorStoop</font></font>]] 12:01, April 18, 2013 (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

How do I add my patronus and the house I support onto my profile?AvatarQuan (talk) 13:32, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

I just wanna thank you for the answer about how to be inserted in the category "Brazilian users". Andre G. Dias (talk) 19:01, January 17, 2014 (UTC)

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?

Your wand... Edit

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 Edit

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

Thank you.--Rodolphus (talk) 19:20, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

Return to old behaviour patternEdit

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)
