Pages

Unfortunately, only Administrators and Bureaucrats have the ability to delete pages. However, if you accidentally make a page that already exists, you can simply redirect the page you created to the existing one. To do this, clear the text from the page, and replace it with #REDIRECT [[Page name of existing article goes here]]. Hope that answers your query. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 15:18, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello

Hi! I was looking at your page and I saw that your patronus was a ginger cat. How can this be when patronuses are described as a white and silvery substance? How does yours appear ginger? Thanks, Harrypotterfreak 17:58, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

You don't have to change it. Thanks for replying back and being so nice. I see you like Ravenclaw. Who is your faavorite actor/actress in the movies? Harrypotterfreak 13:44, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

My favourite character would definitely be Severus Snape! Alan Rickman is so perfect for the part. His voice is just so. . .breathtaking. I also like Nymphadora Tonks played by Nat Tena. Who is your favourite actor/actress not the Harry Potter movies is you have one? There are several more to choose from, isn't there? Harrypotterfreak 15:12, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

My favourite actress is Mariska Hargitay. My mum got me started on the Harry Potter books 7 years ago. Harrypotterfreak 15:14, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah, it's been great talking to you as well. Which Harry Potter book is your favourite?Harrypotterfreak 23:43, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Exactly the same here! Everyone I have talked to like Chamber os Secrets and Goblet of Fire the most, but those are my leasst favourites. Not that I don't like any of the books, I think they are all wonderful!. What is your favourite movie out so far? Harrypotterfreak 23:16, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Images

In order to insert an image into an infobox you would use the following: [[File:HarryPotter5.jpg|250px]] (if the width is smaller than 250px then just use [[File:HarryPotter5.jpg]]), and obviously replace HarryPotter5.jpg with whatever image. If you have the thumb option set that usually adds a box around the image. I'm not sure that answered your question, but if you need more help feel free to ask. And the page/infobox/image would be helpful if you need more information. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:22, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Images

Go ahead and add them if you want. I'm pretty sure it's allowed. -- Freakatone Talk 18:23, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Freakatone is right, you can put images from the Wiki on your userpage, generally. And don't worry about asking a lot of questions. We were all new once. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:23, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks. I hope I do a good job! If you have any problems/questions, feel free to say so! -- Freakatone Talk 19:54, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Vandal

Thanks. Tell me if he makes any other edits. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:35, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Its ok to report them, though not necessary until they start making more edits. Feel free to warn them on their talk page though (See (Warning templates). Also -- do not edit my talk page archives. Use my current talk page. Thanks. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:54, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Rollback

You can use HPW:RFP to request rollback. But...I've already given them to you. (And here's the standard message we give...) Hi, Palmala. It has been determined that you are a trusted member of this community and that we benefit from your contributions. Upon request or through my own description, I have granted you rollback privileges. This tool can be used to quickly revert vandalism and maintain the quality of this wiki. Please remember to use this tool with discretion and never in a content dispute. You should now see a "rollback" link when viewing a user's contributions. Thanks, and happy editing. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:22, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

You already have it. You're a great user! Use this new power wisely! -- Freakatone Talk 19:59, 12 June 2008 (UTC)
You're welcome. And yeah, that's my talk page. Sorry about being rather harsh about that before, but I find it rather annoying when my sub pages are edited. I'm acutally not even sure how you ended up on my archive talk page...the only way to it should be the one link. But yeah, always use User talk:DarkJedi613 for my talk page. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:02, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

If they can do it, why not us?

The latest on Project Scarhead!
Welcome to Project Scarhead! Okay, firstly, thank you for signing up. We have a big job to do, but hopefully, with so many hands we can get the job done. Basically put, the Harry Potter article is our main article - he's the series lead and the main focus of the books. As such, he should also be our biggest and best article, the kind of article we're proud to show off on the main page and tell people we did it. We will be working on a subpage, located here: User:Cavalier One/Project Scarhead. This will serve as our workplace, and all members of Project Scarhead are authorised to edit it, and I urge you all to put it on your watchlist so you can track usage. I have already rearranged the article to conform with our standard layout guide. I am suggesting tackling the article in chronological order, working through each of the seven books in turn, stopping after each book is done and reviewing the work to date. However, let me know if you wish to work on a particular sections or book and you will be accomodated. Again, welcome to Project Scarhead! Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:39, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Yes, you can start editing the draft page noted in the message above. It will be good if you can start on the possessions section - just remember to follow the stylistic guides and the project rules when you do. And don't worry if someone re-edits your work, because this is a collaborative project, and we're all working towards the same goal! - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 08:58, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

RE: Anonymous users

Yes. Anonymous users can edit any page that hasn't been protected to be for logged in or sysop only. It still shows up in the history and everything though. And the same user can be tracked through their IP address. Any particular reason you'd like to know? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:22, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

But even a logged in user can post a rude comment on someone's talk page. If you find that it happens...bring it ot the attention of one of the administrators and we will deal with it. But don't worry -- for the most part people are nice. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 18:40, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

RE: Infoboxes

Infoboxes are just a template -- but I would suggest not really trying to make one unless you know how they work. I know we have a {{Quidditch team}} template, but not an infobox one. I can make one, but what infomation should be on it? (Name, "Home town", Year of Creation...) -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:34, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

I'm confused. Did you mean we should have an infobox for Quidditch teams or Quidditch players? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:28, 24 July 2008 (UTC)
Well I don't think we could do seeker/chaser/etc. because those change depending on the year, which is why we have the {{Quidditch team}} template. But some of the other ones would be good (name: who their playing for, alias, first formed, mascot, first game, last game, rival, league). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:40, 25 July 2008 (UTC)
