RE: Unsupported flight

Yeah, thanks for the appreciation! I was tempted to just redirect it to Flying, but I found that said article focuses on magical flight in general, rather than the specific method invented by Voldemort. The article admittedly still needs some work however, mostly references and stuff.

And I honestly don't know the character at all, nor the Final Fantasy series in general that well. I just think it looks cool. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 00:50, July 2, 2012 (UTC)

Broken links

Sorry, I didn't know that was possible. Thank you for telling me, I check the web archive from now on ;) -- PerryPeverell 09:58, July 29, 2012 (UTC)

Unidentified Hogwarts Professors

Thanks a lot! It's more work than it looks, though -- I spent a good more-than-three hours doing it, and it's still not done yet. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:01, July 31, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Assistance

I know I've been a right pain in the arse for you, and I'm terribly sorry about that, but I just thought I'd let you know how much I appreciate your assistance in all that which you've helped me with. Again, sorry to be so aggravating, even if it isn't intentional. 99.252.196.61 03:49, August 1, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, this is Hermione99 I am absolutely sorry about that, but you mind explaining on how edit properly, I've seen your profile and there are not much pictures but lots of articles. Is that the point of editing?Putting less images and typing more articles?? Please reply as I have just joined wikia.com. Thanks anyway! :) Hermione99 (talk) 10:40, August 8, 2012 (UTC)Hermione99

Deletion of fanon warning

Quite a while ago, I recieved a fanon warning from you regarding the Malfoy family edits. As the information on the articles was correct and not fanon, am I allowed to delete my fanon warning on my talk page? It looks kind of annoying. SorenaJ (talk) 17:37, August 13, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Improving a Fanon Article

I do understand what you mean, and you're right, it will get deleted soon, as the delete template has been there a while, but there's something about seeing it deleted with all those errors that just didn't seem right to me. Maybe it's just me, but oh well... besides, I couldn't think of anything else to do... Cheers :) Hunnie Bunn (talk) 05:21, August 18, 2012 (UTC)

File:File:3.gif

I think there is a problem with that image. You put it on the page Beauxbatons carriage, but it shows Fawkes.
 Harry granger   Talk  contribs 18:41, August 19, 2012 (UTC)

What do you mean with refresh? Another clicking on the page? That I've done. I already see Fawkes.
 Harry granger   Talk  contribs 19:15, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
When you look in the file history of this image I think there is the solution of the problem.
 Harry granger   Talk  contribs 19:38, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, the last tip worked. Now I see the carriage. 79.203.6.179 20:23, August 19, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, that was me - 79.203.6.179 - I overlooked that the browser cache logged me out.

Stubs

Sorry, I only just saw what you put after I added the stubs for the other two. I guess you do things differently on this wiki then the others that I am on. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 22:00, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Right well anyway if you feel so strongly about it then take it up with the admins on those wikis. Sorry again. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 22:09, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Blocking

Just wondering, couldn't you know who just say he's from China or wherever if you block Denmark? Then you'd have to unblock Denmark and block China, then he'd change it to somewhere else, and you probably get the idea. Also, are we sure he's still doing stuff he shouldn't? He sounded quite sincere when he apologized on his talk page... I left this message on Nick O'Demus' talk page, but I figured as you're 'active', I'd ask you the same thing. 174.115.144.39 22:30, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

RE: RE: Blocking

I'm fairly certain you're talking about who I'm talking about. Anywho, I only mentioned the countries because (although it might have been a sarcastic remark) one of the admins said that they might have to go so far as to block the whole of Denmark. Also, isn't it true that the first three numbers of an IP adress (like the one I used in my first few messages to you because my laptop keeps logging me out) represent the country? Cheers, Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:19, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

RE: IPs

Thanks for all your help, it's nice to get all that straightened out. Just too bad about You-Know-Who (though I'm not all too sure you know who you-know-who is), though... Cheers, hunniebunn (owl) 23:33, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

RE: You-Know-Who

Okay, I just figured I'd clarify. Anywho, thanks for all your help, it's been... well, not really 'fun', but close enough. hunniebunn (talk) 23:40, August 26, 2012 (UTC)

Non-notable article?

Yeah, how come? I really don't see a problem with it... I mean it is exactly the same style as Unidentified St. Mungo's patient (II). Rainbow Shifter (talk) 00:27, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

But there is notible information about the character on there and there's a whole paragraph about her in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. There is enough information on there to have a decent article given the amount of information in the books, films, games, stc. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 00:46, August 28, 2012 (UTC)
Well I don't remember reading about many unidentified patients with a chunk missing from their leg. On the page there's not just basic information but other, extra information that does distinguish her from others. Rainbow Shifter (talk) 00:54, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Wrock bands

Hi! Sorry about that, I must've skipped your previous message. Yeah, definitely, we should redirect those articles like I did with the Hogwarts employees ones.

By the way, sorry if I sounded too harsh, but I had to put an end to it. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:38, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry

Sorry, about the unblock messages. I'm always telling them NOT to leave messages for me on this wiki, but it seems they are not listening to me. I no longer contribute to this wiki thats why I don't wish for them to leave messages for me here. If they continue to request for me to unlbock them I will delete them. Thank you.

Demonstrate understanding

How do you mean by saying demonstrate an understanding when editing. Do you mean post a summary everytime I edit, or what? --94.191.184.145 15:03, September 5, 2012 (UTC)

... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:47, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
I ask for advice because I deeply regret what I've done, and a blocking is the result. Does it feel good to have power?? You are so rude, all of you. --94.191.187.201 05:08, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

RE:75.74.65.243

Yes check Done. Nice work with the article, by the way. I guess it was our fault to have neglected to keep it clear of advertisement and highly opinionated descriptions for so long. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:31, September 8, 2012 (UTC)

Despite the fact the most recent activity on some of them dated back to the 1860s... :P

Merge

I already asked 1337star about this yesterday, but I never did get a response and I was rather curious about how long, in your opinion, I should wait before, having presented various facts as to why I believe that Jelly-Legs Jinx and Jelly-Legs Curse, merging the two articles. I understand that some people won't like my opinion, and will most undoubtedly attempt to dissuade me, but as I have yet to meet any resistance on the matter, I wondered how long I should wait before going ahead. By the way, pardon if my spelling and grammar aren't properly "British" or what you might want to call it. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 16:53, September 9, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Harry Potter Limited Edition

Heh, not so much research as perusing the newest news items on Snitchseeker, but yeah. Anyway, about all I can see about an international release is that the Amazon page says "3000 copies worldwide". All I know is I'm not getting one. Way, way, way too expensive. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 21:31, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

RE:Danniesen

If you want the bigger picture, you should read this. We, basically, are awaiting more information from Grunny to make sure these can be traced back to Denmark.

Either way, I am, too, starting to lose my patience at his displays of folly and presumptuousness and I am effectively starting to block those IPs that have "Danniesen trying to circumvent his ban" written all over them (quite literally; he managed to sign his name quite a few times on talk page), under HPW:SOCK. I'm not sure it is at all desirable to perform a range block of such dimension that it can prevent a legitimate user from editing the wiki when they have done nothing to deserve that, however. If anything, we must see that he understands that we are actually doing something to try and stop him, in order to strip him of his feeling of impunity. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:24, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

I am not at all trying to irritate you people. I'm just trying to put up some ideas, but almost all of them are turned down. Also, I can't control that the user changes itself, it is something it does automatically. I'm just trying to be a "part of the game". If you could explain what I do wrong it would be great, because I'm only trying to help. --94.191.186.125 05:12, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Orphaned pages

That sounds like quite an interesting topic and I've heard you talk about it before. I'm quite interested and I'll see what I can do! ;)

Rollback

Hello, Professor Tofty. I recently read an article about "Rollback", which is a function on the wiki which allows one to easily revert blatant vandalism quickly and effectively. I then read that you were a user with "Rollback rights", and wondered whether you would recommend my asking for "Rollback rights" in order for me to better abet the wiki; would it be worthwhile, and is there any sort of qualifications required? Thanks. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:04, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thanks. So... just to clarify, I'm supposed to ask Grunny?Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:36, September 15, 2012 (UTC)
Er... I'm probably starting to get annoying now, but... do I put the message on the page itself or on the talk page? Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:55, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you Professor Tofty. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:08, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

Everything

This is gonna be kinda long, so sorry, but anyways... 1) I don't know how you can look at thiswithoutgettingaheadache, much less edit it... do you think we ought to do alphabetical order within each type, or are you thinking of something different? I could always help, it'd give me a break from the other project. 2) Sorry I forgot about the orphaned pages, I'll get back to it soon, though... 3) I was debating starting another project... like, making an article with all the new content from Pottermore(I think Nick O'Demus started something similar, I'm not sure). Would such a page be allowed? 4) Whilst doing all this, I was also thinking perhaps of adding a few images from Pottermore, I figured I'd give you a heads up. I'll be doing most of it tomorrow, though, it's sort of late here and there's some other stuff I wanted to get done --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:50, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

I was wondering... how would I do the latter part? Would I create a new article and call it, for example, "Peeves/Pottermore Transcription? Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:23, September 16, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. Thanks for all your help, Professor. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:50, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Your answer to this user on my talk page

That's the only point where I am not sure. But is it o. k. to make a new account when your old got warnings which you have deleted what's definitely not allowed? I am not sure. So I think that's the decision of special users. What do you think?  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 21:10, September 16, 2012 (UTC)

Vandal

Professor Tofty, Sorry to bother you, but recently an anon has decided to vandalise Bellatrix Lestrange's page. The problem is, if I try to undo their edit, it shows another vandalism. If I try to undo that one, it says I can't because of "conflicting intermediate edits". Is there anything that can be done? Thanks :) --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 16:04, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. Hunnie Bunn (talk) 16:36, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

Re: Anton Potter

I've blocked him for two weeks. If he continues his behavior regarding his talk page, I or one of the other admins can block him longer. --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 17:12, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Wiki with Stuff Only About the Books

Hello, Professor Tofty. I wondered... is there any wiki related to Harry Potter series, but with information only from the books and not the films or games or interviews and what not? Thanks :) Hunnie Bunn (talk) 20:33, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Hm... I don't suppose it could hurt to look around it and if I feel it's worth my time then I'll take it on. I'm almost done my cleanup on the List of spells, and after that I'll probably just be reverting minor vandalism, contributing to talk pages, and adding new content from Pottermore if need be. Thanks --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:26, September 23, 2012 (UTC)
Actually, I think that with a lot of work that wiki might actually go somewhere. Would I be allowed making a blog post (I think that's what they're called) asking people if they want to help improve (in other words, create) that wiki? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:18, September 23, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, thanks. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:27, September 23, 2012 (UTC)

Delete tag

I just saw the Delete tag on the Griffindor tower category, and I can see that it took you a lot of work to finish. I just wondered if it would be better to create a Delete tag that was about categories or just edit in the existing Delete tag to also involve categories? --95.209.223.223 18:16, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

I just asked if we should create a Delete tag about categories or add it into the existing one. --95.209.223.223 18:29, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Yes. It is used. But you wrote all information from the tag's own page. All you had to do is write 'Cfd' and the reason, nothing else. --95.209.223.223 18:55, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Re: Hey?!

What exactly do you mean. I just moved information, I didn't remove it. --95.209.223.223 19:06, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for the warming

Thank you for informaing me. I wasn't aware. I shall attemenpt to finish off my profile in a few last edits and then I shall continue contributing elsewhere. My profile has been a place to experiment with formats as much as everything due to the fact I didn't know a great deal at all in terms of formatting etc. Thank you again and I hope I can turn to you for guidence at a later point in time. :) ZRSFizzyBongs (talk) 20:46, September 26, 2012 (UTC)

So that's what it's for! Thank you! I kept seeing it and clicking on the link but I didn't understand it's purpose or it's use. :D I feel like an idiot, but I've been off school for a week with flu so I allowed to be. :) Have a great day! ZRSFizzyBongs (talk) 20:57, September 26, 2012 (UTC)

Infobox Names

I mean no offence, but I was using source mode to begin with. I fixed the Katrina page, but there are a few I need to get to.The names have been removed, and in at least two instances the genders have been changed. As I do not own the games, I cannot verify and rely on others for this sort of information. Hunniebunn (talk) 01:58, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Oh; my apologies. I wasn't aware.. thanks. :) Hunniebunn (talk) 02:14, September 29, 2012 (UTC)

Awareness alert

Thank you for setting the Harry Potter Daily News Chapter 3 o book 1 page for deletion. However the author was the creator of a similar page that I myself recommended for deletion a few days ago. It wasn't hard to figure out the connection since I also wrote something similar for reason on deleting that page. -Adv193 (talk) 15:22, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks but just remember I was giving you the heads up and I sent a message to that user afterwards as a warning. -Adv193 (talk) 16:04, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Knowing Danniesen

No offense, but how exactly do you know that the user who commented on the talk page for A Brief History of Time was Danniesen and not some poor anonymous user? Hunniebunn (talk) 21:17, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I see. Thanks, I'll remember that. Glad to see he's so keen to start over being more responsible. --Hunniebunn (talk) 23:52, October 3, 2012 (UTC)

Re:Test

Yes, I received the standard notification I normally do when my talk page is edited. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:19, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Alright, go ahead. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:29, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Yep, that still gives a notification too. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 23:45, October 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks

Thanks for fixing the link. I'm just using different codes and things to try and fix up an experiment im conducting on my profile so I've just been ignored it, i guess :) ZRSFizzyBongs (talk) 06:39, October 5, 2012 (UTC)

Re. Infobox name removal

O. k., thanks. Then let us hope the source mode does help. That would be one more cause to block the visual mode.  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 21:02, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

Visual Editor/Forum

Hello ProfessorTofty, and how are you? I wondered, is there any way to disable the visual editor (either wiki-wide or simply for one's own benefit) without constantly clicking the "Source" tab? Thank you. --Hunniebunn (talk) 21:17, October 6, 2012 (UTC) EDIT: By the way, I wondered if you could please provide your opinion for this topic here, as nobody has so far. Much thanks! --Hunniebunn (talk) 21:18, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thank you very much... I prefer this "source mode". Also, I appreciate your taking the time to read the post, as it is on a failing wiki that does not have very many editors. --Hunniebunn (talk) 21:26, October 6, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks

I alwas try and enter 'name=so and so' but it never saves. ive found source editor so thanks for the guidence. :) ZRSFizzyBongs (talk) 17:28, October 7, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Appearances

Yes, Professor, it's me. You see, the cops are after me and I need to go undercover. I'll be back online soon. But yeah, I'm afraid I don't know what appearances you're talking about. If you're talking about to the Bespectacled Slytherin girl's page, then it may have been me, I hadn't really done much other than adding the

Curses and Counter-Curses
Spells included in the book: Full Body-Bind Curse · Leg-Locker Curse · Jelly-Legs Curse · Pimple Jinx · Stickfast Hex · Tickling Hex · Tongue-Tying Curse · Hair Loss Curse

template in the past few hours. --174.115.144.39 02:31, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

I haven't the slightest idea what 'facetious' means, but here in Canada - in Ontario, at the least - it's somewhat of a joke, if you've accidentally mistranscribed someone's name or written your own differently from normal, to say that the cops are after you. Anywho, no, I do know how to add appearances to a page, I just figured it'd be better to add a template for such things as Magical Drafts and Potions and The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection (both of which I'll get to by Monday night at the latest). 174.115.144.39 04:01, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, I see. And I do try to use my account, but with my laptop, every time I press the "Publish" or "Save" buttons (save isn't on the wiki, I don't think) it logs me out of whatever I'm logged in as. I get tired of logging out all the time and eventually decided just to leave it as is on here. 174.115.144.39 04:07, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

I downloaded the new Google Chrome last week, since that's what I use on my computer, and it's been working the same way except for this. I'll check the "cookie" settings and maybe have a glass of milk with it. Thanks. 174.115.144.39 04:13, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Real world subject template

Ah okay, I didn't know about the talk page thing. I'm mostly active on Bulbapedia, and there the rule is to keep conversations on the same page so that other users can read and even enter the discussion more easily. I know that it varies from wiki-to-wiki which format is preferred though. SnorlaxMonster (talk) 11:16, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

Wonderbook

I found a video you might be interested in, regarding Wonderbook: Book of Spells. You can view it here, starting at around 10:30. It goes over some of the basic concepts of creating Wonderbook, and then proceeds to give a demonstration. --Hunniebunn (talk) 22:59, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

RE: Wonderbook

No problem. And you're lucky... just too bad they don't have Wonderbook for PlayStation 2, then I'd stand a chance at buying it. Oh well, I can always watch videos of it on YouTube :P --Hunniebunn (talk) 02:07, October 14, 2012 (UTC)
