==Aequus156 and the new wiki==
 
 
From [[User_talk:Aequus156]], I see that s/he earlier today spammed the main page in order to promote his/her new ''The Casual Vacancy'' wiki. Sad to say, s/he has done it again, this time on the article page of the novel (as I said on [[Talk:The Casual Vacancy|the article's talk page]], one link on a page might be legitimate promotion but '''''three''''' is spamming), and even worse, removed the existing link to the older (and far better) wiki!
 
 
I think a ban is in order. Entirely up to you, of course. -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 15:40, October 20, 2012 (UTC)

==Re:Wikia Features / Congratulations==
 
I haven't been around in a while. My monitor burned out on me on Thursday (I think?), and I haven't been able to get a "new" one until today. It appears the discussion is still ongoing, so I'll leave my comments when I have the time.

== Vandal ban needed ==
 
 
Check [[Special:Contributions/217.23.233.106]]; this IP has today vandalised [[Talk:Main Page]], and a block is thus called for. I don't know how long a block is usually imposed on this wiki; in cases of mild to medium severity such as this, where the offender is anonymous, I usually give one or three months. -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 11:56, October 23, 2012 (UTC)

== Hi ==
 
 
First off.. hello. Second, congratulations on being made an administrator here on the Harry Potter Wiki. Third, I figured I'd tell you that chapters 12-18 will, if the ''Insider ''means ''exactly ''a week, be released on the eve before Hallowe'en. So yeah, that's about it.

:Hello (yes, this ''is ''Hunniebunn). I made a GIF for [[Shooting spell]], and here is the link: http://imgflip.com/i/57dn. I wondered if you knew how to download it onto here so that I could add it to the page? Thanks. [[Special:Contributions/173.33.132.248|173.33.132.248]] 04:26, October 24, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
::Actually, the video only showed the ground erupting slightly as though something had burrowed into it, when the spell was cast. I uploaded until Harry cast the spell on the rabbit (the second after it ran away, and the gun noise could be heard when Harry pointed his wand at it).

==Infobox problem==
 
Hey, I looked at [[Template:Individual infobox]]. <code><nowiki>{{{{{{2|name}}}}}}
 
</nowiki></code> should be replaced with either:
 
*<code><nowiki>{{{name|{{PAGENAME}}}}}</nowiki></code> - uses the page's name if no <code>name</code> parameter is used. This is standard practice.
 
or
 
*<code><nowiki>{{{name|}}}</nowiki></code> - uses just the <code>name</code> parameter.
 
Either one will fix your problem. [[User:Dzylon|Dzylon]] [[User_talk:Dzylon|(Talk)]] 02:32/October 25, 2012
 
 
:Sorry, replied on my page (force of habit after working on talkback-based wikis). Anyway... you have a message on [[User talk:Dzylon]]. | [[User:Dzylon|Dzylon]] [[User_talk:Dzylon|(Talk)]] 03:16/October 25, 2012
 
 
::Alright. Also, as my bot doesn't have a bot flag here, the changes made by it will flood RecentChanges and WikiActivity (though that shouldn't last long).

== ''Casual Vacancy'' wiki ==
 
 
I've now founded a third ''The Casual Vacancy'' wiki at [[w:c:tcv|tcv.wikia.com]]. As you can see, it has a much shorter URL than either of the others, making interwiki links a lot easier; I've also chosen a colour scheme which is at least an order of magnitude easier on the eyes than that of [[w:c:casual-vacancy]], and at least ''two'' orders of magnitude more readable than that of [[w:c:the-casual-vacancy]].
 
 
If you want to look at it, and possibly contribute, feel free. I've uploaded the favicon, but for some reason it isn't yet showing for me; I'm currently in the process of transferring the contents of the first TCV wiki, to get things started.
 
 
Of course, if the URL of the new wiki is to be added to this wiki's TCV page (replacing the present lnk?), that will have to be done by somebody else as I don't want to appear to be self-promoting (although, unlike another editor I won't name, I don't suffer the delusion that I "own" this wiki, merely becuse I founded it). -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 01:54, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
 
:After numerous tries, I've settled (for the time being) on a black-on-beige scheme. I've also turned off the background. Annoyingly, the favicon still isn't showing for me. -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 04:17, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
 
::'''''Your attention is needed:''''' I've just copied your [[w:c:tcv:Template:Quote|Template:Quote]] over to the new wiki, and there's a problem with it; the example given includes the template recursively, which is Not Allowed, so the intended result doesn't show properly. The result needs to be edited to use the markup instead of the template, but as I don't fully understand Parsertongue I don't know how to do this. Could you see to it? -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 04:59, October 27, 2012 (UTC)

== RE:Rollback ==
 
I appreciate the time you took to write to me, Professor, but I'm afraid that being admin and bureaucrat of two different sites and a casual editor on another two is quite enough responsibility as it is. Thanks, though. --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunniebunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 23:55, October 27, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:That's true; I suppose I'd best consider it.

== Red Sparks/Periculum ==
 
 
As you may have seen on the talk page for what is currently [[Red Sparks]], I have my doubts now that that and ''Periculum'' are the same. I would have renamed that page Periculum and made a new one for Red Sparks, but I can't as there's a redirect there. I wondered if perhaps now that you're an admin you can undo the redirect, or if perhaps there was something I'd been missing. --[[User:Hunnie Bunn|Hunniebunn]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|talk]]) 00:15, October 28, 2012 (UTC)

==Wikia&apos;s Time to Play==
 
Hey Tofty,
 
 
Wikia is rolling out a fun new initiative for the holiday season called “Time to Play” where we ask our wikis what page they’re most proud of. We want to know which page you would want to have represent {{SITENAME}}.
 
There will be an official blog going out on Nov. 1 but we wanted to reach out to you early and see if you were interested in participating now.
 
 
If you wanted to participate, a “Time to Play” badge would go up on the right rail of the mainpage that links users to the page that you choose, while the footer will live on that same page that links to hub pages eg. http://www.wikia.com/Entertainment for Time to Play goodies. You can see how the badge looks by clicking [http://images.wikia.com/communitytest/images/b/b7/Wikia_Timetoplay_RRBadge-292x90-1.png here] and how the footer will appear by clicking [http://images.wikia.com/communitytest/images/1/15/Wikia_Timetoplay_Blog_Footer-660x98-1.jpeg here].
 
 
We will feature {{SITENAME}} on http://www.wikia.com/Wikia in one the three biggest spots that we reserved for “Time to Play” participants on a rotating basis, as well as a feature on the hubs.
 
 
Let me know if you have any questions, I hope you decide to participate!

:Saw your comment to Kate, just wanted to give you a quick answer. As soon as you all figure out which article you&apos;d like to focus on just leave Kate a msg and we&apos;ll get you set up. We would love for your other wiki to participate, leave Kate a talk page msg there with a link to the article you choose, and we&apos;ll get that one set up for you too! [[User:Xean|<font color="Blue">Sena</font>]]<staff /> 01:37, October 31, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Fantastic, we&apos;ve put it live on Eternal Sonata Wiki and super excited that Harry Potter is excited to participate!

==RE:Pages for individual Daily Prophet articles==
  +
I don't think that it's going overboard myself, at least not considering we already have so many individual articles for [[:Category:Letters|letters]] and [[:Category:Essays|essays]] (some of which most minor indeed).
  +
To answer your question, yes, the articles are meant to supersede the [[Daily Prophet articles]] article (gosh, how many "articles" was I able to fit in one sentence!). As for their orphaned state, that can be arranged while the articles are being created. -- <small><span style="border:2px solid #333333;">[[User:Seth Cooper|<font style="color:#333333;">&nbsp;'''Seth Cooper'''&nbsp;</font>]][[User talk:Seth Cooper|<font style="background:#333333;color:white;">&nbsp;'''owl&nbsp;post!'''</font>]]</span></small> 00:54, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

==Fantasy Food Bracket Tournament==
  +
Hey, ProfessorTofty! We have a really fun bracket tournament coming up specifically for fantasy foods and we were hoping that you could help us promote it on the Harry Potter Wikia in a blog or something! You can find more information [http://recipes.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Asnow89/Fantasy_Food_Bracket_Tournament here] but we basically would love if every community on Wikia submitted their best fictional foods (ie. butterbeer/chocolate frogs/etc.) to compete in our Fantasy Food Fight to see what comes out on top! The submission period is underway so people can submit as many foods as they want in [http://recipes.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Asnow89/Fantasy_Food_Bracket_Tournament the main blog] now. It would be great if you could help us to promote, and we hope you'll participate too!

== Surprise ==

==Collector's Edition==
  +
Hi Professor,
   
Hello ProfessorTofty. Just wondered, have you checked the ''Pottermore Insider ''today? You'll find a surprise there. '''<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Chiller" size="6" color="#56LL99">Hunniebunn</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Chiller" size="5" color="#56LL99">Talk</font>]])'''

I contact you because i saw a discussion about the HP page to screen collector's edition and i just would like to know if the books will be available separately, if you've heard something about that?
   
== RE: Time ==
+
I'm a huge fan of HP, but i can't afford this beautiful edition, i have the HP page to screen, but the whole collection is too expansive for me!!! So the possibility to buy them separately will be great!!!
Yes, I'm quite looking forward to it. My only problem is.. school. I have to leave at 8:10 sharp to get to school on time, and so I'll be lucky to get through the chapters. And so I have to wait till after school so I can view them all simultaneously. Tell me how it goes, though - it sounds like fun. --'''<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Chiller" size="6" color="#56LL99">Hunniebunn</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Chiller" size="5" color="#56LL99">Talk</font>]])'''
 
:Another thing: We are at the end of the second book. The <nowiki>{{Pottermore}}</nowiki> template still exists and is used on pages with Pottermore content. What shall we do about it?

I'm wondering if I should have rollback rights on this wiki. I think I've done enough (good) edits by now to be a trusted user, especially since I'm only asking for rollback, not full admin (I have enough adminships to be getting on with). How does one request rollback rights here?
+
So i'll never see the contains of these books!!!
   
On another topic, has the colour scheme changed slightly? I think the red of the navigation bar, and the salmon-pink of the top bar on the edit page, makes a good contrast with the teal of the sky in the background graphic. -- [[User:RobertATfm|RobertATfm]] ([[User_talk:RobertATfm|talk]]) 10:31, October 31, 2012 (UTC)

#They have the exact same effect.
 
#General Counterspell was released with the second book on Pottermore, while Finite Incantatem was first shown in that same book.
 
#The length of the incantation matches the time it would take for one to move their wand as shown for the wand motion of the General Counter-Spell.
 
#GCS has an image on Pottermore, while Finite Incantatem doesn't - and Finite Incantatem is the only one without a wand motion.

==Salamander?==
Firstly, I would like to apologize for the trouble I've given you.
+
Hey :) I have a little problem, so I really need your opinion please :) As you can see [[Talk:Salamander|here]], I found a screen in PoA PC version which says red salamanders are Amazonian salamanders. However, in PoA GBA version, Seth found that Amazonian salamanders are green. So, easy question: what do we do now? And, do you think we must create a page for each salamander? Thank you for your answer :) [[Utilisateur:Lady_Junky|Lady]] [[Discussion utilisateur:Lady_Junky|Junky]] 02:20, August 25, 2013 (UTC)
However, my second point is that the way I was taught to make a merge was to copy all the information from one page, redirect the page you took the content from to the new page, and then incorporate both sets of info into a new article.

I've noticed some incorrect content both here and in the HP fandom at large. The image used of from the Daily Prophet cutting from the Weasleys' trip to Egypt does have Charlie Weasley in it. However, the person people assume is Charlie is, in fact, Percy. Not only is it actually a picture of the actor playing Percy, but the book mentions Percy wearing a fez in the photo. Additionally, if you look to the right in the back row, you find an unidentified Weasley who is of a stockier build, as described in the books. This Weasley, being the only unidentified one, can only be the real Charlie Weasley.

It was an image I came across on Pottermore.

==Wikia Guided Tours: "Children's Fantasy"==
   
==Mean==
+
My name’s Matt and I’m a community development associate for Wikia. I’m in charge of a monthly feature called “Guided Tours” where I interview experts on a given topic, asking questions about how they got into their area of expertise and how they recommend others do the same. Our next feature is going to be Children's Fantasy -- and Harry Potter definitely fits the bill! Personally, I think the best Children's Fantasy can and should be enjoyed by people of all ages and I'd like to get the word out about various quality series.

If you could provide answers, as short or long as you see fit, to the questions below, your responses will be featured in the article. Check out the [http://community.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Mhadick/Guided_Tour:_Space_Opera last Guided Tours article for an example.] If you don't have time for this at the moment, please let me know if another admin on your wiki is better suited for the interview.
   
== Remembrance Day ==

Thanks!
   
Hello Professor. I know you aren't all too familiar with Remembrance Day and hence it's probably not a thing you do all too thoroughly, but I figured I'd pass on [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrkgV5bl7kQ&feature=share this video] to you - it's quite inspiring and well sung. Thank you. --'''<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="6" color="Red">Remember</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Red">Least We Forget</font>]])''' 22:26, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

1. Tell me a bit about yourself and your involvement with the Harry Potter wiki.
   
:Really? That's quite interesting - sometimes people here in Canada call it Veteran's Day, Soldier's Day, or even Anti-War Day, though mostly it remains Remembrance Day. You'd never believe it, but this morning we had a soldier whose family was from Ohio come to my school; he was raised in Canada but born in Ohio. I find that quite interesting, considering where you live. --'''<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="6" color="Red">Remember</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Red">Least We Forget</font>]])''' 22:40, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

2. How did you get into children's fantasy? Into Harry Potter?
   
==U.S. Veteran's Day==
+
3. How would you recommend a beginner get into Children's Fantasy? Any particular books/movies/comics/TV shows/games/etc. that would serve as a good starting point?
Hi, I read your message on Hunnie Bunn's page. He sent me the video, too. Have you looked already? Wonderful music, but serious theme. I like the end line of the video very much but I don't want to tell too much when you perhaps have not seen yet. That's interesting that the Remembrance Day in Canada is the same as your U.S. Veteran's Day. You knew it without knowing that you knew it. Different names - same theme. <span style="border:1px solid #E56717;">[[User:Harry granger|<font style="background:#F75D59;color:gold;">&nbsp;'''Harry granger'''&nbsp;</font>]][[User talk:Harry granger|<font style="background:yellow;color:black;">&nbsp;''' Talk&nbsp;'''</font>]]<font style="background:yellow;color:;">&nbsp;[[Special:Contributions/Harry granger|<font style="background: #99CCFF;color:#993300;">&nbsp;'''contribs''']] </font style></font></span> 22:37, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

4. Anything you wouldn’t recommend?
   
You have a good ear - it wasn't until I saw the cutscene with the people playing the bagpipes that I realized that's what it was. But yes, the bagpipes ''and'' the accordion simultaneously were being played. As for Canadian entertainment and such, I've watched the Red Green Show once, but I'm not that big of a fan of television. I'm more of a literature or music sort of guy. Then again, if LMFAO represents this century's music, it's quite pitiful. --'''<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Red">Remember</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Red">Least We Forget</font>]])''' 23:31, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

:There is nothing in the game proper (the parts that I have seen thus far, that is) that says that the ''Book of Spells'' is 200-years-old (when you are introduced to it, it is covered in dust, and it is mentioned that it is "very old", but nothing more). There is an event (I'm earnestly trying not to spoil you, here) mentioned to have happened in 1779, and the text refers to the late 18th century as "relatively recently in wizarding history" -- I wouldn't think a book would refer to something that happened a mere twenty years ago as "''relatively'' recent", instead choosing the word "contemporaneously", but perhaps that's just me.
+
== Featured article ==
:My possible explanations are: the "200-year-old-book-thing" was something that the game developers/producers had in mind when creating the look and feel of the game, but did not treat that as rock-solid fact (out-of-universe explanation); or, that the game is set sometime after 2121 (in-universe explanation). -- <small><span style="border:2px solid #333333;">[[User:Seth Cooper|<font style="color:#333333;">&nbsp;'''Seth Cooper'''&nbsp;</font>]][[User talk:Seth Cooper|<font style="background:#333333;color:white;">&nbsp;'''owl&nbsp;post!'''</font>]]</span></small> 16:34, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, ProfessorTofty!

It's part of a fun project we're doing so I was wondering if you could promote/highlight the blog on the community just so people will see it? Hope that's alright!

The first name of the teammate [[Inigo Fuente Marrero]], the similarity in sound of "Tiago" and "Inigo" and the obvious sense of humour of the Quidditch World Cup developers, especially in their naming of characters (such as [[Denison Frisby]], [[Katrina von Glockenspieler]] & [[Kelly Whakkaarangapawarau]]) make me pretty sure that this was a deliberate pop culture reference (maybe it's a generational thing?).

Hello. I've been helping with the orphaned pages, linking them to other articles. However, when I go back on to the orphaned pages list I find that ones that have already linked are still there. Do you know why? --<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Black">This is an automatically sent message.</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Black">You can reply here</font>]]) 17:22, November 24, 2012 (UTC)</span>

To celebrate the upcoming release of I, Frankenstein, between the dates of 1/20 and 1/24, Wikia is inviting our premier communities to utilize some custom CSS to make their website appear “Gothic.” From old style fonts to dark color configurations, there are going to be a number of visual flourishes for our users to employ. Is this something you think your community will be interested in taking part in? Can you think of anything specific you’d like to add? Let me know!

==Wikia's Gothic Community Takeover==
   
== Hi ==
+
Hey there! You might already be aware of this, but Wikia is currently running a contest where we're asking communities to Gothify their Wikias, similar to how Wikias changed up their look for Halloween, and we think it's something that your community will find interesting. Head over [http://movies.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:Mhadick/Wikia%27s_Gothic_Community_Takeover here] for details! If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.
Hello Professor. Sorry to bother you, but I have a few queries.<br/>First of all, I realize that tomorrow you're going to be unavailable (traveling to wikia headquarters, I believe?), so I figured I'd wish you best of luck in whatever awaits you.<br/>However, my other purpose in writing is to ask whether you would have a problem with my integrating the information from the page "Smokescreen Spell" into the page "Patronus Charm", per my logic given on the talk page for "Smokescreen Spell" (seen [[Talk:Smokescreen Spell|here]]). Of course it will wait until tomorrow, but I wanted to see whether you would give a thumbs-up or not. --<span style="font-size:9pt;line-height:0.56cm;">[[User:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Black">This is an automatically sent message.</font>]] ([[User talk:Hunnie Bunn|<font face="Times" size="3" color="Black">You can reply here</font>]]) 02:22, November 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, ProfessorTofty! I am reaching out to see what you think about maybe giving the Harry Potter Wikia a small makeover. I've also reached out to [[User:Seth Cooper|Seth Cooper]] about this, but I haven't heard back yet so I wanted to know what your opinion was! This community has grown a lot since it was first founded, but the look of the wikia hasn't changed that much (aside from the switches to the theme during holidays). We were wondering if you and the rest of the Harry Potter community would like the idea of refreshing the wikia's look with maybe a new skin and wordmark, and maybe even redesigning the main page a little bit so all the same information is still displayed but in a more visually pleasing way?

Hi, ProfessorTofty!
 
   
I just wanted to let you know that we are going to start implementing the video methods that were discussed when you visited our office! To remind you, we will be doing the bulk of the work by finding relevant great videos and embedding them on the wiki. We will also update a part of the Community Messages, and create a rotating gallery of videos on the main page. The example of the rotating gallery can be seen here: http://ninokuni.wikia.com/wiki/Ni_No_Kuni_Wiki
+
I hoped it could be resolved through discussion but now that seems not likely. I feel that [[User:MinorStoop]] is giving me a hard time about editing without fully explaining what it is that is upsetting him.
   
Let us know if you have any more questions or concerns!

Could I have assistance in resolving this matter?

RE:Pages for individual Daily Prophet articlesEdit

I don't think that it's going overboard myself, at least not considering we already have so many individual articles for letters and essays (some of which most minor indeed). To answer your question, yes, the articles are meant to supersede the Daily Prophet articles article (gosh, how many "articles" was I able to fit in one sentence!). As for their orphaned state, that can be arranged while the articles are being created. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:54, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

The layout guide advises against using links within a quote, "unless it is the only mention in the article of a certain subject". Personally, I'd try to mention the subject on the main article (and link it there) first, only linking within the quote as a last resort (to avoid awkward wording or something of the sort). --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:05, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Fantasy Food Bracket TournamentEdit

Hey, ProfessorTofty! We have a really fun bracket tournament coming up specifically for fantasy foods and we were hoping that you could help us promote it on the Harry Potter Wikia in a blog or something! You can find more information here but we basically would love if every community on Wikia submitted their best fictional foods (ie. butterbeer/chocolate frogs/etc.) to compete in our Fantasy Food Fight to see what comes out on top! The submission period is underway so people can submit as many foods as they want in the main blog now. It would be great if you could help us to promote, and we hope you'll participate too!

Collector's EditionEdit

Hi Professor,

I contact you because i saw a discussion about the HP page to screen collector's edition and i just would like to know if the books will be available separately, if you've heard something about that?

I'm a huge fan of HP, but i can't afford this beautiful edition, i have the HP page to screen, but the whole collection is too expansive for me!!! So the possibility to buy them separately will be great!!!

Thank you in advance

re edition's collector Edit

Thank you anyway!!!

Have a nice day!!!

Two categories with different spelling for the same thingEdit

Hi, can you have a look here and tell me what you think about this? Thanks.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 20:26, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

Salamander?Edit

Hey :) I have a little problem, so I really need your opinion please :) As you can see here, I found a screen in PoA PC version which says red salamanders are Amazonian salamanders. However, in PoA GBA version, Seth found that Amazonian salamanders are green. So, easy question: what do we do now? And, do you think we must create a page for each salamander? Thank you for your answer :) Lady Junky 02:20, August 25, 2013 (UTC)

XD Okay x) Sorry :P Lady Junky 02:31, August 25, 2013 (UTC)

Again :PEdit

I will annoy you a bit more, sorry :) Category_talk:Candidates_for_renaming#Quidditch_Cup I know it is an old discussion, but do you think it could be closed now? :) Thank you again and sorry ^^' Lady Junky 02:38, August 25, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Hunter Mariner IIEdit

Fair enough. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:25, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

I went ahead and reported them (all of them) to the VSTF. Hopefully they can do a range block on their IP to keep them from doing this again. - Nick O'Demus 08:00, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Will the REAL Charlie Weasley please stand up Edit

I've noticed some incorrect content both here and in the HP fandom at large. The image used of from the Daily Prophet cutting from the Weasleys' trip to Egypt does have Charlie Weasley in it. However, the person people assume is Charlie is, in fact, Percy. Not only is it actually a picture of the actor playing Percy, but the book mentions Percy wearing a fez in the photo. Additionally, if you look to the right in the back row, you find an unidentified Weasley who is of a stockier build, as described in the books. This Weasley, being the only unidentified one, can only be the real Charlie Weasley.

RE:Image policyEdit

Yes, I have a few questions :) Could you come on the tchat, please? :) Lady Junky 00:52, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

Chapter?Edit

On which chapter is Quirinus Quirrell mentioned by Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix? I can't find it. I have the Bloomsbury Publishing edition with Fawkes on the cover. --Station7 (talk) 08:32, August 28, 2013 (UTC)

WHO?Edit

I found a little information on the wiki: Slytherin_Quidditch_team#Members_of_Slytherin_team during 1991/1992 team. Crick Shabes. Who is that? Do we have a link or a source for him? I don't know that character :x Lady Junky 00:34, August 29, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Order of the Phoenix photographEdit

    	Yes check  	  	       Done. I've been away for the last couple of days; how did we manage to identify him anyway? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:25, August 29, 2013 (UTC)
Right. Thanks! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:46, August 29, 2013 (UTC)

Wikia Guided Tours: "Children's Fantasy"Edit

My name’s Matt and I’m a community development associate for Wikia. I’m in charge of a monthly feature called “Guided Tours” where I interview experts on a given topic, asking questions about how they got into their area of expertise and how they recommend others do the same. Our next feature is going to be Children's Fantasy -- and Harry Potter definitely fits the bill! Personally, I think the best Children's Fantasy can and should be enjoyed by people of all ages and I'd like to get the word out about various quality series.

If you could provide answers, as short or long as you see fit, to the questions below, your responses will be featured in the article. Check out the last Guided Tours article for an example. If you don't have time for this at the moment, please let me know if another admin on your wiki is better suited for the interview.

Thanks!

1. Tell me a bit about yourself and your involvement with the Harry Potter wiki.

2. How did you get into children's fantasy? Into Harry Potter?

3. How would you recommend a beginner get into Children's Fantasy? Any particular books/movies/comics/TV shows/games/etc. that would serve as a good starting point?

4. Anything you wouldn’t recommend?

5. Any additional advice you’d give to someone new to Children's Fantasy?

6. What resources on your wiki might be useful to an aspiring Children's Fantasy fan?

Thanks again,
Mhadick (talk) 21:36, September 19, 2013 (UTC)

Featured article Edit

So, what do you think should we do with our FAs? I think the article about the baron has been featured for months now. I will also send a massege to Seth Cooper.--Rodolphus (talk) 13:32, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

User HelgenEdit

As you can see from his talk page and his comment to a warning of mine, Mr Helgen is not interested in becoming a helpful member of this community; I think therefore that a block is warranted.

If approved, it is of course the operating admin's privilege to determine the block's length, but having met the likes of him on other wikis, and found them very hard to deal with, I'll take the liberty of recommending to start with a 1-to-3 months period.

MinorStoop 17:28, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

P.S. The pages Whisky and Firewhisky need to be moved back to their original spelling - I can't do it myself I can't delete Whiskey and Firewhiskey, now redirects that stand in the way. Thanks.

RE:Me being a possible Troll or Vandal. Edit

Look, I mean no harm and I mean nothing bad on the wiki, so sorry if I do anything wrong. I do not mean to vandalise the wiki, which people like Seth Cooper and Hunnie Bunn think, Helgen. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Helgen (talkcontribs).

Harry Potter WishlistsEdit

Hey, ProfessorTofty! I just put up this blog asking users to share what items they would put on a Harry Potter wishlist (blog found here).
