New Template?

Hi Professor. I see there's been a number of users over the time this wiki has existed who have been taking things waay too personally, or who have made personal attacks. I was thinking of making a template, like:
"Chill out, dude! You're taking everything way too seriously. Please calm down."
with a little red hand on the left. What do you think? --Hunnie Bunn 01:15, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

I like your idea better. So, I suppose I'd best get started. --Hunnie Bunn 01:33, March 12, 2013 (UTC)
Admittedly, it is a copy-and-paste of what you wrote on my talk page, but all the same: here it is. The code to produce it is {{Temper}} (not too sure if that's the best name for it). And sure, that shouldn't be too difficult (for the QotW).
PS: Have you ever heard this song? My best friend's uncle is the lead singer. And I find the song quite calming (nothing personal, of course) --Hunnie Bunn 01:43, March 12, 2013 (UTC)
No problem, and sorry about not changing the headers - I'd wondered what they were for. And glad you liked the song; admittedly, though, your tune is quite relaxing - additionally, it has a nice rhythm to it. --Hunnie Bunn 13:13, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, after I read about your "relaxing songs" I was curious and heard them both. I like them both. Yours is very meditative. This song I could hear for hours, days, weeks, but the other I like, too.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 16:24, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Re: Relaxing songs

Thank you for the new songs. When I've found them AND get again access to another computer like today I will try them. My own computer loudspeakers have said good-bye, so I need another.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 18:32, March 12, 2013 (UTC)

Hi, I've heard now "To Zanarkand" and one of "Rikku's Theme"s. They are both wonderful. I like this music, too. It is really relaxing, that's right. Thank you for the advice.

Template, Part II

Sorry, I forgot to respond the first time. Yes, I think it would be a good idea to put the song in with the template... but would the coding carry it properly? I don't trust computers and coding and such things too well. --Hunnie Bunn 18:23, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

I like it, actually. It was surprising how well the calming melody went with the professional tone of the warning message. --Hunnie Bunn 18:32, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
Hey, that's a classic melody to Template:Temper. Wonderful!

Bridge Scene

And I had another question. Have you seen the third film (I don't want to give too many spoilers)? --Hunnie Bunn 18:32, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

Just wondering, what did you think when you saw the scene on the bridge? With Lupin talking about Lily? --Hunnie Bunn 18:47, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
That's true; there was indeed quite a bit of "good stuff" in the films (especially, methinks, in the third one). I agree with most of what you said, but Rowling said Sirius was "unhinged" - he saw his best friend in pain, not a feral monster getting ready to shred everyone apart. I don't blame him for his actions, even if perhaps they weren't the most sensible.
As for the bridge scene, I'll admit the "Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn't see it in themselves" line(s) kind of reminded me of the "Lupin was very fond of Lily" line, and I have to wonder whether J. K. Rowling will expand on this in Lupin's biography. --Hunnie Bunn 19:06, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
Well, we did get the info on Aunt Marge, the Knight Bus and Cadogan, as well as Professor Kettleburn in the first set of chapters. But all the same, there are twenty-two chapters in the book, and there's an illustration from the fourteenth one in there which means we'll be getting at least six chapters. Leaving eight chapters after that, and a whole biography. So hopefully they'll come out soon.
Do you have an estimate as to when you think they'll be released? It's been around two months (now I stop to think about it, closer to three) so probably soon. I'm guessing the twentieth if we're lucky (because it's usually around the end of the month) and April 12 if we aren't (because it's normally on a Friday that they're released). --Hunnie Bunn 20:19, March 13, 2013 (UTC)
It wouldn't be half as aggravating if they would update the Insider to let us know what they're up to or something. Last we heard was a couple of weeks ago when they improved the comments, and I don't understand the way people will sign comments with names that have nothing to do with themselves or their friends... Oh well, it's only the 13th. Hopefully some change will come soon. --Hunnie Bunn 20:29, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

Page complaint

Hi, I don't know if BachLynn is online and reads this, so I thought I tell you. Look this here. That could be a critical situation.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 17:11, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Pottermore

Chapters eight to fifteen will be released either in eleven days or by the end of the month :) Trivia questions regarding said chapters will be posted at noon EST on the Insider daily starting tomorrow. --Hunnie Bunn 18:38, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Glad to be of help. I'm thinking it'll be twelve days till the new chapters come out, seeing how they'll be going for ten days starting tomorrow, and then they'll be keeping the answers secret until after. Now I'm just trying to get through all that by tomorrow morning (shouldn't be too hard, it's only seven chapters). --Hunnie Bunn 19:00, March 14, 2013 (UTC)

Quidditch teams with robes mess

I believe this edit was the source of the problem, so I've reverted it and deleted the categories.

While we're on the subject, I think at some point we need to have a discussion about notability and standards for categories too. Some of the ones we have now seem ridiculously over-specific and/or redundant. Case in point, right now there are Category:Dragons, Category:Dragons (species), and Category:Individual dragons. I'm probably going to go ahead and consolidate them into just "Dragons" and delete the other two.

Hagrid's Hut

Hi Professor. Just wondered whether you could please rename Rubeus Hagrid's cabin to "Hagrid's Hut" as it is referred as such in Pottermore, the most recent canon source. Thanks. --Hunnie Bunn 20:19, March 16, 2013 (UTC)

Here we go :) --Hunnie Bunn 20:47, March 16, 2013 (UTC)
Well, I'd assumed "HAGRID'S WOODEN HOUSE" was from the line "Hagrid, you live in a wooden house". --Hunnie Bunn 21:07, March 16, 2013 (UTC)
The line was from the first book, the "HAGRID'S WOODEN HOUSE" title was for a moment from that same book (and I think from that same chapter) and therefore the two go together:) --Hunnie Bunn 22:24, March 16, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you :)--Hunnie Bunn 13:16, March 17, 2013 (UTC)

Time-Turner

Hi Professor. It's been two months (actually, I think three) since the last Time-Turner article (the only two are Moldyshorts and Harry). I already have one for Dumbledore ready if you want, coding and everything are done. However, if you have an idea of your own I think that would be good. So I suppose come morning we'll see how things turn out, hopefully it's all good :) --Am I annoying you yet? If not, let me know when I am. 01:51, March 18, 2013 (UTC)
