RE:The death of Tom riddle sr.

I'm terribly sorry, I was trying to revert an unhelpful edit to the article and ended up mixing up the dates. Sorry about that. I'll revert my edit right away. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:20, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Your opinon

Not really, no. Arthur Weasley worked at the Ministry at that time too and would that make him a Death Eater Allie? I'll remove it. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:47, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Harfang Longbottom's son

You're absolutely right! Thanks for pointing that out. Next time, remember to be bold! =) --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:52, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Well she is Rolf's great-great-grandmother. Why wouldn't she be on there? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:52, December 7, 2009 (UTC)


Hello Ratneer,

I see you're a (relatively) new user here, but you've already made some remarkable contributions. I just wanted to say Hi, and keep up the good work! Oh, and if you ever want a signature, feel free to ask me, and I'll make you one. And don't hesitate to ask me any questions; I'll gladly answer them the best I can. Happy Editings! QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 01:02, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Well, do you have any favourite colours, houses, pictures, etc? If not, I'll just choose something. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 01:36, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Well.. Hmmm... I'll go ahead with the Gryffindor colours then; and I'll either put in the Gryffindor Crest or the Hogwarts crest for the image. I'll make a few and post them when they're done; you can choose your fav. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 01:59, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Here they are. I made 3.

Just tell me your favourite, and then I'll tell you how to customize it. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 02:37, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, so now I've created the page User:Ratneer/sig. Now all you need to do is go to your preferences, and put in {{SUBST:User:Ratneer/sig}} and check the Custom Signature box. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 02:46, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Re:Policy template

I fixed the typo. Template:Policy simply transcludes Template:Policytable so there was actually only one template that needed to be fixed. Starstuff (Owl me!) 23:55, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Hi, do you know at the beginning of the third movie? How Harry says Lumos Maxima in his room at night. If he's only 13 in the third movie, why doesn't he get expelled then, when he used the spell at just 13, not 17. Could you explain this to me? -- Terminator234 22:08, December 11, 2009 (UTC)


Yes, but if someone find those pictures is that cool. Yes, those pictures makes this site just so awesome to only if it's from a game. I hope that there will be some pictures coming to the site from the game, but maybe not. I thought that there by a game-character a pictures was.--Station7 22:11, December 12, 2009 (UTC)


I have 1 question and maybe you have an answer. How many new pages coming on this site at 1 day?--Station7 22:23, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Because when I look on this site, there are at least 5/10 pages new.--Station7 22:26, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Good job Ratneer, you deserve the second class of the Order of Merlin. Where can I found that page? I don't know where I can't find the users Order of Merlin.--Station7 21:21, January 7, 2010 (UTC)

I already found it.--Station7 21:43, January 7, 2010 (UTC)


I found just a serie about wizards, I don't know if it count on Harry Potter wiki, but it's from another wiki. So I let you choose. Here is the link: Maybe it's helps, maybe not!!--Station7 22:36, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

And people who they say that were wiches or wizards, count that?--Station7 22:41, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

I'm from The Netherlands, so I will trying to explain it. If there are on other sites things that they said about people who lived in the 16th century or something, has that put here on the site. For example, this site: This is just like they said about Anna Boleyn, the wife of Henry VII.--Station7 22:46, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that's was what I was trying to say, nevermind if this is not good spelled. lol.--Station7 22:50, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

Harry Potter Main Image

Voting has been started for the Main Image of Harry Potter. Just thought I'd let you know QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 22:59, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

pls reply me as soon as possible thanks :D


Check this. It's a fairly good tutorial on the subject. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:32, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

RE:A Question

If the info is relevant and it was copied from a public domain or similar free resource, I guess it's ok. However rewritten texts are prefered. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:32, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to ask me questions whenever doubtful! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:35, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
As for that one, I believe I cannot help you. Never heard of that template before. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:39, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Video game character category

Not in it's current form. It is an OOU category, and these categories are not to be applied to in-universe articles such as characters. The real world categories are only applied to - or should only be applied to - articles that are not in-universe. The appearances section in each article lists where the character appears, and is generally sufficient. I'm working on a way to implement what is known as a Titleicons tag which would indicate what media a character, etc, appears in by applying a small image tag to the articles. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 18:41, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

RE:Lily Potter

Sorry about that. I had never heard about those people, and when the anon added them to the article I immediately thought it was fanon. Thanks for pointing that out! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:53, December 13, 2009 (UTC)

Personal attacks & templates

If you don't want that message from dirtying your talk page, but don't want to delete evidence of a personal attack either, you can hide it from view by placing <!-- before the message and --> after it. This way it can only be seen when the page is edited.

Also, if you don't mind, I just thought I'd ask you to be careful when making or editing templates. Even minor changes can really throw off any pages the templates are applied to. I remember couple of months ago, there was some problem with the {{Expand}} and {{Semiprotected}} templates that really screwed up the formatting of the pages that had them. It wasn't because of anything anyone here did, I think it was actually a Wikia issue, but it still took several days for the admins and several members of Wikia staff to get it straightened out.

If you want some more advice on templates, you should ask Cavalier One or Grunny. They're both pretty experienced with some of the more "technical" details of Wiki functions, and in fact I think they both worked on the incident I mentioned previously.

RE:Relationship Categories

Well yeah, I think they're necessary. Neville Longbottom's and Hannah Abbott's only have each other. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:01, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Well if the administrators thought it wasn't necessary they would've already deleted them by now. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:12, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
What are you talking about? Am I like driving the admins away or something? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:23, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
I don't understand what you mean by that. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:28, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Well they have more power than the both of us combined. No offense. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:34, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah but who has the authority to block whom? Not us, that's only for the admins. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:40, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
I believe you Ratneer. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 22:50, December 14, 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry you don't. I posted my opinion thank you. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 23:00, December 14, 2009 (UTC)


Well as Big Bird once said "Everyone Makes Mistakes" lol. No problem at all. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 23:03, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Nicollette Sheridan on "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"

Unfortunately, the report on Nicollette Sheridan playing the role of Sybill Trelawney in the upcoming two-part feature Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows turned out to be nothing more than just a rumor. That's all it is...just a rumor. Here's the following link: AdamDeanHall 20:47, December 22, 2009 (UTC)

RE: Some Help

Hey Ratneer. Yes, it is possible. To do that you would put {{#ifexist:{{TALKPAGENAME}}|[[{{TALKPAGENAME}}|talk page]]|talk page}} and that would do the trick. However, in the case of {{transcribed image}}, the redlink is useful for providing less experienced users with a link to the talk page even if it hasn't been created yet. As for my monaco.js, I added an in-browser editor from Wikipedia and added some edit buttons. It's mainly a personal preference thing for me :P. Hope that helps. Cheers, Grunny (Talk) 05:13, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Done. See the changes I made. Cheers, Grunny (Talk) 07:18, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

As far as I know, you can't get {{Special:Editcount/USERNAME}} to display the raw number, since unlike "Magic words" used in other expressions, it just displays the total edits as displayed on the special page. Where with something like {{NUMBEROFEDITS}} which would usually display 842,308 (the total number of edits made to a wiki) with a comma, using {{NUMBEROFEDITS:R}} would display 842308, i.e. without the comma. But I don't think there is an option to do that with the special page for edit counts. Cheers, Grunny (Talk) 06:39, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Re: Ron Weasley

Do you think you could get rid of the huge gap in the 6th Year section of Ron Weasley. Every time I try it just gets bigger. Thanks, Hcoknhoj 21:21, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, I know I leave a trail of sloppiness behind, especially when I edit en masse, like I did on Harry Potter and Ron Weasely in the past 2 days. Hcoknhoj 21:27, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

RE: DH Character List

Sorry, i'm late to answer

My reason to remove Ragnuk from the DH Character List is, that Ragnuk is mentioned in the Order of the Phoenix, chapter 5, page 81, last line (UK version)--Thorning 07:49, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for catching that. Is it just me or is that an awful picture of Hermione on the top of the page? Hcoknhoj 06:32, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I mean the one that's up now. She has a very distressed, pained expression. It is kind of off-putting. Hcoknhoj 06:54, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Re:Harry Potter

It's ok, it was a good faith edit. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:29, January 1, 2010 (UTC)


I personally think that Fawkes had some connection to Gryfinndor house because he has red and gold feathers. I think he has Gryfinndor's valued bravery because he punctured the eyes of the Basilisk. Is there anything about this theory? Scarletmoon579 21:04, January 1, 2010 (UTC)Scarletmoon579Ravenclawcrest(Talk to me!)

Re:Tom Riddle

That entire paragraph is about the Second Wizarding War. THe following sentence says he launches his army at Hogwarts. The sentence refers to Harry. --Hcoknhoj 22:21, January 6, 2010 (UTC)


Can you go through the new Prisoner of Azkaban edit and clean it up. I would, but I'm working on another article at the moment?

--Hcoknhoj 21:39, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
