Sirius Black I

See? Told you it was possible. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 15:29, August 17, 2015 (UTC)


Hey there, do you know on which page Quirinus Quirrell has been mentioned in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix? --Station7 (talk) 11:19, November 3, 2015 (UTC)


Confusion Corner

Hi, have some chemical sensitivities so my sentences are probably worse than yours so don't worry. I am trying to get the first names in alphabetical order so if any names are deleted tell me. <3

There seems to be a lot of similarities between the Lima and the Limus families - and the latter might need a disambiguation. Leaving it to the mods to sort it out.

LIMUS - E Limus (film), Eduardus Limus (film), Miro Limus (empty),

E Lima (film), E Limus (film),

- Eduardus Limette Black, Eduardus Lima (film), Eduardus Lima (film), Eduardo Lima (film), Eduardo Lima Filho (film), Edwardus Lima, Eduardus Limus (film),

MINA - M Mina (film), Miraphora Mina (film), Ruth Mina (film),

- Mina (film), Minas (film), Mina Lima (film), Minaka Takahashi (game),

- Miraphorus (film), Miraphora Mina (film), (Mina=wilhelmina)

I'll go and give it a read. While we're at it, I'm trying to resurrect Selected Pictures -- go ahead and have a look at the new nominations that have been put up, and cast your vote! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:43, December 20, 2015 (UTC)

James (Hufflepuff Quidditch player)

Hello! Do you think you could upload a scan from the Character Vault book, showing the concept art featuring the James fellow? Thanks! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 01:33, January 4, 2016 (UTC)

Eagle hat?

Did you actually see the eagle hat somewhere on Pottermore? Because all I'm seeing is an infographic with a picture of a curve intended to represent Luna's head a clip-art-ish graphic of an eagle. If that's what you're referencing, I'm not sure that's really something worth using as an image for the page here. ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:54, February 9, 2016 (UTC)

re: Delete tag

I don't think this would require consensus (considering the few users who are actually editing regularly), but I went ahead and created a forum thread for discussion (which I doubt will get much activity). --Sajuuk 09:47, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

Shouldn't characters killed under the direct orders of Voldemort count as Voldemort killing them? Directly telling/ordering someone to kill another person also makes the former the killer too. Otherwise, Snape and Myrtle wouldn't be in the category. 


Thanks for catching that vandal. Was reverting the vandalism at the same time as you used rollback. Again, thanks! --Sajuuk 22:22, February 25, 2016 (UTC)


 There is a mispell on the summoning charm page. It's outmanoeuvre. I tried to edit it but you edited it back.

Discussion on forums

Hey there Rodolphus! I'm sending this post out to a number of active contributors of the HPW. I'm looking to find out your opinions on this proposal, which could help to improve the community aspect of the HPW and bring in more editors to the wiki. Please leave your opinions on that topic when you get the chance. Thanks! --Sajuuk 15:05, March 24, 2016 (UTC)

The 90s

I think it has everything to do with the time period (to distinguish what's going on in the muggle world in those times), and an interesting (brief) note that I'm sure fans would very much appreciate. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ParadisecityXO (talkcontribs).


I've taken the liberty of archiving your talkpage, since it was getting extremely long (and laggy as well) I've also left links at the top of the talkpage so you can find them easily. --Sajuuk 19:31, April 5, 2016 (UTC)

No worries. Since we don't have any automatic JS tool to simplify the process of creating archives, it's easy to forget to do them. :) --Sajuuk 19:39, April 5, 2016 (UTC)


User:ParadisecityXO's only contribution before those she recently made to the 1990s article was drive-by vandalism of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in July of last year. I didn't catch this vandalism until January, and thus chose not to impose a block on ParadisecityXO at the time, as the vandalism was a one-off occurrence and she hadn't returned to cause any trouble since.

But, now that she's returned strictly to try to edit war off-topic and completely subjective content into an article, it's clear we're dealing with someone who has no interest in contributing constructively to this wiki. Starstuff (Owl me!) 01:43, April 6, 2016 (UTC)

Date fixes

Thanks for help with cleaning up the date pages! I've been trying to reduce the redundant info stored on both the decade and the year pages and make the events easier to review. There are a lot of date ranges (eg After 1955, Before, Between, Circa) that have been listed as specific year events so I appreciate the help in clearing things up! —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ironyak1 (talkcontribs).

ref question

Yo. A user added a quote to a reference, which I removed since it's not necessary. What's your opinion on adding direct quotes from canonical sources into reference tags? --Sajuuk 12:14, April 17, 2016 (UTC)


I'll probably get flak from some people for asking, but I was just wondering if you could join it (if you do join chat that is :P). --Sajuuk 18:29, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

If not able to join chat, then just wondering if you could post on this topic regarding the bot rights. I'm gonna scratch out the request for sysop rights, as that's not gonna happen. --Sajuuk 11:15, May 10, 2016 (UTC)

Link Templates

Hi Rodolphus - I'm hoping you might be able to take a look at the Forum - Link Template discussion. SuperSajuuk and I have spent some time working on some templates to act as short codes for the common articles seen in Appearances and Reference sections. The idea is to provide short codes with options that are easy to read and that users can quickly type:

or more complicated, but saving alot of typing

Given your extensive experience here, I'd love to hear you thoughts and whether you'd find these understandable and useful. Many thanks! --Ironyak1 (talk) 01:07, May 14, 2016 (UTC)

Policy discussions

I recently opened a couple of discussions on the Wizengamot forum proposing changes to policy. The first proposal concerns adding new guidelines on the listing of family members in character infoboxes to HPW:CIFG. The second proposal concerns updating our formal policy on the use of copyrighted material (such as screenshots from the films) to bring it into line with current practice. If you have time, feel free to check out these discussions, and contribute your thoughts and suggestions. Starstuff (Owl me!) 00:06, May 18, 2016 (UTC)

Cow + Bull = Cattle

Found time to wrangle together Cattle - please check Cow & Bull to make sure I didn't miss anything before they are removed. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 08:12, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

I don't see a species infobox in Category:Infobox_templates - is it missing from here or does not exist yet? --Ironyak1 (talk) 08:35, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

Ooops. It is called creature infobox, of course.--Rodolphus (talk) 08:38, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

No worries - all done (medium well ;) --Ironyak1 (talk) 08:47, May 25, 2016 (UTC)

RE Alias

Yeah, I wasn't real sure hence all the ?s but if Phlegm is out then so is Loony Lovegood. Given all the attention to the infoboxes lately, probably worth asking in forums to clarify if it's a strict Alias like you defined (self assumed) or closer to AKA (also known as) with some limitations against basic insults like filthy mudblood (but Miss Mudblood seems closer to Loony Lovegood IMO). Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:28, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

So based on the discussion here and the policy here it looks like Phlegm is ok as it appears several times in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 5 (An Excess of Phlegm). I'm guessing it's the same for Schleim? --Ironyak1 (talk) 21:59, June 8, 2016 (UTC)

Slughorn date of birth

Noticed you don't like the Late Summer note, but he has to be born after Dumbledore which means most of 1881 is out. I see this the same as you changing it from 1882, or Dumbledore having Summer 1881 for his infobox, Thoughts on how best show it's Fall 1881 - 1899? --Ironyak1 (talk) 21:13, June 10, 2016 (UTC)

lol, yeah we overlooked that :) 1882 or later it is --Ironyak1 (talk) 07:44, June 11, 2016 (UTC)

Two Generations?

What do you mean by two generations? Two generations in terms of what?

KillerBird (talk) 08:20, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

Why not list all known relatives in the family members field of the info box? If the relationship between two characters can be clearly defined e.g. father and son, mother and daughter e.t.c then why not list that relationship? I can understand if the characters do not have a clearly defined relationship other than being ancestor and descendant but otherwise why not?

KillerBird (talk) 08:56, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

What is too long for the infobox then?

KillerBird (talk) 10:57, July 4, 2016 (UTC)


I saw you reverted a series of page moves made by KillerBird. I'll try, too, but keep an eye on him; I heard through the grapevine (by a user to RobertATfm here) that KB is a sock of Jdogno7 trying to circumvent his ban. I'm inclined to agree, given his recent series of edit wars (double check his contributions) over the use of "sex" and "gender". --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 16:42, July 9, 2016 (UTC)

Is there a problem with me? Have I done anything wrong? How have I edit warred? What was wrong with using gender where it was more fitting?

KillerBird (talk) 00:46, July 10, 2016 (UTC)

Hey man,

you really have done so much for the Wiki in the time you've been here, thanks for being awesome!

It is certainly clear in the books that Gryffindor is more competitive with Slytherin than any other houses.The same fact goes for Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.

LordJayden (talk) 10:14, July 22, 2016 (UTC)LordJayden

According to Rowling, Pansy Parkinson is totally an anti-Hermione character. Neither their character nor physical appearances are alike. So it can be surely said that Pansy Parkinson doesn't have brown hair.

LordJayden (talk) 13:16, July 23, 2016 (UTC)LordJayden

No mate,None of their traits are alike.

LordJayden (talk) 13:23, July 23, 2016 (UTC)LordJayden

There's no need to start another talk page. In HP3 film Pansy Parkinson had Black hair not brown.

Moreover, I think that you are not well concerned about Pansy's characteristics, especially what Rowling said.

RE:Ilvermorny userbox

Hi, Rodolphus! I made this template here. Do you want a similar template for Pukwudgie? I can do this, no problem. I only want to be sure if it's this you want. When yes, which colours do you want?  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 19:50, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Okay, I will do.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 20:06, July 24, 2016 (UTC)
Here it is. Hope you like it.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 20:16, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Important dates


da ich mir nicht ganz sicher bin, ob du über meine Antwort benachrichtigt wurdest (war ja schließlich auf meiner Seite), melde ich mich hier nochmal. Ich habe jetzt mal im Wizengamot ein Thema gestartet (ist es normal, dass es nicht sofort in der Liste angezeigt wird?). Wäre es in Ordnung für dich, wenn ich das Entfernen der Unterthemen nochmal rückgängig mache, bis eine endgültige Entscheidung feststeht? Wenn sich dagegen entschieden wird, lösch ich gerne alles wieder eigenhändig, aber bis dahin wäre es schade um die zwei Stunden Arbeit, falls am Ende doch mehr Leute dafür sind ^^

Bot request

Hi there! I've put in a bot flag request so I can apply the Pottermore links, UK spelling, and short link fixes I've been developing in an automated fashion. If you could take a moment and provide some feedback, it would be appreciated! Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:07, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

Cheers! --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:13, July 29, 2016 (UTC)

Chat Moderator


So I recently added an application for Chat Moderator (I know, sounds weird, I explain it all in the application), and I was just wondering if you could go and have a look to see what you think about it,

Hope that you are well, and that you have a nice day,


  ArrestoMomentum | talk  02:21, August 6, 2016 (UTC)


I am not trying to be difficult. You must have noticed that I am trying to remove those that I understand should not be there but there are still some that have not been explained as to why they should not be there.

What is wrong with stating that Rabastan is her stepuncle. What is wrong with stating that Astoria and Remus are her first cousins-in-law. What is wrong with stating that Edward Lupin and Scorpius Malfoy are her first cousins-once removed, especially with Scorpius who she knows.

KillerBird (talk) 10:12, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

RE Bot

So a bot is just a program that makes a series of edits to pages. They are generally ran through either Autowikibot (which is a pre-built program to handle common tasks) or pyWikiBot (which allows programs written in Python to talk to wikimedia servers). Autowikibot is good for general tasks (moving categories, renaming articles, etc) whereas pywikibot allows you to make custom programs for more complicated changes (UK vs US spelling, redundant pipes, etc). Each of these is a separate task in my program so they can be enabled or disabled as needed.

Right now I am using the Recent Changes articles to test out these functions and make fixes as needed (file names with US spelling is the current problem to figure out). Once a bot is granted a bot-flag, it can edit about 1 page a second if you choose, but the changes can only be seen in Recent Changes - Show Bots, so that it doesn't overwhelm the Recent Change list.

Hope that helps - let me know if there are more questions! Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:43, August 7, 2016 (UTC)

Forum request

Hi, Rodolphus. The User:TAlim 1994 pleaded me to promote his forum request and so I thought I do him the favour and suggested also to him to leave a message on the talk pages of the admins. Perhaps you have time and have a look?  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 21:35, August 24, 2016 (UTC)
