Harry Potter Wishlists
Hey! I contacted ProfessorTofty about this but it doesn't look like he has been on recently so I was wondering if you could promote/highlight this blog we put up (blog found here). The blog is asking users to share what items they would put on a Harry Potter wishlist! It's part of a fun project we're doing and it would be great if you could help us promote so people will see it. Let me know, thanks! Grace (profile)•(talk) 18:30, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
Really sorry to bother you, but I noticed you've been putting up information from Wonderbook: Book of Potions a lot recently. Were you lucky enough to buy the game, or did you find a link to it somewhere? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 20:59, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
Main page problem
Hi, Seth! When I was on the main page I saw at the bottom of the page this:
'''<ref>-Tags exist, but no <references />-Tag found.'''
I thought I should tell you.17:50, November 15, 2013 (UTC)
Simen Johannes Fagerli
Seth, I'm having to take it up with you and I apologize for that, but any possibility of enforcing a vacation to [User:Simen Johannes Fagerli|Mr Fagerli]]? Perhaps it will not teach him anything, but at least it will prevent a full-fledged edit war. MinorStoop 12:00, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
- Hunnie Bunn seems to have been able to defuse the situation. I'm not yet exactly willing to recant on this, but I've calmed down enough to put this request on hold, so, if you think it fitting, feel free to disregard it completely. Thanks! MinorStoop 16:50, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
I possess Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 with disc one; I am uncertain if there is a second disc involved, but in the first disc there is no extra scene involving Godric's Hollow. I therefore wondered if, because I cannot take a picture for my own, I might borrow this wiki's image of The Seven Swans? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:55, November 16, 2013 (UTC)
- The wiki I founded last July and which has been the centre of my attention here on wikia for the past little while. I suppose I should have asked to borrow the templates ... maybe I did originally, but I don't remember doing so, so if I didn't then sorry... --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:35, November 17, 2013 (UTC)
- Also, I wanted to incorporate the new information from Pottermore explaining the house colours (bronze and blue mean feather and sky, yellow and black for soil and grain, red and gold for flame and green and silver for water) but was uncertain as to where it should go ... I figured I'd see if you could help? Much appreciated. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 03:08, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Based on the film, we have Justin Finch-Fletchley's hair colour as brown. I believe this is wrong and would like to change it. As you can see in the picture below, on the left we have Blonde Penelope Clearwater, Hermione (hidden by the nurse and seen by the arm) and Colin (his hand position for holding a camera). This means, on the right, we have Nick behind the shade and thus, by association, Justin (foreground, right) is the blonde one.
Strange Muggle artefacts...
I know you've looked at images from Flickr taken at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London quite a bit. I was wondering what you thought of this image of a bunch of wirelesses. I'm unsure of what part of the films this is even supposed to be from (the scene in Arthur's shed in Half-Blood Prince?). More importantly, I'm unsure of what the black item on the bottom of the stacked objects is, though I think it's a cassette deck based on the style of the buttons. The logo quite clearly says "Toshiba", and thus Toshiba should be worthy of an article, but it's difficult to write an article on something when I don't know this object's relevance to Harry Potter. Any ideas on what this is and where it's from? -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 00:14, November 28, 2013 (UTC)
Hello Seth! Would you like to exchange some Harry Potter trivia over chat sometime?
Hi again! I was wondering if you could tell me more about the Gryffindor head of houses?
A Long Time Later
Hi, I don't know if you remember me, but I'm El Alamein, and I talked to you briefly over the summer. I had asked for your input about a fight between General Grievous and Lord Voldemort. Well, firstly, I'd like to thank you for your help, as the battle was a huge success! You really made it happen! And your community is much nicer than those stiffs on the Star Wars Wiki, who either didn't bother answering or else didn't want to help out. So, again, thanks for the assistance.
You had said to let you know how it turned out. Well, the battle has been written, and you can check it out here: http://deadliestfiction.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:El_Alamein/Voldemort_vs._General_Grievous
Let me know what you think! I hope I represented the Dark Lord accurately (it was not entirely written by me; I collaborated with another user on my Wiki) and I hope you enjoy the sim.
Have a good evening,
Is it just me, or did the pages suddenly get wider? - Nick O'Demus 14:46, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
- I would say it has to do with the fluid layout, look here. 17:13, December 4, 2013 (UTC)
In the article for Fenrir Greyback, I have added "in or before 1947" to the date of birth. Here is why. Do you agree?
Lupin states explicitly that the Whomping Willow was built because he came to Hogwarts. This means that Greyback could not have been a werewolf at Hogwarts as there would have been a place for him to transform if he was, meaning he had to have become a werewolf sometime after leaving Hogwarts at 17. As well as this, Greyback was already known to be a werewolf in 1964 when he bit Lupin. Accounting for his seven years of Hogwarts and at least a year to become known as a werewolf, we can state that 1947 is the latest he can be born. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 07:08, December 5, 2013 (UTC)
Admittedly, true. But, Dumbledore knows of him; this implies that he was a student under Dumbledore as Transfiguration teacher - he can't have been headmaster as that would make Greyback only 6 (or there abouts) when he bit Lupin. Even a six year old Greyback wouldn't be on the loose yet and if he did attend Hogwarts - which is very likely - then there would need to have been somewhere for him to transform, thus implying he transformed after Hogwarts, sometime between 1963 and 1964 (when he bit Lupin). --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 20:47, December 5, 2013 (UTC)
I require assistance!
From this link - http://thepensieve.org/HPMuseumEX/HPexhibition1.html - it reveals all the DA members from the film prop. Now, we have a Nigel Wolpert page... yet on the link I provided (which we have used as a sufficient reference link of the Alice Tolipan page) it reveals Nigel's surnamed to be WESPURT.
Now, by your statement of "The Pensieve" not being canon, then we have to remove that Luca Carose (or however you spell the name) and Alice Tolipan were not in Dumbledore's army and that both were born in or before 1994. Even though the website is not valid, the information comes from Harry Potter Exhibition, which is valid. That is why I changed the page; the valid information on that website explicitly state Nigel Wespurt.--HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 21:05, December 11, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you, Seth, for your welcoming. I would like to inform you that my edit is not founded in any of Joan K. Rowling's books or products, but on a comedy show that joked about A.E.K., a greek sports club, and its inability to win any kind of tournament in any sport, not even Quidditch. If my action is against the wiki's policies, I will edit it out as soon as you request it.
Yours truly, Marius ¬¬¬¬
I'm new to the site so I hope I'm doing this right but I had a question about a page I stumbled across about the "Rune Sign Language" Wizarding Public Awareness notice from the Harry Potter Limited Edition. I saw your name on the page and I was wondering if that means you were the person that posted the picture or if you were just linked to it...my cousin really loves Harry Potter and goes to school to become a sign language interpreter so I was wondering if I could get more information about where this image could be found or if I could get a nice scan of it from you or whoever posted it, or any leads or ideas would be much appreciated!
Lower Chambers Portrait Corridor / Prowling Passage?
Thus, isn't the corridor Harry was roaming in actually the Prowling Passage, not the LCPC?
Let me know on my talk page :),
Do you think that Auror skills should be added to Neville's, Ron's and Harry's magical abilites and skills list. They did begin Auror training after the Battle of Hogwarts and were Aurors for some length of time. So obviously after the three year training program were they studied coures like; Concealment and Disguise, Stealth and Tracking, and various others. They should have the required Auor skills.
Please resond on your page. What I said on the Harry talk page was in resonse to what HalfBloodWitch wrote next time i'll take it to her talk page, sorry. If I deleted anyone's post on the talk page then i'm sorry for that too it wasn't intentional. The post that I just deleted off your talk page was mine. I forgot to add a headline.
- I'd say not - they developed them after completion of the series. MinorStoop 23:15, December 16, 2013 (UTC)
- Okay, I wasn't sure if the wiki was just focusing on present tense (as in what happened during the series)or if it went beyond that, thanks.
- To add qoutes to a page is there a certain process you have to go through. Do you need premission from someone to add them? I tryed adding the compliment that McGonagall payed Harry regarding his O.W.l. result in his sixth year. How she was pleased with his Transfiguration mark but, it was undone.
- I also noticed some of the pages are locked has something been going on for them to be locked?
- Please resond once again on your page, thank you.

Seth: Just curious - on which DVD extra did you find a reference so specific to Hogwarts founding date? In CoS book, Binns states (in 1992) that Hogwarts is over a thousand years old. In Pottermore, the Slytherin prefect welcome speech states that Merlin was a Slytherin, making Hogwarts much older than that - early first millenium. Oftenl8 (talk) 04:19, December 17, 2013 (UTC)
I think it's pretty safe to classify BachLynn23, Grunny, and Speedysnitch as "Inactive" at this point, at least as far as Admin duties. BachLynn23's had only 8 edits since March, Grunny 8 edits since January, and aside from a brief period in September, Speedysnitch has had little activity since 2012. I'd just like a second opinion before I make it official. - Nick O'Demus 08:47, December 24, 2013 (UTC)
- You think maybe it's time to nominate another admin or two? - Nick O'Demus 23:33, January 13, 2014 (UTC)

And the same to you! You gave me a start; for a moment I thought I did something wrong. :-P MinorStoop 23:11, December 24, 2013 (UTC)
Is this suitable for a recreation of article?
I suggest that the Assembly Hall page is recreated due to it being moved to Classroom 1B.
This picture shows this as the Transfiguration Room (1B). The Transfiguration classroom doesn't have windows aligned the side, and it's also mostly outside of the transfiguration courtyard. As you can see, behind the door, there is also windows, and not the standard courtyard archways.
I think this is good proof that Classroom 1B is different to the Assembly Hall, and we recreate said page.
Hi! Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to make an edit to the Pottermore article, but wasn't sure whether it was entirely accurate. I'm not sure if I'm misreading this and they've already done the second and third instalments, or if the second instalment of Goblet of Fire will be the last? I think the information provided in the Insider article would be significant, but didn't want to post anything inaccurate? Should I just wait until the "regular updates" are posted after? Much thanks. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:09, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
I have a question...
Well, this leads into my next question. If everything was "hushed up" and Voldemort never bragged about the chamber or the Basilisk, the fact that Lucius told Draco is a bit strange. Unless, Abraxas was at Hogwarts (some age between 11 and 17) in 1943 when the Chamber was opened - thus, knowing of it, he would be able to tell Lucius. So, by that logic, onto my third question. Would that be a valid reference to put that Abraxas was born between 1925 (making him old enough to have started in the September 1936 - June 1937 school year and be in his 7th year) and 1931 (making him old enough to start in the September 1942 - June 1943 school year as Myrtle died on June 13, 1943 so Abraxas cannot have started in 1943 as it would be after Myrtle's death)?--HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 01:39, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Abraxas, having recently died in September 1996, was mentioned - that's it. Lucius's mother, it's most likely - though, I admit, not confirmed - died in childbirth with him; another, rather unlikely possibility, is that she and Abraxas divorced and she left. And, as far as we know, Draco, Lucius and Abraxas were only children.
J.K. Rowling confirmed that - by the 1992 - 1993 school year - Lucius knew the diary was powerful, but not that it would open the chamber, thus implying that whatever information he learned (unlikely to be from the board of governors as everything was "hushed up" by Dippett and Dumbledore wouldn't be stupid enough to reveal it) was second hand from a parent.--HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 02:03, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, both were hushed up, but as you said, in 1992 - 1993, people learned of it. In the 1942 - 1943 attacks it is implied that, apart from Mytrle's parents, the teachers, the students in the school and Riddle, no-one else knew. Thus, as Riddle was "made to keep his mouth shut" (paraphrasing), the other students would have been likely made to do the same. This implies that at least one of Lucius's parents were at Hogwarts for the 1942 - 1943 school year. Thus, surely, we can put a b. between 1925 and 1931 (possibly) for Abraxas and add that reasoning in and, possibly, make a page for Mrs Malfoy. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 02:38, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
Because Lucius was born almost 11 years after the chamber event in 1943. Abraxas, though made to be quiet as a student could not be forbidden from telling his child something as an adult. Tell me it contradicts itself, will you?
Aye, again true - but why couldn't Abraxas have attended Hogwarts at that time? There is all probability - given that, if he did attend Hogwarts and was born, at the latest, in 1939 (this would make him 17 at Lucius's birth and there's no indication in the series that he was under age; again, none for him being of age either) he would have known of the Chamber. --HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 03:22, January 17, 2014 (UTC)
How do you add the templates/userboxes thing on your userpage? If you know, which im pretty sure you do, can you please tell me how on my user page? Thanks :) --User:Chriskim98
I was thinking of creating a new category for herds of animals. We have several pages that could possibly fit it. Thestral herd, Hippogriff Herd, band of Hogwarts horses and the Bauxbatons horses.
I don´t have an idea if the new category would fit into any other category. Herding is a form of social behaviour. Category: Biology, perhaps. What do you think?--Rodolphus (talk) 13:44, January 18, 2014 (UTC)
I have created it. You may take a look. Maybe I have even forgotten some herds. Also, I have started a forum topic on creating sub-categories for families. Do you have an opinion on that matter?--Rodolphus (talk) 17:13, January 24, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, Seth! I have a problem with images which have the letters - ad - in their path. They are not shown on my PC, e. g. File:UnicornSlaying.png. Do you know why and what can I do to change this? 00:39, February 8, 2014 (UTC)

Seth, I think that User:Jdono7:Jdono7 and I have reached an impasse about that Tom Marvolo Riddle's Horcruxes page and the use of "as well as" instead of "and" in a few pages. Since at this point mulishness has kicked in and neither is willing to back down, I think we need some outside mediation. I'm sorry - I kinda hoped I was better than a recent chronic disagreer; looks like I'm not. MinorStoop 07:53, March 4, 2014 (UTC)
