Hey, Seth. In the {{Actor infobox}} template code, the word "in" in the "In Harry Potter" cell is all-capped. Since the page is locked, can you or one of the other admins fix it? --Cubs Fan (Talk to me) 02:35, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hogwarts headmasters

Hello. I´ve read your article about the architect of Hogwarts. Do you think that we should create an article on the first Hogwarts Headmaster mentioned in the source? And what about Slytherin´s Portrait in the Headmaster´s office? Is it still cannon? See Talk: Salazar Slytherin.--Rodolphus 15:18, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Given it´s stated that Headmaster Portraits are hung in the office, I´d say that it isn´t cannon.--Rodolphus 19:09, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hello Seth

Hello Seth,

I've read quite a few of the articles you've created or edited and think that they are really good. 15:52, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Ministry of Magic

Hey Seth, I noticed that of you go to the tab on the left side of the screen, and you go to "Organisations", then you see "Ministry of Magic", which redirects to "British Ministry of Magic". Can you fix the redirect, since I do not know the link to it? Thanks.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 22:00, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Master of Death

The page lists Ignotus Peverell as a master of death. I understand that he did not fear death, so he had the attitude down, but as he never mastered the 3 hallows, does he count? See:Talk:Master of Death. Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 05:50, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

I was also curious about this! I added the personification of death to that list too, since clearly death would have mastered death, just in case he's not merely a literary reference since it was never established if Dumbledore's theory was right or not. Ty 09:22, April 7, 2010 (UTC)


Did you and User:Starstuff go through some kind of reversion war about the whole s's > s' > s's type thing like with Dean Thomas' relatives? Trying to learn more about this now, here Chicago says either's okay in which case I figure fewer characters is better but then you have Elements of Style and Canadian Press Stylebook saying you can only end in apostrophe for... Classical/Biblical proper names and 'common phrases'? Found that rather confusing, it seems like a complex field of study. Does it differ if we're talking about last names like Thomas or first names like Albus or place names rooted in plurality like (Hog)warts? What I just thought of is to check what Rowling uses in her books, I can't recall off hand but it'd be a good thing to go off of, so long as she's consistent. I'm not really sure how to check something like consistency though, that'd require some way to digitally search it. Picking out things from the first and last book might be the best way to check if she ever changed it I suppose, though possessives don't always stand out since searching for a person's name doesn't always appear in the possessive form =( Hm. Ty 09:22, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

  • Ah, I actually just borrowed all the english books from the library to read them. So basically the format is only to drop the s after the apostrophe when it is plural. I regret I already sort of tried to make it consistant for removing it in the possessive for all Harry's mentors (Albus'/Severus'/James'/Remus'/Sirius') though I get confused with family names that end in s, but I guess if that is plural there would be an 'es'. Like if we were talking about the Thomas family's surname I would say "The Thomases' surname". Ty 13:08, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Minister for Magic infobox

I was wondering if you were still thinking about deleting the Minister for Magic infobox, because it is pointless to still have it when it is not being used. Thanks.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 01:22, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

house points

hey, when does the house points competion start? 09:38, April 8, 2010 (UTC)


Guess whose birthday is today?! I'm back by the way!!!! Also would you mind sayin Grouchy Birthday? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 12:38, April 8, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks Seth!! I got blocked by Cavalier One for a month for not listening to his warnings about several stuff. Thanks again!!! It feels great to be back!!!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!!!) 12:38, April 8, 2010 (UTC)


Is there a way to do the TL thing (ie {{reflist}}) with stuff in brackets like references? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 22:21, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, could you take a look at the dialogue for the Horace Slughorn section of Lily Evans. It was originally horribly misquoted and badly formatted. I fixed it to the best of my ability, but I think it may be a little off. Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 23:11, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

I get a lot of questions about how to properly source an article. Is there a way of making [1] show up? I mean the actual text. If you don't look at it in source, you just see the citation, but not the text that creates the citation. Do you get what I'm saying? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 21:49, April 14, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Chapter 19 (The Servant of Lord Voldemort)

Rewrite request

Hello Seth. As you may know, I´ve created an article about Homework some months ago. Can you please have a look on it and rewrite it if it´s necessary. I also need help with the sourcing (I´m not very good at it) and I may have missed some information. Thanks.--Rodolphus 13:10, April 13, 2010 (UTC)


Hi can you please make me a marauders map name please?

You have one and I believe that you gave lord voldemort killed the vampire one so please can you?

Project Wizard Tales

Salutations! I was asking for the privilege of becoming a Caretaker for Project Wizard Tales. I do own the book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Please get back to me as soon as you can.


Hello Seth,

My name is HarryPotterobsessed1232 and I had a question, I was wondering how you get the infor box below a picture, I'm new so i'm am not exactly sure how to do it, Thank-you!


I noticed on the DYK archive that there is a redirect in Ron Weasley on the first one. I would appreciate it if you fixed it for me if you fixed it. Thanks.--L.V.K.T.V.J.Hogwarts(Send an owl!) 01:11, April 21, 2010 (UTC)

I noticed more than one redirect on the current DYK template. I'd fix em if I could. Seth do you think you could? Thanks buddy! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!! P.S. Have a rotten day!!!!) 01:21, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Peanutbutterpotterpuppetpals123's talk page

My friend Chloe, Peanutbutterpotterpuppetpals123, has made 5 edits to this wiki and hasn't gotten an Wikia edit message yet. Could have anything to do with her editing through my computer and using my IP adress? --Scarletmoon579Ravenclawcrest(Talk to me!) 23:33, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hiya Seth it's Sam Lucas (Snatcher)

Hello Seth, this is Sam Lucas. I tried updating some info about me on the Harry Potter Wiki page someone had made me, that i see you have editied and removed the information i put up there?

Annoying User

Seth, this guy keeps on posting "ASSHOLE" in big letters on talk pages all over the Wiki!! I've reverted his recent vandalism on mine now, most likely, 5 times!! Please ban him!!!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!! P.S. Have a rotten day!!!!) 01:09, April 29, 2010 (UTC)


Hey, I'm Jelby, and lets get it straight that I am a girl. I know I've got a weird name, sorry, but I can't change it.

Well I got a message signed by you congradulating me on registering on Harry Wiki, which leads me to assume that you are the main editor here, right? Well I'm gonna assume that, so sorry if I'm wrong, but if you are, then I have a request.

Could please please change the Philosipher's Stone titles to the correct title, The Sorcerer's Stone. I don't know if you did that or someone else, but I've changed most of them, and it's really starting to piss me off.

Trust me, I'm not a bitch, I'm just really pissed, sorry.

Did You Know

i noticed in the "did you know" section on the home page that it says "squibs cannnot see dementors" but how can this be said when Mrs Figg gave testimony at harry's hearing in book 5? Sw9889 (talk) 02:20, May 6, 2010 (UTC) 02:11, May 6, 2010 (UTC)

Mrytle Quote

Can you check the quote atop the Myrtle page. I'm not certain that is the exact wording and my books are packed as I'm currently moving. Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 20:37, May 7, 2010 (UTC)

Invisibility cloak

i was just reading book 7 and it was saying how harry had the deathly hallows cloak, they knew this b/c it had not faded and was impenetrable. my question is; if it is the Deathly Hallows Cloak how could Mad-Eye (bless his soul) have seen through it?Sw9889 (Have something to say?) 02:35, May 9, 2010 (UTC)

Another unidentified teacher?

Hi Seth. I´ve just found the info that Kate Duchêne, who played witch Miss Harshbroom in the Worst Witch series from 1998, played an unidentified teacher in HP II at the leaving feast. Perhaps you even know the series. The only unidentified teacher I could find in this scene is standing on Flitwick´s right side. Could this be her? Should we create an article? I can´t take an image, though. She´s in the very last scene.--Rodolphus 18:06, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

Harry granger 18:44, May 12, 2010 (UTC) I found a picture of her under this source:

Ok, then I've mistaken Mcgonagall for an unidentified one. Wait a moment, I'll watch the scene again.

I've watched the scene again and can't find another one. It says on ImdB that she wears her Harshbroom costume from Worst witch. You can find images of her via google search engine. Perhaps the Database is simply wrong.--Rodolphus 08:30, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Repeat offender

He's unregistered, but using a static IP so he can be blocked. He has repeatedly ignored Thorning's warnings. Here's the IP: Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:38, May 14, 2010 (UTC)


Is over-simplifying articles considered vandalism? User:AnthonyAppleyard is changing perfectly correct sentences to make them simpler. It may not be vandalism, but it does reduce the quality of the wiki. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 22:03, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

Heads Up

Our timeline changer who switches the Diary and Ring and the dates of Myrtle's and TR Sr.'s deaths is back. I left him a a warning. He's user: Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 02:06, May 16, 2010 (UTC)


When does the blog elimination come into affect? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 18:07, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Will do, thanks anyway. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 18:20, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

I'm back

Sorry for my absence for a long period of time. I can't do any edit here because our internet connection were disconnected, but today it was reconnected so i can visit here again and do some editing.. By the way, i'm just curious why User: Grouchman is blocked infinitely...? --ÈnŔîčö DCRavenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 10:29, May 23, 2010 (UTC)

Cadmus Peverell

Could you look at the Talk:Cadmus Peverell? At the bottom is a question just added today that I cannot answer, and I was wondering if you could. I have never thought of it, but it is a good question. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 20:04, May 25, 2010 (UTC)

Conjectural Event Titles

It occurred to me that we made up the names of all the events of the Second Wizarding War which could lead to issues with conjectural titles. I started a discussion to get this figured out. Forum:Conjectural Event Titles --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:25, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

Draco Malfoy

The infobox picture was changed. Does Draco rate a vote for infobox picture changes? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 23:21, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

Deleting images

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible for me to delete an image I uploaded? If it is possible, how do I delete it? Slytherin7thyear 08:27, June 1, 2010 (UTC)

Gryffindors Sorted in 1991

Can I ask why you deleted my page about 25 minutes ago?!

Re:Deleting images

Oh, thanks. Well, it's quite a few images, so I'm not sure if it will be inconvenient.

some of them are for copyright reasons

thanks so much

Using Templates

Can I use the wikis character templates? I promise to change the peremeters to my liken (on my wiki, of course). I hope I hear from you real soon. EDIT: i WILL give HP wiki all the credit for making the templates.--KiumaruHamachi 13:40, June 1, 2010 (UTC)KiumaruHamachi

Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Hello and thanks for the welcome.

I joined because I visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter today and wanted to help improve it's pages on the wikia. If there are any rules or protocals I should follow let me know. I noticed many of the attractions have duplicate entries and was wondering what could be done about that. BFG86 22:27, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Epilogue pictures

Hey Seth, it's Jayce. What's your opinion on this? The Snatcher 17:27, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

Creating Article

Hey, I haven't been on wikia for ages and now I kinda forgot where the button is to make a article, I can't find it anywhere. Please reply on my user page. Thanks. Bongo2009 Gryffindor Talk 23:52, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :) Bongo2009 Gryffindor Talk 00:09, June 4, 2010 (UTC)


Hi Seth, it's Jayden. Long time no see:) Listen, I have some free time in the next few weeks, due to half term, and I was wondering if it would be possible for me to return to the Harry Potter Wiki, if only for a short while? - Jayden Matthews

Thanks. It's good to be back. Jayden Matthews 16:20, June 5, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm not sure how much help I'll be, but I'll do my best. Is there anything I need to know? Jayden Matthews 16:35, June 5, 2010 (UTC)


You've already given this user warnings. Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 20:22, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Ginevra Weasley

Can you look please on the site of Ginevra Weasley. What has happened here? Vandalism? Harry granger 07:18, June 9, 2010 (UTC)

Wandless magic

Please help me. Some annon Users (or possibly one with several IPs) keep removing Fenrir Greyback from the list of wandless spell practitioners. It was mentioned in the original script amd is never contradicted, so it should be cannon. Despite my explanations they don´t stop. If they do it again, could you please talk to them?--Rodolphus 12:47, June 9, 2010 (UTC)


i have two questions...

1 how did you get you picture on the Marauder's Map?

2 how did you layout the separate menu for you user boxes?

please help me make my user page as good as yours. KLOKOCHAR 20:37, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

thank you!KLOKOCHAR 04:39, June 14, 2010 (UTC)

can you please make me a pic with "Josh Klokochar" on the Marauders Map? plz?

Adding categories

Oh, I'm sorry I was so concentrated on the edits that I forgot the image categories... By the way, I think my new version of Quirrell's profile image was better quality, why did you change back? Thanks, --El Profeta Vespertino 22:54, June 19, 2010 (UTC)


Hi Seth, how's things. Are you following the World Cup? Jayden Matthews 20:17, June 20, 2010 (UTC)


Seth, all articles start with "Harry was a half-blood wizard." Every verb that tells the character's story is past tense per HPW policy. Forum:Past/Present tense? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 16:41, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry if I was terse. You changed Rolf Scamander to "Rolf Scamander is..." Sorry, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 17:10, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Infobox pics

On the talk pages for Talk:Harry Potter and Talk:Ronald Weasley there are now discussions for changing the infobox pictures. In light of the fact that no one seemed opposed to the change on Hermione Granger after we spent weeks fighting about the picture it replaced, I wanted to know if any admin was going to weigh in on these votes. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:33, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Unspeakable vote

Hi Seth :). Just wondered if you could take a look at the FANs for Argus Filch and Aurora Sinistra. I have started a vote to remove on both due to the unaddressed objections and need another Unspeakable vote to get them off the page :). Cheers, Grunny (talk) 04:54, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks :). Grunny (talk) 12:00, June 24, 2010 (UTC)

Lockhart Blood Status

If you look at the reasoning behind Lockhart's blood status both in the infobox and in the BTS section of Gilderoy Lockhart, is it just me or is that just ridiculous speculation? --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:09, June 25, 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, Rodolphus took it down, but left the blurb in the BTS. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 19:21, June 25, 2010 (UTC)


Oh, thanks! But I don't want to become a member of this Wiki, anyway if I'll have the chance, I'll be glad to make some others, small, changes to your nice project. Thank you! 16:39, June 28, 2010 (UTC)

Help for sourcing articles !!!

Hi, Seth!

I have a problem. I tried to understand how to source correct, but I have not understood how to do it right. I see the source in the field Controls. I have also read what there is written. But it does not help me. Perhaps you can explain me. Thank you. Harry granger 20:35, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, Seth!

Thank you for your explanations. I will try them at the next possibility. I hope, it will function then. JKoch tried generously to explain too. Unfortunately I had not understood him. I hope I understand it now. Thanks at both. Harry granger 17:51, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

New blog policy in effect

As per the vote on the proposed blog policy, I am pleased to say that the new policy is now in effect. Users have one week to retrieve any work they want from the blogs. After that time, feel free to begin deleting blog posts that do not adhere to the new rules. I'll be conducting a massive sweep of the pages soon myself. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 11:26, June 30, 2010 (UTC)


Hi, I´ve read your new Flume family article. Do you have the new Lego game. If you do, perhaps you can say something about [[Talk:Unidentified female Hogwarts employee (IV)|this discussion]] Thank you.--Rodolphus 16:47, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunatelly, to make most characters playable, you have to collect tokens. Septima Vector is listed on our page, but I haven´t found her yet. If she is in the game and resembles one of the film characters, do you think we should merge the articles?--Rodolphus 18:04, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

In the game, there are some Portraits which only react to specific individuals, e. g. Hufflepuffs. If one of these Portrait would react to a person whose house is unknown, would this count as cannonical proof? (I don't know if this happens in the game, though)--Rodolphus 10:37, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

If you've got the game, could you verify this new page? I've never heard of this one, so I'm not sure how best to proceed with cleanup. - Nick O'Demus 11:31, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Ted Lupin Pic

The main infobox image for Ted Lupin can't be canon. There's a McDonald's in the background. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 14:23, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

ya thats awsome

Aurora Sinistra

Once again, even though he has no proof, Pol187 is adding photos to Aurora Sinistra, and changing the article to fit the pictures from the movies. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 14:00, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

I'm adding photos about Sinistra,once again, because the actress who apparears in the film have the look of the minifigure who apparears in the game.What do you think about this, Seth? I would be interested to know your opinion.Thanks!Pol 871 15:10, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

While I agree that she's almost certainly Sinestra, I'm not so sure about the recent changes to Septima Vector. Has it been verified that she really is this person and not this person? - Nick O'Demus 22:04, July 7, 2010 (UTC)
Yes;she uses the same clothes in the lego minifig.Pol 871 23:06, July 7, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Seth!

I wanted to ask what you think of these unidentified teachers:

They may be a Ministry wizards,no?Pol 871 09:25, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I think they added an extra table to place Ministry wizards. It is unlikely they are teachers because the extra table appears only in that film adaptation.
--El Profeta Vespertino 09:39, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
yes, it certainly can not demostrated.But, perhaps, it could be that initially, the unidentified female teacher was a ministry witch.Pol 871 10:54, July 8, 2010 (UTC)
