Upset and No Response

Hello. I created a page about the Dracorex Hogwartsia, which is a dinosaur named after Harry Potter. I put the label of it being from the real world as well as links to all the sites to prove it legit. It's on Wikipedia, JKR has talked about it, and no other fandom has a dinosaur named after it.

The first person who deleted it said because it was fanon. It's not fanon, and they never replied, so I re-made it. Someone did nominate it for deletion because they were not sure if it should have its own page and wanted to discuss it. Then, just a little bit ago Cavalier One deleted it, and the only thing written was speedy deletion. I asked why and have not gotten a response.

Am I missing something here? Because none of this makes sense. Sev Lover Forever 21:27, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, I am upset and angry because, you deleted my 1st page. I would like to know why it was deleted. I was working on it, and very proud of it! Please respond. Ginnyweasleyrules78 22:34, March 23, 2012 (UTC)

Reply about Dracorex

Hi, I don't know how else to reply. I think it should have it's own page because it is a pretty unique and special thing for the fandom. Also, the wikipedia page is insufficient. It has some information, but not all of it. I just mentioned it to disprove the fanon claim. I have about a full page in Word about it, and it took a lot of research to compile it.

Also, to me it doesn't seem like a behind the scenes thing. I mean, it's not a reference to the castle itself, but to the whole Harry Potter world. It shows how influential JKR and the books have been. She talked about it, there were news articles and blog posts about it. After all, Twilight and The Hunger Games are big, but they don't have a dinosaur named after them. It's something that sets Harry Potter apart.

Also, how long does an article have to be to be a page? I mean, I saw an article about the rabbit Tom Riddle killed. It was literally a quote and three sentences.

Thank you for the reply, as well. Sev Lover Forever 23:28, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

Blue Racer and Opheodrys

Hi Seth. I'm writing to you because we can't keep editing Blue Racer and Opheodrys only by writing summaries. Therefore i'm asking you what kind of sources you want on these pages, since i already have said that these snakes look exactly like Blue Racer and Opheodrys. --Danniesen 19:40, March 27, 2012 (Denmark)

I fully understand you, i just didn't know what you wanted. What would you say we should do with them, then? --Danniesen 20:10, March 27, 2012 (Denmark)
If there is absolutely no source that provides it (I couldn't find any, can you?) we should delete it. We could list the snakes and associated pictures to some Behind The Scenes sections. Furthermore i can't delete pages unless you give me administrator position. --Danniesen 20:55, March 27, 2012 (Denmark)
However, we could also let them stay and rename the Unidentified snake I and Unidentified snake II. --Danniesen 21:00, March 27, 2012 (Denmark)


As you said, inserting header templates on pages, informing that particular article or section can expire may turn out to be over-productive. Yes, I completely agree with that and I must say I didn't think my idea over thoroughly before telling you about this. I wouldn't have done any template, before consulting with some experienced contributor, administrator, and obviously I wouldn't now. Thus, maybe you want to learn about my second idea? What about making a letter infobox. I've noticed, there are many letter articles so I reckon It wouldn't be so bad if we made such template (fields including e.g. adressee, author/sender, written [the date of writing]). I'm aware you may think it's silly, but without asking somebody, I won't find out what others think of it. Colin Fletcher 16:27, April 2, 2012 (UTC)

Well, I think you should do that. I may confuse something. Colin Fletcher Owl Post

Need your help

I am creating a wiki for my Harry Potter Series. E.g. Harry Potter fanon wiki, but I cannot get infoboxes like on here, to work. How do you do them? I've been trying for several hours, and it is actually making me consider giving up writing Fanfiction and coming on to this wiki too.HarryPotterRules1 01:42, April 3, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, it looks brilliant. So I can start putting that in articles on letters, right? Colin Fletcher Owl Post

Special messengers

Do you think the article can be improved and then kept?--Rodolphus 14:44, April 7, 2012 (UTC)


About the exhibitition Portraits. Can you read other names? I´d say the witch's first name is Daria.--Rodolphus 17:07, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

It could be "Daria Lutima Creaseworthy. " Perhaps Daria is a relative of Lutima. Canon shows that the Map doesn´t list full names. It does´t list A. P. W. B. Dumbledore for example.--Rodolphus 17:53, April 7, 2012 (UTC)

Pottermore Opening

Well, with Pottermore finally open to the public, I've signed up, and I'll probably start being a bit more active here again. I've put my Pottermore name on my userpage if you'd like to add me as a friend there. I was sorted into Hufflepuff. ProfessorTofty 19:45, April 14, 2012 (UTC)

I'm sure we won't, as I'm sure that we both accept information has been stated as canon. That is, um, whatever mysterious source it is that designates things as canon. ;) It doesn't look like you've done much dueling, but I went ahead and challenged you to one anyway, so I hope you'll give it a go, if you'd like. 00:35, April 15, 2012 (UTC)

Somebody created a page Gonchi The Great that says it's from Pottermore, but it looks like fanon.


Hi, a vandal (Special:Contributions/ continues to clear pages. I've warned him twice on his discussion page. Thanks, - ƃuıuɹoɥʇ(Send me an owl) 18:40, April 18, 2012 (UTC)

Well, here we are again...

Hi Seth, how are you? Sorry I've not been around much lately. I've been engrossed in Pottermore;) I hate to quote you on this, but you did say "a few weeks". Well, it's been considerably longer than that and Dannien's behaviour has not changed one bit! Yesterday I warned him (for what seems like the millionth time) about copying Wikipedia content, and removing delete tags from articles. I'm not sure what good I expected it to do. Evidently the answear is "none", as, less than 24 hours later he did it again!. Anyway, as always, you're the admin, so the ball's in your court. However, I sincerly hope you will honour our agreement, and put a stop to his nonsense one and for all. Thank you. Jayden Matthews 13:49, April 22, 2012 (UTC) PS: I've also noticed several off-topic blogs cropping up the past few weeks or so that need to be deleted per the blog policy. Thanks. Jayden Matthews 14:04, April 25, 2012 (UTC)


Hey I'm llama48, an admin on The Regular Show Wiki. I am a small fan of Harry Potter, and was doing a research paper on Harry Potter, when i stumbled across this wiki. I saw u were the first guy who showed up, and i REALLY admire your work. U have been working hard as an admin to help get this wiki where it needs to be. If u want to respond, please respond on my REGULAR SHOW WIKI ACCOUNT TALK PAGE!!! if that is ok.....

thanks, and Utopia!! XD Llama48 Ya can't beat the life of a slacker. 21:30, April 23, 2012 (UTC)

Re Re: Hello

Yes, i very much agree. On our wiki, we have several users trying to vandalize our wiki, and admins, like me, have kept it on a smooth level. Llama48 Ya can't beat the life of a slacker. 00:46, April 25, 2012 (UTC)


Thank you, and for the blogs as well. What I find the most frustrating about this saga is that he demonstrated on numerous occasions the fact that he knew how to edit properly, and productively. He simply chose not to, which, in my opinion, is doubly unnaceptable. Oh, and I couldn't help but notice Downton Abbey listed as a favourite wiki of yours! I didn't even know it had reached the States yet! Jayden Matthews 16:21, April 25, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I love it too! It's a great thing to escape into. Sorry, I thought you were from Texas for some strange reason. Where abouts in Europe are you from? Jayden Matthews 16:59, April 25, 2012 (UTC)
I wish I knew, I really do... This will bug me now until I figure it out! Whish I lived in Portugal;) Jayden Matthews 17:07, April 25, 2012 (UTC)


Could you have a look on the talk pages of Kettleburn and Martial magic?

On Pottermore, I have been Sorted into Ravenclaw, and I always assumed I´d be a Ravenclaw. That's great.--Rodolphus 13:44, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome

I plan on being as helpful to the community as possible... if there's anything (no matter how annoying it may be) you need done around here, let me know. :) If the ninja skills don't get you, my army of weiner dogs will! iKayla :) 23:27, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Sign Up

Hi Seth. I want to Sign Up on this Wiki, but when I'm trying it says that a User already have this username, even though the User doesn't exist. --Wikia constributor


Hey, Seth. I've been trying to clean out the red links recently, and several have turned up in your talk page and archives. Since it looks like there are quite a few, I thought I'd check with you first and get the OK before I start clearing them out.

Also, I asked Grunny about the spacing issue with the family tree templates, and he said he'd take a look at it later on. - Nick O'Demus 06:35, May 14, 2012 (UTC)

Notability Policy Vote

Hiya, Seth. With Speedysnitch's go-ahead, I'm trying to drum up some voting on the proposed notability policy. As someone who has stated before that the policy is badly needed, could you please visit the vote to pass the policy as is and if you agre that we should, go ahead vote on it? Or if not, post what you think still needs to be done to put the policy in a state where we can implement it? ProfessorTofty 23:04, May 17, 2012 (UTC)

Umm, could you please add my B-Day to Starstuff's List of User's Birthdays? I couldn't figure out how. It is on March 21st.

How do you add the template: User boxes? Thehelper1 17:07, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hello, when I see recent activity on this wiki, the admin edits are orange. How exactly do you do that, as I would like to do that on my own wiki. May you please show me how? --{{SUBST:HCSig}} 13:29, May 28, 2012 (UTC) (Signature doesn't work here.) User:Hermione Chase

First known wizard

Who is the first known wizard? I couldnt find it anywhere on the wiki. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Flozzlenoozle (talkcontribs).

HI Seth,

I sent you an email, to this address- Did you get it? I'm trying to put you in touch with our Direct of Programming, Eric Moro, about some good stuff. Lemme know if there's a better email to reach you at...

Peter@Wikia 23:19, May 30, 2012 (UTC)

Need your opinion

A need a second opinion on something. I'm going to go through the books and interviews and add references for all the known wand properties. But, for example, Sirius Black's wand is noted to have a length of 15 inches, and the only source I can find for this is the Noble Collection replica. While I know merchandise can usually qualify as Tier 3 Canon, I'm a bit hesitant about using the Noble figures, since some of them are pretty far off established canon. (The Noble replicas for Harry's, Draco's, and Voldemort's wands are all 14 inches.) So do you think 15 inches should be accepted as canon, or should it just be mentioned as a BTS note? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Nick O'Demus (talkcontribs).


Hi, Seth! I just saw that you changed my signature on Talk:Nagini#Nagini and the Death Eaters. I do now ask me: Why? Is there a problem with my sig?  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 22:35, June 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, Seth! Thanks for the information and sorry about my mistake. When I saw this in the header stood your name as changer of the page. That yours was another change I hadn't recognized. O. k., who knows what anon users think to do such things.  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 11:26, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

Hi! I am really wondering why the word "always" is so special... Can you explain? 04:14, June 6, 2012 (UTC)Confused Harry Potter Lover

I don't understand the question. Why do you think that the word "always" is so special?  Harry granger   Talk  contribs 11:57, June 6, 2012 (UTC)

School List

Hi seth

was wondering if we have pages for school requirements if not i could look into it if you want

sorry previous message by Nicksterdude123 05:22, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

Since you are an admin, I couldn't think of anyone else to ask, but why is Ginny Weasly's page locked.GoyleandBellatrixfan 17:04, June 12, 2012 (UTC)

Book Club

Hi Seth, just a heads up, we're live with the book club announcement-->

I also added a slider image with link on the main page (you were missing a fourth, so hope that works). Hope you will have time to join the live chats! Peter@Wikia 20:47, June 19, 2012 (UTC)

I am curious why you felt compelled to undo the changes I had made to "Mirror of Erised", especially ones such as that to the first line of the section entitled "Powers", which, in its current form, makes no grammatical sense.

Have I transgressed some particular protocols of which I was unaware? Jiskran 07:57, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you for checking my "Mirror" edit. As it seems within your capacity to do so, and I have already failed twice in the endeavour, could you amend the caption in the "Dungeon Troll" entry to read "the" rather than "th"? I am aware this is pendantry at its most perilous, but for me it is the visible counterpart of nails on a blackboard. Alex Jiskran 11:19, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Some anonymous soul has added an advert page about holidays in Italy, entitled KempfCobb400. I presume that some level of administrative authority is required to perform deletions. Jiskran (talk) 13:27, June 27, 2012 (UTC)

The link correction you've made to "Architect of Hogwarts" takes a reader to the book, not the game. Jiskran (talk) 17:31, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

That makes complete sense. Jiskran (talk) 19:03, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

Some anonymous moron is defacing the "Elder Wand" page. Jiskran (talk) 20:15, June 28, 2012 (UTC)

I understand the principle entailed, but on so insubstantial an article as "Muggles Who Notice", it seems a shame not tobe able to append a logical and related piece of canon data. Alex Jiskran (talk) 19:43, June 30, 2012 (UTC)

As I said, I recognise entirely the validity of the reasoning. Jiskran (talk) 20:37, June 30, 2012 (UTC)
