Snakes

You're an ophidiophobe too, eh? Nice to know I'm not the only one around here. --Cubs Fan2007 16:15, 31 May 2008 (UTC)

Ya, i'm like terrified of snakes, even when a see a picture of one, i start to get woozy. I don't why i'm scared though, because i never had any terrifying experiances or encounters with it.Skrox29 01:17, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

You are just like indiana jones lol. Im only scared of snakes that have poison in them... what if you got Sorted in Slytherin house and you saw the slytherin emblem? Aguabottle 01:26, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Um.. that's a good question. But, i don't think if i went to hogwarts i would end up in slytherin because i don't want to go there. But, if i did end up there, i would be freaked out but i would probably suck it up.Skrox29 22:40, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Prefect Badges

YOu do not gain anything by getting a prefect badge, they are just given by members of the community to each other to just show that certain contributions have been noted. Please see {{Prefect}} for more. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 15:31, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Warning

Just lettin ya know...way to many of your edits are on your Userpage and Forum pages. Right now only 18.18% of your edits are on article pages. 75.76% of your edits are on either User or Forum pages. We would hate to see you blocked or have your userpage protected so you can't edit it. See Harry Potter Wiki:Editing Policy for the official policy. Just thought I'd let ya know, because you're a great user and we would all hate to see you blocked for something like that. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks. -- Freakatone Talk 22:58, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

It's not that you can't make edits to Leaky Cauldron and User pages, it's just that they shouldn't be your primary contribution to this wiki. Forum and User page edits are fine, as long as they aren't excessive. And thanks for the congrats! -- Freakatone Talk 23:23, 9 June 2008 (UTC)
As Freakatone linked above the full policy is available here. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:25, 9 June 2008 (UTC)

Epilogue

I think its pretty terrible because:

  1. Its poorly written.
  2. It could have been expanded a lot more. The material she offered seemed cheap in a lot of ways. It was kind of just like an after thought. It seemed to me that it was added kind of like "Oh shoot, I need to tell the audience that Harry and Ginny / Ron and Hermione do get together. But I don't feel like telling the story of how...so I'm just gonna say it." I mean I don't have a problem with the fact that we know they have that "destiny" (I mean there're writing Star Wars books that happen before what we know...just explaining how the Universe got to that point...but I don't like the way it was done with the Harry Potter epilogue.)
  3. Everything seems too perfect in it. Why is everything perfect and cute? All the names are recycled and named after their parents, etc. It cheapens it to me. I feel like in the 10 years or whatever something bad would've occured. But it seems like they defeated Voldemort and poof, no more evil wizards. Give me a break.
Anyway, I hope that explains it a bit. I mean its not like I disown it. I just feel it had so much more potential. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:18, 15 June 2008 (UTC)

See {{Scroll box}}. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:05, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

No problem. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:28, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Warning again

I thought I'd remind you of the Editing Policy. I know you have already been warned, but at that time you only had too many forum edits. Now you have too many Userpage edits. 27% of your edits is too high; you need to bring it at or below 15%.--Matoro183 (Talk) 21:28, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Read the Editing Policy. User page edits must be below 15%, and forums under 10%.--Matoro183 (Talk) 21:39, 3 July 2008 (UTC)

Re: Leaky Cauldron

It was decided to focus the discussions taking place here on the Harry Potter Wiki instead of the Harry Potter universe (wiki vs. content). I'm not sure where the original discussion took place -- it may have been on IRC. But the decision was not taken lightly.

The Help Desk is quite simply what the name implies...a place to ask for help with editing, understanding policy, etc. anything wiki related. If you have anymore questions about either of these feel free to ask. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 16:44, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

This is the original discussion where we decided to get rid of the forum. You can see there why it was deleted.--Matoro183 (Talk) 16:57, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
