JamesVI

Hei Starstuff, how are you? I trust you already know that Seth blocked JamesVI for a year for constantly being an annoyance. However, last night, both Seth and I agreed we should all keep our eyes open as he'll probably try to create a new account. That sound like a plan to you? Thanks!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 12:50, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

House Points Game

I've awarded Slytherin 55 points for your recent creation of several articles. Congrats! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:56, November 6, 2009 (UTC)

Houses

How do I pick a House? I wanna be in Ravenclaw or Slytherin. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Scarletmoon579 (talkcontribs).

Canon Policy

Hi Starstuff. I already notified Seth Cooper, but I just wanted to make sure that you also heard about my suggestion for the policy. All the details are on the Harry Potter wiki:Canon Policy discussion page under the sub-heading, 'A Change to the Policy'. I sincerely urge you to have a look at this whenever you can since it describes a matter of rather great importance. No one has responded yet and it has been a number of hours since I posted it so I'm feeling a little anxious about it now. Could you please read it A.S.A.P.? Sorry if I sound impatient, but this is the type of thing that I think all the admins need to discuss together. Thanks!--Yin&Yang 06:52, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Sourcing

Hey Starstuff,

I've just started working on a re-write of the article Room of Requirement. I decided to start by sourcing the whole thing, but I seem to be having some trouble with the <ref> tag. Could you help me? You can either leave a message on my talk page, or on my parchment. Thanks so much! QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 02:15, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. I think its working now. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 06:48, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

RE:JamesVI

Thanks Starstuff. I'm glad you agree. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 12:10, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

Remus Lupin's glasses

Hey Starstuff,

Christian Serrano has just created this article, and I'm not sure it deserves its own article. I didn't want to put up a deletion tag before I had another user's opinion. What do you think? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Quidditch Lover (talkcontribs) 20:57, November 21, 2009.

I have no clue where that image is from. I don't even recall Lupin wearing glasses at all. But then, I may be sadly mistaken, because I haven't watched the movie in a while. QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 06:42, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

925!

Hi! I've just awarded you 925 points on the House Points Game for all your unrecognised article creations since the start of the second term of the HPG. Congrats! Now Slytherin in on the lead with 1080 points! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 02:56, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Room of Requirement Re-write

Hey Starstuff,

Do you think you could help me do a re-write of Room of Requirement? I've started working on it on my parchment, as I think you're already aware. However, I think I'm going to need a little help because this is the first time I'm attempting a major re-write. Could you help me, please? Thanks, QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 06:45, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. That's quite enough. Sourcing is my main problem, so if you could help with that, just that would be a great burden off my mind. I just need some guidance as to what to do and what not to do. Thanks again! QuidditchLoverSnitch 2(My talk)(contribs) 02:12, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Question

Where do you find that information like by Sibia, the teacher from Divination. it can only briefly seen, but where do you find this great great information?--Station7 16:05, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, that was I did mean. Thanks!--Station7 20:23, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

ElkinsPotter.com

Sorry for that... Now i understand. --ÈnŔîčö DCRavenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 00:37, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Moving pages

Hey Starstuff :). Just thought I'd let you know, rather than moving files and then having to delete the redirect admins can now suppress redirects so a redirect isn't created. When moving pages, below the reason box you should see "Leave a redirect behind" with a ticked box next to it. If you remove the tick from this box before moving the file/page, a redirect won't be created and you won't have to constantly delete the redirects :-). Grunny (Talk) 08:38, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the tip. :) Starstuff (Owl me!) 11:08, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Your opinion

Hi, Startstuff. I was wandering if I could ask your opinion on something, as an Administrator? These past few weeks, I've been working on a proposition to change the Wiki's skin. It's not quite ready yet, but it soon will be. It can be viewed here [1]. What I'd like your opinion on is - is this worth the time and effort I'm putting into it, or am I going to get burned at the stake for suggesting it? I've asked a couple of other users, and, so far the reaction has been entirely positive, but, still, I'd like your opinion. Please bear in mind it's not quite finished yet. There's still alot of features I'd like to incorporate into it, and Seth has suggested some things I could do to improve it. Jayden Matthews 10:10, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Red links

Recently, I've been working on cleaning out the Wanted Pages, and I'm almost done. There are a few left in some Users' talk pages and archives, and I feel I should mention I already fixed a couple in yours before it occured to me that I should be asking permission before making alterations to somebody else's talk page archives. I'd like to finish checking, if you don't mind, and if you like, when I'm done I can leave a full account of any changes I made. Thanks, and sorry if I jumped the gun a little. - Nick O'Demus 17:31, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Done. Here's the list of the changes:
Archive 6 - 1 link to deleted article
Archive 7 - 1 deleted article & 3 deleted forums
Archive 8 - fixed 1 link
Current talk page - 1 deleted article

Skin

Hi Starstuff. Just thought I'd let you know that my proposal for changing the site's skin is now on the forum. Jayden Matthews 19:18, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

Wow. Thank you so much. And thank you for the supportive comments on the forum. I don't wish to seem like a glory whore, but could I ask for some outstanding points for the articles I've created recently? Jayden Matthews 14:11, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you very much. Jayden Matthews 14:48, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Real-world dates

Ok. No problem, I just removed them to avoid controversy around the discussion on the canonicity of the Millennium Bridge, but you're probably right as in that case nothing leads us to think that info is false. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:13, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Ah, and thanks for the points, by the way. =) --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:13, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Policy template

Hey, on the Policy template, the word guideline is mispelt, the e is left out. It is part of Family Guidelines. I listed it on the talk page and in the Editprotect category. It is also like that on the policytable template too. Could you fix that? Thanks RatneerOwl Alert! 23:48, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks RatneerOwl Alert! 23:57, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Recent Wiki activity

Some of the stuff going on right now that concerns the wiki:

  1. Jayden's Proposal to change the Wiki's Skin, voting in progress
  2. Grunny's proposal to bring in his bot for cleanup edits, voting in progress
  3. Oread's proposal about establishing some standards for the Relationships sections
  4. Vote to change the main image of the Harry Potter article, voting started
  5. Discussion of guidelines on unidentified individuals, no recent activity
  6. Voting on an "offical"set of Hogwarts crests, no recent activity

I was wondering if there is some sort of Wiki "bulletin board", such as something that could be added to the Community Portal, or a forum topic that could be stickied so as to stay on top, so that it would be easier for everybody to keep track of these things. - Nick O'Demus 18:39, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

featured quote always you three

I hate to be a pain but the quote that has been promoted is in correct I've just rewatched HBP and the quote should be McGonagall: "Why is it, whenever someting happens, it is always you three?" Ron: "Believe me, Professor, I’ve been asking myself the same question for six years." — McGonagall questions Harry, Ron, and Hermione[src]

House Points Game

It's been 3 months. So has this term reached the end, or do you think it should run a little bit longer? - Nick O'Demus 19:49, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Another two weeks, or maybe an even month? It's your call. Let me know, and I'll start notifying the Prefects they'll have a bit longer to review their House participants' contributions and award some points. - Nick O'Demus 06:58, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
Alright, I'll get the word out. - Nick O'Demus 18:39, December 24, 2009 (UTC)

Template:FA

I noticed you had locked the Gsnitch image to prevent vandalism. That makes sense, but shouldnt you protect the actual Template:FA too. Someone could just vandalise that anyways. -- Ratneer Owl Me! 03:44, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

No problem, I usually read all the talk pages, and saw the part on yours about the protection of the images and went to check out the FA template, and saw it was unprotected. -- Ratneer Owl Me! 04:01, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Sure

I agree with you , it should be protected , but my point is why don't you -as an administrator- change it , i didn't mean -why cant -we- change it- but -why don't you change it- =)

RE:Reference images

I'll see that I do. Happy Christmas, by the way! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 05:59, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Creating a page.

Thank you for your welcome. I was wondering if you could tell me how to create a page with information on a character or object, etc.? Thanks —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jamish (talkcontribs).

Cedrella Black

When it mention's her birth, it says she was born between the years 1916-1918 because Charis was born in 1919. It's possible she was born in 1919, just before Charis that year. Scarletmoon579 02:21, December 29, 2009 (UTC)Scarletmoon579Ravenclawcrest(Talk to me!)

Fabian and Gideon Prewett

Starstuff I have to talk to you about something. It's about the Fabian and Gideon Prewett page I created. I know it's a disambaguation page but the Fred and George Weasley page is too but it has information on them both. So if you don't mind then I want the other page to have the same information. Don't you think that's what it needs? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 13:01, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

RE:RE:Prewett brothers

Thanks Starstuff. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 14:11, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Selected Pictures

Sorry about that, I didnt know the admin thing. I was only trying to clean things up. -- Ratneer Owl Me! 21:56, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Dittany Etymology

I think the article on dittany should have an etymology section. I found out what it is, so can a just put it in there? --Scarletmoon579 01:08, January 5, 2010 (UTC)Scarletmoon579Ravenclawcrest(Talk to me!)

They're baaaaaaack
