Hi, do you know how to edit the redirection in [[Isobel MacDougal]]. Someone made an error and put '''Katherine''' MacDougal see [[Katherine (disambiguation)]] and redirected it to Isobel MacDougal, but the name was '''Katrina''' MacDougal see [[Katrina (disambiguation)]]. How do you change the redirection from Katherine MacDougal to Katerina MacDougal so that I can delete Katherine MacDougal from the disambiguation.
That's okay. Thanks for telling me. :) [[User:Henryjh98|Expelliarmus! ]] ([[User talk:Henryjh98|talk]]) 13:10, August 14, 2012 (UTC)

:Rowling showed her original hand-written list of students in Harry's year in the 2001 TV special ''[[Harry Potter and Me]]''. Steve Vander Ark of the Harry Potter Lexicon managed to [http://www.hp-lexicon.org/about/sources/source_hpm.html reconstruct] half the list from screenshots of the special. This was all that HP fandom had to go on for years. People did their best to work out the names, but the reconstructed image was low resolution and incomplete, and in addition the list itself was stained and crumpled, and Rowling's penmanship somewhat scrawly.

:Katrina/Isobel MacDougal is listed at the bottom of the left page in the image. Rowling's finger is partially obscuring the name "Katrina," so that only the "Katr-" part is clearly visible, and her "r" looks like it could be an "h." So "Katherine MacDougal" was a best guess at transcribing the name from the low-quality image. Rowling released an official transcription of the list on Pottermore in 2011. This clarified that the name on the list was actually "Katrina MacDougal."

== Harry Potter Wizard's Collection ==
 
 
Did you buy it? If so, good score. I would love to have it, but I just don't have the cash to plunk down on a pricey collector's object like that at the moment. [[User:ProfessorTofty|ProfessorTofty]] ([[User talk:ProfessorTofty|talk]]) 16:07, September 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
:Yes. I wasn't planning to get it originally, but I saw it when I was at the store buying something else, and the guy who worked there said they were only getting one in, so I made a "now or never" kind of decision. Used money I had put aside for a Wii U, since there's not really any launch titles in which I'm interested, and Wii U's will be produced for the next 5-10 years, whereas there's only going to be 60,000 Wizard's Collections made.
 
 
:It's a very cool collection. Every HP movie release in one convenient box — albeit a very large, heavy one. Before pulling out any of the drawers, it's a cube a little under a foot high and wide, and weighs like 10 pounds. If you want to get one, try to to pick it up in a store, because I imagine shipping would be a small fortune on top of its already expensive asking price. <font color="Green">★</font> [[User:Starstuff|<font face="Times" color="green">S</font><font face="Times" color="dimgrey">t</font><font face="Times" color="green">a</font><font face="Times" color="dimgrey">r</font><font face="Times" color="green">s</font><font face="Times" color="dimgrey">t</font><font face="Times" color="green">u</font><font face="Times" color="dimgrey">f</font><font face="Times" color="green">f</font>]] <sup>[[User talk:Starstuff|<font face="Times" color="darkgreen">(Owl me!)</font>]]</sup> 16:38, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

Should be Katrina MacDougal not Katherine [1] (Vaudree (talk) 07:44, December 7, 2015 (UTC))

RequestEdit

Hey,

So I was just wondering, seeing as you're an admin, if you had any jobs that needed doing because I am very keen to do something for the Wiki but I find myself with nothing much to do most of the time. I am only two and a half months old on the HPW but as I said, I am very keen to help out.

Katherine redirectionEdit

Hi, do you know how to edit the redirection in Isobel MacDougal. Someone made an error and put Katherine MacDougal see Katherine (disambiguation) and redirected it to Isobel MacDougal, but the name was Katrina MacDougal see Katrina (disambiguation). How do you change the redirection from Katherine MacDougal to Katerina MacDougal so that I can delete Katherine MacDougal from the disambiguation.

I did not edit the Isobel page but left a message in the box saying what you edited.(Vaudree (talk) 04:34, December 21, 2015 (UTC))

Rowling showed her original hand-written list of students in Harry's year in the 2001 TV special Harry Potter and Me. Steve Vander Ark of the Harry Potter Lexicon managed to reconstruct half the list from screenshots of the special. This was all that HP fandom had to go on for years. People did their best to work out the names, but the reconstructed image was low resolution and incomplete, and in addition the list itself was stained and crumpled, and Rowling's penmanship somewhat scrawly.
Katrina/Isobel MacDougal is listed at the bottom of the left page in the image. Rowling's finger is partially obscuring the name "Katrina," so that only the "Katr-" part is clearly visible, and her "r" looks like it could be an "h." So "Katherine MacDougal" was a best guess at transcribing the name from the low-quality image. Rowling released an official transcription of the list on Pottermore in 2011. This clarified that the name on the list was actually "Katrina MacDougal."
There's no reason to delete the "Katherine MacDougal" redirect when we can simply create an additional redirect for "Katrina MacDougal." Starstuff (Owl me!) 09:11, February 12, 2016 (UTC)
