Vandals

Thanks for being vigilant about reverting the recent vandalism. - Nick O'Demus 05:40, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Usually whenever someone posts a message or makes an edit to your talk page, you get a very insistent little popup telling you about it in the lower left of any screen you go to on any wiki affiliated with Wikia, and it will keep showing up until you go to your talk page, which clicking on the link in the popup will take you to. So it's kind of hard to miss. There's also the Help:Editing page which covers the basics. A link to it has been added to the "Community" dropdown near the top of the page, which shows up on just about any page you go to on this wiki, as well as just below the copyright warning near the bottom whenever you try to edit a page. - Nick O'Demus 11:56, April 23, 2011 (UTC)

Rollback

Have you considered requesting Rollback privileges? It makes doing reverts a bit easier. - Nick O'Demus 07:02, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

Just save the image from the Wikipedia page and, when you upload it here, fill out the template with this information (you can just copy this whole thing as you see it here and paste it in when you do the upload). - Nick O'Demus 05:28, May 3, 2011 (UTC)

No problem. I'll explain a bit more just in case you upload more pictures. The only really important parts of the {{Information}} template are the Description, Source, Licensing, and Categories.
  1. Description: Pretty self-explanatory.
  2. Source: A link to where the picture was from. If it's Harry Potter stuff, link to it here on the wiki (like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (film), or something). If it's not Harry Potter-related, try to link to a Wikipedia page instead, or to the web address where you got it from.
  3. Licensing: {{Screenshot}} will probably be the most commonly used one here, for pictures from the movies or video games. Other copyright tags can be found here. If you're not sure, you can use {{Don't know}} temporarily when you first upload the picture, and ask another experienced user or admin later.
  4. Categories: Most image categories (other than Category:User images) are titled something like Image of _____ or Images from _____. So if your picture was of Harry and Hermione from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film), you would add the categories: Images of Harry Potter, Images of Hermione Granger, and Images from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film).
Hope this helps. - Nick O'Demus 10:38, May 5, 2011 (UTC)

Subtitle

hey u!

i dont think i have used any subtitle containing picture in the bluebell flames page

and if i have made a mistake then correct me rather than re-edit my page

then guide me how to name a page in the infobox

everytime i upload a photo in the infobox, the original name of the page gets replaced by {{{name}}}

and very sorry for being rude.

but how can I remove {{{name}}} whenever i upload a picture in the infobox


and now u can see in the Reducio page that i have uploaded a pic that has no subtitles.

but plz tell me how did u do that?

how did u remove {{{}}} from {{{Reducio}}}

plzzz

I used to have rich text editor checked, but found that it was kinda glitchy when using google chrome, so I took it off, maybe if you go on community central wiki, and get in the chat room there, monchoman is really great with technical issues.--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 15:57, May 7, 2011 (UTC)

Warning templates

These are some of the Warning templates we use. They make it easier when notifying other users of violations. - Nick O'Demus 23:15, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

{{British}} - an fyi that we use british spelling and grammar.
{{Past tense}} - an fyi that in-universe character articles are written in past-tense.
{{Fanon}} - for users adding fanon to pages or creating fanon articles.
{{Vandal}} - for relatively minor vandalism, or generally unhelpful edits.
{{Vandal2}} - for persistent or major vandalism, such as vulgarity, profanity, or explicit material.
{{Last}} - for repeated and deliberate vandalism, make sure you inform an admin about the user's actions.
If you prefer a more personal approach, that's fine. As far as the Rich Text Editor, Grunny or Cavalier One would be the ones to talk to. They know more about formatting and wikia programming than just about anybody else here. - Nick O'Demus 05:19, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

this means that i do not have to sign my edited pages and summary for photo uploads.

Amortality

I'm afraid I did not manage to express myself clearly on the matter in the edit summary thingy. What I meant was that God, according to the Jewish/Christian belief systems, always existed and is timeless (for He already existed before the creation of the Universe and, presumably, time itself). Thus, He always was, and was never born. Something that was never born cannot be considered to be living, as such it would make more sense, in this context, to label Him an amortal being rather than an immortal being. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:19, May 14, 2011 (UTC)

No offense taken, of course! It is precisely because He is limitless I believe He is amortal.
  1. What changed is the content of the article. The first page was just a page with information copied from Wikipedia and with quite a few fanonical claims (i.e. God was a wizard). The second one was speedy deleted because it had no content (was blank).
  2. It is not meant to be a religious debate, it an analysis of "God" strictly as a character in the books.
