Re:Help

I'm not sure what you mean by you keep getting your name spelt wrong? Your username is the name you signed up with. You can sign up for another account if you'd like but the spelling of your account cannot just be changed. I'm not positive I understand what you need though. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 22:20, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Chat

What can I help you w/? -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 00:24, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

At the top of the page there is a "Move" button. Click that and then type in the new title. Where will you be moving it to? The old page will be made into a redirect automatically. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 00:35, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
I believe it says that Molly kills Bellatrix, but I'm not positive. I do not have my books with me to check. You can use that articles talk page to discuss it if you would like. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 00:41, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
I would suggest using the talk page for Random bursts of magic to discuss where to move it to. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 01:21, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
I think that probably sounds like a better idea. :) -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 23:22, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Move

To move the page, look at the list of tabs along the top of the page (the ones that say Article, Discussion, Edit, History, etc). There should be a tab that says Move. Click that, then another screen will appear with the name of the page you want to move, an empty box to type the name of the new page, and another box for stating your reasons why you moved it. Type the name that you want the page to be moved to into the appropriate box, and a brief description of your reasons in the box below that one. Finally save it, and the page will be moved to the new name, with the old name acting as a redirect. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 09:11, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Featured Articles

Never worry about bugging me - that's what I'm here for! Sure I can chat, but it looks like we're usually on at different times so the response may not be immediate. What do you want to know? - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 06:48, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

As far as I know, its always been like that. Its just that in the last few months, we have had more FA nominations so a queue started to form. DarkJedi613 and I wrote a Featured Article guide that governs the promotion of featured articles, and organised a queue that moves onto the next article on a roughly monthly basis. New FAs are placed at the end of the queue, ready to take their turn on the front page. As it is, the article we have on the front page, Luna Lovegood, was promoted back in August at the same time as Ginny Weasley and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Up till now, the changing of FAs on the front page had not been regular, and we have addressed that. Ideally, I would like to have a different article weekly, or even bi-weekly, but we're a long way off from that, if ever. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 16:24, 15 October 2007 (UTC)
Ah, yes, I can see the confusion from the main page link, and I have changed it. Thanks for pointing it out! As for the signature, here goes: To make yourself a signature you have to first create a signature subpage, such as User:Tyminator1/signature - just click on the link to get started. Then, once you've managed to create your signature subpage (check out Wikipedia Signatures to see the possible coding), you have to go up to the "My Preferences" link at the top, and under the "User Profile" tab in the box next to "Nickname", copy and paste the following: {{subst:User:Tyminator1/signature}}, and check the Raw Signature box below it. Once that's done, typing four tildes (~~~~) will produce the signature you have just created. Its a little involved, but it looks nice. If you need a hand with it, let me know. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:35, 20 October 2007 (UTC)
You don't really need to do a lot of that. If you go to "My Preferences," look under the "User profile" tab and change your "nickname" to something like this: -- [[User:Tyminator1|Tyminator1]] <sup>([[User_talk:Tyminator1|Talk]])</sup>. Make sure you check off the "Raw signature" checkbox and press save! -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:33, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
Make sure you check off the "Raw signatures" options. (You can read here for more information -- although its kinda confusing). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 14:18, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Re: Date Articles

They're just there to keep track of events that happened in each year. Personally I don't really use them at all, but they could be useful I suppose. Like to see what was happening while someone was born or such. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 20:30, 24 October 2007 (UTC)

Kill Harry

Personally, no, but others may have a reason to keep it. Slap a {{delete}} tag on it and list it at Category talk:Candidates for deletion and see what others think. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:35, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Re: Chapter

I'd bring it up again in the forums and try and get more opinions. John Reaves (talk) 22:42, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

I agree with John. Pretty much what happened in the past was articles were made but had little to no content. They were never expanded on and we eventually deleted them. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 06:44, 8 January 2008 (UTC)
I'd write one up in your user space (e.g. User:Tyminator1/Sandbox and see what the community thinks. John Reaves (talk) 04:32, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
It means write a draft at that red linked page and post somewhere and see what people think of it. John Reaves (talk) 14:13, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
Worry about the content before the template. John Reaves (talk) 14:38, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Layout and skin

Well if you go to "preferences" you can choose to not view custom skins. So you can use whatever skin you want then. Or if you just don't like the gray background you can edit your monaco.css and change it (User:Tyminator1/monaco.css). -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 04:05, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

Answering your question about Bella.

She showed little owtward affection to het husband, because she didn't love him. She loved the Dark Lord, completely and utterly. Never liked her husband at all. Hope that clears it up!
