Featured articles

Say, 1337star, if you have a moment, could you take a look at some of the Featured articles nominations and possibly vote on them? At the moment, nobody other than me has voted and it'd be good to get things moving on there. ProfessorTofty (talk) 02:41, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

Mimbulus Mimbletonia

Sorry to bother you, but I wondered if you knew where the claim that Mimbulus Mimbletonia can cure shyness and timidity comes from. It isn't from any books, as far as I know, and I don't recall it being mentioned in the films... --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 00:40, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Folio Bruti

Excuse me, but I wondered if you could tell me whether this page provided exact quotes from the video game or just summaries... or indeed if they were accurate. If they are reputable and correct then I can start helping. Not having the video games myself I wouldn't know. Thanks. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 01:44, January 15, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for all your help; as for the second issue, I'll see if anyone else knows about it. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 02:10, January 15, 2013 (UTC)


I'm Belac Reteet.  With all due respect, I disagree with your message.  While it is true that most Half-breeds have one human parent and one non-human parent, the term also applies to all other part humans.

For example, in the Order of the Phoenix, Dolores Umbridge refers to Remus John Lupin as an "emtremely dangerous half-breed".  She also refers to Centaurs as "filthy half-breeds".

Please reply as soon you get this message.  Catch ya later! belacreteet (talk) 22:26, January 17, 2013 (UTC)


Very sorry to see that you're leaving. You had a good run. I do hope that we'll see each other again sometime, perhaps on another wiki, or maybe here if you come back. ProfessorTofty (talk) 04:52, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

I completely understand. That definitely comes first, so take care, and hopefully we will see each other on here from time to time! ProfessorTofty (talk) 04:58, January 21, 2013 (UTC)

Welcome back!

I noticed that you've picked up on editing again. Would it be fair to say that you're officially "back," at least for the time being? And, if so, welcome back! ProfessorTofty (talk) 22:39, March 10, 2013 (UTC)

Talk page

Hello. Hmm. I know you are big at editing. So I have questions on editing. First of all how do you find something you should edit.

(JanzPotter (talk) 22:46, August 19, 2013 (UTC))

So we may not point in funny little notes found on the internet? Just a friendly question. --DCLM (talk) 16:15, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll remember that. --DCLM (talk) 17:08, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the help. I'm new to editing the wiki.



I'm afraid it's the straight-forward, brute-force method. I use an emulator, yes, and edit snapshots together (most of the time having to edit Harry or other NPCs out of the picture). I don't know of any other way to achieving this effect, most of the rooms in the Harry Potter games being so much larger than the screen. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:10, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

Hi. Can you help me?

Thank you! The truth is, it is also vandalism to use people's photos without their consent and create fake pages. Anyway, thanks for your help, and hope this page and photo get deleted soon.

photos in teh order of phoenix page

the fact that they appear in the photo of the original order, gives them the right to be recognized together with others. and about the fact Sturgis Podmore, the photo in question has all the characteristics that describe the character.

Sorry and Thank You.

There are just so many HP spots, I thought maybe I could just get nudged in the right direction, and you did that. Thanks again.Gojirob (talk) 18:04, October 12, 2013 (UTC)

Rubeus Hagrid's Umbrella and Hagrid's Pink Umbrella

Hi, 1337star!
I think we have a problem with these two pages and the talk pages. Which page ist the correct one? MinorStoop has redirected "Rubeus Hagrid's Umbrella" to Hagrid's Pink Umbrella and put the "Delete tag" on Talk:Rubeus Hagrid's Umbrella with the reason "redirect to talk page".

And now I've seen there is a third page Rubeus Hagrid's umbrella, a redirect page to Hagrid's Pink Umbrella. OMG, what a mess. What do you think is here to do?

Thanks for telling me, I will keep this in mind when uploading images.

Bellatrix Lestrange

How is the attack on the Weasley house in the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (film) not canon, especially if it happened in the movie?

Deletion templates???


there must be more to deletion templates than I'm aware of, where can I find help about it? MinorStoop 16:30, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your explanation - you were also right about it being a category and not a page. Cuttlefish's improper use of it made it look like a regular page.

MinorStoop 16:45, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Just saw your change.

This image - - on the HP Lexicon, shows that Cygnus did, indeed, forerly have the 1929 - 1979 dates. HarryPotterRules1 (talk) 12:08, October 31, 2013 (UTC)


Thank you for telling me about my editing mistake on Avery's page. I'm somewhat new to editing and am still learning. Hey could you maybe help me with something? I was the one who created the Gang of Slytherins page somewhat recently and I would like to put an infobox in the page (similar to the one on the page for Tom Riddle's gang) in order to improve the article. I don't know how to do this, could you maybe tell me how? You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off! (talk) 02:34, November 2, 2013 (UTC)

Pottermore families

Do you think we should create articles on the families mentioned on Pottermore only?

  • Quirrrell family
  • Cadogan family
  • Kettleburn family
  • Lockhart family

--Rodolphus (talk) 17:07, November 2, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Strange Muggle artefacts...

I think those are some of the hundreds of items among Mr Weasley's fine selection of junk in his shed, yes (see this image -- on the far right side, there appears to be a shelf full of similar electronics). I am not sure, though, if those items on the picture you found appeared in Half-Blood Prince or were supposed to appear in the deleted scene at the beginning of Deathly Hallows: Part 1, which also features the shed.

Either way, that black object sure looks like a dual cassette deck, although I would disagree that it reads "Toshiba" -- the logo appears to be that of Technics, a brand of Panasonic. I tried to see if I could identify the tape deck model, but I couldn't. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:36, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

Missing signatures...

Hostile, perhaps not, but short tempered certainly. Thanks for reminding me that I also need to put politeness to good use. :) MinorStoop 02:26, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

RE:Confirming reference

Yes check Done. It was indeed the employee at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that said that. I fixed the reference and added a quote. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 18:42, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry I posted my edit on the Lavender Brown talk page and no one responed so I thought i'd ask a more experienced member. I made the changes to Lavender's and Luna's pages, you can see. I would never add something that wasn't true.

Please resond on my talk page, thank you.

I am so sorry about that I will defiently be more careful. I will remember to close my edits next time.

Cite error

You did well, thank you. I should have double checked, but it was late last evening, and I forgot. MinorStoop 08:03, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

A guy called Hallj is making a crazy category called "Category:Ageing Potion users", it's misspelled and doesn't really contrast with the category requirements.

Lee charms O.W.L.

On the Charms (class) page it has Lee listed as having achieved an O.W.L. inthe subject. Since that edit has been there for awhile and I don't see anyone one just making it up, what would be the point.

I just made an edit to the Severus snape page I added vanishment under Transfiguration and sited my source.

Hey, no no, I was just going to edit that, you may know I am new but... just tell me via talk, please don't edit my userpage. Ty,

    OFFICIALHARRY | 17 Edits | Good Day!  


When you undid my change to to put it into the connical form for the site, there was a problem.   The url for the Wayback Machince has two << http:// >> and it was not processed correctly as a link although the source is correct (but not the special markup).

I don't have the foggiest notion of how to fix it.  I suspect that it will take a moderator to fix this unusual link.

YLeeCoyote1938x (talk) 19:50, April 4, 2014 (UTC)

We are had some mimor miscommunication.  But first -- you are correct that the modified link is working correctly.  When I looked at it either I did something wrong or not everything was completely updated. :)

I certainly know about how the Wayback Machine does it links and just thought that might have been the issue.  When I looked at the edit history only the first part of the lik was shown in red.

There are several pages that have similar links and probably need to be updared to JKR new pages if they exist or to the Wayback Machine old copy.  See the Google report for: <<site:  "">>

BTW, I found the site very help for the fanfic I was writing.  Thank you.

YLeeCoyote1938x (talk) 01:23, April 5, 2014 (UTC)

hi in September 2012 you asked for a source from whoever posted the comment about the actress that plays Alys in half-blood prince. I don't know who posted it, but I am that actress.... —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Aurora2013 (talkcontribs).



though I trained on American English (mostly), I'm not mother tongue. The thought that "macaroni cheese" could be British slang did not even pass my mind; I took it as a mistake. My apologies. MinorStoop 07:24, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

Your summary of article Salazar Slytherin

Hi, 1337star! I've read you summary Riddle is a member of the Gaunt family when you deleted his addition. You know that the Gaunts are descendants of Salazar Slytherin? So Riddle really belongs to Salazar Slytherin.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 18:41, September 10, 2014 (UTC)

Oh thank you. Now I understand. I was at first a little bit amused about the summary, but that explains.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 07:09, September 11, 2014 (UTC)


Hi Star I am a new member to the wiki and I intend to go far, thanks for telling him about Hermione's quote.

I see this listed in a number of places, including the Wikipedia article you cited, but we would need a specific source from someone connected to the production of the Harry Potter films in order to verify this information. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:16, April 15, 2015 (UTC)

RE: Game Boy Colo(u)r

Okay thanks! I just happened to notice that there were a lot of incorrect american spellings on this wiki, and I knew that this was a British series so I thought I'd change the spelling to British.

Dragon eggs

Can you point me to where in Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World dragon eggs and nests are discussed? I'm going through and taking screenshots of the game so I might have a pic for the ref. If you have some time and interest, I could also forward along some of these for helping to make character articles and such - let me know. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 20:06, July 13, 2017 (UTC)

Wand wood versus Prop material

Hey - just saw your message about Newt's wand so wanted to provide context for the current reasoning on in-universe wand wood versus prop material issue. The real issue came about from Seraphina Picquery's wand which is Swamp mayhaw in-universe, but was said to be ebony by prop master Pierre Bonaccord in The Case of Beasts: Explore the Film Wizardry of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. This made clear that the information given from the film crew appears to only concern how the prop was made and not be in-universe info.

For Newton Scamander's wand there are also contradictory statements (all in the BTS) about it being lime, ash, shell, belemnite, etc, all at the same level of canon so it seems there is no real way to be sure until JKR steps in and clarifies. Hope that helps! Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:49, December 20, 2017 (UTC)

Re: Images

I apologise. I normally do go back later once the image was uploaded and add the appropriate copyright, but others may beat me to it. I work mainly from my iPad and it can be a bit of a pain when I add images, which I rarely do. I do think credit where credit's due should be very important. - Kates39 (talk) 18:49, February 16, 2018 (UTC)

Discussions Moderator

Hello! We, as in the discussions mod team, have noticed your activity on the, well, discussions, we are lacking a mod, and we think that you would be a great addition to our team, as you are most definitely more mature, than any others, you have greater knowledge of this wiki than anyone else, and you follow and respect rules, so, for those reasons, we'd like to ask you if it would be possible for you to take up this task? Cheers, CosmicChronos | Sweden, the land of Meatballs 14:10, February 22, 2018 (UTC)

Awesome! I've already requested to Seth that he makes you a mod. Cheers, CosmicChronos | Sweden, the land of Meatballs 11:24, February 24, 2018 (UTC)

RE: RE: Dinosaurs

The most reptilian dinosaur I can think of is sauropods, and they are basically crouching birds on the inside, and on the outside, they most resemble scale-covered mammals, with their hoof-shaped feet, erect stance, stiff neck, and other traits.And if we exclude creatures that might not be dinosaurs, the most reptilian would probaby look like birds with a few odd features. And, also, currently, most of the groups in the taxonomy system correspond to a clade or proposed clade, and this would break that for reptiles.
