Apologies... or not
- So, I'll just ask: Did you make up "Nicholas Hawthorne" this character? If yes, that's why the pages are merged. You can look through the page's edit history to see your edits of "Andrew Ravenwood" is not lost. You can bring it back yourself or I can; whichever you prefer. A user is only allowed one Fanon page, I believe the edit summary stated that clear enough.
- However, if you didn't make up "Nicholas Hawthorne".... that's a different story, so I need to know the answer to proceed. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:40, December 3, 2019 (UTC)
- Upon inspection, pretty sure they are in fact fanon so yeah, that's why they are merged. You can rename the subpage to let it show it's not just a character or how ever you please. I suggest thoroughly reading HPW:USER#Rules for user page use. I suggest you also actually read what I wrote; nothing you worked on is deleted; you can check the page's editing history and your edit is still there. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:50, December 3, 2019 (UTC)
- Andrew, I'm just going to try to settle the matter with one go if possible; upon a simple search, I found User:Andrewh7/Barnaby Lee, User:Andrewh7/Talbott Winger, and User:Andrewh7/Jacob Ravenwood in addition. Users are allowed test pages, so if the former 2 are yours for this use, as in, you are playing around but will eventually contribute to their respective articles (Barnaby Lee & Talbott Winger,) then they are absolutely fine to be kept. If not, and you are just adding your own twists, then they need to go. This wiki isn't for Fanon, if the purpose of those pages is just for you to switch out "Jacob's sibling" and replace it with your own character, then there really isn't a justifiable reason for them to be here, even on user subpages.

- It's generally not safe to assume what is obvious to any given reader and as various characters may have differing depictions in various sources, clarity is always better. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 02:00, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
- The point is that having a reference for the text makes clear how the information was obtained. The most clear example of this is Harry's green eyes which directly contrast with the image above it in the infobox. Although Astor's case is more simple, as a general principle, more clarity on sources is better than less so having references is always preferred.
- Adding "Unknown" to the infobox does not add any new info and should be avoided unless the Unknown wand info is linking to another article which has more details (other than wood, core, & length or course) e.g. Scorpius Malfoy. If you want to point out other articles with an unlinked "Unknown" as the wand info field that would help make sure they get corrected. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 04:11, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
I'm not sure why this needs repeating again, but there is no reason to remove refs from information. Clarity is always preferred to implied or inferred information. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 01:32, December 18, 2019 (UTC)
- Just chipping in; Andrew, if you want to present your case with "you can tell [...] by their images used," okay, so where do those images come from? THAT's the source! For people who has never watched the film adaptations or played certain games, how would they know where the image come from, short of trying to figure it out after seeing it? Just don't. It's not even a passible reason, especially when there's several known cases that the images don't match canon facts, as pointed out. It has nothing to do with whether people can or can not tell the skin color etc. by image, nothing above as suggested it's agreeable to remove sources because "it's obvious." --Sammm✦✧(talk) 02:12, December 18, 2019 (UTC)
RE Statute of Secrecy Task Force members
In general, articles that are just lists should be avoided; however it would make sense to possibly add a "Statute of Secrecy Task Force members" category to known members and/or add known members to the Statute of Secrecy Task Force article. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 18:09, December 12, 2019 (UTC)
Where's your proof Karkaroff's Aide is Bulgarian?
RE Cases from the Wizarding World unmade pages
Hey - I actually played Fantastic Beasts: Cases from the Wizarding World , but only up to about the 10th case. I have some screenshots for new characters and such up to that part of the game, but haven't had the time to make articles for them. If you want to start stubbing in new pages, I will try and add details and images as times allows. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:27, January 12, 2020 (UTC)
RE Magic Awakened template
Ivy Warrington's grandmother
I wondered the same thing. Mrs. Mr. etc should not be used in article titles. Such character articles are usually named after their most prominent relation, which would make Ivy Warrington's grandmother the preferred title, though she should still be referred to as Mrs Warrington in the infobox and the article itself.--Rodolphus (talk) 20:57, January 16, 2020 (UTC)
- Sorry for jumping in here, but the father of the Delacour sisters is called Delacour sisters' father. So why not call the grandmother "Warrington sisters' grandmother"? 21:25, January 16, 2020 (UTC)
