US League delete?

Hello! Just wondering why you marked US League for deletion and didn't see any info in the edit summary or Category_talk:Candidates_for_deletion. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 18:20, October 3, 2016 (UTC)

Gotcha - I added the reason to the delete tag so it's clear. Just a few talk pages point there so should be easy to remove for an admin. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 21:56, October 3, 2016 (UTC)
Can't find any other mention of the Atlanta Pumpkins, so appears to be made up. --Ironyak1 (talk) 22:49, October 3, 2016 (UTC)

Country or Kind debate

Hey! I added the reference. If you need any help explaining how to add references, let me know! I will be glad to help. If you look at how I added the references on the Country and Kind debate and follow that next time you want to add one to an article, hopefully that should help! I also wanted to give you the heads up that when we add information from Pottermore, we reword it for copyright reasons so it's not written exactly the same. Thank you :) --Kates39 (talk) 09:46, October 8, 2016 (UTC)


Hi! I removed that category because the articles in question were already in the Daily Prophet and The New York Ghost categories. Those categories, in turn, are already part of the periodicals category. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:15, October 14, 2016 (UTC)

RE American magic

While there may be some magical practices unique to America (like the mention of Voodoo) there is plenty of overlap with magic known elsewhere like obliviate, love potions, etc. We'll just have to keep our eyes open for completely new magic on Nov 18th! --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:19, October 15, 2016 (UTC)


It is generally agreed on this wiki that spoilers are allowed on this wiki as long as the spoiler warning is added. --Rodolphus (talk) 18:11, November 17, 2016 (UTC)


Hey - I noticed that you undid the removal of the gallery on Queenie Golstein. The Layout guide policy states that images should be integrated with the text, not separate like in a gallery. Now that the movie is out the article text should be expanded and the cooresponding images selected to support that text. All the images hopefully have the correct category tags so you should be able to find them via Category:Images of Queenie Goldstein which should be linked in thd article via a {{Imagecat}} template. Hope that helps explains what's going on as these updates take place. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:38, November 19, 2016 (UTC)

I see your reasoning. I rememner that cow and bull have once been merged into a single article. And other creatures do not have seperate articles for genders and hair colours either. I have started a community discussion on the candidates for delrzion to find out what the others think. Hope that's okay for you.--Rodolphus (talk) 10:41, February 7, 2017 (UTC)


The decade categories (1990's births etc) are sub-categories of the century ones... individual articles don't go in both cats, only the most relevant one. If we know which century a character was born in but not which decade then it's fine, but if we know the decade we don't also need to put them in the century cat. Sorry, but can you go back and fix this please? You're making a complete mess of the category system. - Xanderen signature 08:08, February 8, 2017 (UTC)

Date Categories

Hi - just wanted to let you know that dates with a "c." means circa, or around this date (often plus or minus a few years). As such, they shouldn't be used for Categories like Births and Deaths by Year as we don't know the actual date (like Rionach Sayre and Gormlaith Gaunt). Hope that helps before you get too far into these changes. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:50, February 9, 2017 (UTC)

MACUSA departments

I´d say yes. I don't know of any rule that goes against it.--Rodolphus (talk) 10:23, February 25, 2017 (UTC)

Image notice

Hello Andrew, I can't help but notice, you failed to give a license, description, source or any categories for the image you uploaded from Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup. I will do this, but I would highly recommend doing this yourself in the future, as it is formal policy. Kind regards. RedWizard98 (talk) 17:38, July 12, 2019 (UTC)

You need to upload your images properly. The image file you recently contained from Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery contains no information and to upload images without adequately licensing, describing, sourcing and categorising them does violate existing image policy. Images that are not uploaded in accordance with image policy do face the threat of deletion from admins, regardless of their quality. - User:RedWizard98

Hello, in response, I just like to help others with their edits, as sometimes people can struggle with certain things, which is what I did with your image uploads. The reason I decided to message you about them was because I myself uploaded a few images when I first started editing without providing all information for them, so some admin threatened to remove them, so I don't want to see others you upload high quality images like yourself have them deleted. Kind regards. - User:RedWizard98

RE Hogwarts Mystery

Hey - I think it makes perfect sense to expanding on Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery by adding Events and Outfits (if enough screenshots/video can be found for all them). As for the Rakepick question, I have not kept up with this game so I don't have any related insights. Probably best to pose the issue on the talk page(s) for the related articles so others who are better informed can weigh in. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 05:03, July 18, 2019 (UTC)

Order of Merlin

Merlin Silver Order of Merlin (Second Class)
The Order of Merlin is awarded to you by {{{1}}} for having over two-thousand edits on the Harry Potter Wiki.
- Over two thousand edits warrants this reward, so well done. RedWizard98 (talk) 00:10, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

Tense issues

With your edits on character articles, you are writing them in the present tense, whereas all character articles should be written in the past participle, according to policy. This to give write these pages in the style of historical biographies, so please write in the past tense. Thank you. RedWizard98 (talk) 03:26, August 12, 2019 (UTC)

Image quality

The image was taken directly from the source, and as such, it is the maximum possible quality. It is literally impossible for the quality to go any higher. Furthermore, many images exist on the wiki with poorer quality, because they are the best possible quality of an image to show, and a low quality image is always better than no image at all, which, in this case is moot anyway.

RE new parent category.

Hi Andrew, If you really want to, you could create a new category for all individuals who are parents, as it is a defining character feature, the only issue I think you would have is finding all of them, as there are so many characters in this series who have had at least one child, so I could not estimate the actual figure. In short, it would be a pretty large category, but this wiki always needs fresh ideas. Maybe a good idea to message Ironyak1 to see what they think about it, as I am not an admin myself. Kind regards. RedWizard98 (talk) 16:13, August 26, 2019 (UTC)

RE Triwizard Tournament

Hi - yes, there could be separate pages for the Triwizard Tournaments of differing years (which might help when linking to events from a particular Tournament), but there is also no requirement for such pages as they would just be extracted the text from each of the subsections on the Triwizard Tournament page. Either way works really. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 00:18, August 28, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:13, September 12, 2019 (UTC)


Hello Andrew7, great work with ordering categories, but when redundant categories are applied to such articles like Argus Filch and Draco Malfoy lately, just delete them, as other categories already apply to the article. Happy editing and keep up the good work. RedWizard98 (talk) 22:23, November 3, 2019 (UTC)
