Snape was on the good side: When Snape revealed the prophecy made by Sybill Trelawney (not knowing, at first, that it was referring to Lily and her family) to Voldemort, Voldemort decided to attack the Potters in an attempt to prevent its fulfilment. Though he asked Voldemort to spare Lily (whom he loved), Snape, still fearing for her safety, went to Dumbledore and begged him to protect the Potters. Dumbledore agreed and ensured that they were placed under the Fidelius Charm. In return, Snape became a triple agent for the Order of the Phoenix against Voldemort, using his powers of Occlumency to hide his betrayal from Voldemort. Even with his efforts to protect her, Snape felt responsible for Lily's death when the Fidelius charm was broken. Despite Harry's strong resemblance to James Potter, the fact that he was Lily's son made Snape protect him throughout the series. Snape demanded of Dumbledore, however, that his love for Lily, his reason for switching sides, be kept a secret. Dumbledore agreed and kept the secret.

In the summer between Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince, Dumbledore is afflicted by a powerful curse cast on the Gaunt ring, one of Voldemort's Horcruxes. Although Snape's knowledge of the Dark Arts enabled him to slow the spread of the curse, the curse would have ultimately killed Dumbledore within a year. Dumbledore, aware that Voldemort had ordered Draco to kill him, asked Snape to kill him instead as a way of sparing the boy's soul and of preventing his otherwise slow, painful death. Although Snape was reluctant, even asking about the impact of such an action on his own soul, Dumbledore implied that this kind of mercy-killing or killing "by request" would not damage a human's soul in the same way murder would. Snape simply agreed to do as the Headmaster requested. -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 21:04, 15 July 2009 (UTC)


The information you are adding to Runcorn actually refers to Albert Runcorn, which is a different person.--Matoro183 Ravenclawcrest (Talk) 16:10, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

You can place links to different pages on the Wikia by putting brackets around the word that you want example Ginny Weasly after brackets Ginny Weasly you must use [[]]. also for out of the wiki the editing tips at the top when you open the page to edit will show different ways. example [ link title . Hope that helps. --Profiteor Ravenclawcrest(Owl Me) 17:55, 17 July 2009 (UTC)


To add internal links, place where you want it to link to between two sets of brackets. E.g. to produce Harry Potter, do [[Harry Potter]]

If you want the link to say something add a pipe between the link and what you want to appear on the page. E.g. to produce a link to this simply do [[Harry Potter|this]] --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:02, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:Info Tables

Those "info tables" are actually called infoboxes. This is the blank template:

{{Wizard individual infobox

To fill it in simply add the information in front of the equal signs, like this: |blood=Half-blood.
Hope I have helped you. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:47, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
Here's the page with the various infobox templates. Just choose which color you want (there are examples on each page), copy the text from there and paste it on your user page. Any sections you don't want to show up, just leave them blank (with the 'equal' sign on the right).
Nick O'Demus 14:55, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
To add an image, simply put the link to the image, and next to it a pipe, followed by the number of pixels.

E.g.: [[File:Honeywater.jpg|250px]] --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:08, 18 July 2009 (UTC)


That had nothing to do with Prefects. That was about an event that occurred in the Prefects' bathroom, but it wasn't about Prefects, so it doesn't belong in that article.--Matoro183 Ravenclawcrest (Talk) 20:17, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:Prefect badge

Just check the Award Policy. It's all explained there. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:45, 18 July 2009 (UTC)


Because that quote had nothing to do with merpeople. It could describe the nature of the 2nd task, it could show Harry Potter's loyalty to his friends, but says nothing of merpeople. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:37, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Re: points

That's the number of characters added (+) or removed (-) to the article in question. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:58, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

RE: Advanced Signature

I'm probably not the best one making a signature I'll show you mine but I'm not very great at explaining on how to make it. I'd suggest talking to Seth Cooper or Matoro183. They have always done a brilliant job with there signatures. --Profiteor Gryffindorcrest(Owl Me) 18:44, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

thanks i will ask Seth now --Bongo2009 18:46, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:Last question

  1. Create a template page in your userspace. The title of this page should be based on your username, so your template page would be User:Bongo2009/sig.
  2. Add HMTL or wiki markup to your template page to create the look you want.
  3. Go to your preferences page (Special:Preferences/Bongo2009)
  4. Enter the code "{{SUBST:User:Bongo2009/sig}}" in the signature field.
  5. Check the "custom signature" box directly below the signature field.
  6. Click the "save" button.

Let me know if you need help with the HMTL/wiki markup. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:52, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Ok, I'll help you. What are you planning to do? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:43, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
How to you want the text Bongo2009 to be written (lettertype)? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:33, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
And the font? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:44, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
How about this? -> Bongo2009 Gryffindor --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:00, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
So go to yopur preferences page and paste the following codes into the signature field: [[User:Bongo2009|<font face="Verdana" color="FireBrick">'''Bongo2009'''</font>]] [[Image:Gryffindor.jpg|25px]] --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:12, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Vostok.--Matoro183 (Talk) 12:58, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


It was already mentioned on the "Portrayal in the Films" section. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:02, 20 July 2009 (UTC)


That wasn't the correct format for a quote. You're supposed to use a Quote template.--Matoro183 (Talk) 18:35, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

What I write on the wiki.

Yes, I almost allways try to corecct people as nice as possible if they suggest something wrong. The source for Snape not being in Gryffindor is JKR´s homepage. There, she states thar Heads of Houses were Sorted in these houses.--Rodolphus 14:34, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

You can see what edits people can make by looking on the left side of the page where it says "Community" and when people make edits it shows it on the box. --Profiteor Gryffindorcrest(Owl Me) 15:42, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Room of Requirement

In the book, Dobby tells Harry about the Room after Harry asks him if there's a place their group can practice DADA spells in secret. To sum up the canon policy:

  • Books & JKR's comments > Movies > Games & Merchandise

"Lower tier" canon is only considered accurate when it does not conflict with a "higher tier". In this case, the official version in the article is that Dobby finds the Room, while the part about Neville in the movie is mentioned in the "Behind the Scenes" section.

Hope this helps. - Nick O'Demus 16:39, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Re:Quidditch Practice

Since it covered exactly the same thing as Flying (class) I redirect the article there. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:28, 21 July 2009 (UTC)


I haven´t deleted any did you knows., or at least didn´t notice. If I did, sorry. --Rodolphus 18:34, 21 July 2009 (UTC)


I only deleted the one about rumours.--Matoro183 (Talk) 18:57, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

It doesn't matter if you think they are good. They don't even make any sense.--Matoro183 (Talk) 20:34, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Please do not add 'this page is property of Bongo2009' to pages you edit.--Matoro183 (Talk) 20:49, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Please use the same formatting as the other DYKs use. By the way, you still have to vote for them.--Matoro183 Ravenclawcrest (Talk) 16:37, 22 July 2009 (UTC)



Copy the above coding to the end of your sig.--Matoro183 Ravenclawcrest (Talk) 16:44, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

To produce the above, use the following codes: [[User_talk:Bongo2009|<sup><font face="verdana" color="FireBrick">'''Talk'''</font></sup>]]


If you want the Prefect badge, you need to start making more substantial edits than fixing links that work anyway.--Matoro183 Ravenclawcrest (Talk) 22:24, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Mr Payne

Yes, I saw it had some red links and wrong format so I fixed it up --Profiteor Gryffindorcrest(Owl Me) 19:16, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes because it already exists. Jayden Matthews 19:24, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

I believe "Mr. Payne" is already under "Payne" and Mr. Payne has been redirected to Payne. --Profiteor Gryffindorcrest(Owl Me) 19:26, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Please don't add fanon to this site. If you continue to do so you will be banned from editing. Jayden Matthews 19:36, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

beat me to it. --Profiteor Gryffindorcrest(Owl Me) 19:37, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Fanon is when you deliberately add false information to articles, as you did with Charity Burbage. It is considered vandalism, and doing it again will result in you being banned from the site. Jayden Matthews 19:42, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

That person was asking where it was said that Burbage was in Ravenclaw, because someone else had added it. What House she was in is never discussed in the books. Jayden Matthews 19:48, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

The Seventh Year for Lily Evans

Yep, I wrote that. I hope you enjoyed it and hang around for when I post a second chapter. ShirleyALuna Lovegood with Spectrespecs(The Quibbler) 04:18, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I'll put Chapter 3 up the moment it's finished. (which is not yet) ShirleyALuna Lovegood with Spectrespecs(The Quibbler) 00:12, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

RE: Chapter articles

The wiki is in-universe, so no, no articles on chapters. Jayden Matthews 13:48, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Prefect badge

There is no set edit limit for prefect badges. If someone believes that you've earned it, then they will award it to you. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 15:06, 10 August 2009 (UTC)


Would you like me to make it for you? It would probably be easier than explaining it. Jayden Matthews 14:52, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Here you are! To add more images to it you just copy the file name into the gallery. Just let me know if you need anything else :) Jayden Matthews 15:07, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm not quite sure I understand. Can you be more specific? Jayden Matthews 17:41, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

I'm really sorry, but I don't know. You'd be better off asking an Administrator. Sorry :( Jayden Matthews 18:02, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
