New Images

Hi! I noticed that the new images you've been adding may be fan props, but also have watermarks and website links. As these images are not from a canon source (like Pottermore or one of the many film related books), it is hard to verify they are correct, and cannot be displayed with the Out of Universe watermarks. It would help to hunt down clean versions of these images from a canon or an authentic source that can be confirmed. For example, here is a clean image from Harry Potter: The Exhibition for the cover of Travels with Trolls. Hope this makes sense. Cheers! --Ironyak1 (talk) 03:56, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

Yeah in looking at them the Polyjuice Potion is listed as a replica prop, and the books are claimed to be authentic film props, but the watermarking and website info on them make them out-of-universe and can't be used on the related articles. Most of this info is already represented on the articles except maybe the back cover of Gilderoy Lockhart's Guide to Household Pests - hopefully someone has a clean verifiable version of that one. Also, you should make sure to provide source and licencing info for all uploaded images (see Harry_Potter_Wiki:Image policy) and make sure to sign posts on Talk pages with four tildes (~~~~). Sorry for the policies overload, just letting you know. Feel free to send an owl if there are any questions. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 04:34, September 28, 2016 (UTC)

HM Images

Hi there, thank you for your numerous high quality HM image uploads, although there are a few small issues with them. For example, normal categories should never apply to image files, for examle "Maps and Charts" should not have been used on the Hogwarts floor layout images. There are also excessive subheadings used on image files and the information boxes themselves could have had better hyperlinking to the pages that are relevant to them. That is all really, so happy editing. RedWizard98 (talk) 00:26, November 8, 2019 (UTC)
