Thanks Cav! We're having a great response so far. Christina l 16:18, August 8, 2011 (UTC)


Whenever I edit a character infobox it replaces the character name with {{{Name}}}, which is really annoying. Can you help? 11:14, August 9, 2011 (UTC)


Excuse me, why do you keep deleting Discovering the Real World of Harry Potter?

Nonsense Page

Hi Cavalier One,

This user has created a page that is basically an exact copy of Priori Incantatem. He just named the page Another Priori Incantatem. I catagorized it as a canidate for deletion but I figured you would want to take a look. This has been reverted on the main Priori Incantatem page previously so he just made a new page.

Locked articles

Part-troll and Burning of the Burrow have been fully-protected since July 13 and May 23, respectively. Do you think that's long enough to remove the protection, or at least bump them down to semi-protected? I ask since you were the one who set the protection in place. - Nick O'Demus 13:20, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Point taken on Part-troll. I'll leave it locked for now. - Nick O'Demus 05:29, August 13, 2011 (UTC)
Might want to check if User:Cascade11 is a sock-puppet of User:Shadytheif20. Their first edit was the day after the block, and their most recent edit was to blank Shadytheif20's userpage. - Nick O'Demus 08:50, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry ... ?

You left me a message on my talk page that has something to do with images and I'm not quite sure what you mean. I'm sure I've only uploaded one or two? Any chance you could be a bit more specific? Thanks, The One You Fear 07:36, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

What the heck?

Hi, I saw you deleted my blog post. What was that for? You know you can write blog posts about anything!!!!!Loonylovegood13 12:53, August 15, 2011 (UTC)


Can I please ask why you removed my 'controversial comment' on the vampire article? It is not fanon and has been put in right place (behind the scenes) on the article, and it must be stated that little is known about vampires. Please explain.

Why did you remove my 'controversial comment' on the vampire article. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Cascade11‎ (talkcontribs).

early entry

I was accepted for early entry, but like you am still waiting on the last email to come through to gain access to the site, I will let you know as soon as I do.--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 17:33, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Oh was thinking maybe when stuff like this pops up, until it's open to all or an admin can verify, we should maybe stick the fact tag on them?--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 17:34, August 15, 2011 (UTC)


Heya. So, please forgive the intrusion, but I saw you discussing the problem with verifying new Pottermore canon and I had an idea: how about we make it a policy not to accept new pottermore canon unless someone provides a screenshot of said canon appearing on the site? Would that work, do you think? Green Zubat 17:49, August 15, 2011 (UTC).

Whenyou say the uploads would "have to be dealt with", how so? Maybe I could help? And I know what you mean about doubting the user, but I was just thinking "better safe than sorry" Green Zubat 18:10, August 15, 2011 (UTC).

Talk page

Hey, Cav. Just a heads up. Despite several requests to stop, Dannisen continues to delete messages from his talk page. Including administritive warnings. Jayden Matthews 18:04, August 15, 2011 (UTC)


Yea maybe that would be a good idea, it would just be useful to have something, to sort of mark them so that when the site does open and things can be better confirmed we know where the information is within articles.--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 18:30, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

RE:Pottermore information

I am pretty much on the same situation as you: have been accepted, but am still waiting for access (and dying to do it). How about adding a sitewide notice warning that new material from Pottermore should be backed up by appropriate screenshots or else it's going to be reverted? After all, all info in our articles must be verifiable. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 19:24, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Bummer. How about creating a "info from Pottermore beta" template (I was thinking of something like {{fact}}, but perhaps linking to a page saying something like "This piece of information comes from the closed beta version of Pottermore. For the time being, it should be taken with a grain of salt", at least until it can be vouched for by some of our board of admins. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:27, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
Agreed. Other thing that I've been thinking is that one only has access to the backstory of their own House. If, say, a user is Sorted into Hufflepuff and learns more about the Fat Friar's backstory I, who, say, got Sorted into Ravenclaw, will never be able to verify if the Hufflepuff backstory is true (and vice versa). Perhaps it would be useful to have a list of Admins who got into Pottermore and a list of their Houses to know who to go to when one needs to verify a specific detail about the Houses backstory. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:38, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Besides, you, Seth and myself are there any other admins we know of that got into pottermore early?--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 22:45, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Yea, that was like the only thing anyone talked about on the chat for the rpg wiki I help run (not the Hogwarts one anymore, I left there, and now help run the Camp Half Blood rpg wiki), a bunch of users there also got in early to Pottermore, although I don't know anyone there yet who has gotten onto the site. Once I get in I plan on spending more time here helping sort through the info, lately I've been busy over there, and spending less time here, but with the influx of new info I'll switch priorities for awhile.--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 22:59, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

I've gotten early access, too, but I've yet to receive my welcome e-mail. Registered on the first day.

So, since there's four admins known to have early access, perhaps we could all attempt to strategically answer the questions on the Sorting Hat quiz so that we end up with one admin in every house? I could try for Slytherin (my self-identified house), Seth could try for Ravenclaw (his self-identified house), etc.

When the site opens to all in October, I'm going to register multiple accounts, so I can experience it from different houses, and thus confirm all the house-exclusive information. However, you were only allowed to register one account for the beta run (I read the ToS), so I guess I'm stuck wherever I get put until October. Starstuff (Owl me!) 01:41, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

Do we use the Pottermore template on every article that includes new information from Pottermore, even if its subject is previously known from canon (i.e. Minerva McGonagall), or only for articles on subjects introduced for the first time in Pottermore (Isobel McGonagall, Eglantine Puffett, etc.)?
Looking at BachLynn's userpage, I see she also identifies as a Gryffindor, so either you or she would have to try for Hufflepuff if we decided to go ahead with my plan. Maybe we could ask around on forums or something for the "right" answers for each house, seeing as how we each get one shot until October. Starstuff (Owl me!) 08:29, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
Would you by any chance know where I could find a copy of Ollivander's backstory? I've been looking for it and can't seem to find it anywhere.
Setting up a forum thread would be a good idea. Starstuff (Owl me!) 08:57, August 16, 2011 (UTC)

I've noticed that quite a bit of the information released on pottermore contradicts things that JKR has stated in previous interviews, such as the birth dates of both McGonagall and Dumbledore. I think we need to find a way to incorporate this into the canon policy. If there are two conflicting bits of information, one would have to take priority over the other.--Matoro183 (Talk) 02:20, August 18, 2011 (UTC)

The canon policy already covers this: "When J. K. Rowling contradicts herself, the newest source is to be taken as the "most" canon."
Incidentally, I got my Pottermore welcome e-mail, but I don't have much time today to check it out. Starstuff (Owl me!) 15:36, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
I got Ravenclaw. Starstuff (Owl me!) 00:58, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
Yep, I tried for Slytherin, but I received a bunch of rather abstract questions. The only one out of the whole batch that seemed obvious was (I'm paraphrasing here):
Would you rather invent a potion that would give you...
I dutifully answered "power," and "hexes and jinxes" to the question about what I looked forward to learning most at Hogwarts, but I still ended up in Ravenclaw, probably because I couldn't make heads or tails of a question like "Heads or tails?"
I identified as Ravenclaw at one point, though, so it's definitely something I can live with. Starstuff (Owl me!) 07:33, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
It's also worth noting that the current member counts are:
  • Gryffindor: 7,816
  • Ravenclaw: 10,636
  • Hufflepuff: 7,867
  • Slytherin: 7,835
Seems the test somehow favours Ravenclaw. Starstuff (Owl me!) 07:40, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

Re:Crests for a change :P

Ah, I see what you mean. I did preview them in the infobox first, and, to be honest while they are quite small compared to the rest of the banner the crests themselves are not that detailed or interesting. With that in mind, a close up of them may not be that desireable. In my opinion, as long as the animal itself is clear they should be okay. That's just my opinion, of course. Jayden Matthews 20:56, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

RE: RE: I'm sorry ... ?

I meant, what image?

Robert Hilliard

Hi, I've created the talk page for Hilliard, and we discussed the points for merging it with the prefect in the first film, which you reverted. I was wondering if you could discuss it with us in Talk:Robert Hilliard. Thanks, Ravenclawcrest.jpgThe Evening Prophet Ravenclawcrest.jpg (Owl Post) 17:15, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

You deleted my page!

The page was on Annoying Orange Wiki! 20:45, August 19, 2011 (UTC)Adrita

Renaming article of Neville Longbottom

Hi, I saw that this user moved the article of Neville Longbottom to the new name:

MR Neville Longbottom with the justification: (As he is over 17 and male).

I think that isn't a sufficient justification. Besides the students all men are over 17 and male. Should that not be rolled back? Harry granger 15:58, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

Article Harry Potter

Can you have a look on the article: Harry Potter? Some subtitles - from Returning to Hogwarts to Final Duel - are underlined which weren't before. I asked me why? Harry granger 16:09, August 20, 2011 (UTC)

I fixed it.--Matoro183 (Talk) 16:16, August 20, 2011 (UTC)


Hcoknhoj hasn't edited for almost six months now. I plan to move him to "inactive" once he actually reaches that point. I was thinking of nominating Rodolphus and Cubs Fan2007 as replacements, since they're both still reasonably active. - Nick O'Demus 06:15, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

Main image common rooms

Hi, Cav! I have a question. You removed the new common room image as main image from Gryffindor Tower. Another user removed the new common room image as main image from Ravenclaw Tower. Both are pictured in the article, but in the articles Hufflepuff Basement and Slytherin Dungeon the new images of the common rooms are used as main image. What is the reason for this difference? Harry granger 18:59, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

Template talk:DYK‎

Hi, can you have a look on this Template talk? There was the comment of a user deleted from another user.

When I understand you right, you have no problem when the images of new common rooms are used? Harry granger 19:15, August 22, 2011 (UTC)

My Blog

Hi. I was just wondering why you deleted my blog. It was a dedication to my Harry Potter story. When I read the rules it mention Fanfiction in them so I do not see why my dedication was deleted. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Muggleborn-Phoenix (talkcontribs).

According to Special:Log/delete he deleted your blog per HPW:BLOG. Policy 2 on that page says "No fan fiction". I saw your blog before Cavalier One deleted it and it was fan fiction so it was removed. I'm no admin or anything so the preceding is just my take on what happened based on what I saw. Also, please always sign talk page entries using 4 tildes (~). -Shorty1982 00:08, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
Okay I get that. But it did say before I posted the blog about Fanfictions. So what is that about?Muggleborn-Phoenix 00:19, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
Did say what? I don't understand what you're saying. -Shorty1982 00:27, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
Blogs are used by wiki communities for fan fiction or original work, news and announcements, questions or recommendations to the community, or reviews or op-eds. << That is what it says before you post a blog. Fanfiction is a story. So I don't see why my blog was deleted.Muggleborn-Phoenix 00:34, August 25, 2011 (UTC)
I'm not sure but that sounds to me to be a default message from the Wikia software that is always said before posting a blog, no matter what wiki it is. The rules of this particular wiki regarding blogs (which may be different from other wikis) explicitly states that fan fiction is not allowed, therefore it was deleted. -Shorty1982 00:49, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

My Page Deletion

Hi, I see you deleted my page, marking it as 'nonsense', when these crests do in fact appear in the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Movie. Why did you delete it, I've seen this clip countless times and know this to be true, as well as knowing that some of the prop shields contained House and Hogwarts crests. Please reply! Also, from what other people say, it seems this is happening alot. Maybe instead of shining your Prefect Badge around like Percy (no offence!) you could stop doing this and allow other people to have a chance. ~Padfoot.

Conjuring / Manipulating Fire Spell

I believe McGonagall conjured the fire from the torches in the Great Hall,to duel Snape.With that she attacked him and when they ended their duel, she moved her wand and the flames returned to the torches.If you look closely the duel scene you will notice that by the time Snape leaves Hogwarts the flames of the torches have deminished. 09:33, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you for the kind message. I look forward to helping out this wiki as much as I can. Thanks again and I hope I can be of any assisstance.

Hello. I'm with the wiki entertainment team and I have been asigned to ad videos to the wiki. The video rules state that videos of scenes or pieces of the movie are to not to be posted- but we have legally licensed videos of just that. Is it ok to post them now that they are legally obtained or should I steer clear?

I sent this message to another admin but I thought I would try and cover more ground by asking you too. :)
I just wanted to be sure I wasn't doing anything wrong but I also want to make sure I'm allowed because these videos are great!


Hiya Cavalier One,

I know you're an admin and all but I was wondering why you deleted some of the photos I've put up? well, one but i was just curious. Thanks, (Ron Ron12 09:05, September 26, 2011 (UTC))

By the way, if you are "early-greying", then you share that with one of my favorite personalities - Steve Martin, a local boy who started about 30 miles from here in SoCal

Hi, I have a question. Perhaps you can help me. Why does this wiki set my changed articles at once on the top of the recent changes? Have I set something in my preferences that says "do that" or what other mistake have I done? I tried to solve it, but I don't know what to do next. I hope you can help.

Hi Cavalier One, I reccomend this page for deletion although I'm not sure how you do it. Could you perhaps delete the page and maybe tell me how you do it so I may do it next time unassisted? Thanks, Padfoot. 06:31, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Candidate for Deletion

I'm not quite sure how you categorize cantidates for deletion, perhaps one of the Admins could tell me? Nonetheless, I found a replica page that needs deleting as it has no content and I'm not quite sure how to do it. Please get back to me, Padfoot. 06:35, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

You've deleted almost everything i've edited

Can i please ask why you're deleteing almost everything i have posted? The site is to change and make things better, i'm merely adding photos about the section so people can understand it more, why are they being removed?

2011 Highlights?

Hi Cavalier One -

I’m a member of Wikia’s Content Team and I’m working on a project I’d love your help with. This year we’re gathering stories and highlights of 2011 from various communities on Wikia. This is something we’re going to start doing annually and we’re really excited to share it with not only the entire Wikia community but the rest of the world. This will serve as a sort of time capsule that captures the big moments in 2011 as seen through Wikians eyes. As one of our most active and creative communities on Wikia we’d love for the Harry Potter Wiki to submit their 5 biggest moments of the year for possible inclusion in this year end round-up.

What were the highlights that happened on your wiki this year? This can be more specific -- did you take any polls or create any top ten lists that showed collectively what you as a wiki thought? What were the most hotly debated scenes or the most loved performances. Was there a topic that received more attention than any other? Did your community do anything unique that you want the world to know about?

I’m writing to you since you’re an admin but if you'd like to open this to the entire community please feel free to post a blog or poll, the more suggestions the better. When you have your top 5 moments or you can post them on my talk page or email them to me here: Thanks so much and let me know if you have any questions at all.

best, Christina 23:45, October 27, 2011 (UTC)

Harry Potter Videos

Hey CavalierOne,

I just wanted to let you know that Wikia has made these movie clips available for download for the Harry Potter Wiki!

Feel free to discuss with the other admins and pick and choose which Harry Potter clips you want. Let me know if you have any questions.

Once you choose them, let me know and I'd be happy to write a blog post and alert the HP community at large via Twitter/FB.

Have fun! :)

I don't know if you're the right person to ask, but I'm from, a Harry Potter fan site, and I was hoping we could be added to the affiliates of the Harry Potter Wiki. Our 88x31 button can be found here: and we will link back to the wiki in the sidebar of our site with our other affiliates.

Hello, I am new to the wiki, but I was wondering, have you ever considered using badges? I have been on some wikis that use them, and they really boost how much people edit. Not that people don't edit here, but most consider it as an acheivement to strive for so they edit more and with higher quality. There is also the fact that some spam to get them, but with 17 admins you should be able to attend to that.

It is just an idea, and I leave it up to you to decide.

2012 Oscars Pool Contest

Oscars12 300x150

Greetings! My name is Scott, and I work for Wikia on their Community Development Team. With the 2012 Academy Awards rapidly approaching, we'd like to involve your wiki in our 2012 Oscars Pool contest by temporarily adding the above banner to your main page. We're just looking to give your users a chance to join in on the Oscars excitement and have a chance to win one of the DVD box sets that will be up for grabs. :) Please hit me up on my talk page as soon as you can and let me know if you're willing to join us in this event, so I can (hopefully) add the contest banner and we can get your users informed on how to enter.

Thank you for your time! (profile)•(talk)•(email) 02:06, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
Also, with the close of the Grammys contest, we'd really like to replace that slider image with one for this new Oscars contest - if it's alright... (profile)•(talk)•(email) 03:14, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hmmm... Yeah, doing a small one as well would be a little bit of an overkill. Let's just replace the slider image or it will start looking spammy on your main page. :) Still waiting to receive the 660x360 version, I'll toss it up as soon as I get it. I'm going to go ahead and take the Grammy one down for now - since the Grammys and the contest are both over, and it's no good having old news up there.

I been wondering if we can add some new looks and things on the wikia. Like has some pages of characters have comments boxs or a link on theirs page to a page. A page where we can ramdomly chat about the characters we like to talk about. But it has to be the character that the link and the comment box belong to. Let me know what you think.

Thought you ought to know

Voting on the Notability Policy proposal is moving forward. - Nick O'Demus 11:45, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

on a unidentified page it said that a student was i Ravanclaw when really she is in Slytherin if you click on the picture you can tell just wanted to let you know


He / she is right. I enlarged the image and the crest shows the Slytherin serpent, not the Ravenclaw eagle / raven.

Question about my talk

Is it okay to remove both the messages from my talk page here? Or the most recent one at least? — AnselaJonla (talk) 14:59, July 1, 2012 (UTC)


Greetings! You may already know, but Harry Potter will be involved with Comic-Con this year. Wikia will have a physical presence at the 'Con once again, and we've created this badge:

Comiccon participantbadge

to remind users of this, and provide them with a link to Comic-Con Wiki. There, we will be updating live for the duration of the event with images, info, and exclusives for those users who are unable to be there in person. Would you be willing to allow this badge on the main page here (hopefully at the top of the right column) until the conclusion of the event? Please hit me up on my TALK PAGE and let me know either way so I can add it, or make a note that you've declined affiliation. You're welcome to add it yourself using the code above, but please drop me a note as well so I can track which wikis are participating. Thank you for your time! :) (profile)•(talk)•(email) 01:07, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Inquiring about a Nifty feature on your wiki

Hi!, I am an admin on another wiki and I am interested to find out how you got the number of pages from the top to the sidebar...

May I ask how this was done?

I wanted to have a change made to Lucius Malfoy's page and saw that it was locked. In the Behind the Scenes section, it talks about the Elder Futhark runes on his Azkaban card. It lists Fehu as being one, when actually the rune is Ansuz.

Wikia's Fantasy Fellowship

Hey Cavalier One!

Wikia is hosting a "Fantasy Fellowship" to commemorate The Hobbit and Hobbit Day! We were wondering if you were interested in signing Harry Potter Wiki up for the fellowship and potentially see if the community was interested in forming their own "Adventure Dream Team" with Harry Potter characters as part of a fellowship?

The details can be found on this blog and you can sign up for the fellowship here! We're hoping that a lot of wikis participate and come up with their own fellowships to compete against other wiki teams to see who can complete the quest.

Let me know if you (and Harry Potter Wiki) would be interested!

Undo my edits of page Albus_Dumbledore#1996-1997

Please, I'd like that you undo all my edits of day 26 March 2014 in the page Albus_Dumbledore#1996-1997!!! Thank you and I am so sorry for that! Andre G. Dias (talk) 20:28, March 26, 2014 (UTC)


I hoped it could be resolved through discussion but now that seems not likely. I feel that User:MinorStoop is giving me a hard time about editing without fully explaining what it is that is upsetting him.

Could I have assistance in resolving this matter?

Just want to reach out from Wikia

Hi Mike! My name is Therese. I work with Lesley in SF and want to introduce myself. I'm going to add a few blog posts over the next few days to get folks excited about the release of Cursed Child. Pottermore sent us some images and an exclusive gifset/video that showcases quotes from all the novels. Was wondering if you wanted to feature the video on the main page? I can show you what it looks like on my sandbox wiki, if that's the case. Let me know!

Wikia Polls

Hi there! I wanted to let you know that currently the wikia polls aren't working on mobile. We know that voting is a great way to survey the community so we recommend replacing them with another mainpage unit. Pollsnacks is super easy to incorporate and I can change it for you if you like. Sorry for the inconvenience! Let me know if there is anyway I can help you with this transition. Witnessme (talk) 18:43, August 16, 2016 (UTC)

Hi Mike,

My name is Erik Nilsson, an avid HP fan since many years back.

I noticed that there was an old post about becoming an affiliate of the HarryPotterWikia ( and would like to ask how I proceed to become one? :) I am more than happy to link to this amazing resource for a link back to my blog.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Duplicate Posters

I believe you have uploaded posters of Fantastic Beasts that i already uploaded yesterday. There are no strings on me (talk) 17:44, September 25, 2018 (UTC)

I believe you are right. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest.jpg(Wizarding Wireless Network) 18:03, September 25, 2018 (UTC)
Will you rectify what you uploaded? There are no strings on me (talk) 18:25, September 25, 2018 (UTC)
Given the amount of duplicate images on this wiki, is it really an issue? - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest.jpg(Wizarding Wireless Network) 18:32, September 25, 2018 (UTC)
Well i guess when i find textless variants that would be alright. There are no strings on me (talk) 18:38, September 25, 2018 (UTC)
YES IT IS. That reply is extremely inappropriate, as an Admin, you really are going to sit there and use that as a defense? Duplicate images makes finding images harder and in this case, it's already been pointed out to you and not asking you to actively seek out the duplicate, it's not a hard task, just delete those duplicate you've uploaded. FYI, yours (uploads by Cavalier One) also have the EW watermarks and are of lower quality, please set a good example and remove those duplicate images, thanks!
I'm saying this because the action is violating policies, "Duplicate images should not be uploaded unless intended to replace a lower quality version of the same image. Obvious duplicate images will be speedy deleted." Your uploads is both duplicate and lower quality, there's no justification of leaving them here when they even chronologically came to this wiki after the other uploads. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 18:44, September 25, 2018 (UTC)

RE: Apology

Thanks for the message, but no worries - it's just a difference in opinion, nothing to stress over. You do have several more years experience at this so I would be interested in your perspective how this image's benefits outweigh its spoilery drawbacks. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 18:47, September 25, 2018 (UTC)

When you have time, and to whatever extent you are able and willing, I for one would be interested in hearing more about the Fandom view of the wiki's popularity and performance . Having been a proprietor of several ad-supported web ventures, I understand the CPM struggle and wasn't trying to be dismissive of the vested interest in views, just that it should not be the only factor to consider. As editors or even admins, we neither have to worry about this issue nor do we have any incentive to even consider it. Just thought it would be interesting to understand some of the other perspectives involved. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 03:04, September 26, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the insight. I would question slightly the notion that "positioning the "current" image front and center can only be a boon to us." How is it a boon? Or who is the "us" in that sentence? To me, there appears to be a large potential for a disconnect between an editor's concerns (completeness, accuracy, fan community experience) and Fandom's competition for traffic. Not that they have to be at odds, but clearly can be. Catering to a large segment of fans who are trying to preserve the reveals and detective-story surprises of Rowling's work isn't the best business decision when the bills are paid by views and clicks, but it is a worthwhile service for those fellow fans.
The balancing of these concerns is why the tabber approach on Nagini works better for most of us. The image is still there as is all the related text in the article, but a viewer has to choose to reveal that info. Maybe not as clickworthy as the dozens of other articles with Claudia Kim's picture front and center, but again, why would editors here consider such an issue? The wiki's content creators are not motivated by views, nor have any incentive to factor that into their decisions. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:56, September 26, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Duplicate images

Hi there, Mike! First of all, thank you so, so much for replying to me! I actually didn't think you were specifically ignoring me, I was more concerned over the initial response to User:Valyrian Wildfire, it really sounded to me that "having duplicates isn't a big deal" and doesn't look like anything needed to be done about them.

Now knowing you only mean the necessity of handling them immediately, that honestly makes me feel a whole lot better because it's a completely different issue. I'm also sorry that I interpreted it in the way you did not mean; I have to admit it made me think of a response I saw at Category talk:Candidates for deletion#File:4991.jpgssdff.png, the comment about "it's not like we have a storage-space limit", I mistook it to be the same attitude, leading me to run to another admin on the matter.

I'm sorry about the misunderstanding, and I really want you to know I super appreciate you for making the effort on clarifying the situation! --Sammm✦✧(talk) 20:39, September 25, 2018 (UTC)

Wanting a Staff's opinion

Hi there, Mike! Hope all is well! I know as a Fandom Staff you have responsibilities outside HPW, but if you have time, I'm curious to know the thoughts from a Staff's point of view.

The first question already feels kind of silly, but I am vaguely curious if there's a way for Fandom to keep track of scripts from w:c:dev; like, is there a way to determine that implementing certain scripts is indeed enhancing users' overall experiences on the wikis that use said scripts? (I feel it's silly because I think there could be too many factors, and hard to pin down, say more traffic, is due to being the result of using certain scripts.) I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask, after all, I really don't know anything about statistics lol, it'd be cool if there was in fact a way to tell what scripts generally have positive influences, if determining it is possible, that is.

What kind of spur this question is Forum:ReferencePopups. I know my personal preference well enough, but I'm wondering if somewhere out there, how many times refs are clicked or hovered are documented, and if a comparison of before and after could be found to show whether or not there's an increase of activities, as in checking the refs. Somehow I feel that less people would do the clicking, but I'm biased, so I'd like to know. xDDD

The second question is about shedding some light on the matter: Harry Potter Wiki:Requests for permissions#Administrator; for some reason, currently there's two Users who are very active in Discussions but less so on the main HPW, both wanting to become Admins. One is already a Discussions Moderator and seemed to be doing a fine job with that User Right, which is probably why at least 3 people are somewhat not understanding the need for the additional Admin rights; like, how would being promoted as an Admin actually help performing the duties in Discussions? Am hoping to get a Staff's input on this.

Lastly, this one doesn't really have a need for specifically a Staff's help, but because I'm already posting to you, I figured I'd ask you to hopefully check out the request for adjustments at Template talk: Real book infobox. I mean, I believe I asked it where it's supposed to be asked, but it seems like whether or not it'd get answered, all depends on whether an Admin would stumble upon it by chance, which, I honestly think could take a while.

Like the issue with duplicate images, I understand the matter isn't exactly pressing, however, I feel that, the lack of those parameters is way long overdue, given the fact that interior artists and narrators go way back since the early days of the series' publication, and they have not been able to be correctly credited in the infobox. Really would like that to be rectified ASAP.

Hope to hear from you at some point! xD --Sammm✦✧(talk) 14:33, November 1, 2018 (UTC)

Hi there, Mike! So good to hear from you! Thank you for taking the time to reply!
For ReferencePopups; I think I was briefly worried due to reading a very helpful blogpost, but soon realized perhaps any hypothetical effects would not be counted towards this bounce rate, though still quite unsure. I mean, does a ref link (the stuff that'd get one to the reflist) count as "a link"? I'm hoping it's not (I tried to convince myself that it is not, but idk if it could actually be counted as one, since with "#", one can link to jump to sections within the same page, and in my very limited knowledge, ref tag kind of acts similar), because if it is, I'm assuming using the script would reduce a number of "clicks" since people would then be able to see stuff with just hovering over it, not sure if the entire process would contribute to anything at all in terms on determining whether "viewers stick around." Do you know who in specific I should ask these type of questions to? xD Anyhow, sorry if the above seemed slightly off topic; yes, knowing if the ref-check-rate (seems like a to-the-point description) would increase, would be great; I just figured I should also update you on my newfound worry lol. The last thing I want is to suggest a script that ended up, statistically speaking, making less viewer "stick around", if that makes any sense.
For Admins, I see! Thanks for the confirmation!
For Real book infobox; Ironyak1 has changed the protection level of the template, so I've gone ahead and added interior artist and narrator onto the infobox; was not too sure for the wording of "duration" (for audio editions), so that particular parameter has not been added yet.
Again, thanks so so much for the reply! =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:35, November 16, 2018 (UTC)
