Discussions Moderator

Due to the lack of active admins that regularly contribute at Discussions, I've made you and Annabeth and Percy Discussions Moderators. Thanks, and keep up the good work! --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:36, November 11, 2016 (UTC)

Congratulations on your promotion! :D ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 09:18, November 12, 2016 (UTC)
I have blocked Harry potter Griffindor, TheOriginalDoctor has been made Discussions Mod.
Moderators can't, by definition, block users, and that's not something that's really in my power to change. Thanks. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:28, December 13, 2016 (UTC)

Daring on Harry Potter wiki

Hey CC,

I was wondering some people are getting really annoyed at the dare game (not me) and I was wondering, so the people who like it can still do it can you create some sort of place we can do it like a Category in the post category?

RE:Discussions Board

Hi! I'm not sure. I can still access it; perhaps it was temporarily down? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:02, December 18, 2016 (UTC)

RE:Ban option for Moderators (With more info)

Hello. If it is possible, then I wouldn't feel comfortable changing it unilaterally; this is something that should be discussed by the community (feel free to add a new topic at The Wizengamot), and, at the very least, the other admins should be heard on the matter.

Also, Psithurism, Harrypotterfreak233, and have been made Discussions Mods. Cheers. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:04, December 20, 2016 (UTC)


Good. Right after undoing it, I thought that maybe I should have talked to you first. Good to see we both agree on that point. Have a nice day.--Rodolphus (talk) 11:42, December 21, 2016 (UTC)


Hey CC, Thanks for making me a moderator! Also, is there a page where we can see what posts and comments have been reported?? and why is the Moderation Panel?? Cheers, Harrypotterfreak233 (talk) 20:11, December 22, 2016 (UTC)


This user, Voldemort004, is posting kind of useless posts and he's pretending that he's actually Voldemort. I don't really know why I told you but I did anyway... Also, for Quotely, when and where can I have an interview with you? And I figured out the reported content thanks Harrypotterfreak233 (talk) 11:50, December 23, 2016 (UTC)

Voldemort004 (rule)

Hello CC, Yes I think we should make it a rule that you cannot say you are a canon character out of RolePlay. Also, he often talks about killing himself with a noose (hanging himself) which i don't find entirely appropriate... Thanks. Harrypotterfreak233 (talk) 13:28, December 23, 2016 (UTC)

RE: Harry Potter Netflix Show

Hi, not Seth, but I can answer. Yes, it is fake. If you take your time, you will notice that the date of this article is the samedate as when Fred and George were born. Namely, April 1st. It was an April Fools joke. TheTARDISLegilimens (talk) 13:15, November 19, 2017 (UTC)

I was going to say that's the first time I was hearing about it, but yeah. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:44, November 19, 2017 (UTC)

Sure, if you think I would be a good fit for the role, I'd be happy to take on the position. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 16:40, February 22, 2018 (UTC)


I suggest you use this template (userbox) that I created, type in {{Discussions mod}} It appears as this:

Uagadou subjects

How is Transfiguration, Alchemy, and Astronomy not being subjects at Uagadou not considered "canonical evidence"? Uagadou students are well-versed in Astronomy, Alchemy, and Self-Transfiguration meaning those are subjects at Uagadou, or they wouldn't be well-versed in it.

RE:Admin Dashboard

I have no idea why that's so. Odd. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:39, July 15, 2018 (UTC)

Says you're a discussion moderator, which could be the reason. AVoraciousReader (talk) 19:49, July 15, 2018 (UTC)
Don't think that's the case however, as my co-mods can't see it. I thought it could have been due to me being Councillor, but that wasn't the case either, as
I didn't have access to it on other wikis.
CosmicChronos Talk to me Contribs 20:09, July 15, 2018 (UTC)
I don't find it again, but I read in the Community Central Wiki that discussion mods should get access to the dashboard but I don't know anymore on which user talk page I read this, sorry.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 22:24, July 15, 2018 (UTC)
What do you mean by co-mods can’t see it? I’m pretty sure we can...Well, I know that I can. Plus, admins can’t give Discussion Mods the power to see the admin dashboard. Only FANDOM Staff can. By the way, Seth, we can’t edit any pages or anything, just we can only see it ;) --HarryPforLife (talk) 23:18, July 15, 2018 (UTC)

Hogwarts Hallways RP Thread (MagnificentMagnus)

I see that you've just locked the thread. What is the reason for this - is it too full? Or is it the content? Because, I was looking forward to continuing the RP... -- MagnificentMagnus   Talk   contribs 10:35, July 24, 2018 (UTC)

You can continue here: Roleplay

CosmicChronos Talk to me Contribs 10:41, July 24, 2018 (UTC) Thanks, Cos! Just need to get the other users there - I'll have to write on their user pages... -- MagnificentMagnus   Talk   contribs 10:57, July 24, 2018 (UTC)


I understand that you're only doing what you think is best, but I think our new rules are far too strict and are going to lead to the sudden death of the community. It's not something I feel I can be a part of. I already feel that we delete/lock far too much already, and this is just going to lead to almost everything being deleted because almost nobody that's part of the Discussions audience lives up to those standards. I could almost put up with the changes if it wasn't for this: "Ban after a breach of rules, no warning". That's completely unacceptable and I won't do it.

Anyway, I wish you all the best, but consider this message my immediate resignation and an end to my posting in Discussions. I know it's what they always say, but I mean it when I say this: it's not you, it's me. I can't moderate that strictly. I will stick to the editing side of the wiki from now on. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 16:00, July 24, 2018 (UTC)

RE: Magnus

I'm absolutely delighted by the idea of helping out as a pseudo-MOD! There's only one prob: since I don't have a phone, I can't use KIK to communicate - would the Wiki Chat suffice, then? --Regards,  MagnificentMagnus   Talk   contribs 02:37, August 9, 2018 (UTC)

P.S. One more thing - is Marc back? He's posting again... I hope that's a good sign... :)  MagnificentMagnus   Talk   contribs 02:45, August 9, 2018 (UTC)

No one is taking any moderation actions on the wiki. And if you want to take any actions at all, be sure to email the staff before you do so.

Reverb frost (talk) 09:30, October 13, 2018 (UTC)


Hey there kid, You are right, you don't need permission to mod a wiki you are assigned for. But you need permission from an admin because this situation isn't ideal. It's way different, so you will need to inform admin and have their consent. Anyways talking about the so called "PROOFS". Well the "PROOFS" that you have are the mod action list present in the insight option, which says I have made some 930+ action in past 90 days and 13 actions in past 30 days. Well those actions are me undeleting the deleted posts by ex-mod TheDarkMarc. And for that i have permission from an admin and a staff which I'm sure you aren't aware of. Moreover the past day 30 mod actions would most likely be me editing my own posts after the 24 hours limit which are considered as mod actions but isn't me modding. So when I say that I'm not doing any moderation at all, I mean it. If you want me to talk to staff and take out my own log actions list of HPW to confirm my statement I'll be happy to do so. And listen up kid, this thing of us coming after each other is over. So stop it and move on, get a job maybe. But if you are willing to start this thing all over again then let it be known that you are the initiator of this round of fight when it was clearly put to bed by admins. And why can't you assume my presence on HPW dboard as good faith. Assuming good faith is a wiki rule and as a councilor you are violating that rule by threatening me. So assume my presence as good faith rather than threaten me. Reverb frost (talk)

RE Multiple Accounts

I saw your message for Seth, but figured I'd point you to the Multiple Accounts Policy where it states - "All the accounts a user controls will be treated as the same person." and "If any of a user's accounts are to be blocked, then all accounts associated with that user will also be blocked." As such, your actions are entirely inline with the Wiki's policies. Just wanted you to know in case Seth is busy for a bit. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:27, October 19, 2018 (UTC)

I was going to say the same, but Ironyak1 beat me to it.
As for the other matter, I am of the opinion that there doesn't have to be an administrator specifically assigned for the Discussions board. That said, I do realise it would perhaps be for the best if there were. You are free to apply for the position here, pending a community discussion/vote.
Cheers. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 11:00, October 20, 2018 (UTC)

Permissions request

You may want to review Harry Potter Wiki:Voting policy - note that you'll need 3 more yes votes than no votes and whichever admin handles the voting process cannot participate. I'd advise that you are prepared so that you can get the majority votes you need should voting be opened. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 03:41, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Voting is usually left open for a week or two, but it is up the admin moderating the vote. I have to ask - in this edit why would you remove the comment and say the user was not eligible to vote? Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:11, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

RE:Dmods additional rights

Hey there, Having opinions is not wrong. I know that the vote will happen but people should be aware of the reality. Making you an admin won't change anything. And your priority is d/b and an admin is responsible for the entire wiki. I can say this from a long observation of you that you cannot handle wikis. The only way you can do so is by going to extreme ends and imposing rigorous rules. And listen kid, I don't mix personal issues with professional ones. So you don't need to be worried about it. I want the admins to be well aware of the facts, +ve and -ve so that they can make right desicion. You talk about editing categories as a councilor you should be aware of the latest update regarding that something that comes under our NDA. And worry not, I am well aware of my duties and responsibilities, I am not insulting anyone just stating facts. Truth is bitter, really bitter. Reverb frost (talk)

New Voting/Admin Rights

Hello CosmicChronos, after looking into your and Reverb Frosts conversations, I decided I'm going to add my opinion on the matter. One thing I see wrong with you becoming an admin here is your activity. In case you haven't noticed, you've been (luckily) listed as semi-active as a Dmod, which says to me that you can barely deal with Mod rights on such an active wiki. I quite agree that there should be a new admin, but I don't believe you are the person for the job. I believe an admin for the Discussion Board is a terrific idea, but your intentions are wrong. I am currently an admin and Bureaucrat for 3 wiki's, so I am familiar with everything the admins do. When the vote finally comes, I'm gonna have to say that I won't be voting.


Harrypotterexpert101 Talk:Harrypotterexpert101 02:18, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

It wasn't Reverb that convinced me. I personally don't agree with Reverb ever, but he has some truth to his words.  I had a Chat with The Dark Marc a couple months ago, and he mentioned you being very inactive. So I checked out, and noticed there was a month span between two of your posts. I agree Reverb isn't the nicest person to get to deal with, but that doesn't mean he is lying.  Listen, CosmicChronos, if you were more active, I would vote yes. But the fact being that you were very inactive recently, I don't know if I will vote of not. Marc also told me about Reverb trying to get you banned for violating the age policy. I can't say an underage user as an admin will help the wiki at all. 


Harrypotterexpert101 15:02, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Hi Dave, Periods of inactivity happen for all sorts of reasons, and in my opinion, Cosmics recent inactivity is justified and not a reflecion on his ability as a DMOD or potential Admin. I'd also like to vouch for Cosmics maturity, which is well beyond his years. If I hadn't mentioned his being a younger member in private discussion, I guarentee you'd never have realised. In my humble opinion, age should not be a deciding factor in this case. I have been in discussion with Cosmic about his application, and after lengthy discussion, agreed to support him in this endeavour.

The Dark MarcSlytherincrest (talk) The Dark Marc 21:21, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Edit.. wait.. Dave, just two days ago you said this:

I agree CosmicChronos, the Mod team needs an admin, and I think you should get admin powers. --Dave 22:59, October 22, 2018 (UTC)

Re: About my edits

Hi there! No need to apologize for spotting what I wrote! I don't believe there's any privacy on Wikia/Fandom unless it's in chat lol, so no worries!

And yes, just to be clear, I was also under the assumptions that you made those edits because you were trying to be helpful; I didn't think you were intentionally being counterproductive or anything. If that's the impression I'm giving, I apologize for it! Honest mistakes happens, I only brought it up to an admin because, like I said, I didn't see myself as a good choice for delivering this message (I have had people telling me that I often word stuff in ways that could be taken the wrong way.)

It seems like my worry was misplaced. xD

For Astronomy, in theory, I do see the potential for separating the class and the field, like how Xylomancy turned out: with also very little on the page but technically correct, for so far that's all we know.

"Not thinking it to have enough content to be separate pages," is my personal opinion as of now; what you did isn't "wrong" per se, as explained, there is merit in doing so, it just hasn't been done yet. If that makes any sense. I actually tried to go with that option, that's why I edited the page and placed the {{Youmay}} template for directional purpose, but got stuck on what to put on the page, which was why I ended up suggesting it to essentially be renamed back. The Admin seems to think it's fine to be left as a redirect, so while I'm confused, I won't worry too much over it. I hope what I wrote didn't put you off from editing! Not my intention. This wiki could always do with more help! =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:05, October 24, 2018 (UTC)

Tom Riddle Unsupported Flight reference issue

Did I remove the reference? Unless that reference says that Voldemort invented unsupported flight, than its a mistake. Fix it if nessecary and if so I apologise. My intention was just to remove the part in the article which stated he invented Unsupported flight as JK retconned that out of canon. StargateFanBB (talk) 13:41, October 26, 2018 (UTC)

House Debate/House Points Game

Thanks, CosmicChronos!

I'll work on it as soon as possible, but we might want to find another way to give House Points besides discussions, such as Golden Quills/Best Question/Best Answer awards...

May I ask when I did this? I am quite careful not to do so.

A link will suffice. Cheers.

AzuraKitsune (talk) 15:57, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

You are mistaken, I have an awfully short memory when it comes to comments, you see, I post a lot of them and they become impossible to track. However as you must have read it before deciding to delete, may I ask you to tell me as much of the contents as you remember? For I am very sure that I did not respond off-topic at that.

I just want to make sure, as I myself have already forgotten.

EDIT: Sorry, but I shall change "tell me as much as of the contents as you remember" to can you quote me them, or send a screenshot of them? I'm pretty sure most or all of the messages I sent there were NOT off-topic, so I would like proof.

Cheers! AzuraKitsune (talk) 16:43, November 12, 2018 (UTC)

Administrator Vote

Hello CC, it's Dave, and I see you support the idea of a new admin. I am currently trying to become an admin for the discussion board. I need your help. I will link you to a convo that has all of the details.

Cheers, Dave (talk) 03:04, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

Here is the Convo:

Note: Magnus said he voted for, but Ironyak1 deleted it, saying I didn't have permission to hold a vote. I should have told Ironyak, that's my bad. I'll have to get Magnus to vote again.

Dave (talk) 16:04, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

RE:sign your message

Which message are you talking about? The only edit made by me was on permission request page and i signed it. Be more specific and che k facts before makimg suggestions Reverb frost (talk) Also as far as my knowledge goes signing the message is important. 3×~ or 4×~ is user's discretion. Reverb frost (talk)

Re: Orchideous

Hey there, CosmicChronos! (still want to continue our talk elsewhere, just that things were slightly hectic on my end today; it's also past 12AM where I am, I hope I will still be able to read what I wrote when I wake up and that it's not gibberish lol.

I'm sorry to say, I didn't really notice the part you edited, and was mainly reverting to this edit by Seth because Quinnieboy added duplicated info that's already present within the article. I just checked again, and idk why Herbifors was specifically styled that way; given that "Herbifors Spell" has a citation, it looks like that's an actual name, so it itself could probably be more ideal to match the second listed.

Again, I'm sorry I didn't notice the additional change you made, was too focused on removing the duplicate. D; My edit wasn't targeting to revert yours but the one before that; sorry. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 16:47, November 15, 2018 (UTC)

Improving Discussions

As a follow-up to the commentary on the Requests for Permissions, I've made a post to gather input on how to improve Discussions. I'm hoping you'll share some ideas on how to accomplish this. Many thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:24, November 16, 2018 (UTC)

Re:Nicholas Flamel

Oh - that's typical. I tend to make one sentence, then change my mind on how to phrase it as I write and then change it, and sometimes I neglect to look over what I wrote previously to see how it matched. I would hope that such basic grammatical errors on my part, including typos, should be pretty obvious isn't intentional. 

I'm done adding everything I wanted to add for now, so please, feel free to look it over and correct any mistakes you mgiht find. :-D Maester Martin (talk) 20:12, November 17, 2018 (UTC)

Hogwarts Mystery event

Hey - FANDOM is offering to do a giveaway to promote Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery in the Google Play best game vote. I am buried at work and figured this would work best in Discussions so I referred them to you. Hopefully you or the other Discussion mods have ideas for something fun - if so please follow-up with Rrrockio. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 01:25, November 20, 2018 (UTC)

RE:Uagadou and Castelobruxo houses

Fandom is not a canon source. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:20, November 20, 2018 (UTC)

RE Please check this out

Hey - in reviewing this, I didn't see any evidence of MagnificentMagnus actually misusing their rights, correct? Regardless of the intent or expectation surrounding their promotion, all users with the same roles have the same rights and responsibilities. All mods (or admins, bureaucrats, etc) are created equal, there are none "more equal than others" to borrow from Orwell. The goal is for everyone to use their rights to the betterment of the wiki, but no one is able to tell others what they should do with their permissions. As long as MagnificentMagnus isn't abusing their privileges, there really isn't any grounds to demote them IMHO. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but that's where I stand. Let me know if I misunderstood something. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 04:28, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

There is no such thing as a "Half-Mod"; all mods are equal in rights and responsibilities. No mod is obligated to limit the use of their permissions based on what another mod says, except if they are abusing their rights or repeatedly ignoring established policies (which should have the wide support of the community). If a mod needs some guidance to improve then it should be given, but unless there are repeated abuses of their rights, there is not sufficient justification for demotion. Individuals are also free to say they are leaving and then change their mind.
To reiterate what has been raised before, FANDOM's guidance for Discussion Moderators is to moderate lightly. Under such guidance there is no need for management hierarchies or assigned tasks. Any participation in moderated events or discussions is completely voluntary, not a job that needs to be performed "or else". I would suggest re-reading FANDOM's Discussions guidance to understand the light, casual, and fun atmosphere that they are hoping to achieve. Hope that helps --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:12, February 7, 2019 (UTC)
I would re-emphasize the point you made - no one has a job on this site (outside of FANDOM Staff) and no one is anyone's boss. It is a collaboration of equals, with different roles, for which people volunteer. MagnificentMagnus is no more obligated to do as you tell her, anymore than you are to do as she tells you. Unless someone is abusing their rights and causing harm, there is not any grounds for demotion. Partial inactivity does not qualify.
I continually raise the FANDOM's Guidelines for Discussions because it clarifies what their expectations are for their site. While you may wish to offer an opportunity for a deeper level of discussion, you cannot obligate every poster to participate nor exclude all other forms of discussion. While Mods may wish to coordinate activities together, none of them are required to participate. There are no Half-Mods - all Discussion Moderators have the same permissions as indicated on their profile. While MagnificentMagnus may have agreed to handle a certain task, their lack of doing so does not mean they cannot do other Moderation tasks, although I would obviously be hesitant to count on them in the future for other Mod led activities. I'll be around in chat for awhile if you want to speak privately about this, or feel free to respond on my talk page. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:50, February 8, 2019 (UTC)


I was just in the discussions, and I saw this user: MadEye00. Judging by his bio and username, I believe he is the sockpuppet of the already banned users Madeye47 and MadEye gt47.

The user was banned for abusing multiple accounts and inappropriate behaviour, so I just wanted to bring to notice that they seem to have created yet another account.

Have a nice day. 민태준 - 슈가 (Inconvenience me here)! 17:44, February 7, 2019 (UTC)

Discussions Guidelines

Can you point me to where discussions where held for the current guidelines and any user input gathering or voting that was done? On the wiki-side, this is easy as it falls either onto the policy's Talk page or in the Forum, but I'm not sure if you've kept links to the relevant threads. I've see some of them in the past, but am hoping to get a clearer picture. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 22:16, February 9, 2019 (UTC)

Sock Puppet account

Hey CosmicChronos,

it looks like MadEye99 is a sock puppet of several other MadEye accounts. Just wanted to point it out to you.

Hi - while I agree that abusing multiple accounts to circumvent a ban is against policy, I could not find any short term blocks on the original account. Do you have a Discussion link to where this problem started and what warnings and short term measures were taken? Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:00, February 11, 2019 (UTC)

Blocking guidelines

Hey there. In reviewing the block log and some user appeals, I've noticed that users have often been blocked, or completely banned, without any shorter term blocks being applied first, and that links to their offenses are often not recorded anywhere. As per FANDOM's guidance, blocks should be short-term to start (on the order of a few hours to a few days), with longer term blocks reserved for repeated or extremely objectionable offenses.

I would also request that a link to their offending posts also be recorded either with the Block Reason or on the user's Talk page so anyone can review the reasons for the block. Also, their Talk page should remain available for editing should the user need to ask any questions or make an appeal.

Please don't take this as a criticism of any particular block, I just want to make sure all the Discussion Mods are on the same page. Of course, please let me know if there are any questions or concerns. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:04, February 12, 2019 (UTC)

Blocking sockpuppets indefinitely (that is banning them) is standard practice across FANDOM. However, the block or ban on their original account is open for appeal and if not well documented and justified the block is likely to be modified or undone. The burden of proof is on those of us with the extra rights and responsibilities. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:28, February 12, 2019 (UTC)
Gotcha - it should be made clear that the account is sockpuppet for which original account as the posts themselves are not the issue. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:35, February 12, 2019 (UTC)


The vote is not closed and you cannot tally votes. As such, I have deleted your post. Please leave the mediation of the vote to the Administrator who opened it as required by the Voting Policy. --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:38, February 19, 2019 (UTC)

The Voting Policy states how votes are run - "The administrator who opens a vote will close it, unless an undue amount of time has passed and no action has been taken." You are not an admin and have no role in closing a vote nor tallying votes. There is no need to "help out" with these tasks and it only serves to confuse users as to the status and outcome of the vote. Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 03:35, February 20, 2019 (UTC)

Discussions deletions

You need to make sure that any deletion of a Discussions post is based on the current Guidelines. I have now seen multiple posts that you have deleted that are not in violation of any Guidelines. Any more deletions of this sort will be considered an abuse of your rights and will have consequences. --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:32, February 24, 2019 (UTC)

You've been put on a 24 hour block for continuing to delete Discussions Posts that are not in violation of the Guidelines and were actually in response to you swearing in a post. Your Talk Page is available for you to discuss this situation if you want to explain your actions. --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:26, February 24, 2019 (UTC)
It is not stated in the rules that it is not allowed to swear, it really isn't. It is written that you should be civil towards others, my bad language wasn't directed to anyone, therefore I haven't broken that rule. Furthermore, I deleted that comment because it merely pointed out that I swore, and had absolutely nothing to do with the vote, therefore it is entirely off topic to the conversation. It is written in the rules that off topic posts are not allowed unless posted in the off topic post, therefore I deleted it. CosmicChronos Talk to me Contribs 16:32, February 24, 2019 (UTC)
You feel it is appropriate to swear because it is not directed at a person and that your behavior fits the expectation to "Keep discussions civil" and "open-minded about differing opinions"? Users pointing out poor behavior in a thread is entirely on-topic and should be supported, not deleted. You are demonstrating some extremely poor judgement on the use of your rights. --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:43, February 24, 2019 (UTC)
It is off topic! It had nothing to do with the vote, absolutely nothing. If they had a problem with my use of language, which I even warned about then they should have warned me on the ask a mod a question thread or on my talk page. It was purely off topic and had nothing to do with the vote. In any case, her comment about my bad language is not valid, because it wasn't a swear word, it's a word used regularly by news sites, check the wikipedia article on it. So even if the user was "pointing out poor behaviour in a thread", they did so incorrectly, and in any case they should have done it elsewhere.

It is not off-topic to make a reply to another person's post in the same thread. It is not off-topic to point out inappropriate language, nor is it reasonable to believe they should jump through arbitrary hoops to report such behavior, instead of doing it directly where it happened. Your expectations and justifications on this are severely misguided. Please take the time to understand this completely and use your rights accordingly or they will be removed.
As for the language, you knew it was not appropriate, which is why you had to preface your statement with "excuse my language." This site is not a news site, tends to have a younger audience, and swearing is not part of civil (or courteous and polite) conversation, as required in the Guidelines. Again, there is no justification, so please refrain from such behavior or there will be additional consequences. --Ironyak1 (talk) 17:07, February 24, 2019 (UTC)
