- "Rumoured" by whom? Anyone can invent a rumour, but if it isn't in any canon source, it doesn't belong here. This is an encyclopaedia, not a dumping ground for wild speculation. Besides, if Crookshanks is indeed the Potters' cat, he would be at least 14-15 when Hermione got him, which is fairly old for a cat. — evilquoll (talk) 01:37, October 31, 2017 (UTC)

Hey,do you think Albus Dumbledore deserves to have Defense Against The Dark Arts in His Magical Skills and Abillities? After all he did defeat The Most powerful Dark Wizards ever.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Anthony William (talk • contribs) 15:59, October 21, 2017 (UTC).
Just wanted to know if cursing was allowed on this Wikia. Because a friend named HarryPotterRules1 recently cursed me over Lucius Malfoy's death info. I would greatly appreciate it if you inform him that adding assumptions or personal point of view on any character or event related to any literary creation violates the copyright law. My friend believes that Lucius Malfoy was actually declared dead by the author herself owing to some specific valuable words of Draco in "Cursed child". It would be the world to me if you kindly make him understand that mentioning of a person in past tense, Doesn't actually make him Dead.
Hope you are having a nice day!
Hello, I would like to register a complaint, hopefully leading to a warning or block for this user. Here, you can see a generally poorly written edit and speculation; specifically the claim that he destroyed the "Shield of Hogwarts" with "Lightning Curse". He merely repeated what was already said in the duelling section, albeit in lower quality writing. Over all his edit has typos and speculation.
Here: He claimed Albus Dumble possessed "unparalled" levels of magical power. In the wandless magic section his basically praised his abilities and over exaggerated them. The part about "thousands of sleeping bags" was a lie, it was in fact hundreds. Several users have reverted his poor edits that he hasn't sought help to improve, which you can here: Dumbledore?action=history link by CTRL+ F and typing Anthony William.
I hope that you can put a stop to this before the damage becomes irreparable.
I'm not sure what the issue is with the information I included on the Pensieve's page. If you'll check the Wikipedia page for baptismal fonts, you'll see the information is correct. Unless you're thinking like an old-fashioned school teacher, Wikipedia's information is frequently checked and upkept by admins like yourself to make sure information is correct and sourced. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Garre9988 (talk • contribs) 03:38, December 21, 2017 (UTC).
- On Wikipedia, as here, the admins can't be everywhere or catch everything the instant it is posted. Hence Wikipedia is no more reliable than any other open wiki. Remember the "Ronnie Haslehurst co-composed Reach" hoax which not only ran for several days before being caught, but resulted in several falsified obituaries being published? — evilquoll (talk) 10:40, December 29, 2017 (UTC)
Australian wizarding school
I defimitely remeber that JKR mentioned that there is a school for Australian wizards in 2016, though it seems that the tweet doesn't exist anymore. She didn't reveal the school's excact location, though. I think I have found it. https://twitter.com/jk_rowling/status/693385141306130432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.snitchseeker.com%2Fharry-potter-news%2Fj-k-rowling-teases-canadian-australian-wizarding-world-schools-future-reveal-103231%2F--Rodolphus (talk) 09:23, December 29, 2017 (UTC)
Subpage of Archive 5
New editor Harrypotter858 has created and posted to a new page called User talk:Cubs Fan2007/Archive 5/Archive 1. I presume he meant to post to this page, but somehow got badly confused. — evilquoll (talk) 15:41, January 8, 2018 (UTC)
Hi. I just signed up to this site, so I'm not really sure how to use it yet. :) But I removed Bill Weasley from the list of known werewolves, because in canon he isn't one, as Fenrir was in human form when he attacked him. He isn't a "partial" werewolf as there's no such thing. :D I hope it was okay that I did so.
What does this mean?
what does that mean....ican edit posts now>....iam confused
Very sorry about the edit, it was my friend, he as of now cannot get his own account due to E-Mail problems, regards,

Hello! I wanted to report the next user:
- This was your very first post on this wiki, and you have made only one more post since. To be made an admin, you need a lot more track record than that. — evilquoll (talk) 07:52, May 19, 2018 (UTC)
Hi, I have a question that I haven't been able to find the answer to. How much does a magical trunk cost? is it more than the wand? The wand (According to first book values) costs 700 gbp or 7 galleons. How much does that make a trunk in comparison? Also, I am writing a fan story where the Galleon is equal to 100 gbp so I'll need to value according to this system. Considering that trunks are generally long lasting and some believe they can be enchanted for more space and blood locks and the likes I'm sure they are expensive.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Yukimori-Cherokee (talk • contribs) 04:01, May 19, 2018 (UTC).

List of the Missing
Hey, I don't know if there was a submit question area or anything, and I couldn't find the list on the wiki, but is there by any chance a list floating around, of every witch or wizard who "went missing" before the start of the second Wizarding war? If not that's ok, I don't really have much expertise in making pages on a wiki, but the question came up when I read the profile of Amelia Bones. Thanks for the wiki, it's a cool pocket guide to have on hand when watching the movies.
Hi there! It's kind of late for me (2AM-ish), so I apologize in advance if this is info I can find on my own (I feel like it is;) was wondering what the protection level for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is? And if it's not already set on "Block new and unregistered users," was wondering if you can consider changing it to that?
I think previously there have in fact been great contributions made by new users, but just now, a user who has never edited on this wiki, has been, no doubt NOT INTENTIONALLY but unfortunately, messing around the structure of the said article. After undoing those edits, I then found them inserting relatively redundant statement (it's not wrong info, just considerably irrelevant) to the section that's already growing pretty large.
It's a really small thing, but with this game actually still being updated as of now, the article is a more high traffic page; I just think perhaps a "bar" ATM to restrict the amount of editors would benefit the page to be less likely to be accidentally altered negatively by people who are new to editing.
Hi there! Thanks for the previous help on the weird things happening while uploading images. Terribly sorry to bother you again; the full account of the situation (in my point of view) is submitted at Harry Potter Wiki:Requests for administrator attention#Infobox image preference, but I'm writing to you because I have an update on the situation. Previously the user in question didn't bother to leave any reason as to why they were undoing edits, now they left one: "A lot of pages have a full body photo in the infobox."
I have no doubt there ARE SOME, but I really want to know if the statement is enough to justify the action, given NONE OF THE MAIN CHARACTERS has a full body photo! I do not understand why, just because that, yes, some articles are like that, when CLEARLY NONE OF THE MAJOR ONES ARE, it is then okay to use this as a reason to change all the images in the infoboxes of characters from Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.
Like I stated in the requests, this caused the inbox to be long, not focused on the characters facial appearances, while also messing up with article preview. I'm primarily seeing the CROTCH of those characters that have their images swapped when their articles appeared at the bottom on the site.
Hello there. On this page: "http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/User:ArthurCh8/Images" there are several images only used on that talk page and many are taken illegally (ex. someone using a camera to take a photo of a Harry Potter movie playing on a screen). Might I suggesting deleting the ones that aren't used in other pages + the illegal ones? Murali9395 (talk) 05:44, June 7, 2018 (UTC)
Recent vandalism on the wiki
Regarding the recent amount of vandalism that has occured on the wiki in the last twenty minutes or so from writing this, do you have any ideas on how to prevent this from happening continuously? Because it all centres around this one person (I'm assuming it's the same person over different accounts) keeps replacing images with a very rude, unwanted image.
- I see - well, I guess that makes sense. Thank you for letting me know.
I have a friend on here called xonceuponatimex, and she was recently indefinitely blocked from this wiki because of "vandalism and/or general disruption" -- the situation being that she was accidentally contributing to the wrong wiki. Since she cannot contact admins of this wiki herself, I've contacted you requesting that you unblock her from this wiki, she only wants to make sure that what she's done has been deleted off of the wiki entirely.
Thank you, and sorry for the inconvenience!
The member in question has been unbanned after your explanation. Unfortunately there was an attempt to login from a different account (😒) from the same ip which resulted in a 24 hour autoblock which I can't lift.

Escuse me but I have a question. In the rules of this wiki it says that you are not allowed to post your favorite Harry Potter characters or your house. But why is that not allowed?? Cherrypop14 (talk) 22:00, August 7, 2018 (UTC)
I don't really know how to use a talk page, but since I am passing through and you are an admin, I thought you should know that almost all the pictures in media on the Skirmish_in_the_Chamber_of_Secrets page are broken...Someone should probably fix that.
Have a good one.

Harry Potter Wiki:Policy ("Naming articles" heading)
Under the heading Naming articles on the page linked above, there is a grammar error: it says "(e.g. and Hector Dagworth-Granger)" while it should say "(e.g. Hector Dagworth-Granger)." Could someone please fix that? Normal users can't edit the policy. Thank you! Qibli77 (talk) 10:21, November 2, 2018 (UTC)
Hi there! I think the change was done due to the following statement on HPW:POLICY#Naming of articles:
An article's title should contain the last name used throughout the Harry Potter series, regardless of marriage.Though perhaps interpreted differently, as the "latest used name" throughout the Harry Potter series. (Was the sentence meant to mean "the surname used throughout the Harry Potter series"? If so, perhaps rephrasing it would be ideal to avoid reading "last" and "name" as separate words.) Anyways, the reason of the change seemed plausible, because in Quidditch Through the Ages (2018 audio edition), Ginny is officially referred to as Ginny Potter, which, I can see fit the bill if going with "the latest used name". I'm not the one who made it, but I can see it go both ways, just figured I'd chip in. =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 01:42, November 15, 2018 (UTC)
- I know, which was why after I saw the move, I went to write User talk:Ironyak1#Potential policies updates?= (sorry about the extra "="; that was a typo, just haven't got around to removing it.) to inform that the example in the policy is the opposite; I think even at the time I've been reading it as "latest used name" instead of "the surname used", so thanks for the modification =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 02:45, November 15, 2018 (UTC)
Hey - Sorry, I really did think that the long discussion we had on married naming conventions set new precedent and that the Policy was just not up to date (like a few others). I'll dig up the conversation and we can revisit the policy update another time - not a critical issue with the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald floodgates opening. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:24, November 15, 2018 (UTC)
- If it means anything, there's Forum:Revisting policy on the naming of articles; though after reading it, I failed to understand if there's a conclusion on the matter. D; --Sammm✦✧(talk) 06:41, November 15, 2018 (UTC)
Wordmark and Background
Hello! I'm just letting you know that because of the release of Crimes of Grindelwald I have taken it upon myself to update the site's wordmark and background. This was mainly because the old wordmark had the block of white around the actual logo rather than the transparency that would have allowed it to blend in with the header color. I used the current font style for Crimes of Grindelwald to tie in with the film, and also used promotional material to update the background which was still using images from Fantastic Beasts. I have also updated the main page slider with more relevant articles for the new film.
Usually I look for input when making changes like this that affect the way the site looks in a significant way, but I felt that the update was needed due to the release of the new movie so I apologise if the change is sudden or jarring. In hindsight I should I have done this earlier and gotten input from the administration team so if you feel any changes need to be made, or the changes reverted, then please let me know. Hopefully though, the design rework is acceptable. Once the film is over, I will endeavour to create a new permanent wordmark that looks better in the header space. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 14:00, November 19, 2018 (UTC)
