I noticed you've made a number of helpful edits recently, and I wanted to invite you to join the upcoming House Points Game. By continuing to make helpful edits and improving the overall quality of the Wiki, you can help your team earn points toward winning the House Cup. You can read more about the game here, and sign up at the the Participants List here. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me or a Prefect of the House of your choosing. I look forward to your help in making the Harry Potter Wiki even better. - Nick O'Demus 18:25, September 13, 2009 (UTC)


Please, before you go and start changing all tons of articles, stop. This needs to be discussed, I have started it on Quirrels talk page. I just wanted to let you know to revert the edits and moves, as I will be doing until it is confirmed. Thanks -- Ratneer Owl Me! 22:07, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

Extended Project

I just wanted to let you know that I´ve added the house ghost pages to your project. Do they count as staff? I´ve tried to extend Helena´s and the Baron´s pages myself, but perhaps others can help.--Rodolphus 10:23, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. I guess they can count as employees. Butterfly the rabbit 11:48, January 17, 2010 (UTC)

Filius Flitwick

Hello I'm Station7 and I have seen that Filius Flitwick is your favourite character. How long are you working to make that page good?--Station7 11:55, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

A very, very long time. I shall not rest until that page is cramped with awesomeness! Butterfly the rabbit 11:58, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

I see you have here to. Is she to a favourite character?--Station7 19:41, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

No. I hate her! But I feel I need to rewrite the article. Butterfly the rabbit 19:57, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

big lol Butterfly the rabbit. You got humor.--Station7 19:57, February 2, 2010 (UTC)


This template feels as if we are trying to imply that all the schools have the same examinations system, and the same courses.

This is not true. Only Hogwarts has this examination system, and this particualr course structure.

Perhaps I would suggest splitting this Template to Wizarding Schools and Hogwarts Education.

Sithjedi 13:49, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Sure. I'll fix it. Butterfly the rabbit

Template: Charms

Hi, I wanted to let you know that I have created a Charms template, which I have based on your Herbology template.

Template: Charms

Do you think that we should create templates for other subjects, e. g. Potions, Transfiguration and Defence?--Rodolphus 16:28, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah. I'm already designing a Study of Ancient Runes template at the moment. Butterfly the rabbit 17:41, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Re: Subjects

About Maths and Geography: The contents of this and this classrooms indicate indicate that the subjects were taught in Harry´s first and second years, but there is no direct canoical support, so we could remove it.--Rodolphus 16:36, March 3, 2010 (UTC)

Aurora Sinistra‎‎

Please stop adding information and images from the unidentified female teacher into Aurora Sinistra‎‎'s article. There is no evidence to suggest they are the same person, and saying that they are is speculation. Thank you. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:06, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

Visit the talk page for Aurora Sinistra first, thank you. Butterfly the rabbit 17:07, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
That proves nothing. I repeat stop it. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:10, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
You stop it! Stop being so immature! (I'm telling mom!)
You are going to be banned from this site if you continue. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:15, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Right back at you, stop ruining this wiki! Butterfly the rabbit 17:16, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
You are adding false information to the wiki, I am not. Who's going to be banned? Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:20, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
No one, because NONE of that is false information! It';s true and you can't handle it! Butterfly the rabbit 17:21, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Firstly, adding the protection template to an article does not actually protect it. You do not have the authority or the power to do that. Secondly, if you'd care to look at the talk page of Aurora Sinistra‎‎, you will notice that Seth Cooper, an administrator of this wiki, has said that merging the articles is innapropriate, as we do not know they are the same person. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:27, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Can we just resolve this peacefully by making a forum or something to prove you wrong? Butterfly the rabbit 17:29, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
The administrators have said not to merge the articles. I suggest that you do as your told. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 17:32, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

Proof? Butterfly the rabbit 17:33, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

Aurora with Hermione:)

Hello! I found a picture of Sinistra with Hermione. because my level of English is below the minimum, could be responsible for writte the section about the relationship of Aurora with his students?

Really? Cool! Me happy :) Butterfly the rabbit 17:42, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm really excited (I don't know why I'm so happy about it, I need a life). Thank you SO much!Butterfly the rabbit 17:45, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
jajaj thanks you!
look at this; at the wikipedia, is confirmed that(aurora is played by natalie hallam): Pol 871 17:50, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Where? I can't find it, but my Spanish is a little rusty. Butterfly the rabbit 17:57, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Found it! Yes! I knew it was Sinistra! Butterfly the rabbit 17:59, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
It does not prove she is Sinistra. Wikipedia is not a source due to the fact that it can be edited by anyone. Natalie Hallam is credited as "Wizard teacher", not Aurora Sinistra. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 18:02, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
The talk pages are for discussing the article. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 18:14, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
Ummmmm.... We know that! Butterfly the rabbit 18:17, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
If Rodolphous or Joeworthy wish to add their names to that list they will do so themselves. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 19:01, May 14, 2010 (UTC)
If you would be so kind as to turn your attention to the Aurora Sinistra forum you'd see that several people disagree with you. I don't need to make friends on the wiki. I have real friends. It might interest you to know that I've been here alot longer than you, and I am already a roleback and a Prefect. Jayce DarkmarkAvada KedavraCrucioImperio 20:19, May 14, 2010 (UTC)


Please don't add any more images of this women to articles claiming that she's Aurora Sinistra. It's getting a bit tiresome. –K.A.JTCE 14:13, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

I haven't added ANY images of her. Butterfly the rabbit 15:23, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
Well that's a lie. I just removed one from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry article. –K.A.JTCE 15:33, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
I did that like two days ago. Butterfly the rabbit 15:34, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
It does not matter when you did it. Just don't do it again. –K.A.JTCE 15:38, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, but would you mind? I'm busy on the Charmed Wiki. Butterfly the rabbit 15:47, May 15, 2010 (UTC)
No need to be rude. –K.A.JTCE 15:52, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Aurora Sinistra warning

Despite your belief that you are correct, this Wiki does not engage in speculation. This is the reason for the Aurora Sinistra article being locked and your edits reverted. I have since unlocked the article, editing out all the speculatory information gleaned from the films and by inference from the books. If you still wish to attempt to nominate the article for FA, then by all means do so, but keep in mind that speculation is discouraged in articles. Only hard, canonical fact is allowed.

Now to the matter of your posts in the forum, on my talk page, and in the edit history. Engaging in edit wars is not allowed on this wiki, and administrative action can be taken in cases such as this. Also, adding the names of other users to support your position whether you know they support you or not is not allowed. Any future acts like this will lead to a block. Lastly, as stated on the forum page, canonical issues are not decided by popular vote. Please bear this in mind for the future. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:27, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Template Change

I believe your change broke page layouts. See Neville_Longbottom for an example. OverlordQ 03:07, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'd say no. This because she might have been named after her grandmother's nickname, and not her first name. Of course, this might deserve a "Behind the scenes" note. Why do you ask? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 20:25, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

No reason. I just wasn't sure. Thanks. Butterfly the rabbit 20:26, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry. Butterfly the rabbit 20:31, August 8, 2010 (UTC)


As I pointed out on the talk page, merpeople and Wizards are the only pluralized being/beast pages. It makes no sense for only Phoenix to be changed to the plural when Hippogriff, Centaur, Manticore, Thestral, Three-headed dog, Blast-Ended Skrewt, Kneazle, Puffskein, Vampire, Hag, Goblin, Dementor, House-elf, Veela, Werewolf, Giant, Muggle, and the larger categories Beast, Being and Human are all in the singular. Unless all those are going to be changed to plural as well, I'm moving Phoenixes back to Phoenix. --Emmy () 15:28, October 28, 2010 (UTC)

Article titles

Hi Butterfly the rabbit. Just so you know; describtors such as "so and so's father" etc, are only used when we don't have a more canocial/acurate name to call them. In the case of Goyle, Crabbe and Nott they are all referred to by their last names by Voldemort. So we don't need to use the "father" denominator. Thanks:) Jayden Matthews 21:51, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Image uploads

Thank you for contributing image uploads to the Harry Potter Wiki. However, your recent upload was in breach of our image policy, and has since been corrected. In future, please be sure to fill out the information template that is provided on the upload page, in particular citing the source from which the image comes from, and adding categories. This is to help keep images organised and catalogued, and to provide clear sourcing for all uploads. Please be aware that images missing this information may be subject to deletion, and, in certain cases, uploading images after being asked to provide the correct information may lead to a block for the uploader. If you have any doubts or questions regarding this, please contact one of the administrators. Thank you for your cooperation.--Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:43, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

Please read and comply with the above message. Failure to properly source and license images may result in administrative action. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 18:12, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
I've uploaded a lot of images - I don't know which one. -- Bee T. Are50px(Call me!!) 18:13, January 10, 2011 (UTC)
All images that you upload have to be properly sourced and licensed as per the image policy. This edit shows the type of information that all image uploads required to have on the page. Please ensure that all future uploads include this information. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:37, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. I don't know which one I forgot to categorize, though... -- Bee T. Are50px(Call me!!) 20:07, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Charmed Wiki

I was going to unblock you today because I thought 3 days and then monitoring your behavior afterwards was enough but Khan felt 3 months is more suitable because of your behavior. Maybe just email Khan - email address is on the Charmed Wiki main page - and explain yourself without pointing fingers at people or blaming people for what happened. Also don't use facts or anything of the sort about characters to try to persuade an unblock. You have contributed significantly to the wiki, so all those contribs could be taken into consideration; your block may also be lessened to only a few weeks but I don't know how Khan will approach the situation.--HalliwellManorAkaDsc385 21:40, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Dear Butterfly, thank you for deleting my edits. Those incantations were REAL. Anyway I think you are stupid for doing that. If you don't believe that I write real things here's a LINK Hope you will become smarter soon, and stop deleting other people's posts. :)

Image uploads

You are still not applying the {{Information}} template correctly. Please compare the revisions regarding this edit I made to one of your uploaded files. Adding categories is not enough; the source from which the image is from and the licensing which we use it under must be supplied as well. Below is an explanation of how the template should be applied:

|attention=''This field is rarely used, and is usually meant to relay info to people viewing the image that there may be something wrong with the image, such as it not displaying properly, or if it needs to be renamed, or a new upload is desired.''
|description=''A brief description of the image.''
|source=''The source from which the image is from.''
|author=''If known, the specific artist who created the image.''
|filespecs=''Any alterations made to the image, such as increasing contrast, etc.''
|licensing=''The licensing which the image is released under. Usually, it will be {{Tl|Screenshot}} or {{Tl|Fairuse}}''
|other versions=''If the image is a crop or a larger version of an existing image, then list it here.''
|categories=''All applicable categories.''}}

Please begin formatting your uploads according to this template. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 09:10, January 31, 2011 (UTC)

You are still not adding information to the template. Please begin complying with the image policy, or face a cooldown block. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 03:06, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

Charmed Legacy Wiki

I was wondering if you want to help me with my wiki .... let's forget about what happened on the other wiki and start fresh. You can create any article you want and I won't bitch about it. But first of all, I just want to apologize for the way I treated you on the wiki, it was uncalled for. SORRY!!! The one preference I have is that for demons and evil beings the infobox color is the maroon red color and all members of the Halliwell family are the light purple color. I hope you decide to edit on the wiki! :) HalliwellManorAkaDsc385 18:57, March 6, 2011 (UTC)


Fanon? No. I was just adding the Dunamis incantation to the Opening Door because it seems to fit (: --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 16:02, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

With no canon source, it should not be on this wiki just because it seems to fit. -- Bee T. Are50px(Call me!!) 16:03, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

Voting issues

Voting is in progress for new infobox pics for Gellert Grindelwald and Fleur Delacour. There's only a couple days left before they both close, so be sure to weigh in for your favorite.

We're also WAY behind on some of our featured content, especially the QOTW's and DYK's, so if you've got a couple of minutes, drop in and voice your opinions on any you like or dislike, and maybe we can get some of the backlog cleared out.

Thanks. - Nick O'Demus 09:08, April 25, 2011 (UTC)


The images in question were not being used on the articles in question at the time of their deletion. Only Mrs Granger's was in use on your draft page. Under the image policy, duplicate images should not be uploaded, and only one version of any image should exist on the wiki. Better quality images should be uploaded over the existing images if the image is the same. In the case of changing format - from .jpg to .png - new images should be uploaded, replaced in all appropriate articles using the "what links here" link, and the original images tagged for deletion. Since that was not done, the images were deleted as they were duplicates, and were generally unused in favour of the original images. If you want them back, reupload them and apply the {{Information}} template, ensure that the .jpg images are replaced in their entirety, and tag the .jpg versions for deletion, which I will then take of. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 13:39, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Nordic National Quidditch team

Please do not use the image Scandinavia.jpg on the page Nordic National Quidditch team, as they did not win the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. On the game Quidditch World Cup you can get an image of every single team from the game winning the cup. Marktheseeker 20:11, June 2, 2011 (UTC)


I'm not sure if you're an admin here, but I noticed a wiki contributer vandalized the Buckbeak page.

Information template

While you are adding categories to the images you upload, you are still not filling out the {{Information}} template which is required by the image policy. Please begin filling this out, either at the point of upload or after so that your images comply with the image policy. Thank you for your cooperation. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:12, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

On the page Quidditch ball crate on which format (ps2, xbox etc.) did you obtain the the POA video game quote? Marktheseeker 14:48, July 1, 2011 (UTC)

Charmed Wiki

It is not immature, you do not even edit on that wiki anymore. Me and Andrew agreed, we want editor not complainers. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 12:58, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

No! I blocked you because you do not edit, all you do it is try and get your way. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 13:12, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

If you're unblocked, you are not changing anything! --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 17:20, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
Haha, and I am immature. Our management at the Charmed Wiki is fantastic and it is users like you who are bringing it down. It would be appreciated if you did not return. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 17:27, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
They will see that you did not edit when you returned to the wiki you just wanted articles to moved to your fitting. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 17:36, August 12, 2011 (UTC)
Can you please stop referring to me as Wiz. You have done good edits on the wiki, that was when you edited. The Angel of Death referrs to himself as the only Angel of Death. It has been grammatically proven. I'm not going to let you pull me through mud so you can do whatever you like. I do not single you out either, it just seems like you are the only one who wants things his own way. No other editor does. Good day to you, Butterfly. --KhanWiz - Guardian ~ (talk) ~ (email) Oasis-wordmark 18:37, August 12, 2011 (UTC)


You really have to do that, do you? I wonder if you can discuss something without bringing things up from the Charmed Wiki. Leave me alone. -- PerryPeverell 14:57, August 4, 2012 (UTC)

Lavender Brown's pictures

Lavender Brown has been depicted both in the books and in the movies as Caucasian - it's therefore hard to justify the insertion of a person of black descent in her page. MinorStoop 11:44, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

Well, Hunnie Bunn indicates there's some canonical support for your pictures. Still seems strange to me, but I have too many other things to do to hunt for it, so I'll retract my objections. Even though those two pictures contrast with Half-Blood Prince, feel free to reinstate them, if you think they're justified. MinorStoop 17:45, February 20, 2014 (UTC)

POA game characters

Hi Jack "BtR" Saxon,

I undid your addition of deletion templates to articles on students from the PS2 version of the Prisoner of Azkaban game. I understand that we get a lot of articles on fanon characters, and that the articles on the characters from the POA game for PS2 might look questionable at first glance, but I assure you that they're legitimate. The characters' names appear on the Marauder's Map in the game, but are difficult to read due to small font size. I was able to find a list of all the students' names by sticking the game disc in my computer's DVD-rom drive and searching through the resource files. If you have a copy of the game on hand, you can check it out for yourself. Cheers! - Starstuff (Owl me!) 03:49, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

The exceptions are the following recently-created articles: James Rivers, Ashley Steele, and Isabelle Cinderford. None of these appear in the list of students that can be found on the disc of the PS2 version of the POA game. I have deleted them, as they seem to be fanon inventions. - Starstuff (Owl me!) 03:58, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Why should the theory in the page Harry Potter and Me be removed?? I also think that it is wrong, but why did you delete it? GianG (talk) 19:57, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

Prove That My Fact Isn't True 

Ollivander's Daughter

RE: Ms Ollivander. There may be a bit of a problem which is not easy to deal with. We are not told how old Garrick's daughter was when she died - only that she is deceased. She could have been a child or an adult when she died. IF she was an adult, she may or may not have married prior to her death. Although it is possible for someone to marry and keep their maiden name - Minerva McGonagall did keep her maiden name - we cannot be certain that Ollivander's daughter's surname was Ollivander at the time of her death. We cannot be sure that it wasn't but we also can't be sure that it was. Makes wording the entry a bit tricky, doesn't it! (Vaudree (talk) 13:08, January 4, 2016 (UTC))

Disability and Language

Hello there, 

Just letting you know that the terms "wheelchair user" and "uses a wheelchair" are what are used by those who use wheelchairs. "Confined to a wheelchair/wheelchair bound" and "suffers from" are terms that are not used by the disability community, and are considered ableist by many of us. (The disability community)

Here's some resources on the matter, as written by wheelchair users and other disabled people. Also some by non-disabled language professors:
