Claims needing verification, TMR's Horcrux research

Hi, there, Kate! Hope all is well! Because you seem to have a great eye for "things not quite right" (I still can't believe the whole Spellotape thing went undiscussed for so long lol), I figured I'd throw this out as well. Comparing to GOF and OOTP, I'm relatively less familiar with HBP and DH, but unfortunately I currently am not in a position to indulge in things (not sure if it's a Buddhist custom or a general curtesy for people having deaths in their family), anyhow, in both articles Hogwarts Library and Restricted Section, there's the somewhat meaty paragraph about TMR gaining his info via researching the Restricted Section. I've used text-search and the only time "restricted" appeared in HBP was when Hermione mentioned it. So I'm just like, was everything just assumption etc. (and therefore should be removed?). Just thought another opinion of the matter would be helpful. =D --Sammm✦✧(talk) 05:40, April 7, 2019 (UTC)

Thanks so much for the help! It's super odd because when I text-search "restric" (not even completing the word) in my 2012 UK DH epub, there's no result, so I have not (re)viewed Hermione's statement. I honestly thought the whole thing was speculation because the few times I glanced at the convo between TMR and Sluggy, I just didn't get what the paragraphs were claiming, so it's really good to know that it didn't come from nowhere. I'm glad I asked because on a bad day I might have considered removing them entirely (or at most relocating and heavily edited to be at BTS section instead) since the text-search was not picking up a critical factor. This reminded me how incredulous I had been when I at one point saw the phrasing of TMR's reasoning of using the Lestrange Vault for Hufflepuff's Cup; I thought it was completely elitism and somewhat rude, but it turns out there was basis of why it was worded that way, only, it was Harry's speculation on the matter, not like, an actual fact. I guess some people really do take Harry's opinion super serious. lol
Thanks again for the input! Since the text-search for me isn't enabling me to narrow down and view all related statements, if I do work on it, it likely won't be anytime soon. (I feel super weird for saying this, but I think it'll also be a little awkward that after the acknowledgment, I made no move to edit, so just letting you know why lol. And obviously, anyone who's up to tackling it would be appreciated. I'm pretty awful at wording things. xP) --Sammm✦✧(talk) 12:10, April 7, 2019 (UTC)
Sorry for bringing this back; I did actually mean to followup this topic but just didn't have time to do so (well, until I saw it got moved to the archive lol. Felt like better late than never.) I've seen the modification you made on the subject matter, and would like to know your thoughts on still relocating them to BTS? Since it's only a possibility, it feels like it shouldn't be under the "History" section as technically it's only theorized that "it could have happened", and not "this is what happened," if that makes any sense. The one similar issue I can think of off the top of my head is Orchideous, where the last 2 bulletpoints in BTS used to be included in the main article, but were relocated due to "not 100% sure it's actually the case". --Sammm✦✧(talk) 06:35, May 11, 2019 (UTC)

Rionach O'Neal's POA scene confirmation

Sup Kate! Just dropping by to let you know (with the bunch of WU info, it can be overlooked) that Marianne Chase confirmed via Twitter that the Chaser in POA was indeed played by her (source provided in the Talk page, figured if continuing the discussion, it'd be best stay there xP); unsure, but it seems like that'd make Rionach's POA film appearance non-canon. (Only POA; the rest should be fine?)

--Sammm✦✧(talk) 09:09, April 30, 2019 (UTC)

Have replied to the respective Talk page. TBH, I didn't actually think the actress would respond lmao; it's nice that she did! --Sammm✦✧(talk) 06:35, May 11, 2019 (UTC)
Wow, after all those months, I'm still onto this lmao. So, this time not in POA but in DH1; I was actually trying to get a better screenshot for another character, ended up taking a look at all crowds scenes in DH2, didn't find enough of what I want, so thought might as well check out DH1 while I was at it. I think I may have found Marianne Chase (assuming she's playing Rionach?) in the Hogwarts Express confrontation scene, though quite blurry, here: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7]; she looks like she could be the one next to the blonde. This is just me thinking said girl (due to angle towards the camera) happened to look similar to Chase's photos on her Spotlight profile. There's a similar image for some of the latter screenshots on HPW at File:Neville on Hogwarts Express.jpg but less clear. Figured I'm not going to jump to conclusion and ask for a second opinion lol.
--Sammm✦✧(talk) 08:22, December 4, 2019 (UTC)
I mean, if wanting to be 100% sure, you can always try Tweeting Chase and see if she'd confirm it lol. IDK, I feel that considering no one acted on to investigate the shadiness of the article's previous content, likely this isn't something people would fuss over? I'm fine with both ways though I'm more up for just adding it to the main article if asking the actress and not getting a reply for a year or something lmao.
Oh, btw, compiled Talk:Rionach O'Neal#A recap on how this article became so messed up when recovering deleted edit history. I feel bad for what happened because the pages could have been made for someone else entirely. Also recovered Talk:Rionach O'Neal#She isn't a recast of Fay Dunbar and interested to know your thoughts on the matter. I don't particularly think Chase looks like anyone in the image, but that could be an angle issue. Also couldn't find that scene on the screenshot site (or just missed seeing it) and couldn't see other frames for comparison. --Sammm✦✧(talk) 00:36, December 5, 2019 (UTC)

RE Short links

Hi there - I think Category:Appearance templates has examples of all the short links available, and clicking on each, such as Template:QTA should provide examples of the options for each (such as {{QTA|R|F}} = Quidditch Through the Ages, Foreword by Albus Dumbledore.

Hi, I'm sorry about putting "co-" the thing is that's another way to call somebody's spouse's sibling's spouse (User:Matipereira)

Invisibility cloak

Nice work on the invisibility cloak. If I could give you a biscuit, I would.

More input

Sup Kate! =D Curious about your thoughts regarding to Talk:Crystal Stewart! Like, I'm seriously not trusting any deductions happening on HPW lol --Sammm✦✧(talk) 19:13, May 16, 2019 (UTC)

This actually has more to do with User talk:Kates39/Archive1#The girl who helped Ron but I figured instead of creating a new section, this actually still falls under needing "more input," so lol. While I was gone, a user created Cho Chang's posse... Would like your opinion on the title... Do people describe other people like that? The word "posse" unfortunately is something IDK how to use and am unsure if that's just me being super ill-informed. Is it more fitting than "Cho Chang's friends"?
Also, previously... I was for some reason pretty sure the light skinned girl next to Cho is the same as the one unsmiling on the right, but now, only a few months later, I'm no longer certain... Your thoughts? I'm asking this because I was also previously confident that I located the actress, but I dunno what happened because now I'm just like... they don't look that much alike... o__O Serves to show how unreliable my judgments are, apparently lol.
Thoughts on Talk:Susan Bones#Film appearance(s) would be appreciated as well. =D
--Sammm✦✧(talk) 04:20, December 6, 2019 (UTC)
Awwww, thank you for your kind words! I hope what I'm about to share can live up to the praise. (If not, owells lol. I'll comfort myself by knowing I'm probably not the worst on this wiki when it comes to crediting actors lmao.) The actress I previously thought I recognized was Sarah Harrison, especially for the first screenshot I linked; however, that judgement was solely based on that one infobox image, which does seem legit and professionally taken, but IDK if it's the wonder of makeup or maturity, when trying to look up more images of this entertainer, (I used this term because she appears to be more active in music related fields?) the similarities look a lot less to me. =/ --Sammm✦✧(talk) 02:27, December 9, 2019 (UTC)
I know... Lighting and angles can be so deceiving o__O. I didn't realize the skin complexion seems quite different. I saw the similarity mainly from the drooping eyes, high cheekbone, and prominent jaw, which, to me, reflects on the infobox image used for Harrison, and it's so weird that I don't think her other images highlight those features at all lmao. I'm not going to search for the actress though. Previously I just thought "jackpot" after viewing the batch of actresses, and if Harrison was the one that stood out to me, I doubt I'll find someone else unless new images of actresses are uploaded. For Cho's other friends, I know one is Anna McGarahan, and I believe some other can be identified in file:Ravenclaw winter.jpg (see "Other versions";) I've glimpsed some but didn't memorize it because back then there wasn't a page for it. (I'm just saying this because there's always the chance that the girl we were talking about is just an extra and isn't credited anywhere hence could not be found regardless of how hard we try to.)
Saw the reply for Susan. There's nothing else I could add because my stance is pretty much written, just waiting for other input. If no one joins the convo in like a month, I'll probably take it as a sign for okay to proceed since there's at least you who agreed to making adjustments. =D

Thank you

Thank you very much for your lovely message. I am so glad this repulsive behaviour has stopped and I agree, it is still repulsive to see the images appear on the adverts on other pages. Luckily, these will soon vanish and the ordinary images will start appearing again. I despise any attempts to destroy or undermine the cleanliness of this amazing wiki. You too, are doing a superb job with maintaining this wiki. It is warming to know your work is appreciated by others and to have friends on this Wiki. Enjoy the rest of your day and happy editing. RedWizard98 (talk) 20:29, May 16, 2019 (UTC) 

Cheers for the nice feedback Kate. RedWizard98 (talk) 09:49, May 17, 2019 (UTC)

Just to let you know Kate, as I sure you very well do, I am not "RedWizard92". This is a sock puppet account of that pervert we dealt with last night. Some people are very unintelligent, miserable losers with nothing better to do in their lives but cause problems for clever people, like ourselves. Happy editing and keep fighting vandalism. RedWizard98 (talk) 12:07, May 17, 2019 (UTC)

Hello Kate, thank you for your friendly response. It is very alarming that someone has had the unfiltered right to vandalise our wiki for so long, without any administrator attention, I think it is rather lazy on their part, to supposedly uphold community rules and regulations, yet are nowhere to be seen. Sometime, I think I would like to myself apply for administration rights, so I can help enforce community rules, and block vandals when other admins do not notice them. Hopefully, this appalling situation will be done and dusted soon, and I know Fandom central will soon get things sorted, so, just remember, "Constant Vigilance!"RedWizard98 (talk) 16:15, May 17, 2019 (UTC)

Good work Kate, for stopping the same brain dead, low-life scumbag who keeps on trying to vandalise articles. Clearly, by copying my username, he is evidently jealous of my style and reputation, and probably even my profile picture. Just keep up with the great work, and hopefully, this utterly unintelligent crap will end soon. You are a true editor and HP fan, happy editing. RedWizard98 (talk) 20:23, May 18, 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I found some new pieces to the puzzle that is HP Wizards Unite, and tried to put them together on the game's talk page. Of course, I'm waiting for a staff to make a decision as to whether the source is valid, I only wanted to hear what your thoughts were? Maester Martin (talk) 13:26, May 18, 2019 (UTC)


Hi Kates39; the wordmark was created using photoshop. Lettering was taken from a Fantastic Beasts font and the scrollwork was cut from promotional posters, scaled down in size and then manually placed. - Cavalier OneGryffindorcrest(Wizarding Wireless Network) 10:51, June 3, 2019 (UTC)

Order of Merlin

Merlin Gold Order of Merlin (First Class)
The Order of Merlin is awarded to you by {{{1}}} for having over three-thousand edits on the Harry Potter Wiki.
- I think this reward is long deserved. Well done Kate.

My pleasure, we need more people like you active on this wikia. RedWizard98 (talk) 20:12, August 20, 2019 (UTC)

Dark Lord

Nice edit!

So, I made a mistake. The only time I remember Grindelwald being called "Dark Lord" is here on FANDOM - "following his defeat at Dumbledore's hands and subsequent arrest, the inmates of Nurmengard were released at the ex-Dark Lord's behest". My bad.

Also, congrats on earning your 1st Class Order of Merlin! --SWLover2 (talk) 01:17, October 9, 2019 (UTC)

Dark Lord (2)

All good! --SWLover2 (talk) 18:01, October 9, 2019 (UTC)

RE Mafalda

Sorry for the delay, but have made a reply on Talk:Mafalda#Blood status. The issue you raised is on point (as always ;) Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 04:58, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

Katherine of Aragon

Hello Kate39, I saw your message about the above article I understood exactly your point. The reason I deleted it was that its creator has uploaded lots of fanon onto this wiki and has even been blocked for it, which I think shows disrespect towards our rules. If you want to clean up the article I've put up for deletion and remove the tag, that sounds great, but my only concern is whether or not she has any appearance or mention in a HP source (if you can do it, that would be brilliant). Kind regards and stay safe, --RedWizard98 (talk) 13:48, May 29, 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the good feedback, and good luck with your Harry Potter Tudor research. --RedWizard98 (talk) 14:10, May 29, 2020 (UTC)

Hi again, I also couldn't find any canon reference of her, so she definitely does not fit notability standards. The articles has been deleted anyway, but good work for researching anyway.--RedWizard98 (talk) 13:33, May 30, 2020 (UTC)
