Two generations

We only list two generations in each direction, which means the following

  • grandparents
  • parents
  • aunts/uncles
  • sibblings
  • children
  • nieces and nephews
  • grandchildren

Unless more distant relatives are the only ones known.

Because the infoboc wozld get to long.--Rodolphus (talk) 09:53, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

For many people, we would need to list the entire House of Black and other pure-blood families, as they can be cöearly defined through the family. That would simply be to much. So it was decided that only two generations into each direction should be listed. If you have another idea how we could handle it, you could propose a policy change on the forum.--Rodolphus (talk) 11:05, July 4, 2016 (UTC)

Continually moving the same page back and forth

Please stop continually moving the same page back and forth. I mean there's really no point, as it only clutters up the g-mails of users that have edited that page, and annoys them as well. Also users that stumble across that page will get confused and irritated when they see this. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 10:59, July 15, 2016 (UTC)

Moving pages without consensus

I strongly advise you to stop moving pages without a community consensus since it seems to bureaucratic. It's up to the community as a whole, or J.K. Rowling's word as law, to decide what the article should be known as. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:10, July 23, 2016 (UTC)

Honestly, you need to stop your meddling. Even if a consensus is reached, does not mean that you have to be the one to move the page. You should wait until it's clear that the majority of the community really is okay with having the page moved. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:26, July 23, 2016 (UTC)

Streamlining your signature

Do not streamline your signature on my talk page. It's unnecessary, as it only causes edit conflicts when I try to respond to your messages. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 03:38, July 23, 2016 (UTC)

Lily Potter

Per Forum:Revisting_policy_on_the_naming_of_articles we moved to using most recent name in canon, so it's Lily J Potter. Please do not rename all these articles to Evans! --Ironyak1 (talk) 06:27, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Lily Potter renaming

Hello,

it has already been previously discussed whether we use Lily Evans or Lily Potter, so it would be great if you could stop changing these articles,

Thanks,

This user has been warned countless times not to wreak havoc and make a mess on this wiki. And they have not listened. Not to mention they've already been blocked from editing this wiki in the past. And yet the first thing they did after their block expired was wreak more havoc, and doing more things that are in violation of the recent consensuses that have been reached. I myself have warned them against doing this sort of thing without general agreement, but they refused to listen. All they have done is argue and insist on hounding us with questions. In situations like this, they shouldn't be asking why things are done this way, they should just do. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:55, August 6, 2016 (UTC)
The thing you need to understand is that on this wiki you can't just do as you please. You've already been blocked once after all. What have you not learned from that? If I was blocked from editing this wiki, I would have learned from that on my first try. I would be a more cautious and wise user after returning from a block, and from what I've seen here, that block doesn't seem to have changed you a bit. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 08:05, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

Delphini Family

Please read HPW:CIFG#.22Family_members.22_field to understand what family is allowed in the infobox. Continuing to try and force these edits against stated policy tends to have negative consequences. There are far better edits to contribute! --Ironyak1 (talk) 09:41, August 7, 2016 (UTC)
