If you noticed my recent contributation to the page for the [[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film)]] that I want to split the differences between the book and the film to make it easier for people to navigate similar to the Goblet of Fire and Half Blood Prince pages. The earliest movies the Philosopher's Stone and Chamber of Secrets do not really need this since their sections are not quite as large. -[[User:Adv193|Adv193]] 03:46, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

== Re: Vandals ==
 
You're welcome; i'm happy to help. And here's a question: I've noticed that sometimes a new user will not know immediately what all the benefits of their account are. Example: if they aren't following a suggestion made on their talk page, it's likely because they don't know the talk page exists. So how do you tell a new user that they have a talk page?

== Question about individual infobox templates? ==
 
 
Well, I'm on a Harry Potter fanon site and I've tried to help out and see if I could create some infoboxes to help out certain users when they create their characters. But it turns out that I can't copy the right source code for the templates...when I try to copy and paste the one thats only allowed the found comes out too big and the source buttom at the bottom doesn't always come out linkable...is there any other way I could get it, please? Because I'd really love to help out on the site. I love Harry Potter. I'll even fully credit the site. [[User:JuniperAlien|JuniperAlien]] 12:15, April 24, 2011 (UTC
 
 
Okay the templates are the [http://harrypotterfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Template%3AWand_infobox2 wand] (Theres an error and the information won't fill out when being used) and the [http://harrypotterfanon.wikia.com/wiki/Template:Pet_individual_infobox pet individual] (Template turns out too large) Thank you so much.

Hi, Nick! I have a plead. Do you know how to make Templates? You have some wonderful templates here, but I miss one.

=="conjectural" article title guideline==
  +
Hi there, Nick O'Demus! (Let me know if it's okay for me to call you Nick?)
   
== Re: Rollback ==
+
I want to ask about the general criteria for naming"conjectural" articles; {{tl|conjecture}} seemed to be the only place for its definition, if it's included somewhere on [[HPW:POLICY]], I didn't find it.
   
I have considered asking, and there are a couple of reasons why i haven't asked yet. One is that during a reversion, i sometimes like to look through pages to find out if there are any gnoming improvements to be made. Another is simply that i don't believe i'm experienced enough yet. I've only been a particularly dedicated user here for two weeks.<br>
+
I wanted to ask because of the following 2 articles, and 5 more that are likely to come:
Also, I'd like some help uploading a picture for my user page. I can figure out the uploading itself, but the information that goes with it is over my head at this point. The picture can be found [[:Wikipedia:File:Knightni.jpg|here]] and I'd like it at the same file name (Knightni.jpg). [[User:The Knights Who Say Ni|The Knights Who Say Ni]] 21:24, May 2, 2011 (UTC)

*[[Unidentified 1985-1986 Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher]]
::And i have a higher tolerance than some users on this wiki before i will do a cold-blooded reversion. like, i can tell if it was meant to be disruptive, but i've seen some edits that i thought were reasonable that were reverted by someone else w/o any edit summary besides ''undid revision # by The French Taunter''. i usually prefer to write out a reason if it's not too obvious that it's meant to be disruptive. [[User:The Knights Who Say Ni|The Knights Who Say Ni]] 05:14, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
+
I've raised the question at [[Talk: Unidentified 1984-1985 Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher]], but I actually thought about updating my opinion, and since no one has responded it thus far, I figured I'd just share it straight with an admin.
   
== reason for blog deletion??? ==
+
I originally proposed "Defence Against the Dark Arts professor (1984–1985)" and "Defence Against the Dark Arts professer (1985–1986)" and so forth, but I realized, '''since those pages would most likely be reworded when being linked to''' (such as: <code><nowiki>[[Unidentified 1985-1986 Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher|Unnamed wizard]]</nowiki></code>,) '''do we really need a super long article title that's just going to be hidden away anyway?'''
   
hello!
+
I'm wondering if "'''DADA professor (1984–1985)'''" etc. would be acceptable. ''That'' is the shortest I can come up with, and since in opening sentence of the [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] article, it's stated to be "sometimes written as '''DADA'''," while looking less formal, being acronym and all, at least it's still canon?
   
ur userpic is so cool!!!
+
So yeah, really wanted to know if it's okay to rename the existing two articles and name the upcoming ones in shorter fashion. Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks! --[[User:Sammm鯊|<span style="color:#00008B;">S</span><span style="color:#3333A2;">a</span><span style="color:#6666B9;">m</span><span style="color:#9999D1;">m</span><span style="color:#CCCCE8;">m</span><span style="color:#000038;">✦✧</span>]]([[User talk:Sammm鯊|talk]]) 23:09, May 26, 2018 (UTC)
   
i was just wondering if there was any specific reason for deleting my blog? i saw that it was offtopic, but it was a fanfiction blog. And I don't understand why it is offtopic, since it is containing details and thoughts from the Final Battle. If there is anything i can do to fix it, please feel free to let me know!

==Roman numeral suffixes==
   
I am Carlisle's Princess 14:50, May 4, 2011 (UTC)
+
Hello, I noticed that some page names ([[James Potter I]], [[James Potter II]]) have Roman numeral suffixes, although these are used incorrectly. As James Potter (Harry's father) and James Potter (Harry's son) have different full names, it's incorrect for them to have suffixes. [[User:Donut4|<b><font face="Arial" size="4" color="Black">Donut4</font></b>]] | [[User talk:Donut4|<b><font face="Arial" size="4" color="Grey">Talk page</font></b>]] 16:18, June 10, 2018 (UTC)
  +
:I don't know what makes this usage "incorrect" in real-world terms (for a start, bearers of suffixes don't need to have the ''exact'' same name down to middle names; King Henry VI of England was Henry Lancaster, but King Henry VII of England was Henry Tudor), but in terms of this wiki, suffixes are used to distinguish bearers of almost-identical names from one another. In this specific case it is not possible to use "James [middle initial] Potter" and "James S. Potter", because the first James has no known middle initial. — [[User:Evilquoll|evilquoll]] ([[User_talk:Evilquoll|talk]]) 18:36, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

Hey, Nick O' Demus. It's me, SnapeFan1 again. I saw that a wikia contributer has made [http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Mad_eye_moody this page] on the wikia not too long ago and thought I should tell you.

sir plz see to it that i have correctly edited the [[Potter cottage]] page
 
   
== Re: Warning templates ==
+
Hello Nick O'Demus,
   
i know about the templates (not all of them; thanks for telling me about the remaining ones), but i generally don't use them b/c they are too cold-blooded for my taste. that's why i wrote out the fanstuff notice for that user. Besides, as far as i know, there is a fine line between "Stuff JKR has told us that i don't know about" and "Fanon". is it considered good practice on this wiki to assume good faith? it is on another wiki that i'm active on. [[User:The Knights Who Say Ni|The Knights Who Say Ni]] 05:14, May 10, 2011 (UTC)
+
I am currently doing a study on the challenges fantasy fans face in finding the next fantasy franchise they would like to get into and where to get access to that content.
   
==Rich Text Editor==
+
Given your role as an admin for the Harry Potter wiki, I would be keen to interview you to get your thought on this. What would be the best way to do this and would you have some availability to connect on this over the coming weeks?
   
A couple days ago, [[User:Samreen Singh|Samreen Singh]] was asking for help on how to keep a name from being removed in an infobox. I could tell that the reason he was having trouble was because "Enable Rich Text Editor" was checked in his preferences, and i discouraged switching to the text-based editor. i have noticed that editing option causing a fair amount of small trouble across the wiki (like, pictures in the middle of paragraphs). Actually, tbh, this whole talk section is no more than an educated guess. I didn't even know the wiki could be edited that way until about a week ago, and then i realized that editing it that way made for a much more sensible explanation of why this small trouble is popping up than ppl randomly putting pictures in the middle of paragraphs. I didn't know how to help him b/c i don't have that option checked in my preferences. Do you, and if not, do you know who could help him in that respect? [[User:The Knights Who Say Ni|The Knights Who Say Ni]] 05:14, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Best,
   
hi nick, there is an issue on the talk page regarding Johnpaul castrianni, (sorry I am not used to wiki so didnt realise it wasnt as simple as just cutting) I am the person in question and it has been given to my attention that there is problomatic and offensive slander regarding myself by a user that is stating I am commiting fraud. I have appropriate documents to back up my claim as Lord of Kensington and the user submitted that I am nothing more than fraud which could potentially be harmful to me.
 
   
   
   
I am asking please if that talk comment could Please be removed asap.

Hi wand is the template for the user wandGumballswag (talk) 18:02, May 12, 2018 (UTC)

Hey :D

I have a Question. How exactly should I do the NoahMeh (talk) 12:53, May 15, 2018 (UTC) thing. I tried it but it didn't work :(. Thanks in advance :)

You just have to type "~~~~" (without the quotes, and without any spurious markup, such as a nowiki container, around them). — evilquoll (talk) 18:25, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

"conjectural" article title guidelineEdit

Hi there, Nick O'Demus! (Let me know if it's okay for me to call you Nick?)

I want to ask about the general criteria for naming"conjectural" articles; {{conjecture}} seemed to be the only place for its definition, if it's included somewhere on HPW:POLICY, I didn't find it.

I wanted to ask because of the following 2 articles, and 5 more that are likely to come:

I've raised the question at Talk: Unidentified 1984-1985 Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, but I actually thought about updating my opinion, and since no one has responded it thus far, I figured I'd just share it straight with an admin.

I originally proposed "Defence Against the Dark Arts professor (1984–1985)" and "Defence Against the Dark Arts professer (1985–1986)" and so forth, but I realized, since those pages would most likely be reworded when being linked to (such as: [[Unidentified 1985-1986 Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher|Unnamed wizard]],) do we really need a super long article title that's just going to be hidden away anyway?

I'm wondering if "DADA professor (1984–1985)" etc. would be acceptable. That is the shortest I can come up with, and since in opening sentence of the Defence Against the Dark Arts article, it's stated to be "sometimes written as DADA," while looking less formal, being acronym and all, at least it's still canon?

So yeah, really wanted to know if it's okay to rename the existing two articles and name the upcoming ones in shorter fashion. Hope to hear from you soon! Thanks! --Sammm✦✧(talk) 23:09, May 26, 2018 (UTC)

Roman numeral suffixesEdit

Hello, I noticed that some page names (James Potter I, James Potter II) have Roman numeral suffixes, although these are used incorrectly. As James Potter (Harry's father) and James Potter (Harry's son) have different full names, it's incorrect for them to have suffixes. Donut4 | Talk page 16:18, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

I don't know what makes this usage "incorrect" in real-world terms (for a start, bearers of suffixes don't need to have the exact same name down to middle names; King Henry VI of England was Henry Lancaster, but King Henry VII of England was Henry Tudor), but in terms of this wiki, suffixes are used to distinguish bearers of almost-identical names from one another. In this specific case it is not possible to use "James [middle initial] Potter" and "James S. Potter", because the first James has no known middle initial. — evilquoll (talk) 18:36, June 10, 2018 (UTC)

Removing page/image Edit

HI. We've had a message from Marcus Noble asking for the page and image removed from the wiki, as he ended up not being shown on camera in the movie. I've no reason to think this isn't the real actor, so I'll remove the page/image.  Thanks -- Sannse @fandom (help forum | blog) 18:11, October 4, 2018 (UTC)

How to find new fantasy franchises to get into Edit

Hello Nick O'Demus,

I am currently doing a study on the challenges fantasy fans face in finding the next fantasy franchise they would like to get into and where to get access to that content.

Given your role as an admin for the Harry Potter wiki, I would be keen to interview you to get your thought on this. What would be the best way to do this and would you have some availability to connect on this over the coming weeks?

Best,
