Hi. Could you please delete the page Hunter Mariner? The person who created the page continues to remove the {{Delete}} I put on the page. It's all just a link to a YouTube video. Thanks. Texthawm Broadcast2 19:23, September 4, 2011 (UTC)


I've been trying to get the template for images to work, but I'm having issues. Can you help me figure out how to upload an image? Sev Lover Forever 19:26, September 4, 2011 (UTC)


Glad to know your e-mail finally arrived! What day did you sign up on? Starstuff (Owl me!) 20:13, September 4, 2011 (UTC)

It must be that site access is being rolled out partially based on when people signed up. Care to share your username so that I can friend you? :) Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:29, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
CastleQueenXX. Just sent you a friend request. It should appear on the recent message page, which can be accessed by clicking the owl perched on top of "Spells."
Don't bother trying to load the test in favour of Slytherin. Just answer the questions as you would naturally and enjoy the site. :) Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:45, September 4, 2011 (UTC)
Kind of figured that's where you were going to end up. What questions did you get? Starstuff (Owl me!) 00:10, September 5, 2011 (UTC)
The questions I got were all rather abstract, and thus I couldn't skew my answers in favour of Slytherin. I suppose it's true what they said: it's impossible to outsmart a test written by JKR herself. Starstuff (Owl me!) 00:29, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Please Help Me

Hi, I am new to the Wiki and there is a lot of stuff I try to do but can't figure out how to.

It seems like you know this really well, so could you explain how to add userboxes and (I don't know what this is called) the large box where birth date, blood status, family members, and all that stuff is?

Also, how do you put on a picture?

Please help, I'm clueless here.

chat mods

Hey, I heard we didn't have any chat mods assigned, and admins aren't on chat much, I have been some and would like to suggest making User:Speedysnitch a chat mod, they are in fairly frequently during the week and a lot on the weekend, and have 600 edits and seem fairly mature. Wasn't sure if that was something I should just go ahead and assign or how we'd go about dealing with chat mods.--BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 21:03, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

in general

Yea in general I wasn't sure how we were dealing with chat mods, I had to kick ban someone today when I happened to be on, for swearing and yelling. --BachLynn(Send an Owl!) 23:50, September 7, 2011 (UTC)

Voldemort's Name

True but who's to say that Tom wasn't short for Thomas and Tom was a nickname that he used (prior to assuming the guise of Lord Voldemort). True, he didn't like a common name (which is why he chose Voldemort) but he still needed a name and didn't feel any reason prior to the age of 16 to change his name, despite finding it common and mundane.

Jdogno7 13:24, September 8, 2011 (UTC)

Edit Warring

It is not meant to be an edit war. I am merely undoing your edits as it is less time consuming than replacing the nickname Tom with the full name Thomas at the relevant points. You haven't answered my question. Is there anything that is INCONTREVERTIBLE, UNCONTRADICTABLE or ABSOLUTE that Tom isn't his full name but a nickname and Thomas is his full birth first name?

As I previously pointed out, Voldemort may have only used "Tom Marvolo Riddle" as it made the perfectly neat anagram of "I am Lord Voldemort", which he couldn't have done with Thomas, as he would have the word "has" or "ash" (two most likely real words you could make with those three letters alone) or just the three letters, h, a and s left over.

As I have come to understand, after asking people who have lost loved ones, it is unecessary for one to put the complete or full name of anyone on a gravestone, or even a name at all. If "grandpa" Riddle was burried under the name Thomas, it was most likely that he either wanted to be burried under that name or simply the name, he was best known by. Same for "Tom Riddle Sr."/Thomas "Tom" Riddle II, he was burried as simply Tom Riddle, because that was the name he was best known by, to others.

The only reason, he wasn't burried as Thomas Riddle II/Tom Riddle II was because no one in Little Hangelton, including Thomas Riddle II, knew that there was a Thomas Riddle III until the day the Riddles were killed. That would have been the first meeting between son and father, grandson and paternal grandparents.

The orphanage would have most likely had to legally register its wards, so it woudl have been on Muggle legal records that Voldemort was born Thomas Marvolo Riddle/Tom Marvolo Riddle, but not necessarily that that he was the son of Thomas Riddle II/Tom Riddle II of Little Hangleton and certainly not Merope Gaunt as she would never have existed according to Muggle legal records as well as Marvolo Gaunt.

Just wondering, did you delete a page called The Original Forty? You marked it as redundant and unnecessary information but it's from one of JKR's first notebooks... just wondering because I published it and left the page for a second then refreshed and said you'd deleted it.

Potions on Pottermore

Tried brewing for the first time on Pottermore, and it's been nothing but frustration. I've already wasted like 40 galleons on ingredients and a new cauldron after I blew my first one up. You've already earned 120 points, and I'm seriously wondering how. Maybe I ought to stop before I blow through more Galleons and lose us more points. :) Starstuff (Owl me!) 05:02, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

Death Eater in HP4 film???

Hi Seth, I need again your help about something. On the french Wikia, someone created today a page about a Death Eater exclusive to the Goblet of Fire film fr:Calahan and after a little search, I can view that there's a mention on the french Wikipedia and I don't find any page on this wiki. I have seen several times the scene in the cemetary this evening (in english and in french): they think that it's a name that is pronounced between Crabbe and Macnair but for my part I'm not sure, do you know if this problem was discussed here in the past and/or what do you think about this?

A few times ago, I left a question about Dudley's gang (in archive 14) but I had no answer: do you know someone who can help me about this?

I have created 3 exclusive pages about the french version on the french wikia last week (mentionned in the Quidditch through the ages). When I will have more time, I will create them here too but I will need your help about this, as usual. See you soon. --   Famini    talk    contribs   19:26, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Seth, Thank you for your answer. I had the same feeling about this fake Death Eater but I wanted to talk to someone, which is not easy because I am currently the only active administrator on the French wiki. I had fixed this morning the french pages about Dudley's gang and I'll try to be aware about further changes here. And yes, it was these french pages, I hesitated, I did not know whether to translate "Académie française des sorciers". For your information, I give you the whole french text :

"Glossaire à l'usage des apprentis sorciers
Le Quidditch est né en Grande-Bretagne et le vocabulaire qui s'y rattache est bien entendu anglais. Pendant des siècles, l'usage de ces termes anglais a prévalu sur tous les terrains d'Europe. Cependant, depuis la fondation, en 1635, de l'Académie française des sorciers, une commission d'experts présidée par deux éminents académiciens, Boniface Toubeau et Archibald Bienbon, a créé des équivalents français à l'usage des équipes - et des supporters - de notre pays. Nous publions ci-dessous un glossaire anglais-français des principaux termes employés." "Les balais cités dans cet ouvrage ne sont pas toujours commercialisés sous le même nom en Grande-Bretagne et en France. Voici les équivalents de marque qui permettront aux lecteurs de s'y retrouver s'ils souhaitent faire l'achat d'un balai." "Un dernier conseil : si vous vous rendez prochainement en Grande-Bretagne, n'oubliez pas d'emporter ce glossaire, il pourra peut-être se révéler utile si vous rencontrez quelques sorciers locaux..." and the list of terms, but when there's a page on the french wiki, we add a interlink here.

Another question... Is there a page here where I can find the whole text on Chocolate Frog Cards in games? I explain my problem. In the french version (PC), for Hengist of Woodcroft, it says: "(Moyen Âge, dates inconnues. Persécuté par les Moldus, Hengist aurait fui pour se réfugier en Écosse, fondant le village de Pré-au-Lard." and I have found this on the net: blog page there's a mention to the Three Broomsticks (les Trois Balais) that is missing in the french version, so I would compare both versions for other wizards. I have recorded the french versions fr:Folio Magi here, my husband hasn't finished the game yet (I've bought it in a fleamarket last year / last week I've bought several Harry Potter items, some posters, a electronic book, some trading cards and a frame. I normally search... old fashion dolls, nothing to do with Harry Potter) --   Famini    talk    contribs   13:27, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Why did you delete my blog page?? I only wrote about what I was doing recently.... There´s nothing wrong there.....

SETHH! Why did you delete my page? It was the only file I saved with my year 1 fanfic info! WAAAAAA :(

Thank you SO MUCH for reposting it! I have saved it on my computer and sorry for that I 1. didn't know and 2. it was the only thing that was working because the internet had stopped and it was the only page up (and micorosoft word had been acidentally uninstalled so i had to install it again)

Horrible English

Hey, Seth. Sorry for my horrible English on the pages Académie française des sorciers, Boniface Toubeau and Archibald Bienbon. I'm from Denmark and had to use Google Translate to translate the French. So actually it's the Translator's fault, and not mine. --Danniesen

Rowena Ravenclaw


Please edit out the third point on Rowena Ravenclaws in the behind the sceens section, because it was rather insulting. This is the point:

  • Despite being a house that values intelligence, the house has its quota of female beauties (Rowena and Helena Ravenclaw, Cho Chang, Padma Patil, Luna Lovegood), and even Fleur Delacour, who decided to sit at the Ravenclaw table while staying in Hogwarts. Male Ravenclaws such as Roger Davies have also been described as good looking. Even Filius Flitwick, Ravenclaw's head of house in the 1990s, was described as good-looking in his younger days. Ravenclaw's effigies also depict a beautiful albeit intimidating-looking woman

According to what is written, if you are beautiful and in Ravenclaw that is rather surprising! It is helping propetuate the belief that if you are beautiful (or handsome) you must not be very smart.

Plus the page is about Rowena Ravenclaw not about the students in her house. None of the other pages of the founders have listed a list of it's members during Harry's year.

Thanks DebMannd1068 23:06, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

What Constitutes a Stub?

I was curious because I noticed a number of articles that were marked as stubs, but I'm not realy sure why. I was under the impression that articles generally are supposed to be marked as stubs if there is significant content regarding the subject that still needs to be added and not necessarily simply because they are small in size. For example, Poisonous duck is marked as a stub, but what else can be said about that subject (unless a discussion of the characteristics of ducks in general is desired)? It is only given the barest of mentions in one book. There are a number of creatures like this that are marked as stubs, such as the Gulping Plimpy, to give another example. ProfessorTofty 03:11, September 25, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification. Based on that, I will probably be removing the stub tag from a number of articles, possibly doing some minor fix-up or adding if there is anything that can be improved without indulging in speculation or canon-violation. ProfessorTofty 19:58, September 26, 2011 (UTC)

Zacharias Smith

There's a problem with Smith's page. Could you check it please? It's explained on the talk page. Rodolphus shows a problem with the year (I'm agree with him...) and me too: there's a pic of the battle of Hogwarts that is added and people said it's Smith, but there's no evidence that it's him at all. Thank you. --   Famini    talk    contribs   11:32, September 25, 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for deleting that second photo for me. I would have done it myself but I didn't know how. Thanks again.

Robert Ripley

Hi Seth. Just thought I'd let you know that Dannisen is now logging out in order to remove the "deletion" tag from the Robert Ripley article, using an IP address nearly identical to the one he used to argue against his previous block. He seems to think that he's the invisible man:) Jayden Matthews 14:35, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

Streeler and Giant orange snail

The page of the streeler has a picture with a Chocofrog, but I think that this Chocofrog is not depicted as a Streeler: it's a (in french a "escargot orange, I believe it's in english "poisonous orange snail") so as the wiki have two pages, one for Streeler and one for Orange snail (which doesn't seem to be able to change color, because of their name and their appearance in the games), I think that the pic should be move, but maybe I'm wrong because I played only with the french version of the game. In Harry Potter Trading Card Game, there's a picture of a streeler, no doubt, here it's written streeler on the card, so it's possible to change the pic. --   Famini    talk    contribs   17:02, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

RE:Equus poster

Hi Seth. It's a scan of an actual copy of the poster. You can tell it's the same issue as the one in the cafe becasue of the slightly sepia colouration, not found in later editions. The poster is advertising the premier of the revival in Shaftesbury Ave. To be honest, I would have tagged those articles even if the posted wasn't dated 2007. Jayden Matthews 11:48, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

I think the one in the cafe is a leaflet or program, rather than a full poster. But still, those articles Dannisen created would be unnecessary in any case. Jayden Matthews 10:33, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Stubs, Part Two

While looking over the list of book stubs, I noticed a number of articles based solely on books that were briefly featured at J.K. Rowling's Official Site - David Copperfield, Pride and Prejudice. I'm not really sure of the point of having articles based solely on books briefly given a mention at the website that actually have any association with the Harry Potter series - it sort of reminds me of the recent debates regarding the Robert Ripley and other such articles. However, assuming we are keeping these articles, what would be the best way to clear them out of stub status? I was thinking maybe a brief line or two describing the plot of each one, along with a link to Wikipedia's entry for them. Perhaps also their own category and a template indicating in some way that they're here because they were mentioned at the official website, but we're not interested in hosting more detailed articles on them. ProfessorTofty 19:03, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, sounds good. I'll go ahead with that, then, and we can get those "stub" tags cleared off of some more pages. ProfessorTofty 21:57, October 2, 2011 (UTC)


Please help! On the Harry Potter (film series) page, under the Harry Potter home videos section, the formatting for the box sets is mixed up. I have no idea how it happened, but it's really messed up. Sev Lover Forever 00:10, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Combatant/ally list is adding a lot of combatants/allies and number of combatants/allies to articles. I'm not sure about a lot of these additions, especially the numbers. Are they really necessary and where is the information coming from? A lot of the additions are along the lines of "Unknown werewolf commander". I'm not sure what to do with these edits, leave them alone or undo them. Thanks -Shorty1982 20:01, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Reply from Night Owl 87

Hello Seth, and thanks for the welcome! :) All I was attempting was a minor edit, where it listed Albus Dumbledore having died in June of 1998 instead of 1997 (which of course, due to Snape's own death the following year was impossible). I thought I had checked the "Minor edit" box; but maybe it got unselected while I was checking the Help and Preview pages. There was already some information in the "Edit Summary" box; and I wasn't sure if I was supposed to delete that, or just add my own notation(s) on to the end. I know some HTML code; but it has been a long time since I last used it, so I didn't want to risk messing up anything. Hope I didn't occasion any confusion, as I am completely new to this.

Edit problem

Hi, Seth! I have since a few days a problem when I edit / create a new talk page of an article. After I left my message, I got stuck on the side. I do not get out anymore. What's going on? What am I doing wrong? Harry granger 20:52, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

Need some possible help

I have decided that until the DVD comes out or if a valid source is found then the deleted scenes section on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 needs to stay out due to speculation. While I recently took care of this, if it continues to be a hassle or if you find it necessary could you semi-lock the page until November 11th. Just trying to cut down on potential bad edits. -Adv193 00:08, October 16, 2011 (UTC)

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Hey Seth. I'm travelling from Denmark to England at December 16. and i just wondered if you know exactly where in England The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located. --Danniesen October 18 2011, 20:34

Apparently Warner Brothers is building a park by that name near London. I didn't know anything about it until I Googled it. The article I found just says it'll open in 2012, no specific date. -Shorty1982 18:57, October 18, 2011 (UTC)

Userboxes and anon users

Are anon users allowed to have userboxes on their user pages? 17:03, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Seth! This user has used my user name to sign his comment on the page Talk:Unidentified Death Eater who fought in a First Floor Corridor (II). I put the unsigned tag with his user ID on the page and wrote him to not do that. But I thought it would be better an admin knowing of that behaviour because it is a red link and perhaps an account for more than one, especially anon users. Harry granger 13:05, October 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the message you sent me. I completly understand about editing, and I will be more careful.

Edits to Severus Snape

Not sure if it's strictly against policy, but User:LeocadiaBegbick keeps making numerous changes to the article for Severus Snape, around 200 within the past month, from what I can tell. Most of these edits seem to be simple rejiggering of words and phrases, rather than anything particularly substantive. What's more, many of these edits are often made within minutes of each other, sometimes to the exact same section as one or more of the previous edits. ProfessorTofty 04:24, October 26, 2011 (UTC)

Major Problem

Weblykinly at Nickipedia has gone mad with power. She's uploading images that she had no legal permission to upload just for her little "project". She claims her images are good without citing sources. She thinks just because she's a administrator she can do a project on her own without permission from any of her colleagues. She then blocked me indefinitely for fake reasons when I confronted her about her powere abuse. Something must be done. She is still stubborn that I used sockpuppets. She wasn't letting me disagree with her, forcing me to conform. Please help. Something must be done about her.--Jack's Posse Fic 20:04, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hi Seth,

Wanted to give you a heads up that we're putting the poll up today; we're creating the header for it and using the Oscar preview video to accompany the poll! Hope it's okay if we reduce the featured article length a bit to make more room for the poll... I think the community is going to love this!

Lego Harry

Hello. Great work on Dirk's article.

  • I´ve heard that Hestia Jones appears in the game as well. Is there any resemblance to a film witch?
  • Madam Pomfrey can be found at the Ravenclaw wnreance. The others found there include Myrtle, Luna and Penelope in years 1-4. Can we add to BTS that Pomfrey was likely a Ravenclaw based on this?--Rodolphus 14:41, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

I´ve found Hestia. She is in the Leaky Caudron. You have to charm the chairs at the far left.--Rodolphus 15:30, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

Unliking a blog post

Is there anyway to unlike a blog post? I accidentally clicked the "Like" button while leaving a comment on this blog post and I naturally do not like the post. -Shorty1982 22:44, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks, I checked Facebook and I was able to remove it there. I didn't even realize I had my Facebook tied to Wikia. -Shorty1982 22:58, December 11, 2011 (UTC)
I hate how Facebook is getting tied into everything I do online, whether I like it or not. I didn't have Facebook connected to Wikia according to my preferences and it still connected to my Facebook somehow. I never use my Facebook to log into, or set up an account on, for anything but Facebook. I connected to Facebook and told Wikia to never send anything to my newsfeed. So many sites have started using Facebook for their comments, which I don't like as I like to keep the different sites I go to separate from one another and because I don't want these various sites getting any bit of my info from Facebook at all. -Shorty1982 23:07, December 11, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, and you're welcome. That guy's post really annoyed me, insulting you solely for following the policies of this wiki. You never delete something without having, and giving, a good reason. IMNSHO you are an excellent admin and one of the many excellent editors on this wiki that help make it such a great source of all things Harry Potter, keep up the good work! -Shorty1982 23:13, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

Other Licensed Harry Potter Books

There are a number of more minor, but nonetheless officially licensed Harry Potter books that don't yet have any mention yet on the Wiki, such as the Harry Potter Magic Eye books, the Harry Potter Pop-Up Book and the Harry Potter film poster books. Seing as these books don't really add anything to canon, I was thinking of creating a page for them like List of Harry Potter unofficial guidebooks page, though possibly with brief descriptions of each one, since they are license products. I just wanted to make sure first that it wasn't okay to actually create individual pages for them. If this is something that would need more discussion or a vote first, that's cool too.

"Blanked on request of J.P.C. The user in question no longer has access to this account. Please do not re-instate this page."
Can this be the case? I am not sure. It is his first edit which created his ID-account and on his talk page is no message from John Canavi. So I thought I better ask you. What do you think?

Hi Seth, hope you've had a merry Christmas! Just so you're aware, Dannisen (yes, I know!) should be due another block per Cav's last warning, in regards to copying non Harry Potter related content from Wikipedia. Also, I'm not sure if you saw what he wrote on Lavendar Brown's page, but describing someone with black skin as being "diseased" is unnaceptable, and most definately grounds for Administrative action. Again, merry Christmas and a happy New Year! Jayden Matthews 18:55, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

I did, thank you. I'm still enjoying it, truth be told! Over-indulged on the alchy-hol a little, but hey, it's Christmas! As for... him, you're the admin, so as always it's your call. It just incredibly frustrating coming to the realisation that nothing whatsoever will encourage him to change, and that we will be back here again, probably within days. When you say good faith, I'm not sure if you're talking about the articles, or the Lavendar buisiness? If it's the former, than I'd have to diagree. He deliberately copy and pasted them from Wikipedia, despite being told several times not to, by Cav and myself. If it's the latter I agree it was probably just sheer stupidity on his part. I'm sure you can understand why I found what he wrote repulsive. Anyway, enjoy what's left of the season! (I've missed talking to you bytw) Jayden Matthews 20:00, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hi it's me Kellyanne in the Merlin wiki I had bad stuff happening. Everyone hated me even the admin then. But just to let u know I bet this wiki is great. You know In the other wiki my friend got access to my account and wrote bad stuff to people I hope you'd be a great ADMIN and i'm sure u will.!!!


Playing LEGO Harry, I´ve noticed that somr characters are revealed to be Occlumens (the yellow sprll is Occlumency, isn´t it?)

Hello, I am new to the wiki, but I was wondering, have you ever considered using badges? I have been on some wikis that use them, and they really boost how much people edit. Not that people don't edit here, but most consider it as an acheivement to strive for so they edit more and with higher quality. There is also the fact that some spam to get them, but with 17 admins you should be able to attend to that.

It is just an idea, and I leave it up to you to decide.

Have a great day! Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it. 03:40, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

P.S I know I have left this message on Cavalier One's talk page, but he is not responding. :/

Ok, that sounds cool.

Also, I noticed one of your admins User:Me Potter Fan hasn't edited since Oct 12 2009. As that is over 2 years ago... shouldn't he be demoted? Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it. 23:26, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

That's exactly my point. If he isn't doing anything, why should he stay as admin? Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it. 23:32, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Seriously? Wow.

I was an admin on the Bakugan Wiki, and got demoted. (I was barely on and wasn't using it.

We have had over 20 admins, and if you don't edit for 2 months without a reason, (e.g vacation,no internet, etc...) you are demoted. Right now we have 8. Wise men don't need advice. Fools won't take it. 23:51, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Title names

Hi, Seth!
I got this message from NosFiesta and are now unsure if I did a mistake. Perhaps it is better you decide. Here's the text:
"Hi Harry! You moved the article at from the original at stating "Middle names or initials are not used in titles".

However the "J" is part of this actor's stage name "Christian J Simpson". E.g. you will note that you have not renamed other actors or moved their pages like "Helena Bonham Carter" to become "Helen Carter" at, or numerous other examples like "Roger C. Bailey" Can you please therefore move this page back to to keep the wiki consistent and allow searches for the actor's full stage name to be fruitious. Thanks!

Rear courtyard

Hi Seth, I just wanted to ask you about the Rear courtyard article. It was named Secret Garden and you moved it to the current title. Is there any source for this rename? The game calls it "Secret Garden" (in Colin Creevey's photoalbum). Thank you, RavenclawcrestThe Evening Prophet Ravenclawcrest (Owl Post) 00:51, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

Don't worry, it really sounds very "generic", but it's the only "canonical" name we have. On the other hand, I really think that LEGO confirms that the Viaduct we see in DHp2 is a different one, which is not contradicted by any film. I have made a suggestion about the Viaduct Entrance page in Talk:Viaduct. I would be pleased if you could have a look at it.

IP Edits on Userpage

Remember the earlier problem with a number of anonymous users editing someone's userpage? Well, it seems to be happening again with this user here. It was actually first edited by an anon in January of last year, then in December, another anon left a message saying that it had been blanked on the request of the user. Since then, it has been edited by at least eight different anons, as well as you and 1337star, trying to revert the edits. Since it has never been edited by the original user, I restored it to the Wikia default, but I think it may need to be protected like you did with the other page, since people keep messing with it.

Hope you're well...I'm glad the video/poll on the main page is doing so well! We're running a Grammy Giveaway event over on Music Wiki starting next week. One of the components is a Grammy Pool where you vote on your top picks. The composer Alexandre Desplat from HPDH Part 2 is nominated in a category that is part of the pool (Best Score Soundtrack) nd so we're hoping we can entice your community to participate. We'd like to put up the attached participation badge on your main page and we'd do a blog about Alexandre and some insights into his work... How's that sound ? Lemme know, best User:Bchwood


Seth, happy new year to you too! Psyched to have your participation in our Grammys event. A few new ideas I have- would love to put up a 4th slider (since u have the space avail) that links to the our Grammy event. Slider image below so you can see/share it with the other Admins. Also, would you or somebody from your community have any interest in doing a quick blog interview wtih us about Alexandre Desplat and his Scores for HP over the years, and what you think his chances of winning the Grammy for Best Scored Sountrack for Visual Media are?? Could be fun!

Also, we are going to be doing a big Oscars Pool and since Harry Potter is up for 3 noms, would love to do similar stuff for it!!! Cheers, User:Bchwood

Hi Seth, I went through our catalog of Harry Potter vidoes and we have all the identical trailer videos you guys currently have on each film page and the videos in our catalog are all high-res with amazing sound quality. I'd like to swap the YouTube videos out- we would simpy put the better quality vidoes in the exact same spot/sizing. I think you'll agree the viewing experience is much improved (not to mention legal) with these videos!

Hope this is okay, I'll await to hear back before we do anything...



hey hows it going u deleted a page called harry potter return of death but jk rowling said she will bring it out on oprah so create it again ok

hi can u undelete my page harry potter and the return of death jk rowling said she'll bring it out

Thanx (Neville Potter 03:38, February 2, 2012 (UTC))


Great, just wanted to clear it with you first..let's see how the community reacts to the new videos and then we should discuss putting more up- we have tons and it seems to me a video gallery after the photo galleries would be really cool so you guys can have all the versions fo the trailers (which I would think the community would want as it goes towards being comprehensive in all areas).

Talk soon Seth!

I recently saw the move vandalism for the page regarding the film version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and I was thinking of that a permanent move block should be placed at least on the pages for the books and films so non-administrators can never move them around again especially if it were a vandal edit.

Hogwarts Express Conductor

I just made an edit on the conductor page regarding his house. I am the actor featured on the page. I can assure you the Conductor might hint or mislead. He will comment on all the houses - but he NEVER reveals his house. Discussing anymore about the rules would place me in breach of confidentiality, just hoping you will not block that correction.

PS if this letter is NOT private can i ask you to be sure is deleted from any public forum. thanks you.

Well it seems you still reverted the page to the WRONG information. You would think the person wearing the suit 55 hours a week would know the correct information and you would be a source worth talking to. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Savvy1 (talkcontribs).

Once you post something on a talk page, it becomes a matter of public record. Even if it were removed, it would still be available in the history. In any case, anyone claim to be a particular individual on the Internet, and that doesn't necessarily make it so unles you have a means of proving it. However, if the only source for the conductor being Hufflepuff is that YouTube video, then I think the information should be removed, s he definitely doesn't specifically say in it that he's Hufflepuff, he just tells you where the common room is, which isn't necessarily something only a Hufflepuff would know.

Unable to Edit Photos

I'm not sure if you can help me with this, but perhaps you can give me an answer. Whenever I go to edit a page, and then go to modify a photo, it won't let me change the caption. I edit it, and when I click "Add photo", nothing happens! It just won't close! So I have to hit the X in the corner, thus not saving any of my edits, and leaving the editting page. I'm not sure if everyone is having this problem, but maybe you could help me out with it? AlastorMoody 23:43, February 22, 2012 (UTC)

Out-of-control Blog Comments

Seth, if you have a moment, you might want to have a look User blog:Danrah/JK Rowling (Jo) WRITES SUMTHING NEW!!!!!!!, which has attracted a particularly vicious series of comments. The whole thing seems to be getting out-of-control and becoming something of a distracton. ProfessorTofty 00:37, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

Problem with User

Hey Seth,

Recently I've been having an issue with this user. They've been on chat with yelling, swearing, and all that so they were kickbanned. So anyway, now he's been messaging another chatmod, saying he has done nothing, saying my ban is unfair, and basically spamming her talk page. He has also made no legit edits to any of the wiki's pages, but mainly spamming peoples talk pages about how their ban is unfair or about random things. If you could please take an appropriate actions, it would be very much appreciated.

Of course seth. I was refering to talk page messages. Head of Ravenclaw |   Send me an Owl!

Hello- what does it mean by censoring language? Because I got a week ban from the Glee wiki- and I thought I had censored- but apparently not- what is it? So I know what to do when I get back.

Gleek:D 21:29, February 26, 2012 (UTC)

I didn't bash any ships- and as regards the characters, I said a character was a racist b*st*rd for calling another character Tina Blowen Wang- and I also said another character's grandmother was a douche for kicking her grandaughter out for being a lesbian. But thanks anyway :)Gleek:D 19:41, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

Notability Policy Discussion - Vote?

Well, we've been kicking it around for a long time, and I agree that it's time to go ahead and move to a vote to at least pass the policy as it is currently. Is there anything else that needs to be done, or can I just go ahead and open a vote? ProfessorTofty 00:57, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Editing infoboxes problem

Sometimes when I edit infoboxes, I publish the edit and the name field is mysteriously gone. I've gotten two owls about removing it and I don't know what I've done wrong if I've done something wrong.

Hi, Seth! How are you? Do you remember me? --Lord 16:00, February 29, 2012 (UTC)


Hi, Seth! I saw your message on User talk:Danniesen about the Order of Merlin 1 and only wanted to tell you that I did it already at 14 December 2011, but he deleted it the same day. Is it forbidden for a normal user to do this?  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 11:58, March 1, 2012 (UTC)

I saw already that he did it and was irritated, because normally people are glad to get an award. I thought he would put it on his user page. He did it first with mine and then deleted it nonetheless. But he didn't. That I can't understand. I was only uncertain if I did something I was not allowed. But now I know it was o. k. Thanks for your answer.

It's now on his user page, seems he likes yours more than mine.

Can I add this?

On the website:, it gives some information about Tonks. I'd like you to look over it and see what you think before I add it in.

  • This is the information --> Nymphadora Tonks from the Harry Potter novels doesn't like it when people use her first name, and is thus only called "Tonks". When a fan asked J.K. Rowling why Tonks doesn't use her middle name instead of her first, the author revealed that Tonks' middle name is "Vulpecula", in keeping with the Black family tradition of naming children after constellations, stars, and other heavenly phenomena.

It's under the section called Literature; should I add Vulpecula in as Tonks' middle name, or not? HarryPotterRules1 00:08, March 10, 2012 (UTC)

Assistance needed

I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing that goes on Harry Potter Wiki:Requests for administrator attention or not, so I figured I'd message you directly about it. The page on Secrets of the Darkest Art was moved to an incorrect title (Secrets of the Incredible Dark Arts), and now needs an administrator to move it back to the proper title. -- 1337star (Owl Post) 20:25, March 10, 2012 (UTC)


Hey Seth Cooper i'm Dracogon 111 and i was wondering how were you able to put your name on the mauarader's map, on which website, on which app please answer.

Header templates

Hi Seth. I gotta trouble with creating header template. Could you tell me the way how to do it ? I'd be very thankful, coz' I have an idea to make one, quite useful, I think. Colin Fletcher 10:57, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to create a header just similar to Conjecture or Pottermore. I aware of the fact that my idea can be rejected, though I believe nothing bad will happen when I show you my conception.
My template would inform wiki editors (rather that only wiki readers) that particular article is about thing that is involved in some real, current events, thus that article's content has to be exdended or modified (am I making myself clear? :) For example, J.K. Rowling's official site is closed for everybody and will be relaunched later in this spring, thereby It's possible that most of its content is going to be changed and in consequence it has to be taken into account on HP wiki. Thus, the the whole contents about JKR's website (its dektop, sneakoscope, etc.) can expire for some months, lose its valialidity. Anyway, look at this:

This article or section contains information that might get outdated, due to possible
canon changes, caused by unfinished, current events. If the update occurs, please
add, change or modify the article's content.

As for the language, I have no idea whether it's written 'professionally' or not, though you can change some words (unless you reckon that's redundant or unnecessary). I know that most of headers have a quotation from books that is associated with situation cuncluded in header's message. Hence, I've chosen one:

Professor McGonagall told me what awful things have happened when wizards have meddled with time.

I reckon it really suits, isn't it? Ok, If you like my idea or not, let me know about it. The only thing I can do now is looking forward your response :) Colin Fletcher 13:53, March 18, 2012 (UTC)
Placing possible-to-be-outdated template on Community Portal is a good idea, as well as template for articles whose sources are unaccesible. You told that you don't see any articles in which current event template can be inserted, despite J.K. Rowling's official website. Let me expand that list a little:
We could put it also in:
As you certainly know, Rowling's gonna publish a new book targeted to grown-ups. If this (her new novel) had its own page on Harry Potter wiki (though I unfortunately doubt it), it would be next article that would need my template. We could also put that template on articles featuring months, or days of week (practically they can't be changed, however many things are added on Pottermore nowadays, so chronological table changes in consequence). You have to make a decision - accept that "project" or reject it. By the way, I haven't known about current event template on Wikipedia. Colin Fletcher 17:00, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

Related Videos

Hi Seth,

I hope you are well. I wanted to mention some exciting news on the video front.

Firstly, the proprietary Harry Potter videos we embedded for you have been getting terrific stats. The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 video on the main page was our highest streaming video for February with 3,815 impressions!

Given that your community is responding so well to these high-resolution videos, I wanted to let you know we have a new related video product that’s going to bring even more amazing content to Wikia. We’re hoping that your community will be one of the first to try this new feature and give us feedback.

This unique video showcase is designed to play videos related to the content on your wiki, giving you and your community complete control to add or remove videos by each individual placement of the related videos product.

It’s easy. All you need to do is select videos from a growing library of content provided by Wikia and partners like Screenplay (Hulu, IGN and more coming soon) or you can add videos from YouTube and other supported video hosting sites. Viewers can scroll through and watch the entire selection, and logged in users can contribute to it.

You can see an example of how the related videos product works on Moviepedia here: The Artist. The module is in the right rail. You can also browse our selection of over 180 Harry Potter videos to choose from here:

Alternately, Wikia can give you a head start by placing a pre-populated video module with relevant staff picks on your wiki. You and your community still have complete control to adjust what is presented in the related video showcase.

We look forward to hearing your suggestions on how to make this product one of our best. Please respond as soon as possible to let us know if you want to be a part of this pilot program.

Peter@fandom 16:50, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

P.S. Forgot to mention that Wikia will be spotlighting all of the wikis that are a part of this video pilot program!!

Hi Seth,

Thanks for the speedy and- more importantly- the enthusiastic reply! So glad to be making this feature availabe to you; so the next step is to determine whether you guys want to program the content yourself or have us do it. We are more than happy to take on the programming effort ourselves on your behalf, as the initial work will a bit time consuming, but it's your decision to make.

Look forward to hearing back!

Hi There. I am new to this Wiki and have a question to ask you. In Harry Potter: Chamber of Secrets (Film), Harry was controlling the snake to head towards one of the Gryffindors. Who was that. Ddill 16:33, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Can you please upload a picture of that guy who said "Good evening Bellatrix" in DHP2.

Severus SnapeYou're late, Potter! 21:16, March 21, 2012 (UTC)

Hello Seth Cooper, I am an active member on the Harry Potter Wikia. I was wondering if I could possibly be made a moderator. I am responsible,I follow the rules, I know wrong from right and yet I am not a buzzkill. Rather than trying to make this wiki a boring place, I am trying to make it a fun yet safer place. Other moderators I know of on this Wikia are Annabeth and Percy and of course Cosmic Chronos. I don't post bad posts,or spam and all of my posts are Harry Potter related. I also don't post bad words. If I feel the need to use bad words (like in a quote) I don't actually write out the word, I do this B****. I feel that I would make a good moderator so please take my request into consideration. Thank you. Harrypotterfreak233Harrypotterfreak223 (talk) 20:47, December 1, 2016 (UTC)
