Due to the inactivity of Me Potter Fan and Freakatone, we are conducting a vote to decide on a new admin. You, Starstuff, and Oread will be in the running. Are you interested?--Matoro183 (Talk) 23:48, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Sweet. As soon as the other two respond I'll put up the vote.--Matoro183 (Talk) 00:19, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Seth how do you put userboxes on your page tell me in your own words



Seth can you copy the userbox codes and paste them on your reply


It won't work when i copy them —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Khanhan100 (talkcontribs).


For the house-points game, we can perhaps have quidditch teams that we compete in the Quidditch Cup. If you think this idea is good please can you post ideas how we are going to compete. We already have a gryffindor team, and I am heading for a Hufflepuff team. cheers! -- Hellabore

At the moment, the idea I have developed for a Quidditch cup has been arranged and started per discussion with Matoro183. I am at the moment developing the draft page at User:Hellabore/Parchment. Could you help me with the draft? Cheers! -- HellaboreHallows(Deathly Hallows)

I agree, but as we are still conducting a vote to decide the new administrators, we will leave it at Matoro183. Could you create your house quidditch pitch, for more ideas go to the Gryffindor Quidditch Team. -- HellaboreHallows(Deathly Hallows)

Removing comments

So sorry about that, I must have clicked a wrong button when I was typing and not relised it. Thanks you for your understanding, HellaboreHallows(Deathly Hallows)

Thanks, I will do that from now on. Cheers! -- HellaboreHallows(Deathly Hallows)

10 points

I've awarded you 10 points for creating the article Millicent Bulstrode's cat. Starstuff (Owl me!) 19:44, 20 May 2009 (UTC)


I've upped your user rights to Administrator, per the election. Make sure not to abuse the extra power that comes with it and to take into account the community as a whole. If you have any questions about what you're now able to do feel free to leave a message on my talk page. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 19:33, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Congrats.--Matoro183 (Talk) 21:31, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
You might want to look at this. We often have discussions there that you might be interested in.--Matoro183 (Talk) 22:14, 21 May 2009 (UTC)


Hey I thought that I may like to start a game called truth or dare, Harry Potter wiki style. The rules are below.


You must answer a question about the Harry Potter series


You will dare someone to do an edit on which page you wish.

If you like the idea, play here. With only three members we have manged to upgrade 7 articles from being stubs! -- HellaboreHallows(Deathly Hallows)


Hi, well, you're the only admin I know of, I've been signed up two or three days, and I've started to understand linking, boxes, and all that stuff, but I'm still confused about how things go on this site, for example, house points? i wrote an article, Xenophilius Lovegood's Necklace and haven't gotten points, so could you give an overall summary of how that and just how regular site things work? --Blakice1313 21:56, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Can you get on the IRC channel?--Matoro183 (Talk) 22:54, 28 May 2009 (UTC)


Seth, Could you please tell me how to get the userbox that says how many edits you have?--Blakice1313 23:27, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Hey was wondering how you got a great signature -- 13:31, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

IP block

I see you blocked an ip sor infanity. Was it bacause he is a sockpuppet or some serious offence? Chester Talk 18:51, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I am talking about this IP Chester Talk 19:35, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Ok, but was blocking him for infanity really needed? It is your choice as an admin but it seems harsh for an ip. For a user yes infanity it is ok in my mind but for an ip it is too harsh. Is it possiable that you could make it a year? Chester Talk 19:45, 31 May 2009 (UTC)


Just havin a little fun, sorry.......

If you had a wand, what type of wood would it have? I'd want an oak, mahogany, ash, and maple wand with a steel ring around the shaft. I'd also want a 7x44mm scope and a pistol grip for it. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Define term

Can anyone define the term "Bezaars" (if I have that spelling right)? Glarge 19:38, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

You mean Bezoar? Just click the word to see if it's the right information you are seeking for --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 00:50, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Re: Thanks

Oh, sorry about that. I forgot to check his/her talk page first. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 00:59, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Project Fred Weasley:Possessions


I'm working on the possessions section of Fred Weasley article for Project Fred Weasley, in User:Quidditch Lover/parchment. Could you help expand it? If you would be able to help out, please answer on User talk:Quidditch Lover/parchment. Thanks! Quidditch Lover C11-quidditch (My talk)(contribs) 04:32, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

You are allowed to unblock user "AVADA KEDAVRA" even if another administrator says no. You can tell another administrator why you unblocked it earlier. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Changeghghjf (talkcontribs).


Nice to see you reverted that nasty edit to the Philosphers Stone Page, and fortunately I took care of the rest. I would've contacted you about this problem anyway since I know you are an administrator. -Adv193 00:15, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

I actually blocked him already. That's not a user unknowingly doing unhelpful things, its straight up vandalism. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 00:55, 9 June 2009 (UTC)


Hey Seth, I have a quick question. Do you think what I'm doing by cleaning up all the redirects on the wiki is too much? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 15:11, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Sorry about that. So what do you think of what I've been doing by cleaning all the redirects up? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 15:16, 10 June 2009 (UTC)


Hello Seth. I am a member of the Sims Wiki, and a lover of the Harry Potter series. I would absoulty love to join this wiki. Do need to known anything? Thanks!!!--Bella Goth 00:10, 12 June 2009 (UTC)Bella Goth

New Editing System

Hey Seth, I have a question. How can I clean up the redirects with this new editing system? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 16:09, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

How to Win at Google

Hi! I started a community discussion here, and I just wanted to make sure it got the admins attention. Thanks! —Scott (talk) 19:11, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Banned symbol

Hey Seth, is it all right for me to be putting the "banned" symbol on the user or talk pages of banned users? Or can only admins do that? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 14:40, 18 June 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for the clarification!! I'll look for any banned users & give them the banned symbol!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 17:44, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Selected Picture Nominations

Hey Seth,
There are a few comments on the Selected Picture Nomination page. I don't know if I should strike them, or try to track them down. Could you please do something about them? Thanks. Quidditch Lover C11-quidditch (My talk)(contribs) 20:11, 27 June 2009 (UTC)



Could you help out a fellow Ravenclaw? ↓↓↓ First, do you know any wand makers?

Second, how do you make a signature?

↑↑↑ Thanks so much!! What color could I use for bronze? I want to recreate the book colors, like yours is the movie colors.BarretMark96 Hp7 (Owl Post)

I got a good color. Yours wasn't exactly dark enough, I ended up going with B8860B BarretMark96 Hp7 (Owl Post)

Lord Valensus

Don't you think that Septimus Weasley was red-haried? All Weasleys are.--Lord Valensus 15:11, 28 June 2009 (UTC)Okay.--Lord Valensus 16:06, 28 June 2009 (UTC) This is maybe a stupid question for you: is "c" in "Cygnus" prounonce as "c" in "cat" or as "c" in "mice"?--Lord Valensus 12:54, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Do you know etymology of the name Cedrella?--Lord Valensus 14:11, 3 July 2009 (UTC)


Hey Seth, could you help me with something? Thanks. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 00:13, 29 June 2009 (UTC)


Well it's gonna sound weird but I noticed on the Hogwarts Houses page that there was this template showing the names of the houses, their heads & ghosts. Do you know how I can edit that to get rid of the redirects? I noticed some when I edited the Houses page. Thanks again. -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 00:19, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah that's the one I'm talkin about. Thanks a lot Seth!! -- T.J. (talk) 00:26, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Seth!! You're the best!! I don't know what I would do without your help!! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 00:29, 29 June 2009 (UTC)


Hey Seth, I just wanted to say thanks again for all the help you've given me for helping the Wiki! I'd be lost without your help! Thanks again! -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 11:22, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Spells in Half-Blood Prince (video game) article

Prove to me that Carpe Retractum and Aqua Eructo spells were false informations to put in the article, as i noted in the reference info. It was confirmed by Warner Bros., & EA Games. --ÈnŔîčö Ravenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 03:49, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

New Book?

Seth, my friend has told me there is another harry potter book, its called "james potter and the halls of elder crossing" it follows harry's son and his life at school. Although it isn't written by J.K Rowling I think its worth a look —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Gryffindor Seeker (talkcontribs).


Hello Seth my name is Sila I just joined Wikia and I was wondering how I can get those info boxes like you, could you tell me? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Crystal Magix (talkcontribs).

Rollback on Lucius Malfoy article

Could you do a rollback on Lucius Malfoy? The last dozen or so edits by and (same user), while not actually vandalism, are at best unnecessary and at worst sloppy. Nick O'Demus 12:41, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Year/decade/century articles

I noticed you've been doing a lot of work on revisions and redirecting on articles for each year. Do you need any help on that? Nick O'Demus 01:19, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

A couple of questions:
First, what do you want to do with the years pre-1000? It doesn't seem necessary to have 100 individual decade articles if 97 of them are uneventful. Do you still want to create the articles, and redirect them to the century pages? What about the individual years for that millenium?
Second, for events known to have happened in a certain century, but the exact dates are unclear, should those just be listed in the article for that century?
Let me know if what I've done so far is correct, and I'll work on it some more later on tonight.
Nick O'Demus 00:31, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
What should the titles be for the articles pre-1000? For 0-1000, I was thinking either "First millenium C.E." or "First millenium A.D.", depending on whether the Common Era or Anno Domini dating system should be used. Also, either "B.C.E. - Before the Common Era" or just "B.C." for pre-0. Nick O'Demus 05:30, 13 July 2009 (UTC)


Hello Seth, could you please explain how Severus Snape was really on the good side when he killed Dumbledore —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bongo2009 (talkcontribs).

Hey are you planning to take the comments off above. Many will be very offended by them. --Profiteor Ravenclawcrest(Owl Me) 09:44, 2 May 2009 (UTC) 03:11, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Alright, Just didn't know because of some words used, Thanks.--Profiteor Ravenclawcrest(Owl Me) 03:16, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
