Editing of full-protected pages

Hi, Sajuuk! May I ask if you are a helper or do you work for Wikia that you can edit full-protected pages? Normally only admins and higher can do so if I remember correct.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 15:15, May 1, 2016 (UTC)

Yes, the missing logo irritated me. And that there are things you don't like I didn't know. But as content moderator you should have a logo, too, but I don't see any. So that's the cause I asked you. Thanks for the information!  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 16:10, May 1, 2016 (UTC)
Then let's hope the best. This bug exists already for a long time.  Harry granger   Talk   contribs 16:20, May 1, 2016 (UTC)


You might consider that when multiple people have to call you out, including actual sysops, on your tone and approach to handling things that there might be a better way? Given your extensive experience, perhaps sharing some of that knowledge and providing a pointer to this new user as to how to use a sandbox would be a useful and friendly follow up to removing their first edit? This doesn't seem to be your style which is why I consider it overzealous and decided on a good will gesture to be more welcoming (even at the risk of "inciting laziness" ;). Ah another day, another argument with you. Same time tomorrow? --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:17, May 3, 2016 (UTC)

Re: Bot

Sorry, but if the proposal appeared uncontroversial, then I'd feel comfortable weighing in on it. But as it stands, it appears that there's quite a bit of concern. It's not personal. I just don't feel I know enough about the situation to be comfortable making an informed decision. ProfessorTofty (talk) 17:05, May 9, 2016 (UTC)

Link templates

I edited {{PS}} to fit the current input/output we were talking about so it can demo in the forums. I put the Chapter after the default value a little differently to avoid the double pipes. eg {{PS|1}} = Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I am doing something similar on QTA, TBB, and FB so let me know if you find any issues with it. Cheers --Ironyak1 (talk) 21:17, May 13, 2016 :(UTC)

One more thought - perhaps all the template names should drop including the initial letter for 'the', 'of'. So PS, CS, PA, GF, OP, HBP, DH. Saves a little space ;) and is more consistent for WWHP: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, HPE: Harry Potter: The Exhibition, MHP: The Making of Harry Potter, etc. I added HPCV to replace TCV to follow the same convention. The two letter codes are familiar to anyone who followed The HP Lexicon so they should be uncontroversial. --Ironyak1 (talk) 23:09, May 13, 2016 (UTC)
DOH - I just noticed that the changes I made to PS removes the chapter=1 approach we had settled on so I went back and modified it. Sorry about that! --Ironyak1 (talk) 02:56, May 14, 2016 (UTC)
