November 2011[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. We welcome and appreciate your contributions, including your edits to Magical objects in Harry Potter, but we cannot accept original research.

Speedy deletion nomination of Margaret Clark (writer)[edit]

If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles.

A tag has been placed on Margaret Clark (writer) requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A7 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because the article appears to be about a person or group of people, but it does not indicate how or why the subject is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, such articles may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that the page was nominated in error, contest the nomination by clicking on the button labelled "Click here to contest this speedy deletion" in the speedy deletion tag. Doing so will take you to the talk page where you can explain why you believe the page should not be deleted. You can also visit the page's talk page directly to give your reasons, but be aware that once a page is tagged for speedy deletion, it may be removed without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but do not hesitate to add information that is consistent with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines. If the page is deleted, you can contact one of these administrators to request that the administrator userfy the page or email a copy to you. WarlordFrederick (talk) 00:56, 19 March 2012 (UTC)

Mixed Magics: Four Tales of Chrestomanci[edit]

Hi, I have added a lot of bibliographic data, cleaned up my mess, and added slightly more completed a draft [80 minutes later]. I wonder whether you have access to the first UK edition or an equivalent Australia edition (contents with first UK page numbers).

Do you recognize the US preface (Talk:Mixed Magics#Preface)? What other material is included --up to page 9 if you have the first UK or equivalent?

Reply at Talk:Mixed Magics will be welcome and perhaps most useful. --P64 (talk) 20:04, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Congratulations, JustPotteringAround, you've recently made your 1,000th edit to articles on English Wikipedia!

Thank you! JustPotteringAround (talk) 22:58, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Collapsed temps[edit]

Hi. I was wondering why you're collapsing these navboxes? When someone "views" the template, isn't it a bit strange to hide it from them? If someone views these navboxes now, they have an extra click to make to see the template they were trying to view. I do agree with the re-ordering of White, though. INeverCry 01:20, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Um. No idea, really :) except possibly out of habit, as I'm used to working with larger navboxes (such as the Jackie French one). But you're right. Go ahead and change them if you want, since there's no real reason to collapse them --JustPotteringAround (talk) 01:24, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
It is standard with huge boxes like this or your Paul Jennings etc. Your work on these continues to impress, btw. If you ever find yourself lacking a navbox candidate, I hope you know about these cats: Category:Works by author, Category:Novels by author, Category:Poetry by author, etc. INeverCry 01:41, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Oooh, thanks! Looks like I've got my work cut out for me :) JustPotteringAround (talk) 01:48, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, there's plenty of material there, which is a good thing for those of us who love lists and such, as you and I do. I've done a few random ones from those cats, like this little Irish-themed one. INeverCry 02:01, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for September 17[edit]
