It appears that maybe you did misunderstand me, but no worry. Perhaps I should have have used different words. That is, I probably shouldn't have said merge. They are incredibly insignificant and don't warrant more than a passing mention. The only reason why I haven't been bold is because they are so very unimportant that it never really occurred to me to include them. But now that the subject has been brought up I think it would benefit the article to include a very brief mention of them; not for their sake, mind you, but so that readers might have a better understanding of Snape. But yes, merge was definitely the wrong word to use. If no one else makes mention of them in the next few days, I'll see if I can find an appropriate spot in the article to mention them.

Thanks for the fixing of the mere archiving, I was unsure if I had done it right. :) Judgesurreal777 19:42, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Whoops, I didn't notice that he/she had added it again, I tossed it. Thanks for the heads-up. V-train 03:01, 5 October 2007 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for the note and patiently fixing the citations and language on my edits :). A suggestion needed. Will it be too much to add an imagine of the cover art of "the great Snape debate " in the loyalties section? and I felt lack of mention of Snape's family like there is in LV or Dumbledore's page, do you think there should be a little mention of it.? Thanks again.September88 (talk) 22:35, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Alright I'm not adding the coverart now. If I ever added anything about the family. I'll give its reasons in the discussion page. Thanks a lot for your reply.September88 (talk) 14:52, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Ok, I never noticed you edited it out on the first place. I thought my edit never showed up that is why I added it again, my mistake. Anyway I can see what you are saying so if you want to edit it out again then go ahead. Carina J (talk) 03:30, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Voldemort Book Headlines[edit]

Why are you lumping summaries of books into each other with headings like "First two books" etc? Why not give all the books their own titles like in other HP character pages? —Preceding unsigned comment added by GobletG (talkcontribs) 14:59, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Re: recent Snape edit[edit]

No, I understood what you were doing, and approved of it. I just felt it bore reminding folk of that little truth. :) - Arcayne (cast a spell) 08:48, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Re:"The only thing worse than being witty..."[edit]

Sorry if I've upset you Magidin but you know how games of manly one-upmanship go. I can assure you that's all it is. I can tell you're a very witty chap and I value a worthy opponent. Perhaps you're right and I have got a bit of a superiority complex, you're not the first person to tell me that but so long as you know our skirmishes of wit are nothing personal, just friendly competition. I would have put in a smiley but embarrasingly I'm not entirely sure how to do one. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 21:36, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Thank you Magidin but I assure you no-one has a superiority complex as big as mine and for good reason. As for the only thing worse than being witty, well I needn't worry about the thing in question. With regards to my "over-the-top comment about worthy opponents seldom being found", you'll find it on Arcayne's talk page somewhere. It will have been archived now. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 08:41, 4 June 2008 (UTC)


Oh yes. Sorry, I missed that. I thought it rather out of character for you to make a spelling error like that, Magidin. And if you're wondering about the title of this comment, I just though it would be rather amusing if you replied to it on my page with Re: at the beginning. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 20:59, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Re:Niall McAuley[edit]

Oh I see, most amusing. Are you an atheist Magidin? Oh by the way, I'm disappointed to notice you never replied to the post above, I was rather looking forward to that. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 10:56, 7 July 2008 (UTC)


Fine you took out my additions about the decline of the Gaunt family, but why take out the part where I say how much merope sold the locket for and to who?

Tu parles français?[edit]

If you speak French and have a dictionary handy then why will yu not acknowledge that Vol De Mort is French for "Flight from Death"? Hmm? Read the Talk section to see my reply on your deletion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:29, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Je parle un peu français. "Parlez-vous français", pas "Tu parlez français".

Magidin, keep up the good work.

Fermat's Last Theorem[edit]

Please tell me why you remove the generalizations and similar equations of Fermat's Last Theorem? (talk) 14:48, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

I reverted your revert because ...[edit]

Voldemort is portrayed as being the main enemy of the Wizarding world. Sirius Black states that Voldemort is "the most evil wizard who ever existed" and upon Voldemort's return, the Wizarding world is thrown into international panic. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 14:46, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry, I seem to have that effect on people. Some people become rather amusing when they're annoyed, you being one of them. The people on Voldemort's side are essentially more or less the same thing as him. For instance when people call Morgoth "the Black Foe of the World", they don't mean his own followers. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 17:34, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Maybe so but he does seem to be the ruler and indeed personification of most of the bad in the Wizarding world. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 18:37, 26 August 2008 (UTC)
Very well. Fair enough. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 19:57, 26 August 2008 (UTC)

Re:What is it with me and categories (very polite title)[edit]

He's a Dark Lord. That's the same thing. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 11:22, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I've been called that before. Furthermore I don't see why you're offended by a simple question about your nationality. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 18:13, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Jack Dawson was being metaphorical. He isn't royalty of any description, he's a peasant. He isn't even a king of peasants. If I had a dog, and my dog had a child and my dog's child had a pet, that would be Jack Dawson. Lord Voldemort however, is a Dark Lord, which is to say, a warlord with magical powers. Warlords actually rule people, thereby qualifying them for the title of Lord. Furthermore, no I don't know you in real life, you just remind me of someone I used to know. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 21:03, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't quite understand the shirt with puffy sleeves analogy but anyway, I simply meant that he was a warlord which is more or less the same thing, wouldn't you agree? --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 21:16, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Oh I see. And I think you'll find he does rule through force of arms although said arms are magic wands and yes he has an army of Death Eaters and Dark Creatures at his command which he uses to rule through suppression and whatever but yes I suppose that means he's not a lord or a lady (definitely not a lady). --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 23:04, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
Yes well if you ask me, he is a dictator, just as he is a warlord but people on Wikipedia seem to be totally technicality happy these days so we'll leave him out of any dictator/warlord/lord categories for the time being. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 13:06, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
No, people around here are technicality happy. Do you know why? Because I say so. Voldemort is the definition of a dictator and a warlord. People just take tiny little details, extrapolate and blow things completely out of proportion because they don't like me. Personally I thought you were smarter than that but it seems I was wrong. And don't you cite Lewis Carrol at me. --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 15:54, 5 November 2008 (UTC)
What do you mean, get a therapist? --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 20:19, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

Okay, I'm sorry[edit]

I say that quite rarely but seriously I am sorry for my belligerence. Can we be friends again? --Jupiter Optimus Maximus (talk) 23:08, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Severus Snape[edit]

You can swim all the way to the Moon and back for all I care. Next, try calling Harry Potter gay because he found happiness with the Weasleys. Jienum (talk) 20:49, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
