Hi Smonocco -- we are excited to have Harry Potter Wiki as part of the Wikia community! Thanks for joining us, and we'd like to give you some tips to help you get started on making your wiki great.
Your first four steps: Edit
1. Create your User Page - this is a great place to introduce yourself (and practice wiki-editing!)
2. Add a logo - learn how to create a logo image, then to add it to the wiki.
3. Create your first 10 articles - use the box on the right to create ten pages, starting each one off with a few sentences. For example if you are starting a wiki on a TV show, you might create an article for each main character.
4. Edit your Main Page - click your logo, and make sure your front page has internal links ([[like this]]) to the ten articles you just created, and any other improvements you can think of.
Once you've done these four things, you've created a great starting point -- your wiki looks friendly and ready for visitors. You can then invite some friends to help you create the next twenty pages, and expand the ones you've built.
Keep going! The more pages you create and link to each other, the sooner that others who are searching for "Harry Potter Wiki" will be able find your project in search engines, read your content and join you in editing.
If you have more questions, we've provided a full set of help pages, or you can email us through our contact form. Don't forget to check out other wikis on Wikia for ideas on layout, organizing your pages, and more. Have fun!
Best wishes, Catherine Munro
Hi! I am new to the wiki, so I do not know much. Do you know how to link articles to other articles? Since I am also on another wiki (wikiHow), I sort of know what the format is, but it's not exactly the same. Thanks! 126.96.36.199 02:59, March 15, 2010 (UTC)
- Hi! Linking to articles on this wiki is the same as any other wiki - just do it like this:
[[Insert article title here]]
Hope that helps -Smonocco 16:23, March 15, 2010 (UTC)

Order of pheniox Edit
Alastor 'Mad-Eye' Moody was made the Secret-Keeper, meaning that only he could reveal the location of the Order's headquaters.
it's supposed to be
Dumbledore was made the Secret-Keeper, meaning that only he could reveal the location of the Order's headquaters.
- I don't recall writing that particular piece of information and indeed I have read the books, but do feel free to correct it if you wish. -Smonocco 13:00, July 21, 2010 (UTC)
Two Lupins Edit
There are two articles on Remus Lupin. One is entitled 'Remus Lupin', the other,'Professor Lupin'. I will try to merge them both into Remus Lupin's page.
Are you going to be active, or...

- Well I thought certain things could be done slightly differently on this wiki. -Smonocco 12:43, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
Hi I joined about 10 minutes ago and can't work out how to add a picture to the page I created, any tips would be great, thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stewie Griffin97 (talk • contribs)
- Go to the article you want to edit and select "edit". Then, just the "add photo" icon and chooses the picture or upload a new one. -Smonocco 00:50, December 4, 2010 (UTC)
