Just a quick thought/reminder, but the tagging nomenclature for characters should follow the guidelines below:
- Current students should be tagged 'Students' (not Student... that's not a real category).
- Graduated students should have the 'Students' tag removed and should be tagged 'Alumni'.
- Both 'Students' and 'Alumni' tags assume Hogwarts, so any OTHER school should be specified in the tags.
- And everyone should be tagged as "Characters".
Thanks for keeping things consistent, friends!
I know there's not much activity here now so people affected might not see it bUT I've been having a problem on the wiki (for months actually, I thought it would just stop happening eventually) where the categories on my wiki pages keep disappearing. Not a few of them, but every single category on any given page just vanishes and I have to add them again. Before I thought it was just happening on the pages I'm editing fairly often and thought I'd just add them back when I was finished updating/repeatedly editing, but now I've just noticed they've disappeared on a page of mine that I've not touched in months.
Honestly I thought at first that someone was messing with me and deleting the categories just to be a problem but it seems to be a wik…

Marigold was born to Dominic and Celia McAlistor on June 2, 2069, in Celia's mother's home in Ireland. They shortly moved to a small house in the suburbs of London where they remained for all of Marigold's childhood. Marigold's mother, Celia, is a muggle while Dominic is a wizard employed at the British Ministry of Magic. Because they were both in their early twenties when Celia gave birth to Marigold via c-section, neither of them quite knew how to raise a child. Luckily enough for them, the house next door was occupied by a muggle family in the very same…
If you need a redirect for a page, post here and I'll sort it out. I will be going through and tidying things up anyway so here's what will change and what you might have that you could let me know about. Doing this means that your links will NOT be broken. Its an easy way to fix things.
- 1 A married female character who has changed their last name
- 2 A character with middle names in their wiki page
- 3 A character who goes by a name other than their given name
- 4 A business or institution that has a slang name or a shortened form
I will make it so that if people put their old name they will be redirected to their new name etc This is especially useful if you played the character on site before they got married.
middle names will be removed from their w…
We still have some past terms that haven't been gleaned for articles- potions, spells, current events, etc. There are also a number of past staff member bios that need added. If anyone is interested in helping work through the terms with me, please let me know.
Current terms haven't been added either.
I'm working on cleaning up some of the Ministry-related categories and pages. This includes changing the categories to better match what the departments are actually called. So far I have switched all pages from the 'Department of Magical Creatures' and 'Creatures Department' categories into the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures category page, Other departments will follow this and in general more clean up will happen! The goal is to get the Ministry-related categories and pages cleaned up in time for the next Ministry reopening.
I had this inspiration after writing commentary on the Saturday June 8th Gryffindor-Hufflepuff match. Which was distracing, mind you. Because there are characters building themsleves while I am trying to focus on the game and whats going on and how to make things interesting. And I realized today that the only characters I love - and other people don't mind (that I know of) are the ones that create themselves. They have their strange quirks - like inability to cook an edible thing, allergies, ect. But a character with depth is far better than a character that is about as entertaining as a soggy wet noodle in my humble opinion.
However, I do need to learn how to create a normal seeming character - because that would be interesting for me…
- eyes the number of guy charries I have here*
Just proof that I have been rping guys for a bit longer than my sole girl, Kat. (well there was Ainsley but only had her for a term as filler) Yes, I definitely think its time for another girl in my post bit and hopefully Ellura will do nicely. And hopefully I can still stand rping said female.Might just have to delve into my own gender's behavior once more :P
Does anyone want their pages and bios proof read? I'm happy to cast an eye over for grammar and spelling and make necessary adjustments! Likewise, formatting or spacing issues I can help out!
Comment here or nudge me on msn or by vm on SS!
Nate has just finished his second term at Hogwarts, and the trains have just arrived! Nate will have another 4 years there, so he is still happy.
So seemed like fun so I did another one of these blog thing a bobs!
Kylie is now the Cheif Werewolf Operative of the Department of Creatures at the Minsitry of Magic!
We were talking recently about adding stuff to the first page to help with page creation, tagging, and navigation. I know new people to the wiki feel sort of overwhelmed at first, so this might help with that. But even more importantly, I'm wondering if there are rules or suggestions we could add that would make things easier for YOU guys who have already created a few pages.
So any thoughts? What would you like to see on the front page?
This is a really cool idea, high five to whoever who thought of it!
Its a really col way to learn about someone elses character or expand on your character!
Cant wait tell I finish my charries bios!
Just got sorted on Snitchseeker..Narumi is a Gryffindor! Cant wait to start participating in what seems like a cool Hogwarts RPG! ♥
hey guy's its not really a blong thing i just wanted to know everyones fav LOTR HP and THE HUNGER GAMES
If you procastinate on your character's bio it will take forever, and all that inspiration you had for your character will disapper to, and then you have to think of all of it over again!
Writing a character's story is a long process, cause their story never ends!
I have set my deadline for Nerida's deadline for Monday, hopefully I finish!
hey guys. i just got on here and made a page for my character samantha. i've seen wiki pages for everything else, but never really though of one for snitchseeker. it's a pretty awesome idea. i might be making one for my rp site with my co-owner. i'm pretty excited.
I know Halloween has gone, but at my school they had Dress Up as Your Favourite Book Character Day! They really need to shorten the name. Anyway, it was loads of fun, because I suprised everybody by dressing up as Luna Lovegood. Everybody thought I would be Hermione, but then I realised: she wasn't my favourite book character! Luna was! And I couldn't just ruin the entire purpose of that day by dressing up as my second favourite book character, could I? No. I like to answer my own questions, right? Right.
The spectrespecs, for anybody who would like to know, are actually glasses with the words "Happy" and "Birthday" where "Spectre" and "Specs" now are. Oh, and the Quibbler is printed-out images of the front and back cover, taped onto an o…
This blog post will be about how much I love Australian animals! My favourite Aussie animal is probably the koalas, because they look so downright cuddly and they don't make a lot of noise. Neither does a kangaroo, but kangas can be pretty dangerous...
If I had to choose an Aussie animal to be forever silenced, it would definitely be the kookaburras. Kookaburras look nice enough, with their clean brown and white feathers and everything, but they make such a racket! It always sounds like they have a hilarious in-joke with all of the other kookaburras, and they just laugh at it all day long.
The funniest looking of Australian fauna has got to be the Frogmouth bird. It always looks like an annoyed grandfather who had just been woken up from a n…
As the title says I love Brittana and obviously Glee! On SS I am Eve. but here I am evatilde. A few of my goals are, are; To get on the Slytherin Quidditch Team as Beater and read the Hunger Games!
Well, ever experienced preferring to take a nap instead of doing your projects because the deadline is set tomorrow? You have, right? That's what I'm doing right now. PROCRASTINATING..
I'm supposed to finish Beezus' bio but I'm getting tempted of watching SHINee videos. *sigh*
I know. I know..I'm still a long way until I finish the bio but if I don't procrastinate, it might be done faster right? RIGHT?
I'm just letting everybody know that my charrie Vlimia is officially a Ravenclaw! She is not very shy, so don't be alarmed if she randomly comes up to your character and introduces herself. That's how she meets most of her friends. :D
My account on SnitchSeeker is GinevraWeasley, but that username was taken on here, so I'm going by EmeliaWeasley - since Emelia is my real name. I have made a page for my School RPG Character, Vlimia Maze, here so if you want to know about her, check it out!
this is a blog post about something I like but also dislike, The Hunger Games.
I absolutely adore the Hunger Games, it was one of the greatest book series I have ever read. Though Suzanne Collins had a bit of a J.K. Rowling approach to killing characters "hmm, people like you and you're an important character but not the main one, I think I'll kill you" I swear in the Hunger Games, if you're nice YOU DIE, unless you're Peeta Mellark.
Anyway, I just hate who they've casted for the movie. The whole THG fandom had a cast made up for them and they just pick some randoms. I love Josh Hutcherson, he is adorable and a brilliant actor but he will NEVER be Peeta in my eyes, mainly because I heard he wasn't going to have blonde hair the whole way thro…
Will anyone read this? No clue. Anyway as the title stats I am PureBlood64 from SnitchSeeker most commenly known as Jess though. I RP Katelyn Star, the hyper Slytherin you have probably heard about, and I adore RPing her
Thanks to Pixie for the idea. I've started an article for Hogwarts, and I welcome anyone to edit it with additional info. If you have a suggestion and don't want to post, you can share it with me. I do ask that you read the note on the page, because we don't want to repeat information from canon that is available elsewhere.
Yup. I think that about covers it.
I am not sure how many people will actually see this, but potions are almost done! One thing is that the formatting is not consistant with all potions (IE sometimes the level is edited out and other fields) so I am not sure what the standard is for that.
Anyway, only two more professors to go through and then those are done.
ALSO! For those copying and pasting from SS, please do not past in the Visial editing window. When you do that the coding from SS gets pasted as well, which means there is A LOT of extra coding in the Source are that isn't needed and makes it harder for future edits. Just something to keep in mind since I have had to edit these codes and rewrite a few pages because of it.
- waves* So, I think the Herbology reference is done except for the water plants, I haven't checked those yet, aaaand I wanted a reason to try this blod thing. *touches* And sorry for not adding pics for the last few since I'm going to work in fifteen mins and I'm still so SS-ized. xD
- Water plants are done and that makes Herbology done, education-wise. ;)
This is noteworthy because it took forever. Thanks to all who helped. :)
Hey, my friends! I really wanted an excuse to try out the blog post function, and what better topic to blog about than a chance to talk to all the great members who are visiting, posting, and editing our new wiki (THANKS, LUKE!). The thing is... this is your wiki as much as it is Snitchseeker's, and if you have a great idea for a page we should add or a category that is needed or you want some help with how to edit something... let us know! Leave me a message and we'll do what I can do make it happen.
