Q: Was Dolores Umbridge present at the Battle of Hogwarts?

Ken_To_2018Did Dolores Umbridge participate in the Battle of Hogwarts?

 
Nevermind, JBJ.
Because he was dead. He wasn’t captured, as far as I know, just killed outright. No magic can save you from that. Also, you have been asked this on pretty much all your questions now: please title your questions meaningfully. In particular, DO NOT title all your questions by a book name and a character name. That is not an adequate title. — Janus Bahs Jacquet Aug 29 at 1:11
 
SQB
Almost worth a mod warning, I'd say.
 
Also
You've posted a lot of questions in the last few days, and on pretty much every question of yours I've seen you've been given the same feedback. If you want to continue to contribute to this community, please start taking that feedback on board. It's not fair to everybody else to expect them to fix these issues when you've been told multiple times already. "Book title - Character name" is not a suitable question title. Ask one question - or several extremely closely related questions - per post (just being about the same character is not "extremely closely related"). — Anthony Grist Aug 21 at 10:38
That is a bit harsh of a phrasing, still.
(even if it's true that they're rather "obvious" questions)
 
SQB
Please try phrasing your question title as an actual question. That would greatly improve your questions. So far, other users have edited it for you. Please try doing it yourself next time. — SQB 10 secs ago
 
The phrasing seems fine to me, if they ignore polite feedback you have to do something else

Worth a meta post, perhaps? "What should be done when a user keeps posting questions without meaningful titles?"
 
@SQB aren't there questions ban where you have to salvage your previous QAs or stuff?
 
There's two new users who are similar with their titles, one has learnt (not great but getting better) just give them time

@TheLethalCarrot ok

That's the automatic process anyway
 
@Jenayah They probably have too many good question for the auto-bans to kick in.
You gotta have real problem coming up with reasonable questions to trip over those. And when that happens, you're usually beyond salvation.
 
@NapoleonWilson ok so just wait and see then
 
(Though, only the moderators can tell if he already has more deleted ones that the ones I can see.) ;-)
 
@NapoleonWilson I don't think so
 
@NapoleonWilson I got a Q ban on SO when I started out, came back from it though... if you put enough effort in it's easy to get out of it

@TheLethalCarrot lol really?
 
Yup was a new programmer and asked basic, no research Qs and didn't really know how they site worked
 
^^
 
@TheLethalCarrot I sometimes get confused with the various mechanisms for question-banning. There's also the rate-limiting that gets worse with the quality of your posts but is ultimately temporary. And then there's the "we don't accept questions anymore" (or are they the same?). And I'm never quite sure which is the one moderators can see.
 
The one I got was the too many bad you're banned, try again in 6 months
If that is good, on your way again
Can't remember if I was rate limited before that

Check the first revision of each of their questions.

@SQB Is it a printed and bound book? Does it have (parts of) an inner colophon page at front or back, front or back cover or spine, dust jacket, inner title page, page headers that are the same in most of the book, binding debug information printed once per uncut sheet as printed in tiny print? If so, look for parts of biographical information there and then search library catalogs.
Otherwise, do you have preface or appendixes mentioning titles or names or references, table of contents, chapter titles? Search for those on the internet. Otherwise, where did you get the book? If library, can you try asking the library? If book store, ask them or try to find a receipt.
:-)
 
SQB
Or maybe read the title on the front cover.
 
@SQB Yes, I mentioned front cover with biographical information printed on it.
If it's not a printed book, then what is it and how are you reading it? Is it a CHM file in the windows help viewer (that's an ugly special case, it's not willing to tell you the file path easily, even though it clearly must know)?
But, except for old books that never had one, a front colophon page is better than a front cover, because the front cover can be empty if the book cover got replaced, or it can have fancy graphic design that makes it harder to read the title.

Aug 24 at 20:39, by Alex
@Jenayah I've read a handful of articles (usually linked in answers here). I more object to it in principle.
 
@Alex there's not a monopoly of thought ;)
 
@Jenayah If I had independently thought of the structure of you answer and I also had additional proofs then I would probably post my own answer. But if you had not posted your answer I wouldn't have thought to answer the question this way (even with the additional proofs). Thus, it doesn't seem right for me to use your work/idea to make my own answer.

@Alex oh, ok! I thought you had an example of a former minister being sacked or stuff - hey, that's a good question actually. Can a Minister be sacked?
Like, by a council or stuff, not just resigning because of poor image
What is this Wizengamot thing again?
 
@Jenayah Fudge was: “My dear Prime Minister, you can’t honestly think I’m still Minister of Magic after all this? I was sacked three days ago!
 
@Alex arf my bad
I thought he resigned
 
@Jenayah Well he does say in the very next sentence: The whole Wizarding community has been screaming for my resignation for a fortnight. So maybe it was some kind of combination.
 
@Alex oh, so it's blurry
The former question stands, then. Is there any legal confirmation he was sacked?
Answers would probably be Pottermore, though. I don't remember another Minister than Fudge, Scrimgeour or Kingsley.

9:17 PM
@Jenayah Does it matter? A minister like that almost always formally resigns before he's sacked. If he's not the head of the government (minister-president or prime minister), that's usually preceded by the head stating "I have my full confidence in <name of minister>." and various assurances that the current problem isn't serious.
 
@b_jonas well, can't say that's wrong
 
Then the head of government gets the resignation letter from his drawer that the minister had pre-signed and given him, adds a date, and announces that the minister has chosen to resign and that the head accepts the resignation, preferably with the head of the government immediately naming the succeeding minister.
When there's no title of any minister to put the blame on (the minister itself doesn't matter, only his position), then the head of the government resigns, which is a bit more hectic, but it's still surrounded by calm announcements that there is nothing wrong and the next government will form very soon and there won't be any hiccups from the change.
 
@b_jonas Does the Ministry of Magic have succession laws?
 
@Alex Probably. There's a whole building with apparently lots of bureaucracy. It would be strange of them not to have laws for that sort of stuff.
 
@b_jonas don't forget the "fall guy affair" that is suddenly brought up to the attention of whatever media and eclipses the rest
 
9:23 PM
But you'd have to ask Hermione.
@Jenayah What's a "fall guy affair"?
 
@b_jonas a diversion, where the government sacrifices a pawn to the media while blurry stuff happens in the background
 
We don't even know how the Minister appointing works. Fudge was elected five years prior to Order of the Phoenix but there's never talk of a new election. Does the term last for life?
 
Or throws a punchline to play a bit with the love/hate while a Minister resigns and tries to explain how screwed up the government he's leaving is.
 
@Jenayah The pawn is usually the minister. He's usually not the one who has anything to do with the problem, though you may find a few lucky exceptions depending on your political opinions.
 
So screwed-up, the guy announces his resignation on the radio rather before he makes it official.

Whether it's an election by the public, by Sr. Ministry officials, or even the Wizengamot is unclear. ...

 
@Mithrandir It just says that he succeeded Fudge.
And Dumbledore just says that he replaced Fudge.
@Jenayah So essentially, we know nothing.

was sacked three days ago! The whole Wizarding community has been screaming for my
resignation for a fortnight. I’ve never known them so united in my whole term of office!” said
Fudge, with a brave attempt at a smile.
 
(Most people can agree that one of the healthcare ministers of Hungary was to blame for the worst healthcare reform of the republic ever, the dispute is just which minister that was.)
 
> “Sir, I saw in the Daily Prophet that Fudge has been sacked…”
“Correct,” said Dumbledore, now turning up a steep side street. “He has been replaced, as I am
sure you also saw, by Rufus Scrimgeour, who used to be Head of the Auror office.”
“Is he… Do you think he’s good?” asked Harry.

personality than Cornelius.”

@Jenayah Qualifications required? For a minister? AHAHAHAHAHAHA
 
@Mithrandir But those don't tell us how the Minister is chosen or how long it lasts.
 
right
 
@b_jonas funny title eh? :p
 
Ahem... he has to be a legal adult.
And not currently specifically forbidden from holding a government office by a decision of a court of law.
And if he claims to have qualifications on his public CV, they'd better be real, not lies in his CV or received in some dishonest way, or at least nobody else shall notice and reveal the problem during their term. That's a mistake at least three high position government officials have resigned to.
There was Schmitt Pál, president of the republic 2010--2012, who had a PhD dissertation, only someone figured that just like many typical people with a degree, his dissertation contained large unsourced copy-and-pasted sections. He had to resign of course, but the government cleverly tried to also use the case to get rid of a political opponent,
the university rector Tulassay Tivadar, who happened to be presiding the university that had been merged with the university that had issued the PhD degree 10 years ago, despite that that was way before the time of the then current rector and obviously nothing to do with him.
 
Never have I seen so much unnecessary pedantry over such a simple question. I’ve edited my question accordingly. Hopefully it’s now understandable even to a chair. — Conrad Bennish Jr 11 mins ago

Q: If a Shinigami and a Human were to have a child, what would they be called

NinjaOff beatGamingSimply, you can call it a Shinigami/Human Hybrid, Half Shinigami, Half Human. But if it were to have a proper name. What would you call it?

 
It is worth noting that Schmitt delayed resigning from the position of president of republic until right after the university has decided to nullify his PhD title.

A second case was some major who plain lied about some language exam qualification he had in his cv, then tried to explain it saying that the ghost-writer of the cv he signed has made a simple error or something.
The whole president of the republic position doesn't seem to work out anyway. We should just have named Göncz Árpád president or king for life, with only nominal duties, leave the position vacant but unnecessary after he died, and establish a separate smaller but important position as the top-level commander of the armed forces.
 
@Alex Why doesn't this show my name if it's a reply?
 
Most of the other presidents didn't get into such ridiculous scandals as Schmitt Pál, but they didn't seem to help much either.

@Alex Scratch that, apparently when the comment is a link it never shows the name.
 
Having a king for ceremonial positions can be nice if there's a suitable person, but it just sucks if we only have fillers.
At least we can be glad we avoid Torgyán becoming president of the republic. There was half a year when everyone was scared by that possibility.
I don't hate Torgyán, but we don't turn a clown to a king in real life, that's for fairy tales and fiction.
