Should people already categorized under their houses be removed from this list? The houses are already a category within in this category... -- Freakatone Talk 23:19, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

Well yes, since the houses are under this category.--Matoro183 (Talk) 23:32, 20 September 2008 (UTC)
I think this category should serve as an all-inclusive list of everyone known to have attended Hogwarts. If students are listed only in the House sub-categories, then readers will be unable to browse through a complete list of students, which is why I think that cross-listing a character in both Category:Hogwarts students and a House sub-category is preferable to listing only in a House sub-cat.

Canon vs. not Canon

Is there any way that another subcatagory could be added? I, as well as some others, believe that canon can only come from J. K. Rowling, meaning from the books or from interviews, etc. Most of the names on this list seem to be from only the movies and video games. Is there any way that a subcategory can be made that only includes what I consider to be canon? I would really like to not have to sift through to find students from my interpretation of canon. Thanks for your consideration. Daphne Spuffydaffy 23:29, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

According to our definition of canon, as set forth in our Canon Policy, if information is presented in the films that does not directly affect or contradict the book Canon, then that information can and should be treated as Canon itself. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:43, August 13, 2011 (UTC)
