Wonderbook games

Should the Wonderbook games be considered Tier One or Tier Two? Personally, I'd place them under Tier One, since the new information in them comes directly from J. K. Rowling, even if the manner in which that information is presented (i.e., the video games) was created by another party. I sort of consider it to be the equivalent of Pottermore, in that JKR wrote all the new information, but the website was designed by other people. Starstuff (Owl me!) 17:22, March 11, 2016 (UTC)

If the information comes from J.K. Rowling, then regardless of the method of presentation, they're the top tier source. J.K Rowling's word is law and it always supercedes everything else. --Sajuuk 17:24, March 11, 2016 (UTC)
Except JKR has said she wrote the information on the Famous Wizard Cards. Which, presumably, means the real-world trading cards that were released with the licensed product Chocolate Frogs they used to have, as well as the Famous Wizard Cards featured in the early video games. But both the video games and the trading cards have always been under Tier Three, and I'm hesitant to shake up that order. Starstuff (Owl me!) 17:31, March 11, 2016 (UTC)
Unless J.K. Rowling provided the full content (of informations) or declared considering them canon herself I guess we can't put them on Tier-One. She apparently provided new contents mixed with things she did not (like for the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter[1]) but because we can't determine/separate exactly what is this tier-one content mixed with tier-two content we should chose carefulness and consider them tier-two (or create another tier?). If one day it is specified what information she really created then these informations will have to be considered tier-one (just like for Cursed Child, since she only contributed to the original story, only the story is tier-one canon and the rest like the dialogues, is not).--FrenchPygmyPuff (talk) 16:57, November 25, 2016 (UTC)
I just found this link that credits Rowling for "Words and Creative Thoughts" on Wonderbook: Book of Spells. FrenchPygmyPuff (talk) 22:11, December 6, 2016 (UTC)

What about adding The original Famous Wizard cards "Tier One: J. K. Rowling", etc.

What about:
