Incorrect Release Date

According to the page for Armando Dippet, he died 1956. Rita Skeeter, according to her page, was born 1951, meaning, she would be either five or six at the time of his death.

This article states that this book may have be written shortly after his death, but given the ages of the two respective persons, this is greatly unlikely, as Skeeter would have been no more than six at the time. Also, there is no way this book was released anywhere near 1995, as the infobox seems to imply. Though we cannot know an exact date, it's much more likely between 1971 and 1980, if not a little later. Regardless of the exact date, it would have at least been 15 years after the death of Dippet.

I apologize if I made any mistakes in my reasoning

Good catch. That sentence, as well as a few others than were in the article, were holdouts from when information from an article made for the Chamber of Secrets film, which indicated that Dippet was still alive in the early '90s, was considered canon. It no longer is, and therefore that info, as you pointed out, is no longer valid. I've made the appropriate changes. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 19:49, December 26, 2014 (UTC)
