Do we need this?

Do we really need both this page and HPW:CANON? I don't see why the two can't be merged, but I thought I'd ask if there was a reason here first before slapping on a delete/merge template. 1337star 03:25, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

I also think the two pages could be merged. FrenchPygmyPuff (talk) 10:03, January 15, 2017 (UTC)
While the original suggestion is over 5 years old and possibly not an active idea, I think it would be better to modify the article to cover not only the wiki's 3-tier approach to canon, but HP-Lexicon's JKR-only canon policy, the question of CC's canonicity, the notion of head-canons, etc. That is to expand the article to differentiate it from the canon policy instead of merging them. --Ironyak1 (talk) 13:15, January 15, 2017 (UTC)
Exactly. This article should be more descriptive of the several views on canon and of possible problems with our own take on it, rather like the Fanon article. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 14:08, January 15, 2017 (UTC)
