It's not useless

This article is not useless as it is a normal thing, like other articles. ---Danniesen 5 September 2011, 16:22 (Denmark)

Merge?

There's an edit war about the delete tag on this page. Why not merge it with Electricity? I don't participate to this war, but I don't think that a entire page is useful. Merge could be a way to keep the information if it's not useless... --   Famini    talk    contribs   14:39, September 15, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think it should be merged because it's technically non-canon. In the book Harry and Hagrid fly to Tonks' parents house before apparating to the Burrow. Therfore Voldemort never has the oppertunity to destroy the pylon, which makes the article somewhat redundant. Deleting it outright would be far more appropriate.

I'm agree it's non canon, but in the BTS it could be at least mentionned... Other facts (as Leanne's affiliation or Lavender's death) in circumstances non canon (potions with students who are not there and other years or bite by Greyback) are finally considered as canon here, it's very hard to understand canonicity here... That's why there was so much discussion. "Omission is not a statment" could always become a facility: beware of that... It's not stated that Voldemort has not destroyed a pylon so even if circumstances are not the same, it's very hard (compared with other facts listed) to say Leanne is a 6th year Hupp, Lavender's dead and "non non non jamais oh mon dieu" Voldemort has never this opportunity. There's two bridges in HP6? Why not two cakes in HP2 because "omission is not a statement". What I want to say is perhaps not very clear because I don't speak very well, it's not an attack at all. --   Famini    talk    contribs   18:01, September 15, 2011 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind keeping the article, as long it is stated in the BTS section that Voldemort's destruction of them during the Battle of the Seven Potters is definitely non-canon (i.e. Dartford or Bluewater). It counts as a direct contradiction to the books; in that scene they were much higher than depicted in the film, in fact, the book says "the lights down on the ground still seemed remote as stars". As distant as they were to the ground, having been flying across a field with electicity pylons was impossible. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:32, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
I've rewritten the article. Hopefully it is more informative now. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 17:10, September 16, 2011 (UTC)
