Can I ask that are the only fictional places the ones that say "Fictional"? Polarbearcub (talk) 19:50, December 27, 2013 (UTC)Polly

No, because that would directly violate our policies by making the article out of universe. Here on the Harry Potter Wiki, we talk about things in the books as though they are real. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 20:01, December 27, 2013 (UTC)
I see. Then how do I know which places are the fictional ones? Polarbearcub (talk) 20:19, December 27, 2013 (UTC)Polly
There are tags on the pages for the real (non-fiction) places, while fictional places do not have the tags. A good example of this is this page, which has the tag, and this page, which does not. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 20:42, December 27, 2013 (UTC)

Name: Britain or UK?

Major quibble here - I'm actually quite surprised that no one has brought it up yet. The page is named Great Britain, and the opening summary describe it as 'a large island' - implying it is about the island. However, the page later suddenly switches from being geographical to political, talking about the UK, the PM and Northern Ireland. It's not hard: Britain is the island, the United Kingdom is the sovereign state. Is this page solely about the island of Great Britain, or is it about the UK? If the former is true all references to Ireland and the UK should be removed, and if it is the latter then it should definitely be renamed as United Kingdom.

Thoughts?
