Should there be a set guideline for content in each of the House pages? They seem very disorganised in comparison with one another.

I don't want to be nitpicky and cause more problems than it works, but I'd tentatively like to recommend adding a "Cleanup" tag to the article.
While it is fairly neat, there are some minor errors that could be tweaked, and a couple sentences that are, in my mind, half-canon and half-fan theory/perception (for instance, saying that the Hat uses students' preferred traits instead of their own by pointing out Crabbe and Goyle - who, I might add, turned against Draco in the battle - being stupid/lazy yet Slytherin.
Behind the scenes: Primary colors
- Primary colours are the root from which every colour can be made by mixing them. The primary colours are blue, yellow and red. When you mix yellow and blue, you get green, making green a secondary colour. RGB is separate from that model - it is an additive colour model where by mixing everything together, you make lighter colours, ending with white. It subtracts instead of adding, unlike primary colours. So Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Hufflepuff have primary colours while Slytherin only has a secondary colour. I hope that helps! --Kates39 (talk) 11:27, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
- It's not a British thing, it's the difference between primary colors for pigments (such as paint or ink) and primary colors for light (such as spotlights or computer screens). In a physics class you're likely talking about the light spectrum so would be using RGB primaries while in an art class you'd use magenta, cyan, and yellow primaries (commonly simplified as red, blue, yellow). It makes sense to use the primary pigments when describing house colors as they were defined by physical painted emblems. --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:16, December 19, 2016 (UTC)
