Appearances are supposed to be in "real world" books, i.e. why for every character they are listed as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, etc. Those are not "in-universe" books, they are "real" books. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 21:23, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Good point. I put Quidditch Through the Ages without thinking. It should be the real version of the book. Perhaps coding it like this Quidditch Through the Ages would be better? - Cavalier One 21:44, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I wasn't sure if I should show the difference or not, so I figured I'd err on showing it. Although I guess it should be italicized, it is a book afterall. -- DarkJedi613 (Talk) 00:45, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
I've changed all the appearances to this: Quidditch Through the Ages, and will continue to use it for all articles from the book. I'll apply the same to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well. - Cavalier One 09:32, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Birth date

Any source or explanation for how the birth date of "1940s or before" was determined? Thanks --Ironyak1 (talk) 02:29, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

oops, that was me who added it. We know that Quidditch through the ages was originally released in 1952, and I think we can be sure that he did not write the book as a two-year old. We can remove it.--Rodolphus (talk) 07:04, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

Not at all, it's exactly the sort of info I was looking for. Nice find on the publication date for QTTA to help pin it down (I added a note here to explain the logic). The early publication date is going to make it difficult for Bagman to add his first-edition sounding blurb but someone will figure it out (hopefully ;) --Ironyak1 (talk) 16:42, May 2, 2016 (UTC)
