Rename

Should this be renamed "Middle Courtyard"? After all, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is more recent than the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:05, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

Done. I think these names (The Quad, Middle Courtyard) are better since the filmakers (the people who created the courtyards) worked in the Theme Park and helped building the castle. However, the Transfiguration Courtyard name is given by the video game makers, who named it based on the location of the Transfiguration classroom.--El Profeta Vespertino 16:54, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

i dont think it should be renamed as that tapestry is just like consept art work that was made after the courtyard was identified on the video games 94.15.182.6 18:07, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

i dont think it should because that tapestry was created after the the yards were named on the videogames and the games name every were Mattyb2k9 18:09, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

The move was per policy, because the films are more cannon than the video games.--Rodolphus 18:11, June 18, 2010 (UTC)

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a second-level canon tier. The games are third-level. Besides it was released after the games. When there's conflicting statements within the same canon tier, the most recent is deemed canon. See the canon policy. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:14, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
In my opinion, I don't think that this and the Paved Courtyard should have been renamed as they don't actually appear at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and that layout of Hogwarts isn't actually very acurate and all the areas of the catle are mixed up anyway.

Whether the areas physically appear on the park or not is irrelevant; they appear, after all, on the tapestry. The accuracy of the castle's layout is irrelevant to this matter too, as it doesn't compromise the canonicity of the labels. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:31, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Which Courtyard?

I found this in the Gallery and it's labelled as Transfiguration courtyard. But I NEVER see this courtyard in the films. Could it be another courtyard?

Is it the Middle Courtyard?

Looks like the courtyard that Harry is seen walking in with Hedwig during a snowy period of the first film. It had a dried-out fountain in the middle. --DCLM (talk) 14:31, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
But why did they change it in the middle of the film? And you can see the difference between the mystery courtyard and the winter-scene one (below the first image) Alan Woodbridge (talk) 11:38, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Different cloister windows

Okay. The windows change it all. --DCLM (talk) 13:16, May 30, 2013 (UTC)
