A reference

I think there's a reference to owl post in White Knight Chronicles: the party uses owl-like creatures known as bigelows to communicate with others, but in more advanced form: projecting images—holograms—allowing the party to contact with a certain person (I reduce the spoilers of WKC to minimum if someone didn't play that great game).

No offense, but that is relevant to this wiki how exactly? -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 17:16, June 18, 2012 (UTC)
Well, on Final Fantasy Wiki on which I'm far more active than here, we collect information about Final Fantasy references in other media, and so I thought that the bigelows were kinda similar to owl post system from Harry Potter series. It's one of my "traits" that I see "references" which may not be references, but just a coincidence. But yeah, if it's not relevant to the owl post than don't let's don't include it on the article. Also, talk pages are to help on discussing such things, aren't they?—Kaimi (999,999 CP/5 TP) 17:45, June 18, 2012 (UTC)
I don't think it's referential unless it can be proven that the idea was specifically inspired by the Harry Potter series - I get the feeling Potter probably isn't the first or last series to use this specific idea. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by ProfessorTofty (talkcontribs).
I agree, of course. And I also wonder if that idea was inspired by the Harry Potter series, too.Degrassigirl07 (talk) 21:37, April 5, 2013 (UTC)

Logistics Question

Where do the owls get mail that is addressed to their owners? For example, where did she get the Firebolt that Sirius bought for Harry? 71.235.36.226 03:39, May 23, 2013 (UTC)

In this case, we don't know exactly. Honestly, the whole sequence of events involving the Firebolt is a bit strange-- Sirius stated that he used Harry's name but told them to take the money from his own vault, but why Gringott's would accept an order specifying the withdrawal of funds from the vault of a wanted criminal without setting up any red flags is rather strange.
