Doesn't this article look like List of Passwords?

It is possible that we can split this article into two, List of Passwords and Password. Does anyone agree with me? -- Madam Hooch250px-Hogwarts coa(Which Broomstick)

Elizabeth Burke's Portrait

Facta, non verba[1] (latin for Deeds, not words) are you sure thats right as our schools motto is deeds not words and in latin that res non verba not facta non verba —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Miniwally (talkcontribs) 02:10, 9 May 2009.

I found these translations of both "res, non verba" and "facta, non verba"
Res, non verba: From res ("things", "facts") + nōn ("not") + verba ("words"). Literally meaning "things, not words" or "facts instead of words" but referring to that "actions be used instead of words" (or "actions speak louder than words").
Facta, non verba: From facta ("deed", "act", "fact") + nōn ("not") + verba ("words"). Literally meaning "deeds, not words" or "acts instead of words" but referring to that "actions be used instead of words" (or "actions speak louder than words").
So, the sentences mean the same thing. -- Seth Cooper Moon (Owl Post) 01:31, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Password or spell?

For the secret passage guarded by the One-Eyed Witch, dissendium, is really a spell to open it rather than a password, isn't it? -- CocoaZen 20:34, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

Unknown - Lemon Drop

When was lemon drop ever used? The only time I recall "lemon drop" being used in the series is the American version of Philosopher's Stone, where Dumbledore offers McGonagall a "lemon drop". AlastorMoody 21:33, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
