Because this article is nominated for Featured, i added some more info about Krum's great personality, including specific examples of him being humble, considerate and caring. I tried to add some more detail to other things too. Mafalda Hopkirk 07:09, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Mafalda, no offense, but I undid your revision. Please do not remove the appearances section, and refer to the Harry Potter Wiki:Layout guide for article layout. Personality and traits come after the main body of the text, and the introduction is meant to be an overview of the character. If you have any problems with this, please come to my talk page. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 07:35, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
No, i have no problem with this, I was just trying to be of help =) Mafalda Hopkirk 07:37, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Trust me, you're already a big help, going through some of the larger articles and redoing them! I just thought I'd explain my reasoning behind the revert since I don't want to discourage you from editing as you're one of the more active editors to join us in a while. Please, keep up the good work! - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 07:49, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
You're so sweet! I appreciate your help in understanding how layouts should be. Mafalda Hopkirk 07:51, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Been a while since I was called sweet ... anyway, if you follow the layout guide and rewrite articles that need rewriting (and there are a few), why not put them up for Featured Article yourself? We need quality articles. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 07:56, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

I love it how in the Deathly Hallows he says "What is the point of being an international Quidditch player if all the good-looking girls are already taken?"!!!


I don't know if this is because I'm clueless about something, but there are parts of this page that are not being displayed - the "behind the scenes" section, "references" section, etc. Also, it isn't showing up in all the categories it should be placed in. Whether there's a problem or I'm missing something, could someone let me know? Oread 15:33, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

You forgot the "/" in one of the ref tags. - Cavalier One(Wizarding Wireless Network) 15:40, 7 March 2008 (UTC)


I think it would've been kind of nice if he and Her-Me-Own-Ninny had gotten married...

It's "erm..." + "vs." + "why" + "n" + "e"! 15:34, December 15, 2010 (UTC)


I think someone should add a relationship to Karkaroff and cleanup the two I wrote, please. --Hcoknhoj 19:37, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Yes and other people like Harry Potter.--Station7 19:42, January 10, 2010 (UTC)


Just wondering, does anyone have a reference for "Dumb Krum" and "Bulgarian Bonbon"? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 20:28, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

I think both of them are in the film adaptation of Goblet of Fire. Fred and George tease Ron and call Krum "Dumb Krum" in the scene immediately before the Death Eater riot at the Quidditch World Cup campsite; and "Bulgarian Bonbon" comes from Rita Skeeter's article on the Daily Prophet about Hermione. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 21:26, January 18, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Seth; I just wanted to make sure they were canon, especially seeing how "dumb" can sometimes be taken as an insult. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 21:34, January 18, 2013 (UTC)


Is it ever said where in Bulgaria he came from? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 19:52, October 26, 2013 (UTC)

Not that I can ever recall seeing, no. ProfessorTofty (talk) 19:58, October 26, 2013 (UTC)

Birthday Month

Regarding Krum's month of birth: should the May-August bracken be expanded to March-August? Rowling's recent Pottermore publication regarding The Quidditch World Cup 2014 describes Krum as 38 years old at the time of publication. Lysander Scamander (talk) 23:07, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

SORRY I've got that completely wrong, it should be prior to March 1976. Maths is not my strong point! Lysander Scamander (talk) 23:09, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

I thought it meant he would be 38 at the time of the opening games, in May 2014. Therefore his birthday would be early May 1976. But perhaps I was mistaken. --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 23:14, March 23, 2014 (UTC)

Should we add to the article that he was born between early March and 20 May? Ginny Potter wroze that he was 39 on 20 May.--Rodolphus (talk) 16:20, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

But she wrote that he was thirty-eight, not thirty-nine, on 20 May.
In August 1994 he was eighteen; in late May 1994 he was still eighteen. Therefore his birthday was between late May and early August.
According to this wiki (and to the Lexicon) his birthday was after 24 May; however, if he was thirty-eight on 20 May 2014, he must have been born sometime before then in 1976, no? --Hunnie Bunn (talk) 16:45, May 23, 2014 (UTC)
