I think that it's kind of strange that the title just says 'Wizards' and not witches. Scarletmoon579 14:49, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

The main generic name for a specific group in nearly always the same as the male variant; wizards can refer to both wizards and witches, just as mankind refers to both men and women. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 15:34, February 14, 2010 (UTC)
What I find problematic about this article's current title is how it does not follow the singular-form article titling convention, e.g. Broomstick, Centaur, Goblin, Muggle, Owl, etc. We could use the singular form, "wizard," which, just like "man," can mean either "male person" or "human." However, if gender inclusivity is a concern, we could opt for the collective noun "wizardkind," which is used in the introduction of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

I must say I agree. Since we have Merpeople, wizardkind, said by both Gilderoy Lockhart and in The Tales of Beedle the Bard, should be used for this article. -- Bee T. Are50px(Call me!!) 13:34, January 15, 2011 (UTC)

Moved the page to Wizardkind based on the precedent set by Merpeople. Starstuff (Owl me!) 21:08, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

Page-top Quote

Not that it isn't a good quote, but should it really be something by J.K. Rowling? I thought page-top quotes for in-universe articles were supposed to be something by one of the characters, or else it puts it out-of-universe. ProfessorTofty 05:14, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

Weirdness

Well I am just saying this, so why are their like only five school for wizards in europe, also why are they like nearly all related or something, I mean that most "Pure-Bloods" do inbreed.

Image

Since we've changed the images for other beings like vampires and centaurs to the images used on a question from the sorting quiz on Pottermore, do we want to do the same here? They aren't part of that question, but there are several images of "generic" wizards used for many questions. -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 01:10, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
