Could someone pull the classroom number from the source image for this and add it to the infobox? I can't make it out with enough certainty (100? 104? 109?). Thanks! -- 1337star (talk) 02:00, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

I think it's "Class 10a." But it's not really legible even when I zoom in to my original scanned image at its full size. Starstuff (Owl me!) 02:09, October 29, 2011 (UTC)


Is it really impossible to reconcile the existance of a Xylomancy course at Hogwarts School with the information from the books? I think it is possible that this and Magical Theory are optional classes not every first year takes; in real life, it is often the case when optionals which you don't attend are in your timetable (there were "French", "Religious Education" and "Remedial Maths" timeslots in my high school timetable which I did not attend). See, for instance, the presence of a "Quidditch Practice" timeslot there, and we know for a fact Harry was the only first year in the school to take that class. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 16:52, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

Good argument, we should change it then.--Rodolphus 17:03, October 29, 2011 (UTC)

I was under the impression that each student's schedule was tailor-made for them. After all, why would "Quidditch Practice" even be on a first year schedule if it was meant as a generic schedule for all students? Certainly "over a century" of first-years being prohibited from trying out would be enough to not even list it anymore. That said, I originally wrote this article from the point of view that it was a valid, canon Hogwarts course, just not one Harry ever took. The existence of special courses outside the normal curriculum is supported by Pottermore, so Xylomancy and Magical Theory could fall into this. -- 1337star (talk) 17:29, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
