Wrock band articles

Make sure to include an external link for each of the bands. If they don't have a webpage, or at least a MySpace or Twitter page, they may just be fanon. - Nick O'Demus 13:29, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

I've found a few on Google, and I've added a few links to some Wrock genre websites on the article page. I'll help look for some of the websites and add the links. - Nick O'Demus 01:28, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
You might want to hold off on creating any more Wrock band articles for a little while. It turns out there are a LOT more of them than we realized. A similar discussion came up when I asked about creating articles for the unofficial Harry Potter guidebooks (like the ones listed on and Seth Cooper and Cavalier One both said that only the "notable" ones should get their own articles. So just having a MySpace page may not be enough. We may need to set some guidelines. - Nick O'Demus 02:18, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
I agree with Nick O'Demus, Seth and Cavalier One. The only "notable" ones or popularly recognise should get their own articles like Harry and the Potters for example. --ÈnŔîčö DCRavenclawcrest(Send me an Owl!) 10:39, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Okay, I did some looking online, and I found some events and the bands that were involved might be considered "notable". Take a look and let me know what you think. These are just my preliminary findings, so sorry if it's a bit disorganized. Seth Cooper also recommended that maybe we should open a forum discussion about this. - Nick O'Demus 11:43, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Talk:Penetration Spell

This article should by redirected to "Penetration Curse" instead of "Penetration Spell". —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

OMG SOmoene broke threw Protego Horribilis, Flitwick even said that they could only keep the Death Eaters out for a limited amount of time, and voldemort is probably the only one powerful enough to accomplish that.

That's pretty heavy speculation. Where is it said that the defenses were breached by Voldemort personally, or that it was done by a single spell. It could just as well have been dozens of Death Eaters casting a variety of offensive curses and jinxes that broke the defenses. Unless you can site a specific instance for support, this will be removed. - Nick O'Demus 05:24, October 11, 2010 (UTC)
The only things I've been able to find so far in Deathly Hallows are:
p.600 - Flitwick: "You realize of course, that nothing we do will be able to keep out You-Know-Who indefinitely?"
p.609 - McGonagall: "We have already placed protection around the castle, but it is unlikely to hold for very long unless we reinforce it."
Neither instance makes mention of a specific spell, nor that breaching the defenses was actually done by Voldemort personally. For all this indicates, it's just as likely the defense could have been overwhelmed by a hundred Death Eaters using a variety of curses, hexes, and jinxes simultaneously. - Nick O'Demus 19:22, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

You can't delete this page. It needed appearances, I gave it appearances. Make the Verify disappear. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

Your list of appearances doesn't change anything, because the book version of Deathly Hallows doesn't mention any specific "penetration spell" cast by Voldemort, and there's no way to know yet if part two of the film version does either. Emmy () 13:28, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
Someone could just as easily say that Michael Jackson appears in Deathly Hallows, but that doesn't make it so. I've asked for the page number of an appearance or mention that would verify that Hogwarts' defenses were breached by a single, specific spell, and that this spell was used by Voldemort personally. None has yet been provided. If the above pages I referenced are the only basis for this supposed spell, that's speculation to the point of borderline fanon. - Nick O'Demus 13:33, October 17, 2010 (UTC)
