The results are in from our latest homepage poll. Back in December, we asked readers: "The first Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them teaser trailer is out! What do you think?" Not surprisingly, the overwhelming favorite response was "So excited!! I need a full trailer immediately!" with 2639 votes, for an overall percentage of 79.08% of all the votes. Coming in second place, 501 of you said "There's not enough in the teaser to decide how I feel about the spinoffs yet!" for an overall percentage of 15.01% of all votes. Well, now that we've had a full trailer, I hope you're excited for the film! And finally, 197 voters said that "These movies were a bad decision," for a total of 5.9% of all votes. Well, I certainly can't say that I think…Read more >

Our Time-Turner feature on the Harry Potter Wiki continues, thanks to the help of Hunnie Bunn.
Take a trip back into the history of the Harry Potter Wiki with Harry Potter Wiki:Time-Turner - Minerva McGonagall. This time around, we look back at the article as it was on August 6, 2007, about two years and a month after the Harry Potter Wiki was first founded. Things have come a long way since then, as Minerva McGonagall is now a thriving, featured article with numerous sections and, of course, the latest info from Pottermore. In fact, a while back, McGonagall's page was featured on Wikia as our choice for the best article on the wiki.
Looking back to 2007, while the page was much shorter, many of the basics were still in place, including some …Read more >
Greetings everyone, and welcome to the Lord Voldemort Wiki!*
I Lord Voldemort am pleased to welcome you to this new, improved, purely pure version of the wiki. A bastion of Dark Magic, join us now on the quest for immortality.

Of course, in looking back, there was one glaring omission from the poll, and that was Ginny Weasley. I'm sure there's many guys out there that would want her to be their Valentine, but I guess there's always next year.

Severus Snape and Lord Voldemort combined also managed to pull in over 200 votes. Not that Harry Potter and Ronald Weasley didn't have their fans also, with Har…
