Harry Potter Wiki


What's with all these stub articles on background characters?

They are extras. Nothing more. What is with all these stub articles of random individuals who serve no purpose other than background? It makes the wiki look cluttered and unprofessional.

If you MUST have these (Which you really don't) , why not make a page for ALL the minor/extra characters, and put them ALL on one page? That would look a lot better.

  • Unidentified Hogwarts Hufflepuff boy who carried a body during the Battle of Hogwarts
  • Unidentified Hogwarts Ravenclaw boy who carried a body during the Battle of Hogwarts
  • Unidentified Hogwarts student who was petrified in the Battle of Hogwarts

Why do we need these?

The article titled "Unidentified female Hogwarts blonde student who tended injured next to Molly Weasley"

I'm sorry but that's just ridiculous. If you need to be THAT specific, then what's the point? You don't even see these people for more than a few seconds.

There really is no need to write an article on every singe face you see.

If there is a possibility that they could be a identifiable character in the book, that's a different story.

Just sayin'. It's going a little bit overboard.

At this rate we might as well make an article on every individual creature in the movie.

Article: "Unidentified Pixie That Hermione Smacks With Her Defence Against The Dark Arts Textbook"
