For the same reasons I gave in my edit summary. We do not copy content from Wikipedia. If you wish to rewrite the article in your own words then fine. Jayden Matthews 20:44, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
You don't understand. The information may have been originally found at Wikipedia, but the text of the article itself was not. Again, we do not copy content from Wikipedia. If the article contains false information then correct it with your own words. if you continue to copy and pased articles from Wikipedia to this site you may find yourself banned from editing.

I recommend reading our policies, specifically the content policy. This will help you understand what is and is not allowed in our articles. Please always sign talk page entries using 4 tildes (~). Also be aware it is common practice to respond to user talk entries on the other user's talk page by starting a section titled "Re: Title on your talk page", for instance to respond to this entry you would go to my user talk page and start a section titled "Re: Mahogany". -Shorty1982 23:30, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
@shorty i understand about canon sources. the problem in this instance, was that the info being change had nothing to do with the harry potter world. the orignal quoted information by a previous member and the information i was trying to correct it to were both from wikipedia. given the fact that the info hasnt been changed since i reposted it after this discussion, im guessing the latest draft is acceptable.
