The Deathly Hallows symbol


I read in the comments that someone has noticed the Deathly Hallows symbol that has begun to appear on various pages of the Lexicon. If you roll your mouse over it, you’ll see why it’s there. It means that the page has been updated through book seven and is now conisdered correct as of the end of the series.

This symbol doesn’t necessarily mean that the page was changed. Some pages don’t need any updates from book seven. However, if the symbol appears on the page it indicates that the page has been reviewed and any updates or edits have been made.

Does this mean the end of edits and updates? Of course not! Just look at what the last two Wizards of the Month on Jo’s site have done! I expect we’ll be updating and editing for years to come. We’re also working on several projects which will only improve the Lexicon and your ability to interact with canon information. We’re constantly adding information to the Canon Portkey, for example. John has been adding material from book seven and soon you’ll be able to get a nice outline of the book, the way you can for the others (try this outline of book three, just for fun).

I’ve been working on some of the pages about Hogwarts too. What was once a fairly boring page of text (one which has been plagiarized by other sites so many times I’ve lost count), is now being enhanced with maps and charts and other material. You can see one part of the new Hogwarts section here. Note that this is an unfinished page, so be patient. Eventually we’ll have pages like this for every floor of the castle. Notice that I’ve obtained permission from Harper Robertson to include her excellent, fanatically researched floorplans of the castle.

As always, we welcome your comments, criticisms, and suggestions.
