Q. What is the timeline based on?
A. Our timeline works off the fact that Nearly Headless Nick died in 1492 and had his 500th deathday party in Chamber of Secrets, which means that book starts in 1992. The rest of the dates are determined as best as we can with information from the books.

Q. What do the plusses mean in the timeline?
A. Each '+' indicates an additional day after the previous date ('++' is two days after, etc.)

Q. What do the different text colors in the database mean?
A. Purple text indicates information that came from J.K. Rowling (official site and various interviews) and not actually from the books themselves. These are only used to fill in some blanks, but we try to stick with what can be found directly from the books.
     Red text indicates information found in the supplementary volume, Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them.
     Green text (excluding the Timeline) indicates information found in the supplementary volume, Quidditch Through the Ages.

Q. Which book editions does the information (page numbers) come from?
A. The American hard cover editions are used for the references.

Q. Why can't I view the character profiles?
A. Javascript must be enabled to view the profiles.
