squib[edit]

(Harry Potter sense). A Harry Potter coinage. Any independent use? Dmcdevit·t 04:54, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

I think is worth keeping the sense; J K Rowling is using the word in a variation of the standard meaning. Or, perhaps better, move to a usage note; there are a lot of people (kids ;-) who might very well look up squib. Did this; I think that is all we need? (and it certainly is worth noting!)

I don't know. I'm in support of the "someone might look this up" concerns, but isn't that why we have {{wikipedia|Blood_purity_(Harry_Potter)#Squibs}}? Dmcdevit·t 02:00, 19 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Totally wrong. If it's a verb - it can't be defined as "the action of ...". I would have just reverted it. SemperBlotto (talk) 22:03, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Yes I just formatted it (and it's still bad after that) so I wish I'd just killed it with extreme prejudice. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:05, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
It sounds like lazy usage of scribble. JamesjiaoTC 22:09, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
