I think it's fair to assume that Dumbledore and the rest of the Order figured it out. Dumbledore (and Snape, for one) knew Voldemort was going to kill Harry. So when his parents wind up dead and the house is blown to pieces, yet Harry has nothing but a dark magic scar on his forehead, they knew.

Couldn't they tell from V.'s wand? They could have done that last cast spell thing, right?

It's still a mystery what happened to his wand, I think. Somehow it ended up with Wormtail in the graveyard in Goblet. Presumably he would have had to have gotten it from Godric's Hollow.

Agreed. I read a story once about how Harry defeated Voldemort by pushing him down a flight of stairs in their first encounter.

Doesn't it all have to do with whatever it is which seems to be like the Wizarding World's Patriot Act?

I mean, they apparently keep tabs on magic when it is used (though not necessarily who did it).

They cited Harry for breaking the underage laws when Dobby used his magic on the Dursley's guests. The Ministry obviously had detected this.

Harry was again cited for using the Patronus in front of Dudley. This shows that they clearly can know what specific spell was used.

Clearly the Ministry knows when a spell is used. They also know where and what spell.

I don't think the Ministry does know all that much about it. They claim to keep tabs on underage magic, but I'm willing to bet that they don't keep tabs on all underage magic. Harry Potter is most likely a special case.

I hear that. I mean, why wasn't Hermione slapped with sanctions for the few simple spells she tells us that she had tried when we first meet her. Similarly, in the same scene, Ron is also using magic (though on the train may be ok).

Isn't it more likely they are keeping tabs on when Harry uses magic, than when anyone uses it? They don't like the lad i think.

Isn't that what I just said?

I don't even think it is that they don't like them. It's more likely Dumbledore has a hand in this. We already know he watches over Harry way more than Harry realises.

Ooops yeah
:twss:!

I haven't read the books, so I dunno but I agree, that Dumbledor must know more about Harry than I've seen so far.
that funky blonde lass is funny as well, she in the next one? (the one who can see the invisble animal thingys)

Yeah, Looney Lovegood, does she get more prominent? (and did I read she won that part ina competition? If she did then kudos, she was class as the likeable loon)

Luna is in the new movie, yes. And in Hallows as well. She (Evanna Lynch) didn't win it in a competition, but she won the role after auditioning amongst about 10,000 other girls. JK Rowling has said she's perfect for the role. Lynch was a huge fan before she got the role. She seems a good kid.

Her role doesn't really become much more prominent, but she becomes a close friend of Harry's.

You really ought to read the books, I hear they're quite good. :)

I listened to the audiobooks while commuting to work. The reader, Jim Dale, is brilliant.

YOU'RE A 31 YEAR OLD SINGLE BLOKE? :mishchief: I'm 38 and I have read the whole series, I'm man enough to admit it. They really are good.

In the last book it is said that the Ministry can know that a spell was permorfed in a certain house, but not who actually performed it (as when Potter was cited for a spell performed by the elf). In Potter's case, they can easily detect him doing magic because he is the only wizard in his house.

Oh, yes...I've read all the books and found them nice. Am I man enough, too? Or a just a person with a lot of time to waste? :D
(just kidding...)

Not sure if this has been posted before, but saw it on the Empire website and found it mildly amusing. There are some good mock-ups, but mostly I found them "meh".

Harry Potter poster mash-ups.

Some of those were quite good, but I couldn't help but think "FilmWise could do better".

Also, the Black Snake Moan poster really was a missed opportunity. How do you have the word "hotter" in the tagline and fail to make it into "Potter"?
