How many people knew that Harry was living with the Dursleys before going to Hogwarts? Was it well known that he was with Muggles, or was the whole community wondering what in the hell happened to him?

This was brought on by staggers question. Did people like Lupin or the Weasleys know Harry Potter was with Muggles?

If the wizardry world did know, I wonder if they made jokes about it. xD
In GoF, in Chapter 1, when Frank Bryce is eavesdropping on Babymort (I am so using this forever, I love this term!) and Wormtail, LV mentions "one more death, and my path to Harry Potter is clear" or somesuch.  And he's expecting Wormtail to do the murder.

Who is to be murdered?  Barty Crouch Sr?  Mad-Eye Moody? 

And why?

I've never understood this passage, when Bertha Jorkins was already killed at this point by Babymort after he broke all her memory charms, and no one else died between that time and the graveyard as a direct consequence of LV getting his new body and/or getting Harry to the graveyard.    Barty Sr was only killed after he broke free from the imperious curse placed upon him and was killed to prevent him getting to Dumbledore.  And Moody wasn't killed related to the plot in GoF at all.  So who was supposed to die?

How does Lupin know so much about Dark Creatures? Enough that that's basically all he taught about in his DADA class. I would guess because as a werewolf he would have more information than most, but do you think he studied them at one point?

And as an offshoot of that, what was Lupin doing the whole time that Sirius was in Azkaban? Why did he never try to contact Harry?

What a great idea for a com!

My questions that I've always wanted to have answered (I don't think anyone but JKR could, and they're probably caused by editing errors) are:
  • Who was the old man LV used Nagini to kill (when Dumbledore and Harry are talking about his horcruxes in HBP)?  You'd think it was Frank Bryce from their discussion (the caretaker/gardener of the Riddle house), but I'm pretty sure LV killed him with avada kedavra in GOF.
  • Did Harry have to pay (1) for the damage the dragon did to Gringott's and (2) for the loss of the dragon?
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Hey, new members!

I'll start the questions:

Did Voldemort have Nagini during the first war?

It seems like no one can give me a definite answer to this one!
