CreationEdit

This page was created to alievate the ever-growing length of the University of Waterloo page, due to the enormity (and arbitrary addition of names) of this section. JamieJones talk 23:30, 7 March 2006 (UTC)

SectionsEdit

I've attempted to sort this page based on the field in which the person is famous. --Jdeboer 19:07, 11 March 2006 (UTC)

I like it, but we should sort them all. I'll try. JamieJones talk 12:31, 18 March 2006 (UTC)

VerificationEdit

This page is getting large and hard to verify. I think we need to post supporting criteria for each person, like a footnote for each, as per the policy on verfiability. I'll look some up eventually, but if it's not done, I think I'll start removing unverifiable names from the list. JamieJones talk 14:16, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

But I'm not sure how to verify they were waterloo grads. Ideas?
Quote from newspapers or bios. DoubleBlue (Talk) 20:28, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Feature list?Edit

I have to oppose this right now, because there are non-notable people on the list. The one that comes to mind is Erik Demaine. Once the non-notables are cleaned up, it should be good to go. GreenJoe 03:47, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

  • I disagree Find sources: Google (books · news · newspapers · scholar · free images · WP refs· FENS · JSTOR · NYT · TWL. DoubleBlue (Talk) 05:03, 15 April 2008 (UTC)
    • I also disagree. Plus, I made this list in order to list as many people as I could find that had an article on Wikipedia and had some relation to UW, so notability is not a question that should be raised here. If you are concerned about the person's notability, then it is better to bring it up on that article with WP:CSD, WP:AFD, or WP:PROD. Gary King (talk) 06:01, 15 April 2008 (UTC)

Just to chime in with my opinion (however late it may be), the guy received an AWARD. A SINGLE award, mind you. From the University of Waterloo. He was not a Student. He was not a TA. He was not a Professor. President. Administrative staff. Janitor. This is the equivalent of listing me on the Queen Elizabeth II page because I was awarded the "Queen Elizabeth II Aiming for the Top" scholarship. --192.75.71.133 (talk) 03:19, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

He was a graduate student and completed his PhD at the University of Waterloo. Gary King (talk) 03:24, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

Terribly sorry. I didn't finish reading to the end of the sentence. You may disregard my fodder :)--192.75.71.133 (talk) 04:11, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

He may not be of significant interest to you (or even to me) but he passes WP:Notability because he has been noted by reliable sources (Erik Demaine#References) and meets the Core content policies. DoubleBlue (Talk) 04:10, 10 October 2008 (UTC)
