Judith McKenna RequestEdit

Hello! Can Wikipedians at WikiProject Biography review a request to firm up a few things at Talk:Judith McKenna? My request aims to confirm Mrs. McKenna's year and place of birth, add her role as CFO at Asda, and fix a typo. I am the official Walmart representative on Wikipedia. Like my colleague before me, I am limiting myself to Talk pages because of my conflict of interest. If there are questions, I'm happy to answer them. Thanks, Elizabeth at Walmart (talk) 19:19, 5 December 2018 (UTC)

Hello Elizabeth at Walmart. Please use the {{Request edit}} template to make edit requests. – Joe (talk) 20:06, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
This request was answered, but thank you for your advice, User:Joe Roe. I will certainly keep that in mind for future requests. Elizabeth at Walmart (talk) 22:18, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Rosco McGlashanEdit

 

The article Rosco McGlashan has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

WP:N The page lacked any non-primary references, and while I managed to find one to save from WP:BLPPROD, I still question notability and would like to consult the Wikipedia community as to whether this article should remain.

Discussion at Passengers of the RMS TitanicEdit

I opened a proposal to trim the passenger lists at Passengers of the RMS Titanic a few weeks ago. We've only received a few responses. so I'm reaching out to related Wikiprojects for more input. Editors are invited to join the discussion here. Thanks –dlthewave 20:56, 7 December 2018 (UTC)

Assessments of draftsEdit

Hello biography writers  

For Assessment you follow Category:Unassessed biography articles, but it does not seem to contain drafts. Is this intentional? The reason I'm asking is because I mark drafts with wikiproject tags routinely, biographies are quite common, and I would like to ensure they are on your radar.

--Gryllida (talk) 03:16, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Yes, the template is clever enough to detect that they're drafts and put them in Category:Draft-Class biography articles instead. – Joe (talk) 06:13, 8 December 2018 (UTC)
Nice, thanks. :-) Added this link to the category page (to both, actually) to make the connection more visible and discoverable. Gryllida (talk) 23:46, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Janet Brown GuernseyEdit

User:Neurocogsci/sandbox Is this biography ready for main space (is it notable enough)? Neurocogsci (talk) 18:09, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

KATHRINE WINDFELDEdit

I just wonder: If Kathrine Windfeld died 6 February 2015, how is she still able to play? See http://www.windfeldmusic.dk/

Looks like Mark Twain who said: "The reports about my death are greatly exaggerated...."

You need to pay more attention. That website is for Kathrine Windfeld (musician) [da]. -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 00:54, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Natascha Sadr Haghighian - I have doubts whether this is a real person?Edit

It doesn't look like this has had much/any attention. I have placed a query on the talk page. Can someone with greater expertise than me look it over and formulate a plan of action, should any be needed? If this is the wrong place for such a query, please point me oin the right direction? Thank you MegaSloth (talk) 12:08, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
