If you were to copy the list of people from competitive strategies (giving proper credit, of course) on to the category page, then people would have the opportunity to scan the list and see if anyone they know is there, and if so, linking them to the category. That might provide an additional motivator to see how many on the list can be linked to WikiTree profiles. Of course, as others have said, there may be people with WikiTree profiles who should be on the list but aren't. Link them to the category, too!
Categories of events and links like this are wonderful not only for genealogy but for making history come alive. I count myself as a history buff, but had never heard of the War of Regulation until now.
